Acupuncture supports your body's self- healing abilities. We gently place thin disposable needles into specific points along meridians. This reduces pain & inflammation, increases circulation & range of motion, normalizes physiological function, decrease side effects from medication- induced nausea, promote relaxation, reduces muscle spasms, and nourishes healthy resilience. Pain- related indications include joint pain, joint stiffness, soft tissue pain/ inflammation, paresthesias, post- surgical pain, muscle spasms, and scar tissue pain. Acupuncture also treats internal medicine conditions and whole systems wellness, including but not limited to emotional, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, and gynecological health.
More Chinese Medicine Modalities
Jiling incorporates various other Chinese medicine tools:
Using gentle heat, we vacuum- suction glass cups onto various areas of the body. Cupping decompresses muscles & soft tissues, increases circulation, promotes relaxation, and releases pain.
Aka. "Electrical Stimulation." Connecting needles to a micro/ milli current initiates light muscular contractions, encourages cellular regeneration, and releases tension. This is especially helpful for chronic pain, radiating nerve pain, and pain in multiple locations.
We prescribe therapeutic dietary, lifestyle, and exercise recommendations to support your health.
Warming the Mugwort plant (Artemisia vulgaris) near acupuncture points increases local circulation through heat.
Lightly scraping a guasha tool along the skin draws toxins to the surface, alleviating both musculoskeletal and internal conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture usually does not hurt. We insert ultra- thin needles into carefully chosen locations. You might feel the initial light prick, but that sensation usually subsides quickly. Sometimes, you may experience tingling or warmth. This indicates that the treatment is active. Most people feel deeply relaxed and fall asleep during acupuncture. Needle- free treatments are also available, such as cupping, herbs, or other modalities.
How does acupuncture work?
The meridians are like rivers flowing through your body. If your river's blocked in one/ more places, then it blocks other areas/ systems further down the line. Acupuncture opens up blockages and frees the meridian- river's flow, creating whole- systems ease and vibrant health. Acupuncture also releases endorphins, regulates hormones and brain chemicals, and optimizes balanced homeostasis.
Why do you look at my tongue and take my pulse?
Chinese medicine diagnosis includes observation, inquiry, and palpation. Your tongue and pulse reflect your whole body's health, beyond what we can discern from questions alone. This helps us form a detailed, comprehensive, and accurate differential diagnosis and nuanced treatment plan.
What training do acupuncturists go through?
Acupuncture regulations vary from state to state in the USA. Most states require graduation from a CCAOM- accredited university, then passing rigorous NCCAOM licensing examinations in both Western & Chinese medical anatomy, physiology, pathology, theory, and treatment. The California Acupuncture Board requires at least 2050 hours of didactic curriculum, with 950 hours of supervised clinical instruction. This takes 3 to 7 years of school, and a lifetime of continued education. Chinese medicine is an art, science, and regulated licensed medical practice!
