Center for Integrative Care is San Diego's premiere wellness center focused on optimal health and personalized, patient-centered care.
The purpose of our office is to help as many people as possible to achieve Optimal Health and to educate them about the benefits of nutrition and Oriental Medicine so they can educate their family and friends.
Dr. Mancini is an excellent practitioner as well as Uzi. The office staff is friendly, helpful and professional. I would not hesitate referring anyone to this office!
If you aren't sure about what acupuncture can do, and wonder if Dr. Mancini can help . . . look at the patient guest book in the waiting room. That's the real Yelp. Hand written book (I believe there are 2 of these books) filled with years of patient testimonials on the glass table in the waiting room. A patient's cholesterol was dramatically lowered during/after treatment with Mancini? Even though that patient previously tried every pharmaceutical, which didn't help? Yep. I've seen about 4 acupuncturists before. None are of this quality. Tip $ - yes they take insurance and know how to work with your insurance company. Tip 2- no the needles aren't painful, it's like a quick bug bite that fades immediately.
I have had a personal battle with repetitive stress injury (RSI)/tendinitis from typing too much and bad posture. I have found many healing modalities helpful in my search to end my pain. The computer which was my key to creativity, financial freedom and fun now made me anxious thinking about using it. I had used physical therapy, trigger point massage, chiropractor and other treatments, but acupuncture was the most effective treatment so far. Dr. Mancini was exactly what I was looking for in an acupuncturist. As an engineer I love how things work and energy channels and explanations that cannot be measured are not ways to convince me about acupuncture treatments. Dr. Mancini, however, speaks in mostly western terms and explains how the treatment works from a biochemical and neurological perspective. After about 4 treatments I started feeling a little progress and about 8 treatments in I felt even better, but around 14 treatments I was at 80% of my normal level and have had continual improvements after leaving treatment 3 weeks ago. Comparing my recovery this time vs before (I have been on workers comp twice before) with physical therapy I feel like my flexibility and pain relief is much better. Dr. Mancini unlike most traditional doctors has great bedside manner and carries a positive and uplifting attitude in every meeting with him. I will definitely be back when other issues arise or for his optimal health plan. My hands thank you Dr. Mancini.

This place is amazing and has so many cool ways to help improve your life! I came for the ARP Wave Therapy which really helped me heal a horribly painful and long-lasting bout of tendonitis and bursitis in my shoulder. The therapy gave me back almost full range of motion and major pain relief in a very short period of time. I traveled there from Los Angeles to have the treatments and it was worth it! Then I saw that they are doing brain mapping and brain training now! It looks so cool, I plan to try that next. These folks are professionals, know what they are doing and also very kind. I highly recommend them!

Very clean, courteous and downright professional. They are based off appointments and literally take you right into your session. The parking spots can get quite full but usually there is always one spot open for the taking.
