Acupuncture, Dry Needling, Ayurveda, and Chinese Herbs in North Park

Welcome to Eyton Shalom’s San Diego Acupuncture, Dry Needling, Ayurveda, and Chinese Herbs Clinic.

You will find us in a peaceful, garden setting in historic North Park, San Diego, California, 92104. Just minutes from Downtown and Balboa Park, and close to the 5, 163, 805, and 8 freeways. 

I specialize in the treatment of Pain with Dry Needling, Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxabustion, Gua Sha, and Electrical Stimulation.  I have helped everyone from professional Baseball players and ballet dancers to committed triathaletes to teenage Club soccer and Water polo experts to older Interval training afficianados and marathoners to weekend warriors and people with chronic pain who are not athletic. 

I am an expert in the treatment of Internal Medicine, from Skin and Digestive Problems to Women’s Health issues, with various combinations of Classical Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, and Ayurvedic Medicine.

Ayurvedic Medicine includes the use of Ayurvedic herbs, the evaluation of your dosha imbalances, and the creation of lifestyle and diet plans to correct the elevations. 

I offer state of the art healing techniques in a warm, caring environment. What makes a good doctor? Someone with a good head, good hands, and a good heart. Since graduating from Chinese Medicine school in 1992, that has been my aspiration. The philosophy of Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine  is to treat the whole person. Treating from the inside out means being a good detective. Our job together is to find the causes of your imbalance, which is the best way to find the cure.

My treatment strategies include Classical Chinese and Japanese style Acupuncture, Moxabustion, Cupping, Gua Sha, Dry Needling, Chinese Herbal Medicine, and Ayurvedia. I have been practicing Kriya Yoga and Meditation since 1972, and often teach Mindfulness Meditation to my patients.

Serving greater San Diego, including North Park, South Park, Hillcrest, Downtown, El Cajon, La Mesa, Chula Vista, and North County.
