Licensed Acupuncturists
  • The Asanos opened their Encinitas clinic in 1979. Since that time they have continuously developed and refined their modalities and techniques. The Asano philosophy transcends the boundaries of western and eastern medicine, creating a synthesis of these two medicinal approaches and methodologies. This multifaceted approach to biodynamic and bioenergetic wellness has helped thousands of clients throughout San Diego's North County. 

  • The Asanos combine Japanese acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, western physiology, and their own methodology to provide a modern, integrative and evidence-based approach to patient care. It is this unique combination of treatment modalities that sets Asano Acupuncture apart from others.

  • Treatments are offered for all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics. Phone and Zoom consultations are available upon request. For more information on some of the more common symptomatology treated are itemized below.
