I am writing to express my satisfaction with the treatments I have received from Stewart Sommers at the Acupuncture Wellness Center. I believe acupuncture enables your body to do what it was designed to do. Unlike my experience with traditional medication, I have never experienced any harmful side effects from my acupuncture treatments – only tremendous benefits. For me, acupuncture is a healthy, natural alternative to medication for treating: allergies, pms/cramps, digestive problems, stress/tension, and even colds! (A single treatment opened up my sinuses and eliminated my night-time coughing) At first I thought I might not be able to afford the treatments but was thankful to learn that they offer specials. I usually fall asleep during the treatments because they are so deeply relaxing. Stewart Sommers has an excellent bedside manner and listens carefully. Obvious, rapid improvements in my conditions prove Sommers’ ability to successfully utilize his knowledge of Chinese medicine and of the human body. I would encourage anyone with any health condition to try acupuncture and allow it to become a replacement for, or at least a supplement to, their traditional medicine.
Do I know what my Chi is? Do I know how acupuncture works? No!! All I know is that acupuncture really works and my overall well being has greatly improved since I started regular treatment at The Acupuncture Wellness Center.
I was thrilled to see Acupuncture Wellness open in Goodwood Village on Jefferson Highway. For the past 10 years, I have dealt with pain throughout my body, fatigue, fuzziness (lack of clarity). I started going to see Stewart Sommers. I was familiar with acupuncture and its many benefits having lived in San Jose, CA. However, I am so glad there is a place to continue treatment here in Baton Rouge. I went to Stewart and continue to see him. I find it extremely relaxing – better than any massage I have ever had – and worth it. The health benefits and healing qualities are wonderful. I give it a 5 star rating! If you are not sure how acupuncture may benefit you, just call the center and they will provide information. I do know it helps with clarity, pain, digestion, addictions (like smoking) sciatica as well as other conditions. I recommend it!
Acupuncture has given me a new beginning in life. Over several years my body was becoming less and less cooperative as my left leg didn’t want to work. I was dragging it and fell one day crossing a street. That got me busy looking for help. I had had a total hip replacement but was extremely slow in recovering. More tests indicated spine problems. Cortisone injections helped at first but later were ineffective. A spine surgeon didn't want to touch my back! As a last ditch effort to stay out of a wheelchair, I decided to try acupuncture. At worse, it would prove to be ineffective. I found Stewart Sommers at AWC through a friend who is a retired RN. I wish I had started with acupuncture long ago. I knew it was working when I suddenly had a soft surge of a long missed sense of well-being. (progress is subtle but stunning) Since then my long-term sinus problems have been lessening, the nagging problem with my right shoulder has lessened, my balance has improved and my left leg is better, along with other symptoms I had never mentioned to Stewart. Recently others have commented on my improvements. They say I am moving so much better, reacting faster, walking without a serious limp, getting up from sitting so much faster and my face glows. I can add that my hopes are up, my interests are expanding and I am making plans to travel. I don’t see myself in a wheelchair. I am so appreciative to Stewart for his efforts, understanding and treatment. And, I am grateful to God.
After a trip to China where I experienced acupuncture from two Traditional Chinese Medicine doctors, I decided to commit to a regular regime of acupuncture as a preventative care practice as well as a means to maintain optimal health. Increased energy, less pain and quicker recovery after sports-related workouts, and an overall sense of happiness and well-being is what I felt after these acupuncture treatments. This change convinced me to find a qualified acupuncture specialist in Baton Rouge. Luckily, I had to look no further than the Acupuncture Wellness Center. Stewart and Dr. Marshall Sommers have a state-of-the-art facility which is spotless and inviting. After a year of regular treatment, I’ve never felt better. Many thanks Stewart and Marshall.
