Calm Your Anxiety and Live Your Best Life with Acupuncture

Acupuncture works with your body so that you feel better and live longer naturally. When I first opened my practice in 1998, one of my first patients was a young mother with anxiety and panic attacks when driving, especially when crossing bridges.

Injecting Acupoints with Autologous Blood Decreases Atopic Dermatitis.

I’ve wondered about this for awhile whether simply injecting with something safe, patient’s own blood, would lead to a more robust immune response.

Successfully treated recalcitrant atopic eczema with acupoint autologous blood injection

I love this study.  I’ve wondered for awhile if a patient’s own blood would invoke a more robust and long-lasting immune response.  In this case study, it certainly seemed to work! My teachers from Shanghai used to say if you get a bruise with treatment, “it will give lasting results.”  I always thought that was…

Life Extension Episode Matt Kaeberlein on Tim Ferriss Podcast

I’m interested (aren’t we all?)  in the latest life extension “science” . Science is in quotes because so much of it is still unproven and we are not sure of the real safety.  He gives an anecdote about taking rapamycin to cure his frozen shoulder and it worked.  This is obviously anecdotal, and so I’m…

Celebrity Acupuncture: Meghan Markle and Acupuncture for Depression and Migraine

She became a “believer” in acupuncture after it cured her migraines.  That is a reason that I love to treat migraines.  It is a very clear cut result, and it convinces patients that it works. https://www.hellomagazine.com/healthandbeauty/health-and-fitness/20220509139717/meghan-markle-acupuncture-mental-health-benefits/ s a native Californian, it’s no surprise Meghan Markle turns to wellness practices to support her mental health.
