"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."
"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."
