“This is such an amazing studio and I’m so glad I joined. First of all, the staff here is amazing. Everyone at the front desk is so kind and welcoming. The instructors are amazing. I have not taken a single class and been anything other than so happy I came. Every instructor is so kind and unique and each class has its own unique style. The atmosphere is so relaxing and calming, and if you’re waiting in the Serenity room, there’s always yummy teas you can sample. I really love this place and recommend it to everyone… Coming to these classes has mentally made me such a better person, and I’m losing those last 15 pounds that wouldn’t seem to budge. I really love this place and I can’t say enough wonderful things about it!” – S.D.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Blue Heron Wellness is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Acupuncturist

We were excited to learn all about Blue Heron Wellness and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Elifa Rivetti.

Blue Heron Wellness is an integrative wellness center that provides the convenience of having many services under one roof. They do acupuncture, massage, skin care, chiropractic, and yoga all in the same building! Their heavily-vetted practitioners are the best around, and all of their acupuncturists and therapists work hard on building great relationships with their clients.

Elifa shared a bit about their business’ mission:

“We started out with a very simple mission: We want to provide people with a warm and welcoming environment where they feel safe getting our services and increasing their well being.”

Building Success Through Patience and Consistency

After 13 years in business, Blue Heron Wellness has marketed and grown their business thanks to strong word of mouth. They have recently started to do a lot of communicating with their community via social media. They send out emails at least once a week and follow-up with their clients regularly through Facebook or Instagram.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Blue Heron Wellness has managed to. We asked if Elifa could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Patience and consistency are key. You need to choose a small number of messages and stay on them, and make sure to get them out in the world in as many ways as possible!”


Congratulations to Blue Heron Wellness for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Elifa for taking the time to speak with us!

Walking into Art Of Healing, you will be greeted by a warm smile and a soothing cup of tea. You will always be given personalized treatment, and you will quickly see that communication is important to all of their staff. Janine said:

“We want to make sure that they know we’re on their side. We know what they’re going through. We believe that the body is tied to the mind. Our doctor also does energetic healing. He works with emotions to unblock their feelings and free their minds. We want our customers to know they have a friend in their healer.”

She went on to tell us about their company’s mission:

“[Our mission is] to help people. Our philosophy is that we can help with pain, no matter what kind!”

Building Success By Caring for their Clients

Art Of Healing has grown and prospered, which Janine says is thanks to word of mouth Janine said that most of their clients are referrals from friends and family. They also make sure to have a presence on social media, but it is their Google reviews that drive people through the door!

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Art Of Healing has managed to. We asked if Janine could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Treat your clients like your friends! If they know you care they will keep coming back and will tell other people.”

They are opening a second location soon! You will find it at 154 Bell Isle Road, Sandy Springs, GA 30342. Make your appointment today!

Alaska’s Top Rated Local® Acupuncturists Award Winner: Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC is a 2019 award winner for acupuncturists in Alaska!

When it comes to acupuncture in Anchorage, there’s no better option than Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC.

Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.90 stars, earning them a phenomenal Rating Score™ of 95.04 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 acupuncturists in all of Alaska!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I have been a patient for the past four years. I have chronic arthritis in my lower back and shoulder, and without this accupuncture treatment, I would be in pain all the time. I had tried other medical options before, but only the acupuncture treatments are working for me. Thanks to Seth, my acupuncturist, I am able to function with almost no pain. I recommend this acupuncture team to everyone with any pain. This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thanks, Seth.” – Ramon D.

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

We wanted to learn all about Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with co-owner, Kristen Wood.

The first question we had for Kristen was what is it that sets Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC apart from their competition in Alaska. Here’s Kristen’s response:

“…There are a lot of great acupuncture clinics out here. There are many talented acupuncturists, and we’re friends with many of them as well, which is great that we can have that kind of community. However, we offer many treatments styles and settings, and we offer these services to people from all walks of life. So we have affordable healthcare for people as well. And as our business is literally growing right now, we’ll have the ability to expand on that even more. We’ve worked really hard to get to where we are with our amazing team because it takes more than just my husband and I to make a business really blossom.”

Kristen went on to add:

“As an integrated healthcare clinic, we practice oriental medicine — that’s acupuncture, nutritional therapy, Gua Sha, cupping, electro-acupuncture bodywork, external and internal Chinese herbs and moxibustion, which is the original infrared heat therapy. We also offer massage therapy and medical-grade infrared sauna. We are also looking for a chiropractor to join our team.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Kristen had to say:

“We really want to be the catalyst for change on how people perceive complementary forms of healthcare and know that they can use oriental medicine as preventative healthcare in conjunction with other modalities that they’re currently utilizing. We have a very strong vision to help people. That’s the base of what we do — to be there for them to help allow their bodies to heal by giving them the tools to do so mentally and physically. I’m giving them a safe space and environment to do that as well. That’s all very important to us.”

Building Success by Letting the Work Speak for Itself

When we asked about Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC’s secret to such a strong online reputation, Kristen said:

“We let the work speak for itself, so it’s great to see the reviews. We recently just started asking people to leave reviews because we are noticing the importance of an online presence…”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC has gotten their name out there through community involvement — including doing health fairs and having a booth at sporting events — by networking with local businesses, by being active on social media — specifically Instagram and Facebook — and by sending out monthly newsletters. They’re also in the process of having someone redo their website.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC has. Here’s Kristen’s expert advice for them:

“Hold onto your dreams; never let go of your dreams. Your dreams will change and grow as you grow as a person. So be very strong with your personal growth, because it’s inevitable; change is inevitable. …There is going to be hard times. …You must have clear communication…”


Congratulations to the team at Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Kristen, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Snow Blossom Acupuncture LLC in Anchorage. Visit their website today!

Nebraska’s Top Rated Local® Acupuncturists Award Winner: Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture is a 2019 award winner for acupuncturists in Nebraska!

For next-level chiropractic care and acupuncture in Lincoln, there’s no better option than Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture.

Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture has received dozens of reviews on multiple verified sites with an average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them an incredible Rating Score™ of 94.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 acupuncturists in all of Nebraska!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I have been going to Thrive for over three years now, and Dr. Brittney has given my family amazing care! She helped me feel great through two pregnancies and continues to adjust my son and I weekly. We love the positive atmosphere, and the Thrive team is so friendly. We just LOVE them!!” – Kalin P.

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

Dr. Brittany Keller, the owner of Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture apart from the many other acupuncture clinics in Nebraska. Here’s Dr. Keller’s response:

“We aren’t symptom-oriented. This isn’t somewhere that you come simply because you have back pain or neck pain. People come here because we are family-oriented, and they are looking for long-term care on improving their function and overall health. We have highly trained doctors in prenatal and pediatric techniques, and we take care of a lot of expecting mothers and their children once they are born.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Dr. Keller had to say:

“[Our mission is] to promote the health of the children and families of our community, primarily by reducing interference to the vital nervous system.”

Building Success by Taking Care of Patients and Making Them Feel Like Family

When we asked Dr. Keller about Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture’s secret to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“When our patients make comments about their experience in the office, we aren’t afraid to ask them to share that online as well! Our patients come in for health and wellness, and they always feel like they’re really well taken care of and part of a family, because we have a strong community.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture has spread the word about who they are and what they do by hosting events, like Ladies Night and a Wine and Wellness Night, to help people get to know them. However, most of their business comes from referrals.

Clearly, Dr. Keller knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“It comes down to building a community of people who are passionate about what you do — finding your tribe — and supporting people through that. We have built relationships with moms who are health- and wellness-oriented, and we do what we can to support them to build that community. They spread the word for us!”


Congratulations to the team at Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dr. Keller, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Lincoln. Visit their website today!

“I have been very happy and impressed with Kowalski Chiropractic. They are professional, friendly and extremely accommodating when I needed to pop in last minute for an adjustment. I would, and do, highly recommend them for all chiropractic care!” – Nancy M.

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Tyler Kowalski, who owns Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance with his wife.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Tyler about what makes Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance unique compared to the many other acupuncture clinics in Nebraska. Tyler told us that they give quality care and aren’t pushy with long-term plans:

“We customize our plans for each patient. Some need to come in a couple of times, and some just need a one-time fix.”

Tyler went on to tell us that he and his wife met in chiropractic school and then opened the practice together. Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance is a small, family-owned, customer-focused business that loves being close to its clients.

We also asked Tyler about the Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Tyler shared with us

“[Our mission is to] restore health and increase performance to help to improve people’s lives, and to give people a natural option for better health.”

Building Success by Doing a Good Job With Their Patients

Tyler credits Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance’s strong online reputation to their commitment to doing a good job with patients, which Tyler tells us, leads to good reviews. They’ve also recently started encouraging their patients to leave reviews.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance has grown by posting videos and following up on emails.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Tyler’s expert advice for them:

“Keep your customer always in your focus -— we want to make sure that we are giving the best, natural way of fixing bodies. We understand that you can take medicine to make the pain go away, but we are trying to fix the problem within first.”


Congratulations to Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Tyler, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Kowalski Chiropractic Health & Performance in Kearney. Visit their website today!

Georgia’s Top Rated Local® Acupuncturists Award Winner: Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture is a 2019 award winner for acupuncturists in Georgia!

When it comes to acupuncture, there’s no better option than Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture.

Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture has received dozens of reviews on three verified sites with an average rating of 5.00 stars, earning it an outstanding Rating Score™ of 96.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 acupuncturists in all of Georgia!

Here’s just one of its many five-star reviews:

“Dr. Jones helped me find relief from chronic lower back and hip pain that I’ve been dealing with for the past 18 months!! He is a great listener, and it is clear that helping patients is his number one priority. I’m grateful to have been able to work with Dr. Jones and would absolutely recommend him to my friends and family.” – Lauren R.

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

Dr. David Jones, the owner of Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture apart from the many other acupuncture clinics in Georgia. Here’s Dr. Jones’ response:

“I’ve learned Exstore — which is a series of manual orthopedic tests to identify which muscles have been inhibited and gives me more capability to ease tension and pain by knowing what the problem really is, and also to improve function and range of motion. This anatomically based approach gives me a leg up on other acupuncturists. I am also a certified meditation instructor — which is great for pain relief — and I use Chinese herbal medicine, which most acupuncturists don’t use and is great for treating everything! It can even be more effective than traditional acupuncture for systemic issues, like Fibromyalgia, and auto-immune conditions, like insomnia.”

Dr. Jones went on to add:

“The most common conditions I treat are Fibromyalgia, TMJ and simple auto-immune conditions (like arthritis), and I use things like gasotransmitter therapy, which helps release nitrous oxide build-up the muscles.”

We also wanted to know why Dr. Jones does what he does at Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture and how he works to make the world a better place. Here’s what Dr. Jones had to say:

“[My mission is] to relieve pain, which means less stress, which means people will be nicer! Healing requires some amount of increase of consciousness, and that allows people to be more loving, more accepting and happier. I want to help people be happier.”

Building Success by Doing the Best Work Possible

When we asked Dr. Jones about Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“I’m a one-man operation, and I think the best way to build my business is to do the best work possible and spend as much time as possible with my patients. I’ve gone and learned a lot of techniques that help me cover all the bases. It’s important to have a set of approaches at my disposal.”

Dr. Jones added:

“I know that the reviews will help me grow, so I try very hard to earn reviews. You have to produce results to get good reviews.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Dr. Jones has grown Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture through his website — which he is currently redoing along with his logo — and through community involvement — he is giving a free meditation class in early June for Veterans to help with PTSD and other stress-related disorders.

Clearly, Dr. Jones knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Make sure you believe in what you’re doing, have the training to do it and give yourself the confidence to do it. You can’t be an expert in everything, but find out what you are good at, then try and learn as much as possible to help people the best way you can.”

Dr. Jones ended our conversation by telling us that acupuncture is now a covered benefit for Veterans through the VA!


Congratulations to Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dr. Jones, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Atlanta Restorative Acupuncture. Visit their website today!

Georgia’s Top Rated Local® Acupuncturists Award Winner: Longevity Health Center

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Longevity Health Center is a 2019 award winner for acupuncturists in Georgia!

Are you looking for the right acupuncture clinic in Roswell? If so, look no further than Longevity Health Center.

Longevity Health Center has received dozens of reviews on three verified sites with an average rating of 4.80 stars, earning them a stupendous Rating Score™ of 94.05 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 acupuncturists in all of Georgia!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“I’m so, so grateful to Longevity’s amazing team. The doctor is a Godsend. All of his daughters are beautiful, caring souls. His wife helps make everyone feel like you’re part of the family. The staff is kind and attentive. Everyone’s knowledge at Longevity is top notch. I travel from Florida to Georgia for their care. They are truly interested in helping people heal and enjoy a healthy, quality life. Their intentions are pure. As a patient, they take my health personally and spend the necessary time to explain and discuss their findings. There is no better place for health care. I’ve been going to Longevity for over 15 years. I’ve tried other facilities (specifically after I moved to Fl), but no other health center compares. Thank you!” – Alyssa E.

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Melina Smith, Office Manager at Longevity Health Center.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Melina about what makes Longevity Health Center unique compared to the many other acupuncture clinics in Georgia. Melina told us that they are one-of-a-kind because of the several decades of experience they have under their belts. They offer various types of alternative health care, have multiple practitioners and have treated multiple generations of patients.

We also asked Melina about the Longevity Health Center mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Melina shared with us that their goal is to diagnose the underlying cause of a condition rather than just treating the symptoms.

Building Success Through Longevity and Experience

Melina credits Longevity Health Center’s strong online reputation to the fact that they’ve been in business for 40 years now and that they are a very niche business.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Longevity Health Center has grown through Facebook and Google advertising, but most of their business comes from repeat customers and word-of-mouth referrals.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Melina’s expert advice for them:

“Focus on customer service. Get the right attention and care. Make sure to listen and hear what the clients are saying.”


Congratulations to Longevity Health Center for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Melina, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Longevity Health Center in Roswell. Visit their website today!

Wisconsin’s’ Top Rated Local® Acupuncturists Award Winner: Milwaukee Community Acupuncture

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Milwaukee Community Acupuncture is a 2019 award winner for acupuncturists in Wisconsin!

If you’re looking for affordable, accessible acupuncture, look no further than Milwaukee Community Acupuncture.

Milwaukee Community Acupuncture has received more than 100 reviews with a perfect average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them a fantastic Rating Score™ of 94.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 acupuncturists in all of Wisconsin!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Milwaukee Community Acupuncture is a local treasure. Acupuncture has been helpful for a mile long list of ailments, from PMS and sprained ankles to pain management and immunity support. I’ve been coming here for about 10 years, and I can always tell when I haven’t received treatment for a while. All of the practitioners are awesome. MCA is affordable, and scheduling appointments is easy. The minute you walk into this place, you feel at peace. It’s lovely.” – Mildred P.

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

We wanted to learn all about Milwaukee Community Acupuncture and its tremendous online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with co-owner, Amy Severinsen.

The first question we had for Amy was what is it that sets Milwaukee Community Acupuncture apart from their competition in Wisconsin. Here’s Amy’s response:

“First and foremost, the affordability and accessibility of our appointments are a huge benefit to our community. People can get in usually the same day that they want to get in. They can typically afford the appointments. We’re on a sliding scale pay… We don’t require any income verification for people. It’s easy to use and easy to schedule, and all of our practitioners are very experienced and very kind.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Milwaukee Community Acupuncture and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Amy had to say:

“We really strive to offer health care that is affordable and accessible to people of all means and backgrounds.”

Building Success by Asking for Feedback

Amy attributes Milwaukee Community Acupuncture’s strong online reputation to their commitment to asking their clients for feedback:

“We do ask patients to write us reviews from time to time. People will give us some feedback that’s really great, and we’ll just ask them to go ahead and leave a review for us online. Those positive reviews are really what drive people to come to our place. Acupuncture can be intimidating to try out, because not a lot of people are familiar with it and what the experience will be like. So hearing that positive word-of-mouth feedback from people is what really draws people in.”

When we asked Amy how Milwaukee Community Acupuncture has gotten their name out there outside of building a powerful online reputation, she said:

“We did have a news station come in and do a piece on us, and the news anchor actually received acupuncture himself, which was really fun. We participate in some local community events. There’s a once a year, Gallery Night, where we host an artist and people come in. We usually have some snacks and treats and hang up art around the clinic. People can then talk to us about our services. We offer talks. Some of our practitioners go out to different businesses and do lunch and learns. We participate in the Veterans Chamber of Commerce and the LGBQ Chamber of Commerce. We just try to get involved. We’re part of an opioid task force right now as well. …We try to get out as much as we can to join different groups but also have people coming into the space to see and experience it themselves as well. But, we often don’t pay for any marketing because we just don’t have a budget for it.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Milwaukee Community Acupuncture has. Here’s Amy’s expert advice for them:

“Just do what you feel most passionate about and really focus on giving excellent customer experience. Ask people who do feel like you’re giving good customer service to really promote you, because, as we’ve experienced, it’s really the people who come in and use and enjoy the space or the product that sell it the best for you.”


Congratulations to the team at Milwaukee Community Acupuncture for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Amy, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Milwaukee Community Acupuncture. Visit their website today!

North Dakota’s Top Rated Local® Acupuncturists Award Winner: Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture is an award winner for acupuncturists in 2019.

If you are looking for an acupuncturist that will help get you feeling your best, look no further than this award-winning company!

Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across three different verified sites with an average rating of 4.71 stars, earning them an impressive

Rating Score™ of 93.07 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as the number one acupuncturist in North Dakota!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I have suffered from migraines for as long as I can remember. I tried many doctors, pain meds, ER visits, etc, and nothing ever helped. I started to see Dr. Waind after a car accident a few years ago and noticed within a month that my migraines were gone. I would have never believed that it would have helped my migraines. I can’t recommend it enough. Total life changer!” – L.H.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Acupuncturist

We were excited to learn all about how Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture has been able to build such an impressive reputation, so we sat down with the Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant, Shanna Larson.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture stand apart from their competitors. Shanna told us that they do both chiropractic and acupuncture and that they do something called AcuStaple for headache and migraine relief. They like to treat their patients efficiently to reduce the number of times they have to come in.

Building Success By Getting Their Name Out

Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture has managed to build a strong reputation over the years, and we learned that they have marketed and grown their business by trying out different marketing tactics to find out what works for them. So far, word of mouth has been their best source for new business, but they have also tried using billboards and sponsoring local sports teams.

Dr. Waind bought the practice in 2002, and has not only received a Top Rated Local Award but also received the 2018 Readers Choice Award for best Chiropractic Practice in Grand Forks.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture has managed to. We asked if Shanna could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“I would say to try to get in front of your clients as much as possible. Having a Facebook page and a website is important”


Congratulations to Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Shanna for taking the time to speak with us!
