My wife and I moved from Michigan in the U.S. to escape the cold of winter and the dreadful heat in summer. Boquete's climate is just about perfect for us, never too cold and never too hot. My wife Kathleen has some health issues that were never really addressed in the U.S. by our western doctors. She is a type two diabetic. Her lower legs were swollen and discolored with a rough leathery texture to them. The doctors all said yes they certainly are and totally ignored them as far as treatment goes. It wasn't until we got to Boquete and decided to give acupuncture a try that we met Mark Perren Jones at the Isla Verde Spa. Mark said lets give it go and we started the treatments. After the second treatment I noticed the discoloration begin to fade and the swelling started to recede. Since then Kathy has been going about once a week and her legs show continuing improvement. The skin on her legs was so tight they felt like hard rubber and the swelling so bad you couldn't even tell she had ankles. Now they are soft to the touch, the discoloration has all but gone away and she has ankles again. Mark is a wonder and has since added Kathy's anxiety and the pain in her shoulders as targets of his acupuncture treatments. She is showing signs of continued improvement, so I'm telling all of you out there if you have a health issue not being addressed by your modern doctors, by all means give Mark a chance to show you what acupuncture can do for you, we did and are very glad that we did. I went ahead and scheduled Kathy for a once a week regiment of acupuncture treatments to be continued indefinitely. It is a natural way to help your body to heal itself and Mark and his staff are both pleasant and accommodating.
