“Hi Christina,All went really well. I started to have some contractions the following night after my acupuncture appointment. I was going to call for another visit on Thursday when my contractions briefly stopped, but within an hour my contractions were consistent. I went to the hospital that night and was admitted around 11pm. I had my little girl on Friday. She was born at 2:09pm, 6lbs 13oz, 19 in.Thank you so much for everything. You really are a miracle worker. 🙂
Good luck with the move. Wishing you all the best!
I wanted to Thank you again for all that you have done for my husband and I. We are so happy we found you a year ago when we wanted to start a family. The first month you helped us to try and conceive…we did!!!!!! And now we have a beautiful baby girl! Not only did you help us to conceive, but you also helped with all of my ailments during my pregnancy when I couldn’t take any medications. You are the best! I have been and will continue to recommend you to all that are open to acupuncture and alternative medicine.
Thank you again.”
I have never formally thanked you for all that you have done for me! When I came to you 3 months ago, I was at the end of a 12 year medical journey with only 1 solution, surgery. I was not ready. But you helped me so much you will never understand the strength you gave me! The doctors all told me that there was nothing wrong with me and that I would have to accept it and have the hysterectomy. A friend told me that I should talk to you before doing anything. From the very first appointment, you had to think I was crazy, but my headaches/migraines are gone, the allergies are gone, I lost 3 dress sizes (and yes I wear a bikini again!) and so much more. But the best part has been the self confidence I have gained back. I have told SO MANY people about you and the awesome treatments I have received, because it is the best thing I can think of to repay you is by bringing in others to experience it for themselves.
Thank you. Again from the bottom of my heart, thank you!”

I am so thankful that I was lead to you. What a joy and a blessing it was to come to you for acupuncture. You have a gift of kindness, understanding, compassion and assisting in healing. You also have a very sweet and loving spirit about you.
Every Thursday I left your office not only feeling mentally rested, physically recharged but also joy in my heart. Thank you for being all that you are and may God richly bless you, as you bless others.
In January of 2006 after having heard from various sources that acupuncture could help me with my fertility problems, I decided to reach out and try it. I came across Christina Prieto by chance. My very first visit was out of this world. I went in with road rage, tension and of course a little doubt. I left there the calmest I have ever been in my life. Immediately after talking to Christina for my initial consultation for about an hour, I knew that there was something very special about her and she listened and just seemed to "get" me. I continued seeing Christina for a year and a half. During that time I underwent many fertility procedures with a specialist while enhancing it with acupuncture. They all failed to assist me in conceiving. I saw Christina on a weekly or sometimes bi-weekly basis. I ended up getting cured of many more things than I anticipated. I used to take Claritin on a daily basis for allergies. I no longer need that. I used to have some slight incontinence, that was cured within a few months and then finally the best of all. I finally decided in December of 2006 I needed a break from Western medicine for fertility treatments. I had been told that I would need to get donor eggs in order to conceive. I wasn't quite ready to give up my dream. I continued to see Christina, she not only helped me physically but she also enhanced my spirit. There was never a doubt in her mind that I would be able to conceive on my own. I of course had my doubts, but continued on. I continued with weekly treatments. In June of 2007 my husband and I conceived....NATURALLY. Truly a blessing!
Christina has made me a true believer in Acupuncture. Not only is she a fantastic physician, but there is just something magical about her, that is hard to explain. I've always told her that she's a "natural" healer. And I truly believe that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for never giving up on my dream, even when I had lost hope at times!
My daughter, Jackie had been suffering from chronic headaches for almost five years. As you know, we have tried every conventional method to treat her symptoms. About four years ago, her primary care physician referred us to a neurologist who ordered an MRI, which determined that there was nothing physically wrong with her brain. Although I was extremely thankful, I was still frustrated with her daily headaches, which were very painful.
The neurologist diagnosed them as 'migraines' and prescribed anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, Topamax, Imitrex and countless combinations of all of them. After giving each medication or combination of medications a few weeks to take effect, I would contact the neurologist's office to advise them that Jackie was still experiencing headaches on a daily basis. They would then either add an additional medication or increase the dosage of a medication she was currently on. By this time, she was taking 2-4 Excedrin Migraine pills daily. Needless to say, I was at my wits end. I needed to get her off of the drugs which were not helping, but causing countless side effects. That is when I contacted you.
Right from the start, you asked all the right questions. You looked at her tongue, discussed her diet, asked about her lifestyle and eating habits and made recommendations. You were warm and comforting. The atmosphere in your office is calming and conducive to healing. Jackie started feeling better right away. I am so pleased to say that she feels so much better. Her headaches have gone from daily to maybe once per week and the severity of the pain has lessened dramatically.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know her and create a treatment plan designed specifically for her needs. My sixteen year old daughter can now live a normal life free of chronic pain. I have already recommended you to friends and family.
“Hi Christina! I am sorry that I haven't been in touch, I have been waiting for the holidays to pass and for all of my tests to be completed. I'm supposed to keep this under my hat (according to my superstitious husband) but since you have been on the long fertility road with me, I wanted you to be the first to know that I am expecting twins in September!
Can you believe it! The last acupuncture really put me over the top in terms of being ready to get those embryos!!!
I am very excited but also very overwhelmed. Twins wasn't exactly what I had in mind, but they'll be best friends and I'll have my family completed only being pregnant once.
I'm 7 weeks along so I'm just starting to feel symptoms, but no terrible nausea yet! If so, I'll be calling for an appointment or two.
I hope all is well with you and I hope to see you soon. I'll definitely stop by when I'm huge!”
“My husband and I really want to have a baby. But we learned that we did not produce enough sperm to lead to a pregnancy. Out of 3 sperm analyses, we only ever found ONE live sperm. Only those that have been diagnosed with infertility can understand the pain and suffering associated with it. We were emotionally prepared to go through in-vitro fertilization, but we needed sperm! We were at a loss with what to do. There is so much information available on what can be done to treat female fertility problems, but not much for what to do for male issues. I’d heard of stories of infertile women receiving acupuncture and successfully getting pregnant, but never men. I was surprised when I spoke with Dr. Christina Prieto the first time, and she suggested that correcting male-factor infertility is often easier than female issues. After only 3 months of acupuncture with her, a repeat sperm analysis revealed 1.3 MILLION sperm!!!! I’m blown away! I am confident that God used her hands, techniques, and recommendations to produce this miracle for us.”

Hello Miss Christina,
After two days of the worse back pain I can remember in years, I eagerly became acquainted with you and your caring and healing processes. I felt the moment I walked into your location, that I was important to you and you were going to help me. With my trust in you and your relaxing ways, I enjoyed the experience and felt immediate relief. Not only was I incredibly in less pain the next day, I was able to go to work on Monday as if I had never experience the agony of that weekend.
Over the past few days I have raved about you and your healing processes with friends, family and now coworkers. I hope I have encouraged them to become familiar with the same experience I have had, and hopefully they will be visiting you.
I wish you all the best and hope your practice continues to prosper. You are just what so many need.
My Best and Thank You,
Thank you so much for answering my e-mail in such a timely fashion and mostly for all the information that you sent. You have been so helpful and have given me a "starting point", along with some much needed HOPE. Since I never realized that an Acupuncturist deals with the issue of hair loss, I have long overlooked a very valuable resource. I am also a bit saddened that your practice is in Orlando, since you were so kind to take the time to help me in the best way that you could. Your patients are truly very lucky people!!!
Again, a very sincere, THANK YOU.”
Thank you so much for all of your help and caring along this journey with me. When I came to you I had been trying to conceive another child for 7 months and my OBGYN had told me nothing was wrong and that I needed to just "keep trying". After just two months I am so happy to be pregnant again. Along with this I feel so great. After the acupuncture and herbs I feel healthier now than I have ever been in my life. My anxiety has definitely lightened up and my physical pains are non-existent.
I came to you with an open mind but I did not expect such wonderful results so quickly. I have recommended you to a few friends with health issues and a few that are struggling to get pregnant. I am confident that you will help them and make them as comfortable as you did with me during our sessions together.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I just wanted you to know that I got great results from your Acupuncture treatments for my back pain. Thank you for the great treatments but most of all thank you for taking the time to listen to me. I appreciate your knowledge of alternative medicine and your caring human nature.”
I came to your office about 3 weeks ago from a co-worker's referral, since my husband and I have been trying to conceive our second child for over a year and half. Unfortunately, I had "unexplained" secondary infertility. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical, but since my co-worker had two friends experience success with your help, I came with an open mind, and thought I'd give it a try. I had already been seeing a reproductive endocronogist for 6 months and was about to have my 5th (and final!) IUI attempt. If this didn't work, my husband and I had resolved to progress to IVF, and the additional stress and cost that goes with it! I went to two sessions at your Center-- the first, with Terry the day of my IUI and then with you, on the 6th day to help promote implantation. During both sessions, you both made me feel comfortable, and helped relief my stress.
I'm happy to report that I am now pregnant! I went to the reproductive clinic this morning to confirm pregnancy with a blood test, and my Beta HCG levels are right on target.
Thanks again for the help and support! I truly didn't expect results so quickly!
Wanting to let you know of a wonderful Acupuncturist for those of you who have expressed interest in resuming treatments. I know many of you have completely stopped acupuncture since I closed up shop. Well, your wait is over. Her name is Christina Prieto and she's incredible. Her style, treatment approach, and level of care are very similar to mine. She's conveniently located in Winter Park for those of you looking for an easy travel. I will personally be working with Christina on your cases, sharing my treatment style and protocols with her to ensure a smooth transition. Here is her contact info:
On a personal note, Seattle is treating us splendidly! I am building my practice and have really found a large, supportive holistic health care community here in which to thrive. Thanks to those of you who wrote incredible reviews for me on Seattle City Search. You're kind and inspirational words have brought me many new patients. I am currently working on my website and will be constructing a testimonials page - mostly for women's health issues and will use some of your reviews if that is alright. If anyone else would like to be a part of that, please email me.
Attached is our beautiful Zoe...14 months now. I love being a momma - she's a very busy little girl that keeps us on our toes!
Anyway, keep in touch. Would love to hear how everyone is doing.
So get off your butts and call Christina - you know who you are (wink wink)....
You'll be glad you did.
Miss you all!

I came to see you for several different health problems, including muscular pain, digestive problems, and stress. Thank you for being such a great help. I feel that you have an incredible ability to ask just the right questions to associate my symptoms with the causes, and the results have been excellent.”
I can't express enough how appreciative I am since I've been coming to you for acupuncture. I gave up on Western medicine. I had been sick for 6.5 months with incapacitating abdominal pain. I also mentioned to my gastro doctors, I had malabsorption and digestive problems but they said my tests came back normal and didn't persue it any further, but I knew this was another problem. You were the first one who actually stated that just by looking at my tongue.You were the first one to ask about my diet and gave me one to follow.
You have great instincts, very knowledgeable, very caring and take the time with your patients (which is rare in traditional medicine). I feel you have been God sent to me.I feel hopeful and happy and am back to work. I know I still have along way to go but I'm on the right road now with your expertise. I was beginning to feel that I may have to go on long-term disability and did not want that to happen.
I've missed a lot while being sick because without your health you have nothing. So you've actually given me my life back and I can't thank you enough! I've become a real advocate regarding acupuncture and homeopathic medications. I've been making a lot of people aware of how beneficial acupuncture can be. I am living proof. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Take care and God Bless”
I just wanted to let you know that my treatment yesterday helped a LOT.
If I had any doubts that the acupuncture is helping, they are gone. I
felt pretty bad when I came in yesterday and the needles really hurt
going in. However, afterwards as I left, I realized that I definitely
felt better than when I came in... I was much calmer and not as tense... And I
improved even more over the new few hours... By late afternoon, I was
feeling 100% better than I had in the morning.
I've not had one migraine which is just unbelievable. I still can't believe how you have helped me and I've tried many, many things, believe me. You are the greatest!!!”

Thanks for everything you have been doing for Chris. His lower back is totally fine and his face is looking better. The herbal treatment you gave him is amazing, really works.
