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 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.

Joe has helped me with numerous running injuries as well as instructing a kettle bell class that I take. On both counts, Joe is superb. He's keeps me healthy, encourages actions that prevent injuries, improved my fitness level, and most importantly, engages me with a level of care you rarely see from medical professionals. I highly recommend his services without reservation!

I have worked with Joe numerous times to get through sports- related injuries that allowed me to recover much quicker than I otherwise would have without specialized treatment. I'm not a professional athlete. I'm a weekend warrior. But, Joe made me feel like I was a professional athlete, and therein lies the magic.

This was an amazing and humbling experience. I didn't go into it with any expectations, we started off with a casual chat, getting to know each other - which is interesting enough over coffee. Then I was taken on a spiritual journey into my past and through to the future. The answers to my questions were blatantly delivered through a self exploration rather than a dictation. This style is great and apart from a traditional psychic reading. In your session you getting understand each other rather than someone only passing on messages (which was also done). Thank you so much!

Using a unique combination of subtle and physical interventions Oatsinu brings an ancient wisdom to therapy and healing. Native American 'acupuncture', herbs, ceremony and massage restore balance and harmony to restore health and circumstances- a life changing experience can be the result of this level of work: energy, spiritual and physical intervention backing your recovery. I know good work as I have been an acupuncture physician since 1990. Stephen (Jesse) Summers, DOM NM Lic# 239

Sydney is an amazing healer! After each session, I feel so much more relaxed, yet energized. She was able to help me unblock some pain I was feeling all year. She is a great listener, and a terrific acupuncturist. She also gave me Chinese medicine that is helping me with my seasonal allergies. Highly recommended.

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.

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.

About

Kalub Jarosh is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist of Chinese Medicine in California. His primary area of specialization is anxiety, women's health and digestive conditions. He provides outstanding herbal products, acupuncture, wellness health packages and adjunct therapies. Kalub Jarosh Acupuncture is dedicated to making a change in it's patients well being and health. See his website for a complete list of conditions that are treatable by acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Question and answer with Kalub Jarosh L.Ac.: 1. What makes you different from other practitioners? I use biological feedback when I treat using both acupuncture and when I prescribe herbs. This means I look for a direct change in the body when I place a needle or test for a formula. I utilize the bodies' wisdom to balance itself. I believe the body is the most sensitive instrument in existence and has the ability and knowledge to return to a state of wellness with a little help. 2. What is biological feedback? This is the body's reaction to stimulation. I test certain areas to see if pain reduces, allergies change or lessen or if a particular symptom resolves completely. This is a Japanese technique I have been studying and practicing for 3 year now and it is very effective and immediate. Together the patient and I find the most effective treatment through the immediate feedback of the body. This approach allows me to treat with precision and effectiveness. I prescribe herbs in a similar way. 3. What is an initial appointment/session with you like? * I review an intake patient history form downloadable from my website. Next, I draw from numerous assessment techniques to measure tension in the soft tissue, muscles and check reflex response areas. * I than draw on traditional pulse and tongue diagnosis. * 45-60 minutes of acupuncture and other modalities treating the acute symptoms and supporting and strengthening the body so it can better resolve the underlying causes and conditions of the condition. 4. How long will it take to treat my health condition? This is a very common question and it really depends on your individual situation, the length of the ongoing condition and your health in this moment. I can usually give an accurate estimate during the initial free consultation. I speak with you for around 15 minutes on the phone or at my office to get a more detailed picture of your situation. I will let the potential new patient know if I can help or not based on my clinical experience and knowledge. I always encourage people to take advantage of the free consult. It is free valuable information for you and about you. Call us now and start feeling better today!

About

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.

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.
