The past year was a difficult one for me health-wise: flu, ruptured achilles, and stress. For each of these ailments I saw Tim. Regardless of the reason for my visit, Tim was able to treat me successfully and in each case my recovery was complete. In addition to the acupuncture and herbal treatments, Tim outlined a nutritious and balanced diet that would be easy for me to maintain. I have been on this healthful diet for almost 3 months now and feel better than ever. Overall, I have lost 10 lbs. and am nearing the best shape of my life.
I have only done acupuncture a few times prior to going to Tim. I am always energized and constantly moving. I had trouble getting settled at other places I had gone to before....when working with Tim he makes everything seem calm and you can actually RELAX! It is great. I would recommend anyone to Tim. Tim is the best.
I've been to many acupuncturists over the years and Timothy is one of the best I've seen. He's got great energy and is a pleasure to be around. I went in for a pulled muscle in my lower back, a problem I've had for years off and on, and Timothy fixed me up in just a week! The space is quite beautiful as well. So calming and beautiful! A treat to visit.

I've been to many acupuncturists over the years and Timothy is one of the best I've seen. He's got great energy and is a pleasure to be around. I went in for a pulled muscle in my lower back, a problem I've had for years off and on, and Timothy fixed me up in just a week! The space is quite beautiful as well. So calming and beautiful! A treat to visit.
I went to see Tim after being in a car accident. My whole body was tight and I was unsettled and on edge. I have a ridiculous (but very real!) fear of needles, so I had always viewed acupuncture as something that might work for other people, but I would never do. After many friends recommended it, and I really needed some relief, I figured it was worth a try. I was immediately put to easy by Tim's gentle and very professional manner and the setting in the office.
I've always been apprehensive about acupuncture. I just didn't see the point of sticking needles in me. But, by the strong urging of a friend, I booked a session with Tim while visiting SF. Tim has a sweet, calming presence and Emergence Healing Arts is a beautiful, comfortable and easily accessible space. Tim invited me in, poured me some delicious tea and then took the time to learn about me and answer all my questions about acupuncture. Our session began with a guided meditation, which helped me to relax and focus on my body before he inserted the needles. There was no pain associated with the needles whatsoever. Once the needles were in place he performed reiki for a few minutes, and then left me alone to relax while the needles did their thing. I felt amazing during the entire session and I was completely surprised by the results. Soon after my session ended, I had no more pain in my neck or knee, and even more surprising, a week later there is still no pain! I would strongly recommend booking a session with Tim right now. Even if you don't think you need it, we could all use some time out to relax and get centered. What are you waiting for?
Tim is top notch. I've been going to him for the last several weeks. He listens when you explain your symptoms, challenges, circumstances, etc. Then applies his knowledge to offer a very thoughtful plan customized to your needs. He offers ongoing, achievable advice based on your progress and is very gentle with his acupuncture. For someone who's needle-adverse, he makes me feel comfortable and I barely feel the needles - if at all. I'm very glad Tim was recommended to me.
