It has truly helped me de-stress and bring a sense of balance back to my life.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I first came to see Jeremy for acupuncture treatments.  Immediately, Jeremy's good nature, compassion and attentiveness put me at ease.  He really listened to my complaints and I could feel he really wanted to help me.  The calm and relaxation that comes over me during my acupuncture treatments is nothing like I have felt before. For lack of better words, I can only describe it as a meditative state where I can't tell where my body ends and the acupuncture table begins.  It has truly helped me de-stress and bring a sense of balance back to my life.  Anyone who is considering acupuncture should really give it a try. With Jeremy's help I'm sure anyone can achieve their wellness goals, whatever they may be.

He (Jeremy) is a man of deep integrity, caring, and patience.

I first met Jeremy through my dentist, who has been on the vanguard of holistic medicine and biologic dentistry. Despite modern medicine's inclination (and the insurance industry's complicity) to separate our teeth, eyes, and ears from the body, it's all connected. Jeremy not only provided gentle treatments to address some dental discomfort, he focused on left hip and back pain, recurring depression, and symptoms of ADD. Within one or two treatments, the hip pain was gone. He also offered Traditional Chinese Medicine as an alternative to conventional OTC remedies in the form of herbs to support my immune system when I was faced with colds, coughing, and flu. The healer-patient relationship is a mutual one: Jeremy listened intently to really hear what I had to say, but also challenged me to bring out the inner healer in me. He is a man of deep integrity, caring, and patience. I have been fortunate to have his help on this phase of my own journey.

Jeremy is a skilled and deeply compassionate practitioner—I recommend him highly

Not only is Jeremy well-studied and practiced, and a font of information, he also has an innate gift for healing that can't be learned. He listens, processes, and always offers me more than one approach to addressing whatever is going on in my mind or body on a given day—whether it's a momentary ailment or a long-term issue he's helping me work through. Jeremy is a skilled and deeply compassionate practitioner; I recommend him highly.

I now consider acupuncture a powerful tool to deal with depression.

I came to Transformational Acupuncture with deep depression that accompanied my recovery from a painful back injury. Though my physical pain led me to book my first appointment, the mental benefits of acupuncture are what most exceeded my expectations. I felt a weight lifted after several appointments and now consider acupuncture a powerful tool to deal with depression. Jeremy is an attentive listener and has encouraged me to consider depression in a new, less self-judging way that has ultimately eased its symptoms. I knew very little about acupuncture but am so glad I gave it a try at Transformational Acupuncture. I would recommend anyone considering it to do the same!

I absolutely love this place.

I have been struggling for years with fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome and tried the standard pharmaceutical treatments (such as Lyrica) and found that they only made me feel more tired and introduced a lot of unwanted side effects. My physician mentioned that yoga and acupuncture have helped some people with my condition, so I went in search of an acupuncturist and I found Transformational Acupuncture right in my neighborhood.

It's a beautiful space on the top floor of a quaint building. The scheduling and hours are great and they truly do work as a team, so each member is very familiar with your treatment plan if you choose to see different therapists. I see Amy Babb most frequently. She's warm, has a great sense of humor, and she has a wonderful ability to find holistic solutions, from her acupuncture treatments to Chinese herbal medicine to meditation and qi gong exercises. Acupuncture really kick started my recovery, but Amy's blend of daily herbal medicine and movement exercises help maintain it. I feel so much better and am so grateful to have found such a caring team.

These practitioners help me understand what’s going on in my body much better than any gynecologist has been able to.

I came to Transformational Acupuncture after nearly two years of intense chronic pain and discomfort related to autoimmune and gynecological disorders. From my very first visits, the practitioners here have given me a level of care and attention that is far above and beyond what I got from any of the multiple doctors and specialists I’ve seen in the past two years. These people really care about the health and well-being of their patients. They’re not in it for the money, and they don’t push me to take drugs or buy products. They track my symptoms with great care and detail and take the time to assess my progress with every visit. At times, they’ve even referred me to other practices. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to natural health care practices. Women’s health care is incredibly poor in this country. But these practitioners help me understand what’s going on in my body much better than any gynecologist has been able to.

I highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture for all your acupuncture and Chinese medicine needs. My health journey is a long and slow one. Transformational Acupuncture was the first practice in two years that helped me make some progress.

Wiping out migraines and taming anxiety

I started coming to Transformational Acupuncture because I was looking for a way to reduce migraines and help deal with anxiety I was experiencing after a recent serious medical issue. I used to get about 7-10 migraines with aura per year, but in the year I've been doing acupuncture, I haven't gotten any! Acupuncture has also been extremely effective for my anxiety; within a few weeks, I found that I was much less anxious. I mainly see Courtney but have also seen Andrei, Jeremy, and Amy, and they are all wonderful. They're all very easy to talk to and have a nice, gentle approach. I've already told a few friends about Transformational Acupuncture and can't recommend them highly enough!

My last resort after chiropractic and physical therapy

In my personal experience, Transformational Acupuncture has provided more pain relief for my back than physical therapy and chiropractic care. I can now sleep without painkillers and participate in everyday activities like driving. Although I went to other acupuncture clinics in the past, their treatment as not as effective as Transformational Acupuncture.

This clinic has changed my life.

I had been to several doctors, an internist, and all had told me that medication was the only solution for a condition I was dealing with.

Finally I did some research and stumbled upon Transformational Acupuncture. I called and they set me up with a a practitioner who specialized in my area of need. We had one consultation and immediately Courtney gave me the confidence that we'd be able to work through my condition.

We started on acupuncture and herbs and within 3 months I was completely healed. I now go once a week to see her, or any of the other fantastic practitioners. I honestly couldn't imagine what would have happened if I had not found these people—they are wonderfully capable and kind and never gave up on me. I am so grateful for everything they've done for me!

I discovered that I set the bar of my health too low

As an IT executive I came in with stress, poor sleep and a huge sugar habit. I was resigned and cynical about my life, yet hopeful that acupuncture might at least help me feel more relaxed and 'stress-free'. With the very first needle I felt an amazing sensation in my body I had never felt before. I had the best night of sleep that night than I'd had in months and I returned to the office without a care in the world.

Jeremy's ability to be present with you, his wisdom and authentic interest in your excellence goes beyond medicine to addressing the core of what is possible for you as a human being regardless of where you are in your life.

Through working with Jeremy I discovered that I set the bar of my health too low. Well-being is not simply the absence of illness—it's a sense of vitality and aliveness. What began with compassionate understanding and a few needles ended up completely transforming my life. Within two years of my initial treatment I resigned as a VP from my company, sold my condo, and moved to Hawaii to study acupuncture and help people find out what it means to be alive, on a individual by individual basis.

Thank you, Jeremy, for the treatment and care that opened me up to my true calling so that I can give back the gift of transforming life and well-being to others.

I can highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture.

From the outset everyone in the group took the time to get things right—whether it was confirming my insurance coverage or setting up my detailed treatment plan. I've worked with Amy, Andrei, and Jeremy and they are all terrific practitioners. I came to Transformational Acupuncture to seek relief from daily/migraine headaches and have had good success in reducing both the frequency and pain level of my headaches.

I am now a big believer in acupuncture!

Melting chronic back pain and stress-induced sciatica.

I have chronic pain in my neck and sciatia that flares up with stress. After each treatment of acupuncture and cupping, I notice a significant decrease in symptoms. Repeat treatments have helped me during times when I can predict stressful events. I really appreciate the professionalism of the practicer at Transformational Acupuncture provides.

A Clinic That Feels Like a Home Away from Home

If you’re looking for the Premier Acupuncture Clinic in Washington D.C., look no further. I’ve been to several acupuncturists over the years to treat conditions ranging from acne to depression to brain trauma to adrenal fatigue. There are tons of acupuncturists out there, most of them are helpful, some of them are able to listen and connect and few are able to do it all. Through Jeremy’s hard work, this clinic has become part of my weekly routine and a place I call home.

You’ll know what I’m talking the minute you walk in. You’ll be greeted at the front with big smiles, followed by a discussion with your acupuncturist to truly understand what’s going on. And then, of course, you’re likely to walk out the door feeling somehow magically better then you did when you arrived. (Whether that’s actually the acupuncture or just Jeremy’s jokes or Nadia’s smile, feeling better by the end is almost guaranteed!). Good luck with your journey, and hope you enjoy the same benefits I’ve been so privileged to receive.

The treatments I've received thus far have been effective.

Jeremy takes care to get to know the whole patient, requiring his clients to submit a thorough questionnaire prior to meeting them, then engaging the client in a detailed conversation about physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of his or her wellbeing prior to giving any acupuncture treatment. The treatments I've received from him thus far have been effective, and should the need arise, I'll certainly be going back to him.

A natural approach to chronic anxiety

I was experiencing persistently high levels of anxiety that made it impossible to handle the regular stresses of daily life. I sought acupuncture because I wanted to avoid having to take medication, as I usually have negative side effects. The treatments were fast and mostly painless, and the staff spent a considerable amount of time getting to know me and learn about my issues and goals for the acupuncture treatment. After my first few sessions of acupuncture, I noticed I was less bothered by things that normally made me anxious. After completing eight sessions of acupuncture, my baseline level of anxiety was much lower and I am now able to manage most days without feeling anxious at all. If I do feel anxious, I recover quickly. Even stressful events at work and home have not affected me as they used to, and I am able to be clear-headed and maintain perspective throughout the day. In fact, I have on several occasions felt a peacefulness that I never before experienced in my life. In conjunction with leading a healthy lifestyle and developing a fit spiritual condition, acupuncture was a critical and transformational element in helping me recover from anxiety.

Acupuncture for persistent peripheral neuropathy

I've had peripheral neuropathy in my right foot for about 12 years & acupuncture has been the only modality of care out there that has ameliorated its symptoms at all. I've also been to a few clinics specializing in this form of treatment & Transformational Acupuncture's service has been far and away superior mostly because its practitioners really take the time to really listen to my biofeedback, positioning themselves to deliver the best results possible. I particularly give a shoutout to Jeremy and Amy who not only pinpoint the needles expertly at the outset but also checkin with me at least once during each session to see if any adjustments need to be made. Beyond that, the staff is extremely friendly & it's really easy to schedule appointments through the company's web portal. Keep up the good work!

A great place for holistic medicine in the heart of DC.

I highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture! I went in seeking treatment for tendinitis in my shoulder. I tried everything from cortisone, physical therapy, and massage therapy to no avail. After my first acupuncture treatment, I noticed an immediate relief to pain and within 10 treatments my pain subsided completely. It has been two months since my last treatment and I am still pain free!  Pricing is fair and the entire staff is awesome!

Affordable acupuncture and a holistic approach to digestive trouble, insomnia, anxiety

I started working with Transformational Acupuncture in October 2014 after my primary care physician recommended that I try a non-Western medicine-based approach to treat my chronic anxiety and ongoing digestive and insomnia issues. As she explained, because various health screenings and short-term prescriptions could only go so far, I would likely benefit from sustained treatment focused on a holistic approach.

Through treatments I have seen a complete transformation in my attitude on handling stress, a near elimination of digestive problems, and a great improvement in sleeping patterns. I feel that I have become a more well-balanced person because of my acupuncture treatments, holistic consults, and the various changes I have incorporated into my lifestyle, which came from the staff’s recommendations. These suggestions ranged from accessing career and mental health oriented resources to starting herbal treatments and incorporating certain exercise and mindful meditation practices all of which have strengthened me.

Significantly, treatments are financially sustainable even when only certain insurance companies cover acupuncture treatments because the prices are not intended to be cost-prohibitive. Beyond the real results I see on a daily basis, I am most grateful for the staff’s friendliness, genuine interest in their clients, and continuing creativity and healing energy. I plan to return again and again and to recommend Transformational Acupuncture's practice to my friends.

Acupuncture to avoid anxiety medication and relieve physical pain

I came to Transformational Acupuncture because I was stressed out from life. My husband had moved out of state for a new job and I was left with cleaning up the house, getting it ready to sell, and put it on the market while working full time. This had been going on for over a year, and I was STRESSED. My shoulder and neck were in knots, and my hair was thinning. The only drug I occasionally took when I was desperate would knock me out for the night and make it difficult to get up in the morning. I was scared of drugs and didn't want to get addicted to them.

It took me 2 months of walking by their sign outside that says "Have you tried acupuncture?", before I thought, "What do I have to lose besides more hair?".

I found the staff to be very understanding and easy to talk to. Even after just the first visit I just felt more mellow, more calm. I've been going for 2 months now, and it is a luxury to just feel better and less stressed. Even my hairdresser said my hair is a little thicker. The extra nice part was that during my visits, they would ask me if I had any pains or problems anywhere else - a little knee pain here, a little arm pain there, a sinus problem that my medical doctor said was "chronic" - they took care of it. I am a firm believer in acupuncture now.

I was also grateful for their pricing and insurance.

I believe the acupuncture was key to my success in getting pregnant and maintaining good health throughout the pregnancy.

I started acupuncture almost a year ago to complement my fertility treatments. It was a wonderful stress relief and helped my body and spirit during a very difficult period. Jeremy is a very positive person to work with. He is knowledgeable about various illnesses and suggests natural solutions for healing. In addition, he is sensitive to concerns and a good listener. I believe the acupuncture was key to my success in getting pregnant and maintaining good health throughout the pregnancy.

Profound source of serenity, balance, and relief from tension headaches/migraines that have plagued me for years.

Transformational Acupuncture has been a profound source of serenity, balance, and relief from tension headaches/migraines that have plagued me for years. After just a few weeks of treatment, I noticed a significant difference in my muscle tension in my shoulders/neck/head, and was headache-free. The sessions are deeply peaceful and healing, and I'm thrilled that the effects have been so noticeable and long-lasting.

Highly recommend this wonderful place and its skilled, attentive practitioners.

Transformation Acupuncture is a local treasure.

Booking is easy, and Nina worked with me to get re-started  quickly when I moved back to DC.

Before moving here, my doctor was a former professor of acupuncture from Shanghai, so I believe I know good acupuncture when I experience it . . . . . My specific issue was an intestinal flare up (IBS).  It was crippling to make it through work, and, since I do contract work, there was additional stress about loosing clients . . Courtney is very gentle and understanding, taking some time to get to know the patients.  She not only took care of the intestinal stress, but added a few points to assuage the psychological stress as well . . . . I have also been with Andrei, who is also excellent . . The facility is clean, peaceful, and convenient.  If you haven't tried acupuncture, this is a great start.

I can’t believe I waited so long to seek this treatment.

I have tried a number of over the counter sleep aids, all of the herbal/nighttime teas I could find to aid in sleeping, exercises, and books. I have normal eating habits, a regular nightly ritual, and healthy relationships. However, prior to my first appointment, I couldn’t remember ever sleeping well. It could take an hour or more before I fell asleep and once I did fall asleep I would wake up countless times throughout the night with difficulty getting back to sleep. Waking up in the morning was painful, literally. After not sleeping at night I had to struggle to get out of bed and make it through the day. I was tired most of the time and had very little energy. My eyes were often red and/or hazy and I lived with discolored skin under my eyes.

After two months of acupuncture treatment, herbal supplements, and a commitment to following a regimen for resolving my sleeping problems, I can’t believe I waited so long to seek this treatment. Gradually my ability to both fall asleep quickly and sleep through the night increased. I began to have more energy and more recently a normal color has returned to my eyes and the skin beneath them. Now it takes me 15-20 minutes to fall asleep at night and if I do wake up at night I rarely have difficulty falling back asleep. The people around me have noticed a difference in my general disposition and my appearance. My husband even says I’m a lot nicer to be around in the mornings!

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.

Wonderful staff, treatments for eczema in a serene space

Transformational Acupuncture was highly recommended by my primary care PA from Medical one group when I was looking for a long term solution for my skin condition, Eczema, for several years and after more than 10 visits here is why I love this place.

Besides very informative emails about what I can do at home the waiting room has a full of books, where I discover "Healing with whole foods" by Paul Pitchford. After reading through the introduction (which explains what and how to eat right) and I decided to get a copy. It is the thickest book I bought since "Webster's Dictionary" but my visits and the book really have helped me more than anything I have tried. The call is coming from inside the house and yes you are what you eat.

Next, the cost - the most important factor. My insurance does not cover for acupuncture treatment because Eczema is not "life threatening" but if you have a skin condition like mine the stress that comes with could really depress you and knowing that any alternative treatment like acupuncture would cost a fortune (least 100 $ and more per a visit) out of my pocket most definitely WILL depress you. Here for the almost same amount of money I get 2 full visits, can't get any better.

Finally, the place is neat and quiet. The people are nice and friendly And I have a big progress report to show, no more itchiness, breakouts/flareups areas got smaller, faster healing, specially less redness on my face, naturally I don't need treatment lotion/cream as much. Not just on my condition itself but also my body as whole, I actually eat food is that good for me therefore wake up with more energy now. For reasonable price I've got something priceless, peace of mind and hope that I can start over, change.

So I thank Transformational Acupuncture.

Transformational Acupuncture has been a fantastic addition to my self care and wellness routine.

My doctor suggested I try acupuncture for my migraines and lower back pain that I have struggled with for years. I have previously used meds and a combination of physically therapy and dry needling to deal with these issues—all which work in their own ways and depending on how much work I put in. A few months ago, I found myself overworked, over-stressed and so muscularly tense I wound up with a three day migraine that meds couldn't cure. I was ready to try an alternative. Enter Transformational Acupuncture.

I have worked with Andrei at least once a week for months and I cant rave about him enough. He is generous with his spirit and healing. We start each session with a quick check-in about how I am feeling—which often leads to suggestions of kombuchas, herbs, books, stretches—to supplement the treatment plan we create. He has been generous enough (and remembers our chats!) to bring me samples of tonics and kombuchas we have discussed in prior sessions. He is incredibly knowledgeable about ancient Chinese medicine, among many other things. I truly feel like he cares and is invested in me getting the best results I can.

The billing team and office are GREAT! They do a fantastic job of communicating via email information about my insurance and benefits. They are delightful to chat with when you check in. The entire office has a relaxing, clean and light atmosphere. I leave each session feeling unbelievably relaxed and recharged. I think the prices are totally in line with others charge across the city and you get a really great end-to-end experience!

I DEFINITELY have and will continue to recommend Transformational Acupuncture to my friends and coworkers. Thank you team for all that you do!!

Could not recommend Transformational Acupuncture more highly!

I went in to fix some lower back pain and to manage moderate sleep apnea and anxiety; I saw a noticeable difference after my first few appointments. The staff is friendly and responsive, and it's always easy to change or reschedule appointments. I mainly see Courtney for my appointments; she's wonderful! Very sweet and professional. But I've seen Jeremy and Amy as well; they communicate with one another regularly so you don't spend time going over the same things. The studio is lovely; clean and welcoming. There's always water and lots of books to browse. They are also incredibly accommodating when it comes to checking to see if insurance covers appointments.

My appointments are quickly becoming the highlight of my week.

I would highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture to anyone who is dealing with chronic pain or just dealing with day to day stress.

When I first came into the office, I was unable to turn my head due to severe neck pain. After two sessions I was able to turn my head, after four I was able to sleep without waking up in pain (something I thought would never go away!)

I have worked with both Jamee and Andrei (both TRULY wonderful). I am so in awe of their knowledge of the human body and their intuitive ability to understand the treatment I need and the root cause of my pain.

I would highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture to anyone who is dealing with chronic pain or just dealing with day to day stress.

I've been seeing Jeremy every month now for the past 2 years and it's been life changing.

I have a Type A personality and am always on the go. I constantly feel I need to be productive and have a hard time relaxing. Additionally, I studied psychology in college and feel that psychological therapy is good for everyone (whether you need help or not) to receive a professionally, unbiased opinion on one's life and have the opportunity to vent. I'm originally from New York City and when I moved here, I hadn't found a therapist that I enjoyed seeing. Therefore, a friend of mine who was a patient of Jeremy's suggested I see Jeremy for the 1 hour therapeutic session which includes 30 minutes of private conversation then 30 minutes on the acupuncture table. I honestly never thought to do acupuncture (I thought it was too "hipster" for me); however, BOY was I wrong! I've been seeing Jeremy every month now for the past 2 years and it's been life changing. It allows me the opportunity to vent about life and then actually take the time to relax and be in my own thoughts while I'm on the table. My body and mind also feels incredible after each session.

I would highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture to anyone!

I feel back in control of my health and well-being.

When I first to came to see Jeremy, I was a mess. As law student I find myself under large amounts of stress and difficult time constraints, sometimes for months at a time. Anxiety and restlessness had become a part of my daily life. After working with Jeremy, the treatments, herbal medicines, and most importantly Jeremy’s compassion together have brought a sense of calm to my life. Most importantly, I feel back in control of my health and well-being. I am so thankful to Jeremy for all his skill and devotion to the healing arts.

Holistic health counseling provides tools for and relief from stress and anxiety

I started seeing Jeremy in June and had a lot of stress related to work which disrupted my focus and sleep. During our sessions, which were a combination of coaching/therapy and acupuncture, he taught me how to work through my stress in healthy and sustainable ways. In the past I've used exercise as a coping mechanism for stress, which has always helped and still does, but a few hours after a workout, the stress and endless thoughts/anxiety come back. Exercise hasn't been a sustainable way for me to handle my stress. After working with Jeremy for about 3 months, I successfully gained the tools to not allow my thoughts to overpower me or affect my health. When I get anxious or stressed, I know how to relax and refocus. Transformational acupuncture with Jeremy has had a great impact on my long-term health and regular acupuncture (which I've tried before) has never helped me get the same level of results. I can't recommend this practice enough. If you work with Jeremy, take his regiment seriously and commit to your mental and physical long-term health, you will undoubtedly succeed.

The facility is clean, calming, friendly and I have never had a negative experience.

I have been to Transformational Acupuncture multiple times for a variety of issues related to back pain, inflammation and/or injuries related to running. I usually see Andrei, but have had one treatment session with Amy as Andrei wasn't working the day I scheduled to come in. The facility is clean, calming, friendly and I have never had a negative experience.

Beyond acupuncture, Andrei is attentive in sharing other techniques to promote healing through various stretches, herbal supplements and even recommended a body work studio where I continue to go to regularly.

I find it best to seek multiple treatments relatively 2 days apart in order to get the maximum benefit of acupuncture. It is a great option for sport related injuries to expedite healing.

I would definitely recommend them—and have—to people looking for treatment.

I work in a very high-stress environment so I use this as a way to keep my self balance in my body in harmony.

I am a little hesitant writing this because I want to keep this little gem a secret but if it can help others as much as it is helping me, the least I can do is write this. My wife had been encouraging me to try accupuncture and I was skeptical but I finally reached a point to give it a try. It takes a few sessions for your body to get used to it, but once you do, it leaves you feeling very balanced. I work in a very high-stress environment so I use this as a way to keep my self balance in my body in harmony. I have now switched to monthly and plan to continue.  Definitely would recommend this practice. I have tried every single one of the practitioners and each one is great at what they do.

I tried acupuncture a couple of times in the past and never felt it made much difference with my chronic and disabling health conditions. But my insurance (BCBS) covers treatments and I'm reaching the I'm-desperate-and-will-try-anything stage, so figured I'd give it another go. I knew nothing about any of the practitioners on my insurance panel, so tried running the names through Google at random. Came across Jeremy and liked the background story on his website (so many medical professionals don't even HAVE a website, and I'm just more comfortable when I can read up a bit beforehand). So I made an appointment and gave it a shot.

I have been going once a week for several months now, so I've gotten a pretty good feel for Jeremy as a practitioner. And I think he's just the greatest! On the acupuncture front, I usually walk in with a headache and out without one, and we're working on building up other health systems over time. It's a process, but I really do believe his treatments are making a measurable difference.

But beyond the acupuncture itself, Jeremy is an excellent health coach. At each appointment, we discuss my current health challenges and what I might do to address them, and I appreciate the fact that he's encouraging with ideas but also realistic about my limitations. He always checks my reaction, and never pushes his own ideas onto me. He's a guide and not a drill sargeant. Overall, highly recommended.

Overcoming insomnia

I started coming to Transformational Acupuncture after suffering for several months from insomnia. I had gotten good benefits from acupuncture in the past for other issues and after realizing my sleep just wasn’t getting any better, decided to see if acupuncture would help. After a few months my sleep has returned to normal, and I believe acupuncture has been instrumental in resolving the issue. The practitioners at Transformational Acupuncture are good people, who care tremendously about their clients, and are enthusiastic about what they do. They also make it very easy to access insurance benefits if you have them and strive to keeps costs affordable if you don’t. I have recommended Transformational Acupuncture to friends and continue to go biweekly as a way to maintain my general health.

A vital part of my self care

For years, I have been curious about the potential benefits of acupuncture for my well-being, but it wasn’t until I developed a persistent back pain that I actively searched out a place in which I would have the confidence and ease to give it a try. Transformational Acupuncture offered and provided the professionalism, patience, openness and care that I needed to embrace this age-old yet cutting-edge therapy as one important way to achieve and maintain optimal health. The therapists instill trust and reassurance through their careful interaction, clear instructions and astute intuitiveness. I feel invited to ask questions and seek guidance without feeling that I am being pressured to do anything that would make me uncomfortable. I rely on their services as a vital part of my own self-care. I urge others to explore what can be achieved by incorporating into their own health regimen the services—and wisdom!—which Transformational Acupuncture offers.

I was new to acupuncture and Jeremy instantly put me at ease.

I came to Jeremy with a hamstring injury that I developed while running. I was new to acupuncture and Jeremy instantly put me at ease. It seems to me that successful treatment is pretty dependent on good rapport and communication with your acupuncturist, and Jeremy excels in this regard. After 4 treatments, my hamstring is now pain-free. In addition to providing great treatments, he also had several other strategies to help me stay healthy and injury-free long-term. I liked his holistic approach.

I've been to acupuncture elsewhere and I prefer this clinic hands-down.

The acupuncturists here are all really good at what they do.  They also make it easy to schedule online, so if you're a last-minute person like me you can even just book the day before and see whoever is available.  It's a very collaborative environment, so they all work together and it's never weird to just see whoever's available.  All of them are terrific.  Not only have I seen results from each session, but  the practitioners are also really good at explaining what they're doing and why, which I appreciate a lot.  Personally, I've seen Marianna, Andrei, and Courtney and all three were highly skilled and really nice.  A friend had great results with Jeremy, too.

I guess I'd break down my reasons for recommending this clinic into three groups:

First, results: since that's probably what you're most concerned about. They really are great at what they do!  I definitely noticed a difference from the treatment.  It also speaks really highly of them that they're so willing and able to answer all the questions I'm constantly asking - I can tell they really know their stuff.

They'll listen to what's going on, especially in the first consult, and then come up with a treatment plan.  Every time I go, they check in and ask how things are going, what's working / what's not, etc.  You do need to be open with them since acupuncture requires clear communication between the acupuncturist and the patient, but they make it easy here because they're all really nice and easy to talk to.  If you've never tried acupuncture, this is a great place to give it a try.  They'll definitely make you feel comfortable and they're also very good so you'll probably notice results quickly!

Second, it's a well run business.  Like I mentioned above, it's really easy to schedule and they've been really nice when I had to call to change an appointment, too.  They handle insurance well and generally just make everything feel easy.

And third, it's a great community.  Everyone is really nice and the whole place feels like a tranquil retreat from daily life.  Like others have said, don't be put off by the fact that you need to walk through the Hair Cuttery entrance to get there.  The fact that such a great little oasis is hidden above that place just adds to the charm.

Overall, highly recommended!  You can really see anyone here and be confident you'll get a great treatment.  I've been to acupuncture elsewhere and I prefer this clinic hands-down.

We look forward to a session with Jeremy knowing that he will help us to create a sense of inner peace.

The acupuncture sessions with Jeremy have helped both my wife and I through a very difficult time in our lives. It has helped to return us to a sense of balance. Time and again he has offered non-judgmental insightful advice. Our time with Jeremy has helped us to question our original thought patterns and begin the process of changing us into the people we want to become. Jeremy truly listens and conveys a strong sense of empathy and compassion. We look forward to a session with Jeremy knowing that he will help us to create a sense of inner peace.

I went to Transformational Acupuncture weekly for about 6 months, and absolutely loved the clinic. It was the third clinic I tried in the city.

I booked with several different therapists, all of whom were really friendly and professional, and put me at ease discussing my condition. I began going for digestive discomfort, and carried on long after it was under control, as I really valued the stress relief and the time to myself each week.

At that time there was a meditation discussion group which I attended regularly too. I would get there early to read the books in the waiting room, and the facilities were always extremely clean. I also really appreciated that the whole team greeted me by name, so I didn't feel like just another "body" to be treated. The team have done a great job of creating a friendly, calm atmosphere. I would still be going if I hadn't moved away.

Highly recommend.

I don't even know how to begin describing how amazing Transformational Acupuncture is.

I don't even know how to begin describing how amazing Transformational Acupuncture is. There simply aren't enough superlatives in the English language! I had been going to acupuncture for a year before switching to this clinic and I'm so happy I did. Everyone is so warm, friendly, and inviting and the ambiance in the space is tranquil and calming -- the perfect place for healing physically and emotionally.

I go to Marianna and to say that she works miracles is the understatement of the century! She is so knowledgeable, caring, and skilled. She also prescribed Chinese herbs for some of my issues and it has absolutely changed my life. I have sessions several times a week and they have become a sacred part of my self-care ritual.

Not only that, it's super easy to submit your health history and insurance forms through the website as a new patient and booking appointments online is a breeze. I also love that I can always find parking, which makes getting to the clinic way less stressful. They have gift cards, too -- holiday shopping just got way easier for me! 😉

Also, shout-out to Erin who is the loveliest front desk hostess!

I tell everyone who will listen (even random strangers!) about this place. Stop what you're doing immediately and go to Transformational Acupuncture!

I have been going to Transformational Acupuncture for severe ankle pain.

After going to doctors and seeing little results, I tried acupuncture.  Both Andre and Courtney have been amazing.  They have subsided my pain a great deal.  Andre also does healing energy exercises and has offered me great advice about diet as well.  He really cares about his patients (along with Courtney) and takes the extra time to answer questions. I highly recommend.

For my first venture into the Acupuncture world I feel I have placed myself in great hands.

In all honesty I have no idea how acupuncture works. I suffer from stress/anxiety as well as very mild depression. I have tried pretty much all the routes modern medicine can take one on in treatment of these conditions to no avail. (I lie. I was successful in gaining 20 pounds from the antidepressants.)

I came across an article that stated acupuncture was found to be successful in treating my ailments and thought I'd give it a try. After the first treatment I noticed my energy and my outlook were a little higher and brighter. Again, I have no idea how this really work in the body but somehow it has seem to work for me.

The folks at Transformational Acupuncture are very professional, personable, and welcoming. For my first venture into the Acupuncture world I feel I have placed myself in great hands. I highly recommend giving them a try!

I have never done acupuncture before and I wish I would have discovered it a lot sooner.

I have already had 9 appointments at Transformational Acupuncture and every visit has been great. I have seen every acupuncturist except for one, and they have all been fantastic! Don't let having to walk through the Hair Cuttery deter you. The space is welcoming and quiet (especially if you are in the rooms on the right of where you walk in). Each practitioner sits with you to discuss your concerns before each appointment, and it's a seamless transition if you see different people for your appointments. Booking online makes it super easy to schedule everything and they do a thorough job of explaining your benefits (if your insurance provides coverage).

The treatment rooms are private, but you can hear the person next to you since it's not a full wall to the ceiling. I haven't found this a problem at all other than the occasional person who falls asleep and snores, and when someone is done with their appointment, you can hear the crinkling of the paper on the tables. For me—it's not a bother but may be to some so I wanted to mention it.

As for the treatment itself—it really helps me manage my mood and stress unlike anything else I have tried. After every appointment I feel relaxed and centered.

I highly recommend this place!!

Jeremy spoke with me about some daily things I could do which would help with my overall health.

Jeremy helped me with a health issue I had been experiencing for about a year which my doctor and a specialist weren't able to successfully treat. The issue isn't completely resolved but it has improved more than it had with previous treatments. More importantly, though, Jeremy spoke with me about some daily things I could do, including dietary suggestions and supplements, which would help with overall health and help resolve the issue. I had also been experiencing a high level of stress at the time I was seeing  Jeremy for acupuncture, and he inquired respectfully and not intrusively about the issues causing the stress when I would meet with him.  He always offered practical, thoughtful solutions and his advice has helped.  Finally, I had a tricky schedule and he was willing to work with me to find a time to have our sessions, and that was greatly appreciated.

Relief from debilitating menstrual pain

I started visiting Transformational Acupuncture almost a year ago for severe, debilitating menstrual pain after visiting several gynecologists and being told the same thing--that my only option was hormonal therapy. After my first acupuncture treatment with Courtney, the debilitating pain that I'd endured subsided, and this was pain that was unresponsive to oral pain relief medications. I have had the most encouraging and uplifting experience with Transformational Acupuncture, feeling so relieved knowing that there is a treatment I feel comfortable with that is effective, and practitioners who validate my pain experience and preferences for healing.

Transformational Acupuncture is truly a healing sanctuary!

After dealing with multiple chiropractors and PTs over the course of 6 months to try and fix a lower back/SI joint chronic issue, I happened upon TA. I thought I would give acupuncture a try after exhausting other forms of treatment because I was still suffer daily from pain. Upon entering the clinic, you are immediately transformed, as the environment itself is calm and peaceful, and the friendly and warm faces are there to greet you. After just one treatment with Andrei, I experienced a profound relief from the pain I'd been suffering for so long.

I have continued my acupuncture treatments to reduce my pain and also added in herbal medicine to combat insomnia, stress, etc. I can't express how grateful I am to have found Transformational Acupuncture.

All sessions have been beneficial on many levels and I will certainly be a regular.

My acupuncturist retired and transformational acupuncture is conveniently located so I made an appointment. Andrei Stoica is my new man with the needles. He has admirable listening and intuition skills plus his artful touch of placing the needles is gentle and focused. All sessions have been beneficial on many levels and I will certainly be a regular. I am grateful to have Andrei as my new acupuncturist.

Relief from pain and numbness due to spinal stenosis, wonderful ambiance

First walking into the space (practice) I got a sense of light. The reception and waiting area open a thought for herbals and reading. Joe, with open eyes asked my reason for treatment. I have spinal stenosis and have been undergoing unusually severe episodes of pain radiating to electric shocks down my right leg and experiencing numbness in the right foot. His treatments have brought relief, a feeling of 'quieting' the source of pain.

Acupuncture for exhaustion, chronic fatigue and the associated physical effects

After a year of working full-time and attending graduate school part-time, my body became so weighed down by stress that it basically stopped working. I had mono in college, and that’s exactly what this felt like. From roughly April to August, I was constantly exhausted. I couldn’t exercise, I could barely function at work (if I could show up at all), and my social life came to a standstill.

I saw several doctors over the summer, and I was tested for everything from mono and Lyme Disease to hypothyroidism and diabetes. Everything came back negative, so they sent me home without any guidance or help. A friend of mine suggested I try acupuncture, so I scheduled my first appointment with Jeremy in late August.
<br><br>
It’s difficult to describe the change I felt. It wasn’t sudden, like you would experience from popping a pill. I can’t say I noticed anything in particular my first time, but on my third visit, I fell asleep on the table. When I woke up, I felt a calm in the center of my chest that I’ve only felt once or twice in my life. It stayed with me for the rest of the day, and over the next few weeks, I began to notice that along with increased energy, I was much more capable of handling stress—which seemed to be a major factor contributing to my fatigue in the first place.

I’ve been going to the clinic for about three months now, and my body has steadily gotten stronger in that time. I haven’t felt the debilitating fatigue come on since I started my treatment, and I have no doubt that this is in large part because of acupuncture.

The reason I survived my freshman year

Jeremy is—no joke—the reason I survived my freshman year of college. He helped me with everything from wonky digestion, anxiety, insomnia, nausea, and unwanted weight loss to two bouts of pneumonia. Transformational Acupuncture is my oasis of calm/my happy place; upcoming appointments on my Gcal give me something to work towards on late nights at the library. Everyone at Transformational Acupuncture is so passionate, empathetic, knowledgeable, and transparent.

Acupuncture was my last hope for unusual symptoms... and it worked!

I have been going to Transformational Acupuncture and seeing Jeremy for treatment for the past five months. Before seeing Jeremy, I had reached a low with my health and was struggling to find answers and solutions. I went to numerous doctors – a rheumatologist, a cardiologist, a pulmonologist, etc. – and was unable to find any assistance with my symptoms. Instead, each doctor passed me off to another and did not take the time to listen to what I was saying or give credence to the pain I was feeling.

Many of the doctors negated my pain and symptoms and insinuated that I probably just had anxiety and should see a therapist. Meanwhile, my symptoms – muscle pain, headaches, nausea, shortness of breath, fatigue, eye pain – became increasingly difficult to cope with.

For me, acupuncture felt like my last hope after I had exhausted the resources of Western medicine and came up empty-handed. Thankfully, my first appointment with Jeremy made me feel like I had finally chosen the right path for addressing my health issues. Jeremy truly listens to his patients and seeks to understand their needs and struggles, physically and emotionally.

After only a few weeks of acupuncture treatment, I was already beginning to feel a difference and the intensity of the pain was lessening. Over the course of the treatment, I have seen many of my symptoms disappear completely and I feel much more resilient in my ability to cope with any symptoms that do recur. I no longer feel like every day is a struggle to get through as I did for about a year before seeing Jeremy. My experience with Transformational Acupuncture, and with Jeremy specifically, has been more fulfilling than I can truly convey in words.

This is the nicest Acupuncturist studio in the city.

Everyone is absolutely lovely. Nadia is a gem at the front. She just gets people. I have seen Jeremy, Andrei, Courtney and Amy. You can really see anyone as they communicate with one another regularly. I love them all. If you have chronic pain, migraines or just want to feel better, this is the place for you. Also, there hours are quite appealing for someone who works during the day.

One thing is for sure, this acupuncture studio is transformational.

Relief from menopause symptoms—no more hot flashes & brain fog!

I feel the 5-week acupuncture treatment that I received at Transformational Acupuncture was extremely beneficial. I had a series of issues which were making it difficult to fully function at work and at home. I am menopausal and the hormone spikes were causing me to suffer from hot flashes, fatigue, sleeplessness, and brain fog. My symptoms have vastly improved. For example, my mind feels much sharper and my memory is improved. My hot flashes disappeared--which is a blessing during the DC summer.

Jeremy would meet with me before each treatment session to assess my progress, which made me feel that I was being treated as an individual, and not just a number.

Thank you! I feel like I can deal with life again.

Jeremy is a miracle worker.

Jeremy is a miracle worker. My foot was killing me. I was on crutches and my regular doctors were nonplussed. After a few sessions with Jeremy I was running around DC again. Even after my foot healed I continue to see him regularly. Our sessions help center and balance me. I have worked through some complex and difficult emotional problems talking to Jeremy. I sleep better, am better equipped to confront any issues I encounter and I stress out a whole lot less. I highly recommend him.

During the 5 sessions I worked with Jeremy, I felt as if—truly—he was a magician of some sort.

Absolutely life-changing

Transformational Acupuncture has been life changing. Since starting treatments five months ago, I am the most consistently happy and euphoric that I have been since high school. I feel like the best version of myself as a wife, daughter, sister, friend, employee and listener. Multiple advancements and successes in my career--which I've been wanting for years--have happened since starting acupuncture. Best of all, I am excited about the present and the future and have the least anxiety I have felt in years. I am so grateful to the team at Transformational Acupuncture for helping me be the person I've wanted to be.

As a new patient of acupuncture, the staff made me feel right at home: the setting is serene and calming, and the attention to patients is first class.

This was my first acupuncture experience, and I'll admit I was skeptical going in.

The studio is clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly, professional, and kind, and they introduced me to acupuncture in a way that was supportive and instructive. I'm now a true believer.

After the first treatment the pain was reduced drastically...

I went to Jeremy with severe upper back and shoulder pain that had lasted for 8 months, my pain was a constant 7-9/10. I had tried almost every modern treatment available to no avail before I turned to Eastern medicine. After the first treatment the pain was reduced drastically, after several treatments I could use my arm again! My chiropractor believes that without Jeremy's treatment I would have continued to struggle in my recovery. However since my treatment I am well on my way to a full recovery. Jeremy is great to work with, he worked around my busy schedule and I could tell he truly cares about healing you. I would recommend him any day and am proof that ancient medicine can work where modern medicine fails.

Getting off of prescription meds for seasonal allergies

I came to Transformational acupuncture a few months ago seeking a remedy for my dreadful seasonal allergies. Every summer I experience nonstop symptoms of congestion that make it nearly impossible to focus on anything else. As a result I often took several Benadryl's a day, trying to lessen my symptoms but leaving me drowsy in the process. Finally fed up and with nothing to loose I decided to give acupuncture a try. After my first community acupuncture session my symptoms immediately stopped and I haven't experienced them since. It took me only a couple visits to ensure my symptoms wouldn't come back and I can now live my life in peace without constantly worrying about my allergies. The results far exceeded what I expected and I am only upset I waited so long to give acupuncture a try. Thanks.

Transformational Acupuncture gets 5 stars for the facility, location, and expert practitioners.

I started coming to Transformational Acupuncture for treatment for a variety of issues because I heard from friends and colleagues that acupuncture was effective, even though I was skeptical that it would actually work for me. It ended up being extremely helpful.

I was seeking treatment for a range of chronic issues, where medications were helping to some degree, but not completely. I started noticing results fairly early on in the treatment for some issues, while some took longer to treat.

I've been coming here once a week or every other week for approximately 1 year and I consider it an important part of my health regimen. If you have not done acupuncture before, it's important you know that it's not something that you notice quickly and drastically. For me, its effectiveness built up over time and the effects were gradual.

Transformational Acupuncture gets 5 stars for the facility, location, and expert practitioners. I have been treated by Courtney, Andrei, and Jeremy. (I switch practitioners because my schedule changes frequently.) One thing that stands out about this place is that all of the practitioners meet together regularly to coordinate and develop a plan for each client. So, I could be treated by Courtney one week, and Andrei the next, and they will have a discussion about what type of treatment would be best or what adjustment might be needed for me. I find this to be very valuable because it's important for whoever I work with to fully understand my situation. I have not worked with Amy yet, but I'm confident that her level of expertise is comparable to the others.

All of the practitioners have been really helpful, and it is clear that they are all very experienced with acupuncture, and also with a range of other holistic treatments and alternative medicine, as well as an understanding of western medicine and approaches. I appreciate that they try to get an idea of the complete picture to develop a treatment. The admin staff are also very helpful and pleasant, and try to accommodate scheduling challenges (and I have them often). I recommend getting an insurance policy that covers this treatment if you intend to make it a regular part of your life, because it gets expensive if you're paying out of pocket. The admin staff are very helpful in talking this through with clients. I highly recommend this place, and have referred/will continue to refer friends of mine here for treatment.

I can't say enough positive things about the services at Transformational Acupuncture

I've been going to Transformational Acupuncture weekly since January and am absolutely hooked! I initially opted to try acupuncture to treat a ganglion cyst on my wrist. I teach and practice yoga frequently and my orthopedist was insistent that the cyst was not related to yoga or the amount of time I spent putting pressure on my wrists. I had a friend with a similar issue who had had some success with acupuncture so I decided to try it.

From the start, staff at Transformational Acupuncture made me feel welcome and provided clear, detailed information about services available. They worked with me to break down which services are covered by my insurance, what my copay would be, etc.

I typically see Courtney for my treatments and she is truly lovely. She listens to my updates about my wrist each week and offers suggestions about stretches or adjustments to try in conjunction with acupuncture treatment. She answers all of my questions and creates a safe, calm space within the treatment room. Since beginning acupuncture my cyst has dissolved and I have developed more mobility in both wrists. Additionally, Courtney has used acupuncture to address an old knee injury that still bothers me at times and we are working through some tension in my back. I tried cupping about a month ago and can't wait to have another session to continue to break up said tension in my back.

I can't say enough positive things about the services at Transformational Acupuncture—I truly look forward to my appointments each week and am grateful to have a new component to my wellness routine.

Please try Transformational Acupuncture.

My husband bought me a gift certificate for Christmas—I wonder if he was trying to tell me something with the Transformational part? 🙂  I lead a life typical of the stressed-out-of-Washington DC. So I went into acupuncture not for relief from aches or pains but to focus and press forward during a transitional phase in my life.  I left the first session so relaxed I could hardly find my way home.  A sustained set of sessions plus an occasional refresher (a real treat) has reset for the better the way I notice and respond to things.

This is not an experience that grabs you by the lapels or hits you over the head.  It just cools the river as you wade along.  And so it is beyond important.  I am very glad that I gave it a try.

Fantastic practice that has a team of very talented, dedicated practitioners.

Transformational Acupuncture provides a caring, "white-glove" approach to its service. I was fortunate enough to work primarily with Jeremy, and he was thoughtful in taking time to understand my issues and then creating a treatment plan to address it. From an experience perspective, I could not have been more pleased, nor could it have been easier.

As a patient you're able to schedule your appointments online. Once at the office, you are seen quickly and the entire team is very respectful of your time; however, you NEVER feel rushed. Every moment felt as though I had an entire team dedicated to just me. The entire experience was easy, thoughtful, calming, and meaningful.

I highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture for anyone looking for a legit, professional, and high skilled acupuncture practice.

Unblocked mental state, better sleep and digestion, fewer sugar cravings

If you've never tried acupuncture before, I would highly recommend the entire team of acupuncturists at Transformational Acupuncture. I was a bit nervous initially coming in (especially with a phobia of needles!) and Courtney put me completely at ease and explained the entire process. She has been an amazing person to have on my side while I healed from a foot injury and treats you as a whole person.

Even though I tried acupuncture to help speed the healing of an injury, I also came out feeling rejuvenated mentally. I had been feeling blocked for a few months and saw a huge change in my mental state in just 1-2 treatments. I also started sleeping better, have had improved digestion, and fewer sugar cravings. I think acupuncture is key to staying healthy and balanced.

I've been to Transformational Acupuncture 4 times so far, and each time has been great. The staff are friendly, helpful, and professional, the location is convenient, the space is clean and tranquil, and the scheduling is easy. Most importantly, my acupuncturist has been proactive about creating a plan that centers on my needs when I walk in, and I've been experiencing relief after each session. Based on my experiences thus far, I'd highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture, and Jamee (he's my awesome acupuncturist) in particular. Just please don't take all his appointment slots!

Highly effective for chronic neck and shoulder pain

The name for "Transformational Acupuncture" was well chosen. I tried the clinic for chronic neck and shoulder pain that simply did not respond to "ordinary" treatment. Three sessions later, the pain was gone, and I have not had a single twinge in six months. So, when the joint and tendons in my elbow began to cause me pain and limited movement, I went back. Three more sessions, and I have full, pain free movement.

I don't begin to understand how it works, but I can say without hesitation that it was an experience that has made me ask a lot of questions about the best way to health. The clinic is inviting and supportive, run by genuinely kind people who are concerned about their clients. I am a very big fan.

I was so relaxed on the table I'm sure I was snoring. Sorry everyone else!

Clean and professional—very on-time. I was having some respiratory problems and I often go to an acupuncturist to clear them up. I think the change in temperature was exacerbating my reactive airways disease.

I easily scheduled an appointment. The clientele was very DC - young professionals. The lobby is very clean and modern. I had a short conversation with my acupuncturist, who I felt understood my needs and was very attentive. I was so relaxed on the table I'm sure I was snoring. Sorry everyone else!

Anyway, long story short, my cough is gone and I really like this place. Would go back.

Jeremy possesses all the traits you would hope for in a health care practitioner.

Jeremy possesses all the traits you would hope for in a health care practitioner—he's caring and supportive as well as knowledgeable and skilled.

When my psychiatrist recommended that I try acupuncture for depression, I was surprised, but the referral to Jeremy has proven more helpful than any of the SSRIs I've been on. Over a few months not only has my mood lifted dramatically, but Jeremy's been an excellent counselor as well, helping me organize and discipline my life so as to put to good use the greater energy and hope I now have.

I also have a serious lower-back injury that has been greatly helped by treatment—I literally have walked in limping and out with a spring in my step, and the results have been lasting as well as immediate.

The adjective "Transformational" is well-chosen. The treatments in and of themselves are very helpful, and if you're willing to put in the effort for the full holistic healing approach (counseling, herbs, healthy diet), working with Jeremy truly can change your life.

I used to get about 7-10 migraines with aura per year, but in the year I've been doing acupuncture, I haven't gotten any!

I started coming to Transformational Acupuncture because I was looking for a way to reduce migraines and help deal with anxiety I was experiencing after a recent serious medical issue. I used to get about 7-10 migraines with aura per year, but in the year I've been doing acupuncture, I haven't gotten any! Acupuncture has also been extremely effective for my anxiety; within a few weeks, I found that I was much less anxious. I mainly see Courtney but have also seen Andrei, Jeremy, and Amy, and they are all wonderful. They're all very easy to talk to and have a nice, gentle approach. I've already told a few friends about Transformational Acupuncture and can't recommend them highly enough!

Very professional, friendly, and wonderful healing center

I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from different practitioners over a period of thirty years with mixed results.

I have now had appointments both with Jeremy Reisenfeld and then Jamee Pineda and the plan was to treat specific pain issues and provide overall support. The results have been very impressive with both immediate relief and a clear benefit to my overall well being. I appreciate finding numerous resources in one clinic, the very professional yet friendly attitude of the entire staff and the wonderful healing center that they have created. I am so pleased to have found them.

If you're looking for the Premier Acupuncture Clinic in Washington D.C., look no further.

I've been to several acupuncturists over the years to treat conditions ranging from acne to depression to brain trauma to adrenal fatigue.  There are tons of acupuncturists out there, most of them are helpful, some of them are able to listen and connect and few are able to do it all.  Through Jeremy's hard work, this clinic has become part of my weekly routine and a place I call home.  You'll know what I'm talking the minute you walk in.  You'll be greeted at the front with big smiles, followed by a discussion with your acupuncturist to truly understand what's going on.  And then, of course, you're likely to walk out the door feeling somehow magically better then you did when you arrived.  (Whether that's actually the acupuncture or just Jeremy's jokes or Nadia's smile, feeling better by the end is almost guaranteed!). Good luck with your journey, and hope you enjoy the same benefits I've been so privileged to receive.

I have had a great experience with Transformational Acupuncture.

I originally sought treatment for a weakened immune system and through weekly sessions of acupuncture and prescribed herbs, my health has significantly improved. I primarily work with Amy Babb, who has been committed to understanding my needs and making adjustments as we progress. Since working with her, I have successfully treated a sinus infection through acupuncture and herbs, as opposed to antibiotics.

I would highly recommend this practice.

A Comprehensive Approach to Stress and Anxiety

I came to Transformational Acupuncture seeking treatment for muscle twitches and general stress and anxiety. Courtney worked with me to address this through a combination of consultations and acupuncture treatments. After just a few sessions, I began to notice the positive effects. I felt more relaxed during and after the treatments -- as well as in my day-to-day life. The muscle twitches also largely subsided. In addition, Courtney worked with me to develop techniques for shifting patterns of activity and thinking that were driving stress. Over the course of several months, there has been a marked shift: I have arrived at a more balanced daily routine and overall state of mind and body.

Beyond the treatments, the entire staff has been very welcoming and friendly, making for a great overall experience. The facility is top-notch, the atmosphere is relaxing, and the location is very accessible. I highly recommend it.

Carpal Tunnel and 3 Years of Sciatica Pain Gone!

My doctor recommended Transformational Acupuncture to me to treat my sciatica, which I'd been struggling with for three years. At first I was skeptical and a bit upset—my sciatica was giving me such pain I was waking up at night from it. But I was desperate and I thought to give Transformational a try. It was the first time I had ever tried acupuncture and the whole experience was completely new for me -- including a session where a practitioner looked at my tongue and told me to avoid certain types of foods. But you know what? The acupuncture worked. After three sessions my sciatica was completely gone. Three years of pain, gone in three sessions. I was a believer!

I came back for treatment a few years later for my carpal tunnel syndrome. I had read an NIH study saying that acupuncture was a great treatment for it, and also got the blessing of an orthopedic surgeon. I went for four sessions including body work. I believe that this, in tandem with using a wrist brace at night, has helped minimize my carpal tunnel pain completely.

In addition to healing my pain, Transformational Acupuncture has a friendly staff, a tranquil environment and concerned practitioners. I would recommend it to anyone -- even if people just want to go for some rest and relaxation.

I am grateful for the amazing way you hold yourself in the treatment room—not once did I feel judged or silly.

Dear Jeremy, I am so thankful that you have served as my acupuncture practitioner for the past five months now. I can't thank you enough for your guidance, support, encouragement, and advice over this time. Not only have my initial concerns been addressed and corrected, but you have also helped me in ways I did not expect.

Since receiving treatment with you, my appetite has returned; not just my physical appetite, but my appetite for life as well. I had been feeling so uninspired and dispassionate, and through treatment with you as well as through other actions of mine, my zest and excitement for life has returned. I am also eating better and making better food choices for myself.

In addition, I have experienced much more ease with life since starting treatment with you. I will never forget the day you told me that my thoughts are not personal. Since that moment, I have experienced such freedom from the mental traps into which I fall so frequently. Whenever I observe myself getting caught up in my thoughts or mental judgments of myself, I remember our conversation, and simply let the thoughts go.

So, thank you, Jeremy, for your listening, your presence, and your willingness to partner with me on my journey. I am grateful for the amazing way you hold yourself in the treatment room—not once did I feel judged or silly. You are truly a gifted practitioner.

It's difficult to write this review because there is so much about Transformational Acupuncture that i love.

I've been going to them for about 5-6 months now to help with chronic pain and trauma and every visit has been a wonderful experience. It truly feels like a safe haven in the city and I look forward to my appointments every week. Nina and Nadia are incredibly kind, welcoming and helpful especially when it comes to navigating health insurance issues. I primarily see Courtney and she has been so much more than just an acupuncturist, she takes the time to hear about my concerns and provide me with tips or suggestions and never questions what I'm feeling or experiencing. Courtney and Jeremy both make it exceedingly clear that they really care about you and your wellbeing and that's something that I had never experienced in the world of western medicine doctors. I am finally beginning to experience some relief from my symptoms and I have hope that I will continue to heal with the help of the amazing people at Transformational Acupuncture!

Jeremy is a skilled and deeply compassionate practitioner; I recommend him highly.

Not only is Jeremy well-studied and practiced, and a font of information, he also has an innate gift for healing that can't be learned. He listens, processes, and always offers me more than one approach to addressing whatever is going on in my mind or body on a given day—whether it's a momentary ailment or a long-term issue he's helping me work through. Jeremy is a skilled and deeply compassionate practitioner; I recommend him highly.

Post-concussion pain relief—and fast!

I came to Transformational Acupuncture with post-concussion symptoms after struggling to find a way to deal with the pain. I was fairly skeptical of acupuncture in general, but I worked with Jeremy and saw results immediately. I only did three treatments, but they helped me with short-term pain-relief to help me get through my days. In addition, everyone there was very welcoming and friendly at the office. I would recommend the practice to anyone

The acupuncture sessions with Jeremy have helped both my wife and I through a very difficult time in our lives.

It has helped to return us to a sense of balance. Time and again he has offered non-judgmental insightful advice. Our time with Jeremy has helped us to question our original thought patterns and begin the process of changing us into the people we want to become. Jeremy truly listens and conveys a strong sense of empathy and compassion. We look forward to a session with Jeremy knowing that he will help us to create a sense of inner peace.

I've had a wonderful experience all around at Transformational Acupuncture.

I have been impressed with the attention to detail and truly holistic individualized care—whether you want relief of a specific symptom, or you want to achieve overall physical, mental and energetic wellness and balance. The staff are all professional, warm, caring and highly skilled. The model of care is streamlined, efficient, modern, and allows for flexibility with extensive hours available. You can chose to work with one clinician each visit, or switch between all of them in order to schedule sessions at the most convenient times for you. The space is modern, clean, beautiful and relaxing.

If you're looking for affordable and high quality acupuncture in DC or want to try it for the first time I highly recommend Transformational Acupuncture.

Immune support, chronic stress & anxiety

I really enjoy going to acupuncture at Transformational Acupuncture. I have been hooked on acupuncture since 2011. I took a break for a year or so because of graduate school (slim funds). I was in really bad shape (stress, bad immune system, nightmares) and tried a new acupuncturist. My stress and anxiety was getting worse and I decided to try Transformational Acupuncture. (Bonus: Transformational Acupuncture takes health insurance.) Courtney is great and I feel very comfortable talking about women things with her. There is no judgement from Courtney. Also, she actually makes me feel human again!

I experienced a significant reduction in my allergy symptoms—so much so that I was able to stop taking Allegra.

I have had seasonal allergies to a variety of pollens and grasses since childhood. In my teens, I had allergy shots for several years, but have generally relied on medications like Allegra to alleviate my problems during the spring, summer, and fall. Even with medication I still experienced sneezing, congestion, and itchy eyes.

The folks at Transformational Acupuncture looked at my allergy problems in a holistic way, considering how my diet might also impact my allergies. After eliminating items from my diet, my acupuncturist helped me realize that I was lactose intolerant and dairy was also inflaming my allergies. Through a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine, and by eliminating dairy, I experienced a significant reduction in my allergy symptoms—so much so that I was able to stop taking Allegra.

My lower back pain and seasonal allergies disappeared with in two sessions!

I'm a recent transplant to Washington DC via Seattle Washington.

In Seattle I had a great Acupuncturist (Mariko) who took care of my aches and pains.

I was a bit bummed out on leaving her behind. However,  Mariko recommended that I visit Transformational Acupuncture!

And I'm so glad that I did. The  staff is amazing, from the warm smile from Nadia that greets you as you enter the office. To the amazing Acupuncturist Jamie Pineda who made my lower back pain and seasonal allergies disappear with in two sessions! I still miss Mariko.... but, I feel that I found a new home in Transformational Acupuncture.

I was referred here by a friend and have not looked back!

I was treated for back and neck tension by Andrei. He was great! Since it was my first visit to an acupuncturist, he was patient with me and answered all my questions. He was also very good at explaining why I was having the pains and how I could correct my posture, etc. so as not to further aggravate my issues. He even went an extra step one session to relieve some cold symptoms. Truly, I feel like a new woman. I now know what it feels like to have full range of motion in my neck, and not be tense all day. I will definitely be back for even the smallest ailment.
