Genuine Care For Pain Reduction
I cannot say enough good about Dr. Stein. He is incredibly smart, thoughtful and caring. I went to see him after an odd series of medical events that had my body all out of wack. He has been great at helping break all of the symptoms/issues down and working on them one by one. Helping find the rot cause, not just treating the symptoms. A++++
Rooting Out The Cause
I was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer and started going to Rocky Coast Family Acupuncture a year ago to help with the side effects of chemotherapy. Jason Stein met with me on my first consultation and I immediately felt a connection with him, as if I had known him forever.  I found it extremely easy to share my concerns and medical issues with Jason. Not only did he always come equipped with a variety of options to help me, it was evident that he genuinely cared about my health and well being. Whenever I would present him with a new issue, he would spend extra hours researching the best regimen to help alleviate my symptoms. Jason and his team go above and beyond with their patients to truly get to the root of the problem.Most recently the medications that I am on have caused severe joint pain. It was to the point where I was potentially going to have to switch to something less effective in combating breast cancer recurrence.  Jason provided me with a variety of natural supplements to help remedy post chemo side effects and work as natural cancer fighters.  He provided me with supplements that are proven to naturally help with joint pain. After about a week I no longer experienced the severe joint pain that was a result of my medication and I was able to stay on the medication that has the greatest success rate. Additionally, knowing that anything I am given at Rocky Coast does not come with another list of added side effects has really kept my mind at ease.Acupuncture has also played a large role in keeping my anxiety at bay during such a stressful time. I have always had anxiety but after my diagnosis this heightened quite a bit. Along with the anxiety associated with this diagnosis, I started to experience low energy and depression from the combination of medications I was taking. Acupuncture has helped me a great deal with these aspects as well. My medical team has been very aggressive with treating the disease but often times the emotional component in dealing with cancer can be overlooked.  The team at Rocky Coast understands that there is a connection between the two. They focus on what is being depleted both emotionally and physically during a time when so many medicines are working in combination with one another.If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with cancer, I would highly recommend starting acupuncture as soon as possible.  Getting on a schedule of one to two appointments a week early on will help you to get ahead of the many side effects that come along with cancer treatments. Integrative therapies in combination with western medicine has been a huge contributor in feeling as well as I do today and I feel so lucky to be a patient at Rocky Coast.

It is impossible to overstate my love and gratitude for the acupuncturists at RCFA. When I became a client at RCFA, my partner and I had been trying to conceive for 3 years. I had tried everything short of IVF and had had two miscarriages. We were getting ready to move on to IVF when a friend suggested I go to RCFA for support during the process. In Jason and Chris, I found incredibly dedicated, knowledgeable, and kind providers. They were such an important counterbalance to the isolation of infertility treatment. While one IVF doctor I worked with told me, “You’re not completely broken,” Jason and Chris saw the whole, healthy, well me and had a dynamic, holistic approach to my fertility. Through three intense and unsuccessful rounds of IVF, Jason and Chris were there with humor, faith, and a depth of knowledge that was incredibly reassuring.
After our third round of IVF, the next option was an egg donor. I was sad and resigned and exhausted. Jason said, ‘Will you just give me three months with herbs and acupuncture?’ With nothing to lose, I agreed. After the second cycle of treatment, I stared down at the positive pregnancy test in amazement. Despite our initial joy, after two miscarriages I knew well that we had a long road ahead. I was lucky enough to have RCFA on that road, and they worked hard to help me have a healthy pregnancy. My partner and I are now the absolutely delighted parents of a wild and hilarious 18 month old. I am so lucky to have found Jason and Chris. I would wholeheartedly recommend RCFA to anyone on a fertility journey.

Leah was attentive to my questions and physical/emotional needs. She was very professional and just an overall sweet person. All the combined treatments I received during my session were successful in diminishing my discomfort, as well as anxiety level. I'm delighted with the care I receive from everyone at Rocky Coast Acupuncture.

"I went to Dr. Stein to help me through a transition in my life that was manifesting into physical ailments & emotional upheaval. Not only did my physical symptoms subside but he listened to my story & helped me gain the emotional strength I needed to get to a better state of being. Within a few months I have moved from a perpetual anxious state into a present place of calmness. Thank you Dr. Stein & staff at Rocky Coast Acupuncture."

I was having severe migraines. After acupuncture, I started having 3/4, 2/3 migraines, 1/2 migraines. They would begin, with the same triggers, but they wouldn't peak and I wasn't losing 48 hours. After five years, I almost don't get migraines.

I haven't grown a cyst on my ovary in probably five or six years. This is an alternative medicine that does work. I'm living proof of that.

I had been to a reproductive endocrinologist who had said I was going to need a lot of medical help to get pregnant so I was able to avoid all of that with acupuncture. It appears that when they put the needle it increases your body’s own opioids and your own endorphins.

I never really believed in acupuncture and then I was trying to get pregnant for eight months and I was going to have to start doing invasive treatments to see if anything was wrong. My hairstylist was telling me about Chris at Rocky Coast Family Acupuncture. So I made an appointment and came and got pregnant that month.
Kelly, Fertility
Chris was with me at the start of what I now call my "fertility journey" and her work is both effective on its own and complementary to Western medicine. She helped me relieve stress and get my body ready for pregnancy through acupuncture, and acupuncture increased the potency of the Western fertility therapy I eventually ended up receiving. I remember coming in for acupuncture from Chris the day after I suspected that I had finally conceived and feeling like the procedure was truly going to help the pregnancy take hold. It did - hooray!

"Acupuncture is...STARTING A FAMILY. It's realizing I can get pregnant, time focused on my entire well-being, and a healing relationship. And, I cannot disregard that, to me, it's Jason and Beth. I have such high regard for them. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else." 
Aileen, Fertility
