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 »

Traditional Chinese Medicine
Whether you are a professional, college, or high school athlete (or maybe just a weekend warrior), you know that injuries can happen when you least expect it. Sometimes, it’s a traumatic injury because your body was pushed beyond its limit and sometimes, the injury comes from simple overuse — and every athlete wants to get back on the field, court, or track as quickly as possible. continue reading
The health of our lungs isn’t necessarily talked about a lot when general health is discussed. Typically, cardiovascular health, chronic pain, cholesterol, and stroke risk tend to be the more common topics. Many don’t think about lung health until there is a problem and then improving it becomes priority number one. continue reading
In a nutshell, traditional acupuncture, also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM, works under the belief that the body is controlled by a flow of energy called qi traveling through pathways in the body that are called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that when these pathways become blocked and the energy can’t flow freely, various health problems begin to appear. continue reading
Acupuncture stimulates energy pathways in the body, thus enhancing blood flow. This form of medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and has been specifically used to increase circulation for centuries. At the bedrock of this medicine are the techniques used to stimulate sympathetic responses resulting in blood vessel dilation and increased blood flow. continue reading
The Mayo Clinic describes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) as a “complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that lasts for at least six months and that can’t be fully explained by an underlying medical condition. The fatigue worsens with physical or mental activity, but doesn’t improve with rest.” It’s estimated that there are more than 200,000 cases of CFS in the U.S. and research has proven that acupuncture, combined with other treatments can help to alleviate the symptoms that come with CFS. continue reading
Acupuncture has a proven track record of success. If you haven’t yet added acupuncture to your health care routine, the best way to determine the right acupuncturist for you is to identify your specific health care needs and goals. Trusting a provider is easier when you know they have the proper training and credentials to address your specific needs.
If you are here on this website, you already have this goal in mind. Different states and jurisdictions have different training and educational requirements. Don’t hesitate to ask about training, specialties, advanced education, and practice philosophy. continue reading
Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China for good reason. Each new year brings new energies and opportunities. The celebration begins the day after the first new moon between January 21 and February 20 each year and lasts until the following full moon. These 2 weeks are a time of welcoming and aligning with the new energies. This year, the Chinese New Year falls on Feb 1st and festivities continue through Feb 15th, 2022. Each year has a corresponding element and animal of the Chinese zodiac.
This is the year of the water-tiger…it holds a lot of promise for an exciting, productive year. It indicates a new beginning, a fresh start, and it’s a year made for bold action. The Tiger is known for its power, daring, and ability to do everything on a grand scale.
This water-tiger year is in gear to be a faster-paced, more passionate year after a slower year of the Ox (2021) and a very challenging year of the Rat (2020). The tiger has been sleeping…awaiting his time for action. 2022 has great potential to be a year of change because of the energy of the tiger: brave, self-assured, and ready to pounce. Individually, we might be inspired to embark on new adventures, such as travel or moving, or starting a new business. Collectively, there may be an energetic shaking off of stagnation brought on by the past couple years of the pandemic. It will be a year of exploring new ideas, and not shying away from challenges. If energy is not allowed to flow (individually and/or collectively) there may be some restlessness or unpredictable behaviors. It is also important to balance the aggressive energy of the tiger with times of rest. Even tigers take cat naps. This is a water year, so the yin energy of the water can help to balance the fierce fiery nature of the tiger. continue reading

If you are just beginning to look into acupuncture, you will be exposed to language you probably aren’t familiar with. One of the first phrases you might come across is the term “meridian.” Meridians are defined as the invisible channels through which qi (or energy) circulates throughout the body. The acupuncture points are the locations where the qi of the channels rises close to the surface of the body. continue reading
Research tells us that acupuncture has been beneficial in treating a variety of conditions including high blood pressure, stress and anxiety, and headaches, just to name a few. The good news is, you can add allergy symptoms to that list as well. continue reading
