- Excerpt from an email from a patient: I wanted to thank you for a great year and let you know how much you have helped me this year. You have made my day to day life more bearible. My pain levels have decreased so much because of you. I had my annual check-up today, and my Dr. said all my blood work looked great. My cholesterol is down and everything looks good. I give you a lot of credit for that. The herbs have helped me and just having you as my “shrink” has helped the most. Thank you for being who you are. Thank you for caring about people so much and for being okay doing what you do and not making what you deserve. Everyone I have sent to you have made the same comments to me about you. Thank you! – G.C.
- “Mary Jean is an amazing practitioner. She is confident, curious and willing to try new things. She also has a very warm and approachable personality and I felt very comfortable sharing my thoughts with her. I came to see Mary Jean because my menstrual cycle was off. I had menstrual cycles very infrequently and irregularly. A few months later, after receiving acupuncture and herbal treatments from Mary Jean, my menstrual cycle became regular in its frequency; it came every other month. I am very happy with the results.” – L.M.
- Excerpts from a letter from a patient:
“I wanted to thank you for all the help you have given me over the last few months. When I first came to you it was regarding jaw pain and I had not had acupuncture before and did not even know if I believed it would work.
I had already seen my primary care physician twice, my dentist twice, an ENT and had a botox shot in my jaw to kill the nerves to try and relieve the pain, while new nerves grew out. My final visit to my dentist left me with his only option (as he told me that he could not find any organic reason why I had the pain since my jaw was in line, had no infection and the x-rays showed nothing wrong) which was pain management. This meant stronger pain killers and muscle relaxers, which I had already been taking and not getting any relief. I did not want to go there.When I was at my primary care physician’s office one of the nurses suggested acupuncture and I thought at that point anything was better than more drugs. I made an appointment and was fortunate enough to have you see me. By the end of the first session I was feeling better and went home and was actually able to eat and chew with minimal pain for the first time in about three days, and by the next morning the pain was virtually gone….You are fantastic and have brought so much relief to my life, I cannot thank you enough and look forward to working with you for many years. It is funny how now I just think acupuncture is a part of maintaining a healthy body and mind. I cannot thank you enough for all your help.” – G.F.
- “I was in my 13th week of training for a marathon and pulled my IT band. It really bothered me and I thought I would have to stop my training. Then I had an acupuncture treatment done on my left side IT band. The next morning when I woke up and went for a run it miraculously felt much better. I was able to finish my training for the marathon and I ran my first marathon with no pain… Thank you Mary Jean.” – K.M.
