Traditional & Esoteric Acupuncture Services
Acupuncture is one of the oldest continuous systems of medicine in history, with recorded instances dating as far back as 2,000 years. Acupuncture is an effective strategy to treat a wide variety of illnesses and conditions ranging from weight loss and smoking cessation to pain and infertility.
In addition to offering traditional acupuncture at our clinic in San Diego, we also provide Esoteric Acupuncture which focuses on prevention, wellness, and spiritual growth. It combines various elements of alchemy, astrology, sacred geometry, the Kabalistic tree of life, and the Hindu Chakra system with Traditional Chinese Acupuncture points and philosophies to support one’s physical wellness and spiritual evolution; generating a higher awareness of one’s interconnectedness to the global and cosmic community. In Esoteric Acupuncture we use thinner needles retained for longer periods of time and positioned more superficially than with Traditional Acupuncture. Points are inserted in a specific encoding pattern and sequence corresponding to the Chakra of the pattern being applied. As a result, treatments tend to feel much deeper and far reaching than Traditional Acupuncture, as each pattern leads to a balanced state of harmony throughout all levels of your being…emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual. Esoteric Acupuncture is best known for being able to balance and fine-tune the whole body on an energetic level and especially benefits individuals interested in exploring and deepening their spiritual growth.
We also use other therapeutic treatment modalities such as cupping, Chinese herbs, moxibustion, gua sha, tui na massage, and auricular (ear) acupuncture.

Microneedling using the AcuLift Micropen is a minimally invasive aesthetics treatment that harnesses your skin’s innate healing powers to improve its health and appearance. The AcuLift Micropen system promotes the natural production of collagen and elastin which are responsible for skin structure and elasticity. As we age, these fibers break down and can cause wrinkles.
The AcuLift Micropen system uses extremely fine, sterile needles to penetrate the skin just enough to stimulate collagen and elastin production without permanent injury to the skin. With minimal pain and downtime, a series of 4-6 monthly treatments can produce results that last for five years. Results are sometimes apparent after one treatment and will continue to progress for several months after your last treatments.
Microneedling is an alternative to injections and surgery to address skin conditions such as:
Crows feet and lip wrinkles
Dark Spots- Melasma
Cost of one full face treatment is $325 per session with packages of 4 for $1200. Chest & neck treatments can be added for an additional $100 per session. All sessions include acupuncture, infrared light therapy, and a complimentary set of 3 face serums to enhance the benefits of your microneedling treatment.
