Testimonials
“Bodhi Acupuncture and Wellness of West Des Moines “twice a week” treatments have relieved me of daily headaches that I have experienced for over 30 years. Thanks John. Paul M. Havnen

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.

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.

I started seeing John for lower back pain and insomnia about a year and a half ago. The treatments worked great. Then my husband and I decided to try for baby 2. After my second treatment for fertility I got pregnant. I saw John throughout my pregnancy for relaxation and pelvic pain. I delivered a healthy baby girl 2 weeks ago. John is super nice, affordable, and flexible. I can’t wait to try his treatments for anti aging!

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.

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.

Acupuncture as an Alternative to Opioids

According to the National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics, almost 50,000 people die every year from opioid overdoses, more than 10 million misuse opioids in a given year, and opioids are a factor in 72% of overdose deaths. You hear about the opioid crisis on the nightly news frequently but what can be done to help people deal with chronic pain (the reason they are likely taking the opioids in the first place). Can acupuncture really help? 

Five Benefits of Consistent Acupuncture Treatments

In a nutshell, traditional acupuncture, also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM, works under the belief that the body is controlled by a flow of energy called qi traveling through pathways in the body that are called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that when these pathways become blocked and the energy can’t flow freely, various health problems begin to appear.
