I have been treated for hip pain issues. I have found that the acupuncture has helped to control the pain and discomfort that I have been experiencing. I would recommend Starting Acupuncture if you are looking for relief that you have not received with other forms of treatment. - S.F.

I'm impressed. Dr. Ellie is an excellent provider. She successfully relieved a migraine in progress. The ones in between are usually less severe than they were. That's why I sought out Starting Point. A side benefit has been better sleep and reflux relief. - A.S.

I was recommended to Dr. Ellie by my neighbor. I can't thank her enough. I have had several acupuncture treatments over the past four weeks and the results are miraculous for my allergies. I expect to continue on to wellness treatment. The office is peaceful, very clean and operated in an extremely professional manner. - D.C.

I am a believer in Acupuncture, I have chronic Neck and arm pain and the treatments I have received have made the pain go away. I started my appointments in so much pain I could not lay down and relax so I started using a chair. By the 5th or 6th appointment I was able to relax and lay down. It's not an overnight treatment but I would suggest to anyone to try this and highly recommend Starting Point. - W.M.

Dr. Ellie was great. I came in to see her with a foot issue and I was also very stressed out. Her ongoing acupuncture treatments really helped with my foot and especially with my stress levels. She is professional offices were comfortable I enjoyed every time I went in.I would recommend her anytime. - D.D.
