CHEMOTHERAPY SIDE EFFECTS, CANCER

As a cancer patient, sometimes the fear of treatment and its side effects is one of the first obstacles to tackle.  I was lucky enough to have Emmajean recommended to me shortly after diagnosis and I am sure I would not be doing as well as I am today, if not for her skills. From the commonly known side effects to those that come as a surprise, she was able to alleviate the symptoms, often dramatically, to keep cell counts high enough, and my appetite was great through chemo.  She was also able to assist with the side effects of radiation too.   I 100% recommend Emmajean to anyone interested in a complementary therapy to cancer treatment.

WEIGHT LOSS, OSTEOARTHRITIS

I am a 49 year old girl (okay woman). I have had weight issues my whole life, trying most fad and diet plans throughout my life. I met with Emma to discuss weight loss through acupuncture. Hours after my first visit I saw first hand the results. My energy level is higher, I am no longer cold all the time from my thyroid issue and I feel like my mind is sharper.  In 5 weeks I have lost over 15 pounds – I realize some of this has to do with finding my ‘allergy foods’ and eating healthy choices. But I also believe the acupuncture plays into the complete well-being, having all body functions work together.  In addition to the weight loss, the acupuncture has helped alleviate pain caused from my stage 4 Osteoarthritis. I am able to walk and exercise again! Emma asks specific questions and really listens to help guide you to a healthy you.

ALLERGIES

I have severe allergies. After I started seeing Emma, I didn’t have the whole body reactions that usually send me to the doctor and end up on steroids. I was able to just use the over-the-counter meds, without the discomfort everyone else around me was having due to the high pollens in the air.

ANXIETY, PANIC ATTACKS, NECK & BACK PAIN

I have been a client of Dancing Dragonfly Acupuncture since June 2011. I feel like a new person as a result of these treatments. Emma is very kind, patient and knowledgeable in this field. She has given me strategies, breathing techniques, along with trust and confidence in myself, that enable me to do things I felt anxious towards doing. After an acupuncture session, I get a feeling of the weight of the world being off my shoulders. It’s very cleansing in a way. Initially, I went for an appointment every week. After three months, I began going every two weeks. Now I go every 3-4 weeks. One week, I had a bad head cold and was blowing my nose every ten minutes. I told Emma I was experiencing this and she said she could attend to this issue with my treatment. It was later that evening that I realized I hadn’t been blowing my nose hardly as all! She has relieved neck and back pain as well. My panic attacks are very limited now.

I am a true believer in acupuncture and am ever so grateful that Emma has given me back a part of my life that I couldn’t live due to anxiety episodes.  Every time I overcome a possible anxiety attack, I want to call Emma and thank her!! My world is so much more enjoyable thanks to her…..

WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM , SINUS ISSUES, SPASMS, FOOT DROP

I am a 57 year old female. Before visiting Emma and receiving acupuncture, I had a lot of health issues. Last year alone, I missed 27 days of work, most of which were health related. A strange virus left my right side weak. My right foot dragged, and the left side of my mouth drooled a lot. Since acupuncture, these symptoms are gone, and I don’t trip with that right foot all the time like I used to.

I had an operation on my stomach and esophagus, and a side effect is esophageal spasms. I get them very rarely now.

My immune system is boosted to the point that I have had only 1 sick day this year! My sinuses are clear and I can sleep lying down and don’t get headaches and blocked sinuses.

I was always cold; now my husband has to turn up the heat for himself as I’m warmer. I’m also sleeping better and notice a boost in energy level. I strongly advise anyone with any kind of health issues to try acupuncture with Emma. I have a new lease on life!!!!!

Thanks, Emma!

ANXIETY/DEPRESSION

About 5 years ago I began my journey with acupuncture. It worked great for pain relief of a previously broken foot and then an injured rotator cuff. In September 2009, I had something like a partial seizure while camping. After having extensive tests ran, all of my vital organs were ok….I was referred to a wonderful chiropractor who ran X-rays and confirmed neck subluxation….I continued to have symptoms like anxiety/panic attacks and depression. I made an appointment with Emmajean Rombach.

She talked in great detail with me, checked my tongue and pulses and made her diagnoses. Emma began a very specific acupuncture treatment for my symptoms and gave me some Chinese herbs for my specific condition. Emma also said that if I was not feeling much better within 6 treatments, we weren’t doing the right things.

Within 2 treatments I felt 90% better! Today, almost 2 months later, I continue to improve and feel blessed for the wonderful professional and caring treatments that I have received from Emma.

Of all the care and treatments that I have received in the past, I would HIGHLY recommend Emma as the number 1 professional I’ve been treated by.

PULSE EVALUATION

I highly recommend everyone to sit down and have a conversation with Emma. She can help people in ways they don’t even realize they need it. Emma told a family member to go get his heart checked and when he did, they admitted him and gave him triple bypass the next day!!! He didn’t even know he had a problem and probably would not have gone to get checked if not for Emma’s advice.

She is very passionate about what she does and is an all-around good person. Definitely worth your time to talk to her for a few minutes.

SHOULDER PAIN

My shoulder pain was getting worse. It was starting to affect my quality of life. We all reach that point where you will try anything for relief. That is when I was referred to Emma. I admit I was somewhat of a skeptic about acupuncture but I had reached that point.

After answering a series of questions, Emma starts to put the puzzle together and suggests the treatment method. While relaxing on a table, you barely feel the initial setting of the needles. It is NOT like what you think it feels like. You can actually feel good things happening within your body.

The calmness and pain relief I experienced was amazing. I initially went for pain relief but acupuncture has helped me in ways I never expected. I have a different outlook on nutrition and my overall health.

Emma is very enthusiastic about combining acupuncture and nutrition suggestions to help the body get back in balance. It really does work! Take it from a former skeptic.

HYPOTHYROIDISM

I have been seeing Emma Jean for a little over a month for Hypothyroidism. I have seen greater relief of my symptoms in that month than I did in 7 years of traditional medicine. The herbal and nutritional advice that Emma Jean has given me has been spot on.
At every visit, Emma Jean proves to be a competent and compassionate medical professional. She never tries to ‘sell’ me on anything and works from my comfort level.
Working with Emma Jean has given me back a quality of life that I have been missing the last few years. I highly recommend Dancing Dragonfly Acupuncture .

My Food Rules: EAT FOOD. ENJOY EATING IT!

I get asked all of the time, “What diet do you recommend?” and my answer is, quite simply, I recommend the “EAT FOOD DIET”.  Yep, that’s it. My very Simple Food Rules are 1. EAT FOOD. 2.  ENJOY EATING IT.
So what exactly do I mean by “EAT FOOD”? Well, before you buy, order or eat any food-type product, check out the ingredients list. (If the food doesn’t come in a package or even have an ingredients list, GREAT! That means it’s likely REAL, HONEST-TO-GOD FOOD in it’s original form. EAT IT!) Continue reading
