I have been very pleased with the acupuncture sessions I've had with Stewart Sommers, for the treatment of pre-menopause symptoms (mainly hot flashes, night sweats, headaches, and mood swings). The hot flashes were very frequent and intense, and really interfering with my daily activities. I was also not able to sleep well, so I was always very tired. The day after the first treatment it seemed that the hot flashes got worse, but the following days they went to just a few times a day and very mild. I was surprised to see that the night sweats were gone after the first session and I was able to sleep much better. I noticed that my headaches were also gone. My mood improved and I had so much more energy. I was about to start hormone replacement therapy before those session and I'm glad I didn't and gave acupuncture a try! I'm also very grateful to Stewart and Dr. Marshall Sommers for their gentle approach and the welcoming environment they offer at the Acupuncture Wellness Center.
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.
