Acupuncture – Back Pain

“After being on my back and barely able to move for over a month, I decided to try a different approach and try acupuncture for the first time. I am so glad that I took the time to read the reviews and find a professional that I could trust – the reviews don’t lie, Benjamin […]

Acupuncture Internship

“I was a student of Benjamin’s over 13 years ago at Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley. He was an exceptional instructor and practitioner then, and continues to provide outstanding patient-centered care today. Benjamin graciously accepted me as his intern for over three months. His gentle, calm nature immediately puts his patients at ease. […]

Acupuncture for Back Pain

“I have benefited from Benjamin Dierauf’s acupuncture since 1995. Initially, it was recommended that I use acupuncture instead of massage for my long-achey back. Not only did I feel that Benjamin’s acupuncture was deeper and more thorough than massages, but there were other euphoric benefits that I experienced as well. Benjamin can calm my entire […]

Acupuncture for Cold Prevention

“I have worked with Benjamin in a professional capacity as an administrator at the Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley. Never mind that he has been a godsend as an administrator, he just about saved my life more than once. Okay, I exaggerate a little, but it sure felt like it. Whenever I have been […]

Acupuncture for Neck Pain

“Gentle, relaxed, and effective – with 25+ years of experience, Benjamin Dierauf has been treating my chronic shoulder and neck pain with acupuncture, suction cups, scraping/guasha, and Chinese herbs. He alleviated much pain and succeeded at the same time also with treating insomnia, a stress related condition. I went to his office with a fear […]

Acupuncture – Shoulder Pain

“When I first walked into Benjamin’s office I was feeling the worst muscle and nerve pain traversing my left shoulder blade throughout my left arm. I could barely tie my shoes, let alone type on my computer. I am no stranger pain, with 3 natural childbirths, plus multiple athletic injuries incurred over the years by […]

Neck Pain Acupuncture

“Benjamin has a very calming and relaxed manner and made me feel totally safe and cared for. I had a neck injury earlier this year that is still hanging on. After Benjamin’s treatment, my neck felt more relaxed, mobile and pain-free than it has in awhile. Plus, my whole body felt relaxed and grounded, which […]

Acupuncture Healing

“Whatever it is that is plaguing you currently, Benjamin can help. His kind heart and extensive knowledge and understanding of traditional Chinese medicine afford him the ability to approach each patient and each ailment from a deeply intuitive space. It is this unique gift that makes him such an incredible healer.” – K. O. (Walnut […]

Acupuncture for Chemotherapy

“I’ve got some complex issues stemming from cancer treatment. I’ve had acupuncture from four different practitioners, and find Benjamin the most adept. Since what bothers me the most can vary day to day it isn’t that I can be treated the same each time. Benjamin is sensitive to addressing whatever my needs are each visit. […]

Acupuncture for Aging

“As an early baby boomer I am in at age where aging is supposed to be a health challenge. Does aging mean reduced health? Does telling yourself “I feel OK”, getting regular visits to the MD, taking your vitamins and medicine mean wellness? What if, like your vehicle, your body needs maintenance, a tune-up, even […]

Acupuncture for Knee Pain

“I’m writing this review as both a patient of Benjamin’s and as a fellow practitioner. I’ve known Benjamin for many years as a leader in the field, when he was the head of California’s acupuncture association. Over the years since first meeting him, I’d had many casual Benjamin sightings, and always found him kind, gracious, […]

Acupuncture for Insomnia

“I’ve struggled with crippling chronic insomnia for more than 2 decades. Out of desperation I began taking prescription sleeping pills and anything else purported to alleviate insomnia for most of those years, but nothing worked well and although I would sleep a couple to a few hours a night, I always felt kind of ill, […]

Acupuncture for Numbness

“I highly recommend Benjamin! He is kind and knowledgeable and professional. He listened to all my concerns and addressed each one. He helped me with low back pain, as well as toe numbness. Benjamin even diagnosed my fairly mild case of shingles (which my primary care doctor misdiagnosed as bug bites) AND helped me heal […]

Acupuncture for Migraine

“I’ve always been prone to constant migraines, and have adrenal fatigue. I’ve been through so many Doctors and medications, and pretty much just gave up on the idea of finding any real relief. I began a health approach through Pacific Integrative Functional Medicine (in San Ramon) which is where I met Benjamin. I am just […]

Acupuncture for Frozen Shoulder

“I am so grateful I stumbled upon Benjamin for Acupuncture six months ago. I suffer from chronic pain and frozen shoulder, and Benjamin has helped me tremendously with both conditions. I have never met someone as warm, patient, and as talented at his profession as Benjamin. I used to go to an acupuncture clinic in […]

Acupuncture for Anxiety

“First off, he is quick minded, gentle in nature, and an open person. He also knows his stuff and is good at explaining the relationships between symptoms, ailments, diet, and treatment. As a bonus, his price is super reasonable. I was debating between 4 stars or 5…this morning was my first visit with Benjamin so […]
