Patient Testimonials (Rochester Community Acupuncture)


RCA is fantastic! I was suffering from severe vertigo and western medicine wasn’t helping much. Acupuncture was the most effective treatment I received during the many, many months it took to recover. Community Acupuncture is an incredible resource and I am so very grateful we have it here in Rochester. I would have never been able to afford the frequent treatments for months if it were not for RCA's social business model. Thank you so much Janeane and Angela!!!

Michael Farruggia

I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2013, and received chemotherapy and other toxic drugs as treatment for the disease. After a year, I decided to stop because the toxins made me feel lethargic, sickly all the time, and I was still in great pain. I started coming to RCA in April 2014. Since then, I have experienced a great reduction of inflammation and have no pain! Acupuncture has been a miracle for me.

Cindy Mark

This is one of the best places to heal! My experience here has been nothing but amazing! It's so unique because of it's community approach. I feel so supported being surrounded by others while I let the needles do their work.

Rachel DeRue

Acupuncture at RCA is a wonderful experience, one you can afford to repeat regularly! The environment is peaceful and the collective energy and community setting makes this a positively different experience. Whether for muscle pain, trouble sleeping or "tune up" Angela and Janeane have been given me successful treatments for years now! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Colin Coffey

I was nervous about trying acupuncture for the first time. (I am very afraid of needles regardless of the tattoos I may have) but Janeane & Angela made me feel very comfortable and worry free. I love the idea of community: not only receiving acupuncture in this setting, but making acupuncture affordable for everyone. I highly recommend this clinic to everyone!

Wendy Stumpf

After a month of consistent acupuncture treatments, both my body and my mind felt a sense of relief. I felt as if my nervous system had exhaled a giant sigh it had been holding onto for years. RCA brings holistic medicine to our community in an affordable and loving way.

Jessicah Coulston

My experience at the clinic has always been an excellent one! Everybody is very professional and courteous. The atmosphere is always very relaxing. The practitioners are very detailed in providing what the patient needs. Being able to relax and get treatment regularly is so important and what a perfect environment to do it in! I would recommend it to anyone!

Cynthia Williams

I never was a big believer in acupuncture, but Janeane helped me cure the pain in my shoulder caused by what I believe was a small tear in my rotator cuff. A few days later someone asked me if the acupuncture had helped. I moved my left shoulder around, and to my surprise it was painless for the first time in probably a year.
