“Where do I even begin…
I went to Eileen for period/fertility treatment. I was on birth control for about 9 years and got off the pills last November, and by January I still didn’t get my period. I know it’s normal to take at least 3 months, but I didn’t want to wait too long so I started going to Eileen in the beginning of January. The first few sessions are mainly for detoxing. Eileen gave me some Chinese herbs to take and in 2 weeks I got my period back.
After the detoxing part, she was working to get my period shorter and more regular. She gave me a different type of herbs to take and I was taking it consistently. I saw her every 2 weeks or so to maintain my treatments. She instructed me to not sit on cold benches, no swimming and always keep my mid section warm. I am Chinese so I am familiar with why she gave those specific instructions. Keeping your reproductive part warm and cozy is the key to conception.
My periods were a little lengthier than normal but they are somewhat regular. My husband and I didn’t actively start trying until the end of March. When I came back from vacation, Eileen asked me to start using moxa rolls. I did that every night over my stomach for about a month and a half. Meanwhile keep drinking her herbs everyday and ginger tea (warming uterus) every now and then. I got pregnant in May.
I keep going to her after I was pregnant just to make sure everything’s fine. The last appointment I went she took my pulse and told me the gender of the baby, and lo and behold, she is right!! Even though I haven’t told her in person yet 🙂
Eileen is so experienced and pleasant to be around. She’s not just an acupuncturist but also like a mom, looking after you and your health. I thank her immensely for helping me conceive so quickly and I will definitely keep going to her for my body “tune-up”!”

Lumbar and Sciatica pain
“I have bad lumbar pain and sciatica pain from an injury
I come here at least once a week for pain. And every time left feeling better. I love all the doctors here,all are fabulous. I totally recommend this place.”
Kitty K. – Carlsbad, CA.
“I’ve been to several acupuncturists, and Eileen is definitely good at what she does!! I was fortunate to get a referral from my insurance so I’ve been going twice a week for the last several weeks to treat a very aggravated shoulder injury I originally incurred from several dislocations, later surgery, as well as more recently a few instances of scar tissue tearing and my treatment has been nothing shy of amazing!!
I would definitely recommend Eileen to anyone in the San Diego area!! She really knows what she’s doing and every time she has treated me she’s been able to target my pain which is chronic and sometimes constant.”

“Eileen and her partners are amazing healers! I started with Eileen Han Acupuncture in August of 2014 a week after my 4-5 surgery and my first bone graft of three and I still need a hip replacement. I was recovering from a head on collision with a drunk driver I had been in the hospital for a month and half then in a skilled nursing facility for 6 months. I had been on 40mg OxyContin every 12 hours and 10 mg dilaudid every 3 hours for break through pain. I was in a wheel chair. 3 days after my first bone graft surgery I began acupuncture with Eileen. I was committed to getting well and managing my pain without drugs. I did 3-4 hour sessions of acupuncture 6 days in a row. I listened to Eileen who said the longer I stayed the more benefit I would receive. She said to listen to my body and it would respond. I admit I was not sure it would work but 6 days later I discontinued the OxyContin much to the amazement of my doctor. I continued to taper down all my pain meds. I continued my care 3 days a week allowing 4 hours each session but typically 1-2 hours was all my body needed. I did this schedule for about 2.5 years. It’s sound intense but if you think about taking pills every 4 hours to manage pain and not being to remember anything then why not do 3 days of up-to 4 hours a session and no pain meds? Makes sense to me to be healthy and not put my brain, liver or kidneys at risk. I am able to manage my pain without any reliance on narcotic pain meds. It is awesome to enjoy mental clarity and recall free from the mind fogging pain meds. It’s been almost a year since my last visit and I am back because I failed to keep to a regular routine of acupuncture visits because I allowed work and other things to block my self-care. Now I have gone every other day for the past two weeks and I am able to get out of bed without hobbling or hunched over. My facial expression no longer cause family members to wonder what is causing me upset or anger (my pain was reflected on my face whether I knew it or not) and I can enjoy life with much much less pain. I have a follow up with my doctor because in my desperation of needing relief I did what we are taught to do… call a doctor but what I really need to do was just call the acupuncturist and commit to allowing my body to know what to do and give myself time for self-care so I could continue enjoying the amazing ride of life!”

“Eileen is truly amazing! My daughter came to see her for eczema. She was scared of the needles as this was her first experience with acupuncture and was hesitant. Eileen made her feel so comfortable and at ease. She is highly knowledgeable and truly cares about the well-being of her patients. It was amazing to see Eileen take time to asses, diagnose and treat her over the course of time. She talked to her about diet as well. We were so fortunate to have been referred to her for treatment.”
Mehrak S. – San Diego, CA.
“When I turned 35, I had no idea why I was gaining so much weight, couldn’t sleep at night, and was getting emotional for no good reason. I was referred to Dr. Han by my sister who thought it might be early menopause. She was right, and even better, Dr. Han was able to quickly diagnose and treat me. Within a few treatments, I was feeling a lot more like myself and the symptoms faded. Now I seek out Dr. Han’s help for so many things—pain, insomnia, and migraines—and she never disappoints!”
Pregnancy / Fertility
“My OB/GYN told me that after 3 years of trying to get pregnant, including 2 rounds of IVF, that I would probably never conceive. As a last resort, I decided to try acupuncture. I left my first appointment with Dr. Han feeling amazing and relaxed but didn’t think it had done anything for my infertility. I decided to come back for a series of treatments and was blown away when I found out I was pregnant with our first child just 3 months later. AMAZING.”
“I had let a knee injury go for too long (taking painkillers and ibuprofen) and it wasn’t getting better. I was about to schedule surgery when I heard about Dr. Han. I’m so glad I came in when I did, because she was able to gradually help me heal the pain and injury, to the point that now I don’t need surgery. I can’t imagine what would have happened without her help!”
“I was born with a heart murmur, and as I got older, I started to have chest pains and high blood pressure (HBP). When I went in for my consultation, I didn’t tell Dr. Han about any of these problems, but through her evaluation, she figured all of them out. I started getting treated for the chest pains and HBP—acupuncture every week and Chinese herbs—and have seen great results. Even my cardiologist is pleasantly surprised! Thank you, Dr. Han!”
“Eileen and her associates provide knowledgeable, competent care. The office is clean and efficient. I’ve been going there for over 3 years. Eileen can treat all kinds of health issues and then help you maintain your good health. She’s the best vitamin I could take.”

Neck and shoulder pain
“The best, seriously the best!!! She was introduced to me by my good friend Marion who saw her for neck and shoulder pain. I had sciatica issues for an entire yr over 10 yrs ago, and Eileen did her magic and I’ve been pain free to this day. I have also been in 2 minor car accidents since then and still I’m pain free. She also did a little magic on my ex boyfriend at the time who had a hard time “keeping it up” if you know what I mean. ”
Miss J. – San Diego, CA.
“Eileen is all around amazing! Not only does she help heal you, she is very easygoing and personable that you can’t help but fall in love with her.
I went in for a pinched nerve in my neck that extended down into my shoulders and hand, which bothered me for about a year (longest, miserable year of my life). One visit to Eileen and the pain in my hand was gone. A couple more visits helped my neck and shoulder issues become manageable. Any time I feel my neck/shoulder acting up, I visit Eileen, and I’m so much better. I feel like I’ve become dependent on her acupuncture skills for all my body issues.”
Robia C. – San Diego, CA.
“I had horrible pain in the right side of my neck for few days. Couldn’t deal with the pain anymore so I decided to get acupuncture done. Went there for 2 days, and OMG. Miracle. My pain was gone and I can move my neck now. Everyone there is nice, professional…. They know exactly what they are doing and I recommend this place to anyone who needs acupuncture done.”

Cripling back pain
“Eileen Han is a very skilled, intuitive, compassionate and experienced acupuncturist. I have been seeing her for almost 2 years for various treatments, including cripling back pain. The pain would be so terrible at times that I could not move or do anything for myself. When this would happen, I would immediately go and see Eileen and after a treatment, the pain would be much less. My friends and colleagues were amazed to see the relief the acupuncture provided me. ”
Sandra H. – San Diego, CA.
“I was a patient of Dr.Tan for years and was being treated for Rheumatoid Arthritis with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. Now that he has retired Eileen Han has taken over for him and I have to say I thought I would never find anyone close to Dr. Tan’s skills but he has trained her well and she has absorbed all he has taught her. I have severe Rheumatoid Arthritis as well as Osteoarthritis and and Ulcer that she is treating me for. I also have problems with my tendons and connective tissue in my shoulders from prolonged hours of surfing. She inserted a needle in my calf muscle? The pain was so bad but only lasted a few seconds,she said she was doing all of my Tendons at once. It worked great and I felt minimal pain in my shoulders for a little over a week. I have seen her about 4x because and can’t wait to get back in there.”
Herb B. – San Diego, CA.
“I love love love Eileen!!! I’ve been seeing her for my migraines of 6 years. The results after a month have been AMAZING! I have had 1 or 2 migraines since I began seeing her. That is such a relief! No more meds no more messing with my liver to feel somewhat normal again. I was so terrified to see someone for acupuncture but now I can’t figure out why! haha She puts you at ease and seems to just know what is going on without you even having to say what is wrong. Every time I am done with my treatment and walking out of her office I feel like I’m floating. This is the most relaxing thing I’ve ever done. Thank you Eileen!!! You’ve saved me from daily pain”.
