“Got rid of headache & less stressed & less anxiety.”

[Paraphrased from a patient who had just had a tooth pulled in the Tsu Chi dental clinic: since the acupuncture treatment following dentistry, the pain is less. Feel more relaxed. Fell asleep twice during treatment.]

“Thanks for coming out to help and keep up the Great work – See you again!”

“I have been very depressed and stressed and I am totally relaxed. I would love to have this treatment weekly or at least monthly.”

“Was very stressed and anxious about things more relaxed and calm.”

“Less stress and more energy”

“I have never tried this before It was very helpful I would like to know what acupuncture would do for my back”

“More comfortable chair to sit in while being acupuncture.”

“Wow! Can’t wait to become ‘a regular’ First time since 6/12 my neck and shoulders aren’t like iron !! [incorporated into a sort of smiley face] Thanx CR Morrissey 7/6/008”

“I felt very good. I had a terrible Headache & Stiff neck. The Pain is gone. I would like to continue with This. I’m going to look for a doctor here that does that.”

“It’d probably be more comfortable if people weren’t looking across at one another. [smiley face]

A policeman at a shelter remarked, a few days after his only treatment, that the severity of his migraines had been cut in half.
