“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. ~ Thomas A. Edison
Recently I visited Claretha at Jade Path Acupuncture and was shocked at how good it made me feel. Going in, I knew almost nothing about acupuncture, so I didn’t know what to expect. Claretha used methods to help me relieve stress and reenergize my body. After the appointment, I felt more relaxed than I had in months, maybe years. It was similar to how you might feel after a massage, but even better because it also heightens your energy while giving you a sense of peace and tranquility. Moreover, Claretha was always attentive to my needs at each moment, ensuring that I felt comfortable and at ease. She has a warm, welcoming demeanor and I highly recommend her service to anyone who has been suffering from stress (or any of the other ailments she treats.)
I’ve had a debilitating physical issue for the last few years, and I’ve tried several things to alleviate my problem. Major surgery was my next option, but I turned to Claretha at Jade Path Acupuncture first. That decision has been life changing. Claretha has aided my body in healing itself. I’ve regained normalcy in my life, and I am able keep all of my body parts. I am grateful!
It is obvious that Claretha values the interaction with her patients as a key element of the healing powers of Chinese Medicine. She is clearly well-versed in the science of the medicine, negotiating vast amounts of information from the patient’s weekly intakes to form a treatment plan that shifts with the changing needs of the patient. My experience with Claretha was as a warm, sincere, and competent professional who has a precise needling technique and a caring manner that put me at ease. She inspired me to take care of myself on my own and to implement healing principles into my life- not because she pressured me to do so or guilted me into it- she did so by showing me that my health is very important. Her actions and her authenticity in her practice clearly show that Claretha has an investment in my health and well-being. I would recommend (and have recommended) Claretha highly to my loved ones or anyone looking for a competent and caring acupuncturist. You will be in very good hands.
I started seeing Claretha a little under a year ago for help with chronic urticaria (hives). I tried every pill under the sun and nothing was helping. In fact, things were getting worse. It seemed like everyone I saw wanted to mask my symptoms and didn’t care to treat the underlying problem, until I met Claretha. Claretha cares just as much as I do about curing my condition. She listens to me and my body. After a few acupuncture treatments and taking herbs regularly, I am finally on track to becoming healthy again. I never thought I could get to where I am today. Although I am not 100% hive-free, I know that if I continue down this path I will get there!
I’ve been getting regular acupuncture treatments for the past 2 years, and in the last 6 months seeing Claretha. After seeing many other talented practitioners, Claretha was the first person to really help me. From my first appointment on, I felt like she understood me and my struggles with migraines. After a few short weeks I started to feel relief in ways no one else had been able to give me. Claretha has a wonderful way about her that made me feel comfortable to share personal and important details about my life that I believe aided in successful treatments. Claretha is extremely warm and friendly while being very professional, which I’m sure will take her very far in her career!
I was curious about acupuncture in general and had some neck issues that hadn’t resolved with other forms of treatment. I have been plagued with chronic neck pain that causes numbness and a burning sensation. Claretha makes you feel as though everything you tell her is important and is extremely helpful with explanations of why she chooses particular treatment options. My experience was exceptional. She worked her magic and reviewed my health information with me and we came up with plan together. She would check in with me at the beginning of every session, which meant a lot to me. After only a few sessions with Claretha I was having less symptoms and after a few more sessions the symptoms went away, only to resurface when I became stressed out. She also educated me on ways to keep myself warm from the inside out. I thought I was making good food choices, turns out just a little tweak to the diet and I was able to work without 4 layers of clothes on! This has been a wonderful experience and I plan on going back whenever I feel off because I have full confidence that Claretha will be able to help me identify and treat the problem. I absolutely have recommended quite a few people to her.
I suffered from chronic pain for years without substantial relief until I tried acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Claretha is a compassionate and gifted healer.
