James is truly a professional in what he does, and provides excellent customer service. His office is clean and very comfortable for treatments. I highly recommend Jova Acupuncture!"

  • "I have been going to Jova for about 4 months for a shoulder injury as well as overall well-being. James is extraordinarily professional, knowledgable and kind. I had have acupuncture in the past with others, and can say that James is by far the best I have experienced. Going in for a treatment feels like a zen experience, and I look forward to my visits. Afterwards I always feel great and have had very positive results with the injury. Highly recommend!"
