San Francisco Acupuncture

Health of Our Earth = Health of Our Bodies

According to a study, the menace of chronic diseases is rapidly increasing. Thankfully, today, western medicine has answers to many questions that have baffled humanity for years. Many diseases that were considered incurable earlier can be cured or at least managed today. Several drugs and treatments, however, can cause a variety of side effects that can adversely impact the quality of life of the patient.

Many people, for whom conventional treatment had failed, turn to acupuncture, an ancient Chinese practice that involves inserting needles in different strategic points on the patient’s body to unblock the natural flow of energy. From relieving pain associated with various health conditions to improved immune systems, acupuncture has various health benefits.

At Anchor Acupuncture and Wellness, we have spent years studying acupuncture techniques and the human anatomy. We are on a mission to introduce acupuncture in San Francisco. Chinese medicine has taught us to view the human body as a part of nature, which makes perfect sense, as our body is made up of five elements.

Our experience has helped us develop unique perspectives that enable us to see the parallels between everything happening on our Earth and how acupuncture works on the human body.

The world is facing an unprecedented crisis. Pollution levels have already hit an all-time high and are still rising. Studies show that levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are higher than they have ever been at any time in the last 400k years.

Though harmful for us, carbon can be incredibly beneficial for the soil. Imagine if we can somehow find a way to extract carbon from the air that we breathe and divert it into the soil. Because organic carbon is the keystone element controlling soil health, we will be able to create hundreds of tons of healthy soil that can support a variety of flora and fauna. Additionally, when the quality of soil improves, the quality of food on our table will also improve by leaps and bounds.

The point we are trying to make here is that when an excess that is wreaking havoc on some parts of a system is shifted to some other part where it is needed, you get amazing results. Acupuncture works on the same principle. An acupuncturist uses needles as a medium to transfer energy from parts where they are in excess to parts that are starving, restoring the body’s natural balance in the process.

We Are Increasing Our Fee

We haven’t raised our fees since Anchor Acupuncture and Wellness came into existence almost three years ago. Prices have shot up during this period. Our rising expenses have forced us to increase our fee by $10. Beginning March 1, we have started charging $270 for new-patient visits and $140 for follow-up visits.
