Testimonials

Our Happy Patient

I've been to a lot of acupuncturists in my time. I have never met one quite like Robert. I suffer from a surgical error from 6 years ago that essentially killed the nerves to my left leg/foot. Over the past 6 months, Robert's magic has restored a significant amount of sensation to my foot. Now I am working with a PT who is working to restore function. After 6 years, I gave up hope that I would ever restore function. Thanks for Robert's magic, I have hope. I'm not sure how much function will be restored. But so far, what has been restored is amazing!

Highly recommend Acupuncture Connections! I have lower back pain and acupuncture immediately helped lessen the pain and give me back my every day functions! The team is so knowledgeable, understanding and friendly. They take the time to explain their process, how my body is reacting and what I can do to help my body improve.

google

So pleased with my acupuncture experience. Great staff… Robert, Angela and Delaney! Robert is such an understanding and caring health care provider… he listens, patiently explains procedures and encourages me. A truly holistic approach. I trust him completely! Thank you!

Eighteen years ago, I was diagnosed by some of the brightest doctors at one of the best hospitals in Boston with an incurable, degenerative, autoimmune disease. My prognosis was bleak. The best I could hope for, according to them, was to prolong the inevitable disintegration of my condition with their treatment options. I followed their orders for over two years, living in excruciating pain and stiffness, incapable of taking care of daily essentials like getting dressed without assistance. Then, I met Robert and my life changed forever. With Robert's support, guidance, and long term treatment plan in place, I went cold turkey off of all my medications, which included poisonous potions such as infliximab and methotrexate. I underwent severe, cruel, and unbearable withdrawals. My doctors were not only unsupportive, but I was actually told not to come back after refusing to continue treatment unless I was going to cooperate and resume the drug regimen. I put all my faith in what I was being introduced to by Robert, and my life changed very quickly and permanently. He successfully navigated me out of a nightmare withdrawal and managed to simultaneously eliminate my pain in a matter of months. When I told my doctors I wanted to discontinue my treatment, they told me that my vertebrae would fuse together if I stopped, but they were wrong. My vertebrae did not fuse together, and I have not been a victim of an incurable degenerative autoimmune disease. In fact, I am less bothered by my symptoms today, than I was 18 years ago. Robert helped me restore my quality of life to a state better than the best my doctors told me I could expect. Allopathic medicine is everywhere, but it is not the only way. Robert showed me that there is another way.

I absolutely love it here and would recommend this place to anyone. The entire team is a pleasure to work with. Can’t say enough good things!!!!

google

Came with lower back and leg issues. In session 5 and seeing pain removed and far more flexibility

google

The staff are knowledgeable and make you feel welcome. The results of my treatment are nothing short of a miracle. Fifteens years ago I had a construction accident and broke 26 bones. After many operations, I was able to function normally. The last 10 years my mobility started to decline, after two more surgeries I wasn't moving any better. A friend advise to try acupuncture, being skeptical as I am, I went to Acupuncture Connnections and was going for treatment. I was amazed how fast the results were happening, I would love to tell you I'm pain free, but not yet! I'm moving with much less pain and I'm getting my strength back. Truly grateful to my friend and Acupuncture Connections. Thank you Alan

For years I have suffered with back pain and decided to give accupuncture a whirl. My everyday life has changed tremendously. I have my life "back" big thanks to Robert and Angela!!

google

I just recently started acupuncture. I pursued this modality because I had a great deal of shoulder pain. Since I’ve been coming regularly, I have been feeling fantastic. I was apprehensive about the needles but the process is totally manageable. I would recommend it for anybody who has pain or if you are just looking to improve your well-being.

google

I made more progress improving how I felt in a fraction of the time I’ve spent other places. Robert and Angela are thoughtful, knowledgeable, and fantastic partners in helping to heal and feel better. Highly recommend!!

Angela helped alleviate my back pain!

Finally tried acupuncture in conjunction with a second round of PT as a last resort to deal with chronic leg pain. I had struggled with for almost a year with upper calf, thigh and whole leg spasms which impacted my ability to drive, sit and sleep at night. What a thoroughly depressing and anxiety ridden journey going to traditional doctors - too long of saga for this review. Didn't know what to expect as had never had acupuncture before so researched online and found that scientific medical research has validated the use of acupuncture to help with pain conditions... acupuncture has a long history ....2500 years. My experience is acupuncture DOES help with pain and mobility and my insurance covers 30 visits each year so am guessing if insurance covers, it must work - LOL! Definitely better than surgery (and lower cost). Robert is tops. He has really easy calm manner, explains what's he's doing, how to understand what the body is doing / reacting, even helped my understand of history of acupuncture. Delaney and Angela are also part of the team and I thoroughly like both of them (been to enough doctors that the entire office team is critical to good experience.) PLEASE consider giving Robert and Acupuncture Connections a try, especially if you're in pain and struggling with mobility/pain-free movement. Can't help but think you'll be glad you did based upon my own positive experience. Note: I did do acupuncture treatments with a second round of physical therapy treatments (first round did nothing for me). Together with a better PT and with Robert I feel almost 100% healed. As for those who are worried about being "stuck by needles" (my hubby is one), you should know that acupuncture needles are MUCH MUCH thinner than medical syringes and sewing needles. - acupuncture needles are hair like. I usually don't "feel" the needle being inserted and IF a needle is ever uncomfortable after inserted, just tell Robert and he will reposition. He is very intuitive and observant so it happens rarely.

google

Robert & Angela are amazing. I have finally found a place where I find some relief physically and mentally.

google

I’m an acupuncturist with over 20 years experience and in my opinion Robert is the best around.

google

Absolutely fabulous! Highly recommend both Robert and Angela. Both have been patient, caring and nurturing. My broken body has never felt better!!!

google

Really like it here!

google

Angela is the best. I have been seeing her for over a month now. She has helped me so much with pain and muscle tightness in my legs due to a knee injury.

google

Our family has had an excellent experience at Acupuncture Connections. Robert helped my teenaged son through a long and frustrating hip injury last year and he was instrumental in his healing, pain management and recovery. Robert is very knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate and his treatments are not only relaxing but also extremely effective. My husband and I now both see him for various issues (our son returns for tune ups as needed) and we always leave feeling healed and refreshed. The rooms are clean and and calming and the staff is helpful and friendly. If you are looking for acupuncture that will truly make a difference in your healing and in your life, give Acupuncture Connections a try. You will be happy you did!

As an aging elite competitive athlete it takes a team to keep the body healthy. Robert and staff are now part of my winning team. He is extremely knowledgeable and got me to the start line injury free. Now acupuncture is integrated into my overall journey of longevity and well being. The calming atmosphere promotes healing, clarity as you come into breath and relaxation. Thank you~Tonya Spagnuolo

I have had pain when turning my head for many years. I tried physical therapy, chiropractic therapy and massage therapy. Nothing gave me the relief that I needed. I started at Acupuncture Connections and within two treatments I was experiencing diminished pain when turning my head. With continued sessions I now have full range of motion in my neck without pain. The staff is very helpful and did handle all of my concerns in a professional manner.

google

This is a great place to receive acupuncture treatments. It is a clean and welcoming facility. Robert is very knowledgeable and has been helpful with my chronic migraines and anxiety. I would recommend anyone suffering from chronic pain, stress, or musculoskeletal problems come to Acupuncture Connections. Angela the new acupunturist is also great and Delaney is very friendly at the front desk.

google

Not only has Robert helped me feel better, he’s funny and makes everything more fun!

google

For my first experience with Acupuncture Connections was totally different than the one I had with the two doctors who could not explain the cause of the back pain that made me suffer a lot. What more can I say: The way doctors work today is simple. As soon as a disease appears, it is attacked as if it were the only one in the world; we settle his account and then we put the patient out until he is confronted with a new problem; we will then settle the account of the latter. And so on until it doesn't work anymore. with Robert (acupuncture connection) his approach is totally different. every cause has an effect and every effect has a cause! in 10 minutes he was able to explain to me the total cause of my back problem. he knew how to give me the right information to make me understand where the origin of the cause of my back came from, which no one could do before. total exhaustion of my entire system from the way i treat my body. after 35 minutes of acupuncture, I felt something incredible in my body, I felt like I was regenerating. thank you a thousand times for this best experience and it's only the beginning of a new life.

Service and care is exceptional from all members of this team (Robert, Angela, and Delaney)! I feel heard, respected, and appreciated. They have targeted my issues and created a consistent wellness plan for my recovery.

google

It is truly a wonderful experience! From the moment I walked in I felt welcome by everyone. Everyone is extremely kind, professional and understanding. I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else for acupuncture! Thank you all!!

google

Acupuncture connections provides very good care! I trust that I am in very good hands as he is very knowledgable. The acupuncture has helped me a lot in many ways. I 100% recommend coming here for your care.

Robert and Angela are great providers. Thorough, knowledgeable and caring.

Robert is fantastic, but still working on Tinnitus.

This man is an absolute magician and an elite professional at his craft!

In a short 8 to 10 sessions Robert has done the impossible. He’s loosened the very tight muscles in my neck due to many years sitting in front of computers. Amazingly my vertigo is starting to decrease. Robert is the best acupuncturist I know and I’ve seen many over the years including my husband. Well worth the drive.

I have met my health goals after a few months and am feeling a lot better. Definitely notice the benefits after each session.

google

Absolutely love this place. I always feel so welcomed, and it’s always something I look forward to. At first I went mostly for my anxiety, but I’ve noticed energy, digestion and sleep improvements over time too! If you are nervous about needles and acupuncture, I would recommend you try here, they will definitely take care of you and listen to your concerns.

Robert is a great acupuncturist! He knows very how to incorporate eastern western medicine smoothly! Acupuncture connections has been a great connection to my care! Changed my outlook on self care!

The staff is super nice and informative and the clinic is very clean. Acupuncture has helped me in so many ways that medication couldn't. I highly recommend going here especially if you have chronic pain.

I am an acupuncturist and went to school with Robert who was always ahead of everyone else. I went to see him for a shoulder labrum tear which he helped open up mobility, reduce pain and increased tissue healing.. He also helped increased my head rotation, hip flexion and other general good things that come with acupuncture. He loves what he does and it is good for me to know where I can go for my orthopedic injuries.

google

This is my first experience with acupuncture, and the treatment program has exceeded my expectations.

google
google

Robert is great. He treated me over 10 years ago and it really helped. Just recently, when I had some hip tendonitis, I went back to him and it is helping. I would highly recommend him.

google

Robert has been wonderful to work with. His attention to detail is A+. He is not an acupuncturist who just puts needles in and leaves. He uses electric STIM, cupping and other trigger releasing modalities to work with my stiffness and pain. I highly recommend him.

google

Robert is a kind, caring, compassionate healer and I am grateful for his acumen when it comes to acupuncture! I have been suffering with debilitating foot pain for over 7 years and have been to more specialists than I can count. Robert is the first practitioner to see me as a whole person, and not just through the lens of whatever it is that a western medicine degree titles one's specialty. (ie- podiatrists put me in boots and orthotics - I have a closet full of them, and none helped; surgeons only wanted to cut- a peripheral nerve surgeon performed an unnecessary surgery on my foot which only served to increase my pain; and neurologists told me my pain was all in my head.) How refreshing to be seen by someone who really "sees" me! Robert has mapped out a plan for my recovery and for the first time, because of his keen knowledge of the way the human body functions, along with his infectious optimism, I feel optimistic that i will find relief from my pain.

google

I have been going to Robert for a few years on and off. He has successfully treated me for migraine headaches and TMJ from stress. He is now treating me for golfer's elbow. Not only is he knowledgeable and effective, he also has a great bed side manner. I highly recommend him.

google

Absolutely great experience here. Robert is truly great at what he does and Delaney is always super helpful and friendly.

google

I call Robert “the mad scientist.” He figures out puts needles in multiple areas of my body and I walk out a new person. Whatever he does, it works! I highly recommend! It is better than massage or PT or anti-inflammatory medicine by far!
