Reviews of Acupuncture

Dr. William Duarte is a gifted healer. After years of unsuccessful attempts with western medicine, I was fortunate to find William and with his help, my daughter Cristina overcame years of struggle with asthma.

Years later, William offered our family hope, when our youngest son at the age of 7 was diagnosed with a seizure disorder. Between the seizures and the drugs that were prescribed to treat his condition he was nearly incapacitated and barely able to function. Treating him with acupuncture, William offered relief that drugs did not provide, and over time our son’s health and quality of life improved dramatically. He is now a thriving young man on his way to finishing college.

I have referred countless people to William because I have a profound faith in him as a skilled wholistic physician, and regardless of the condition, I always hear the highest praise from friends and family who become his patients.

We are forever grateful to Dr. William Duarte for helping our family heal, as well as for the wisdom and compassion he has demonstrated to us all for over 20 years. — Elizabeth Perry

Highly Recommended
As a 17 year long patient I can honestly say that Dr. William Duarte is the most skilled, caring, and insightful healer I know. I came to him in the 90’s after a car wreck and he turned a non-believer (I thought acupuncture was a bunch of woo-woo hippy crap) into a believer. I have referred him over the years to everyone I know with rave reviews from all he worked with. What I especially love about William is hard to put into words… compassionate comes to mind but doesn’t really describe him adequately. William can heal your body and at the same time release negative emotions that you don’t even know you have until the tears are pouring down your face. If you are looking for healing for your body and mind, call William. He’s the best! — Chelsea Collier

Reviews of Yoga Therapy

I was experiencing troubling long COVID symptoms and heard that yoga therapy could help. Right away the breathing practices Sonia showed me helped to regulate my nervous system and restore my breath. The movements coordinated with my breath are also helping me to rebuild strength. I now feel like I have the tools to manage long COVID and restore my health. – L.S.

As a trauma survivor, it is a novelty to experience my body as a place of safety and I am so thankful to have been able to begin this relationship with myself. Sonia is such a knowledgeable facilitator of body awareness and attunement and it lends to her skill and ability that this work is so deeply felt. Yoga therapy with Sonia has been very powerful and I will be forever grateful for the insight and foundation she has provided. – M.R.

In just a few months, Sonia has taught me more surprising and helpful techniques and approaches for improving my mobility than I expected in a year. Sonia is patient, thoughtful, non-judgemental, and devoted to supporting her clients’ holistic strength and freedom of movement. Plus size clients are treated with respect, equality, and professional understanding of their unique needs. Her approach has changed my understanding of what is required to create and maintain strength, mobility, and physical well-being. – J.B.

I started yoga therapy sessions with Sonia because of the side effects I was experiencing from anxiety medication. With the support of Sonia and my psychiatrist, I was able to come off the drug. While the drug helped me get through a difficult time in my life, my regular yoga practice now empowers me to manage my emotions naturally. – F.S.

Reviews of Massage Therapy

Thank you for the great massage the other day. My shoulders and back feel much more relaxed. I look forward to another massage is the future! Thanks, Jessica. — Jason B.

Jessica is great with her hands. I went to see her for shoulder and elbow pain and I received amazing results. Jessica understands pain so well I encourage anyone to try her. You’d appreciate her unique talent. She is like a physical therapist with a tender touch and a big smile. — June M.

Jessica is very knowledgeable about which muscles in the body are affecting others. I now have movement and a lack of pain that I haven’t had in a long time. Highly recommend! — Anonymous

Jessica seems almost intuitive in understanding my body and working on parts that seemed “stuck.” I’ve been able to breathe more openly and catch when I start moving in past patterns that led to “stuckness.” She has a gentle and facilitative way in her insightful words too. Looking forward to another session! — Kent B.

I’ve had a lot of bodywork of the years, this was really helpful…I received acupuncture for a hurt shoulder and a relaxing massage. Both practioners are very professional, sensitive and really likable. The clinic just feels good and they’ve plenty of free parking. — R.H.
