2024 Jonah Headshot

Our pain coaching program is led by San Francisco Acupuncture Group cofounder and clinical director Jonah Hershowitz, who has 25+ years of clinical experience of getting people out of pain and back into their activities and lives. By conducting consultations remotely, Jonah is able to offer personalized and compassionate care to patients located anywhere in the world.

Specializing in persistent musculoskeletal pain, Jonah draws on multiple disciplines including orthopedic and sports medicine, pain science, neurobiology, muscle and fascia anatomy, behavioral and motivational psychology, the science of movement and exercise physiology.

“Jonah is one of the most genuine, patient and thoughtful people I have ever met. I was impressed that Jonah spent so much time just listening to my background — it’s an amazing feeling when a doctor actually takes the time to listen & seems genuinely committed to helping you improve. Jonah confidently stated that he thought he could help and laid out a clear treatment plan.”

-Andrew J., Brooklyn, NY
Why Choose Pain Coaching?

Remote consultations provide a unique and personalized experience, offering expert guidance to help you navigate the vast array of therapeutic options available for pain management. Traditional healthcare providers such as doctors, acupuncturists, and physical therapists are invaluable for delivering direct care and addressing immediate concerns, but their time constraints and designated roles often limit their ability to fully explain the underlying causes of pain, the treatments and self-care techniques available, or provide the ongoing support needed for lasting relief.

By choosing an online pain coach, you gain access to a dedicated specialist whose primary focus is to empower you with knowledge, tailored recommendations, and ongoing guidance. Our remote consultations offer the following benefits:

  1. In-depth Exploration: Fully examine the root causes of your pain and receive comprehensive explanations about your condition, treatment options, and self-care techniques.
  2. Tailored Recommendations: Benefit from a personalized plan that combines various therapeutic approaches, designed specifically to address your unique pain management needs.
  3. Empowerment Through Education: With remote consultations, you’ll learn about the underlying mechanisms of ongoing pain, how your body and brain can change as a result, and how pain patterns can be “unlearned,” equipping you with the tools to take control of your own healing.
  4. Ongoing Support: Experience the convenience and reassurance of continuous guidance and “hand-holding” through the healing process, ensuring you stay on track towards a pain-free life.
  5. Flexibility and Convenience: Online consultations offer the advantage of accessibility, regardless of your location, making it easy for you to fit expert guidance into your busy schedule.
  6. Cost-Effectiveness: By focusing on education and personalized guidance, remote consultations can help you avoid unnecessary treatments and save money in the long run.

“Jonah is an excellent healer. His knowledge of the body and medicine us remarkable and he connects with you and what you need. He is a gentle yet professional man and provides excellent service and satisfaction.”

-Jason Z., San Francisco

I found him when I began suffering from chronic headaches a few months ago and felt immediately that I was in good hands. Jonah has an amazingly calm and genuine way about him and I trusted him implicitly within the first few minutes of meeting him. […] My headaches have diminished almost completely.
