"I came to Jenny about a year ago for
relief from long-term “repetitive-motion” problems that affected my
arms and shoulders. Jenny questioned me carefully, and efficiently
determined how best to treat my condition. She explained exactly how
she would proceed. In an atmosphere that was pleasant and secure, I
found the treatment very relaxing. After each session, I felt a deep
sense of calm and well-being.
Within a few weeks of treatments, I
experienced great relief from pain and increased flexibility. I was
able to resume my yoga practice and perform daily activities that I
had been finding increasingly difficult to do.
Jenny is a wonderful healer. A warm and
caring person, she is also well grounded and knowledgeable, not only
about acupuncture, but nutrition, Chinese medicine, yoga, and all
manner of natural health. And she uses her considerable intuitive
skills to explore what is going on in one’s emotional life and helps
one better understand the connections between mental and physical
Jenny is also a wise teacher. Her
advice to me has ranged from suggestions for good readings and
activities, to herbal remedies for upset stomach. I am in my mid
sixties now and as I continue to face the challenges of aging, I
feel very fortunate to have such a guide—one who helps in measurable
ways to improve my approach to health in body, mind, and spirit."

"Working with Jenny through acupuncture has helped me to peel back
the layers we wear as humans. Coming to better understand my
emotions and how they express themselves physically, I have been
able to lessen the frequency with which I experience migraine
headaches. As a practitioner, Jenny Wood has provided me with an
avenue of healing that is not only helping me physically but helping
me evolve on an emotional level. For anyone who has ever considered
acupuncture but hasn't made that leap, I highly recommend taking it
and contacting Jenny."

"I was referred to Jenny by my massage therapist for acupuncture treatment for a chronically painful, inflamed knee. I had undergone arthroscopic surgery about 18 months prior, to repair cartilage tears and ease the severe osteoarthritis in that knee. Over that time, I had lost a considerable amount of weight, increased my exercise regimen, and received regular massage therapy in the hopes of lessening the knee pain and inflammation. This all helped somewhat but did not give me the relief I hoped for.
After approximately six months of regular acupuncture treatments with Jenny, in conjunction with the aforementioned program, I found the level of relief I had been seeking. I still occasionally experience discomfort, but nothing like before acupuncture treatments.
Also during this time I had begun to experience 'hot flashes.' Jenny has treated me for these also, using a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I am a registered nurse who works on a daily basis with so-called mainstream medicine, and I fully believe in the interface of mainstream medical practices and alternative therapies. I strongly recommend Jenny to anyone exploring the use of acupuncture as part of their wellness program."

"As a migraine sufferer for 3 years, I tried everything Western medicine had to offer. I had seen 2 neurosurgeons and a migraine specialist, and they found nothing abnormal. No medications worked. My migraines actually got worse; I was having them every 7-10 days for 1-3 days’ duration. Finally, a coworker suggested I see Jenny.
The first time I met Jenny, I knew I found the right match. What impressed me most was that Jenny wanted to learn about all my health – not just the pain that brought me to her. During our initial consultation, she made the connection between my migraines and my lifelong dysmenorrhea [irregular and painful periods]. For the first time, I realized maybe there was an answer to this problem I had had for almost 30 years. The feeling of hope was very powerful.
To make a long story short, after my second acupuncture treatment, I haven’t had a migraine. Even better, my periods are regular for the first time in my life, without the use of Western pharmaceuticals.
I also recently received diagnoses of Type II diabetes and “fatty liver.” Working with Jenny and my primary care physician, with a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and lifestyle changes, I have successfully lowered my cholesterol, liver panels, and blood sugar to normal within 5 months.
Now I’m using acupuncture for other things, such as a back problem. Every treatment is part of my ongoing self-care. It’s wonderful that I can come to Harwich Health Center for chiropractic and massage as well as acupuncture. All together, they treat my whole person."
"I began seeing Jenny for 5 Element acupuncture in February 2003. For a large part of my life I have struggled with immune deficiencies due to some longterm health problems. The most recent was having Lyme disease twice.
I’ve tried a lot of different treatments. They would help me to a certain point, but I was still getting sick a lot and feeling rundown. Since seeing Jenny, I have not been sick in over a year. The combination of the 5 Element acupuncture and Chinese herbs that she gave me has helped boost my immune system and build up my energy. It has made a huge difference in my life."

"I started coming for acupuncture with Jenny after I fell on my sacrum in
February 2003. I also had had insomnia for a while and serious headaches
for many, many years. Really soon after starting treatment I started
sleeping through the night. One of the most important things Jenny has
helped me do is pinpoint my issues. Treatment is very relaxing, and the
whole process has really helped me become aligned with my heart."
