Slow Healthcare

Balance is at the core of holistic medicine. In Eastern philosophy, this is expressed through the concept of Yin and Yang. Our modern world tends to be overly Yang in nature: busy, speedy, active and constantly stimulating. In order to address this imbalance, our clinic offers the Yin approach of slowing down and spending time to reconnect with our bodies and souls. We have created a tranquil and comfortable space for you to be. When you come for a visit, it's time to unplug from your day-to-day life, go inside yourself, rest and unburden. Our intention is to address your concerns and leave you feeling more balanced, relaxed refreshed and ready to return to your life.


The Temescal Acupuncture Center is an integrative clinic, offering Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, Classical Homeopathy, Nutritional Therapy and Therapeutic Massage. We have created a neighborhood clinic where you can feel connected to your provider, who will take the time to listen to you. We value the notion of living life closer to home, slowing down, and spending time to reflect and care for ourselves. We invite you to experience and enjoy slow health.


Traditional Chinese Medicine

In ancient China, the doctor's role was to keep people well and prevent them from getting sick. This was done through diet, therapeutic exercise, herbs and acupuncture. Through observation by both patient and doctor, patterns of disharmony were discovered and corrected before they resulted in serious health problems. Acupuncture works through activating and enhancing the body's innate healing capacity. While acupuncture techniques and herbal formulas have been refined over the centuries, the original principles of restoring balance to the body through treatments and positive lifestyle changes have remained the same.



Homeopathy, a system of holistic medicine, aims to stimulate the individual's innate healing processes through the administration of minute dilutions of specific remedies. Derived from the Greek homeo, meaning same, and pathos, meaning suffering, homeopathy essentially treats "like with like". Through a detailed interview process, a remedy is carefully selected to match an individual's unique physical, spiritual, mental and emotional portrait.


Chi Nei Tsang

A Traditional Chinese Medical approach to massage therapy, Chi Nei Tsang focuses on the abdomen­—the very center of the body where vital energy originates. This gentle abdominal massage work can bring about profound healing from within, as it helps to body to detoxify, make structural corrections, balance emotions and bring self-awareness.



Therapeutic massage promotes a sense of deep calm and relaxation. By releasing underlying muscle tension patterns, circulation is enhanced which stimulates tissue repair. Clients often experience reduced pain, enhanced sleep, and improved circulation. Regular massage is a wonderful way to nurture a sense of vitality and rejuvenation.
