Oriental Medicine, also referred to as Chinese Medicine, is a fully-ripened, fully integrated medical system and approach to health, healing and well-being that has been tested and used successfully for nearly 5,000 years. Because of its comprehensive philosophy and foundation based on the principles of Nature, Oriental Medicine is capable of addressing any disease or disorder that may arise in the modern world, just as effectively as those that existed in antiquity. This field of medicine is made up of five distinct branches including that of 1) Right Thinking, 2) Acupuncture, 3) Herbal Medicine, 4) Medical Massage and Manipulation, and 5) Nutritional and Dietary Science.
We take the best from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and combine it with the best of Natural Western Medicine in our Functional Medicine approach. In our concierge-like treatment, you get the hands-on traditional assessment and you get cutting-edge assessment of functional laboratory analysis. Together, we can not only assess and enhance your state of health and wellness, but also head off more challenging health issues before they take root.
Acupuncture is one branch of the greater field of Oriental Medicine. It is a highly effective medical treatment modality that works by regulating the body’s bio-electric life force called Qi (pronounced chee). The World Health Organization has long recognized an extensive list of diseases and disorders that can be successfully treated with acupuncture, based on controlled clinical trials. Our treatments are both gentle and powerful. We also utilize laser and microcurrent electrostimulation for those who prefer an alternative to traditional acupuncture.
Qigong (pronounced Chee Gung) is the ancient energetic root of Oriental Medicine. Using breath, posture, and conscious intention, Qigong is the practical integration of mind-body-spirit medicine. Today, millions of people in China use Qigong for healing, keeping the body and mind vital and flexible, and for spiritual development, enrichment and realization. It is a medical and spiritual art form that uses the mind not only to heal the body, but also to heal itself. Because it is not bound by any theological system, it can be used to deepen the spiritual experience of life regardless of one’s philosophy, religion or belief system.
We provide the highest quality coaching services for those who want to establish and maintain high level health, or who are navigating through the challenges of an illness. We help you to have the information, mindset and support necessary to reach your goals with greater confidence, skillfulness, wisdom and ease.

Why Natural Primary Care?
We all want the best healthcare for ourselves and loved ones. Unfortunately, the current healthcare system is not set up for long-term success — it works reactively instead of stopping problems before they occur. You typically only see a doctor when something is wrong or once a year for a basic snapshot of your health. We have built a better system using natural modalities and medicinals that activate and support the innate healing wisdoms of the body without the side effects of modern Western allopathic medicine.
At Marin Oriental & Integrative Medicine, patients enjoy a concierge level of care. We use traditional, result-based and modern, evidence-based approaches to health with a focus on preventive and proactive medicine. We partner with patients to create personalized plans and practical stratagies to help you lead a truly happy, healthy life.
WHAT OUR PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US:
treats the whole person
"Devatara Holman is my core health practitioner. She treats the whole person. That means the physical, emotional and spiritual aspect of each individual. She practices medicine the way it used to be practiced, when it was recognized that all these areas of the individual need to be addressed when illness is present and when wellness is to be maintained. Since I started seeing her, over twelve years ago now, I have learned so much about how to live a healthy life, how to cultivate wisdom and how to increase happiness in my life – for the benefit of myself and others equally. I now have little need for invasive forms of Western medicine and know how to keep myself healthy. Devatara has helped me and taught me in profound and innumerable ways. Thank you so much!"
Dr. M.H., San Francisco
blessed to have her as my teacher
"As a licensed acupuncturist and seeker of all things that enhance the quality of our lives, Devatara has provided me with the gift of a highly refined Qigong practice, and an understanding of Buddhist medicine and Physio-Cognitive medicine. She combines this material in such a way that you can grasp it conceptually as well as experimentally in order to fully understand and use it right away to help heal yourself and others. I feel blessed to have her as my teacher. I look forward to her courses and teachings, and will always want to deepen my knowledge of her work in order to benefit myself and my patients."
MS. J.L. LAc San Francisco
treatments reduced my pain
"After years of combat in the Middle East, I was really struggling with depression and anxiety. I just couldn’t get the help I needed to be who I wanted to be with my family and in civilian life.
Working with Evan Shepherd Reiff, LAc. really helped me to start getting my life back again! His treatments reduced my pain and I felt so much more stable in my mind. I was amazed at how quickly the acupuncture worked. Now I feel much more normal and more functional. Because of his help, I feel like I am getting body, mind and heart back again."
entire staff is friendly and professional
DJ, Veteran, Sausalito
totally happy and healthy life with her help
"When my cancer had been in remission for five years, I thought I would just have to live with numerous physical problems caused by my treatment. Devatara Holman keeps those things in check with quarterly treatments and has helped me to manage my concerns on my own between visits. I have a totally happy and healthy life with her help! As a culture, we need to integrate the knowledge she has to pass on."

"Devatara’s influence has been life-changing in so many ways! She has been my primary care practitioner for over a decade and has helped me through so many challenges! She helped me to learn how to look at my thinking and that has made all the difference in my life! Not only that, but she helped me to resolve a bone tumor that threatened to not only require surgery, but would also leave a large, lasting scare on my face. Because of Devatara’s help, I am now tumor-free. No surgery was required, just the use of the secret weapons Devatara has shared with me. She has helped me to learn how to be the master of my health and of my life!"

In addition to being a truly lovely person, she is a very wise and skilled teacher."

how to shift and rebalance
- Rob Ryan, Astrologer, Director-Center for Health

This was achieved 100% naturally! This is really GOOD MEDICINE!"

healings helped me profoundly
"I’m a senior therapist, but in the wake of the fires that devastated my area in Northern California, I just couldn’t find my way out of the trauma. Devatara helped me like I never imagined anyone ever could! Her words, her wisdom and her amazingly powerful remote healings helped me profoundly. In just a few treatments, I find myself again standing on high ground and the wisdom lotus has now bloomed from the ashes."

A New Perspective
If you are wanting more contact, more listening, and more discussion with your doctors, you have come to the right place. The doctors at Marin Oriental and Integrative Medicine provide you with extended office visits that allow the time needed to establish a not only the relationship you want with your health provider, but the proper diagnosis and treatment. We utilize the four methods of traditional Chinese medical diagnosis including Inquiring, Listening, Inspection and Palpation. We also utilize the traditional pulse and tongue diagnosis. More than anything else, we see you as an individual with health concerns, not just a walking diagnosis. Our treatments include acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, medical qigong, mindfulness training, dietary regulation, and lifestyle coaching.
In our Integrative medical practice, we incorporate the most advanced technology in bloodwork diagnistics to identify problem areas long before they appear as disease, to treat and to follow your progress. This includes the Functional Medical Analysis of standard bloodwork and specialized lab testing. Imagery and other allopathic testing results are reviewed and included in your diagnostic profile. We also make use of cutting-edge technology in modern Oriental medicine including Ryodoraku, electroacupuncture, CES, far infra-red therapy, and laser stimulation.
