My husband and I started acupuncture treatment with a great degree of skepticism but it was our last resort to find a cure for my husband's anxiety problem. It was affecting his quality of life. To our amazement after visiting Steve for a number of weeks he is completely cured of his anxiety. I still can't believe this miracle that Steve has performed and I am now a true believer in his treatment. The 100% success rate for his disabling anxiety problem speaks volumes for the power of acupuncture and Steve's complete competency in his field. Thank you Steve.

I was referred to Steve Phillips by Kaiser for headaches, where I've been treated for many years. I have daily headaches with several severe migraines every year bad enough to cause me to miss work for several days at a time.

After my first visit I had a few days of minimal headaches; after three or four visits I noticed a dramatic improvement in both frequency and severity of headache. Additionally, I noticed I no longer had a need to continue taking a prescription anxiety medication which I'd been taking for years, so I stopped taking it. In hindsight I realize the acupuncture treatments were indirectly responsible for this change.

I'm very happy I was referred to Mr. Phillips and would recommend him to anyone.

I started going to the Acupuncture Center in September of 2007. Prior to my first treatment with Steve, I was constantly anxious. I would get attacks frequently. Sometimes I would feel like I was at the end of my rope, like I had no way to escape the way I felt. Steve listened to all of my concerns and adapted a treatment plan that made me feel safe. I feel he truly cares for his patents well being. On occasion I have missed a week with Steve and find that I feel much more anxious than I normally feel. Today I still treat with Steve, but I feel much more in control of how I feel. I feel hopeful for the future. One that is free of anxiety.


After a fall two years ago, doctors found signs of multiple sclerosis. Ever since then, Steve has been treating me for that as well as back and leg pain and weakness. Today I feel strong and stable, and I look forward to my future with confidence and enthusiasm. The acupuncture has also helped me a lot with stress and anxiety.

Re: Steve Phillips

I am a patient of Steve Phillips. I came to him with complaints of lipoma of the neck and leg, and stress levels that bring on panic attacks.

Since coming to Steve, the lipoma in my leg has dissipated and the one in my neck is half its size. I believe it would be smaller than that, but due to my constant travel schedule and my failure to keep all of my appointments, he has not had a chance to fully focus on it like he would like to.

My stress levels are minimal after I leave Steve's office. I am calm and at peace. When Steve first started seeing me, I was WIRED (for lack of a better word)…now I relax and fall asleep on the table, and leave feeling great.

I have been to 2 other acupuncturists over the last 10 years. Never once did I leave their offices feeling relaxed.

I enjoy seeing Steve because I can communicate with him. He answers any questions or concerns I may have. He an understanding and kind person. He's great at what he does and he clearly enjoys what he does for his patients.

I recommend Steve to my own patients as well as friends who live in this area.

I first saw Steve Phillips for acupuncture treatments in 2004. I was experiencing headaches and nausea from subdural hematomas. The sessions helped to lessen these symptoms. Over the past few years I have undergone acupuncture treatments for a variety of conditions such as anxiety, pain in my knees, my shoulder and a sinus condition. All of these sessions have given positive results. I presently continue with the acupuncture sessions to maintain good health and a sense of well-being.

Steve Phillips has been treating me for around two years assisting me to cope with several chronic medical issues of mine, which include chronic low back pain, a rotator cuff problem in my shoulder, and anxiety. I can say without any doubt that Steve is very professional and has a deep concern for his patients. Prior to each session, Steve is sure to evaluate me and makes sure to address any issues that are currently hindering me. He is then able to adjust my treatment so that I'm able to gain the maximum benefit from the session. Steve has always clearly explained his recommended treatment with me and made sure that I was comfortable with his suggestion before proceeding.

Through the past two years with regular acupuncture treatments I have found that most of my medical issues are much easier to manage. The back and shoulder pain is much improved. In addition, each session has allowed me the time to grow through the solitude and quiet music which allows me to easily fall into a meditative state and focus on my body and spirit. This greatly helps my anxiety.

I would highly recommend to someone who is having difficulty maintaining any medical issue to sincerely consider Steve Phillips Acupuncture Clinic. It truly is an incredible alternative method of treatment to utilize in conjunction with your current medical treatments.

My experience with Steve at the acupuncture clinic has been very positive. On the advice of a friend I sought out an acupuncturist for the treatment of anxiety as well as insomnia. Each session, along with being extremely calming in and of itself, has contributed to what I've noticed has been a real decline in my anxiety and an increase in my ability to sleep well and through the night. I'm so pleased with the results and I definitely recommend it to others with anxiety and insomnia. And as a side note to those who may be anxious about just receiving acupuncture, relax! It's a very calming experience!
