Infertility, Breech Baby, Neck Pain
"I had some awful upper back and neck pain. I could not move my head for weeks.
It finally got unbearable. I was skeptical, but desperate. I saw Rita. I swear,
I was 95% healed after the first session. It was amazing. I went back two weeks
later to take care of the last bit of pain and we started talking about my health
in general. She said she could help me with my infertility problems. My husband and
I had been trying to get pregnant with out luck for some time. I was just about
to make an appointment with my doctor to explore what the problem may be. I figured
if she could completely heal my back and neck why not try her on this too. What could
it hurt? Four months later I was pregnant! No lie. I had been trying to get pregnant
for years. Again, simply amazing! Then! A few weeks ago, at 37 weeks pregnant, my baby
turned breech. I saw Rita for moxibustion. Baby turned the next day! My experiences
being treated by Rita have been nothing short of magical. She is a wonderful, caring,
supportive, and very skillful acupuncturist and herbalist. Go to her!" - Tracy B
ADHD - Allergies teenager
"Rita is working miracles with our 14 year-old son! At age 7, he was diagnosed with ADHD and
prescribed stimulant medicine. He had been taking the medicine, with increasing dosage levels,
for 7 years. The medicine started causing side effects so we stopped giving it to him. His first
appointment with Rita was 3 days after being off the medicine. Rita, who is so calm and kind and
sweet, became a mighty warrior in the plight to heal our son's ADHD and allergies. The result after
only two months: anxiety and agitation from the medicine dissipated almost immediately, and the allergies
were significantly improved. Our son is happier and more confident. He does homework better and his
test anxiety has decreased. He has more energy and is more outgoing. School is easier and focus is
improving. He has never been healthier.
Since Rita was able to heal our son so amazingly, we decided to ask her to treat our daughter who was
recovering from surgery after a season-ending ankle injury. Six months after surgery, our daughter
was cleared to run by her surgeon and physical therapist, but could not do so without significant
pain. She was frustrated beyond belief and wanted to try acupuncture. After only a few sessions with
Rita, our daughter was able to run almost pain-free. The look on our her face was priceless after
her first pain-free run!
Rita continues to treat both of our children. Our son's ADHD and allergies continue to improve and
my daughter is running! Rita works tirelessly to treat my children naturally using many avenues. In
addition to acupuncture, she provides nutritional advice, essential oil blends, topical healing herbs,
and other therapies to help with focus. Rita has my entire family reading labels and eating healthy.
Our family life has improved ten-fold thanks to Rita and her amazing healing abilities.

Chronic Excessive Menstrual Bleeding
"Rita is amazing. I feel so blessed to have found her. Over the past year or so I was having lots of
issues with my menstrual cycle. It was getting so bad that I didn't want to leave the house. I was
scheduled for a hysterectomy and then canceled it a few days before because I just didn't believe that
was the only way to solve my issues.
After seeing a number of Ob/Gyn doctors and getting almost the same answers, I was quite frustrated.
The doctors kept telling me it was my hormones, and I should either do birth control or the surgery.
I didn't like those options because it wasn't solving the issue if it was truly my hormones.
Someone referred me to Rita. I'm so happy I made an appointment with her. Within 2 months, between
the acupuncture sessions and Chinese herbs, Rita had my cycle coming at a normal interval and the
flow has significantly improved. I can't wait to see what another month or two will bring.
For the past 3 years, my husband has had a reoccurring knot in his shoulder blade. After talking
with Rita about his issue, I convinced him to make an appointment. After the first treatment he noticed
an improvement. I know Rita is going to fix us both up, and that whatever issue we face in the future
she will be able to solve. "
Chronic Knee Pain
"I just wanted to give a quick update on my knee. Its feeling so much better since the last visit,
I have full range of motion with little pain, thank you and have a great day!" - JD
"There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Rita is. She helped me navigate a compound fracture
of my arm, severe allergies, and chronic headaches. She worked a miracle in helping me to become
drug free in dealing with allergies that I have suffered with since childhood. She is caring and
compassionate and genuinely wants the best for her patients. I wish that I could have checked off
a few more stars. Five is definitely not enough." - MT
"I have been seeing Rita since September 2014 and she has been treating me for a variety of health
issues during this time. The most incredible was her support during my first pregnancy. I had the most
amazing pregnancy - no morning sickness, no swelling, no other common issues, and while I did exercise
daily and ate healthfully, I believe, acupuncture made a big difference to the way I felt. Healthy
diet is something Rita emphasizes, as well. She takes a holistic approach to her treatment and discusses
your nutrition and lifestyle, tweaks to which may have a profound effect on one's health.
Moreover, I love Rita as a person. She is so caring, understanding, and very kind!
She is a great listener, as well." - AK
Severe Menstrual Pain
"I am on the 5th day of my period and had cramps ONLY on my first day, so I took 3 pills of Aleve during
the day. Usually I have horrible cramps for the first 3-4 days and had to take sometimes even subscribed
pain killers. But all these last days NO PILLS AT ALL!
I even went to work out on the second and the third days of my period. Just had minor cramps in the
evening yesterday and day before yesterday, but very little and short.
But overall it is THE FIRST TIME FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS I DID NOT TAKE ANY MEDICATION, EXCEPT FOR THE FIRST DAY!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!" - KC
Kidney Disease - High Cholesterol - Arthritis
"Rita has helped me with knee pain from osteoarthritis, In the past, I had to get an injection of
artificial joint fluid every 6 months for my left knee,otherwise it felt like someone was taking a
broom stick handle and whacking it across the front of my knee. With acupuncture, I was able to go
13 months without an injection, and even then the knee pain was not as severe.
￼￼￼I also needed help to lower my triglycerides, as plain dietary changes through the years didn't help.
I received acupuncture, but Rita also suggested adding certain supplements to my diet.
Over a year's period, on most mornings I followed her suggestions. With that combination, my triglycerides
went down by 87 mg/dL and is now in the normal range. My VLDL (very low density) values also decreased
by 18mg/dL and is now in the normal range.
My kidney function eGFR (glomerular filtration rate) has also increased and is now in the normal range. That hasn't happened in years.
After seeing Rita weekly about 2 months, I now go once or twice a month for tune ups.
I would certainly try Rita if you have health issues that aren't being helped by traditional western medicine
or if you want a more holistic approach. She is very easy to talk to and listens to you. She is a very kind and
caring person. She is very professional. Her office is very clean and has a calming zen feel." - RS
Chronic Migraines-Sciatic Pain
"I am stubborn and a skeptic and I have waited to exhaust several western methods on numerous
occasions before visiting Rita. I couldn't run for six months and she fixed my back in two sessions.
She also completely alleviated my migraines. She's amazing at what she does and has a great passion
for it as well." - RJ
Chronic Cough with Cold
"Rita, You are an awesome wonder! I am doing fantastic! I have been a walking marketing endorsement
for your business; I have been telling everyone about you. I appreciate it and now I am able to enjoy
my vacation with my family next week." - AS
Anxiety - ADHD
"Thank you for the treatment yesterday for my daughter. Her flights went very well today and I can tell
she is feeling comfortable and good. She left your office very content. She then woke early this morning
very focused, calm, and unafraid. She finished packing and didn’t miss a thing. She never mentioned or
looked like she had any anxiety about the flights or airport stays. I had to let you know because I
think your treatment helped a lot." - KR
Hip Pain-Impaired Movement (patient visiting from Europe)
"Pain is gone, movements restored to at least 80% ... I am very happy and will continue final
treatment in Berlin.
Again thank you very much. It helped a lot. " - HD
Breast Cancer patient
"Rita is very professional, knowledgeable, caring, understanding, great listener. I found her during
my search for alternative treatment program, when I was diagnosed with Breast cancer in January.
The program she provided has made a huge impact on my overall health and well being. I was
apprehensive about Acupuncture prior to seeing Rita, now I look forward to my appointments.
She puts me at ease and is very gentle. The office is very clean and quite. I've been on the
program for about 5 months. I'm confident I'm healthier due to her guidance, nutritional plan and
Acupuncture sessions. I have tons of energy and naturally lost weight (BONUS!) My friends and
family are amazed at the changes and ask "what are you doing differently". She genuinely cares and
that's what I was looking for during my search. I highly recommended Rita for anyone looking for
the right acupuncturist."
"Great news. I did not get any anxiety on the plane or anywhere else. No pills taken !!!!!!
Thank you so much,
I think your treatment is working."
Update 6 months later: "I commute to San Francisco by Bart again. Guess what - no problem at all!!!!
No anxiety !!!!! I am soooo happy !!!!!
Thank you very much again" - GS
"Rita is a healer.
I had a physical in May. My thyroid was outside the normal at 5.45. I am a 64 year old male, and have always been very active. I noticed I was looking to take a nap in the afternoon, and even if I did, I would wake up not rested. OK I thought, must be the old man aging process.
It was nothing major, and not harmful.
After the diagnosis I was given the prescription of Synthroid. I know the body is capable of healing and wanted a different answer. So, I contacted Rita who came highly recommended from a physical therapist I have worked with for about nine years.
I did a 3 month treatment, and last week I went in for a follow up blood test. My TSH was back in normal range at 3.9. More than that, since the second day of the first treatment, I have had almost no urge to sleep in the afternoon. I also noticed that my forearm skin is no longer dry and flaky. That happened at week three.
Reading about acupuncture, I always see that it works, but, rarely do I see hard evidence that it does. So, I thought I would provide the numbers.
I will continue with Rita because I believe acupuncture, which has been around for 5000 years, treats the body as a whole, and not just one particular symptom.
Rita makes her clients feel welcome, she takes the time to know you, and is flexible with her treatment as the patient needs change.
Is it a permanent fix. I do not know. But, I think it is like working out. I believe it takes consistency over a period of time.
Rita is the right person with a great bedside manner. " - JS
Acne-Menstrual Irregularity-Chronic Fatigue
"I had been dealing with horrible breakouts around my jawline and irregular menstrual cycles for
quite a few months. I tried a dermatologist and they started mentioning accutane and some other
harsh medications. I wanted to deal with my issue naturally and not just mask the symptoms -
luckily I found Rita through yelp! Within a few months of acupuncture treatments and Chinese
herbal teas Rita created for me my skin is spotless and I barely wear any makeup anymore.
She has also helped me improve my energy levels. Previously I was falling asleep in meetings and
while driving home from work, now that is no longer an issue! Rita was also able to help me with
some neck pain I came in with one week. I know whatever ails me Rita will be able to help in a
natural, non-invasive, healthy way. Can't imagine life without her services; definitely give
her a try!"
"I have been seeing Rita for three and a half years, originally for long-term neck pain and insomnia,
both of which I experience now only rarely. Rita then helped me cope with an advanced cancer diagnosis,
major abdominal surgery, and 5 months of chemotherapy during which I worked full time, to the amazement
of my doctors. She has since helped me get through a series of joint and muscle issues, and a variety
of life issues. Rita has advised me on diet and health issues with great knowledge, experience and
integrity. Shortly after I started seeing her, I remembered the saying about when the student is
ready the teacher will come, and think that applies here absolutely."
"Rita was recommended by a friend and I am eternally grateful for the recommendation.
Rita takes the time to truly listen to what is occurring and I believe she is an artist
and incredibly gifted. I started going to Rita for a specific issue but found that she
has encouraged me and supported me to live a more healthy and balanced life in general.
She spent time going over suggested health guidelines and ways to incorporate changes that
could improve my overall health. Rita has a caring, professional and authentic demeanor.
I have recommended her to numerous friends and family and will continue to do so."
Mother-Extreme Fatigue, Back Pain. Daughter-Bedwetting at Age 9
"I started seeing Rita about 6 months ago. I Have 3 daughters, after having my third I had no energy
and just wanted to sleep all the time, Rita fixed that in one session and I have gone back for many
other things, lower back pain and sore throats, she has helped with it all! I also take my daughters
to her and she has helped them tremendously- She has helped them understand the importance of healthy
food choices and they trust her and talk with her about whatever is on their mind. She really is
amazing! I highly recommend her!!! I feel happy healthy and balanced!"
Neck Pain - Allergies
"I was always skeptical of acupuncture; however, due to chronic neck pain from a work injury as a
firefighter, I decided to give it a try. After a couple visits to Rita, my neck pain diminished to
the most manageable level it's been in years. I've also suffered from severe allergies (seasonal hay
fever) since I was a child to the point of daily medicine and allergy shots several times a year.
One day I when seeing Rita my allergies were blowing up: eyes puffy and watering, throat scratchy,
head plugged up and I was exhausted. Rita gave me acupuncture to address my allergies, and an hour
later I left feeling much better.In addition to the immediate results of the acupuncture, working
with Rita has helped me modify a lot of the rest of my lifestyle, especially my diet. I've felt
better than I have in years!Rita is a truly sweet and caring person. It is always a pleasure to see
her, and I highly recommend her and her acupuncture service."
"I had been stuffed up, had respiratory issues and worst of all I was unable to smell or taste for
10 months. I saw 2 different ENTs who put me on multiple antibiotics that didn't work and then
suggested surgery before I finally decided to try something different and made an appointment with
Rita. On the first appointment she was welcoming and gracious and truly listened to all my issues.
I felt relaxed and at ease with her immediately. I finally found someone who really listened to ALL
the problems going on and she had many suggestions of ways to improve my overall health. Within the
first few weeks of treatment I was able to breathe clearly and discontinued my asthma medication.
A few weeks later and my smell and taste have started coming back! I am so grateful and thankful to
have found Rita!"
"I started acupuncture when I was having trouble becoming pregnant. After just two months
of seeing Rita I became pregnant! The office is very relaxing and I look forward to my sessions.
Rita is extremely knowledgeable and has also helped me get on track with a proper diet. I highly
recommend Rita and am very happy to have found her. In addition to being an expert in her field,
she is also just a great person."
Allergies - Mono - Menstrual Pain
"My family and I have been going to Rita for a few years. We are so fortunate to have such an
exceptional healer in our area. From seasonal allergies to food allergies, colds, injuries,
hair loss, female issues, Rita treats it all. She has transformed my life. I suffered for years
with seasonal and food allergies without any help from medical doctors. I went to Rita as a last
resort having never been treated by anyone who practices eastern medicine. I am so grateful i did.
I highly recommend her."
Pulmonary Aspergillosis - Severe Asthma
"I went to see Rita almost a year ago for severe asthma. I have been on medications while Rita has
tried to reduce their side effects while strengthening my health. I have been feeling much better
and doctors have agreed to stop medications gradually. I am much more stronger in all aspects of
my life after seeing Rita. She has changed my eating habits and I can feel the difference. I will
recommend her with no doubts.
I also come from a family of doctors but fortunately they also believe better to avoid medications.
My dad use to suggest drinking chamomile when I had a stomach pain :-) but Rita has the proper background
and knowledge to guide you to the use of natural medicine.
Plus she is a wonderful person."
"Just wanted to let you know my ultrasound showed the baby head down now. Hopefully he stays that way.
Thanks for your help."
"Rita is pretty awesome :).
I've been seeing her since about midway through my pregnancy for pregnancy-related ailments like
low-back pain, swelling, carpal tunnel, etc. Along the way she has also helped me with congestion,
emotional stress, a random eye twitch, and even my diet! I have been feeling WAY better than expected
these last few months, and I attribute a lot of that to my once-a-week acupuncture!
Rita is both extremely knowledgeable and extremely sweet and easy to talk to. I feel confident that
she has a way to help with almost any symptom/issue that comes up for me ... if I get a new weird
symptom, I just think to myself, "I'll ask Rita about it." And usually she has a way to provide
I have seen other acupuncturists in the past as well, but Rita is my favorite. Her treatment room is
cozy and comfortable (I often find myself falling asleep during a treatment), and her knowledge
about overall health (particularly diet) really comes in handy. Highly recommended."

I get a diagnosis from the MD and go to her for the treatment . It really works!

Back Pain, Stress patient
"Rita is top notch in her field. I had very serious back issues for over 12 years,
along with a stressful career. Rita has taken away a majority of my back pain with
the acupuncture. I talk about her to everyone because I can't believe how wonderful
I feel after seeing her. I truly never thought I would have a stress free back.
In additional to being a great Acupuncturist, she is an amazing, kind woman.
She would give you the shirt off her back to make you feel bettter. That is rare to
find in this world." - MH
Joint Pain, Irregular Menstruation patient
"I began with Rita, admittedly as a bit of an unbeliever, for tennis elbow. I no longer have any pain or issues -
I practice yoga and do strength training regularly. Since that experience, Rita has also treated me
to help regulate my cholesterol, which is genetic in my family, and I no longer take any medication.
She has helped straighten out my menstrual cycle and reduce intense cramps. She has also assisted me
with nutrition, I lost 10 pounds. I continue to see Rita on a regular basis as part of my health care
regime. She keeps me healthy and pain free - I am 52 and very active so that is quite an accomplishment.
Everyone I have referred to Rita has had success." -PH

my stomach, liver, gallbladder, and hormone levels, along with things like headaches
and dizziness. I feel so much better and I have confidence in her ability to get me
back to 100%. She offers what my "traditional" doctor CAN NOT and I feel like she's
on my side. I've recommended her to my friends and would recommend her to anyone. - SH

calm demeanor. Even if you've never tried acupuncture before, I highly recommend seeing Rita."

issues. I had tendinitis in my right hand that was gone after a couple of sessions.
She has so much experience and nutritional knowledge and is willing to share and guide
me to get healthier. She listens and takes her time. I have almost everyone in my family

Rita is for you! I'm so glad I found someone who truly cares about getting her clients healthy!!" - SG
Chronic Sinus Infection-Headache patient
"Since childhood I have suffered with horrible seasonal allergies that often required medications
with unwanted side effects. Acupuncture (and Rita!) has created a new life for me that no longer

were a burden that I would just have to deal with for the rest of my life but acupuncture and herb
treatments have proven otherwise and I am SO grateful. - MT

Severe Migraines-Eczema/Weight Loss patient
"Rita and her services have made an amazing change in my life. For 7 years I have suffered with
severe migraines that affected my life in many ways. Within those years I have seen countless doctors
ranging from primary care physicians to neurologists whom all have given me several tests, CT scans
and MRIs of the brain. I have been on almost every migraine treatment that usually involved high
dosages of western medicine that often caused the jitters, nausea, and very little sleep. When I
started seeing Rita she treated my condition with acupuncture, herbs, and nutritional advice. I have
come a long way with her guidance by changing my eating habits, exercising and my commitment to making
a change to my overall health. Now the intensity and the frequency of the migraines have drastically
decreased making me happier than ever. Addition to the positive changes in my life I have lost weight,
my skin is clearer, and most of all I have found someone (Rita) who really cares about my wellbeing.
Rita regularly checks in with me to see how I am doing and to give me further suggestions that could
help. Out of all the years I have had migraines, I have never experience the care and the services that
Rita provides and the willingness to figure out solutions to any problems I may have. With that said I
thank Rita for all she has done to help me and I am very lucky to have her in my life. - IO
Severe Neck Pain
"Rita Panahi was attentive to my needs and very thorough with my medical history. This was my very first
acupuncture session and had no idea what to expect. She saw me on an emergency basis, while I was
visiting from North Carolina! Very nice office atmosphere and very relaxing....actually dozed off while
being treated. I truly recommend her with highest regards! My neck is way better than it was.
Percentage wise, I'd say 80% better after the one treatment. The pain is not "taking my breath away" now!" - CC
Chronic Sciatic Pain patient
"My back and leg are doing fine. I would say I'm walking a lot and with minimal to no sciatic pain!
All in all I'm doing great. I would say I'm at 90%!! Thanks sooooo much for helping me with this, I
really feel much better and I thank you for it!" - MM
Back Pain-Weight Loss patient
"Rita is AMAZING! I initially saw Rita as I was having back issues - she fixed me right away.
I have been seeing Rita for about 4 months. She has helped with my allergies and sinus issues
along with my other aches and pains that have come with age lolShe is also helping me with weight
management. She listens to what you have to say and is very patient. I am trying to get my oldest
daughter to see Rita - she has had 2 back surgeries.. I am also interested in what Rita has to say
about my son who is on the Autism spectrum. Rita is genuine, caring and compassionate. I look
forward to seeing her as I feel so much better after I have seen her.I can't say enough nice things
about her.. she is one of a kind and truly incredible!" - MS
Low Back Pain
Please browse through my site to learn more about the services and
how I can support you in transforming your health and your life.
"First of all, I have never been treated by an acupuncturist prior to seeing Rita. It's not that
I'm extremely skeptic, but it's more or less because I dislike needles with a passion (I come from
a family of nurses and had the wonderful pleasure of being a practice patient for my older sister
and one of her friends when they were in nursing school -- I rest my case). I made my initial
appointment with Rita to treat lower back pain due to a car accident after being rear ended on my
commute home from work. I had lower back surgery years ago and since then, I face certain tolerable
restrictions (I cannot sit/stand for extended periods of time, including bending down a certain
number of degrees, etc.). However, the car accident aggravated my lower back pain to a point that
my tolerable restrictions became my enemy.
I've been a patient of Rita's for a little over two months now, and I can honestly say that she
genuinely cares about each one of her patients' well being. She treats her patients' initial issues,
and continues further to tackle other items based on the patients' responses provided in the Intake
form. I will not go into details my existing/additional issues; however, although I was aware of
them before, it became more prominent after Rita pointed out its connections to my overall health
(one mind, one body, right?). I am also drinking a concoction of Chinese Herbal teas (she determines
which herb mixtures are good for her patients' ailments) to assist in my journey to better health.
Although she teases me that I will eventually "love" my tea, I know that I will not because I have
a sweet tooth, and this tea doesn't even taste like burnt brownies (warning: the tea tastes like dirt).
Nonetheless, I know I like what my tea is doing to my body, and I hope it continues in providing
me with positive results.
Rita is knowledgeable, gentle, and a true professional. I heard from a colleague at work that the
acupuncturist she goes to near her home hurts her. Yes, everyone have different pain tolerance
levels, but the one she goes to sounds like she just jams the needles in her skin until it reaches
the stopping point (Rita gently inserts the needles and sometimes taps it in place). Overall, I
highly recommend Rita for acupuncture and Chinese Herbal tea services :)
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
I look forward to being of service to you and helping you reach your optimum goal in living a healthy life.
