If you are in pain, being it physical or emotional pain. Even cigarette smokers! Direct Mindpower is right for you. I have gone through chronic back pain for years now. I have had physical therapy, taken painkillers (which I don't recommend to anyone) I have tried acupuncture, and chiropractors. Nothing worked, and I was getting frustrated. I had a friend tell me to try pranic healing, which I wasn't very familiar with. Trust me, it works. Not only does the pain go away, but the feeling of having a clear mind and a clean body is what I needed. Not only does Direct Mindpower make you feel comfortable and relaxed, they are affordable and a lot of times have FREE pranic healing clinics different days of the week. I highly recommend Direct Mindpower to everyone! Please check out Direct Mindpower!! They are amazing, and this is the one and only place I go to feel the real me again!!

Zhen Liu explained everything he thought was necessary for the first visit. I appreciated that he wanted me to understand what was behind his decisions to treat me. I have had severe neck pain after over four years of dull pain in the same area. I trust that he will be able to work me through this process

I have lost over 30 pounds as effortlessly as spending time every week getting acupuncture. My friends and family can’t believe it. Thank you so much Kristi! Kristi explained to me that Harter Acupuncture weight loss treatments consisted of a minimum of 10 sessions, but that I would more than likely need 20. Not sure if I’m explaining this right here, but I think it resets the metabolism to work better and digest foods more efficiently. Regardless of that, I have lost over 40 inches in my body and almost 35 pounds as of 16 sessions. This is the only appointment I will never cancel or change. I am not as hungry. I feel like my stress is much less and I handle situations better. Not to be too personal, but I used to have a lot of diarrhea. That is completely gone too! Unbelievable! I’ve had that and poor digestion all my life and I’ve been telling doctors forever that there is something wrong with my metabolism, but they kept saying your TSH levels are fine. Well, something was wrong and now it is right. I can’t say enough about these treatments. Kristi is so nice, but she is straight up about telling you like it is. I came in with a list of complaints and she said many could be due to my being overweight. I was expecting to hear “make a list of your food” or “cut your calories to 1200 per day.” Instead, she said the treatments would work with my body so that I would change over time from the inside out and so I have. She did advise me not to eat so many salads and fruits. I was surprised as I thought this was healthy, but she said that warmer foods and cooked vegetables would be better. She was right. I still eat some salads and fruits of course, but the weight loss is continuing! So happy! I can’t wait to see what changes for me in my next four sessions. Thank you again. Pamela S.

Dr. Lloyd brings something to healing that’s severely lacking in Western medicine—compassion. Having all but given up on traditional medicine, being told I’d have no choice but to live with crippling pain despite being in my early twenties, Dr. Lloyd gave me exactly what I needed—understanding, compassion, and (above all) hope. I am forever indebted to he and his wife Kathy for not only helping me rid my body of an extremely painful illness, but also for their unlimited kindness. They never hesitate to answer a question or to go out of their way to help. Despite their modesty and humbleness, these two people are a gift. With complete sincerity, I highly recommend Dr. Lloyd to anyone who needs relief from pain or illness, but especially to those who feel there is no hope. Dr. Lloyd is extremely knowledgeable in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. He’s also incredibly grounded, intelligent, considerate, and has an excellent bedside manner. I simply can’t speak highly enough of this man! He is truly a blessing to anyone in need of healing! I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone in the area!

    I was a weekly patient of Paul's over the course of several months, during which time he helped me tremendously with significant issues of insomnia, anxiety and enduring grief after the death of my beloved dog. Over the course of Paul's treatment using acupuncture and herbs, I was able to stop taking an anti-anxiety medication which I had been dependent upon for sleep and daily function for more than two years. In addition, I was able to release significant muscle tension through receiving Paul's Chinese cupping treatments. Paul's compassion and attentiveness are outstanding. Not only is he a skilled practitioner who clearly explains his technique and his treatment plan, he also always made me feel thoroughly taken care of as a patient and answered any questions that arose for me. Paul's clinic is a beautiful healing sanctuary; the treatment rooms are aesthetically pleasing and his massage tables are extremely comfortable. Unfortunately, I am no longer living close enough to Paul's clinic to receive treatments with him, but if I were, I would definitely be continuing as his patient.

    I first came to Dawn 7 months ago to balance out my hormones. I've been on hormone therapy and medications to balance me out and it wasn't working for me. I had horrible acne, missed periods, and constant low energy. I finally had it and decided to go a more natural approach. I quit all my hormone therapy and medications and started doing acupuncture with Dawn once a week. She got me on some Chinese herbs as well to help balance me out and what my body needed! Within 2 months I finally started my period and have been regular since! I no longer have acne and my energy levels feel amazing. She has changed my life so much. I feel more confident in myself and more at balance.

    Ron reached out to me in less than 2hrs and made an exception to receive my mom outside his business hours due to my mom’s recent condition with Bell’s Palsy. It was her first experience with acupuncture and felt relief right away. Definitely will be coming back for more treatments. Works on a sliding scale. Highly recommend.

      I offer acupuncture house calls for those who are too busy or unable to drive to a clinic, as well as for high-profile clients.


      We have 15 years experience in chiropractic decompression, acupuncture, and complementary massage with each patient visit (some restrictions apply). Our patients enjoy our individualized treatment rooms for their privacy. We work with patients who are ready to heal and correct their problem. Some have tried medicine, physical therapy and other chiropractic, with little or no results. We promise to re-evaluate to ensure continuous progress throughout your care.


      I do acupuncture, acupressure, massage, reiki, and shamanic healing. People love my work, for I work with the cause, and not the symptoms. I was trained in China, and I have my masters in auricular medicine.


      We offer a low cost acupuncture clinic with convenient appointment times, including evenings and Saturdays. Master's degree offered in acupuncture and oriental medicine. We have flexible schedules to accommodate the busy lives of our students. Financial aid is available as well. Convenient North Central Phoenix location.


      Need chiropractic or acupuncture treatment near the Phoenix metro area? Brown Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Tempe, Arizona treats patients from Scottsdale to Mesa for back pain, headaches, fertility, and more.


      Most doctors have a desire to help others. Some do not develop the proper skills. Leadership is key to success in any doctor patient relationship, the doctor must practice what they preach, and they must preach healthy balanced living as a foundation to true health. Sure, some patients just want an antibiotic to treat their sinus infection. A good doctor will diagnose and treat according to the patients desire. A great doctor will also teach the patient how to avoid the sinus infection. The best doctors will attempt to instigate a fundamental shift within patients in a direction towards compassionate and conscious living, this is my primary objective.


      Services include: *Chiropractic care *Acupuncture *Functional movement screens *Nutritional counseling *Body composition testing *Physiotherapy


      I am finishing my naturopathic doctor's license, and I have a background in massage, acupuncture, chiropractic techniques, energy healing, theta healing, tapping techniques, and esthetics. I have helped many people heal their physical, mental, and emotional pain by looking at core issues and releasing them through different modalities. I also make aging skin look fabulous!


      We offer acupuncture and Asian medicine, gua sha, cupping, moxibustion and tui-na services. We specialize in pain management, weight loss, stress and anxiety, and fertility.

      How does acupuncture work?

      Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

      What are the benefits of acupuncture?

      There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

      What is an acupuncture treatment?

      An acupuncture treatment is a type of integrative health care session that uses needles (and sometimes heat and/or electrical stimulation) to stimulate the body’s nervous system to begin a healing process. Long practiced in traditional Chinese medicine and other Eastern cultures, acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance and use as a complementary and integrative part of healing in Western medicine. During an acupuncture treatment, the patient lies in a relaxed position on a table that is very similar to a massage table. The acupuncturist, having done a diagnosis of health concerns and determined a course of treatment, will insert thin stainless steel needles into the prescribed acupuncture points. These points are determined by the patient’s health needs. The practitioner may gently manipulate the needles to trigger a healing response in the body. Typically there is no pain associated with the treatment. A session may use anywhere from 6-30 needles or more, depending on what illness is being treated. The needles can remain in place for 5-30 minutes, with 15 minutes being a common time. Acupuncture treatments are often prescribed in a series, based on patient need.

      How often do you need to get acupuncture?

      How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
