I highly recommend Brightness Health and Artashes Mirzatuny. I started working with Artashes about a year ago, when I was suffering from tendinitis in my shoulder. As an avid swimmer, it's a recurring injury that I deal with, even after completing multiple attempts at PT and chiropractic care. Artashes worked his magic using acupuncture and cupping. I noticed an improvement almost immediately, and then after a few weekly sessions, I was not feeling any pain, even during my swimming workouts. Since I experienced much success with my shoulder pain, I decided to move our focus to chronic lower back pain that I have dealt with for years. Artashes did a thorough review of my symptoms and performed acupuncture and cupping. Since this was chronic back pain I had been dealing with for years, the improvement was slower and more gradual, but I still noticed improvement after each weekly session. After my symptoms improved in both my shoulder and lower back, I continued to go to Artashes for "maintenance" and to stay on top of any mild pain that may reappear after improper lifting, posture or form, and this has also been a great practice in self-care. I highly recommend Artashes at Brightness Health for any of your pain relief and body wellness needs.

After I injured my knee last year, Arty has been a tremendous help for me to get back to a normal life. He uses a method called "Electro Acupuncture" on my knee to ease my pain and help my blood to circulate better deep in my knee. Through the needles, the electricity can reach deep in my muscle tissue. It is a trip to feel and witness my knee muscle is vibrating while he treats me with this method! I wish I could explain more in words better. Anyways, I have been treated with Physical Therapy to recover from my injury for a while. Till I started seeing Arty, my recovery was very slow and not noticeable. As soon as I started combining Physical Therapy and his electro acupuncture, my knee pain level went down drastically, and slowly but surely I was able to get back to my normal life without a cane. I can't thank him enough!

I've seen Arty to treat my back pain and insomnia, and there has been noone more intuitive and gentle. I've always been afraid of needles and of acupuncture, but he was patient, explaining each step along the way and checking on me frequently. He has a very soothing voice and intuitive bedside manner. It felt truly tailored for my specific needs. This has helped regulate my sleep as well as take care of backpain from computer work. His treatments need not replace your regular doctor's visits, but Chinese medicine can be a very helpful supplement. It can be confusing but with someone like Arty as your guide, the benefits can be endless!

Was lucky to get a drop-in appointment last minute, after experiencing serious tightness in my lower back, hips and Piriformis; I work producing events and staging, so my work involves lots of heavy lifting. First time getting acupuncture and cupping, so didn't really know what to expect, but Arty asked me questions about my overall health and habits, then proceeded right to work. Very professional and friendly throughout the 45 minute session. I could sense his knowledge of physiology is deep. Felt a significant improvement in my symptoms, and only got better the next day. Would definitely return!

Arty is absolutely wonderful at what he does! I've gone to see him for a whole variety of common aches and pains, as well as some more broad needs around emotional well being and health. I always leave feeling more grounded, strong, and calm. He really listens... hearing not only the symptoms I would describe but also intuiting more than that. For example, one time I described tension in my neck and he actually did cupping on my lower back that helped tremendously! It's awesome to have a practitioner with so much knowledge and care for his patients!

I am a Massage Therapist who see's Arty 1-2 times a month. As a fellow bodyworker I seek out other Alternative health practitioners that I resonate with. He takes the time to listen to me before each session in order to apply the proper Acupuncture & Cupping points. I leave feeling elevated and alleviated of stress, tension, and pain that I may have come in with. I highly recommend giving yourself the gift of his one of a kind treatment!

I've worked with Arty since he was a TCM student and can't say enough good things about him. He is quite gifted in his bodywork and his herb treatment techniques. Arty hears my symptoms and then he hears me! Truly listens to my concerns and then treats me with a sweet kindness and strong conviction that is hard to find. Every time I visit his office I leave feeling strong in my body.

I have been seeing Arty for back pain and anxiety and I have had an incredibly positive experience. It being my first acupuncture experience, he was gentle and thoughtful. I felt comfortable the entire time and he was very attentive and calming. I felt immediate relief and have always looked forward to my next treatment.

As a veteran Trainer dealing with a high degree of physical stress and muscle soreness, Arty has helped me in very specific ways multiple times. His knowledge of his craft and implementation is spot on, and really blasted my pain away. I'll definitely be going back to him for future ailments!

That was the finest cupping I've ever received. A one-two-three punch of Chinese Medicine.
