Read what some of our patients have to say about our work:



"I decided to try acupuncture because I heard good things about it. I went for many things, mainly anxiety and allergies. After a few treatments, I noticed my anxiety was better and I was having less panic attacks. My allergies also seemed to be improving. I had shoulder pain at one point and that went away after a few treatments. There were also a few times I had a sinus infection and one acupuncture treatment helped speed up healing and getting better. I also used herbs which helped to supplement the acupuncture and greatly helped with my allergies. I also did a few treatments for fertility when I started trying to get pregnant and within 6 months I was pregnant. Julie took care of me through all of this and she was great. She was very gentle and always seemed to know the best treatment for me. I recommend Julie if you are looking for acupuncture, she is great and very helpful." N.


Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

"My experience with Julie was wonderful. My conditions are now at the stage that they are kept in check. Acupuncture and Asian Body Therapy combined really helped improve my medical conditions. Although I am still taking Western medications, my PSA readings have reduced from 9.40 to 4.47. I would like to encourage anyone who would like to try acupuncture and Chinese herbs to do so. Even though they may be on prescription drugs, both can be combined for excellent results." A. S.


Digestive Disorders

"Since seeing Julie I have noticed a dramatic change in my body - my gluten allergy is still an allergy, but it affects me to a far lesser degree than before. The bloatedness I had is gone and people have commented on how much healthier I look. My migraine headaches are gone and I am sleeping better than I ever have before. Julie is very caring. She's a fantastic listener - she doesn't claim to have all the answers, but she's willing to work with you to solve the issues. I feel so much more in-tune with my body after doing acupuncture and I am convinced everyone can benefit in making it a regular piece to a healthy lifestyle." B.F.


"Julie Domagalski, L.Ac. is our family acupuncturist. She has proven herself to be a very knowledgeable, personable, caring practitioner who is passionate about Chinese medicine and how it can improve her patient's health and well being. I most recently obtained help from Julie for my 18 year old son with a chronic abdominal condition. Prior to seeing Julie we had sought help from his pediatrician, a gastroenterologist AND a holistic medical doctor with very little improvement. My son has seen Julie for several visits for acupuncture, Chinese herbs and other Asian therapies as needed. After seeing her just a short time, he started to feel better. Julie was the first practitioner we had seen to correlate my son's abdominal issues with stress and recommended stress relaxation as part of his therapy. That was to become the key to his improvement. My family feels very grateful for Julie's help, have benefited from her expertise and will continue to use her services in the future." Julie Sblendorio


Headaches / Migraines

"Julie is very professional and made me very comfortable. She has a genuine care and concern for my well-being and helping me get better. The treatment alleviated my neck problem which was causing my headaches in a couple days and the results lasted for almost a year. I had tried massages and physical therapy previously which only provided short term results (and took many more sessions to accomplish these short-term results). The herbs were very effective in eliminating the back pain and emotional outbursts I had with my periods." Tina

"Julie is always a good listener plus very caring and thoughtful. She checks up on her clients. My migraines always decreased when I would go to Julie. She told me about techniques and exercises I could do at home to help my migraines. She is great!" J.


Infertility / IVF Support

"After years of infertility, I was on my third round of IVF trying to get pregnant. I had done acupuncture at different clinics with my first two rounds, but the treatments were not successful. Then I was referred to Julie and had the most wonderful experience! I am happy to report that I am 36 weeks pregnant! I truly believe that Julie made a difference during my treatment. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and compassionate. Her bedside manner is fantastic and she takes into account all aspects of your life that may affect the outcome. From the moment I met Julie, I knew she was passionate about her job. I cannot thank her enough for helping me bring this miracle baby into the world. She made a profound difference during my treatment and I highly recommend her services." O.



"Julie Domagalski is a superb practitioner of Oriental Medicine. Julie is very skilled, gentle, knowledgeable, and the most compassionate health care provider I have ever had the pleasure to meet.  I came to her with a significant sleeping disorder from which I was suffering for quite some time. I had given up feeling that I could get better, but Julie would not let me give up. Her effusive attitude and enthusiasm were contagious. I can now happily say, after regular acupuncture and herbal treatments, I sleep amazingly well! Another surprise was how well this medicine via the heart, mind, and hands of a practitioner like Julie can deal with emotional and mental issues. Julie creates a very safe and non-judgmental environment where I was free to release that which was preventing me from being the most healthy, most growthful I could be. I am now not only the most healthy I have ever been, but also the most happy. I am living the life I have dreamed of. Oriental Medicine is truly a wholistic medicine and Julie is truly a wholistic healer. As with all healing journeys, one needs to be willing to put in the personal commitment to want a healthier life, but with Julie you will be in very competent, loving hands." Anonymous, but grateful patient


Numbness (Paresthesias) & Weak Grip in Hands

"Going to Julie Domagalski for forearm pain and lack of sensation and strength in my hands has been life-changing for me. After exhausting Western medications, doctors, neurosurgeons, two chiropractors, MRIs, and carpal tunnel tests, I was at my wit's end and hesitantly decided to try acupuncture. It was the best decision I have ever made.  After just one treatment I noticed a difference. Julie gave me a comprehensive plan, truly cared about my progress and offered affordable options. I would recommend not only acupuncture, but Julie as a phenomenal specialist who cares and caters to each person's specific needs." J.S.




"I had two appointments with Julie - acupuncture and reflexology. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results of my treatment AND the gentle, caring expertise of the practitioner, Julie Domagalski. She is so knowledgeable about her area of medicine and her manner of treatment is most reassuring and comforting. She is an expert in her craft! I was most pleased with the results. The mind, body, spirit connection is beautiful when in alignment. I am most grateful." Betty R. Portenlanger

"Julie's warm, knowledgeable personality led me to try an acupuncture session on a whim. I continued acupuncture for "well-being" as was convenient. Months later I experienced a debilitating episode of back / leg pain. After seeing an MD and orthopedic specialist (who suggested surgery), two chiropractors, and having x-rays and an MRI, I chose to continue with one chiropractor and Julie for acupuncture to relieve my pain and discomfort. By doing so, I avoided surgery and cortisone epidurals. It was fascinating to "uncover" secrets and memories buried in my tissue while quietly laying during acupuncture treatments. I do believe these memories served to remind me of earlier trauma/accidents that may have set the stage and led to current physical ailments and dysfunctions. I am very grateful and impressed with the degree and pain abatement after realized after each acupuncture session. I'm now seeking acupuncture treatment to help reduce my blood pressure. I am confident that I will see results under the guidance and care of Julie." A.P.

"I have been seeing Julie for hip, calf and foot pain on a regular basis for about 6 months. After lack of consensus regarding the cause of the pain from numerous surgeons and doctors based on MRIs and X-rays, as well as unsuccessful results from physical therapy treatments and cortisone injections, I decided to give acupuncture a try. My pain has not completely disappeared, but the overall intensity of the pain has lessened and the excruciating episodes have become fewer. Through the combination of acupuncture sessions, herbal supplements, and dietary changes, I am better able to deal with the pain that lingers.  I look forward to my acupuncture visits with Julie. She is extremely easy to talk to, answers all my questions, and is available to speak with me at a later time if I have any questions. She takes the time to thoroughly explain how pain affects my body according to an Eastern approach to healing. Additionally, her background in biopharmaceuticals contributes to my confidence in her ability to choose and mix Chinese herbs. She is truly dedicated to her profession and gives you the feeling that you are the only patient she is treating. I never feel as if I am being rushed out the door after a session." Sharry

"My right ankle was shattered in an accident and I sought treatment to walk normally again. Julie Domagalski was knowledgeable and skilled in understanding my discomfort. They were capable of diminishing the pain. The acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine with Asian body therapy was fabulous pain management making inflammation disappear. My orthopedic surgeon connected my ankle to my leg but the medicine prescribed did not help in reducing inflammation or ease my ability to walk as the combination of East Asian medicine provided." Judy



"This was my first exposure with acupuncture-it works! I came in for pain relief and comfort while suffering from shingles. It definitely did help with relaxation of my whole body too. I was very intensely talking to Julie-learned a very great deal about East Asian medicine." Patricia


Sports Injuries

"Julie is one of the most caring practitioners I've ever come across. Her suggestions were spot on and I got a bit of relief I'd not had in months since I tore my rotator cuff while exercising. Asian medicine is one of the only treatments my body responds to properly." Maria Gonzalez





"Julie is hands down the finest and most caring Asian Health Practitioner I've ever dealt with. I came to her after suffering vertigo for several years and all the Western medicine doctors told me that there was nothing I can do. The treatment of acupuncture and Chinese herbs not only treated the vertigo, but it also cures my stage fright and kept both away for almost 2 years now.  I am currently being treated for menstrual problems, so far, successfully. I am very happy I explored Julie's help in these matters. The facility is beautiful, peaceful, sparkling clean, and welcoming. I give Julie five stars out of 5 stars." D

 "A few years ago I was struck by an intense experience of ear ringing and vertigo that required hospitalization. I tried various medications and therapies, but the most they did was slightly lessen the symptoms. I was given a gift certificate for acupuncture with Julie, and after just a few treatments, I never had an episode of vertigo again. The ear ringing has been drastically reduced as well. I have continued to see Julie for other issues such as colds and body aches and she always reduces or eliminates the problem. I highly recommend her to everyone I meet!" Lisa
