What we do

"Because health is determined by
social conditions."

HERBAN Health is launching an expanded service from our website to provide community health information so that we all can be healthier and be able to advocate for changes that will create a healthier community. In addition to updates of the clinics and classes, people will be able to get:

- Clear and direct contact information on the areas that are required to lead a healthy life such as safety, food, housing, education, health care;
   - Opportunity to have community discussions on areas that are affecting people’s well being, so that people can work together to make changes in the community to increase the health of both the community and the individuals in it.

Herban Health believes that people themselves best understand their own circumstances and we honor and strive to support those who want to heal themselves.
AND that inequality of resources is ingrained in our healthcare system which affects the entire fabric of our society.


Herban Health offers a regular schedule of acupuncture clinics and meditation groups. We also hold a variety of holistic health classes on topics including diabetes, digestive problems, stress reduction, insomnia, children's health, exercise, stopping smoking, losing weight, and high blood pressure.

Acupuncture has been proved through controlled trials to be an effective treatment for many conditions, including headache, depression, nausea and vomiting, hypertension, and various types of pain such as low back pain, For a more complete list of conditions tested, please see the WHO report here.

We offer our services free of charge although donations are welcome but optional. If you are interested in learning more, please see our Clinic and Class Calendar. Everyone is welcome!

Community Connections: Resources and Advocacy

The places where we live, work, play and learn affect our health, including in the extended East Palo Alto community. To live a healthy life, advances in our community are needed not only in health care but also in education, childcare, housing, access to food, our environment, youth, business, law, media, community planning, creativity, safety and transportation.

In order to be healthier, we need access to RESOURCES to help us meet our essential needs and we also need to join together in unity with purpose to ADVOCATE for ourselves and our community.
