Elizabeth is awesome!!!!!!!! I have a lower back injury that western doctors could never fix or even make feel better. Went to get accupuncture and with the consultation she asked about my legs, i told her it was my back and she began to tell me about the muscles that attached from my back and through my legs. She explained that my back could never relax/heal beacue of the tension and down ward pull from my leg muscles. I sware one treatment on my legs and my whole back felt like new!!!!! Not to mention the message i recieved after the treatment just put iceing on the cake. I have been seeing her almost regularly now for the last three years.

I have been well-cared for by Elizabeth for over a year and several visits. Whatever need I have, she takes the time to thoughtfully evaluate and treat it. I have always found relief, and leave with very helpful information to go along with it in the way of ideas, and other health referrals. The area near Castro Valley is very fortunate to have her professional services available in a very comfortable and relaxed setting!

I was refered to Elizabeth from very close friends whom have not seen me for 6 months. When they did see me they cried. I had become so ill that they did not recognize me. I have (GP) Gastroparesis, My stomach and small intestine do not move. So in turn I can not process food. My body has been starving itself for 1 + years. I also have (SM) Syringomelia. This is a cystic Tumor inside your spinal cord. Side effects are paralysis of all four extemities, vision, or paralysis of other parts of my body + sever neuropothy pain. I had this for 4 years. I was only paralysed of my legs for a short time, the cyst can change or elongate at any time. Neurological defecets come and go.

My bigest problem at the time is the starvation. I have had not sucess from Western medician, i.e. Kaiser Hospitals. They are the one's that cause the paralysis of my stomach. I had emergency surgery in 08 for H-Pylori ulcer perferation. Emedeitley following the surgery I became ill, I started with vomiting daily, Lost 22lbs in 10 days. They did nothing and have continue to do nothing. I'm 5' 7" tall and I only weigh 100lbs. My body does not produce iron any more, I lost half my hair, My skin became very thick and tuff. That's enough of that! You get the picture.

I have done most of everything on my own. Bought a number of books on nutrition, and I have had enough suscess to say I am working full time still as a veterinary surgery tech. and I take care of my 2 year old grandson two day a week.

I started with treatment with Elizabeth 4 weeks ago. I go once weekly. I have gained 9lbs, and I can eat more sold foods. You can't emagine how that feels. Last night I saw her and was in the process of a 2 DAY MIGRAIN, She took one look at my neck and worked on me for one hour. I't was so cool because I woke up this morning and the Migrain was gone. Off to work I went. Thank you Elizabeth for taking the time to research my condition and help me. I truley beleive I would have gotton worse. You helped me avoid a feeding tube, and your helping me get my life back and to achive my goals. Which are, Weighing 135lbs, playing soccer agian, and riding my motorcycle again. I know by next year this with happen with your help. Thank you Thank you Thank you.
Sincerely; Debbieducati

Definately!! Top of the line healer with a great touch of
compassion and pragmatisim and knowledge.
She is awesome! I went to see her because I have a bad case of Sciatica. Not only did she do a great job with the needles, but she also recommended special herbs that have totally taken the pain away. So much better than any Advil, Iboprofen, Tylenol, etc. I highly recommend her. Yes, yes, yes.

Elizabeth Stahmer of Dancing Grass Medicine is the perfect example of a true Care Giver in every sense of the word...
I chose alternative care instead of the standardized pill pushing and endless paperwork/approval system just to be sent away with no real understanding of what's really going on and why it is that I'm not healing.
Well, Elizabeth understands this and gives insightful and caring diagnosis as well as explains every aspect of what is going on. She takes the time to truly care for you and help you through your healing process.
I personally have had immediate and incredibly amazing results!
I went in with pain...and left feeling better...plain and simple!
I came away with knowledge and felt assured. Priceless!!
I would highly recommend Dancing Grass Medicine! Elizabeth is absolutely a gift to any community she serves and her office is in Castro Valley. I would travel miles just to see her because I truly feel that I can't get any more honest and caring results anywhere else.
Thank you Dancing Grass Medicine!!

I have been going here for just a couple of visits. It's affordable, they take insurance, if not...its still affordable. I felt very comfortable and sincerly cared about my well being. Place is clean and relaxing. I call Elizabeth my "magic wand". Within the couple of visits, I have very little pain and I know there is a light at the end of my tunnel. Thank you Elizabeth, your the best !!

DEFINITELY what I was looking for!!

This is not my first time to acupuncture, or Physical Therapy, or electrostimulation treatment. I had a left side frozen shoulder about 2 years ago and underwent over 120 visits for treatment over an 18-month period. Liz Stahmer at Dancing Grass Medicine is now working on my right frozen shoulder.

I was a bit skeptical about any therapy as my current shoulder condition is worse than the other one was. What a HUGE difference she is compared to my previous experience!! It has been an amazing course of recovery and I hope others can find out about Liz. It has really been productive time spent with results well beyond what I had expected.

After working with Liz I for a short time noticed 3 things:

1. My shoulder felt better, not just for the next 4 hours but the entire next week. In subsequent visits this has been true as well, and I feel the motion I??m gaining is permanent.

2. I have about 50% of my normal range of motion back after just one month. This is amazing considering where I started, and, compared to 2 years ago where I??d go to PT all month for my other shoulder and get ~5% gain (only to have it spring back to where it started).

3. Liz is able to make another part of my shoulder better at EACH visit. It??s worth the time because every time I??ve gone there in the past weeks, we have improved.

Liz has an intuitive way of working with me and responding specifically to how my shoulder is responding. We have a plan for how to work with the shoulder (one of the most difficult areas I understand) and each week she flexes this to what my shoulder needs. She is able to read my shoulder and push it when it??s ready. She has a great, easy but deeply knowldgeable manner as a medical practicioner focused on making me better ?? I find this a refreshing change.

Medicine especially traditional Western medicine does not always provide well being or health, however acupuncture with Liz has been well worth the time, expense and effort I??ve put into it.

I started seeing Elizabeth for fertility issues, specifically PCOS. Elizabeth has definitely worked wonders for my PCOS.

While we were working on my PCOS I got sick with the flu. The flu only lasted two days, my husband who is not seeing Elizabeth was sick with the flu for two weeks. After my flu I got a head cold that lasted two days, my husband got the same head cold that lasted another two weeks again he is not seeing Elizabeth.

After my head cold my allergies started, I have had allergies for the last 10 years I usually have to take some kind of pill but one visit with Elizabeth and I stopped taking pills for my allergies.

Not only does Elizabeth help me with my physical health she also helps me with my mental and emotional health. She is so warm and caring. I love Elizabeth. I really fee comfortable and safe in our sessions and that the sessions are helping me achieve great health!

I went to Elizabeth Stahmer on the recommendation of friend. I had severe sciatic nerve pain. I was spending most of my day flat on my back, not able or wanting to do much of anything. She gave me incredible relief. I am now getting stronger every day and have no more pain medication side effects. (I've had back surgeries - that didn't solve the problem) Elizabeth is in a class of her own.

I highly recommend Dancing Grass Medicine to everyone! My results with Elizabeth Stahmer have been amazing. Though I was reluctant to be stuck with needles, my acupuncture experience was nothing like I expected; It didn't hurt a bit! She has assisted my healing process in various areas, from my minor stomach issues to my positive recovery of near fatal pregnancy complications. Elizabeth has also taught me how to deal with stress, weight loss and my health issues through her knowledge and advice on herbs and nutrition. I have been seeing Elizabeth for just over a year, and her dedication to my health continues to catch and correct what other doctors haven't been able to fix. I live in Antioch and drive over an hour to see her. She is a priceless addition to my health and wellness team.

I'd been suffering with knee pain for nearly 3 years, (the consequences of being an old soccer player) until Elizabeth's competent, common sense and focused care. I experienced substantial and lasting improvements in a very short time. Can't recommend her highly enough!!

I was referred to Elizabeth by my chiropractor, who also sees her. Within three visits there was a huge amount of relief in my neck and shoulders. I have my husband seeing her also and she has done wonders for him too. I tried seeing a Kaiser acupuncturist (because of the coverage), but the technique was totally different (no hands on). I exclusively see Elizabeth now, I don't trust my body with anyone else.

I've been going to Elizabeth for the past four years and am very happy with her services. She is the best and the only way you will ever blessed by her presence and knowledge is to go see her! Don't waste any more time looking for other acupuncturists if you want to start feeling better. I would and have been recommending Elizabeth to all my friends, family and clients - You will too!

Elizabeth Stahmer is, by far, the best Acupuncturist in the East Bay. Because of the success I have had as a patient I continue to refer my massage therapy clients to her. Each of them, in turn, has sung her praise and not one has been disappointed.
Not only does Elizabeth possess extraordinary skills as an Acupuncturist, she also genuinely cares about every patient who walks into her clinic. She sees one patient at a time, not two, three or four as is the case in many clinics. Her ability to nurture those professional relationships and take as much time as necessary with each patient sets her apart from the stereotypical "get them in, get their payment, get them out" approach that is all too prevalent in that industry.
Do yourself a huge favor and make an appointment. She will exceed your expectations.
