LG Excellent experience. I feel a lot better, sleep better, no back pain as before I came to visit Dr. Thomas. For one time I'm having a healthy diet and at the same time not feeling hungry. I recommend this treatment to anyone who in the past could not follow a routine because this is completely feasible.
Joellen As retired acupuncturist, I have very high standards and expectations when I seek treatment. Thomas is one of the most skilled and knowledgeable clinicians I have ever met in any specialty. He brings a social understanding of all aspects of oriental medicine and his work, including acupuncture and sophisticated herbal perceptions, as well as hands-on body work. Thomas has helped me with a very painful neck issue, a shoulder problem. Stemming from an old injury, and with re-building my core energy. He has made an enormous difference in my life.
MLU The whole experience is wonderful and the staff is terrific! I
have better circulation in my legs, my arthritis in my foot rarely hurts. I
can't say enough good things about this clinic. Friends have commented that I
look rested and my skin looks wonderful -- great side benefit! I would highly
recommend this professional acupuncture experience. These techniques have been
around for thousands of years for a reason -- It really works!!
I have been too many doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors, but it
wasn't till I came to Thomas Acupuncture that I finally found relief. I was
even able to run a marathon after just 5 weeks of seeing them, and having
pulled my back out. They have also been very helpful in treating my intestinal
issues. I love that they treat the whole body.
After 25+ years of walking incorrectly coupled with long-distance hiking
and a terrible diet, I ended up with severely inflamed and torn hip
tendons. Physical therapy, cortisone shots and prolotherapy helped
but I was still very limited in my mobility. My myo-fascial
pain therapist referred me to Thomas, who immediately insisted on a change
in my diet. Where realtors say “Location, location, location,”
Thomas says “Vegetables, vegetables, vegetables!” He also
noticed during my first appointment that my shoulder blades (and,
therefore, my back) were not level at all, something my internist of 25+
years never even noticed, much less resolved.
After two ½ years I was almost completely healed (and back into hiking, biking
and swimming) when I was in an automobile accident. Thomas has helped me heal
from that and now I’d say we’re into “fine
tuning.” I can absolutely say that Thomas has changed my life health
wise, all for the better. Most important, I feel remarkably healthier and
even hope to get back into horseback riding soon. I also need to applaud
his entire staff as they are always very considerate and sensitive to a
patient’s needs. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Thomas
and his clinic, but come prepared to do your own part in gaining back your
I was having pain and weakness in my knee which was progressively getting
worse and limiting my activities. After one treatment from Thomas, my knee
was 100% better - no more pain. At his request I am also adjusting my
diet which is giving me more energy and no more body aches due to aging. I
have just started treatment on my face for aging skin and notice the skin
is firmer and a more even skin tone after just 2 treatments. I highly
recommend Thomas and his wonderful staff.
Thomas and his staff are by far the best acupuncturist I've been to. I
drive 100 miles to see Thomas on a weekly basis. He has helped me
through some very difficult physical problems (3 back surgeries) and it is
clear he really cares. His staff is warm and friendly as well as
completely caring to me. I know other people who come to him and we agree he is
a miracle worker.
I went to Dr. Thomas for a frozen shoulder after my orthopedist suggested
the only remaining option was surgery. As a last resort I booked five
treatments with Dr. Thomas and felt immediate relief after the first
treatment. I have now completed my third and 99% of the pain is gone. I
am going to complete the final two treatments to see if we can acheive a
100% level, however I am very pleased with the results. I have never done
acupuncture before this but will most certainly include it as an option
for future medical decisions. His price was very reasonable and his
office is very cordial and efficient. I suggest him highly.
Thomas Acupuncture has given me a better quality of life. I was suffering
chronic back pain and going through lots of changes in my body due
to menopause. Thomas Acupuncture & Herbs have helped so much, my back
pain is much better. I have learned how much herbs and nutrition affect
your body. The entire staff are wonderful and very knowledgeable as well.
I hope to always be able to continue and learn more about treatment that
doesn't involve taking drugs and is much more natural, healthy way to heal
the body. I love acupuncture! C. Benedict
Thomas has resolved several of my medical issues.
1.) I no longer need spinal injections.
2.) My chronic neck problems are kept in check.
3.) Reflux and intestinal issues are lessened because of Thomas's treatment.
4.) Does a good job with sinuses.
I appreciate the fact that he also has a background in physical therapy.
Juderica Dias My husband has had
a slip disc problem for over a decade, and in
March 2011, he was ready to go in for surgery. But by divine
intervention, we were referred to Dr. Thomas. We called his office
early Saturday morning and was given an appointment almost immediately for
that very morning. That itself was a miracle, considering most
doctors don't work Saturdays, nor do you get an appointment asap. We
reached his office, and after a total of 45 minutes of treatment, my
husband began to walk more normally. He didn't need any help, nor
did he need a walker. He then saw Dr. Thomas twice a week, for a couple
of months, and then tapered it off to once a week, (the best part was that
he began to improve after every visit). It's been two years now, and
he rarely has a slip disc episode. We are very pleased with the
outcome. A year later (2012), I decided to give the treatment a try
for my own health problems. While I haven't seen dramatic changes, I
feel stronger, and have a better grip of what is going on inside my
body. Dr. Thomas is an extremely smart, and kind doctor with a
wonderful sense of humor. His staff are very friendly and
professional. I look forward to my visits, and a cure for my health
problems. Sam Chung
I have been very satisfy with Thomas Acupuncture for past 5 years. My disc has
been cured by acupuncture and I am very healthier because of Thomas Acupuncture
I've had chronic back pain that's gotten worse over the last several years,
and thought it was just a natural progression that I unfortunately just
had to live with. Then, late last year thru MRI, it was discovered
that my pain was due to denegerative discs in 2 of my vertebrae. I
was devastated by this, especailly because of my relatively young age of
early 40's! Fortunately, thru Dr Seo's treatment, not only is my
pain noticeably controlled, but he also taught me dietrary methods to
significantly reduce overall inflammatory responses of my body to meats
& poultry. By eating just vegetables and seafood, devoid of most
animal protein, my body as a whole just feels better, with less back
pain, and along the way I also lost 8 lbs in the last couple months.
Speaking of hitting 3 birds with one stone!
I came to Thomas acupuncture for knee pain; general overall body aches;
and diabetes. The results have been better than I imagined. I can walk
up stairs with no pain and combined with Thomas's recommendations of a
better diet (lots of veggies and less red meat!!) my body aches have
disappeared. As for my diabetes, my A1C has gone down. I feel much better
these day thanks to Thomas and his wonderful staff.
I can't find enough words to describe my wonderful experience with Dr.
Thomas and the clinic staff. Dr. Thomas relieved me of my knee
pain something that steroid treatment wasn't able to do. I can now
function with ease. Min, Tori, Katie and Autumn are excellent and lovable
staff. the clinic is very clean, neat and super relaxing. I highly recommend
Dr. Thomas and his staff and ACUPUNCTURE!
When allopathic medicine had nothing else to offer, Dr. Thomas provides a
solution to reduce or eliminate pain. I highly recommend his treatment.
Thomas and his team have really helped me - not just my back - but also my
entire body and wellness. I love coming here and going off when the needles are
Dr. Thomas and his office crew are very knowledgeable and polite. The
treatment helped me to cope with knee pain, shoulder pain and dealing with
stress pain. The advice for balancing proper foods was beneficial also.
My pain problem experienced was my left shoulder & neck. Acupuncture
has loosend & gave mobility back& shoulder and neck. In addition,
coaching on diet and life style has increased by energy level.
I have had arthritis in most of my major joints for many years. Thomas is able
to make observations and help relieve pain in my knees and lower back.
My experience with Thomas Acupuncture & Herbs have been very satisfactory
so far. I have chronic neck pain which dates back to late 90's, and I have
tried all sorts of treatment, but none worked. Pain is still there, though
after treatment at this facility, my neck movement improved, and feels less
pain than usual. Also, the way they treat my pain was somewhat different from
others as they try to correct not only the area where I have pain, but the
entire body. I feel that this would benefit me more in the future. Maybe with more
visit in this facility, my neck pain could finally be gone.
It is reassuring to get a whole-body assessment to treat illness and pain.
Min's back and neck treatment is great relief to my body that spends too
many hours sitting at a computer. Thomas and the staff are very
professional and very considerate.
Since coming to Thomas, I feel much better-little or no pain and more energy.
Plus my skin is the best it's been in years!!:)
Thomas and his staff helped me overcome constant fatigue and pain in my neck
and lower back. I feel great and have much more energy now. The setting is
very clean, professional, and relaxing. Thank you Thomas!
Physically - pain management wise very excellent. my momentum while walking is
much improved. no limping and pain while walking.
Emotionally - I am very much more emotionally intelligent. I can again
project positive outlook to everything I do once more. My life style, my professional
life and all my community service.
Joseph When I first started seeing Thomas, I had been diagnosed with severe scoliosis, and was most likely going to need surgery. Due to the treatment of Thomas and his team, I was able to avoid major surgery, and went into minor surgery in the best possible health. He has helped me with my recovery following post-op, resulting in me having no restrictions on my movement. I have also gained back all the weight I lost during surgery. Thomas' acupuncture really was a blessing in my life during a very difficult time. I plan on continuing to see him for the years to come. Vivian I had a chronic headache due to the scoliosis for many years. I went to see a chiropractor but the treatments were unsuccessful. I met Dr. Thomas several years ago and I feel much better now. He is passionate, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable with his techniques and treats each and every patients like his own family. Overall, it was a great experience to meet him as my doctor and I would definitely recommend him to everyone.
