"So very happy and grateful to discover Dr. Gloria Martin Been searching for a Naturopathic Dr. / Acupuncturist in Hawaii Kai area for awhile and wish I had known about her a long time ago - but better late than never! Have had chronic back issues for about 12 years due to a past injury and through the years have gone to so many different doctors including osteopaths, chiropractors, 'body work healing', physical therapists, massage therapists, trigger point therapists, acupuncturists, etc. -- but none of their treatments lasted more than a few days. However, have recently had several treatments from Dr. Martin that have kept me 'pain free' for weeks before needing another treatment! This is the longest period of not having back pain and I look forward to being completely healed - which I know is already happening. She is a gifted healer and master in so many ways and is my special 'angel' ! Kind, caring and down to earth- she is an INCREDIBLE Doctor!!!"
"Absolute life changer! I have been suffering for 4 months with an unexplained itch in my left shoulder and elbow. Blood work had no answers, steroid cream did nothing, ice was the only fix (the internet diagnosed me with Brachioradial Pruritus w/no known cure or definitive cause).
For months I slept with ice packs on my arm going through 4 packs a night. It was an itch like a fiend. I was ready to cheese grater my arm off! I decided to try Acupuncture since no western medicine was working. Gloria absolutely cared about fixing me. I have done 4 sessions spaced out about a week each, and each time after it began giving me my life back. The itch became less often, or easier to calm, a night or two without ice and I am amazed and beyond THANKFUL to say I am four days and nights of no itch and no ice . I 100% would recommend Gloria. Appointment booking is easy, super friendly staff, very personalized plan of attack. My insurance doesn't cover acupuncture but it was worth every PENNY!"
"How many people can say they found the GOAT of a particular field/practice? (me me ME!! - waving hand in the air) I BELIEVE DR. MARTIN IS THE GOAT OF ACUPUNCTURE & MASSAGE!! First of all, wifey was looking for a Dr nearby that could help me with my shoulder/neck/back pains & migraines. She searched thru Yelp, BBB etc. Finally thru Yelp we found Dr. Martin with a 5 star rating. I really hate needles, but was willing to try anything at that point cause the pain was that bad. After the first treatment it felt like the pressure in my neck/shoulders was greatly improved. Now I see her at least every 2 weeks for maintenance. My migraines are few and far between. Before it was several times a month. She uses Chinese medicine & knows her stuff (she's been doing this for 35 years now) & she's Haole (a.k.a. Caucasian). After the first appointment, you can make your appointments online. We love her cause she's good at what she does. She really cares about fixing you up."
"Dr Gloria Martin is a sensitive caring and gentle healer. I went to her in a mess and walked out feeling so much better and optimistic about my prognosis. I would highly recommend."
"I am so thankful I have found Dr. Gloria Martin. She is awesome! I have had chronic knee pain and after my first visit my knee felt so much better, after my second visit I feel like I have had a knee replacement the pain has gone. Now she is working on other parts of my body. Yes I am falling apart lol. Old age. Gloria is very knowledgeable, kind, caring, and professional, with a great sense of humor. By far the BEST Acupuncturist around. Like other reviewers have stated she is a true gifted healer. I am a perfectionist by nature and I would not recommend anyone I did not have complete faith in. So if your looking for an acupuncturist pick up the phone make an appointment you will not be disappointed. I am so glad I did."
"I love this place! Gloria is very knowledgeable, resourceful and wise. She is always in a good mood and relaxed. She has been amazing in my healing process from a car accident where my neck and lower back got injured. She is seeing me under Geico non fault car accident and they have been making my experience very easy, relaxing, healing and pleasant. Together with physical therapy, I'm seeing great improvements and I feel amazing every time I leave my treatments. Thank you, Gloria!"
