The numerous treatments I have received at Northwest AcuHealth helped me recover quickly from various sports injuries and got me back competing at a 100%. Not only did my sessions help me recover physically, but they also relieved the stress that builds up from competing and life in general.Jordan Senn, NFL Linebacker

Throughout my golf career, I have experienced injuries including back, shoulder, and elbow. I chose Gina Albanese ten years ago because of her Sports Medicine expertise and her holistic mind and body wellness knowledge. I have undergone mind and body healing with her guidance and have become a better human being and golfer in the process. I strongly recommend her to all my family, friends and associates.Joe Peccia, PGA Golf Professional
I sought acupuncture treatment for low back and hip muscles that were bound due to fibromyalgia. Within a short time my daily pain has decreased and my mobility increased so much that I could once again walk with ease. I am now able to exercise and be more physically active. My quality of life has greatly improved since beginning treatment with Gina at Northwest AcuHealth.Lisa B, Social Worker
