Cupping and acupuncture treatments with Dr. Nirali Patel was the BEST spontaneous decision I have ever made!! I work in a research lab where I am constantly doing a lot of the same repetitive work, not realizing the strain this is having on my arms, shoulder and back. I was in a car accident in January and my back and neck pain was even worse. I tried deep tissue massages but that did nothing for me. One day of pain relief then back to the normal discomfort. I discovered cupping therapy and thought why not let’s try it and that where I looked up and found Dr. Nirali Patel. She is an amazing woman and I love her personality and the conversations we have. She gets straight to the point in order to figure out what exactly could be causing the discomfort. Playing with her therapy dogs at the end of my appt is the best part of the day. If it wasn’t for her I would not have known how terribly inflamed and bad my neck, shoulders and back really were. She recommended acupuncture and I was definitely nervous because I’ve heard so many bad things but she took all those fears away and the first time I tried it, i felt amazing (not an exaggeration) it felt great for a few days but of course my back was so bad that it was only temporary relief. However, I have been going to her consistently (now onto my 5th session) and I cannot tell you how amazing I feel. I literally fall asleep every time, it’s so soothing and relaxing! I can sleep better at night because I don’t have discomfort in my neck anymore. My posture and improve A LOT! I don’t get constant mild headaches anymore because she was able to release the exact point that was traveling up from my mid back that was causing all that pain and discomfort. Now, she’s focusing on my arms and I’ve already felt more of a difference than any massages I’ve had. If massages aren’t working try acupuncture. Dr. Nirali is professional and highly skilled in her field. I would highly recommend people to visit and try it out. It’s never uncomfortable and she really does work with full dedication and enjoys what she does. Actual have an appt with her in 2 hours! Cannot wait!!

Back in February I injured my knee during training. I powered through the pain and continued training for about a week. It was at the point where the swelling was so bad that walking was unbearable. I finally went to seek medical attention and was told that I need to ice, rest and elevate my knee. I was also prescribed ointment for the arthritis which managed the pain a bit but the swelling continued. I had a couple sports massages done but my knee would swell up again. Some of my friends told me to try acupuncture. I contacted a few places and Dr Patel was the first one to respond. After two weeks of pain, I met with Dr Patel. I explained the circumstances to my injury and right off the bat she explained what the underlying issue is and off I went for my first acupuncture treatment. She also did the cupping treatment and wow, I felt the difference immediately. Not only did the swelling decrease but I was able to put more weight on that leg and walk without limping. I went the following week for another treatment and Dr Patel said I have sciatica which may be the root of the swelling and pain down my leg. COVID-19 came into play and my sessions were on hold for a few weeks. My sciatica was in full effect and getting a good nights sleep was challenging. When Dr Patel’s office opened up again I began seeing her once a week and could feel a difference after each session. The sharp pain I was feeling on the inside of my knee had subsided significantly and only slight swelling would occur after long walks or workouts. I wish I had started acupuncture and cupping treatments sooner. And I can’t say enough about the personal care and professionalism I received from Dr Patel each time I go in. She’s always determined to make sure I’m pain free and I am certainly on my way. Thank you Dr Patel for healing me and allowing me to continue my training when I was close to throwing in the towel.
