"Erin Telford's healing techniques have totally changed my physical and mental being. She made me understand that my health is a series of puzzle pieces and they all must align for wellness. Her passion and clear dedication for her craft is ever present and unwavering. I was "into" health and wellness for many years previous to having Erin as my doctor- however no one/nothing made the impact like her. I have a chronic illness that I now know how to manage and improve- this is an invaluable asset to my life. I recommend Erin to anyone who wants to change their life through health."
"I knew Erin was right for me because she just kept showing up in my daily life. Links, articles, Twitter, Facebook…I tried to ignore her and failed! My receiving acupuncture involves hopping on a train from my suburban Philadelphia home to NYC twice a month. I literally have to journey to her services. And it's 100% worth it. Hours on a train, navigating NYC streets, wait times, platforms, and extra dollars…100%. Worth. It.
I came to Erin desperately seeking treatment for my severe cystic acne. I wept during our first session together, which talked little about acne and lots about the other things going on in my life. I was ignoring my body's many signals and letting my mind chatter away constantly. Working with Erin has helped to me to use food as medicine, to be present in my body, to actively quiet my mind, and to take note of my body's cues. I'm amazed at what I notice when I really, truly listen to the signals my body has been sending all along. Acupuncture is just the first, most obvious step in the rich and joyful path Erin will help you travel.
My skin is clearer, my attitudes toward food have shifted, my marriage is happier (I swear, it's true!), and my body is finally being heard. My intellectual life is finally making room for being present, actively doing nothing, and paying attention to my body's needs -- all with Erin's supportive voice to guide these changes.
I recommend Erin to everyone I know, without reservation. No matter what ails you, Erin should be part of your cure."
"Erin's presence is magical. Her commitment to one's recovery spiritually, physically and from the emotional hurts makes me a believer. Erin is a rising star in the holistic medical field. Bravo."
"The energy and experience I've had at Radiant Heart Acupuncture is one I've NEVER experienced throughout my travels in search of inner peace and calmness. My search ended 8 months ago when I decided to give acupuncture a try. I've suffered from Trichotillomania for many years and I can thankfully say, through acupuncture, Erin has helped me find the source to release the unnecessary pressures in my brain. After so many doctors, medications and years of unsuccessful treatments, acupuncture has helped me manage my stress. Erin has the skills to unlock the pressures in our mind and redistribute the energy throughout our body and soul. I highly recommend and want to tell everyone about Erin. She is the GREATEST acupuncturist and I've been blessed to work with her."
"Erin does a great job with me. I'm just about as sensitive as it gets. I'm also a bit new to acupuncture and rarely is there a time that I can do more than a small handful of needles. What she can do with just three or four needles is really miraculous. You'd never know I went to her feeling mediocre, a bit crunchy, tense, foggy...because I left feeling absolutely vibrant, warmed, rooted and even a bit like I was on cloud nine. I walked about twenty or so blocks downtown because the fresh winter air, which had previously felt intrusive and shocking, now felt divine. The whole time walking--and for the rest of the evening--I had a sly smile across my lips like I was feeling something in the air (and in my body) was a special secret just for me. I recently left my job and have no healthcare, and Erin is my one regular "healthcare" expense--worth every last penny."
"I highly recommend Erin. She is attentive, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. She has been able to heal minor ailments I have had in just in a few treatments. Erin changed my life."
"I recommend Erin to anyone looking for a change in their life. I have been lucky enough to see her on a regular basis for 2 years now and she is a gem. She has a very strong yet calming presence and she will take your best interests to heart without any judgement. Through acupuncture she has guided me to become a more aware, grateful, and happy person.
The physical and emotional differences I have seen in my life since being treated by her are remarkable. I have a much clearer sense of my habits, my strengths, my relationships and my body. I recommend her to anyone and everyone I know.
Erin is genuine, giving and honest. She provides an open and safe environment where true healing can happen."
"I had tried acupuncture before with lukewarm results when I happened to stumble upon the Radiant Heart Acupuncture Gilt City offer. Since my husband and I were still struggling to conceive I decided to give it a try. I was more than pleasantly surprised. Erin is warm, attentive, thoughtful and genuinely cares about achieving results. Each treatment was more than just acupuncture for me. It was time to speak from the heart and have someone listen and be present. Erin would remember our conversations and come to the next visit with new ideas and consult with her mentor on new ways to work with me.
When I began the treatments I was looking for some overall better well being, maybe a less stressed feeling and a more open mind and body to hopefully, become pregnant. I really began to enjoy my treatments. I felt more relaxed and calm after each one and felt that feeling permeate into my personal and professional life. Most importantly, I did become pregnant without medical procedures. I would and have recommend Erin to friends and family and will continue to see her throughout my pregnancy and beyond."
"Last winter I started having severe panic attacks as well as other health problems. I was seeking treatment through hospitals and physicians but they all seemed mystified by my ailments. I felt helpless and scared. A friend recommended seeing Erin Telford as she had worked with her and thought that perhaps acupuncture was the answer.
I had met Erin before but on seeing her again at her beautiful office I felt at ease. I shared with Erin my concerns as well as what I would like to work through in acupuncture. Within the first session I felt a wave of calm as well as safety. I had let my anxiety subside and I began to feel like myself again. After a few more sessions my panic attacks went away all together. Every once in a while I can tell I need an acupuncture tune up to help with my sleeping. Last night following her treatment was the first time I slept in 3 days! Erin is an amazing healer. Her talent and good energy is a blessing."
"I have been a regular client of Erin's for a year. Each week she dedicates the hour we have together to understanding exactly what is going on with my mind, body and spirit ... and then creates a treatment to address any issues I may be having or maintain the balance I am feeling. She ensures a sense of comfort and calm, allowing me to leave each week feeling more centered. Her practice is truly a whole body therapy!"
"I talk to everyone I know about my delightful friend Erin and her unparalleled acupuncture prowess, but really she's incredible. I used to go to my acupuncture appointments, all tense shoulders, hopping mad or on the verge of tears (it was very trying summer) and exit purring like a pussycat. The girl is THAT good."
"I first met Erin when I was experiencing some anxiety and depression and some major stomach problems. She came recommended by my boss who could not say enough great things about her. It was not the best time in my life. It's been two years now and I highly recommend her if you are in search of an amazing, kind, competent professional acupuncturist. I have no doubt that it works and that Erin has helped me a great deal!"
"Erin is honestly a miracle worker. After going off the pill I experienced an avalanche of PCOS symptoms. I tried some things on my own-- upgraded my diet, exercise, and supplements, but it wasn't until started seeing Erin that I got back in the flow. She was even able to start my menstrual cycle for me on two separate occasions! She creates such a safe, calm space where I can really relax and let go. Also, her intake process is so thorough that she catches things I never even thought about! I'm constantly impressed by with her vast amount of knowledge of both eastern and western medicine. Really, I'm just so thankful to have Erin in my life. She's a true superstar."
"I came to Erin because I was having muscle spasms and pain in my chest due to a hypothyroid condition. I cannot really describe how I felt when I left -- but it was a good high feeling! I definitely feel more "centered" as well as relaxed and open. My chest feels particularly open, my shoulders less tense and, I know this is an odd way to describe it, but the whole area just feels BIGGER, which is the EXACT opposite of how I feel when I am having muscle pain.
Thank you again for the experience and introducing me to acupuncture!"
"Erin is a highly intuitive healer and I absolutely recommend working with her. Many people think of pain relief when they think of acupuncture. I came to Erin with emotional goals. If I was lacking self-esteem or I wanted to be more centered, she would focus our session on self-love and grounding. She created a space where I felt that I could be honest and vulnerable about my emotions. This made the treatments more powerful because she could meet me where I was. After our sessions I feel incredibly present and able to take on the world. I also carry a lot of tension in my shoulders. After my first session with her, it felt like I'd had ten massages in a row! It astonished me how my muscles were able to relax so quickly! If you're looking to treat yourself to something really special, I wholeheartedly recommend her. She is a gentle spirit and truly gifted!"
"I wanted to say thank you for starting me out on this journey, for helping me to believe I would be able to get pregnant, and for being such a great and positive influence on my health and fertility. I honestly know that it wouldn't have happened without you giving me the information I needed to start charting and following my cycles, understand what was going on with my body, and treating me with the herbs and the acupuncture to set things right. I feel so lucky to have found you when I did."
"Erin is amazing! I was on birth control for 17 years and unable to go off because I suffer from ovarian cysts. Doctors have been telling me for years that the only way to not get cysts is to stay on birth control. Many times, I have tried to go off birth control and would always end up in the emergency room because the pain was so bad. After going to see Erin, I was able to successfully go off of the pill and not get any cysts. I am so grateful for her!"
