Client  Testimonials

I was Tina’s first patient in 2008. I went to her for help with severe back pain. I had tried other methods such as chiropractic, physical therapy and drugs to numb the pain. Some of these treatments helped but not for the long term. Finding Tina with her skills and caring attitude has helped my life improve so much over the years. I would recommend her to anyone.

After two compression fractures an acquaintance recommended a sports-therapist, but that turned out badly and it only caused more pain. After the first two visits with Tina I was able to drive 350 miles to my granddaughter’s wedding with no pain. A miracle, I thought! Her ability to zone-in and treat correctly by just our casual conversation has been a benefit to my overall wellbeing, improved my sleep and eliminated my pain.

After more than a year of rest, ice, massage, and pain following a disc herniation I finally tried acupuncture. I went from 2 sessions per week to a monthly maintenance schedule rather quickly. Tina balanced my root chakra using Esoteric acupuncture. This really helped with my low back pain and sciatica. It also helps me relax and sleep better. Calming and attentive, Tina knows exactly where to place those needles, no matter my ailment.

I benefit greatly from Tina’s esoteric acupuncture. With her nurturing treatments, I can easily recover from a cold or neck pain AND feel energetically and spiritually uplifted with her awesome chakra balancing techniques. I greatly appreciate Tina’s professionalism, warmth, wisdom and depth. I wholeheartedly recommend Tina and look forward to my next session with her!

After only four treatments I had no more numbness, tingling or pain. I lived with pain for years after my car accident(s) and it was so amazing to get off the table and have no pain for the first time in years! I am off all pain meds and can sleep through the night.

I have used Hummingbird Acupuncture for several health issues, including thyroid and hormone balancing, over the course of several years. Working with Tina Howard and taking Chinese herbs has been one of the best investments in my personal health I could have made. She is a knowledgeable and caring practitioner.
