Patient Testimonials

"In addition to providing one of the most soothing environments in the Greater Boston Area, Debra offers an array of treatments that I have found to be incredibly effective and uplifting. Over the last several years, she has treated me for a variety of conditions, both chronic and specific, including sciatica, headaches and sleeplessness. I never once left her office without feeling better. Though I was raised in a very traditional western medicine home, I now find that my first instinct is to turn to Debra and acupuncture for almost every ache and pain. In addition to her many skills as a healer, Debra is also just a wonderful person to be near and that alone is worth the price of admission."

"Although my husband had low sperm count and motility, we both went to see Debra Wood. We were about to begin the process of our second IVF (InVitro Fertilization) cycle with ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection). We were becoming more desperate and less hopeful. Debra's treatments were to prepare me to respond better to the medications and the entire stressful medical procedures. I felt better immediately; the most miraculous result, however, was that when my husband had his next sperm analysis, his sperm count was normal! We decided to try naturally, and realized we didn't even know when the timing was right. Debra became our fertility counselor as well. I am so proud and elated to report that we are now pregnant with our first child! We have so much hope now that we will be able to have the family we had always dreamed of."

"After I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I looked into alternative treatment in addition to conventional methods. I truly credit my work with Debra as part of the reason for my successful battle over breast cancer. Her treatment included acupuncture, nutritional advice, and herbal formulas. I felt confident in her experience and knowledge of holistic medicine. I appreciate that she looks at the whole person when making treatment decisions. Debra is a very passionate person and she has created a very peaceful space. I continue to see Debra as part of my overall healthy lifestyle. Acupuncture is so's better than a massage!"

"Debra cured spasms and ailments that have been with me for years, and supplied me with herbs and nutritional supplements that fit my body. She provides excellent acupuncture treatments in a soothing and comfortable environment that leave you with a feeling of natural euphoria when you leave... and a noticeable change in whatever brought you there.
As well as close attention to your personal needs, a service that is a dying art in our culture... it is good to know there are still some people out there that do their jobs with that standard of integrity. Thank you so much, Debra!"

"Debra Wood's well rounded knowledge and talents in nutrition, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture make her a perfectly suited health care professional for my needs. First off, I was very skeptical about the whole acupuncture thing. She has such a delicate and precise technique. You rarely feel ANYTHING!! Except of course energized after the session. More often than not, besides treating and alleviating the aches and pains, I leave with a HIGH -- feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. I've also availed myself of her knowledge of nutrition and Chinese herbs. I now eat very well balanced (she turned me on to excellent books and ideas that are not fads. Just great and fantastic). Several of her cold remedies and juice drinks are excellent and most effective. Good energy, knowledge, effectiveness, pleasant, accessible and flexible to the client's needs--- -that about sums up Debra Wood."

"My family and I have seen Debra Wood since 1999 and during this time she has treated us for a variety of health issues, both emotional and physical. Health and well being is what we receive in results from Debra. Debra Wood's accupuncture treatments are the most effective and lasting treatments I have had. Debra's sensitivity and skill are paired well with her practice of Chinese Medicine."

"Before I came to Debra, I suffered from extreme menstrual symptoms-- such as vice-grip headaches, excessive bleeding, overly emotional, an overall fogginess, etc. After about four weeks under her care, I began to slowly see the once-debilitating symptoms begin to subside. That was a year and a half ago. Since then, I have been able to apply acupuncture and herbal medicine to all areas of my life, including depression, anxiety, a concussion from a random accident, even the common cold. I'm generally someone who is not comfortable with doctors, but Debra is warm, extremely compassionate and genuinely cares about my health and well being. She's extremely passionate about what she does, and continuously strives to stay abreast of the most current methods. I have seen many results in the last year, and now consider acupuncture, herbal medicine and Debra Wood a part of taking great care of myself on a regular basis."

"Debra Wood is a compassionate practitioner who utilizes her vast knowledge of acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition to encourage healing and maintain physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. A visit to her office is a sensory experience. She has created an environment that immediately makes people feel comfortable - with water flowing from a fountain, soft scents of essential oil floating in the air, and music that is relaxing yet stirs the imagination. Anyone will emerge from a treatment with Debra feeling soothed and energized."
