We’ve treated over 75,000 patients naturally.

I had insomnia (sleeping 3hours or less) and increased anxiety – associated with the use of Tamoxifen. I have also been treated for tendonitis of my right ankle and shoulder pain, resulting from a torn rotator cuff.

The impact of acupuncture treatment has been amazingly beneficial to me. I am sleeping 5.5 – 6.5 hours on regular basis. Anxiety has been reduced greatly. Increased left shoulder mobility with pain reduced to 2-3 (used to be 8). Ankle pain and swelling are also improving.

Treatment has been beyond my expectations!

Insomnia, tendonitis, & shoulder pain

Headaches and TMJ are what brought me to seek care with Dr. Healy. I have had both symptoms for over 20 years, before, I had been to a dentist, optometrist allergist, chiropractor, and massage but nothing seemed to work.

Don’t make acupuncture your last choice as I did. My headaches are minimal if not completely gone. I will always have TMJ but now have very little pain. Going from never having relief to having very little pain is a wonderful feeling.

Headache & TMJ

I have colitis of the colon.

Gene has gotten my condition stabilized. My quality of life has improved greatly and my colon problems have stabilized with the acupuncture treatment and the herbs.

Colon Colitis

I have seen Dr. Healy for a couple of different issues and have been surprised how amazing acupuncture with him has helped me.

First, he helped me with a sprained ankle. It was painless and healed really fast. I found out that acupuncture can help with a variety of conditions, and we worked on my menstrual issues.

Acupuncture with Chinese herbal medicine did a wonderful job. I feel great and trust him with my medical needs.

Amber J.

Ankle pain & menstrual issues

I had lymphedema in my right arm due to lymph node removal during mastectomy in 2010.

The swelling has improved greatly; nearly 50%. No more arm pain or shoulder pain from arm being heavy and hard. I was skeptical about acupuncture working since I had tried manual massage and pumping machine exercise but it has truly been the only thing that has brought me Relief!

Dorothy C.

Lymphedema, & cancer

I had facial spasms and paralysis. I also had back pain due to degeneration of my spine.

My face has improved and my friends all tell me how much better my face looks. Also, my back feels better, for sure. I believe in acupuncture and Dr. Healy. I’m very satisfied with my experience at Root Healing Wellness.

Carmela G.

Facial spasms & back pain

I came to see Dr. Healy for sudden lower back pain that made it difficult to move or even sleep.

After getting acupuncture treatments, the lower back now feels pain-free and feels stronger than before.

He has a very warm and friendly practice. I would recommend Dr. Healy to friends and family.

I met Dr. Healy at a Rotary Club meeting and decided that I needed to take control of my "pre-diabetes" situation... because I didn't want to get diabetes. So, I worked with Dr. Healy for 6 weeks to detox my body. Since I have never done this type of thing in my 65 years, it was difficult at times. However, I stuck with it and had some surprising results. 1. I dropped my glucose number and my A1C number to be "out" of the "pre-diabetes" situation (which is what I hoped to do) and 2. I also lost 13 pounds of FAT and dropped 2 pants sizes. (I had NO IDEA that this would happen.) I've been on weight loss diets before and lost a lot of weight so, normally, the first 10 lbs would be "water weight" and I wouldn't lose inches. Having dropped TWO pants sizes was amazing and I've lost it mostly around my mid-section. Thank you, Dr. Healy and staff, for allowing me to take back control of my life and my health!read more

Coming to Root Wellness has been a life changer. Dr Healy and his entire staff, who are always welcoming and... accommodating, deserve an exceptional review. I have spent the last 20 years suffering from autoimmune disorders, chronic, debilitating pain and hormone imbalances. I've seen more doctors and specialists than I can count.If only I had found this incredible team of health care professionals before putting myself through rigorous treatments, medications and three spinal surgeries. I was that person who allowed my medical insurance to determine my treatments, only to discover my health continued to deteriorate.When I began to experience extreme muscle spasms and paralysis in my hands, it really frightened me. How would I function without the ability to use my hands? At this point, I was willing to try anything. I had my doubts that acupuncture or Chinese medicine would really make a difference, considering everything else I had tried but I was feeling desperate.Dr. Shylar was the first doctor I met. She impressed me with both her compassion and confidence. I always look forward to my acupuncture visits because she is gentle and kind. I leave feeling more relaxed with a dramatic decrease in pain.I was also surprised at how much my mental health had improved, probably because I felt so much better!Thanks to Dr. Shylar and a few weeks of consistency, I began to have faith that my nervous system would indeed change. I developed a new mindset, believing I could enjoy living inside this body that had been failing me.Dr. Healy is brilliant. He was thorough and attentive to address all of my health concerns. By ordering the right labs, he discovered the root causes and helped me understand why I was experiencing various symptoms.The Chinese herbs he gave me also improved all of my symptoms, including constipation, fatigue, incontinence and daily headaches. Dr Beverly was also helpful in her clear guidance through the detoxing process. She continued to educate me through the different stages in functional medicine and what to expect.It has been a blessing to have this entire team supporting me through my journey of healing. I am overjoyed to say that I am completely free from pain medications. I highly recommend all their effective treatments for an overall optimal health transformation!! I am forever grateful for the difference they have made in my quality of life!!read more

I was referred by my insurance carrier for severe pain following a lumber disc tear and am very glad that I followed... their referral. The staff is personable, knowledgeable and very friendly. The practitioner that treats me is Dr. Shyler Neveux. She is very gentle and explains the procedures clearly and completely before proceeding. I feel that she understands my pain and discomforts and truly wants me to improve. Dealing with this office is way better than most other medical offices, and they try to make you as comfortable as possible. As for the results of the treatments, I noticed a great deal of improvement after the very first treatment and continue to notice improvement after each session. Please give acupuncture at this office a try - it did wonders for my pain and I have no doubt that I will continue to improve and heal.read more

For some reason I started getting Tinnitus back in March. I went to see my doctor who had given me antibiotics to see... if that would help, as well as a referral to an ENT. The antibiotics unfortunately did nothing, so I went to the ENT. After a decent amount of testing, I was told that there was nothing that they could do as, "It was a very common problem, with no known solution". A few months after, maybe June/July my tinnitus got so bad I had many sleepless nights. I even tried a bunch of at home "solutions/remedies", from putting hydrogen peroxide in my ears to leaving the TV on at night to drown out the noise. Luckily, I mentioned this to a friend who referred me to Root. A couple weeks later, I finally called in. That same day I got an exam, as well as an initial treatment. After just 2 treatments, and with an herbal tea given to me, my tinnitus noticeably went down. After about a month or so, there were times that it went away COMPLETELY. I am still getting treatment, but the issue has significantly lessened and limited to just my left ear. I am still amazed at the results!!! Thank you so very much!!!read more

I had a wonderful experience working with the team at Root Healing and Acupuncture. I was having a strange heart... issue. Working with the team, we started with blood work and from there were able to determine a proper course of action. My blood work was all over with an excess of antibodies and inflammation. Using herbs and dietary restrictions we corrected the blood work, with weeks i was feeling significantly better and months later still feeling great. Heart issues are gone, inflammation and antibodies are down. This was a great experience and I can not thank Gene and his team enough. Aside from being healthier I've gained a good 40-60 yards on my golf swing. Absolutely incredible.read more

I really enjoyed my experience with Root Healing Wellness! For years, I have been dealing with a compromised gut and I... wasn't able to digest much plant matter at all. The Detox helped me isolate specific problem foods and really helped by stomach heal a lot - and therefore changed a lot of my energy levels and general wellness.read more

After several years of struggling with an auto immune disorder I had lost hope that I would feel better. My friends... told me about Root Healing and I decided that I would commit to the process. I did the cleanse and made a total life style change. The program and treatments changed my life. It was the first time that I felt improvement in several years. I feel so much gratitude for the help I received!read more

The results I have experienced thanks to Root Healing have been remarkable. For years I have been very disappointed... with the medical care I was receiving through Western Medicine so I decided to take the plunge and try something different. To my surprise the acupuncture, natural herbs and special diets for detox purposes have made a significant difference in my life. Thank you Root Healing for being so attentive, caring, understanding and paying attention to all the details.read more
