Betty McDonald, the operator and therapist at The Wellness Place, is a wonderful and very caring individual. I was referred to Betty and The Wellness Place a little over a year ago by the workers compensation doctors for severe pain relief and relaxation through acupuncture.
My original treatment schedule was two visits a week for 6 weeks. The pain relief was almost immediate and I discontinued oral pain relievers within the first month of visiting Betty.
Once the original 6 week treatment was completed, she suggested many lifestyle changes to be included in my Wellness Journey. We have worked on changing my diet to a more plant-based menu and have included daily vitamins and supplements.
With the help of Betty and her lifestyle suggestions I have lost over 50 lbs and my blood pressure cholesterol and more importantly, my blood sugar is now in the normal range. I cannot thank Betty enough for her passion and making me feel great again. Thank you Betty for everything you do.\n
I have two children that were treated by Betty. One son suffered from ear infections to the extent that he had to get ear tube surgery twice by an ENT. After the second pair of ear tubes I looked for an alternative to traditional Western medicine. I came to Betty and she treated my son with natural supplements. It helped keep him away from additional ear tubes and ear infections. The other son was struggling with bronchitis multiple times a year. Again through supplements, Betty was able to help him strengthen his immune system and reduce the outbreaks. She is very helpful and knowledgeable. I am grateful for the attention she has given my children and for teaching me the benefits of alternative medicine.
A BEAUTIFUL COMPLIMENT
Very caring and compassionate \nGenuinely concerned about the patients health and how she may try to help him/her.\nGentle touch
I have experienced back pain for at least 35 years. I have had several back surgeries and procedures which literally did nothing for the pain. I was on massive doses of Oxicontin and finally Morphine which was driving me crazy.
My chiropractor asked me if I had ever tried acupuncture. I was skeptical but I was in so much pain I knew I had to at least try it once. I called Betty McDonald and was given an appointment the same day. She placed her needles all over my back and let me lay there for about 40 minutes. I got up and 99% of my pain was GONE! I have continued with her treatments 1 day a week and the pain hasn't come back! I am happy to report I no longer take any pain meds which i'm sure has taken it's toll on me after all these years. This lady has been a God send for me! Oh, one more thing, her prices are so reasonable anyone should be able to afford her treatments! Thank you so much Betty for giving me some quality of life back! PS for those of you considering surgery, save yourself a lot of misery and just try her!
Tired Mom with Hormonal Imbalance
When I first started seeing Betty I was tired all the time. I am 31 years old, work a full-time job, I'm a mommy to a very active 3-year-old and a wife. Betty was the first person to tell me I shouldn't be this tired being so young even with a toddler.
I had no energy to work out and would nap almost every weekend. She started me on the progesterone cream that I've been taking for about 6 months now, between the cream and monthly acupuncture sessions,
I have more energy now then probably before having my daughter - I absolutely love it. I have energy to work out again and very rarely nap. When I stop the cream to allow for my period, I can not wait to start it back up again. I just feel so normal. Thank you Betty. MT
I should start by saying that I am 17 yrs old, and in High School. I was injured during a football game and was seeking help. My parents found Betty online. Although I was unsure about Acupuncture I was willing to try anything. Glad I did.
\nNot only did Betty make me feel comfortable and explain every step to me she went beyond what my expectations were. She researched my injury and even offered services beyond acupuncture, she treated me with Frequency Therapy.
\nShe made every step to my recovery an easy and peaceful one. As much as I was nervous and unsure, I enjoyed speaking and gaining knowledge from her. She really cares, and I appreciate that! \nI would highly recommend her to anyone seeking treatment..
NAUSEA IN PREGNANCY
I am first generation Vietnamese-American and it was a no brainer that I would get acupuncture for my morning sickness when I found out I was pregnant. I'm 30 and in my first trimester with my first baby. This was not my first experience as I have been treated for over use syndrome in my wrists, sinus headaches, and bunion foot problems from other places throughout my life. I found Betty through my insurance's website and after four rounds of treatment, my constant all day and night morning sickness has been reduced down to only occasionally feeling nasesous when my stomach is empty and I need to eat. Crackers, ginger tea, and all the other advice I was given to help ease my morning sickness did not work. Acupuncture works for me and my holistic lifestyle. Betty is very sweet and is a wealth of knowledge. She cares and asks in depth questions to figure out what's going on and what's the best way to help. The weather started changing so she treated me for my sinuses and morning sickness in the same appointment. I will continue to see Betty as new ailments arise.
CONSTIPATION, HEART AND NEUROLOGICAL ISSUES
I met Betty McDonald at 60 years of age. I was suffering from chronic low back and was referred for Acupuncture Therapy. Through our association, Betty shared information on Juicing. I successfully went on a 60 day juice fast and lost over 30 pounds. I found myself enjoying an overall sense of well being from this fast. My back improved. Surprisingly, I found that I had the benefit of improving my life long struggle with Chronic Constipation. I began to sleep more soundly as well. My lab results show a great improvement in my Lipid profile, Electrolytes, and Vitamin levels. My Internist and Neurologist are very pleased with my results, and encourage me to continue. I intermittently go on shorter fasts, and will undoubtedly, include fresh raw fruit and vegetable juice in my diet for years to come.
My BATTLE WITH IC
I was at wit's end with IC never getting better, always being told there was no infection, test after test.
Betty asked me different questions and told me the cause of my IC could be somewhere else that no one had bothered to look.
Long story short, within 6 months under her care, I have no more pain or burning. I only wish the doctors would have done this years ago.
I will say that it takes true commitment to follow her plan but it works. I had to make some lifestyle changes but it was worth it.
