Testimonials

 
I have known Elaina Greenberg since 2004. Elaina has treated me as well as many of my patients. She is an excellent practitioner of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and has helped both my patients and myself very much. Elaina is a warm, compassionate person who treats her clients holistically and with the utmost integrity. Whenever I referred a patient to her, I knew they would be receiving excellent care.

Elaina is a gifted acupuncturist. She brings the skill of her training and experience along with deep wisdom and compassion to each session. I always feel I have her whole attention, and that she cares for me and about me. She is uniquely talented in her ability to create a healing partnership. Elaina has my highest personal and professional regard, and I enthusiastically recommend her.

Elaina Greenberg is very effective and easy to talk to. Acupuncture is used to treat a variety of ailments, but is particularly effective at reducing pain. It’s easy to get in to see her, she always returns calls, and her acupuncture works.

I’ve been to Elaina twice with excellent results, first when my back went out, then to help ease nicotine cravings when I was quitting smoking cold turkey.

One of the first things I noticed that makes Elaina a great provider is the amount of time she took on my first visit—I’ve been to other acupuncturists, and she has by far the most in-depth first visit that I have experienced. She is very easy to talk to & I really felt like she understood me and my health history after this. It is very comforting to have a health care professional that is so involved in getting to know their patients.

I also appreciate that she’s had experience working in a Shanghai Hospital, and currently is a supervisor the clinic at Yo San, a Los Angeles University that teaches chinese medicine.

I’m writing this review as Elaina is building her practice in Santa Monica after running a successful practice for more than a decade in Seattle. I hope that you’ll go see Elaina, she truly stands out from the myriad of other providers in the area.

Elaina Greenberg is an amazing healer. She is so thorough, kind and committed to the highest level of care. I love the fact that she checks on you frequently, makes adjustments and talks with you during the treatment. I have been to several acupuncturists over the years and never experienced this level of care before. She is awesome!
— Wendy K.
I’ve seen many providers over the years in the natural healing arts, and I have to say that Elaina’s bedside manner is above and beyond the norm. When I learned that Elaina was moving her Seattle-based practice to Los Angeles, I thought to myself “Seattle’s loss is LA’s gain!”

Finding a great health care provider can be a challenge, and that’s why I’m taking the time to write this review for fellow Yelpers. If you are in the LA area and looking for a wise accupuncturist with a solid academic background, Elaina Greenberg is the woman for you.

Not only is Elaina VERY SMART, she is exceptionally compassionate. Elaina always listened to what I had to say, and developed a treatment plan that helped me manage and eventually get rid of chronic migraines and other women’s health issues I’d been dealing with for years.

I am forever grateful for the pain management and herbal remedies that Elaina brought to my life, and think about her warm, optimistic, and intuitive spirit often.

I’d never been to an acupuncturist before I met Elaina. I’ll be honest, I was a bit nervous during my first session. Elaina has this warmth and sense of pure compassion that really puts you to ease. Her depth of knowledge of her skill is evident from the moment she starts speaking and I trusted her to take care of me within the first minutes of meeting her. Since I don’t have anyone to compare her to, I really hope anyone else out there receives the type of treatment Elaina has to offer. If not, you’re missing out!

Elaina is fantastic at what she does and I always look forward to my acupuncture + cupping appointment with her. Her office is beautiful, clean, professional, and I always leave feeling better than I did before! I have noticed my anxiety reduce greatly since working with her and the stiffness in my shoulders and neck seem to have released some tension (ahh finally!). She really takes the time to listen to your concerns and has a TON of knowledge to share. I highly recommend Elaina!

If you are a “patient x” and seeking alternative care when Western medicine has given up on you , don’t give up ! Go see Elaina! She will help you get your life back ! I’m on my way to healing , she has changed my attitude, mood & gives me hope ! That’s HUGE!

Elaina is a calm force in the midst of everyday chaos! She comprehends what’s really going on inside your body and I leave her office feeling lighter. Whether I strive to heal, relax or focus, she can feel what’s needed. She is extremely new nonjudgmental and open-minded which is a relieve. She studied in China and taught at Yo San university, so she has a healthy balance between eastern and western medicine. I highly recommend her for both Acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

Elaina is a wonderful, compassionate, and unusually intelligent person who has helped me feel confident and relaxed about a science [acupuncture] I never really understood. I have so much confidence in Elaina, as she has helped me in numerous ways. I always trust her judgement. Elaina explains how she can help after assessing me at each visit, and is concerned with any discomfort and worry, and I highly recommend her. She has helped me with pain, anxiety, digestion and overall well-being. You will not be disappointed!
— Susanne K.
I absolutely love coming in to see Elaina. Not only is she a true professional, she is also a pleasure to be around. I immediately felt comfortable with her from the first time we met. Elaina takes the time to find the cause of a problem, which in my opinion is way more effective than just treating symptoms. She has a wealth of knowledge within acupuncture and oriental medicine. I know that I am in the best of hands. To top it off, she’s hilarious! Our conversations are always full of laughter. Long story short, she’s highly recommended!

After my first visit with Ms. Greenberg, I felt a tremendous amount of relief from the morning sickness & migraines that plagued me during my pregnancy. I have continued to seek treatment from her postpartum and would higly recommend Ms. Greenberg’s practice to anyone looking for acupuncture! She has a calming demeanor and is patient and thorough with questions and treatment.

Yelp doesn’t have enough stars for Elaina! She is the absolute best acupuncturist in Los Angeles. I have been dealing with a chronic illness for a few years and have seen many many practioners. She was one of the few people who was actually able to calm my fears and explain what was happening in my body. In addition to being an extremely calming presence, Elaina is kind, empathetic, super smart and hilarious. Her treatments always help me feel better and calmer. I also appreciate that she communicates regularly with my care team including my primary doctor (who loves her as well). Love you Elaina, you rock!!

Let me share with you a miracle named Elaina.
I came to see her this week. I was weak, depressed, with some very bad nausea (part of an ongoing digestive problems), and on top of everything - I had an important business meeting at noon, a job opportunity that I’ve waited 2 months for.
— Lee S.
Ive been to other places and none has been as connected to the individuals spirit along with the body. Truly, I feel like she is so knowledgable about how the body works under certain emotional stresses. Specifically what parts of the body will suffer.
— Milena B.
I had always wanted to get acupuncture and I am so happy I found Elaina! I had been struggling with getting consistent sleep along with chronic issues with my cycle. I can see such an improvement with my quality of sleep and my cycle is starting to resemble a normal one since coming to Elaina.
— Erin S.
I cannot give Elaina a glowing enough review. I’ve been receiving acupuncture treatment for more than 10 years, but the person I used to see in Los Angeles retired. I found Elaina through YELP and couldn’t be more pleased! I was especially looking for someone who included 5 Element in their practice, and Elaina does that and more. I felt immediately at home with her. Last week I mentioned in passing that I could hear my pulse in my ear. It never occurred to me that she might be able to do something about it! Sure enough, by the end of my session, I was better. That’s just one example of how attentively she listens and her range of skills!
