“I was taking weekly hikes in the Gorge training for a trip to the Grand Canyon and started experiencing severe back pain and stiffness. I had to stop doing hikes with any elevation gain due to the severe pain and my training regimen was interrupted. The first session with Emily was miraculous - the intense pain and stiffness was gone. It took only four more sessions to return to normal. Now I’m up on Mt. Hood hiking in elevation and feeling great. Emily is no-nonsense, skilled, and very caring.”
"I have had chronic neck pain for the last several years and have tried a lot of different things. Emily was able to alleviate most of my pain in just one visit. Seeing her regularly has made me feel better and have less pain that I have in years. She is insightful, makes great connections and is in general just a wonderful human. I highly recommend her and her practice."
"I am professional singer and came to Emily during a long show run. Her sessions identified "trouble" spots where I was carrying tension as a direct result of performance practice, and in reducing both inflammation and tension her acupuncture allowed me greater freedom to sing and act fully."
"Emily Bartha is a rare combination of common sense, technical acumen and intuitive wisdom that is rare even in Portland's abundant health care community. Her passion and deep understanding of acupuncture and human health sings true in her treatments. If you're lucky enough to get on her schedule you know you are in excellent hands."
“Emily is a great acupuncturist. Very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. She understands the systems of the body very well and helps you get to the root of the problem, rather than just focus on the symptoms.”
"I received excellent care from Emily during my pregnancy. She knew exactly what points were recommended for a woman during that time and her demeanor was so calm and soothing it helped this anxious mom-to-be tremendously.”
"I highly recommend visiting Turning Pointe Acupuncture for an acupuncture or cupping session. Emily has helped me with chronic neck pain and other ongoing injuries. She is professional, personable, and easy to communicate with about different ailments going on with my body. I always leave an acupuncture session feeling better than when I arrived!"
