Alida P. van Heerden, L.Ac.
Your New York Acupuncturist.
You have given me a gift today, such lovely conversation, such a healing restful peaceful time in your office. Thank you infinitely for everything.
Bekah // Berkely, CA
I want to thank you for my near cure of my neck pain and stiffness which should be complete on my next visit.
I can now turn my head completely to the right and move my head back fully with no pain. One more go at the left side of my neck should bring me back to normal movement.
Thanks too for making me feel completely at ease, and for your light touch and skill at treating pain.
Peter // Astoria, NY
After years of seeing numerous dermatologists, my skin has never looked better. Your treatments have had a dramatic improvement in my skin condition.
I just want you to know that I appreciate your professional care and I am very pleased with the results.
Katie // New York
I want to thank you for the treatment you gave to my shoulder yesterday. I have to say that you and Chinese acupuncture have made a believer out of me. I can’t believe the pain is gone and now and I am convalescing – I am so happy my shoulder is improving.
I never thought that acupuncture would be my miracle treatment. Thank you so very much for your genuine caring and gentleness!
Sal // New Rochelle
Since beginning acupuncture with you I have noticed improvements in energy, immune system strength, and specific improvements related to conditions like congestion. My congestion has cleared up and I have been sick less. When I started acupuncture I felt like I was running on empty all the time. I have experienced an overall improvement to this feeling.
Jennifer // Montclaire
I feel that my body has better endurance for physical tasks that would previously tire me or cause me pain. I also have better flexibility in muscles that previously caused me pain. I am experiencing less muscle soreness, better endurance, better mental relaxation and less stress. Thank you.
Chrisopher // Brooklyn
Prior to seeking care with Alida van Heerden, I suffered panic attacks about once a week. They were horrible and scary, and went on sometimes for hours with a very fast heart rate. After working with Alida for several weeks, the panic attacks have subsided more than 90%. My overall level of satisfaction with Alida van Heerden is very high. I feel very comfortable referring friends and family members to Alida.
Stephanie // Cowell, NY
I came to Alida van Heerden with severe migraines. Within 3 weeks, my headaches were markedly improved, and within a couple months, they were mostly gone. When I do get them, they are less severe and respond more easily to medication.
Kristen Z. // NY
Since beginning my care 8 weeks ago, I have more energy, not fatigued during the day, and am more relaxed and less anxious. In addition, I am able to approach issues with a more relaxed mind, and I have more restful sleep at night. Even my digestion is better. I am feeling stronger at the gym – more stamina.
