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, 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.

  • Emmy L.

    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. -

    M M.

    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! -

    Nicole B.

    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! -

  • YooKyung P.

    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!!! -

    Cheryl P.

    Dr. Lee has helped me tremendously with my issues. I tore tendons and ligaments in my foot- and with weekly accupuncture visits, I am able to walk very well and pain-free! Dr. Lee is kind and extremely knowledgeable about her profession and I highly Reccomend her services! -

    LipicaShah

    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! -

  • Colleen K.

    My experience with Dr Lee has been wonderful- I leave her office feeling brand new. In addition to acupuncture, Dr Lee performs cupping, sound therapy and other Chinese medicine therapies based on my needs of the given day. I have noticed improvement in my various medical conditions, from the treatments she offers as well as the tangible tools/tips that she provides for me to use at home. So kind and knowledgeable! -

    Heather C.

    My recent experiences with Dr Erin Lee have been so positive. As an acupuncture patient she has been so thorough in her understanding of my health needs. After four years of consistent pain following a series of injuries, I am now receiving pain relief. She is an expert in tracking the pain pathways. -

    Elizabeth R.

    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. -

  • Tom I.

    Dr. Lee is great. I wasn't sure if acupuncture was going to help my knee pain, but it has definitely done so. The experience hasn't been what I'd expected -- I'd had other acupuncture sessions that were less clinical, and less effective. Dr. Lee's knows what she's doing, she very perceptive, and careful and methodical about her work. She's also reassuring and helpful in getting you to describe what's wrong so she can treat it well; in other words, everything I want in a doctor. -

    Kenneth B.

    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. -

    Priscilla P.

    My experience as an acupuncture patient with Dr. Lee has been nothing short of life-changing. After years of chronic pain, Dr. Lee has worked to help me live pain-free and understand the mind-body connection that is essential to feeling well and healthy. -

  • Andrea G.

    I am so happy my chiropractor referred me to Dr Lee. I had debilitating sciatic nerve pain and Dr Lee's acupuncture and cupping treatment provided measurable relief. I found her to be professional with an excellent bedside manner. She explained the treatment plan for my condition and was very responsive to my questions. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Lee. -

    Liz J.

    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 -

  • Briana Z.

    Dr. Lee is a very attentive acupuncturist who takes the time to listen to all of my concerns and adjusts her treatment accordingly. Dr. Lee worked on my back and my arms/hands to increase blood flow and the movement of energy in my body in order to reduce pains in those areas. Dr. Lee's caring attitude really shows through her interactions with her patients and she is very good at what she does and I have experienced notably reduced pain through working with her. I will definitely be keeping up my treatments with her! Thanks Dr. Lee! -

    Kathleen C.

    I’ve been dealing with chronic pain for the past few years and I’m so happy to have found Dr.Erin. She is kind, patient, and knowledgable about the workings of the body and provides a well-thought out course of treatment. Love the warm and welcoming feel of her office and feeling much better than I have in a long time. -

    Josh S.

    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. -

    A G.

    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. -

  • Nicole P.

    Dr Lee is amazing. She is knowledgeable, professional, and very effective. I have seen great results each time I've gone so far and looking forward to more! -

    Scott K.

    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. -

    Michele M.

    Dr. Lee is amazing. She is a good listener and a highly skilled medical sleuth! When I first saw her I had debilitating back/hip pain which she zeroed in on and within 6 weeks I was pain free. She's my go-to acupuncturist should any need occur in the future. -

  • Jacline

    Dr. Lee is a great Acupuncturist! She is communicative and attentive to your health goals. I strongly recommend her practice! She has helped reduce my pain and worked with me to achieve great results in just a couple of visits. Dr. Lee is knowledgeable, professional and patient. I am glad that I was able to find her through my chiropractor Dr. Pico. -

    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 -
