Dr. Josh Hanson is a vital component of my wellness program. His technique, equipment and setting are all superb and exactly as I think acupuncture should be practiced (during a pandemic!!) in our busy, urban era. I have recommended him to friends and family and suggest you give him an opportunity to help you, too!

Dr. Hanson is an amazing orthopedic and functional medicine acupuncture physician. Dr. Hanson ‘s medical orthopedic knowledge is high level. He takes his time diagnosing, ensures he properly assesses the imbalances and utilizes precise Acupuncture, Trigger and Muscle Motor Points. The treatments are virtually painless and he explains the process of acupuncture/healing well. The electro-acupuncture/estim treatments do very well for my lower back pain.

Dr. Hanson is a great medical professional that is very comforting and proficient in letting patients know what the process is and how it works. The treatments have been helping with significantly noticeable changes. I should have gotten into acupuncture sooner but glad I found this center when I did!
