We had an excellent acupuncture session with Alex. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!Jun 24, 2019Verified
I went to see Alex for acupuncture for my chronic migraines and I loved it! She is very friendly and easy to talk to which was great because I had a million questions. I could barely feel the needles go in and I fell asleep after 5 minutes of laying on the table. After the treatment I felt so relaxed and my headache had completely gone away. I plan to keep coming to her to start an herbal formula that will hopefully get these migraines under control. Thank you for a great experience! I look forward to more treatments in the future.May 15, 2015Verified
I highly recommend going to Alex! She knows what she is talking about, she has experience, her treatments are effective and it has been totally pain free. I'm a very physically active person and this year my knees have been giving me hell. I've tried massages and going to see a chiropractor but both did not help. After dealing with serious shooting pains in my knees and legs, I decided to get some acupuncture as recommended to me by a friend. I made an appointment to see Alex at her office which was conveniently down the street from my apartment. She was very sweet and made me feel comfortable through the whole visit. She looked over my knee, gave me tips on how to strengthen the muscles around it and ways to stretch both legs to relieve tightness. The acupuncture was painless and I felt extremely relaxed after the treatments. After two treatments. my knee pain has almost gone away completely. I'm amazed at how quickly the treatments worked, I should have done it sooner! You MUST go see Alex for your aches and pains, she works wonders :)Oct 12, 2016Verified
Alex is an amazing acupuncturist and I couldn't recommend her highly enough. As a programmer, I spend a lot of time on the computer stressed out and hunching my shoulders. As a result I was experiencing serious pain in my neck, shoulders and lower back. It was starting to affect my sleep and I knew I had to do something about it. I had a few massages but the relief didn't last so my friend suggested that I try out acupuncture. Luckily Alex was able to come to my house in a pinch and give me an incredible treatment. She is very gentle and intuitive, I felt like she knew exactly where my pain was coming from. She also gave me a little bit of cupping which I LOVED. At first I only felt slight relief but after a good nights sleep I woke up feeling practically pain free. I'd say only about 10% is left now. I am definitely going back to her to finish the job and I am now fully convinced that acupuncture does wonders. Thank you so much Alex!!Apr 1, 2015Verified
