Testimonials

I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from Toby for the past 4 years. Without a doubt, acupuncture has helped me during times of depression and anxiety, other illness, and pregnancy. The treatments themselves feel good and provide the right complement to other types of holistic support, as well as Western medicine. Not to mention, the energy within the clinic and from Toby offers healing and comfort. I always leave feeling better than when I walked in! --S.P.
I’ve been receiving acupuncture treatments at Triangle Acupuncture Clinic for the past year to help relieve side effects of chemotherapy treatment for cancer. During my first appointment and with the insertion of the very first needle, I was shocked to discover how effectively acupuncture immediately relieved my feelings of extreme anxiety. At that moment I was hooked. Over the past year, not only has it helped relieve the side effects of chemotherapy but acupuncture helped me quickly rebound after two cancer-related surgeries; relieved sinus pressure and incredibly, brought an immediate end to my nightly 4 trips to the bathroom. I am elated to have practically breezed through a year of cancer treatment full of energy and with no problems or illness. Even more, I love my new sense of calm as I now handle daily stressors with ease. The effects of acupuncture on my anxiety and nervousness have been increasingly long term. I’m a new person thanks to acupuncture. I send a heartfelt “Thank You” to all the acupuncturists at Triangle Acupuncture. -- D.P.
In addition to pain relief, after a regular schedule of acupuncture treatments my entire health has greatly improved. -- E.F.

During the incredible stress of my 4th, and last, IVF cycle I began acupuncture treatments at Triangle Acupuncture Clinic. The relaxation I felt was immediate and transformed the feelings of absolute pressure and anxiety into a much more comfortable state of confidence and peace. I wish I had used acupuncture with my prior cycles! -- K.G.
During both of my pregnancies, I lived for my acupuncture sessions. At first to control the horrible nausea and then later to ease the discomfort of my changing body. By the end, my acupuncture appointments were the only place where I could get a truly restful nap! -- A.S.
Kolleen truly listened and tuned into my two year olds needs. He felt completely comfortable with her fun, child-friendly manner. The acupressure, massage and treatment plan made a huge difference in decreasing his respiratory issues. We were truly grateful to have found such a holistic practitioner. -- T.N.
When I first came to Triangle Acupuncture, I was suffering from migraines at least 4 times a month. My life was almost unbearable and the pain was just too much to bear. I was willing to try anything to get these migraines under control, and I hated my rescue medications because of the side affects. I now rarely suffer from migraines, in fact I cannot think of the last one I had. Even through recent stressful times, I have not gotten a migraine. I recently told Toby, I cannot imagine going back to my life as it had been previously. I cannot go back to that old way of living, I was barely surviving. The changes I experienced from acupuncture did not happen overnight, but occurred gradually over time. It seemed that at one point I just realized I wasn’t in pain anymore. I do have to keep up with my therapy, and be diligent about treating my body right, but it is worth it. There is nothing better than living my life without pain and without the fear of pain. I can’t thank Toby and Chris Helmstetter enough, it has truly changed my life. .--A.M.
Struggling with infertility issues is a very isolating experience. Katherine and the practitioners at Triangle Acupuncture Clinic helped me refocus my energy on healthy and easy changes to make that really influenced my last IVF cycle in a positive way. I couldn’t imagine life without my son and I thank them very much for their care during such a difficult time. -- anonymous
I decided to try acupuncture after it was recommended to me by a close friend. I have battled depressive episodes on and off for the past 15 years and have been on and off antidepressants When I met Kolleen, I struggled with feelings of anxiety, restlessness, sadness, apathy, and difficulty sleeping. Although I was not quite sure what to expect, I approached acupuncture with an open mind because I was determined to help myself without using antidepressants. I began acupuncure treatments in June and gradually noticed a shift in my thoughts and feelings over the next several months. Kolleen’s warmth, compassion, and dedication paved the way for this positive shift. For me, it is difficult to separate the practitioner (Kolleen) from the practice (the actual application of the needles). I truly feel that the integration of the two is what made my overall experience so powerful and positive. Kolleen&rsqou;s calm demeanor and patience helped quiet my restless mind. I remember feeling amazed at how relaxed and peaceful I felt after treatments. While I initially sought treatment for depression and its sequelae, we also looked at other issues (TMJ, uveitis, and fertility) as time went on. I believe that working on and addressing the big picture allowed me to “let go” and achieve some balance. I was extremely excited to find out I was pregnant after trying for ~4 months. Kolleen always goes above and beyond to answer my questions and look for alternatives if something doesn’t seem to be working. After my treatment sessions, I slept better, had more energy, and felt less anxious and more peaceful. -- D.P.

I began my journey with acupuncture with extreme pain in my shoulders and numbness and tingling in my hands. I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome issues that had developed over the past few years. From the very beginning of acupuncture treatments with Kolleen, I felt I was working with a true professional. Kolleen was able to provide immediate pain relief. In addition to acupuncture, she offered suggestions such as yoga exercises and herbal therapy which were very helpful. Through a regular schedule of acupuncture my entire health has greatly improved. Kolleen is personable, professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and very competent in providing acupuncture treatments for a variety of issues. Thank you!!!

Triangle Acupuncture has made a tremendous difference in my life. When I started my treatments I was in pain just walking across a room. Now I am feeling much better. I can travel again, walk the mall, do the flea market and the farmers market. I am forever grateful for their time, talent and personal care. What a wonderful difference acupuncture has made in my life! -- P.L.
