Products & Services


Acupuncture is a highly effective way to help remove obstacles to the body’s own healing mechanisms. Thin, solid and sterile stainless steel needles are inserted into acupuncture points. Insertion of the slender needles goes unnoticed by some, and to others feels like a small pinch followed by a sensation of tingling, numbness, slight ache, traveling warmth, or heaviness. Sometimes people feel a sensation at a distance from the point of insertion. Needles remain in place for 15 to 40 minutes. Usually relaxation and an elevation of spirit accompany treatment. It is as normal to want to continue resting as it is to be immediately energized. Some notice an immediate relief of symptoms, for others it takes a day or two after the treatment.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is a major component of Oriental Medicine and has been used for over 3000 years in China and worldwide.

Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET)

NAET is a safe and effective technique in detecting and eliminating or desensitizing all types of allergies. NAET combines Kinesiology (Muscle Responsive Testing) , Acupressure and Oriental Medicine to clear allergic reactions by resetting neural pathways.

I took my son to see Dr. Jens for chronic ear fluids due to a chronic running nose and I strongly suspected food sensitivities. I was very pleased to find out the unless the allergy testing our Dr. did, which was uncomfortable and gave no results, Dr. Jens' method is very pleasant and also confirmed some of my suspects and others. The treatment was pleasant as well and now we can finally get rid of this chronic problem.

Dr. Jens is very knowledgeable and he is also an amazing person. He gave us many tools going forward and now we can improve our diet as well. We will definitely continue with the coarse of treatment!

I was experiencing severe pain and immobility from an injury. I called Advanced Acupuncture Center and Alma was able to get me in to see Dr. Paula within an hour. Dr. Paula examined me and treated me right away. Her expertise was evident immediately. She treated pretty much my entire body. She took her time, explained each aspect of treatment, noted and mentioned issues I had not even brought to her attention, and the result was wonderful. I was surprised at the immediate relief I received as I had been treated elsewhere years ago with acupuncture without result. I honestly felt 90 % better!
Everyone I met in the office was professional, nurturing, and genuinely seemed to care.
I really can't say enough great things about this practice.

Customer Testimonials

I have gone to Jen twice now for food sensitivities. I have seen major improvement. I have more energy, feels like I have sparked a rejuvenating engine in my body. Looking forward to my next appt.

I wish I could give them 10 stars! They truly know what they are doing. Jens and Vanessa have your best interest and will take the time to really help whatever needs you have.

I walked into Dr. Jens office with intense neck and lower back pain as a result of a car accident. I couldn’t turn my head, I couldn’t exercise, it hurt to sit at my desk at work and I wasn’t able to sleep. I had tried several other types of treatments in the past such as Chiropractic, Pain Relievers and Cortisone Injections with little relief. After I left my first appointment with Jens I was already noticing a decrease in pain and I was able to start moving my neck again. I was amazed by the quick results and in just a couple of weeks I was back to my old self again. Dr. Jens is genuine and he has a real passion for helping people. His knowledge and expertise is what helped me get my life back and I am incredibly thankful! While I no longer need to see him for any neck or back pain, I now recommend him to friends and family that have pain or allergy concerns.

I have known Jens for a couple of years. I feel he represents the best of what our profession has to offer.. He is kind, caring, and dedicated to healing. I would trust him treating my family and my own patients.

Hands down, Jens is just wonderful! Not only excellent at his acupuncture, he is also versed in Chinese medicine and nutrition. He personally has experience with Gerson Therapy, and I was just impressed he had even heard of it! He is truly a caring person and wants to help you improve your health and wellness. What a nice change! No upselling here in this office, and you receive plenty of time and attention in your appointment. Jens also offers NAET if you are seeking allergy relief. My husband has seen Jens and also my young son (age 3 for NAET).

I find Jens to be an amazing resource and can always count on feedback from him as I modify and improve my personal health & wellness plan. We are so lucky to have his Centre right here in Livermore!

Parking is easy with space in front of his office, or in front of the other residential buildings. I also find it easy to make appointments, and there isn't a huge back log where you have to wait.

My wife has been dealing with migraines for two years. They are triggered by some colors and patterns. We when to Jens on the recommendation of a good friend. The office is professional, relaxing and comfortable. Jens spent a lot of time talking and listening to my wife then explained the procedure.
It was painless and relaxing and the best part is, her migraines are significantly better. Places she could not go in to she is able to enter.
