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.

If you’re seeking a top acupuncture clinic in Oceanside, CA, you want to know more about the person who will be treating you.

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.

I am currently accepting new patients and look forward to working with you. If you are looking for an acupuncture specialist, you can reach our acupuncture clinic in Oceanside, CA, at (760) 434-3410 to set up an appointment or ask any questions you may have about how acupuncture can help you.

Is Acupuncture Safe Post-Covid? 4 Things Your Acupuncturist Wants You to Know Before You Book Your Appointment

To say that 2020 was a stressful year is putting it mildly. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, many people put checkups and other medical procedures on hold, including acupuncture treatments. If you are more than ready to get back to your treatments, here are four things your acupuncturist wants you to know about their safety procedures in this new normal. And if this does not answer all your questions, please feel free to ask. Your acupuncturist wants you to feel safe and secure as you return for your first appointment. 

Acupuncture for Healthy Weight Loss

In the United States, an estimated 300,000 people a year die from obesity. 

In several studies over the last five years, researchers have shown patients who receive regular acupuncture treatments see faster weight loss results than those who do not. In each case, the acupuncture treatments were combined with dietary and lifestyle changes also aimed at weight loss, but the patients who got acupuncture saw better results than those who focused on dietary and lifestyle changes alone.

Acupuncture for Inflammation

For many of the afflictions acupuncture can treat – allergies, back pain, headaches, the list goes on – reducing inflammation in the body is a primary reason acupuncture is successful. For decades now, doctors and medical researchers have been trying to learn what the biological mechanism is that allows acupuncture to reduce inflammation in the body.
