Acupuncture is the practice of using fine, gentle needles to release tension, stress, and pain from the body.  Acupuncture is an opportunity to look at your overall health or specific health concerns and make changes to allow for a healthy, balanced, and relaxed body and mind. It is deeply relaxing and energizing therapy leaving you with a feeling of grounded and centered calm.

Acupuncture Clinic – A community room clinic a few days a week that allows us to treat more people at our location in a traditional Chinese style.


Acupressure is a form of massage therapy in which pressure is applied to acupoints (the same points used in acupuncture). Acupressure releases tension along pathways in the body, removing blockages and allowing Qi to flow freely. This is a deeply relaxing and energizing therapy.

Tai Ji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan) is the art of cultivating consciousness. It consists of soft gentle movements which can be preformed by people of all ages more or less regardless of physical condition or previous training. It has been called meditation in movement and exercises body, mind and spirit.

“Beautiful Inn with many luxuries! The Stanford Inn is located just south of Mendocino over the bridge. The area is quiet with many native plants, indoor pool and hot tub, vegan restaurant, and spa services. Probably the best hotel in the area! Breakfast is included with fresh juice and plant-based choices. My husband and I considered B&Bs in Mendocino but thought the rates were too high for their amenities. This Inn has it all! While the town can be explored in a few hours, it is easy to spend hours at this Inn.”
