Herniated Discs – Yelp Review

After being in pain for more than five years and dealing with herniated discs (L4+L5), hernia, groin injury and after seeing a couple of different acupuncturists and chiropractors, I had decided to give Anna a try. Sure the reviews seemed too good to be true. Being skeptical and open minded as I am on the other hand, I had decided to give the Elements in Harmony a try. The first time I called I didn’t know what to expect. Anna was her usual self, kind, down to earth and very knowledgeable, as usual. During my first appointment, I was told that after a specific period of time, I should see improvements. I was eager and delighted to try the process. After the first couple of months, my condition did improve greatly where at times I was fluctuating anywhere between 90-98% improvement. Additionally, one thing you wont get from any other acupuncturist that I know of since I’ve seen couple of others within the area (Anna is the best hands down, at least in my opinion), is that Anna is willing to listen, provide some positive input on life and how to go about things/life in general, which is a very rare quality. I’m very thankful people like Anna exist.

Pain – Brooke’s Testimonial

PAIN – Brooke’s Testimonial

 

“Anna is, in all senses of the word, a true Healer. Not only are her treatments extremely effective for the physical problems I’ve had, emotionally I feel like a different person every time I leave as well.

I started to see Anna because I felt depressed, and I left the first treatment already feeling much better than I’d felt in a very long time. Sometimes Anna gives me a mantra to work with or something to think about on the table. Other times, it’s just her wisdom and very presence that make feel better. Anna’s positive outlook is contagious, and she always seems to know exactly what to tell me to focus on mentally and emotionally to feel good.

 

I felt so much better after about ten treatments, that I started only going in for physical problems every now and then. I hadn’t gone for about two weeks, and I started to feel bad again, so I made an appointment. I literally went into her office crying, and left laughing. I could not get over the difference, and how fast it was.

 

Anna is such a warm person, and I also love how her daughters are sometimes at the office. They make it feel much more like a healing center, and give a community feel to the experience.

 

Every time anyone I know starts talking about a physical or emotional issue, I always tell them about Anna and recommend her. Her acupuncture is true medicine, and has given me health, balance and peace of mind. What more can I ask for, really? I give her my highest recommendation and feel so lucky to have found her.”

 

 

Thank you thank you thank you Anna :)

 

Talk to you soon,

I came last minute for Anna’s treatment for labor induction. I was nearing 41 weeks and receiving pressure from my OB to induce. I wanted a natural birth and after Anna’s treatment I left her studio at 5pm on 8/24/2015 and went into labor at around 2am.  That night my baby was born at 7:30 8/25/2015 the next morning.  All natural, no epidural or chemical induction.

 

What an incredible experience I am so grateful for natural healers like Anna!

I have no apparent illness, pain or health issues, but I have been coming to Anna for quite a while for what she calls regular tune-ups. I call them pick-me-ups. I always ask her to: calm my brain, boost my immune system, make me feel better and help me relax. And she does that every time. I feel like a new person when I walk out of her office.

Thank you so much, Anna!

I don’t know why I waited this long to write a review for Ms. Anna and her wonderful work, but I am here now writing about the work she does and how it truly does work. I know that many are skeptic of Eastern medicine including acupuncture and herbs, but if you are reading this because you want to try something different for your ailments, you need to try acupuncture with Anna. I originally came to Anna a few years back to help me with my anxiety and depression issues. I have been on medicine, but it was not fully helping me be “happy” and get the things done in the way I needed to. Anna was my last resort because of the endless medicines and doctors I was trying. I immediately felt the Zen, if you would, when I walked into her office. She made me feel very comfortable about being there and I did a full survey about what I was going through, what I was doing to be treated, history, and my goals. Anna refers to these sheets and your goals everytime you go to her. My anxiety and depression felt better in just a few short weeks. I was ready to get started on more problems I was experiencing. Through the years Anna has helped me with my general anxiety, depression, getting my mentral periods on a regular schedule, body aches, and headaches/migraines. You don’t even need a specific problem to see her, you can go to have a quiet relaxing time out of your hectic schedule, or just to get a general pick me up. The amount of sessions you need and how often depend on what you are going in for and the pricing has been very afforadable when I compared her to local acupuncture businesses. I have found my guardian angel on Earth and I would not trade seeing Anna for anyone else. She is highly recommended as an Eastern medicine guru and she becomes a true friend. Thank you, Anna, for all your hard work and making my life that much better.

“Anna’s knowledge, skills and techniques are amazing. Her hospitality is so warm, kind and comfortable that it makes you feel right at home. I can’t believe how I can be in this good of condition just in 3 treatments or in 3 days. When using the western medicine, it would’ve taken at least 3 months to heal!

anna is truly a God send to us. after our son turned one, my husband and i planned on trying for our second child. it took almost a year on our own to finally get pregnant and sadly that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. my doctor said it would be ok to start trying after my next menstrual cycle. we were able to get pregnant again… but sadly that pregnancy, ended with a second miscarriage. my doctor told me, because of my age (39 at that time) i only had a 30% chance of having a viable pregnancy.  i was devastated. i wasn’t sure if i wanted to try again because i was so traumatized with the past experience with the miscarriages and the news that i only have a 30% chance of having a viable pregnancy.

my husband and i prayed and prayed for an answer and what came to light was anna. i called anna and asked her if she can help us. she told me to go on her website to read/watch her videos and testimonials regarding fertility. after doing so, i felt confident that anna could help us. i was seen once a week and each treatment was different based on where i was on my cycle. anna was able to normalize my menstrual cycle within four weeks of seeing her. throughout each treatment, anna provided confidence, support, and positive energy. SHE GAVE ME HOPE. after approximately 12 treatments, anna told us we were ready to start trying… and with the first try, we were pregnant! i was still so very scared. i was extremely anxious at my OB appointments as i went in for check ups and ultrasounds. anna knew my anxiety and ALWAYS kept me positive. with each check up i had great reports. our baby’s heart rate is strong the ultrasounds looked great. i continued to see anna weekly, not only to keep my baby and i strong, but for my own mental sanity. anna’s own spirituality and energy continued to give me hope and strengthen my faith.
i continued to see anna every week up until my 20th week of pregnancy, then saw her every other week. i had an easy pregnancy, no nausea, no vomiting, no major discomforts. when i had mild complaints of fatigue, sciatica, gas/acid reflux, and insomnia, i would tell anna and after treatment, i’d be symptom free within less than 12 hours.

i am a forty year old woman. as i write this, i am staring at my beautiful, healthy, strong baby daughter who was born full term naturally at 40.3 weeks. i thank the Lord for my blessings and am so very thankful that anna has helped me in so many ways throughout this journey.

i cannot express enough how much heart anna puts into her work and with her clients. i am so grateful to anna for her expertise in chinese medicine along with her love and support.

anna is a very knowledgable practitioner and is exceptional at what she does.
we are truly thankful for her gift of healing.

I went to see Anna on a recommendation from my Doula. I was 40 weeks pregnant and my OB wanted to induce me if I did not go into labor within one week. Since I was hoping for an unmedicated VBAC, I knew that I pretty much had to go into labor on my own to get the outcome I was hoping for.

 

I went to see Anna and not only did she talk to me about the goals I had for seeing her, we discussed my past birth experience and the importance of letting any negative energy go. She was so very kind and informative, and together we set the intention we hoped for, which was for me to go into labor on my own within one week. It was a tall order but Anna made me feel confidant that we could do it.

 

I saw her three days in a row, the first appointment was for an hour and the second and third were for about 1.5 hours. On the fourth day, I went into labor! I had the unmedicated VBAC I had hoped for and can’t help but feel that Anna absolutely helped to induce labor.

 

In addition, I loved going to her office! Her therapy dog was super calming, and when her daughters were there, they were adorable. Her treatment room was very comfortable and she played soothing music, which lulled me to sleep every time I was there. Any time there was a needle that needed adjusting, she was right there to fix it and checked in on a regular basis to make sure all was well.

 

My VERY highest regard, rating, and recommendation go to Anna! I am so very grateful to have found her!

 

 

Thank you for all of your wonderful referrals, Southern California!  Thank you for your many great testimonials and Yelp Reviews.  Kindly visit my website to learn more about my work.  I am so grateful to be a part of a community that sees tremendous value in the practice of Chinese medicine.

THYROID

Anna has been the answer to so many of my problems! I originally found her after having my son, when he was about 10 months old. The sides of my neck (Sternocleidomastoid) and the front of my neck (thyroid area) were sore and tender in a way I have never experienced before. I went to the doctor and had my thyroid tested. I didn’t have any of the “typical” thyroid problems, but she said my levels were “off” for one thing that was tested. The doctor made it seem very scary and like I had a disease. I was to wait awhile to come back and have another blood test. I was in the middle of weaning my son from breastfeeding, and thought this might be why my thyroid levels were “off” since the thyroid is what controls hormones. The doctor said there was no correlation, which I thought was strange. So in the meantime, I searched for alternative paths and found Anna. She was like a breath of fresh air. She listened to everything I said very carefully and told me that our bodies are in flux all the time, and that she thought the weaning from breastfeeding played a part in it. It’s all connected. She made me feel normal and like it wasn’t something she couldn’t fix.

During my first treatment, I literally had to open my eyes and look around because I felt like someone had their hand on my throat and was pressing it. Of course there was nobody there, but that’s how powerful it was. Afterward, Anna told me it was all the energy being drawn there. The needles were strategically placed around my feet, ankles, and wrists to draw the energy up to my throat/ neck area. When I got off the table, my sore neck was virtually gone! That night, I slept more soundly than I had in longer than I could remember. I decided to buy a package and continue to go since it made me feel so good. After about 8 treatments, I had a blood test for my thyroid and everything was totally normal! I continue to go to Anna every now and then if something else comes up, like a sore back or for basically anything. I always look forward to my treatments. Anna = HOPE.

 

Testimonial

DEPRESSION

 

Hi Anna,

I was on a book forum (of all places) where someone asked for suggestions assisting with depression. I thought of how acupuncture helped me and went to your testimonial page to share the information with others. I was shocked and amazed to see I wrote the testimonial; way back in 2009, yes 5 years ago. I am sitting here reading how my life used to be before acupuncture healed my body from depression.

5 years of no depression; I know seriously 5 years of no depressive episodes-I could not believe all this time passed. Before anyone says; I am being a Pollyanna, I have times where I am angry, sad, unhappy as I am a human being after all, however the deep dark depressive cycles not at all.

Thank you for helping me all those years ago as my health (in this area) is still going strong.

My original testimonial is below.

June 2009

Depression is not something normally shared and I rarely discuss my personal battle with family or friends. I agreed to write this hopefully assisting others who battle serious depression.

I suffered from depressive episodes for a large part of my life. The depression cycle would last from a few weeks to as long as 6 months. As a teenage I thought about the two options for my life; the first choice ends the pain of living, the second choice revolved around learning to live with the pain. Each time I thought about the choice, I chose life because I knew depression would not last forever. As an adult, I learned to recognize the first symptoms of a depressive cycle working toward not letting the depression overtake my life.

In college, my longest episode lasted over 8 months and at the time I seriously thought about different types of therapy. In the end, I choose not to pursue therapeutic treatment for two very simple reasons. The first option I understood required taking medications masking the symptoms. I wanted a cure for my depression not a pill I would take daily to change my mood. The other standard therapy of talking to a therapist never interested me because I never understood how talking about my problems would actually cure my depression. Sure we all need to vent and share feelings but telling some stranger my personal issues and expecting some “magic†words of wisdom making the depression end seemed unrealistic. Additionally, all my depressive episodes end after a time and I knew waiting long enough this current episode would also end. After college, I experienced various bouts of depression, all eventually ending.

In the summer of 2008, I experienced another bout of depression and knowing about acupuncture decided to seek treatment focused on healing not masking symptoms. Anna treated me specifically for depression, however I did not tell the entire history of my depression, just that I battled depression in the past. This probably made treating my depression more difficult for Anna. Anna treated me twice a week for several weeks; each treatment asking how I was improving. The improvement was not overnight, there was no miraculous waking up the next day and feeling totally normal. The process was slow but steady progress with each treatment I noticed a very gradual improvement. After several treatments, Anna discussed the option of taking Chinese herbs assisting the acupuncture treatments. At the end of the treatment, Anna did not insist I take the herbs instead handed me a package of information about the herbs. I read the information and noted what the herbs did; how the herbs worked and decided to take the herbs in addition to the acupuncture. The main point of the herbs was not to mask the symptoms but assist in healing my body from the causes of depression. During the next treatment, I agreed taking the herbs on top of the acupuncture and in about 2 months, the depression ended. While this might seem like a long time to some, what I know about my battle with depression and the seriousness of the battle, 2 months was comparably short.

I have not experienced any depressive symptoms in the past 10 months. Acupuncture healed the underlying causes of my depression and not only masking my symptoms. I highly recommend Anna as an acupuncturist and acupuncture as a therapy option for depression.
