Perfect acupuncturist for your first time. Professional, gentle and informed 11/28/2007

Marnie McCurdy has employed me for nearly 4 years. Over time I have seen many happy patients treated successfully by her. Because of my severe fear of needles I was too scared to ever seek treatment from her for past aches and pains. That is until I developed horrible nerve pain in my feet. My medical doctor didn?t have any answers other than Rx's that may or may not help, and had terrible side affects. I was desperate for relief: more

Perfect acupuncturist for your first time. Professional, gentle and informed 11/28/2007

Marnie McCurdy has employed me for nearly 4 years. Over time I have seen many happy patients treated successfully by her. Because of my severe fear of needles I was too scared to ever seek treatment from her for past aches and pains. That is until I developed horrible nerve pain in my feet. My medical doctor didn?t have any answers other than Rx's that may or may not help, and had terrible side affects. I was desperate for relief: \r I started my treatment with Marnie several weeks ago and it has been amazing. She made me feel so comfortable I didn?t even realize when the first needle was inserted. I had to laugh out loud at my self for being so frightened. There was no pain at all. With other needles I could feel them but it was just kind of weird sensations. I felt some immediate relief after the first treatment. As time went on I had more and more relief from the pain and the relief lasted longer and longer after the treatments. Marnie also took into account my lifestyle, eating habits and even my emotional well-being. We?re working on nutrition at this point. Next time I have any new aches and pains I?m calling Marnie before my M.D. more

A healing experience that will grant you suppleness once again! 6/15/2007

I am so excited to have found East-West Int. Medicine! Many of my healing needs have been fulfilled here. My weekly appointments have been more than beneficial. As an athlete working with past injuries, it has been vital for me to receive these treatments. I see Marnie for acupuncture on a regular basis. Her care combined with my own system for relieving adhesions has substantially decreased overactivity in chronic ""problem"" areas. I couldn't have gotten here alone. As soon as I started receiving regular acupuncture I noticed my problematic areas didn't seem to be much of a problem anymore. In fact, as long as I stay consistent with acupuncture, massage, and mindful exercise and stretching, I am generally clear of the old obstacles that rear their ugly heads and put a damper upon my athletic progression. I definitely noticed that staying consistent with regular acupuncture and massage was a key component! I highly recommend Susan for massage. Her deep knowledge of the body combined with her intuitive sense in the moment makes for a deliciously relaxing and healing massage experience. Susan transfers her extensive experience as a yoga teacher in highly effective ways during the massage. Her observations and insights have helped me integrate a deeper understanding and awareness of my body. What else can I say, Marnie and Susan are great! Pros: An abundance! Cons: None yet! more

Wonderful, Amazing, Healing, Yummy Massages by Tod 5/23/2007

I have been receiving massages from Tod for over a year now. He is a\r wonderful person, amazing masseuse with beautiful energy. He has a\r great ability to ground energy and create a feeling of bliss and peace\r while also working out knots and tension. I always leave his massages\r feeling physical and emotional release. I would, honestly, see him\r several times a week if I could afford it! I was resistant to getting\r massaes when I bean seeing him, but he I felt so at ease on his table\r and the benefits of his massages quickly dissipated any discomfort or\r resistance I had. I highly recommend seeing Tod for massages! Pros: everyone that works there is friendly, personable, professional, and they do an amazing job! Cons: parking can be tricky more

Truly Integrative Medicine 4/8/2007

i've been going to east west for the last few years. marnie's style is professional, yet warm and gentle. i was new to acupuncture and a little nervous my first few times and she was very sensitive and informative. i go primarily for chronic back pain but when new health issues come up for me such as headaches, colds, stress, stomach and digestive issues, she's investigated several causes with me and then tailored her treatments to accommodate the problems. she helped me solve a variety of health problems and i really don't know what i'd do without her. she also offers dependable referrals when it looks like you could use treatment outside her expertise. i also really like the massage therapists in the office. they are both excellent and have different styles. one has a thai massage feel with stretching and deep tissue work and the other is a full body soothing experience. both leave you feeling relaxed and happy. I'd recommend east west to anyone. Pros: after work hours, close to bart, easy parking, takes insurance Cons: sometimes hard to book more

good for first-timers 2/28/2007

I had never gotten acupuncture before I went to Marnie. (I have a fear of needles.) But when a friend assured me that Marnie could help with my problem, I bit the bullet and went in. Marnie was very respectful of my fears and created a calm, relaxing atmosphere. She used small needles. I hadn't wanted to look like a hedgehog, so she only used about five or six in specific points, and found alternatives for my ears since I was most afraid of needles there. As long as I kept my eyes closed, it was fine - I never felt the needles going in. After a couple of sessions, I was comfortable with as many as a dozen needles, and that's where I stayed for the time I got acupuncture. Pros: respectful, calming, friendly more

After a couple of sessions, I was comfortable with as many as a dozen needles, and that's where I stayed for the time I got acupuncture.\r \r After the needles are inserted, the acupuncturist leaves you alone. At East West, you are alone in your own room, with dim warm non-fluorescent light and soothing music playing. Marnie gave me a panic button I could hold in my hand so that if I needed attention I could call her. Just the fact of having the button eased most of what could have been panic for me.\r \r Occasionally, I woud suffer from back pain as well because my spouse, a massage therapist, and I could not get our schedules to line up enough for my spouse to work on me. In those cases, Marnie would split my session into acupuncture and massage. Marnie is an accomplished massage therapist and absolutely worth going to for that alone, as well as for her wonderful acupuncture work.\r \r After about a year of going to her, my problem was solved, and I'm very happy that I took the time to have Marnie give me acupuncture. Pros: respectful, calming, friendly more

a wonderful experience 10/14/2006

I have been to other acupuncturists trying to find one I felt could work with, Marnie provided the most wonderful experience I've had. Right from the beginning she helped me to feel comfortable and relaxed even though I walked in the door feeling just the opposite. She's professional, easy going, intuitive and a good listener. Go see Marnie, she's the best. Pros: effective treatment Cons: she's busy more

Marnie McCurdy's acupuncture treatments took away my leg pain 9/7/2006

i've been seeing Marnie McCurdy for a lower leg pain over the past month and a half. i had a very excruciating pain on my lower right leg that prevented me from doing much exercise, i couldn't even walk a block without pain. Standing for just a minute would even aggravate it. i consider myself having a high tolerance for pain, but this was just too much - something was wrong. Pros: alternative to taking pills more

Marnie McCurdy's acupuncture treatments took away my leg pain 9/7/2006

i've been seeing Marnie McCurdy for a lower leg pain over the past month and a half. i had a very excruciating pain on my lower right leg that prevented me from doing much exercise, i couldn't even walk a block without pain. Standing for just a minute would even aggravate it. i consider myself having a high tolerance for pain, but this was just too much - something was wrong.\r i went to my primary physician. she prescribed an anti-inflammatory medication, then referred me to an orthopedist and to a physical therapist. i wanted an alternative to taking pills. it seemed no one knew exactly what was causing the pain (i even had an xray) as Marnie suggested, to cover all my bases. the orthopedist's only suggestion was to keep exercising, then to call back if the pain persisted. the pain was the factor that kept me from exercising, so i found his suggestion senseless. i appreciated all their efforts, but it just seemed that i wasn't receiving the right treatment and my leg was not getting any better. \r after consulting with Marnie, i began to see her regularly. She's very attentive, sympathetic, knowledgeable, and professional. this is the first time i had ever seen anyone for acupuncture and Marnie really made me feel comfortable. i felt very confident in her treatment.\r today, my leg feels great. i realized the other night that i had not thought about my pain all day. it was actually gone. it feels refreshing to be able to take long walks again...\r thank you, Marnie!!! you've got that amazing, healing touch. Pros: alternative to taking pills more

Marnie is wonderful 7/11/2006

Where do I start? I first saw Marnie when I was trying to get rid of an awful chest cold I had for about 3 weeks. I went into her office coughing, I had very low energy and I was feeling pretty miserable. I'm 27 and I felt like I was 80. She did a treatment that involved acupuncture as well as Cupping. She also gave me some advice on what food and drinks to stay away from. I left her office that day without any coughing at all. I was really amazed and happy at how quickly her treatment worked on me and how fast my body was able to regain energy and feel normal again.\r Around that time I also hurt my lower back and hip area lifting something I should not have. I went to a chiropractor for 2 months, about twice a week. It just wasn't helping. I was limping on a daily basis and could not sleep a full night without my leg going numb. I told Marnie what was happening and she told me to come in. After one treatment I was able to do more in one day then I could for almost 2 months. She still treats me about once a month for this, and each time I feel better and better. She is comforting and gentle and I can't rave enough about her!! more

More raves for Marnie! 6/2/2006

After an orthopedic surgeon told me that surgery was the only solution for a medial meniscus tear in my right knee, I decided to give acupuncture a try before going under the knife. I've been to Marnie five times and now my knee is almost completely pain-free. I've been able to resume aerobic dancing for the first time in over a year. Marnie is always patient, attentive, friendly, and relaxed. She takes a lot of time and follows the acupuncture with a deep leg massage, despite the fact that my insurance pays her only slightly more than half of what she normally charges. I always leave feeling calm and happy--she really has a healing touch. more
