"My pain is going. I can walk straight. I can walk without pain. I can walk further each time. You make me very happy! " - Lillian Westcott, Ocean Hills, California " I started seeing Dr. Meggin Sullivan about one year ago. I suffered from plantar fasciitis in both feet, two trigger fingers, tendonitis, sciatic nerve pain and numerous aches and pains. Today, the plantar fasciitis is gone. The trigger finger is much better. I can now make a fist without my fingers locking. The tendonitis and sciatica pain is manageable. But the best thing is that I have never felt better. I didn’t realize how much stress I was under till now. Dr. Sullivan has given me a new feeling of peace. I was very skeptical when I first started seeing Dr. Sullivan, but I’m a believer now. She is truly a miracle worker." - Rosemary Duran, Vista, California
"I’m going to die- everyone is- but before I went to Dr. Sullivan and receive the treatments, I wanted to. Now, I experience deep sleep and when I awake, a significant amount of the pain is gone." - Tom Hill, Vista, California
"I was prescribed Celebrex for arthritis of the back and neck. I had been on the medication for over two years. The price for the Celebrex was $150 per month. The price of the medication and my interest in going "pill free" drove me to seek an alternative. A friend recommended acupuncture, as it had worked for her. After two sessions with Dr. Sullivan, I started feeling a decrease in pain. Now, I forget that my movements were ever restricted by my aches and pains. I'm off my medication. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" - Geri Maestas, ocean Hills, CA
" I was having health problems that no doctor could diagnose or help with the pain. Within a short amount of time, Meggin figured out exactly what was wrong and was helping take the pain away from my hip. I brag to anyone and everyone on how much she helped me. If I am ever sick, I can go to her and by the next day, I am fully back to my normal self." - Tami Feit, Carlsbad, California
" An injury to my neck resulted in muscles issues in my back changed my way of life. I began seeing chiropractors, three to be exact. With no relief, I then moved on to a great orthopedic surgeon. He recommended physical therapy and then a spine specialist. My spine specialist referred me to Meggin Sullivan for acupuncture. A healing began as I slowly recognized I was able to get back to the ability to move through my day without pain. After eight visits (4 weeks) I realized I had not experienced pain in several weeks.My life as I knew it was not over. Meggin gave me so much more than healing. I had hope again for my productive life to continue. Thank you so much Meggin."

”Doctor Sullivan is amazing! A couple of years ago I developed a real pain in my neck. I have no idea how it happened or why, but the sure result was just that. Sore, constant pain, inability to turn my head, I couldn’t sleep, spending the nights in a chair instead of bed. I couldn’t eat. I was fading. As fate would have it, I practically stumbled into the hallway of Dr. Sullivan’s office, by complete accident, in some painful and daze. Standing outside her door, I felt and smelled the aromas of incense and something deep inside, intuitively, pushed me through. To my great luck, Dr. Sullivan was able to see me right away. Although I have never prior to that done any acupuncture, and knowing my “options” presented by Western doctors (surgery), I gave it a whorl. Right after the first session, I felt a great deal of relief. I started to feel energy flow. A few appointments later, I was as good as new!”

" After 15 years of shoulder pain, three to five treatments, I woke up one morning and just wasn’t hurting any more."
- Rocco Lovetere, Vista, California
" Before I cane to see Dr. Sullivan my knee would swell every day. I was diagnosed with a Baker Cyst. It was painful and felt unstable as if it would go out. After several treatments, the swelling went away and has not returned. It’s like magic! "
Terry Bower, Vista, California
"The staff and patients at Oriental Medical Arts are some of the friendliest and courteous people I have ever met. I have been a patient of Dr. Sullivan's for over 3 years. She is through with all of her patients and takes the time with each person so you get the best experience every time you are there. Over the years I have gotten to know her and establish what I know will be a long lasting friendship, she is the type of person to go above and beyond to make sure you are strong, healthy, and at your best health. I highly recommend Dr. Meggin Sullivan, it will be well worth your time and money by the time you go searching around everywhere else, you save all time, energy, hope, and money by just visiting with her. Trust me she is the kindest person you will ever meet, and I liked that right off the bat she didn't try to "heal me with positive thinking" she looked at me and said "I will try my very best, to find out how to help you." - Stephanie Pham, Ternecula, CA
"I became quite ill. The preliminary diagnosis from two different dermatologists that I saw was acute dermatitis also known as eczema. This is not the first time I had this but the last time it was this severe was about 15 years ago. Meggin Sullivan, seeing what suffering I was going through, offered to help and she felt confident that she could. She said she had had very good, if not excellent, results with those who suffer from similar chronic skin and auto-immune conditions and because I was so exhausted and drained by these past 6 months of physical torture, I was happy to try her remedies We are only into the third week of treatment and now have added sessions of acupuncture which will, I believe, not only rid me of the rashes completely but nourish and replenish my skin to look even better than before and give me more energy to again be in the world, happy, and not a recluse. I am so happy about this treatment and so grateful for Meggin's care and insights. She is very thorough and really takes time with me. She listens carefully and responds by making up the remedy exactly right for me ands make any necessary changes in the treatments to adapt to my improving condition. Not only am I convinced I will get better but that I will be free of this very aggravating condition and in a very short time. It's almost too amazing to comprehend." - Julie Adler, Los Angeles
"The doctor told me the pain was from grease and stones in my gall bladder. The pain was excruciating. She had to wait for an approval to do an ultrasound. While I waited, I went to see Dr. Meggin Sullivan. She had helped me before. The pain was so bad. I hadn’t slept in days. She gave me herbs. That night I slept. The next day the pain was so much less- just pressure. Now it’s all gone." - Carmen Marquez, Escondido, CaliforniaKIDNEY STONES
"This year I found out I had a 6mm fibroid cyst on my ovary and a 13 mm kidney stone. Doctors said I would need to have both ovaries, my tubes and my uterus removed because of the cyst. I also needed to have surgery to remove the kidney stone which could cause damage to the kidney. Obviously I did not want to do either surgeries. Dr. Sullivan treated me with Acupuncture and Herbs for both conditions. Within 2 weeks the cyst was completely gone and a few months later the stone was reduced to half the size. I have seen Dr. Sullivan for several years for a life long condition that causes severe migraines and she has greatly helped that condition as well. I am so thankful for Dr. Sullivan and for her incredibly artful skill as a Oriental Medical Physician. " - Allie Burgess, San Diego, California
"I've been having problems with eye pressure for the past several years. In December of 2009, my eyes were checked and my left eye pressure went up to 24 mm HG. By June 2010, the pressure in my left eye was up to 35mm Hg. I had been taking my medication and it still kept climbing. After that, I went to see Dr. Sullivan. Four weeks later, my pressure fell to 19mm Hg. in my left eye and, it has stayed down since (9 months)." - Gwen Laidlaw, Ocean Hills, CA
"Dr. Meggin Sullivan of Oriental Medical Arts is a "miracle worker." Western medicine tells us there is nothing that can be done for neuropathy, but after only 3 visits with her my diabetic neuropathy improved by about 50%. After 4 visits all pain was gone, leaving me with a manageable level of numbness in my feet. ACUPUNCTURE WORKS!" - Dolores Chevron, Ocean Hills, California
I have had neuropathy in my feet and legs for many years. At first it manifested as numbness, but it got to the point where my feet hurt terribly. Since coming to Oriental Acupuncture, my feet are pain free and I no longer have numbness or the Charlie horses in my legs. Also, my balance has improved. - Phyllis Slade, Ocean Hills, CA
The pain was unbearable burning numbness in my legs and feet. It hurt so much. It kept me awake at night. It made work so difficult. The doctors gave me medication. It didn’t help. I went to see Dr. Meggin Sullivan. After just a few treatments, it was gone. I am so grateful! Thank you, thank you! - Carmen Marquez-Mora, Escondido, CA
I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. After 2 years of pharmaceuticals I was worse. They worked initially, for just a little while. Then they made me very sick. I couldn't stand up in the morning without severe knee pain. On day a friend told me to go see Dr. Sullivan. The next day (after treatment) my knee pain was gone. After a while, my foot pain, hand pain, back pain, hip pain was all gone. I was able to stop the pharmaceuticals and I actually felt better after I stopping the Methotrexate. I used to hurt so much; I couldn't work. I thought I was done for. Now, I can stand in front of a classroom for several hours and teach. I can do service calls. I can climb stairs without pain. My hands and feet no longer swell, and they don't hurt Without these treatments, I'd probably be not working. I'd be miserable and addicted to alcohol. My wife is an M.D. and she ecstatic with the improvement. All these improvements are a result of Dr. Sullivan's treatments. - Greg Chick, Ramona, CA
The Doctors said I had to have cardiac stints. After many complications, I was told that I would have to be on Amineridone for the rest of my life. It is very toxic, and began destroying my lungs. Before taking it, my lung capacity was at 18. After a year on Amineridone my lung capacity was down to 11. I was horribly sick. I couldn't breath. They said not to worry; I would just have to go on oxygen for the rest of my life. They said I couldn't get off it, no matter what. I knew I would die. I went to see Dr. Meggin Sullivan. She began working her magic. After a very short time, I began to feel better. I talked to my Doctor about getting off the Amineridone. He said it couldn't be done. But, I did. I cut the dose in half and then several months later I cut it in half again. Then my doctor told me that I might as well stop taking it. He said that a quarter dose wouldn't do any good. I've been off for over a year. All my numbers have come back. I can hike and breath again. I haven't felt this good in years! - Brigit Clarke-Smith, Carlsbad, CA
I began seeing Dr. Sullivan 10 year ago. I had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. The number got down to 22. They said: "Below 20, your dead." They also said I had angina, and a whole lot of other fancy stuff. My heart skipped like a flat stone over a smooth lake. Today, they say that number is back up to 36. I play golf twice a week. I can't remember the last time that heart skipped. My cardiologist said: "You're 88 going on 70." And, I feel great! -vNorman O. Fliegel, Ocean Hills, CA
"My husband was diagnosed with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Parkinson's and Dementia. They often used the term Alzheimer's. The 86 missions he flew in the South Pacific as a Marine Fighter Pilot in WWII, Bougainville, Guadalcanal and Manila left him with many scars. He would have times of incoherent ravings during the hallucinations from the PTSD. Besides that, he hadn't spoken in 5 months. After two treatments with Dr. Meggin Sullivan, he was speaking in full appropriate sentences. The hallucinations continued, but the lucid moments became more clear and lasted longer. My dear husband could carry on a conversation. He could remember stories of the past and laugh. A surgical accident at the local hospital cut short his recovery. But for several months I had him back and I'm so very grateful Dr. Sullivan." - Brigit Clarke-Smith, Carlsbad, CA
