The trained practitioners at Oakland Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine serve their community by blending Eastern and Western healing methods in a variety of services. Acupuncture treatments targeted to the body or face help to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, and fatigue. Needles are inserted into strategic places along the body’s meridians, which liberates chi, the corpus’ healing energy. During massage treatments, a massage therapist analyzes bodies to determine the best course of action, choosing between deep-tissue, Swedish, and shiatsu styles. The clinic also provides seasonal nutrition advice, which shows clients how to fight ailments associated with the weather, such as spring allergies and winter fatigue. Additionally, their motivational interviewing counseling services help clients to set and meet goals in line with the clients' psychological, social, and spiritual needs.
