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. :)
