“Acupuncture! Jori Azinger is the best!!!! No more pain and my heart doesn’t feel like It’s going to go flying out of my chest, also hugs. The hugs are the best! True heart, mind, body and soul healing. She leaves nothing out! Xoxo” – KM Brown Deer” – K.M., Brown Deer, WI


“I went to my Osteopath at 9:15 this morning for a treatment to address spine pain. I left that treatment with even more pain, apparently from the dynamics of the treatment. I had an acupuncture treatment from you at 3:30 this afternoon and felt an immediate lessening of pain. It’s now 8:00 pm and the pain is 80% gone! I know I will sleep good tonight because the acupuncture. Thank you, Jori!” – R.L., Thiensville, WI


“Hi Jori,
We moved to Florida and next Tuesday we move into our newly built home. We’re both very excited. I miss our talks and will always be grateful for the time we had together. I haven’t had time to find another acupuncture practitioner, but no one can replace you. Take care and keep in touch, if you have time. Very sincerely,” – M.O., FL


“Hi Jori,
I really want to thank you for making time for me and for working with me under a time issue. I felt so much better for many reasons after spending time with you on Monday. Thank you for listening and for being there for me.  I relaxed for the first time in a bit and slept well that night. I look forward to seeing you on Friday. I feel like I am in the right place in your care. Thank you for being you! ” – J.M., Cedarburg, WI


“Ok Jori…..so this is amazing to me and I had to share. Rib pain—gone. Completely gone. I was laying in bed last night and sat up like a shot and said out loud ‘oh my goodness….my rib pain is gone’ and then I realized it hadn’t hurt all day….and it doesn’t hurt today either….I’m so so thankful!! Thank you so much!!!! Hope you had a great weekend! God bless.” – H.M., Port Washington, WI


(Part 1 – 7/9/12) “Awesome session. My belly, my everything feels SO different. Awake might be the word. I need more ASAP! 🙂 Thank you!”

(Part 2 – 7/22/12) “JORI! I have lost another 2 #’s since my session, effortlessly, gaining postural and abdominal tone. Not that I don’t want to put forth any effort, but this is more typical of my pre-baby body. I LOVE YOU! That’s a total of 4# closer to my goal, my friend!!”
– N.F., Mequon, WI


“Tonight…amazing.
I feel like a million bucks. That buzzy sensation is gone. Just a lot of very old stuff that needed to be discharged. Thank you. A true breakthrough….and that moon!!!! OMG!!!” – N.K., Mequon, WI


“Jori,
I think as I wean off of ALL meds, my body reacted so so so well to yesterday’s acu and the traumeric blend as of last night! Less swelling and so much less pain! I am so pleased. Thank you healing lady,” – M.W., Milwaukee, WI


“Hi Jori,
Overall, I feel better than I have in a long time.  I slept through the night, waking once around 4, and wondering if I would go back to sleep.  No problem, I did until 7 AM, which has not happened in a long time.” –D.T., Slinger, WI


“Jori,
I have to share some great news – the Himematsutake completely healed my belly button.  No sign of redness or pain!!  LOVE IT!!! Thanks again!!!” – J.W., Port Washington, WI


“Jori,
I just wanted to share with you that the acupuncture for M… was a success.  She did not experience any of her usual symptoms of cramping and vomiting and was able to make it through the school day today.” – D.S. Mequon, WI


“Good Morning Jori,
I had a wonderful complete full night sleep last night and today I can take a deep breath without chest pains!!!!!!!!!!!! I also feel a bit more chipper!!  Didn’t realize how far I sunk in the depression department, wow. Now I feel like I want to exist again, I was just going through the motions before. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Love” – M.C., West Bend, WI


“Thank you for being you! And for your understanding, compassion and wisdom.” – N.F, Mequon, WI


“Slept through the night (with an extra blanket:o) Life is good…………thanks Jori.” – JM, Thiensville, WI


“I have had pain in my knees when climbing or descending stairs for more than a decade. I sought Jori’s help for this and several other health issues I’ve been facing. During the course of treatment, I felt really well taken care of… I felt like I was in capable hands. But beyond her expertise, Jori’s warmth and openness of heart always helped me relax and let the healing take place. That being said, I must admit that I began as a doubter of Eastern Medicine. The only reason I had come for acupuncture was to appease a dear friend who continued to nag me to do so. I honestly did not think this approach to healing would work for me. Then one day about 3 months into treatment, I had a dramatic change of heart. I was standing at the top of a staircase ready to take the first step down, and I was bracing myself against the pain as had become my habit. But suddenly I realized there was no pain at all. None. The symptoms had been getting better slowly all along, but I hadn’t really taken note of that until they were…  just gone. It seemed miraculous. And six months later it seems even more so, because the pain has not returned – even though I stopped treatment months ago. Needless to say, I am now a firm believer in the healing potential of acupuncture, and I highly recommend that it be delivered by Jori – a very talented and compassionate healer.” – T.P., Richfield, WI


“Hi Jori,
I just wanted to let you know that I think you must have hit the spot with this last acupuncture..I am amazed.. I have virtually no pain..for the past several days..it’s the first time since Oct that I have had over a day of no pain..I am so grateful. I will be in on Tuesday for another visit..I am on my way to a healthy jaw again. Thanks so much,” – P.O., Menomonee Falls, WI


“Jori,
It’s been about a month since my last treatment and this note is LONG overdue!  I just want to let you know that I am pain free! It is amazing. I have no pain in my knee and leg.  I can’t thank you enough.  I never thought this day would come.  I thought I would just have to live with the pain.  Now I can live without the pain! Thank you so much. I hope all is well with you. Best wishes always.” – R.R., Mequon, WI


“Dear Jori,
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Here it is Friday, and I haven’t had even a twinge in my neck, let alone the awfully painful spasm I came in with on Monday afternoon! Even though the spasm and pain continued during the treatment and it hurt getting up off the table, the pain slowly diminished the rest of Monday and by Tuesday morning, it was gone altogether! The muscles in my neck have slowly gotten softer and more relaxed, since then too. I’d like to schedule a follow-up appointment with you for next week, Tuesday or Wednesday, just to make sure those muscles stay relaxed and pain-free!” – R.L., Thiensville, WI


“Hi Jori,
I have to tell you how relaxed and good I feel since acupuncture this morning.  I have to tell you a funny story (something I normally would have been irate about but i was so relaxed it didn’t even bother me) – i was driving home and all of a sudden something started spraying all over my car – my windshield, dashboard, ceiling, etc.  i looked down and a 2 Liter bottle of soda that had gotten stuck under a seat rolled out and had a big hole in it and it was spraying all over the car – normally I would have been really upset, etc. but i ended up just laughing about the whole thing – it was a mess to clean up though! so thank you again – you have worked majic!! Looking forward to next thurs at 10:30!” – J.W. Port Washington, WI


“Jori,
Just wanted to let you know how much you have helped me the past few days!  I had the chance to talk with my therapist this morning, who has many clients looking for acupuncture. I sent her this [below] and hope  you can handle all the business!  Much love and look forward to continued progress on our Journeys together. Thanks for the meeting this morning.  Here is my favorite acupuncturist Jori Azinger – 262-242-6521.  I’ve read many of her testimonials and have my very own, she has been the most gifted healer in Acupuncture I have ever encountered and has so many other special talents of reading people and their needs. I would recommend her to any one of your clients.  I’ve included her latest e-mailer with email address and location near you.” – J.S. Mequon, WI


“Great session. Good results both structurally, emotionally, symptom relief wise. Thanks so much!” – N.F, Mequon, WI


“Hi Jori,
I just wanted to let you know that I feel wonderful (almost afraid to jinx it) – anxiety is pretty much gone… tremors are great – very minimal… what is interesting is I was so use to them that now I wait for them to happen… i am SO SO HAPPY with whatever you are doing… cannot tell you enough how blessed I am to have found you!!!” – J.W. Port Washington, WI


“Jori,
I could not wait until my next appointment to tell you I had a normal period… not painful at all, heavier the first day… not for 3 or 4! No PMS… well, maybe sugar cravings (which were not granted) and a little tired; Not the usual knock me off my blocks fatigue. YES!!!!!!! Just wanted to let you know that everything has been falling in place since my last session. I hope to get in again soon. I proclaim you’re magnificent!” – N.F. Mequon, WI


“Hi, Jori!
Amazing session last night. Lots and Lots of new changes, especially postural changes. This morning I actually ached like I worked out!!! I feel my body getting back to normal. Also, I have a great sense of being and peace :)” – N.F. Mequon, WI


“Hi Jori,
Thanks for the update… I truly want to take some of your courses in the future. I will be seeing you on Sat. at noon.  I have to tell you that I know I am on my way to getting much better. My pain has been so much less and I am walking better.  NOT perfect, but better. You have been a miracle worker in my and my husband’s lives and we truly appreciate you. Also, love those Moxa sticks. In addition, I haven’t been able to pay you as regularly as I wanted, and it bothers me. This will be a better month for us as I am working more hours and the business seems to be getting better. Thank you for your patience.” – S.W. Fox Point, WI


“Hi Jori,
I have been meaning to send you an email or voicemail for several days and my world continues to be so incredibly busy that this is my first moment to sit down and formally thank you for the excellent treatment you gave me.  I have had absolutely no dizziness and lack of weakness since the treatment.  I think I would like a followup anyway (because I’m depleting myself with overworking and lack of sleep).  So, could we schedule something for this coming Monday (a week from yesterday)? You are truly a gifted healer.  Thank you SO much.” – E.W. Cedarburg, WI


“Hi Jori,
My own well being is very stabilized, and the work you’ve done with me has accelerated my own personal well being on all levels, more than I could ever have hoped for. I am so grateful. Love you my dear, and thank you, my life if blessed because of you.” – C.P. West Bend, WI


“Hi,
Wanted to let you know that I felt great after our session. I still had the pain and tightness in the back of the knee but it wasn’t as severe. I felt great for the rest of the night. I was so relaxed. I also only got up once to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. I woke up Thursday morning not as tired. My legs were not in pain but still felt heavy. I got up and started moving assuming that I would feel the pain back. I am glad to tell you the pain did not come back in the left knee or ankles. The right knee had a little pain. I left work today not in pain just a little stiff.  I remembered you asking me if I have pain in my lower back and I replied occasionally but nothing serious. Well, today I have a dull pain in lower back. It is a nagging pain but nothing like the pain that was in my legs. With being nearly pain free last night my libido was there, that was a great blessing. Thank you again.” – M.C. Milwaukee, WI


“Dear Jori,
I just wanted to say a most sincere thank you for being sooooo understanding and flexible with my appointments. You have really been a blessing in my life. Even when you challenge me to make healthier choices, and I know it is for my best interests, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your kindness, care, concern, and compassion. You are really one of a kind. I also wanted to let you know that I have been more focused since we started the full body type sessions and I am actually getting a few things done. Thought you would like to know. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” – J.M. Milwaukee, WI


“Hi Jori,
I wanted to give you a heads-up on someone I just sent a get well card to. A girl in my son’s 4th grade class has been having terrible headaches (dad pointed to the “3points” area on his forehead!) and trouble balancing. She missed 3 weeks of school and has gone through all the expected medical tests. The doctors can’t find anything and the girl is still not ok. I just met the dad last night at a meeting, I could tell he has a positive attitude, but of course feels quite helpless.  Here is what I hand wrote to them in a letter and if you want to, you can cut and paste some of it for a testimony: I know what a relief it is to know the doctors can’t find anything wrong, yet also have a lingering feeling that something still is not quite right. Last May I was very sick and doctors were concerned I might have Appendicitis. Tests and a CT scan confirmed I was ok, but I was still sick. I was sick again the same way in July. I was exhausted from tests and reluctant to face more surgery or add to my already long list of medications. Sensing I was willing to try something different before doing anything traumatic, a friend of mine asked if I was open to acupuncture. I had been curious about it for awhile, but until then I didn’t have an urgent reason, and I didn’t know how to find someone reputable. My friend recommended Jori Azinger in Thiensville (about as far a drive as Children’s Hospital). She is a Wisconsin Board Licensed Acupuncturist. (and a mother of 5 grown children!) You will not find a more attentive, caring listener, and she does not seek to replace MDs. She spoke on the phone with me for 15 minutes when I called to make an appointment. Then she listened to me for nearly an hour before we even began the first treatment. All of this cost less than $100! I felt relief in my stomach after one session, and that problem has not returned!” – T.S. West Bend, WI


“When I came to see Jori I had extreme anxiety from a hormone imbalance due to menopause and many stressful situations in my life.  I thought I was going crazy and wanted to jump out of my skin.  I had heart palpitations, I couldn’t sleep, I had no appetite and my mind was racing with worried thoughts, my perception was way off.  I thought I would never feel good/normal again but after 3 visits of acupuncture I feel 100%, actually better than ever.  I am sleeping great, eating again, my mind is clear and thoughts are positive again.  I noticed I also have better vision!  I am so  thrilled this was accomplished by acupuncture and I didn’t have to put one drug in my system which I strongly wanted to avoid!  Jori and her acupuncture was a miracle worker for me.  She truly cares about the people she treats.” – D.P. Saukville, WI


“Jori,
I just had to email you to say THANK YOU!!! I forgot to wear my back support today. And I forgot I had a back problem!!!!!! I don’t have any pain and it is already 1 PM! Bless you” – M.C. West Bend, WI


“Jori,
Thank you so much for all that you did to help my daughter. You literally saved her life, I believe. The doctors at the hospital were only able to give her high doses of pain medication and had nothing else to offer. You took her into your beautiful office within hours of her release from the hospital… with only a phone call from me. You were able to teach her how to care for herself. You gave her treatments that helped the severe pain she was feeling.  You saw her every single day until she was able to manage on her own. You were amazing! I hope your clients appreciate all that they have in you. We need to get the word out to the entire community so that others can benefit from your incredible services. May God Bless You.” – J.W. MI


“I enjoyed my acupuncture treatment.  You have a great technique.  That evening I had an uncomfortable sensation in the solar plexus area, particularly the right side.  It really felt like a shift.  Since then the discomfort had completely vanished.  The murmur I had felt in the heart area stopped as well.  I also confronted (spouse) on a couple of issues I was having difficulty with that evening.  All squared away.  All in all I would say I had a very fruitful experience.”  – M.B. Fox Point, WI


“Hi Jori,
I don’t know if you remember me but I came in a few times for acupuncture. I had missed our last appointment and haven’t come in since. I apologize for that and didn’t want you to think it was because I didn’t believe in you or the acupuncture. Actually, it is the first thing I have done in my life that actually had made a difference. I can’t promote it enough and have been passing out your name to everyone I know. I can’t even put in to words how the sessions with you made me feel. I am now a huge believer in acupuncture and absolutely love going to you. I had to stop coming in for now because of financial reasons. Our business my husband and I run kind of took a “wrong turn” and money has been lacking to put it lightly. That’s why I haven’t been able to reschedule. Which is really a catch 22 because with all the stress from our finances, I really could use it more. I didn’t want you to think though that I didn’t enjoy coming to HeartSpace. As soon as I am able, I will begin our sessions again. I love you and HeartSpace so much that I have been referring everyone I know to you. I think of you often and I hope to see you as soon as I can. Thank you so much for bringing this into my life. Sincerely,” –  J.F.


“Hello Jori,
This is J.R. I have been a client of yours. How are you? Your treatments helped me very much, along with our discussions we had. You always have been an inspiration for me. You would always say the right words to make me think more deeply in my thought. We talked in the past about making changes. Well I did make the change. I have changed my job to a better environment. I have moved to Tucson, AZ. We have been here now for about 2 months and love it. I thank you for all your help. I have not had any major problems with my sinus, since I last saw you. Being here has made it even better. I believe that while I was receiving my acupuncture treatments I would be able to go into a deep state of mind and the think more clearly about where I need to take my life. Which has brought me to where I am today. I believe that the power of our minds will take us to where we need to be if we slow down and take the time to look at what we have and what we are blessed with. Some people would be very surprised of what they might see. If you want something bad enough you can get there. I get up every day now and I am very thankful for what I have; my wife and her love, my health, sun light, the mountains, and everything that I can see. Again I thank you for all your help of inspiration and my treatment of acupuncture. You’re a blessing to have known, I am very grateful to meet and have such a wonderful person like you in my life. Hope to hear from you, and have a wonderful day.” – J.R. Tuscon, AZ


“Dearest Jori,
Just a note to let you know how precious are those “HeartSpace” hours in my life, and how grateful I am for your presence in my life, your generous and loving spirit, your openness in sharing your thoughts and wisdom, your loving care not only of me, but of my daughter. All of these are appreciated so very much and have had a profound and healing effect not only on our bodies, but our hearts, minds and souls. I deeply appreciate our talks, and your honesty and insight into my circumstances and life have truly been like the shade going up on the window, and the light which has poured in has been so desperately needed and so greatly appreciated. You are a gift in my life, and I thank you so much for all you have done for me, all you have shared, and all you continue to do. You are awesome, and I am blessed to know you, and so grateful. God bless you always, Love and light” – D.B. Cedarburg, WI


“Jori,
I just wanted to thank you for doing what you do.  I feel like a whole new person today!  What you do and the way you do it is not a job – it’s a calling. Blessings” – N.N. Fredonia,WI


“Jori,
I just had to let you know that after I saw you, we got water in the basement and my mantra was “don’t be a victim!” You have helped me SO much! Thanks and have a great day! Blessings” – B.M. Cedarburg, WI


“After over thirty years of chronic depression, lots of therapy, self help books and various healthful practices such as meditation, yoga and good nutrition, I was fired by my most recent therapist (with whom I had been working sporadically for 5 years) for my continued refusal to consider anti-depressants. Several years ago, I had been on Paxil for a few months and I knew I did not ever want to take drugs for depression again, unless I was suicidal or completely non-functional. I felt VERY discouraged after my experienced therapist (backed by all of her colleagues) gave me the message that in her opinion, without chemicals I would never be able to do more than just cope – even with all of the diligent work I was doing to care for my mental, physical and spiritual health. That night, knowing that consuming alcohol was the absolute worst plan, I decided to do just that. Much to the surprise and dismay of my husband (whom I frequently lecture about healthy habits), I drank most of a bottle of wine and then a rapid succession of multiple martinis. It wasn’t pretty. The next morning, I was in no condition to go to Nia (joyful leaping was out of the question!) and then out to breakfast afterward with Jori as planned. Unfortunately, (or as it turned out, very fortunately) I didn’t crawl out of bed in time to cancel, so I sat out in the HeartSpace parking lot with my sunglasses on until after class. After hearing my tale of woe, Jori convinced me that I should try acupuncture. In desperation (but without a whole lot of faith) I began seeing her twice a week. Within a very short period of time, I went from the worst depression I had experienced in almost a decade (and allow me to assure you that it was quite grim) to a state of intense joy. I felt an amazing physical opening in my upper back and chest area (I have always carried what felt like a large metal vault of tension, anxiety and pain in my upper back and my posture has been hunched forward as if protecting my heart.) I heard little popping noises in my shoulders and neck and I was able to move better. My breathing deepened (bringing an enormous sense of relief and well being), my hands tingled and I felt a spiritual opening of my heart as well. Suddenly, every time I picked up anything to read, listened to music, watched a movie or talked to anyone, I got the same messages to open my heart and connect my body, mind and spirit. I renewed my commitment to accepting and observing with compassion whatever I was experiencing (including depression) without resisting or running for medication with drugs, food or alcohol. This is not to say that I have become an ascetic or that I will always sail blissfully through every challenge. I know this is a life’s work, but acupuncture helped me break through the blockages in my energies that were exacerbating my suffering, and started me on a new path of true healing. I am profoundly grateful.” – M.S. Milwaukee, WI


“Hello Jori,
Thanks again for the session this afternoon. I am very pleased with the results. Thanks again, and God Bless You.” – T.R. Milwaukee, WI


“Jori,
There’s no question in my mind that acupuncture shortened my labor and made it more tolerable for me. There’s no question in my mind that it was incredibly helpful to have you there and have acupuncture during labor. If I didn’t mention that before, know that I’ve been thinking that all along!” –A.H. Saukville , WI


“Hi Jori,
I had such an interesting experience last night that I had to shoot off an e-mail to you. I can hardly wait for my next treatment!!! First, I couldn’t believe that 30 minutes went so quickly – I really thought I’d only been on the table for about 10 minutes when you came back in to take out the needles. As I was heading home, I noticed that there was no pain shooting down my leg, no aching – which has been pretty much non-stop for several weeks. Driving only aggravates it, so I noticed that these issues were not present. All the discomfort was now located in that area on my right posterior hip area (the place that breaks out in herpes). It was very present, swirling, tingling, still hot and very sensitive to the touch. Later in the evening, the herpes began to break out – it has since quieted down a bit, but still very sensitive and very present. (The herpes episodes have not been present for maybe a year…so it would seem that something broke loose). I took the American Ginseng last night (and again this morning). I slept quite soundly – I did wake up to go the bathroom but evidently went easily back to sleep and woke up at 5:45 a.m. this morning!!! That’s about 45 minutes later than my typical rise time. As I was drifting off to sleep last night there was a soothing (but somewhat mysterious) internal rocking motion in my upper body – like being rocked softly and gently in a body of water. When I tried to emulate the motion in my lower body by actually physically rocking my lower body, the upper body sensation stopped. As soon as I quieted my own manipulative movements, the upper body began to gently rock again. It was so soothing. So my dear friend – I’m so looking forward to my next treatment. I don’t know what you were planning for the next treatment, and I in no way wish to manipulate your intuition (not that I could anyway!), BUT I would be very interested in doing something surrounding the sensitive area on my posterior!!! If I remember right, you would get to that area eventually anyway – just thought I’d put my bid in now!!! Love and healing light” – J.C. Hartland, WI


“Hello Jori,
Thanks so much for taking me as a new patient. I am so excited I needed to tell you -how things are from my end. For the first time in months my stomach was great – No Pepto Bismol today. My hands were warm for 45 minutes after I left you yesterday. My right hand is less numb, my right hip is less aching and I feel a little better. My left side doesn’t feel ANY BETTER. My left side is not on circuit yet the connection is broken between the halves. Also no terrible headache today. I really felt like I was dying inside since April and no where to turn. I know you are the answer to my prayers – No pressure there – Ha Ha! Sincerely” – K.B. Cedarburg, WI


“I have M.S. but M.S. does not have me. Over the years since I was diagnosed the pain in my legs has gone from aggravation to excruciating. I had already increased the dosage of the pain patches prescribed to 75 mil. every three days. The next step would be a morphine regimen that could lead to dependence and addiction. This was someplace I did not want to go. I then heard about acupuncture and decided to give it a try. After all I had nothing to lose but my pain. After a couple of treatments, it was like a miracle. My pain has subsided to where it is minor and tolerable and with each session seems to keep on improving. I believe it will be completely eliminated in the near future with continued treatments.” – A.D. Kewaskum, WI


“Thank you again for the treatment last week. For about 2 1/2 hours my back continued to hurt and feel strange and unstable. Then it got great.” –G.C. Milwaukee, WI


“Dear Jori,
You are such a blessing! I just wanted to let you know how well Friday’s treatment went: My pain level is greatly reduced, although my neck is still very limited in mobility etc. Thank you so much for providing me with some pain-free moments!” – E.L. Mequon, WI


“Hey Jori,
I just wanted to tell you, I actually had totally forgotten about my neck. I can’t believe whatever you did was absolutely fantastic. I just – I feel wonderful. And I – I just wanted to say thank you so very much! Talk to you later. Thanks again Jori” – C.B. Mequon, WI
