As a Mom my first obligation is to keep our children safe, the second is to make sure they are happy and healthy. With a child on the spectrum this can sometimes be difficult and is certainly a balancing act, with a tween it is also difficult and when both of these collide in one child it can feel overwhelming not only for the parent but for the child as well.
In looking for a treatment that would help our daughter I sought outside the pharmaceutical box and turned to acupuncture, let me say right here that having worked in the medical field I am not opposed to pharmaceutical treatment but that it was not something that was appropriate for this situation. Our daughter was having issues with sleeping, nightmares, irritability, tiny frustrations became major issues and other symptoms. I had contemplated acupuncture for a few months and then through a chance meeting learned of Renee Dann and made an appointment for our daughter and am so glad I did.
Ms. Dann's office is calm and welcoming as is her demeanor and she immediately put our daughter and myself at ease, not something often accomplished with spectrum children. She explained to and more importantly listened to our daughter and assured her that things would happen at her own pace, when she was ready and with her permission and that she could stop at any time. It was reassuring to our daughter to know that she was in charge of her own treatment and in control of the situation.
When treatment began, much to my surprise, our daughter relaxed so much that she fell asleep. This relaxation continued at home and she has had much more restful sleep, her mood has been calmer and more pleasant, a school project that would have normally caused her great anxiety and therefore disrupted the whole home, still caused her anxiety but she was able to ask for and accept help so that the project was completed, no one needed a time out and there was still time left to enjoy the day.
I know we will have to continue with follow up treatments to get her body and energy back in sync but I am incredibly grateful to see the improvement so far.
I would recommended that anyone who is looking to acupuncture as a treatment meet with Ms. Dann and wish them the same beneficial results.
A happy daughter and her Mom,
Good morning, Renee,
I wanted to let you know that your treatment last Monday was very effective in eliminating my chest/breathing issues! I’ve not used the inhaler at all and I’ve had no other symptoms!
Have a great day!
Renee's office environment is so calming and peaceful. It is a welcome retreat form the hectic pace of life. I am always amazed at how easily I drift off into a yummy nap during my acupucnture treatment sessions. I wake up feeling renewed and able to face the demands of life. My regular acupuncture sessions are very healing, and within days, I notice my emotional responses are calmer and more appropriate. I am sleep better, my digestion is better, and my annoying aches and pains are less noticable. I highly recommend regular acupucnture treatment to anyone !
Good morning Renee! I just wanted you to know what a true gift you have been given! I have not felt this pain free in several years! God has truly blessed you with this gift. I am telling everyone about you! I hope you don't mind. Thank You!
