    I hurt my upper shoulders working out and tried acupuncture treatment for the first time. After 2 sessions I could actually move my neck and after a week all pain was gone. I was very pleased with the treatment and Dr. Zasimova's professionalism. Her previous background was in pediatrics and now that she is an acupuncturist, she combines the knowledge of Western and Eastern medicine. Her office is very clean and conveniently located in downtown Bellevue across from the Home Depot. Parking is free as well. Overall I was very pleased with my experience and would recommend Dr. Zasimova to anyone.

    With only back surgery left to relieve the severe pain in my lower back and leg, according to the Western Dr's I saw; I elected to try acupuncture as a last resort. Upon seeing Dr. Yeh, she assessed my condition, read the X-rays and MRI images and set a plan of acupuncture to relieve the pain. By the 6th session I was totally pain free!! Not only had the pain been relieved, but I had a sense of well being that I hadn't felt before. I continue to go to Dr Yeh for accupuncture to keep my energy flowing and centered. Dr Yeh is highly skilled and I recommend her to keep your body healthy and pain free. Jack Mangels

    I did a good number of acupuncture sessions a few years ago for my back and I've been back pain free since then. This time I decided to try it because I've discovered that I'm allergic to cats. I went in with an open mind and, to be honest, with relatively high expectations. The process was simply amazing. Ioana (the acupuncturist) made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. The first session was very long, and we discussed about a lot of facts around my allergy and my health in general. She was very patient and thorough. During the needling a felt instantly better! I was so relieved and happy, almost unsure that I wasn't imagining it. The relief hold even after I got home. It was nothing short of a miracle for me. This is my 4th session and I'm very happy that my allergy is gone after these treatments (It has a tendency to come back after a few weeks around the cat). Will definitely go back for more treatments. Can't recommend it high enough.

    Dr. Heintze provided excellent treatment to eliminate my neck pain and headaches. I had been experiencing bad headaches from working long hours and in the first 5 minutes of my Acupuncture treatment my pain was gone. The remainder of the treatment sealed the deal and left me feeling in bliss the rest of the day. I followed the treatment plan and have not had a headache since!

      The experience I had during my session with Kathy and Chris was potent and powerful. Certainly no two sessions will ever be alike but I know Kathy and Chris are passionate about helping their clients resolve physical and emotional imbalances through acupuncture, Qi Gong, and other forms of energy work. I appreciate them and everything they have helped me with.

      I have a pleasure to work with Heather Kettner for nearly one year on coordination of care for some of my clients. The researches show that psychotherapy and acupuncture together is the best practice for treating mental health issues, such as stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and many more. Finding a powerful partner for coordination of care is the key for successful treatment. Heather is highly skilled practitioner, emphatic, knowledgeable and flexible. Before I referred my clients to Heather, I tried her services and was amazed with the success. It took very few sessions to feel more energized, less stressed and better motivated. Heather is able to build rich alliances with clients of different age and diverse cultural background – an exceptional talent. She is a great team player and colleague, in that she collaborates so beautifully, takes her work seriously, and does so with a worm and playful demeanor. In short, I would not hesitate to send any client to Heather for care.

      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.
