Jainen Shin, LAC, M.S., B.S.
About the acupuncturist, Jainen Shin
Her interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine began in her college years when she watched a documentary about Oriental Medicine. She was mesmerized by Oriental Medicine and how it can comfort people with treatments of a wide range of medical problems. She began her journey into holistic medicine after completing her Bachelor of Science degree at University of California, Irvine, where she studied Biological Sciences.
At South Baylo University in Anaheim, she pursued her Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine, receiving training in TCM diagnosis, herbology, as well as acupuncture. While studying at South Baylo University, she continued to excel in clinical understanding and practice through internships as well as externships in various clinical settings in Southern California. After graduation, she received her acupuncture license from the California Acupuncture Board. She is devoted to patient care and management and hopes to assimilate TCM with conventional allopathic medicine.
Jane is available at the office on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8am - 6:30pm. Walk-ins are welcome, but we encourage patients to schedule in advance to minimize wait time.

Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) technique where sterile needles are inserted at particular points on the body. The technique is based on a complete and comprehensive theory, which most importantly outlines the flow of ‘Qi’, translated as ‘life force’ or ‘energy’, circulating with in channels called meridians.
Illnesses and various symptoms are the result of the Qi flow in the meridians being disrupted, blocked, or unbalanced. Acupuncture therapy aims to correct the flow of qi, thereby restoring the equilibrium of the body.
Acupuncture treatment is part of a natural medical practice, which includes Chinese herbal therapy, dietary regiments based on food energetics, cupping and moxibution therapy. Depending on the condition, your therapist may recommend incorporating additional therapies.
How long and how often?
Depending on the condition, age, general health, and individual response to acupuncture, length and frequency of acupuncture treatments will vary. Generally, acute problems will require less treatment for healing, while chronic ailments will require a more frequent and prolonged sets of treatments for relief.
It is common for treatments to be recommended 1-3 times a week for the start of the treatments to reach optimal response in the body, then once a week or every other week to maintain balance.
