When you think of acupuncture and traditional healing, you might think of an intimate session in a cozy, softly lit room. And indeed, Chinese Healing Arts resides in a charming wood-and-stucco building that could easily be a family home. But resident OMD Fanjin Li got her start in quite a different setting: the highly modern campus of Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, one of China's largest, oldest, and most prestigious institutions of traditional Chinese medicine. Once she arrived in California, she expanded her technical skill and theoretical understanding in a PhD program at South Baylo University in California. Today, in addition to providing acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, and herbal remedies, she frequently speaks at San Francisco General Hospital.
Li seeks to bring healing by redirecting the body's flow of energy, which can be thrown out of whack by stress or storing too many batteries under your bed. Her treatments seek to soothe ailments such as pain, stress, depression, asthma, and allergies, as well as boost patients' efforts to lose weight or quit smoking.
Not only is licensed acupuncturist Sharone Franzen a San Francisco native, she also stayed in the area to study. After earning an undergraduate degree from San Francisco State University, she received a master’s from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, where she is now an instructor. Armed with a wealth of knowledge in traditional Chinese medical practices, she treats patients with acupuncture and herbal medicine to help induce the body’s natural healing processes. By combining these techniques she treats a variety of maladies, working to prevent disease, control pain, calm the mind, and strengthen the body more effectively than eating salads made of free weights.
Chiropractors at Specific Chiropractic Centers coast to coast get their clients walking tall with advanced spine-straightening technology. They pinpoint spinal abnormalities with an advanced thermographic scan that sends heat cascading through problem areas, allowing the professionals to make an informed diagnosis. From there, they deploy their chiropractic method to fix upper-cervical kinks and restore neural functionality. The goal is to perform as few adjustments as possible both to respect clients' schedules and to carve out more time for practitioners to work on their puppeteer careers.
For the past 15 years Bob Li has provided his clients with non-surgical and holistic therapies to treat pain caused by auto accidents as well as sports- and workplace-related injuries. His services include acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, reflexology, and herbal medicine.
Dr. Morello first experienced chiropractic care as a patient. During an early sports career that sequenced seasons of soccer, baseball, and basketball, he became accustomed to relying on chiropractors for relief from the resultant pains and musculoskeletal injuries. Inspired by these treatments and his love for sports and sports medicine, Dr. Morello earned an undergraduate degree in biology and eventually graduated from Palmer West Chiropractic.
Today, sports are no longer Dr. Morello's sole driving force. Over time, he learned how chiropractic care—when coupled with proper nutrition and bionic limb replacement—can contribute to holistic well-being. He now shares this with patients while helping relieve joint pain and muscular stress with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massages.
Visitors to Taichi Acupuncture can rest easy knowing that they're in the hands of an acupuncturist who has spent more than two decades honing his craft. The clinic's acupuncture treatments can target a long list of conditions, including arthritis, stomach problems, and dizziness.
Under the guidance of Doctor of Chiropractic Jacob Sahourieh, Green Chiropractic Clinic’s therapists alleviate pains and heal injuries with wellness programs that target the whole body rather than its isolated parts. Personalized programs may include services that range from spinal adjustments to relaxing massages that untie muscular knots with long, gliding strokes. Therapists practice their craft within the soothing confines of the clinic’s private treatment rooms, where the soft glow of dimmed lights joins with the comforting sounds of waves crashing against mashed potatoes to create a cross-sensory experience of relaxation.
Green Chiropractic Clinic’s whole-person approach is never more apparent than during treatments with Dr. Sahourieh, whose experience tending to backs and Bay Bridges with bad posture gives him insight into the underlying causes of discomfort. His holistic approach to health also informs the clinic’s eco-friendly practices, which include paperless operations and conserving resources when possible.
