I have been a patient of Joao's for over three years
now and I'm so grateful for all health issues he has
helped me with. From breaking up breast cysts,
dissolving a 6 cm uterine fibroid, harmonizing my
menstrual cycle through my menopause, shoulder
pain ,helping to relieve stress of life, better sleep,
and over thinking. Just to name a few! He also is
very informative about diet, supplements, and
many herbal regimens that have helped me
achieve a healthier me! His calm, cool personality,
warm friendly environment, and great treatments
makes the whole experience very special. I'm so
happy to have met him!

Joao has magic needles!  When I first
went to him it was after trying another
acupuncturist for a month or so... I still
couldn't pick up anything I dropped
because my back was that bad. After 2
visits I was tying my shoes!  Sinus issues
cleared up after about 15 minutes of
treatment. Awesome person! !

Joao listens carefully and asks lots of questions to determine the treatment course.
He treats my 12 year old who is phobic of needles and myself. He was so patient and
accommodating that now my son does acupuncture for anxiety and stomach pain
1 to 2 times per week. He is so much better, I can hardly believe it, and my son asks
to go when he feels low. A native English speaker, Joao is able to understand and
treat the nuances of our complaints. He considers how to minimize the points while
alleviating the symptoms for my son. He explains why he's chosen the points he's
using, and makes sure my son feels heard and respected. He's even rushed in from
home to treat my son in his off hours when my son was really stressing about one thing
or another!For me, it's made a world of difference. I'm more relaxed, my tendinitis is
minimal, my food cravings are all but gone, and the most wonderful thing of all, my
hot flashes are almost completely gone, and I'm sure they will be completely gone
shortly!I've sent friends who have had similar wonderful experiences with Element
Wellness, and to me it's like magic!
