We are literally moving up and will be occupying the top floor of a Victorian built in 1900. We are working hard to ensure that the relaxed oasis of calm we created at our current location will come with us to the new location.
The new location is still in the 94115 zip code and is in the vibrant Japan-Town / Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood. Our new neighbors include the Kabuki Spa and Cinemas, the Women's Health Clinic, and restaurants galore. Getting there will be a breeze with numerous Muni lines including the 22 Fillmore, 1 California, 2 Clement and 38 Geary all within 1-2 blocks. The new space also has much better parking facilities with metered parking and the parking garage at the cinemas.
Since we opened for business in April 2010, your loyal support has meant so much to us. We are excited to be moving to a space where we will be able to increase our offerings, with more private room options and complementary therapies being housed under one roof. Taking your feedback on board we have realized that the cramped community room and limited parking were unacceptable.
As of March 2nd 2018, we will not be operating in the McAllister Street location.
Our phone number, website and email will not change.
Our number is still 415-409-1506, and our contact email address is still email@example.com.
We look forward to treating you at our new location! We are very excited to share the next chapter of our journey with you, our incredible community.
If you have any questions about the new location or our services, please email me and I’ll be happy to help.
The last five years of my life have been filled with a deep source of connection, sharing of laughter and tears, kindness and joy. This source has been cultivated here at Tiny Needles by each and every person who has walked through our doors and I want to thank you all for this.
As some of you know, I live in Oakland and the commute to SF is becoming increasingly taxing to my family's physical and spiritual energy. It has also been a goal of mine to open a community clinic in Oakland and that dream is finally becoming a reality. Look for Tune Up Community Acupuncture coming soon!
So it is with a heavy heart full of love that I embrace you all with a warm hug and say farewell to this beautiful community.
I want to thank you all for embracing me and allowing me into your healing space. It has been an honor working with you.
All my best,
Eun's last shift at Tiny Needles will be on Friday March 2, 2018.
Please join with us in wishing her all the very best. She will be sorely missed!

There are many reasons people come to see us here at Tiny Needles, but among the top are for the management of stress (in its various manifestations) as well as for the management of back pain, whether it be upper, mid, low or whole back pain.
This is one of my absolute favorite comfort soups and I thought I would share it after Tanja's last blog post on Digestion in TCM. Parsnip, Cabbage, Onion and Carrots are all vegetables that give our bodies the sweet it craves. They soothe the internal organs and energize the mind. Add sweet potato to the other vegetables and you get an energetically grounding mix that counteracts the spaciness that can sometime occur after eating sweet things. Eating this sweet soup can help minimize your cravings for other, less healthy, sweets. It balances your blood sugar levels and helps break down animal products.
Oh, and it's bloody delicious!
In Chinese Medicine the digestive system belongs to the Spleen organ system (including both the Stomach and Pancreas) and each organ system within Chinese Medicine contains a collection of symptoms that make up a pattern that we look for when a patient comes to see us.
Underneath the umbrella of a Spleen organ system in disharmony are probably some obvious or intuitive symptoms such as upset stomach, bloating, changes with bowel movements, nausea, but as Chinese Medicine also includes things of a mental and spiritual nature, symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, a tendency to ruminate and worry are also relevant. Other things we might see if there is an issue with the Spleen system is dampness in the body which can manifest as edema, weight gain or mucus production.
