Client Testimonials

Migraines and chronic daily headaches had taken complete control of my life. I could not work, and even the simplest of activities had become extremely difficult. The anxiety that plagued me as a result of the stress of feeling miserable all the time became incapacitating. I had been to various doctors including a neurologist and had been prescribed a variety of prescription drugs–all of which did little to help me and had multiple undesirable side effects. Out of desperation I decided to try acupuncture. I have been Polina Bowler’s patient for two months now and the results have been very positive. My chronic daily headaches are virtually non-existent and my migraines have lessened both in intensity and frequency. Acupuncture has helped me tremendously. I am able to start participating in my life again without fear that every action will cause a migraine. Polina Bowler is both professional and sympathetic. She treats not only the specific issue but the WHOLE PERSON. Her acupuncture treatments bring the body and mind back into balance.

I have been seeing Polina for several months for various problems. She has always delivered a positive result, but the most dramatic improvement I’ve had so far occurred this past week. I had pinched a nerve in my neck and was in excruciating pain. The injury was so severe that I began to experience flu-like symptoms and depression. Out of complete desperation, I began taking muscle relaxers and vicodin but even these strong prescriptions were not helping. Finally, I got the energy to drive to Polina’s office, and a MIRACLE happened!!! Only a few minutes after the treatment began, so much tension and trapped energy released itself, and, when the session was done, I could suddenly move my neck and 75% of the pain had disappeared!!! I couldn’t believe it! I like to say that Polina performed a miracle, but I know my improvement was due to her skill and expertise. I am very fortunate to have found her treatment and would recommend her to absolutely anyone!

I started seeing Polina a year ago when my husband and I were having trouble conceiving.  I saw her twice a week for about two months when I became pregnant.  I’m sure it was a mixture of things that got me pregnant but going to Polina helped me relax and she was also a good person to talk to when I was stressed about not being able to get pregnant.  I was receiving acupuncture alongside herbs.  We now have a healthy 2 month old baby boy!


My energy is great, my sugar cravings are gone, and my mood has transformed entirely.  I came to Shaina because I was exhausted all the time, craving chocolates and sweets all day long, and I was in a foul mood most of the day.  I especially hated it because I had no patience for anyone in my office, and at home.  Six weeks later, my energy is great, my sugar cravings are gone, and my mood has transformed entirely.  I am so grateful to feel like myself again, and to be able to lead and parent from a more compassionate and patient place.  Yay for patience, self-care, and healthy food!!!

Working with Shaina has been a great experience!  I can tell that she is listening to what I’m telling her, and gives me specific advice that works with my life.  I saw results pretty much immediately and have been feeling a lot better and healthier.

Edward is a true healer!!  He embodies an essence of pure kindness, compassion, honesty, integrity, empathy, and humor in his Reiki healing sessions.  He has helped me tremendously with an old leg injury and a new onset hip pain.  I feel an incredible unconditional loving energy at every session!  Some of his Reiki healing visits give me an incredible amount of energy while others leave me with a peaceful bliss and tranquil feeling.  He is a gifted soul and I am so thankful to have him in my life.  I highly recommend Edward for anyone looking for amazing guidance on their spiritual and physical healing journey!

Sophia M.

Edward is a master.  I have been going to him for about a year now and I will never go to anyone else for Reiki healing!  His work has helped me in ways that I never imagined.  I have a high stress job and Edward’s healing sessions have had a giant impact when it comes to keeping my stress and anxiety in check.  His sessions have greatly reduced the overall tension I am often guilty of holding in my mind, body, and soul.  My friends, family, and doctors have all commented on how I am noticeably more balanced, relaxed, and content.  Thank you so much Edward!

Elaine N.

I went to Edward for treatment for a number of consecutive weeks.  I found him to be highly personable, genuinely concerned with my well-being, extremely professional and most importantly, highly skilled in the art of Reiki.  I would heartily recommend his expertise and services.

I never thought I could feel comfortable and safe with a person I did not know, but this happened with my first session with Bianca.  As a teenager, I find it challenging to find someone to understand me fully and not judge me for what I’m going through.  She is fun, caring, and patient and really easy to talk to.  I could freely express myself and my fears knowing she will be there to guide me and overcome my problems.  I could see a difference with my depression since our second session and I couldn’t feel better.  She’s the best!

I went to Bianca looking to improve my digestion.  After struggling with Candida, Celiac Disease, and a handful of other ailments I was desperate.  After only 2 sessions with Bianca, I feel like and entirely new person.  I could eat so many things I had avoided for so long without any negative reactions.  I sleep better and feel better than I have in years.  I cannot recommend Bianca more!


AMAZING!  Polina Bowler is extremely polite and professional. Each treatment was slightly different, depending on my health conditions: acupuncture, cupping, magnets, Chinese Herbs, etc.  Polina explained everything in detail and her information was most beneficial!
