“Crystal is a kind, generous and highly effective healer! I see her as often as I can, and her massage and cranio-sacral work keeps me healthy and strong. Crystal is super-smart, with a deep knowledge of both the physical and energetic aspects of the human body, making her a true partner in good health. For example, I travel a ton, running a small international consulting firm – and seeing Crystal this past winter meant that I never once got the winter colds and flus that my family did. She’s also helped me with specific injuries (e.g., strained foot) and more chronic problems (e.g., digestive tract issues). I can’t recommend Crystal enough – she’s amazing.”

“Liana is a sensitive and intelligent healer. She has worked with me using both acupuncture and herbal therapy and the results have been stunning… After several acupuncture sessions with Liana and herbal therapy, my headaches vanished. I have now been completely headache free for over a year. It feels miraculous! Thanks Liana!!!”

“I have never struggled this hard to write a review before, but I want to do this one justice… I came to Liana for my first acupuncture experience about 4 months ago after reading so many glowing reviews about her on Yelp. At that point, I didn’t have a diagnosis for my health problems but now I know it is probably ALS. I went in with zero expectations and not much knowledge about acupuncture but it had been recommended to me several times because I had been complaining for months about tight hamstrings (so tight they would “pop” with each step). I got off the table for the first time and…total relief. NO popping. I was AMAZED and became a believer on the spot. I have been back to Liana every week since then. She has performed similar miracles on my shoulder injury from a fall, integrated Chinese Herbal Medicine, and has continued to work on my overall condition in ways I don’t even understand. Acupuncture is symptom relief so some of the nagging stiffness and soreness comes back between visits but I have definitely seen improvement over the long-term. Liana has become a central part of my health journey — body, mind, and spirit. Acupuncture is the one treatment that has actually helped my physical condition and Liana administers it with such care and skill that I can easily turn my attention to relaxing and recuperating during the visit. She truly cares deeply about her patients and goes above and beyond every single time I come in. I have often felt that she’s a better therapist than my own! I am truly and forever grateful for Liana. You should go see her. You will not regret it!!”

“I started seeing Liana for acupuncture back in June 2014, after doctors failed to help me with multiple symptoms (joint pain, fatigue, heart palpitations, etc.) that developed after a course of strong antibiotics. Doctors wanted me to take more prescription drugs, which I felt was exactly what my body did not need. I decided to try acupuncture, and found Liana online. I honestly did not know what to expect since acupuncture was new to me, but I went in with an open mind. My first visit with Liana was unlike any other visit with a practitioner. She spent an hour and a half with me discussing my health history and progression of symptoms as well as the essence of acupuncture, which although complex, made a lot of sense to me with her simplified explanation. Her expertise, compassion, and calming spirit are invaluable. I love Liana’s whole wellness (body, mind, soul) approach. After 4 months, I continue to see her almost every week because I am finally beginning to feel in tune with my body and in control of my health again. Most of my symptoms have improved or resolved with a combination of acupuncture and taking better care of myself. Liana is one-of-a-kind, and I highly recommend her!”

“I have been seeing Liana twice a week for about 2 months now, and I’ve enjoyed great improvements in both my physical and mental health. I had done acupuncture in the past at other DC locations, but never experienced such extraordinary relaxation and pain relief. Liana is warm, friendly, and very well trained and experienced in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. In my first session I went into a deep relaxation state and experienced pain relief for a weak ankle, my bad knees and lower back problems. After a few sessions, my friends and family commented that I seemed less stressed, happier and had more energy. I’ve had seven knee surgeries, including full knee replacement, and Liana has greatly relieved my knee and accompanying back pain. She has also helped with an ankle that had been badly sprained last year, and with my life-long struggle with TMJ. In addition, if you have good health insurance, the costs can be low, and they are great about working out the insurance, and scheduling a variety of appointment times. Please treat yourself to Liana’s warmth and expertise. You will never leave a session disappointed — only relaxed and pain free. You deserve it!”

“Liana’s treatment helped me when nothing else could. I originally went to her for acupuncture, as per my mom’s recommendation (actually, my entire family now goes to Liana), but I quickly realized that my sessions were more than just physically altering – she has helped my mind, body, and spirit to cohesively heal with acupuncture and herbal formulas. Liana is an extraordinarily gentle and compassionate healer who truly listens to and fully addresses what is going on in my life. I now am virtually symptom free for the first time as a result of Liana’s care.”

“Liana is completely attentive, supportive, gentle, wise, and caring… I had expected that acupuncture could treat physical issues, but I have been surprised and delighted to find that Liana is also addressing the health of my mind and spirit. Since I began acupuncture and herbal therapy with Liana, aches and pains have disappeared and my sleep has improved, but deeper changes have also occurred. For example, I find that I now express myself more clearly and confidently. With Liana’s support and care, I am moving toward the goal of living in alignment with my heart.”
