"I am a believer! I really look forward to every session."

I am a believer! I am not one who is all into holistic or alternative medicine but I have felt so much better since I started seeing Yuka two months ago (and actually the effectiveness of acupuncture has been shown through clinic trials). I started seeing her for stress, anxiety and associated digestive issues, and the digestive issues have been resolved and the anxiety and stress symptoms have improved. I've also had her treat random things like congestion and knee pain, all with success. I really look forward to every session - Yuka is so nice and attentive, and I find the sessions themselves to be so relaxing. I don't mind the community aspect at all. The room is serene and quiet with peaceful music playing, and I've never felt bothered or distracted by the other patients. They do also sell herbal remedies and medicines but there is never a hard sell, it's just offered as an option if you are interested and open to it. Finally, I appreciate being able to book online via the MindBody website or app.

Highly, highly recommend Olo Acupuncture!

"Hands down best place for acupuncture in the city."

Hands down best place for acupuncture in the city. The space is automatically calming and very, very clean. The communal room is quiet and Olo plays some of the same non-cheesy meditation tracks I listen to at home. All the staff are friendly and highly professional (but chill)--love practitioners Yuka and Matthew. Reasonable priced packages and worth every penny for a mini escape from NY chaos. Highly, highly recommend Olo Acupuncture!

Fibroids

"The treatments are relaxing and take me out of my hectic mindset. And most important to me, have ridded me of my cyst!"

I’m a busy professional overtaken with stress and a very hectic lifestyle. After suffering from fibroids for a couple of years and being diagnosed with a cyst that was going to require surgery, I contacted Yuka Hagiwara through a friend. Yuka is warm, kind and professional and I look forward to our visits. The treatments are relaxing and take me out of my hectic mindset. And most important to me, have ridded me of my cyst!

"I always leave her treatments feeling much more relaxed, both physically and emotionally."

I first started seeing Yuka because my calves were extremely sore. As a dancer, I had always thought that the tightness in my calves was chronic. Since Yuka’s treatments, my range of motion has greatly improved and the stiffness is virtually gone! During a treatment, Yuka creates a calm, healing environment and takes the time to treat the body as a whole/treat the entire body. I always leave her treatments feeling much more relaxed, both physically and emotionally. I highly recommend her!

Pain From an old Auto Accident

"...allowed me to enjoy a pain free golf season for the first time in years."

I have suffered on and off from neck and shoulder problems stemming from an old auto accident. The pain reached an all time high just before golf season this year. Ms. Hagiwara’s diagnosis and treatment of the problem provided immediate and sustained relief and allowed me to enjoy a pain free golf season for the first time in years.

"After my treatment I feel more at peace throughout my mind and body."

I am a Clinical Psychologist, a Yogi and a Runner. I decided to try acupuncture to help with anxiety, stress, digestive issues, muscle aches and overall to strengthen my immune system.

I greatly look forward to my treatments with Yuka, she has an extremely calming and beautiful presence. This fortunately comes with the whole tranquil experience of taking time out for myself to lay on the acupuncture table in deep meditation, to breathe and allow the energy to shift in my body, entering into the places I hold tension which is then followed by warmth and release I can literally feel.

After my treatment I feel more at peace throughout my mind and body. I find that the more intense my experience is on the table the longer the effects of acupuncture linger and I always find myself looking forward to my next treatment to explore a new area that has never opened up before.

Shoulder Injury

"I literally can’t imagine how I would cope with the significant long-haul air travel I do without the acupuncture to take away my shoulder pain – I’m so glad I discovered it!"

After Xrays and specialist doctors I was left with 3 options: physiotherapy, shot of cortisone directly into my shoulder or an operation. I took option 4 (not listed!) and decided to give acupuncture a go. After only 1 session with Yuka my shoulder felt completely better. I may get a twang every now and again but the improvement is literally 90% of what it was before I tried acupuncture. Every session is calm and relaxing and because I’m not exactly a lover of needles I choose to look the other way. I only have to go twice a year for a session as each one keeps my shoulder happy for 6 months and even then I actually look forward to seeing Yuka again! I literally can’t imagine how I would cope with the significant long-haul air travel I do without the acupuncture to take away my shoulder pain – I’m so glad I discovered it!

Headaches

"Through Yuka’s acupuncture treatments and referral of herbs, my symptoms have lessened tremendously."

I have been a sufferer of headaches with visual changes for about 13 years. After seeing many different doctors and finding no real solution, I learned to deal with my condition. Last year, a friend referred me to acupuncture, which is how I met Yuka. Through Yuka’s acupuncture treatments and referral of herbs, my symptoms have lessened tremendously. Yuka has also helped me to identify triggers (i.e.. certain foods, chemicals, stress), and as a result I am much more aware of my body and mind!

Work Stress Relief

"...she has helped me tremendously to deal with the stress of everyday life."

As a medical doctor who undergoes the pressures of long, irregular working hours in a hospital, I have found Yuka to be in precise tune with my body and she has helped me tremendously to deal with the stress of everyday life. Her natural essence of soothing ease and calmness is what brings me back to her time and time again. She has the ability to hone in on the areas in my body that need attention, by addressing my mind first; which is an unprecedented experience I have received in her line of work. I recommend her to all without any reservations and personally invite those with questions to indeed contact me at any point in time! With sincere esteem for a talented individual of the art of acupuncture, Yuka Hagiwara!

Digestive Wellness

"I started to feel immediate relief that has had a lasting impact on my stomach."

After 6 months of trying every trick in the book to cure my stomach pain, from different doctors to diets, I turned to Michael and Yuka for acupuncture. Within a few days, I started to feel immediate relief that has had a lasting impact on my stomach and overall well-being. The results have been amazing! Their treatments are tremendously accurate, and I leave each one feeling energized, rested, and healed. Michael and Yuka are 100% accountable and knowledgeable. It is such a pleasure being their patient because I know I am in good hands. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for effective and attentive acupuncture treatment.

"I felt a sense of recovery and hope with every session."

Yuka is an amazing practitioner as well as an amazing person. I came to her at a stressful time in my life and not only did the acupuncture treatments work, i had an all encompassing spiritual experience that helped my body release tension and oppressed feelings that can affect one's physical and emotional health.

Yuka is a vessel of calmness, compassion and professionalism. Her treatments made me feel so comfortable that I felt a sense of recovery and hope with every session. She has amazing knowledge of the human body and she has also helped me with any muscle injuries that I've had as a dancer. I highly recommend Yuka as an acupuncturist and consider her a friend. She is a Godsend for anyone needing treatment for physical and/or emotional trauma.

"This place is the best. Professional, calming, and a place truly for healing."

This place is the best. Professional, calming, and a place truly for healing. I went for my first acupuncture visit. Calm environment and loved Tracey. She explained what was going on in my body along with what she was doing so I was aware of each step & meaning behind it. When I left, my entire body was numb she explained bc I was actually really sick. Had I not gone, I wouldn't have known how my physical body was suffering. I swear by this place and I am a return customer now. Enjoy. You'll thank yourself for going.

Shoulder Pain

"Masha was a lifesaver!! My shoulder was in so much pain, I was ready to just tear my arm off."

Masha was a lifesaver!! My shoulder was in so much pain, I was ready to just tear my arm off. Found this place via yelp and was thankful to score a last minute appt. She listened patiently to my ailments and recommended a treatment plan. It's a bit sore after treatment but a million times better. Keep in mind, acupuncture is not a 1-day fix-all. Looking forward to my next treatment. Already booked an appt for my boyfriend and I.
