Testimonials

  "I've been seeing Amanda for various physical and mental ailments for over two years! She has also treated me for allergies using NAET. She is always so warm and welcoming and I can tell that she genuinely cares. I end up leaving feeling much better than when I came in and I definitely see/feel results right away. I can say my body and mind are healthier because of her and I would HIGHLY recommend making an appt if you can."

"I went to Amanda to try NAET for food sensitivities (cow milk, soy, wheat, avocado) after exhausting Western medicine options (eliminations, enzymes, stomach acid supplements, testing for celiac…) I had been told just to never eat those things again, which made me SAD. I was very skeptical going into NAET, but someone I really respect told me it helped her, and I was ready to try anything. We have been working together for about a year now, and I feel GREAT! I can eat pizza! I can eat soy sauce! I can eat guacamole! We also fixed several problems I hadn’t realized were related, like recurrent candida infections and fatigue. Amanda is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. She listens to me and thoroughly investigates possible allergies and combination reactions as we work. She is very dedicated to following NAET protocol thoroughly, which I didn’t know before is a problem with some practitioners making up their own styles or trying to approximate the system. I’m currently working on my ex to let me take our daughter in for treatment too. NAET takes some work and dedication on the part of the patient, and I find it totally worthwhile. I would strongly recommend NAET in general and Amanda in particular."

"I was fortunate to be referred to Amanda years ago after I experienced a soft tissue injury. I found I had reached a plateau of improvement with my physical therapy and wasn't 100% recovered. Amanda understood the challenge and my injury and was able to create a custom plan for my recovery. Within a short time I was back to feeling 100% and injury free. Acupuncture, when done well, is amazing and Amanda is a very talented acupuncturist. I only wish she hadn't moved away, otherwise I'm certain I would still be a client of hers."

"I had low back problems for years and saw a chiropractor off and on.  It wasn't working, so I saw Amanda 3-4 times about 6 months ago and have had no back trouble since.  If it ever happens again, I will definitely go back to see her."

"Amanda is a thoughtful, caring healer.  I went to her for a series of about 10 treatments several years ago and was grateful for her expertise, and even more so for her caring and interest.  I never felt rushed; she was excellent at getting me to talk about my health issues; was good at explaining what she was doing, what I should expect, etc.  Highly recommend!  I'm in SF now and wish she was here."

"I am pleased to have this opportunity to recommend Amanda Real because she has consistently impressed me as a caring and effective health care provider in the field of acupuncture and integral medicine.
I met Amanda during a time in my life when I had many physical and emotional ailments.  From back pain to anxiety, Amanda listened to all of my problems and was approachable, calm and reassuring.
Amanda's gentle touch and rich knowledge in the field made my experience with acupuncture extremely positive.  She always explained what and why she was administering to me whether it was needles and/or herbs.  Over time, the benefits of my treatments have helped me overcome many of my health issues.
Being treated by Amanda was always soothing and therapeutic.  Since Amanda has moved away from the bay area, I have yet to find an acupuncturist that possesses all the wonderful qualities Amanda has in her practice."

"Amanda is a highly skilled and compassionate healer. I have seen a number of acupuncturists before her and her method has most definitely had the most impact. I saw her weekly over the course of 2-3 months for chronic headaches, TMJ pain, migraines, and neck pain. Her treatments helped reduce my headaches, reduce my anxiety, and become more focused on my authentic self. She used acupuncture as well as essential oils and cupping therapy and had GREAT success in reducing the frequency and severity of my migraines and headaches. Amanda has an enormous heart and is filled to the brim with compassion and knowledge. I couldn't recommend her highly enough for whatever ails you - allergies, digestion, chronic pain, et cetera. She spends a great deal of time providing amazing care for her patients. And I always felt at ease with her treatments. In fact, I think I fell asleep every single time, waking up feeling more refreshed and relaxed than ever before."
