"I decided to look for an acupuncturist after badly spraining my ankle in late January. After three weeks of "waiting" for it to get better, I decided I needed to be proactive! First, Leanne's office has a great location and was easily accessible. Her hours are also convenient (good options after 5:00pm).

Leanne did an excellent job asking about my physical ailments but also asked about other aspects of life to better treat me. After nearly every treatment I felt relief and better flow of energy. She was attentive, a good listener, and offered a diversity of treatments (customized each time as my healing progressed). I'd definitely say acupuncture (and soaks with Chinese herbs) were key to my recovery! I went several times, and she occasionally treated back pain and emotional issues. Again, left relaxed and with greater clarity.

I'd definitely recommend Leanne to others! She's great at what she does." Crystal C. 

"Leanne is fantastic. She's professional and kind - a combination that is often tough to come by. She treated me first for insomnia and other sleep issues, but helped me detox from chemotherapy after I was diagnosed with cancer. She's worked on other issues for me and has helped me so much. I have recommended her to several friends and colleagues." Erin S.

"Hands down, Leanne is excellent in her profession. She is driven and motivated in the speciality and knows what she is talking about. I've been seeing her for a year now and Leanne's expertise fixed what my Doctors could not, pain in my lower back. What has made her unique, from my perspective, is that she is to-the-point and direct. She doesn't try to up-sell me obscure "magical fix" products, speciality sessions, or play any mind games in hope of getting a placebo effect from acupuncture. Her work speaks for itself time and time again." W.C.

"Leanne is fantastic! This is my first experience with acupuncture, and Leanne has done a wonderful job introducing me to the treatment and addressing my health needs in a caring and nurturing way. I first came to Leanne a couple of months ago with some pretty bad acid reflux issues, as well as a hyperthyroid condition. Since then, my reflux problems have markedly improved, and I have been able to decrease my thyroid medication! I have already recommended Leanne to my friends with back problems and fertility challenges, and I gladly recommend her to all looking for a highly competent, knowledgeable and caring acupuncture professional." Sandra T.

"When receiving treatment from Leanne, she is so kind and attentive... friendly, charming. She's skilled with her acupuncture and herbal therapies.... I had great results. Her treatment space in DC is amazing. I feel better as soon as I walk through the door. Highly recommended. :-)" Matt B.

"Great experience. Leanne was very thoughtful about my treatment and was able to identify where the issues originated." Chase W.

"Leanne helped me when doctors could not. She is kind, thoughtful and thorough. She always made suggestions for things that could help my condition. Leanne is great and I looked forward to every appointment. The office is clean, comfortable and peaceful. The early appointment times were really helpful. I highly recommend Leanne!" Elizabeth A.

"I have been seeing Leanne for almost a year at this point. She is incredible--proficient and competent, and as personable as she is professional. I began seeing her for some personal issues. Despite the sensitivity of the topic, she made me feel immediately comfortable. Leanne thinks out of the box, experimenting with different approaches to secure results. I have seen tremendous improvements. Leanne combines her acupuncture treatment with a bit of Eastern wisdom. The sessions can be quite therapeutic! Leanne is fantastic with scheduling and is incredibly accommodating. The office is conveniently located in Farragut. Lastly, however most importantly, the office and rooms are clean.

Leanne is wonderful! I highly recommend her." Emma B.
