Like many others have said, David and his acupuncture practices are like magic. I have had two failed hip surgeries and after my second surgery, not only was I suffering from the original pain in my hip, but also horrible pain in my leg and lower back. When I moved to Seattle I was referred to David for acupuncture- at this point I was willing to try anything to take my pain away. I was a little uneasy at first, but David was calm, caring, and extremely easy to talk to. After only a couple of sessions I could already tell a difference, I was getting better. I have been seeing David for six months now and I can say that my pain level has diminished to almost nothing.
Although I originally came to see David to help with my pain, he has helped me in numerous ways. Feeling lost in a new city, David has been an emotional support system and constant friend. When I came to an appointment feeling sick and stuffy, David had herbs on hand and a treatment to cure my cold. When I confided in him that my husband and I were trying to get pregnant, he told me that he could do acupuncture to promote fertility. And when we found out we were pregnant, David was supportive and full of joy and happiness for us. Throughout my pregnancy, David has been addressing my pain, as well as, offering pregnancy support through acupuncture. I have had a fairly easy pregnancy and I truly believe that it is because of support I have received from David.
David’s care is truly holistic and spiritual. I look forward to seeing him, and after each session I am always in a better mood. I feel like no matter what is ailing me, David can somehow help. Soon I will be leaving Seattle, and although I am overjoyed to move back to the place I called home for 25 years to start my family, I am truly saddened that I will no longer be able to see David for acupuncture treatments. I know I can find another acupuncturist but no one will compare to the treatment I have received with David. He is professional, gentle, compassionate, and full of knowledge on how to energize your life physically and emotionally. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve themselves and feel their best.

David is an amazing practitioner. His style immediately puts you at ease and from the first consultation you know that he genuinely cares about you as an individual. I have been a patient for several months and originally sought help for stress and managing the many demands that come with being a working mom. His approach of treating both the body and the mind helped me gain control of my life in a way I’ve not been able too for many years. After treating with David I’ve felt stronger, think more clearly and am more confident in who I am. I truly feel that David’s treatment has helped me recapture the essence of me. I wholeheartedly recommend David for anyone that is interested in acupuncture treatment.

David is an exceptional person, never mind being a great acupuncturist. He is warm, thoughtful, caring, and he has a passion for what he does.
After waking up without the ability to move my head and neck comfortably a few weeks ago, I was extremely grateful for his help. He used massage to expertly loosen up the knot of muscle in my back before starting in with acupuncture, and I really would have been happy to lay there for the rest of the day when he was done!
He’s also a great resource as a 5 element acupuncturist as he has had extensive training in it, and I trust him over anyone else I know. If you’re not sure what 5 element acupuncture is… call David! He’s great at explaining his work…
I highly recommend David!

David has an incredible gift for the work he shares with his clients. Appointments with him are never rushed. The shared conversation appears to be as important as the actual physical work itself. I am receiving 5 Element Acupuncture treatment for some sleeping difficulties. This was my first experience with acupuncture of any sort and I entered a bit uneasy. David’s remarkable compassion and calm demeanor were immediately visible and paved the way for calming my uneasiness. My sleeping has improved remarkably, but what I didn’t expect was how this treatment could also affect my life in so many other positive ways. I highly recommend David’s services.

The Five Element Acupuncture that David Tucker provided was encouraging and life affirming. David’s treatment was a key ingredient in my being able to stop taking antidepressants. As a person David presents with grace, charm, sincerity and a dash of humor making each session a peaceful and vibrant occasion. As a practitioner David provides care with the pure intention of one truly enamored by what Five Element Acupuncture has to offer each of us. Since beginning Five Element treatment my life has continued to unfold and flow in positive ways.

David listens, understands and cares for your whole mind, body and spirit. How I feel after a session with David is the true testament to his skill and the healing power of his practice. He is a professional with a heart.
I went to him for chronic headaches, bad dreams and mild case of the blues. After my first visit, my dreams were gone. On my second, I left with the biggest smile (which I really needed at the time). On my third, my nasal passages were cleared for the first time in at least a month. Through his acupuncture, acutunics, and massage he has been able to eat away at the tension in my head and upper neck alleviating my headaches. I leave his office with more energy and a smile. I continue to go to him knowing that my health and well being improve through the energy David releases and awakens in myself.

I’ve been seeing David for several months and I cannot say enough good things about him. Just walking in to his office has a calming affect. He is funny and warm and genuine, all the things I look for in a healing practitioner. He is also straightforward and honest. I have felt completely comfortable opening up to him, which is rare since I am normally an extremely private person. He has a way of saying things that resonate with me, so that I often find myself repeating what he has said when I face a difficult situation. Aside from all that, his 5 Element Acupuncture has made an enormous difference in my life. I had been to an acupuncturist before, but the results were nothing like I’ve experienced with David. I’ve seen steady progress in how I feel, how I react to stress and how much my mind and body have come together. I’m so glad I found him!

David helped me kick a 26+ year nicotine habit. I’ve never done acupuncture so I started the treatments with an open but skeptical mind. “Just do the experiment” I told myself. Well, the experiment was a total success. David treats the whole person (physical, spiritual and emotional) not just the symptoms. He was able to ground me and get me ready to quit then helped me every step of the way to a nic-free life. Unlike so many health professionals today, David actually cares and takes the time to truly help.

I first visited David on the recommendation of another patient. I did not have a specific ailment to be treated, but wanted to increase my overall sense of well-being. My sessions with David have enabled me to have more energy throughout the day, and his guidance has helped me establish a better balance in my work and personal life.

David has completely transformed my life. I have had ulcerative colitis since I was fifteen and been to many different doctors and tried many different medicines. Through David’s patience, encouraging words and lighthearted demeanor and using Five Element acupuncture as a conduit, I have reclaimed my independence and never felt better about myself and my body. Before I saw David, I didn’t even know how terrible I felt. I had no energy or tools to help myself find what my body needed to heal. David was able to help me see what I needed to work on in order for my body and mind to heal itself. David has given me the tools to have the freedom and energy to do all the things I used to be able to do and more. David also has this magical way of having you come up with your own solutions that you didn’t even know you had inside of you. He has helped me find ways to speak through my heart and calm my mind and gut. I quite often say to David, “You are magic.” He and acupuncture are magic and I acknowledge him as being instrumental in my physical, emotional and spiritual path to healing.

As an active participant in several injury-prone sports, I found myself with a recurring foot injury. My M.D. prescribed a walking cast and an indefinite amount of rest. Frustrated by this, especially with athletic events looming on the horizon, I was pleasantly surprised when David offered to take a look at my foot and see what he could do to get me back in fighting form. For starters, he spent more time examining my foot than every other health care professional I had seen combined. David then recommended a tandem approach of acupuncture and massage. I had never tried acupuncture before, but he patiently explained (and demonstrated) the process, and we set to work on a rather intensive treatment regimen. Three weeks later, I was able to compete. I don’t believe I would have been capable of that level of performance had I just stayed in the walking boot. I credit David’s expertise in helping me to achieve healing above and beyond the limitations of static rest.
Even though I originally sought treatment for a specific injury, David’s approach intrinsically takes life’s other issues into account. He treats the whole person. I’ll continue to experience David’s combination of acupuncture, massage, and meditation in an effort to manage stress and stay healthy. And of course, the next time I wind up in a cast, I know where my first stop will be..

I started to see David a year and a half ago for no particular reason. Or so I thought. At the time I had a lot on my plate, yet it was so empty. I had just made a cross-country move, leaving family and friends behind and was trying to decide whether or not I wanted to pursue a career in acupuncture myself. I wasn’t paying attention to my intuition, nor caring for myself in a supportive way. I felt very scattered mentally and emotionally, as well as physically detached from what was going on.
David’s treatments gave me the support and guidance I needed to be clear and focused on every level. His approach to providing care based on the 5 Element theory resonated with me. I believe that we, as human beings are interrelated and influenced by the 5 Elements of nature. In addition, I was able to successfully quit smoking after 18 years of numerous unsuccessful attempts. I feel as if I have arrived at a state of true health of spirit, mind and body, unlike I have ever experienced before.
David Tucker is an extremely warm and charismatic facilitator of 5 Element Acupuncture and I’m thrilled to be continuing the journey with him.
