What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a unique form of therapy that promotes natural healing of the body. The science and art of acupuncture has been practiced effectively for thousands of years, and involves the typically pain-free insertion of tiny needles into specific points along the meridians of the body.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Pain sensitivity does vary from patient to patient, but in general the insertion of a needle is practically unnoticeable. The needles are single-use, individually packaged, and hair-thin — if there is to be a sensation felt, it is one similar to a mosquito bite.
Dr. Jocelyne Eberstein’s Training
Jocelyne Eberstein is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine. After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a B.S. in Nuclear Medicine Technology, Jocelyne began her medical career as a nuclear medicine technologist at the University of San Diego Hospital. The low levels of radiation Jocelyne had been exposed to during this time presented an obstacle when she decided to start a family. It wasn’t until a cardiologist at Cedar Sinai proposed the idea of Traditional Chinese medicine to help with infertility that she began to explore alternative medicine. “It might help and it cant hurt,” were his words, and so began Jocelyne’s journey into natural medicine.
In 1984, she began her studies at the distinguished Emperors College in Santa Monica, California, and after completing the program in Traditional Chinese Medicine with honors, she was soon licensed as an acupuncturist. Deriving enormous motivation from her studies in China, she completed advanced coursework in Herbology, Gynecology, and Chinese Internal Medcine at Jiang’s College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Hangzhou, China. She received her O.M.D. (Doctor of Oriental Medicine) from Samra University in Los Angeles, California, and was one of the first acupuncturists to become board certified in Acupuncture Orthopedics. In addition, Jocelyne is a Qualified Medical Examiner and a Diplomat in Acupuncture and Herbology (National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture).
