So I recently saw Jennifer because of extreme stomach pain and diarrhea. I had gone on a trip to Puerto Rico and had gone swimming in a cave and I think I swallowed some cave water. When I got back to Rochester I was feeling horrible, and I couldn’t sleep or stay away from the toilet. I went and saw Jennifer the next day and within 15 minutes I started feeling relief. It was awesome! I literally fell asleep on the table and slept for the first time, without pain, in 3 days. That night I was finally able to get the rest I needed. I’ve always known that acupuncture can help with pain, but I had no idea I could get instant relief for stomach and intestinal issues.
While sailing on the Celebrity Century, I attended a talk given by Jennifer Dabu. I listened to her talk about using acupuncture for weight loss. I was very skeptical that this would work but since I have tried everything else, I thought I would try this too. Much to my surprise, after several treatments, I did not feel as bloated, the gas has disappeared and best of all, after a two week cruise, my clothes still fit quite comfortably. So, I would recommend giving acupuncture a try to boost your weight loss efforts.
After receiving my first treatment with Jennifer, I was surprised at the loss of fluids which had accumulated in my system. I immediately felt the reduction in hunger and cravings. Being a headache sufferer, I went in for acupuncture and Jennifer used special points to relieve my headache during a treatment. This was the first time that I have experienced acupuncture, but it certainly won’t be the last.
Never had acupuncture before but I thought I would try it for weight loss. Much to my surprise I felt it working immediately! I came back every day during my cruise and I was amazed at all the other surprises that occurred. Back pain that I’ve had for many years got better, no menstrual cramps at all which is unusual for me, IBS symptoms that I’ve had for 30 years almost completely disappeared. It was an amazing experience and I will be following up with someone in my area.
First time I have ever tried acupuncture. I tried it for weight loss. Jennifer was very knowledgeable and was excellent at explaining everything. I am sold. I saw good results with my breathing difficulties. I saw continual success with helping the entire digestive system. I would highly recommend acupuncture to others. Jennifer is great.
I have suffered the effects of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) for 7 years and have tried numerous remedies for the cramping, bloating, and diarrhea. Nothing worked, until I tried acupuncture. After the second session of my 5 day treatment the cramping, pain and discomfort I had for so long associated with eating was completely gone. Thanks to the individually tailored acupuncture available on the cruise ship, not only could I enjoy my vacation, but I could eat foods I had feared for years, and finally enjoy my life again. I am no longer constrained by the location of the nearest washroom, and I have my acupuncturist to thank for that. Thank you so much!
I had nausea and diarrhea from eating too much of the wrong foods. I also have suffered from IBS for more than 20 years. After one acupuncture treatment the nausea and diarrhea went away and 24 hours later I still had no more symptoms. I feel great and renewed and will continue with acupuncture in the future. Many thanks to Jennifer Dabu.
I came in for weight loss acupuncture. Jennifer was wonderful. She explained a lot on how acupuncture will help clear up my digestive track and help me sleep better. My first night after my first session I slept for eight hours and woke up feeling refreshed. During the cruise I also noticed my appetite got smaller, so I was eating less food at meals. I want to say thank you to Jennifer and the staff for being so nice and welcoming to me.
Jennifer is a skilled acupuncturist who took the time to understand my condition and history. Her treatments are gentle, painless, and effective. I found my time on the treatment table to be very relaxing and I felt peaceful after my sessions with her.
The AquaSpa staff recommended I see Jennifer for healing of a severe bruise. Although skeptical about acupuncture treatments, I was immediately won over by Jennifer’s professionalism and genuine caring. She coordinated a plan with the spa for my treatment and I am thrilled to say that she has healed not only my bruise in record time but my overall well being. I am looking forward to finding an acupuncturist at home and maybe being fortunate enough to work with Jennifer again.
I met Jennifer 9 months ago when I first stared working on ships. I was telling her how I never tried acupuncture before because I didn’t think I had any reason to. Then I started getting sea sick to the point I would feel nauseous and throw up. I took sea sickness pills daily for one month and they did not help. I struggled with this for a month and it was affecting my work. Jennifer told me that I must come and see her. I have never looked back. 8 months after I received treatments, it was a series of 4 treatments and occasional preventative treatments when we were warned that the seas would be rough, I haven’t experienced the sea sickness again. Thanks Jennifer you really are amazing.
As a former electrical engineer, I suspect Jennifer has brought a great deal of science to her strong artistry with acupuncture. She is truly gifted. She can liberate you if you let her into your open mind and willing body. Let go of the pain, the blockages – gain relief and great energy. Jennifer frees more and more with every treatment.
I have visited Jennifer numerous times for acupuncture treatments and each experience has been beneficial both for the heart and body. She is informative, easy to talk to, and willing to answer any questions I have. I am a graduate student and finding natural ways of helping my body heal from stress are a top priority. Treatments have helped me substantially reduce menstrual pain, digestion issues, joint/muscle pain, acne and occasional back pain. Acupuncture has also helped with my stress, worry and anxiety. What I appreciate most about this form of medicine is that is addresses the root issue in the process of alleviating the symptoms I see in pain, inflammation and indigestion. Not only do I feel better but I am confident that I can work with my body through treatments (along with diet and exercise) to be strong, healthy and pain-free!
I received acupuncture for my low energy level and food cravings this week and saw an immediate difference. The results were so gratifying as I was able to make the most of my day without wasting time napping and I was able to skip dessert and over eating which allowed me to feel much better and not so stuffed to the point I was ill. I can’t wait to get home and continue my treatments.
I met Jennifer on the 3rd day onboard. I was tired of lack of energy and fatigue. I could not even climb a set of stairs without huffing and puffing. I decided to listen to her presentation on advantages of acupuncture. She was very convincing and after the presentation I spoke to her one on one and I felt confident to try it. I had an amazing experience. In port in Cozumel, I walked for 6km and I was energetic enough to do so. I felt much better than I had been in years. I recommend Jennifer and acupuncture to anyone needing a resetting of their body.
As a dancer, I constantly suffer from aches and pains. The second I’m receiving treatment through acupuncture, the targeted area starts to tingle and relax. It doesn’t take long before my body goes from severe pain to completely relaxed. I usually fall asleep during treatment.
Jennifer saved me my cruise experience from having to stay in bed the whole time. I had 3 treatments and after 2 of them I had relief from pain enough to go on the rest of my excursions. Thank you Jennifer for your expertise and your kindness.
I was treated for TMJ pain – I was taking advil all day long. After the treatment, I was advil free. I am being treated again for digestive health and the results are amazing! I would recommend acupuncture to everyone, Jennifer Dabu is amazing, full of knowledge and very professional. Thank you for all your help.
I have been experiencing a great deal of pain in my legs for quite a while. After hearing Jennifer Dabu speak about acupuncture as a treatment to ease pain, I decided to give it a try. At my first treatment, my pain level on a scale of 1-10 was an 8 in my right and left leg was a 9. After a few treatments, my right leg is now at a pain level of 2 and my left leg is now a 5. I have seen improvements despite being very active while on a 2 week cruise. I strongly feel my situation will improve once I am home an my activity level will not be as strenuous.
Having never had acupuncture, I was uncertain whether the insertion of tiny needles would result in lessening the pain I was experiencing. When I arrived for my first of 3 sessions, I was almost in tears from the effects of 2 pinched nerves. Miss Jennifer was kind and comforting and I felt immediately at ease. After 30 minutes, miracle of miracles, I was pain free for the first time in weeks. This lasted throughout the next day! Although the second session did not have the same results, I am hopeful that the third one will help get me through the remainder of the trip. The effects in total, were better than the steroid injections I’ve had. Thank you! Bless you!!”
About 18 months ago I started getting pains in my left hand. I am a hairdresser by trade and just put it down to a tough day at work. The pain started to get more noticeable until it became constant. I saw a doctor and was diagnosed with repetitive strain injury (R.S.I.). She told me that I would have to wear a brace and it would take at least a month to heal. This injury is very common in the hairdressing industry and many people have had to give up their career because of this. I have now had 5 acupuncture treatments with Jennifer and now have no pain in my hand. I did find it a little funny that my complaint was my hand and she put needles in my right foot, but I’m cured and have no more pain in my hand. Thank you Jennifer you have saved my career.
I was a Dance Captain on board the Celebrity Century from October 2009 until May 2010. Before I boarded the vessel, I severely injured my hamstring during rehearsals. I received several deep tissue massages on land before I left, but I was in serious pain. I happened to live down the hall from Jennifer Dabu and talked to her about my injury. She was more than willing to accommodate me. At my first appointment she asked me many questions regarding my pain and background on the injury. She fully explained the process of Acupuncture and the amazing benefits patients receive from it. She was very gentle when applying the needles and comforting during the procedure. The change in my hamstring was unbelievable. I was able to get through performances and daily functions without the pain. I saw her several times and I owe much of my recovery to her knowledge, skill and bed side manner! She is a warm, friendly person who offers such incredible services!
When I first met Jennifer, I didn’t believe that acupuncture could help me. I had a pain in the ball of my foot and I had seen foot specialists for the previous 5 months and my pain only got worse with each treatment that they gave me. I had a boot on my foot because it hurt too much to walk on it and my friends and I were about to begin a backpacking trip through Europe. When I went in to see Jennifer my pain level was around a 7-8 on a 10 point scale. By the time we got to Europe, the pain had gone down significantly and within a week of being off of our cruise, my boot was off and my pain was gone. Jennifer’s work was so amazingly crucial to the enjoyment of my trip. She was friendly, sympathetic to my situation and professional. I can honestly say that I would trust her to work with me any time and I am so incredibly thankful and indebted to her for helping me to be able to enjoy my once in a lifetime experience.
I have to admit, I was a bit of a skeptic when I caught a cold and was suffering from severe congestion. I decided to ask Jennifer, our Acupuncturist, if Acupuncture could relieve my symptoms. She did a treatment and I felt a little better right away. But it wasn’t until the next morning when I became a true believer. My congestion was almost completely cleared. I couldn’t believe it! Next time I am suffering from congestion, pain, whatever… I’ll be sure to call Jennifer right away.
I had been experiencing a greater amount of stress and lower back pain in the past few months. And found that some of the more traditional methods of treatment were not as effective. So I gave acupuncture a try. I received 4 treatments while onboard. I noticed an almost immediate release of the pressure in my lower back. As the treatments continued, the stress was much less. The sessions were very relaxing and would recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to traditional methods, such as medications.
First let me say I LOVE ACUPUNCTURE!!! No, I don’t love pain, I love that I can immediately feel relaxed and when the acupuncture session is over, I feel like I’ve had the best massage of my life! While living on the ship (Celebrity Century) performing, I felt anxiety, stress and sometimes just didn’t sleep well. I felt my body was unbalanced and was trying to adjust to an unfamiliar environment. As a dancer and gym nut, I am very in tune with my body and knew my body was “off.” Trying acupuncture with Jennifer for only the second time in my life began an experience and healing I’ll never forget. After the first two sessions I felt calmer, more centered and with the “heat” in my body, I felt cooler internally. Life wasn’t coming at me and affecting me as much as now, I could just handle moment by moment with more ease. My appetite changed for the better (craving healthier foods), my sleeping pattern changed to where I was sleeping soundly and feeling well rested as I woke up, and I just felt happier because I felt more grounded. The physical benefits were obvious, but the mental and emotional benefits were what had me convinced! I would say this is one of if not the best ways to heal and balance the body, after all it has been around for more than a thousand years!
