Here are some examples of how our patients feel about our work together. We focus on medicine, rather than marketing, so we're always grateful if you share a positive experience with others.
- Back Pain, Anxiety, Depression, Immunity and Allergies -
“I have now been doing acupuncture for three months and I can’t imagine my life without it. Not only have my allergies gone away, but so has my mild chronic back and neck pain, and a lot of my anxiety and depression.
“At first, I was a little scared of the needles, but they actually feel amazing and help my muscles completely relax. After each session, I feel like I’ve had the best massage ever.
“The Chinese herbs that Dan Eng mixes for me are extremely effective and even though my immune system is a lot stronger now because of them, I plan on continuing to take the herbs for as long as I can, just to maintain overall good health.
I now highly recommend acupuncture to anyone I know. My health has never been better. Dan really pays attention to my body and has done wonders to help regulate it. The cost for treatment at this place is as good as it gets and I cannot recommend it enough!”
– B., San Bruno
- Headaches, Allergies, Back Pain, Stress, Menstrual Issues -
“Phil is a skilled and compassionate practitioner who has treated me for multiple health conditions, including headaches, allergies, edema, back pain, insomnia, and skin, digestive, stress-related, and menstrual issues.
“In addition to his effective acupuncture and herbal treatments and nutritional suggestions, I have found one of Phil's strengths to be his ability to be present with me as a patient and to listen to my concerns without judgment. For me, that has been nearly as healing as the treatment itself.
“I highly recommend Phil. He is dedicated to the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is consistently working on himself profesionally and personally to continue his study and to further develop his already vast knowledge. He is extremely professional, likeable, easy to talk to, and humble.”
- S.O., Oakland
- Chinese Medicine -
“I’ve received treatments and herbs from both Jesse and Dan, including my first ever acupuncture session. I highly recommend checking LMCA out at least once, especially if you’re relatively new to the Chinese medicine world (as I was); you’ll feel welcomed, safe, and well taken care of throughout your appointment.
“Each time I visit I’m impressed by their genuine thoughtfulness, professionalism, and attention to detail, and they leave me with exercises and inspiration to continue to improve my health and well being. The clinic space itself is sunlit, clean, and quite beautiful, a reflection of the care they take in their practice. I am so so thankful that LMCA is right down the street!”
– A.E., Oakland
- Various -
“I am so glad to have met Phil and experience his work. I've consistently worked with him on herbs that catered to my specific needs, as well as acupuncture. Phil is aware and actively listens to your concerns. Phil has helped me move through some of my most difficult challenges, and now through my pregnancy - another milestone! As an acupuncture junkie, I've grown a strong liking for Phil's work, and he is absolutely someone who has my trust and best interest at hand.”
– J.C., Oakland
- Sciatica, Low Back Pain -
“Recently I was in Oakland for several days and found myself suffering from sciatic pain. I found this cozy, warm little clinic close to my hotel and requested treatment. Dan very competently zeroed in on a few points and was able to clear up the problem almost completely after just one visit. The next day I had another treatment and was amazed to find that the pain was thoroughly gone after just 2 sessions.
“I am very grateful and would recommend Dan to anyone.”
– G., Massachusetts
- Persistent Cough -
“I have met other acupuncturists before Dan but nobody addressed or even noticed my resistance and off-putting feeling about needles. When I met Dan I was suffering from an unrelenting cough that had lasted for a few months. Next thing I knew Dan was taking my pulses and asking me many questions. His inquiries and soft touch naturally eased me into receiving one needle after another – there was something thoughtfully gentle about him.
“I had forgotten that healing was possible, and Dan helped me discover that. It has been over two years since Dan first worked on me, and I still return to Dan to be reminded again that I can heal from anything!”
– J., Oakland
- Chronic Neck, Upper Back and Shoulder Pain -
“I had a wonderful ‘tui na’ massage from Dan recently.
“I have chronic shoulder, neck and upper back pain and stiffness. I have had many massages in my life including acupressure, Swedish, deep muscle, etc. and they have been helpful to varying degrees. But ‘tui na’ helped me more than all of these combined!
“Dan’s ‘tui na’ was remarkably helpful to relieve the deep soreness and pain that these other massages rarely touch.
I felt very good when I left and even more relief over the following few days.
“Dan was very gentle yet persistent in working those deep areas. He was very responsive to feedback. I think he had a very good intuition and skill as to what muscles and joints to work on.
“I am headed back for more and I recommend you do the same! 😉”
