Acupuncture & Bodywork Testimonials
Thanks again for a wonderful experience. After the first visit, Kristen helped me more than a month of physical therapy - and I have never felt better than I did during my month in San Francisco. I look forward to coming back next January!

Kristen gives the best massage I have ever experienced! I've been seeing her for over a year now. Four years ago, I blew out my knee playing sports-- ruptured my patellar tendon. Kristen was the first massage therapist to not only address my knee but all the other misalignment issues that continue to plague me. She is generous with her time and energy, and unselfish, frequently recommending other stretches, modalities and specialists I should contact for corrective work. Her massages are collaborative, rejuvenating and restorative. If you have an issue like mine, I would contact her immediately. Thanks Kristen!

"The massage I received from Kristen was delightful. We chose to give extra attention to my neck and shoulders and I was impressed because she was able to smoothly loosen and relax those areas in a non aggressive way. Kristen used some great techniques. After the massage I felt refreshed, similar to say finishing a good yoga session; relaxed, restored, yet ready to move forward with my day. Thanks Kristen!”
“Kristen performed an AMAZING massage. At least now, she comes right to your home with the massage table. She not only made my shoulders and neck feel weightless; she actually figured out the cause of my shoulder pain! I really felt like she is attentive to long-term wellness rather than a quick fix. Yay for Kristen! The miracle worker!”

ready to face the world..."
Kristen is amazing! Her massage sessions always leave me feeling recharged and ready to face the world. She is thoughtful about the specific needs of her patients and offers integration of other healing techniques that are always spot on!

Kristen Chew is a fantastic Acupuncture & Bodywork practitioner! I have referred countless patients and clients to her - and they always rave about her work. Kristen is meticulous and always generous with her attention and time, and now with her newly expanded hours Thursdays & Saturdays at Dan Tian Wellness it will be even easier to make an appointment with her. If you have any aches, pains, chronic ailments, I recommend giving her a call! (y) (y) (y)

"I was introduced to acu-patching by my sister who resides in the bay area. She knew I couldn’t access my acupuncturist as a result of the current pandemic. She suggested I try acu-patching to achieve the benefit I receive from acupuncture. The issues I wanted to address were seasonal allergies and boosting my immune system. The first night I started the patching I slept through the night uninterrupted for 8.5 hours. That day my allergies were non existent. At the end of the 6 days of patching I had increased endurance and minimal symptoms from my allergies. I am so grateful for all the benefits I received from the patching." - Patty H., Windsor, CT

"I was in touch with Kristen at the beginning of SIP. I usually see her about every 3-4 weeks depending on my symptoms. I like to use acupuncture for general immunity as well as to assist with sleep and stress reduction. I used the patches a few weeks back, as I knew I would not have access to acupuncture for months. They definitely helped ease the tension I was experiencing in my neck and shoulders and I was able to sleep much better. I look forward to using them again!”
"...I found myself feeling lighter during the week
and not as worried.
I even had my sense of humor back...."
"My friend here in CT told me about Kristen and her patches. I was interested for sure since pre-pandemic I was going to an acupuncturist here 2x a month. I had never heard about “patches” so was interested but a bit apprehensive. I was just so amazed at how great the tele-health conference was. I really felt a connection with Kristen even through the computer. She is very knowledgeable and asked awesome questions and even looked at my tongue. She sent me some great articles about the patches which was helpful.
“The acu-patches were a huge surprise and immensely helpful in reducing my pain. Would definitely recommend!”

"I have been a patient of Kristen’s for the past year and when shelter in place happened, acupuncture was one of the first things I worried about losing. I noticed my symptoms creeping in with the abundant stress and anxiety, and then my husband and I got very sick and I felt like my body was in complete chaos. Thankfully Kristen suggested using the patches and an acupressure routine. She gracefully guided me through the process and helped me address what was working and what needed tweaking. I have been using the patches for a couple of weeks now and the positive difference is extreme. I am so grateful to have this tool until we can meet face to face again.”

"I have been trying Kristen's regimen for new phototherapy patches for a week, and I find them to be very helpful as an alternative treatment method when you can't go in for acupuncture. After a tele-video consultation, Kristen comes up with an individualized plan for your treatment with the patches. The plan consists of a detailed introduction to the LifeWave patches and phototherapy, as well as instructions on what to do (water intake, supplements) and a detailed timeline of when to apply and remove patches. You place the patches on acupuncture points to stimulate these points and create a desired effect on the body. I felt my sleep quality and stress improving in just the first two days of applying these patches. It's great having the effects of an acupuncture session but you get to be pro-active in your own treatment with Kristen's expert guidance!”
