I had always been an anxious person - even as a child. I did relatively well coping with this anxiety, but after menopause, the intensity of it greatly magnified. This was coupled with an inability to sleep through the night. I began to fear that I was on a downward spiral and tried many things to alleviate the problem but only received superficial relief. I began weekly acupuncture sessions approximately 2 months ago and am amazed at my improvement! My anxiety is almost 100% resolved. The quality of my sleep has greatly improved as well. This change in my disposition has helped me in all aspects of my life. I am able to handle the challenges of my business with much more calmness and clarity. It has also helped me in my interpersonal relationships. Although anxiety was my main reason for seeking acupuncture, I have received relief from other nagging physical symptoms as well. I can honestly say that acupuncture has changed my life! I so appreciate Stewart's calm and kind demeanor. He clearly has a strong desire to help his clients. I look forward to my sessions in his beautiful office and always leave relaxed and rejuvenated.
I am writing to express my satisfaction with the treatments I have received from Stewart Sommers at the Acupuncture Wellness Center. I believe acupuncture enables your body to do what it was designed to do. Unlike my experience with traditional medication, I have never experienced any harmful side effects from my acupuncture treatments – only tremendous benefits. For me, acupuncture is a healthy, natural alternative to medication for treating: allergies, pms/cramps, digestive problems, stress/tension, and even colds! (A single treatment opened up my sinuses and eliminated my night-time coughing) At first I thought I might not be able to afford the treatments but was thankful to learn that they offer specials. I usually fall asleep during the treatments because they are so deeply relaxing. Stewart Sommers has an excellent bedside manner and listens carefully. Obvious, rapid improvements in my conditions prove Sommers’ ability to successfully utilize his knowledge of Chinese medicine and of the human body. I would encourage anyone with any health condition to try acupuncture and allow it to become a replacement for, or at least a supplement to, their traditional medicine.
2 years ago, I was diagnosed with adrenal failure due to severe stress. I tried several methods of treatment to recover the adrenal functions. I received treatment from a traditional GP, an endocrine specialist, and a integrative medicine doctor, but my adrenal glands still continued to fail. Before giving up, I decided to try Stewart Sommers who came highly recommended from my integrative medicine doctor. After only 2 acupuncture treatments, I noticed a remarkable change in my anxiety level, nervousness, and tension. After completing 6 treatments, my adrenal glands have been reset and continue to heal, which also has helped other parts of my body to heal. With such great results, I continue to see Stewart for other health issues as I have become a firm believer in acupuncture and in the synergistic effect acupuncture offers with any other medical treatment.
