What Our Patients Say

“We’re expecting twins! Thank you for all your support in helping our dreams come true!”

Elaine G.

“We recently moved across country but I wanted to say that I am so very thankful for the acupuncture and care provided over the past couple of years. I wish that I could teleport back to San Antonio for more treatments!”

Lauren B.

“I am a 74 year old, (mostly) retired dentist. I have had cervical arthritis for the past 17 years and as a result have had moderate to severe all day headaches periodically every two weeks to two months.

I have tried many treatment methods during the past decade and a half without success. Six months ago I tried acupuncture administered by Scot Taylor and it has been successful; 80-90% of the pain is gone. The slight pain that I now have is easily managed with Advil and Tylenol.”

Joe W.

“I just wanted to let you know that after all this time we got the fantastic news that we are pregnant! I know this would not be possible without your help. Thank you so much for everything!”

Jennifer M.

“Elizabeth is a highly skilled acupuncturist, I highly recommend her!”

Nomi E.

“My hour of acupuncture treatment is restorative, pain relieving and peaceful. It’s a miraculous way for me to keep my chronic back pain “under control”. With the restored energy that I feel, I can live the life that I want to live.

 

I’m so thankful this centuries-old medicine has found it’s way to Texas, in general, and my front door, specifically.”

Carolyn C.

“Acupuncture treatments have helped me with sciatic pain from two herniated discs. Surgery was an alternative that I chose not to do.

Acupuncture has been a very effective pain reliever. Thank you!”

Maggie F.

“Last year I came to Balance Acupuncture  for my recurring migraines. My prescription medications were offering little relief. After doing some online research about acupuncture, I set up an appointment with Scot. He explained the science behind acupuncture and developed a treatment regimen for me. I have been migraine free for 7 months. I definitely recommend Scot and Balance Acupuncture to anyone.” 
Laura M.

“What can I say?! Scot has been such a huge part of my infertility journey, as well as my battles with anxiety and chronic pain. I feel so blessed to have crossed paths with him, not only for the acupuncture but for the words of wisdom, hope and encouragement. San Antonio is very lucky to have a place like Balance Acupuncture!”

Crystal N.

Energy boosting, anxiety reducing and pain reducing!! Absolutely loved my treatment!!

Jacqueline

“Thank you! I left the gym today and realized that I still had energy after a one hour workout. Three months ago I would have been lucky to even walk through the door of the gym I was so tired. My skin looks better than it has in years and I can easily get out of bed when my alarm goes off at 6AM.

I find it much easier to make the changes that I need to make in lifestyle and I am losing weight! After two years of being treated like a hypochondriac  or told that I was lazy or eating poorly by my physicians I was beginning to feel defeated. I appreciate that you listened to me when I said that something wasn’t quite right. Thank you again for all of your help!”

Amanda M.

Elizabeth Arris is the best acupuncturist I have ever been to. I had previously seen acupuncturists who were always helpful but not as professional and effective as Elizabeth. She is the one who was able to almost eradicate my symptoms from stage one breast cancer and radiation. Her skill, her ability to listen to symptoms, and to address them with acupuncture amazed me but more importantly allowed me to leave feeling a lot better. She helped me cope with the malaise, exhaustion, and severe hot flashes I was having. I am eternally grateful for her assistance in dealing with cancer and the extreme health challenges it posed for me

Julianna A.

“Amazing attention to detail! Elizabeth is very astute and intuitive. I love and appreciate the blend of the ancient art of acupuncture mixed with a solid understanding of modern science. Excellent professionalism. Atmosphere is beautiful and CLEAN (and I am super picky).
A++”

Marion A.

“In 2003 I had severe, debilitating fibromyalgia with chronic fatigue. I had lost almost all of my muscle mass and over 20 pounds. I was unable to dress myself or do the smallest task without assistance from my husband. I walked with a cane and was bent forward slightly at the waist. The medical doctors I consulted told me they could do nothing to help my condition, except help me to live with it. They said there was “no” cure.

When I was told about acupuncture I started immediate treatments and found great pain relief. After a year of following a treatment regimen prescribed by Mr. Taylor I had regained about 75% of my mobility, range of motion, and muscle mass. I had very little pain. I continued treatments approximately once a month for about six months and regained virtually all of my strength and mobility and was basically pain free.
I currently receive treatment on a “need” basis, which is once or twice a year if I have any muscle soreness or pain. There “is” a cure.”

Elizabeth is an amazing reader of pulses to accurately pinpoint what is needed to restore your health. She is deeply intuitive, a compassionate listener and a gentle practitioner.
You will be relaxed and feel cared for when working with Elizabeth. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

“Great news…..I’m pregnant!!

I truly appreciate your kindness and support throughout this whole process. You guys are awesome!

Thank you so much!”

Mandy H.

“How can I possibly thank you for miracles wrought, for pain relieved and for general kindness? I so appreciate all you have done for me over the past months.”
Dorothy S.

“I just wanted to say thank you for your treatments during my frozen embryo transfer. It worked, I’m pregnant!

My betas were very high and ultra-sound is next week. Thank you again for everything!”

Taylor M.

“I wanted to write to tell you our good news! Thanks to your help – we’re pregnant! 13 weeks today! We couldn’t be more excited for all that is to come!”

Candice J.

“Before I visited Balance Acupuncture, I was in constant pain. I had a knee joint replacement and the result was that one leg was now a quarter of an inch longer than the other. This threw my whole body out of balance and I had a lot of hip and back pain. Over a series of treatments the pain was pretty much gone. I was also treated by Scot for menopausal symptoms. I had annoying hot flashes several times a day, and through the night which interrupted my sleep. Scot treated me with Oriental herbs and within two to three weeks the symptoms pretty much disappeared. I am very impressed with Scot’s knowledge, abilities, skills, and willingness to answer all of my questions. I do recommend Scot to anyone who may be in pain or have the kind of difficulties I was having. I only wish that I had seen Scot before I had the knee replacement. I am sure if I had, he would have helped me far better than the surgery has.” 
Rebeca D.

I have always wanted to try acupuncture but was a little nervous. I felt right at home here. Elizabeth eased me into the process and always made sure I was comfortable. I have had three treatments so far but I am already noticing a difference. I would definitely recommend anyone having muscle pain or headaches to give this a try.

Margaret

“I came to Balance Acupuncture and Natural Medicine a year ago because my husband and I were unable to conceive. Scot provided not only his services but his encouragement. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this!

After one unsuccessful IUI, I was scheduled for another one the next month. This was successful and produced my two wonderful boys. I feel strongly that my acupuncture treatments played a big part in leading me to a healthy pregnancy.

I think it’s important to give thanks for this wonderful gift and I feel that Scot was an important part of this process. Thank you again for all your efforts!”

Lisa D.

“I have a neuromuscular disease that has caused me significant pain emanating from continual spasms. In addition to that the disease causes profound weakness in both legs. I also have two herniated discs in my lower spine and nerve damage at the top of my spine – the herniated discs cause extreme pain in my lower spine, hips, and legs, and the nerve damage causes pain and weakness radiating down my arms to my hands. My spasms are frequent and painful and often they contort my body into painful positions. I have had this disease since 2000 and in that time nobody has been able to treat me in the manner that Scot does. With acupuncture a needle is inserted into a pressure point of a particular muscle – the result is a relaxed and pain free muscle. In a nutshell, he releases my pain with each appointment. Scot is a true healer. He is thorough and conscientious in everything he does. With each appointment Scot inquires about my current problems and will focus on those areas. I always leave feeling much better than when I came in. If you have issues like I have, and believe me I have many – I truly believe Scot can help you too.

Scot has been able to help me manage my pain in ways that no traditional doctor has. In fact, he was recommended by my primary care physician. After many attempts at other methods including medications, physical therapy, aquatic therapy, and massage therapy, acupuncture by Scot has provided the best results.”

Shellie B.

I struggle with chronic back pain but it becomes very manageable after receiving treatment from Elizabeth. Not only has Elizabeth helped treat my physical pain but I have also gotten a lot of relief from stress as a result of her treatment. I highly recommend her services!

Mary A.

“Thank you so very much for being part of our team! We feel very blessed to be parents and we thank you for your expertise in helping us get there. Hope to see you soon, I enjoy the sessions so much!”

Ashley K.

I saw Elizabeth when she practiced in Maine. I sought treatment for physical trauma and acupuncture ended up helping me recover emotionally as well!
