Healing Opportunities, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to providing acupuncture where and when it is needed to assist in periods of transition, crisis and disaster relief, working to augment acupuncture healing by integrating other healing modalities into a model of whole-body wellness.

Through compassionate Care for Caregivers, we support treatment and promotion of acupuncture as a component of functional medicine to improve community health and the lives of those who provide care. With specific use of  NADA Ear Acupuncture Protocol, Healing Opportunities engages in outreach, and offers treatment options of many healing modalities. We provide educational opportunities, and evolve health and healthcare practices through research. We are committed to improving health and well-being in the community of Santa Barbara County.
