Testimonials

Dr. Laura is absolutely wonderful.  I recent began chemotherapy for breast cancer and my head was in the clouds feeling like it was hanging from a string.  After a beautiful tailored just for me treatment my head finally felt reattached.  Immediately after I felt a great positivity, clarity, and relaxed feeling which is exactly what I had communicated that I needed.  Dr. Laura listens to you and understands completely what you are looking for and every treatment is different depending on what you need.  Previously I had gone to her for terrible back pain I had had and she was able to clear that up after only two meetings.  I will continue to see her during my new journey to help me to continue to feel my best.  Thank you to Dr. LAURA and her daughter for giving me the best care.

She is a calming, healing force in my life! My husband and I are having great success ambulating after our treatments. We both have “bad knees” and are feeling so much better since starting treatment with Dr. Laura and this is why I want to encourage you to see for yourself!

We are amazed to be walking so well, especially myself, I was very dependent on my cane and now it is sitting in the corner! Thank you Dr. Laura!

Dr. Laura Ana Bertoncini is the best in Florida for accupuncture for more than just back pain…..to bad some insurance doesn’t cover it. Dr. Laura doesn’t just treat the back pain she treats the body as a whole and it does work. Dr Laura is compassionate and and she listens. Her hands are a gift that are guided by a higher up and she loves what she does and she does it beautifully. I thank her for all the help she has given me. Xoxo Claire

I’d like to begin by saying thank you Dr Laura for all you’ve done for me. You are truly a remarkable person. I have lived with an auto immune disease, and chronic neck pain from a very young age, I am now a senior citizen. After many painful shots in my neck and head, and very heavy medications which did not help, I decided to try acupuncture I was very drawn to Dr. Laura.I called for an appointment and she saw me that evening. When I entered her office I immediately felt the the cheerful energy, and her caring attitude. I knew even before my treatment i had made the right, decision and I truly did. I felt so much better, after just one treatment.You must experience Dr. Laura’s unique treatment of acupuncture, It’s amazing!! I am now happy and enjoying my senior, years Feeling young and wonderful again, I decided to try Dr. Laura’s face lift. It really works. I was told I needed eye lid surgery so I could read better, well I no longer need the surgery. I’ve gotten so many complements! Thank you Dr. Laura You are forever in my heart.

 

Dr. Laura is truly a HEALER!!! I was very skeptical but also at my wits end by the time I finally found her. After the very 1st treatment I felt like a brand new woman!!! I have spent the last 6yrs of my life in pure AGONY! Seeing the most caring PCP, GI specialist and Rheumatologist I’ve ever met and that in itself speaks volumes seeing how I work in the medical field with physician’s on a daily basis….. And they all told me the same exact thing when I walked into their offices just as Dr. Laura did too, “Sweetie you are WAY TOO YOUNG TOO HAVE SO MANY CHRONIC MEDICAL DISEASE PROCESSES AND ISSUES AT YOUR AGE!!!” But thanks to Dr. Laura, I’m finally seeing the light and all it took was ONE SESSION!! I’m 3 sessions in at this point in time, my children, family, friends and co-workers all see a difference in so many ways. I’m no longer a slave to my bed, I can get out about and do everything I need to do pain free daily. Things I would have to spread out and do over a week’s time rather then one afternoon!! Thank you Dr. Laura & staff, I’m forever grateful to you for giving me my life BACK!!!

Wow! wow! wow! I have never felt this good! Dr. Laura is one in a million. The combination of Reiki and acupuncture is different and more effective than anything I have ever tried. My appetite, which was ravenous is tamed, my knees which need replacing and kept me up all night, are not in pain!!! Next, I am going to try the acupuncture face lift… The results look amazing. I can’t get enough! lol

Dr. Laura is such a positive addition to our community.  She is upbeat, friendly and knows how to cure what ails you without prescription medications.  When my 75-year-old mother visited from Michigan with aches and pains, I took her to Dr. Laura right away.  She felt better immediately and now looks forward to regular visits for acupuncture whenever she is in the area.

—Dawn E, Spring Hill, FL-May 2015

Dr Laura is a Top Notch Professional. I trust her with my family and friends and she will always give you an honest and fair accounting of your medical condition.  I highly recommend Dr Laura.

Her and her staff welcomes you with a very warm greeting and refreshments upon arrival. She has succeeded in my fertility and weight loss journey and will return! Thank you Dr. Laura!

The most amazing Reiki Master and acupuncturist in the state of Florida……wise beyond her years and caring and compassionate.  Has helped me with pain and other problems. I’m really going to miss her when I leave and hope I can take all she has taught me to make a difference in my life……Thank you Dr. Laura.

Claire Orlowski-March 2015

Dr. Laura has changed my life! The acupuncture treatments have gotten my body back in balance and relieved all the pain I had in my hands and back. She has relieved my edema and the tingling in my big toes.

I have, also, had 7 acupuncture face lift treatments, and my friends do a double take when they see me. I look at least 10 years younger. There are no more wrinkles in my forehead; my eyebrows are higher and my eyes are now wide open; my lips are fuller and firmer; the deep lines from the bottom of my nose down to my mouth (aka marionette lines) are nearly gone. She is now going to work on my chin and neck area next.

Along with all this, she has me avoiding dairy, peanuts, bread, etc. Now the bags under my eyes have disappeared, the congestion is gone, and I have not had to take an allergy pill in 3 months that I have been in her care.

Dr. Laura is a brilliant acupuncture physician and diagnostician. Her positive energy and compassion make her truly great…..one in a million!

I developed Bell’s palsy on April 10, 2014. I was told that an acupuncturist would be able to help me. I went to an acupuncturist four times and saw no improvement at all. Then it was recommended that I go to Dr. Laura’s Acupuncture and Holistic practice for help. On my first trip to Dr. Laura, after my first acupuncture treatment, I finally felt relief from pain, and I could the difference immediately in my face immediately. I have gone to Dr. Laura five times and the results have been so quick. Now I am down to going every two weeks to her. My face looks so close to normal, that if you did not know I had Bell’s palsy, you would never know I had it by looking at my face. I am nearly done with my treatments. She is so kind and knew exactly what to do to give me immediate relief. Dr. Laura is such a caring person. She stays in the room with you, because she uses Reiki healing in conjunction with the acupuncture. I am so thankful that I found Dr. Laura!

I would like to thank Dr. L. Bertoncini for changing my life. I would not have thought I would ever get acupuncture of any kind done. Did not really know much about it and really could not see how this could work sticking you with needles? But you do not have to believe it will work for it to work that is the good thing Ha. Well I was having trouble sleeping after a few sessions I now sleep like a baby and if I wake up during the night I go right back to sleep with no problem before if woke up it would take three to four hours to maybe go back to sleep. Dr. Bertoncini worked on my whole body with the acupuncture to balance the body and it sure works great. Also I have wrinkles on my forehead I did get fillers in Dec.2009. So Dr. Bertoncini said that she could help with this so she did acupuncture on my face .I had deep wrinkles after six sessions they are so very faint hardly noticeable. Because of the toxin fillers still in my forehead at first the area the needle was put in would swell up and form a bump but would go down by the next day it hurt a little just in that area. Dr. Bertoncini said it was because of the filler still in my forehead. well we did the seventh session and it does not hurt anymore and does not swell up and I am looking good and never felt so good . I am not tired and have way more energy I fell better mentally and physically. Thank you Dr. Bertoncini for changing my life. Dr. Bertoncini does her work with a passion she really loves what she does chang

I just wanted to write and give a testimonial for my 11 year old daughter who has been receiving acupuncture since she was 8 months old. For the past 5 years I’ve had to wrestle with her,in order for her to get a treatment. She’s been so afraid of the needles. I brought her to Dr. Laura and not only did the treatment really relieve/cure her sinus infection, but she told me afterwards, “Mom, the needles didn’t hurt at all, and I really like Dr. Laura. I will come back and get a treatment any time”.

Dr. Laura, your treatments are amazing. You really care about your patients and you love what you do. I know this because you have also treated me, and I know exactly what my daughter is talking about. the atmosphere at your office is very soothing and relaxing, and your healing energy comes right through. Thanks for all that you do!

This is a note to anyone in pain When I showed up the first time to see the Dr. for acupuncture, I had know idea what to expect. I could not walk and was using an electric scooter to move around. After about one month, I was useing a walker with wheels. Now after nine months, I am walking on my own and praise Dr. Bertoncini for all her hard work on me. With prayer and the Lords help also.

God Bless you Dr. Bertoncini

Although as a young man-I was very vigorous and very interested in sex. As I got older I saw my ability and libido decline.
When I reached my mid fifties I began to take Viagra and other popular stimulants.
Viagra worked for a short time but I had to take more and more of it. Finally I saw a urologist who told me I was taking a dangerously high dosage.
He recommended injections which also worked for a short time.
Finally, as reached my sixties (my marriage failing) childless and alone. I chanced on Dr. Laura.
I was struck by her compassion and her friendly attitude. Since my treatments began my stamina has increased remarkable!

He visited Dr. Laura’s Acupuncture & Holistic Practice AP 2812 MM 28386 on Wednesday and again today, and she took great care of him. Acupuncture is virtually painless – Del was so relaxed he was snoring in no time! Best of all, his jaw is now pain free!

Dear Dr. B.

I wanted to tell you just how much you have helped me. I never dreamed I would have gone to a acupuncturist. The only other option I had was surgery, I did not want to go that route. I will admit I was a little apprehensive when I first walked in, but you may me feel safe. You were very thorough with your screening and very honest when you answered my questions. My first treatment was so great, I felt better then when I first walked in. The treatments after were better and better, I felt such an improvement in my body, no pain, I had energy, my body was in balance. I started working out again. You gave me my life back. I feel safe just knowing you are there if I need you again. I promise I will not wait to come back in and see you if I feel my energy and well being starting to slip. You are the best, and I am so happy my apprehensive about acupunture did not win out.

Kindest regards,
Nancy

It been a little over a month since my last treatment and I am happy to say things are good. While I still “go” more frequently than norm the extreme urgency part of my over active bladder (OAB) problem seems to be resolved. I am going to contact the local pin and grin guy (Dr. Ahn MD, AP) and see if the entire problem can be resolved with additional treatments. You have made a acupuncture true believer out of me. Thank you

I have continued to lose weight and am now down to 210. We are continuing with the diet but Omnifast is not sold in our area so we have had to modify the diet to accommodate this little problem.

Just had a blood series done and my Cholesterol is 119mg/dl (normal is 120-200). A1C was 6.3 which is down significantly from last October when it was 10. Thanks . I intend to keep at until I regain a svelte 145 pounds or until I have regained my boyish figure Winking smile.

I hope this note finds you all are in good health and happy.

My name is John O’Brien. I am a sceptic. I’ve never bought into the holistic stuff, I don’t own a dream catcher and I don’t care if my vegetables were fertilized with chicken poop or miracle grow. That being said, I am now a huge fan of acupuncture. I have suffered with back pain for years. Recently I was in so much pain that I could barely get in my truck. A family member stopped by my office and introduced me to Laura Bertoncini. She immediately noticed that I was in pain and offered to help. I thanked her and politely declined. She said “what do you have to lose?” and being somewhat rational and very much in pain, I took her up on her offer. At the end of the first treatment, my pain was reduced by 90%. I was amazed. How could a few painless pin sticks help me so much? She followed up with two more treatments. I have been totally pain free for six months now. I don’t know if it works like this for everyone but I am so thankful for her help. I have advised her to give my phone number to any other sceptic who needs to hear it from someone who has personal experience. Don’t suffer when you can be helped. What have you got to lose?

I have been going to Dr B. for about 8 months now and have had amazing results. I decided to try acupuncture because I had been dealing with anxiety for a few years now and no longer wanted to take medication for it. It has worked wonders in controlling my anxiety. I am now doing acupuncture to help me sleep better which has also been working just as well. I would recommend Dr B. to anyone the results have been great and I am thankful for her help!

Due to a disc problem in my neck, I suffer from chronic neck pain and headaches. I have utilized acupuncturists previously and gotten some relief, but never to the degree I have gotten with Dr. Bertoncini. Dr. Bertoncini, who combines Reiki with her treatments, gave me immediate relief from my first visit and sustained relief (at about an 85% improvement level,) over the three months I was a patient. Dr. Bertoncini treats the whole person, she takes the time to explain what she is doing and why and has a great “bedside manner.” I highly recommend Dr. Bertoncini to anyone serious about seeking pain relief.

“At the age of 13 I had 2 spinal surgeries for scoliosis that has left me in chronic pain. After 10 years of trying every method out there, I finally decided to give acupuncture a try. I was stunned by how much relief I instantly felt from such a minimal, yet relaxing procedure.

Dr. Laura Bertoncini is extremely knowledgeable and has been able to almost completely reverse the pain that my scoliosis has caused for so long. My mobility, pain level, and emotional state have all gotten better and my everyday life has finally become manageable again.”

I have frequently recommended Laura’s Acupuncture & Holistic Practice to my chronic pain patients. In fact, I keep her cards available at the front desk for easy referral.

However, beyond a general recommendation, I can speak to my personal experience. After straining my back while caring for a patient suffering from frequent falls I sought “Dr. B” for treatment. I found the office environment to be soothing, and the staff courteous and professional. After the first treatment I felt some temporary immediate relief. Following the second treatment I noticed a definite decrease in my overall pain level. Since my third treatment I am nearly pain free.

Finding a non-medicinal approach to the treatment of chronic pain (that works!) is an essential part of caring for patient’s suffering from chronic pain. It helps to prevent the overuse of medication and promotes the overall health and well being of the patient

Dr. Laura!!

Thank you very much for the pictures. I haven’t had a chance to respond because I ended up stopping by my mother’s house to see her new car yesterday afternoon. Then, when I spoke to you, I had just walked in.

What a difference your facial accupuncture has made! Mark noticed it last night, how funny, right?

I think these pictures really show the difference even more than the other ones. It’s amazing how these small changes can make such a huge difference. I really do appreciate you very much, I just want you to know that!!
You have helped me to gain more confidence in my appearance. I still want to continue losing the weight, and
being off of sugar is helping. I still have very little in coffee and like one cookie now and then.

My checks come in on the 22nd of every month. I want to buy some of that chocolate. It might be something
I can buy about every 3 or 4 months because I will get fat on it, ha-ha.

Take care, and thanks for the de-toxification, too! ———– Charmaine

I have been getting treated by Dr. Laura for 2 months now and my headaches have …stopped and she helped me with being able to walk better. Even prevented me having to go in for more operations. I highly recommend her!
