Rave Reviews             Francesca Ferrari, Licensed Acupuncturist

"I've been to several acupuncturists and since I don't do well with needles, I could never relax and get effects of the treatment.  Francesca, however, has a way with the needles and a comfortable space which allows me to totally relax, zone out, sleep, and get the full effect of the treatment.  I would highly recommend Francesca."     ~  S.M.  Salinas, CA

"I have been on an amazing journey with Francesca for the past 8 years,  since I became so ill. I have turned to her for guidance in her expert knowledge & she has not once let me down. I am forever grateful & know that I am blessed to have such   a sensational doctor. I've seen so many people around me with my same illness go   in the route of western medicine & I've never once seen success in the direction   they chose.

Under her care I am healthier now than I have ever been, even though I live with Crohn's disease, which is pretty spectacular. Her passion for acupuncture, Qi Gong & holistic living is contagious. She lives it, she breathes it & I trust her with my health 100% & have recommended her to the dearest people in my life."                         ~   L. C.    Stanford, CA

"A bad case of bronchitis (2 doses of antibiotics and a dose of prednisone) over the course of 5 weeks led to a hot left lung to the point that sleep was only bearable  with ice packs on the lung.  I had no energy.  Three western doctors dismissed the hot lung sensation and did not address the unrelenting heat.

Francesca Ferrari, licensed acupuncturist, allows phone consultations for her established patients.   Her Traditional Chinese Medicine  diagnosis over a phone consult concluded as a possible fungal infection (toxic phlegm fire) caused by the initial heat toxin then furthered by prednisone with additional Yin deficiency heat.  Francesca immediately started me on natural herbal remedies that brought down   the heat.  A homeopathic MD confirmed her diagnosis a few days later and I am on the road to recovery.

I am very grateful for Francesca Ferrari's ability to listen, decipher and intelligently diagnose my failing health and start me on the right road to recovery. I wish there were more doctors with her intuitive and healing abilities."                                                       ~  M.A.S.  Seaside, CA

"When I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in 2006 the Mayo Clinic suggested that prior  to surgery I exercise, loose weight, acquire, and maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle in general, "the healthier you are and physically fit you become the more likely you are to have a positive outcome"  So I contacted Francesca Ferrari, L.Ac.   and with your recommendation I started juicing (the juice of 4 apples and a cup of fresh berries in the morning)  I also reduced the intake of fat, simple sugars, and sodium. I reduced the portion size for all meals, increased the use of vegetables and fish. For the typical noon meal I would have a vegetable soup with a small portion of chicken breast, the juice of 4 large carrots, 1 apple, and 2 stalks of celery.   I also walked 3 to 5 miles three times a week, walking at a brisk pace (the dog loves it!).

Francesca started me with the exercise, the needed supplements, juicing,  and a product called Ultra Clear. In six months I had lost 40 pounds and had a new   outlook on life, fit   and healthy. Early in 2009 I had a routine appointment at the  Mayo Clinic, my MD looked at a comparison chart --- all  my chemistry from years of past blood work, urine samples etc.  He stopped working and asked "what happened to you in 2006? Your chemistry has always been in the acceptable range but it is nearly perfect now."   He referred to my blood chemistry after I started Francesca's protocol:

My blood sugar went from high normal to ideal, liver and kidney function --- same result, blood pressure --- I was able to go to a lower dose (actually a  less potent medicine) The  only negative about the whole process --- I had to clean the juicer twice a day."

"Last year I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia with mild to severe acid reflux and was experiencing additional pain in my sinuses and other aches and pains as a result. I fly a lot for work and all of my symptoms were intensified, making traveling a very unpleasant experience for me. I tried everything in the book and nothing worked to cure my ailments until I underwent acupuncture. Francesca started treating me about 5 months ago and I noticed my symptoms slowly start to subside after acupuncture treatments. I am happy to report that a recent esphogram showed that I no longer had a hiatal hernia and virtually no acid reflux as a testament to the benefits of acupuncture!"

"I had a severe case of tennis elbow that was not improving at all.   I had never seen an acupuncturist before and Francesca was very intuitive and listened to my concerns.   

My very first acupuncture experience was amazing - I left so relaxed I couldn't believe it!   Each time I had a treatment I saw improvement in my elbow and now I am pain free. 

Because of the severity of my injury I knew this would not be a "quick fix" but I am SURE the treatment I received helped speed up the healing process.   I read that these types of injuries can take well over a year to heal but with Francesca's help it was a few months. 

Francesca won me over!   She has helped me with other health issues also – sleeping – hot flashes – etc….she takes care of the entire body.

For those of us who have found Francesca – I think we are very fortunate.   I would highly recommend her."
