Dr. Dennis Kinnane has been a student and practitioner of the healing arts for over 40 years. After graduating from Purdue University in 1969 with a 5-year Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy, he passed the Indiana boards and was licensed as a pharmacist. He practiced as a retail pharmacist in Indiana until 1974.
In 1974 Dr. Kinnane passed the California board exam and moved to Los Angeles where he continued his pharmacy career, gaining experience in both retail and hospital settings. In 1984, feeling drawn to alternative medicine, Dr. Kinnane returned to school full time to study Oriental medicine at SAMRA University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles.
Dr. Kinnane graduated in 1987 with a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Herbology and then continued on to earn a Doctor’s Degree in Oriental Medicine in 1988 from SAMRA University. Dr. Kinnane also passed the Acupuncture Board exam that same year and became a Licensed Acupuncturist.
As well as acupuncture and both Western and Oriental herbal medicine, Dr. Kinnane has made in-depth studies of yoga, Chinese qi gong, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, reiki and massage therapy. He has had three initiations into Huna, the ancient Polynesian healing practice, and is also a master of metaphysics.
Dr. Kinnane has been engaged in the practice of Oriental Medicine in Torrance, California since April of 1989. During the ensuing 20+ years Dr. Kinnane has treated many patients seeking either an alternative to Western medicine or who have come in their last hope of relief, having exhausted all Western methods for treating a chronic condition.

My Mission is To Help You:

Dr. Kinnane is an outstanding acupuncturist, and Chinese Herbalist. Highly knowledgable with over 40 years of holistic healing excellence, Dr. Kinnane has been my go-to healing practitioner after a terrible bout of Nora Virus, and for healing up my GI tract, nervous system, and dealing with seasonal allergies.
Dennis is the ONLY doctor I would ever consider for purchasing Chinese Herbal Medicine. His in office herbal pharmacy is in my opinion the best in Southern California, and he only uses the choices natural herbs. His pricing is fair, and I always feel relieved that I'm never ever waiting more than a day or two when I'm ill for prescriptions I need. Other practitioners in the vicinity are good acupuncturists but do not have even half the knowledge and holistic pharmacy as Dennis. In my opinion Dr. Dennis is the best Chinese Medicine Herbalist in California because he also was a pharmacist for many years. He understands and helps his patients leave the toxic world of Western pharmaceutical for herbal medicinal. For that I'm forever grateful. I have not taken a Western pharmaceutical in many years.
Dennis is a caring doctor and his facility is comfortable and enhancing to the healing process. I'm honored to call Dennis my my doctor and close friend for nearly five years now.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Dr. Dennis Kinnane for using his skills and knowledge in the areas of acupuncture and herbal medicine to help me through years of treatment for metastasized breast cancer. I know that my reactions to the powerful but toxic medications I was taking through the traditional western medicine were greatly reduced and I was able to manage the experiences and continue working because of the treatments I received from Dr. Kinnane.
We have worked at combating fatigue, nausea, pain, infections, liver metastasis, pleural effusion and now kidney issues. The acupuncture and the herbs have been used along with the western drugs and have not seemed to hamper the effectiveness. In fact some of the western drugs have worked surprisingly well, as has my recovery from various side effects according to the doctor in charge of my cancer treatments.
I truly believe the combination of Chinese medicine and Western medicine has helped me through my experience living with and combating breast cancer and I recommend any woman in the same situation try both treatments!

As a longtime proponent of alternative medical practices…turning to Chinese medicine to deal with the issue of menopause was natural. Acupuncture and herbal treatments dealt completely with the insomnia, night sweats, hot flashes, emotional swings and digestive problems that are some of the more prominent symptoms of the transition. Dr. Kinnane has a rare perspective as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine in that his background also includes years of training and experience with Western medical practices and pharmacology.

Dr. Dennis Kinnane has been attentive to my medical situation for 5 years. He has provided helpful advice regarding nutrition and physical exercise; encouraged use of herbal supplements and ointments specific to problems I have experienced (asthma, bronchitis, anemia, and neurological pain), and given acupuncture treatments that wonderfully heal me!
Maggi Coble: Torrance
I have been a patient of Dr. Dennis Kinnane for almost 15 years. Dr. Dennis made the difference between living a life of constant severe neck, shoulder and arm pain from a fall that resulted in a herniated cervical disc and living a normal live without pain. After months of pain medications, physical therapy, muscle relaxants and advice from “specialists” that surgery was my only alternative, Dr. Kinnane gave me hope that surgery was not the only answer and provided the treatment, support and compassion that resulted in my cure. I never had surgery and today I am pain free. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kinnane because he came through with a positive solution when traditional doctors saw me living a life of pain and limitation.
Leyla Ali: Long Beach
I used to go to a horrible medical doctor first and then become frustrated with the prescription medications that don't work. Now I just come straight here. I got treated for dizziness in the past, and now Dr. Kinnane has helped me with my hormone levels. The herbs that I take feel so much safer than the pharmaceutical pills, and they work just as well. Update: I have been getting acupuncture from Dennis for years - it is great because Dennis was a pharmacist before and understands Eastern and Western Medicine. He has helped me with getting better sleep, pain, hormonal imbalances, and allergies. Would definitely recommend!
