"I haven't suffered from allergies since you treated me and gave me the herbs. Thank you so much! I'm kinda in shock. I know acupuncture works but I've never been able to be outside in June (I'm a little itchy in the eyes today, but I've been outside all day)."
"Thank you!! Thank you!! The aching chronic pain is still gone. You interrupted the pain cycle and my muscles of entire body are becoming the most relaxed they've been all week. You brought me hope and positive experience that my soul needed."
"Yumiko is magical, magnificent, awesome and heroic."
"Yumiko is a skilled Acupuncturist and herbalist. Her knowledge and techniques have led to a significant decrease in pain after my automobile accident last year. I know that whenever I am not feeling well, whether allergies, a headache, or back pain, Yumiko can treat me and I will leave feeling rejuvenated. Thanks, Yumiko!"

"A sensitive & dedicated healer!"
"Yumiko is a delightful person and a wonderful practitioner. This is my first acupuncture experience and it has been delightful. She told me just what to expect and her touch is very gentle. I am amazed at how effective acupuncture has been for easing my pain. Thanks Yumiko!"
"I feel very fortunate that I found Yumiko's name on the web page of my insurance. I have had pain in my lower right side for over two months. It keeps reappearing after I sit a long time or after I get up
in the morning. After three treatments I feel much less pain. In fact, for the past three days there has been no pain. Therefore, I am very grateful for the treatments Yumiko has given me. I am also impressed by and appreciative of her professional attitude, the thoroughness of her diagnoses, the amount of thought and research she devotes to me, and the length of time she gives me in our consultations. At my second consultation she gave evidence of the research she had done on other health concerns I have such as problems with my kidney and prostrate, and how in my second and third treatments she adjusted my treatment based on her extensive research about these particular health issues. I highly recommend Yumiko Freeman. She is a very knowledgeable, professional, caring, and articulate acupuncturist and holistic medical practitioner. Her abilities to understand concerns about my health, to respond to them based on her extensive knowledge and experience and after doing research, and to communicate her knowledge to me very clearly are very impressive. Her treatment room is also very clean and pleasant, and its atmosphere enhances the treatments she gives me.
"Best acupuncturist in town: kind, thoughtful, and effective!"
"I have chosen to receive acupuncture for the last 40 years as a primary mode of care. It is very important for me to find a practitioner who knows what they are doing and also expresses care and has a great spirit. I have found this combo in Yumiko. I recommend her to anyone who needs special gentle yet effective work.

"Yumiko is Awesome! She really cares about her patients and she really knows what she is doing. She treats my son who is almost 3 and my daughter who is an infant. They love her! She is really patient and has made a huge difference in our lives. My kids have allergies (food/enviornmental) until we met Yumiko we hadn't been able to find any relief for them. I am very thankful that we found her! I highly recommend her to anyone who really wants to be well.
"I have been going to Yumiko for several months to relieve back and thigh pain caused by osteoarthritis and the resulting problems. After treatment, which has included a nice massage as well as the needles I feel much improved. My problems have no real cure due to my age (69) but visiting her is a great benefit. She is a very nice person who really cares."
"Yumiko is fantastic. She has been treating my ten year old regularly for anxiety and stress, has made an incredibly positive impact in my son's life. She communicates very well (not easy to do with children), he feels heard and has helped him learn how to be proactive in building healthy stress management routines."
"I have gone to see Yumiko several times for acupuncture now. The first few times I went I had a throbbing headache before I got there. It went away by the end of my treatment. She is paying attention to my personal health picture and I feel progressively improved over time. She takes the time to listen and ask questions at the beginning of every appointment. She is considerate and will explain if you have questions. Overall I love going to get treatment from Yumiko because she makes me feel very comfortable and I feel better after every treatment."
"Yumiko has helped me with some significant back problems. Her approach is direct and simple. I highly recommend her."
"Yumiko is a sensitive and caring healer who has helped my body heal on many levels. I've enjoyed every treatment I've had with her and look for ward to to the next !"
"I was under Yumiko Freeman's care for approximately 8 months, and I found her acupuncture treatments and medical intuition outstanding. I have been to many alternative care practitioners over the years, and will sorely miss Yumiko's combination of expertise, instincts, and unsurpassed compassion and attention to detail in treating me as she transitions out of the Portland metro area. Working with Yumiko is a privilege!"
"Yumiko's personal demeanor and spirit immediately put me at ease. Throughout the year I went to her, my health and well-being steadily improved. This was not just because of the treatments, but Yumiko became a great friend who listened intently and I always felt better every time I visited. I believe that when one endears that, true healing can begin. Thank you so much for making a difference and I am going to miss her here in Portland."
"I've had the good fortune of being a patient of Yumiko's during her entire internship at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. From the beginning, I found her to be compassionate, intuitive, and bright. It has been my pleasure to witness her growth into a top notch practitioner."
"My husband suggested acupuncture may be helpful for my tendency for being cold. Although I was initially skeptical, I was quickly impressed by the results. After each session I felt fantastically warm and as though the blood had been well circulated throughout my body. Yumiko was so friendly and helped to put me at ease about the entire process."
