I originally started seeing Tybee back in 2003 for help with symptoms associated with vestibular dysfunction (an inner ear disorder triggered by a virus). My ear problem has improved significantly, and the acupuncture treatments have helped manage my occasional symptoms and flare-ups.
An unexpected side effect was a strengthened immune system. I would typically get a winter bronchial infection every year, always requiring antibiotics. I travel a lot and would very often return from my trips with a cold. But with regular treatment, these infections have become MINIMAL…only an occasional head cold!
Health-wise I’ve been feeling quite well, and I attribute it to Tybee’s expertise with acupuncture.

ACUPUNCTURE DAYS ARE THE BEST DAYS!
I always say “acupuncture day” is a vacation from myself. Anxiety is gone, and I feel so calm and relaxed! Finally I can think logically and enjoy my day. It’s seriously amazing, and I hope someday everyone will give it a try!

“Tybee is a consummate professional in her field, constantly seeking education and professional development in her chosen area of expertise.
I attended her clinic for the best part of at least 4 years and never regretted one session, and throughout that period, she consistently improved my health and well being. She recommended lifestyle changes that helped me cope with my job and constant traveling.
I have no hesitation in recommending Tybee for anyone who seeks alternative health advice in the greater Boston area. My only regret was my job took me away from the Boston area, and the care I received during that time.”

I am a patient who had developed some severe lower back pain and now after working with Tybee am virtually pain free.
I work in sales and am on my feet most of the day. I’m also in a band and on weekends; I’m playing 3 or 4 hours at a time standing and holding my instrument while also loading and unloading all the equipment. It would take me weeks to recover from a night of playing and lifting all the equipment.
Now after I play I wake up pain free. I am a person who is not very comfortable with doctor’s offices / doctors / nurses etc., so my first visit I expected to be a little uncomfortable; but from the second Tybee said hello I felt as though I were her only patient and the most important person in the world to her.
She is amazing and I... Read more »

“At a time when people are so conscious of maintaining their physical health by controlling their diets, exercising, and so forth, it makes sense to try to cultivate the corresponding mental attitudes too.”
– HH the Dalai Lama, 1963
It can be easy to forget how much our mental state can affect our physical well-being. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, that connection is evident in the treatment strategies, but it is also true that when we are feeling bad, we don’t always think to look at our minds. It works both ways. continue reading
2020 has proven to be a year of trials and growth for all of us. With a new school year just around the corner, it’s important to have an open dialogue with our children about what to expect, how to stay safe and how they can express themselves even with certain restrictions. continue reading
We’re confident that you’ve heard of acupuncture, but do you know where it comes from?
The study and practice of acupuncture and acupressure have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years and is an ancient healing technique. Acupressure and acupuncture apply the same principles, but acupressure uses pressure points instead of needles to achieve the desired results. continue reading
Statistics show that almost eight out of 10 people experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. This can also be attributed to the fact that many people suffer from low-grade dehydration because they don’t drink enough water and they don’t ingest enough healthy fats that keep the muscles and tendons loose. It is also very well known that in the United States, people are too sedentary, and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading
Most people have heard of the field of acupuncture by now, but did you realize the scope of the practice encompasses Chinese medicine, which includes so much more than needles? Let’s explore this ancient therapy.
First of all, the practice of Chinese medicine starts with a diagnosis. The practitioner takes an extensive health history, and asks many questions to build on it; this includes the answers to digestion, appetite, diet, sleep patterns, bowel movement, urination, pain, lifestyle, and stress level, for example. The acupuncturist will also be noting the voice pitch, hair luster, skin color and tone, as well as posture and mood of the patient and any significant odor. After that, there is a pulse and tongue analysis to determine where the pattern and root are, primarily. Finally, blood pressure is measured and other applicable tests done, including palpation of the body. After this history, a diagnosis and treatment plan is determined. What might be included in this plan? continue reading
