Thank you for visiting POKE Acupuncture

If you are curious about acupuncture and Eastern medicine but are skeptical, off-put, and/or freaked out

If you are in pain or are unwell but believe you cannot afford other forms of health care or specialized treatment

If you have ever felt that the Western medicine model has disappointed you, condescended to you, or misunderstood you

If you want to reduce stress, increase energy levels, enhance physical and creative performance, prevent illness and pain, and become active in your own wellness

I practice acupuncture with a healthy dose of no-nonsense skepticism—raised in Los Angeles by New York Jews not Buddhist monks—safely and effectively treating everything from pain to digestive deficiencies, stress to sleep conditions, headaches to emotional disorders, using a complete medical system that has succeeded for thousands of years.

POKE accepts health insurance and can inquire with your particular carrier to determine what your plan will cover.

Contact POKE with questions or concerns about how acupuncture and herbal formulas can help you.
