“I had a frozen shoulder for roughly a year. For those of you not familiar with this it is one of the most painful conditions that a person can endure. The pain is insidious and ceaseless – especially at night. I can honestly say that it was truly debilitating. Simple daily living skills such as pulling up my own pants were beyond me and at 47yrs old that’s no way to live. Non-stop pain legitimately drained me of all enthusiasm for anything. It was all I could do to make it through each 24hrs.
I read somewhere that frozen shoulder pain could be relieved through acupuncture, so even though I’m a GIANT needle phobe I was desperate enough to give it a try. The first practitioner I tried was out by where I work and yes I found relief BUT they were very aggressive, so the treatment was uncomfortable and very expensive! However, because there was some relief, I decided to give acupuncture another try. This time through One World Acupuncture and I’m so glad that I did!
Tess Bois is absolutely amazing! Her knowledge and skill is nothing short of fantastic. She is a master of her craft! Treatments from her were not only highly effective but comfortable and relaxing. Her demeanor and people skills are exemplary (she should give classes on this to other healthcare professionals). It may sound like I’m exaggerating but you can ask anyone who has been to Tess, every word is the truth.
Since my own experience went so well I have recommended Tess to family and friends and all have had similar positive experiences, including an aunt of mine who has been battling liver and lung cancer for years. I am and will always be extremely grateful to Tess for the relief that she has provided to myself and so many others.”
“About six months ago I was at wits end. I felt such despair and depression. I had no choice but to check myself into an alcohol rehab program (for the third time). When I got out my body was in so much pain I didn’t want to get out of bed. It had been suggested to me to try. I had no idea what acupuncture was all about or how it could me. I called One World Acupuncture and talked to Tess.
We set up an appointment for the following week that I had attended. I was skeptical while walking into this appointment, I had the perception of my own ideas as to what acupuncture was. Tess and her office staff welcomed me in. I was seated and told to relax. After a briefly talking to Tess she started treatment. It wasn’t very long when I felt this was right for me.
Although my body isn’t hurting too much anymore I still go to see Tess once a week. Sometimes I will go just to relieve everyday stress. As I said I had gone to rehab three times, this time something is working. I credit a lot of my success to Tess and her treatments. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tess and her staff. I am much happier now and starting my sober life. Plus I just enjoy going. As a text message I would send “smile face, smile face smile face.”
“I started acupuncture treatments with Tess in May of 2014. I initially came for depression, anxiety and a painful knee. I have much improvement in all areas. I realized I came for pain relief and I stayed for the deep relaxation I receive from the treatments.
The environment at One World Community Acupuncture is nurturing, healing and relaxing. Tess truly cares about all her clients and you can see that in the way she interacts each and every one of them.”
“I am very happy with my treatments at O.W.C.A., I cannot express enough how glad I am that I started going there. It’s the only pain relief that I have gotten in the past year, after going to several different doctors, physical therapy, ESWT treatments, none of which worked. The only thing that has worked for me is acupuncture. I was misdiagnosed by doctors, but Tess correctly diagnosed my problem, and she has been the only one that has given me pain relief.
Tess is such a sweetheart, she is so kind and caring as well as the receptionists. Everyone is so attentive, they make you feel so comfortable. The place is super clean and pretty, and the atmosphere very relaxing, I just love going there, I look forward to it every week. So thankful for this place!”
“I began seeing Tess Bois September, 2014 for a number of skin, lung and stress conditions. I was initially hesitant, having never participated in a group setting. I was made immediately comfortable by the warm, fun and compassionate staff. I met Tess and after my initial treatment, I knew I was in the hands of a loving, knowledgeable, expert healer. Since my firt visit, I have seen Tess for shingles, colds, anxiety and weight loss. She has provided treatment with acupuncture and given referrals other health care and meditation centers along…with a really great joke with I needed it. I highly recommend Tess and her clinic. She is affordable, available, passionate, extremely competent and I feel secure knowing that I have this awesome amazing professional I can rely on in my health care team. She and her staff go above and beyond to provide …my conditions have all resolved…”
“Tess was recommended to me by a friend of my daughter. Having suffered with fibromyalgia for over 30 years. This involved chronic muscle, nerve pain and cognitive issues. Now I can say I no longer have these issues. Acupuncture gave me back my life, and at age 71 I need all the help I can get to stay healthy and active. For those of you having trouble deciding whether to try this fabulous modality, do it. Tess…is a treasure.”
“Acupuncture has been a lifesaving experience for me. I am happy with my services. My entire inner and outer self, changed for the better. I could not have healed so quickly. Even now I can walk barefoot without shame. I shine on the inside out. My experience is everyone should try this. Tess is a wonder…great listener. Pleasant environment.”
