Our Clinics

The ACTCM Clinics are community-oriented teaching clinics that have been treating patients for over 40 years. Our ACTCM clinical interns are in the final phase of a rigorous four-year program taught by experts in Traditional Chinese Medicine healing techniques. Interns treat patients under the direct supervision of clinical faculty who are California-licensed acupuncturists. They are extensively trained practitioners who have been selected for their expertise, areas of specialty, experience working in holistic medicine, and thorough knowledge of today’s health conditions. Our teaching acupuncture clinic has been recognized for excellence in patient care and named “Best of the Bay” in service. We welcome those in need of holistic healthcare regardless of ethnicity, gender identification, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, and citizenship status. 

Services we offer: Acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, herbal prescriptions, telehealth.
