The Revida Difference

Our mastery of Chinese Medicine’s four pillars empowers us to design the most effective plan for you.

Your health care plan should be customized.

Acupuncture is just one of the effective treatments we might use.

Each pillar has its own techniques and unique strengths. We’ll customize your health plan, drawing upon all of the pillars of Classical Chinese Medicine with one goal in mind: providing you with the most effective treatment options available.

  • Acupuncture and Moxibustion
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Qigong (exercise therapy)
  • Tui Na (massage therapy)
Pillar 1
Acupuncture and Moxibustion
(including cupping and gua sha)

The Chinese character we call “acupuncture” actually translates to “acupuncture and moxibustion.”

The hallmarks of our classical acupuncture style produce excellent results with only a few needles. This includes expert diagnosis, successful clinical experience, and mastery of Chinese medical theory.

Moxa refers to gently warming the body with a Chinese herb near the skin. This produces a soothing sensation as the essential oils penetrate the body. Moxa is especially helpful for eliminating pain, strengthening the immune system, fighting and preventing colds, supporting pregnancy, boosting fertility, improving mood, and even turning a breech baby.

Cupping and gua sha are two other non-invasive modalities. These techniques don’t just feel good. We use them to reduce pain, relax the body, calm the mind and balance emotions, treat colds and flu, and more.

Pillar 2
Herbal Medicine
(including nutrition)

One of the most appealing benefits of herbs is they are virtually free of harmful side effects when properly prescribed by an expert. Another benefit is the efficacy.

Our acupuncturists’ clinical training and experience includes successful use of herbs to help patients recover from colds and flu, reduce and eliminate severe pain and neuropathy, treat IBS and digestive disorders, improve anxiety, treat endometriosis, restore diminishing vision, reduce multiple sclerosis symptoms, manage side effects of cancer and AIDS medications, eliminate allergies, improve appetite, treat PMS symptoms, and more.

Pillar 3
(physical therapy)

Medical Qigong is the wonderful self-healing branch of Chinese medicine. It involves gentle movements, breathing techniques, and visualizations in order to gain strength and energy to preserve or restore health. Studies have linked qigong practice to positive effects on many conditions including stress and mood, chronic pain, immune function, bone density, asthma, and stroke risk.

Andrew is a certified qigong prescription teacher with broad medical qigong experience that includes preventative care, treating severe pain, and treating cancer patients in a hospital setting.

Pillar 4
Tui Na
(therapeutic massage)

Tui Na is the oldest known form of physical therapy. While it feels like a massage, Tui Na is different because Chinese medical theory is the basis for treatment. As a result, Tui Na’s usefulness includes the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, sprains and strains, TMJ, back pain, poor circulation, bronchitis, asthma, digestive and gastric disorders, and many pediatric disorders.

In addition to there acupuncture degrees, Andrew is a licensed Tui Na Massage Therapist and Maya is a licensed Shiatsu and Maya Abdominal Massage Therapist. Andrew has successful clinical experience treating student athletes in the San Francisco State University Athletic Department and patients at the ACTCM Potrero Hill Tui Na Clinic.
