I wanted to share my story with you about Abundant Heaven, TCM and especially Jessica Giese-Gardner, L.Ac. I started seeing Jessica 9 months ago for chronic insomnia, a lifelong battle with un-explained rapid heart rate (tachycardia) and various other issues, mostly stemming from perimenopause and menopause, including anxiety and stress.

When I first started seeing Jessica I was sleeping at most, five hours a night; sleeping a few hours, waking up in the middle of the night for 2-3 hours then falling back asleep for another hour or two. I have also been on medication for over 25 years for unexplained tachycardia, with no specific diagnosis or medical explanation.

Jessica, after a very thorough assessment, began treating my symptoms with acupuncture, cranio-sacral therapy, herbs, and dietary changes. Today I am now able to sleep 7-8 hours a night without waking, my heart rate has lowered enough to reduce my medication and can even stop my medication for days at a time. My overall ability to handle stress and anxiety has improved immensely. As a side note, Jessica has healed a 6 month-old severe ankle sprain and was able to reduce a cold/flu to two days that most everyone else was taking 12-14 days to recovery from.

Today I am a happy, healthy 55 year-old woman who is so grateful to Jessica and Abundant Heaven. Their kind, loving, healing, holistic approach helps me live my best life. I believe there is nothing that Jessica and the other practitioners at Abundant Heaven cannot treat with their amazing, individualistic approach to overall health and well-being.

I had the great privilege of receiving an incredible acupuncture and energy work treatment from Jessica at a beautiful meditation retreat. I was amazed at how powerful her energy work was at moving through some blockages I was experiencing around my digestion and kidney function. She also gave me some really effective herbs to helps with menstrual cramps and bloating. Jessica is a deeply intuitive and loving healer and really helped me improve the energy flow in my body and increased my overall feeling of vitality and balance. I highly recommend Jessica as she is a powerful practitioner.

I've has several sessions with Jessica at Abundant Heaven. Always on the go, I was not one to slow down and relax and never really cared for massages. Using Tuina and Cranialsacral Therapy, she helped me to reached a deep level of relaxation that I had not experienced before. I became more aware of my movements and more conscious of how to move in more healthful ways. Jessica has a calming nature, listens to you and explains what she is doing.
I highly recommend Jessica!

Jessica is a very talented practitioner. She's both very tapped in energetically and pragmatic, highly intuitive and also down to earth. Jessica helped me with a really difficult, splitting headache (which went away soon after she did craniosacral work with me) and a damaged stomach lining, which she magically healed with just couple doses of a custom herbal formula by their company, Abundant Heaven. I'm looking forward to doing more work with her and highly recommend her services!

Jessica has been an incredible blessing in my life.

I have a disorder that makes my nervous system do some pretty wacky things. My symptoms include cardiac disturbances, digestive issues, sleep disruption, headaches, and muscle/joint pain. These things tend to put a damper on enjoying everything life has to offer.
We started looking for answers and solutions when I was a child. (I am 38 now.) Unfortunately, within the boundaries of Western Medicine, none have been found. Their attempts at a resolution through prescriptions, lifestyle modifications, and physical therapy frequently leave me with side effects worse than my existing condition. What to do?

Enter acupuncture and Jessica.
Since I have been seeing Jessica, all of my symptoms have lessened considerably, except for the ones that are simply gone. I do not miss the migraines, the time spent wandering around in the middle of the night unable to sleep, or the fireworks that would go off in my chest. I am grateful that I have been given such relief. I am grateful at how much more living I can do now that I have been given relief. I have no doubts that acupuncture, and the other therapies I have received from Jessica, not only works, but is the main reason for this turn around.

I am afraid of needles. To the degree that I must be swept away to a back room to have blood drawn in clinics so that the brave boys and girls don't see me being a scaredy cat. The acupuncture needles are teeny tiny, and any sensations I have are brief. Jessica is excellent at reading my responses and checking in to ensure that I am comfortable.
And I am very comfortable while I am there. Jessica was thorough with my medical history during the intake process, and continues to ask a variety of related questions at the beginning of each session. Sometimes the things that we discuss would make me uncomfortable or embarrassed in other situations with other doctors, but her attitude towards my well being and her compassionate personality never make me feel awkward.

Since I have gotten such wonderful results, my boyfriend decided to make an appointment with Jessica for his chronic lower back problems. He had tried other avenues, but continued to have frequent weakness and pain. In the roughly three months since his only appointment, he has been free from both!

In case you can't tell, I'm a huge fan. I believe in results and people that genuinely care. I have found both with Jessica. She is a warm, friendly person with incredible skill and knowledge. :)

I am a 65 year old female who has suffered from severe osteoarthrits for years. Medication worked minimally and I also had numerous epidural injections in the cervical spine, again with minimal relief. My next option seemed to be surgery which I am very reluctant to pursue. I started seeing Jessica for accupuncture and massage therapy in May of 2013 and after just 3 treatments I noticed an amazing reduction in the amount of pain I had suffered. Literally, I am pain free from the pinched nerve in my neck and the inflammation in my hands has decreased dramatically.

Jessica is so professional, compassionate and knowledgable in her field. The office is immaculate and cozy. Insurance issues are dealt with efficiently and fees are explained thoroughly.

Overall, the treatments have been an amazing experience and I would highly recommend Jessica and Abundant Heaven. I have referred several people for therapy and they too are very satisfied.
