Personal Therapeutics

Medical Acupuncture

Baxter Bell, MD began his healing work as a Family Physician in 1989, followed by more than 11 years of full time private practice in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. 

Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2000, his work has evolved to incorporate his vision of a more holistic style of healing. He currently maintains a part-time Complementary Medical practice in Oakland, where he offers consultations and medical acupuncture.

Yoga practices are therapeutically integrated into treatment plans for many of his acupuncture patients.

Private Yoga Therapy

Baxter is now available for private yoga sessions either via zoom or in person.


According to the Yoga Tradition, the ideal yoga practice should be designed by a teacher for the individual student. While most of us experience yoga in the classroom setting, private yoga instruction is the best way to develop a personal practice for your specific needs.

During a typical one-hour session, Baxter will design a customized sequence that addresses your personal goals that can be taken home and used for your home practice. In follow up sessions Baxter will assess how the practice is meeting your goals, and adjust it accordingly.


These sessions can address a wide variety of health concerns and injuries, as well as serve to start or deepen your yoga practice.
