I have been seeing Dr. Mims since March 2019. She is an amazingly gifted and caring person. I am a Stage IV cancer patient and have surrounded myself with a team to handle my many issues associated with cancer treatment. She is a very important member of my team. At one point, I developed a tremor which none of my physicians could address but she, with one treatment, was able to resolve the issue and get me back to enjoying my life more fully. She has also significantly improved my chemo-related peripheral neuropathy which has allowed me to return to my music therapy. In addition to her expertise in acupuncture and chinese medicine, she is a great listener and a great source of emotional support.
I would recommend her as she really cares about her patients and helping them along their healing journey. She is a great encourager, very intelligent and makes the world a better place!
Dr. Virginia Mims combines her extensive knowledge of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to create and insure a high quality of care suited to the individual patient. Since beginning weekly treatments with Dr. Mims, my pain levels have reduced from 10 to Zero, abnormal blood tests are normalized, sleep improved and overall vitality returned. Her skills are a vital component to my health and well being."

I was very nervous my first appointment because of the fear of needles and this also being kind of "out there". But it was amazing.... and the needles don't hurt even a tiny bit! She is so patient when I explain all my symptoms and I literally feel emotionally pampered the entire appointment. But the most important things is I notice an immediate improvement of my symptoms. Even my family notices the change in me each week following a treatment. My husband will even joke with me now when I start acting edgy, crazy, or reaching for sugar every 10 seconds that it might be time to see my "needles doctor" again....that, or he will ask if I'm out of my Chinese herbs. Yes, the improvement has been that huge for me." (read more)

I noticed a big difference in how I felt after my chemo treatments once I started doing the acupuncture... It helped soothe my aches, lower my stress level, and make me feel more "normal" while undergoing my treatment. She is always a joy to talk to, and I couldn't recommend her services enough. I'm very grateful to have found her!" (read more)
As I navigate through a complicated, multi-systemic condition, I deal with chronic pain and unpredictability on a daily basis... Virginia is a unique practitioner as she is very professional, yet she has a warm and nurturing approach to healing, yielding amazing results. Spending time with Virginia along the way has been a genuine source of hope for me. When you're sick, who can ask for more?"
I have been treated by other acupuncturists in the past but never experienced relief until after Virginia's treatments... Her holistic approach addressed my ailments in a much more complete way... She has my highest endorsement and appreciation!"

I have no idea how it works but the results are miraculous. All my life I have struggled with incredibly painful menstrual cycles, often missing days of work due to cramps... After my very first treatment from Virginia there were no more cramps. After a few more treatments, my flow lightened and steadied, I stopped bloating and my emotions were amazingly balanced. I don't question how it works any more. I'm just extremely grateful for Virginia and for Chinese medicine."

Virginia has been phenomenal! She is extremely thorough, caring, and I really felt her concern. Virginia's a true healer."
Virginia Mims is an amazing practitioner. She is bright, thorough, kind, warm and gentle. She listens to every aspect of what is going on for her patients. Initially I came to Virginia for general "well being" and "maintenance". She wound up treating my lower back pain, anxiety and allergies. I got married in May and I was calm and healthy in the weeks and days before the wedding. I attribute much of this to Virginia (as does my husband)."

To come see Virginia is to be truly heard and to have one's needs profoundly considered and attended to. More then just a wonderful acupuncturist and herbalist, Virginia is one of the most generous and thoughtful people I have ever met. I have received some herbal formulas from Virginia that have absolutely blown me away, so accurately have they dealt with my specific needs."
~AY, Licensed Acupuncturist
I was having terrible back pain, and steroids and physical therapy were not working, so I went to see Virginia to see if she could help. Her wonderfully caring and professional bedside manner helped me relax during the treatment, and I was pleasantly surprised by how painless the needles were. After the session, I felt a significant decrease in pain, and after several treatments the pain had completely minimized. I am so thankful to her!"
I initially started seeing Virginia to address the symptoms I was experiencing after a TIA (mini-stroke) and have been treated by her for almost a year now. My condition is now very stable and we are now addressing other issues like fatigue, and issues related to my menstrual cycle... resulting in me having greater control of my physical wellbeing and increasing my quality of life. I no longer feel that I am battling my physical challenges alone—I have a partner—we are a great team! Words are not sufficient to express my sincere gratitude to Virginia—I am happier and healthier!" (read more)
