I went into the hospital for colon surgery. Prior to entering the hospital I received acupuncture treatments from Shaun Dumas to prepare my body for surgery. I was informed by my nurse that the normal hospital stay for this type of surgery was 7 to 10 days and I was discharged after only 4 days. My only explanation for this is the pre-surgery acupuncture treatment I received. Post surgery I received treatments from Shaun for wound healing and scar tissue. My incision healed perfect and in a very short time frame. This is incredible considering that I am an insulin dependent diabetic. To anyone having any type of major surgery I would strongly recommend pre and post surgery acupuncture treatments.
