How We Can Help

Your happier, healthier self awaits at White Raven Acupuncture!


Brian Downum, a distinguished acupuncturist, co-founded White Raven Acupuncture in the beautiful South Cedros Design District of Solana Beach in the summer of 2009. His journey in acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine began in 2007 when he graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, and he has been diligently serving the San Diego community for over 15 years.

Brian boasts an unparalleled expertise in Orthopedic Acupuncture, a specialized approach that merges Western knowledge and Eastern tools to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disorders. 

This unique blend involves modalities such as dry needling, myofascial release, antagonistic stretching, and corrective exercises. The result? Patients experience relief from conditions in a way that no other orthopedic approach can offer.

His commitment to holistic health doesn’t end there. For the better part of two decades, Brian has been working hand in hand with Dr. Wendy Sellens, the leading Breast Thermologist in America. Together, they utilize thermographic findings to help patients reduce their risks of breast cancer occurrence or re-occurrence.

As he celebrates his 14th year at his Solana Beach location, Brian continues to establish himself as a leading acupuncturist in the area. 

His relentless dedication, combined with his profound expertise in Orthopedic Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, has made him a beacon of health and wellness in the heart of Solana Beach, CA.

Brian is knowledgeable, intuitive, skilled and kind. I started seeing him several years ago after a bad car accident injured my neck and he has helped my recovery tremendously. Since then I've seen him for several other issues. I have referred several people to him and he has helped them as well. He is able to quickly assess and tell you what is wrong and how to fix it. He's very passionate about helping people get better.

Anyone who has suffered from plantar fasciitis knows it is painful and sensitive. Brian made recommendations for my exercise routine and told me that 1-3 treatments of acupuncture should heal the condition. It worked! The pain subsided over the course of 2 weeks and no further treatments were needed. I don't write many reviews but I hope this helps others.

What a great acupuncture experience. Brian was prompt to respond and setup an appointment with me. When I got there he asked and listened to my concerns. After the treatment my shoulder felt much better! Came in for a second treatment, glad I did Brian knows his stuff. Saved me a trip to the physical therapist.

Brian at White Raven is an excellent acupuncturist and healer. I have seen him intermittently over many years and most recently for an extended period as he helped me through an intense period of pain from an injury. Brian is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and most of all always effective. He is highly skilled and gives clear instructions on appropriate exercises to practice between appointments. I could go on but suffice to say that Brian has worked wonders with me, my kids and every one of the many people I have referred to him over the years.
