Hide Minami, L.Ac

Hide (pronounced "Hee-day") was born into one of the oldest acupunctture families in Japan. His ancestors studied under a grand master of acupuncture 300 years ago. Hide's family's clinic name in Japan bears the name Akakabe (Red Wall), as a tribute to the grand master (whose clinic had red walls.) Until 150 years ago, acupuncture, moxibustion and herbology were the main medical therapies used in Japan.

Hide grew up watching and helping his mother in her acupuncture clinic as she treated thousands of people with a wide range of conditions. Here he experienced firsthand the powerful benefits of Oriental Medicine. The deep level of respect and appreciation the patients displayed for his mother's skills, and her ability to help people heal, made a profound impact on Hide - it was a natural choice for him to attend acupuncture college after high school.

Hide attended Osaka Acupuncture College in Japan, becoming a 6th generation acupuncturist. He later came to the United States, where he attended the San Francisco College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He is licensed in the U.S., as well as in Japan. Hide opened the first Holistic Health Center clinic in 1989. Hide specializes in energy balancing to promote the body's own healing energy. He enjoys meeting new people and educating them about the benefits of Traditional Oriental Medicine. Hide is an avid surfer who restores his own healing energy in the ocean waves. Hide's karate practice develops his strength and focus. He holds a 5th degree black belt, and teaches karate in San Mateo. Hide speaks English and Japanese.
