During my first pregnancy, I was unaware of the benefits of acupuncture and my morning sickness was so bad I had to get IV fluids. During my second pregnancy, acupuncture helped me reduce my morning sickness symptoms and improved my energy levels. Towards the end of my second pregnancy, I also started having a lot of pelvic pain despite wearing a maternity belt for support. I was in pain every time I walked. I let my Obgyn know and she said to take Tylenol and that there wasn’t much else I could do. Tylenol did not help with the pain, however, I found complete relief after one acupuncture treatment. I was able to continue working and take care of my toddler. Adrianne is very attentive and thorough. She is passionate about her work. I highly recommend her and I continue to see her as part of my wellness plan. – J.Moreno
Alma acupuncture has been nothing but a blessing in my life. I’ve walked in here not being able to see, eat, hear and not being able to get my menses and she always brings down the time of the month. The treatments are not all easy, but very well worth the outcome. It takes time, patience and a lot of hope. All in all the practices that Adrianne offers here are very helpful to my health. Thank you, Adrianne! – Anell
I just want to say that I am very thankful to have met you and I decided to have acupuncture. After my miscarriage it seemed as though getting pregnant would be impossible, yet after just 3 months of getting acupuncture along with taking the herbs, following a diet, working out and of course doing everything that I was told to do by you I can now say that we are pregnant again! I am just over the moon but a bit nervous at the same time because of my history, but I have faith that this time around everything will be just fine. I look forward to the next 9 months to come, so thank you so much again for all of your help. This would not have been possible without the extra help!! – Jessica Morrison
I was very skeptical of moving from traditional medicine to a more holistic approach to health. I like my pharmaceuticals and my instant relief type way of approaching feeling better. Not to mention, I am scared to death of needles (yes, it’s irrational). However, over the last several months, through Adrianne’s guidance, herbal therapy, acupuncture, and a total switch in my diet (I did a 21 day cleanse that helped reset my internal system…it was fantastic), the results outweigh my preferences. My demeanor is positive. My moods are stable. My energy has increased. My sleep has increased from 3-4 hours a night to 7-8 AND I’m rested. All in all, my skepticism has disappeared – not because of what Adrianne tells me but because I have experienced it first hand. – G.H.
Acupuncture made me skeptical at first, but I was so surprised in the way it healed me. I definitely would recommend it to those who could benefit from it. They too would be surprised at their results. – V.A.
My daughter has been suffering with chronic migraine headaches for months. It has been heartbreaking seeing my 12 year old not able to do the things she loves – cheer, gymnastics, hanging out with friends. Less than one month ago, I decided to try acupuncture for her. In only 3 treatments, I have seen her in less pain, have more energy and feeling more and more like her “normal” self every day. My daughter is able to do some of the things she has been missing and she continues to do more and more. Thank you, Alma Acupuncture for giving my daughter her life back. – K.B.
I have smoked for over 20 years. I had tried other methods, but always failed, due to headaches and crankiness. I went to alma acupuncture and after one session I haven’t smoked, I haven’t had cravings, headaches or crankiness. I used to get bloated and very gassy. All that has left me. I am very grateful that I met Adrianne, she has made me a happier person. – C.M.
I came here because I had pain in my lower back. It started 6 years before coming here. The pain went from my lower back through my left glute. I was told it was the sciatic nerve after having gone to a chiropractor and the treatment was of little help. I finally decided to try acupuncture and after one session, I feel almost no pain, I walk better and able to do many things I couldn’t do before, and that was just after ONE session! I recommend everyone to try it, Adrianne is very knowledgeable and very friendly. Also, there are no side-effects. – Juan Carlos C.
Alma Acupuncture has increased my quality of life immensly. When I went in for relief of both lower and upper back pain. I was amazed with the first treatment because I felt 75 percent better and with every treatment I have felt stronger and pain free. I would recommend Alma Acupuncture to anyone considering acupuncture as a method of pain relief treatment. The whole overall experience has been truly wonderful. Thank you – S.P.
I have been suffering from lower back pain and sciatic nerve pain for about 4 years. I tried physical therapy and many different medications, but nothing seemed to work. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I decided to give acupuncture a try. After my second visit my pain almost disappeared. – Lucila G.
I have been suffering from seasonal allergies for 5 years. My symptoms included tightness in my chest, nasal congestion, and extreme dizziness. After seeing several doctors including a doctor of pulmonology, the treatments were the same: steroids, inhalers and decongestants. These symptoms lasted from January – July. I decided to try a holistic approach this year. After my first dizzy spell, I saw Adrianne and felt relief within a few days. By the second week my dizziness was gone and I was breathing easier. This is my fourth treatment and I am thrilled that I don’t have to think about breathing anymore. My energy is back and I am looking forward to returning to my normal activities. I highly recommend Adrianne and will continue to see her for any new illnesses that may turn up. – C. Martin
Acupuncture helped (and continues to help me) beyond my physical body. Whenever I am in a session, I feel like I can process my emotions and daily situations from a more conscious perspective that manifests in my life afterwards. I feel lighter, healthier, more alive, and free to be who I really am. It has also helped me to be more disciplined in my physical activity and to watch what I consume. I 100% recommend it! – Laura Bustillos
I have suffered from constipation from childhood and thought there was nothing I could do about my condition. After hearing about acupuncture from a friend, I gave Alma Acupuncture a call and have not looked back. I am beyond pleased with my results. Adrianne is very thorough at every appointment when gathering information to discuss your health. She is concerned with your overall health not just the condition you called her for. I recommend Alma Acupuncture for any and all your health concerns. – D.M.
I wanted to update my review of Alma Acupuncture. I began seeing Adrianne in September for both a pinched nerve and for fertility issues. During my cycle in October when I was ovulating I had an appointment and we did a fertility treatment and IT WORKED! I was able to conceive and I am now 19 weeks along! My family and I are very grateful to Adrianne and her practice. Although I am still dealing with my pinched nerve, I am completely confidant that I will be able to work through this issue with the help of Adrianne and Alma Acupuncture. – Anessa A. (updated review – previous review is below)
I have had a pinched for the past three years and a month ago I made an appointment at Alma Acupuncture. I am so happy with my progress. My pinched nerve is getting better and I don’t have as much pain. Adrianne has a lot of knowledge about women’s health. Every appointment we spend a considerable amount of time discussing my health and well being. I never received this much attention from my OBGYN. The atmosphere is inviting and relaxing and she is fantastic at putting you to ease. I was apprehensive about getting acupuncture at first, however, the needles are tiny and they don’t hurt. Sometimes you will feel pressure for an nano-second but it goes away. I am also receiving treatment for fertility because I am trying to conceive. She knows a lot about women’s health, have I mentioned that already? 🙂 I highly recommend Adrianne Ortega for any health & well-being issues you may be having. – Anessa A.
I have received treatment from Adrianne for over 2 years for numerous ailments including chronic cough and digestive complications. I have silly eating habits that I have since learned to control in her care and I trust her advice. She constantly considers my wellness emotionally and that in turn affects my physical health positively. What a lovely practice and a wonderful friend. – A.B.
Adrianne’s acupuncture and cupping treatments have helped me tremendously. I started seeing her for an ankle injury and knee pain and experienced great relief from her treatments. In addition, she helped me reduce stress and tension immensely at a time when my stress levels were very high. I continue to seek her treatments because of how great they make me feel not only in terms of reducing stress, but an overall feeling of wellness. – V.S.
I actually feel AMAZING!!!!! Adrianne is a miracle worker. I have been in the best mood since I left Alma Acupuncture. I haven’t felt this good in so LONG!!!! – Z.G.
