Acupuncture in Solana Beach and Vista, CA

Ananda Stevenson, MS, L.Ac.


The goal with Acupuncture and using functional medicine (herbs, and nutritional supplements) is to optimize your health and wellness by creating harmony with your body, mind, and spirit. We believe that while ailments have a localised discomfort, they often have underlying root causes. These root origins are imbalances, which, over time, manifest in varying symptomatic problems and patterns throughout the body. When left untreated, this begins the layering or progressions of disease.

We treat both the root and branch (symptoms) causes using acupuncture, nutritional supportive care, high quality herbal formulas, and lab work. We use only the best: Pharmasan Labs, Metagenics, Evergreen, Golden Flower, and neuroscience. Our practice is focused on womens health, infertility, weight loss, chronic pain, sports medicine, and cosmetic acupuncture. Our clinic has over 25 years of experience in North county giving only the best, and thousands of years of history in helping to balance body, mind, and spirit in harmony with acupuncture.
