"Lina is a kind practitioner, with an abundance of knowledge. I have only been there three times, but the first week, my sore joints weren't sore anymore, after acupuncture. These last couple of weeks I'm sore, like I was before I came to see her, but it's a cumulative process that takes time. I will be using Thyro Forte (Chinese herbs they are ordering), which may alleviate sore joints. I have high hopes."
"This review is for Lina Yerkes- she is a brilliant and compassionate acupuncturist... she takes her time to figure out what's wrong and get to the source of the issue. She treated me several times with acupuncture and I highly recommend her!!"
"I absolutely adore Dr. V. She has helped both my family and I tremendously. I have been seeing her since November of 2019 and I have seen my body heal and repair. This is a slow process but the results will last longer. She has brought so much peace to my mind and body throughout the past couple of years. She is truly a healer and bright light. I am so thankful for her knowledge, gifts, and wisdom. I highly recommend Dr. V for both holistic integrative medicine and acupuncture."
"Lina is an exceptionally talented and nurturing healer. Using her intuition she will pinpoint areas of concern on your body of which you are not yet aware and heal them along with the problem areas of which you are aware. The body has its own language and Lina is an expert interpreter of that language. Do yourself a favor and open up to this nurturing, healing experience with Lina."
"I've been seeing Lina at Thriving Wellbeing weekly for a couple of months now. I feel 100x better. After the first few sessions, the minute I arrive I already start to relax. I joke that my weekly session is my favorite hour of the week, but it's not a joke! I leave each session relaxed and feeling healthier as she's been treating a number of issues together."
"Lina is by far the best Acupuncturist I've seen. She is passionate and knowledgeable in her field of herbal medicine. She has helped me tremendously with pain management and nutrition and I highly recommend her."
"Ioanna is an expert in her field and never minds going the extra mile! She has treated me multiple times for sports injuries that were very painful and immobilizing. Moreover, she has helped me reduce stress through acupuncture and herbs. That said, one of the things I like the most about working with Ioanna, is that she never makes you feel rushed or that you asked a naive question. She is a terrific resource for anybody who is looking to improve or maintain their health!"
"Dr. Ioanna is an amazingly caring practitioner. I have been treated by her for quite awhile and she always makes me feel like my treatments are tailored just for me. I love her caring and thoughtful style."
