Reviews for Jennifer Whiteside

I came to Jennifer's business for acupuncture while undergoing fertility treatments in Fall 2016. She was very knowledgeable in her treatment plan specifically tailoring it to my individual needs during every visit. There is NO doubt in my mind that her treatments were key to my successful fertility cycle (even against all the odds I was given!), and the way my body responded. If you are researching Acupuncturists that assist with infertility, go to Jennifer Whiteside. Not only did her treatment plan assist my body with responding during my fertility cycle, but she helped center me and to keep stress levels low (which is so very important during fertility treatments). I can't wait to come back!

Jennifer is an amazing acupuncturist. She is analytical and diligent in her approach to make sure that each treatment is as effective as possible. Her treatments have helped me manage a health condition and kept me from needing an invasive surgery for 7 years. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone that needs or wants acupuncture treatments.

I have had a wonderful experience with Jennifer Whiteside and her practice. She knows her clients and what they are going through and helps support them in many facets of life, including acupuncture and other complementary practices. She has really been a breath of fresh air, a positive smile and someone who is clearly on your side. I love working with Jennifer on my wellness journey and have recommended her to others as well. Her office is cozy and welcoming and I always leave refreshed! If your hesitating, I suggest trying acupuncture with Jennifer - it completely took me by surprise!

Jen is awesome. I started seeing her about 18 months ago because my orthopedist recommended acupuncture for arthritis in my knees. Since I have been seeing her, the arthritis in both my knees and hips has improved dramatically. She also gave me a suggestion that improved gastrointestinal issues that had plagued me for years which Western medicine had only improved somewhat. Jen gets to know her patients and really cares about them. I would, and have, recommend(ed) Jen and acupuncture to anyone! Acupuncture is not a miracle cure, but it is great for ongoing physical issues like arthritis.
