"I cannot explain in enough words what positive effects acupuncture had on me. I had fears about needles but Monika made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and helped me alleviate my needle fears. She taught me to adopt healthy habits, being very knowledgeable about different diseases and ailments. I learned many things from her including how to take better care of my health and many things about how acupuncture and other elements of Chinese medicine differ from western medicine. I went to Monika because I wanted to improve my immune system, relieve stress, and not to feel my shoulder pain that I had for months. I have to say that after a couple of acupuncture sessions I started to feel better and my shoulder pain disappeared. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone! I would recommend Monika because she knows exactly the best route to take regarding treatment. "
"I have a very painful degenerative arthritis condition, ankylosing spondylitis. I have found that these treatments alleviate my pain and other symptoms of my condition. It has helped me create a more effective, positive approach to a chronic condition. It seems to be the only effective approach of the many that I have explored. Monika Gajiwala has a very assured yet gentle touch and I am highly appreciative of the help she has given me."
"I am 68 years old and have responded quite favorably to treatment which have been mostly weekly. In the past year, I felt well taken care of by Monika with her focused and concentrated needling technique. I was always provided answers to my questions. Between her and her treatment supervisor’s input, I accomplished my main goal when I first started i.e. to eliminate dependency and discontinue my need for inhaled steroids for my respiratory problems. I will continue at PCOM to further enhance my well-being and healthy balance as I age."
