I had been suffering from sciatica pain for the last 4 months. I experimented with various different treatments all of which cost a lot of money with zero success. This is disappointing. Luckily I came across GenWell Acupuncture. I must say Tara is one of the best acupuncturists in Somers. One of my friends in Mahapoc is taking acupuncture treatment from her. She is also recovering slowly. I noticed a change after 2 sessions. So my advice is if you have sciatica pain go and see Tara G. Almquist.

I have been treated by Tara for just about one year . My initial concern was pain from a torn meniscus. In just a few treatments, I felt solid relief from any knee discomfort. Currently, because of family health history, I wanted to approach my menopausal symptoms in a holistic and hormone free way. Tara suggested she could help…. Low and behold, I am free from hot flashes and sleeping much better. Thank you Tara for your calm demeanor and patience! I am a forever fan

Fabulous "Tara is incredibly gifted in her field. My experience with acupuncture is helping me with an old injury in my hip and knee. She takes time to discover how she can serve you best. The treatment is extremely relaxing and now acupuncture- with Tara- is a procedure I recommend to everybody! If the needles scare you, Tara will put you at ease! "

Tara is an amazing Healer. So knowledgeable and extremely intuitive, She knows just what you need every visit. Tara addresses the body as a whole system including your state of mind so that you feel completely taken care of, out of pain, and rested. I feel as if I have a new outlook on life after every treatment. I highly recommend Tara. She will tune up your soul.

Tara is the best !!!! At my first session I was very nervous, hate the unknown, but i was in pain and i needed to try something different, after couple of minutes I felt so much better, Tara explain to me step by step what she was doing and answer all my million questions, every time I go I learn something new, the all process is so interesting to me and Tara takes the time to explain everything and she has a lot of knowledge, I have been doing acupuncture now for couple of months and i truly forgot what back pain is!!!! It’s now a family thing, my husband and my daughter are also enjoying the benefits of acupuncture, Tara is truly awesome !!!!

Tara is creating a movement:)I was referred to Tara @ GenWell Acupuncture five months ago by a competitive athlete who raved about sports recovery and increased functionality post competition. I was interested in healing post knee surgery and have been a consistent patient of TCM acupuncture. My primary focus for knee recovery and healing was only a sliver of the outcomes experienced from the neurofunctional acupuncture. Tara's approach to client education is by far the best I have EVER received in healthcare. I have learned so much about the neuroscience to a medicine I believed in because of the effective results and now have the research data to support! Every time I visit, I learn even more. This makes me an educated client with better guided choices for my health and wellbeing. I wholeheartedly can place a review that without the treatments and care of Tara, my knee and post surgical recovery would not be progressing. Beyond my initial reason for treatment, I have experienced additional benefits such as decrease in stress tension, increase in restful deep sleep, and overall reports of increase in well being. I am committed to this as a part of my healthy regime. Since becoming a client, I have also referred additional family members. My teenage son, who plays sports and has a competitive academic schedule, has reported significant relief from sports injuries and stress. I share with others this tremendous modality for wellness, health and healing. The application for mental and physical health is outstanding. I am hoping to see Tara further advance her work into mainstream healthcare. Tara is creating a movement:) .

Tara is knowledgeable, professional and caring. She treats the whole person - physically and emotionally. I used to suffer terribly with allergies. With in a few months of treatments, I have experienced a significant decrease in symptoms . Also with Tara’s treatments , I have avoided knee surgery . I highly recommend her.

Tara’s approach to acupuncture is unique and individualized, which is exactly what I needed! She takes all aspects of your health into account in order to create your treatment plan and works tirelessly to make sure that you feel better! Having had experience with traditional acupuncture in the past, I highly recommend Tara and her neurofunctional approach to acupuncture - it was much better suited for my pain management needs!

I had developed chronic and unexplained hamstring pain that was beginning to seriously interfere with my otherwise healthy, active lifestyle. Doctors attributed it to aging (I'm in my 40's) and suggested physical therapy... which I tried, to no avail. Since being in Tara's care I am pain-free with heightened range of motion and flexibility. I am grateful every day for her supreme expertise and healing touch.

Tara is a fantastic acupuncture practitioner. She kindly and patiently listens to you and works hard to address your pain or whatever is ailing you. She doesn’t rush you, or ever diminish your experience. She was able to make recommendations and thoroughly treat pain that months of PT didn’t. I highly recommend Tara!

If you are looking for an acupuncturist,look no further! I consider myself so lucky to have found Tara. She has been a lifesaver, I honestly don’t know where I would be without her. Just a little background info...I have been dealing with chronic pain for the past 4 years after being diagnosed with Charcot Marie Tooth Disease (CMT). This diagnosis came after experiencing a bout of excruciating pain that started in my foot and shot straight up to my hip. The pain was constant. CMT is a genetic, neuromuscular disease that’s progressive and has no cure. It’s a peripheral neuropathy primarily affecting the feet/legs and it’s left me with nerve damage, atrophied muscles, sensory loss and arthritis. I had tried every possible pain management technique recommended to me to no avail (3 surgeries, PT, OT, sympathetic nerve blocks, cortisone shots, medication etc.). The foot-to-hip leg pain never subsided. I later started developing lower back pain as well. It got to the point where there were days I could no longer get out of bed. I should add this all began when I was only 45 years old. That all changed the day I decided to give acupuncture a whirl and started treatment with Tara. She is a miracle worker. She has improved my quality of life immeasurably. I used to have to stop and take a break (putting my legs up) after every errand or minor accomplishment around the house (like washing the dishes). Now thanks to Tara I am much more productive. In fact I even started cooking dinner for my family again! I never used to be able to stand at the stove that long. The best part of it all is that I am now able to spend more quality time with my family, especially my 11 year old daughter. I used to spend the majority of my time lying in my bedroom, in pain. Since I started getting treatment from Tara I am now able to participate in more family activities. My newfound zest for life to Tara. If you are suffering from any type of pain, I strongly suggest you schedule a consultation with Tara. It could very well change your life!

Tara has helped me with back, knees and overall health. I come here 2-3X per month. Tara has helped me with back, knees and overall health by focusing on chronic pain and stress on my body from exercise. She's a great communicator and generous with her time when I need flexiblity. Neuromuscular acupuncture is exactly what I needed to improve my fitness and reach health goals.

She is remarkable. Recently, I've been receiving acupuncture from Tara Almquist. She is remarkable. At the end of each session you almost forget what ailment you were seeking relief from. I highly recommend seeking treatment from Tara in order to avoid any unnecessary surgical procedures.

Wonderful! Tara's acupuncture has been effective for me. Moreover, she has become a trusted health advisor. I recommend her highly.

Pain diminished and overall wellness increased! Tara was able to resolve my pinched nerve pain that went down my leg in a few short months. I also reaped the benefits of increasing my overall wellness. Headaches diminished, back pain neutralized, PMS symptoms greatly reduced. Always feel like I'm in good hands with Tara!

The road to wellness, no medicine required. "Tara has turned my health around. Hot flashes (menopause!) needed cooling down and nagging sciatic aches and twinges that radiate down my leg were of concern. Tara listens carefully and works accupuncture magic! I do not need hormone treatment for menopause and my sciatic/pinched nerve is starting to become a thing of the past. Symptoms presented some time ago. I didn't expect them gone overnight. Perseverance is key when using nontraditional therapy. Thank you Tara!"

Magical "My son has been suffering from migraines for years. In just three treatments, Tara has changed his life. She is so great with children. She takes her time and makes sure he is comfortable before moving on. She explains everything she is doing to him so he can understand it. She built a trust with him so effortlessly. Tara is incredible! She is the angel I was praying for!"

Tara goes above and beyond to make acupuncture a relaxing, positive experience. Tara is extremely knowledgeable in her field and her treatments have been fabulous. I went to her with an existing problem, and she took a great deal of time to discuss every aspect of my health to treat the whole body. My knee is already improved after just a few months. Her treatment is completely relaxing and she always takes the time to talk with me before her treatment. I never feel rushed. It is truly an hour I look forward to! I trust her completely and recommend her highly!

Holistic Healing. L.C.I have only had 2 sessions so far but have already experienced an improvement in the pain of my shoulder. Tara is not only exceptional at acupuncture, but really cares and is knowledgeable about other forms of holistic treatment. I have left the sessions relaxed and confident in her services.

Great service. I have been going to Tara for almost a year now. She is a great woman and knowledgeable! I always feel better when I leave her office. She is flexible and always willing to talk to you to give you helpful advice. I think you need to give her a try.

I highly recommend GenWell Acupuncture. I have been going for several months now. I have multiple issues and not only has the acupuncture been very beneficial but the treatments themselves are deeply relaxing and restorative. Tara is extremely knowledgeable and professional. A big 5 stars for me!!

Neck Pain, Whole Inner Soul Defective. I went to Tara when I was in real bad shape, had a concussion, severe neck pain & my soul was just undone. I also had terrible anxiety from the concussion. She helped me with my neck pain & changed my life as far as helping me to channel my spirit from within & find all the love in my soul for myself. She treats your body as whole not just one part of the body that hurts. I adore her & want her in my life always.

Lower back pain Every Morning. For as long as I can remember, I would wake up every morning with lower back pain. After reading about acupuncture I decided to schedule a visit with Tara. She discovered an old injury that never healed properly which was never detected by medical doctors. After a few sessions with Tara my mornings were pain free. Tara's detailed interview & study of my body and habits provided her with the proper information to heal my body. I am truly thankful for her expertise.

Joint & Muscular Pain. I have a torn meniscus and also am prone to muscular stiffness and cramps. Tara has been a great help with these problems. My pain has been reduced and I feel generally better since I began her treatments. She is a warm and caring health care provider whom I now consider one of my trusted health consultants.

Better quality of life. I have a very fragile and difficult back that is hard to treat even post-spinal fusion. Acupuncture affords me the weekly stability and relief I need to function in all my many and varied activities. Tara Almquist is highly skilled, knowledgeable, smart and an all around warm, lovely human being with a great sense of humor! I giver her and her work my highest recommendation!
