Welcome to North County Acupuncture™ in Oceanside, CA

Searching for an acupuncture clinic in Oceanside or want to learn more about how acupuncture can help you? I’m glad you’re here.

The idea behind acupuncture is simple — it can help improve the flow of blood and energy, or Qi, throughout the body. Removing blockages to Qi, in turn, relieves pain and enhances healing. New research has found that its effectiveness may be due to the fact that it improves the flow of fluid through the connective tissue that lines the inner organs and surrounds the body’s muscles. This can reduce pain and promote healing in other parts of the body. Acupuncture also appears to stimulate the release of opioids, your body’s naturally occurring pain-killing chemicals.

I believe that true and lasting health is achieved when our mind, body and spirit are in balance. This includes being balanced within ourselves as well as in relation to our external environment. As we improve the circulation and flow of blood and Qi through acupuncture, the internal aspects of our being become balanced and healthy. We feel better and function at a higher level.

This in turn improves our relationship with our external environment. Our bodies become more resistant to disease and our ability to handle stress improves. This leads to a greater enjoyment of life and all it has to offer. I invite you to try acupuncture and see how it can change your life.

I’m a USAF veteran whose training in Traditional Chinese Medicine began here in California. I attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, and graduated magna cum laude in 1997. I completed postgraduate studies in acupuncture and Chinese herbology at the China Beijing International Acupuncture Training Center (CBIATC) in Beijing. Today, I hold both California State and U.S. National licenses for Traditional Chinese Medicine and Herbology, and I’m Board-Certified in Acupuncture Orthopedics.

I have been practicing Tai Qi, Qi Gong and yoga for more than 25 years and am a Level 2 Reiki practitioner and a certified Reconnection practitioner. I’ve drawn on my education, knowledge and training as well as my years of treating patients to develop the healing method of the Trine Node Protocol. This new, innovative method is extremely effective both for treating not only the symptoms of pain but helping to treat the root cause, as well.

My goal is to help balance the wellness of your body, mind and spirit, while taking into account your individual goals, challenges and comfort zone. I work with people from all walks of life but as a veteran myself, I specialize in helping veterans.

3 Reasons Acupuncture Supports Couples Facing Infertility

When you consider all the changes in our agricultural practices, the increased number of medications we take, as well as our dependence on plastic and technology that is constantly emitting low-grade radiation, it’s no surprise more couples are having trouble conceiving. Current statistics show one in six couples who are trying to conceive are facing fertility issues. And while many times infertility is thought of as a female issue, it is really a factor for both the man and woman and should therefore be addressed as such.

Five Self Care Tips for Fall

Fall is a favorite season for many people. The weather starts getting a little cooler, things are beginning to slow down and preparations for the holidays are in full swing. For many others, fall is not so festive. Many people get sick during the fall months, allergies can flare up for some, and many don’t like the steady decrease in hours of sunlight, sometimes leading to seasonal depression. Here are some tips on how to get through the season without incident.

Healthy Foods for Fall

The season of fall brings cooler weather and shorter days. As with any season, the world adjusts accordingly. Plants begin to go dormant, animals begin scrounging for food to store to get them through the upcoming winter months and humans start winterizing everything.

As fall descends on the land, it reminds us we need to start cutting back on the numerous cooling foods that are consumed during the summer months. Things like raw foods, salads, juices and fruits should be decreased because they can create too much cold in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine.
