What Patients Say
I began acupuncture with Jessica Silver as a way to maintain my overall health and wellness throughout my pregnancy. It was my first encounter with acupuncture and quickly became my favorite part of each week. Jessie’s knowledge and experience coupled with her kindness and patience made for an incredible source of healing for my pregnancy symptoms. After only a few short weeks of working with her, I saw improvement in my circulation, digestion, and memory. Most of all – I felt calm and healthy! Thank you, Jessie!
I have a mild case of bipolar. I would suffer from weeks of depression. Then my moods would swing the other direction, sometimes allowing me just 2 hours of sleep per night. Medication helped a bit, but acupuncture provided the most relief. The best acupuncturist I have encountered is Jessica Silver. Not only is she friendly and easy
to talk to, she knows her medicine. She was able to find the spots that made me feel normal again. Jess takes the time to understand how I am feeling during each session and how effective the last treatment was. She then tweaks my treatment as needed.
Thank you very much, Jess!
Jessica has been treating me for 5 months, and I have had tremendous relief from insomnia, indigestion, “warm” flashes and allergies. She is gentle and listens carefully. A very sweet personality. I have had a wonderful experience!
I first went to see Jessica for help with a fertility issue: I was 37, wanted to get pregnant, and had ovarian cysts that were preventing ovulation and resisted treatment by Western approaches. I was immediately taken with Jessica’s easygoing and friendly manner. From the first treatment, she was interested in getting to know me as a whole person. Her treatments were gentle—I left them feeling relaxed and energized, not wiped out as I had after visiting some other TCM practitioners—and she was always sensitive to how a given treatment felt while I was undergoing it. Jessica used a combination of acupuncture, heat lamp, moxibustion, and herbal formulas to help bring my body into balance; about six months after beginning treatment, I became pregnant naturally, without really even trying. Now I am the mom of a happy, healthy 14-month-old son. I attribute this success to Jessica’s knowledge as a practitioner and to her incredible positive attitude, which helped give me faith in my body’s own knowledge and capability.
After two years of futile attempts at handling a newly diagnosed condition of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (steroid-based medications), and after feeling like a leper with poison ivy, I went to Jessica. For the FIRSTTIME, I have lasting relief. Jessica is treating me with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. She’s wonderful! She’s attentive, gentle, and incredibly smart. My skin looks normal and I’m feeling comfortable. I can’t say enough good things here. You have to try her for yourself. You won’t be sorry.
I received acupuncture treatment for respiratory problems from Jessica Silver L.Ac., because the amount of stress I was experiencing was causing asthma and breathing difficulties. Her patient, calming presence made it possible for me, an extremely sensitive person, to receive acupuncture treatment, and the difference it made was incredible! I highly recommend seeing Ms. Silver for treatment.
When I met Jessica Silver, L.Ac., I had been having a tightness in my chest which seemed like a big ball of stress, worry and anxiety stuck there. Her approach was gentle and calming, and the acupuncture treatment made that disturbing presence in my body disappear. After experiencing so much relief from the first problem, I returned to Jessica for treatment of my foot pain which had started 4 months before. After the first treatment it felt 80% better, and by the second treatment the pain was gone. Thanks Jessica – I’m a believer!
I was very nervous about trying acupuncture for the first time (foolishly, I thought it would hurt) but decided to go for it after Jessica was so enthusiastically referred to me. I am thrilled that I did b/c she is AMAZING. I was a totally stressed out, tired, overworked insomniac full of anxiety when I met her. Now, I am much more relaxed, less tense, energized and definitely happier. Jess is quite gentle, professional, and very, very effective. The positive results are noticeable – inside and out!!!
I started acupuncture with Jessica Silver, L.Ac. in December 2007. My husband and I wanted to avoid fertility medications but were unable to conceive after a year of trying. I was not getting my period at all, and was diagnosed 3 years ago with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and hypothalamic amenorrhea. Jessica was great; she really put my mind at ease. After about 10 weekly acupuncture sessions, herbs, and some dietary changes, I became pregnant in 3.5 months! We weren’t expecting it to happen so fast but my husband and I are really looking forward to meeting our new baby in November!
I had an ACL reconstruction surgery on my knee which resulted in traumatic arthritis. Not wanting to forever depend on anti-inflammatory drugs, I tried acupuncture. I had two sessions with Jessica Silver and what a difference! I now have full range of motion and the knee is great. Even the cold weather doesn’t bother me. I am definitely a satisfied patient and would recommend her completely.
