See what my Charleston patients have to say about their experience.
My acupuncture experience with Julie Allison was beyond my expectation. Her space is clean, quiet, relaxing and professional. Julie did a wonderful job explaining the treatment to me before and during, so nothing came as a surprise. I highly recommend Julie Allison’s acupuncture services!
Julie is just amazing! If you have never tried acupuncture I highly recommend her expertise. It is an amazing experience with tangible results. I had a tooth issue after a cap and all of the symptoms are completely gone after one session. This is after trying antibiotics twice. I have also had numerous treatments with her for relaxation and overall balancing. Usually I fall into a deep sleep during the session and leave feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated. The needles are not painful so don’t be scared! I find acupuncture so intriguing because you can’t specifically understand why it works for so many issues but it just does. Whole heartedly recommend Julie!
I was a bit skeptical about acupuncture. It all sounded a bit ‘magical’ and not a real option for medical treatment. But I was feeling very bad and not having much success with traditional medicine, so it was definitely worth a try! You seriously amazed me! You are so professional, while also being caring and warm. You are very knowledgeable, and you make that information make sense. You do a great job of connecting the dots and explaining how and why acupuncture is working. I chose you because I was referred by Dr. Lovegrove! My favorite part of the experience was working with you and the peaceful and centered feeling during the treatment. It worked wonders for my allergies, and significantly reduced my headaches.
