You really helped me through the darkest time of my life, your love and your humor kept me afloat. I am 100 pounds lighter in body and spirit and having an amazing summer with my granddaughter.
I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009. My lifelong goal is to continue what I enjoy best; living a healthy, active lifestyle. Clinically, from a medical perspective my prognosis is great, yet I continued to struggle with chronic pain. My symptoms of fatigue and numbness have improved significantly since seeking treatment from Elie last Summer. I’ve incorporated dietary changes by following the Paleo diet, Chinese medicine, and weekly acupuncture. Diet & herbal supplements are energy driven, while acupuncture has gradually decreased chronic pain. Most of my symptoms have completely resolved. I feel more and more energized on a daily basis, which is also very important for my job as a RN. It is quite an accomplishment, a struggle I thought I was just going to have to cope with. I want to thank Elie for helping me find a pathway that continues to be successful. Very inspiring and such a positive outlook for my future!
Elie really knows how to bring light into my life.
Thank you very much. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to no longer have that debilitating pain in my face. I wake up every day and notice that it’s gone.
Still the best thing I’ve ever done for myself!
Thank you for making such a huge impact on my life last Summer and Fall. Eternally grateful for you and your spirit!
What I love about acupuncture is that it transforms my inner experience. It doesn’t just “mask” the symptoms, it changes the need, it addresses the problem. It is done over time, but the changes are lasting.
Elie has a natural talent for acupuncture. She is attentive, sensitive, and welcomes my input. Her background in massage guides her through the layers of muscles and sinew and she has a delicate sense of the fine acupuncture points. She has great hands.
Elie is a well trained professional who exhibits a sincere compassion for the issues you are dealing with and will put you at ease in a comforting clinic environment. Give her a try.
Following a breast cancer diagnosis in 2011, I started chemotherapy treatments at a local “state of the art” cancer research facility. Early into my treatment I recognized that supportive health care is not a part of traditional cancer treatment. With my body under assault from chemo, I knew I had to do something to balance the harsh effects. I began acupuncture therapy with Elie on a regular basis. After acupuncture treatments I consistently noticed a dramatic decrease in muscle pain, nausea, fatigue, and the neurotoxicity of chemo. Elie’s clinical expertise as well as her caring and supportive ways were incredibly helpful to me.
Last night I slept better than I have in a couple of months. I appreciate so much your caring and compassionate way and am impressed with your knowledge and skill. The special, soothing touches you have made in the physical environment also added to making me have a comfortable, calming and secure experience.
We’ve been blessed by your healing hands. Thank you for all the wonderful afternoons of stress relief. You have been an inspiration.
I was diagnosed with a mild depression that I just couldn’t seem to shake. My therapist recommended that I take anti-depressants (SSRI’s) but I knew that needed to be a last resort for me. When I phoned Elie, she said that acupuncture can help alleviate depression so I made the appointment. The day after my first treatment I already could feel the gloom start to lift and I had a sense of contentment that I hadn’t had in a long time. I’ve now had several appointments and I’m so pleased to report that I am no longer depressed and that my thoughts aren’t getting stuck in that dark spiral anymore.
Thank you so much for being a source of light during a very dark moment in my life. Your service and care is deeply appreciated!
Elie’s knowledge and intuition saved my life. She served as my healer before and after surgery, guided my anti-cancer pH diet and helped me get healthy again.
I experienced several family tragedies this past year and have been dealing with emotional stress, grief, and physical pain. Elie’s ability with acupuncture, as well as her innate caring, helped me find respite and relief from pain and sorrow. Thank you Elie.
I was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease in 2014. Tried all kind of treatments. The most successful was betahystine 16mg twice daily. I moved from Chicago to Portland and last summer was bad again. I had Elie do acupuncture and that combined with my medication works great. Now I just do maintenance treatment and I am good.
My baby is born and the acupuncture was definitely the catalyst. It took about 24 hours to start active labor (after the labor-inducing acupuncture treatment), but I felt the momentum right when I left the appointment. You were amazing and really helped put me in a beautiful place.
Thanks for all the difference you have made in my life, I laughed with you when I wanted to cry and you made it all ok.
I want to tell you that my “frozen shoulder” was thawed by you and your amazing machine. It is 99% cured! It was amazing what you did and felt like you released the monster. Haven’t look back since yet realize I need to thank you!
You have taught me how to be more in touch with my spiritual self and how important it is to nurture “Laura”. I have always felt encouraged by you to be my true self and you are an incredible role model of that.
I loved how Elie helped me center myself with, not only her strength and wisdom, but with an environment that was safe and nurturing.
Coming to visit you over the last few years has had such a positive and enlivening effect on my life, I thank you. You bring joy, grace, and peace into my experience.
I read the Paleo Solution and Primal Blueprint, but hearing Elie’s presentation and having the 30 day challenge and daily email support helped me truly internalize the information and build it into my daily routine.
