"I believe Acupuncture is a medicine for all stages of life. The physiological, emotional and social aspects of aging intrigue me, and I enjoy working with optimizing health during these transitions- from birth to adolescence, fertility to menopause, from midlife to later in life.


I welcome collaboration with other health modalities and practitioners, and find great value in integrated and dynamic health care."

With so many vitamins and supplements available, how do you choose the right ones?


Many of my patients will bring in the supplements they are currently taking for me to look over.

I take a targeted approach to supplementation,

and like to have specific goals in mind when choosing the right combination.

Herbal prescriptions and supplements plans

are based on specific needs and goals,

and I often will review or order out blood work

and functional labs to evaluate

your specific health and wellness needs.


When used correctly,

targeted nutrient and herbal therapies

work to heal imbalances

so you can feel your best.

Treatment at Arcadia Farber, L.Ac. is more than just Acupuncture. I specialize in providing you with comprehensive holistic and integrative care, using a hands on approach to diagnosis, and creating individualized treatment plans based on your unique needs.

I treat all types of pain and can help to heal a wide range of injuries and illnesses.

 Among it's many benefits, Acupuncture is effective

in the treatment of chronic and autoimmune diseases, the common cold, hormone imbalances, fertility, enhancing energy, and improving digestive health.

Acupuncture can help reduce the side effects of medications like chemotherapy, and is a wonderful adjunct therapy before and after surgery.

Cupping is widely recognized as an effective modality for both children and adults to prevent injury and speed recovery in injured or tense muscle tissue. Cupping treats pain, headaches, asthma, bronchitis, and provides support for a healthy back and nervous system.

Facial Rejuvenation without Botox






The Acupuncture Facial gives your skin a vibrant and youthful glow that is truly healthy from the inside out.

Each treatment rejuvenates your skin, eases fine lines and wrinkles, lifts and tones facial muscles, and enhances your natural collagen and circulation.

We use ultra-fine Acupuncture needles along specific facial points, and add in Acupressure

and lymphatic massage depending on your needs.

This treatment is relaxing and balancing

for the whole body- so you both look and feel fabulous and refreshed.

The Acu-Facial can be added on to your Acupuncture session, or as a stand alone treatment.

Reset your body and lose Weight

A buildup of toxins from the environment, lifestyle, and dietary choices

can compromise energy, mental clarity,

body weight and athletic ability.

Try our comprehensive 10 or 28 day cleanse programs to reset your eating habits, jump start weight loss, and re-energize your body.

Follow an organized and structured diet plan, complete with recipes and daily email reminders as a safe and balanced way to effectively detoxify and reset.

We provide you with all the appropriate nutrients  so you feel fueled, energized and nourished, while cleansing safely and naturally.
