Cervical radiculopathy with numbness

I am pleased to be writing this testimonial regarding my care and treatment by Rosemary Tracy, Lic. Ac., MAOM. I have been a client since October 2016 and through May 2017. I sought treatment for an old injury which lead to cervical radiculopathy with numbness and tingling radiating down my entire right arm, resulting in some carpal tunnel symptoms as well. I also wanted help with my acid reflux, specifically weaning myself off Nexium and substituting herbs, dietary changes and a less toxic medication.

From the very first session, I was impressed with Rose’s knowledge, expertise in acupuncture, cupping and moxibustion. She was a good listener, possessed good questioning techniques to elicit a “diagnosis”, and has a thorough knowledge of herbs and herbal formulas. She clearly explained my diagnosis, her plan and treatment options and created a relaxing, meditative environment for treatment, one which promoted qi. Her explanations of Chinese medicine/philosophy, her reasons for doing certain treatments or placing needles in certain locations(meridians) was complete and easy to understand. In keeping with the Chinese tradition, Rose treated me as a whole person—not a constellation of symptoms. She was never rushed, her diagnosis was never static, but rather an ongoing process of analysis of symptoms, signs and characteristics. She referred me to certain resources (books) to further my own knowledge on diet, yin-yang nutritional information, Chinese medicine, herbs, etc.

I highly recommend Rosemary Tracy.
