What People Say

Dr. Thu Yen Mac is incredible at acupuncture and integrative medicine!! She is brilliant to talk to, compassionate, grounded and really knows her way around the physical/emotional body. I am seeing her for symptoms from a Motor Vehicle Accident (she does take insurance!) and my neck and upper back were extremely sore. I also wasn't feeling so great as I had experienced a concussion earlier.

Dr. Thu Yen not only resolved the pain, but the PTSD too! To add to how amazing she is, I track my moods on a regular basis and hadn't had a 5 star or "great" day for months since the accident. After my first visit, I had my first 5 star night. I was so relieved I about cried!!!

Her office is also so so beautiful! The decor is cool, blue and inviting. The art, plants in glass on the wall, beautiful view, and luxurious foot soaks all make for not only pain relief but also a luxurious experience! And there's enough room to have a close group of girlfriends in for some self care time together!

One last thing. Dr. Thu Yen is not only extremely knowledgeable of her craft and much more, but her warm, open hearted inside and out beauty means she is both family and LGBTQ friendly. I love this about her because it means that her brilliant solution-based talents and peaceful, relaxing experience is open to ALL. Thank you Dr. Thu Yen!!!

Thu is amazing, the quality of care is bar-none. As a veteran I have sought various types of treatment for service connected conditions. Since she is A VA choice provider I have access to great alternative forms of care that is covered by the VA. She also has additional treatments that are cost efficient and better than any medication I have used particularly for pain and inflammation. No side effects, only great pain relief. Her bedside manner and sincere care for her patients shows with the high quality experience I get with every visit. I recommend to anyone. Veterans only need to call Tri-west and get a self referral for acupuncture and request her as a provider. You won't regret it. Thank you Thu, can't wait for my next visit.

Dr. Thu Yen Mac has helped me and my body completely. And I hate needles, but after you get over that if you're like me then it's so peaceful and helpful. I am a patient of hers now and she's so patient and so kind. If you don't want acupuncture she also has other services such as cupping, a tea foot soak, energy healing etc. Check her out, if you're ready to heal and help your body.

Last August I was suffering from a series of maladies, one after the other, that were dealt with individually by my primary care physician through a cocktail of powerful meds. Tired of feeling like a symptom and yearning to be treated as a whole individual, I sought alternative forms of medicine. I found West Oahu Acupuncture through my health insurance website, and made an appointment. Thuy Yen met me with an open mind and began unraveling the series of illnesses by treating my whole body with a combination of needles and moxa. It was slow-going at first and Thu Yen suggested we try Chinese Medicine (herbs) to supplement. After about a month, I began to notice changes in how I felt and in about two months, I made the decision to go off all of my western meds entirely. Thu Yen has been a wonderful addition to my personal "care team" and I'm grateful for her consistent care and concern for my well-being. My appointments at West Oahu Acupuncture make me feel like I'm on a little vacation! I always take a nap and (finally) get to totally relax. That's rare in my fast-paced stressful life. Bottom line, if you're looking for a compliment to your own care team, I recommend Thu Yen at West Oahu Acupuncture.
