By Karen Lucas Breda Ph.D., RN Regarding VPG Waves, Bob Robles LAc
One morning I noticed myself limping down the stairs. The swelling in my right knee had gotten so bad that I could no longer bend it properly. My chiropractor had been treating my hip for over a year and I was also having a massage from an expert massage therapist every three weeks. Things were not getting better. Was I looking at hip surgery? As a registered nurse I knew too well the possible side effects of surgery and I did not want surgery if I could help it.
I was hoping for the best when I entered Mr. Robles’ community acupuncture office for the first time in January five years ago. My chiropractor and my massage therapist had recommended him, so I knew I would be in good hands.
The room was warm and cozy and I was surprised at how comfortable everyone looked in the community acupuncture setting. I liked the fact that it was so easy and affordable. No disrobing and no big bill out of pocket each time I went. Within the first several treatments, I began to have less swelling in my knee until finally, my knee was normal again. My hip improved after the knee resolved and I could not believe my newfound range of motion. This was a painless range of motion! I would not have believed the scenario if someone else had told me about it. As a nursing professor, I critique all new methods and read the research thoroughly. I already knew a lot about the good effects of acupuncture. With Mr. Robles’ community acupuncture, I was able to go more often and I found amazing results.
Did I mention that Mr. Robles made me feel good about myself as a person? I laughed silly each time I went and learned a lot about how acupuncture actually works. He is professional and extremely skilled. The best around, I say. Because there are so few negative side effects to acupuncture (some would say no side effects), it is definitely worth a try even for the skeptics. Try it, you’ll like it, and your body and mind will thank you for it!

Teresa A. Regarding Gigi Adduci Colon hydro-therapist
I am so happy I found this place, I had hydro colonic treatments with Gigi. She was very kind and made me feel very comfortable each visit. She actually wants you to feel better and you will. She knows her thing! I had stomach pains, I always felt bloated and full before coming to VPG but now I am more energized and able to go every day. I had my last treatment and I feel AMAZING, I even lost pounds and my stomach is flatter. The best choice I made for my health was coming here. I also had a cupping session with Jen and she was very knowledgeable on natural ways to take care of your health. It’s always clean never crowds I strongly recommend this place like today!
I loved my experience here so much. I can not wait to go back. The staff was amazing and kind. Very knowledgeable. I felt super comfortable and welcome. I highly recommend it.
Great experience!! One treatment of acupuncture and I’m feeling a lot less pain. Definitely going back and continue with more treatments to fix the problem for good
Great experience! Have bought a variety of treatments and enjoyed them all!
This was my first time with acupuncture. To my surprise, I got instant results. I was told several times to try it, but couldn't bring myself to do so. But now I'm a believer. I will be going back to work out some other issues. Is it possible I can finally be free of chronic pain? I'm currently headed in the right direction.
I had a great time with Gigi! The place is great and everyone is kind, professional, and knowledgeable. I look forward to going back again soon!
Loved it. Jennifer was great - already booked more appointments.
