Ancient Medicine Made Modern

Ancient techniques for modern health challenges

There’s no need to suffer through everyday pain, stress, and illness. Acupuncture is a scientifically-proven treatment that reduces stress and relieves common health problems. Rooted in ancient Chinese medicine and endorsed by Western science, each acupuncture session stimulates your nervous system to promote healing and induce relaxation.

Allergies & Immunity

FIND FREEDOM FROM PESKY REACTIONS

Sneezing, puffy eyes, runny nose, eczema, and asthma are all too common to allergy sufferers. Allergic reactions happen when the immune system overreacts to harmless stimuli. But there is relief in sight. Acupuncture can calm your immune system’s hyperactivity to reduce or even eliminate your seasonal and ongoing allergies for good.

Stress

RELEASE YOUR TENSION & CALM THE SYSTEM

Controlling stress is a key aspect of solid, holistic health. When your body is flooded with stress hormones, the inflammatory response disrupts many other systems and organs including digestion, immune responses, endocrine activity, heart health, and more. Acupuncture uses targeted points to reduce inflammation and promote relaxation, positive mood, better sleep, and even longevity.

Anxiety & Depression

RESTORE YOUR BODY’S NATURAL BALANCE

Anxiety and depression dominate our Western culture. Medications don’t always work, have unwanted side effects, and can even exacerbate symptoms. Growing evidence proves electroacupuncture (electrical stimulation + acupuncture) positively treats mood disorders by increasing endorphins, reducing the body’s stress response, and balancing neurochemistry.

Pain & Migraine

STOP THE MISERY BEFORE IT EVEN STARTS

More than just a headache, a migraine’s intense pain and debilitating side effects make normal daily living almost impossible. And some medications may make symptoms even worse. Luckily, there’s a better way. Acupuncture works differently and prevents the problem in the first place. Using research-based techniques, sessions provide autonomic balance and relaxation to prevent the triggers that cause migraines.

DR. KRISTEN SPARROW

Western Medicine Meets
Eastern Healing Methods

As a board-certified anesthesiologist and pediatrician, I understand the importance of evidence-based medical research. And as a patient, I’ve personally experienced relief from debilitating conditions through acupuncture. 

When you feel like you’ve tried everything to feel better, you’ll do anything to find relief. At least that’s my story. After practicing as a San Francisco-based anesthesiologist for 11 years, my allergies became so crippling I could no longer work. That’s when I discovered acupuncture. Since then, I’ve devoted myself full-time to helping others gain freedom from pain, discomfort, stress, anxiety, and allergies through acupuncture. My research and practice focus on calming the body’s stress response which helps with inflammation, pain, and mood, bringing wellness back to your life.
