before she puts her wonderful skills to work, dissolving my pain and discomfort.”

“I met Nobi in 2000.

I began seeing Nobi once a month . Over the last 11 years she has become invaluable as a practitioner and a dear friend. I am a Sjogren’s patient. So I had spent many years quite ill. However, since meeting Nobi I am here to say I have not had one serious bout! I have a very tough, physical, stressful job and I am almost 50 years old – I see Nobi every two weeks now. For the last 11 years Nobi has kept me healthy and strong by being a part of my regime. Nobi has been able to prescribe Chinese Herbs when necessary. Consequently, I live completely “drug” free. I do not take any prescription medications. That’s right, not one.  I credit my excellent health and endurance to Nobi and her amazing gift. If you want to be healthy and live strong you have to do it naturally! ”



“Nobi Pyle is an exceptionally talented acupuncturist and herbalist who is completely patient focused. One visit to her office immediately tells you that she is always focused on your health. She listens to you with respect, treats you as a competent individual, understands your pain and discomfort, then assesses your health and discusses treatment options with you.  She has combined her deep knowledge of acupuncture and herbs with her prior experience as a counselor and shiatsu practitioner to become a rarity…a health care professional that treats your health problems as they arise and simultaneously helps you develop lasting wellness.”



“I regularly receive acupuncture and herbs for tea.  What happens varies on what your issues are, but generally I go in and we talk about how I’m doing as she check my pulses. Acupuncture needles on back and wait 20 minutes (I often nap), acupuncture on front and wait 20 minutes (more napping or ipod), some Shiatsu on my joints (the neck/shoulder treatment is heavenly) and then I’m ready to go.  Herbs are adjusted, depending on my needs.”



“In addition to regular acupuncture treatment, I have used Nobi’s herbal teas, oils, salves and supplements for years for many conditions with great results and no side effects. Surgery was recommended for my right knee a few years ago, but with Nobi’s treatment I have avoided surgery and have no pain or restrictions. Nobi has recommended supplements for me that has allowed me to reduce my total cholesterol from 250 to 158 and my triglycerides from 450 to 165 without statin drugs. Overall I feel much better and more energized with Nobi’s treatments.”



“I have been seen by Nobi Pyle at Tucson Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs, LLC for the last 5 years. I have benefitted immensely from the treatments and supplements provided by her & her business. I enjoy the fact that I feel I am taking a more holistic approach to my health and wellness. I highly recommend Nobi Pyle and Tucson Acupuncture. Nobi is an amazing healer and a wonderful person!”



“I’m so thankful I met Nobi! Her knowledge and expertise introduced me to a whole new way to heal what Modern Medicine could not.”



“Nobi’s talents for asking probing questions and responding with precise treatments and herbs have kept me hiking and working these many years and I consider her a very good friend. I can definitely recommend her.”
