Their customer service is top quality. They made sure I was feeling okay, and when it didn't feel right, they corrected it to where I was feeling good. They truly care about and listen to their clients needs, and they made sure that I had a good and thorough experience. Very kind, patient, and quality service. 5/5 stars.

After going through traditional western medicine techniques for a year after a car accident, my health care provider authorized acupuncture to get my pain under control. Acupuncture has allowed me to decrease my need for medication that can damage my body with long term use. Holly and Nicole are incredibly knowledgable and professional. They listen to my needs and adjust accordingly. They have helped me through a very difficult time. The office staff is very helpful and considerate.

I love coming here for acupuncture and the overall relaxed vibe. All of the therapists are so sweet, professional and helpful. I leave here every treatment feeling calm, relaxed and happy. Thanks girls!


I have Fibromyalgia and damages to my bones, muscles, et cetera from a Terrible fall in 2019. Feeling much better, and off of most of the hard core meds.

I had my first appointment with Nicole and felt it was a great experience. While it’s only been 1 session and I haven’t seen any changes, the experience itself was warm and inviting. She asked thoughtful questions and suggested diet and supplement changes to go along with the acupuncture itself. I will report back when I start seeing improvements.

Nicole hit all my key needle points and did an excellent job with Gua Sha. Thank you. The review says I need 15 more characters to submit. So, there you go.

Great staff! and service. I Injured my neck and shoulder area, with aggravating non stop pain. Dr. Nicole Glathe's administered acupuncture and felt 50% better after my first treatment.

Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting Nicole at Holly Goguen's clinic. Nicole is a very good and proactive listener. She asked for clarification when going over my symptoms. I liked that, as it showed she was interested in obtaining as much accurate information as possible, which she then applied to my acupuncture treatment. Nicole is flexible with her treatments and strives to keep you comfortable during them. I would recommend Nicole without hesitation for acupuncture therapy.

I’ve been receiving acupuncture here for almost a year and the service has been nothing but wonderful. Both Holly and Nicole are great listeners and always make you feel like they truly want to help your well being. They listen to everything going on to get an overall picture and always adjust the treatments to what works best with you. Also a very clean and relaxing space. Would highly recommend.

As a new person to acupuncture, I found Nicole to be top notch in terms of her knowledge and listening abilities. She spends time getting to know how she can help in the treatments. And I felt comfortable knowing I am in the hands of true professionals. Their facility is very clean, quiet and a relaxing atmosphere. I am happy to let acupuncture do its work on my body and enjoy the experience at their office... I highly recommend going there.
