Pleasant Hill acupuncture, Benjamin Dierauf, LAc

The best place for Pleasant Hill acupuncture is at the border of Pleasant Hill, Lafayette and Walnut Creek. Benjamin Dierauf, LAc, brings 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’.

We are located approximately 9 minutes from downtown Pleasant Hill, unless you run into significant traffic. If you take the freeway, it’s better to ignore Google maps and take the Pleasant Hill north exit off of Highway 24 – unless you’re coming in around when Acalanes High School lets out at 3:05 PM. If Highway 680 is backed up, you might want to try the Pleasant Hill Road route instead.

Your first visit to Pleasant Hill acupuncture 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’.
