Although I have recommended acupuncture to many patients in the past, I had never tried it myself until I saw Kristen and Tony Burris. With just a few treatments, my chronic insomnia improved dramatically. Since then, I have sent many patients to Tony and Kristen for various complaints, and all have had excellent results. I wholeheartedly recommend Eagle Acupuncture to anyone interested in addressing their health concerns with traditional Chinese medicine or acupuncture.

Acupuncture is helping my itchies [itching between fingers] go away.” My warrior son has just finished 33 months of treatment for leukemia (the cause of the “itchies”). He had acupuncture as part of his Thrivorship Plan during treatment and is upping his game post-treatment to ensure that his body remains strong and able to heal itself.

After almost 2 months of a non-stop, heavy period, I had acupuncture treatment by Kristen. The next day, it completely stopped and and now I am back to my normal cycle. Thank you, Kristen.

Kristen is an expert in her field! Women I refer to Kristen are delighted with their care! She is very knowledgeable about women’s health including infertility. I highly recommended Eagle Acupuncture Center.

I had the opportunity to work closely with Kristen Burris during a month-long rotation at the San Diego Hospice. She worked exceedingly well with Western-trained physicians. She never offered to treat anything outside her scope of practice, and was genuinely helpful in offering possible treatment solutions to patients with difficult treatment dilemmas. She demonstrated this on me with a very short acupuncture treatment for a left trapezium spasm from which I have been completely cured.

I came to Kristen after just experiencing a miscarriage. We had been trying for 4 years prior to the miscarriage, and were completely devastated. After just 3 months of acupuncture and herbs prescribed by Kristen, we became pregnant with a daughter! She is now 2 years old, and we just welcomed our son at the beginning of January. We are so thankful we had no trouble getting pregnant with our son, and we know acupuncture healed my body for good!

I believe one of the main reasons my wife and I could have our child was because of the Eagle Acupuncture. Thank you for everything.

I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Eagle Acupuncture for helping me overcome my post-partum issues. After giving birth, I experienced severe post-partum anxiety, anemia and insomnia. New moms know gthey won’t get much sleep, but I couldn’t sleep even when our baby slept. I knew something was wrong! With the help of Kristen Burris’ acupuncture treatments, support and naturalistic tools, I’ve been able to significantly minimize these issues. I was an acupuncture skeptic– now I highly recommend it to new mamas as an amazing post-partum treatment!

I am a mess while pregnant. I had so many issues that I presented to Kristen and she was on top of it! I walked in with a headache I’ve had for weeks and couldn’t get rid of, I battle nausea and vomiting while pregnant, high blood pressure and edema… she addressed my issues and I feel like a new human after one visit!

I have had acupuncture several times in the past for various minor complaints, but never on a consistent basis. I began seeing Kristen Burris two months ago and since then, I have had major improvements. Each time, the service I receive is exceptionally warm, punctual, and professional. Tony and Kristen Burris have years of experience successfully addressing a wide variety of medical conditions, and I recommend their services without reservation.

After two months of chronic pain, many medications and several painful procedures all of which failed I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis. It is a painful bladder syndrome that I was told had no cure. I was given a list of foods not… to eat and was suggested physical therapy. While researching IC on the Mayo Clinic website it suggested acupuncture as a treatment. I made an appointment with Tony at Eagle Acupuncture and after four visits my pain was gone. This was my first time to receive acupuncture and I am so happy to be pain free and grateful for Tony’s professionalism and compassion. The treatments are very relaxing and my over all well being has greatly improved. I highly recommend Eagle Acupuncture.

Thanks in part to all of your help, my labor was fast and efficient and I did it without any pain medication. I can’t thank you enough for helping to make the birth that I wanted a reality.

I sought treatment for chronic pain, inflammation, incontinence, MS and fibromyalgia. I came in with tension, pain and despair. Kristen listened to me and now I’m walking in the clouds. I can breathe, relax and think without pain or strain. Kristen lifted it all out from deep throughout my body freeing me to enjoy living again. I feel young and I feel great!
— Christine Pickerel Boise, ID

Tony was able to help me with debilitating sciatica that no other doctor could help with. I had chiropractic adjustments, Cortisone injections, prescription medications, physical therapy- none of it helped with the painful sciatica that plagued me day in and day out. After several sessions with Tony the “zings” became fewer and fewer and then one day they were just gone. It’s been over a year with no sciatica pain. I am now a true believer in the healing power of acupuncture.

We just welcomed baby number three into our family and I feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude towards Kristen…When I came to Eagle Acupuncture…my husband and I had been trying for our second child for over two years. I had suffered a miscarriage ten months before and was receiving the usual infertility treatment from my OB/GYN. They…gave me infertility medication and referred me to the infertility specialist in town for IVF as my only other treatment option… Kristen is warm, caring, and she gave me hope at a time when I had none. I have always been afraid of needles and, as such never believed I would be okay with acupuncture – but I found myself looking forward to the treatments... The needles were mostly undetectable and I treasured the time I was on the treatment table…while I was worried about money I knew it was vastly less expensive than what I would pay for a (fertility) doctor…I got my positive pregnancy test just two months after my first visit with Kristen. My husband and I couldn’t believe how blessed we were but I was terrified of it resulting in another miscarriage. Kristen treated me and reassured me throughout the entire pregnancy and I gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl at 41 weeks.

After the birth, I was concerned I would need to start acupuncture every time I wanted to get pregnant, but Kristen reassured me …that getting pregnant again shouldn’t be an issue. My family moved to Virginia a year later, and have since given birth to my third child!

I recommend Kristen…and urge them to see her before taking as long as I did. Her acupuncture should be a first step rather than the last, but thankfully, she works her magic no matter where you are in your journey.

Kristen and Tony Burris are legitimate miracle workers. We were diagnosed with unexplained infertility will several failed interventions under our belt before we found Kristen. We even had an IVF round that yielded no embryo growth under the care of a reproductive endocrinologist. I had been to a previous acupuncturist before, but the comparison was not even close. In her care, you know you are doing something that is going to be big. We also had many experiences with Tony, who again, like Kristen, is overall a wonderful human being. It’s hard to put into words how you feel around both Tony and Kristen, but I was definitely more at peace when I was receiving treatments.
After 5 months of treatments, herbs and supplements, despite our previous 2% odds given by a reproductive endocrinologist, we were pregnant. No additional interventions needed, just acupuncture. The joy of sitting on Kristen’s table, telling her you did it, will never leave my memory. She truly has a gift. I continued regular treatments during that time as well. When we were ready to try for #2, even though I knew often times, patients of Kristen and Tony didn’t need any help with additional pregnancies, I was terrified. Imagine my surprise when after 1 month of trying, I got to sit on Kristen’s table again and tell her, we’re pregnant!
I can never thank Eagle Acupuncture enough for the gifts they’ve given me and my family. There really is no real way to repay them. They are truly miracle workers who clearly love what they do and are fabulous at it!

Pregnancy loss. A club no one wants to be a part of, but one I found myself in about a year and a half ago due to an ectopic pregnancy…not once…but twice. Losing two chances at fulfilling my dream of a baby within 3 months time sent me to a dark place and was the most devastating time of my life. As someone who has always wanted to be a mama, the pain was almost unbearable and the strength it took to get through each day came from a reserve that I didn’t know I had. I was lost and confused and just plain sad. Surgery was suggested to me, but it was not imperative, so I decided to look at other options. After researching some natural alternatives to heal my body, I came across Eagle Acupuncture and knew I wanted to give them a try. Boy, am I glad I found them! Kristen suggested a technique to help move the (embryo) down the fallopian tube- and it worked! Miraculously, our baby boy made his way down the tube doctors wanted to remove. Her continued support throughout my pregnancy has been amazing and so reassuring- and the sessions are so relaxing! If you are struggling with something, go talk with Kristen! It was the best decision I could have made.

I knew I needed something to get my cycle going again after our last baby (he is 2 years now) if we were going to be able to get pregnant again. After doing a bit of research online, I knew that Kristen and her team were the only ones I wanted to see; experts in their field with real experience in fertility and real results! My cycle is not very regular…(after seeing Kristen)…I was able to ovulate and then we got a positive pregnancy test! We were thrilled and couldn’t be happier that we found a specialist in fertility in our greater area (we live in Melba) who is so good at what they do!
We continued to see Kristen until she got us safely through the first trimester (we suffered a miscarriage… prior to seeing Kristen) and at the end of the pregnancy to balance my body in preparation for labor. Now we have our 3 month old safely in our arms…we are so in love.

As a competitive athlete, I have tried various types of therapy... After a slight injury (and)…after months of receiving very little progress with other therapies, I messaged Tony Burris at Eagle Acupuncture. After my first visit with Tony, I left with more pain relief than I had felt in months. I could extend my neck! I was so relieved. With weekly treatments leading up to Strongwoman Nationals, I was able to continue training and won first place in my division. I can’t thank Tony enough for his support and understanding in helping me… I would recommend Tony to anyone looking for sport therapy, as well as relief from life stress. Acupuncture is nothing to fear and I am very thankful for Eagle Acupuncture and will continue to receive care leading up to my next competition, the world championship at the Arnold Classic.

I wanted to write and let you know how happy I was that I came to Tony and had acupuncture treatment for my problems. I have had chronic congestion, as well as some numbness in my left thumb that was not going away, and leg spasms at night. Additionally, I was under a great deal of stress... After my first treatment, I had one of the best night’s sleep in a long time. Tony continued to treat me with acupuncture and an herbal supplement and I am feeling better than I have in a long time; congestion gone, numbness in finger gone, muscle spasm in leg…gone!

I would certainly recommend Tony and Eagle Acupuncture to anyone who has problems that don’t seem to resolve by traditional Western Medicine methods.

After suffering a lower back injury, I went through a long series of treatments from my chiropractor without finding relief. In the past I had found this to be a pretty reliable method of treatment, but this time I had barely made progress. After having over twenty chiropractic treatments over a two-month period, I was still experiencing intense pain and had not been able to do …even the most basic of my daily activities. It was depressing to be in so much pain for such a long time. I did a little research and decided to make an appointment with Tony Burris. Tony could not have been more kind and professional and he put me completely at ease. I felt no pain during my treatments with him and after just two treatments, my back pain was completely gone. I was stunned and thrilled! I would highly recommend Tony at Eagle Acupuncture for anyone looking for pain relief of any kind. This will be my first go-to method for pain relief in the future and I am grateful to have found this wonderful place of healing in my own community.

I have struggled to write this review because I am still in shock. I don’t know that I have fully grasped the reality of our miracle. After 7 long, frustrating years full of fertility treatments and devastation my husband and I are finally expecting our first child. We started seeing Tony and Kristen right before we were to begin our very last option (IVF). We are so incredibly thankful that we found Eagle Acupuncture! 4 months after we began treatment I became pregnant! Their kindness, compassion and professionalism got us through one of the roughest times in our life. We will forever be thankful

It’s the feeling of wishing I had known then what I know now. I was desperate, however, and even as well informed and educated as I thought I was – I was wrong. I wish I knew about acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine before I had the ablation, as that’s where much of this path of regret and desperation began. Since the birth of my last child three years prior I began experiencing extremely heavy periods with excessive bleeding that impacted my personal and professional life. For the first year and a half it (ablation) was great, I didn’t have another period and no more bleeding problems. But then the constant abdominal pain started and nothing seemed to bring relief.

I was diagnosed with post ablation syndrome where all of the veins in my uterus were enlarged and causing the constant pain. On top of that I began to have severe bladder prolapse. I was advised by three doctors to get a hysterectomy and a bladder sling. I was devastated by this news. Not because I wanted more children. I had four and was done with that part of my life. But I was afraid of surgery, the risks, the changes, and the unknown. In the end, I needed to be pain free and a functioning mother and professional, so I gave in and had the surgery. I had one of the best surgeons in the area.

I stopped feeling like me. I couldn’t recognize myself in my own skin: it was like living in a constant fog filled with sadness, rage, frustration, and confusion. My hormones tanked, even though I hadn’t lost my ovaries they clearly quit working.

There I was, more desperate than I’d ever been, truly at my lowest of lows, afraid I might not ever be me again. My doctor prescribed Lexapro to help take the edge off while we tracked my hormones to determine treatment. One pill was all I took and within two hours I experienced severe nausea, diarrhea, heart racing, weakness in my legs and uncontrollable tremors. I ended up in the emergency room with serotonin toxicity. Afraid to try anything else, and knowing it was hormonal I sought out the doctor who gave me the second opinion about the surgery. Because I was only 39 she was reluctant to try hormone replacement therapy but asked if I would consider a low-dose birth control pill. I agreed. Two weeks into taking the pills and I experienced numbness and weakness in my left shoulder and arm, facial numbness, and chest pain. There I was, again in the emergency room, and this time told I could never take any type of hormones and that I was lucky I didn’t have a stroke and die.

Left with this news, the doctor looked at me and said she didn’t think there was anything that western medicine could do to help me and would I consider trying something different – would I consider acupuncture and herbal medicine? There I was, desperate, and more than desperate I was hopeless. I felt like I had no options. It was try this, or give up life altogether. And that’s when I met Kristen and Eagle Acupuncture. I didn’t think there was anything that she could do for me that others hadn’t tried.

What I’ve experienced, feels to me very much like a miracle. After three treatments I felt the fog lift and felt hope. It took six months, but the difference from when I walked in the door and where I am now is night and day. It’s been more than a year since I had my hysterectomy and even longer since this all started and, I’ve finally found me again. But I don’t believe this was a miracle at all, I believe that what Kristen did was true medicine. She’s a compassionate, caring, educated, and invested women’s health medical provider.

The regret that have today is that I didn’t know enough to start with her – with acupuncture and herbal medicine – and more than that, that none of my doctors told me I had this option to begin with. And, what I don’t want to regret is sharing my story so that other women know they have choices and that acupuncture and herbal medicine are a true medicine that shouldn’t be a last resort or something to be ashamed or afraid of trying. I can truly say that I owe Kristen much more than a thank you, I owe her my life as mother, a wife, an individual, and a professional. It is because of her care and work as a skilled practitioner of acupuncture and herbal medicine that I have my health and life back. I think it’s important that others know this too. Thank you Kristen, for everything.

I just wanted to let you know how totally impressed we are with what Tony has done for us. Tony has converted one of the biggest skeptics, my husband, to a believer in acupuncture. He will no longer suffer with those debilitating episodes with his back that long again. I must admit, I was waiting until allergy season really hit to see if the treatment Tony gave Josh (our son) really worked. Now that the pollen levels for grass (one of his biggest triggers) have reached the extreme levels, Josh is almost a normal human. He is just a little bit stuffy. Given the fact that he is now taking NOTHING for his allergies, this is huge!! He was taking Singulair, Claritin and pseudoephedrine daily, with little relief. He is outside playing golf almost daily, and without having to deal with such severe allergies, he is having a great year! We have literally spent thousands of dollars trying to treat his allergies, and we were considering spending thousands more on allergy shots. I’m so glad that I called you instead!!! Thanks for everything!

I was 42 years old, skeptical about acupuncture, yet desperate to stack any odds in my favor to conceive a healthy child.

Here was my experience with Kristen: I conceived through IVF and acupuncture after having been given a less than 5% chance of becoming pregnant (that was before they only harvested 1 egg, so the odds were in fact, significantly worse).

Kristen was by my side and treated me during the embryo transfer, that was profoundly calming during a high stress situation. She then treated me throughout my pregnancy. I am convinced that Kristen’s treatments are why I have a… miracle daughter. I would highly recommend her or Tony to anyone considering acupuncture.

The short one to have throughout the website in addition: I conceived through IVF and acupuncture after having been given a less than 5% chance of becoming pregnant (that was before they only harvested 1 egg, so the odds were in fact, significantly worse).

Granted, it was only my son’s first visit but we have certainly found our new acupuncture provider. Kristen was engaging, informative, intuitive, patient, kind, caring, and humorous - all things my 7 yr old appreciates. Her knowledge base of Chinese medicine is extensive and I hope to be able to engage her in that topic again. She never hesitated to answer any question my boys had (older brother was with us) and we never felt like she was rushing through our appointment. She even played along with my son’s imagination... he came to the appointment with a cape made from a blanket and a crown he cut and colored for himself. Kristen just embraced it all. We are looking forward to many more sessions with her.

I have known Kristen and Tony for over 15 years, first as students and then as colleagues and friends. In my classes they presented as bright, capable, and motivated young people. They were eager to learn, and willing to apply themselves to gain the knowledge necessary to master the skills of their future profession. They then brought the same hard work and high level of conscientiousness to building a thriving practice and becoming the talented and successful acupuncturists that they are today. As colleagues who are committed to promoting health and well-being, I salute Tony and Kristen for their exceptional efforts. Today they bring an attitude of deep caring and respect for their patients to their work. This adds great power to their medicine and assures them continued success.

My acupuncture work with Kristen Burris has been a critical part of my fertility treatment. Emotionally, her graceful, healing style soothes me during this trying time. Physically, her expert touch has improved and enhanced my well-being. My confidence in both Kristen and my treatment is strong. I am grateful that I have found such a qualified and delightful practitioner in women’s health.

I had acupuncture and Chinese herbs from Kristen that helped me get pregnant after 10 years of trying, helped me to have a wonderful pregnancy with twins, and I absolutely know that going to her for lactation issues is what has made me able to exclusively breastfeed my twins. What you will get from a session with Kristen is the best Chinese medicine/acupuncture and a priceless amount of support and understanding. You can feel how much she really cares for you and she is the epitome of what a healer should be. My husband has also seen Tony for neck and shoulder pain after neck surgery and found relief from the sessions. Would give them 6 stars if that existed!

After struggling with infertility including habitual miscarriage, PCOS, and a cancer scare from western medicine fertility drugs, I sought out Kristen Burris at Eagle Acupuncture. She changed my life. After three months of acupuncture and herbs, my husband and I were pregnant. I sustained a healthy pregnancy and delivery, then gave birth to another son one year later. Bottom line, Eagle Acupuncture is the place for anyone struggling with infertility.

Kristen Burris could not be more invested in helping couples become pregnant. Her commitment to that is surpassed only by her success in making it happen. I can think of nearly a dozen clients who have used her services and who are now very happy parents gratefully welcoming all the stresses and joys parenting brings.
