Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mood disorders, affecting millions of adults in the US.
Migraines and chronic daily headaches had taken complete control of my life. I could not work, and even the simplest of activities had become extremely difficult. The anxiety that plagued me as a result of the stress of feeling miserable all the time became incapacitating. I had been to various doctors including a neurologist and had been prescribed a variety of prescription drugs–all of which did little to help me and had multiple undesirable side effects. Out of desperation I decided to try acupuncture. I have been Polina Bowler’s patient for two months now and the results have been very positive. My chronic daily headaches are virtually non-existent and my migraines have lessened both in intensity and frequency. Acupuncture has helped me tremendously. I am able to start participating in my life again without fear that every action will cause a migraine. Polina Bowler is both professional and sympathetic. She treats not only the specific issue but the WHOLE PERSON. Her acupuncture treatments bring the body and mind back into balance.
I have been seeing Polina for several months for various problems. She has always delivered a positive result, but the most dramatic improvement I’ve had so far occurred this past week. I had pinched a nerve in my neck and was in excruciating pain. The injury was so severe that I began to experience flu-like symptoms and depression. Out of complete desperation, I began taking muscle relaxers and vicodin but even these strong prescriptions were not helping. Finally, I got the energy to drive to Polina’s office, and a MIRACLE happened!!! Only a few minutes after the treatment began, so much tension and trapped energy released itself, and, when the session was done, I could suddenly move my neck and 75% of the pain had disappeared!!! I couldn’t believe it! I like to say that Polina performed a miracle, but I know my improvement was due to her skill and expertise. I am very fortunate to have found her treatment and would recommend her to absolutely anyone!
