“Michelle’s treatments have a profound impact on my physical well-being. I have always suffered from stomach pains, which have noticeably weakened since I began treatment with Michelle. I also periodically suffer from lower back pain. I experienced this hurt in early September of this year; however I was completely free of pain within 24 hours of Michelle treating me. It is perhaps Michelle’s genuine interest in my physical health as well as in my emotional well-being which most consistently impresses me. She has an open ear and heart for all my concerns.”
"Michelle has given me the gift of her steady presence, her desire to delve and understand and her consistent willingness to collect new information and use it in supporting my healing process…She has helped me shift my life story of everyone else first, this is a huge and necessary shift for me and I am most grateful to Michelle for tenderly and strongly supporting me. I have been very fortunate to have had acupuncture from a variety of highly trained and seasoned masters of this fine art. I believe that my experience with Michelle has been extraordinarily valuable to me."
“Michelle Gellis has been my Acupuncturist since February 2004. Honestly, I was skeptical about acupuncture at first, I shouldn’t have been. The benefits I have received from acupuncture have been numerous, benefits that I never even imagined. Many symptoms improved such as the relief of chronic pain in the foot I had broken four years ago, and my cholesterol levels dropped significantly, in addition, sores on my tongue cleared up. Most importantly has been my overall ability to face life more calmly.”
“I began treatments with Michelle Gellis after exhausting conventional Western medicine options to treat chronic severe ulcers in my mouth. The benefits I have received from Michelle’s treatments are amazing and go far beyond the relief I gotten for my mouth. I have become much more aware of my body and what it “tells me”. I pay attention to my sleep habits, appetite, digestive function, body temperature etc with an awareness I did not previously have. For years I had taken Trazadone as a sleep aid. Once I began acupuncture my sleep improved almost immediately to the point that I now sleep easily, all night long and wake rested with no drugs. I have received many benefits which will stay with me for the rest of my life.”
“When I contracted Bell’s Palsy, first, I went to my doctor and was put on a 6 day regimen of cortisone, to help to reduce the inflammation of the cranial nerve. It was not until a week later, after I contacted Michelle Gellis, my acupuncturist, and had a treatment, that I experienced any improvement in my condition. The improvement was dramatic in lessening of the facial paralysis. Within a 3 week period, my facial paralysis was improved to a point, that people could not tell that I had been suffering with the condition. Originally, being told that my condition could last somewhere between 6 weeks, on the mild side, and 6 months, I was thrilled, when the regimen of treatments that Michelle performed, had helped my condition so dramatically”.
“I contacted Michelle for my ptosis condition (one eyelid sat lower than the other) because my wedding was approaching, I was desperate and even considering surgery, but after just a few sessions my eyelids were even. I was so grateful my eyelids were even for my special day-and so thankful that I did not have to go the invasive route, along with its expense and recovery time. Michelle is very skilled with her needles and definitely master of her craft.”
"Since I've started the treatments with Michelle for my TMJ and related migraines, I have felt great improvement. I actually have not had one migraine since I started and the overall pain in my jaw has decreased significantly. I have not been able to even chew anything on the right side of my mouth for the past few years and I am now starting to retrain myself to chew on both sides. The Improvement has been amazing, much better than I had hoped for."
