I Was Nervous About Acupuncture, But Now I’m a Huge Fan!


fear of acupunctureFor years, I suffered from debilitating hormonal migraine headaches—the kind that brought me to tears and forced me to spend a few days bed-ridden until I could manage the pain.  I tried all kinds of prescription drugs, but they didn’t really help; I thought I would just have to live with this for the rest of my life.  Then, my husband met Dr. Robert through a business networking group.  After learning about Acupuncture Associates and the success Dr. Robert had in treating other women with similar problems, my husband suggested that I give it a try.

I had never been exposed to any alternative medicine or energy work, and I was so uncomfortable with the “kooky” idea of someone sticking “needles” in me, I decided to speak to my pastor about it.  He approved, explaining that acupuncture is an acceptable ancient practice that has been around for centuries.  I don’t know what I was worried about!

I still have occasional, mild headaches, but those unbearable, incapacitating headaches are gone!  I look forward to my treatments now, and I hate missing one if I’m out of town.  Dr. Robert has the best bedside manner—he’s caring and attentive, and the needles don’t hurt at all.  In fact, usually I fall asleep during the treatments.  It’s fantastic!  I can actually feel the energy moving through my body– such a good feeling.

Now I’m a huge advocate for acupuncture.  It’s been so effective for me that I’ve even brought my nine-year-old daughter for help with a problem she was having.  After just two treatments, my daughter’s problem was gone!—T.S.
