What my patients say

"Dashal is not like any other practitioner of acupuncture that I have ever met.  


You can sense her care and concern for her patients.  For the duration that I have been working with her on ulcerative colitis and insomnia, she allowed my health problems to become her problem. In other words, she did not rest until she found a solution that brought me relief.  Her approach to partnering and working with her patients to find solutions that makes sense and also bring relief to their problems is so effective that I recommend her 110%.  


I normally do not write testimonials, but I chose to on this one because she made a lasting impression on me.  She is the type of practitioner that I will recommend my family and friends to see."

"I am 56 years old and have rheumatoid arthritis (painful joint pain caused by inflammation). I work full-time on a computer and I have missed a few days of work because my hands hurt so bad I could not type or even click the mouse or write with a pen. I was not able to bend my index finger or make a fist with my right hand. Also, when getting out of bed in the morning or leaving my desk, everything hurt, and it took a few moments to get moving. My doctor prescribed medication that did not work.


I explained my symptoms to Dashal about 6 weeks ago. She gave me a diet to follow, which entailed foods to absolutely avoid and foods to start eating. Dashal explained I might not feel a difference for 2 to 3 months.


But on a Monday exactly 4 weeks ago, I was able to make a fist and type “Pain Free!" I have a lot more energy and I'm able to move with a lot less pain. It’s only been 6 weeks!! I can’t wait to see what I feel like in the next 2-3 months!


Thank you so much Dashal!"
