Testimonials for Natasha


“Acupuncture and Chinese medicine used to be a place I would turn when my primary care provider was unable to address my concerns. After seeing Natasha, I now think of her first.”

—C.D., RN MPH

Testimonials for Dr. Ycasas


“Dr. Terry is one of those practitioners who actually addresses the whole patient. She is incredibly present during the appointment. I really feel like she listens and treats me with great care and respect. I never come away feeling like I have been manhandled, and feel uplifted after each session with her.”

—S.Y.

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I have commercially fished for 33 years and have been a competitive power lifter for 25, which has caused severe arthritis in both hips. I’d had prolotherapy done with Dr. Minarik and had geat results. We had both discussed that PRP might be a good way to go for my hips. With the option between replaced hips or PRP, I chose PRP. With just 1 injection on the left side, I’ve had great results and no pain anymore after 6 weeks. Now we are working on the right side. I’m thinking of going back to power lifting.”

– G.O., 61 years old

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


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.

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.”

—Y. L. MD

“The only thing MJ couldn’t fix is that I’m OLD…but she sure made me feel better.”
