Michael,

I just learned my FSH # was 23.2 on Dec 22 - that's a 15 point drop from my highest recorded level in August. :) Thought you'd like to know as well.

Thank you,
Ida

I started seeing Michael Bennett, L.Ac. from Metropolitan Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine after experiencing problems with my menstrual cycle and PMS symptoms. I was diagnosed with a hormonal imbalance and started to see irregularities with the number of days between cycles, the length of my menstruation, increased cramping, severe mood swings and emotional instability for more than 9 months.

I wasn??t sure if acupuncture would work, but wanted to try an alternative method to work towards regulating my menstrual cycle and bring my hormones back into balance. I was opposed to taking hormone replacement medication as recommended by my Gynecologist and I wanted relief from the physiological and psychological stress it was causing me.

Within weeks, my menstrual cycle went back to 28 days, my cramping was minimal and my PMS symptoms stabilized. I was overwhelmed with the results and have continued to see further results with managing my stress and weight issues as a direct result of acupuncture.

Now that I have seen consistent results, I have become a firm believer and advocate for acupuncture and would highly recommend Michael Bennett, L.Ac. for the treatment of a multitude of conditions.

i am a working actress and musician and i spend a lot of time on the road. this means i do a lot of carrying heavy bags, equipment and assorted instruments. I came to metropolitan acupuncture on the recommendation of my massage therapist, to find relief for a back and hip problem that had been bothering me for more than a year. i was told by my therapist that the doctor there is truly interested in his patients and does a thorough job of assessment of your malady each time at every visit, really spending time with you. well, this couldn't be more true. i have seen a number of acupuncturists in new york city, been assessed, then hurried in and out with little to no interaction. from the first visit, i felt very comfortable and i got the impression that michael really cared about getting me well!... he follows through and made sure i stayed with the treatment. and, i am happy to report, that after my third session, i had my first pain free day in more than a year. apparently the "traffic jam" in my back was clearing up and the stiffness in my hip and leg was feeling a lot better. now, weeks after my treatment was completed, i am still feeling great and even started ballroom dancing classes! thank you, metropolitan acupuncture!

My name is Bruna and I was treated by Michael Bennett at Metropolitan Acupuncture to increase my chances of conception in conjunction with IVF. For the last five years I tried to get pregnant but was unsuccessful. I feel that the acupuncture treatment I received from Michael made all the difference this time. Based on my experience, I recommend Michael Bennett for the successful treatment of infertility.?

I have been a patient of Michael for over two years. He has treated me for everything from stress/pain to cold/sinus symptoms and even turned my breech baby. He is a great diagnostician and his treatment room is very relaxing. I highly recommend Michael.??

I am a 39 year old female and I have a history of Crohns disease. I was diagnosed 10 years after a bowel perforation. For the last 10 years I have been battling to control my symptoms which include abdominal pain, burning and frequent loose stool. Although I avoid foods that are known to trigger flare up and have been actively excising. There have been times that seemed that just about anything would bring on a flare. I also started to notice that in the last 6 months they seem to be accruing more frequently due to stress.

I have done acupuncture in the past for other reasons (pain management) and decided to try for my Crohns.

After one session with Michael my symptoms have almost disappeared. My stress level has reduced. So much so that now I??m worried if he did to much of a good job ( ha ha).

I am writing this testimonial in the hopes it may help other Fibromyalgia patients. I am a middle aged woman, and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about ten years ago. I remained under the care of a well respected internal medical doctor with a specialty in Fibromyalgia and had followed all his treatment recommendations, with no success. I tried various medications like Elavil, Neurontin, etc, and was very reluctant to try the newer meds because of the weight gain that usually resulted. I found that Physical Therapy actually made my muscle aches even worse and the pains in my arms, neck and back, made it especially difficult to drive the long distances my job required. I would wake up after "sleeping" for 8 hours, feeling like a MAC truck had run over me. I lived in constant fear that I would have to go on disability because I could not do my job. I asked my doctor if he could recommend any alternative treatment and he advised me to try acupuncture. I went to see Michael Bennett and immediately was impressed by his ability to put me at ease and how much he seemed to know about Fibromyalgia. He said he thought he could help me, but never made any promises. All he asked me to do was to trust him and follow his treatment plan. Initially, I began with treatments three times a week. By the end of the second week, I felt about 70% better. By the end of the first month about 90%. I continued to see him as recommended and I could not believe that there were days when I didn't feel any pain or any fatigue. Eventually, my treatments were reduced to once a week and now I only see him as needed. I feel 100% improved and no longer worry about not being able to work. My life has been given back to me and I am eternally grateful for this caring, skilled, acupuncturist who gave me back my former quality of life. He is a credit to his profession and I recommended that you put your trust in him as I did. You will not be disappointed.
