We are committed to serving you with effective, high-quality, and empowering healthcare so that you can live to your full human potential. We provide an integrative approach to your health care needs by utilizing the principles of preventative and primary Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Our "tool kit" of healthcare services includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, medical massage, dietary therapy, healthy lifestyle counseling, medical qigong therapy as well as seasonal wellness and qigong classes. We provide primary care office visits, a full herbal medicine pharmacy, nutritional supplements, and different styles of gentle acupuncture to meet the needs of our patients.

We have several factors that set us apart from other acupuncturists in Marin: our decade of the study and practice of Chinese medicine, our advanced training in pain management and reproductive health, our beautiful, authentic, professional clinic that we share with esteemed clinicians, our use of technology to minimize human errors (electronic medical records and online scheduling), excellent referral relationships with Western and Complementary medical providers, our warm and comforting bedside manner, our painless techniques, our successful clinical results, and personal integrity (we practice what we preach!). We regularly attend continuing education courses to further our training and knowledge. We also conduct research with the Pine St. Clinic to advance our modern understanding of Chinese medicine.

It is a great honor to partner with our patients to design creative solutions to their health problems. Welcome to Marin Acupuncture Clinic!
