Shawna is a caring professional. She customizes her treatments to you after carefully listening to you and your needs. She seems to genuinely care about your well being and health. After a few visits for back pain, I felt much better. Having worked in tech, she understands the stresses that many of us endure and is skilled at helping one achieve the calmness we need for good health. She is particularly good at pain management. I will keep seeing her regularly to maintain my strength.

After going to various community acupuncture clinics for years, I was thrilled to meet a practitioner whose skills far surpassed any I had yet seen. Don is highly intuitive, precise, and his treatments are very effective. He asks good questions, and uses few needles. He gives amazing, strong, and thorough acupressure massages, and he has reasonable rates.

I’ve been seeing Kim for Cosmetic Acupuncture for about 8 months now, I am consistently getting compliments on how youthful my skin looks and bright I am. I feel like in this time working with her that I haven’t aged at all, most of my fine lines have diminished significantly and the quality of my skin is better than ever. I highly recommend her and this treatment if you’re looking for a safe and natural way to enhance your appearance!

Amy is truly a gifted practitioner. She has a genuinely kind heart and it comes across in her treatments. Amy really took the time to talk to me and made me feel at ease. I came to see her feeling run down and extremely stressed. After her acupuncture treatment I left feeling like a whole new person! I very so happy to have discovered Amy, thanks to Thubtack! I have been seeing her regularly for a couples months for both emotional and physical issues and will definitely be seeing her regularly. If you haven't done acupuncture before or are looking for someone, you have to schedule now! In addition to acupuncture she has provided me with resources and ideas on how to round out my treatment plan, I'm grateful to have her in my network of healers.

I’ve sprained my ankle many times before, but never had such a quick recovery. David, who is my neighbor, brought me a Chinese herbal poultice and packed it over the egg- sized ankle. By morning it was merely swollen and he applied it again along with three acupuncture needles. The pain went away quickly and I stayed off it as much as I could. A month later you’d never know it happened.

    I lived with chronic shoulder pain for 15 years. I tried EVERYTHING! Physical therapy, massage, different styles of chiropractic, acupuncture. The list goes on. All of those techniques helped, but nothing got to the root of the problem. I would hit a plateau, they would stop care and it would come back a few months later. Then I found Connection Chiropractic. They use a very gentle technique that doesn't feel scary at all like some other kinds of adjustments. I saw results instantly! I just felt stronger and more connected to my body. The pain started reducing pretty quickly and now a year into my care here (and only getting adjusted once a month at this point) my left shoulder feels like my right shoulder!!! I didn't even know that was possible! The best part was starting to notice the other benefits I was receiving as well. I sleep better, I have more energy and I just don't react to stressful situations the same way. I feel much more even-keeled. Thank you Connection Chiropractic! I didn't know I could feel this great.

    About

    Lamorinda Acupuncture and Healing Arts (LHA) is an integrative traditional Chinese medicine clinic offering effective and safe treatment of a broad range of chronic and acute medical issues. Our specialty is in the use of traditional Chinese medical techniques, such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary therapies, tui na massage, and the integration of other modalities to form a holistic approach to treatment, in addition to being well versed in Western medical modalities. As acupuncture and Chinese medicine become more mainstream and less of a fringe medical option, the number of practitioners for you to choose from also increases. There are now over 12,000 licensed acupuncturists in the United States, with the greatest concentration right here in the Bay Area. As a potential patient, how do you choose the practitioner who's right for you? Here at Lamorinda Healing Arts, we believe that your relationship with your practitioner is every bit as important to the healing process as your practitioner's skill with his or her modality of choice. You may go to several different acupuncturists who employ the same techniques, perhaps even use the same points, but with one you experience a much greater improvement than with others. Why is this? Our experience in practice tells us that, beyond technique, point selection or even the placebo effect, a patient's ability to feel comforted, heard, and understood by his or her practitioner, "good rapport", is essential to a positive outcome. We pride ourselves on taking the time necessary to hear you out, to really connect person-to-person, and tailor our treatment to your individual needs. Philosophically, we're a little bit unlike the other clinics you have previously been to, for acupuncture or otherwise. We expect you to be curious, take an active role in your treatment, and do some assignment. We are expecting for results and quickly. We'll be happy to refer you to someone whom we believe is more equipped to do so if we don't get them. In that vein, we also believe that no healing approach is superior to any other; each is suitable to a given degree and for a given situation. We are glad to work with you, together with your other practitioners, to find the correct mix of treatment options to meet your specific needs. We work extensively with other medical doctors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, craniosacral workers, and others who may complement what we do. Most of those currently practicing Chinese medicine were trained in what we like to call "communist Chinese medicine", the standards developed by the current government of mainland China. While we were trained and tested in these methods as well, we are primarily informed by precommunist styles of practice learned through our mentors and the continuing education we received from them. We see medicine as an art as much as a science, as a sociological experience as much as a scientific one. As such, the concept of a medical "practice" is quite a literal interpretation of what we do. Every interaction, every view of a given condition is a unique opportunity not only for you to learn about the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine but also for us to learn about your uniqueness in the context of your reasons for seeing us. Because to us, a medical practice is every bit as much a meditation on being human as it is a chance for healing and change.

    About

The TCM modalities I use include acupuncture, tui na therapeutic bodywork, cupping, moxibustion, and Chinese herbal medicine. Chinese medicine can be used to prevent problems, not just correct them. By keeping the body's energy in balance, health is maintained. This is true not only for physical fitness, but for mental and emotional health as well. I am also a practitioner and teacher of Filipino martial arts and Jeet Kune Do/MMA concepts, and as both an L.Ac. and CMT, I am especially qualified to understand and treat musculoskeletal pain issues that can arise from injury or years of use.

    What are the benefits of acupuncture?

    There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

    How does acupuncture work?

    Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

    Is it safe to use acupuncture?

    The general consensus from doctors, researchers and government health organizations is that yes, it is safe to have acupuncture. As with all things, there can be some risks associated with acupuncture, but with proper attention to a few key details, your health should be in good hands when you receive treatments.

    The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) states that “relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. Still, complications have resulted from use of non-sterile needles and improper delivery of treatments.” Thus, the health risks associated with acupuncture are generally a result of human error (non-sterile needles and improper placement) as opposed to how acupuncture works in your body. Research your acupuncture provider to make sure they meet state regulations, and inquire about the use of FDA-regulated acupuncture needles. These are classified as medical devices for use by licensed practitioners, and the NCCIH states they are required to be manufactured and labeled according to certain standards (sterile, nontoxic, and labeled for single use only).

    What is an acupuncture treatment?

    An acupuncture treatment is a type of integrative health care session that uses needles (and sometimes heat and/or electrical stimulation) to stimulate the body’s nervous system to begin a healing process. Long practiced in traditional Chinese medicine and other Eastern cultures, acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance and use as a complementary and integrative part of healing in Western medicine. During an acupuncture treatment, the patient lies in a relaxed position on a table that is very similar to a massage table. The acupuncturist, having done a diagnosis of health concerns and determined a course of treatment, will insert thin stainless steel needles into the prescribed acupuncture points. These points are determined by the patient’s health needs. The practitioner may gently manipulate the needles to trigger a healing response in the body. Typically there is no pain associated with the treatment. A session may use anywhere from 6-30 needles or more, depending on what illness is being treated. The needles can remain in place for 5-30 minutes, with 15 minutes being a common time. Acupuncture treatments are often prescribed in a series, based on patient need.
