“My sinuses had plagued me all of my adult life (30+ years).  I had been prescribed antibiotics so many times I wished I had bought stock in the pharmaceutical industry. I was facing surgery. Instead I decided to seek your help. You advised that the antibiotics and steroids would always be there and instead recommended acupuncture, Chinese herbs and dietary changes. I began a twice a week regimen of acupuncture which was like a relaxing siesta!  I not only kept my sinus problems at bay, but also cut the incidence of migraine headaches I suffered by 80% and eliminated the nighttime stomach discomfort I had suffered. I still need the occasional acupuncture treatment. However, I have not had antibiotic treatment for my sinuses in two years, truly a miracle.” — Rebecca M.

“I came to Island Acupuncture with a reoccurring vestibular disorder causing vertigo and a lack of awareness and within 2 week my symptoms were dramatically reduced. I didn’t believe in acupuncture before but Dr. Peled proved to me that surgery and western medicine are not the only solutions to physical illnesses.” — John F.

We are now 7 months pregnant with our first child and so excited!” — Jim and Kristin Rinehart

“I am a Coronado resident that lives abroad. I needed acupuncture treatment on short notice when I was home during the holidays. I received really quick feedback and helpful service on the phone, which was highly valued since other acupuncturists were not working at this time. I was able to come in on the same day, late afternoon and received treatment until 6 pm, which lasted over 90 minutes. It was very professional service and Dr. Gila understood my problem, as she has worked previously with injured endurance athletes. I will certainly keep her number on my speed dial and call her up again when I need help!” — Scott Cole, Ph.D., EnviroEconomics Sweden Consultancy

The acupuncture treatment is simply a series of taps with small needles. Dr. Gila is highly skilled and experienced in her technique and is sensitive to any slight discomfort one may feel. I have experienced radical improvement in my pain and no longer have to use any prescription pain medication. She has opened my eyes to the more holistic approach of taking care of my own health and wellness using more natural methods.” — Ann W.
