WELCOME!

If you're looking for acupuncture covered by your insurance plan or shorter appointments at a reduced cost, Amanda offers acupuncture at four Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinic locations: Goleta, Isla Vista, Eastside, and Bridge. SBNC accepts CenCal, Medicare, and select Anthem & Blue Shield insurance plans.

I am looking very forward to seeing and working with you as capacity allows.

Our 
Story

Hidden Meridian is founded on the principle of holistic health through a combination of tried and true ancient methods alongside recent advances in wellness tools and technology. Our mission is to address obstacles to health effectively, compassionately, and naturally in the process of guiding our patients, friends, and community members to a state of optimal wellbeing.

Offerings

Choose just one, or mix & match

Acupuncture

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.

Herbs

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

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.
