Alex Tuggle L.Ac., M.S.T.C.M


Welcome to my Holistic healing clinic.

Holistic healing means that I specialize in treating the root of your health condition with Natural medicine such as Herbs, Acupuncture, Nutritional supplements and Dietary counseling so that you can take control of your own health. I prefer to optimize your well being to bring you to new level of health, rather then just covering up your symptoms temporarily with drugs or medications.

I personalize every single treatment protocol to your individual needs each time you make a visit. My medical examination and diagnosis takes about 1.5 hours and takes into account many different factors pertaining to your overall health condition.

I provide quality care in every aspect of my multi-disciplinary approach, which includes: Acupuncture, Nutritional counseling and Supplement protocols, Chi Nei Tsang (abdominal energy healing), Asian Bodywork, Chinese Herbs, and Medical Qigong.

I have training and experience in the treatment of many medical conditions, but I specialize in treating:


  • With Holistic healing medicine, I will provide multiple healing strategies to treat both your symptoms and also the root or underlying cause of your health condition. Not every illness requires the same treatment. I will identify your presenting "Pattern" through questioning, palpation, Chinese Tongue and Pulse diagnosis, as well as Hair Mineral Analysis to correctly design the most appropriate treatment. These treatments include:








What is Holistic Healing all about?

Our physical bodily health is deeply rooted in our mental and emotional well being.

Stress is a powerful force that can adversely effect both the body and mind. Mental or emotional stress can cause many biochemical reactions that create oxidative stress, mineral imbalances, and can lead to Adrenal gland fatigue and Chronic fatigue syndrome.

Many different toxic chemicals and toxic heavy metals are now polluting the environment we live in, and are contaminating our bodies, producing illnesses, lowered immune functionn and many various symptoms that Traditional Medicine is ill-equipped to handle. I provide a clear understanding of how these toxins effect your "Neuro-endocrine" system and physiology and give you a step-by-step treatment plan for addressing the underlying causes of your symptoms.

Holistic healing comes from finding your true natural state and living in harmony with yourself. I help many clients with Chronic fatigue syndrome with natural remedies such as Nutritional Balancing using Hair Mineral Analysis to help determine which minerals are out of balance inside your body, and supplementing with the right combination of vitamins, minerals and other natural supplements such as Chinese herbal medicine, Naturopathic medicine, and anti aging lifestyle counseling which includes Qigong, Meditation, and simple exercises that you can do in your own home.

By using Hair Mineral Analysis testing I am able to diagnose many endocrine imbalances and metabolic trends that can cause heavy metals to accumulate in your soft tissues, where blood test my not be able to detect them at all.

Without a good way to eliminate toxic heavy metals and resolve the stress of daily life, disease and discomfort can result. By identifying and eliminating the causative factors of stress by combining Nutrition, Chinese herbal medicine, Acupuncture, and Chi Nei Tsang I allow your body to return to its natural state of health, by REMOVING THE BLOCKAGES AND NOURISHING THE DEFICIENCIES.

"Alex combined deep tissue with acupressure and he really worked out a lot of the tension I had built up in my body. I truly consider this the best massage of my life, I left feeling not only relaxed and rejuvenated, but also as if I had worked with a physical therapist, acupuncturist, and masseuse all in one.

My final thoughts: if you are looking for an amazing massage that offers you a chance to reconnect with your body and work on tension release, this is the place for you. I have found no better and I don't think I could. Go!"

- JZ of Oakland, CA

"I couldn't have hoped for more rapid recovery. Alex is holistic, and his treatment works on many levels.

"My pain is reduced to a fraction of what it was, I'm much happier, and I have been unlocking parts of my life I didn't expect: my dreams are more rapidly resolving, the vast reduction of PTSD makes meditation and socializing so much more rewarding, I'm getting my life back."

- Oliver of Berkeley, CA

"I have chronic back pain, and have had this for the past 4 years. Alex Tuggle has been one of the acupuncturists who have been able to achieve some pain relief for me.

"Alex approached my case unlike anyone else I had seen, and he used different acupuncture points. He is someone willing to try new things, take different approaches on the treatment, and uses enough, but not too much force.

"I highly recommend Alex Tuggle for anyone, especially if they have experienced or have pain."

- Sarryh H. from Los Angeles, CA

“Alex is an amazing acupuncturist. His treatments are gentle yet effective. I have seen many different practitioners including acupuncturists, chiropractors, rolfers, and physical therapists.

Alex's treatments consistently gave me lasting relief from chronic pain due to an old car accident. This was unique because often treatments have only a temporary (a few hours) effect and I do not feel that they address the underlying muscular and emotional issues that Alex was able to resolve. I only wish that he still was in Los Angeles so that I could keep seeing him! His treatments truly address mind, body and spirit."

- Ashley B. from Los Angeles, CA

"I strongly recommend the services of Alex Tuggle, nutritionist extraordinaire. He uses Analytical Research Labs for hair analysis and can recommend a very effective (if somewhat plodding) nutritional balancing program.

"He also answers any number of ridiculous questions through both email and phone. Simply getting a hair test and trying to make sense of it yourself is unlikely to get you anywhere, but with some practical guidance, you can really take a step toward feeling better."

- Ben of Amarillo, TX

" Alex has done wonders since I have been receiving services from him this past year and is by far the best acupuncturist and primary health care provider I have ever come across!

I knew from the first session that Alex really cares about his patients and wants to see them reach their healthy state, I have never had any health care provider take the time that Alex did to answer all of my questions and be there via email or phone if I needed to follow up after our initial consultation. I have been incorporating a herbal daily regime and including acupuncture and I have experienced positive changes even after Alex told me it could take up to two years for my body to get back to a full healthy stage. Not only do I receive acupuncture during each visit, I also have a follow up discussion with Alex to express any concerns and my progress. Alex is very warming, welcoming and is very educated, he has given me various exercise techniques to help with my symptoms along with been a therapist by helping me open up about the problems I have faced in life and how to best handle them so they do not haunt my body long term."

- Michaela W. San Francisco, CA

" Alex was able to release the tension that I had within my body, he even found some spots that I did not know that I even had. "

- Jabez J. Oakland, CA

" What I remember most about working with Alex was his combination of knowledge about Chinese medicine mixed with his knowledge of modern/ western medicine. He could explain concepts of complementary medicines in modern medical terms. I prefer to understand thoroughly what or why the treatments are working. And, the work was all very helpful. I ended up trying a hair analysis as well, which provided a lot of helpful information that unlocked some root causes that led to where I feel so much more balanced now and able to get back in balance on my own if things go array because I understand what's going on. "

- Christie O. San Francisco, CA

" Alex has been treating me for a couple of years now using hair mineral analysis, nutritional balancing, acupuncture and herbs. I have seen great results working with Alex! My allergies are almost 100% gone, and I feel the healthier now than I ever have as an adult. Alex is extremely knowledgeable and patient, and willing to explain everything that he is doing to treat me so I feel comfortable and empowered. "

- Lorien HW. Palo Alto, CA

" Alex is an exceptional professional who I would not hesitate to recommend for nutritional balancing, lifestyle counseling, meditations and wellness endeavors. "

- Keerthy S. Sacramento, CA

" Alex is thoroughly knowledgeable in all aspects of Chinese medicine, from expert diagnosis to acupunture needle work. He has a very strong knowledge of nutrition and herbs. He is well versed on all the reputable providers of herbs. He also keeps a fresh stock of herbs for individualized treatments. I also had hair analysis with Alex and found the analysis and the prescribed herbs, minerals and vitamins to be very therapeutic to the healing from my illnesses. Alex also recommended exercises to improve my health and well being. I totally recommend him. "

- Tom M. Berkeley, CA

" Alex is extremely diligent and takes great care in really understanding his clients before prescribing an action plan. He is an expert in nutrition and supplementation who really cares about the well being of his clients. I will definitely continue to work with Alex. "
