Ancient Medicine for the Modern World

We’re Moving. Stay Tuned!

My last day in Marin will be 8/12/22, but to stay tuned for my new offerings. I look forward to continue to help you with your healthcare goals. Thank you for your patience as I transition to a new location.

Melissa Berg, L.Ac

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practiced for at least three thousand years, and is just as effective and important today. The more life becomes busy and full of mind-based activity, the more run down and stressed we feel. Sometimes, simply feeling healthy and well-rested seems like a luxury, so I invite you to be proactive in your health and well-being. You are worth it!

I take a holistic approach to your well-being, offering natural pain relief and solutions to a range of conditions from acute and chronic pain, PTSD, hormonal imbalances, including PCOS, infertility, endometriosis, fibroids, painful cycles, to symptoms often attributed to menopause. I have a special interest in autoimmune conditions, cancer support, insomnia, migraines, anxiety and depression, and palliative care.

I love treating the whole family, including teens! They love it, and often get quick results. Come in for a chronic or acute condition, or for monthly “tune-ups.” Both Benjamin Franklin and Traditonal Asian Medicine believe, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

 I offer super bills which you can submit to the insurance company for reimbursement, but I don’t directly work with insurance companies.

Acupuncture for Better Circulation

Perhaps the greatest benefit of acupuncture is that this form of medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and has been specifically used to increase circulation for centuries.
