“I truly believe that it’s because of acupuncture with you that I am not taking the seven medications that my doctor prescribed.”
~Jeffrey Liggett, Santa Rosa


“My heart specialist was amazed at the drop of my blood pressure (over 40 mm) and said that there’s no need for the medication now. I appreciate what you did and your concern. The treatments helped me in many ways and I credit you for a huge part of my success.”
~Don Elsbree, Healdsburg


“I have been going regularly to Saxena Clinic for over a year now.  I had been skeptical of the benefits of acupuncture because it can’t be easily explained as opposed to traditional Western medicine, which seems to be based upon the precept of combating ailments, usually with drugs, after they occur, rather than prevention through maintenance of a healthy body.  I originally started out of curiosity with the community treatment involving five needles in each ear.  The results were amazing, almost as though I were on some sort of natural high.  I then graduated to hour-long treatments.  Lorelle conducts a complete medical history interview and will tailor her treatments to address a variety of physical and emotional ailments that her patients may want to address.  She also respects Western medicine and I appreciate her extensive professional knowledge and experience.

About 16 months ago I had a bad mountain biking accident and had little success over the following couple of months in going to physical therapists recommended by my HMO. After a month or so of following a regimen prescribed by Lorelle that was based around acupuncture treatments, I underwent a marked improvement, and credit her treatments with my rapid healing.  I typically have her treat me for optimization of my immune system and can attest to not having a bout of cold or flu in over a year.  After a session, I feel ‘centered.’  I highly recommend both the practice and the practitioner.”
~Paul Rowan, Santa Rosa


“I don’t feel any more like I’m all twisted up at my core…It felt so good to talk to someone who just immediately ‘got’ me.”
~Shannon Magner, Santa Rosa


“Lorelle at the Saxena Clinic is wonderful! She is very professional and her clinic setting is very peaceful – a great environment for relaxing. During my private visit she gave me personalized attention and really tried to assess my overall health so that she could give me the best treatment suited to my needs. I came to her with a such a stiff neck that I couldn’t even turn it without stabbing pain. When I left I felt very relaxed, and was back to 100% within a couple days. I’ve also participated in her community clinics where she treats you at the same time as a few other people. She puts these 5 little tiny needles in your ear and they have amazing effects! I left feeling happy, relaxed, and even slept better for a few days. I’ve gone to three appointments so far and will be going back soon! Definitely a great overall experience.‎”
~Angie Mantele, Santa Rosa


“Lorelle provides such quality service with a warm and friendly atmosphere; plus she really helped soothe and massage my shoulder injury. I recommend her highly!”
~Ms. Kitty MaulHER #9 (Monique Evans) Resurrection Roller Derby


“Wow, I’ve been to several different acupuncturists before, and Lorelle was the first one who seemed to generally care about my well being. She was extremely professional and did a very thorough assessment of my ailments. I also felt like she genuinely loves Traditional Chinese Medicine. So her competency, compassion, and enthusiasm really showed through. She also seemed to be an educator, because she helped me to understand exactly what kind of herbal treatment she was prescribing and how it was going to help. It sure beats going to a western doctor that usually has less than 5 minutes to talk to you, writes you a prescription that somehow magically fixes you (sometimes it doesn’t), then shoos you out the door. I really appreciate the time she took to give me the best care possible. The clinic itself was a modern, clean, comfortable, and peaceful environment. It really helped me to relax. Overall, I’ve never had as great of an experience with eastern medicine as I had here. I’m definitely going back!”
~Jennica Goo, Mountain View


“This is the first day I’ve had completely free of leg pain in two years.”
~Nick Fusco, 23, personal trainer and military veteran, Santa Rosa, the day after his fourth acupuncture session


“Lorelle spent twenty minutes listening to my history and what i was hoping to achieve. It was so refreshing to have a health care provider spending so much time assessing my ailment. During the treatment she answered all my questions and the needles did not even hurt all that much. I have had so many issues with my sinuses and spent a lot of money on western doctors, none of which came close to the results i received from the Saxena Clinic. I am so pleased with treatment I am going back in 6 weeks.‎”
~Raquel Rhoads, Mountain View


“I think your acupuncture treatments are magic and you truly see your patients as I have felt so good and empowered and solid.  You’re awesome!  Thanks!” -S.M.


“I avoided acupuncture because I am very afraid of needles and also thought that acupuncture would be painful. When I was treated by Lorelle, I had a very pleasant experience, and I didn’t think about the needles because I never felt them! Now all I have to do is just relax and enjoy…”
~Gale Peck, Business Owner, Santa Rosa


“I am an athlete who first came to the Saxena Clinic with severe sciatic pain that made it difficult to walk, much less play sports.  Eight sessions later, the sciatica is pretty much gone, I am able to walk without pain, and I plan to return to playing softball within a couple of months.”
~Randall Stuart, 62, Santa Rosa


“I think you are a true healer who cares deeply about your patients.  You spent an incredible amount of time getting to know me and my lifestyle so that you could better help me heal. I love how you read my pulse each visit before a treatment! At a recent visit, I was definitely coming down with something when I came in, but by the time I left your office I was already on the mend…so I never actually got sick!”
~Amie Breeze, former mayor of Rohnert Park, owner of Sebastopol Boot Camp


“I’ve seen [Lorelle] about five times now over the course of a month and a half and have only had one migraine since starting with her. I consider going from two headaches a week to one a month a small victory, don’t you?”
~excerpted from “my journey to eastern medicine,” by Jenna Weber, author of Eat Live Run, Santa Rosa. Click here to read the full post about Jenna’s experience with migraines and acupuncture at the Saxena Clinic.


“Lorelle Saxena has had a huge impact on my physical health.  I initially came to her to get treatment on my shoulder (which is better than it has been in almost 9 months).  However, I continue to come to her for ongoing treatment for knee and foot issues and for ‘lung health’ which is exceedingly valuable as a professional trainer and speaker.  Her individual approach means more focus on the patient and getting results which is VERY important to me.”
~Trey McAlister, Santa Rosa


“(You) definitely need to see Lorelle. She is kind, knowledgeable and thorough. Acupuncture has helped me with numerous nagging ailments of perimenopause as well has aided in my recovery from rigorous work outs. Lorelle provided key treatments going into the Napa Valley Full Marathon which enabled me to earn my Boston Qualifying time. Thanks Lorelle!”
~Marie Maiolo Muchow, Santa Rosa


“Lorelle is a fabulous acupuncturist! She is very intelligent and asks great questions before she begins treatment. She makes the entire experience abou YOU. A true professional.”

~Bret Menze, Santa Rosa


“Acupuncture with Lorelle puts the pain in my neck and shoulders that I’ve had ever since my spine was fused into the background. Before acupuncture that pain completely limited my mobility. With the addition of the acupressure that Lorelle does as part of my session I am closer to pain free than I’ve ever been.”

~Bill, Santa Rosa
