Hear From Metsuyan Wellness Clients: 

I cannot recommend Nikki highly enough! I had never had acupuncture before seeing her and was a bit apprehensive about it, but she explained the whole process and was so gentle. She is one of the kindest people I have ever met in my entire life. She starts each appointment talking to you and hearing about what is bothering you. I first went to see her for pain management for what I later found out was a ruptured disc in my back that would ultimately require surgery. I was experiencing severe 10/10 pain and her techniques were able to make it manageable and allow me to go to work/be functional for a few days. I noticed I experienced mental clarity in addition to pain relief on days I saw her. My boyfriend even pointed out how much better my pain level and overall demeanor seemed on days I saw her when I was experiencing my ruptured disc.

Most of all, her gentle personality and genuine care for her patients’ well-being is what I loved most about seeing her. I will always remember how kind she was to me when I was in so much pain. I will miss her dearly now that I’ve moved out of state.
Also, if you’re afraid of acupuncture, don’t be! They are super tiny and you don’t even feel some of them. Plus she makes the environment super comfy with pillows, cozy blankets and soothing sounds playing.

Nikki is a gifted acupuncturist with a healing touch. She listens deeply and brings instant relief in a caring and gentle manner. Her office is lovely and inviting. You will feel so much better when you leave!

I’ve been seeing Nikki now for several years and have followed her from various offices to her own new beautiful location in Rockville.  I am convinced she’s got a magical healing touch.  No matter what shape I come in, I always leave feeling better and that great feeling lasts and improves even hours and days later.  I can’t even count how many times she’s saved me so I wouldn’t be held back from living life fully due to a chronic inflammatory condition.  She has stopped flares from progressing, relieved migraine headaches, fatigue, back and join paint to mention just a few.  If it weren’t for Nikki, my daughter (who suffers from a connective tissue disorder) would not have been able to follow through with an overseas commitment she had.  It was her first time doing acupuncture and it was the most positive experience. Literally we both came in barely walking and functioning and within hours, our flares began to resolve completely. She is the kindest and gentlest person who makes you feel immediately at ease.  I’ve tried several other practitioners before Nikki with mixed reviews, but now I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Nikki was nothing short of wonderful with my daughter who has multiple health conditions that cause pain, GI and pelvic problems. We saw her on a recommendation of a friend.

Nikki spent a significant amount of time wanting to know about my daughter’s health history, treatments and medications. Since this takes a long time to explain, Nikki regularly paused to asked my daughter if she needed a break or some water. She was so sweet and never rushed us.

She provided privacy while my daughter undressed, leaving undergarments on. The therapy bed was heated and Nikki made sure my daughter was comfortable.

We decided on just a few needles for the first time. Nikki explained as she worked checking with my daughter with every needle insertion. She offered natural sounds or soft music while the needles stayed in.

My daughter was happy with her experience! Nikki is everything you would want in an acupuncturist sweet, nonjudgmental, patient, gentle, thoughtful and professional. We will be back again and I think I will try her for myself for back pain!

I have a peripheral neuropathy that causes a constant burning sensation of my feet. Medication has helped somewhat, but has significant side effects. My daughter has had acupuncture for over a year by Nikki Richman for a variety of issues, with relief. She suggested I see Nikki. I thought since I had persistent symptoms why not try something that has been practiced for 3000 years. As a retired physician this required a significant leap of faith, one that I am glad I took.
Nikki‘s treatments have significantly alleviated my symptoms.
She has blended agent eastern medicine with present day science. She is kind, thorough, competent and painless.
In the 33 years at practiced medicine I had the pleasure and honor to work with several people who were skilled in bedside manner, in procedural dexterity, and in cognitive learning. Nikki has all of these attributes.
I do not think it is possible to find a practitioner of acupuncture who blends science and art more skillfully then Nikki Richman.
