Roland Steele, L.Ac is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist with over 14 years of experience in treating patients. He is board-certified to practice all aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine – acupuncture, herbalism, cupping and more -- through the State of California Acupuncture Board and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). He also obtained his massage certificate from the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing.

An avid student of Oriental Philosophy since his teen years, Roland made the move to study Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2006 and enrolled in the prestigious Emperor’s College of Traditional Medicine, the number two ranked school in the United States among colleges that specialize in Chinese Medicine. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with his Master’s Degree in 2009 and began practicing in 2010. Unlike many who enter Chinese Medicine after experiencing healing through acupuncture and other Chinese Medicine modalities, Roland actually experienced a profound illness immediately after graduating from school in the form of autoimmune arthritis. While it put a damper on his acupuncture practice, causing him to stop practicing for a time, he was able to heal himself using his knowledge of Chinese Medicine which gave him a profound insight into not only autoimmune conditions but the chronic pain so often associated with these disease states. It also gave him a deep understanding of the human body and the true value of good health. He has helped many patients in their healing journey who have suffered the same type of arthritis and similar autoimmune conditions. A life-long athlete who played numerous sports including ice hockey, soccer, football and, in later years, spent many hours in the gym, Roland can also help with all types of acute injuries and chronic pain related to injury.

As an experienced practitioner, Roland has also successfully treated or helped with numerous health problems including all different types of digestive problems --- such as IBS, Gastritis, Crohn’s Disease, chronic constipation, acid reflux, and more. Other common conditions such as stress, anxiety, menstrual problems, perio-menopause and menopause, impotence, insomnia, headaches, hemorrhoids, chronic constipation, fertility, lung issues such as COPD, asthma and bronchitis, heart health, sinus problems, low immunity and chronic fatigue. In addition, Roland can help with overall health including men’s health, women’s health and anti-aging as well as help with athletic performance.

A session with Roland will include the modality that best suits your current needs. This can include acupuncture, acupressure, E-Stim (electrical stimulation of the acupuncture points, Moxibustion (using heated herbs on the acupuncture points and channels), Gua Sha (scraping), infrared heat, cupping and herbal linaments. An experienced herbalist who spent many years working with renowned Master herbalist Ron Teeguarden, you may also receive herbal recommendations as part of your treatment. Acupuncture and herbs are a common combination that can often expedite and promote more efficient healing. In addition to the above modalities, Roland also may use stretching, massage and Tui-na (a specialized form of Chinese Massage) and/or recommend some Qi-Gong movements.

Why Others Need It

Acupuncture is unlike any other medicine. I love it because it helps to harness your body’s own restorative powers to help heal what is ailing it. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and it still continues to help people daily. It helps to solve so many medical conditions, emotional disorders, gastrointestinal issues, sleep disorders, stress-induced pain, hormone imbalances, mood imbalances and much more! It also increases blood flow to increase healing, stimulates the body’s release of anti-inflammatory cells to help reduce local inflammation and also to reduce localized body pain. It strives to help balance the body to where it needs to be. Acupuncture not only helps with body pain but it also helps to balance the various different organ systems within the body. Not only can you feel better, but you can also balance the entire body while doing it!
