"I sought relief through acupuncture for intense jaw pain after experiencing discomfort for many months. This was my first attempt at it and I was unsure what to expect. I chose this Center because it is centrally located in Mission Valley and a friend recommended I try treatment with Rachel Riba.
My initial consultation with Rachel was thorough, informative and hopeful. She has a friendly, warm approach and you can tell she is genuinely invested in caring for her patients. During the first visit she pinpointed other areas needing treatment that could be contributing to my locked jaw. I could not even tell when she would insert a needle (which was something I was concerned about.) She also added a short cranial-facial massage after taking the needles out which was wonderful. Acupuncture works best with reoccurring, regular visits but after just the first session I already felt less tense. She even created a take-home tincture for oral use between visits which helped jump start a better balance in my gallbladder.
After this type of service, I don't see why I would ever try another place. Rachel is the best!" ~ Toy B., Sam Diego
