Our Mission is Simple: Genuine Care. Exceptional Results.

Susan, 56, Retired

Only A Few of Our Success Stories

For the past few years, I have been suffering from HSV-1 outbreaks.  I was surprised to discover that acupuncture could treat even this!  However, I hesitated for a time before pursuing treatment out of embarrassment.  

Straightaway, Donley made me feel very comfortable.  I felt totally at ease talking with him.  His questioning about my symptoms was very matter-of-fact.  The treatment was non-invasive & relaxing. 

The symptoms eased almost immediately after and then continued to reverse, rather than getting worse as they would have. 

Able to predict a regular pattern to my outbreaks, I now have two well-timed preventative treatments a month around my cycle, which have been able to ward off any further outbreaks.  It is such a relief to have found another way around this without relying on prescriptive medications!


Owner, Local Business

As a result of a car accident I was involved in eighteen years ago, I have a misaligned axis that has caused chronic neck pain & headaches ever since.  Since I am unable to get the surgery that would be required to fix it permanently, I sought out acupuncture to see if it would help with the pain.

Regular treatments with Donley have taken the pain down to a manageable level and relieved most of my headaches, something I never would have thought possible before!


Owner, Local Business

Donley treated me for several months.  I have chronic fatigue from an auto-immune condition, insomnia, sinusitis, brain fog & depression.  At the start, all my pulses were very low, but I quickly began to respond & improve my energy & all-around feelings of well-being.

Donley is a very organized and meticulous professional, whose gentle & confident manner helped me relax & trust the process. He always had suggestions for me, new ways to keep the treatment fresh, and used massage techniques to augment the needles.

I always felt listened to, respected, & that we were a team.  He clearly loves what he does, & strikes me as a “natural.” His kind temperament & enjoyable sense of humor made for a very positive experience.

As an RN and someone who has had lots of experience with different holistic practitioners, I give Donley my very highest recommendation.

Regular treatments with Donley have taken the pain down to a manageable level and relieved most of my headaches, something I never would have thought possible before!


Registered Nurse, Retired

I have had treatments from Donley Sissom, Flow Wellness Center, for serious conditions on several occasions. In each case, I responded with noticeable, tangible improvements. Donley is a talented, concerned practitioner of Eastern medicine and provides a wonderful addition to traditional medical practice. I highly recommend him as a partner for your health and wellness journey


Naturopathic Doctor, Retired

I didn’t think I’d walk again without pain. I had to use a crutch to get around. I was taking six to eight Advil per day, which really wasn’t helping to manage the pain much but took the edge off a little. I was angry and depressed. The pain was getting to me.

This went on for six weeks before I saw Donley Sissom. He spent some time listening to my symptoms before doing a treatment. I was a little apprehensive of having needles stuck in me but I had heard of the many benefits of acupuncture and I was ready to try it. He performed the first treatment and I noticed a difference that night. He did another treatment the next day and by that night I noticed an incredible difference!

Donley was attentive as well as compassionate while he listened to my symptoms. 


Executive Assistant, Local Union

Donley has relieved nearly all of my symptoms from sciatica including numb feet, leg pain & lower back pain



I came in because I have allergies, chemical sensitivities, and anxiety. I’ve had three sessions so far and I feel much better. I have more energy, I’m calmer, and I can think better. I’m going to keep coming into Flow Wellness Center!

Independent Artist

I’ve had low back pain for three years because of an accident. Sometimes the pain is an 8 out of 10. After only a few needles on my hand and arm. I haven’t felt this good in years. I have NO pain!

Independent Contractor

I had a panic attack on a Tuesday; it came on quickly during an argument with an employee who was not following directions.  I had to take a break and use medication and eventually stopped shaking and was able to finish my shift, but for the rest of the day, it felt like somebody was standing on my chest.  I woke up the next morning upset and tense, with that same feeling of a huge weight on my chest.  I felt so unsure if I could face the day that I nearly stayed in bed and called in sick to work, but I got myself out of the house and over to my morning appointment at Flow Wellness Center.

I’d originally made the appointment because I do very labor-intensive work & I’m trying to keep my back in good condition as long as possible.  When I got there, Donley asked how I was doing, I told him I’d been having panic attacks for a long time and explained what had happened the day before.  He was really easy to talk to and asked a lot of simple, easy-to-answer questions about how the situation made me feel.  Then he said, “okay, let’s get you fixed up.” 

He put a total of 4 pins into me, all on my left side; on my hand, foot & behind the knee.  The pins don’t hurt me when they go in, but there can be a strange sensation of pressure which might cause a short second of minor discomfort while the pin is being put into position.  I am not a needle person; getting splinters sucks, having my blood drawn freaks me out, but acupuncture pins have never bothered me.  They’re inserted in an instant, and once they’re in, you can’t feel them.  

He took my pulse, asked me to take 3 deep breaths then said,  “Okay, this should take about 20 minutes, just relax & let me know if you need anything”.  I almost immediately started to feel the tension in my chest dissipate. As I lay there with my eyes closed, I felt a gentle, comforting, swirling sensation that slowly intensified.  The spot where it felt like there was a dent in my chest quickly began to feel as if it were rising and the feeling of despair began to dissipate.  The dent rose quickly and soon it felt as if it were now going the opposite direction, like a bubble of energy popping out of my chest.  It felt as if where once there had been a deep, empty well, waves of energy had filled it up now there was a fountain where the well had been.

Instead of despair I suddenly felt relief, and I knew I could face the day. I didn’t realize how much stress I really had built up inside me until I suddenly felt better.  I knew there were still problems I had to fix at work when I got there but I no longer felt unable to face the situation.  I was quickly snapped out of a state of panic and depression that had affected me for years and had come to be a daily struggle.  That was 8 weeks ago, I’ve been back every 2 weeks for treatments.  I’ve cut my anxiety meds in half, and I haven’t had a panic attack again.  I was having them several times a week for years before this. 

Effects of treatments can be less dramatic now that I’m feeling good all the time but at the end of every session I always feel relieved and revitalized.  Each experience has been beneficial and specifics of treatments vary to address my needs and how I’m feeling.  I do a lot of heavy lifting at work and it makes my spine feel smashed & solid.  During treatments for my back, I lay there face up, flat and comfy with a few pins in me,  and I can feel my spine slowly aligning itself.  Swelling in muscles reduces, and It feels like waves of gentle pressure from both sides are gently coaxing my back into its proper alignment.  Usually, there’s an easy, stress-relieving pop. It always increases flexibility & makes my hips and tailbone area feel stronger afterward.

Donley at Flow is helping keep my back strong, my energy balanced, and my mind right

Why Our Natural Treatments Work So Well. . .

We address the root cause

To The Point ~ We Address The Root Cause

Our process includes finding & targeting the actual root CAUSE of your symptoms.  This is why so many patients have found relief with our therapies, even when other therapies failed to. Even those with a long family history of your condition have experienced significant relief.

We keep it simple and results are quick

We Keep It Simple & Results Are Quick

Feeling better & boosting your body’s natural healing resources does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle & diet changes, along with our focused natural therapies, are a very clear & concise way to address your issues head-on, and patients often see improved energy & mood within DAYS, not WEEKS or MONTHS.

We Use an All-Natural Approach Your Doctor Doesn't Know About

We Use an All-Natural Approach 

Your doctor may have told you that medication is the ONLY answer or that you have to just live with your health concern & symptoms. That doesn’t mean there are no other options, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to our natural approach.

Our Approach Always Includes Emotional Wellbeing

Our Approach Always Includes Emotional Wellbeing

Stress, anxiety & depression are often key components in many health concerns and hormone-driven conditions. Rather than only focusing on addressing the physical condition, we teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep & relaxation which supports your body’s natural healing system so it is much easier for conditions to resolve on their own.

As a male practitioner, I feel called to assist women because I have so much appreciation for all that you do, holding the utmost respect for your contribution to our world. Having a mother, wife & daughters I adore, I feel drawn to help women find and use all their innate power so they can live their fullest, healthiest and happiest life.

Feel Better FAST with our 100% Natural Therapies

We give expert guidance on nutrition and supplements. No need for expensive lab tests.  It is our belief that overwhelming elimination diets and supplement regimens do not work; they could actually be dangerous.  In many cases after working with us, you may be able to reduce your medications, so you can live a more fulfilling, active, and energetic life.

We Utilize Four Time-Tested Pillars To Help You Feel Your Best

Nutritional Therapy

You’ll receive a clear, easy-to-follow nutritional plan. When your cells, glands, & tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need they naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because your body’s key systems are optimized.

Gentle Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s internal healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing & restoring all cells & tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast intelligence your body possesses to help you heal faster.

Herbal Medicine

Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual-action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat chronic and non-life-threatening conditions like migraines, PMS, menstrual difficulties, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalance, and reproductive issues as well as the symptoms associated with endometriosis.

Relaxation & Stress-Reduction

When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, & circulatory systems all calm down, as well. This means less inflammation, pain relief, better circulation & nutrient absorption.

Genuine Care ~ Exceptional Results

Healthy & Pain-Free is your body's Natural State. It is constantly making the powerful medicine it needs. At Flow Wellness Center, we help your body awaken its healing resources without pharmaceuticals or surgery, so you can live a life full of joy without the constant need for drugs which only mask symptoms.

Our Process is Designed to Get Results

Our Process is Designed to Get Results

Our goal at Flow Wellness Center is to provide efficient, results-oriented care that helps you achieve your personal health and wellness goals, whatever they may be. We strive for quick, effective results so that you feel confident recommending us to your family, friends, loved ones, and co-workers. We are not interested in creating a large practice of people coming for “maintenance”. Rather, we believe (and our experience has shown) that once you are strong and well you do not need endless maintenance visits.

At your free initial consultation, you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

Once your free consultation is complete and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan.

You will receive your first acupuncture treatment at this time, and you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments and possibly key supplements &/or herbal medicines to address the root of YOUR gynecology issue.

You’ll return for weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy.

We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results: 

  • Pain relief

  • Increased energy

  • Normal urination/bowel movements

  • Better sleep

  • Improved mental focus

  • Healthier skin and hair

  • Healthy metabolism and (if applicable) weight loss

You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous & hormonal systems) is rebalancing in a way that results in optimal well-being.

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. At this point, you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments!

We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.  Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing wellness maintenance”.  We encourage this and are happy to provide that for you.

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends & loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, & loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.

No Judgment or Pressure Here

We will never tell you to stop taking (or try to make you feel ashamed about) your medications. We will work with you on whatever level you are comfortable with to safely and effectively get the results you want. No judgment or pressure here.  We meet you with compassion, love, and understanding no matter what you may be dealing with in life.

Our Unique Philosophy

We always strive to maintain complete integrity in our dealings with patients, partners, referring clinics, suppliers, and all others with whom we interact. From your initial consultation to the time you have achieved your health goals you will have a clear understanding of your care plan.

We will only recommend what is necessary – never more, never less. We will always treat you fairly and with respect. And, we will always do our best to help you in every way with your wellness goals and needs.

We are honored to be part of your healing team and we never criticize the decisions you make regarding your medical care. Whether you choose a 100% natural route or choose to combine our services with conventional medicine, our goal remains the same. We support you and help you make the most of your chosen path to greater wellness. During your appointments, we will discuss simple everyday strategies you can implement on your own to assist you on your journey to health.

Your body contains all the information it needs to correct the imbalances leading it toward disease. With the appropriate support and a little help from nature it CAN find the way back into balance leading you toward your most healthy, vibrant and happy state of being. Non-surgical / non-pharmaceutical medicine is not necessarily ‘slow’ or ‘weak’. Knowing this, given the right treatment strategy, natural medicine can produce dramatic results in a relatively short amount of time, often correcting imbalances that elude drugs and surgery. Your own healing intelligence is the most powerful medicine on Earth.

We do not over-prescribe supplements and herbs, nor do we recommend excessive visits to the clinic. By devising a precise, compact treatment plan and strategy, we help you get effective, efficient results.

Rather than micromanage your physiology, we awaken the force that already knows exactly what you need to rebalance and heal. Read about our process here.

You are not required to come in for ongoing maintenance visits at our clinic. Once you have achieved your health goals, there is no longer a need for maintenance visits once your healing system is reactivated.

Instead of requiring monthly or other maintenance routines, we trust that you will continue to be well as long as you choose to be. However, you will always find us here, ready to help, should issues arise down the road.

Many of our patients CHOOSE to do monthly visits because they feel recharged and renewed after an acupuncture session. You are welcome to request this and we are happy to provide this service for you.

Our skill helping people reawaken their innate healing system results in many, many referrals. We are grateful to have a constant, steady stream of new people to serve.
