"I've really enjoyed my experience here. I have to admit I went to Dr. Soto mostly curious about what acupuncture was like. I'm so glad I went! I was skeptical about her diet recommendations but I followed her instructions and she was right on. Dr. Soto takes her time going over ALL the paperwork and the acupuncture session is so ...

I would like to attest to this as I was a patient. I called Dr.Soto in a emergent state of pain, not life threatening obviously, but I was doing everything to prevent going to the emergency room. Now, let me preference this, I can handle high levels of pain, I had a natural childbirth. So, going forward, I ...

Acupuncture works. I have had great results, both with a frozen shoulder and help in my breathing, due to COPD. I also would say, if you like having a caring person, who really puts her all into helping you get well, do go to Blue Root Acupuncture Clinic. One month ago, I was taken off oxygen during the day. I called ...

Highly recommend. I've seen Dr. Soto for allergies, hormonal issues, and UTI's that wouldn't go away no matter how many courses of antibiotics I took. Chinese medicine used to be my last resort, when Western medicine had no answers for me. Now, it's my first resort, because I've been so pleased with the results. I'm someone who gets ...

“I only wish I had gone here sooner” is the main thought I have regarding Blue Root Acupuncture. I’ve struggled for years with back pain that would never let up. I’ve received other treatments and taken a lot of pills down through the years, which had little long-term effect. I am now pain free, and it only took a few ...

Love it. I've been going to Blue Root Acupuncture for weeks now and see Dr. Soto--she's wonderful and super helpful with explaining things. They are offering community acupuncture sessions, but I recommend private sessions, at least at first.

“Western doctors have diagnosed me with untreated chronic sinusitis and told me that the only solution for it is to have surgery. This is an aggressive procedure.
