The reasons I visited Acupuncture Healing Center were for Social Anxiety,Anxiety, Mental blockage, irritability, depression, attention problems. All these symptoms have been present for me for 27 years. I've tried western medicine since I was 14 with no success. Dr. Long saw me via video chat, I explained my situation. in less than 1 week, Herbs and talk therapy have reduced symptoms to non existent levels. You can feel compassion and caring in their voices and actions, Western medicine always made me feel hollow and empty. Western Medicine fails because they don't treat the root but rather the symptoms. The herbs that I was prescribed are phenomenal, I feel relief in my symptoms almost immediately. Listen to your body,Drink your Herbs, follow the directions of the staff and you'll be on the track to recovery. You need to be consistent and follow all guidelines if you want any kind of shot at recovery.

Pricey, but good. Whatever doctor CJ did it worked. I can see this working for people with anxiety. He was very pleasant and so was the staff. I would love to come back but ran low on funds.

The facilities are more than adequate but they are not amazing, just basic. I do wish there were walls so your health information isn’t shared with all the clients who are there.

This place offers all the services you would want from a TCM/acupuncture clinic with an herb shop next door. While you are getting the acupuncture treatment, your dr. will go next door and have your herbs pulled for you and it's easy to pick them up after your appointment. Also, I like that this is reasonably priced and - the best part - they accept insurance (although mine denied it, it was great that they offer that option to try to bill it for you).

would like a private rooms to discuss any medical conditions-do not want to hear conversations from other patients plus I am very private.[the walls in the rooms should be built from floor to ceiling not partial height but full height.That is my main concern.
