I have been working with Janet Borges for the last 18 years (since I moved to Richmond). She graduated from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, where I used to go for treatment when living there. I know of the rigorous, authentically Chinese medicine training she had there. Janet has been my primary health practitioner ever since. She is conscientious and attentive. She has treated everything from physical ailments to emotional duress with incredible success. I see her every six weeks just to keep my body strong.

Janet’s considerable empathy and depth of knowledge has provided me healing in many body/mind areas, including shoulder injury, grief, while providing overall balance in the midst of big life transitions and travel work schedule. She’s direct, compassionate and non-judgmental. She blends East and West seamlessly into her practice and asks YOU what you are looking for with each acupuncture appointment. Janet’s office is serene, infused with natural light, and smells fantastic–all important to me! Thank you Janet for your skillful, kind care.

I have only had six months with Janet and I absolutely feel 100% better every time I leave her office-. She is so caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine. Since seeing her my meniers vertigo attacks have drastically decreased and tinnitus is almost nonexistent. She has made my life so much better in so many ways and I can’t thank her enough. I highly recommend Janet to anyone.

Janet is AMAZING. A friend recommended her to me because I was having pain issues. I hadn’t really considered it because I don’t like needles, but this is very different. She is so thorough and thoughtful. She is worth every penny. I highly recommend you go see her, you won’t regret it.
