  • I started seeing Juan over XX years ago following anterior / posterior spinal fusion. His treatments not only helped with my healing but reduced the amount of prescription drugs I took. Now I see him on occasion for a “tune up”. Looking back at my experiences with Juan I truly feel as though he is the one person who is the closest to a healer I have ever met.


  • Neck Pain –
    Wanted her life back!

  • I have used his services to treat conditions such as chronic heartburn, menopausal symptoms, muscle aches, even seasonal allergies – all with very good results. When I encounter any type of condition, my first thoughts go to having Juan treat the problem, before considering a medical doctor. This has proven to be successful many times over the years!


  • I have a herniated disk that gives me problems a few times a year. I am a police officer and to do my job I have to be 100%. After hurting my back, it would usually take 1-2 weeks to get back to normal. After having acupuncture my recovery time is cut in half.


  • Asthma – Couldn’t breathe

  • From the moment I stepped into their office, I knew I was in the right place to get help with my health problems. In addition to the acupuncture treatments and herbs, my acupuncturist counseled me on eating a health, balanced diet that is right for me as well as helped me to view the world as the beautiful place that it really is.


  • At the risk of sounding dramatic, Juan Tejada saved my life. He helped me cure myself of things physical and psychological. I have been asked by friends what the herbs are – I really don’t care. All I know is that I feel XX years younger and look forward to a healthy future – thanks to him. Before I went to him, I really had no opinion of acupuncture. Now, I am an apostle.


  • Broken Bone wouldn’t heal

  • I have tried many different methods of healing over the years for my chronic sinus and digestive problems, and my lack of energy. I had even been to another acupuncturist without success before coming to American Health Acupuncture. Within a few weeks of acupuncture treatments and herbs at American Health Acupuncture, I was a completely new person.
