I have been told by doctors over the years that I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Since coming to Tom, I have seen a significant change. I wasn't taking medications for the anxiety prior to acupuncture and was looking for an alternative more homeopathic solution to avoid taking medication. The anxiety (ruminating and obsessing) was getting in the way of my relationships. Since the time I started acupuncture treatments, my anxiety has gone from a 6-7 average (scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest) to a 1-2 on average on a daily basis. I've been much calmer in situations which use to send my anxiety to the hilt. Tom was honest from the get go saying that it was important to recognize that while the anxiety may not completely go away, acupuncture could potentially help reduce it and he was right. He has had me track daily my anxiety levels and we review my progress each session.
