I am so appreciative of my patients, and I am humbled by their kind words, some of which can be read here. Because almost half of my patients come from referrals, perhaps one of these testimonials will speak to you, creating the “referral” that motivates you to call Good Health Acupuncture today.
The best forty minutes of my week is how I feel as I walk out of Ann-Marie’s, “ Good Health Acupuncture”. Having been recommended while undergoing Breast Cancer treatments to help pain, hot flashes and over all well being. I have many caretakers through this journey, however I feel Ann-Marie is the one who treats my entire person with her knowledge and compassion. I highly recommend Good Health Acupuncture to help improve your life.
Thank you Ann-Marie!
Hi Ann Marie,I’ve healed so much since my auto accident 6 months ago. I want to thank you for your part in that. Not only for the acupuncture treatments & your wisdom & skill–but you were a major “support” to me during a very difficult time. I see you also not as merely a “practitioner” but someone who truly cares. Thank you so much!
I appreciate you,
In May of 2006, I had my first anxiety attack. I was prescribed an anti-anxiety medication, by my doctor. I didn’t have any more attacks after that and was hoping this was a one time thing. Two weeks later my world came crashing down around me, due to a very stressful week. After that the anxiety attacks were constant. My doctor prescribed me antidepressants to stop the attacks. I soon learned that my body rejected the medication; I had serious side affects with every antidepressant I tried. I was so sick from the combination of medications and constant anxiety attacks that I stopped doing everything. I could not be by myself, someone always had to be with me. I was no longer able to drive, and go to most places. I became a prisoner in my own body, I feared that I would never get well again. Medical doctors told me there was nothing more they could do for me, and I would just have to figure out a way to accept my illness and learn to live with it. I went to see Ann-Marie after my husband suggested acupuncture. Ann-Marie has saved my life. I have come so far with her help, I am so much better physically and emotionally. I can now stay home by myself and take care of my children, I am also able to drive again. I am not 100% well, but I am on my way to getting my life back. I owe this all to Ann-Marie, she has never once given up on me. She is my hero!!!
I have suffered with Tendonitis and Carpel Tunnel for many years. Thanks to Ann-Marie I am finally pain free and can live life to the fullest. Thank you Ann-Marie!
With today’s amazing treatment, my back pain is reduced at least 75, maybe 80 percent. I think I’d characterize it today as “a little sore on bending to pick items up” — as opposed to “ow, ow, ow.” I’m moving SO much better I just can’t believe it. I’m actually walking like ME again — fast and free. I could just skip with relief. I am just stunned at what a gifted healer you are with so very many different conditions.
Thanks so much,
Ann-Marie Yeager is an amazing and gifted acupuncturist. Her genuine and honest approach to wellness comes natural to her. She makes every effort to give each patient the utmost care and respect, going above and beyond, to help them with their wellness journeys. When I refer patients to her I am confident that they will be given the highest quality of care possible; similar to the care I have received as being a patient of hers. I have been fortunate to work with Ann-Marie as a patient and health care provider and I am honored to be able to recommend her to everyone.
Ann Marie, You are the best I cannot believe the difference in only a few visits! I had headaches and pain in my upper shoulders to the very point of my pain threshold and now it is gone! I cannot thank you enough. You have helped me in ways that others have not!
I have experienced many positive benefits from acupuncture including improved emotional well being & relief from physical discomforts. Ann-Marie is not only good at what she does, she is also very interested in and compassionate with her clients. Her professionalism is delivered with warmth – enhancing the whole experience.
When I first started seeing Ann-Marie, I was afflicted with depression, so bad that I cried every time I saw Ann-Marie for the first 3 months. The reason I sought out acupuncture in the first place was because of my severe PMS. It shadowed everything in my life. For three weeks of every month, I was miserable, and not coping well. On top of everything else, I had adrenal fatigue. Today, I can say that I am a completely different person. I am no longer defined by pain and depression. Ann-Marie is a compassionate and knowledgeable practitioner. I would and do recommend her to anybody.
I have horrible pain every month and this month it just happened to fall on the day I was going in to get acupuncture. About an hour after my session with Ann-Marie, the pain was completely gone, along with the nausea, dizziness, and irritability. Also I have the beginning of carpal tunnel and I noticed less pain for longer periods of time after just 3 sessions, and it continues to get better. Ann-Marie has helped me so much, I can’t even describe.
Ann-Marie is very professional and always takes the time to listen and care about your problems and needs. She is very intelligent, and great at what she does. I would highly recommend her to everyone I know- and I do! Thank you Ann-Marie!
Ann-Marie has been of great help to me. I have suffered multiple auto accidents and have been in pain for 8 years. While I am better through PT and chiropractic, the missing piece for my well-being turns out to be Acupuncture from Ann-Marie. She also helped my 89 year old father greatly. His ankle has itched for many years and it stopped itching in just a few sessions. I highly recommend her!
Hello, my name is Catherine. I am a typical overworked RN, and I came to Ann-Marie about 3 years ago for relief of severe GERD which the best of specialized Western medicine could not relieve with drugs (expensive Protonix and sedating Reglan), procedures, or anything else. I had resorted to fitfully sleeping on a wedge pillow on the couch for over a year, and things were just getting worse. I had experience with other acupuncturists, but I finally chose Ann-Marie for her phenomenally broad knowledge base on all things medical, her comforting kindness, and her absolute commitment to the best personalized care for each client.
It’s been quite a journey for me, but this is the short version… at my first treatment, I heard my stomach growl for the first time in years (my peristalsis had almost stopped) and improved over 2 years to the point where I could stop the awful Reglan and sleep comfortably through the night lying flat in my bed. I will soon try to step down off the Protonix.
There were some surprises, too. After 6 weeks of weekly treatments, I gradually realized that my craving for sweets was gone. When I casually mentioned this to Ann-Marie, she verified that this was a natural effect of the balancing of my chi.
Then I developed a painful and debilitating repetitive use injury of my right thumb from my job. My doctor was open-minded enough to agree to try acupuncture when it was clear that the usual Western approaches were not enough. Through a combination of approaches including Western medicine, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, and creative reworking of the way I use my hands, I am pain and symptom free after a year.
After the first year of treatments, my long-time co-workers started spontaneously telling me that I seemed happier and was less stressed out. This came as a surprise to me, because I had never considered myself depressed or overly reactive, but after thinking things over, I have to admit I feel more relaxed overall, and have more energy. There are probably several reasons for this, and I think acupuncture has helped.
Last but not least, I had undergone expensive and painful Western fertility treatments all of last year with 2 consecutive doctors. I ended up in the emergency room. The whole experience was very impersonal and traumatic. I finally had to give up… and decided to go on with my life. Shortly thereafter… yes, I found out I had gotten pregnant on my own! There are, again, several possible reasons for my little miracle, but Ann-Marie had been balancing my hormones and working on my fertility as well.
If you are looking for help with your own situation, here is my advice, as a health professional and a patient: Be your own advocate and research your condition. Keep an open mind. Be patient. Most of all, surround yourself with good people- not all health professionals are alike. Ann-Marie has been one of those good people in my life, and that’s why I recommend her to everyone I know.
I had been experiencing wandering pain and numbness in both hands for a few days. Because the symptoms were so inconsistent, my doctor told me to wait 4-6 weeks to see if it would improve. Shortly after, I had 5 days of terrible discomfort and lack of movement and was unable to function as a mother to my 3 young boys. I couldn’t wait another 3-5 weeks. I went to see Ann-Marie and had no pain for a week. The pain eventually returned, but after another visit, I haven’t had it since!
I also suffered from tendonitis in my knee. I had been off my bike for two weeks. Ann-Marie worked on my knee when it was at its worst. I fully expected to get off the table and have the same pressure, stiffness and soreness I had been experiencing for the past 5 weeks. When I put my foot on the ground I couldn’t believe the difference. My knee felt 75% better and the next day, even better. I stayed off my bike and returned to Ann-Marie a week later and am now symptom free. I am cycling again and I’m certain that the mix of rest and acupuncture got me back on my bike much sooner than rest alone. Thanks Ann-Marie! You Rock!
I want to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for me. You are an amazing woman and healer. The work you do through your “Good Health Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs, Inc.” is incredible. From the first day I met you I had complete confidence and trust in you and your work. I came to you as I was being treated for Breast Cancer and suffering from several side effects including over thirty days of constant nausea and the work you did helped me so much and I was not nauseous any longer you helped me get it under control. This became the beginning of a great relationship as you have helped me with many other symptoms that came along (sciatica, allergies, and headaches and more.) Your enthusiasm and love of your work is nothing less than extraordinary and your kind heart and concern for your patients is so appreciated. All these wonderful traits/talents and gifts make you the outstanding professional and great Acupuncturist that you are, and you truly do improve the quality of life for you patients.
The work you do is truly a special gift and your generosity is a blessing. Going through cancer is not an easy journey. It can also be costly and because of your kind generous work and gifts to Hope Lives I as a cancer patient have been able to receive your work/services. They have been a huge blessing in my life and road to recovery; the best blessing of this gift is knowing you. You are a most talented and gifted person, watching you work is amazing. You know what you are doing and you love what you are doing. You are one of the best at doing what you do; your dedications to both your work and patients is incredible. You are a true and great healer who cares about her patients.
So again I say THANK YOU for all you have and continue to do for me. You have been and remain an important part of my healing form cancer and renewing a healthy happy loving quality of life. The world is truly a better place because of people like you.
Be happy and healthy always,
I first went to see Ann-Marie for problems with insomnia related to Adrenal Fatigue. The insomnia was resolved quickly, my energy level increased and depression/anxiety symptoms I had been having decreased without the use of medication. I had a rash that I had tried multiple creams/ointments on. Ann-Marie did 2 treatments specific to the rash and it healed without further flare-ups.
Acupuncture treatments for my chronic Bursitis in my knee has decreased pain dramatically & allowed me to continue to hike steep mountains without severe pain.
Ann-Marie is a caring, understanding & very knowledgeable practitioner. I look forward to visits to her office and the calm, serene atmosphere it provides.
I have been diagnosed with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS); there is no cure for this and the only methods to help the pain are medication, massage, and acupuncture. I was never a believer in acupuncture…I thought, “How can a few needles in your body release pain?” I decided to try acupuncture simply out of desperation and did not have any hope it would work. Boy was I wrong!
Acupuncture has saved me in more than one way. More specifically, Ann-Marie Yeager has saved me. I met Ann-Marie after I had two successful treatments elsewhere. I found Good Health Acupuncture to be a truly calming and relaxing atmosphere, which was new to me. Ann-Marie greeted me with a caring and friendly attitude. She really listened to what I had to say and was willing to take things as slowly as I wanted to. Ann-Marie has a wonderfully kind and genuine way of dealing with her clients and the atmosphere helps one to relax fully during treatment.
After seeing Ann-Marie for four visits, I am experiencing the most pain relief that I have ever had since being diagnosed with CRPS. Thanks to Ann-Marie, my pain reduces by two or more points on the pain scale and now lasts up to approximately 11 hours after treatment! I would and have recommended Ann-Marie to anyone who has some pain or discomfort.
There’s no one to equal Ann-Marie Yeager as a health care provider. She’s discovered issues that my allergy/asthma doctor of national renown has missed. Her advice on nutrition and supplements is on the money. I don’t miss an opportunity to rave about Ann-Marie and how her acupuncture treatments and suggestions have helped me, because she’s just plain fantastic.
Thanks again for bringing wellness back to me. My gratefulness toward you extends beyond this testimonial:
” I twisted my knee on a ski trip and was in great pain. After my first acupuncture treatment, I noticed that I could move my knee in multiple directions. And six week long inflammation is gone! By the third session, I’m back to my running routine again. And I could bend my knees without pain. Thanks for taking such good care of me, Ann Marie!”
In Aug of 2007, I began to feel severe fatigue, head pressure, headaches, eye strain, light headedness and a fainting sensation that lasted for less than a second and then was gone. I also had trouble concentrating. I felt like I was constantly in a fog with clear thinking just out of reach.
I saw my family doctor in Sept of 2007 and was diagnosed with depression, low testosterone and low vitamin D. I was put on medication for each of these disorders. My March of 2008, I still had the same exact symptoms even though I was on the medication. I then had a MRI, CAT scan, inner ear testing, and an eye exam to try to diagnose whatever was wrong. All tests showed I was in good physical health.
By July of 2008, I decided that I was just going to have to live with these symptoms. My wife had suggested acupuncture in the past but I was skeptical and refused to try it. In Sept. Of 2008, I was so desperate that I finally decided to give it a shot. I figured I had nothing to lose but time and money, both of which I’d wasted plenty of in the last year trying to determine what was wrong with me.
During my first visit, I spent about an hour and a half talking with Ann-Marie about my symptoms and lifestyle, followed by my first acupuncture session. She also gave me some lifestyle changes to try (more sleep, less caffeine, moderate exercise). By my third acupuncture visit, I felt the symptoms I was feeling literally cut in half. By my sixth visit, I actually felt hope for the future, I could see my life free from pain, lightheadedness and able to think clearly for the first time in over a year.
It is now December of 2008. The head pressure I had is now totally gone, I had my last fainting sensation over two weeks ago, and I only get moderate eye strain at work if I’m staring at the computer screen for too long. During the last three months, I had a few setbacks but was able to attribute these to lack of sleep or excessive stress. I am now starting maintenance acupuncture, which I am positive, will be successful.
I truly can’t imagine where I’d be right now if I didn’t take that first step and try acupuncture. I had put so much trust in western medicine that when it failed to help me, I felt there was nowhere else to turn. I now know that not only does acupuncture work, it’s relatively painless, is a fraction of the cost of western medicine and is a natural way for your body to fix itself without having to take medication.
What is a runner to do if she has a big race coming up soon and her knees are sore and a little swollen? This was the dilemma that I faced 10 days before the BolderBoulder 10K race. I had a goal of doing very well in my age group and I wanted to be as healthy as I could be for the race. I asked some running friends what they thought would work best, and I did these things such as taking some time off from running, icing, etc. Then one runner suggested that I visit Ann-Marie to get some acupuncture done.
I had never done any acupuncture so my worry was what if it made my knees worse. However, this running friend had run well after the treatments so she encouraged me to visit Ann-Marie.
When I explained to Ann-Marie what my goals were and that I had just 10 days, she was eager to help but made sure not to promise anything since she wouldn’t know exactly how my body would respond. She was willing to see me for 4 treatments before the race using e-stim (Electrical Stimulation).
Each treatment I felt a little better. I was thrilled when the day of the race came and I did not experience any pain or swelling while I ran. Thanks to acupuncture I was able to earn 1st place in my age group out of 391 ladies.
I am now visiting Ann-Marie on a stretched out schedule to help my knees as they will get sore at times. I believe that acupuncture helped me feel better on the day of my race. Thanks, Ann-Marie!
My first visit to Ann-Marie was in July of 2008. It was also my first experience with acupuncture. After a move to Loveland, not feeling well, pain though out my body, general fatigue, I had made a visit to my primary care . There was nothing he could do for me, as all test checked out normal.
My son was getting married in September on the east coast. I was feeling so bad I didn’t know how I was going to make the trip for the wedding. Ann-Marie had been recommended to my by another health professional. After an visit in which she took a very through health history. We started my appointments, two visits a week, since there were only five weeks until the wedding and much work to be done. It was amazing how much better I was feeling. When the date came for me to fly east for the wedding, I was going with renewed energy and excitement.
Since that time, I have seen Ann-Marie to me prepare for major surgery and afterward to recover. All the physical and chemical insults to the body by the surgery, the acupuncture has helped me recover.
Acupuncture continues to amaze me! Giving a general feeling of well being, chronic pain decreased, easier to move and more energy. It is definitely a way to take care of myself and improve my quality of life.
Acupuncture is definitely a very important part of my staying healthy.
Thank you for introducing me to Acupuncture. Though I do a lot of energy work through yoga, I found that Acupuncture is a good combination with yoga for well-being. I find the treatments not only relaxing and renewing, but balancing as well. I appreciate your soothing energy when performing Acupuncture. Thank you for taking that sticky coat off my tongue and recommending a once monthly wellness visit.
Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences at times. Many people feel anxious, or nervous, when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision.
I was in my final semester of grad school when the repercussions of working full time, attending school full time, and not maintaining a sense of balance hit me. I had daily bouts of nausea, increased heart rate, and gastric reflux symptoms. This downward spiral made it difficult to concentrate on my goals. I tried traditional medicine, which I am a firm believer in, and felt worse.
Several friends of mine had tried acupuncture so this was where I turned next. Ann Marie’s treatments were just what I needed to finish up the stress binge that I had gotten myself into. After several treatments I began to feel better. I felt calmer, got off prescription meds for GERD, had an improved memory, and was able to take on new challenges without symptoms.
I continue to get acupuncture treatments for maintenance as I do enjoy daily challenges to my own sense of balance and feel this will help long term self-preservation.
I work in the health profession and value the combination of Eastern and Western medicine. I have referred patients, family members, and colleagues and will continue to do so.
Thanks Ann Marie
A few months ago I was in an accident where I fell off my bike and broke my leg. I was told that I would have about a two month recovery period. I heard from a friend that acupuncture would help, not only reduce the swelling, but the pain as well. I heard about Ann-Marie and decided to try it out. At the first appointment she was very kind. She made me feel very comfortable. After the first treatment I noticed a dramatic difference in the swelling, pain, and even the amount of movement in my ankle. This was about a month into the recovery period and I felt as though I would be able to walk in no time. Thank you so much for everything Ann-Marie.
For many years I could only turn my head to a certain point without having pain in my neck/shoulder area. After one acupuncture treatment from Ann Marie, the pain was gone and it has never returned. She also treated and removed pain in my heels. Thank you Ann-Marie-You are amazing.
I had my daughter treated by Ann-Marie for overall health. She was sick much of the time she was at school. Ann-Marie’s treatment kept my daughter so much healthier this year. We will be back.
Ann-Marie, my shoulder is healed. Thank you.
I have had pain in my knees since I was about 12 years of age from running, basketball, ranching, arthritis etc. From the first acupuncture treatment the pain in my knees began to decrease. The “river” sensation running through my leg was very relaxing (Ann-Marie calls is Qi). It has now been five very WONDERFUL months since my knee pain was relieved with acupuncture!!!
I came to “Good Health Acupuncture” as a vital link to managing chronic back pain, fatigue and insomnia. I was searching every avenue to be proactive for my health. Western medicine had left me with a medicine cabinet full of pills and no significant improvement. I began my journey with an alternative M.D. who manages chronic medical problems such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and IBS. The whole philosophy is to support the body’s ability to heal or improve itself. I also incorporated chiropractics and massage therapy. My next step in healing was acupuncture. In four short weeks my back pain became very manageable. I have learned to listen to my body instead of ignoring the obvious signs that I am pushing too hard. I feel less internal tension. As Ann-Marie put it, “You have the gas petal and the brake on at the same time.” I have found the clinic to be a place that gives back to my body what the day takes away from my health and spirit. I am very grateful for Ann-Marie’s expertise as a gifted acupuncturist.
While participating in the 2007 Relay for Life walk, I somehow acquired an injury which caused me to have chronic heel pain. The pain was severe. For the next six months I tried cortisone shots I my heel, as well as using orthotics. I did not feel any relief. I had heard about acupuncture therapy from a friend whose pain was greatly lessened after having acupuncture. I decided to do my own research about acupuncture. I learned that pain relief would not come immediately, but would if given time. Because my job requires me to be on my feet a lot, I was in constant pain. I decided to give acupuncture a try and made an appointment with Ann-Marie Yeager. After a few treatments my heel pain started to decrease. I continued acupuncture once a week for about three months. After that my heel pain totally disappeared and has not returned. As Ann-Marie had recommended, I continued to do stretching exercises at home. The pain still has not returned. It really is nothing short of a miracle! Ann-Marie is a kind and caring acupuncturist, giving the best treatments. I do continue to see Ann-Marie, but definitely NOT for heel pain. I also have restless leg syndrome, depression, allergies and hot flashes. The acupuncture helps relieve my symptoms from those problems as well.
My acupuncture sessions with Ann-Marie began in August 2005. I have osteo-arthritis in my hands and the pain and stiffness had progressively worsened. We started with a weekly session and by the third visit the pain and stiffness had lessened and continues to decrease with her therapy.
Ann-Marie incorporated additional treatments with her acupuncture to find the most effective plan for my personal needs. I see her once a month now for maintenance, which includes a session to discuss any other arthritis issues or concerns I have about my health.
Besides acupuncture, Ann-Marie focuses on the client’s whole health with vitamin therapy and herbal medications. I feel very fortunate to be one of her clients and I look forward to continued good health under her expertise and care.
Thank You Ann-Marie!
I had been experiencing ever worsening facial blushing that caused me to become depressed and not desiring to be in public. I went to a family doctor and dermatologist, both diagnosed me with Rosacea. I was prescribed various medications that caused adverse side-effects and did not relieve my blushing. I had also been experiencing increased sweaty palms. After only a few visits with Ann-Marie, I began to notice a significant decrease in my facial blushing and an almost complete absence of sweaty palms. I have found Ann-Marie to be very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely caring of my physical and mental health. Ann-Marie, thank you so much for helping me get back to my old self, happy and outgoing!
My daughter Kaia, now nine months old, has been receiving treatment from Ann-Marie since she was about 3 months of age. She’s been treated for colic, colds, constipation, diarrhea, teething, a skin rash and immunization side effects. I’ve noticed significant improvements in all areas. To explain a few, Kaia’s bouts of colic decreased in severity and number and she began to sleep through the nights on a more regular basis. I found that Kaia was also able to combat her colds much more quickly in comparison to other children with the same illness. Her immunizations seem to affect her a lot less than when she first began receiving them. Kaia seems to really enjoy her treatments with Ann-Marie and she leaves happy and content. People comment on what a happy baby Kaia is and I attribute a lot of that to Ann-Marie’s care.
Ann-Marie has also treated me for colds, migraines and tension and I too noticed improvements with all. Ann-Marie is a delight to work with, excellent at dealing with children and has been an enormous help to my daughter and myself.
I would like to share with you the experiences that I have had with Ann-Marie Yeager. When I first began treatment with Ann-Marie I had insomnia and very irregular menstrual cycles. Within weeks she had me sleeping 8 hour nights, Hooray! My periods had been off for the last 6 years. Every doctor that I saw during this time had either wanted to put me on birth control pills or just give me a hysterectomy, neither of which I considered to be an option. With the help of Ann-Marie and her knowledge of herbs and acupuncture she was able to get my cycles regulated in just a few short months. Her technique is so gentle, which is critical if you have a fear of needles as I do. I highly recommend Ann-Marie to everyone I know, I have her business cards on me at all times! Don’t leave home without them. Thanks again for all of your help; I am truly indebted to you.
I was reluctant to try acupuncture but had a great experience at Good Health Acupuncture and highly recommend Ann-Marie Yeager’s practice!
I’ve always been curious about acupuncture and Chinese medicine. After an initial consultation with Ann-Marie, I decided to try acupuncture. What a great experience! I now see her regularly and she has helped me immensely. Not only is she helping me, but now my 7 year-old daughter is a client – she absolutely loves Ann-Marie!
After just a few short visits I saw an improvement in a number of areas. I always feel so at ease when I see Ann-Marie. I also appreciate her professionalism and warm personality. Acupuncture is phenomenal and I highly recommend it!
I have had chronic neck pain for years. My pain was an 8 to 10 every night. I have had 4-5 treatments and my pain is a 0 to 2. I am amazed at this. I had been going to the chiropractor for years with some relief but never this much in that short of time. Also, I am impressed with the professionalism of her and her office. She is timely and ready to go every time! Thanks Ann-Marie for everything.
