My experience with Jill at To the Point Acupuncture has been terrific. I’ve only been going for a couple of months and after 2 years of infertility treatments and tests my husband and our expecting our first child. Jill’s professional attitude and warmth as a person shine through quickly, my fears were quickly put to rest and my comfort level with treatments came easily. I drive 2 hours to see Jill and would easily recommend her to anyone struggling with infertility and the side effects of harsh fertility medications. Thanks Jill for helping make our dreams come true!
Great Experience – Highly recommend!
Like most people who have never been to an acupuncturist, I was quite skeptical at first. However, after my first session I can only wonder why I waited so long. Jill is absolutely fantastic and she immediately makes you feel comfortable. I have been seeing her for about two months and I haven’t felt this great in years. I was originally taking 4 different allergy medications a day and since seeing Jill I have not taken a single medication. An excellent side effect is that I feel more relaxed, I sleep better, and have more energy than I ever had before. If you have never tried this, I highly recommend going to see Jill. She is very knowledgeable and has created an environment that will immediately put you at ease. Whatever your ail, you won’t be sorry that you chose To The Point!
Restless Legs Syndrome
I am 37 years old and have been suffering from Restless Legs for over 13 years and have been on medication for the last 4 years. The medication helped me sleep but because of the doping agent I could barely drag myself out of bed in the morning and I was on the lowest dose possible! I knew there had to be a better way and my sister suggested Acupuncture. After my first treatment, which included a very detailed medical history taken by Jill, I could sense some relief. After two weeks I was able to stop my medication and with every visit the severity and frequency of my Restless Legs has decreased. Thank you so much Jill, I appreciate your knowledge, your patience and your attention to detail.
For five years I have experienced mild pain on the left side of my back. I seen several doctors all resulting in no diagnosis or relief, and many visits for physical therapy which ultimately did nothing. I decided to try acupuncture as an alternative. I did the research online and e-mailed a message to Jill regarding my issue. She responded right away and I felt very much at ease about trying acupuncture for the first time. I have had at least five visits so far. I can’t begin to describe how de-stressed and relaxed I feel after each session. It is as if the acupuncture unblocks all energy pathways in my body. When I am lying on the table, I am so relaxed that I can only feel myself breathing (deeply), and hear the ticking of the heat lamp and soft music in the background. If you are afraid to try acupuncture, don’t give it a second thought. The needles DO NOT hurt. Jill is very knowledgeable and knows what she is doing. She is also a very attentive and caring person. I only visit once a month but would love to be able to visit once a week. It has become something that I look forward to every month and could conceivably see myself doing the rest of my life!
I started going to see Jill to help regulate my cycle. My husband and I were thinking about having children and my menstrual cycles were completely out of whack. At the first appointment I quickly realized the importance of feeling comfortable with your acupuncturist. In order to provide proper treatment they need to know everything that is going on with you; the good and the bad! Thankfully I found Jill at To The Point Acupuncture. She is awesome. I felt so at ease with her from the beginning. She is very easy to talk to but at the same time is very professional. Thanks to Jill and my acupuncture treatments my husband and I are expecting our first child! I am 100% convinced we got pregnant with such ease because of Jill’s treatments and her knowledge of the human body. Thank you Jill!
Jill is a fantastic acupuncturist – the best one I’ve ever been to. I’ve had varicocele since high school, a condition only curable by surgery according to Western medicine. I’d been worried about the condition, as it can cause infertility, but for obvious reasons had never wanted to undergo surgery for it. I’d mentioned it to several other acupuncturists, but none of them could figure out what to do. Jill, on the other hand, selected several points to get things flowing back into the affected area and after only one session, the condition is 70% better! I can hardly believe it. I’m sure with a few more sessions we can get everything back to normal. Jill is a very talented acupuncturist and a very caring person to boot, and I would highly, highly recommend her.
Allergy and menstrual cramp and medication-free!
I was recommended to Jill by a friend who had success, and I am so pleased that I took my friends advice. What brought me to Jill was the constant feeling of sleepiness and low on energy as a result of significant allergy problems. I am now in the middle of allergy season and am sneezing, itchy-eyed, headache and medication-free! Also, I have always had extremely severe pain associated with menstrual cramps and after a few sessions, I am virtually pain-free. Prior to working with Jill, I was taking up to 6 ibuprofen a day during my period. I no longer even need a heating pad! Admittedly I was a skeptic but Jill has changed the way I look at health. She provides a comprehensive, holistic service with medication-free healing as a goal. She is friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and I will continue to recommended her to everyone I know.
Absolutely Wonderful Experience
My experience with Jill at To the Point Acupuncture has been absolutely wonderful. After a detailed first session, Jill has helped me neck pain, back pain, headaches and jaw pain all relating to stress. After I lost my 15 month old daughter, I sought out Jill to help with stress, but also general well-being and relaxation. After a few sessions, my neck and back are no longer tight and sore, my jaw pain has gone away and I experience very few headaches. She has helped me tremendously through my grieving process, and I have and will continue to recommend her services to friends and others. Admittedly I was a skeptic but Jill has changed the way I look at health. She provides a comprehensive, holistic service with medication-free healing as a goal. She is friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and I will continue to recommended her to everyone I know.
New to acupuncture – great experience at To the Point Acupuncture
This was my first acupuncture experience and I have to admit that I was a little nervous. I decided to try acupuncture because my husband and I were trying to get pregnant for almost a year, I was becoming more anxious and having an increase in my IBS symptoms. The initial visit included a very detailed intake exam and my 1st acupuncture….which turned out to be quite relaxing. Jill, the acupuncture provider, was excellent she explained acupuncture and Eastern medicine in detail. During the treatments she is very in tune to the client, making sure you are comfortable and giving rationale for the various acupuncture sites. Well several months later, my husband and I found out we are expecting this fall and my IBS symptoms have resolved. I even noticed that while everyone is battling this difficult spring with allergies, which I normally do as well, I have had no signs/symptoms of allergies. My sister had an acupuncture experience (out of town) that was not a very good experience (the out-of-town provider caused pain/bleeding and was not very professional). My sister was contemplating driving 1.5 hrs to see Jill, but Jill helped us find a acupuncture provider that met our expectations. Those are just a few of the ways Jill provides excellent services. From her relaxing treatments and caring/professional manner, I would highly recommend Jill (To the Point Acupuncture).
I was so lucky to have found Jill Doan when I did. As a ballet dancer I have suffered from multiple stress fractures in my right foot and was having a really hard time getting it to heal and become strong again. After only a few sessions my foot began to be completely pain-free and has been since, even with my rigorous ballet schedule. Every time I hear a fellow dancer complain about any ache or pain, I immediately say “you need acupuncture!”. It has truly been a miracle for me and my dance career. Thanks to Jill I am now dancing at Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, Thank you so much!!
Jill Doan saved my life. Sounds dramatic, but it is true. I am a musician who had been struggling with losing control of my arm while I was playing my instrument. It would lock up and I’d end up fighting myself to play. I’d tried massage and therapy and couldn’t stop the process. I’d thought that I might have to give up my career and quit playing. Not only was I terrified to play, but I was overcome with anxiety in my everyday life. After a month of working with Jill, I am free from something that has been haunting me for 15 years. Not only is the arm issue gone, but my general anxiety is greatly reduced and my mental health is better and stronger. Acupuncture with Jill has had the greatest impact of ANY of the remedies and treatments I have explored.
Jill Doan is one of those truly exceptional human beings that is living her calling as an acupuncturist and holistic care giver. We are fortunate to have her practicing in our community. I can speak first hand as she helped me recently overcome a personal health issue I had been dealing with for several years. After 4 months of weekly treatments my problem was resolved. Most recently she began seeing my daughter who had already had an ovarian cyst removed in 2010. At the recurrence of the cyst she began seeing Jill who administered twice weekly acupuncture sessions along with herbal supplements. After five treatments the cyst was completely gone to the amazement of the Dr. she was seeing. ACUPUNCTURE works!! It’s like a lot of things, you just have to find someone that really knows what they are doing. Do yourself a favor if you are looking for an alternative or adjunct to today’s clinical approach to health issues and set an appointment to see Jill.
Significant Reduction in Fibromyalgia Pain. I began seeing Jill at To The Point Acupuncture in March of 2010 for Fibromyalgia and three herniated discs. Following my very first appointment I experienced a reduction in pain levels and a boost in energy. Prior to seeing Jill my chronic pain had become increasingly intolerable even to the point of having burning sensations in the muscles in my face. Over the past nine months my treatments have been so successful I have been able to totally eliminate two prescription pain medications. Jill is professional, open minded, kind and just an overall terrific person. The appointment rooms in her office are pleasant and very clean. If you are dealing with chronic pain issues I cannot say enough about how much Jill’s acupuncture treatments have changed my quality of life for the better. If you go, wear loose, comfortable clothing and you won’t even have to undress for most treatments. At least I have not had to do so yet. Good luck and best wishes for your improved health.
I had been diagnosed with another large ovarian cyst. My doctor wanted to wait a few months before a follow-up visit to see if it grew, shrunk, or stayed the same size before I had surgery. I decided to be proactive and seek out alternatives. I had already had surgery once and didn’t think I could handle it again. I was referred to Jill at To The Point Acupuncture and began seeing her twice weekly. She also gave me some herbs to take and within 5 visits, my cyst was gone. It was amazing! I am truly in awe of what she could do and how quickly the acupuncture worked. Jill is friendly, spunky, and knowledgeable. Her practice is clean and relaxing. She really goes over the top for her clients and makes them feel as comfortable as possible. To The Point Acupuncture changed my life.
