"I never thought acupuncture could do anything to relieve my lower back pain. But after a couple of treatments, I was sold for life. 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. Thanks to American Health Acupuncture I can get back to work protecting our community."

"Juan Tejada has been my Acupuncturist for over seven years and the changes he has brought about in me have been remarkable. I have used his services to treat conditions such as chronic heartburn, menopausal symptoms, muscle aches, even seasonal allergies – all with very good results. To have Juan open his practice in Tucson is of great benefit to residents and visitors alike, and on my quarterly visits to Tucson I look forward to being treated by him."

- Mickey Sulzer


"I have been in the healing arts for over 30 years and have never worked with a healer as powerful as Juan Tejada. He is an extremely competent, compassionate, and accurate healer. He has worked “miracles” on my neck & back pain, herniated disk, circulatory system, immune system, lack of energy, emotional traumas, and depression. He has helped me to gain a renewed sense of strength, courage, love, & understanding of myself and my world. Thank you Juan!"

"The people at American Health Acupuncture are exceptional. 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. There is a beautiful calm and healing energy in their office and the best part is that the fee is so reasonable! I cannot recommend American Health Acupuncture highly enough. I am truly grateful for having found them!"

"A New Way of Living Life. Thank heaven for these true healers! 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 healthy, balanced diet that is right for me as well as helped me to view the world as the beautiful place that it really is. Truly, I can’t thank them enough for all of the care and support they have given me. I absolutely recommend the American Health Acupuncture team to everyone."

"I would love to share with your new patients that you not only offered relief from pain but gave me wise words to live by. I think of your comments daily, which were and are so helpful. You are a true healer and a gentle, caring man. Thank you for being here for me this past winter. You started me onto a releasing program to help my body and mind heal. Thanks Juan."

"I miss getting to see you, but use what you have taught me and hope to return soon. You have helped me so much on this healing journey after all my surgeries. It was one of the best things I ever did for myself was come to American Health Acupuncture! Thank You!"

- Judy Backenkeller


"Your new place is wonderful – so comfortable & relaxing. You are doing wonderful work. And your enthusiasm is contagious (as always). Thank you for welcoming me and helping me with my healing. You are both treasured friends. I can’t imagine where my journey in life would be without your help with navigation. I don’t have a GPS, but maybe I do, you are my GPS. Thank you for your friendship & guidance over the years."

- Love Always, Theresa


"Painless, Effective, and MORE! WOW! I had no idea what to expect, but after my first treatment, I was hooked! Juan and Sherry Tejada at American Health Acupuncture are friendly, professional, and very easy to talk to! The acupuncture and herbs have helped me with my stress levels and inner peace, which in turn has helped with many other issues. I highly recommend them and can’t wait for my next appointment!"

Wonderful staff and amazing experience. I was treated with dignity and respect. I felt better after just one treatment. They've been in business for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else! Thank you for such great care!!

Juan Tejada is the best acupuncturist I've ever been to! He's treated me for hot flashes, migraines, pink eye, muscle pain (back, neck, knee), and more. The atmosphere is so calming and soothing that I find myself not wanting to leave. Within a few needles, he asks me how the pain level is on the migraine, and often after his healing touch and precision with the needles, the pain is gone! I wouldn't recommend anyone else but American Health Acupuncture!

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.

I have been to many healers and acupuncturists. Juan is truly gifted, intuitive, and dedicated. After five months of trying many doctors and healers, I found Juan and Sherry, and within a couple of months my progress is remarkable. Their dedication, love, and nurturing environment is a humble gift they give every day.

Juan and Sherry stand apart from all other practitioners in Tucson. Their healing, guidance, and support has been life-altering. Juan has a unique gift for tapping into the most beneficial healing energy at that moment. Sherry is compassionate and thorough as she shares resources and insights. Their warm greeting brings joy as soon as you walk in. The AHA experience is truly healing on many levels. Without hesitation, I recommend them highly.

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. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Hi, my name is Otilia Baeza and I just want to give my opinion about acupuncture. It has helped me a lot, I have had pain for several years and ever since I’ve been treated by Juan, I feel much better and I thank God and him because I feel much better physically and emotionally. I recommend him 100%. Thousand thanks.

At American Health Acupuncture I have found an alternative to health problems that traditional medicine has not been able to give me, I have managed to feel better and not take as much medicine as before. Sherry and Juan make me feel like I am a special person and that they are always there to help me.

Juan and Sherry make your experience with an acupuncturist exceptional. From the moment that you enter the door, you feel the good vibes and the energy flowing. Thanks to their treatments I was able to stop taking anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxants. Living without pain in a natural way is possible and they helped me achieve it.

Juan and Sherry are very empathetic, and the ambiance is peaceful and serene. Juan is so knowledgeable that he held my wrist the first time and said I have high blood pressure. He was so right! The advice he gave me was to drink more water, with a pinch of salt and the juice of a lime. I take my BP at home and it is starting to go down since I've been following his guidance. I'm a believer!

I am so glad I decided to try acupuncture before having surgery on my shoulder. Could not be happier with the results as well as getting relief from the chronic migraines I have had my entire life. Would recommend Juan to anyone. Juan and Sherry are both warm and friendly people who genuinely care about their customers and go out of their way to make you enjoy the experience.

I experienced more relief after five treatments of acupuncture than I had with months and months of physical therapy. At first, I was cautiously optimistic. Now I'm a believer. It's a wonderful environment and I look forward to my 'tune-ups' and although I could now be on a once a month program - I choose to go once every two weeks. I can't be more pleased with the treatment I've received.

This has been an oasis of hope for me as I attempt to manage symptoms of my autoimmune disorder. Juan and Sherry are so welcoming, and the environment is amazingly peaceful and restorative! The care I have received is comprehensive and personal, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Juan and Sherry are wonderful people, they make you feel welcome with their positive energy that they transmit to you. 7 years ago I was very sick of sciatica and it is amazing how Juan Tejada works the acupuncture, it's wonderful I felt much better from the first session. I continued with my treatment that also helped me to recover my energy, and other problems that it brought. Two days ago I brought my granddaughter who had several health problems that doctors do not know what to do. Acupuncturist Juan Tejada treated her pain with acupuncture (I'm super happy) because on her first visit, the pain improved. My granddaughter has suffered this pain for several months. Thank you very much to Juan Tejada and I highly recommend you.

Juan and Sherry have such a wonderful, healing energy that you begin healing before the session begins. I lived in Arizona 10 years and was so fortunate to have been able to experience Juan's healing acupuncture and energy many times. I remember one time, in particular, where the results were absolutely amazing. I injured my back. I don't go to doctors. But, from what I gathered, I slipped or herniated a disc. The pain was excruciating. I could not get in and out of the car myself. I could not lift my leg to put shoes on or to get dressed alone. It was horrible. I tried massage (I am a massage therapist and truly believe in massage). But massage did not help me enough. I tried chiropractic. But it did not do much either. I decided to try acupuncture. I saw Juan 3 days in a row. After the first day, the pain was worse. After the second day, It was about the same. After the third session, it was completely gone, and the pain did not return for many years after that. It only returned when I re-injured it. Unfortunately, I no longer lived in Arizona. Juan is so intuitive and "clear" and dedicated to helping you that he is able to help your body completely heal, as it should. Thanks Juan and Sherry!

Highly recommend American Health Acupuncture for overall health and increased energy flow. My introduction to American Health Acupuncture was due to digestive and intestinal issues I have been experiencing over the last 16 months (including stress and fatigue). Juan identified my problem areas and provided immediate healing and relief after the first visit. Every visit provides a different healing process and you leave feeling healed, re-energized, serene, and joyful. Juan takes the time to listen to your concerns and/or problem areas and provides insight and healing therapy for the body, mind, and soul. They are thoughtful, caring and willing to share their knowledge. I would highly recommend Juan and Sherry to everyone. Thank you for helping in the healing process and removing the pain!

Juan is a gifted life coach, offering guidance in diet, attitude, and physical exercises, along with the BEST acupuncture in Southern Arizona. Sherry is organized, helpful, and supportive. They're BOTH the BEST--very professional, compassionate, and helpful. You'll be glad you chose them!

A delicate but effective touch with the needles. Their needles put me to sleep every time! AHA also offers herbs and other ways to holistically treat what ails you.
