As an entrepreneur with several different business ventures, I’m no stranger to stress. A few years ago, I was dealing with more pressure than usual, in both my personal and professional lives. Not only that, but I was also suffering from back pain, thanks to old football and martial arts injuries. I’d thrown my back out, every spinal movement caused pain, and my muscles were so tight I could barely move. This was especially inconvenient, as one of my businesses involves hauling around heavy audiovisual equipment. When I met Dr. Robert at a networking event, I was ready to try anything to alleviate my pain. After talking with him about acupuncture, I decided to give it a try.
The funny thing about pain is that you don’t realize how much of it you’re in until it starts to get better. That’s exactly what happened after my first acupuncture treatment with Dr. Robert. The relief was immediate, and the change was visible. I was hooked.
Since that first appointment, I’ve made acupuncture a regular part of my lifestyle, one that I plan to continue indefinitely. I try to go every two weeks, but thanks to my busy schedule, it ends up being more like every three weeks. I’ve also been taking the Chinese herbs that Dr. Robert prescribes, and I’ve even tried moxibustion. Most of the time when I go in for an appointment, I tell Dr. Robert what’s been bothering me and he knows exactly what to do. The office itself is great – it’s always quiet and relaxing, with a soft atmosphere that puts me right at ease.
For the last five years both my wife and I have been receiving regular acupuncture treatments for a variety of issues and concerns, and we both feel better than ever. This is even more impressive when you consider that about two years ago, we had twins. They’re toddlers now, which is a whole different kind of stress. Thanks to acupuncture, I’ve been able to gracefully handle the joint pressures of business and fatherhood. My wife and I are very grateful for that!
As a member of the audiovisual industry, I’m used to talking to crowds. I’ve shouted Dr. Robert’s praises to dozens of people, hoping they’ll experience the same relief Dr. Robert has given my family. – Brian M.
