Oriental Medicine

Oriental Medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western Medicine. The ancient Chinese recognized a vital energy behind all life forms and life processes. They called this energy qi (pronounced Chee).

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a medical technique of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into particular points on the body, with the aim of restoring health and wellbeing. Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China and is most commonly associated with TCM. TCM comprises a range of traditional medical practices that developed over several thousand years including theories, diagnosis and treatments such as herbal medicine, acupuncture and massage. TCM is a form of so-called Oriental Medicine which includes other traditional East Asian medical systems such as traditional Japanese and Korean Medicine.

TCM theory asserts that processes of the human body are interrelated and in constant interaction with the environment. Signs of disharmony help the TCM practitioner understand, treat and prevent illness and disease.

Japanese Acupuncture

Acupuncture came to Japan 1,300 years ago from China through Korea, and has been refined to become a whole independent system of practice. Differing from Chinese acupuncture, Japanese acupuncturists use thin, fine needles with insertion tubes that are very gentle and relatively painless. While Chinese acupuncturists would ask their patients whether or not they felt the strong needling sensation which is often unbearable to American patients, Japanese acupuncturists cause minor pain to the patient as the doctor would “feel” the qi themselves.

Japanese acupuncture is also different from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture in point selection. While TCM acupuncture chooses treatment points by herbal diagnosis (also called “herbalized acupuncture” by Bob Flaws). Japanese acupuncture chooses points purely by classical energetic principles of yin, yang and five elements.


The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine’s ability to treat over 43 common disorders including Gastrointestinal Disorders, Urogenital Disorders, Gynecological Disorders, Respiratory Disorders, Disorders of the Bones, Muscles, Joints and Nervous System, Circulatory Disorders, Emotional and Psychological Disorders, Addictions, Eye-Ear-Nose and Throat Disorders as well as supportive therapy for other chronic and painful disorders.

Acupuncture for infants and children

Needleless treatment is primarily used for young children. Studies have shown that it is useful for treating jaundice in newborns. Infants and babies can also be successfully treated for colic, earache, ADHD, temper tantrums, crying at night, bedwetting, asthma, allergies, eczema and skin rashes.

Consult with Ilene Wolf MFT at Bids for Connection Therapy, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, WORKING in San Francisco and Marin FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS, SPECIALIZING IN couples counseling and individual counseling.

AN EXPERT in Conflict Resolution, Ilene LEADS Empathy CIRCLES AND forgiveness workshops THROUGH THE USE OF COGNITIVE THERAPY (CBT) AND drama therapy .

Have you locked yourself into an unloving relationship?

Addressing all relationships: partners, family and work. Safe. Confidential.

A BID FOR CONNECTION is an attempt to create a CONNECTION between two people to keep the relationship going forward.

Remedy: Learn your unique attachment style (PREOCCUPIED, AVOIDANT, SECURE); how does the lack of trust and past hurt determine your interactive style.

Reclaiming: Give yourself a tremendous amount of SELF-empathy and compassion within the context of a caring therapist. Reclaiming the hurt, lost and disowned parts of the self.


Recovery: Going back for the lost parts of ourselves, integrating the hurt, metabolizing the grief.

Replenishment: Finding the dreams behind the conflict. To understand and experience what compassion for the self and others feels like.

Resources: Discover the resources and gifts in our hidden emotions. What would it mean to get past the anger, anxiety and depression and be the beneficiary of your own energy?

Building: Experience love as a feeling -- otherwise AS a commodity we CAN never  have enough of IT.

WE LEARN HOW TO trust, stemming from our early childhood experiences, blueprints and impressions that carry over in our day to day experiences.  

Discover THE TOOLS OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION SO YOU CAN trust yourself and your partner MORE:

  1. The Universal laws of love based on nonviolent communication
  2. The essential ingredient of love is the power behind vulnerability
  3. Finding the confidence to stand up to everyday conflict in relationships at the work place and home
  4. The Art of showing and receiving empathy

We all have felt and feared our vulnerability, yet this essential ingredient is what truly connects us. This therapy will show you how to have a RELATIONSHIP THAT WORKS.

By Having The Courage --Things CAN AND Do Get Better!

PEOPLE ASK: Why can’t I seem to feel better? The answer goes back to our beliefs about people, places and things.

Therapy works when it involves a trusting relationship with a therapist who gives you the exact tools to get out of the predicament you are in. While empathy is one key element of therapy, it is not enough alone to single-handedly change your behavior.

If your childhood was filled with uncertainty, disregard, neglect or violence, chances are some of your problems in relationships may stem from wanting to keep people at a distance to determine whether or not people or situations are safe.

Finding the Capacity to Be Happy and Experience Contentment

The source of anxiety and depression is often unexpressed feelings. The impossible demand that we be "nice" at the expense of ourselves -- leaving us at the risk of anyone truly knowing who we are.

Have you locked yourself into an unloving relationship?
Master the ability to forgive yourself and others.

A safe confidential space where you can work through your feelings of loss, hurt and grief, whether THE LOSS IS recent, or long ago.

The purpose of the Practicing The Art of Forgiveness Group is to provide a safe and compassionate space to share, connect, and learn from others who have had a similar experience. With tools and insight provided by a supportive therapist, group members will have the chance to share experiences, explore feelings and move beyond hurt, and repair relationships through the use of metta (loving kindness) meditation and modern therapeutic tools -- including The Five Secrets. We do deep experiential work in these sessions, so this group is not for everyone.

Practicing The Art of Forgiveness Group meets the first Thursday of the month in San Rafael, CA. Individual session required to ensure that this group meets your individual goals.

Employees to company leadership

These conflicts carry the added urgency of adverse impact on the schedule for the entire project if not addressed and resolved within a day or two.


I work with you, the architect, to create a harmonious green construction project with your client. Working together, I give you reliable, authoritative input that is relevant to your current design, resulting in a “menu” of green features to present to your client.

After construction I offer a specialized, unique Owner’s Manual which details for the client the location, use, and emergency shut-off for the green features and regular features such as power and gas.

The savings to your client will more than cover my costs.
