Very good experience!!! Judy is so nice. After 1 session prior to ovulation, I was able to get pregnant! Don't know if it directly related to acupuncture but whatever it is, I'm happy! If it was more affordable, I would every week but it's not with a bun in the oven!

Overall Rating

Came in to Acupuncture Express because I was really stressed and my back was hurting. First time doing acupuncture so I was a little nervous but felt really comfortable because of Judy's help and her talking me through it. Feeling a lot better and will definitely go back!

This place is the best for acupuncture. Judy is an amazing healer and the staff is so friendly. I come in here for a quick session during my lunch break and it makes me feel so much better for the rest of my afternoon and energized! My pain melted away!!!

Came in through the Groupon deal and I ended up staying because I really like the membership option. It makes it more affordable as a cash insurance doesn't cover acu. The rooms are very soothing and calm and i always fall asleep during my treatments and leave ver y relaxed.

This place is my getaway!!!! Judy is an amazing acupuncturist and I come in one every two weeks to re-charge. My pain has reduced since I've been there and I've been sleeping more. pLUS its very affordable for my tight budget.

I've been seeing Judy for 15 years now and I always recommend her to my friends/family. She is a miracle worker I tell ya!!! Recently, I came in for deep muscle shoulder pain and Judy used electro-stimulation and the pain was gone!!! The membership comes in handy for me because I work out a lot and aggravate my muscles and acupuncture is my go to remedy. It's also a plus that I can set my appointment online :)

Overall Rating

I came in for back and neck pain and my pain has melted away. I continue going once a month for a routine checkup and because I just adore Judy (Acupuncturist) and the whole staff. I've created a close bond with everyone who works there. i highly recommend them.
