"My GP recommended that I try acupuncture for my chronic pain. I have severe social anxiety and seeing a doctor alone, unless it's a female, is painfully hard for me. I needed to find somewhere where I didn't feel threatened and this place is amazing. Everyone in the office is easy going. This place has beautiful energy.
Rachel Riba is my acupuncturist and I adore the crap out of her. She has a beautiful way of treating others with care and respect. I've never seen her greet anyone without a smile or a kind word. Her friendly manner makes the questions she asks less invasive than what a GP might ask. She keeps a close eye on symptoms to evaluate what is working and what is not to better serve the needs of her clients.
Along with Rachel I see Lisa Loos for massage and she is fantastic. I have met only a few people in life that can give real hugs but Lisa is one of the top. Heck, I don't even like being touched by people but Lisa has magic in her hands. She is so down to earth that it's hard not to find comfort in being near her. I think the greatest thing about seeing Lisa is she listens to my body and lets me know what it is she is encountering and if it's something that needs more attention from Rachel.
The desk help is also helpful and friendly. Grace quickly learned my name and greets me by it each time I have an appointment. I love that they have the ability to confirm appointments through phone, text, or email. The reminders are awesome if you are like me and can't keep your days straight.
I highly recommend Pacific Health Center. Rachel and Lisa are the best." ~ Ali C., San Diego
