16th Street Acupuncture supports the LGBTQ community. Even though our society has come a long way, there is still discrimination and stigma. Many individuals in this community do not have access to good healthcare, have a hard time finding work, and can face high rates of violence victimization. At our clinic we welcome and support all types of family structures and diversity.

Also, acupuncture is a great gift for a loved one or family member. We love taking care of people!

Health & Wellness For Families


Acupuncture can treat seasonal or year-round allergies. By building the immune system, transforming phlegm, opening the sinuses, and regulating organ function, acupuncture and herbal medicine can be very helpful for congestion, shortness of breath, allergic asthma, watery eyes, stuffy nose, malaise and cough.


16th St Acupuncture has recently added beauty treatments that incorporate facial cupping with acupuncture to stimulate collagen and blood flow to the face. Facial cupping reduces fine lines and wrinkles and give the face a lift and glow.

Digestive Issues

Acupuncture is extremely helpful in treating all types of digestive issues including SIBO, colitis, constipation, loose stools, diarrhea, and IBS. Moxibustion can be used to help strengthen the stomach, spleen, and intestines.

Gua Sha Facial Rejuvenation

Gua (to scrape) Sha (stagnated blood) has been around for thousands of years. In Chinese villages, people would use a coin to scrape the backs of children or anyone who was developing a cold or chest congestion to release the pathogen.

Men’s Health

Acupuncture has been shown to help with sexual function and vitality in men. Regular acupuncture treatments not only help increase desire and sexual stamina, they can also increase sperm quality, quantity, and motility and reduce structural defects.


We are child and baby friendly at 16th St Acupuncture! There are many conditions children can experience such as digestive upset and sinus issues that can be treated safely and effectively with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. If children are nervous about needles we can use other techniques such as moxibustion and pediatric massage to also achieve great results.

Pregnancy and Fertility

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can aide with every aspect of pregnancy, from conception to post partum. Women can benefit from weekly treatments when they are pregnant for strengthening immunity for herself and the baby.

The Conundrum of the Cabana Crowd: Sunscreen – Store Bought vs Homemade

I love the sun. I feel better when it’s warm and the sun is beating down on me – I’m like my father who says he’s “solar powered”. I’ve been bad over the years about putting on sunscreen. I have sun damage on my face, hyper pigmentation and I get annual scoldings from my dermatologist. Even though I have started to be better about applying, I still feel as though I want the direct rays for the Vitamin D and also the chemicals listed on the bottles are horrifying.

Women’s Health

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine has been used for centuries to balance women’s hormones, monthly cycle, and aide in the ability to conceive. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can work either alongside modern Western medicine or alone to regulate women’s health issues.
