I have been a patient since fall 2009. I had severe sciatica. After the second treatment I was able to sleep and the pain began to ease. The treatments also reduced most of the numbness in my feet. In fact, one foot is almost fully recovered. With the advice of Julie I also made it through the winter months completely healthy. I have recommended AcuCare to my friends. They have also agreed with me after their treatments.

“Julie is an asset to Royal Caribbean. In addition to being excellent at acupuncture, she

makes her clients feel comfortable and very cared for. It was a pleasure to have her facial

“I had always been both afraid and skeptical of acupuncture. However, always being

capable of being active, a recent injury to my neck had left my left arm in agonizing pain.

Even with all my pain medications I found myself unable to sleep and walking the decks

each morning at 3 am. I was so miserable I decided to consult with the Acupuncturist.

Julie was so warm and genuinely concerned that I figured it was worth the cost to give

it a try. After all I had nothing to lose by time and money and at this point my level of

pain was so terrible, it didn’t matter. After my first session I felt relief, not complete but

I was able to sleep five hours which I hadn’t done in weeks and enjoy myself shopping

in St. Maarten. My second session brought even more relief and I was amazed along

with my family who were also onboard and had seen my pain levels. After my third

session I laughed and told Julie that I thought I was addicted. The level of relief is almost

unbelievable and I sleep completely through the night. But I think it’s more than just the

treatment – it’s the overall experience. It’s so relaxing and Julie is so warm and caring.

Giving complete attention to each patient with a level of true care – concern that is rarely

seen. She is knowledgable in her field and explains everything, every step of the way. I

wish I could take her home with us. But to anyone considering acupuncture, I implore

you to take the time to sit and consult with Julie. You won’t be disappointed. Julie –

gratefully yours.”

“Wanting to lose weight, I had 10 treatments and slept through most of them. I

immediately felt energized and never hungry. I lost 2.5 kilograms and never skipped a

meal! Julie is always highly professional, a great teacher and has a warm personality. I

recommend this to anyone who wants to lose weight. It is painless!”

“When I came on this ship I wasn’t able to walk. I tried acupuncture now I’m able to

walk, dance, workout at the gym. It worked for me, no more pain. Three days now I’m on

top of the world. Thank-you!”

Ben Devane

“I am most grateful for the acupuncture treatment you gave me this week. I have had

back pain for quite awhile and have attempted to remedy it with massage therapy,

chiropractor services and various doctors. Thus far, you have been the most helpful. I

also appreciate your professionalism, your promptness and the seriousness with which

you handle each case. Liberty of the Seas is fortunate to have you in practice on board.”

“I’ve had chronic pain in the Right leg for one year, which I assumed was the result of

trying to improve my golf swing. My self correction was athletic supports on my knee/

thigh/ankle and NSAIDs to reduce the pain, with limited success. As luck would have

it, we became aware of your practice and thought to give it a try, and we did, and it’s

working. Thank-you Dr. Julie.”

David Halloran

“I have had MS for 35 years. My right Leg is “bitterly dead” but painful. It cramps and

wakes us up in the night. It ruins my life. Julie has removed the pain from the entire

leg in 4 sessions. IT IS A MIRACLE. I have a bladder problem (overactive) and this

disappeared. I have an implant and patches I wear, and these do not work. My bladder

has been fine on the trip. Now the face….. Too many smiley deep lines – voila – the lines

are turning into babies. I have worn bangs for 30 years. I now for two nights worn my

hair straight back and people are saying what’s going on – you have such a small pretty

face. I was pretty until a few months ago – all hell broke loose – Now Julie has put me

back on track. I wanted to come back to her in Europe in April for more treatments. We

have before and after pictures. Wanted more treatments but you’re booked.”

Pam Olt

“First time for acupuncture treatments. Total of three this week. Excellent practitioner,

would recommend Julie to any potential client. Very impressed with the treatment and

the results. Thank you very much.”

Leonard Martin

“Julie is professional in all regards. I enjoyed her pleasant demeanor. She explained the

procedure which calmed my fear of needles. I recommend the treatment and Julie as a

practitioner of this art and science. All the best in the future, thanks for your help with the
