"Whatever Lee does, she does with her heart open, with honesty and kindness, and always puts all her energy into it. Before I really got to know Lee, I was always amazed by her presence in a room. She is a wild spiritual woman as well as a classy lady with a bit of sass and a great taste for fashion. I'm honored and pleased to call her a Friend." ~ Petra
I first saw Lee Sheng Sun more that a decade ago. I became aware of her cosmetic treatment through a friend and thought it could be a way of dealing with sagging facial muscles triggered by asthma medication. It was! The effect of using small acupuncture needles on my face to stimulate collagen production was immediate. This was followed by placing a soothing ointment on my face. I looked and felt relaxed and refreshed. According to a friend that I saw shortly after a recent appointment, I looked revitalized and rejuvenated (bearing in mind that I am 73). He could not believe the effect of the treatment.
Over the years, I have been treated by Lee for other medical concerns that I had. I have experienced her treatments using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. I was never disappointed, except possibly for the taste of some of the herbal broths that she recommended.
On a personal level, Lee is very empathetic and caring. She is a natural healer who has an ability to identify the cause of health problems and correct them. I recommend her highly. 5 stars out of five. ~ Griffith
I have been coming to Maria Lee Sheng Sun for more than 20 years. She is by far the most talented shiatsu and acupuncturist I have ever been to. She always personalizes her treatment based on what I need, and there is no one-size-fits-all method to her treatments. She is like a “body whisperer” who is extremely attuned to what parts need to be worked on or adjusted, and she utilizes her wide range of skills to make sure I always leave the treatment feeling better than when I came in. I highly recommend her services! ~ Jessica
