Great first appointment!
“I had never done acupuncture and Amy was very good at explaining the process as well as other treatments that we could try. After one 90 minute procedure involving a deep tissue massage and acupuncture, the majority of my pain went away. I highly recommend Amy and will be returning in the future.”

I love Amy!
“Amy has been instrumental in helping me through both an ankle injury and some stress related issues around wedding planning and living a busy San Francisco life. Since going to her I’ve been thrilled with the progress I’ve made on both fronts and see the long term benefits from our appointments. She customizes each session to what is going on in my life, and with my body, and I always leave feeling better. I highly recommend visiting Amy!”

A Healing Experience
“I was referred to Amy by a good friend who recommended that I see her. I have been dealing with a painful shoulder injury and thought that adding Acupuncture to my treatment might be very helpful. Over the past several months of regular treatments with her, I have noticed an improvement in my shoulder, as well as my overall sense of health and well-being. She uses many different techniques. As a physician, I know a gifted healer when I find one, and Amy definitely is in that category. “

Body Work Guru
“Amy’s thorough knowledge of human anatomy coupled with her unparalleled intuition make for an amazing 60 or 90 minute session- and will leave you coming back for more! She’s personable- gets to know you, your habits and routines- even sends follow up recommendations after session. Amy’s work is comprehensive and holistic- she looks for the root rather than the symptom 🙂 “

Amy Baird Schlegel Review
“I was referred to Amy by a friend that swears by her services. She asked a lot of questions in my first visit to really help understand my health in a holistic manner. I have suffered from neck and lower back pain after sports injuries and she works to understand where those issues might be stemming from. There are a number of different treatment options available, and each process and step is explained thoroughly to make sure I feel comfortable with what we’re doing.”

Knee Pain Gone
“Amy helped me get rid of my chronic knee pain. I can’t believe this happened! Amy is a highly professional accupuncturist offering a hollistic approach to her treatments. She will advise you on other areas of life to work on, to get rid of the pain, I really like that aspect.”
Dec 2, 2017
“Thank you Amy for a wonderful healing experience.

I am delighted by the positive results from my first visit with Amy, and am looking forward to returning for sustainable healing.”

Amy is remarkable!
“Amy is a healer and nurturer. She provided me with treatment during the last week of my pregnancy to prepare my body for child birth and even made a hospital visit on the day of my labor to provide me with one last treatment before my baby was delivered. I continue to see her for post-partum treatment. My body and soul is always rejuvenated and nurtured after seeing Amy. She is such an extraordinary Accupuncturist, healer, and human. “

Amy Baird is SAVING MY LIFE
“I have visited Amy twice (so far). I have struggled from severe Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) for YEARS. I have spent thousands of dollars trying to find a holistic way to cope, and with just my few visits to Amy I feel 10 million times better than I’ve ever felt. She is so gifted in the way she heals. I hope to see her every week for the rest of my life 😉 Thank you SO much for your warm, loving, and intuitive touch and holding such amazing space for me! I feel so grateful!”
Dec 11, 2016
THIS REALLY WORKS! Thank you Amy!!!
“I visited Amy three days ago for my first time ever acupuncture treatment. I’ve had a wrist ligament injury that has bothered me for over nine months, and at this point I will try anything to get relief. The sensation of the small needles in my head, neck, shoulder and wrist left me feeling extremely relaxed and initiated a long deep breath. Now just three days later, my wrist is already feeling better! I can not wait to go back and see Amy. Thank you for your loving and intuitive touch! “
Nov 14, 2016
“Amy knows her stuff. She explains everything she is doing along the way and why it is done. I appreciate that. I’ve come in sick as a dog twice now and each time I have bounced back better than ever. Highly recommended. If I could, I would see here more often. “
Nov 10, 2016
Best decision of 2016
“Amy has been the best addition to my life in 2016. She’s helped me sleep regularly, get sick a lot less and also feel so cared for every time I visit.

Best in Class
“Dr. Amy is a best in class acupuncture and eastern medicine practitioner. Dr. Amy’s commitment to excellence and passion for helping people was sincere and very thorough. Having worked with many practitioners over the past few decades, I have never had such a through and thoughtful intake. Dr. Amy’s commitment to her patients was very clear and patient comfort was first and foremost.

June 4, 2016
“Amy cured arm/shoulder pain that I anticipated unfixable in 2015 (basketball at age 70, what could one expect?). In 2016 she has helped reduce long-term nasal breathing difficulties (acupuncture + herbs), and has also provided a salve that has effectively reduced perennial dry-skin itching. A retired economics professor sceptic, Amy has made me a believer. She is a pleasant professional and an attentive listener. A+. “

Put me at ease
“I wanted to try acupuncture for the first time and Amy put me at ease. She was very knowledgeable and patient. She started off with a bit of massage to ease me into it. She explained to expect with the needles, and which sites were selected and why, and when I might expect them to feel like (it’s not bad). She lulled me to sleep. “
Mar 18, 2016
Amy saved me again!
“I’ve been going to Amy for over a year and she is always very professional, knowledgable and excellent at massage therapy.

Definitely recommend her services. “

Feb 4, 2016
“Amy is my Sister-in-Law, and in the past, I had received Acupuncture from some of her students at ACTCM in San Francisco, who were terrific. I went to see Amy professionally for the first time last month, and it was a great experience! My Acupuncture treatment was followed by a great massage, and I left the office feeling relaxed and revitalized. My neck pain was gone and has not returned. Amy is very professional and very knowledgeable. “
Jan 7, 2016
“Amy is a real life miracle worker. I have gone to several other acupuncturists before and none of them were able to deliver the results I desired. Amy is a warm, gentle, fun and loving person and puts her whole heart into the care she gives. She is extremely precise with her acupuncture points and I swear she has the knowledge to address just about any scenario you may be presenting her with. I can’t recommend her enough. “

Calming, Curative Acupuncture
“Amy is a kind caretaker. She creates a comfortable environment complete with heaters, blankets, pillows, music, tea, and anything else one may desire. Precise with placement, her acupuncture technique, healing massage work, and attentive bedside manner are ideal for first timers as well as those with much experience. I always am able to get into a space of deep relaxation when she dims the light and allows for some quality quiet time. Knowledgeable and fun, Amy’s the one!”
Oct 17, 2015
“In just a few sessions the trouble I was having with my plantar fasciitis was gone and my shoulder pain is no longer as painful. It’s at a mere simmer and will be gone soon. Amy knows what she’s doing and she cares deeply. Love her”
Sep 28, 2015
So glad I went to Amy!
“I had my first appointment with Amy a few weeks ago – a full consultation, massage, and acupuncture. Later that same day, I got a very thorough and helpful follow up email recapping her suggestions and advice. I returned to Amy for another session and felt, once again, that I was getting personalized attention and treatment; moreover, that she has a personal investment in my health and wellness. I am thrilled with my experience – I have and will continue to highly recommend Amy! “

Amy does wonders to my back
“Amy is an excellent and caring professional. I have been seeing her for my sciatica for a couple of years now, but I find that her holistic treatment works well for other issues as well such as women’s health. Amy is knowledgable about Chinese herbs as well, which compliment the treatment. Amy lis also a good listener, that makes the treatment more targeted. And last but not least, the studio on Fillmore that she practices at is lovely. “

Very experienced & knowledgeable practitoner
“Amy cares a lot about her patients. She acquired her knowledge and skills both in U.S. & in China. I’ve had acupuncture in the past and most practitioners I’ve been to, their sessions are only 30 minutes. The sessions I’ve had with Amy have been longer, and I noticed that her work is more effective than what I’ve experienced from other acupuncturist. She also does terrific acupressure work in addition to the acupuncture. “

Amy is awesome!
“Amy is very knowledgable about all things regarding holistic wellness. She does both massage and acupuncture.

absolutely stellar in every way.
“I have longed for an DAOM with the knowledge, caring heart and intuition that Amy possesses. Now, I have found one and am thrilled. Amy has great skill and is an amazing acupuncturist and herbalist. I am so happy to recommend her to others without hesitation. “
May 11, 2015
“I had a great massage and acupuncture which was suggested by Amy. It felt good at the time and the feeling lasted a couple of days after.”
I have been a patient of Amy’s for almost a decade, and during that time my health and well being has improved greatly. Amy is easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable – her treatments and recommendations have helped me to treat back pain and improve my emotional well being.
Amy is nothing short of a miracle worker. I came to her with severe back pain and she was able to make it disappear. She is a true healer and has one of the largest, most beautiful hearts of anyone I ever met. She is an expert in her field and also a joy to be around. She really cares about her patients and seeing them get better. I feel so lucky to have found her.
Amy is a wonderful acupuncturist! She has such a sweet, nurturing energy and is a powerhouse of knowledge.
She has especially helped me with my eczema rash and used herbs and acupuncture to completely solve the problem. She has also treated and resolved my chronic sore throats and helps me manage anxiety and stress.
Don’t hesitate to contact her and see what acupuncture and Chinese medicine can do for you!
After a 2nd allergist and another acupuncturist could not keep with my allergies, I started seeing Amy as she was in the neighborhood. Amy’s treatments have been amazing. She’s extremely knowledgeable in both acupuncture and herbal remedies. Amy is very keen on tailoring a creative therapy that worked for me, more than just following traditional/regimented Chinese pressure points. (As an FYI, regular treatments is key–noticeable change will happen after several sessions.)
What makes Amy even more amazing is that she’s an instructor and program advisor for acupuncture at ACTCM. From one of our social circles, we’ve heard absolutely wonderful news about her as a teacher as well. I highly recommend Amy as an acupuncturist and herbal therapist Dante G.
Amy is one of a kind. I was working a job that I greatly disliked and was suffering from numerous stress ailments. Amy could get rid of them all and I would leave her office with so much bliss! As I have moved away from California, I have yet to find a practitioner that can do so many things so well, consistently.
When I was injured in a bike accident, I called Amy on a weekend and she immediately scheduled me for the first of several treatments. The stress I felt was as worrisome to me as the pain in my hip, but Amy’s calming, compassionate, and professional demeanor immediately put me at ease. Her attention to detail and level of expertise surpassed my expectations, and I was especially impressed with the way she communicated with me during our appointments. Amy made me feel cared for, safe, and relaxed; she is a natural and gifted healer. Jessica G.
I had exhausted the Doctor and MRI route and was told to live with my upper hamstring pain and limitations. As a triathlete, that was not going to work for me. I tried acupuncture with Amy, described my symptoms and right away she said, “has anyone ever mentioned sciatica?” They had not. Six or eight treatments later, I was 100%. She knows what she is doing.
Two accidents I suffered years ago (automobile and hang gliding) had left me with increasing pain and weakness in my left arm and hand. As a writer it became difficult and at times overwhelmingly painful and distracting to type at my keyboard.
Amy listened very attentively and patiently to my accident stories and symptoms. She then focused on just a few acupuncture points. The first points were soothing and what I’d come to expect… but the last point really kicked my healing process into another realm.
Immediately my entire body felt dramatically lighter. The pain dissolved and over the next few weeks my strength gradually returned. After years of dealing with chronic pain Amy’s treatment was truly a gift.
Whenever I’m writing I give credit and thanks to Amy for the words that now flow painlessly and powerfully onto the page.
“My back hurts…,” or “my stomach is upset” is usually how my call to Amy began. I have a job that is often stressful and the pressure seems to work its way into my system through one of those two areas. Amy has an efficient and direct manner for dealing with the ailments, and a gentle and soothing touch for quelling the pain. Rather than waiting for something to be out of balance, I discovered the benefit of taking action before I get sick and lose work time.
I enjoy seeing Amy simply because she obviously cares and her environment supports that feeling, leaving me less anxious and more relaxed at the end of our session.
Acupuncture, massage and herbs…what more could you ask for? About a year ago I came to see Amy because I was having sciatica problems. As a professional dancer and instructor I was having pain and discomfort when I danced. I have found that acupuncture helps!
Amy provided massage to ailing parts of my body, and worked the areas to loosen them before receiving the needles. She also provided information on my health holistically and encouraged a healthier diet catering to my particular active lifestyle. I was also provided with herbs to balance out my deficiencies. I always left feeling at ease and a deep sense of renewal in my whole body. I no longer suffer from sciatic problems thanks to her healing hands! Denise W.
After orthoscopic surgery… to repair several ankle breaks as a dancer, Amy’s able and diligent application of moxa and acupuncture healed the ankle in 1/3 the time expected and I am still dancing today, five years later!
Amy Baird is a wonderful body worker and acupuncturist. She practices holistic medicine in the sense that she really looks at the whole person every time she considers treatment. I always get the sense that Amy genuinely cares not only about her patients but how she can contribute to their overall health and well-being. She’s willing to do whatever it takes to educate herself and expand her capabilities beyond what is required. I not only love and admire Amy but I greatly respect her as a practitioner and as a friend. I cannot recommend her enough!!
Amy Baird is one of the most compassionate people I know. She is a true professional who listens to the clients needs and meets the client where they are at. I highly recommend her.
If you recall I have seen you in the past for acupuncture treatment for: lower back pain, shoulder pain, nausea and a stiff neck.
I could not believe that you were able to work on me relentlessly, and address all my issues in one session. That was very impressive.
The end result was great, especially, my nausea and my neck pain which disappeared almost instantly. My lower back pain and my shoulder pain were significantly better, something I could not experience with Chiropractic treatments.
So, thank you very much for your expertise and for making me feel better.
