"DR. Alex is amazing! He gave me my life back, and got me better! I had been battling adrenal fatigue from copper toxicity for 2 years. He truly healed me. He is an incredible healer! I had been to doctor after doctor over the years. I am just so happy I found him! Have faith, and trust in him. He will get you better if you follow what he says, and have patience.
- Keira H., Capistrano Beach, CA
"Absolutely the best choice I've made has been coming to Alex. I've been sticking with his diet plan for myself for 2 weeks and have been receiving acupuncture and having him work his magic and I feel amazing. I feel healthy and clean and feel a huge difference. I couldn't recommend him enough."
- Cheyanne C., Pollock Pines, CA
" I truly consider this the best massage of my life, I left feeling not only relaxed and rejuvenated, but also as if I had worked with a physical therapist, acupuncturist, and masseuse all in one. "Alex combined deep tissue with acupressure and he really worked out a lot of the tension I had built up in my body.My final thoughts: if you are looking for an amazing massage that offers you a chance to reconnect with your body and work on tension release, this is the place for you. I have found no better and I don't think I could. Go!"
- JZ of Oakland, CA
"I couldn't have hoped for more rapid recovery. Alex is holistic, and his treatment works on many levels."
My pain is reduced to a fraction of what it was, I'm
much happier, and I have been unlocking parts of my life I didn't
expect: my dreams are more rapidly resolving, the vast reduction of PTSD
makes meditation and socializing so much more rewarding, I'm getting my

" I have never had a massage that thorough. He found all my pressure
points and relaxed them with a very gentle, therapeutic approach. I am
hooked and telling all of my friends about him. I will find the money to
see him at least once a month. I am hooked."
Best manual therapist I've ever worked with! Alex has a healing touch. His work has helped me regain function after suffering from a back and neck injury. His knowledge and guidance is invaluable.
- Alesia M. - Oakland, CA
" The best massage that I have ever had. Alex is a master, as well as a caring human being. "
Chrisitina A. - Copperopolis, CA
" Alex is extremely diligent and takes great care in really
understanding his clients before prescribing an action plan. He is an
expert in nutrition and supplementation who really cares about the well
being of his clients. I will definitely continue to work with Alex. "
- Pete P., Chicago, IL
" Alex has been treating me for a couple of years now using hair
mineral analysis, nutritional balancing, acupuncture and herbs. I have
seen great results working with Alex! My allergies are almost 100% gone,
and I feel the healthier now than I ever have as an adult. Alex is
extremely knowledgeable and patient, and willing to explain everything
that he is doing to treat me so I feel comfortable and empowered.
- Lorien HW, Palo Alto, CA
" Alex has done wonders since I have been receiving services from him this past year and is by far the best acupuncturist and primary health care provider I have ever come across!
" I originally came to Alex to perform a hair analysis
test as I was constantly feeling exhausted and I had visited many
doctors throughout the past few years where I didn't feel as though I
was getting the answers I needed. When my hair analysis results came
back I was shocked, Alex walked step by step through my results helping
me to understand how my adrenals are functioning and the level of heavy
metals in my system amongst various other findings - adrenal exhaustion
and thyroid problems is what was causing the imbalance in my body, It
was extremely insightful to learn how my body was currently functioning
and ways in which I could get back to a healthy stage without taking
drugs that had negative side effects. "
- Michaela W., San Francisco, CA
"Alex's combination of knowledge about Chinese medicine
mixed with his knowledge of modern/ western medicine. He could explain
concepts of complementary medicines in modern medical terms. I prefer to
understand thoroughly what or why the treatments are working. And, the
work was all very helpful. I ended up trying a hair analysis as well,
which provided a lot of helpful information that unlocked some root
causes that led to where I feel so much more balanced now and able to
get back in balance on my own if things go array because I understand
what's going on."
- Christie O., San Francisco, CA
"I have chronic back pain, and have had this for the past 4 years. Alex Tuggle has been one of the acupuncturists who have been able to achieve some pain relief for me.
"Alex approached my case unlike anyone else I had seen, and he used different acupuncture points. He is someone willing to try new things, take different approaches on the treatment, and uses enough, but not too much force.
"I highly recommend Alex Tuggle for anyone, especially if they have experienced or have pain."
- Sarryh H. from Los Angeles, CA
“Alex is an amazing acupuncturist. His treatments are gentle yet effective. I have seen many different practitioners including acupuncturists, chiropractors, rolfers, and physical therapists.
Alex's treatments consistently gave me lasting relief
from chronic pain due to an old car accident. This was unique because
often treatments have only a temporary (a few hours) effect and I do not
feel that they address the underlying muscular and emotional issues
that Alex was able to resolve. I only wish that he still was in Los
Angeles so that I could keep seeing him! His treatments truly address
mind, body and spirit."
- Ashley B. from Los Angeles, CA
"I strongly recommend the services of Alex Tuggle, nutritionist extraordinaire. He uses Analytical Research Labs for hair analysis and can recommend a very effective (if somewhat plodding) nutritional balancing program.
"He also answers any number of ridiculous questions
through both email and phone. Simply getting a hair test and trying to
make sense of it yourself is unlikely to get you anywhere, but with some
practical guidance, you can really take a step toward feeling better."
" OMG!!! This man is a miracle! He works exactly where your tension
spots are and releases all the stress and bad chi!!! amazing!! LOVE LOVE
LOVE....I have major back issues and my entire body is always sore
because of my regular workouts and long work hours. "
N.G. - Sunnyvale, CA
" I knew from the first session that Alex really cares
about his patients and wants to see them reach their healthy state, I
have never had any health care provider take the time that Alex did to
answer all of my questions and be there via email or phone if I needed
to follow up after our initial consultation. I have been incorporating a
herbal daily regime and including acupuncture and I have experienced
positive changes even after Alex told me it could take up to two years
for my body to get back to a full healthy stage. Not only do I receive
acupuncture during each visit, I also have a follow up discussion with
Alex to express any concerns and my progress. Alex is very warming,
welcoming and is very educated, he has given me various exercise
techniques to help with my symptoms along with been a therapist by
helping me open up about the problems I have faced in life and how to
best handle them so they do not haunt my body long term."
- Michaela W. San Francisco, CA
" Words can not express how awesome the massage was that I
received at the Golden Wellness Center. I am truly relaxed and ready
to take on the world. Alex was able to release the tension that I had
within my body, he even found some spots that I did not know that I even
- Jabez J. Oakland, CA
" Alex is an exceptional professional who I would not hesitate to
recommend for nutritional balancing, lifestyle counseling, meditations
and wellness endeavors. "
- Keerthy S. Sacramento, CA
" Alex is thoroughly knowledgeable in all aspects of Chinese
medicine, from expert diagnosis to acupunture needle work. He has a very
strong knowledge of nutrition and herbs. He is well versed on all the
reputable providers of herbs. He also keeps a fresh stock of herbs for
individualized treatments. I also had hair analysis with Alex and found
the analysis and the prescribed herbs, minerals and vitamins to be very
therapeutic to the healing from my illnesses. Alex also recommended
exercises to improve my health and well being. I totally recommend him. "
