What We Do
Whether you're dealing with chronic health concerns like pain, sleep issues, anxiety or depression, recovering from an injury, or looking for help managing addiction or stress, we are here to offer you acupuncture that is rooted deeply in the traditions of Chinese Medicine, and mindful of where you are at now.
We provide private treatments as well as group sessions.
Private treatments are done at the clinic. Group sessions are provided as a mobile service, meaning that we come to you! These can be done in a community style or purely as acudetox, both of which are done in a space provided by you. Whether for you and your friends, your office and co-workers, or for your organization and drop-in clients, group treatments need only a room and some chairs or pillows to be successful!
What We Care About
Earthsea acupuncture is focused on building and contributing to community by providing acupuncture and Chinese Medicine healing that is safe, accessible, and affordable. We are committed to a queer and trans positive, anti-oppressive framework, and are passionate about a trauma-informed approach to healing. We want to accommodate you, and are always open to talking about where you are at!
Who Are We?

I am happy to talk to you about where you are at, where you are coming from, and how and where you want your health and wellness to progress.
