Facial Acupuncture Testimonials

I had an amazing experiment at Healing With Zen. Zen and Vanessa were so helpful in explaining the process of acupuncture to me since it was my first time. I instantly felt so comfortable as they walked me though the process. The facial acupuncture I received was AMAZING! During the session I felt so relaxed. I had been struggling with sleep issues for months now and after my session I went right to sleep! I slept for a full 9 hours and felt so refreshed! I would recommend Healing with Zen to anyone interested in trying Acupuncture and Herbal Remedies.  – Tiffany S. – (6/28/2019) 

This amazing group of acupuncturists saved my life! I started going to Andrea Valencia in March 2020 following a couple of harrowing months of a dealing with a mystery illness which also induced severe anxiety and insomnia. Andrea is so kind and has a wonderful, warm energy that immediately puts you at ease. She was able to pinpoint my issues and also gave me “homework” assignments outside of my appointments for things like sound baths, qui gong and essential oils that aided my recovery in addition to the fabulous acupuncture treatments.

Once my health issues were under control, one day while waiting in the lobby I noticed a flyer for facial/cosmetic acupuncture and was very intrigued. As a woman in my early 40’s, I am interested in age defiance but through natural means, not things like fillers and botox. I asked Andrea about it and she referred me to Sonya Bhakta who is Healing with Zen’s specialist for facial acupuncture. Sonya is bubbly and delightful and like Andrea, is very knowledgeable in her specialty. We did approximately 6 months of facial acupuncture and gua sha treatments which I felt greatly improved the brightness of my skin and reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I love both of these ladies so much I continue to see each of them once a month for maintenance and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. If you are thinking of trying out acupuncture, I HIIGHLY recommend Healing with Zen – you will not be disappointed! – Emily W. (03/16/2021)

I had such a great experience with Zen & Vanessa. Got an acupuncture facial treatment, it was super relaxing and saw benefits right after. I was able to have a good night sleep that night, felt energized the next day & had a natural glow. Would definitely recommend this place, also the heated bed was a bonus. – Eli P. (6/14/2019)

I met Vanessa and Zen at a Lather event to introduce alternative Eastern medicine for facial care. I signed up for an assessment and initial acupuncture treatment to address a lifelong issue of frequent migraines and sleeping issues related to my age. I have now undergone approx. 12 treatments and have been relatively migraine-free for the first time in my life. In addition, I have been receiving the facial acupuncture treatments which have evened out my skin tone, provided a “lift” to a drooping eyelid, and seem to have generated more collagen and elasticity to my skin. I love Vanessa and her demeanor. She is genuinely interested in your state of health and helping to alleviate any symptoms. I’ve also been astounded at the state of relaxation I fall into during the treatment. I recommend Healing with Zen and Vanessa Ho to anyone interested in trying this option. – Janet S. (12/5/2018)

Zen brought me back from the dead. That’s the best way I can describe what my acupuncture treatment has done for me. In all honesty, I sought out Healing with Zen as a last resort after countless frustrations with my Western medical practitioners and no signs of my health improving. I was skeptical about how much acupuncture could really do for me, but I am incredibly happy that I chose to go through with it because it has been the only thing that has brought me relief. I had been battling with a flare up for several months that left me non-functional— all work and social plans came to a crashing halt. I was suffering from intense migraines about five days a week, vertigo/dizziness, nausea, crippling widespread pain, anxiety, depression, and extreme fatigue– just to name a few. Fast forward to today, after many weeks of treatment, and I have my life back again. My migraines alone have gone down to one a month and I believe even that one will eventually be reduced to zero. My other symptoms have either completely vanished or have been significantly reduced. All of this achieved without the use of harsh medications that come with a long list of side effects. Mind blowing. Everyone at Healing with Zen is professional, warm, and highly knowledgeable. I mainly had treatments with Zen and she was on top of all of my symptoms, always very attentive and determined to help me get better without ever feeling the slightest bit patronized by her (I have experienced this quite often with many doctors). I trust Zen with my health more than any doctor I have ever had before and have recommended her to everyone around me. I love that the treatments are so highly individualized and really cater to each patient’s specific needs. The treatments I had with Vanessa were also absolutely amazing– she is also a very caring and effective practitioner. Additionally, Kathleen at reception is such a welcoming (not to mention fashionable) presence.

This is the first time here.
I scheduled my Cupping Therapy session through the website. I received a call and email confirmation within 2 hours. (Pretty amazing)
The session went great. I didn’t want to get off the table. I really felt like I was being heard. Zen was very comforting to be around.
I’m going back next week for Acupuncture which will be a first for me.

Healing with Zen is a great facility! Zen walked me through the entire session and gave me tips to continue the healing process on my own at home. I have been going to doctors for years but acupuncture has been able to provide a holistic approach on healing. I immediately noticed a gradual change in my body and feel like it is now aware of itself.
I am looking forward to going to more acupuncture sessions, to help empower my body to heal itself naturally! I highly recommend it!

I would highly recommend Zen. I’m fairly new to acupuncture and never believe in Chinese med. By her taking my pulse she was able to diagnose my symptoms. After taking the herbs she prescribed to me I started seeing results within one week. I’m very impressed.

Zen is a true professional and really cares for her patients. Not only is she knowledgeable and effective, but she is thoughtful too. When i went in for my initial visit, she evaluated my overall health with a series of questions and walked me through the entire process as it was my first time using an acupuncturist. She also offers packages that reduce the price of each visit. I highly recommend Healing With Zen for your acupuncture needs.
