Masako is a kind, gentle and extremely skilled practitioner! She has gone to great length to master not only Shiatsu and Acupuncture, but also incorporates Nutrition Response Testing and other modalities to help her patients achieve optimal health and healing. Additionally, her facial rejuvenation acupuncture is not only instantly visibly rejuvenating but also energizing.

Before I had lots of aches and pains. My food cravings were out of control. I was unable to focus with fitful sleep.

Now, I feel amazing. Better than I’ve felt in years. Aches and pains are gone! Energy level is very high. Food and diet are healthy. I feel GREAT. I sleep well at night and awake refreshed. Masako is a careful, kind and caring practitioner who works with you to help you feel your best.

I came to see Masako because I felt sick, worn out, couldn’t concentrate, couldn’t lose weight and generally felt in bad shape in my body.

After one month of seeing Masako and taking the supplements she found that I needed and following her advice for how to eat, I feel more energy, less bloating, better concentration, no cravings for bad foods. In 4 weeks, I have lost 5 pounds. I recommended Nutritional Response Testing for anyone that feels the way I did!

I selected a combined acupuncture and Purification Program with the hope that I could become free from nicotine addiction. Guided by Masako’s knowledge of nutrition, the combination program gave me a jump-start into a place of well-being and sustained energy that I had never experienced. After a week on the program, I no longer needed the nicotine. Even my morning cup of strong coffee wasn’t needed. I am grateful to Masako’s for her guidance in helping me reach my goal and for providing alternative health care that gives positive results.

I am not sure how much weight I have lost, but going off the way I look i would say at least 10 or more pounds. … I feel great and have tons of new energy. I have enjoyed the Purification program very much.

Masako is an excellent and kind practitioner using a holistic approach in dealing with your health and wellness challenges. Her experience and expertise in multiple healing modalities really makes a huge difference in improving your overall health- I have been seeing her for two months now due to a chronic condition that was causing me a lot of distress, and have experienced near-immediate and significant relief with a combination of nutrition and acupuncture therapy. I look forward to each of our sessions and am very grateful to have been introduced to Masako through a friend. Highly recommended.

In desperation with a recommendation from a friend I went to see Masako. Though new to acupuncture and highly skeptical, I began having regular visits and was amazed when I began seeing a dramatic improvement to my specific complaints. Masako’s patience and reassuring manner, coupled with her professionalism and determination to help me, proved successful far beyond my expectations. I strongly recommend her services to anyone experiencing pain. I have never had acupuncture before this event and I am 51.”

Joe's Healing Journey 

My wife Lisa started seeing Masako Wada. She has been suffering from a thyroid condition for the last 30 years. She has also been suffering from allergies. Lisa has seen many Physicians concerning her thyroid, and not a one of them has been able to get her numbers under control. In fact, some have given her more than the maximum legal doses of Synthroid, with no results. After just a few months of seeing Masako, Lisa’s Thyroid numbers are back to normal for the first time in 30 years. She is starting to lose weight, and no longer takes Thyroid meds of any kind. Her allergies have improved significantly. Lisa had such great results, I decided to go see Masako myself and give her a real challenge!
I have been on Nexium for GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease) for almost 17 years. I have tried to wean myself off several times, but have such terrible stomach pains within a week, I have had to get right back on it. My allergies have been debilitating over the last 20 years. There have been days that I could not leave the house because of them. My stomach problems along with a lack of all of my intestines has caused me such digestive issues, that I have been miserable for years. I have been taking 2 different blood pressure meds as the Cardiologist wanted to keep it low as possible due to the Mitral Valve replacement I had 4 years ago.
During the first few visits with Masako, she suspected that I was also “Pre-Diabetic”. My blood sugar was borderline, and I was starting to have numbness in my toes and pain in my feet. Not a big surprise, as you know I drank a lot of Coke and my sweets intake was considerable. I even had candy bars stashed in my night stand. She also determined that I had Gout (which I knew). My liver was toxic and one of my kidneys was not functioning well. I have been seeing Masako once a week for about 2 1/2 months now. After seeing her for 3 weeks, I was completely off of the Nexium with no side effects! I am now completely off of all medications including blood pressure meds. I have lost over 30 pounds in 2 1/2 months! People who have not seen me in a while almost don’t recognize me. My Cholesterol is great, and blood sugar is down to a much more reasonable level. Uric acids are dropping and all indicators across the board are improving. Again, she has treated me with Whole Food Supplements and a severe change in diet.
I have cut 90% of the sugar from my diet. I still get some through fruits and vegetables. I no longer drink Coke or sodas of any kind. I have cut back on red meats ( the meat we do eat is usually bison or some other grass fed meat with no antibiotics.) We drink a Kale smoothie for breakfast every morning with a bit of protein powder from Standard Process, and a little fish oil in it. We eat lots of vegetables (most of them grown by us) and have cut out all bread and grains of any sort. We do eat a small amount of rice on occasion. Processed foods have become a thing of the past. With all of the research I have done, it has become evident to me that I was being poisoned through our food supply since I was a small child. We have been marketed to through our televisions and grocery aisles, to the point where we have been programmed to eat hundreds of pounds of sugar a year, as well as high fructose corn syrup, Wheat (which contains Glyphosate-the main ingredient in round up and also agent orange) and many other processed foods which contain a variety of synthetic garbage which ranges from being generally unhealthy to directly causing cancer.
In summation, I have never been healthier than I am right now. I have more energy and work harder than anyone I know. I could die tomorrow, but I will die feeling so much better than I have for the last 40 years. I really did not realize how sluggish I had become from taking all the antihistamines, prescription meds and from eating bad food. I am preaching to the world about a life change, that should have happened to me long ago. I may not have been ready for this years ago, but finally my awareness and education, along with my poor health has brought me to a point of redemption.
