The Octagon Community Acupuncture Clinic is designed to offer affordable health care to everyone in the community. We have a staff of licensed acupuncturists that are available on an appointment or drop-in basis. You get first class care when you need it.
We treat our patients in comfortable recliners in a quiet and relaxing group setting. keeping our costs low, and our treatments affordable. This allows us to offer you the chance to experience the power of acupuncture as it has been used in China for centuries. We primarily use points on the extremities, so there is no need to undress. The group setting in itself is a powerful tool to facilitate healing!
High Quality Chinese Herbal Medicine is also available. Herbs are a great complement to acupuncture, extending the benefits of a treatment greatly. An herbal diagnosis (includes medicine) runs only $10-$15.
Therapeutic massage (Tui Na) sessions are available most shifts, costing $1 per minute at our North Oakland location, and $15-$30 for 20 minutes at our Fruitvale location.
We also offer a variety of movement classes, including Qi Gong and Yoga. Periodically we host free educational talks on topics such as seasonal health, traditional Chinese nutrition, women’s health and fertility, traditional approaches to weight loss, and sports injury recovery and prevention.
