TESTIMONIALS

CASE PRESENTATION: INCREASED RANGE OF MOTION, FLEXIBILITY, ENHANCED SENSE OF WELL-BEING
BENEFITS EXPERIENCED WITHIN 5 TREATMENTS

FACE RASH, DIGESTION, MOOD
yelp/google

"I came to Dr. Shivali with a face rash (perioral dermatitis) that has plagued me off and on for 12 years, first appearing when I was pregnant with my first child. I have gone to several dermatologists over the years and most recently an endocrinologist to try and relieve me of my most recent outbreak. All they ever say is that no one really knows the cause and definitely not the cure, then they try to give me topical steroids (which is a known trigger for PD). After blood work came back normal (besides my already established anemia) at the endo's office, he basically threw his hands up and said it was makeup and that I just shouldn't wear any at all ever.


Dr. Shivali's approach differed in every conceivable way. She treated the rash as just one part of a much larger puzzle. Symptoms that I never would have associated she explained were actually the root and the rash was merely an outward manifestation. After our very first session the redness of my rash lightened considerably. I couldn't believe the immediate response. But better even than that, as I continued to see her so many other things began improving at the same time since she was treating the root cause and not just a superficial symptom. Digestive issues started to improve, my energy increased, my sleep quality improved, my MOOD elevated. I left each session feeling revitalized and happy, plus my rash was finally going away at an amazing rate. Most sessions felt like magic since results were so immediate. I left her care truly healed and armed with a better understanding of my body and the knowledge with which to maintain the excellent work she did.

Dr. Shivali is a true empath. She is a natural healer and nurturer and makes her patients feel important and listened to. The care she exhibits and her giving nature all add to the healing energy of her practice. Pair that with her vastly extensive knowledge (which she explains in a very accessible way) and you have the perfect doctor. My experience was beyond compare and I will for sure be going back for anything that pops up in the future. I highly recommend her!"


MIGRAINES, MENOPAUSE, SLEEP ISSUES, BACK/HIP PAIN

"Dr. Shivali and Dr. Dimitri are amazing practitioners. I was first scared to have acupuncture but Dr. Dimitri has such a kind and compassionate way about him that I immediately felt at ease. I have been seeing him for over a year now and he has really helped me with my migraines, menopause, sleep issues, hip and back pain. I recently came down with a bad cold and having acupuncture for the ailments really helped me and I was able to feel better within a day. I highly recommend this practice, they are both so knowledgeable,  I plan on recommending them to all my family and friends."


HEAD INJURY, HEADACHES, FATIGUE

"All I can say is WOW! Dr. Shivali is great! She provides a personal touch and listens to assure all of your needs are attended to. I went in suffering from headaches and fatigue. Dr. Shivali captured a comprehensive health history to aid in developing a personal action plan.  Dr. Shivali has a warm and caring attitude to anyone who walks into her office and each patient receives that same personal attention they deserve. The office offers a serene environment where relaxation is a must. To top it all off, pricing is fair, but the service you receive is extraordinary and personal!"


“Dr. Shivali has been healing me for over a year. When I came to her I had chronic cough, ear infections and was constantly sick and in pain. She is so very knowledgeable about health and wellness and her love for her practice and patients come through. I can breathe freely and my cough has been gone for a while. Now she is helping me with Thyroid issues. I highly recommend that you open your mind to total body healing and give her a call, your life will be changed in positive ways.”

“Shivali is a wonderfully well-rounded acupuncturist. She looks at you as a whole-person and helps you to become as healthy as possible. 

I started seeing her for back pain and now also facial pain, but that's not all she has helped me with. She guided me to overcome my lactose-intolerance and menstrual issues. 

The best part about going to her is that with each visit she gives you an amazing, warm, and heart-felt hug!!  :)“

“It has been a little over a year since I first met Dr. Shivali and immediately had a mini treatment that erased a chronic pain. I was very impressed with her & her amazing treatments from that moment on. I have so much going on with my body, we meet usually twice a month, more if needed with amazing results! She can read my problems when I am clueless. Every time I go it's such a warm, caring, peaceful environment & I am so relaxed & joyful after feeling truly blessed by my whole experience! There's nothing like it! I feel like they are family at Dr. Shivali's beautiful office & treatment rooms. There are also healthy herbal teas, vitamins & healing salves available plus great advice. She goes above & beyond for her patients and I am so privileged to have her in my life!”


NEUROPATHY, SKIN RASH, SHOULDER PAIN, WEIGHT MANAGEMENT/NUTRITIONAL GUIDANCE
YELP

“Dr. Shivali has played a huge role in my healing journey. Prior to her treating me I was experiencing burning nerve sensations through out my body which she treated and they stopped after one session. I also had two rashes which cleared up within a few sessions. I also had a lot of discomfort with my shoulder that cracked every time I moved it. I had surgery on it about 20 years ago and since then it made a cracking noise which is completely gone now. Dr. Shivali helped me so much with functional nutrition. She educated me on what she thought would have the best results based on what I liked to eat and helped me understand carb intake and the importance of balanced nutrition. Since I have started acupuncture I have lost a total of 21 pounds in 2.5 months. She makes you feel safe and goes above and beyond to educate you on your health. It is true what everyone says. She gives the best hugs! I highly recommend her! Her facility is peaceful and serene and the staff makes you feel at ease. Thank you Dr. Shivali for all your help. You are truly a gift.”


POST-SURGICAL FOOT PAIN, IMPROVED SLEEP
YELP

“I broke my foot years ago and still have pain, stiffness, and swelling. Literally after one treatment, Shivali was able to significantly decrease the swelling and pain. I also sleep so well the nights after a treatment. She is professional and you can tell she genuinely cares about her patients. I highly recommend her!”
