Jules Dirsa, LAc
Jules Dirsa is a licensed acupuncturist with many years of experience in both individual and community acupuncture. He is dedicated to the healing process of each of his clients, and meets with each client where they are at in an open-hearted and non-judgmental way. He utilizes gentle, effective treatments which pull from the tools of Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbs, cupping) in order to help each client unlock the healing potential within themselves. Jules has a special interest in healing clients with concerns related to fertility, acute and chronic pain, mental and emotional health regulation, and support during times of transition (such as gender transition, transition out of addictions, grief, aging and other major life changes). Jules strongly believes you can feel healthy at any age, any size, any phase of life.
Prior to entering the field of acupuncture in 2009, Jules worked for several years as an advocate and case manager for youth experiencing homelessness in both San Francisco and Minneapolis/St Paul. Youth work led him to meet so many people who are still dear to his heart, and through many long nights, allowed him to learn much about himself, resiliency, chosen family, harm reduction, trauma-informed care and the impact of the structural oppression of mental, physical and spiritual health.
