acupuncture for irritable bowel syndrome columbia maryland

Acupuncture is a proven method for relieving symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

It has been my utmost pleasure to bring something positive to the lives our patients. I continue to be motivated by kind words like these and am humbled to have been given permission to post the testimonials below.

Sam is incredible. I went to her for my first ever acupuncture treatment–which I was very nervous about because I hate needles. Her calm and soothing demeanor put me at ease immediately. She walked me through what to expect and I could tell right away that that our time together was going to be so much more than her just putting needles in me. Sam takes time during every session to ask questions and really try to understand what is going on with me, physically and emotionally. She listens, she cares and the results of her treatments are proof of her excellent ability.

My lower back pain has lessened, my hair has stopped shedding as much as it was, and I’ve been able to ease the racing thoughts that happen when I’m stressed and overwhelmed. In a word–I feel better as a result of the treatments. It is evident that she loves what she does and is passionate about the well being of her clients. I am truly grateful for the well being that Sam has brought to me through her knowledge, compassion, and expertise with her acupuncture treatments. —B.K.

I originally sought out Acupuncture via Samantha because of her excitement about her work. I didn’t really have any idea what to expect from working with her and didn’t have a super specific goals except that in general, I wanted to feel better and be less stressed. Little did I know that our time together would become SO important in my life!

She began with small steps that I didn’t realize were going to lead to such impactful changes in my outlook and daily habits. Just the thoughtful conversation alone seemed to be doing wonders for me. But once we really got into different needle treatments, I began to feel my whole self change. Through every step of this process, Samantha has been filled with an excitement for her work, patience with me and emanates a peacefulness that is soothing to be with. Her bedside manner is full of ease and care.

I was somewhat skeptical of what Acupuncture could do for me, but through Samantha’s exemplary care, I am now a huge advocate of Acupuncture. It is not just about needles, and I feel Samantha practices that beautifully. —M.L.

When I first came to Sam I was very nervous about “the scary needles” and how my body would react to them. Sam assured me that it is normal to feel this way and put me at ease. Little did I know that these “scary needles” are just what I needed to take back control of my body. I have been suffering from migraines since I was a teenager and have tried everything to relieve the pain. Through my treatments with Sam, I learned that there were many reasons I need to listen to my body and take care of my body. I was able to relax a bit and focus on me and what I need rather than what everyone else needs. Acupuncture became a full body therapy and evoked some emotions that I had kept deep down in my body. With Sam’s kind words and gentle touch I was able to release those emotions and feel okay with that.

I started feeling more confident and left a job that I hated for 7 years! I started to understand where my love relationship was headed and gained control of that. Although I still do get migraines, they do not occur as often and most of the time I know what the culprit was instead of the hopelessness I used to feel. Sam is such a kind, positive spirit who I would greatly recommend to anyone who is struggling with pain management, depressing and finding peace within themselves. I am very grateful for Sam and all of the positive changes I have made in my life since meeting her and hope to continue to evolve into this wonderful woman that I have discovered. —B.W.

I’ve been receiving acupuncture from Sam for nearly two years and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. She is a warm, compassionate, healing presence. Her treatments are effective and tailored specifically to address my unique needs. She is incredibly knowledgeable and I feel more grounded and peaceful after each appointment. She is so thoughtful with the way she practices and I can’t say enough about how much I enjoy my acupuncture appointments. —K.H.

I came to Sam as a skeptical patient that was dealing with ailments both physically and mentally. She was able to reassure me and get me to discuss some very personal thoughts and issues I was dealing with by being so very empathetic and compassionate. I was truly able to open up to her because of this caring demeanor that she has, which helped us create an incredibly curative environment. This all happened before any needles were introduced so I knew that it would be a great experience. After each treatment, I get a feeling of calm and almost a hypersensitivity to the surrounding world, which leads to me noticing and seeing more of the beauty around me. Sam has been able to help with some pain that I was having and I’ll be relying on her to do the same in the future. She is always focused and relaxed with a calm aura / healing presence as she is using the needles, which puts me at ease about the whole process. —J.S.
