I have to say, I was skeptical about acupuncture but I decided to give this a shot after a decade of failed western medicine. Pills and labs have not gotten me far and I was tired of it. First off, Ms. Julia is the best. She not only addresses the ailments you came for, but she looks after your over all healthy. She's incredibly kind and very professional. After my first session, I knew I had found the right treatment. I was in a euphoric state and had felt the after affects for days. I don't know the science behind it, but it works. Anyone skeptical and curious should give her a shot. She treats a huge list of ailments. If you're reading this, thank you again Ms Julia. Your treatments have been life changing to say the least.

I've been going to Sports Care Acupuncture for 5+ yrs. I stumbled across Ms. Julia's ad, just looking for sports massage services (while training for body building). She offered acupuncture WITH the sports massage!! I was shocked and couldn't help but try her services. That was in January 2015... I'm still one of her clients today. I love her attention with my trouble spots. I like that she asks about your overall well being and not just for what you've come in for. I had slight pain in my right knee and had no problems after about 6 sessions. I could go on & on about Sports Care Acupuncture!... The services are great! I've even introduced a few people to her and they're still clients.

I have had about 15 appointments with Julia, and I'm very satisfied with the results achieved. My review about Julia's new office: - very clean, well located (1 min from the Beltway), free parking available, and friendly staff. About the treatment: - For some time I have suffered from pain in the right side of my body (shoulder, back, knee, foot, etc) but, with a combination of accupancture, cupins, and massages I feel much better now. Thanks Julia! About Julia: - She is punctual, very professional, and knowledgeable. I rightly recommend Sports Care Accupancture to anyone. I only stopped going there because they don't accept my new health endurance plan.

I first came to Sports Care Acupunture Center through Groupon with my daughter. After the first session with Julia we were hooked . She is very knowledgeable, caring and just amazing. She did massage , acupuncture and cupping, what an experience. We now are regular clients. I would absolutely recommend her office.

Dr. Julia is amazing! I have been coming to her for almost a year now and I love it. She takes her time with me, and makes sure she addresses all my issues. She always makes sure I'm completely comfortable. Most doctors rush you in and out, not really truly listening to what the real problem is. Dr. Julia never rushes the appointment and works very hard to ensure the patient is happy after each session. I leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!
