Nine months ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. During the course of treatment with chemotherapy I developed neuropathy in my hands and feet. As an artist who relies on her hands to create it was extremely difficult to continue my work without the feeling in my fingers, also, walking became hazardous as I fell several times because of the numbness in my feet. I decided to try acupuncture to see if it would help me.
Mara is wonderful at explaining how acupuncture works, she has a heart of gold and is very supportive and extremely caring. After only 2 treatments I noticed a slight change in the numbness in my fingers and after more therapy the numbness is continuing to abate. I now have full feeling in 6 of my fingers and after each treatment I continue to have more feeling in the last 2 fingers and thumbs. This applies to my feet as well. I am thrilled to say that I’m now able to continue with my artistic endeavors thanks to Mara’s expertise and magic needles. She has helped me more than words can express.
