Testimonials

Dr. John is absolutely wonderful. I called him at random because my husband has issues with his shoulder/arm and knee and his knee got so bad he was limping. I called to inquire and told him the situation and he said that he could meet with us the next day. I stressed how my husbands pain was so bad that I was considering taking him to the ER. With that said, he told us to come in. I think he gave up his lunch break 🙁 Sorry John.

Anyway, he greeted us and walked us in. The office is nice and has a great relaxing ambiance. Being the good wife I went in for the whole consultation and filled out the paper work. He brought us both bottles of water./ John was great during evaluation and explained everything in detail. He then took my husband in and started the acupuncture.

I went to John to explore acupuncture and it was a great experience. His office is very relaxing and he is very passionate about his work and thorough. I had some lower back tightness that is completely gone after one session. I go see John often because I get the healing I need and someone who is looking out for my well-being.

I was a “newbie” when I started going to acupuncture at Bodhi, and have to say that I enjoyed the experience greatly. I enjoyed the experience so much that I have been going to John regularly ever since. What made me a consistent patient at Bodhi Acupuncture and Wellness is John’s timeliness, professionalism, and easygoing personality. I highly recommend John and his services.

I would highly recommend John at Bodhi. This was my first time ever doing acupuncture and it was a great experience and my neck pain and lower back pain was gone. Very relaxed environment and John is so easy to talk to . If you are stressed or anything this is the perfect treatment for you. Excellent experience that you should try if you are contemplating it.

I highly recommend John at Bodhi. He is very thorough, caring and skilled. I have been receiving this treatment for one year now, 1-2 times per week, and it has helped tremendously. In addition to relieving my neck and shoulder pain, i leave the treatment feeling extremely relaxed and calm. You will receive a great value. John also uses an amazing massage machine after the treatment for additional relaxation. You don’t want to miss this place.

John does great work. When I started going to him I had tried therapy, shots, swim therapy and need a cane to get around. Now I only use a cane to help with a lot of steps. I recommend him to anyone who needs back and nerve relief.

Acupuncture for Chronic Back Pain

A Harris Poll released earlier this year found that approximately three out of ten U.S. adults currently suffer from chronic low back pain. To put it another way, that’s an estimated 72.3 million people! Common treatments usually include prescription medications which bring their own complications and side effects into the picture. If you are looking for a drug-free alternative to your back pain, acupuncture could be the solution you have been searching for. 

Acupuncture for Sports Injuries

Whether you are a professional, college, or high school athlete (or maybe just a weekend warrior), you know that injuries can happen when you least expect it. Sometimes, it’s a traumatic injury because your body was pushed beyond its limit and sometimes, the injury comes from simple overuse. And every athlete wants to get back on the field, court, or track as quickly as possible.

How Acupuncture Can Improve Lung Health

The health of our lungs isn’t necessarily talked about a lot when general health is discussed. Typically, cardiovascular health, chronic pain, cholesterol and stroke risk tend to be the more common topics. Many don’t think about lung health until there is a problem and then improving it becomes priority number one.
