I've known Mike Boyer for over 20 years now, first as a student in acupuncture school, and later as a fellow practitioner. Over the years I've had many mentors, and am fortunate to have a successful practice in Northern California, and when fellow up-and-coming practitioners ask me where I get my inspiration to practice, Mike's name is the one I give out. I also have many patients who have homes in the Palm Springs area, and I send them to Mike when they are down there. Further, I occasionally intern with him myself, even after 20 years in practice, to find out what he's been up to and how I can improve my own practice. He is the practitioner that practitioners go to, and I feel honored to get to learn from him.
Beyond his obvious skills as a practitioner, he is also just a great guy. As a practitioner myself, I know that a large part of the healing process has to do with the rapport between doctor and patient, and it is in this area that Mike especially excels. Regardless of your background or medical condition, I'm confident that he can help pretty much anybody, whether he does it himself or, failing that, finds the right person to refer you to. The only thing I don't like about Mike is how far away he is! While I'm willing to drive a day at a half in order to learn from him, I only wish that he was closer to the Bay Area.
Dr. Boyer, Thank you so much for all your help with making me healthy again and bringing our baby into the world. Without your help I may have never been able to get pregnant.

I woke up one day with one side of my face paralyzed. I thought I was having a stroke. My doctor diagnosed Bell's Palsy. He said it could take months to heal and that my face may never completely recover. A friend referred me to Michael Boyer. In one week my face was almost completely normal, in two weeks it was like nothing ever happened. Since then he has helped me with my allergies and many other ailments. Thank you Michael Boyer!

I have always been interested in acupuncture, but until I met Michael Boyer, I had never tried it. Over the past year and a half, I have come to him with a severely sprained ankle, a problem with my knee, a sharp shooting pain in my wrist, and a really sore shoulder... and he has successfully treated all of them. People ask me if acupuncture really works, and I say "It sure has for me... go see Mike." I love going - and not just for the healing benefits. I feel so good at the end of the session, so relaxed and yet energized, sometimes I just go in for a "tune-up" :)

After 20+ years with vertigo (at times severe) and pursuing Western medical avenues, I decided to try acupuncture at the Palm Springs Acupuncture Center. My objective was to reduce or eliminate my vertigo episodes. Weekly treatments and Chinese herbs made a significant improvement on the episodes. Most of the vertigo disappeared and when I had episodes, they were less frequent and for a shorter duration. When I had a vertigo episode, the acupuncture treatment almost always calmed it down. Reducing my vertigo has made a dramatic impact on the quality of my life. Words cannot express my gratitude to Michael for relieving my vertigo. He is knowledgeable and professional, his staff is friendly and accommodating and I highly recommend him.

Michael, It's been about year since my first visit to your office. The positive benefits from acupuncture have been profound in some ways and subtle in others. I originally came in seeking help managing high blood pressure. Acupuncture combined with weight management, exercise and medication prescribed by my MD. are definitely helping lower my bp. As an additional benefit, I experienced outstanding results when you treated my dreaded hemorrhoids. They were a chronic pain in the butt for the past 20 years. I am delighted to report that they are no longer an issue for me. After a series of acupuncture treatments my discomfort has been eradicated! I want to say thanks for all your help.

I first saw Dr. Boyer when my chronic back pain got so bad I could not get comfortable in any position. I didn't really know what he meant when he diagnosed "Kidney Chi deficiency", but my back got better so I didn't care. Now it only hurts once in a while, so I just go in for one or two treatments and the pain is gone. The really amazing thing is after about 5 visits, my Asthma disappeared, and I never even told him about it. Amazing!

Dr. Boyer, thank you for getting me an appointment on such short notice for my acupuncture treatment. After 3 days my I T band and hip were completely without pain. Even after 4 days of steady driving to get back to Canada, my hip and leg are back to normal.
Michael, I am writing exactly one holiday card this year...and it's to you! I wanted to take a little time and let you know how thankful I am for the relief that your treatments have given me. I truly was beginning to think that my neck pain would be something I was going to have to "live with" for the rest of my life. Now, here I am, after just a few treatments going weeks without even thinking about my neck!!! This truly was an impossibility before I wandered into your office and I am forever grateful. And now...for the icing on the cake...I just started my (third in a row) perfect 28 day cycle - unbelievable! I hope that you will take this as a holiday reminder of all of the people you have helped over the years whom I am sure are as grateful as I am.
“Thank you Dr. Boyer for a headache free life after suffering from chronic migraines for decades. I can't believe day after day of no headaches.”
“Michael Boyer is an amazing healer. He has saved me from depression, pain, and anxiety, among many other things. My husband is Japanese and grew up with acupuncture, and he says that Michael is the best acupuncturist he has ever known. The Palm Springs Healing Center is a place where people genuinely care about the overall health and well-being of their patients.” -Kathleen
