Acupuncture is the healing art involving the stimulation of specific points in the body with the use of needles. Originally practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the needles create the effect of normalizing physiologic functions of the body. This treatment will modify the perception of pain, and can be administered for countless diseases or dysfunctions of the body. Many modern Western medical diseases can be addressed with acupuncture including those in the category of gynecological, endocrine and metabolic, gastrointestinal, hepatic and biliary, musculoskeletal, pulmonary, ear, nose and throat, ophthalmic, dental and oral, dermatological, hematologic, immunologic and allergic, infectious, neurological, cardiovascular, pediatric and genitourinary. This service is done in the comfort of your residence or location of preference for ultimate relaxation.
Cosmetic acupuncture is an extension of traditional acupuncture that can help your skin appear younger, smoother, and healthier. As it improves your skin’s underlying health, cosmetic acupuncture naturally decreases the signs of aging. The highly respected professionals at California Mobile Acupuncture use their skill and expertise to combine acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine, and other treatment protocols to enhance the results of cosmetic acupuncture. Cosmetic acupuncture works by triggering your body’s natural tissue repair system, prompting it to increase the production of substances such as collagen and elastin to maintain your skin’s health, improve elasticity, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Acupuncture also stimulates your lymphatic and circulatory systems, which deliver nutrients and oxygen that nourish your skin from the inside out. This helps even out your complexion and restores a youthful glow. Cosmetic acupuncture is beneficial for both men and women who would like to: Minimize fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and near the mouth, firm and tighten sagging skin on the cheeks, chin, and neck, improve skin complexion and brightness, and reduce under eye bags and puffiness Cosmetic acupuncture is a nonsurgical, painless therapy that leaves you with a healthy, natural look and requires no post treatment recovery time. For optimal results, the experts at California Mobile Acupuncture typically recommend an average of 10-12 sessions. Depending on your skin’s response, your treatment plan may require fewer or more sessions. Before scheduling your therapy, your acupuncturist discusses the treatment in detail and provides guidelines for what you can expect during and after each session.
Our highly trained and skilled massage therapist fully customizes each massage to the individual. Relax as your tension, knots and stress melt away. Lymphatic drainage included. In addition, we offer Tui Na, a deep tissue massage that is used alongside acupuncture in specific areas as needed.
Providing the body with proper nutrition is one of the most important factors in living a healthy life. Most food in the United States is not what it was 100 years ago, or even 50 years ago. Our soils have been depleted, our oceans polluted, and organisms greatly modified. Along with this, the use of toxic pesticides is at an all-time high. Within this unavoidable environment that we are exposed to, we have to make decisions based on what is available to consume, keeping in mind nutrient density versus toxicity and acidity. With traditional schools of thought in mind, a customized balanced menu is created for each person based on what is found using various diagnostic tools. The goal of such nutritional balancing is to give the body the best chance of functioning properly in order to achieve and maintain overall health.

Hair Mineral Analysis
Hair Mineral Analysis is a soft tissue mineral biopsy that uses hair as the sampling tissue. One strand of hair will be gathered and sent to the lab to be thoroughly analyzed. This test gives us data to lead in the direction of proper re-mineralization, custom to your body. The test measures levels of 20 or so minerals in the hair, with an accuracy of about 3%. Essential minerals are necessary for good health and cannot be synthesized in the body, therefore, minerals must be obtained through your diet. If these key nutrients are not obtained through diet your body will begin to degenerate. Depending on your results, we will recommend the proper supplements and diet to improve your overall health.
Herbology & Essential Oils
Essential oils support healing and relaxation and with California Mobile Acupuncture, high-quality essential oils are blended specific to a person’s needs. Herbs can be prescribed, although nutrition and supplementation are typically addressed first. Ask about our in-home oil consultation.
Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. With suction and negative pressure, cupping encourages local circulation. This treatment helps to loosen muscles and brings the nervous system toward homeostasis, making it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure, muscular pain and stiffness, as well as anxiety, fatigue, rheumatism, and even cellulite. Respiratory conditions from the common cold to chronic illness such as asthma, are the most commonly treated conditions with cupping.
Cupping is thought to affect tissues up to four inches below the skin and is virtually painless. The treatment will feel more like a massage but with an inch deeper effect. With the use of cupping, toxins can be cleared from the body while veins and arteries can be refreshed to improve blood flow. The cups are placed along the meridians and can remain locally at the problem area or moved along the back with massage oils in certain cases.
