I met Lanelle at a business owner’s breakfast. I had heard of acupuncture but never paid much attention. As Lanelle got up to share about her business she said that acupuncture could help with allergies and that immediately got my attention. I’ve suffered with allergies since I was a child (I was 47 when I met Lanelle) and for the last 8 years had been going to standard doctors for severe abdominal pain and frequent allergy issues. I was willing to try anything! At the initial consultation Lanelle was very professional and asked so many questions that I felt like I was being vetted by the secret service (lol). Not that she was being nosey, she genuinely cares and wants to help her clients. As she was beginning the acupuncture treatment I was asking questions. She began to explain chi and meridians and all I could hear was Charlie Brown’s mom. After the first session I was a bit tired but it was unremarkable. When I came back the second time Lanelle told me she believed most of my symptoms may be food allergy related. For 8 years I had been going to regular doctors for my symptoms and they just told me to take a pill and good luck. Lanelle was the first person to actually give me info that I could do something with. At her behest, thinking it could be a gluten or dairy allergy, I gave up all wheat products and dairy. It’s not as hard as you might think if you’ve been looking for answers for years. Up to this point I had been taking Omeprazole (for stomach acid) and allergy pills almost daily for years. Since the second treatment, in the past 3 months I have only needed to take Omeprazole 3 times and only need an allergy pill on days when I have to crawl in an attic. I still don’t understand chi or meridians or flow. What I do know is that I feel better than I have in years! As an alternative medicine provider I would highly recommend Lanelle. She genuinely cares and will explore every avenue to help you resolve your issues.
Lanelle has been treating me with Five Element Acupuncture for about two years now. I am very pleased with her skill and talent. Before she opened her practice in San Jose, I would drive to San Francisco for quality treatment. Fortunately, Lanelle studied under my practitioner in the City. Now I can obtain the level of quality that used to require me to drive two hours round trip. Five Element Acupuncture is a powerful and sophisticated healing technique that works best when the practitioner is deeply skilled and possesses an innate talent. Lanelle has brought a full range of treatment options to bear on the flow of my Qi. I recommend her highly.

About me

After years working as a CPA in corporate finance at high-tech companies Lanelle realized that although she had attained success in her career, she was unsatisfied and felt like something was missing. At the time she didn't know that she was experiencing a lack of health at a spirit level.

She was also experiencing a lack of health at the physical level, suffering for 10 years from chronic back and neck pain caused by an auto accident and sports injury. Despite trying many different types of treatments, any relief she felt was temporary. She found herself in a downward spiral of depression and hopelessness.

A friend recommended Five Element Acupuncture and Lanelle found the results amazing. Her pain was 90% relieved after a few treatments and the depression went away! She realized she hadn't felt this good in years. She knew sharing this powerful healing method with others would be her life work moving forward.

A licensed Classical Five Element Acupuncturist, Lanelle feels incredibly lucky to be able to help her clients achieve balanced health in their bodies, minds and spirits, and enjoy their lives to the fullest.

Using Chinese Medicine and Nutrition response testing, Lanelle works with her clients to understand their needs holistically and provides individualized care, through which they have experienced relief from many ailments, including various types of acute and chronic pain, digestive disorders, women’s health problems, mental health issues, fatigue, insomnia, stress, and infertility.​

Lanelle is extremely service oriented and takes great care to ensure everything she does leads to providing the best service available to her clients. She cares deeply for each client and likes getting to know everyone personally, as a whole and beautiful being.
