Modalities

Jiling incorporates various Chinese medicine and holistic tools.

Cupping

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.

E- Stim

Aka. "Electrical Stimulation," or "Electro-Acupuncture." Connecting needles to a micro/ milli current initiates light muscular contractions, encourages cellular regeneration, and releases tension to relieve pain.

Health Consult

We prescribe therapeutic dietary, lifestyle, and exercise recommendations to support your health, including herbs & yoga.

Moxibustion

Warming the Mugwort plant (Artemisia vulgaris) near/ on acupuncture points stimulates local circulation.

Guasha

Lightly scraping a guasha tool along the skin draws toxins to the surface, alleviating musculoskeletal & internal conditions.

Tuning Forks

Applying tuning forks to acupressure points vibrationally balances your body. Gentle and relaxing, these are perfect for children and those sensitive to needles.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is effective for a wide range of conditions. Even if you are in great health, acupuncture can improve your quality of life by enhancing your mood, boosting energy, and supporting your body's innate healing mechanisms.

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 downstream. Acupuncture opens up blockages to free the meridian-river's flow, recalibrating smoothly flowing whole-systems health. Acupuncture also releases endorphins, regulates hormones and brain chemicals, and optimizes balanced homeostasis.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture usually does not hurt. We insert filiform needles into specific locations. You might feel the initial light prick, but that sensation usually subsides quickly. Most people feel deeply relaxed and fall asleep during acupuncture. We balance your comfort with your health goals. Needle-free treatments are also available, such as cupping, herbs, or other modalities.

How often should I get acupuncture? 

The frequency of acupuncture treatment depends on your body, how you respond to treatment, and your condition. An acute condition may require weekly acupuncture for four weeks, whereas a chronic condition may necessitate a monthly maintenance treatment. Commit to nourishing yourself with acupuncture, to create lasting change in your body!

Do you accept insurance?

We accept some insurance policies. Please visit our Insurance page to learn more!

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!

How does acupuncture treat pain? 

Acupuncture deliberately and progressively desensitizes an over-stimulated nervous system to heal your perception of tissue damage, while provoking endogenous systemic control of pain and inflammation. Repeated therapeutic exposure helps transform maladaptive emotional reactions into meditative calm and self-control. Acupuncture helps you restore functional capacity and improve quality of life.

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.

Do you sell herbs?

We only provide custom Chinese medicine granules for current patients. Please visit our Herbs page to learn more! We do not sell or distribute herbal products to non-patients.
