Reviews

No one treatment modality works for every patient.

Many physicians are educated by their patients on how effective acupuncture has worked for conditions that have been limited to various treatment options, refractory to medications or failed conventional therapies.

I am very grateful for the time patients took out of their busy day to leave reviews to share their experience.

Many patients have entrusted us to be a part of the healing process to find  some relief and normalcy from their pain…And for that I am truly appreciative.

Acupuncture is not a cure all or a magic bullet and does not work for every patient.

But, if you are in pain and have not tried acupuncture before then I guarantee  you will wish you tried it a long time ago.

Having suffered from an automobile accident in 2010 and enduring the physical strains of being a mail carrier for the US Postal Service the last 32 years, I have developed moderate to severe osteo arthritis in my knees, lower back and shoulders. The pain at times was so overwhelming I slept in a reclining chair for months. Since coming to The Healing Arts Health Center my pain and quality of life is tremendously better. Shaheed is right on point with my pain management. He is professional and knowledgeable and always knows exactly how to calm my pain down. If you haven’t tried the cupping you should, I love having it right after my acupuncture treatment. I also want to say his staff is great, they are always pleasant, friendly and accommodating. Thank you Shaheed!!!!

Shaheed has helped eliminate the pain from my carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands, due to pregnancy and overuse of hands.  My chiropractor referred me here after my neurologist said physical therapy, acupuncture, and massage would not help.  I, too, was skeptical that needles in my legs would cure the pain in my hands.  I started out with two visits in a week, then once a week, then once every two weeks.  It is fascinating to see that he will put the needles on different spots–on my hands, legs, ears–to see which points are the most receptive.   I feel better a LOT better –it doesn’t hurt to open a jar or turn the doorknob or use the mouse on my computer; and the treatment has lasted between visits! 

He is very knowledgeable, easy going, answers my questions, friendly, professional, and just a nice guy.  He is really likeable and has a pleasant bedside manner. I recommend wearing pants that can roll up and comfortable clothing since you are resting for a good 45-60 minutes with the needles and drinking water afterwards.  He even agreed to treat me for tightness in my traps at no extra charge! I am very pleased to have him provide me treatment.

HAHC Review

Hip Pain

Shaheed has performed not only acupuncture, but cupping and massage to help alleviate the chronic pain in my hip. I look forward to my weekly visits. Shaheed and his staff truly care about your well being. This is much better than pain medication that alters your being.

Migraines

I look forward to my treatments with Shaheed as I am ever hopeful that Accupuncture WILL work. I have suffered with migraines for about 10 years now and medical management has not worked. The atmosphere is very relaxing after a long day at work. Thank you for all you and your staff do.

Amazing Results

The treatment was outstanding and really helped with my chronic pain in my knee and elbow. Excited to see how it helps in my everday schedule and would love to do acupuncture on a continous basis if needed.

Bad Neck, Bad Back, Bad Head

After years of pain and finally getting the Ok from Kaiser I sought out Shaheed. It took awhile to find him but I did. Anyway I am feeling great! I feel energized and able to move again. Thanks for the treatments and cupping. It turned out to be a life saver for me. I especially love the bruising and the explaining after to friends and family.

Acupuncture keeps me in the Saddle!

This is no joke! I have two herniated discs in my lower back and I compete in Endurance rides (25-35 miles) on my Arabian horse. I accredit the fact that I am able to compete on a regular basis to the acupuncture treatments that I first got from Dr. Dinesh, and now am receiving from Shaheed. Anytime my sciatica acts up, I can be assured that with the combination of cupping and acupuncture, I will be back in the saddle by the weekend!

Healing Arts Health Center's Gong Fu is Very Strong

As one drives up to the clinic there is ample door to door service parking. Upon entering the pristine facility one encounters the warm friendly smiles of Leslie, the helpful office manager. Also greeting you upon entrance is the fountain statue of a Buddha, often bubbling in ethereal tranquility. The comfortable waiting room is replete with valuable reading material, a prosperous plant, and drinking water (not that I have ever spent very much time there; service is pretty expedient). So far, in my mind, these were all immediate indications of being in the right place. The friendly office staff then escorts you to one of the many treatment rooms where you will be most comfortable. Perhaps you will enjoy treatment seated in a Lazboy chair, or laying upon a massage table. I personally often deliver my elaborate patient narrative from the Lazboy, and then migrate to the massage table for receiving acupuncture. Acupuncture in the Lazboy was a unique experience (definitely East meets West). After being escorted to my treatment room; where I organized my thoughts about how to best communicate that which I was experiencing; I was soon greeted by one of the most humble; genuine; respectful; unassuming; polite; educated; sincere; caring; professional; knowledgeable; compassionate; quality; down to earth; consummate professional health care practitioners walking the Earth- Shaheed Abdullah. This man's thorough understanding, comprehension, and implementation of Chinese medicine is un-matched in my search, findings, and previous experience. His bed side manner; listening skills; intelligence; wit; orientation toward results; passion for his profession; sincere interest in his patients; and providing the very best of care; is revealed every step of the way! Shaheed's art form of the "Rapid Recovery Method" has considerably mitigated my pain levels and the fluctuations thereof, with increasingly improved range and tolerance. He keeps me on my feet, and in the gym. I am now able to progress through my physical therapy exercises, and even augment with weight training again (Yeeeaaahh!!). My acupuncture treatments generally last between 45 and 60 minutes, this is not including my patient narrative, which is often especially loquacious. If you are ready to feel better, facilitate and expedite your body's natural healing process, and require the best care available. I encourage you to schedule an appointment at Healing Arts Health Center in San Diego : ) I wish I were a professional athlete or famous actor, so that this review may have more clout, but I am just a satisfied everyday UCSD student : ) !

It’s no secret that my back is in really bad shape. Abusing it for the 40 years I’ve been alive seems to be coming full circle in the last 18 months. 
With the help of Shaheed and the Healing Arts Health Center, I feel much better and this allows me to continue to keep up with my family and work. 
Id like to thank HAHC for taking the time (in the past and today) to get me in at the last minute and treat me like their most valued customer. It’s a rare quality these days. 
Thanks and see you soon.

Dr. Shaheed, I don't know if you remember me, but you treated me when I was back in California, since then I have moved to Chandler Arizona. A couple of things I miss from California, the weather and your expertise. Thank you for how you helped me, I wish that I could still see you for maintenance. I have seen quite a few acupuncturists throughout my lifetime, and you doctor, are the best

Best of luck in the future.

His office has the right atmosphere. He is very professional. The procedures seem to be working. The numbness and tingeling seems to be going away slowly. After each visit I feel more relaxed. I know that only 5 visits will not be enough, But it seems to be working. The best part about Acupuncture is you dont feel the needles and it realy relaxes me. I hope to have more visits and alow the procedure to work to its fullest.

Professional - Caring

This was my first visit and enjoyed both the massage and the acupuncture treatment (my first experience of this kind). the environment is well designed and furnished. Both the massage therapist and acupuncturist were professional and caring. I intend to go back.

Feng shui approved! Great customer service! Comfortable, Relaxing and Warm.

Acupuncture can be scary but Shaheed makes it a breeze.

He is very professional and gentle.

He continuously asks questions to make sure you’re comfortable while he’s doing acupuncture and cupping.

He treated my allergies, back/neck pains and boosted my energy all at once!

We did cupping for the neck and back pains which felt like a luxurious massage!

I’ve already booked my next service in 2 weeks!

Thanks Shaheed for all that you’ve done! See you soon.

Hips we’re sore from standing for long hours at work and cycling; now I’m healed again by Shaheed!

He has magical hands and so much knowledge.

I love going in every two weeks for acupuncture.

I’ve done cupping too!

I plan on cupping every 1-2 months for a good detox or sore back.

I would recommend Shaheed to anyone.

Testimonials

Excellent MLD Massage


I have a condition that requires regular manual lymphatic drainage massages. I had a difficult time finding a good, trained massage therapist. I called your office and it was confirmed that one of the therapists was familiar with this massage. When I came for my appointment, the massage therapist did an EXCELLENT job!!! Can't wait to come back!! Thank you!!
