My life with sickle cell, by Antoinette

I was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia as a child. Since then I've been going to the doctors, taking medication, suffering from joint pains. As I got older the pain increased. I also started to feel more tired and began going in and out of the hospital. Every three months my hemoglobin would drop within the normal limits.

One day in March of 2004 after being in the hospital for a week one of the regular patients at the eye clinic where I work recommended me to have acupuncture, she gave the phone number of the Acupuncture Center for Wellness.

In my first consultation I was introduced to the Five Element Acupuncture. I went twice a week for my treatment which made me feel relaxed, more energetic, more alive and less pain. It was almost as if I were a new person.

After a year I couldn't be happier with the results and their care. I am now able to travel back home to the Bahamas and most of all I have peace of mind having such quality of life. I continue on the maintenance acupuncture program and have not returned to the hospital in all this years.

Three years ago I was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, derived from the thymus gland. After several medical studies, doctors told me to undergo surgery. I underwent two chemotherapy sessions in order to reduce my tumor as much as possible. July 30th 2002 I had surgery. The cancer had taken the left vocal cord which couldn't function; so I lost my voice. I went to voice therapy, but I got very little results. My doctor suggested alternative medicine and I met one of the doctors at the Acupuncture Center for Wellness. Acupuncture changed my life and now I have recuperated my voice totally. That's why I want to say thank you to all the people at the center. I recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine for all. With it you get great results and are able to see the progress you are making.

Hi, my name is Peter

When I first came here, I could hardly walk. I was in constant pain and I felt suicidal and miserable. I started getting acupuncture treatments twice a week for 2 or 3 months and today I feel great. I have no pain, I'm in good spirits and I only need to come once a month for treatment in order to keep feeling wonderful. I believe acupuncture is one of the best discoveries of all times.

My life has turned around in the most positive way through acupuncture. I have done acupuncture before but never with these results! I came in desperate for relief from hormonal changes. I was experiencing symptoms that were affecting the quality of my life. Within the first two months of intensive treatment I felt better, I started to feel like the way I really am! The treatments always make me feel healthy, calm and grounded. The Five Element Acupuncture was new to me. Prior I had done acupuncture with herbs as well, so I am truly amazed at the results just by receiving treatment without herbs, I am virtually symptom free now, and only come for monthly maintenance. Thank you for your healing hand and energy! I am forever grateful!
