I had been experiencing constant pain from a knot in my left shoulder for over 7 months which started leading to pain in my left arm and tingling in my fingers. I had been adjusted by a chiropractor a couple times who then told me there was nothing more that could be done for me.

A co-worker of mine recommended Debra Wood to me and making my first appointment was the best thing I have done! After describing the issue to Debra and the pain it was causing, she came up with a treatment plan for me and she has used a couple techniques I was not familiar with - gwa shah and cupping - and they have been successful.

I am nearing the end of the treatment plan and the knot is gone as well as the pain in my arm.

I found this place on amazon deals , and bought the 50$ deal as I was looking for a new acupuncturist as I am relatively new to Boston. I booked an appointment for last Saturday at 8 am and made a mistake thinking it was Sunday when entered into my phone. I realized at 9 am on Sat and wrote Debra an email immediately. She called me and was very angry with me telling me that "she was now just sitting there twiddling her thumbs". I apologized and explained the error. She asked for my amazon voucher number saying that I should understand. She seemed angry and pushy. I did not give her the voucher. She asked me if I could like to book another appointment and I did so for today at 10:30 am. I went to her session despite being hesitant about having her do a session given that she was angry. I went for the session, I did not find it very good and did not get much feedback from her after going through my medical history. After the session she asked if i wanted to book another one. I asked her for a pamphlet and prices and she told me I owed her 75$ for today. She went on to explain that her time was valuable and since I missed my first session my voucher that I paid for was no longer valid I owed an additional 75$. She said she normally charges $100. I told her how that was not the conversation that we had and I would call amazon. She said it was not between Amazon and that she had explained this to me. There was NEVER any mention of being charged an additional $75.00
I left and said "sorry about this" and she said "yes you should be".

I found Debra to be misleading and experience to be a negative one. I would not recommend this place.

I have had a very positive experience with Debra Wood. A few years ago, I went to see her with a very distressing health issue, after seeing countless M.D's for this medical condition. She told me she would let me know if after a few visits she thought she would be able to help me. After my first few appointments, I felt the first relief I had had in months, and with continued treatments, my symptoms have become much more manageable and my quality of life has been much improved.

Conventional medicine would have me take all kinds of medications to suppress the symptoms, which work quickly but ultimately cause more problems and weaken the organs. By going to acupuncture with Debra, I have been able to eliminate most of the medications; I would say a much better approach. I wish more people would have faith in alternative medicines, such as acupuncture.

Debra is very knowledgeable and committed to her profession. I have tried other acupuncturists, but have had the best relief of symptoms with her. I am so grateful to have found Debra.

After spending over a year with chiropractors and specialists treating both back and lower abdominal pain (primarily with pain killers), I approached Debra in hopes of finding an alternative and more successful remedy. Debra has proved to be not just an acupuncturist, but an extremely thorough and knowledgeable holistic healer. She has helped me understand the complicated and integrated factors that affect my health, and treated both the root causes and symptoms of my problems. She is fun to work with, is a patient listener, and an excellent teacher and de-mystifier of the techniques and benefits of Eastern medicine. In just three months, her efforts and treatments have alleviated almost all of my previous pain!

When I began treatment with Debra, I had an open mind. I also had terrible digestive disorders. Through a regular schedule schedule of accupuncture and herbal medicine the pain and discomfort that was a daily occurance in my life, is now just a memory. Debra has a holistic and realistic and consistent approach to wellness and health. I believe her style of care allowed my body to heal itself. Accupuncture care is a commitment I made to myself to realize how well I could be. Not only did it help me, but the experience also gave me a sense of partnership with Debra, a feeling I have rarely had with ANY health care provider. This experience has dramatically changed my life. Thank you!

I never had acupuncture before but heard alot about it. I wasn't sure what to expect when I went in for my first appointment but was very impressed by how professional and effective my experience was. After my very first treatment my headache was gone and I slept the whole night!! I am really glad that I found Debra.
