Acupuncture in San Luis Obispo County

Daniel Kiyama, L.Ac

I am Licensed Acupuncturist in Orange Co and San Luis Obispo Co. In addition to acupuncture, I use moxibustion, cupping, exercise and Sotai.

Sotai is a body balancing and re-alignment technique that uses normal body movement combined with gentle resistance and breathing to reduce pain, improve movement and reduce tension leaving the person with a lighter feeling and a sense of calm. This technique is not soft tissue manipulation as in massage or sudden joint movement like chiropractic. Does not require disrobing or oils on the skin.

Kinesio Taping is used to provide pain relief, support and stability as well as mobility.
