I was a student in the Tai Chi course Robert teaches at the YMCA; he’s an incredible Tai Chi instructor! After an accident, I had acupuncture for traumatic brain injury symptoms that affected my balance and blood pressure. I’m a nurse by profession, and I give Robert of Acupuncture Associates high compliments for his wonderful bedside manner. I’m very pleased with his work and I’ll be back!

When I arrived Robert had read my file and was prepared to discuss my history. We spoke at length about my injuries, stress and lifestyle. Using very basic explanations Robert taught me that "less is more". He suggested a very simple food plan and encouraged me to lean in to the healing process. My acupuncture treatment was so relaxing I fell asleep! Where was all the anxiety I entered the building with? Thank You Robert for your kind and gentle spirit. Thank You for using your gift to heal and to teach. You are more than a practitioner, you are a mentor and a partner in my journey to good health.

For years I have suffered from neck pain due to various athletics and accidents. I was constantly “cracking” my neck to relieve the tension that would build up. Eventually the tension/pain began radiating from my neck into my right jaw, over my ear and into my eyebrow until it was a full blown headache. It had gotten to the point of me bearing the headaches 3-4 times per week.
For three weeks before my initial appointment with Dr. Robert I was experiencing deep right eye twitches that I assumed were related to my neck issues. I couldn't take it anymore so I finally made the appt. It took three visits for the twitches to cease but every time I went I could feel them abating. And I have not experienced neck pain or headaches since visit number one! I couldn't be happier!
I have also experienced other benefits to acupuncture that I wasn't expecting….a clear mind, more creative thought, motivation, less menstrual/PMS pain and more flexible movement.
I am so grateful I found Acupuncture Associates. Dr Robert takes his time getting to know you and thoroughly assesses your individual situation during your initial visit. He is professional and has a very calming personality. The space is exceptionally clean and relaxing.
I highly recommend Acupuncture Associates.
