I began seeing Tennyson for chronic neck and shoulder pain after many years of physical therapy that yielded only temporary results. Through a combination of table massage, Thai massage, acupuncture, and positive energy, my pain management has steadily improved over the last two years. My sleep has improved, as has my overall feeling of well-being. I would recommend Tennyson without reservation to anyone in search of a positive experience in massage or acupuncture!
I have worked with many acupuncturists over the years but Tennyson is someone special. Not only are her clinical skills exceptional, but I believe she is also a natural healer. She first treated me for a sinus infection several months ago. I don’t remember ever having been that sick. Tennyson listened carefully to all of my concerns then treated me for the sinus infection as well as the insomnia that went with it. In addition to acupuncture, Tennyson also took the time to talk with me about the importance of rest, and the right foods to eat to help my body heal. I can honestly say tha… Read more
I’ve had MS since 2002 and have been getting acupuncture since 2004. I’ve been treated by many practitioners, until I found Tennyson. Where many practitioners take a clinical approach to both acupuncture and massage, Tennyson uses a holistic approach, treating me as a person and not just my specific ailments. She has a masterful sense of how best to treat me, be it through acupuncture, massage, Thai massage or food coaching. She’s very consultative, asking lots of questions and listening to my concerns. Without Tennyson’s treatments, I believe I would need to take 5-10 more medications … Read more

If you’re looking for a more holistic approach to your massage therapy, then look no further. I’ve been going to Tennyson for almost 9 months and have done a variety of therapies and I’m a much better person. I’ve had regular table massage, Japanese and Chinese acupuncture and Thai (floor) massage, from Tennyson. The other big thing that Tennyson does is talk about diet and eating and how integral this is to your bodies well being. BUT, she’s not all preachy. She’s very realistic and understanding with the fact that we are human and will eat and do things to our bodies that aren’t go… Read more
When I started working with Tennyson in September 2009, I was in severe pain every day. Muscles in my lower back were hard and unyielding. I was stiff after sitting. I had tried a range of remedies with some improvement, but I was not satisfied. I started with acupuncture and added Thai massage after about three months. Acupuncture released my hard muscles, and Thai massage helped limber me up so I am rarely stiff after sitting. I have experienced vast improvement. I have many days with no pain at all. The therapy is so rewarding, I always want more. Tennyson is easy to talk to and quic… Read more
I have suffered from back pain on and off for years originating from a herniated disc that I sustained in 2011. I have tried many different traditional medicine techniques including physical therapy and epidural steroid injections, and acupuncture is the only thing that has caused a noticeable reduction in my pain level. I would highly recommend acupuncture to anyone seeking any type of pain relief, it has done wonders for me and Tennyson at Casco Bay Acupuncture & Massage provides a calm and professional atmosphere at a very reasonable price.
