Cupertino-Center Acupuncture effectively treats many different kinds of medical problems.  Some of the most common conditions that we treat are those brought on by working in front of a computer all day in a high stress environment, as many people in Silicon Valley need to do.  These conditions include low back pain, neck pain. shoulder and arm problems (especially the side used to control the computer mouse,) as well as headaches and insomnia.

We also see many female patients to treat reproductive-related problems, such as menstrual issues, pain and discomfort, or fertility issues.  Our therapeutic, rejuvenating facials are also very popular.

Many of our patients do not want to be treated using acupuncture needles.  We understand that and are able to treat them using non-needle acupressure.

Besides acupuncture and acupressure, our types of treatment include cupping, infrared lamps, herbal hot packs, moxa, medical massage and herbal medicines from our extensive herbal pharmacy.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that all illnesses and many other medical conditions are the result of imbalances of the patient's system, imbalances that may have been present for years.  TCM is a gentle form of medicine that treats many current or chronic conditions by bringing your system back into balance by using acupuncture techniques and herbal medicine, enabling your own body to defend itself effectively.  It is also excellent for treating many types of pain and nausea.  As a result of this approach to medicine, TCM has been used for centuries in China, and is still used today, to treat nearly all diseases and other medical conditions, some of which are listed below.
