"I wish I could bottle this feeling..."
"I have suffered with ringing in my ears for many years to the point of not sleeping and feeling the frustration of the constant noise. I would rate this noise at 8/10 intensity. I tried some herbal treatments with no success and was told by my family doctor that there was no effective treatment so was useless to see a specialist.
I have recently had a lot of success with acupuncture treatments by Dr. Mandie Gillette. I had 6 weekly appointments and am now decreasing the frequency to every two to three weeks. I noticed a difference after the first two appointments in that the intensity of the ringing decreased to about 6/10.
After the 6 treatments, I noticed a very significant improvement in my symptoms. There are times now that I have to consciously listen to determine if my ears are ringing or not. My sleep habits have improved dramatically. If I wake in the night now, I am not so aware of the ringing and am able to go back to sleep. In the past, the ringing was often so severe that I couldn’t sleep because of it. I will say that the symptoms haven’t completely resolved, but the lower intensity (2-3/10) is certainly more tolerable. I expect that I will continue to have acupuncture and Reiki treatments on an on-going basis every month or so to maintain this level of comfort." - J.F.
"Dr. Gillette is amazing! I have been receiving acupuncture treatments and herbal formulas from her for almost two years. I am in a very challenging educational program, and with her help, my stress levels are manageable. I have more energy and am calmer. Since starting my regularly scheduled treatments, my migraines have been less frequent, my IBS symptoms are easier to manage, and I have lost nearly twenty pounds. Dr. Gillette is kind and compassionate. I look forward to every visit. I highly recommend her services." - M.G.
"Dr. Gillette has without a doubt been instrumental in my healing processes through her techniques and most importantly, her kindness. I have benefited from acupuncture treatments for stress, weight management, grief and general preventative maintenance! I would recommend everyone get acupuncture with Dr. Amanda Gillette, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain." - S.V.
