What Our Clients Have to Say


Acupuncture for Pain, Fatigue, and Insomnia.

I absolutely love getting acupuncture treatments at Transformational Acupuncture. It is an oasis of healing for me. I feel extremely blessed to have discovered such a healing haven. I have been going there for pain related to two surgical procedures, fatigue, and insomnia. I have been helped tremendously on all my issues. All of the healers are wonderful. I have tried Jeremy, Andrei, Courtney, and Amy and was extremely pleased with each one.

I love it that they are open on Sunday because it makes it easier to schedule an appointment since I work long hours during the work week. My oncology radiologist was so impressed with the lessening of my side effects during and after radiation therapy that he has requested that one of the healers speak to the doctors at GW University Medical Hospital about the positive healing effects of acupuncture for oncology patients. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Transformational Acupuncture.
