Deirdra Claiborne, L.Ac. was the first acupuncturist in California to work in a major university-teaching hospital, UCSF (University of California, San Francisco), with a staff of professors of medicine, emphasizing the treatment of chronic pain (arthritis, fibromyalgia, sciatica, back, neck & joint pain - tendonitis / bursistis and plantar fascitis). Due to her orthopedic knowledge, vast clinical experience of Chinese medicine, extensive studies in China, Deirdra successfully treated many patients who came to this clinic as a last resort for pain relief from injuries and chronic pain-related conditions. When Deirdra went into private practice, other major hospitals and medical doctors outsourced their patients to her because of her well-known pain relief program. Her other specialities include gastro-intestinal conditions, migraines/headaches, allergies, gynecological disorders, menopause. Deirdra also has a comprehensive facial rejuvenation program featuring the latest technology in microcurrent anti-aging treatment for the face with or without needles.
