About Bamboo Field Acupuncture & Herb

Acupuncture in South Austin

Bamboo Field Acupuncture & Herb was named after the characteristics of bamboo – resilient, fast spreading and therapeutic. Many parts of bamboo are actually a Chinese herb. “Bamboo Field” is also the meaning of the practitioner/owner, Megumi Uppena’s Japanese maiden name.

The logo consists of a bamboo and shoji screen against a spotlight.

The bamboo represents Chinese herbs. The crisscrossed screen represents meridians Bamboo Field Acupuncture Logo(energy pathway) where acupuncture points lie.

The spotlight represents “the oneness”. In Chinese medicine, the yin aspect of herb and yang aspect of acupuncture are opposite, yet complimentary and both kinds of treatment make the harmony of Traditional Chinese medicine. The logo was designed by Megumi.
