Welcome

Experience inner peace and healing through acupuncture at Pacific Beach Acupuncture


Have you ever wondered if there’s a more natural approach to healing conditions instead of masking them?

Have you felt frustrated about the way your health has been handled?

Do you wish to feel heard and have someone ‘connect the dots’ from a holistic perspective?

Are you ready to have less pain, less stress and more energy?

 

My name is Andreia, and I am here to tell you we can do all of this together with Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

 

My goal is to help each and every patient realize true healing comes from withing.

I will empower you to take charge of your health, to make good health decisions and experience the changes you are looking for – whether that means less pain, more energy, fertility support, better sleep or management of chronic ailments.

What to expect at your first acupuncture session:

Your initial acupuncture visit is very important: it includes the consultation, acupuncture treatment and/or moxa, cupping and gua sha – depending on your specific needs.

I will take a detailed health history , and conduct an examination according to Chinese Medicine diagnostics, which includes tongue, pulse and facial diagnosis. These methods of examination allow me to design a treatment plan that is specific to you.

Your treatment plan will describe the imbalance I will be working with, a general time line for treatment and what kinds of treatment will be involved. (ie acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, moxa, gua sha)
.  You will receive an acupuncture treatment and may be prescribed an herbal formula, as well as diet and lifestyle suggestions.

Chinese Medicine requires your active participation to get the most out of your acupuncture session. You should be ready to stick to the plan and realize that there’s no “magical pill” in the holistic treatment of any condition.
