Your compassionate and positive manner have helped me through the fog of ill health to hope. Your knowledge and intuitiveness have enabled me to feel I have the strength and energy to fulfill my dreams and daily living needs. I don’t hesitate to recommend your services to my family and others because I know they will be treated well.”
I have followed Charlene for so many years. She is the most kind and caring person I know. Her goal in life is take everyone’s pain away. If ever you have any pain in your body this is the person that can help you mind body and sole.”
Charlene is an extraordinary healer, but more than that, she’s down-to-earth, approachable, and very real — all of which I found very refreshing. She listened very closely to my needs as I struggled with food allergies and, through the NAET acupuncture process, we got rid of them together! I highly recommend Charlene!”
As my husband and I were going through the IVF process I learned that acupuncture can greatly help the success rate. I was already a huge fan of Charlene’s acupuncture as she has helped me with allergies, pain and hormone balance so I didn’t hesitate to take every step I could to increase our chances at IVF. I’m so glad I did because now have a beautiful baby boy after our first transfer! Charlene was awesome to talk to about the whole experience because of her knowledge & experience. The acupuncture put me at ease and increased my confidence and faith that my body would respond. There are other acupuncturists in my area but I drive 45 minutes to see her because she is that good.”+488
NAET Treatment – Off inhalers and feeling great
Since I’ve been receiving NAET treatments for my allergies, I have experience dramatic improvement. I can now go outside without suffering from red, itchy eyes and a scratchy throat. But my most severe symptom was not being able to breathe. For the past 8 years I’ve had to use an inhaler to relieve my allergy-induced asthma, but since my treatment started with Charlene, my need for the inhaler significantly reduced and has now ceased altogether. I am now looking forward to breathing freely next spring! Thank you, Charlene.”
Goodbye headaches and No More Prilosec
For the past two years I have been bothered by low back pain, shoulder pain and acid reflux. For the past 46 years I have had a headache every day. I had been to doctors and taken all kinds of medications. I had also been to a neurologist and a chiropractor for ten years but still had my headaches. They would get so bad I would vomit and sometimes had to miss work. I finally gave up on any help, believing I would just have to live with the headaches for the rest of my life. I had also been taking Prilosec every day for two years.
It was apparent after my first acupuncture treatment that something in my body had changed. My headache was completely gone for 48 hours, and I have not taken Prilosec since my first treatment that was four weeks ago now. My shoulder pain continues to lessen with each treatment. I received excellent care from Charlene and Lara (Lara was my partner but now she’s a full time mommy.)”
Charlene is empathetic, a good listener, kind and caring. She truly wants all her patients to get well. I feel like she is the first health care professional who really gets it with thyroid disorders. Just to know that you are heard makes such a difference. Give Charlene a try and you will find that even the needles don’t hurt when she applies them.”
Excruciating Coccyx Gone…After Just One Treatment
I had the occasion to meet Charlene Lincoln of MDI a year ago. I had been in an auto accident and substained a coccyl injury causing much pain.Western M.D. ordered pain medication of which I did not receive any relief. After consulting with Charlene,I received accupuncture and the pain was completely gone. after one treatment. Recently I saw Charlene for upper arm pain. after two treatments,pain is gone and such relief for me. I highly recomend Charlene for her expertice.”
Desperate and Skeptical Pain Sufferer
Thank you so much for all your help and patience in getting me back on my feet and prepared for normal life again! I don’t think I have truly expressed to you how desperate I was before we had our first visit. I was in physical therapy for months and I had been through several series of injections in my thoracic spine and neck and I was still experiencing limited range of motion and an ever increasing amount of pain. This was the type of pain that causes hopelessness and depression. I felt like the only pain management system I had to consider was medication and that medication was narcotic based and making me sick.
I really was to the point where I was considering surgery as a treatment option when my doctor suggested that I try acupuncture. I could not believe a Stanford sports medicine doctor would actually suggest such a thing and I did not call to make an acupuncture appointment until my next visit with the doctor. He asked me why I had not made the appointment and I told him I couldn’t see how needles stuck into areas that were already hurting would help and I didn’t think it was a legitimate form of treatment. Truth is I had no clue of the true nature of acupuncture and all I could imagine was lying on a table with a bunch of needles sticking in me and frustratingly waiting for something to happen, and nothing happening?! Well, this could not be further from reality. My ignorance and skepticism about this practice prolonged my actual healing process and I regret not seeing you sooner. After our initial visit I knew I was at the right place and with someone who could help me!
By the time I actually made the acupuncture appointment I was in a lot of pain. This pain stemmed from herniated disks, muscle spasms, trigger point issues, bone spurs, muscle fatigue and weakness, inflamed bursa, and limited range of motion. I was weak, hurting, irritated, frustrated, and desperate.
My first appointment started with a very comfortable comprehensive interview process and evaluation during which time you explained to me how you were going to treat me. I remember you were so positive about this treatment making feel better and yet I was still skeptical? To my surprise the treatment started with massage therapy which included several techniques of deep tissue, relaxation, and then progressed into acupuncture. I didn’t even notice the needles and I still pay little attention to them. After our first session I was feeling better!
I know I could have not made it to this level rehabilitation without your treatment and I told this to the doctor at my last visit. I just could not imagine a future without taking medication to treat the pain. Now I am getting stronger and look forward to my workouts. With your help I am no longer taking medication and I now have a positive outlook on getting back to work, my normal activities, and a manageable life. Thank you!”
Well versed in several modalities
- Capable of “being” with all my health challenges (meaning, most practitioner’s have their own ‘stuff’ and react to me, and the experiences I’ve been through. I can count on one hand the practitioners who have created a safe space where I can truly be myself, and not have to manage and maneuver around what comes up for the practitioner, when working with me.)
- An advocate, who supports higher healing, searching and providing resources to enhance the healing that she provides with her own talents.
- Provides a healing space not just for physical/medical symptoms, but for emotional and mental healing as well.
An EFT session with Charlene brought me to a transforming experience. The insight from a unconscious trauma was suddenly recalled – something I’ve searched for three decades was able to surface in part, because of Charlene’s ability to intuitively know what needed to be expressed, her compassion, lack of judging and personal depth made it safe for me. And of course her seasoned expertise in several modalities allowed me to let her direct rather than feeling I needed to control or direct her, (a sense of trusting her and her expertise) as I have with most practitioners (because they didn’t understand or because They were trying to control me / limit me because of their narrow view of how they saw me.)”
Back Pain Gone After 40 Years
When I was a 21 year old college student, I suffered 2 cracked vertebrae in my lower back in an automobile accident. At the time the doctor said there wasn’t anything that could be done other than to “deal with it.” For the last 40 years I’ve dealt with back pain on a more or less daily basis.
I have a long commute, spending from 45 to 90 minutes driving each way, depending on traffic. At the end of the commute, I was very stiff and it would take several minutes before I could stand up fully and walk without a fair amount of pain. If I over-exerted myself doing yard work or other physical activity, I would pay the price of a stiff, painful back for several days. Just standing for too long was a painful experience. When I first saw Charlene, it was for a different matter, but after discussing my issues with her, she decided to treat my back pain. It was my first acupuncture treatment. I’m very open to alternative (for most Americans) treatments, but the results of this one treatment were totally unexpected.
Within a few hours of the treatment I noticed that the “background” pain I experienced all the time was greatly reduced. The next day my back pain was virtually gone. I had no idea how much pain I had been carrying around day-to-day until it was gone! I would say the pain reductionafter just one treatment was on the order of 95%.
That first acupuncture treatment was 3 months ago, and I am still virtually pain free. While not exactly looking forward to my long commute, at least my back no longer bothers me when I get to work. I can workout without pain in my back. Standing or sitting for long periods of time is no longer painful. Most importantly, the constant, low level of pain I had been unknowingly dealing with for 40 years is gone. The quality of my life has improved immensely.
I cannot recommend Charlene highly enough. She is thoroughly professional, but is sensitive to the needs of her clients. She has the gentle, sure touch of someone who totally understands her art, and knows how to apply it for the maximum benefit of her client. You will not be disappointed when you allow Charlene to treat you.”
NAET Treatment- Allergies to foods gone…pain relieved
I had been suffering from allergies for 15 years when I came to Charlene for Acupuncture. It had taken a lot of allergic reactions to determine that my worst reactions come from: molds, lemons, raspberries and broccoli. My symptoms were so severe that I was hospitalized several time.
It was after the first ten treatments that I was able to start eating my favorite foods again. I feel great and I’m having no symptoms of my allergies. I also had constant burning back pain for 20 years and finger soreness for a year that made my work very difficult. Those pains have also resolved quickly with my acupuncture treatments. Thank you for helping me with these challenging health issues!”
I have been seeing Charlene for a month and have felt better then I’ve ever felt in the last year and a half. I feel less anxious and less stressed and happier!”
NAET Treatment- She got her life back after severe hives outbreaks
I developed hives all over my body so severly that I could no longer stand to have anything on my skin. I went to the top hive experts and all they could offer me is steroid medications which made me gain weight and feel tired and still did not stop the hives but only minimized it. I was so frustrated and disabled by this that I contemplated taking my own life. I met with Charlene and her partner Lara and they assessed my situation. Both felt I was having an allergic reaction to something I was exposed to on a daily basis. We started Naet and within the 5th treatment my hives cleared and have not come back. I owe them a lot for giving me my life back.”
Back Pain gone after a year of non-stop pain
I was in excruciating back pain for over a year when I started working with Charlene. I work in a hospital and other then pain killers that somewhat dulled the pain there was nothing they could do. It bothered me day and night and made me miserable. After my first treatment with Charlene my back pain was completely gone. It felt like a miracle. I tell everyone I know about her and my experience with acupuncture.”
Pregnant after 2 years of trying
My husband and I had been trying for 2 years to have a baby with no luck. I had never tried acupuncture before but a co-worker convinced me to come to her acupuncturist. I met with Charlene and she gave me an acupuncture treatment which I am surprised how much it relaxed me. But the biggest surprise was that 2 weeks later I had a positive pregnancy test and 9 months later gave birth to my beautiful daughter. I can’t thank you enough!”
NAET Treatment- Resolved Painful Endometriosis and Infertility Issues
I suffered from pretty severe endometriosis. Every month my abdomen would swell up and I looked like I was 6 months pregnant. It was frustrating and painful and was not allowing me to get pregnant. I met with Charlene and her partner Lara and we started NAET treatments. I found out I was allergic to a lot of foods I was eating and was sensitive to pollens and molds and other things in my environment and certain hormones. I was treated for 7 months, working with them to clear all these allergies with NAET and acupuncture. They were so kind and careing and I really looked forward to my treatments even though I have a really hectic work schedule. In that time I found out I was pregnant. It was the best news my husband and I could get. We now have a beautiful daughter. Thank you for giving me the chance to be a mom.”
Chronic Burning hands and feet and Insomnia Relieved
Charlene Lincoln is a life saver! I had chronic burning hands and feet which constantly woke me up at night.5 specialists at Kaiser were of no help to me. After a few treatments with Charlene the burning had backed off enough so I could sleep the whole night thru with no problem. I am still able to sleep 1 year later so the cure lasted. Charlene also taught me EFT tapping technique which I use on my self and this technique has reduced my stress tremendously. Don’t take my word …Ask around. You will get the same recommendation from others.”

NAET Treatments-Health and Vitality Restored
Dear Charlene, Thank you for guiding me on the journey to regaining and sustaining my health. I especially appreciate you taking the time to get to know me. Your compassionate and positive manner have helped me through the fog of ill health to hope. Your knowledge and intuitiveness have enabled me to feel I have the strength and energy to fulfill my dreams and daily living needs. I don’t hesitate to recommend your services to my family and others because I know they will be treated well.”
Not only pregnant but feeling Great
I started seeing Charlene when I was trying to get pregnant with my 2nd child. I knew my body wasn’t as balanced as it used to be and had heard great things about acupuncture for fertility. Little did I know that going in for fertility treatments actually balanced all my hormones and endocrine system, making me feel better than I had in years and helped me to achieve the pregnancy I desired and sustain it. I wish I had know about acupuncture with my first pregnancy, as Charlene has really helped alleviate many of the pregnancy symptoms that aren’t as fun like nausea, back pain, headaches, etc.”
Postpartum bladder issues relieved
Charlene is a gifted and compassionate healer! After the birth of my daughter, I was unable to release my bladder for 12 days. In addition to having a catheter for almost two weeks, I developed a bladder infection. Caring for my daughter during those first few weeks while I was in such rough physical shape was terrible. My OB and the nurses at the hospital were stumped as to what was causing my condition, as I had a completely natural and drug free child birth. I was sent to a specialist who also was stumped. I was completely miserable. Desperate to get my body back, I visited Charlene. I called Charlene at the clinic, and she fit me into her schedule immediately. I was welcomed into her lovely treatment room, and I was instantly impressed with Charlene’s kind demeanor and attentiveness. Charlene’s acupuncture treatment immediately relaxed me and made my body feel better. She treated me two more times in the following five days, and finally I was able to release my bladder! I am convinced it was Charlene’s treatment of my bladder and urinary tract that expedited my healing. I would recommend Charlene to anyone who was pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or who has issues postpartum.”
Painful knee pain relieved quickly
I’d had five cortisone injections, one arthroscopic meniscus repair, and three hyaluronic acid injections in my knee, yet I was still experiencing pain, sometimes severe, after even moderate activity. After a long, very painful, sleepness night, I decided to try acupuncture as a last resort. A friend recommended Charlene Lincoln. I walked into Charlene’s treatment room with severe pain in my knee that had expanded to my quadricept. To my amazement, after about an hour’s treatment, almost all the pain was gone. Acupuncture can’t solve the structural problems in my knee, so I continue to get follow-up treatment from Charlene as pain begins to flair up again. I’ve found that the pain management Charlene provides allows me to enjoy the quality of life I desire, and I’m no longer considering a knee replacement.”

Hip Surgery Cancelled
Charlene’s expertise exudes in her presence, her Spirit. When I first met Charlene I was scheduled for a total hip replacement. My mobility was limited and hopelessness predominated. Charlene skillfully and confidently embraced my ‘dis-ease’ and within a few treatments movement, flexibility, and circulation returned to my hip and leg. The surgeon was amazed and surgery was cancelled! Health is restoring not only in my body but also my mind – Charlene’s conversation was also key in this process. Thank you, Charlene, for your healing and loving touch.”
