Testimonials

After three years of suffering with neck and back pain, countless doctor visits, three unproductive rounds of physical therapy, pain injections, and consultation with a neurosurgeon, I finally found my solution in Allen King. I wish I'd tried acupuncture sooner.

Allen King is a terrific diagnostician who is both knowledgeable and curious in determining root causes of discomfort and pain. I generally leave sessions with him feeling healthier and better equipped to make adjustments leading to greater overall well-being.

Allen is really good at synthesizing seemingly unrelated ailments and finding their true origin. He told me to stop eating dairy months before a registered nutritionist advised the same. Understanding how emotional and physical health intersect and feed off each other, Allen is a true holistic practitioner. I've recommended him to several friends who echo my praise of his work.
