Acupunturist working on a patient

At Arise Acupuncture, we provide integrative acupuncture services to create whole body healing. Our acupuncture sessions are unique as we aim to get to the root cause of your condition. We include elements of traditional Chinese medicine as well as lab diagnostics, supplements, and functional nutrition to address and treat a variety of health conditions.

San Diego Integrative Acupuncture

Your personlized path to wellness

An integrative acupuncture session will be conducted by our doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the following steps:


Schedule an Evaluation

During your first acupuncture session, our acupuncturist will conduct an initial consultation to go over your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle habits, digestive issues, and anything else that pertains to your overall health and wellbeing. As Chinese medicine takes a holistic approach to health, it is important for us to gain a better understanding of these areas of your life.


Receive a Personalized Health Plan


Once our acupuncturist has a thorough understanding of your condition, a treatment plan will be curated specifically for you. Several acupuncture sessions will be recommended based off the type of condition you have as well as your symptoms and the severity of your condition.


Acupuncture works cumulatively, so it is not uncommon to come in more frequently in the beginning and then have these sessions taper down after re-evaluation. We encourage questions and are happy to help explain any part of the acupuncture treatment plan we create for you.

Experience Relief

Once significant progress has been made, our acupuncturist will re-evaluate your needs and build a maintenance program with you to help you maintain your progress.
