FERTILITY – L.O., 33F
Dylan treated me for infertility first and foremost. I started to see him in August of 2009, was pregnant by September 2009, and saw him through the duration of my pregnancy, about 3 weeks before delivery. He is well informed, thoughtful and consistent. He aims for whole body wellness, and that is what he brought to me. I also suffered from digestive issues that he treated me for.
Most of my pregnancy symptoms were treated successfully by him. You will walk away with a new sense of what acupuncture can do for you by working with Dylan.
IRREGULAR MENSTRUATION – R.K., 29F
I have had irregular menstruation since I was a teenager. I tried all sorts of things to regulate it, including birth control that made me gain weight and lose my hair! Not finding the solution I wanted, I sought out acupuncture and herbs. Dylan has been treating me for almost a year and it has been the most consistent my period has ever been in my life!
Dylan is such a warm and caring individual. I would recommend his services to anyone that is looking for an intelligent, skilled practitioner that provides patient-centered care for the whole person.
I can’t thank you enough for being so good at your job, Dylan! You’re the best!
DIGESTIVE COMPLAINTS – B.S., 33M
I decided to make an appointment with Dylan after having some conversations with him about digestive issues I had been having for a long time. Mainstream medicine was doing nothing for me, multiple doctors visits, over many years without any diagnosis of a problem. They just kept loading me up on medication, none of which ever worked.
After my first visit with Dylan I noticed definite results. The first visit was also very unique. I didn’t know what to expect from an acupuncture treatment, and needless to say I was a little bit nervous about having needles stuck in me, but Dylan put me at ease immediately and the treatment left me feeling great. I returned several times for additional treatments and each time I felt better and better. Each time Dylan took his time to to listen to me and work with me to help improve my health. He was thorough and assessed my condition as an integrated disorder, rather than an isolated one. He even helped me out with an unrelated problem dealing with muscles and a vertebrae in my neck. Thanks Dylan!
I’ve seen a huge improvement in my digestive condition, far more then I ever saw on medication. I would not hesitate to recommend Dylan and August Point Wellness Center to anyone.
One word of advice however, when you have needles in your ear, don’t roll your head to the side…ouch! Haha…
BACK PAIN & SCIATICA – J.J., 56F
I visited Dylan for my back pain and sciatica. I had suffered from this constant daily pain for about 12 years. I had seen a chiropractor and a physician previously with no success. I then decided to try medical massage therapy. I didn’t put much stock in massage, but everything else that I had tried didn’t work. The August Point Wellness website was very informative and Dylan seemed knowledgeable. I decided to visit his office to see what he could do for me.
With just the first treatment, I woke up the next morning with NO PAIN! It was amazing! I had 3 more treatments and I’ve been feeling great ever since. The only thing I regret is not seeing him sooner.
Dylan is a great advocate for alternative care. He was willing to explain my problem to me and help me on my way to being pain free. Next time I’m in pain, I won’t hesitate to see him again.
Thanks August Point Wellness!
NECK PAIN (Auto Accident) – C.F., 62F
Since I was rear-ended by a drunk driver 20 years ago, I have suffered from chronic and often debilitating head, neck, and back pain. Following the crash I underwent three separate anterior cervical fusion surgeries to stabilize my neck. My spine was fused between levels C4 and C7. These surgeries left me with a restricted range of motion which seriously diminished my quality of life.
Over the past 20 years I have tried various therapeutic treatments, including physical therapy, biofeedback, pain management, massage therapy, and pool therapy. I have been prescribed many strong medications to control pain and inflammation. I have experienced various degrees of improvement, but nothing has provided a long lasting solution.
In January of 2011 I decided to go off the Oxycodone I had been dependent on for many years. As a result my pain level increased while my functional capability decreased. I tried non-narcotic pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, but had only marginal success.
Consequently I was sent to a physiatrist for a consult. He suggested I try acupuncture for pain relief. I quite frankly thought that it wouldn’t make much of a difference, but I thought, “What the heck—I’ve tried everything else.” I contacted Dylan Jawahir at August Point Wellness on June 1, 2011. My experience with him has been remarkable.
From the first consult with Dylan, I felt a strong connection. He explained that he thought acupuncture, combined with massage, would be beneficial. He seemed confident that I could decrease my pain level, increase range of motion, and enjoy considerable improvement in my quality of life. Dylan demonstrated from the beginning that he cares for, connects with, and understands his patients’ concerns. For two months I have seen Dylan on a regular basis for acupuncture and massage. The first few weeks were pretty tough for me to work through the discomfort. Dylan encouraged me to “stay with it.” He assured me that the pain level would decrease. To my amazement, within the next few weeks I began to feel some improvement. My mood improved, and I felt generally hopeful and optimistic. I began to do some of the activities that I had previously abandoned because of pain issues. Over the next few weeks my quality of life improved significantly. I now spend less time napping in the afternoons and more time engaging in positive and fulfilling activities.
I’m still working on increasing my range of motion. My dependence on narcotics is behind me. My pain level is now manageable on non-narcotic pain relievers. I see Dylan for occasional “fine tuning” of my neck muscles through acupuncture and massage.
After twenty years I am finally getting my life back! I am very pleased with the results I am experiencing in connection with August Point Wellness, and I look forward to continuing improvement.
BACK PAIN (Sports Injury) – E.B., 16F
My daughter took an elbow to the back in a soccer game. Weeks of back pain sent us to 2 chiropractors who could not help. Pain gone for a day or two but always back again. First acupuncturist diagnosed milk allergies (red herring). Again, relief for a day or two but not lasting.
Dylan was recommended by a friend. Almost immediately he identified an injured muscle and applied a combination of acupuncture, massage to correct the problem. His massage experience has given him a great foundation in body mechanics to enhance his acupuncturist’s understanding of body systems.
My daughter looked forward to her visits and the excellent discussions they had about how a body works.
Thank you Dylan!
HIP, LOWER BACK & KNEE PAIN (Osteoarthritis of the hip) – S.T., 67F
Recently I became incapacitated with severe pain in my left hip, lower back and knee. I was unable to walk, sleep, or participate in any of my customary activities. As usual, I sought conventional medical support. After being diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis of the left hip (with a second verifying opinion,) I was scheduled for hip replacement surgery. However, since I had a three week vacation to Europe already scheduled, I began trying everything that conventional medicine provided to make this trip, including appointments with my primary care physician, an orthopedic surgeon, a chiropractor, along with physical therapy, and a new exercise regime. I did not experience any progress.
It was not until I contacted Dylan Jawahir at August Point Wellness Center, and began treatment with him that I began to exhibit consistent improvement. After seven weeks of acupuncture and therapeutic massage treatments, I was able to go on vacation pain free and, on my return from vacation, cancel my scheduled hip replacement surgery.
Dylan Jawahir provided exemplary support. He was extremely well informed and well trained. He listened carefully to feedback regarding my issues, addressed each one thoroughly using his therapies, and helped me design a more appropriate exercise routine. I not only progressively improved, but I learned a lot about my body that will help me maintain my improvement.
I have referred several friends, who have had similar experiences with conventional medicine, to Dylan Jawahir. My experience has taught me that it is very wise to keep an open mind regarding alternative types of treatment. I would not be participating in my usual lifestyle without Dylan Jawahir’s intervention.
