If you are looking for a great acupuncturist then your search is over. Anna works wonders and she is amazing. I have been seeing her for over three years (sorry this took so long to post, Anna!) and her treatments have changed my life. I suffered for years from insomnia and tried everything under the sun with no real long term results. Even prescription sleeping pills like Ambien and Lunesta would only get me about a four hours of fitful sleep. Without drugs I typically would not sleep more than two hours without waking up and then I'd be up for hours. Most nights I would be lucky to get four hours of sleep and never all in row unless I took prescription pills or drank a lot of alcohol. And my sleep was very fitful and not at all restful. But I had learned to function over the 15 or so years that I had been dealing with insomnia.
Anna told me that insomnia is a tough issue to tackle and even Western medicine doesn't really know a lot about its causes. She asked me what my definition of success with her treatments would be and together we agreed that if I could sleep for four hours straight that would be a big improvement. Since I could only come once a week, Anna mapped out the number of treatments she thought it would take to get me to four uninterrupted hours of sleep at night. She told me that if she couldn't get me there with that number of treatments that she wouldn't continue to take my money because she didn't think she could help me. That was refreshing to hear as so many people would just continue to go through the motions and cash the checks.
Sure enough, after a couple of months I had my first night of sleep that lasted for four hours straight. It was a huge step for me. Anna continued to work to adjust my treatments and over time I was sleeping 5 and even 6 hours a night. Now I regularly sleep 6 hours a night and I've had several nights where I've slept 7, 8, and even 9 hours without interruption. I rarely take any medication anymore and overall my sleep is deeper and more restful. This has improved my overall health and life in so many ways as lack of sleep literally affects your entire physical, mental, and emotional health. I can't say enough about Anna and her methods and what they have done for me.
So stop reading reviews and go make an appointment! You will find Anna to be the most friendly, straight forward, down to earth person you've probably ever met. The environment of her clinic is peaceful, calming, and welcoming. She will treat you with compassion, respect, and with gentle care. You can't get any better than that. Whatever your health issue is, do yourself a favor and go see Anna - you won't regret it!
