Kind Words from Our Clients   

Kristine. K. 36years . Pain, Energy, Fertility  "WellFit is truly amazing! I've been treated with acupuncture for stress, exhaustion and intense neck pain. Once I was feeling more balanced.  we started fertility treatment with acupuncture and herbs. I am elated to say that after only three months I am pregnant. I am so happy I found this place!"  

Navarre  A. 41years.  Back Pain   "I was a complete non believer, but I've started to come around after two treatment sessions. 
I went in because I hurt my lower back at the gym (sacroiliac joint, bad pain), it was not the first time this has happened and I wanted to look into pain relief and also anything that could be considered preventative. I have tried therapeutic massage, chiropractic therapy, stretching and strengthening but nothing had really worked. I expected needles and crystals and herbs but what I got was a very professional and therapeutic treatment. The first accu session alleviated some of the immediate pain and pressure I was feeling on my lower back. I was also given some stretches and posture positions that we're helpful. By the second session I was pain free and am now looking at it as more general preventative therapy. If you have hurt your back or other body parts and are looking for a different approach I'd recommend trying it."

Karen V.  38 years .  Pregnancy, Stress, Energy, and Emotional Health    "I have seen Anna for acupuncture and nutritional response therapy  for almost year now, having made my first appointment with after discovering that I was pregnant with twins.  She is fabulous - Her kindness and commitment to her patients is evident from the minute you walk into see her.

During my pregnancy she helped me with all of the aches and pains I experienced (Hips, Pelvis, Knees, etc), making me feel significantly better after each session.   She also helped me with my changing nutritional requirements through my pregnancy, which was wonderful as I felt as though I was being sapped of energy by my ever growing bump.   After our daughters arrived, she was able to help me out with balancing my emotions and relaxing me during a very stressful time.    I would recommend Anna to anyone and everyone who is looking for a talented holistic practitioner in Boston."

Sharon  T.  28 year.    Back and Knee Pain & Stress Management & Optimal   Health  " I had no experience with acupuncture before trying it out almost 2 years ago for the first time. I have 'mechanical' issues with lower back and both knees. The treatments have helped manage my pain levels, distress sensitivities in my joints every time. I feel progress in the hours and days after. No other medical strategy has done that.
Anna has convincing knowledge about acupuncture and its effects on the body and now even better can also advise about nutrional strategies. Next to being a fitness regular, her nutrition supplements and acupuncture help me live a healthier lifestyle.        
Anna is a rockstar!"
Kate F. 28years.  Fertility & Hormonal Balance.   "Anna is extremely knowledgeable and professional yet very down to earth and easy to relate to.   Her knowledge on her area of expertise is truly astonishing. So many of the things we talked about were so interesting and surprising to me. Through a series of non-invasive tests, and it was able to identify my weaknesses and treat them accordingly.  I went to her for fertility. I was nervous and skeptical.  The acupuncture part was absolutely zero pain and put me into a very relaxing state that carried me through the rest of the day. Anna is always a great example of what healthy living looks like, she clearly practices what she preaches. For anyone looking for a natural way to balance their hormones and enhance their fertility, I highly recommend Anna and her Team.  I was pregnant after three months . . 
Leslie T. 41 years .  Fertility & Stress Relief  "My husband and I started the process of acupuncture and nutrition to assist with getting pregnant 4 months ago. I was worried that I couldn't get pregnant because of my age, 41. When I started with Anna she took such good care of me. She was always so positive and up-lifting. We got pregnant in 5 weeks!"
Tyler. P 28years.  Back Pain "I finally decided to try acupuncture as a last resort. I like many was a huge skeptic!! I came to Anna with low back pain that was interfering with work and everyday life. In just 3 sessions my back pain was gone. I was also feeling more relaxed and less stressed - sleeping better and overall just happier. I have been seeing Anna now for almost a year and am definitely the healthiest i've ever been. I rarely have back pain and when I do Anna is easily able to nip it in the bud. I have become a true believer! Highly recommend!"
Thomas F. 83years. Neck & Back Pain “My Father is almost 83 and has had neck/back problems for the past 60 years or more. He is a retired Physician, and has had access to many of the best clinicians and practitioners to help with his chronic pain and he has always been disappointed. After Anna treated my Dad, my Father said that NOBODY - EVER - not a physician, chiropractor, osteopath, massage therapist - nobody had ever been able to really help his neck except for Anna. He stated that she was hands down the best clinician he had ever gone to. I have never heard him speak about another clinician or therapist with such respect. ”
Dorothy 28years  Emotional Health & Energy "It amazes me how Anna can pinpoint exactly what my body needs and how to move the energy around.  I feel so much better after starting working with her and look forward to the next upcoming months.  I spent so long not feeling good, I forgot what feeling good felt like.  I have Anna to thank for helping me feel this way."
 Andrea S. 41 years.  Facial Rejuvenation "I loved the results of my first rejuvenating facial acupuncture. What is there more to say except I looked younger and fresher.”
Christine F. 48years. Facial Rejuvenation "Anna has transformed my skin in a matter of weeks. I've struggled with acne for a while now, and my skin had been especially bad recently and I wanted to try something different. I bought the products she recommended: a probiotic and some Chinese herbs that would help balance me out. My acne hasn't flared up in about 3 weeks. I will be religiously going to her every month now.I have fibromyalgia along with a host of on and off sports related injuries and have been under Anna's  care since 2009. 

Peter M. 56 years. Back Pain "I've dealt with recurring back problems for over 30 years.  Most recently after being in pain for over 5 weeks and unable to get relief I finally tried acupuncture.  My first treatment gave me tremendous relief and in a week I was back to 100%.  My only regret is that I didn't try this 30 years ago.  Anna is highly professional and did a great job introducing me to acupuncture."
Shannon P.  44 years. Arthitic Hand & Back Pain  "A wonderful healing experience; that's the short description of my  treatments with Anna. I had never had acupuncture before but knew a little bit about it. I have been experiencing pain in my hands from arthritis and heard that acupuncture could help. After meeting Anna and before we got down to my treatment, Anna spent time explaining how it would work and answered all of my questions. Now I was even more enthusiastic about the treatment.  
We scheduled a weekly visit for several weeks to address my personal pain issues and overall well being. After a couple of visits I was driving home when I realized my hands felt like they belonged to a teenager. I couldn't recall them ever being so loose. My dexterity had improved! Anna also worked on my flexibly and a lower back punched nerve which contributes to bouts of sciatica. As a practitioner of capoeira, a martial art, I need to be as flexible as possible. Anna truly focused on my personal needs and tailored my treatments accordingly. She also gave me information about diet and supplements that further improved my balance and well being. Truly holistic approach! Not only do I feel better and have been pain free for months, I am also more informed on how to maintain my well being.    I plan to include visits with Anna periodically as part of my health and fitness regime. Anna is a joy to spend time with, she's thorough and informative. I wholeheartedly recommend Anna Israel! Do yourself a favor!"
Andrea l. 32 years. Back Pain "I had thrown my back out and was experiencing a lot of pain. I had already seen my PCP and osteopath to recieve treatment. I was looking to get pain relief and further benefit my recovery by seeking treatment from Wellfit studio. I had been curious and nervous about trying acupuncture. At my appointment Anna did a wonderful job explaining the treatment, listening to my concerns, and adjusting for my individual needs. She's incredibly knowledgeable and seems to have a well rounded outlook on health through various platforms. If I were to sustain another acute injury, I wouldn't hesitate to book another appointment with Anna. Her treatment made a big difference in healing from my injury. I would also be very interested in exploring treatment for more chronic issues.""Anna has helped me heal a hamstring injury, fight off the flu, and relieve stress.  This is good medicine!"
Gabriel T.  30years . Shoulder Pain "I've had the opportunity to work with a number of acupuncturists over the years and Anna is a special gift to the field. I came to her with a burning pain in my shoulder that was plaguing me for weeks. She was very gentle with the needles and left me feel a hundred times better. I can't recommend Anna enough."
Peter G. 36 years Back Pain "Wow! I have been seeing Anna for about 3 weeks of treatment now and am happy to report my chronic lower back pain is subsiding... Being a Waiter in a busy Boston Restaurant I should not have to tell you about back pain!!! Anna's treatment plan and natural approach to non surgical pain relief is amazing!!! I am a back surgery survivor and I'm glad to have been referred to her, AMAZING!!! 
Valerie F. 46years.   Back Pain.  Anna is an amazing healer.  I came to see her after throwing out my back very badly a year ago and she has been a complete life saver.  The acupuncture immediately helped my acute pain and helped me heal very quickly.  As I got better, Anna showed me numerous stretches and exercises that have made an enormous difference to my posture and the strength of my core and back.  Before seeing Anna, I had tried everything, except acupuncture, and now I'm a huge believer.  Anna is also a wonderful person who cares about your whole well-being.  She gives you a lot of individual attention and tailors her strategies to what you need and what works for you.  I can't recommend her highly enough!
Elizabeth M. 24 years . Stress Management & Anxiety    "Can't explain enough how much acupuncture and nutrition with Anna has helped. My body was entirely out of whack between stress and not eating properly and one treatment got me feeling better (and reset my system.) Every time I get off the table I can't believe how much better I feel.

It's like a reset every time. And every time she treats something different pertaining to whatever I have going on the week.      Absolutely incredible!! Can't recommend enough!!

Nelson L. 60years. Energy, Endurance & Vitality   I am running the New York Marathon on November 1, 2015 and I wanted to increase my running performance. I saw Anna the first week of Sept.  She asked me to bring my dietary supplements which I have been taking for a few years now. Anna did some testing with me and recommended substituting some of what i was already taking and adding a program of natural supplements which she provided. Since staring her program  only three weeks ago I have noticed faster running times, increased level of endurance, quicker recovery times and less soreness after hard long runs (over 17 miles). I also have more energy to get through the day. I highly recommend Anna to anyone who wants to increase there ability athletically or who is looking for more energy for day to day activity!

Patty C. 48years. Vertigo,  Tinnitus,  Anxiety, Weight loss   Anna has been my acupuncturist for 8 years. She's helped me achieve better overall health, tweak my diet according to the seasons, manage my stress, menopausal symptoms, low energy, and lower back pain.  Most recently she's help me overcome vertigo and tinnitus.  The vertigo was caused by adrenal fatigue and stress.  The tinnitus was also a sign that my body was stressed so she put me on 3 different herbal supplements.  I gave up alcohol and caffeine and changed my diet to include more red meat and green leafy vegetal   the vertigo has not returned and I have lost 15l    The tinnitus disappeared. A bonus was the rosacea on my cheeks cleared and my skin now has a glow.  I no longer fall asleep before 9:00 pm and my sleep is deep allowing my body and mind to relax and recover.  The combination of acupuncture, herbal supplements and changing my diet to what my body needed was the perfect remedy to get me to a good place.  It doesn't take long to overcome health issues such as mine, but you do need persistence, consistency, patience and a great partner in health and wellness such as Anna Israel. I am so grateful to have Anna in my life.

Neal T. 45 YearsAnna is great!  I find her sessions, invigorating and relaxing all at the same time.  She genuinely cares about your well-being and you can tell that every one her patients is treated according to their individual needs.  I have had a series of small injuries that Anna has helped clear up (shoulders / back) but more important to me, is the sessions where I leave feeling totally alive.  I would totally recommend Anna to anyone.

I have fibromyalgia along with a host of on and off sports related injuries and have been under Marlen Caduff’s care since 2009.
Prior to learning of Marlen, I experimented with other local masseuses. Note, I didn’t say massage therapists. Following my initial session with Marlen, I recognized the difference. She combines caring, empathy, deep knowledge of the body and one other thing to render healing and true therapy.
Marlen’s knowledge of the body transcends physiology. To understand however, it starts there. She has college degrees from Switzerland in nursing and body movement (no American equivalent degree). In addition to massage practices learned in Thailand, her Swiss and American certifications, Marlen specialized in Birth Preparation training in Switzerland.
Combine this underlying foundation of knowledge with Marlen’s ability to quickly learn and understand the energy circulation and pain threshold spots in her client’s body and you’ll begin to see why Marlen is exceptional.
This exceptional talent and knowledge will push a person to the front of their profession. But I’m convinced what separates Marlen from leading therapists is a gift of both perception and intuition. Her ability to perceive through touch, what your body needs is pure unadulterated art. Because of the fibro, my body is ultra-sensitive. But there are times when it needs deeper massage work. I’m not consciously aware of this and if I was I wouldn’t think deeper work would be appropriate. But Marlen knows. I’ve never felt pain when she’s gone there. I’m trying my best to articulate this but in all reality this experience defies description.
Marlen has another gift. As a spa owner, she has continuously surrounded herself with intelligent and caring professionals.
Finally, aside from Marlen’s talent, knowledge, gifts and entrepreneurial acumen, she is a kind-hearted, warm and friendly person. Her spirit is even better!
