I particularly appreciate that Tony takes the time to listen to how I’m feeling at the beginning of each appointment.Treatments are tailored to how I’m feeling on that day. Having arthritis in multiple joints, how I feel on any given day can vary depending on the weather and my activities, so I need that kind of flexible approach. He also has a very calm presence that I find very reassuring.

This was my first time receiving an acupuncture treatment. I wanted to focus on anxiety and Tony made me feel veryrelaxed. The treatment was super meditative and the effects are so wonderful and long lasting. All of my previous thoughts about acupuncture was cleared up. It’s something I plan on doing as a steady treatment for my GAD.

After a debilitating accident I was left with multiple broken ribs and the most intense pain of my life. At my MDs suggestion, I tried acupuncture. The first session was amazing as I had never had a medical professional take sucha complete history and, though apprehensive, I totally relaxed into the treatment. The course of treatment was very instrumental in my giving up the pain meds I was on. I really appreciated the gentle care and relaxation at each session. I was skeptical about acupuncture when I first started , but after a relatively short course of treatment I would, and have, recommended Acupuncturist Tony Watkins to friends and family in need.

Tony not only helped me alleviate my back pain with his acupuncture but with his bedside manner, I felt extremely comfortable and relaxed as he spoke to me. He really listened to all my concerns, had a very comprehensive approach. SinceI've been getting treatments my sleep has improved tremendously. My cats even notice the change!! Cats are very sensitive to your vibe!

Tony was absolutely exceptional in treating me with acupuncture. He listened to my problem areas and made sure he knew every detail of my concerns. I had never done acupuncture before and he made sure to walk me through every step.He answered every question in detail and ensured I was comfortable. I have seen Tony for many sessions since and have always had a positive experience. I have referred friends to him as well and they are also so happy with their treatments. Thank you Tony !

Tony is an excellent acupuncturist. With his help, I am now free of sleeping problems and wake up fresh and ready for the day. Another problem that Tony helped me with is afternoon fatigue. The treatments help in keeping me alertand energetic throughout the day. In addition, he is personable and attentive.
