I have tried acupuncture for years and Tom Ingegno is one of the best!
Tom really puts you at ease by listening to your needs and explaining every step of the treatment. I highly recommend visiting Tom.
I always describe my first visit to Tom as "I limped in and walked home."
Tom has been great in helping me get sciatica under control, relieving tension in my iliotibial band, and reducing stress. Definitely would recommend him to anyone in the Baltimore area.
I’ve had acupuncture in the past in various settings, so I think it’s fair to say that I’m rather picky about my practitioners. I found Tom to be very knowledgeable and skillful. He does a great job explaining the theory (if you want to learn more, which I do) and listening to your symptoms. I find that he truly cares for his patients. As a plus, the location is also very easy to get to and in a safe location, which is always a plus in Baltimore. I would recommend him to anyone.
“Today in most western cultures it is considered a 'new alternative' medicine.”
In reality Acupuncture (and its related Moxibustion) are practiced medical treatments that are over 5000 years old. Very basically, Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles, (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus), on the body’s surface, in order to influence physiological functioning of the body. I found Tom to be very knowledgeable and skillful. He does a great job explaining the theory (if you want to learn more, which I do) and listening to your symptoms. I find that he truly cares for his patients.
“I started seeing Tom for fertility help, as well as pain management.”
Tom made me feel so comfortable with his caring and knowledgeable ways. He is extremely informative. He explains how things work, why it helps, and always has an answer to my infinite questions. He has helped to turn my fertility hopes from dismal to extremely hopeful in such a short time. I have been to many different places, but no one has earned my trust so quickly. I know Tom genuinely cares about me and my health and I feel so lucky to have found someone that takes the time to listen and help me. My journey to start a family is just beginning and I am happy to have Tom’s support throughout! 10/10
“Acupuncture gave me back my life.”
Tom is highly recommended. Acupuncture teaches that there are “meridians” which take the energy or “chi” round the body.The needles go into points on the meridian that are connected to the relevant organs etc. I can say that in my experience it was not an unpleasant experience. There were one or two points I was not over keen on, but most I could not feel at all!! When the needles are inserted the practitioner rotates them to “stir up” the chi. It is a strange sensation, but it doesn’t hurt. If you have any chronic condition do give it a go you could be truly amazed by what it can do for you. Just only choose the best acupuncturist.
“I decided to try acupuncture for pain management”
...after I had a serious cycling accident and broke my collar bone badly enough to require surgery. Tom came highly recommended and, after visiting him several times, I understand why. I had been nervous to try acupuncture in the past because I’m not a fan of needles. Needless to say, Tom put me at ease quickly and has definitely helped reduce the pain in my shoulder. If you are new (or not so new for that matter) to acupuncture, I definitely think that Tom is a great place to start.
