When nature created a woman’s body, nature also created natural ways to care for and maintain a woman’s health.

Here we have PMS and associated emotional ups and downs and cramps that can happen for an entire week or more every month.

Testimonials for Treating Women's Health with Acupuncture & Tradtional Chinese Medicine

Treating Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) with Acupuncture:

Claudia, Age 36: “When I went to my acupuncturist, Dr. John Barrett, it was for difficult menstrual cycles. I was having severe cramps and vomiting. My sexual energy was unfocused and erratic. Years ago I had terminated a pregnancy and since then had developed these horrible menstrual periods. I didn’t see the connection until after my treatments with Dr. Barrett. He always greeted me with a warm smile. His nonjudgmental presence allowed me to open up about this issue and others while embracing my healing. I felt my way through the process not really knowing what was happening internally because my focus was on less painful periods. He remained sensitive during my treatment and afterwards. I remember feeling like tons of bricks were lifted off me. A few months after my treatment my cramps got better and I became pregnant which was an amazing gift that I didn’t know was coming. I embraced it with joy. I feel that the treatments he did on me balanced me physically and emotionally while unblocking my creativity. Even my complexion improved, and the breakouts I had for years stopped completely. My female creative energy is flowing more freely. I thank Dr. Barrett profoundly because I believe the work he does has a deeper foundation than the obvious, and the benefits are endless.”

Treating Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) with Acupuncture:

Shirley, Age 32: “

I first went to see Dr. Barrett after taking antibiotics for a week in order to fight the flu. My chief complaint was residual symptoms from the flu that the antibiotics did not seem to help. These were fatigue and difficulty breathing. I could not believe that after one treatment both symptoms were permanently relieved. My second visit to Dr. Barrett was due to lower back pain which I have experienced off and on ever since my pregnancy eight years ago. After one massage my symptoms were permanently relieved.My third treatment from Dr. Barrett was due to a urinary track infection with blood in my urine and excessive bleeding during menstruation. Normally I would have chosen antibiotics as a preferred treatment, however, he assured me of a reliable herbal solution to be taken in pill form. After day one, the blood stopped in my urine, and after three days the infection had disappeared as well. Additionally, my next menstrual period had decreased from my usual seven days with two days of heavy bleeding down to four days with no heavy bleeding. During my third treatment Dr. Barrett noticed a discoloration of my skin due to a bruise which never completely healed. I told him that I bruised easily. For this he prescribed an herbal formula which I took for three weeks. During that time the discoloration which I had for over three-years disappeared and I have not noticed any further bruising. I also saw Dr. Barrett for an acute shoulder injury from strenuous exercise. The injury had hurt so badly, I could not focus on my work. After one treatment from Dr. Barrett the pain had decreased 75% and he assured me it would be gone the next day…and it was. Dr. Barrett has convinced me that TOM is very effective in so many ways that I never imagined possible. Instead of immediately seeing an MD, I prefer to see Dr. Barrett first as my primary care physician.

Christina, Age 32: "Dr. Barrett is a wonderful acupuncturist and I would highly recommend him. I have gotten acupuncture treatments for the past ten years in both L.A. and N.Y.C. and I would have to say that Dr. Barrett is one of the best, if not the best acupuncturist that I have had. He has a wonderful bedside manner, is professional and on time, affordable and really gets to the root of what you are dealing with health-wise. I have been a patient for the past 5 years and continue to be. Dr. Barrett has greatly contributed to my overall well-being.”

Kathy, Age 42: "Dr. Barrett is a holistic practitioner who treats the mind, body and spirit through acupuncture, herbs, and advice on nutrition, relaxation, meditation and exercise. It's obvious to me that he really cares about his patients and is devoted to his practice. I have seen him for several issues and each time I learn more about my body and how to have it function in a healthier and happier way. I would and have recommended Dr. Barret to all my friends and co-workers.”

Ty, Age 68: "Most compassionate, understanding and caring professional. He has greatly helped me. Street parking available”
