  • I am more committed to Angela as my acupuncturist than I am to my own doctor. Google Reviewer

  • Angela has helped me with several issues dating back to 2014. I initially saw her for shoulder discomfort. Within a few treatments my shoulder pain was gone! This past month I sought Angela's help with a sleep disorder. Angela spent a lot of time discussing anything that might have been effecting my sleeping through the night. Together we decided I would see her twice a week for a few weeks. I am sleeping better than I have in years. Angela is a dedicated professional. I highly recommend her. -DC

  • I have taken my 10 year daughter dealing with anxiety to see Angela in her Acton location, and I couldn't be more happy with everything about the experience! Angela is not only very knowledgeable, she is warm and welcoming, and very reassuring to my daughter, who was very nervous about getting acupuncture. My daughter now looks forward to seeing Angela for every appointment, and the treatments have been very effective! -KM

  • I've had a number of significant, sport-related aches, pain, and injuries over the last several years (e.g., post-op recovery from lumbar discectomy, bursitis, inflamed rotator cuff). Angela has done an exceptional job helping me manage pain during acute flare ups, and maintaining my overall wellbeing. I highly recommend Angela if you're thinking about acupuncture - she is truly exceptional. -AL

  • Angela is truly an amazing person and quite professional. She is easy going but extremely tuned in to her clients.. and very reliable. She offers terrific advice along with her treatments. She is cautious and wise. I was a total cynic and tried this for an issue the docs could not figure out. I was delighted to learn all the areas in which she can be helpful and she was the first to say "I do not think you need me any more, but you are welcome to come anytime" The location is very easy and I would highly recommend her and her services! -EW

  • Most of the experiences that happened in my life were random, unexpected, coincidental, or if you prefer, fated — they just happened, outside of my anticipation. I met Angela at her office in the South End, and at that time, didn’t realize it was “a blessing in disguise”. We connected immediately and I was amazed at her attentiveness, listening skills, and mostly congruence during the acupuncture treatment. After sharing many long conversations about life, Chinese Medicine and herbs, I decided to spend quality time with meaningful people who were high performers. So, I hired Angela to be my Coach and work with me. She connected me with a Personal Trainer a year ago and I’m still progressing to a higher level of fitness in 2019. Just recently over the Christmas holidays, she challenged me to do the 21 day Sugar Detox Program and initially I said NO WAY - I LOVE SUGAR. Well, I was wrong again because I crushed it with another WIN! and I’m amazed how great it went. Angela is the person, who will expose you to new ideas and adventures. She is looking out for your long term health, as well. She’s concerned about your emotions, well being, and happiness and is the GROWTH FRIEND that you can trust with anything. By the same token, she can also make you have a good hearty laugh too. Also, its gratifying to know that she has your best interest at heart. If you want to go to the next level, it’s paramount to seek clarity in your life. A Coach will point the way for you and help you demonstrate the courage, which generates the energy to make things happen. Angela will introduce you to quality people with integrity and that’s why I hired her to be my Coach! So, don’t be afraid to invest in yourself. G O. F O R. I T. -PR

  • I originally came to Angela over a year ago at the recommendation of a trainer, to see if she could help with my seasonal allergies, since traditional OTC medications weren't making a dent in it.  I admit, I was a skeptic, but I'm totally converted now. Angela made me feel welcome, answered all of my myriad of questions, and made the whole process feel easy and natural.  Her treatments made an immediate dent in my already-in-progress allergy season (walk in with a headache and blocked sinuses ... walk out feeling clear headed!).  After the season was over, I went for maintenance and just general wellness. Huge perks for me. This season, we worked together on some lifestyle changes as well as starting well before the season to boost my immune system.  This year, my allergies were almost gone! From a business perspective, one of the things I look for to feel I can trust someone is a lack of pressure for future appointments.  Angela's never made me feel like I MUST book more appointments, and, with my season this year just about over, she actually suggested me living on my own, with the adjustments we'd previously made, and my immediate need for treatment over.  She's really helped me solve my immediate issues, AND given me tools to manage on my own. If I need a touch-up, or in advance of next season, I will DEFINITELY return to her. I'd recommend her to anyone who asked (hence this review!), and would definitely go see her for other issues. -WE

  • It's so refreshing to have a healthcare provider who will sit with you and really listen to what you have going on. Angela is an extremely thoughtful person and puts me at ease with every visit. I see Angela for general health maintenance, but I also have occasional shortness of breath. Angela will put pressure on my diaphragm and it will feel very tender and painful, but when the time comes to remove the needles the pain is gone and in place there's a lightness in my breathing. Angela's office is also a very calming atmosphere where some downtime becomes a welcome and much needed treat. My time with Angela serves as a reminder to slow down and enjoy life. I'm always surprised by how great I feel after a treatment. I feel like I'm floating down the street. Many thanks to Angela for being a truly caring partner in my health and happiness. -EA

  • I was introduced to Angela by someone in the fitness industry who was careful to give advice.  I had never tried acupuncture previously but had hoped it could help with some nagging neck & back issues as well as seasonal allergies.  In addition to having a great disposition, Angela was very diligent in getting to know my issues from the start and begins every appointment getting an update/feedback.  Her treatments have been very helpful, not to mention relaxing to the point that I always seem to doze off. Highly recommended. -BH 

  • I have been getting treated for infertility for almost five months & really enjoy the services provided by Angela. I truly believe my weekly treatments helped in getting pregnant & have provided a place for me to relax during a stressful time. HD

  • I started going to acupuncture about 18 months ago as I was told it would be helpful for fertility and therefore pregnancy. Immediately I was reassured.  I met Angela and right off the bat I knew that I had made the right decision. Her temperament and demeanor was so relaxing and in moments I trusted her with all my feelings, concerns and my future. She really listened to me and helped me get my cycles on track, helped me to get pregnant and have an absolutely flawless pregnancy (after going to her 1 day a week) and delivery. I was pretty ill in the first trimester, lots of nausea and back pain. Angela helped me get through that difficult time. She became more to me than just someone helping with acupuncture and to better my health, she became someone that I trusted and shared many things with. She is excellent at what she does and her practice is absolutely perfect for anyone looking for treatment. I really felt like a priority and not just another random patient that many times I do feel at these large organizations. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone looking to improve their health! -EM

  • Angela came highly recommended by a personal trainer who had experienced hip pain. I came with severe knee pain. Angela took my entire lifestyle into account when treating me and offered recommendations (some of which I have followed, but alas, I can't do everything asked of me). My knees have improved over the months and they let me know when it's time for a return visit. Angela listens and adjusts my treatments to whatever is happening at that time. She gives me her time and attention without making me feel as though I am just one in a line of clients. A rare thing these days. -TM

  • I have have been working with Angela for years and absolutely love going to her! She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough- and had come recommended to me initially by one of my best friends who went to school with her. I typically see her for general well being and health, but last year when I had bursitis and tendonitis in my right hip, her treatments was the ONLY thing, after 5 weeks of struggling in pain and limping around, that eliminated the pain, within 1 session! Angela is one of the nicest people, and really cares to take the time and focus on your personal health and experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone- for specific conditions, or just recalibrate your body and energy in general. -MB

  • I have been seeing Angela for the past year.  She really and truly is amazing! I initially saw her for allergies, sinus, headaches, low energy and stress.  But then I pulled a muscle, and she provided relief for that too! Angela's calming presences, compassionate care and health knowledge make her client's experience very healing.  I continue to see Angela for tune ups, and mostly for the space she creates for me to practice good self-care.

  • I came to Angela with a myriad of ailments that my primary care physician was recommending pills to alleviate symptoms. I suffered from painful sciatica, psoriasis breakouts that covered most of my scalp, difficulty getting restful sleep, and struggles with weight loss. During my first visit my sciatica was acting up and within a few minutes into the treatment she asked me how my pain was and it had drastically reduced. After 2 months of treatment my pain has reduced to almost completely gone. Angela introduced me to a Whole30 lifestyle and I now have very few psoriasis breakouts and I've lost 18lbs in my first 2 months of treatment.  Angela is extremely talented and listens to what the root issues are and looks for solutions for you. I highly recommend you choose Angela as your acupuncturist. -KL

  • I was a non-believer and needle-phobe until I went to see Angela for seasonal allergies a couple of years ago.  Now I am a convert, plus the needles are more appropriately described as 'filaments', as they are just that thin!  Not only does Angela explain her craft, but she takes time to find out what other factors may be contributing to whatever issue you experiencing.  In fact, she keeps a record of your visits/ symptoms just as a Western medical doctor does, and makes notations during every visit. I leave Angela with a pressure-free head, able to breathe, and completely relaxed.  I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone. A pleasant surprise/ shock was that Angela tells me when she thinks I am no longer in need of her services - no life-long, never-ending series of treatments. -SB

  • The most effective Acupuncturist treatment I've had so far. I have seen 3 other local acupuncturists in the past and I have received more relief and faster results from Angela at Healthy Channels than the others. She is very attentive, caring and a great listener. I have seen her for everything from stress to back pain to lingering colds & flu and she always seems to get me back on me feet. If you are considering acupuncture, you need to see Angela. I highly recommend her services and her new office is beautiful and very easy to get to by car or train. -AL

  • I went to see Angela , for migraines , headaches and stress . I always looked forward to the time . She listens and works out what you need . I found out things about my body I never knew . I used to have headaches daily and migraines were about 5 a month. With her help along with some advice in life style changes from the doctor I no longer have headaches and I've had 4 four migraines since last August . I feel fantastic. I am still working on the stress but not having a pounding head helps reduce it. You should make an appointment and go see her. I don't see her now but I have sent friends to her who loved the experience too. -OS

  • Angela is my favorite Acupuncturist by far.  I used to live in Boston and it was amazing being able to go to her all the time, but unfortunately I had to move.  I have not been able to find someone that helps as much as Angela. She has the most gentle touch and calming presence.  I would 100% recommend her and I have in the past. She goes above and beyond to make you feel important. She is the best you will find! -Allison

  • I was introduced to Angela through a good friend. I had never tried acupuncture before and this was a great way to get introduced. I was going to help me with stress and some muscle aches. After the first treatment I felt great. The benefits continued the weeks went by. Angela does a great job of understanding what is going on with you and tailoring that to your treatment each and every time. -JA

  • I had never considered acupuncture before, and was quite unsure about the whole idea when I first met Angela.  She quickly converted me to a fan by essentially curing a neck pain issue that had resisted all sorts of other therapy including chiropractor and regular orthopedic approaches. Try it.  You'll like it. -BG

  • I was introduced to Angela by a trusted friend, who could not say enough great things about her,  because I had hurt my back and needed some serious relief. Angela was extremely accommodating to my schedule and got me in right away. The session was relaxing while remaining informational.  I highly recommend Angela's services! -ML

  • I can't speak highly enough about Angela and her acupuncture practice. I went to her for about a year and a half consistently, all the way through my pregnancy until the very end. I saw a marked improvement in my mood, recurrent hip pain, headaches, and the general woes of pregnancy. I've referred countless friends to her and my husband echoes my sentiments about her. Effective, patient, warm, and helpful in suggesting how to live a healthy life in general. I miss my weekly treatments and would recommend Angela to anyone. -Sarah

  • Angela has helped me manage my seasonal allergies and improve my energy levels.  She is a wonderful acupuncturist and I would recommend her to anyone. You won't find anyone better. -Ashley

  • I first began to see Angela for acupuncture a few years ago.  She is fantastic - extremely personable, knowledgeable, and helpful.  I always loved going to my appointments because I left feeling completely relaxed.  I sought help for fertility, headaches and stress relief and continued to see her for about two years.  She also prescribed Chinese herbs for a period of time which I felt were very helpful. I recommend her without hesitation! -JA

  • Angela is incredibly talented. She pays close attention to what the complaint is and is so in tune with her clients needs.  She is very caring and careful. I went to her twice per month for about a year. If I worked or lived close by I would still be going. I truly miss the relaxed feeling for several days after seeing her. For any one considering acupuncture for the first time, try it with Angela!  She's one of a kind! -KM

  • Angela is amazing!   I have been going to her once a week for almost two years.   She is talented, professional and flexible. I look forward to our appointments every week.  I originally went to her for fertility but also enjoyed the benefits of her treatments for other ailments.   I would highly recommend going to Angela! -Emily

  • I originally found Angela after searching on Yelp somewhat skeptically for an acupuncturist who could help with fertility problems. We had tried unsuccessfully for more than a year to get pregnant and I was willing to give it a shot. Three months of weekly treatments with Angela and - you guessed it- pregnant!! Then I pinched a nerve nursing the baby and it was unbearable. Angela fixed me in one session. I returned to her two months before my second pregnancy, and remain a convinced convert who believes she made it happen. Angela is as kind, gentle, soothing and therapeutic as it gets! Highly recommend!! -EM

  • Angela at Healthy Channels has helped me quite a bit.  My health has improved since I have been going to her. She helped me control my stress, insomnia, foot pain.   It is amazing. I highly recommend going to see Angela! -TS
