Terry’s Personal Journey
I discovered acupuncture as a patient. I walked the path searching for answers and help for my own symptoms. I was a desperate patient myself some time ago. After a seemingly healthy childhood, I experienced a severe downturn in college. At first, I thought it was a fierce cold that never seemed to go away. Over time, my sinus symptoms worsened and I eventually suffered respiratory problems, coughing uncontrollably for hours. Later on, I experienced stomach problems, which prevented me from eating almost anything.
The various medical doctors I consulted all told me the same thing. They diagnosed me with allergies & asthma. The allergy tests indicated I was reacting to foods. However, the doctors could not treat me for food allergies. Instead they recommended allergy shots, medication and to avoid those allergic foods. They prescribed antibiotics, steroids and inhalers. That’s all my doctors had to offer. Even with these medications, I still continued to experience asthma attacks every 4 hours. I learned quickly that medical doctors could offer no cure for my food allergies-only prescription medications for symptoms. Yet, I knew these medications were simply masking my symptoms. Frustrated, I turned to a number of alternative healers, with very little relief.
Years went by. I continued to search for answers. My frustration increased because I knew I wasn’t feeling or functioning nearly as well as I should be. I finally found a doctor who referred me to an acupuncturist specializing in Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET). The doctor said his patients were coming back testifying about their return to health based on their success with NAET treatments. I was skeptical, but I was willing to try it. Eventually I visited with a NAET practitioner and was tested for my allergies. Coming from a Western Medicine background, it was another major leap of faith. Muscle Response Testing (MRT) was used to discover my imbalances — specifically in this case to uncover allergies and sensitivities. I soon began to understand the power of this work.
After about fifteen treatments I noticed I was beginning to feel better. I continued with the NAET treatments. I knew I had found something extraordinary that few people knew about, and I wanted to use it to help others. I set out to become a licensed acupuncturist so I could help others with the same technique that helped me. Subsequently, I studied and graduated from New England School of Acupuncture with my Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2006. I have added and continue to add trainings in other bio-energetic healing systems (NAET, NET, TBM, SIPS) in order to be able to address health concerns in a more complete way.
All the work that I do here uses the body’s inherent power to heal itself. I am the facilitator to your self-healing processes; you just need a little help getting rid of the confusion you’re your body picked up along the way. Virtually anyone can be helped with a wide range of ills. Please be aware that nothing we do here requires anyone under a doctor’s care to change anything at the outset. I can treat you while you maintain your regimen of medications, if applicable, until a time when you should be able to consider appropriate changes, with the consultation of your physician.
I treat many children, and young and older adults. My patients range from a few months old to 95 years old. All can benefit, and so many do. Please take the time to read some of the information within this website and the links to other websites that I have provided. If you require more information, please call the clinic, or send questions via e-mail. It would be my pleasure to help you find your way to health, safely and naturally.
