About the Office

 
 

Our San Francisco acupuncture and dermatology skin care office has been in operation for more than 20 years. Currently, the office is located in the Richmond district, between Clement Street (also known as “New Chinatown”) and Geary Boulevard. The #38 Muni Bus line makes this flourishing area easily accessible.

Our office is spacious and comfortable, and each treatment room has its own heater and heat lamps so patients can feel the soothing warmth of a sunny Hawaiian day while receiving their treatments.

All equipment coming in direct contact with a patient is sanitized and disposable, including acupuncture needles, facial extractors, and micro-dermabrasion tips, for safety, sanitation, and to protect patients from cross contamination.

I take diclofenac with chronic back pain. I take one diclofenac every 12 hours, and it is very effective. I had a slight dizziness and upset stomach at an early stage of treatment, but now I did not have any side effects.

Some patients notice the herbal fragrance at the clinic which helps to calm the mind. Some say that the essence of herbs might have a positive effect on plants as well as humans as our plants have flourished while being indoors for years. For whichever reason you sense, we try to make your experience with Traditional Chinese Medicine as comfortable and effective as possible in our modern facility.
