Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
C.H. – Mary has been such a gift to me! I have been seeing her on a regular basis for 1 year now. My purpose for seeking her was related to infertility.
Where do I start? At our first meeting I asked her if she could help me to get pregnant. She answered that she was not sure but that she could help me restore balance and peace to my life. I had just completed another failed infertility treatment and I was not in a good place, in fact I was in a deep depression.
At the time I had no idea what Mary was doing. She was healing me from the inside out, piece by piece. In a word, Mary is a healer. She has an amazing gift to see people clearly and respond in a way that can only be described as unique/special. She is a selfless person who is very generous with her time. She is there to serve you. The benefits of the acupuncture were great. I have experienced better circulation, more regular menstrual cycles , less anxiety, and improved eye health. Mary also suggested some additional supplements that have made a big difference in my overall health. She recommended fish oil and some trace minerals as an addition to my daily routine.
Mary has been such a blessing in my life! She has taught me many lessons and has provided great feedback about the challenges in my life. Most of all, she has opened my eyes to another way of viewing this world. She provides SO much more than just acupuncture. Thank you Mary for what you do, you are truly making a difference to everyone you see, no matter the reason.
M.D. – I am a 36 year old female who has struggled with chronic abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, constipation, shaky nerves and never feeling hungry – only full for the past eight years. I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) by four gastroendocrinologist, many regular physicians and a pain specialist. I even went to the Cleveland Clinic and OSU Medical College. Through the years, I have had every test, x-ray and blood test done which only came back as normal. I had my gallbladder removed as well with not relief. Numerous prescription drugs became part of my daily routine. IBS literally took over my life both physically and mentally until I met Mary, a miracle worker. I am finally living a wonderful pain free and symptom free life. Mary has taught me a lot about how the mind and body works together. Through the use of acupuncture and her health coaching I now understand my body much better. My life is my own again.
M.W. –Acupuncture may be a science, but it is also a healing journey of body, mind and spirit.
With her knowledge and gifted touch, Mary Dinneen has given me a physical healing of severe long term health issues including crippling depression, chronic IBS, surgical adhesions, and profound grief that had completely controlled my body and life. With Mary’s ongoing guidance and treatments, it has become very empowering to feel my body heal without depending on prescription drugs. Quite simply, acupuncture has completely changed my life. Mary has not only helped me learn to listen to my body and spirit, she has given me the tools to keep them in harmony and balance.
G.J. – I’m a 46-year-old male(Columbus, Ohio), and for many years I have “muddled” along with a variety of seemingly unrelated ailments that my doctor could never quite put a finger on – reoccurring sinus/ear infections, gastro esophageal reflux (GERD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) poor sleep, and lethargy. While I found none of these aliments debilitating, I was writing them off as a natural result of aging, the result stressful job/lifestyle, or just “one of those things” out of your control. After an especially long run of antibiotics for my ears (three cycles in a month!) with no positive results, I began developing a variety of new symptoms – rashes, itchy skin, burning eyes – and I happened to mention these problems to Mary, who I began seeing some time before for back/muscle stiffness. She immediately suggested that I research a common condition called candida. Along with her support, I now understand the need for diet and supplements. As a result, I’m feeling better than I have in years! Not only did Mary’s advice clear those immediate symptoms, but my GERD has virtually disappeared, my IBS is gone, my ears and sinuses are clear, I sleep better and longer, I have more energy, and I’ve quickly and effortlessly lost weight! Mary has show me that through subtle changes in my lifestyle and with closer attention on how I live my life that dramatic and positive changes are possible – and that issues that I was conceding to age can be controlled through proper attention and maintenance. I thank Mary for her support and help – and I will continue utilize her extensive knowledge and expertise to evolve the way I look at many issues that affect my overall health.
Angel – I had been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Severe Endometriosis. I had seen three different Reproductive Endocrinologists and Infertility specialists over the past 4 years. My husband and I had tried most every medication, treatment, and surgery that Western Medicine could offer my conditions in order to get pregnant. When we hadn’t conceived, we decided to see what alternative medicine could offer us. I began seeing Mary Dinneen, somewhat skeptically. My skepticism was primarily due to the fact that I am a healthcare provider and very secure in Western Medicine. Mary melted my skepticism away, bit by bit, with every session.
Mary promptly identified my needs and developed a personalized treatment plan. She taught me how to recognize issues and care for my whole self instead of simply focusing on the physical conditions. I learned about balance and how to be calm, centered, and in tune with my mind and body. While acupuncture treatments were too powerful for me, acupressure was just perfect. Infertility had left me feeling lost and powerless, but I left each treatment session feeling calmer, centered and in control of me. My physical symptoms were lessened, and after 6 months of treatment from Mary, I felt like I could handle another round of fertility treatments. Mary guided my mind, body and spirit through this difficult journey. My husband and I conceived during that cycle. The more amazing thing is that we are expecting twins! I couldn’t have done it without Mary’s soothing wisdom, powerful touch and mindful heart.
Irene – I started doing cosmetic acupuncture about 6 months ago and was shocked at the results. I previously had botox to decrease lines in my forehead area. I found botox was expensive and the results did not last long. It only lasted about 10 weeks. Botox also releases toxins into the body which are not natural.
The acupuncture is a natural alternative to botox. It was virtually pain free. There were no stiff or paralyzed areas after undergoing an acupuncture procedure. The best part, I experience better results with acupuncture than I did with Botox. I go for maintenace visits now to maintain the results I achieved. Acupuncture stimulates collagen growth which not only gets rid of lines and wrinkles but is good for the body. I recommend acupuncture to everyone. It’s a way to erase the signs of aging, using what the body already has to offer.
T.S. – I have been seeing Mary Dinneen for acupuncture treatments since January of 2005. She has treated me for hyperacidity (heart burn); muscle aches and pain and depression. I have experienced amazing results under her care. Mary’s ability to assess and then to utilize the numerous acupuncture points to treat the presenting concern(s) is amazing. I have regularly referred people to Mary. I can personally endorse Mary Dinneen highly without reservations.
Stephanie – For over 2 years, I struggled with infertility. I was sent reproductive specialists and spent thousands of dollars taking fertility medicine. The doctors couldn’t diagnose what the cause of my infertility was but said I had a “good chance” conceiving with the fertility drugs. I didn’t want to settle for a “good chance”, I knew something better was out there so I started to research.
Through my research I learned about the positive effects of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine not only for fertility but for the whole body.
I found Mary’s website online and called her to see if she could help me. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Mary is genuine, positive and kind! She truly cares about what she does and it shows in her dedication to her work and to her patients. Mary has changed my life! She has not only helped me become pregnant (I am due April 2009) but she taught me how to live a healthier and happier life.
Words can not describe the appreciation and gratitude I have for Mary. She has helped me become a better and stronger person. She taught me to focus on the positive. She helped me let go of all the anger, sadness and bitterness that I had because of my struggle with infertility. But most of all she helped make my dream of becoming a mom and having a baby, real… she helped make it my reality and I am forever grateful.
M. & C. S. – After our consultation with Mary we knew we would be back. She was so warm and friendly. Mary promised to do everything she could to help us and we believed her. Her combination of treatments and guidance made all the difference. We struggled for years and it wasn’t long after connecting with Mary that we were blessed with twins.
Mary has our highest recommendation.
