I chose to see Jenny for a very common problem, acne. I have suffered with it since puberty, and now almost seven years. I feel that it has affected me more than most people, but that is arguable. Each day, my self-confidence has (and still does) depended on how good my skin was looking.
Since it began, I have avoided and refused to have photos taken of me because of feeling so terrible about myself. It’s so sad to think that I have prevented for myself and others the chance to look back and see how I have changed and grown over the last seven years. My doctor handed me many different contraceptives and antibiotics, and I willingly took them for years with the hope that my skin would get better but it didn’t.
I gave up on my doctor after realising the damage I was doing to my body with all these pills and decided to try a traditional approach, acupuncture. It’s important to note that Jenny was the third acupuncturist I visited. It took a while to find someone who was actually capable of making a difference, but now I won’t see anyone else. Not only has my skin improved one thousand fold within the last four months of seeing her, but she has helped stabilised my menstrual cycle, stress, and she is now working on my tinnitus (constant ringing in the ears). To say she is incredible is an understatement.
For Jenny, my issue is only minor. I hear stories of how she helped other patients with much more important problems, such as a woman who struggled with fertility for years, had gone on to become pregnant after only a few sessions with Jenny. I really can’t express my gratitude enough for helping to return to me my confidence. Though we are still in the process, I can actually see and feel the difference her work has made (and so quickly!).
