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 Private Yoga Instruction

The fluidity of the movement is distinctively different from other types of yoga, and it is more meditative than any other I have done, but most remarkably I’m finding tremendous relief from long standing back pain caused by years of dance and ice skating. — Kathleen D.

Sonia is a marvelous teacher. The work I’ve done with her is subtle yet transformative. Gradually my body is strengthening and lengthening and my mind is gaining clarity too. — T.I.

I love how Sonia focuses on the breath. It really ties everything together bringing me deeper into each pose and keeping me present on the mat. I always feel amazing afterwards. — Heather B.

Sonia’s instructions are clear and simple. Her voice, pacing and silence are all so well moderated and combined. She does not fill the space with extra words. — Charlie T.

Reviews of Counseling

I began therapy with Robert because my life was spiraling downward, out of control, and heading for the worst possible crash. Robert revealed to me the true source for all my problems and then gently guided me on a therapeutic path to recovery. Because of his wisdom and focused support, and my genuine long-term efforts to change, my life turned around and is now very good. Thanks to Robert, I have “tools” to manage life’s challenge’s at a very deep understanding for the nature of life’s problems. I feel very fortunate that he is my therapist! — T.K.

Robert saved my marriage and what I learned along the way was so much more valuable than I could have ever anticipated. As difficult as it was to stand on the precipice of losing a long time relationship, what I learned through the experience was invaluable and freeing.
Understanding the role of ego has been quite frankly, life changing. I still find myself at times slipping into old patterns, but I hear Robert’s words in my ear and I gently guide myself back on track. Robert’s approach is always kind, understanding and never judgmental. It wasn’t easy – but it was worth more than I could ever express. Thank you, Robert. — Julia C.

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.
