Acid Reflux

The top of my foot was purple after I broke my ankle. It was sore and purple for 3 years and I finally decided to do something about it. He also helped me with my acid reflux and menstrual cramps.

After one treatment the purple color faded away a little and the pain was way less. After 3 treatments the color of my foot became normal and I was PAIN FREE! My acid reflux and menstrual cramps are also GONE! I’m very satisfied with Dr. Healy. He is very gentle and listens carefully. He has helped me with so much and I’m very thankful.

ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)

I have been a patient of Dr. Gene Healy’s for over three months. In January of 2015 I was diagnosed with ALS. Through the use of Chinese herbs and Acupuncture, Gene helped me to improve my well being in many ways. Acupuncture cut down my frequent urination by more than half, relieved stomach gas, cured a sharp pain in my left hand and gave my feet mobility. The herbs helped me to cough up phlegm when I had bronchitis and to settle my stomach. The herbs also keep my energy level up. In many ways he has helped me to maintain a wonderful feeling of well being.

Ankle Pain

Osteoarthritis pain and swelling in both knees and swelling in both ankles. Post operative nerve pain on right side due to lung cancer surgery.

The swelling has gone down in both my knees and ankles, especially on the right. The pain in both my knees and on my side has gotten a little better. I recommend Dr. Healy to someone who has osteoarthritis pain and swelling.

I have been very happy with the improvement in my knees and ankles. The post operative nerve has lessened.

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.

Anxiety

I had severe anxiety issues that were creating very uncomfortable symptoms such as shortness of breath, palpitations, disturbed sleep, dizziness, and severe episodes of pain.

After treatments, I have returned to full functionality and overall ease. My energy level has returned and emotional stability has sustained. After changing diet and maintaining treatment plan, my body has returned to a normal state.

Dr. Healy takes an overall approach to the issues which brings about a complete healing, not just treatment of symptoms. I am more than satisfied. Dr. Healy is more than my medical provider, he has become my friend.

Arm Pain

I went to see Dr. Gene Healy for a bicep injury. After about 5 treatments of Acupuncture, along with herbs, I felt no pain and was able to return to normal activities like golf. I was very satisfied with the results and have returned for treatment with other areas. I would definitely recommend Dr. Healy to family and friends, especially to those with arm pain.

Arthritis

Are you a person who shutters when you hear the side effects of pharmaceutical medicine? I was that person….my shoulder was frozen and I couldn’t raise my arm above my head, my knee had arthritis,a hormone imbalance, lymphedema, and I suffered for years with neuropathy(foot nerve pain) that was a result of chemotherapy. In my head I was still young, but my body was on a different page. I did some research online and decided to go to Root Healing in Dunedin. Dr Healy has had extensive training in Asia and is highly-qualified in traditional Chinese herbal medicine. I am a patient and each week I am getting stronger and healthier thanks to the excellent care I am getting..

I came to Root Healing Acupuncture with neck and back pain and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Since I have been receiving treatment, my pain levels have decreased and I have stopped taking one of the RA medications that had terrible side effects. Acupuncture has helped significantly with the pain levels.

Dr. Healy and Dr. Kajdasz care about their patients and the entire staff is dedicated to your wellness. I am very satisfied with the progress and change to my health in working with Root Healing these past 5 months. I recommend them to friends and family and anyone who needs help.

Back Pain

I had strained my lower back area around L4+L5 vertebrae and I had little time to recover before my vacation. So, I asked Dr. Healy if he could help speed up my recovery time with some acupuncture.

My improvements were in circulation as well as an increased speed of recovery. I couldn’t afford to be sedentary. Dr. Healy isolated my problem area quickly and with his treatments I regained 50% of my flexibility within one treatment.

My overall level of satisfaction is high. Dr. Healy was efficient. He listened well to my needs and his kind demeanor made for a great health recovery experience.

Scott E

Back pain , Safety Harbor, FL

I had Pain in lower back, swelling in feet and ankles. Water retention that was caused by an allergy to medication. It would not go away in period of 2~3 weeks even with elevating legs for long period of time. My legs and ankles have greatly improved.

A serious problem I had with indigestion, swallowing and producing gas so much when I lay down. I had trouble sleeping. After the first treatment I had little or no indigestion or excess gas.

I certainly think the treatments helped me although I was not sure of a new procedure and had tried many others before with little or no help. Hopefully others would be happy to try Dr. Healy’s skill on their problems.

I am happy and found relief so quickly in several areas. I encouraged my husband who had COPD to see if Dr. Healy could help him. The results have shown improvements when nothing else seemed to give him much hope.

We thank you for our improved health and will be glad to look forward to the future with a much better quality of life.

I sneezed and slipped a disc in my back. L5. Yes, a sneeze did that to me. I could barely get myself out of a chair and into a car to see Dr. Gene but managed to do so. Dr. Gene spent a tremendous amount of time with me and my wife, explaining his background, his culture and acupuncture itself as I have never tried an alternative method. After just one treatment I felt better. After each treatment I continued to get better and better. Am truly amazed. After a couple of months am almost back to 100%. No drugs, No shots and NO SURGERY. It doesn’t hurt. Dr. Gene, his wife, his sister are all great. They greet you with a smile, take time to speak with you. This isn’t a clinic of rushing people in and out as fast as possible. It’s truly a place that cares about getting you better. If you have never tried Acupuncture you should, the only thing you have to lose is the pain that your in. Well worth it.

I had facial spasm 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 Acupuncture.

Carmela G

Back Pain, Facial Spasm, Clearwater, FL

I came to see Dr. Healy due to pain in hip, knee, neck and lower back (in that order). Also, hot flashes. Pain in hip, knee and back are gone, as is that in lower back. Hot flashes are almost gone.

Nellie K

Lower back, Hip, Knee, Neck Pain, Safety Harbor, FL

My experience with Dr. Healy has been amazing. I have been treated for hot flashes, lower back/neck/shoulder pain, and digestion issues. Dr. Healy was very personable and patient to determine the best treatment option for my specific needs. I was previously treated by a Chiropractor for my lower back, but did not get the long term results that Dr. Healy provided with acupuncture. I work in an office on a computer all day, and my lower back as well as neck/shoulder pain was unbearable. Gene (Dr. Healy) listened to my many concerns and within 2 visits my neck, shoulder and back pain was gone.. I couldn’t believe the difference in such few visits.

Dr. Healy also is working with me through herbal medicine to treat my “hot flashes”. Night sweats and hot flashes have greatly diminished since I started my herbal medicine about 4 weeks ago. Of course, I do have some residual hot flashes, but nothing compared to before. I am still continuing my herbal medicine regiment to continue to regulate my hormonal imbalance. You will definitely get the time, attention, and care you deserve with the entire Root Healing family. I can honestly say I have never received the kind of personal care anywhere else, and I am a 50 year old woman.

My digestion has also improved after years of acid reflux, and slow digestion. Dr. Healy is concerned about every area of discomfort I express to him and is committed to ensuring I receive the best long term results. He also offers meditation which I have enjoyed which provides the spiritual and emotional balance I much needed in my busy life.

I am so thankful that Dr. Healy has decided to settle in Dunedin and offer me and the community the opportunity to achieve the best health possible with his guidance.

I arrived at Root Healing Acupuncture horribly over weight! Also, I was suffering with lower back and knee pain. Stress through the roof.

I am delighted that in spite of a lot of traveling my back is vastly improved. My appetite, cravings and stress are under control and still losing weight. We are now working on the bad knee. I have already referred people and will gladly continue to do so.

I am very satisfied and thankful.

Deborah S

Back Pain and Weight Loss, Dunedin, FL

Thank you so much for the nurturing care you have provided me. When I first arrived in your office, February 2015, I was only seeking some relief from my lower back pain. However after you conducted a thorough health screening, we discussed that I suffer from daily headaches and periodic migraine headaches that often cause me to be hospitalized. I have seen Neurologist and Allergist and they were only able to treat my symptoms with medications. I have spent hundreds of hours with massage therapist, but this only provided temporary relief from the head and neck pain. For more than 15 years I have taken pills daily to reduce or minimize my headaches.

After I received a series of consecutive acupuncture sessions, and I participated in a 21 day purification, I was only experiencing headaches every 3 or 4 days. My lower back pain was almost gone, and I lost almost 10 pounds.

I continued acupuncture treatments, 2 – 3 times a week for almost 5 weeks, and we added daily herbs. I was amazed I no longer needed to take medication for my headaches. I wanted to seek relief for my back pain but what I received was a correction to my healthy functions.

The treatments and care you provided has eliminated my back pain and removed my headaches. Whatever my imbalances were, they are now gone! I feel great, I have more energy and I sleep more soundly. I have been headaches free now for almost 3 weeks.

My 87 year old grandmother has suffered with lower back pain and sciatic nerve issues. She just had her 1st treatment today, with Dr. Gene and she had immediate relief. I can’t wait to see how her mobility improves and her pain reduces once she completes the next 5 treatments. Dr. Gene was very kind and gentle in working with my grandmother.

We are fortunate to have you as our new healthcare provider. Thank you and your wonderful staff again for your valuable time and heartfelt support.

Hi, my name is Thomas, and I am 94 years old. I had back pain at a level of 10 before I came to Root Healing Acupuncture. I never thought I would walk without pain again. Now my pain is 0 out of 10! Thanks, Root Healing Acupuncture!

Thomas

Back pain, Dunedin, FL

I came to Dr. Healy with stomach lesions caused by anti-inflammatory medications, digestion issues, vitality issues and lower back and disc issues. My stomach lesions are almost healed due to acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I am able to eat a larger variety of foods and my digestion has improved. My vitality has also improved and my lower back and disc issues are all but gone.

I would definitely refer people to Dr. Healy. Western Medicine has its place in healthcare, but oriental medicine treats the whole body and the underlying problem and imbalances and so gets to the root of the health problems. I consider Dr. Healy my primary health care physician and I believe that he will keep me healthy.

Gloria B

Lower back and Disk issues, Digestion issues, Dunedin, FL

I came to see Dr. Healy for high blood sugar, tight muscles in upper back due to stress, lower back pain, pinched nerve in neck, and digestion and vitality issues. My blood sugar has stabilized within normal range with the use of Chinese herbs. Also with the herbal formulations, my digestion and vitality have improved dramatically. My back and nerve pinch were relieved with acupuncture.

I am completely satisfied with the care that I receive from Dr. Healy and would refer friends and family to him with absolute confidence.

Blood Pressure

I went to Dr. Healy for a “wellness” visit. Don’t want to admit being over 55 and having high blood pressure and other issues I blame on a Sedentary job. I am so impressed with immediate results of being relaxed, sleeping better and in the morning when I take my blood pressure it was in the normal range, 10 point decrease. He is very thorough and kind. Give acupuncture a try, I am confident you will be impressed as well.

Breathing Problems

While going to chemo, I had severe pain in my left hip. Cindy from radiology mentioned an acupuncturist on site. I talked to my oncologist Dr. Jooma who said, “Go for it.” On a Wednesday, I met Gene and Serina.

I met with Gene 3 times and the pain in my hip improved. During another chemo session, I was rushed to MPH for 2 weeks unable to breathe. 5 weeks later I was constantly on oxygen.

I saw Gene again and he introduced me to a new therapy, moxibustion, for my lungs. After that visit, I am no longer on oxygen.

My quality of life has been restored to a degree I thought I would not ever see again. Gene Healy is a very calm, considerate man who takes time to explain the tactics he is using on me. My level of satisfaction is off the charts. Gene and Serina have lifted my spirits to a level I cannot do justice to with mere words. They gave LIFE back to me!

After four acupuncture treatment and herbal therapy I am feeling much better. I can go to work and feel great. My stomach has settled and my husband said I have a new outlook on life.

A series of acupuncture treatments made it possible to enjoy all the things I came to Florida for – biking, exercising, days at the beach. Herbs also helped with digestive issues at the same time. The whole staff is friendly, professional and accommodating. If you are in the Dunedin area looking for acupuncture, I would heartily recommend Root Healing.

Elbow Pain

I am a 40 something year old man that has lived and worked a fairly hard life. About 2 years ago I was told by more than one orthepedist that due to the strenuous nature of my job I had suffered a significant amount of tendon and ligament damage that may require surgery. Even then, the surgery wasn’t going to be a 100% guarantee of success.

My pain was debilitating. Some days I managed to take enough anti-inflamatories to get through. Eventually I couldn’t even lift a glass to drink.

A last resort option of “acupuncture therapy” was all I had left.

My first visit with Dr. Healy was AMAZING! He listened to everything I had to say, never interrupting or suggesting pills as a solution to fix me the typical way. After about 2 months of treatments and a change of lifestyle; I was a new man. My children and wife weren’t nervous about hurting me anymore. I am now absolutely pain free and able to do anything I wish.

My only hope is that more people open their eyes to a VERY REAL SOLUTION to many different afflictions.

May you all find the peace you deserve and spread the word loudly about Dr.Healy. He is what all doctors should strive to be.

I am extremely happy with the results thus far, I arrive early most times and I’m always greeted by name and welcomed to start early. I am feeling much better!

Since I started going to see the team at Root Healing my life has had a sense of wellness. Gene Healy and the whole group are very supportive and have helped me just as much as the treatments. I was a little nervous at first but after the first treatment I was sold. I have multiple conditions that we have developed a treatment plan for and I have already been able to cut down on some medication and have been sleeping like a baby! I thought if I could sleep better and nothing else I would be happy, but it has been so much more. Less headaches, less stress, less “stomach” issues and a real sense of calm and wellness. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate this a 12! This is not a cure all, but it certainly putting me well on the path to being in control again.

Headache

I have a 20 year history of migraines and headaches. I have been under the care of multiple neurologists and physicians to help treat them; finding some success but no answers as to the cause of the headaches. I became very uncomfortable with the number of prescriptions (for medicines that treat other conditions, i.e. blood pressure, depression, seizures) and wanted to seek a more holistic approach to my health.

Since beginning acupuncture and herbal therapy, my headaches are decreasing in both frequency and intensity. Previously, migraines would send me home for the day – into a dark, quiet room with an ice pack. Now, I am able to either keep a headache from fully developing, or when I do get one, it is less intense. Having such a long history, I cannot expect to eliminate headaches within a month. I am hopeful and committed and already see the benefit of treating the cause of the headache rather than the symptom.

I feel like Root Healing is Dr. Gene’s calling. I can see his passion to help people. I feel truly cared for, which is priceless when you think about how important your health is and how essential the doctor is in facilitating that. I want my loved ones to have the same experience!

Dr. Gene, Serina, Suszanne are a great Team! From the first steps through the door, I feel genuinely welcomed and appreciated. There is concern not only for my health but me as a person. The office is run efficiently and they are friendly, caring and respectful of my time. Dr. Gene did a great job educating me on Traditional Chinese Medicine in a linear and progressive way that really helped me understand an alternative form of medicine. It allowed me to make an informed decision on the course of treatment that best suited me, got me in tune with how my body was feeling and helped monitor progress. I’m excited to continue using this holistic, intuitive approach to restore and maintain my health.

Headaches and TMJ are what brought me to seek care with Dr Healy. I have had both symptoms for over 20 years, I had been to a dentist, optometrist allergist, chiropractor and massage but nothing seemed to work. Don’t make acupuncture your last choice like 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. I would highly recommend Dr. Healy and associates as I am highly satisfied. Dr Healy and Dr Sorrells have been beneficial in my pain relief with headache and TMJ.

My level of satisfaction is off the charts. Gene and Serina have lifted my spirits to a level I cannot do justice to with mere words. They gave LIFE back to me!

Hip Pain, Breathing Problems, Cancer, Tarpon Springs, FL

In July 2014, I had a reoccurrence of Bladder Cancer. I have neuropathy from prior Chemo. I have Bursitis of the right hip and cartilage damage in the right knee. I am being treated by a very good oncologist whose goal is remission. I needed holistic medicine and Gene was recommended by Florida Cancer Specialists.

I am about a third way through of the treatment plan that was formulated by Gene. My very painful Bursitis has been reduced by 75%, my knee pain is down 80%, and my neuropathy, on both feet, is down 50%. All have been accomplished without doctor prescribed pain medication. I am feeling better every day. Gene is a very knowledgeable medical practitioner and I would absolutely refer people to him.

Gene has exceeded all of my expectations. He listens to your thoughts on your symptoms. He thoroughly discusses your problems and describes an effective treatment, specifically for you.

Hormones

I came to see Dr. Healy on the advice of my mom. I was having issues with my hormones which was causing vertigo, as well as chronic anxiety (despite western medicine). Dr. Healy has helped me transition off of my hormones and my vertigo is gone. Also, has greatly improved my general sense of calm. I’m staying on a maintenance level now to keep it up. I love what acupuncture has done for me!

I would absolutely refer friends and family to Dr. Healy. I love what we have done together.

Hot Flashes

My experience with Dr. Healy has been amazing. I have been treated for hot flashes, lower back/neck/shoulder pain, and digestion issues. Dr. Healy was very personable and patient to determine the best treatment option for my specific needs. I was previously treated by a Chiropractor for my lower back, but did not get the long term results that Dr. Healy provided with acupuncture. I work in an office on a computer all day, and my lower back as well as neck/shoulder pain was unbearable. Gene (Dr. Healy) listened to my many concerns and within 2 visits my neck, shoulder and back pain was gone.. I couldn’t believe the difference in such few visits.

Dr. Healy also is working with me through herbal medicine to treat my “hot flashes”. Night sweats and hot flashes have greatly diminished since I started my herbal medicine about 4 weeks ago. Of course, I do have some residual hot flashes, but nothing compared to before. I am still continuing my herbal medicine regiment to continue to regulate my hormonal imbalance. You will definitely get the time, attention, and care you deserve with the entire Root Healing family. I can honestly say I have never received the kind of personal care anywhere else, and I am a 50 year old woman.

My digestion has also improved after years of acid reflux, and slow digestion. Dr. Healy is concerned about every area of discomfort I express to him and is committed to ensuring I receive the best long term results. He also offers meditation which I have enjoyed which provides the spiritual and emotional balance I much needed in my busy life.

I am so thankful that Dr. Healy has decided to settle in Dunedin and offer me and the community the opportunity to achieve the best health possible with his guidance.

Insomnia

I had insomnia (sleeping 3hours or less) and increased anxiety – associated with use of Tamoxifen. I have also been treated for tendonitis of my right ankle and shoulder pain, resulting from torn rotator cuff. The impact of acupuncture treatment has been amazingly beneficial to me. I am sleeping 5.5 – 6.5 hours on regular bases. Anxiety has reduced greatly. Increased left shoulder mobility with pain reduced to 2-3(used to be 8). Ankle pain and swelling is also improving. Treatment and good service experience. Has been beyond my expectations.

I came to Dr. Healy with a terrible migraine and upset stomach. I also suffered from Diverticulitis, back and neck pain, sinus congestion, sleep problems and chronic canker sores. I have been plagued with sinus problems and canker sores for about 50 years.

After getting treatments form D. Healy I haven’t had any migraines, sinus problems, or canker sores. My sleeping and stomach problems have also been resolved. I sleep now and stay asleep. I quit taking prescription medications that I have been taking for years and lost 14 lbs on a 21 day cleanse. I am eating better and In turn feel much better.

I have told several people how excited I am with all of my results and recommend Dr. Healy all the time.

I am very satisfied with Dr. Healy and his staff. I have been treated very nicely and everyone is friendly and always eager to help with any needs you might have.

Knee Pain

I went and saw Dr. Gene Healy for numbness in fingers that occurred on and off throughout the day. I have also received treatment for knee pain. The numbness improved immediately with only one short episode in the first and second weeks. I received my first treatment for knee pain yesterday and for the FIRST TIME in YEARS I had no pain in the night. I am extremely pleased with the results and have already referred others!

Dr. Gene Healy has one of the best attributes of a healer: he listens. Carefully. The second of his best attributes is competence and effectiveness. Dr. Gene’s treatments have been of immeasurable help reducing knee pain after I was injured in a fall. In addition, he is working with me on more general life issues, including menopause and weight management. I highly recommend Root Healing Acupuncture.

After I met Dr. Healy all symptoms above greatly reduced. Energy level greatly improved shortly after my first visit, and my quality of life and pain gets better with each visit. Dr. Healy had made such a difference in my quality of life. I am totally satisfied. My quality of life has gotten so much better that I now enjoy all social events and family time.

Menstrual Disorders

The top of my foot was purple after I broke my ankle. It was sore and purple for 3 years and I finally decided to do something about it. He also helped me with my acid reflux and menstrual cramps.

After one treatment the purple color faded away a little and the pain was way less. After 3 treatments the color of my foot became normal and I was PAIN FREE! My acid reflux and menstrual cramps are also GONE! I’m very satisfied with Dr. Healy. He is very gentle and listens carefully. He has helped me with so much and I’m very thankful.

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.

Dr. Healy & his team have brought great relief to my mind, body and spirit in just a few short months. They have assisted in eliminating my nasty menstrual cramps. I had a pain free period. Yes ladies…you read that right…PAIN FREE PERIOD. They are possible, it is not a myth. In addition, my night sweats have been eliminated and my stress levels have decreased significantly. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Healy, this team and their methods of treatment.

Paige R

Menstrual issues, Safety Harbor, FL

I came to Root Healing Acupuncture for menstrual problems. My period started and I bled for 4 weeks. My OB doctor gave me birth control pills for this problem but it didn’t work .I received one acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbs and when I got home after the treatment the bleeding had already stopped. A month passed and my period came normally and I had no problem at all.

I also brought in my mother who had serious digestive issues after she was treated for shingles in the hospital. We were scheduled for an endoscopy but wanted to try Dr. Healy’s care first. My mom’s stomach calmed down right on the table. Dr. Healy prescribed Chinese herbs and a bottle of supplements and she was healed. It was amazing.

Thank you so much Dr. Healy!

Migraine

I have a 20 year history of migraines and headaches. I have been under the care of multiple neurologists and physicians to help treat them; finding some success but no answers as to the cause of the headaches. I became very uncomfortable with the number of prescriptions (for medicines that treat other conditions, i.e. blood pressure, depression, seizures) and wanted to seek a more holistic approach to my health.

Since beginning acupuncture and herbal therapy, my headaches are decreasing in both frequency and intensity. Previously, migraines would send me home for the day – into a dark, quiet room with an ice pack. Now, I am able to either keep a headache from fully developing, or when I do get one, it is less intense. Having such a long history, I cannot expect to eliminate headaches within a month. I am hopeful and committed and already see the benefit of treating the cause of the headache rather than the symptom.

I feel like Root Healing is Dr. Gene’s calling. I can see his passion to help people. I feel truly cared for, which is priceless when you think about how important your health is and how essential the doctor is in facilitating that. I want my loved ones to have the same experience!

Dr. Gene, Serina, Suszanne are a great Team! From the first steps through the door, I feel genuinely welcomed and appreciated. There is concern not only for my health but me as a person. The office is run efficiently and they are friendly, caring and respectful of my time. Dr. Gene did a great job educating me on Traditional Chinese Medicine in a linear and progressive way that really helped me understand an alternative form of medicine. It allowed me to make an informed decision on the course of treatment that best suited me, got me in tune with how my body was feeling and helped monitor progress. I’m excited to continue using this holistic, intuitive approach to restore and maintain my health.

I came to Root Healing Acupuncture for fibromyalgia, migraine, hormone imbalance and IBS.

Since I started going to see the team at Root Healing my life has had a sense of wellness. Gene Healy and the whole group are very supportive and have helped me just as much as the treatments. I was a little nervous at first but after the first treatment I was sold. I have multiple conditions that we have developed a treatment plan for and I have already been able to cut down on some medication and have been sleeping like a baby! I thought if I could sleep better and nothing else I would be happy, but it has been so much more. Less headaches, less stress, less “stomach” issues and a real sense of calm and wellness. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate this a 12! This is not a cure all, but it certainly putting me well on the path to being in control again.

After treatments, I no longer have any shooting pain in left arm. I am able to sleep better. I have my energy back and able to enjoy my life again. I am blessed to have met Dr. Healy.

Herbal formula taken as tea 2times a day has definitely diminished frequency of urination at night and as a consequence, I sleep better and feel better during the day. Urination feels complete, emptying bladder.

I am impressed by his concern for patients and his clarity of the explanation of diseases and treatment plans. His meditation experience adds a calm that infuses his “bedside manner” He’s a great speaker, too. It’s relaxing to be with him.

Sinus Infection

I came to see Dr. Healy for treatment of a severe sinus infection with fever. I now have the ability to return to daily functions. I would, absolutely, refer friends and family. Dr. Healy has given me outstanding medical treatment. I feel privileged to be his patient.

Such a loving, talented doctor with a terrific office staff. For me, he cracked the code in many areas, including: lowering high blood pressure, and dissolving Morton’s Nueroma, clearing serious sinus congestion and curing what is most probably Reynaud’s Syndrome. I cannot say enough about this practice! My advice is to start here always, as Gene will direct you to another physician if necessary.

Tendonitis

I had insomnia (sleeping 3hours or less) and increased anxiety – associated with use of Tamoxifen. I have also been treated for tendonitis of my right ankle and shoulder pain, resulting from torn rotator cuff. The impact of acupuncture treatment has been amazingly beneficial to me. I am sleeping 5.5 – 6.5 hours on regular bases. Anxiety has reduced greatly. Increased left shoulder mobility with pain reduced to 2-3(used to be 8). Ankle pain and swelling is also improving. Treatment and good service experience. Has been beyond my expectations.

The 21 day Detox helped me to lose weight(14lbs) and increase my energy. It helped me(forced me) to learn healthier food choices and I think gave me the keys to a healthier lifestyle.

I came to see Dr. Healy due to low energy, knee pain and I wanted to lose weight permanently.

After treatments and detox, I got off sugar. No, to low, cravings. High energy and no knee pain. I feel more like exercising to continue my quality of life. I lost 11 pounds in the two weeks of doing the detox.

I am very happy with Dr. Healy. I have been treated by many holistic doctors and doctors of oriental medicine. Dr. Healy is, by far, the best I have seen.

I arrived at Root Healing Acupuncture horribly over weight! Also, I was suffering with lower back and knee pain. Stress through the roof.

I am delighted that in spite of a lot of traveling my back is vastly improved. My appetite, cravings and stress are under control and still losing weight. We are now working on the bad knee. I have already referred people and will gladly continue to do so.

I am very satisfied and thankful.
