About Us

Mission Statement

When I established Acu-Care Health Centers in 1989, I did so with a firm conviction in the power of Oriental medical therapies and their ability to help heal the body, mind and spirit. It is my desire to share with as many people as possible these healing benefits and to provide such services in a nurturing and supportive atmosphere. I care very deeply about those who have entrusted me with their needs and seek to do my best in helping them achieve their goals for increased health and vitality.

Whatever the needs or goals may be, I am available to assist in meeting them. Over the years, I have felt honored to have had the opportunity to work with so many fine people and look forward to sharing with others the healing benefits of Oriental Medicine.

The Physician takes care of people's life...it is the art of humanity...

- Zhong Shan Medical Teaching, March 10, 1933


People choose Acu-Care Health Centers because we have been serving the San Diego and South Bay communities since 1989. Kimberly Hoover, a San Diego acupuncturist and Acu-Care's founder, is unique in her approach because she is experienced in both Chinese and Japanese traditional medicine.

She spent three years training directly with Master Nakazono, world renowned as one of the finest Japanese acupuncturists. Ms. Hoover uses advanced diagnostic methods and is considered a specialist in pulse diagnosis.

In addition, Ms. Hoover has had advanced training in Acupuncture Orthopedics, receiving her diplomate status from the National Board of Acupuncture Orthopedics in 2005.
