"After rupturing multiple discs within my lower back, I sought the expertise and natural healing of Eastern medicine as a way to mitigate the detrimental side-effects caused by painkillers and excessive medication. Thankfully, I found a wonderful solution through Fanis. She was instantly amicable and very thorough in examining my back, and offered a full treatment plan that went above and beyond my expectations. Her soothing method of utilizing Eastern medicine to foster natural healing was imperative towards accelerating my body's natural healing process. Doctors said that I wouldn't be able to sit for another five weeks, but through Fanis' acupuncture treatment and soothing touch, I was able to sit for a prolonged period of time comfortably both at home and in the car within a week! It was miraculous! In addition, the treatment was both calming and therapeutic -- almost like having multiple days at the spa but at the same time, geared towards promoting overall well-being and improved health. Fanis is extremely patient, knowledgeable and the best in class in terms of acupuncture and Eastern medicine, I highly recommend her" - M.N.
"Thank you for all that you did for me and healing my sciatica pain! Much appreciation!" - Barbara T.

"When I first came to see Fanis, I was experiencing issues with acne on my chest, body, and face. After multiple acupuncture treatments that included cupping and herbal supplements, I could already see drastic improvements with my acne. My back has cleared up completely, and my chest and face are almost completely cleared out. The treatments have been really great!" - Daniel F.
"For the past few months, my foot and back pain have been bothering me. I have been using painkillers but they were not effective and my pain would come back. Fanis gave me a very careful and detailed evaluation. She knew exactly what caused my pain and found the root cause of my problems. After several acupuncture treatments, my foot and back pain were gone. Fanis is very caring and skillful as an acupuncturist; when she inserts the needles, I can hardly feel the insertions" - W.H.
"I have visited Fanis over the last couple of months to treat my acne. She has greatly improved my acne through a combination of acupuncture, cupping, and herbal supplement. I no longer have severe cystic acne. Fanis also helped me once after suffering from food poisoning. I was completely healed the next day after acupuncture treatment. She truly cares about her patients and always very thorough with any questions I have. In addition, Fanis has given me great recommendations on how to avoid acne in the future and to improve my overall health. Her clinic is very clean and conveniently located" - C.K.
"I had lower leg pain and went to see Fanis for acupuncture treatment. After a few treatments, my lower leg pain is gone, I feel much lighter when I walk, and my whole body feels better.

"I had chronic lower back pain for 20 years and everyday I had to take pain pills but it only relieved my pain temporarily. My friend referred me to Fanis - she is very kind and easy to talk to. At the first visit, she diagnosed my health condition and after more than ten times of acupuncture treatment, I don't even notice that I still have lower back pain. It was amazing! I don't need to depend on my pain medicine anymore" - Lisa K.

"I have never had acupuncture performed on me before and I was always afraid of needles. But with my fatigue condition, I've already tried so many other medicines and physical therapy but it hasn't worked. After Acupuncturist Fanis gave me treatment and nutrition guidance, I gained back my energy. She also treated my lower back pain and after several visits it was healed. She is great! I highly recommend her." - Susan T.
"My doctor suggested acupuncture and referred me to Fanis. I fell on my tail bone and the pain went all the way to my hip and side of my leg.

After a few acupuncture treatments, my back feels much looser and the pain has not come back. Fanis is very knowledgeable about the specific pressure points that affect my back pain and the entire acupuncture process was pleasant - I will definitely go and see her again in the future" - W.S.

"Since I had neck and lower back pain for over 5 years, I had to give up golf, my favorite sport. I always felt stiffness in my neck, pulling pain on my lower back, and numbness in my toes.
