Here are some testimonials from patients Trish has worked with:
I have consistently received acupuncture treatments from Trish Twiford for over 7 years. I would never consider stopping the treatments and my relationship with her. My health and well-being have dramatically improved since working with her. Through Trish’s coaching and counseling I have a much better understanding of myself and am better able to understand and interact with those in my life. The clarity of my thinking and understanding of different situations is better. I am more mindful and empathetic of my and also others’ needs. Previously I was sometimes anxious and often overwhelmed; I can now approach every day in a calm and peaceful manner. My life feel less chaotic and less stressful.
In addition to the positive psychological benefits of acupuncture I have learned so much about my body, body systems in general and health conditions. I was initially treated for chronic neck and back pain. Over the years it has significantly decreased and has almost totally gone away. If there is a flare-up, it is quickly resolved. Acupuncture has also help to alleviate my asthma and respiratory issues. With physical manipulation, exercise guidance, dietary suggestions and use of herbal teas my symptoms are minimal if any. Besides acupuncture reducing my pain, it allows for a deeper and more restorative sleep.
I can’t imagine my life without acupuncture and Trish as my provider. The overall quality of my life has been enhanced and for this I am forever grateful.”
Trish is truly fantastic! She is skilled and knowledgable, and also down to earth and compassionate. Not only am I healthier since I started working with Trish but I also feel supported in body and soul. I am so lucky to have found Trish and I have no reservations in recommending Trish to others.”
My daughter and I both came to Trish with specific pain to be addressed. After the first appointment, we both were sleeping better, feeling more energetic and had reduction in the symptoms that brought us to Trish. Trish is a joy to work with, funny, insightful and willing to share her knowledge. Trish took the time to get to know us, treating the entire person, not just the symptoms. I highly recommend her for acupuncture and wellness coaching.”
Acupuncture with Trish has been an amazing experience that has transformed my life in a few key ways. Our conversations and the acupuncture itself has helped me re-focus my attention on my body, which I had neglected and mistreated for years. It helped me make a number of lifestyle changes that have led to a better quality of life: doing yoga again, quitting a draining community board, scheduling time for reflection, better eating and sleeping habits. The way Trish uses acupuncture and philosophy behind it has also helped me re-frame difficult situations in my life and allowed me see them in a more positive, forgiving light. And acupuncture has increased my energy and ability to focus — especially during the winter months when my energy is usually very low.”
I have been in treatment with Trish Twiford since May 2009 (and the journey continues!). In my treatments with Trish I am learning more than I ever imagined that I could or would from acupuncture. She has been a vehicle in helping me understand that treatment is about aiding my physical body in operating in its optimal state – supporting me in achieving day-to-day goals, dreams and healing. She has been my teacher, helping me to practice ‘living in the now’, self observation and using empowering language. The treatment plan that Trish is implementing for me as a unique individual and body provide a safe place for me to practice creating a balanced and fulfilling life.”
I initially sought out acupuncture to alleviate a specific pain in my abdomen. However, I soon realized the power of acupuncture was greatly beyond that of a pain killer or temporary bandage. Through the help of Trish, I have quickly discovered that my body as a whole was capable of great healing when it was not interrupted, and instead supported, by my mind. To make this possible, my sessions at with Trish include well-tuned acupuncture treatments, nutrition advice, thoughts on self-reflection and relationships, and a professional yet compassionate atmosphere. It is rare to find such an experience that offers relief, healing, and personal growth. I am most grateful.”
Trish is an amazing and gifted healer. You feel better just being around her. She is very skilled as well as intuitive. She has helped me with various conditions over the years. I highly recommend her.”
Trish Twiford has been my acupuncturist since 2010 and I have remained a patient for over two years. Throughout this time, she has treated my blood sugar levels, gall stones, urinary tract issues, and hormonal issues with huge success. I am a physically active person, so additionally Trish has treated numerous injuries since we met, effectively managing my pain through the use of her amazing skill as an acupuncturist. I highly recommend Trish and cannot imagine discontinuing my treatment program. What is not to love? Reduction of medication, reduction of pain and overall feeling of wellness has been mine to enjoy since joining her client list. Thank you Trish!”
Trish Twiford provides more than just acupuncture, she uses a holistic approach to overall health that has helped me tremendously. Trish has given me healthy strategies that help prolong the wonderful effects of my treatments and I have incorporated these into daily habits. I look forward to every treatment! “

Through acupuncture treatment, Trish creates the opportunity to reflect and get present to my mood, actions and experiences of the past few weeks, and notice how my body has responded. I have grown in my understanding of how responsive, intuitive and connected my body and mind are and that has helped me in my everyday life so often. My treatments are also the most peaceful and nurturing moments of the week.”
Trish is a knowledgeable, gentle and engaged acupuncturist. She listens closely to spoken words and seems even more skilled at “listening” to my body, frequently telling me things about my system which she has learned by keen observation. Her treatments have proven very beneficial to me in lowering stress responses and relieving pain.”
I had been to several different doctors over the years with no relief. Within moments of meeting Trish, and reviewing my history and symptoms, she knew my problem. I’m so grateful she was able to help me! Trish treats me as a whole person, and not simply as a group of symptoms. I recommend Trish to friends and family frequently. She is exceptional!”
