The origins of Nakamura Acupuncture began a half century ago when Koichi Nakamura embarked on his journey towards becoming a master acupuncturist.

Born and raised in Hokkaido, Japan, Koichi graduated from world renowned Toyo Shinkyu College of Oriental Medicine. Licensed in both acupuncture and shiatsu massage, Koichi continued his training by apprenticing under his master, Sensei Okada, who was considered to be the preeminent acupuncturist in Japan.

Koichi moved his family to the United States in 1974 and settled in San Diego in 1978. With over 45 years of experience practicing Japanese acupuncture and shiatsu massage, Koichi has successfully treated over ten thousand patients. Recognized as the best acupuncturist in San Diego, Koichi is regularly referred by nurses, physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, and other medical professionals.

 

"Master of Acupuncture, Dr Koichi Nakamura was introduced to me by a friend as the best acupuncturist in California. He takes care of those who have tried other sources and not received help. When I had a serious problem with allergies back in 1981, I received treatments from Dr. Nakamura, and the condition disappeared for ten years. I have been receiving treatments ever since then for all of my health concerns and have been very satisfied with the results. He is indeed the best!" —A., San Diego

He said that there was probably issues with my circulation that he could improve using acupuncture. I only had two sessions and it worked, I got pregnant! I have continued my acupuncture and have make it through my first trimester and the baby and I are both healthy. Thanks Hiro!!" —R.S., Westminster

Setsuko received her undergraduate degree from SDSU and completed her formal acupuncture training in San Diego at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, one of the leading schools for integrative medicine.

This experience, along with the growing medical needs of her friends & family, compelled Setsuko to follow in her father's footsteps.

 

"Setsuko has an amazing calming energy when you are on the table and getting treated. She has an intuitive nature and knows instinctively what your body needs. She is also very knowledgeable and gives detailed answers to your questions so that you have a better understanding of what is going on. I always leave my sessions with her feeling better and clearer minded. I would highly recommend coming to see her for any ailments, physical or emotional." —K.L., San Diego
