Lafayette Acupuncture: Benjamin Dierauf, LAc

At Lafayette Acupuncture & Functional Medicine we bring 25+ years of experience to help you recover and maintain balance and health. This includes 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 we 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, we may prescribe herbal medicine and supplements, and use other methods to help you, including bodywork, moxa, suction cups and guasha (dermal scraping). We may also recommend that you get Functional Medicine lab tests specific for your situation. For more information, check out ‘Common Acupuncture Questions’.
