More About Dr. Heschmeyer


I had severe sciatica on my right leg for almost two years.After went through nutritionist, yoga teacher, chiropractor I came to see Mariryan for acupuncture. It took out most of leg pain but back side of leg tension remained.One day she told me to wear a wide rubber band around my legs, above knees and walksideways. Then miracle happened. My sciatica is gone 90%.I am so grateful for her expertise.

Mariryan is great! She takes the time to listen to your concerns and then act on them using acupuncture and Chinese herbs. She tracks your progress and has an intuitive ability to read a person’s demeanor for signs that most can’t see, to help you improve in so many aspects of life. For one, she has made it possible for me to discontinue taking statin drugs for my high cholesterol through the use of herbs and acupuncture. I feel so much better being off of that drug! Also being ADHD, she has helped me with being able to focus better and not be so scattered. Grief is another area that she can help with as well as symptoms of menopause. I will highly recommend Mariryan to anyone looking for a better, healthy alternative to healing!

Diane Davis, Venice, FL

I experienced severe facial pain in the left side of my face for 6 months. I could not chew, brush my teeth or eat solid foods. During those months I had an MRI and C-Scan with conflicting diagnosis. .neurological or trigeminal neuralgia. I was under the care of 2 neurologists who placed me on meds with no results, and 2 dental surgeons who ordered me 2 different retainers with no results. Surgery was the next step recommended by all the doctors. Being no doctor was able to confirm a diagnosis I decided to step away, live with the pain and wait for another door to open. A friend of mine aware of my situation recommended I see Mariryan Heschmeyer, an acupuncturist. Never having experienced acupuncture I was hesitant, but my friend is her patient and has had positive results. So, I began seeing Mariryan and after 3 treatments my facial pain completely disappeared and never returned. What all those doctors could not treat, Mariryan did! My husband, who has had chronic back pain for years, is also a patient of Mariryan and very pleased with his results. We are both indebted to Mariryan for her professionalism, knowledge, and care for leading us to a pain free life.
