Lafayette Acupuncture: Benjamin Dierauf, LAc

At Acupuncture Lafayette CA,  I bring 25+ years of experience to help you with the treatment of aches and pains, injuries, digestive disorders, gynecological issues, allergies, immune deficiencies, fatigue, sleep disorders and stress, and many other conditions. For information on conditions I work with, check out ‘Conditions Treated’.

After completing the Initial Intake Form, your first visit will include a detailed review of the issues affecting your health and quality of life. From this, we will work out a comprehensive treatment plan together. Besides acupuncture, I may prescribe herbal medicine and supplements, and use other methods to help you, including bodywork, moxa, suction cups and guasha (dermal scraping). For more info, check out ‘Common Acupuncture Questions’.
