Laurel Acupuncture, Clinic of Functional Medicine



Offering Acupuncture and Functional Medicine since 2003 

Located in the Bankers Hill neighborhood, near downtown San Diego

At Laurel Acupuncture, I combine Traditional Chinese Medicine with Functional Medicine. This approach offers patients the best possible outcome for continued health and wellness.

When we're sick or in pain, it's a sign that our health is out of balance. Functional Medicine uses cutting-edge evidence-based blood and hormone testing to approach the body as a whole, working to restore the balance that lets our systems work properly.

I specialize in chronic conditions which are otherwise difficult to treat such as:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Chronic conditions (menopause, infertility, menstrual irregularity)
  • Autoimmune disorders (Hashimoto's, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, etc)
  • Digestive problems (Leaky Gut Syndrome, Celiac Disease, Colitis, food and gluten sensitivity)
  • Migraines

Most insurance plans are accepted for Acupuncture. Please use the contact form to ask about your policy.

I have written many educational articles on my blog page relating to Acupuncture and Functional Medicine.  Here are a few of my latest.  I hope you find them helpful!  Please contact me with any questions you may have.
