Important Announcement

I, Andrew Macfarlane L.Ac, owner and clinical director am currently on sabbatical. I will return to the clinic in fall of 2024. The clinic remains open while I’m away and my associate Hsiung Leu L.Ac will be offering acupuncture/herbal treatment in-house for my past and current patients as well as new patients. Hsiung Leu has the same Classical Chinese Medical training as me, is a very skilled practitioner, and is a deeply kind human being. You will be in excellent hands under his care.
