Testimonial 4

"Dr. Keiko is the best acupuncturist I have ever been to. Over the years, I have seen acupuncturists who were very good (and one who was horrible) but Dr. Keiko stands out among the best. Not only does she have knowledge of Eastern medicines and expertise in the use of both Chinese and Japanese needles, she is also intuitive, gentle, and fully invested in bringing wellness and/or healing to her patients. I have a neurological condition that is accompanied by unpleasant, physical side effects; Dr. Keiko has been able to provide me with both relief and actual improvement. She has made a genuine difference in my life and I couldn't recommend her more."

"Dr. Keiko Dodson offers the most effective and comprehensive facial I have ever received, and I have been to many spas and estheticians. Dr. Keiko combines acupuncture with Gua Sha and micro current, and uses natural, organic herbal and botanical products. I have never experienced such immediate results in skin radiance, fine line and pore size reduction. Her unique approach is not only relaxing and pampering but yields results! Truly amazing!"

"Dr. Keiko Dodson has given me several treatments and I have realized many benefits. After I receive her acupuncture treatment, my sleeping is much better and it gives me much relief with areas in my neck and back that I have stiff muscles. And her facials are truly wonderful ! She applies special Young Living Essential Oils for me and I very much enjoy the facial massage machine that gives me that refreshed and rejuvenated feeling ! My skin feels quite energized ! I am quite impressed with her strong passion for sharing the beneficial things for my well being.

I highly recommend her services!"

"I had the opportunity to experience the Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial with Gua-Sha by Dr. Keiko. I have had facials in the past but nothing like this, an ancient practice of skin rejuvenation with a modern flare. The treatments were very enjoyable and relaxing. Relaxing to the point that I fell asleep. The results were a glowing complexion, softening of fine lines and decreased muscle tightness. Thank you!"
