I saw Brett for almost a year for acupuncture. This certainly relieved my arthritis pain. But alongside the needles was a deep caring, a nonjudging attitude, and a skill at pushing me just the right amount toward change. With an intact sense of humor.

I look forward to acupuncture every week. Jen is amazing! She's very knowledgable, gentle, understanding, and extremely professional. Acupuncture is a regular part of my health regiment now. The benefits of acupuncture and reiki are numerous and I could write a novel about how it's improved my life physically and emotionally but I only have so much space here. If you are considering acupuncture with jen, do it!! Well worth it.

I received acupuncture several times as a follow-up for a neck and back injury. Marisa was very attentive to both my physical and emotional needs. She took her time, thoroughly explained herself and answered all my questions. Marisa was very gentle in her technique which made the experience very relaxing and enjoyable. She used a variety of different approaches in her healing treatments, all which I feel were very beneficial to my healing process. I definitely recommend Andersen Acupuncture!

After suffering too long with pain, headaches and sleep deprivation, I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The chiropractor I was seeing at the time suggested I see an acupuncturist and introduced me to Andrea Henkels. I was hesitant, but desperate for relieve. Andrea immediately won my confidence with her caring and professional manner. Andrea is knowledgeable in all areas of healing including acupuncture, herbal supplements and massage. She is a kind, gentle, caring spirit. I left my first appointment feeling relaxed, peaceful and centered. I have continued to see Andrea to help me deal with my fibromyalgia and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an alternative to Western medicine.

Christine was very professional and is a talented healer! I've tried acupuncture, other energy healers and a variety of holistic practitioners but what Christine does is truly unique. She intuitively knows how to help release stuck emotions and talks you through it so that you feel supported and safe. I left feeling lighter and happier than I had in a while. Will definitely go back!

I'll never forget my first visit to Michelle. I had fractured my foot and my ankle swelling had not gone away. My Orthopedic guy said it would take 3 - 6 mos. I'd never been to an acupuncturist before. Michelle had come highly recommended so I thought I'd "risk" it! After 2 visits, my ankle was back....looked like it should with NO DISCOMFORT! I was SOLD on her healing powers. No matter my complaint, Michelle treated me and I always felt SOOOOOO good after a session. We've moved. I can't tell you how much I miss Michelle and HER WAY!!! When you find someone truly special, NOT HAVING THEIR EXPERIENCE and HEALING TOUCH is upsetting to say the least!! If you're reading this...and are thinking about acupuncture, don't look any futher....call Michelle...your "issue" and peace of mind will soon improve. Alex Read

    Let me start by saying that I don’t like needles at all. I was dealing with depression and anxiety and I was at my wits end. I began to have anxiety attacks and my moods were beginning to affect my home and my social life. My PCP prescribed me an anti-depressant/anti-anxiety medication that I didn’t feel comfortable taking just yet. My sister suggested that I try acupuncture, but like any Dr, I’d have to find a good one. After doing a little research, I found EZ Acupuncture and saw the good reviews. I made an appt right away. I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Han. I told him what was going on and he was confident that he could help me and boy did he! I am so glad I went. Also, I told him that I had some shoulder pain (I think that I pinched a nerve) and some lower back pain and he helped me with those issues as well. I felt no pain in either the day after treatment. I don’t even mind the needles because the effects from acupuncture are so addictive that I want to keep on going back (not to mention that Dr. Han gently administers them). I truly feel like a new person. I am at ease, relaxed and I don’t feel the symptoms of depression anymore. I am not one to write reviews, but Dr. Han and the staff of EZ Acupuncture are wonderful people.

    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.
