Testimonials | Gary F.
I was recently with a group discussing the merits of massage therapy and/or acupuncture. There was a wide range of opinions, some serious disagreements and even a few comical theories. My own experience has been satisfying and rewarding and I often forget how far back I was when Juliet first started treating me about a year and a half ago.
My daughter, a successful physical therapist, sent me to Juliet for six massage sessions. I had recently retired from a happy and successful woodworking career but was in pretty bad shape both physically and mentally. My neck, shoulders and lower back were hurting terribly even though I had had some steroidal cortisone shots, and I struggled to walk or even dress myself. Because I had always been physically active and healthy prior to this, I became depressed, lost weight, had trouble sleeping and even had suicidal thoughts.
After a few of Juliet’s treatments I regained enough confidence to get serious about getting well. Both she and my physical therapist recommended water therapy and I began working out in the pool. My general physician suggested some changes in my diet. When the sessions my daughter had paid for ran out I decided I would continue seeing Juliet weekly for massage therapy. It wasn’t always easy but it was always progress.
I had been reluctant to try acupuncture; not for fear of needles but from not wanting to use my last out. When my doctor indicated it might be a good idea and several people I know told me it helped them I bit the bullet. As with massage, it was progress. Now I get a massage every other week and acupuncture the week in between.
I am totally convinced these therapies have turned my troubles around. I’m back to doing things I wasn’t able to do just a few years ago, eating and sleeping well, and enjoying my retirement even though I go into the shop to help out some.
Juliet, I truly appreciate your professionalism, your tremendous technique, your dedication and how you have helped me help myself.
