Your Path from Painful to Playful

Our goal is to dramatically improve the quality of life for people who suffer from chronic and acute pain so they can get back to doing the things they love.

We use acupuncture as part of an integrative approach to ease pain safely and reduce the need for surgery or use of medications.

We offer expertise, education, and results-based solutions for many chronic conditions as varied as:

Pain Relief for Acute Pain

Acupuncture can quickly and effectively address trauma to any part of the body by needling points far from the pain site. It can reduce pain and swelling to improve the blood flow to the injured area, repair the damage, and promote faster healing, and reduce the need for medication.

When surgery is necessary, acupuncture treatments before and after surgery can improve pre-operation conditions, reduce post-operative pain, and speed recovery time.

Acupuncture effectively treats scar tissue, which can be a post-operative source of pain and limit performance. Acupuncture treatments can make the stiff scar tissue more like the surrounding tissue.


Pain Relief for Athletes and Sports Related Injuries

Athletes push themselves to the limits and pain from sports related injuries is inevitable. We offer safe, fast, and effective pain relief to athletes, so that they can get back into the game faster and stronger.

Whether it’s a sudden acute trauma or a cumulative overuse injury, acupuncture treatments accelerate the natural healing process; pain relief is often immediate. Acurate assessment and diagnosis help to prevent further injuries.

We commonly treat these sports injuries:

  • Sprains & Strains
  • Muscle tightness and cramping
  • Overuse injuries
  • Back, hip, knee, elbow pain
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Trauma injuries

Once the injuries are resolved, many of our athletes continue treatment for the benefits of enhanced performance.

If your lifestyle is impaired by chronic pain and you have not tried acupuncture for pain relief, you should make an appointment to discuss treatment options. Schedule your appointment today! Call 650-646-5744 or use the online appointment service:
