Words of Gratitude

"Thanks to Chelsie’s extensive knowledge of Orthopedic Acupuncture plus her ability to use many other modalities of Chinese Medicine at varying stages of my healing process, I was able to fully recover from intense radiating shoulder pain. Chelsie has a unique ability to ask just the right questions, pinpoint a problem area, devise correct solutions, and then to skillfully apply needles. I can recommend Chelsie’s services with 100% satisfaction."

"As an osteopathic physician with a passion for holistic medicine, I have tried many healing modalities and seen many different practitioners. I have known Leila for over two years in a professional capacity, as a patient, and as a friend. I feel privileged to have experienced her many valuable healing talents as well as been blessed to hear her deep wisdom. She has treated me with multiple modalities including harmonium, sound healing, essential oils, and counseling. I have received her sound healings which not only have helped with various pains, but definitely played a role in helping me get pregnant as she worked on areas to promote fertility. My experience with her harmonium treatments were so amazing! Firstly, it was unlike any other energetic treatment I have had before where I could clearly hear my thoughts and emotions ... then see them released. I had immediate and sustained improvements in my relationships following the treatments and improvements in energy. The harmonium treatments helped to heal my emotions during my pregnancy which in turn helped me conceive an extremely happy and aware baby. She has also graciously shared a lot of wisdom with me from her knowledge of Ayurveda, her life experiences and her deep spiritual work that has helped me with the various life challenges that I have faced. She has truly changed my life for the better and I know that she would do amazingly well in any healing practice that she joined."

"I can't Recommend Chelsie enough if you are looking for relief with Acupuncture. It says a lot that I, myself, am an Acupuncturist and choose Chelsie to help decrease my stress levels and anxiety. I drive over an hour to see her! Not only is she intuitive, she is technically skilled and wonderfully kind. She is really invested in my wellbeing. I look forward to every treatment. Thanks Chelsie!"

"Chelsie is amazing! I had knee pain for over 6 months. It hurt so bad that I could no longer squat. I saw a physical therapist, did stretches and nothing was helping. Chelsie did a series of "ortho acupuncture" on me. At first I thought this wasn't going to work like everything else, but then I realized I had more range of motion. I was able to squat a little deeper without the pain of me knee. I received a total of 4 treatments from Chelsie and by the end of it I was pain free. I've been able to workout again and I'm very thankful for her knowledge and skills. She literally saved me. Thank you Chelsie!"

"I have been under the care of Leila Astarabadi for over a year now. She is true a healer. Leila has the skill to move your energy and create a real shift in your body. Last year my husband was terminally ill. I would go see Leila every week. She would fill me up and keep me going. After my husband, my body has had different pain issues she has helped me with. I had lower abdomen pain for over a week and was about to go see a doctor. One visit with Leila and the pain left. She also has spoken so many words of wisdom and guidance. So much good information I always take time to write it down after our sessions so I won’t forget. I highly recommend Leila. Over the last 25 years I have seen many alternative/eastern medicine practitioners. Leila is special and unique."

Kind Regards, Susan


"Chelsie is one of my favorite acupuncturists! I go to her regularly and I always call it "the goddess treatment". She really knows how to feel into what I need for that day, leaving me feeling nourished and balanced, and her technique is amazing! I am extremely needle/Qi sensitive and with her the treatments are always painless. Chelsie's huge heart is felt in her treatments, she has a genuine concern for helping her patients, and she is extremely knowledgeable. She also goes above and beyond to make the experience calming with music, light massage, and aromatherapy. I found it to be a beautiful addition. I highly recommend going to Chelsie for all your acupuncture needs!"

"I came to Chelsie to receive Acupuncture to attempt to relieve pain due to a Sciatic Nerve issue I had been experiencing for over 16 months. Although I did not initially know what to expect from Acupuncture, Chelsie was attentive each session; she listened to me as I explained my problem and progression and what I hoped to achieve; and she thoroughly explained the process to ease my anxiety. After a few sessions, the pain began to leave and I now no longer have any pain at all! The bonus.... Chelsie was also able to assist me with some sleep issues I was having as well! I can now recommend acupuncture to anyone with the same issues I had and I certainly recommend Chelsie who was so knowledgable and reassuring throughout each session!"

"For years I have had trouble with my knees with chronic swelling. When I would walk up the stairs to a treatment I was in terrible pain. After Chelsie started treating my knees, when I walked down the stairs after the treatment, the pain would be immediately gone. I have had ten treatments and I have been pain free now for months!  I know where to go if I ever start having knee problems again. I also get treated for water retention and the treatments leave me feeling pounds lighter."

"Chelsie’s intuitive spirit makes her a phenomenal Acupuncturist.  She has provided me with treatments for stress, grief, and menopause symptoms. The effectiveness of her treatments continues to amaze me every time. My symptoms are often reduced immediately and after several treatments, I have long term relief. I have found that Eastern Medicine enhances my health and makes my immune system stronger. Whether I use Chinese Herbs and Acupuncture alone or in combination of Western Medicine, I am confident that I am supporting my body’s natural ability to heal itself and my overall health is enhanced."

"I have always had an extreme phobia of needles. I was so incredibly surprised after my first treatment to find that acupuncture is in fact quite painless. I cannot believe how relaxing the treatments are. I come in to be treated for insomnia and I always fall asleep during the sessions. Treatments with Chelsie have improved my sleep immensely."

GB, General Contractor, Taft, CA
