We are excited to announce a new addition to our practitioner team!

Vig will be working:
  • Sundays 10 am–2 pm starting on 11/22/15**

About Vig in his own words:
I first learned about acupuncture while living at a Zen monastery. I think getting acupuncture is a lot like going on a meditation retreat. When I give an acupuncture treatment, I like to support the deepest layers of body and psyche. I work in Community Acupuncture clinics because I enjoy making health care accessible to everyone.  I also love the sense of community that happens in group acupuncture settings.

 In my free time, I teach meditation at Esalen Institute in Big Sur. I also like to spend a lot of time in the mountains. I strongly believe that Wilderness is the greatest medicine and I would encourage you to lose yourself in Her as much as possible.
