Josh is an excellent representative of an integrative practitioner, able to provide excellent and timely acupuncture and TCM treatments, as well connecting those treatments with the patient’s overall health picture (to optimize wellness.)
— Robert Bonakdar, M.D., author of The H.E.R.B.A.L. Guide
I highly recommend acupuncture treatments from Josh Eha because he honors and holds true to the holistic principles of traditional Chinese medicine.

He is able to quickly and successfully treat a wide range of conditions including acute and chronic pain; emotional disturbances including stress, anxiety, and insomnia; cardiac conditions including arrhythmias; respiratory conditions including asthma; hormonal imbalances including menopausal symptoms; and immunological deficiencies, helping to boost immunity.

I confidently refer my patients to him, and they invariably give him high praise.
— Raneth Heng, M.D.
Josh’s clinical approach is contemplative, considerate and gentle. It is clear that he does more than listen to a patient, he seeks to fully understand. His work blends the technical and the profound, science and art.

Perhaps Josh’s most important and unique attribute, however, is his ability to understand the as yet unarticulated connections between healing paradigms such as biomedicine and traditional Chinese medicine. This is the skill of a true integrative practitioner and the foundation for truly expansive and synergistic healing work.
Collaborating with Josh to construct a patient’s treatment plan leaves me feeling confident that we are setting the standard for high quality individualized care.
— Nathan Daley, M.D.

As part of our sports medicine team, we found that the effectiveness of his treatments allowed our student-athletes to return to full activity much quicker with less reoccurrence of injury. His expertise in sports injuries spans all injuries from acute ankle sprains to chronic low back pain. Josh Eha was an important part of our sports medicine team.
— Kevin Messey, ATC, CSCS, CES
Josh Eha has my highest recommendation. He consistently helps my patients decrease pain and improve functioning. His knowledge and skills are at the highest level. I trust Josh with my own friends and family.

Patient Testimonials

Cervical Surgery Candidate

Four years ago I was told that I needed neck surgery by 2 neurosurgeons. An injury had left 2 disks bulging in my neck and the displacement caused excruciating nerve pressure. Prior to surgery, a renowned cardiologist suggested that I try her personal acupuncturist. I had thought acupuncture was pure quackery at the time, but I had nothing to loose. I couldn’t move my neck. I couldn’t bend down or lower my head in any way and for 6 weeks I had hardly slept. There was numbness down my arm and leg and in my fingers. After 45 minutes of acupuncture, I was able to move my neck as though nothing had ever happened! I could pick things up off the floor and do everything I had been able to do prior to my accident. I was in absolute shock. I canceled my surgery right away. I know that my neck will always be prone to injury or soreness due to my prior accident but Josh Eha taught me how to feel and know the signs to avoid further injury or complications. Aside from the occasional short lived stress ache, I have not had any neck pain since being treated by Josh Eha four years ago.

No two acupuncturist are alike. In every profession, there are going to be those that are good in their profession, and those not so good and then there are those that are EXCEPTIONAL. I was very fortunate to have had the experience that I did. Josh Eha is exceptional. He is amongst the best in his field and came personally recommended to me by the leading cardiologist in San Diego.

Sports Medicine

I train in the martial arts (kung fu and yang style tai chi). In preparation for a tournament I was injured a few weeks before the event and was unable to use my left shoulder and arm. My first encounter with Josh for acupuncture treatment was one of desperation to at least regain sufficient movement in my shoulder so that I could participate in push hands, the tournament combat form of tai chi. To my great surprise within a few treatments I was not only able to participate but played the best push hands to date (1st place in my age/wt group: >40 YO; 175-195#s). Josh is truly a talented and gifted healer.

Rotator Cuff

Not only is my Rotator Cuff pain all but gone, I was amazed at how quickly you fixed the problem. Before receiving treatment from you, I spend almost as many weeks in physical therapy, without results. I had no opinions of acupuncture prior to meeting you, but I am now a firm believer, and I am recommending it to my friends.
— Mike

Psoriatic Arthritis

Joshua Eha is a brilliant acupuncturist who has helped me immensely with relieving pain and stiffness from severe psoriatic arthritis. The arthritis in my upper back, shoulders, and particularly, my neck, is very painful – and Josh’s treatments have helped more than anything I’ve tried, including prescription medications. In fact, since I’ve started treatments with Josh Eha, I have taken fewer prescription drugs and have gotten back to regular exercise routines. I am very impressed with his thoughtfulness and his treatments. He is an individual who truly cares about his patients and strives for excellence as a medical professional. Thanks so much Josh for all that you’ve done for me!

Chronic Low Back Pain

Have been to many acupuncturists over the years, but you are the only one who gave me obvious improvement.
— Clay

Neck Pain/Kidney Stones

I have been experiencing neck pain, limited mobility and muscle spasms in my neck and shoulders for years. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease with broad spondylotic disc protrusion from C3 to C7. Traditional medicine offered shots, muscle relaxers and pain meds which did nothing to improve my quality of life. Because surgery wasn’t an option, my surgeon recommended acupuncture. Through Josh, acupuncture has relieved my pain, rid me of muscle spasms and increased my turn radius. I can now sleep, exercise and get through my day pain free. My quality of life has been improved significantly.

While being treated for my neck, I experienced my first kidney stone. After the first pain and diagnosis, I went to Josh to see if acupuncture could help. I was able to pass the stone with no further pain!!
— Nancy

Back Pain

I am a workman’s comp patient with chronic back pain. I had tried every therapy unsuccessfully and was facing either pill dependence or a second spinal fusion. I was in pain, unhappy and at the end of my rope.

My life turned around when I met Josh. My skepticism about acupuncture evaporated when I immediately regained the ability to sleep. And it just got better. I now enjoy a quality of life I didn’t believe possible.

I have been gently treated by an insightful, experienced professional whom I cannot recommend highly enough. And he’s a really nice guy.
— Alicia

Tennis Elbow

Thanks to Josh Eha’s experience and skillful acupuncture treatment methods, I am finally recovering from my right arm tennis elbow and tendonitis which hadn’t improved after one year of conventional pharmaceutical treatments! My entire experience was relaxing and confidence building because of everyone’s displayed concern and the overall atmosphere which put my nerves at ease at the onset.

One session of acupuncture gave me positive results and subsequent sessions have built upon that so that I now have use of my right hand and arm again. Josh was referred to me by my orthopedic surgeon, because he had proven to help many others with acupuncture before me, and I will refer him to all of my family and friends for comprehensive care who strive for well-being.

Holistic

I have been going to Josh for acupuncture for the past few years and have experienced results beyond relieving the site specific pain. With his holistic approach, Josh treats the emotional, spiritual, and physical issues within our entire body system. In doing so, the problem that brings me to the office improves and I gain personal growth and insight in the process. His approachable manner has made me feel comfortable in letting down any guard that might block the overall goal of the treatment. Josh is awesome at what he does!
— Ellen

Chronic Headaches

I have suffered from headaches for many years. They ranged from mild to completely incapacitating, averaging 4-5 headache days per week. I tried medications, physical therapy, massage and relaxation techniques with little improvement. I started acupuncture treatments with Josh Eha about 1 1/2 years ago and improved immediately. When I receive a treatment once every 2-3 weeks I am usually headache free most of the time. He has also worked with me on exercises to improve my condition while decreasing my dependence on his treatments. It has been truly life-changing to no longer endure headache pain most days. I have my life back.
