Acupuncture at CORE
At Santa Cruz CORE, we have a passion for what we do. We make an effort to spend significant time and energy with each patient to ensure their needs are met. For us, it’s more than just acupuncture; our acupuncturists work with multiple healing modalities during an acupuncture session to get you feeling better. Working to create positive change in the body, we use a combination of needling, moxa, gua sha, cupping, ear seeds, massage, and Tai Chi and Qi Gung. Each individual is treated as such, an individual with an unique body and we use our various tools to create the most healing we can in each session.
Santa Cruz CORE Specializes in the following treatments
migraines and chronic headaches
auto immune disorders

Craig is really great. He listens to what is going on and I always leave feeling much better. The last place I went there was pressure to buy new herbs or vitamins every visit. I never get that here. If I ask he gives me a suggestion, but never any pressure.

This place is amazing! All of the staff here; the receptionists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and personal trainers are so talented. In particular in one session with Dr. Rhodes and Craig Sakimoto and I feel like a new man. Craig's acupuncture session was focused on treating adrenal fatigue and to help with sleeping. With on session I was sleeping better and remembering my dreams for the first time in years!

Everyone was welcoming and helpful. Had a great first experience at SC CORE, and will be going back! My first visits have been for acupuncture; however, I am interested in the multiple other resources they offer.

I accidentally came across Santa Cruz Core and could not be happier! The receptionists are always so kind and helpful, and I am so impressed with how Craig (the acupuncturist) truly cares about the whole well being of his patients. I have been to a couple of other places for acupuncture but no one has given me the same holistic care as Craig as. I will keep coming back and have recommended them to numerous friends and family. Thank you!
