Dear Constance Gehring:
I would just like to take a moment to say a huge THANK YOU! Prior to my first treatment with you I had been plagued with continuous sinus infection and various and sundry other debilitating illnesses. After only a few short visits, not only have I noticed decreased issues with my fibromyalgia, energy levels and overall general well being, but for the first time in too many years to even count I can actually BREATHE!!!! I no longer have any issues with my sinuses, I can smell (which I don't even remember how long it has been since I could smell anything!) and I sleep through the night as I am not continuously waking to take a drink of water due to the horrible snoring in my sleep! I have lived with the issues with my sinuses for so long I had completely forgotten what it was like to NOT have a sinus infection! I have spent years on antibiotics, even did a 'long term' antibiotic trial in an effort to alleviate the problems.....all to no avail. I cannot even begin to verbalize how liberating it feels NOT to have ANY issues at all now.
Your treatments have been so significant in my life and made such a huge difference that as we continue I just want more and more, because with each treatment I notice something new that "feels better" than it has in many years. I am deeply grateful and look forward to continuing this journey with you to better health. I know I could never have reached this point without your caring expertise.
Gratefully in love and light,
Stress and Breathing
Constance — It is always a multi-level experience when we come to visit and have a treatment with you. Today was no exception. I am so excited about the journey Emily and I have been on through these months. And the journey ahead is bright. Thanks for being a huge part, an inspiring component, and for your intriguing and profound expertise.Blessings and joy to you!

I have been dealing with chronic pain since 2007. I had my 4th spinal fusion in April and was still having a lot of pain. I found the website for Acupuncture Newton and thought I should give it a try. Thank God I did because Constance is the answer to my prayers! She has worked with me twice a week for a month and my pain levels dropped from 6s or 7s down to 2s or 3s. For the past 5 years I've been on strong pain meds every 3 hours, now I'm only needing something when I'm up and very active. I'm on disability so money is tight. I never would have been able to do this if it weren't for the low cost of the community acupuncture fees. Thank you again, Constance, see you soon.

Constance has the right combination of knowledge and caring to make a difference in the life of her patients. She helped me with allergies this Spring. Jerilyn Ediger, Hesston, KS
Emotional Trauma & Back Pain/Migraines
I suffered severe emotional trauma last year due to a sudden divorce and finally had to come to terms with some ongoing health issues that seemed to totally overwhelm me under the additional pressure I was encountering as a single working mother close to 50 years old."
"I am normally healthy but the circumstances were too much to handle and I got migraines, menstrual issues, lower back pain, and just felt depleted and unable to cope. I also was trying to process a lot of grief and loss."
"Constance Gehring treated me as a whole person from the very beginning, directly treating my symptoms, but also working with visualizations and other healing modes to revitalize me spiritually and physically. After one key session I was able to release a whole lot of loss which was making my heart actually ache and I felt incredible release and relief."
"I have found Constance Gehring to be patient, highly intuitive and very effective as a healer."

Although I have a lifetime of attraction to natural medicine, I have only been practicing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine since 2004. My journey started at age 11 when my grandmother, Helen Toevs Regier, put a slice of onion on my arm after I was stung by a hornet.
I believe the body has a natural intelligence and desire to heal. As healers, our job is to provide the treatment to the best of our ability that enables the body to do its job. For many, it is important to be heard in order to facilitate physical and emotional healing.
During my 20's I took a class on using herbs to repel moths and make teas. An herb store opened at 39th and Main in Kansas City. I read a lot. Jethro Kloss was my first teacher. In my 30's and 40's in Taos, NM, I had the good fortune to study with Herbalist Lucy McCall. She took us in the mountains on herb walks and taught us to make tinctures, salves, flower essences. I had a business called Black Bear wherein I made and sold tinctures, bath salts, essential oils, soaps, moth repellant.
It was during this time that I was finally able to stop smoking. Acupuncture helped. I also had made a few tinctures and found recipes for very similar tinctures in Michael Tierra's “The Way of Chinese Herbs”. I wanted to make the leap from making product to working with people.
The International School of Chinese Medicine in Santa Fe had a very good reputation for its teaching of Chinese medicine and Chinese herbs. I enrolled in the Fall of 2000. It was a Masters program of three full years of instruction, 2800 hours. 900 of those hours were in clinic, 500 in Chinese herbs, and the remainder in Chinese philosophy, diagnosis, and treatment. Most of our teachers came straight from China. They were trained both as allopathic physicians and as acupuncturists. I will always be grateful to Dr. Li Li, Dr. Liu, Lady Wong, and Dr. Zhao.
To practice acupuncture in the United States, one must graduate from an accredited school, pass the national acupuncture exam, pass the national herbal exam, then meet the qualifications of the state of residence. Following licensure, CEU's are required annually to keep one's license. Our profession is the only one with the extensive knowledge of theory and empirical knowledge that is qualified to safely and effectively treat with acupuncture needles and other Chinese medicine modalities.
This is a medicine that offers an opportunity of a lifetime of learning. I am honored by those who place their trust in me. This is a very enjoyable and satisfying profession.
My hobbies are gardening and painting.
