Verified review

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.

Dale Fanning is a wonderful acupuncturist. He achieves comprehensive, lasting healing by blending his skill in acupuncture with a high level of intuition, patience and empathy. He imbues the Chinese Medicine view of whole body health with these attributes and the results are nothing short of fantastic. I went to Dale with a constellation of symptoms including chronic illness, musculoskeletal issues thru years of wear and tear on the body, as well as basic urban stress and insomnia. At my initial intake, and now updated at my weekly visit, Dale tales the time to get a thorough view of my health history and current state. His treatments consistently reset the dials, improve my condition and leave me feeling centered and full of life force! The sessions themselves are deeply restful; most of the time I fall into a deep sleep as the parasympathetic nervous system is allowed to kick in. This carries over into the evenings where I always sleep best on treatment days. Overall my conditions have improved substantially. As many people do, I regularly receive chiropractic treatment, massage, physical therapy for specific muscles/joints and have a great family doctor. Of all the things I do, the treatments with Dale are the deepest are always the most effective across the board. This is due to the very nature of Acupuncture, which is it treats the source and the symptom. Over the last 15 years I've received treatment from some of the most well-known and highly respected acupuncturists in the Bay Area and the west coast. I took a lot of care and time to write this review as I would never suggest a practitioner to someone lightly. I recommend Dale without hesitation. His treatments are on par with best in field, and in his own style, he surpasses my previous experiences. I understand he is working in the fertility field and have heard nothing but accolades from his patients I meet in the waiting room. He seems to have a capabilities across a wide range of issues. I say he gets extra points as he has gone to lengths to be able to accept multiple insurance plans to make it possible for the largest number of people to be treated. 5 stars for Dr Dale for sure.

    I had the fortune of meeting Joe three years ago and at the time I had some high expectations for my overall fitness growth. Joe ended up becoming my one stop shop due to his immense knowledge in wellness and fitness. Some areas I have used Joe's expertise - Strength, flexibility, nutrition and therapy. Joe incorporates all these elements into his teaching and he makes it pretty simple. For my personal growth I have used his guidance with gymnastic style body weight and Kettlebells. What I truly appreciate the most is attention to form and injury prevention. Of course, along the way I have had my share of injurys and have sought Joe for therapy and acupuncture!! I have never done acupuncture before and Joe has made me a believer. I'm grateful for his guidance and as I head into my 40's I can say I'm stronger and healthier overall than ever before in my life.

    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.

    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).

    How often do you need to get acupuncture?

    How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
