"After working hard all my life as a stone mason, aches and pains kind of come with the territory.   I have  back, shoulder, hip and neck pains of varying degrees.  Anna's acupuncture has brought me back once again to feeling pretty good.  I have tried chiropractors, pain pills and home remedies and nothing works as well for me as acupuncture."

"Anna Cocilovo Symond has been treating me with acupuncture on an ongoing basis for a couple of years now. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I came to her with Interstitial Cystitis which is a chronic and complex condition.  I'm in incredible pain most of the time. The techniques Anna uses  helps lessen the symptoms and the pain. I have been to many acupuncturists and  she has helped me the most. I feel supported and safe in Anna's office and with her treatment. I would highly recommend her as an acupuncturist for pretty much any condition."

"I highly recommend Anna Cocilovo Symond and the Acupuncture Center.  Anna is smart, insightful, and a rare breed among health practitioners - able to understand and use both Western and alternative practices.  Anna is both a Physician Assistant and a licensed acupuncturist so she is able to pull from both areas of expertise to heal what are often chronic, intractable problems.

Anna has helped me immeasurably.  She has been able to "turn the dial down" on chronic back pain  when nothing else ever touched it.  She has also made a huge difference in the symptoms I suffer with from multiple chemical sensitivities.  Anna is giving me my life back."

Bonnie D.

"I have been seeing Anna Cocilovo Symond, for six or more years, on an as-needed basis. I have the highest regard for her and recommend her to anyone in pain, chronic or occasional, no matter the cause, as well as to people with other conditions. On many occasions, Anna has treated me for allergy- and stress-related headaches and for upper and lower back pain. But Anna is more than my acupuncturist. I consider her my main doctor. She is an intuitive healer who always seems to know what is going on in my body and what is needed to treat it.  Her medical background as a Physician Assistant is a great asset. I trust her implicitly. On one occasion, when both my naturopathic and allopathic doctors did not diagnose a condition that was causing me joint weakness and pain, Anna diagnosed the condition immediately over the phone. She prescribed a combination of conventional medicines, acupuncture, and NMT that eventually cured the condition. Anna also had me visit a rheumatologist who supported her course of treatment.  One thing that I greatly value about Anna is that she knows when acupuncture  is called for and when conventional medicines, in concert, are required. I could not trust or recommend any medical practitioner more heartily."

"Anna Cocilovo Symond of the Acupuncture Center of Prescott has been and is still a great help to me in controlling a disease that as yet has no cure and few answers."

Dolores G.

"I had a painful tendonitis in my Achilles for over 2 years which prevented me from hiking and
 running. I tried rest, anti-inflammatories, and physical therapy with limited results.  Finally I got acupuncture from Anna Cocilovo Symond.  I was 90% pain free after the first treatment and running 
again by the 7th and last treatment.  Thank you Anna, for giving me back my wings."

 "I have been bothered with symptoms of numbness, tingling, and burning in both hands for several years.  During the last few months, the symptoms became increasingly severe, waking me up at night and traveling down my right arm to end up in the center of my right palm.   A neurologist  diagnosed severe carpal tunnel syndrome.
 I began seeing Anna Cocilovo Symond  for acupuncture  twice a week , and the results have been phenomenal! My symptoms lessoned after the second visit to her, and now, after a only a few weeks of treatment, my symptoms have been reduced to only occasional annoyances, instead of ongoing, almost constant hindrances to my daily activities.  I am so pleased with every aspect of her care and concern for me - and I'm sure it extends to all her other patients as well".
Phyllis T.

"I am 72 years old, and have had back and leg pain for more than 3 years.  After seeing several doctors and rounds of physical therapy, there was no change.  I decided to call the Acupuncture Center of Prescott.  After only 3 treatments, I am more than 50% better.  I feel I'll be back to normal in a very short time, thanks to Anna."

June D.

"What a blessing it was to be referred to Anna! After visiting several
doctors in a search to relieve severe neck and shoulder pain, it was
recommended that I try acupuncture. A quick facebook request by my
daughter pointed me in Anna's direction when several people sang her
praises. I am so glad I took the advice of everyone involved!

 I was very impressed by the amount of time Anna spent acquiring my health
 history. She obviously wanted to help. After only two treatments, my
 pain is gone and I feel good as new. I know where I will be going FIRST,
should I feel my pain return.

 Thank you, Anna!"

“I suffered with kidney stone disease for over a decade and had yet one more scheduled for extraction, an uncomfortable, risky and extensive medical procedure.  I was visiting Anna for another medical concern, and she suggested acupuncture to enlarge the ureter tube to assist in the removal of the stone.  I thought, let's give it a try.  Later, the urologist, after successfully removing the stone remarked, “I've never seen such a large ureter before.  The stone literally jumped into the basket”.  That was my last  extraction of a kidney stone from the ureter even though I passed another half dozen over the next five years.  Years later an Xray of  my ureter tubes showed that one was visibly larger than the other.  Apparently, acupuncture in this case was quite long lasting.  I haven't had any stones for years now.”

“Anna Cocilovo Symond  is kind , patient, knowledgeable and respectful.  I have been treated by Anna for years off and on and she ALWAYS found the trouble spots, treated them and enabled me to live my life to the fullest.


One example is a pinched nerve in my upper back.  I was traveling on a plane in three weeks and didn't now what I would do because my right arm was radiating with pain to my upper back and spine.  Anna treated my pinched nerve.  I was able to get on the flight and on with my vacation with no pain whatsoever.


I had a fall which damaged my back, arms and knee.  Anna knew just what to do and got me healed.  I  turned to Anna for help in gaining strength back after an illness.  When any disabling incident comes back, I call Anna.  She  is amazing in knowing where to place the needles, enabling a person to leave her office like a new person.  I surely have!”
