"Diego Leong-Roig has been my Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist for the last 5 years. From day one, he has shown that he 'knows his stuff' and has given me invaluable advice, acupuncture and massage therapy.


The treatment he has performed on me has allowed me to be comfortable for many days (and up to two weeks) after treatment. I have extensive degenerative disk and joint disease, arthritis and nerve damage and with his treatment plan for me, he has kept me coming back every 2-3 weeks.


Without Diego's help, I would am able to continue working in the office full time and also as a successful REALTOR-ASSOCIATE® with Century 21 Liberty Homes.


Bottom line, Diego Leong-Roig treats both me and my husband and we will continue on with him as long as he is in practice!"

"For many years, my mom and I go to Diego Roig at Leeward Acupuncture for our maintenance of health and wellness. Diego is extremely knowledgeable in massage, acupuncture, Chinese herbs, etc. Overall, an exceptional experience and we always refer and recommend others to Diego."

"Aloha, my name is Shane and I'd like to say that my experience with Diego's treatments has been nothing but stellar !! I first met Diego over 12 years ago due to a knee injury. A good friend had nothing but good things to say about him. I've had acupuncture before but never for an injury. After my first session with Diego I was back on the field and 100%. I swore I'd go to him for help before a physician (less I needed antibiotics). His skills surpass any health treatments I've had in the past.

I continue to see Diego when my schedule allows simply for maintenance and to keep a natural flow of positive energy effect physically. I highly recommend anyone who's considering seeking attention for a healthy mind and body should make an appointment with Diego's office."

"I have been going to Diego for over 6 years -- He is an excellent massage therapist and acupuncturist.  He will tailor his treatment according to your needs and concerns.  He has helped me countless times when my "Tennis Elbow " (Lateral Epicondylitis) flares up.  Very professional, calming personality and great integrity.

Intermittently, for 15 years, my aging body and accompanying "life script" has lead me back time and again to seek remedy from Diego Roig. From an old shoulder injury, sore muscles or tightness from martial arts, and random aches and pains, I have always left treatments feeling better, with hope, and sometimes with a new recipe tip.


Beyond receiving excellent treatment in a variety of modalities, I believe that a measure of healing in my case, is due to Diego's positive regard and aloha. It's simply who he is-an outstanding human being.


Over 15 years my aging process seems to correlate positively with his knowledge and mastery as a practitioner.  In addition to being an intuitive listener and kind soul, Diego is well-read, versed in conventional and Eastern medicine and able to practice eclectically. His advice for healthy living is well taken as he "walks the talk."  From the moment you enter his office-which is kindly uncluttered with the typical hype-it will be apparent that the focus is all about you and your wellness. Holomua!"



"My name is Billy Rice and I have been coming to Diego Roig for acupuncture and massage treatments since May of 2005. In January of 2003 I was struck by a car while riding my bike, I walked away from the accident with minor scrapes but soon after I began going through bouts of severe dizziness, nausea and vomiting which would disable my ability to eat and lead to dehydration which would then result in ER visits and hospitalization. After being passed from doctor to doctor for a period of 2 years, and running a gauntlet of procedures and medications which yielded little to no results I was given the answer of going home and preparing for my inevitable demise. I was simply outside the box of "western medicine". When I first began going through these episodes I would often get relief through Lomi Lomi massage, after which I would be able to eat again and regain some normalcy of life. On the advice of the Lomi practitioner I was told to try acupuncture, and given Diego's number. The acupuncture and massage treatments have helped me eliminate my hospital visits and greatly reduced my symptoms better than any medications I was given. His passion for health and always positive attitude have helped me through more hard times than I can count, and I am thankful to have an ally like him in life. Aloha Diego! "

"I have been coming to Leeward Acupuncture and massage for the past year and it has made a difference in my life. I look forward to my treatments once a month for relief in both my knees, stiffness in my shoulders and lower back and numbness in my hands. Every time I come, the treatment is different in terms of the area of focus, but I always walk out of here more limber and pain free. I recommend anybody with pain, numbness, and/or stiffness to seek treatment from Diego. He truly cares about bringing relief to your problem area through, accupuncture, massage and even cupping."


When I found out I had rheumatoid arthritis in my neck I was in the process of moving to Oahu.   (that wasn’t the only thing wrong with me though…) When I found another doctor his treatment for the arthritis was physical therapy, surgery or medication for pain; medication that could produce serious side-effects to include heart attack and stroke!  I certainly did not want surgery and physical therapy seemed useless and ineffective.  But because the pain was interfering with my driving and work, I knew I needed some help. Yet I didn’t want to become one of those people with a nightstand full of medicines to take daily so I got proactive about it.


I had been curious about acupuncture for some time so I talked to my doctor about it.  He said there were not enough studies to prove its effectiveness one way or the other so he could neither recommend nor caution against it.  He then referred me to one of his nurses who knew of a good acupuncturist on Oahu – Mr. Diego Roig.  That was a year ago and I have been seeing him every month since for acupuncture, deep tissue massage and cupping!


Mr. Diego has caused my arthritis pain to literally disappear.  Almost from the beginning, I stopped taking the medication for pain as the pain was now manageable with regular treatment from Mr. Diego.  He does not do the same treatment at each appointment but asks what is bothering me and focuses on that with usually deep tissue massage and either acupuncture or cupping or sometimes all of it!  I have a sedentary job, working on the computer almost all day and that causes various aches and pains here and there.  But he knows just how to target those aches and pains and what treatment is best.  There have actually been a couple of consecutive months I have gone in and when he asks what is bothering me, I have no answer because nothing is hurting!  Amazing!


He talks with me and he is so kind it’s easy to open up and be honest so without really intending to I have shared other physical discomforts with him and he treats those too: hot flashes, headaches, slow metabolism and circulation.  And all for no additional cost!  On the mainland I was going to the doctor almost every month for something.  Now, I haven’t needed my primary doctor in over 6 months and then it was to diagnosis something that Mr. Diego would then treat for me, without pharmaceutical medications.


I could not be more happy with the serene little office he occupies, the calming music he plays and the on point comments he makes to me which feed my spirit.  Now I look forward to the community acupuncture where I can go in more than once a month and heal my body while feeding my soul.  


I am so thrilled with finding Mr. Diego.  I can’t foresee any reason to stop coming to see him, for the rest of my life.  And my husband noticed a difference in me and now he has treatments too!  I highly recommend Mr. Diego Roig for acupuncture healing!

I am a Dental Hygienist and have been for over 30 years. I started acupuncture treatments with Diego for about 2 years now.  He has been successfully treating me for carpal tunnel and sciatic nerve pain. Diego's techniques are quite painless and he is always so caring and accommodating!
