Best Acupuncturist in the City

"I have been seeing Adrienne for six years. I have endometriosis and fertility issues. I have learned that acupuncture is a must in my life. I have seen other acupuncturists at the more specialized facilities, but Adrienne seems to know better than others. I travel from Cloverdale to see her because she is that good. She's also very kind and super informed on nutrition and herbs. I would recommend her to anyone!"

Highly Recommend

"What a wonderful find!! Dr. Adrienne Chan is an amazing practitioner and all-round lovely person. I've had acupuncture for many years at other clinics, but this is entirely on another level. Had 1 treatment and immediately booked the package - I so look forward to each relaxing treatment. It's like a spa, with health benefits. Thank you Dr. Chan!"

Lifetime Client

"It's maybe about my third year seeing Adrienne now, and all I can say is wow! She's very thorough in trying to assess your health issues and what you'd like to work on. I'm always excited for my next session with Dr. Chan, because I know that I'm one step closer in achieving my health goals toward wellness."

Hobbled In and Walked Out

"I had a pinched nerve in my lower back and could barely move without severe pain. I contacted Dr. Adrienne Chan at Glow and although fully booked squeezed me in to come and see her that day. After my treatment, I was still stiff and sore but had a lot more movement and flexibility. I made a follow-up appointment and came out almost fully recovered. I am very confident in Dr. Chan's abilities and have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for relief through acupuncture."
