As an active surfer, spear fisherman and jogger I am constantly finding myself muscularly sore or orthopedicly inflamed…that was before I found Julia. She has turned me into a certified acupuncture addict. Since the joint pain subsided I have been seeing her roughly every two weeks for “maintenance” and it has been incredible. Perpetually tight areas of my body have been opened up and I am feeling better, sleeping better and performing better.
The sport of rock climbing produces sports-related injuries that are difficult to treat. I saw Julia for a severe case of tendonitis that western medicine and massage simply could not fix. Julia was wonderful and after a few treatments the constant pain subsided.
I’ve been getting migraines since I was five years old and thought nothing would help until I went to Julia. She knows exactly which spots to focus on and has helped my migraines so much! I am so grateful to have found her. Her acupuncture is so relaxing. I fall asleep within 10 minutes and wake up feeling amazing.
Julia is an outstanding, world class Acupuncturist, and is my ace in the hole when my body breaks down. I have seen her throughout the years many times when I have gone and injured myself. She fixed me up every time. Last time I hit a tree snowboarding with my helmet, and ended up herniating some disks in my neck. Shooting nerve pains down my arms into my hands, and plenty of burning pain. Took a few treatments, but she ended up resolving the issue completely, and that injury is now completely behind me. Julia is an amazing practitioner!
I am confident that the only reason I am not a walking ball of nerves is because i go to AcuLife to see Julia. Great experience and an absolutely safe, warm and healing environment.
Acupuncture has changed my life thanks to Julia. It is not just the experience itself that relaxes you but the after effects. I have less stress in my life and have seen improvement in my mood levels, weight management, and pain management.
I actually fell asleep while the needles were in and by the time I walked out my whole body felt relaxed and in some sort of natural high!
Best acupuncture I’ve had outside of China.
I am a professional ballerina, and I put a lot of strain on my body on a daily basis. I normally see Julia for work on my legs, and I gotta tell you, every time she works on my calves, I feel like a new person the next morning in the ballet studio. I have recently been going to Julia for an ankle sprain. Its cut my healing time in half.
I haven’t done acupuncture in a while, but each needle felt like it was placed dead center into each key node that anchored a network of musculoskeletal restriction….most did not feel like a poking sensation at all, but more like a button being pushed followed by a gratifying softening of tissue nearly every time until my whole body just submitted into the relaxed stillness. Each seeming to feel more relaxing and pleasurable than the last. I was in such a loose and relaxed state towards the end and felt like I was on cloud 9 for a spell.
She also has extensive knowledge about all things body and mind and often shares really useful tips for things to incorporate or subtract from my lifestyle.
The treatment was incredibly relaxing, I immediately fell asleep (which I almost never do during acupuncture), however her style of needle placement promotes very deep relaxation.
After my second treatment my back pain was gone. There were times that I couldn’t stand up straight because my back was hurting so much. Now I am able to do things I couldn’t do two years ago and I feel great.
It was an amazing experience to feel the contractions during the acupuncture and I truly feel it helped me go into labor naturally. Julia was highly recommended and now I can pass the word on, too!
She truly loves to help people, has an amazing calming energy to her, and really knows her stuff. Im so glad I was sent to her years ago by a friend, she has been a healing angel.
I am a professional ballet dancer, and the acupuncture treatments I’ve received from Julia have made a massive difference in my body. She is the go-to acupuncturist for the professional ballet company of which I am a member, and so many of us rely on her to keep us going. At least a few times a week, someone will cry out “I need Julia!”
The relief I felt after the first visit alone was a minor miracle. Bless you, Julia, for being such a compassionate instrument of healing! Five stars and then some 🙂
I have become a regular client of Julia’s and can not say enough good things about her. She continues to consult me on my knee recovery and is always interested in hearing what the doctors have to say. Julia is not only a talented practitioner, but also an amazing person. I can’t say enough good things about her and whether you are looking for an acupuncturist or are considering trying it for the first time, she is the BEST!

So, as far as customer service goes, I’m giving Julia 5-freakin’ stars. I was coming in from out of town (LA) for a wedding, so I emailed her via the ‘contact us’ page on the website. Within an hour (at 10pm) she emails me directly and tells me she won’t be in town BUT does tell me the days and times she’s available for the next week. I just had to let everyone know what great service Julia gives, especially since that’s hard to come by these days.

After suffering from a chronic neck and shoulder pain for about 8 months, I decided to try Acupuncture. It was amazing, after one treatment with Julia my life turned around. That cute slender girl, with amazing muscle strength, cured my pain. I saw here weekly for a couple of months and it worked. The best part is her massage at the end of the treatment, she has the strength of a Polar Bear. Now I see her once a month for a preventative treatment

I came to Julia with severe neck pain, I literally could not turn my neck to the left even an inch. The treatment was incredibly relaxing, I immediately fell asleep (which I almost never do during acupuncture), however her style of needle placement promotes very deep relaxation. I can’t recommend her highly enough, I’ll be going back to treat insomnia which acupuncture is very effective for.

I have been interested in acupuncture for a while and decided to go see Julia, her rave reviews on yelp and the fact that she accepts my insurance was a huge plus. My first session was great and she went above and beyond to recommend some herbal products to help my current situation the day after our session. I’ve already referred her to some of my friends and would definitely encourage anyone seeking acupuncture treatment to see her!

I would highly recommend Julia and AcuLife for anyone that is looking for an alternative to western medicine to help heal any issues of pain, stress, or anxiety relating to the body. Acupuncture has changed my life thanks to Julia. It is not just the experience itself that relaxes you but the after effects. I have less stress in my life and have seen improvement in my mood levels, weight management, and pain management.
