Chris is an excellent TCM and acupuncture therapy professional. Chris is a great and knowledgeable practitioner and is a thoughtful listener. The office is comfortable and well taken care of. If your new or have experience with TCM, Chris will walk you through every step. Highly recommended!

Having been a client for 2-3 years now, I can confidently say the services and results of routine acupuncture + cupping have been a vital component to my wellness practice. Chris not only creates a comfortable and personal experience but he strives to elevate your well being and experience each and every appointment. I’m grateful to have found such an incredibly healing service and practice!

If I could give Chris ten stars I would. He’s really such a treasure. I feel deeply cared for when I work with him, and he’s an incredibly attentive listener and thorough practitioner. In 2021 I was going through a rather difficult job transition and woke up with so much pain in my neck that I could barely move. I’d never had acupuncture before, and I started seeing Chris that week based on the recommendation of a friend.It worked like a dream. We discovered that I’m pretty sensitive to treatment, so Chris takes it super slow with me and always checks in as he’s placing the needles to see how I’m doing, make sure he doesn’t need to remove anything or adjust it, and just generally is so attentive. He spends time to thoroughly check in and asks after my overall health through a number of wholistic questions about my body, emotions, sleep patterns, etc before getting started at every session. His treatments helped me get through a ragingly stressful and anxiety ridden time and helped me recover, and I’ll be forever grateful that I found him.He’s been so supportive of my overall healing, always answers the dozen questions I have about acupuncture and the body and the points he’s putting in (I love to nerd out on that stuff) and he’s never pushy about moving me farther along than I’m ready to go, so I’ve always felt super safe in his care. When I began seeking out reproductive acupuncture treatment, he acknowledged the limits of his expertise & said that is not his field, and suggested another practitioner. Chris is a true healer who knows that if he’s effective his client will turn up less and less - that’s been true for me and he’s been so wonderfully gracious about it!

Chris is so friendly and warm, making such a personal treatment really comfortable and something I look forward to. He treats the whole person and takes the time to check in on what I might need in each appointment to ensure tailored service. I freaking love acupuncture for the relaxation and wellness benefits and am so so glad I found Chris in Austin!

Chris was incredibly professional and was such a good listener. I was nervous for the process, and he walked me through it and put me at ease. I feel much more relaxed, and will definitely return! Thanks Chris!

I came in for some minor hip pain and overall balancing. Chris was so knowledgeable and was able to connect seemingly other very small things that seemed to have nothing to do with my hip! (Like ear pain). The space was so beautiful and relaxing. I fell into the deepest sleep during treatment... which is not easy for me. I already feel so much better today and I slept for the first time in weeks without taking something to help me fall asleep. I highly recommend going if you’ve been feeling “off”. Chris can find the root cause!read more

I initially sought out acupuncture as an additional method for coping with stress and anxiety and have been blown away by how much I've benefitted from my time at Balance Wellness. I've personally seen improvements in my stress levels, quality of sleep and overall aches and pains. Chris is... incredibly knowledgeable, patient and informative, and I can't recommend him enough!read more

Chris is a PROFESSIONAL! And has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to herbal medicine, acupuncture, and cupping. I've gone to him for 3 consecutive sessions now and have noticed a dramatic decrease in neuropathy/tingling in my right hand pinky, and we've also used cupping to target some tension... in my upper right shoulder/back area. I have enjoyed our sessions so far and will continue to see Chris for his expertise!read more

When having a prolonged episode of sciatica I decided to try acupuncture. After just one visit I felt much better. Chris is an expert and I will definitely see him again for other issues as well. I am no longer fearful of another prolonged (six weeks last time) sciatica attack.

I came to Chris looking to find non prescription options for insomnia, night sweats, stress and anxiety. Within a week I was sleeping so much better, not waking up drenched and my overall stress and anxiety was very manageable! Book an appointment with Chris. You won’t be sorry!

I’ve done acupuncture once before elsewhere, but I did not see results like I did after my session with Chris. Came in for stress relief & some sleep issues and I’ve been sleeping like a baby. It’s interesting to know some issues I’ve been having are all tied together. Definitely check him out! The... cupping is great for any muscular issues you may be having.read more

My friend recommended Chris when I was complaining about some chronic wrist pain. Shortly before I went to meet Chris I pulled a muscle and i couldn't move my neck! When I went to Chris he was very welcoming and explained what treatment he recommended and why.After my first treatment I was able... to move my neck! My wrist feels slightly better, he did explain that an injury (such as my wrist) that's been brewing for 10 years would take longer to recover. Makes sense. After the first treatment I felt AMAZING. I was in a deep relaxing state. I felt a little tired and groggy, but that's not a complain. It was like my body went through massive recovery all in 45 min.read more

Chris has helped me so much with my left side dominant issue. I have a tendency to overcompensate weight when moving merchandise for my job, that it has built up scar tissue. Chris helped me figure out long term exercises and customized my cupping experience.

After my first cupping and acupuncture session with Chris. I walked away so amazing. I have never experienced feelings this great after any chiropractic, cupping or acupuncture session performed by anyone else. I will absolutely be back!

One of the best acupuncture appointments I have had! I walked in with a bad knot in my neck that started to impair my movement and left with full range of motion back. Chris did amazing work!
