Testimonials for Natasha


“The neurosurgeon said I had two weeks before I had to have back surgery to avoid nerve damage. After three treatments, I got up from the table and realized the pain was gone! I actually wept with relief. I’m really glad I came in. The acupuncture has given me the chance to heal without surgery.”

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I’m a 66 year old practitioner of Crossfit, a vigorous regiment of weight training, mobility training and gymnastics. I had been involved in the sport when I damaged my shoulder. You identified the issue as a complex combination of bursitis, tendinitis, torn ligaments and a generally unhealthy 66 year old shoulder. You recommended several PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatments… My recovery has been more than I had hoped. Within four months I was back to pre-injury levels. At the beginning of 2014 [after PRP treatment] I began training of the Crossfit Open Games. I completed the 5 session competition several weeks ago… The competition included, among other movements, pull-ups, dead lifts, burpees, and thrusters. All of these movements required a strong, active, healthy shoulder.

Thanks for the treatment and the resulting opportunity to become a better Crossfit athlete.”

Testimonials for Natasha


“I have been a physician for 25 years. It is always interesting to see the faces of my patients when I tell them that my health care provider is my acupuncturist. I always tell them that when I am sick the first person I call is Tasha. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of skepticism about the benefits of acupuncture among the medical community and the public. I can attest by personal experience, and that of my patients, that acupuncture is a very effective and valid healing method. Tasha has been my caregiver for the last 6 years, she is not only an excellent acupuncturist she is also a wonderful person. I refer many of my patients to her and all of them share the same opinion. I highly recommend Tasha not only as a patient but also as a physician who has seen the benefit and excellent results that she has achieved with my own patients that I have referred to her.”

I’ve been seeing Dr Minarik for 4 or 5 years now and the level of care he provides and the wealth of knowledge he possesses in my mind goes unrivaled. Even now living in California I still fly back regularly to visit with him about various health concerns.

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I am so thankful for Dr. Minarik! He found my problem immediately after having gone undiagnosed for years. Dr. Minarik prescribed a strict diet, a few supplements and he worked with me to keep medication to a minimum. After only 6 months my diabetes is under control. I only wish I would have found him sooner.”

—T.S.
