Couldn't recommend Dr. Stella Pun enough for the facial acupuncture. She is knowledgeabe and skilled. And it is not just about the facial treatment, Dr. Puntreats patient as a whole and recommend the herbal tea/ chinese medicine for the chi instagnation or any other problems one may have.

Dr Amanda was able to really help my insomnia through acupuncture. After a few treatments, I have been sleeping more solidly and waking up less during the night. I would recommend this place if you have sleeping problems. They will be able to help.

Can’t recommend this place enough. Being going here for acupuncture and moxibustion and it has been greatly improving my organ functionality. Especially the liver. I initially came in here due to frequently abdominal pain that could not be diagnosed with western medicine. Ever since receiving frequent treatments I no longer have abdominal pain, increase energy with more restful nights (with eliminations of night sweats), and decreased stress. Would recommend anyone to Dr. Yingying Cong.

As an alumna, I am grateful I chose to study at the ACATCM. All my instructors were passionate about teaching, had superior knowledge to share, and genuinely cared about each student. As acupuncturists themselves, they had real-world experience to share with us to build a successful practice. When it came to preparing for the board exams, they put in time and effort to ensure we were well-prepared; it was evident they genuinely wanted to see each student succeed. The entire ACATCM staff helped me throughout my time at the ACATCM. I would highly recommend the ACATCM.

As someone who works with the ACATCM, I wish I would have done it sooner. The work environment is healthy and friendly and really challenges me to think bigger and outside the box to better, not only my own practice, but the future of acupuncture. I really enjoy working with the front staff who are very friendly and always willing to help. They do a great job interacting with patients and students as well. I really enjoy the Huatuo Clinic which is partnered with the ACATCM. The downtown location is modern and spacious. They offer all equipment needed to practice many modalities including a state-of-the-art heat-sensitive moxibustion machine.

What an amazing experience! As a grocery service worker, I spend my days on my feet, which often leaves me with unexplained muscle soreness requiring Tylenol. Upon my family doctor's recommendation, I decided to give this place a chance. Despite my initial reservations about acupuncture and massage, I am so glad I did. I booked a 1.5-hour appointment, with an hour dedicated to massage and half an hour to acupuncture. The professionalism of the staff and their friendly service made me feel truly pampered. Throughout my therapy session, I felt deeply relaxed, and the staff offered invaluable health advice. The relief I experienced from my soreness was remarkable. I will definitely be returning and recommending this place to everyone I know!!
