Susan Jeffries is an amazing acupuncturist and healer. My back went out…I had to go to the emergency room. They did not fix the problem because they did not address the cause. I went to see Susan. She was very thorough in her questions and exam. She obviously cared and wanted to help relieve my pain. Susan Jeffries was very meticulous in her placement of the needles. She obviously is dedicated and compassionate. Always making sure I was fine. After she was done, I was able to stand up without pain…I had suffered for 24 hours  before… she relieved the pain in one session!!! I just went for my follow up 5 days later. I am still pain free:) Susan is truly amazing.

I would recommend Susan Jeffries to anyone who suffers from back pain.

Susan Jeffries is a talented, passionate, intuitive, and gifted healer.  I wanted to write a review and was left smiling because the review of 5/29/2013 is so similar to my experience.

I have been using holistic, integrative health care for the last 20 years and had built a wonderful group including an osteopath, a homeopath, an acupuncturist, and an integrative physician.  Then we moved a year ago from MN to CA and were faced with the very difficult task of trying to rebuild in a new state a good support team when needed.

I have tried three other acupuncturists in the last year and none measured the quality I was used to.  I gave up.  Then my lower back went seriously out and was so very painful.  I knew if I did not get some much needed care I would not be able to walk well or even move.  I was already walking sideways.  My Google search this time landed with Susan Jeffries and I felt like I had won the “healer lottery”.  I am not kidding.  Here are my thoughts after seeing her now four times.

She agreed to see me and offered such warmth and compassion from the moment I painfully walked through her door.  Her office is lovely, peaceful, clean and organized.  She spent some time in assessment and knew immediately right where the issue stemmed from and went to work to help me.

Her knowledge and use of motor points is spot on and such a powerful type of release when needles are done properly.  She knows her way around the body and how to manage someone in great pain. She has a delicate touch when inserting needles and knows how to manage the bodies response to her treatment.   She is also a massage therapist, so you are gifted with these strong and beautiful hands sending healing energy in addition to her expertise in use and placement of needles.

Seeing her allowed me to have one painful day, stiff and sore the next, and back to running the stairs to the beach and biking 45 minutes by the weekend.  No kidding!


One last bit of information about Susan.  She allows a proper amount of time with the needles in while you are resting in a quiet room with appropriate music.  I have never been able to understand an acupuncturist who will only leave the needles in for the shortest amount of time possible, has a room flooded in bright lights, and offers no mind/body understanding.  Susan is the polar opposite,  She is wonderful and I am so very blessed to have found her!

Last year, I had an exceptional opportunity in my life, but didn’t know it at the time. Purely by chance, my wife and I met Susan on a beautiful warm and sunny day in Dana Point. After having a short conversation with Susan, were convinced that this was a very special person. After telling us about her business, As Designed Wellness, and the benefits, we were so excited to see if she could help alleviate some of the physical issues we were having at the time. Little did we know that we would find more than a solution to aches and pains.


Susan is an exceptionally intuitive person who has the a the ability to “See” how you are.  I learned that Acupuncture and Massage were not something to “go to”, but something to experience. I was able to let myself go to see where this new experience would take me, and what an experience it was. I don’t think I have ever been so relaxed and comfortable like I was after “experiencing” acupuncture and massage with Susan. Not only that, Susan introduced me to Jin Shin Jyutsu. For the first time in my life, I understood what true meditation was all about. There are not enough superlatives to use to explain how amazing my visits are.

Susan has been helping me heal from multiple surgeries as well as muscle pain related to them. The results are amazing and her attention to healing my body have helped me feel so much stronger. I would give her ten stars if I could.

Simply life changing!  I have suffered from extreme lower back pain for years after severely damaging a disk.  Despite years of physical therapy, traction, weight loss, message, steroid shots, epidurals, and pain management, nothing relieved the pain.  That was until I met Susan.  After my first visit, I was pain free for the first time in years.  Not only does Susan take the time to listen and respond to you and your concerns and goals, she is able to read and treat your body, mind, and soul.


Susan is truly a gifted healer whom I am honored to know.  I have since brought my husband and sister who both were similarly amazed at her abilities.  I give Susan the highest rating and encourage anyone who is in chronic pain or even just wants to relax and unwind to seek out Susan.

I have had a series of appointments and am consistently sleeping better, less tense and dealing with stress in a much healthier way in all elements of my life.  Especially work and family.


Susan Jeffries makes each session powerful and she calmly explains the science behind everything she is doing, which is very comforting.
