Patient’s Testimonial

printed with permission

“I was initially apprehensive about acupuncture because I was afraid the needles would hurt.  However, a friend strongly recommended Paul Rooney and thought he could help me with my various illnesses.  He uses Japanese style needles (flexible and very thin). They don’t hurt me and I have extremely sensitive skin.  I see numerous specialists for a wide variety of chronic illnesses.  With no disrespect to my other doctors, Paul has helped me more than all of my other doctors combined!  Rather than focusing on just one symptom or organ of the body, Paul treats the whole person.  He has treated numerous symptoms and/or illnesses of mine.  Some are physical ones like: fibromyalgia, endometriosis, neuropathy, and back pain.  Some are mental ones: like bipolar disorder (manic depression) and panic attacks/anxiety disorder.  I have found Paul’s gentle approach to be highly relaxing.  I have even fallen asleep during acupuncture sessions!  That’s just one example of how relaxing it is for me.

I have been a patient of Paul’s for over 5 years now.   In summary, I discovered that taking a chance to try something I was initially nervous about really paid off!  Once I tried acupuncture with Paul and saw how beneficial it is, I became a regular patient.  Since it has been so helpful for me, I have referred many others to Paul.  I facilitate a support group and have told my fellow support group members about Paul’s gentleness and effectiveness for a wide variety of symptoms.  I haven’t had a single person try acupuncture with Paul and come away dissatisfied.  In fact, I have had several group members try it and tell me how helpful they found it as well.  I am a very satisfied customer.  We are fortunate to have such a highly trained and skilled acupuncturist in the Rochester area.”
