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 at the East West Health Center, I can happily say I am so much better now. The stress is gone…which really helps the fibro. I do not wake up in... 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 sense of wellness. You can, too.
If ever you find the issues of the world bogging you down, try an hour with the folks at East/West. Consider it a gift... 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 birthday card! Her treatment has kept my disc pain well under control and I always feel better when I leave her office both physically and emotionally. She is an exceptional... 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, nausea and overall lethargy. The benefits of the acupuncture were amazing and I especially liked that no drugs were involved. Martha is patient, taking her time to really get to the... Read more »
“My Ship Finally Came In— But I Fell Off Of It!”
Someday that will be the name of my book; it is so true & part of my life. 4 ½ years ago, I was cooking on an ocean-going tug & barge for a crew of 7-15 men. One morning while climbing down the side of the barge, my footing slipped. I fell almost 30 feet and was impaled on the handrail of the tug, causing 7 or 8 ribs... Read more »
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!

I suffered a second trimester miscarriage in my first pregnancy. After extensive testing, my doctor could offer me no explanations as to why it had happened or what I could do to prevent a reoccurrence. After 4 months of trying to conceive without any success, I turned to eastern medicine for fertility. I was hoping that acupuncture could help me to conceive a baby and carry it to term. I set up a consultation with Martha. I felt very comfortable... 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 exhausted many of the treatments available to us and were beginning to consider assisted reproduction options. After the first conversation with Ms. Kokajko, I could tell that she was not... 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 centered; that night I slept nine hours. I awoke totally refreshed and a well being.
Thank you Martha!

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!!

More than Needles: 3 Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapies You Can Do at Home
If you asked the average person how Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) keeps you healthy, they would probably answer that it uses acupuncture needles.
