Testimonials

“I was at my wit’s end with seasonal allergies and multiple bouts of bronchitis, when a dear friend recommended her acupuncturist – nutritionist Charlotte Sobeck. From the moment I began working with Charlotte, I have appreciated her ability to listen to my concerns, allay my fears and gently encourage me as I began to make dietary changes and adopt new health practices– some very simple–to bring my body back into balance. Over time, I have not been sick as often and neither has my family, which was noticeable even to our pediatrician who asked what we’d been doing differently. And when we have been sick or assaulted by Austin’s mix of mold and cedar, I know how better to handle it for myself and our family, so we all feel better. Charlotte has taught me how to forge my own path to health and for that I am eternally grateful.” — Amy, Austin, Tx.


After suffering with serious digestive and lung problems for a number of years and getting no relief from “medical” doctors, a friend referred me to Charlotte.  She took the time to question me about all things relating to my conditions, and then crafted a treatment plan including herbs, vitamins,  and acupuncture, as well as nutritional suggestions.  Over the last couple of years I’ve continued to see her and she’s revised the plan as my needs have changed.  Now I know how Lazarus felt, because at times I really do feel like I’ve been raised from the dead!  Can’t recommend her services highly enough. — Rebecca, Austin, Tx


Charlotte has helped me to get back on track with my self care and health. She is a wealth of information and really takes the time to listen to what I have to say. She has helped me with occasional cedar allergies and boosting my immune system. I love her emphasis upon a seasonal, organic, and local diet as well as the importance of a healthy gut. She has been there for me when I really needed her, and with this said, I would highly recommend her to anyone. — Lisa, Montessori teacher/guide


I was considering counseling for anger management during an unusually stressful time at work. A friend who had just come from acupuncture treatment for back pain commented that she always felt calm after acupuncture. I asked Charlotte if her acupuncture treatments could give me that same calm, and she designed a treatment program for me. Her acupuncture treatments produce a deep calmness and relaxation that I have not otherwise experienced, not even from regular massage therapy. As a result of Charlotte’s acupuncture, my emotions and anger are controlled. As an added plus, Charlotte is always attentive to my overall health and to relieving my various aches and pains. I am sold on Charlotte’s acupuncture, and I include her treatments as a regular part of my plan for a healthy life. — Tim, Austin, Texas


Both my husband and I see Charlotte on a regular basis and she has also cared for my toddler.  Unlike Western doctors, Charlotte doesn’t just treat our symptoms with medicine.  Charlotte spends the time to find the underlying cause and heal our immune systems.  Charlotte introduced us to traditionally-prepared foods, and it has changed our lives forever. I feel great and my asthma and allergy symptoms have virtually disappeared. My daughter is healthier than ever and doesn’t pick up every cold she comes in contact with. My husband has also been able to stop using his prescribed ADD medication through Charlotte’s combination of acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbal remedies.  We all highly recommend Charlotte! — Lindsey, Austin, Tx


My son  is a very active 10-year old boy.  Admittedly, he has some focus and attention issues that we are dealing with.  And, the reasons I love bringing him to Charlotte are many in number.  Charlotte is patient and gentle and truly knows how to speak to him to get him to describe what’s really bothering him.  We initially came to Charlotte to help with his allergy issues but she has helped us to help him in so many other areas as well.  She talks about the importance of a “happy gut” even as it relates to the allergy issues.  It’s really all common sense but not the way our society generally thinks and certainly not the way many of us (myself included) were raised.  She shows him some things he can do to self soothe for headaches and such.  She has also shown me some stretching and massaging that I can do to help him — and he loves to have it done!  She prescribes various chinese herbs for his particular symptoms but all the while focusing on the probiotics and enzymes needed for the happy gut.  She even taught him how to swallow the pills and capsules.  I only wish I had had Charlotte to teach my oldest son how to swallow pills — she did a much better job than me!  My son always feels significantly better after a treatment with Charlotte and it’s truly amazing to me that despite his generally hyper nature that she can get him to be calm and still for the treatment.  When I asked him why he likes going to see Ms. Charlotte for acupuncture he said,

  • “I like everything about the acupuncture – especially the needles – I really like the needles.”
  • “It relaxes me.”
  • “If my energy is up and I’m really hyper, the needles help me to relax.”

— Elizabeth, Austin, Tx


I went to see Charlotte in desperation to try to avoid foot surgery.  I had a neighbor who sung her praises. Frankly I was skeptical, but when I saw the difference in my neighbor and her husband’s overall health, I thought, “What do I have to lose?”  I had severe plantar fasciitis in my left foot; it was painful to walk.  I had been seeing a podiatrist who had already given me two cortisone shots and a brace to wear with little relief and no long term success.   He was recommending surgery.   Charlotte said she would treat me, but asked me to commit to seeing her regularly for 6 weeks.  Within only 3 weeks,  I had little or no pain. 6 weeks total healing.  Since then I have had no problems with my foot.   Charlotte did not just treat my foot,  but cared about my total health.  She recommend natural supplement to improve my overall health.  Now if any health issues come up,  I consult Charlotte.  I recommend seeing her once a month for general well being.   Several hair-size needles is nothing compared to facing a surgical knife.  — Tina, Austin, Tx
