Marcia J. - 69 year old, Female - Ankle Surgery
I went to see Isabelle after I had surgery for a broken ankle. My doctor and I were both amazed at how quickly I recovered. It was a combination of acupuncture, cupping, electro acupuncture, and herbs that contributed to my speedy recover.

She is professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. She is passionate about what she does, and it shows.

Thank you Isabelle, my healer.

Debra G. - 50 year old, Female -  Back Pain
Isabelle Shuman is a lovely woman with a warm and comforting approach. She spends a good amount of time understanding your issues. After a diskectomy 10 years ago on my lower back I have always maintained exercise together with deep tissue massage and recently started acupuncture with Isabelle. After a few visits I can already feel the area opening up and making a difference.

Thank you Isabelle, I look forward to continuing my treatments and not only for my back, but any other health issues that come up.

Shauna K. - 40 year old, Female -  Physical and Emotional Pain
Isabelle is a wonderful acupuncturist. She has kind, soothing energy and a calming bedside manner. Her extensive knowledge of herbs, supplements, food and overall body health has been so helpful to me, and far beyond what I’ve received from any other doctor. She has helped me with neck and back pain as well as emotional traumas. Her ability to pinpoint the issue, whether it be physical, emotional, or a combination of both is quite amazing. She then puts her magic needles in and a half hour later, you walk out feeling great. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering acupuncture and looking for overall balance in their mind-body-spirit health!

Ray F. - 39 year old, Male -  Knee Pain and Allergies
I have been an active runner for the past 15 years of my life, while training for my last half marathon, I developed knee pain. I originally thought that the pain was temporary and would go away after resting for a couple of days. The pain did not go away and I was in danger of missing the race. I sought out the Shuman Wellness Center for treatment; Isabelle treated my knee over the course of three months and was able to get me to the race.

During the treatments on my knee Isabelle noticed that I had a chronic stuffy nose and nasal passage. She inquired about my stuffy nose and sniffing, and developed a treatment plan to help my allergies, using both acupuncture and herbs. My allergies have never been better!!!

She used varying treatments, answered all my questions, dug deep into the causes and provided guidance to help me during the treatment process. I highly recommend her as she is caring and highly skilled acupuncturist.

Patricia L. - 43 year old, Female -  Anxiety
I've been working with Isabelle for a couple years now.

I had a small accident while running with my dogs, fell and broke my collar bone. After, going to the emergency room and being told “there is nothing we can do, here are some pain meds.” I called Isabelle, told her my situation and this is how my journey to happy forward thinking began.

In addition to my collar bone, I take anxiety meds and never felt good about taking them. I struggled when my kids were young and my doctor recommended anxiety medication. The medication still did not make me feel myself. I tried different formulas and strengths, but was still very up and down. Isabelle and I discussed how I could become more even minded and how to stop reacting to everything around me. As a professional woman, I felt the need to not have emotional outburst and act accordingly. Isabelle recommended adding herbs to supplement my anxiety medication. At this point in my life I feel the best I have ever felt!!! I'm not angry and am able to look to the future.

Acupuncture is an amazing concept, that a tiny needle inserted into your body, manipulated and left to sit, can change your life. I have heard some people say that acupuncture didn't work for them, but I say Isabelle is my healer and has changed my life.

I look forward to every visit with her...
