“It has been a pleasure to have Maureen Goss in our externship program at Rusk Institute. Not only have we learned from each other, but Maureen’s acupuncture skills, professionalism, caring, and skills in Chinese Medicine have improved our patient outcomes with several recalcitrant cases showing clear improvement in a relatively short time. I am certain Maureen will continue her success and helping people in her practice.”

“When I first met Ms. Goss, we were entertaining the idea establishing an externship program with Tri-State School of Acupuncture. We were a bit anxious, about beginning this program and wondered how it would integrate into our health care system. Ms. Goss eased our anxiety and educated not only management and providers about the benefits of acupuncture, but also educated our patients.
Ms. Goss was instrumental in establishing our acupuncture program. As our first acupuncturist, she worked with agency staff to establish practice guidelines and administrative procedures. When word got out about this program, we had a six week wait for her services. When her externship ended she also provided training for our new acupuncturists.”

“I was scheduled for back surgery when I went to Maureen to see if acupuncture could relieve the excruciating lower back pain I was experiencing. After a couple of sessions I could move without fear. She explained to me that she was releasing tight muscles that were causing the pain and also relieving stress. I cannot thank her enough.”
–John G. New York, NY
“When I first went to see Maureen, my quality of life was at low ebb. I had suffered with Irritable Bowel Syndrome for more than ten years. It had limited my autonomy to the point where there would be, from time to time, several days in a row when I did not feel confident about leaving my house.
After listening to my history with IBS on my first visit, Maureen said she could help me and she did! Just two, completely painless treatments later I could feel the difference. There were more visits, cumulatively beneficial. If, during that time, an IBS incident occurred, it would last one day as opposed to the five to ten days like it did before Maureen’s treatments.
Last month I told my brother I was going to Oregon to visit a friend. His response was, “A forty minute trip on the L.I.R.R. was a challenge to you last Christmas and now you’re going to Oregon!” Yes. Such a trip a year ago, even six months ago, would have been inconceivable, but I did it and sent postcards to prove it!
By trusting in Maureen’s knowledge, I learned the power of acupuncture to heal. She brings to her patients not only her expertise as an acupuncturist, but also her personal warmth and deep concern for the comfort and overall well-being of each person she treats. Maureen Goss is a true healer.”

“I had been suffering from chronic back pain for 3 years before seeing Maureen. I was becoming extremely frustrated with my conditions as I had found limited success with physical therapy, chiropractors and other acupuncturists. I found Maureen’s treatments to be the most effective for both immediate relief and long term care.”
–Charles T. New York, NY
“I began seeing Maureen seeking relief from chronic neck pain and stiffness. Upon meeting, Maureen presented a comprehensive perspective that addressed every aspect of my health and wellness–my daily routines, exercise and eating habits, stress level and emotional status. She showed me how these are all interconnected and illuminated a new awareness to the importance of caring for myself and really listening to my body. During treatment, she works on specific physical issues but I also receive an intense healing experience that sustains me feeling balanced and supported. She is a skilled and intuitive healer with a holistic approach and our work together has greatly contributed to my quality of life.”
–Lisa M. New York, NY
“I am someone who was very afraid of needles and never thought acupuncture was something I would ever consider. However, I had the pleasure of being referred to Maureen. She made my first session and following sessions extremely relaxing and enjoyable and has done wonders to help me manage stress and live healthier and happier.”
–Maria C. New York, NY
“I am very indebted to Maureen for her skilled technique and deeply spiritual approach to her work. Her gentleness and sensitivity created a soothing and comforting experience which, I feel, had everything to do with the successful results.”

“I lost the vision in my right eye while on vacation in 2004. After two years of limited vision I took a supervised Field of Vision test then undertook a series of acupuncture treatments with Maureen to increase blood flow to the optic nerve. After five weeks of treatment once a week, my vision improved 50%, obvious to me; documented by the subsequent Field of Vision test.”
