Meet Eyton J. Shalom, M.S., L.Ac
Eyton opened his first San Diego Acupuncture, Dry Needling, Chinese Medicine, and Ayurveda Clinic in Banker’s Hill in 1992. His group practice BodyMind Wellness Center began 2 years later, and was on Palmetto Way in Mission Hills for 13 years. In 2006 he opened his North Park Acupuncture solo practice and that’s where you will find him now, surrounded by a large garden in a quiet home office.
Eyton’s began his study of the healing arts in 1972 when, in response to a severe attack of psoriasis he became a vegetarian, and began an intensive Yoga practice with Yogi S.A.Ramaiah of Kanadukathan, South India. Within 3 months the psoriais was completely cured, which was a very powerful experience of natural healing. Over the next twelve years (including 3 years in India), Eyton devoted his life to the study of Yoga, Meditation, Nutrition, and Ayurveda Medicine. In 1984 Eyton began his study of Chinese Medicine with Dr. Anton Jayasuria, M.D., at Colombo South General Hospital in Colombo, Sri Lanka. After returning to the United States Eyton studied at University of California, San Diego, graduating Magna Cum Laude, in 1988. Read On…

What a wonderful acupuncturist and herbalist. I felt like this was the first time i went to a Dr. who took the time to really see what my problems were.I first went to Eyton after searching under San Diego Acupuncture for someone to help my shoulder pain. Eyton got rid of my pain in a couple of treatments.
I did not even know then he could help me with other things.I have had eczema and acne for the past 5-6 years, and both are about 90% gone. Really happy about that.My mom and I are both regulars now, and even my dad is thinking of going. I will believe that when I see it, but one can always hope!thanks Mr. E.
Eyton is an expert in acupuncture and herbal remedies to support acupuncture and ayurvedic theory and cooking. He has helped me balance my body and when I felt something was off. He is highly skilled. While on unemployment, I once tried a “community acupuncture clinic” that was $25. They might have done a 1/4 or less of what Eyton does. He hits everything. They only did what’s called the distal system: what like arms and legs, anything they can do with your clothes on and rolled up sleeves and pants. Eyton gets many more points head to toe, front and back, with amazing results. I highly recommend him and he is of the highest integrity.
