The Temescal Acupuncture Center
The center was founded in 2003 in the North Oakland neighborhood of Temescal. Temescal is centrally located and adjacent to Rockridge, Piedmont, and downtown Oakland. It is home to a diverse, eclectic community. Our clinic has several licensed acupuncturists, massage therapists, and a nutritionist. We also have a fully stocked herbal pharmacy.
Historically a temescal was a Native American sweat lodge used for healing. Though we keep the rooms at a comfortable 71 degrees, we are continuing in our predecessors' healing tradition.
