“I came in to see Juliette Aiyana, L.Ac., herbalist for acupuncture in order to control my migraines, but she surpassed all of my expectations. Since our first meeting, I have now been migraine free for 7 months and completely off all medication. I had suffered from migraines since I was 8 years old, with occurrences ranging from once a month to four times per week. The preventive medication prescribed by my doctor was ineffective and I was unwilling to increase the dosage any further. This is when I decided to seek Juliette’s help.

On our first meeting, Juliette was extremely welcoming. She explained how many sessions of acupuncture were needed and also suggested some minor dietary adjustments. After the first session and after following Juliette’s dietary advice, I quickly noticed a vast improvement in my migraines.

Over the course of my acupuncture sessions, we began reducing the amount of migraine medication that I was taking, until I was finally completely off of it. And still I have not had a migraine. Juliette was both kind and professional at every session.

Even though I have finished my acupuncture sessions, Juliette still takes the time to check in every now and then to ensure that my migraines have not returned. It has truly been a blessing and a relief to be migraine free for these past 7 months. I highly recommend anyone who suffers from migraines to make an appointment with Juliette Aiyana, L.Ac., Herbalist.” -Female Patient Age 20
