Amanda Sapirstein, L.Ac. offers acupuncture, cupping, and Chinese herbal consultation from two treatment spaces, one in Goleta and the other in downtown Santa Barbara.
Bookings are now being accepted for both locations.
*NOTE to patients transitioning their care from the recently closed Downtown Community Acupuncture: You may book a return visit/follow-up appointment, but please fill out the New Patient Intake Form.
Feel free to reach out with any questions!
I am looking very forward to seeing and working with you all.

Tiny filaments, commonly referred to as "acupuncture needles" are inserted a few millimeters into the skin in an effort to mobilize and move our internal energetic resource, or "qi" in a way that recalibrates our body's multiple dynamic processes.
The quick version: improved sleep, reduced pain and stress, an undefinable quantity of benefits; Simply, a more joyous day.
Chinese Herbal Prescriptions are carefully chosen based on your needs and presentation at the time of visit. We mostly stock encapsulated formulas based on patient preference, although may prescribe a custom granular formula if necessary.
We also carry an array of supplements and herbal skin products which can be purchased without an appointment.
Cupping utilizes suction to draw upon muscle, connective tissue, fascia, and stagnant blood, creating space for nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to flow through areas handicapped by heavier and "stuck" deoxygenated blood.
This increasingly popular technique (thank you Michael Phelps) not only boosts the immune system, but breaks up muscle adhesions and improves range of motion, thereby relieving acute and chronic pain.
