Dr. Cho is polite and knows his profession well. He explained to me what he was going to do before he did it. He then explained each needle point as to the relation of my sciatica pain. I am feeling FANTASTIC as a result of his acupuncture treatment. I am going to recommend him to all my friends.

I have been extremely happy with the acupuncture treatments I have received from Westside Acupuncture & Wellness Center. I have been going for more than 3 years, and numerous conditions have gone away, including restless leg, digestion issues, sinus problems, and a miraculous improvement to my balance (when walking, due to a stroke years ago). I highly recommend Ricardo Miranda, who integrates Chinese medicine/acupuncture to treat a variety of conditions. Further, he researches medical studies and is ever growing his knowledge in all wellness arenas. He also does fertility treatments for younger women to become pregnant, with great success for people I know!

5 Stars!!!! I was referred to Gina by a friend. She is amazing to say the least. I'm a 7yr cancer survivor that has undergone chemo and major surgeries with residual pain and scarring. I also raced cars for 11+ years and had a couple major wrecks that still impact my back and neck. It would be an understatement to say my body has seen it's share of abuse. Over the last six months, my medical history has compounded with the stress of a broken engagement, move and launching of a new business. I've had an issue since March with tingling and electric sensations in my left hand. I've been to two docs and had an MRI to confirm it wasn't MS. Acupuncture has helped some - but Gina was the first person to give me MAJOR relief. Her unique process and her intuition allowed her to identify right away that my nervous system was in disarray. Postural, skeleton and muscle tension was affecting my alignment and energy flow. After performing a series of judo moves I was blown away at how much better I felt. My posture was improved, my hand feels better. But the most interesting thing is the sense of "opening" and flow. The energy in body is moving more as it should which has had countless positive effects – more energy, less stress, clearer thinking. It's not if, but a matter of when I see her next. I plan on setting up a monthly session with her and feel that we're lucky to have her here from NY! P.S. I've been to a number of Reiki, massage, structural integration folks over the years. She is amongst the best.. You can't go wrong with Gina.

Roosbeh is a superb acupuncturist and I've been to quite a few. As an aside, it may be worth mentioning that his exotic name notwithstanding, Roosbeh is Californian whose first language is English. More to the point, he listens to intently and really looks at the whole picture. It's very easy to communicate with him. He's a genuine holistic practitioner. I went to him for chronic headaches stemming from TMJ (jaw joint pain). I'd tried everything and was taking anti-inflammatories all the time. In less than a month, the pain is pretty much gone and the treatment has even made a difference in my tinnitis, which as anyone who has it knows is a very difficult problem to treat. He's also very deft with the pins -- I rarely feel them go in. I would recommend Full Lotus to anyone, whether you have a specific problem or are just suffering from the blahs.

I've had Tara treat me several times for various reasons - sick with the flu, extreme muscle pain/ soreness, tweaked neck, sciatica pain, etc. She has used both acupuncture and cupping. My body responds extremely well to cupping and in times where I have had severe back or neck pain cupping along with an electric stem via acupuncture had me feeling like an improved person after coming off the table. Tara is very knowledgeable and passionate and will even educate you along the way as her goal is for you to achieve optimal health by gaining a proper balance in life. She has two great locations and will even do house calls. I highly recommend her!

Dr. Kobina is a caring, knowledgeable acupuncturist & healer... and highly aware of nutrition, a.k.a. "food is medicine," which is a major plus 2 hiring him. On his first visit he gave a thorough review of acupuncture and how it may help my case. My first-ever acupuncture treatment was great. I decided to hire Dr. K for ongoing treatment since I was impressed by his professional demeanor. His treatment goals will be on a one dimensional discipline of acupuncture, I highly recommend his services. —Eduardo

Beth is amazing. I'm feeling better each time, she listens and offers exceptional advice, never rushes, is kind and caring, I'm so glad I found her! My back is feeling much better, between the acupuncture, the stretches she's having me do and the addition of a Pilates class to my regular exercise routines, I'm feeling stronger. I can roll over in my sleep at night and stay sleeping where as before the pain in my lower back would wake me up all night long. She also addresses the emotional issues that I've been struggling with so I'm feeling more at peace on that front too. It's an overall wellness approach that addresses physical and mental and I could not be happier with her!

Having a childhood aversion to getting shots I was deeply afraid of acupuncture due to the needles. However, when I went to see Stacy her demeanor was so wonderful and calming that she immediately put me at ease, and once she showed me how thin and tiny the needles were I instantly felt more comfortable. Her bedside manner is wonderful and she has such a gentle touch with the needles that I barely felt a thing. Now I've been treated by her repeatedly with needles, cupping, and herbs and my health is infinitely better for it. I highly recommend Mend Family Acupuncture, and Healthcare and in this day of over-medication, believe it is a great place to maintain lasting health.

When someone loves what they do it is easy to see. Melani genuinely loves being an acupuncturist and helping people. Constantly striving to learn more helps her practice evolve. She treats patients as family and is one of the kindest and most genuine people I have ever met.

Marion is great at what she does. She really listens to me and is very effective in giving the right treatment. She is very gentle, caring and a great person to interact with. She has a range of tools that she is proficient in (electro-acupuncture, cupping, physical therapy, herbal medicine, nutrition and detox, moxibustion, Tuina, and meditation). She is able to suggest an unique blend of these methods to arrive at a holistic solution to alleviate pain and foster well-being. I went to her with my back pain that I sustained from too much sitting at my work desk and she was able to pin-point the issue and alleviate my suffering. I would highly recommend her expertise to anyone in pain.

    I've been coming to Green Jade Acu for years now. They have helped me with back pain, fatigue, insomnia, a digestive disorder and quite a few other health issues. I trust them because they take excellent care of me and many of my friends. The staff is kind, professional and make their patients top priority. The clinic has a migraine program that's phenomenal. I recommend Green Jade to everyone.

    Hank is an excellent acupuncturist. I had a very detailed intake interview. What four doctors and two naturopathic healers couldn't diagnose, he was able to. I know it takes months to see improvement, but after just one cupping and acupuncture session, I noticed an increase in my energy levels as well as my focus and concentration. I had been feeling sluggish and sick since 2010. This is the first time I felt like I could go on throughout the day without needing a nap or some coffee. It also is family friendly --- they didn't mind my little son playing with his toys quietly in the waiting room. Very clean office, very professional atmosphere. Five stars!

    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 Cancer.gov. 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.
