“Over the past few years, Emily has not only helped me get through the chronic anxiety of divorce and the single parenting that ensued, but has also become a friend in the truest sense of the word. I can’t express how wonderful it is to feel HEARD by a health care professional and feel that they are part of your “health team” as opposed to what is commonly felt after visits with standard clinicians practicing in hospitals/offices in the United States. 

I honestly look forward to these appts (including but not limited to acupuncture, cupping, discussion of symptoms, herbal recommendations, discussion of various potentially useful blood tests, discussion of mental health, muscle testing, etc) and now consider them an integral part of my self-care.”

“I’ve been Emily’s patient for 3 years. She has a wonderful manner and comprehensive knowledge. She’s the best functional medicine doctor, nutritionist and acupuncturist I’ve ever been to! When I first met her, I was suffering from numerous conditions doctors couldn’t understand and treat, such as fainting, brain fog, low energy, joint pain, lower back, fatigue…etc. After seeing her for 6 months, I was a completely different person. I can’t thank her enough.”

“I’ve worked with Emily Glasser for over 18 months. I came to her with a wildly fluctuating auto-immune condition, Hashimoto’s. I was experiencing difficulties thinking clearly, night sweats, blood sugar fluctuations, frequent headaches, extreme thirst, and lack of stamina, energy and strength.  We focused on getting my thyroid under control and strengthening my internal organs, which had been stressed due to the auto-immune fluctuations.

I now have a well-managed thyroid function. My internal organs are making progress towards sustained health. My fuzzy head, insulin resistance, frequent headaches, and extreme thirst are gone.  I have a great deal more energy, stamina, and strength.

Emily’s support has been invaluable.  She is up-to-date with all the cutting edge research, understands the interconnectedness of how the body works and is able to share her knowledge in a way that is clearly understood. She provides compassionate, well-informed, and practical advice for how to shift whatever is going on.  

She is the best functional medicine practitioner I’ve ever worked with.

I recommend her highly!”

“Cannot speak highly enough of Emily.  Her professionalism and knowledge is unsurpassed.  She cares for her patients and gives personalized attention as I have received from no other in her field.  I am grateful for her care as I do not know where I would be without it other than in a hospital.  

I wholeheartedly recommend her with no reservation.”

“I have been a patient of Emily’s for 10 years. I have never met anyone more dedicated and willing to help me be well. Finding her was a miracle – I am so grateful. I have seen many doctors and specialists, and usually struggle to be heard. Emily listens – truly listens and seeks to read between the lines to figure out what’s really going on with me. She always knows just what to do and recommend. She takes the time to explain things so that I can understand and am empowered to do what I need for myself to feel my very best. She has an exceptional mind, a gracious heart and is an incredible woman — I recommend her strongly. Thank you Emily!!”

“I have been seeing Emily for 4 months now. It was my first experience with acupuncture and she made me feel very at ease. 

I initially came in concerned with chronic shoulder pain as well as in the elbow area. She has since gotten rid of both problem areas. I have a very active lifestyle in the gym, with sports etc. I am relieved to know acupuncture with Emily will always help me along the way.

She has also helped in other areas such as digestion and anxiety. I am so thrilled knowing acupuncture helps in all these areas!

I have never had such success with my health and wellbeing at any other kind of doctors office. Acupuncture has changed my life and I have Emily to thank and Universal Family Wellness Clinic.”

“I’ve been seeing Emily here for a couple of months. Came in for a couple of issues but mostly for headaches. I’d seen a few MDs and it always came down to allergies. Couple of times in the year I’d be sick, visit an MD to hear it was a sinus infection, or just allergy related. The headaches have improved, to about once a month, Emily is helping me narrow down the cause. 

She’s also been helping me with the jaw pain I get when I first bite into food. This is probably what I’m most excited about. First treatment was on the right side, my jaw felt so funny, in a good way, almost numb when I’d have a first bite. Treatment was Monday, pain came back around Wednesday. Second treatment was on the left side, treatment Monday, pain came back Thurs/Fri. Third treatment was on both sides. Treatment was Monday, pain didn’t come back till Friday, but since then it’s not consistently back. It feels so good leaving the clinic. No jaw pain and I feel so relaxed.”
