I have been a migraine sufferer for twenty five years. On average I used to have twelve to fourteen headaches per month. My primary care physician sent me to more than one neurologist. I was treated with various medications and mood elevators. I eliminating certain foods and wine from my diet. Nothing worked. Headaches ran my life. I missed out on many “fun activities” due to them. Finally, I tried acupuncture in the spring of 2006. I was skeptical at first. The thought of having someone putting needles into my head, right where my pain was, didn’t seem very logical, but I had nothing to lose. I was at my wits end.

After several sessions with Heidi Hughett at Acupuncture of New England, my headaches decreased in number and in severity. As my treatment continued, my progress improved. I’m not sure I will ever be totally migraine free, but I am now able to live and enjoy life. On days when I do have a migraine, I call on Ms. Hughett and, if she’s available, she can usually relieve my pain within minutes. I no longer take any medication. I can truly say that I am a healthy and happier person today and that is due to Acupuncture of New England and to the ministrations of Heidi Hughett.

Before I came to Acupuncture of New England, I had been struggling for almost two years with menopause symptoms, especially insomnia. Night after night I would wake up between two and three in the morning and be unable to sleep deeply after that. I tried everything but prescription sleeping pills – I just did not want to become addicted to sleep aids but I was becoming discouraged and believed that I was never going to have a good night’s sleep again. Needless to say, my sleepless nights also led to weary days and lack of energy and focus. My husband had experienced fantastic results for some muscle damage through Heidi’s treatments and I thought that maybe she could help me. After only a handful of treatments, I began to sleep through the night regularly. It was absolutely amazing! It’s been almost two years now and I continue to sleep well. I visit Heidi every 6-8 weeks to keep me from falling back into the cycle of waking up in the middle of the night. My energy has returned and I feel so much better. Heidi made a tremendous difference in my life and I am so grateful!

I am so impressed with Brittany. I first reached out to her because I was experiencing vertigo a week before I was supposed to leave on vacation. She was so accommodating and fit me in as soon as possible to help with my symptoms. I swear she cured me!! And I was trying everything to get rid of it. It was my first time trying acupuncture and she really took the time to listen to my symptoms, explain the treatment process, and made me feel very comfortable. She even checked in a day later to see how I was feeling. I have been back twice since then (one for a follow up for the vertigo and most recently for some anxiety) and I always leave feeling AMAZING!! I would highly recommend Brittany and her practice.

After receiving surgery for a broken collarbone I was left with numbness and tingling in my left arm and hand. Brittany has​ done an amazing job taking a therapeutic approach at recovery through acupuncture. The results are great and I feel an improvement after each appointment. I would highly recommend Brittany for any and all acupuncture needs.
