Adrienne Dooling, L.Ac

Adrienne Dooling, L.Ac, is an experienced practitioner of Japanese structural acupuncture who recently joined the healthcare team at Eastern Medical Center, in Pleasanton, and offers convenient evening appointments. Schedule a visit with Dooling this month to receive ten percent off the first session.

Dooling provides treatments for chronic diseases, including scoliosis, partial meniscus tears, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, and other conditions. In a supportive and nurturing environment, Dooling’s techniques help decrease pain and stress, and increase mental and physical well-being.

“Adrienne is an exceptional practitioner combined with an enjoyable bedside manner and professionalism,” says Dooling’s client, H.J. Merwin. “She treated both myself and my husband for joint pain and obesity, and discussed options for our health. We developed a lot of trust and were very comfortable. We highly recommend her treatments and view acupuncture as an extremely useful tool for health care.”   

Dooling’s style of Japanese acupuncture differs from Traditional Chinese Medicine with regard to needling technique, but brings about the pleasant feeling of Qi, or energy, commonly associated with Chinese acupuncture. Also unique to Japanese acupuncture is Dooling’s use of shiunko moxibustion at acupuncture points. The moxibustion oils have antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties and strengthen the immune system and boost the healing process.

“I really enjoy the feelings of relief, relaxation and energy that acupuncture treatments give me,” says Dooling’s client, C. Nowell. “I have multiple sports injuries, a bad ankle in particular, and I feel good as new.”

Prior to joining Eastern Medical Center, Dooling practiced in Truckee and Hawaii. She completed a doctoral fellowship in San Jose and a five-year apprenticeship in Kailua and Kona, Hawaii. Dooling’s specializations include Seitai Shinpo pelvic and spinal alignment; drug and alcohol detox; post-traumatic stress disorder; digestive wellness, including lab testing and nutritional recommendations; menopausal symptoms, premenstrual syndrome and other women’s issues.

Location: 5933 Coronado Ln., Ste.100, Pleasanton. For more information and to schedule an appointment, call 925-847-8889 or visit EasternMedicalCenter.com.
