Wonderful, caring healer Ann Marie is genuinely warm and caring individual, who is also thoughtful, deliberate and highly professional. She listens closely, and spends whatever time is necessary to allow a patient to communicate his/her needs. I have had acupuncture from numerous professionals and she has the gentlest touch of them all. I could not recommend her more highly.

Thank you! In just a couple visits you've done more for my 89 year old mom than M.D.s have done for her in years. You listen to her, you touch her, you treat her with respect; like a person, not just some old lady. She thinks the world of you and calls you, "Dream on Wheels." Thank you so very much.

Very gifted and wise practitioner Ann Marie is a rare mixture of scientific knowledge and intuition, a true healer who understands the art and science of tuning into each unique individual's needs. She brings a wide variety of healing techniques to the table beyond and including needles. She really takes the time to understand your health history and your lifestyle to put together your customized treatment plan. I am grateful to have found her.

Exceptional Gift Ann Marie has a rare quality that few individuals are blessed with. She has the ability of making a person feel calm no matter how stressful life gets. Throughout the treatments, we tackled the health ailments, but also discussed lifestyle changes that I was able to make in order to feel better. Every conversation is a dialogue and she knows how to approach every person as an individual, rather than a standard case.

Ann Marie is wonderful I have been coming to this office for more than 6 months now. Ann Marie's positive attitude always makes my day. The treatment would not be as good without her passion to this field. She makes acupuncture not just physically, but emotionally healing.

Highly recommended! Ann Marie is warm, friendly, and has a wonderful presence. She is professional & knowledgeable, and able to describe the concepts in ways I can relate to. Acupuncture is new for me so I appreciate her taking time to explain what she is doing and why. When it comes to the needles....no problem! Her insertion technique is perfect. Each treatment I've had so far is relaxing and I leave her office feeling centered and calm.

Incredible I recently saw Ann Marie while I was in town on vacation. Her thorough, intuitive, and introspective style was so comforting. She really knows her field so well. Don't hesitate to see her no matter what. She is one of the best practitioners I've ever experienced. Her gentle and calm manner for acupuncture was truly exceptional. She is terrific. You are lucky to have her in your community! Many thanks Ann Marie!

Excellent! I am a 66 year old active woman with a number of age-related inconvenience, including muscle aches, joint pain, and bladder control problems. Ann Marie is very good in the interview portion of my appointment. She gets to and treats the root cause of my ailments. I am feeling so much better! She is so kind and compassionate too. I give her an A+.

Caring and Knowledgeable I have been receiving acupuncture from Ann Marie for over 2 years. My initial concern was seasonal allergies that improved greatly with treatment. With regular treatments, I am nearly symptom free. Ann Marie is very skilled at asking questions and tailoring sessions to address my specific needs. She is very concerned with the total wellness of her patients. Based on her suggestions, I have made several changes to my eating and sleeping habits.

Highly Recommeded I was very pleased with my initial appointment and introduction to acupuncture. The office and acupuncture room were very cozy, calming, and serene. Ann Marie treated me and spent time getting to know me, and learning about the problem for which I was seeking treatment. She was knowledgeable and articulate. Once she determined and communicated what treatment would be most beneficial, her placement of needles was painless. I left feeling very relaxed.

Stress & Rejuvenation

J.M.
Amazing Treatments Ann Marie's treatments are amazing! After my weekly appointment, I feel revitalized and ready to start my week. Her knowledgeable application of acupuncture and herbs for stress relief, healthy nutrition, and overall emotional support for an overly scheduled woman has brought a profound change to my life. I highly recommend Ann Marie and Altos Medical Acupuncture.

Journey to Wellness I have been going to Ann Marie since November 2013. It has been a healing experience. While I had no serious complaint, my goal was to work on total wellness. Ann Marie is very client-centered and encouraged me to look at all areas of my life to achieve more balance. I have changed my eating habits, sleeping pattern, and now exercise regularly. My overall constitution is much improved! I am grateful for Ann Marie's nurturance and skill with acupuncture. 
G.N.
Supportive and Receptive Ann Marie is such a supportive, warm, caring practitioner. She has a gentle touch and her acupuncture has left me feeling restored and relaxed. She is very nurturing and really cares about improving my overall health.

Healing presence It was by chance I found acupuncture and Ann Marie. I was searching for overall wellness and balance in my life. Ann Marie has been a catalyst in my journey. I found the treatments very effective, relaxing, and healing. Ann Marie has been a real gift and I can only encourage others to consider giving themselves the gift of this experience.

Pain

Bindi g
Ann Marie is the best! I have been seeing Anne Marie for menses-related problems for 1 1/2yrs; she has been able to control that problem beautifully. Most recently I came to Ann Marie with an acute sciatica inflammation. I had been in unrelenting pain for 2 days and Ann Marie was able to give me a treatment and reduce the pain by 95% during that visit. The pain has not returned!

Wonderful Experience I was referred to Ann Marie Deas by m Physical Therapist. I had been suffering sharp pains in my lower back after I had walked for 5 or 10 minutes. I would have to stop and sit down to let the pain to dissipate. Then I would walk again and the pain would come back in a short time. At my first session with Ann Marie we talked about my symptoms and suggested a combination of deep massage at the area of the recurring pain. In addition to the massage, she also added acupuncture to the mix. I think we started with two sessions a week about 3 months ago. As we have proceeded, the pain has been reduced dramatically. We kept lengthening time between sessions to the point that I see her once a month. Ann Marie is a very knowledgeable, professional and caring person. I highly recommend her to any person who is looking for an alternative approach to heath that doesn't rely the traditional medical treatment as we know it.

Migraine Ann Marie spent considerable care getting my migraine to go away. I was miserable and spent from the pain. She reduced the pain by the end of the treatment and the effects continued with headache gone an hour later. Thank you, Ann Marie!!
Chris B.
No more pain! My first treatment was amazing! I was able to hike in the snow for 5 days without any pain, tendonitis, or inflammation. I haven't felt that relaxed in years. I've been telling everyone how amazing you are!
M.H.
Amazing results I was suffering from severe cardiac arrhythmia to the point where it was keeping me awake at night. I did go to Kaiser for a diagnostic work-up, and was told it was just PACs and nothing to worry about. They offered beta-blockers, which I refused. Ann Marie treated me according to my symptoms, and one hour later, the arrhythmia which had been going on for a full month stopped, and hasn't returned so far. I am very grateful! Kaiser is amazed but no as surprised as one would think. :)

So much help I recently had reconstructive breast surgery. There is a great deal of pain involved with this procedure. I was given pain meds by the surgeon which didn't do much. The answer to my pain was the treatment given to me by Ann Marie. I saw her twice in the first week post-op, and it was the best relief I had. She knows what she is doing, and she is so lovely to work with. I can't say enough about her.
G.K.
Gives me hope I went to Altos Medical Acupuncture with a horrific fibromyalgia flare-up. Ann Marie was very thorough, very kind, and best of all, I left with a feeling of empowerment and HOPE! It's one thing to take pills to treat the pain after the fact, but it is so much better to do something proactive like this. I look forward to continuing my treatments with her. She is so great and explained everything before she did it. Thanks!
E.S.
Healer What a wonderful healer! I see Ann Marie for arm issues akin to carpal tunnel. As a professional I have a lot of computer work and general stress that she is very effective at helping me relieve.
L.G.
Great! I wish every doctor would provide the same level of personal care and commitment to helping the patient as Ann Marie does at Altos Medical Acupuncture. I suffer from chronic pain and have seen too many doctors to count along with trying several other acupuncturists in the area. This is the first time that I leave feeling like the pain is so much better! Instead of taking pain killers for temporary relief, I feel like I am actually doing something to heal. I highly recommend!
Gail L.
Superb! I see Ann Marie regularly for acupuncture to help treat chronic fatigue syndrome. She is an intelligent and skillful acupuncturist whose treatments, gently administered in a serene uplifting environment, reduce symptoms, strengthen, and energize. She is exceptionally supportive and caring. I highly recommend her.
Beverly E.
Recommended Ann Marie is personable and informative. I recommend her gentle and effective style for the work she has done for my lower back pain. 
J.S.
Up for the challenge Ann Marie is caring and knowledgeable. She perseveres in dealing with my chronic pain, lessening the severity and encouraging me along the way. Acupuncture saved me when Western Medicine was at a loss. Thank you Ann Marie for continuing to give the fine care I enjoyed from your predecessor. You filled very big shoes with grace and talent.

Excellent practitioner!! I started seeing Ann Marie due to experiencing incessant pain from pericarditis. Her acupuncture methods helped get my body out of a pain loop and reduced my stress. After seeing Ann Marie for a complicated issue I can say, that 6 months later my health has significantly improved. Ann Marie is a very kind, compassionate and understanding person and is very good at what she does! She also makes the experience educational which is something I enjoyed. I always felt relaxed, comfortable and re-energized after our sessions. I highly recommend her, and she will always be my go-to for acupuncture.
