Thanks to Quinn (Doctor of Oriental Medicine) and O2 trainer Chris, i have eliminated three
western prescriptions that i had been taking for years :)

Treatments with Quinn have helped me walk better, relax more, sleep better, helped my
urination and PSA levels have come way down.  Quinn’s manner and demeanor are excellent.  I
recommend others to him because I feel much better after a treatment.  Quinn and his staff are
very knowledgeable and we have always had good experiences here.    
–Bobby M

I feel better than I have in years.  I have lowered my cholesterol 88 points and brought my blood
pressure down to a normal range with the help of The Center and Quinn.  I have more energy,
less stress, and less anxiety.  The next step is to eliminate or reduce the medications I have
been taking for years.  I would absolutely recommend Quinn!  Actually my husband is one of his
new patients!  Quinn is kind, easy to talk to and actually quite funny!  
-Sandy C.

The visits have helped in the reduction of illness.  My quality of life has improved a lot.  Stress,
anxiety and sadness have been reduced.  Pain has been alleviated as well. Quinn is excellent.  I
always felt comfortable and well taken care of.  I recommend others because I think it’s an
excellent service that combines the mind and body and can help improve many aspects of
someone’s health.
-Cindy W.

It has been an exceptional experience!  I look forward to each visit.  They have made a
significant physical difference in my stomach area.  Migraines have been less along with length
and degree of pain and there has been and overall energy surge.  The visits and “chats” have
certainly made me reflect on how I need to better manipulate my environment to reduce stress.  
The whole experience since being here has truly put me in a better state of health and mind.  I
am beginning to look at life in a different mirror.  Thank you!
-Peg C.

These visits add immeasurably to my overall commitment to physical and emotional health. They
have contributed to an overall health plan and have added balance and mindfulness to my
practice.  I am more aware and experiencing less stress, anxiety and fewer heart palpitations.  
Quinn is excellent!  He is very sensitive, knowledgeable, and intuitive.
-Kathy S.

I feel much more in control of my health and I feel a lot better.  The herbs have helped a lot.  I
feel less stressed and my digestion system feels a lot better.
-Laura S.

My visits here have reduced pain so I can engage in the life activities I want to.  I am starting to
be able to get back to exercising which is important to me and my overall health.  Quinn was
very helpful and attentive to details of problems I’ve had.  I have recommended others because
they listened to issues and developed a treatment plan.  As a result, I saw improvements.

For the first time in years, I actually feel like I’m getting better, not just numbing the problems
with meds.
-Rebecca D.

I am truly grateful for how I feel. I have been seeing Dr. Quinn for one year I believe.  I have
been treated for sciatica, hot flashes, shoulder pain, head aches, sinus issues, acid reflux,

an exceptional practitioner and I am so grateful for your care and expertise.

have as positive as an experience as I have had.

“My visits to The Center has helped me achieve my health care goals by making me pain free
and making me aware of how to remain that way.  I have been some impressed with some of the
herbal remedies that I have purchased them for my friends.  The Quali-Spray is a first-aid kit
must have.  My health has dramatically improved and through Quinn’s guidance and patience I
have begun to understand my body and it’s weird and wonderful ways.  Quinn has a wonderful
way of making you feel instantly comfortable.  I was like going to visit and old friend rather than
my health practitioner.  I have and will continue to recommend The Center and Quinn.   I am so
thankful to Quinn for helping me to understand how all my nagging ailments were related and
how I could prevent future occurrences.”

with myself.

M.J.- Treated for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and fibromyalgia
An excellent acupuncturist!  I have been to several other acupuncturists in Raleigh before
finding Quinn.  I am completely satisfied with my care here.  He seems to be much more
comprehensive and invested in my well being.

T.C. –Treated for frozen shoulder
I was told by my orthopedic physical that it would take 1-2 years and a lot of physical therapy for
my shoulder to have normal function.  I accomplished this with Quinn in 4 visits in a 2 week
I am no longer in constant pain.  My mood is better.  I am sleeping better.  I have resumed my
normal activities.
Quinn is gentle, friendly, and patient.  He happily answers questions.  He treats me with
respect.  He is very knowledgeable and shares his wisdom.
I would recommend Quinn to others.  There is healing to be found.

Quinn is very pleasant and came across to me as a sincere and humorous gentleman.  
I would and have recommended Quinn.

The results of Quinn's treatments have been almost immediate.  The pain I have experienced
has diminished in half or more.  I have more energy and feel more alive.  The time he gives to
my emotional state has also been helpful.  I have had acupuncture before, but Quinn seems to
go deeper in his treatments and as a result, is more effective.
I have had 5 treatments with Quinn and my health has definitely improved my quality of life.  I am
not in so much pain and have more energy.

-Suzy M.
Dr. Quinn Akira Takei is excellent!  He is kind, great listener, and caring,
professional and highly competent at what he does. I recommend him to
others because of the results!  I was having severe bowel problems-
‘dysmotility’ and non-functioning.  After suffering more than 20 years and
seeing many medical doctors with no remedy.  Within several weeks of
acupuncture my bowels started working again.  Dr. Takei accomplished in a
couple months what the other doctors did not with all the meds, enemas,
and various therapies over a 20 year span.  I am so grateful!!!
-Shellie B.
The Center has decreased the frequency and intensity of my daily
headaches.  I have been able to concentrate more on school and work
instead of my daily pain.  My practitioner, Quinn, gave me the one on one
attention and listened to my physical and emotional pain that all play in a role
in my headaches.  The environment is extremely relaxing and I recommend
others to Quinn because the treatments have truly helped me live a healthier
-Lauren W.
My main goal for coming here was to overcome food allergies and reduce my
sinus infections.  I hoped to improve my quality of life and overall health.  In only
four treatments I have seen dramatic improvements in my allergy and sinus
symptoms. I have not experienced any sinus headaches or severe allergy
attacks which previously occurred several times a week.  The herbal remedies
and supplements have helped to improve my digestion and immune system.  I
have felt better and have not had any food allergy reactions in four weeks.  
Quinn is a wonderful doctor.  He takes the time to really listen to his patients
and develops a unique plan for healing.  I have been extremely impressed with
every visit.  I absolutely recommend other to The Center.  I have only been
here four times and already see improvements in my health.  The Center and
my practitioner, Dr. Quinn Takei, are highly recommended.
-Kelly J.
The visits are helping achieve my health care goals both mentally and
physically.  Each time I go I feel better and better.  The herbs have helped as
a supplement to the acupuncture.  Definitely the two combined make a good
combination.  Since starting treatments at The Center, I feel less stressed,
more energy, healthier overall.  Dr. Quinn is very detailed in learning about
your health and life overall, as it all contributes to your health.  He takes his
time with his patients.  Really listens and understands what the patient is
dealing with.  He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to work with and
really cares for his patients.

Quinn is the reason I am walking, do not hurt, brought down my blood pressure,
joint pain, and blood sugar.  He tries to help you anyway he can.  With
