After 4 horrible experiences with OTHER acupuncture clinics and swearing off acupuncture forever, my body and my daughter urged me to try one last time with Erik at Inner Gate Acupuncture.

And they were right! Erik is an awesome practitioner and a truly wonderful person; warm, non- judgmental, caring, compassionate and funny to name but a few of his great qualities. He made me feel very much welcomed, and put me at ease right away. He honored the fact that I am very sensitive to acupuncture and started me with one needle for 5 minutes. He checked on me frequently and gave me a "panic button". Since then we have worked up to where I can have "normal" acupuncture treatments. Amazing!

The reason I tried acupuncture one more time was that I became so sick a year ago with gastrointestinal problems that I lost 40 pounds and was still losing weight, while being in a lot of pain and distress. I really felt as if I could be dying. After finding Erik at Inner Gate Acupuncture and going once a week for a few months, he helped me 100% to feel better, have less pain and make my chronic problem a lot more manageable. I have even felt completely healed and normal at times, which is such an awesome improvement. I am not sure what would have happened had I not started treatment at Inner Gate but I think that maybe Erik saved my life and that is no exaggeration. Erik has given me a lot of hope for the future.

Once I was in a stable place, Erik worked on bursitis and back issues. The bursitis goes away completely for months at a time and when it starts sneaking back, Erik zaps it and it is gone again for months. He cured a chronic back condition that flares up from time to time in ONE session! It was incredible. I have had chiropractic, massage, physical therapy and none of it was as effective as that one treatment with Erik.

My experience with Inner Gate Acupuncture has been nothing but wonderful- all of the staff are friendly and relaxed and make me feel totally at home. Teri at the front desk is always concerned and caring about my well being and makes me feel nurtured and supported. The atmosphere in the clinic is clean, soothing, peaceful and aesthetically pleasing.

I highly recommend Inner Gate Acupuncture without reservation. It is my home away from home and the BEST acupuncture clinic in the city!

I have been suffering from severe menstrual pain and cramps for 25 years and finally I have found something that works to relieve it. I love this place and everyone there. Even though I'm not a fan of needles and haven't particularly enjoyed acupuncture in the past, the folks at Inner Gate have worked so well with me and I thoroughly enjoy all my treatments. I highly recommend it.

I love this place. I love all the people who work here, and even their lobby and musical choices. I've been seeing Erik for treatments for about 5 years and have been so happy with my experiences. I've gone for everything from muscle pain and soreness, TMJ, and other issues as well. The treatments are relaxing and have lasting benefits past the treatment itself. I always come away feeling better. I highly recommend this place--any of the practitioners.

I have been going to Inner Gate Acupuncture for over a year with various concerns and health related issues. Although I see Oliver as my primary practitioner, I feel very comfortable with all the practitioners at the clinic.
The most recent experience was the need to heal a very fractured ankle. An initial cast prevented immediate access to the fracture site. After 5 weeks the cast came off and the x-ray showed very little healing. Oliver proceeded to use acupuncture and various other herb treatments. 6 weeks later the x-ray showed complete healing. I'm certain it was the acupuncture, the herb remedy and most probably his good humor, compassion and ability to recite poetry on a moments notice. The clinic environment is warm and welcoming. It is not just about the needles, the herbal remedies and the expert knowledge and skill that makes this clinic an outstanding place to receive health care. It is also about care of the whole person and the sensitivity to me as a patient and an individual that keeps me coming back.

I am an 80 year-old male in good health. For 40 some years I have used the services of a major metro HMO and am generally satisfied. About 5 years ago I discovered Inner Gate and have become a regular client of Eric.

His accupuncture and herbal potions have helped me with several minor problems, including depression, back pain, and constipation. But I have come to see that the major benefit for me is what Eric has taught me about health itself: that wholeness is our natural condition and the healer's function is to help us enlist the marvellous natural powers of the body to maintain healthy function. For some conditions, Western medicine can be helpful, etc. In short, Eric practices truly "integrative" medicine. I have managed to combine both resources very satisfactorily; but I find that when I have a health concern, I think first of Eric and Innergate. I see that as my primary resoure for health maintenance.

Also there is something health-giving about the atmosphere of Inner Gate, itself. The staff and practioners are unhurried and responsive. The decor is pleasing, the setting low-tech. A soothing contrast to the bright-lighted, white-walled waiting room at my HMO, with the array of expensive medical technology. I feel that healing begins when I step into the place.

Finally, convenient location (just off NE Sandy Blvd) and easy parking.

I have been plagued with back and neck pain for years. I??ve seen MD??s, chiro??s and been through numerous physical therapies to try to keep the pain in check. However, because of my active lifestyle I tend to suffer from occasional flare-ups that prevent me from golfing, working out or anything physical.
I??d been told by my doctors that maybe I should give up my physical activities to prevent future bouts but I didn??t want to take that option. Instead I scheduled an appointment with InnerGate Accupuncture and it was there that I met Oliver.
Oliver doesn??t make you keep coming back just to milk you for the money. Instead they genuinely care about your well being. As my body improved, Oliver began to increase the time between treatments.
I injured my upper back and neck recently because or all of the odd positions that you find yourself in while painting my house. My upper back hurt all of the time and my neck was locked up preventing me from having full movement. Thinking that it was a skeletal alignment related i went to see my chiropractor for 3 visits with only temporary relief from pain and hardly any change in my range of motion. I went to see Oliver to see if acupuncture could help.
Oliver applied the acupuncture followed by deep tissue massage and stretching. I left there that day much improved. After a total of 3 visits I??m back to normal.
BTW ?? I??d injured my elbow while golfing and suffered from ??Golfers elbow? which is very painful. I??ve had cortisone injections and went to physical therapy for a month to partially cure. One visit with Oliver and my elbow was pain free.
I??ve recommended Inner Gate to many family and friends who??ve all come back with similar positive experiences that I??ve had.
Oliver has kept me going strong. I highly recommend him to anyone that??s tired of suffering from pain.

About 5 weeks ago I woke up with severe double vision. It was horrible. I couldn't do anything. Walking down the street, driving my car, reading, writing, pretty much everything was really hard or impossible. After seeing many medical professionals I was told that I had a damaged nerve in my eye and it would just to have to heal on its own. I was told it would take around 3 months to heal.
A friend recommended Erik at Inner Gate. I had never had acupuncture before, but considering western medicine had nothing to offer me I called the office. Erik was so nice, even calling me on his day off. They got me in right away. Everyone there is really nice, professional and accommodating.
I went for a check up for my eye yesterday and was told that after only four weeks of treatment with Erik my eye is 80% healed. I see much better now and feel certain that my sight will be fully restored in another week or two. The opthalmologist told me that it usually takes three months or more for this type of injury to heal, sometimes longer. I'm usually a slow healer, so I know that Erik has made a huge difference. He is even helping me with my allergies. After my eye is healed I plan to see if he can help me with other issues.

I have been suffering pain for a year due to heel spur. I love wearing high heels and dance. I had to stop wearing high heels and have missed several hula performances and have stopped hula due to severe pain,

Three weeks ago, it was recommended to try Acupuncture by two sisters, Andrea and TerriAnn. I was hesistant and scared but I thought I just have to try it.

Amazing result I received after the first treatment by Erik at Inner Gate Acupuncture. The pain has improved dramatically - hardly any pain! I feel so normal!

Thank you, Erik! You are the best! Oh, thanks too to Andrea and TerriAnn.

I have an ongoing medical condition that was caused from a previous surgery. The western answer to this was, you guessed it more surgery. Something was not quite right with this equation in my mind. So, I started searching for alternatives. I did online research and found that acupuncture had been used to successfully treat other people with this type of condition. I thought to myself what do I have to lose? I was referred by a friend ( who was astounded at the wonderful results she had gotten from acupuncture treatment for back pain), to Casey at Inner Gate.
From the initial treatment, I felt like I was in good hands and trusted that he understood what was going on and had a good plan of treatment and that he cared. Oh, did I mention that I was in severe pain. After a couple of treatments, the pain subsided and is for the most part completely under control. Unless I do something not so bright to stir things up. I was amazed and so thankful that I would not have to undergo another debilitating surgery.
Not only has it helped with this condition but it has also helped immensely with several other problems that I had no idea this could cure. I give my highest recommendation to Casey at Inner Gate. This path is the right way for me, and I know that there are thousands of people out there that could benefit from acupuncture. I have gone from being a little wary to being a true believer in Chinese medicine. Oh, and much healthier as a result. Thanks Casey and the Inner Gate Team!

Where do I even begin? I suppose I need to go back about 15 years or so when the Anxiety started to creep its way into my life. Insert the woman's moon cycle at that and you have one antsy 10 year old. I wasn't one of those lucky girls who got away with "normal periods". I'm talkin' the 8-10 day, severe vomiting, passing out type. Shortly after entering college, I fainted and tumbled down a flight of stairs off pain alone. No pain killer could tame this beast.
Anxiety started to eat away at my brain. If I could have a dollar for all those sleepless nights, I could put that money in the bank and live off the interest alone. After years of various failed birth control methods and Lexapro, my body was ready to give up.
In 2007, I developed recurring abdominal pains that affected me more and more regularly as the years went on. I visited a plethora doctors in different fields; none of them could find anything wrong. The only solution : birth control or surgery. After my experiences, I refused either of them.
I would also like to note in '04, I suffered the worst wisdom tooth extraction possible (minus fracturing the jaw). It took months to recover from that experience, but I never regained feeling and taste in the right side of my mouth due to Lingual Nerve damage. I consulted at least 6 dentists/oral surgeons and they told me I would never recover from the nerve damage.
My body finally told me ENOUGH! December of '09. Abdominal pain and stress became unbearable, I could no longer function. I had no choice but to quit my job, put 2 promising internships on hold, and fly home to South Cackalacky to see more doctors.
Once back in P-town, a good friend recommended alternative medicine. What did I have to lose? I already lost my health and sanity to the wonders of Western Medical Science, I'll give TCM a try (I'm also a huge Cesar Milan fan, he said acupunture was cool :) I looked for the place w/ the best reviews and success stories and went for it.
I have been working with Oliver Leonetti at Inner Gate since March this year. I've had one sleepless night and I'm full-to-burst with positive energy. I had no idea I could feel so great without the help of caffeine and sugar! This is the first time in my life that I can have regular, quick, pain-free menstrual cycles w/o the PMS to tag along with it. With a life time's worth of anxiety that practically dissipated after my first session, I have fully regained 100% feeling and taste in my mouth (6 years later).
Thank you, Oliver and Inner Gate, for helping my body heal and putting my life back on course again! I'm a changed (wo)man.

Inner Gate Acupuncture is amazing! The building is full of a positive, caring atmosphere and wonderful people. I had had chronic and debilitating back problems for 9 years and was taking prescription pain medications just to manage daily pain. I went to Inner Gate and started seeing Oliver, and after a few weeks, I was already feeling immense relief from the pain.

Now, I am no longer on pain medications and have become more active than I've ever been able to be in the last 10 years! Not only has my pain infinitely improved, but treatments with Oliver have also improved all other areas of my life. Going to Inner Gate Acupuncture has been one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I recommend them to anyone and everyone looking to boost the quality of life in any way.

Erik and the gang at Innergate were wonderful and thorough when treating my injuries from a car accident. It was covered by auto insurance and Inner Gate took care of all the paperwork, which was a big relief. Erik was very thorough, gentle with the needles, calming, and professional! Definitely consider accupuncture and Inner Gate if you are injured from an auto or bike accident.

Ok, here is my story.
I woke up one morning with a lock in my jaws. I really discovered it at my work when I could not open my mouth to eat my lunch. Struggling almost a week I went to see my dentist and she referred me to another dentist (some kind of surgery procedure). Knowing that one block away there was an acupuncture clinic, I decided to try it before going under the knife. That was my first time with acupuncture and three weeks later I was back 100%. What a joy. Thanks Inner Gate Acupuncture clinic and my doctor Casey.

This is my first experience with acupuncture, and it has now become my first stop in health care. After my first two treatments, a numb area in my leg was completely restored to normal. This was quite shocking to me, as the area was numb for more than two years, and medical doctors told me there was nothing I could do for it. The following have all responded as well: thryoid illness, knee pain, and cold symptoms.

Perhaps most surprising was severe shoulder pain which completely went away after only 30 minutes of treatment, as I didn't have time to stay for the full hour. I walked to the reception area pain free, and it felt like magic. This pain was much worse than childbirth, and I was so grateful to have it completely gone.

Everyone who works there is so friendly and I feel relaxed the minute I enter the waiting area. I highly recommend Inner Gate Acupuncture!

I was 18 hours into the birth of my first child at a birth center two blocks from Inner Gate's office. I was struggling to transition into the final stage of birth because my daughter's head had descended before the final centimeter of my cervix had released.

My midwives and I had tried just about everything from position changes, rest, fear releases, and even manual manipulation to get my daughter's head past the cervix but nothing was giving. I was in an incredible amount of discomfort, was exhausted,and was desperate for relief, which I thought at that point would only come by going to the hospital for an epidural.

While my midwives persuaded me to try chiropractic care or acupuncture first, my sister, who is a regular patient at Inner Gate Acupuncture, raced down 2 blocks and happened to find Erik Isaacson just leaving a meeting. She told him the situation, and he grabbed his kit and raced back with her to the center.

By that point I was what my partner called in my "bucking bronco" stage--fighting each contraction as my tender cervix got pinched more and more. Erik didn't so much as hesitate or balk at my condition, he very professionally and gently approached me, and slid 3 needles into my ear. He sat patiently next to the tub where I was twisting and turning, ever so often tweaking the needles.

It wasn't but 2 contractions later that my cervix released and my body immediately began to bare down on my baby. Erik stayed for about an hour and continued working the needles to aid in relaxation and opening. As quietly as he came, he removed the needles and left my midwives and partner and I to weather the final stages together.

4 hours later I had my first child, 100% naturally like I had hoped and envisioned.

Erik's demeanor and expertise in his craft were the exact tool my body needed to release and allow my baby to come into this world. The generosity of spirit and professionalism Erik demonstrated at my birth was noted and praised by all who were present in the room. We were all amazed at the effectiveness and efficiency of the acupuncture itself and I highly recommend parents to consider it as an option and alternative in their birthing experience. I am eternally grateful to have had Erik's help in realizing the natural birth I had wanted for myself and my baby. Thank you a thousand times over Erik!

I was 18 hours into the birth of my first child at a birth center two blocks from Inner Gate's office. I was struggling to transition into the final stage of birth because my daughter's head had descended before the final centimeter of my cervix had released.

My midwives and I had tried just about everything from position changes, rest, fear releases, and even manual manipulation to get my daughter's head past the cervix but nothing was giving. I was in an incredible amount of discomfort, was exhausted,and was desperate for relief, which I thought at that point would only come by going to the hospital for an epidural.

Pros: Acupuncture a Great Tool for Birth

.

If you are not going to read my entire post ?? please read this:
1)Erik is a great acupuncturist ?? very effective at treating specific ailments
2)Acupuncture is a very effective tool to MAINTAIN general health

To be honest, I could go on and on about how great the folks at Inner Gate acupuncture are. And it would be completely true. However, there are tons of reviews that provide this information. So I will try to provide a unique review.

As an engineer, I like to know HOW things work. I want a direct explanation of WHY things do what they do. I do get that there are explanations of why acupuncture works, but it doesn??t sound very scientific to me, and therefore is hard to accept.

In light of this, going to acupuncture was very hard for me. I know there is research on what acupuncture can treat, and opposing opinions of the effectiveness of acupuncture. However, I decided to try acupuncture when no other western medicine options were available for me. I had mono for 6 months, and ended up having to take 3 months off work to give my body, and my not so effective immune system a chance to heal. There was nothing to be done, except rest and eat well (to boost my immune system). I have a friend who recommended acupuncture, and decided to try it.

Thankfully, my friend recommended Erik at Inner Gate Acupuncture. While I initially went for treatment of a weak immune system, I have seen tremendous results not only in boosting my immune system, but also treatments for every day ailments.

Since I??ve professed to be a scientist ?? I will attempt to provide you with the evidence that it was the acupuncture, and specifically the acupuncture from Erik at Inner Gate, that caused the results.

While I went to acupuncture for my immune system, to specifically get over mono sooner, I found that Erik was able to identify other issues with my body. I continued to see Erik after my mono was gone, but stopped going soon after I felt better, around Jan of 2008. After that time, I was sick very often. I had colds that lasted weeks, multiple occurrences of the flu, walking pneumonia that lasted 4 months. I missed a lot of work due to illness, and generally accepted that this was the way my life would be ?? that I would just be sick often. My primary care physician treated each illness as appropriate, whether with antibiotics, anti-virals, or simply rest. I also saw an immunologist to see what was so wrong with my immune system. There were no concrete answers.

Finally, out of frustration, I began seeing Erik weekly in the Fall of 2009. I have been seeing him since, and have been so much more healthy. Every other variable has remained the same ?? food choices, stress at work, being a smoker (yes ?? I know ?? you can publically ridicule me now), not working out. But what changed was my weekly visits with Erik. Since this time, I have missed little work, and when I do get sick, Erik is very effective at treating it and preventing it from lasting more than a couple days. One specific example was a sinus infection. I went in with a throbbing sinus headache, and walked out pain free. I was pain free for 24 hrs, and then had minor pain. I was fine the next day.

Why do I think Erik is so effective? When he is doing triage of my body ?? he will identify a problem area, and then use acupressure to identify the most effective place to put the needle in to resolve the issue. He will treat multiple issues at each visit, but is also careful not to ??energize? an area when your body can not handle it. One example was when I was having stomach pain, but my immune system was also weak. He treated my stomach first, and the following weeks focused on my immune system. You??ll have to ask him why this makes sense ?? but it worked.

For two years I tried to get a diagnosis and effective treatment for my hip pain. First I was told it was LT Band, then bursitis, then piriformis syndrome. Regardless, allopathic doctors and physical therapists offered nothing that helped except cortizone injections. Walking was becoming more and more painful. Acupuncture from Inner Gate healed me, I can hike again without pain and I am filled with gratitude.

After a car accident causing whiplash, my back and shoulders hurt continually. The pain just did not seem to be getting any better, despite stretching exercises and chiropractic (don't get me wrong, these things helped too). But when I started getting acupuncture here, the pain really improved. If it had not been for Oliver's and Eric's acupuncture treatments, I would probably still be in pain every day at work while sitting at my computer. I have since moved to San Diego, and I miss this place. If you are having persistent pain, try this place out! It really helps a lot!!

Hello Eric, Oliver, Casey and team at Inner Gate,

Erik, Thank you so much for putting me at ease for my very first visit to an Acupuncturist. You are the kind of Healer that all should have. You explained, you were friendly and professional....the trifecta....My session with Casey was excellent. I look forward to my next and future visits......My drive home was euphoric and traffic didn't bother me in the least.......maybe I should have Acu every day.

Sincerely
Thomas R Anderson(Tom)

Nearly two years ago, I fell on a job related field trip. I completely severed one ligament and tore others in my knee . The injury resulted in intense rounds of physical therapy, surgery to repair and replace those ligaments followed by months of more physical therapy.
Although the physical therapy was wonderful as I regained a lot of strength in the knee and leg. But a constant throbbing pain remained and after sitting for long periods of time I was and still experience a great deal of pain when I stand and attempt to walk. Let me say here that I almost always refuse to take medication to alleviate the pain, I chose to either suffer through the pain or use herbal ointments, ice, heat, etc.
While attending a class at Portland Community College my teacher noticed the pain and difficulty I had when standing and walking during and after class, she suggested I try either acupuncture or chiropractic treatments. I then spoke to Dr. Bowman my Orthopedic Specialist and he agreed that I should try acupuncture. I was at first frightened because all I knew about acupuncture was that needles were inserted in different parts of your body to relieve all sorts of maladies and the thought of being ?stuck ?with needles was something I would never do.
My next thought was that I am a 56 yr old African American woman who grew up hearing and knowing about the power of herbs, roots, and ingesting things that may have traditionally been used in cooking or taking a bath in. So knowing that those old remedies were quite successful thought that I would try another non-traditional treatment hence the call to Inner Gate Acupuncture and am now a very willing client of Eric Isaacman, L.Ac.
Let me first say that I was never so wrong thinking the needles would cause a lot of pain, it is absolutely nothing like a shot from a needle traditionally found in medical offices or hospitals. The needles are as thin as a thread and are virtually painless.
Thanks to Eric, his skill with the instruments and techniques he learned from the masters in China I no longer have the throbbing pain in my knee. I still have pain when I sit for long periods of time, but with the continued therapy, other techniques he is attempting and massages the pain is lessening.
I whole-heartedly recommend acupuncture to any and everyone. Whatever your illness or malady, Try It ! No matter your fears, forget them, Try It. Call them for a consultation, you will be surprised at the results.

I have been going to Inner Gate for about 2 months or so. A co-worker recommended it to me. Eric has been very helpful in treating my ailments. Although I truly believe that he is a Chinese man stuck in a white man's body! Polly is so personable and friendly and EJ is very easy on the eyes!! :)
I highly recommend anyone to go there to treat whatever ails you.

I am a competitive soccer player and I was suffering from a back injury. I tried two chiropractors and physical therapy. I even tried another acupuncturist, but Inner Gate was a better experience. It's a nice, easy going environment and they do an excellent job. I always leave feeling relaxed, and pain-free. They always work to fix the problem, not just relieve pain. People always ask me if the needles hurt. When they first put the needles in, it can hurt, but only about 20% of the needles feel that way. The pain usually goes away within seconds, and if not, your acupuncturist can just remove them. It's not supposed to hurt, and you just relax into it. Most of the time I just fall asleep. Appointments are less than an hour. I would suggest it for any sort of pain, soreness, or stress relief.

Inner Gate Acupuncture has provided outstanding and consistent treatment to help me grapple with quitting smoking and the accompanying emotional challenges that follow. I have previously attempted every known method with mixed results. Oliver's insight, guidance and steady hand have proven to be invaluable toward helping me achieve a life without the stigma of nicotine addiction. My highest recommendations to the team at Inner Gate.

My shoulder was causing pain that I couldn't seem to get rid of. Massage and chiropractic helped but I thought another avenue of care might take care of the lingering pain. I saw Eric for 3 sessions and was very happy that I felt significantly better after each one. I just completed my third visit and am pain-free. Very friendly and professional staff.

After learning that my insurance covered this treatment, I met with Mark of Inner Gate Acupuncture after with several recommendations from coworkers who visit the clinic regularly. The entire staff was very friendly and professional. Mark was very thorough and receptive to the issues I wanted to address. I felt very respected throughout the entire visit and after treatment felt both relaxed and excited for my next visit.

Everyone at Inner Gate Acupuncture is nothing short of awesome...
The place exudes friendly warmth and welcome, gentle and respectful healing, abundance of knowledge, and humor...
I have had alot of body work in my life, in fact my massage therapist at my chiropracter's office referred me to Erik, and I have been benefiting from his care on a regular basis ever since - that now being about a year and a half.
The combination of modalities (chiropractic, massage and other body work, naturopathic, and now acupuncture and Chinese herbs and massage) has strengthened and enhanced my health and well-being physically, spiritually and emotionally. The addition of Chinese medicine was clearly the topping on the cake, ie: an essential part of the whole.
My issues revolve mostly around lower grade chronic muscle and joint discomfort, and also issues of energy and mood. My adrenal glands became fatigued over the years as so many of ours have - which seemed to prolong and intensify each of these issues. All of the bodywork and acupuncture, and especially I believe, the combination of naturopathic herbs and Chinese herbs (Erik's "potion" I call it) , have steadily helped me to progress to a much more comfortable, calm, and energized state of being, and for that I am extremely grateful.
I trust Erik completely (as I would anyone in their office) and his expertise, and his compassion for his clients, and for his calling / his career - is clearly genuine.
I plan on continuing to have Erik and Inner Gate Acupuncture helping to care for my being, as an ongoing
wellness, health maintenance and life enhancing (and thus very wise) choice.
I recommend Inner Gate Acupuncture highly, to all ! :)

I can't encourage you enough to check out Inner Gate. They are knowledgable, gentle and interested in what they do. I have had some not so great experiences with acupunture. This is the first time I realized all that it could do for you.

The best accupunture care you could ever ask for. After visiting Inner Gate you will know what it feels like for a practitioner to have a sincere interest and desire to make you better. The staff is amazing and acupuncture is wonderful. I wish that I could go everyday.

One morning I woke up with a slight 'kink' in my neck from apparently having slept wrong the night before. After a week or so I began to notice numbness and pain extending into my arm. I set up an appointment with my chiropractor, since this has generally been effective in the past. However, 5 or 6 chiropractic visits later with no significant progress and still suffering considerable pain, I was beginning to worry. By now the pain in my shoulder, my tricep and into my forearm was unbearable and I was experiencing an almost 80% loss of sensation in 2 fingers. Luckily, through a friend, I met a patient of Inner Gate and discovered that he too had suffered from nearly identical symptoms before his first treatment. He couldn't say enough good things about Oliver and Inner Gate. I hadn't had much experience with acupuncture and wasn't sure what to expect, however I was immediately impressed by the warmth and genuine caring of the entire Inner Gate office. After 2 visits with Oliver I began to experience noticeable pain relief. Several visits later and most of the feeling in my hand had returned and I was beginning to sleep much better. A few visits later and I was amazed to find that the pain was gone almost as if it had never happened in the first place. I still feel chiropractic medicine is beneficial for my health but now understand how incredibly powerful acupuncture can be. I am very happy to have met Oliver and the staff at Inner Gate and would highly recommend them to anyone suffering from pain.

I was desperately seeking medical help for my persistently irregular menstrual cycle, an issue I was grappling with for more than a decade. Having found no sustainable remedy anywhere, I decided to try acupuncture as the last resort. I remember calling up Inner Gate in a very dejected and somewhat skeptical tone and asking to speak with one of their practitioners. Erik called me back and I was impressed that he spent nearly 20 minutes on phone patiently answering my questions on Chinese medicine. My very first session with Erik convinced me that I was at the right place. I have been seen mostly by Oliver since then. I have found both Oliver and Erik highly knowledgeable and supremely caring, with a delightful sense of humour. I started benefiting from the treatment within 3 weeks, and now, after about 3 months of 'gentle needling' and herbs, I am very much on the path to normal health. I am always in awe of the in-depth and multidimensional analysis that Oliver carries out each time. One may argue that acupuncture, being a holistic science, is meant to be that way. But at Inner Gate, they really care for their patients as real people with genuinely unique concerns, and not just as 'patient charts'. In my opinion, this is what truly makes all the difference. Indeed, the friendly and welcoming warmth can be felt the moment one steps into the clinic. EJ, one of their support staff, has been very helpful in working with my complicated student health insurance, and I am very thankful to him for that. By the way, they have student discounts too!

In all, I am very satisfied with my experience at Inner Gate and have come to greatly respect everyone there for their dedicated service. I can never thank them enough for helping me with one of my biggest health concerns!

I remember calling up Inner Gate in a very dejected and somewhat skeptical tone and asking to speak with one of their practitioners. Erik called me back and I was impressed that he spent nearly 20 minutes on phone patiently answering my questions on Chinese medicine. My very first session with Erik convinced me that I was at the right place. I have been seen mostly by Oliver since then. I have found both Oliver and Erik highly knowledgeable and supremely caring, with a delightful sense of humour. I started benefiting from the treatment within 3 weeks, and now, after about 3 months of 'gentle needling' and herbs, I am very much on the path to normal health. I am always in awe of the in-depth and multidimensional analysis that Oliver carries out each time. One may argue that acupuncture, being a holistic science, is meant to be that way. But at Inner Gate, they really care for their patients as real people with genuinely unique concerns, and not just as 'patient charts'. In my opinion, this is what truly makes all the difference. Indeed, the friendly and welcoming warmth can be felt the moment one steps into the clinic. EJ, one of their support staff, has been very helpful in working with my complicated student health insurance, and I am very thankful to him for that. By the way, they have student discounts too!

In all, I am very satisfied with my experience at Inner Gate and have come to greatly respect everyone there for their dedicated service. I can never thank them enough for helping me with one of my biggest health concerns!

Pros: Very effective treatment, very caring people

Cons: None

I've been seeing Eric for a shoulder injury for the last month and boy have I been wowed. Might be a funny choice of words for an acupuncture experience but it's the truth. From the moment I walked in and the friendly staff greeted me with genuine smiles, I felt comfortable. I continued with treatments and have not only found him extremely knowledgeable on women's issues but medicine, in general. A great person on your wellness team, I tell you!

He is knowledgeable but approachable and very warm. Of course this is not to mention that after the first treatment my shoulder (after a year in pain) felt better (!) and I had better mobility. I was able to get back to my sporting adventures and have been excited to continue to fully heal that part of my body.

I completely trust Eric and would recommend him (and Inner Gate Acupuncture) highly to all but especially those like me suffering from sports injuries, perhaps, and women, in particular. They can of course help anyone to feel like their best selves again, however, they have absolutely helped me in the two areas I mention.

I have asthma (new), as well, and think I may elicit Eric's expertise for that. I hear acupuncture works to alleviate if not cure asthma symptoms too.

Overall, a grade A experience from front door to acupuncture table and beyond! If you are looking for acupuncture, I say your search stops here.

Pros: Moving to a new space; right now there's is small but cozy!

I have had migraines for several years and have seen many health care providers along the way. By the time I called Inner Gate Acupuncture I was feeling pretty pessimistic about my migraines and was starting to come to the conclusion that I would just need to learn to deal with them. The first time I called to make an appointment I instantly felt welcomed and cared for and my experience has been nothing short of wonderful. I have actually only been working with Casey for about 6 weeks and I can?t even begin to explain how much better I have been feeling. My migraines have significantly decreased. Actually I have not had one for about a month and I was used to having them weekly. Casey has been a complete joy to work with. I can?t even begin to express how grateful I feel to have found Inner Gate Acupuncture.

This was my first time receiving any acupuncture treatment, and I loved it! From the first time that I called, I felt very welcomed and comfortable with the staff. The whole theory and approach of Chinese medicine was explained to me very throughly and helped give me an understanding and respect of Chinese traditions. I have spoken to many other people about their experiences, and theirs was not even comparable to mine. Eric treated me, and it was really nice getting to know him and unlike other medical clinics, I actually had time to talk to him about a lot of interesting topics. He is really friendly and approachable. If you are thinking of getting acupuncture, you have to go here! You'll love it, I promise.

I hurt my back and was in severe pain. After a couple days without sleep my wife convinced me that I should try acupuncture. I was resistant as I was not at all convinced that it would work. I finally went to the clinic. The results have been fantastic as my pain when I went in was so severe that I had taken several Vicodin which did little to help.

After the first treatment I was able to sleep the night after. I went back in two days and was treated by Casey (Eric treated me the first day). After this treatment my pain was nearly gone. My third visit was with Oliver whose treatment was also very effective. Within three weeks I was pain free. I went to a couple other treatments which dealt with some pain in my left side. Often the injury on one side will mask the lessor pain on the other. This pain is also gone.

Each one of these therapist are wonderful. Each has his own personality but they are all very patient centered. When I go in I feel that I am so welcome and if I see one of them while waiting for the other (I see Erik as the main therapist) Casey or Oliver will stop by and ask how I am or how my son is doing (he went in for treatment as well.) These are wonderful guys.

I came to Inner Gate after about 7 years of chronic upper back/neck muscle spasms. These would happen several times a year and I would be stuck with limited mobility, nerve pain, stiffness and overall chronic pain for months after the initial spell had passed. A co-worker recommended I try acupuncture and gave me the clinic information after she had successfully stopped smoking after seeing Eric. I started seeing Oliver about 6 months ago and he has worked wonders! I was going twice a week and gradually that tapered off to weekly, then every other week. Now I am pain free and loving it! Before, even when I was "better" I would still hurt but didn't think anything would really help. Even physical therapy and pain medication didn't make the underlying muscle problems go away. Now I have no pain, normal mobility and feel great! No more pain pills!! All the people who work at Inner Gate are really friendly and welcoming. You feel at ease even if you're scared of needles. They listen to you and give you fabulous care. Oliver is very knowledgeable and great at what he does. Acupuncture is a great stress reliever, very relaxing and I love it. They work with my insurance and make it so easy. After my extremely positive experience I told my whole office and now everyone is going. If you are hurting or stressed out, give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Who ever thought acupuncture could be enjoyable. We who've tried it know it's effective, but fun??? At Inner Gate, one has three great guys to choose from. Three specialists, each of whom has a great deal to offer theraputically, a wonderful massage table-side manner, and a hug at the end for good measure. I started with Oliver who after a session or two referred me to Casey, the newbie. Casey's has, among others, a wonderfully potent Japanese-style massage technique in his repertoire of treatments that I have found especially helpful in addressing a persistent lower back and hip problem. We start with a discussion of my symptoms, followed by massage, then to needles and a period of deep relaxation with my choice of music to give them a chance to sink in, so to speak. I've gone weekly for a couple of months now, and have felt a marked improvement in my condition. Kudos to all at Inner Gate for creating an uplifting place of true healing.

Cons: One time my tea wasn't strained and I got little bits in my teeth.

I can't say enough about my experience at Inner Gate. I had gone through 2 years of medical testing regarding one of my legs. It was weak and numb and continuing to get worse. The western doctors still have no idea what is wrong with it.
I saw Oliver for about three months. He is wonderful at what he does, not to mention the kind of person
he is. (Erik's not so bad either : ) ) This was an amazing experience and the communication is excellent. My leg has improved and leveled off. It is still a little weak but the numbness is almost completely gone. Thanks to Oliver and Erik, acupuncture is something I will continue doing for myself for years to come.
Thanks you guys, you rock!!

I've had three treatments with Erik at Inner Gate Acupuncture over the past few weeks for pain in my left arm. Through a diagnostic process and targeted acupuncture therapy, Erik has helped to reduce the pain in my arm by 70%. He is a good practitioner with great people skills and is highly knowledgeable. The clinic is warm and nurturing. I highly recommend Inner Gate Acupuncture, particularly for those people who have tried every kind of treatment and may not know where to turn. This is most likely the place!

I started seeing Ollie at Inner Gate last December. I was coming off a year of chronic lower back pain that I just couldn't get rid of. I did months of physical therapy (religiously following my exercise plan), chiropractic treatments and deep tissue massage. While they helped somewhat, I still couldn't get rid of the pain. After just two treatments with Ollie, my back was a lot better. After four treatments, I found I could go several weeks without back pain. After six treatments, I've been without back pain for months and now only need to go back if I have a flare up. I was truly amazed at how effective acupuncture was at treating my back problems. I only wish I'd tried it sooner! Ollie and Eric are great and the office is a welcoming and relaxing environment. Can't recommend Inner Gate enough!

I went looking for an acupuncture clinic because of intense right shoulder pain that shot down the back of my arm and into my hand. I tried massage a few times but nothing was helping the pain. I went to Inner Gate got a treatment with Oliver and felt 25% better by the time I left. Over the next 3 weeks he was able to reduce the pain almost totally. The arm is now good no jolts of lightening into my hand and the shoulder is functional again. I highly recommend these guys to anyone.

I stumbled upon Inner Gate Acupuncuture (doing an on-line search) after the 8th day with a headache. All my other tricks weren't working (chiropractor, massage, meds, etc). Although I did not understand how acupunture could help my chronic pain, I assumed it wouldn't make it worse - and I was desperate at that point. My experience at Inner Gate has been top-notch. They are personable and knowledgeable without being too weird or clinical. My headache went away after one treatment. It came back, but not as bad. I've had six treatments now and besides being headache free for a month what I really notice is that I feel calmer, happier and less stressed out. I will continue to go for my well-being and to stay on top of the headaches. You can't help but feel better after spending an hour at Inner Gate.

I went to Inner Gate Acupuncture after sending almost 4 years trying to solve some digestive issues using traditional medical methods. The excellent service I received at Inner Gate was the first time in so long that I was finally able to find relief from the chronic pain I was experiancing . I found Inner Gate on the internet and made an appointment with Erik, not only is he an extremely kind person but he was so professional, that made discuss an often embarassing situation easy. I highly recommend Inner Gate Acupuncture whether you have had acupuncture before or this is your first time you won't be disappointed with the friendly and very knowledgable service you receive.

I had been receiving chiropractic treatments since having an auto accident in April. When visiting out of town, a friend recommended acupuncture and I had a couple of treatments. The minute I returned, I sought out an acupuncturist. I was drawn to Inner Gate by the credentials I saw on their website. The website also portrayed caring practitioners. I made an appointment right away.

Erik did an indepth interview and examination followed by a treatment. I immediately felt better, both physically and emotionally. I felt assured that I was in good hands.

After several visits, Erik suggested using acupuncture in conjunction with chiropractic. So, we began a series of intense treatments, using both modalities and I have begun to improve.

During this time, I studied more about acupuncture and have referred several friends. I'm not a young chick so I've seen plenty of practitioners in my lifetime. I'd have to say that I've never experienced a more caring and conscientious individual than Erik.
