What Our Patients Are Saying

"Andrea is a miracle worker. In my opinion, she has the best skills in the nation. I actually will travel 3,000 miles to go for a visit since I’ve moved to NY. Nothing else compares. Her ability to combine insight with her fantastic education and years of experience make this one an obvious choice. If you’re in the Seattle area you have got to go to HOKU Acupuncture." - N.S.
"I have never felt better then after my session with Andrea. She is so in-tune with women and really brought me a sense of peace. Thanks so much!!!" - S.A.S.
"Thanks so much for all the support, advice and expertise in helping us get pregnant! We are so looking forward to our second baby girl!" - L.S.
"Years ago playing sports, I injured my shoulder which limited my range of motion, and resulted in (unfortunately) being able to “feel” cold days. Finally, I realized if nothing was done something more serious, such as arthritis, would develop. On a suggestion, I went to acupuncture and luckily found Andrea. She was (and is) professional, knowledgeable, caring and understanding. Admittedly at first, I was uncomfortable with the thought of numerous needles (which are actually very small) protruding from me, but thru Andrea’s light touch and understanding she helped reassure me and calm me. Through those treatments and her suggestions, my shoulder quickly healed and regained its former strength and range of motion." - M.M.
"Andrea started treating me more than three years ago. She is extremely intuitive, gentle, insightful, and her experience in women's health is exceptional and unusual. I used to have heavy, long menstrual cycles with significant PMS symptoms. Within just a few treatments, my cycles were 28 days, I had no PMS, and my periods only lasted four days. Since then, she has helped me through several years of infertility and the related treatments (IUI, egg retrieval, frozen embryo transfer, and all related hormone therapies). Without question, Andrea's treatments and care have kept me balanced, healthy, out of unnecessary pain, and stable mentally and emotionally throughout what is a challenging process. I am indebted to Andrea and credit her with my total health. I am so grateful for her care and recommend her highly to anyone looking for balanced TCM care. Thank you!" - J.B.
"I have suffered through poor digestion for many years and had tried everything from detoxing, pills to changing my diet/exercise and nothing seemed to work. Under the suggestion of a dear friend I looked into acupuncture and thankfully found Andrea. I was nervous and a bit embarrassed to go into an office and share this personal dilemma with someone I didn’t know but upon meeting her that all faded away. Andrea was warm, inviting, professional and very knowledgeable. We began our sessions to work with poor digestion and in the process she discovered I also had poor circulation. Since receiving these treatments with Andrea my feet and hands have warmth and my digestive system works as it should. Thank you Andrea, I recommend you to all!" - T.T.
"Andrea has helped me out tremendously! She is extremely intuitive and her treatments are very unique. This is not the “put the needles in and then leave the room” type of treatment. Andrea’s 5 Element approach is amazing and I highly recommend it."
