I have seen Dorothy for help in alleviating my back pain. The treatment consists of acupuncture in various points in the ear-- (seems weird but it works!) that correspond to areas of your body. She uses a 'pointer' that shows where your painful areas are and she'll find spots that you didn't even realize were sore until she points them out! Dorothy has treated my back, hips and feet--and I leave feeling relaxed and my pain is reduced if not entirely gone. Even if you don't have pain, but need an hour to yourself just to reduce stress levels, a treatment will leave you feeling unbelievably calm and rejuvenated. I highly recommend it!
I highly recommend Dorothy Gamble to provide auricular acupuncture . She is very professional and has an innate sense as to the points to treat for maximum benefit. I have experienced her work and feel increased energy , clarity and a general sense of well being after her session. She is gentle and direct and has a solid medical nursing background. I look forward to many more healing sessions with Dorothy in the future.
Many Thanks !

This letter is to express my gratitude for the acupuncture work that was done on my 16 year old son. I decided to try this type of therapy as my son started suffering from migraine headaches with no prior history of being prone to headaches. I was beside myself sick with worry as my son had a brain tumor removed at the age of three, and though there was no proof that the tumor was surfacing once again, the headaches were relentless and were not triggered by any specific activity.
When I decided to try the acupuncture for the first time, there was very little improvement and when Dorothy suggested I bring my son back, it was after the second treatment that there was a significant improvement. We became very hopeful and my son was returning to his old self again. After the next couple of sessions the headaches became a rare occurrance to being completely non existent.
I could not have been more thankful and relieved. That was almost a year ago.....
For me it was comforting that this particular specialist had an extensive medical background.
I have suffered from anxiety for many years and came off my medication four months ago. In preparation for coming off and staying off my medication, one of the supports in place is acupuncture treatment by Dorothy. Having never experienced acupuncture before, Dorothy makes me feel comfortable. Dorothy is very professional and keeps me informed throughout each session as to what to expect. Acupuncture has been a very important and much needed support as I continue my journey to living medication free.
I have known Dorothy both personally and professionally for 35 years! Throughout these years I have witnessed holistic growth in all realms of her life. Her recent professional venture into auricular acupuncture is an apt endeavor.
I experienced an amazing auricular acupuncture treatment by Dorothy this spring. The treatment environment was calming and the treatment targeted exactly what I needed at the time. I had an enormous emotional release, for days afterwards. I was given the opportunity to journal and process this experience after the needles were removed, enhancing my insight while unburdening unwelcome emotions.
This modality of treatment resonates with my medical background in nursing, and my longtime practice as a Mental Health Clinician. Auricular Acupuncture encompasses my philosophical beliefs and personal values, congruent with complementary health practices. I highly recommend this healing modality with Dorothy, for its therapeutic value in the treatment of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual issues.

Dorothy is very gifted and highly intuitive with her assessment and application skills. The body talks and Dorothy listens with that extra sense! The treatments are very effective, both with the needles and laser and I believe I moved through my sciatic issues in 12 weeks as opposed to 12 months or longer (for many it's never corrected) due to the regular treatments I received. I have had traditional body acupuncture treatments and find auricular acupuncture much more powerful for stimulating the healing process of the body.

Dorothy's auricular acupuncture treatments have been very effective in relieving my back, neck and SI joint pain. Recently she has combined auricular acupuncture with laser therapy to help in the healing of my knee pain. Dorothy is very professional, listens well and works with you to find the most effective treatment. I would highly recommend Dorothy.

I saw Dorothy hoping she could help me with an ongoing Plantar Fasciitis /foot issue that I had been dealing with for at least 5 months….and she delivered!!
When I first got this condition I went the usual route and saw my Doctor who referred me to a foot specialist, I received a prescription for creams, got new foot wear, was referred to a very good physiotherapist who put me on an exercise routine, taped my foot, this was all very good advice but after an expensive 2 months plus of appointments, new shoes and no real relief I was discouraged as I wasn’t seeing any real improvement. Then there was talk of perhaps a cortisone shot which I really didn’t want to entertain….it was going to be my last resort.
SO… I chatted with Dorothy and she explained to me about her laser treatment and how it may be effective with my condition. I had three sessions with Dorothy and to my amazement my condition changed dramatically for the better…I couldn’t believe it…I could walk on my foot without the pain I had felt for months! It was truly amazing that within two weeks I felt relief and immediate improvement. Thank you Dorothy!! I will definitely recommend you to anyone suffering from Plantar Fasciitis or any other ailments your Laser treatment can help with. THANKS AGAIN!!
