Paola is extremely skilled, compassionate, and thoughtful with her work. I especially appreciate how much she asks questions, listens, and takes a holistic view of the patient and her practice of acupuncture. I highly recommend her work!

Customers point out the reasons why we are the best acupuncture clinic in San Francisco

Paola is amazing! With the first treatment, she relieved the pain in my back that had been bothering me for weeks. I tried stretching, pt and massage but nothing helped me until the acupuncture treatments. Within a few weeks my pain disappeared!

New customers at Point of Life Acupuncture become repeat clients because our style of acupuncture gets to the root of the problem! Founder Paola Acuna, LAc. practices a unique style of healing based on the unique principles of Japanese teachings. The method she uses is a Japanese form of acupuncture that often gets quick and clear results for patients.

I highly recommend Paola.. and it isn’t just my opinion… she won Best in the Bay!! And YES, she truly is. I have gone to different acupuncturists over the past 20 years. And I have been seeing Paola for years. Paola is simply amazing. She is a clear communicator with a great bedside manner. She has a professional and calming energy that has you know you are in good hands. And best of all her skills are magical! Her technique is gentle, she uses thin needles and I ALWAYS feel better getting up from the table than I did when I walked in. Over the years Paola has helped me with digestive issues, pain, headaches, vertigo, and nausea. She even helped reduce scarring from a minor surgery. This year I ended up with long covid symptoms that are much worse than COVID itself. I went to many doctors and practitioners. And today she is the ONLY practitioner who has been able to significantly help reduce or eliminate my Long Covid Symptoms of shortness of breath & exhaustion. She is amazing.

We ensure that our client’s experience is very easy and relaxing from the moment they step into the office. Often our patients are delighted before leaving the table with results seen right on the spot. Paola’s passion and love for acupuncture emanate from each treatment and patients praise their results constantly.

Paola is the bay areas best kept secret. Her technique is guided through years of instruction and experience. While she has a gentle touch that can lull you into a calming deep sleep, the impact is truly powerful. I’ve spend years with severe neck/shoulder pain causing anxiety, migraines and causing me to compromise my work and activity in life. After the very first session I felt different. I’ve been seeing Paola for years and referred friends who have had similar healing experiences for different troubles. As a prior skeptic of acupuncture as a treatment, I can confidently say her work has done more for me than any other western doctor. I know this sounds grandiose but she really is an incredible person with the desire and skill to help others. I feel so grateful for her help through my health journey
