A Well Known Therapist Recounts Her Experience With Acupuncture

Well known psychologist Laura S. Brown, wrote about her healing experience with acupuncture in the Psychology of Women Quarterly.

In the fall of 1987, Laura Brown lost her voice. As a singer and a speaker, she had had voice troubles before but this laryngitis, which came on shortly after her return from the American Psychological Association Convention did not seem to improve despite much tea, steam, lozenges, and days of silence; it only got worse. She saw an otolaryngologist who gave her a diagnosis of a focal dystonia, “Spasmodic Dysphonia,” with the frightening prognosis of her never being able to use her voice again. After that she looked into several alternative therapies and got treatment from an acupuncturist. In January of 1988, Laura began to get better and she credits this improvement largely to her acupuncture treatment. While her progress was not a straight line, with the help of acupuncture Dr. Brown had regained her public speaking voice by 1989.

I’ve been going to Cara since the beginning of the year because of health problems. I lost a lot of weight and I was very sick so my sister recommended I set up an appointment with Cara. I did not have any problems setting up my first appointment. I was not sure what to expect when I met with her but she made me feel very comfortable. It was easy to talk with her about everything and she gave me my very own herbal mixture. I’ve been in good health for a while now and I attribute that to Cara’s healing hand. She’s now a special part of my life and I thank her for that.
