  • I was initially referred to Lotus Center by my gynecologist when she could not figure out why I was having pain. After several months of acupuncture and herbs, the pains stopped and they've never come back (now about four years later). Lotus Center has also helped cure me of several other miscellaneous issues as they've come up since then. They fix the root of the problem, unlike (unfortunately) ... [other places] that just cover up the symptoms...

  • I struggled with a variety of heath problems and went the traditional medicine route of specialists, tons of medical bills and still had no health improvement to show for it. I first came to Lotus Center 4 years ago and am happier and much healthier for it, not to mention my healthcare costs have decreased significantly! Everyone here is top notch and approaches health and wellness holistically. As a patient I have always been treated with respect, kindness, and care. The proof is in my wellness, I keep coming back for the amazing support I have received from all the practitioners.

  • Life Changing, really! I've suffered, and I do mean suffered, from a variety of health issues since I was a child. Thanks to Brandon, Rena and Stephanie, I am discovering for the first time, at age 32, what it is to be able to live a healthy happy life. I've been to many other acupuncturists among many many other doctors and therapists of all kinds since I was 8 years old and not been able to find anyone to help me. Thank goodness I didn't give up. This office is like no other! It is a healing place where you can get the care you need. Health gives a freedom like no other - thank you Lotus Center!!
