My first time with acupuncture and cupping. Completely relieved shoulder pain. I highly recommend this over medication any day.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     A.C.


I don't usually take the time to write reviews, but Eileen, the acupuncturist, is so deserving of recognition I feel compelled to in this case. I seriously don't know what I ever did without her. I've been seeing her for weekly 30-minute acupuncture sessions for about 6 months now. I was initially just kind of curious (but not overly optimistic) about acupuncture and its ability to alleviate my severe PMS symptoms and make my cycles shorter and more regular. When I first came to Eileen, I was also dealing with chronic fatigue, feeling cold all the time, unexplained infertility and a moderately high level of stress and general anxiety. My husband and I still haven't conceived, but Eileen's treatments have had a very observable affect on my cycles (the first time I saw her, I had just had a 36 day cycle. Each month after I started treatments, my cycles got progressively shorter, until reaching a nice, predictable 26-day pattern.) My periods are much less painful, my energy is higher, and my hands and feet aren't icy cold all the time anymore. Eileen has a very calming presence about her, and is very easy to talk to. She is extremely intuitive and compassionate and sincerely cares about helping me in any way that she can. She talks to me about how I've been feeling before each appointment, and customizes each treatment accordingly. Yesterday my stress level was quite high when I got there, and I had some anxiety that prevented me from being able to stay asleep the night before, so she focused on the best points to relieve stress and I walked out of there a new person. I was in a zen-like state for the rest of the day after my appointment, and I'm still feeling very calm. I've also come in after nursing a headache for 36 hours, and left without any pain whatsoever 45 minutes later. I just can't say enough good things about Eileen or how grateful I am to have found her!                                                                                                                                                                                                                 L.B.

I first had a treatment from Eileen about two years ago. My hair after menopause became very thin and I started to lose a lot of hair. Thanks to Eileen's treatment my hair stopped falling out and today my hair grows back and looks very healthy. Eileen has also helped me with pain in my knees, hip and neck due to my arthritis. Most recently she has been helping me with weight loss. Eileen has been SO helpful in not only treating me for stress but also she has given me tools that are helping me to cope with it. I can't say enough how grateful I am for what she has done for me. So many times I arrived with so much stress and Eileen, with so much patience, listens to me and gives me treatment until I feel calm. She really cares for her patients. I feel blessed to be in her care.                                                                                                                                                           Maria S.
