I would give this place 10 stars! First, I’ve been to all the other acupuncture places in the area and this one by far is the best. The office setting is great and professional and the staff are with it. Most importantly I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression for some time now and have gotten little relief from traditional methods of treatment. My primary issue is that I have this chronic neck tension and it extends into my head. I have constant tightness at the base of my skull and neck and it radiates to a vice like feeling around my head. This is one of the reasons I have anxiety and depression. I went to TAW and the process was so thorough. He quickly understood exactly what was going on and began a treatment plan that helped me immediately. Initially I went every 4 days and now I’m going every 7 and progressively getting better. I can’t tell you how bad off I was and how much better I feel. I can’t say enough about how effective this place is. -Mike S.

What People Say

"I give Dr. Joe 5 stars for everything - skills, treatment plan, compassion, personality and kindness! Dr. Joe has been treating me for infertility and adrenal fatigue and since going to him I have noticed serious improvements. I had done acupuncture in the past and did not get results anywhere near as good as I have with Dr. Joe. He really truly cares about his patients and will sit down and listen to you and your symptoms to determine the best treatment possible. So, if you need help and want a practitioner who really wants to follow you on your health journey whilst have top notch acupuncture skills then Dr. Joe is the guy for you. I cannot recommend him or thank him enough for helping me." -Paula W.

Dr Joe is AWESOME! I had a horse riding accident & broke my neck years ago. I am surgically fused from C3-C7 & suffer chronic stiffness, soreness & limited range of motion. My goal is to continue ride & compete at the National level as long as humanly possible. My 1st neck treatment with Dr Joe increased my range of motion to the right by 50 degrees & significantly reduced my pain & stiffness. I can't wait to see how much improvement will be achieved after my entire treatment plan is completed. I wholeheartedly recommend that Dr Joe be given the opportunity to assist any of you with managing ongoing chronic issues...don't think you will regret it! -Nancy C.

More About Dr. Joe!


"I've had 7 acupuncture treatments and this is my first with Dr. Joe. Dr. Joe is an expert. I have never experienced "pain free" until today. I have scoliosis and have chronic pain. Dr. Joe is amazing. If you are on the fence, give it a try especially if you have constant pain." -Eileen A.

"Dr. Joe is amazing. I've seen numerous professionals... acupuncturists, doctors, orthopedic massage therapist as well as a cupping massage therapist. No one fully understood how to effectively treat my symptoms until Dr. Joe. The results I've experienced after a few sessions have transformed my life. The pain from the inflammation has subsided and the quality of my sleep has improved." -Nicole A.
