The first month was more then enough, to actually know that acupuncture was playing a crucial role on my rehabilitation to control my anxiety and compulsive disorders, also it was making my depression fade away. Later i found out that acupuncture derived from the Chinese medicine , and that also expensive to make this type of appointments anywhere else, prices would go from $80-$200, Fortunately, I found this free service that provided to the community acupuncture to all. One year has passed by, and i been feeling good. Its addicting because you just feel better every time and you can feel it in your own body. This saved my life, and i believe that it could save many others, it was my century when a needed, it gave me spiritual shelter when i needed spiritual strength and peace.

Efficient, professionalism, and hospitality can best described this organization, an organization that it's determined to help people. The lady's that provide the service are very social and very welcoming.

No, intact i wouldn't, because service wise it's a good service, however they do need more support economically, and perhaps changing to a bigger place, where all the patients could fit, and privacy.

Herban Health has helped hundreds, now thousands of people in this community. I was fortunate enough to have been able to use my skills to promote good health and well being to an under-served community. I first started at a detoxification center giving free acupuncture to former drug and alcohol addicts. Then, the program started a Saturday clinic for the general public. I was amazed by the response of the people who came back week after week and who brought their friends and relatives because the clinic had helped them so much. The program is run by dedicated volunteers who love their craft and the community. I feel privileged to have been a part of this program with its selfless organizers and volunteers. Thank you Herban Health!

Herban Health is an amazing group. Run by an incredible woman Dyanne Ladine - it provides free acupuncture (donations are very welcome) to the people of East Palo Alto and the surrounding area. It is a drop-in clinic between 8:30 and 12 noon so anyone can come in, find a chair, sit down and receive an acupuncture treatment. Most points are done in the ear (ear acupuncture) and some on the body. People who receive acupuncture weekly are helped with all kinds of problems, pain, indigestion, headaches, insomnia etc.

My name is Oralia Montoya. A friend of mine told me about a free acupuncture clinic. I cannot believed it was free. I started comming to the acupuncture in Fall 2003. At that time, I have had not medical insurance or money to see an MD. The acupuncturists balanced my high blood pressure in three months. I also experienced pain relief from the fibromyalgia and ostheoarthritis and gain mobility. In additon, my stomach was swelling to the point that I looked like an eighth months pregnant. After few months from the acupuncture treatments the swelling decreased significantly. I was told the swelling was due to non proper functioning of liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen. As a result of all these conditions, I have had sleep disorders. But After the first acupuncture treatment, I slept like a baby. I will be forever gratful to all volunteer acupuncturists at Herban Health Free Acupuncture Clinic and its founder Dyanne Ladine. Mi nombre es Oralia Montoya. Una de mis amigas me dijo acerca de Herban Health una clinica gratuita de acupuntura. No podia creer que fuera gratis. Empeze a asistir a la acupuntura en otono 2003, En ese tiempo no tenia aseguranza medica ni dinero para ver un Medico. La(os) acupunturistas balancearon mi alta presion en tres meses. Tambien experiemnte alivio al dolor causado por la fibromialgia y la oesteoartritis y recupere mobilidad. Ademas mi estomago estaba inflamado al punto que parecia que tenia ocho meses de embarazo. Me dijeron que la inflamacion del estomago se debia a que el higado, la vesicula, el pancreas y el bazo no funcionan bien. Despues de pocos meses de tratamientos, la inflamacion disminuyo signifacantemente. Como resusltado de estas condiciones tenia desordenes del sueno, pero despues del primer tratamiento de acupuntura, dormi como un bebe. Siempre estare agradecida con toda(o)s loa acupunturistas de la clinica gratuita de Herban Health y su fundadora DYanne Ladine. Oralia Montoya

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Regarding the sleep disorders, I experience the result during the first visit in 2003. The hipertension was totally balanced in about three months as well as the swelling of the stomach.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have a specific building to set up the clinic instead of bring the charts to different places where the acupuncture is provided.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the loving kindness of the acupuncturists no matter what health conditions, who the patients are, social and economical status. All of us are treated equally

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very loving and caring as well as very concern in make as as patients feel better. They also take into consideration the emotional part in addition to the physical symptoms.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Donated half to build a clinic and hire other professionals in alternative medicine to fulfill all the needs of the patients.

Ways to make it better...

there is a specific place where we can attend to treatments like in a regular clinic.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The amazing work that has been provided with few volunteer acupuncturists.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I admired the wonderful work that Dyanne and the volunteers provided despite the lack of resources and the determination to help others without strings attach.

I have worked for about 5 years as a volunteer acupuncturist with Herban Health at the VA in Menlo Park and at Ravenswood Medical Clinic in East Palo Alto. On at least 2 occasions I have taken part in half day seminars on nutrition to educate our patients. In general I think that patients find our services very helpful as evidenced by the healthy attendance at the two clinics that I work. Sometimes I think we try to do too much in the short time we have with patients, especially the Saturday clinic at Ravenswood.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Recruit more volunteers. Limit the number of needles per patient. Limit the number of patients for the Ravenswood Clinic. I think we could provide better service if we saw fewer patients.
