I highly recommend Shawna. She is genuine, warm, caring, knowledgeable, and professional. I saw Shawna regularly for eight months while was working on my doctorate and was in the process of writing my dissertation. My sessions with Shawna were therapeutic. She took the time to listen and get to know me to provide a personalized acupuncture treatment. I believe that the combination of talking with Shawna before each treatment and the treatment itself helped me through one of the most difficult periods of my life. Shawna has a natural ability to be able to listen and offer invaluable guidance without judgment or overstepping. Shawna is in tune and sensitive to the needs of patients. Working with Shawna was empowering and taught me how to take an active role in addressing and healing my anxiety outside of the acupuncture treatments. I am forever grateful for her help through that difficult time.
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.
Dr. Gigi's healing hands worked wonders on a painful shoulder I experienced recently. After one treatment, the pain was gone. More than that, her overall care of me from visit to visit gives me balance and perspective in both body and soul, and for that I'm truly grateful!
Ive 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 youd 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.

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.

I am a California state licensed acupuncturist and certified massage therapist who specializes in treating stress, anxiety, and painful conditions using traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). 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.

After living and practicing acupuncture in Japan for more than 20 years, I have a very clear sense of how acupuncture works for many different kinds of bodies and conditions. Everyone creates a unique set of imbalances that gradually cause their everyday well-being and life enjoyment to diminish. The degree to which we suffer is a direct result of how we have been using our body or misusing our body. In most cases, very simple pain-free treatments get the body to remember its innate healing potential and natural vitality. The various physiological systems return to more efficient homeostatic balances, reducing the stress and strain that may cause fatigue, lowered immune responses, autoimmune responses, poor digestion, weight gain or loss, elevated blood pressure, poor sleep, and emotional ups and downs. Our bodies strive to make balance, whether it is a large sin curve like a tsunami or gentle ripple on the surface of a lake on a late summer afternoon-- this choice is totally within our control. Take control of your well-being, take responsibility for your lifestyle, and enjoy the benefits of an efficient body. I can help you get there! My pricing is reasonable and will make every effort to help you use your health insurance to make treatments even more affordable.
