What people are saying:
I was on the fence about acupuncture for years before finally taking the plunge after a particularly stressful time in my life. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.
Aside from being a wonderful and caring human, Pat is an incredible listener and really takes the time to get to know you and the issues you're dealing with. I was never confused about what was going on because she made sure to inform me of what each point was related to and the benefits I could expect from the sessions. After the first visit, I felt an abundant sense of ease and renewed energy. She stayed in contact between appointments and sent articles related to the conditions I was having treated. If only all medical practitioners were this thoughtful with their patients.
Pat and acupuncture are the reason my son is here. After 2 years of procedures, surgeries, 4 miscarriages and very little hope, Pat helped me get back on
track. Pat is knowledgeable, thorough and very caring. She always believed this would work out, even when I didn’t myself! This is the biggest gift I could imagine.
During a stressful time after a bout of flu-like symptoms, I woke with the right side of my face feeling numb and slack. I couldn’t hold water in my mouth and was terrified I’d had some kind of stroke. My doctor looked me over, sent me for an MRI and later gave the diagnosis of Bell’s Palsy. Unfortunately, my symptoms got progressively worse, which was especially difficult for an acting teacher and voice-over artist. At a loss, I came to you for acupuncture. You took time to listen to every possible thing I wanted to share, diagnose my condition and proceed with treatment. Incredibly, in a short time there was improvement and then complete recovery. I'm convinced the Bell’s Palsy I suffered wouldn't have gone away as quickly or at all if I hadn't come to you. Once again, thank you!
When I came to Pat for acupuncture, she asked about my sleep and I mentioned that I’d had insomnia for six years. I didn’t think that could change but after one acupuncture treatment I slept the whole night through. I’m so grateful and pleased!
I’m so glad I came to Pat for facial rejuvenation acupuncture. I’m lucky to look younger than my age but I wanted a boost as a significant birthday approached. With the first treatment there were noticeable changes in my complexion, skin color and frown lines. Soon people were saying that I was looking great and asking if I’d been on holiday or lost weight. In addition to facial benefits and feeling refreshed and smoothed out, maintenance treatments have an overall health benefit for me. It’s been more than two and a half years since my initial treatment and I’m very happy with the results. Pat has been my secret weapon.
Pat’s treatments for my migraines helped me enormously. For years I had daily migraines that caused me to lose my vision and become nauseous. Acupuncture gave me an effective
alternative to migraine medication. I still have migraines, but only a few times a year and they are much more manageable. Pat is caring, compassionate and very thorough.
Pat is a great practitioner with a true ability to listen and understand her patient’s situation. This deeper insight is what I believe allows her to treat my conditions so
successfully. Her acupuncture and bodywork treatments relieved my shoulder pain and leave me feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
I had back pain for years but Pat zeroed in on the problem area with acupuncture and bodywork, giving me incredible relief. Recently, after mentioning difficulties caused by an enlarged prostate, Pat prescribed Chinese herbs in addition to acupuncture. I’d had other treatments which hadn’t helped and I’d just about given up on the possibility of a change but once again Pat turned my condition around.
Pat treated me at the beginning of an attack of shingles and, to my surprise, one treatment almost completely eliminated the pain and red patches. With one more treatment the problem was resolved. Acupuncture will be my first line of defense for this condition from now on!
