I have been seeing Josh Zimmer since May. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and live with constant pain. I have tired so many different meds and and various protocols, but nothing has worked well. Dr Zimmer has used his Eastern Medicine techniques and with clinical data proof, he is helping my RA. My Sed rate is approaching normal and the pain is basically under control. I cannot recommend Josh Zimmer more highly. He understands and uses his "tools" to heal.

I have been going to Dr. Zimmer since he started his practice. He does so much more than just Accupuncture such as cupping, electrical stimulation, and massage. I can always count on him to use the correct modality to treat whatever ache I have at the time. I've referred family members and friends to him, and I travel from Venice to Sarasota for his professional treatments. Last week I saw him for neck pain, and I left the office for the first time, in a long time, with no pain in my neck.

I am a registered nurse which has enabled me to have a good understanding of the human body and the assessments of each body system. I have been experiencing severe sciatica and neck pain for over 10 years. The assessment done by Josh was phenomenal. I have never had such an extensive work up of all body systems. Josh is extremely knowledgeable and very compassionate. I have had accupuncture in the past but the assessments and treatment that Josh provided was the best I have ever had.

Josh is my Acupuncturist since October 2017. Since then I have come a long way with his guidance and knowledge. I kept saying Josh I’m not stressed, he once said to me you cannot keep burning the candles at both ends. He made me open my eyes and see exactly what I was doing to my body by keeping it real and not sugar coating things. I have learned that most conditions are lifestyle based and it’s up to me to recognize and make the necessary changes along with his treatments for relaxation.

Josh has been my acupuncturist for several months now, and during this time I have come to know him more as a person and a practitioner. I believe his healing comes from a deep sense of purpose and compassion, with a knowledge base that continues to grow. If you are struggling with ongoing stress, pain, or need to feel balanced, see Josh for a session and I am certain you will walk away feeling restored.

I find each treatment very helpful in relaxing my body. I enjoy the time of quite relaxation. I find it easy to meditate & just let my body dance with the energy flow. When I have low back and hip pain, his treatments, which combine acupuncture with other modalities like homeopathic injections, make it go away.

The first time I met Dr Josh I was getting massage treatments at the Gabriel Center. I asked him if the needles hurt? Josh patiently showed me how harmless and flexible the needles were. I have really tight hips and all my stress goes to my shoulders. My first treatment I had acupuncture and cupping . I could touch my toes with no pain in my hips that is a huge accomplishment. I have many different tight areas but he tries to help me as much as he can, I recommend Dr Josh to anyone in pain.

He is very compassionate, listens and he makes every appointment easy. He has a gentle way of speaking to his patients and very thorough. I started going to him for acupuncture and am very impressed. Even brought his referrals. I have really bad migraines and in the three times I have been there, I've only had one small migraine. We are also working with my anemia so this great. I enjoy the acupuncture a lot considering I've never done it before till I started seeing Dr. Zimmer.

I first went to Dr. Zimmer to get a B-12 shot and it became so much more. He takes the time to listen and seeks information to treat the sources of concern, not just the symptoms. After a lengthy interview, he researched and advised specific food changes; herbs, vitamins and minerals, as well as acupuncture. Today, I have more sustained energy and am sleeping better, which is extremely important as a healthcare employee who works 6-7 day, 12-16 hour shifts. I highly recommend Dr. Zimmer,
