Out of concern for the well-being of the CIIS and broader communities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ear Acupuncture Clinic  is closed until further notice. For more information, contact (415) 282-9603

We look forward to seeing all of you when we reopen and appreciate all the support we’ve received, not just in the past few weeks but from our founding in 1980.

The Auricular (Ear) Clinic was started in 1994 as a donation-based community clinic with the mission to provide quality holistic medicine in a safe and welcoming environment to members of the public who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Some of the more common health complaints treated are pain relief, smoking cessation, PMS, stress relief and drug addiction recovery. Patients are seen on a drop-in, first come, first served basis. Treatment sessions typically last between 20-40 minutes and are performed in a group setting while patients relax in a chair.
