Editorial Review. Students learning Eastern medicine techniques like acupuncture, herbal therapy and shiatsu massage practice on brave patients at this Potrero Hill clinic.
Great Service, Great Location...I'm Hooked!.
This teaching clinic has programs in acupuncture, herbs and massage. They have a clinic open to the public 6 days a week with evening hours. Treatments last about 1 hour, and you pay what you can (based on your income, or lack thereof). In addition to acupuncture and herbs, they also offer a massage clinic for $5! Can't beat it!
The interns are friendly, and the Licensed Acupuncturists there really seem to know their stuff. My neck and low back pain has dramatically improved in just a few short treatments. The acupuncture is comfortable and actually really makes me relaxed. No pain at all. And some interns will also give you some massage in the process. Nice!They might prescribe your herbs to take, too. I asked for mine in pill form so they are easy to take.
Oh, and they even offer last minute appointments for cheap (I thinik it was 10 or 20 dollars), and also offer discounts to students and Senior citizens for like 20 bucks.
Overall, it was a good experience with acupuncture. Everyone there seemed really nice, and it was good to see a practitioner who realy spent a lot of time with me and listened to what i had to say (unlike my HMO!)
I say, go check them out and you'll be sure to feel better for what ails ya. And free parking in their lot is just icing on the cake!
