Uchida Acupuncture

Traditional Relief for the Modern Masses

Like Yin and Yang

Modern technology and ancient wisdom blend seamlessly at Uchida Acupuncture to offer you the best of both worlds. Western and Eastern approaches to medical care are complementary, not competing. The majority of our patients were referred by their medical doctor who trusts the quality care that Uchida Acupuncture provides.

Uchida Acupuncture specializes in the treatment of work injuries, pain management, chronic musculoskeletal and neurological disorders and stress-related disorders. Even if two people come with the same diagnosis from their doctor, they may have completely different treatment strategies at Uchida Acupuncture because we treat the person, not the disease. 


Uchida Acupuncture is a network provider in most major insurances. If your plan has acupuncture benefits, you will only be responsible for your copay/ co-insurance and annual deductible. We will submit your claims for you. If you are paying out-of-pocket, your first visit will be $90 and then $60 per visit thereafter.

Our office is open Mon, Tue, Thu and Fri from 8:00 am until 5:30 pm. On Saturday, we are open from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm.

His life experience in both the hard sciences and social services instilled a unique perspective on patient care that combines compassionate bedside manner with effective, evidence-based treatment strategies.

He will work to integrate acupuncture therapy with the overall treatment strategy of your physician and has earned the respect of medical doctors and other healthcare professionals on the Westside.
