Bell’s Palsy, a sudden weakness in facial muscles, can disrupt your daily activities and self-confidence. We provide therapeutic strategies in the initial months to support facial nerve recovery and help you regain normal function.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can make everyday tasks challenging due to hand and wrist pain. Our treatment approach aims to alleviate these symptoms, improve hand function, and mitigate nerve damage.

When neuropathy occurs without a clear cause, it can be disconcerting. Our holistic approach aims to manage symptoms and support overall neurological health, even when the underlying cause is unknown.

The aftermath of a concussion can be marked by persistent headaches, dizziness, and cognitive issues. We provide supportive therapies that aim to manage post-concussion symptoms and promote brain health.

Sciatica can be debilitating, causing severe lower back and leg pain. Our treatment strategy seeks to alleviate this pain and improve spinal health, allowing you to return to your daily activities with less discomfort.

I have been seeing Gina for about two year now and when I first started with her I was have anywhere from 2 to 3 migraines a month. Once I started my treatment Gina got me into such a great place that I was maybe having one migraine a month if even that. With her treatments I was in such a great spot. Then once I found out I was pregnant I started getting bad migraines again and with being limited on what I was able to take nothing was working for me. Gina came to the rescue. I started seeing her once a week and she gave me some tacks to use in between visits if I started to have a bad headache/migraine. She properly showed me where I could place the tacks and they have been a life saver. Tylenol wasn’t working for me but ever since I started using the tacks I haven’t had to use Tylenol. Thank you Gina for everything you have done!

I decided to seek out acupuncture to treat a concussion after having pretty bad migraines and vestibular issues. Within a month of acupuncture and traditional pt, I’ve been cleared by my concussion doc and have no symptoms. However, what has really made me fall in love with Acupuncture of Columbia has been its affect on my mental health. I’ve had anxiety for years and have seen the most dramatic reduction in my anxiety after receiving acupuncture than any other treatment. The team is incredibly welcoming and Gina’s energy is so positive and bright; I came away from my initial consultation feeling excited and as though I had made a friend.

Gina has been treating my migraines for several years and they have improved greatly. The frequency of my migraines has diminished and continues to do so. I now go monthly for a maintenance session. Gina and her staff are wonderful. Trying acupuncture and being treated by Gina was the best decision I made.

Since I was very young I have battled migraines. It finally got so bad that I was averaging 3 debilitating migraines a week. I would sit under my desk at work with the lights out and try not to cry or throw up. I decided to start seeing Gina after doctors, MRIs, neurologists, allergists, chiropractors and all the meds never worked. My only regret is that I didn’t go to her sooner!!! Finally in my 30’s after 20+ years of battling migraines, acupuncture has gotten me down to less than 5 A YEAR! Gina has been life changing for me! And it’s also great that she happens to be the sweetest person in the world too!

I had a wonderful experience with Acupuncture of Columbia. I was in Columbia because a family member was having a medical procedure and started having severe pain in my hip/back/sciatica. They were able to get me in super fast and helped me so much. I super appreciated that they would see me knowing that I wouldn’t be a long term client due to actually living far away! Thank you, Gina! You are amazing! Everyone was so friendly and made me feel so welcome and comfortable!

I started seeing Gina in February while undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Acupuncture has made my neuropathy and chemo induced nausea much more tolerable. It’s also helped with stress and insomnia from the steroids I’m taking with treatment.

Gina is simply wonderful. She helped me manage migraines and stress through a difficult period of time and I could feel the effects of my sessions immediately. Her space is gorgeous and calming and I always look forward to spending an hour of zen there!

Worked like a miracle on my headaches and migraine's. I have had 2 or 3 breakthrough migraines in 6 months since I started treatment. Before this- I’d have at least 1 headache a week and at least 2 or 3 migraines a month. Gina and her staff are so friendly, professional and make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

I have been seeing Gina with Acupuncture of Columbia for several years. I started going for headaches. Now I go see her a lot of different things. She is very kind and listens to me. Sam and Marisa, her staff, are exceptionally friendly and welcoming. I enjoy my visits and recommend them for all your needs.

I have been going to Acupuncture of Columbia for several months and have seen a difference in my body. Today I went in with a terrible migraine and Gina was so kind and caring. She worked her magic with her placement of the needles and I walked out feeling like a new woman! The migraine was gone and I couldn’t be more grateful!

Shingles and the nerve pain that can follow (PHN) - is there any real hope for improvement? Yes! Acupuncture works and there are medical studies that prove it. I came to Gina a month after being diagnosed with shingles. The pain meds from doctors had not lessened my pain at all and they came with unwanted side effects. I could not stand for anything to touch my skin where the pain was - not my clothes, not the bedding, not even a loose hair that had fallen out of my head. They all caused intense pain. When I first started treatments here, the pain was horrible. Now at the end of my treatments, I feel like 98% of my pain is gone (and all I did was lie on a soft, warm table and almost dose off!). If you’ve got PHN, you’ve got to come see Gina. Don’t wait because that can make your recovery take longer and be more expensive. Gina is genuine and remembers conversations she has with you and will ask about those things/people at your next visit. Gina is encouraging and always asking how you're doing so she can better decide how to treat you. Everyone here calls you by name, too. You'll quickly feel like you're among friends!

I started with Gina due to neuropathy where I could not feel my feet which made walking difficult. Over the course of about the last 8 months of treatment I have regained sensation with only a slight tingling remaining. It is great to be able to know where my feet are without having to consciously look down to visualize my feet. Thanks for the great outcome!
