See What Our Patients Say About This Location:

I was in San Francisco for one week visiting my son.  I had very high stress levels and anxiety that I also had in New York.  On the second day in San Francisco, I was lying in bed and felt a tightness in my chest and a very high anxiety level that made it impossible for me to sleep. My thoughts were racing and I literally was not able to sleep. I emailed Dan at 3:00am and he responded at 6:30am and said he could see me that day.   After one treatment, my stress levels went down and the tightness in my chest disappeared.  I went to see him a total of four times in the seven days I was in San Francisco.  I am now back in New York and feeling so calm.  He also gave me herbs that helped tremendously.  Dan is a very knowledgeable and kind person.  He listens to you and understands what the problem is.   Thank you Dan and I’m looking forward to seeing you again on my next trip.

Dan is pleasant and efficient  Unfortunately, I no longer work in the city so it's a treck to get there, but if you can see him absolutely go! Booking/ scheduling is super easy and the office is in a convenient location if you live or work near downtown. Also took my insurance which is a huge plus.

Acupuncturist & Alternative Medicine Practitioner located in SoMa, South Beach, San Francisco, CA

Dan Abels, L.Ac
Diplomate O.M.
MSME, MSTCM

After a successful engineering career working in Silicon Valley, Dan turned his energy and analytical skills toward a much different pursuit.  Instead of analyzing electronic devices, he uses the practice of Chinese Medicine to diagnose and treat patients.

Dan was born and raised in Ohio. After graduating Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Dayton, Dan moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to pursue a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at The University of California, Berkeley. After graduating, Dan spent the next decade working as an engineer in Silicon Valley.

After turning to an acupuncturist who was able to successfully resolve several chronic health conditions, Dan was drawn to the medicine. Dan wanted to study it further in an effort to understand how insertion of needles is able to have such profound effects. Dan chose to study acupuncture and herbal medicine at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine where he received a Master’s of Science Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Dan is a licensed acupuncturist with the state of California and is nationally certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Dan has lived in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco for 14 years.  When Dan is not in the office, you can often find him in a yoga or spinning class or out walking his German Shepherd-Corgie mixed breed dog, Sammy.
