I had been treated with acupuncture about 25 years ago in the Boston area. I live in Florida now, and in February of 2017, I was very stressed and my fibro myalgia was causing constant pain. I thought it was time for treatment again. After acupuncture treatment with Martha Pelletier... Read more »
I have known Martha of the East/West Heath Center for five years. From the very beginning, she worked to get to know how best to naturally correct that out-of-sorts feeling I call being “all crooked.” She listens to you and literally pinpoints the problem areas. I leave with an overwhelming... Read more »
I called Martha because I was not satisfied with the acupuncturist I was seeing. She fit me in right away and I was immediately impressed by her knowledge and her blending of new technology with traditional treatment. In addition, she advises me on handling stress and even got me a... Read more »
I was tired of the doctors prescribing pills and more pills with no options, so I decided to seek out acupuncture to see if I would receive any benefit at all.
I had been experiencing digestive issues.
After the very first treatment, I had a profound positive reaction. I no longer had pain,... Read more »
“My Ship Finally Came In— But I Fell Off Of It!”

I want to thank you for the relaxation. With owning a new club, relaxation has been a very difficult thing for me to do. I need to find that peace that will sustain me through difficult days. I greatly appreciate your support! A big Hug!

After 4 months of trying to conceive without any success, I turned to eastern medicine... Read more »
When I called the East West Health Center, my husband and I had been trying to conceive for more than one year. At age 36 I was considered of “advanced maternal age” and had spent the previous six months visiting reproductive specialists and on Clomid. My husband and I had... Read more »
On March 9th 2006, I had a heart attack. For a few weeks before and after the event I was sleeping in 2½ hour increments. I told Martha about the problem and she treated me with acupuncture. That day for the first time in ages I felt normal, grounded and... Read more »
You have helped my body, sick and slowly disintegrating back to the road of homeostasis and I am so grateful. You are a very caring person-what a breath of fresh air. People like you are a rarity and you are VERY APPRECIATED!!

Healthy eating tips for the summer are a little tricky.
Since the weather is warm, you need light, cooling foods. Juicy peaches, sweet watermelons, tomatoes hot off the vine… The right foods are easy to find. One trip through your garden or a walk through a farmer’s market and you’ll have the perfect summer meal.
But since you’re outside exercising
I’m a lucky acupuncturist.
I work with wonderful people every day and I get to hear your stories, celebrate when you get well and watch your families grow up.
I always try to think of ways to improve your health but suddenly it occurred to me—there is one way I haven’t yet helped you.

Many people feel down as winter approaches. It’s dark. It’s cold. The holidays can be stressful.
But for some people every winter is unbearable. They’re tired and depressed. They don’t want to get out of bed. They snap at their families and binge on junk food.

If you live in a rainy area, the odds are pretty good that your automobile will develop some body damage over its lifetime. Does this mean that you never wash your car because it’s going to rust out anyway? Of course it doesn’t. If you care about your car, it means that you’ll fight extra hard to protect your investment.
What does it mean to be healthy? Health is a state of optimum physical functioning, spiritual enlightenment, social well-being, and mental aptitude. True health is so much more than settling for mediocrity. It’s not about living life just barely above the doldrums, or hoping against hope that you won’t get sick or that you’ll finally feel better.
