I highly recommend Ann Rea as an Acupuncturist for treatment of patients of all ages. Here is the story of how Ann helped me through a difficult time in my life: I was an active 25-year-old school teacher in 2009 when I was in a horrible car accident. I suffered neck and back pain as well as excruciating headaches. The medical doctors and physical therapists that I saw were not able to alleviate the constant pain. Over a year, I tried one method of treatment after another but the pain and negative impact on my life continued.
The medical doctors then told me that I should plan to live with the pain for the rest of my life. This is not something you want to hear at the age of 26, especially as this meant I would never be able to live the active life I had led before the accident. As a last resort, I decided to see an Acupuncturist even though I am deathly afraid of needles.
From my first appointment with Ann in August of 2010, she gave me hope that she could help me. She is extremely thorough and I could tell that she cared about my well-being. Since I began acupuncture with her, my pain has diminished greatly. I am able to live the lifestyle I had lived prior to my accident. In addition, at my appointments, she has helped me with other health issues related to allergies, thyroid performance, and normal aliments such as colds and flu. It is truly amazing how much she cares for her patients and makes sure that their whole being is constantly improving.
I cannot speak highly enough of Ann Rea’s abilities as an Acupuncturist. And, she is accommodating in scheduling appointments to meet her patients’ schedules. At each appointment, she asks questions to determine her patient’s status and she carefully listens so she can direct her treatments for the optimum benefit. Finally, she frequently takes classes to develop and grow her skills and knowledge, so that her patients continue to receive the highest level of treatment. She is truly focused and dedicated to her patients and their entire lifestyle.
My first appointment was yesterday and was amazing. Ann sat with me and really listened to what was going on. She was able to formulate a plan and we put it into action right then and there. The :30 minutes or so that I spent on the table was probably the most relaxed I have been in years. The rest of the day was filled with a new pep in my step. Looking forward to continuing this new path to health!
I received significant pain relief and increased energy and mobility. The office is very pleasant and peaceful.
I always have a wonderful experience when I come in for my appointment. I feel like a buffet table… Acupuncture points are different every time… as there as so many points to choose from. I love that you address my current issues and still reamin focused a bit on the beginning issues I had originally cam in for. I appreciate this very much.. as my body heals I feel confident that every time I will improve!! Thanks Doll.. Love you!!
After my first appointment I was able to take a trip from Phoenix to Tucson without back pain. Very impressed with results after one appointment.
I have had the best experience coming to Harmony and Health. I’ve been coming for just under a year and my fibromyalgia pain is under control and I’m off my pain meds. They’ve helped me through anxiety and stress as well. Such a relaxing atmosphere! You can’t go wrong by coming here!
I have dealt with chronic cervical pain for over 7 years. I’m a surgical candidate but not settling for a quick fix. Acupuncture has made me feel better than I have in years and I really never thought that I would feel “normal” again. Emily and her mother are very talented in the skill and I’d recommend them to anyone!
I just wanted to take a minute to say Thank You. It has been over 4 Weeks since Ann treated my 6 Months of Sciatic Pain (2 Sessions). I am thrilled to report that I have not had One flair-up since my last visit. Honestly, I was very skeptical when I made the appointments. You have a believer and a referring patient. I haven’t felt this good in over 6 months.
Thank You and I will be in touch when it flairs – Until then here’s to happy Walking, Sleeping and Sitting. I had forgotten how good Comfort felt.
I began seeing Ann in April of 2014 to treat my facial paralysis, fatigue, vertigo, and disequilibrium associated with Ramasay Hunt Syndrome (RHS). My neurologist told me that the chances of regaining movement in my face were less than the chances of my face remaining paralyzed. In other words, my prognosis was grim and to say I was discouraged is a vast understatement. Anne was very responsive and supportive by introducing me to various acupuncture treatments as well as resources for relaxation and stress reduction. In the spring of this year, I began working with Emily who has been performing an innovative technique on my extremities. She too is very supportive and a positive energy to be around.
Since the onset of my RHS, not only has 85- 90% of my facial function returned, but my vertigo and disequilibrium is resolved. My neurologist is thrilled and I’m incredibly grateful for the dedication these women have shown in my recovery. In addition to stimulating the healing process, my treatments are vital to monitoring my stress levels. Each visit provides me with an opportunity to be more self-aware and mindful of what causes me to feel pressure and anxiety because they take the time to have a conversation regarding how I’m doing and what has changed since my previous session. I always leave feeling centered and relaxed and I’m optimistic that I will continue to progress and experience improvement.
Thank you for your generosity and attentiveness!
I am a competitive weightlifter that is always looking for health professionals that are not only experts in their field. Not only was I looking for experts but also someone that takes a genuine interest in my health and overall improvement in life. I certainly found that with Ann and Emily at Harmony and Health. Their expertise not only resulted in the relief of many aches and pains but also helping me understand what I can be doing to prevent the same issues from happening again in the future. I would recommend Harmony and Health to anyone that is looking for a natural path of recovery and practitioners that are confident and reliable!
