I truly enjoy Shirley and Ed at the Acupuncture Center. They take the time to listen and I never feel rushed. They are atentative to listening to your body's imbalances and listening to feedback on follow-up visits.

Shirley had helped me so much in the past several months. It has been great to find someone who will find the root of the problem and not just put a bandaid on it.

Theo W. on Yelp

My treatment has been with Shirley. She is a very caring professional and cares about all aspects of your life, not just the reason you came in. I have had nutritional counseling, Chinese herbs, and acupuncture with her, and I highly recommend her.

Kate H. on Yelp

My first impression was a peaceful and clean waiting area, the wait was, well there was NO wait really. Ed was awesome attentive and patient while I rambled on with my "issues". He spent a great deal of time evaluating my painful ankle, and explaining my treatment plan as well as the payment and insurance process.
