Our Story

Daniel headshot

Daniel Martin, Licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist
For many health issues, wellness starts with making good choices. That’s easily said, but not easy to do. After many years, I continue to be challenged.

For a long time I suffered chronic digestive problems, allergies, neck and shoulder pain. All that led me to eventually try acupuncture.

At the acupuncturist’s office, I realized I had choices about taking care of myself. I could relate to the world in a different way. Acupuncture led me to meditation rather than medication.

In 2010 I received a Masters of Science from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. Since then I have specialized in treating chronic digestive problems, allergies, migraines, anxiety, and chronic pain. I practice a gentle Japanese style of acupuncture that engages patients in the power of their own healing process.

I live in Marin County with my wife Judith, who is also an acupuncturist, along with cats and chickens. I love to grow vegetables and engage with nature in any way I can.

Gentle, Painless Acupuncture
Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s internal healing process.

Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

Functional Nutritional Therapy
You’ll receive a CLEAR, easy-to-follow nutritional plan. When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need they naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because your body’s key systems are optimized.

Herbal Medicine
Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat chronic and non-life threatening conditions.

Relaxation and Stress-Reduction
When your nervous system is calm, your digestive system, hormonal system, immune system, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means less inflammation and better circulation.

Our Process Is Simple


Free Initial Consultation
At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your concerns including current symptoms, medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly your goals. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a high probability of success for you – before we move forward to the next step.


Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan
Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of action. Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to- follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root cause of your concerns and address your most pressing symptoms.


Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution
You’ll return for regular visits to ensure supporting your body, as it begins to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results. You’ll receive acupuncture and any other appropriate treatment at each visit to ensure that your progress is cumulative and your concerns are resolved as soon as possible.

Transitional Care As Things Stabilize
Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments. We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns. Of course, many of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones
We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work. So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.

Why Our Treatment Is So Popular

More Powerful than you think
Your body is capable of healing ANY problem, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.

Feel better immediately
People often feel a positive shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.

We treat you, not your diagnosis.
Results vary, of course, but over 75% of our patients report improvement in symptoms after just a few sessions and many are able to reduce their medication use (under supervision by the prescribing physician) as their bodies begin to function at a higher level. However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.

Painless procedures
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, and they cause no pain because they are razor sharp.

Results that stick
The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way. Our goal is to get you to the point where you don’t need us!

Minimal disruption to your schedule
Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits. We can discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.

No horrible, super-restrictive detox or elimination diets!
Our program is all about setting you up to succeed. We find the 2 or 3 “key leverage points” in your diet and work on those. No impossible to follow meal plans or detoxes here.

Or, call us at 415.377.0854​. We’ll be happy to answer any of your questions.
