Welcome to Oakland Acupuncture Project!

The purpose of Oakland Acupuncture Project is to make Chinese Medicine accessible by providing affordable community-centered health care. All acupuncture treatments are individualized to meet your needs, and are performed in a quiet community space.

We charge on a sliding scale: $15-35

You decide what you can afford. We will NEVER make you prove your income level. We want you to come often enough to really get better, and the sliding scale is our way of helping you make that commitment. There is an additional $15 paperwork fee for your first appointment. Please arrive approximately 10 minutes early for your initial visit to complete the new patient forms. Cash or check only.

Welcome Ray, Our New Substitute Acupuncturist

head shot ray.3The first time I was exposed to acupuncture was while working in administration at a small community health clinic in San Francisco. I remember peeking my head into the community clinic and seeing a room full of people, peacefully resting with tiny needles in their ears, hands and feet. Acupuncture seemed like magic to me at the time. After years of study and practice, Iʼm still amazed by the magic of acupuncture, and Iʼm thrilled to be sharing it at Oakland Acupuncture Project. Public health and social justice are passions of mine, and I see my practice of acupuncture through a socio-political lens: helping individuals feel better is a small but important piece of the larger work of collective healing. Because I believe we are all the experts of our own experience, I approach my work from a harm reductionist, body-
positive and gender-inclusive place. These days, when Iʼm not giving acupuncture treatments, Iʼm probably surfing!
