What Makes Us Different

Our core beliefs and practices are focused on YOU – this means we place priority on spending the time to get to know you, your lifestyle and changes to your body in order to get to the bottom of causes and contributing factors.

While many practices will see anywhere from 2-4 patients per hour with limited face time and services performed, we dedicate our full focus and efforts on one patient at a time.

This works to your advantage as it enables us to thoughtfully devise a treatment plan that incorporates not only acupuncture but a combination of treatment therapies including herbal medicine, nutritional advice, cupping, gua sha, tuina massage, E-stim, herbal liniments and vibroacoustic therapy.

THE RESULT? More accurate diagnoses and the ability to get to the ROOT of the issue rather than simply treating symptoms, leading to faster results and long-term recovery.

    Dr. Erin has been treating me for wrist and forearm pain related to busy work season which consisted of 70-90 hour weeks. Erin's patient care manner and skillset have exceeded my expectations. She continually solicits your feedback to adapt and personalize your treatment plan. An example of this would be Dr. Erin incorporating cupping therapy after she observed how tense my shoulders and neck were. I had grown so used to the discomfort that I ignored the pain. Overall, I highly recommend her services. I have experienced vast improvement and pain relief starting after just my first session. -

    I highly recommend Dr. Lee. She is very caring and thoughtful - making sure to fully understand all of my issues both physical and mental in order to take the best approach in healing. I must say from just getting 2 treatments so far, I definitely feel a difference. I've had heaviness and pain in my shoulder/upper back for some time and it feels a lot lighter overall. It's very hard to find doctors that actually care and are personable these days. So happy I had the opportunity get treatments from Dr. Lee. -

    As a person that is fearful of doctors and needles, the thought of receiving acupuncture treatment is daunting. However, Dr Lee has made each visit a pleasant one. I have chronic back pain due to my job and she has helped me each time I had muscle spasms. Her amazing bedside manner and calming presence has made it a great experience. Her fees are also very reasonable to make it affordable for such a chronic problem. I highly recommend Dr Lee!!! You won’t be disappointed!!! -

    I just had the most wonderful experience with Dr. Lee. I'm new to acupuncture, but she made me feel at ease and comfortable. The unique combination of acupuncture, cupping, massage, aromatherapy and sound therapy was innovative and powerful. I don't remember ever feeling this relaxed, connected and in flow. I couldn't recommend her higher and I look forward to working with her into the future. -

    I went to see Erin for my migraines. After a sit-down, going through my extended history, she really took the time to understand my health issues. Then, I swear, when she placed some of the needles in my leg, I felt an electric jolt like those pathways led right to my problem areas. Her knowledge of the body and pressure points is amazing.I always have these tender/sore spots behind my ears down the sides of my neck, and when it gets too tense it leads to a migraine. After just my first treatment, I was feeling/prodding my neck and... read more -

    Dr Lee is an an amazing acupuncturist! She is friendly, gentle, and communicative. Unlike other acupuncturists I've worked with, Dr Lee will go above and beyond to explain particular aspects of treatment to you and their benefits. I always leave a session feeling revitalized and calm. I can't recommend Dr Lee enough! -

    I’ve been having chronic issues including fatigue, back and shoulder pains, and indigestion due to stress and I had the fortunate opportunity to meet Dr Lee. Her amazing treatments and prescriptions have been able to help my body to better handle the stress I deal with on a daily basis and resulted in improving tension and blood circulation, all of which lead to improving everything else that seemed to going wrong with my body. I highly recommend her if you’re body is going through any type of stress from digestion to muscle pains. She takes care of it all, and well!!! -

    I love Dr Lee! I’ve tried acupuncture before, and I like it, but this is the first time I have really been able to tell a difference. She has such a caring and well rounded approach that not only helped my shoulder issues but also brought my stress level down a couple of notches. I’ve already recommended her to friends who have started seeing her. I can’t sing her praises enough! -

    I have been going to Dr. Lee for a year now to treat my lower back. I am an avid marathon runner and because of the years of intense training my lower back has been really painful to a point where I was not able to bend without holding on to something. Every time I receive a treatment, I noticed that a layer of pain disappears. I also had breathing issues during my runs and she was able to help open up my chest and my breathing canals. I am able to run again and feel that my hips is... read more -

    I have been seeing Dr. Lee for chronic low back pain I’ve been suffering from for 2 years. With her method I have finally been able to do more in my life. Dr.Lee takes her time to listen, and explain her process. She has se weak methods to address pain such as cupping, and aroma therapy which has helped significantly. She considers all ailments you may be feeling but uses clinical reasoning to prioritize what to work on. As a result, all my other ailments for better too! Highly recommend. -

    My brother in-law (in KC) is a chiropractor and practices acupuncture. My wife says he’s the best, and with no comparison, I did so too. However, when my wife saw Dr. Lee, she was thoroughly impressed and recommended I see her as well (a lot closer at 56th street). After two visits, she addressed a badly sprained ankle and now with three in, has significantly increased movement in my shoulders and neck which have been a chronic issue. As a Work In Progress, I look forward to follow ups to further improve my upper body mobility and well being. -

    Dr. Lee is excellent. She was able to see me right away when I had major back pain and after a few treatments, I am feeling so much better. She is calming, inquisitive and intuitive. Acupuncture really works! -

    Dr. Erin Lee has been a tremendous addition to my well-being. I met her through Dr. Pico my Chiropractic Guru 🙂 and she has transformed me beyond belief.

    I have absolutely loved my sessions with Dr. Lee. I’ve had acupuncture and cupping before but not to the level and with the techniques she uses. It’s unlike any acupuncture I’ve had before. She really knows what she’s doing, truly cares and wants her patients to feel better from her treatment and she’s a great listener. Can’t recommend her enough! -

    Dr Lee was introduced to me through my current chiropractor. After seeing multiple different acupuncturist I was a little hesitant at first but, I am glad I jumped in the deep end. She is great explaining and forming a plan. I have a hard time dealing with stress, psoriasis, and other conditions which she helped with over the past few months of treatment. I would highly recommend anyone to her. -

    After just a few visits, Dr. Lee helped me reduce my pain by 85%. I’ve had low back pain, with hip and buttocks pain for over a year. For someone who does not love acupuncture, Dr. Lee makes your visit warm and personable. She’s caring and genuinely wants to help. I can’t believe the results I’ve seen just after a few sessions! Highly recommend her services. -

    Dr. Lee is a compassionate, patient, gentle practitioner, who truly cares about her patients' well-being. I've only been working with her for a few months, but I can feel marked improvement with chronic pain issues in my body! Our sessions never feel rushed; I truly appreciate how she takes time to explain her process and answer all my curious questions, and how she makes me feel like we're on a team to help me feel well. Highly recommend! -

    Dr. Erin Lee has been treating me for severe arthritic pain as an alternative to surgery. When I first started with her 3 weeks ago my pain level was off the charts. She has managed to bring my pain level down considerably. She is also working on other health issues, with effective results. Dr. Lee is extremely professional and thorough. She is down to earth and easy to talk to. She is also thorough in her explanation of what and why, she is doing something. She works on your all round well being as well as... read more -
