I would like to laud Akemi Asao for her expertise as a practitioner. Her warm caring concerned manner made me feel very comfortable talking with her. With the right questions she was able to get to the root cause of my muscle problems, and form a treatment plan. After the acupuncture treatment I felt like a new person! And it lasted! She is wonderful, and I highly recommend her.

I was referred to Dr. Asao by my Ob and visited her three days after my due date, one day before the induction scheduled.
It was my first acupuncture treatment, so I was nervous, but desperate as I didn't want to use the drug. But, despite my anxiety her caring manner and attention to both me and my husband let us relax and led me to an incredibly peaceful state of mind.
Mild contraction started that night and I successfully gave a natural birth the following day as I desired.
We are ever so thankful to her and this incredible ancient medicine in this modern time!
I had had miserable periods for my entire youth when nothing was a help. Then by my mom's recommendation I reluctantly visited Dr. Asao, and after a few sessions my periods have gotten steadily less painful and more manageable and this past one I really saw the difference in the quality of life I could have during my period in comparison to before. Thank you for being patient with me and for helping to heal my body. My acne has also finally started to slow down - I'm hoping it will continue to clear up. I guess it just took that long for all the toxins to get out. Thank you again and I'm sorry for how impatient I was in my attitude towards the natural healing process. I think I still have a lot to learn about my body and how it works. I think it's unfortunate that it's just not commonplace for people to know how to deal with pain and other physical issues other than by taking pills or having surgery. A lot of my friends have painful periods too and I've been encouraging them to give acupuncture a try, keep warm, etc.
My name is Susan and have been struggling with horrible allergies and Asthma for years. Before I met Akemi I was getting sinus infections frequently and sick every 2 to 3 weeks, coughing, sore throat, congestion, lethargic. I was on months of prednisone, nasal sprays, 4 medications. On our first visit she worked on pressure points for my immune system and to help my congestion. She explained it might take any where from 3-12 months. I started visiting her once a week. After 2 years I have appointments every 3-4 weeks. With in 2 months I was off my inhalers, I still am on minimal allergy medication, one nasal spray and a very low dose of an asthma inhaler. I am roughly 80% better health wise with my Acupuncture visits.
Akemi Asao very knowledgable in her field and is a caring professional.
I am a true believer in Accupuncture with of course the right Acupuncturist.

I recently had some unexplained issues with severe knee pain and mobility problems. After visiting my primary care physician with no diagnosis or positive outcome, my wife recommended that I contact Dr. Akemi Asao. I had never been to an acupuncturist before, but the discomfort and lack of success with my previous attempts at relief, encouraged me to be open-minded. I am now a whole hearted believer and acupuncture “evangelist”. With just a single one hour treatment, Dr. Asao reduced the pain by about 75% and the mobility in my knee improved by about 50%! Since the results were so significant, I returned for a few follow up visits where Dr. Asao was also able to help me with noticeable relief from the side effects caused by chemotherapy that I am currently undergoing for brain cancer. I am now spreading the word to family and friends about the amazing results that I have experienced through Dr. Asao’s skills.
