for the Boise Community

Are you looking for a natural solution that actually works?

Are you someone who doesn't like taking medications? Maybe you've tried other natural remedies but they haven't worked. Or maybe the medications you are taking aren't working well enough. It's very common, especially with people suffering from conditions like chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, arthritis, migraines, neuropathy, high blood pressure, and others listed below. Often people are not given a good solution from conventional doctors OR other natural methods.


That's where we come in. Chinese Medicine is based on a 3,000 year old science of determining the actual cause of your problem and how to address it with specific and effective methods. Many people have a laundry list of disease names and diagnoses but ultimately still don't feel good despite all the testing, medications, and conventional treatments.


Chinese Medicine actually gives you something to do about it. We help people with natural treatments like herbal medicine, acupuncture, cupping, and shiatsu. Our patients report that our treatment methods work better than anything they've tried for years. They report less pain, more energy, and are able to get back to doing the activities they love.

We help you find an herb instead of a pill.

 Natural medicine that works. 

Chinese Medicine of Idaho is a family owned and operated Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Clinic in Boise, Idaho.  Sean and Mara met at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR. After a friendly trip to the farmer’s market and Portland arboretum, they realized they had more in common than their graduate degree and have been together ever since.  After four rainy years in Stumptown, they completed their Master’s program and eventually landed in Boise, drawn to Idaho for its wealth of pristine rivers, beautiful forests, and epic mountains. When they aren’t at the clinic, they can be found boating in their trusty kayak Germaine, exploring the backcountry, or relaxing at home with their cat, Inigo.


We use Acupuncture for Pain, Stress, Mobility and Fitness, Athletic Performance, Stroke Recovery, and to treat a wide variety of internal conditions including Digestive problems, Insomnia, Autoimmune conditions. 

We use the Acupuncture treatment style that will be the most effective for each individual. Our Acupuncture treatment methods include Orthopedic Acupuncture, Distal Acupuncture (Master Tan and Master Teng), Xing Nao Kai Qiao, Auricular Acupuncture, and Scalp Acupuncture. 


When you need Chinese Herbs, you need them to work. That's why we specialize in Chinese Herbal Medicine. We source only the highest quality organic and lab-tested herbs because we care as much about safety and efficacy as you do.

Our practice places a heavy emphasis on Chinese Herbal Medicine, as herbal treatment is often necessary to treat chronic, severe, and recalcitrant problems. Traditional administration of high-grade herbs in traditional dosages frequently yields successful results where other methods have failed.
