Acupuncture Testimonial – Anxiety, Insomnia, Pain, Trauma

“No medicinal therapy has ever changed and transformed my life like acupuncture. I liken acupuncture to going through a rebirthing process physically, mentally emotionally and spiritually and feeling whole again. I had suffered from generalized anxiety and insomnia for more than 15 years. I searched what felt like eternity, seeing conventional and naturopathic doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and kinesiologists for relief and to gain an understanding of how I might improve my overall health naturally, instead of depending on prescription drugs and symptomatic treatments without a thorough diagnosis and prognosis of the root causes of my health issues by other health practitioners.


I started seeing Alaina Speraw, Licensed Acupuncturist & Constructive Life Coach in September 2010 for chronic anxiety, insomnia, nervousness, back pain, and repressed anger as a result of chronic stress and traumatic events that happened in my life. In the short span of time I had been seeing Alaina for weekly treatments, I started feeling immense relief after only the first few treatments, noticeably, from bodily dysfunctions and health issues I hadn’t been able to cure for years. I’m talking about the kinds of physical and emotional injuries that I sought doctors’ and psychologists’ opinions about, only to learn that there was no non-invasive, concrete and/or long-term solution offered to help relieve me from my chronic pain. These are the same chronic health conditions that acupuncture is peeling away each week like the layers of an onion, leaving me with more energy, calm and relaxed, deeper and undisturbed sleep, better balance in my emotions, and a greatly enhanced quality of life far more than my expectations could have ever imagined.


Before seeing Alaina, I had resigned to the fact that I would have to tolerate my ill health for the rest of my life. After seeing Alaina for treatments, my expectations and outlook on my health changed remarkably for the better and I have a manageable and practical. I respect her wisdom, experience and her wanting to truly listen.


The benefits of acupuncture cannot be fully realized without a master practitioner. Alaina is masterful in the art of healing. She is compassionate, caring, patient, nurturing, and takes her time to fully understand your problems to provide constructive advice, the proper treatments and to enable you and your body to heal on its own. What an amazing difference!


I am committed to acupuncture. Acupuncture is a way of life unto its own,and I have integrated it into my way of life. Acupuncture has marvelous benefits and warrants patience and commitment to the healing process. Acupuncture treats the root cause of ailments not just the symptoms. I would recommend Alaina Speraw for acupuncture without hesitation.”
