Susan L. (San Diego, CA) - 7/3/2021


As a regular user of alternative medicine that includes chiropractic, homeopathy and massage therapy I found myself drawn to acupuncture as another option that might further alleviate my muscle and joint pain issues. Modern Acupuncture offers a peaceful oasis, with comfy chairs and excellent , knowledgeable staff. Prices are reasonable especially with a bundle of appointment options.

Cheri D. (San Diego, CA) - 2/16/2021


Wonderful experience all around. Maria is great helping me with my IBS. I can’t believe what a difference it’s made on my digestion. I used to be in pain every time I ate out. With only 4 treatments I can eat without horrible pain. I’m sold, acupuncture works and it’s relaxing. I always have a nice little nap.

Nancu K. (San Diego, CA) - 2/4/2021

His explanation of what to expect was perfect. I highly recommend this acupuncture site for health and wellness
