"AOMA is a blessing to the Austin community.  I have been going to AOMA for almost 8 years for a variety of medical issues.  The first time I ever tried acupuncture was at AOMA for panic attacks.  After only 3 treatments my heart palpitations went away and I have never had a problem since.  From then on I was sold!  I love the staff and have enjoyed meeting a variety of students for years now--sometimes even following students as they open their own practices.  AOMA is amazing also for those who do not have health insurance since acupuncture is so effective for common ailments that can cost a fortune in a regular Western doctor's office.  The herbs prescribed have always helped and cost a fraction of a pharmaceutical drug.  Acupuncture is incredible and AOMA does a great job teaching its students."  ~ SW (AOMA Patient)
