acupuncture + microneedling 


acupuncture in santa barbara and ventura california

The use of sterile, single use acupuncture needles, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion and bodywork to facilitate the body’s return to balance. In addition to musculoskeletal needs, acupuncture has been shown to have an effect on internal medicine and energetic balance. Herbal medicine can easily be used in conjunction with bodywork and acupuncture.

Specializing in:

Orthopedics, women's health, fertility, musculoskeletal issues, sports medicine, post-surgery recovery, digestive health, immune support, stress, anxiety, weight management, disordered eating and body dysmorphia recovery.

My approach: Depending on the current needs of the patient I shift between different styles of acupuncture needling. For orthopedic pain and sports medicine I tend toward motor point and trigger point needling when it is right for the patient. Alternative styles used include more subtle needling techniques and/or distal techniques. At time energetic acupuncture is appropriate along with energy work, gua sha or bodywork. The ability to be nimble in technique allows opportunity and flexibility in the treatment process.

Microneedling is an effective, non-toxic and non-surgical modality for facial rejuvenation. Simply put microneedling is the use of very fine needles at the surface of the skin to promote the production of collagen, the breakdown of discoloration and scars and increase the absorption of products by 2000%, all while preserving the integrity of the outermost layer of the skin. Safe and effective, results last for 3-5 years after a treatment series. 

We use concentrated Traditional Chinese Medicine organic herbal hyaluronic acid serums to target specific needs such as under-eye discoloration or mature skin. In addition, we offer traditional full-body acupuncture to achieve exceptional results by stimulating renewal both topically and internally.
