I am hoping to encourage others to give acupuncture a try. I had never really thought about it as a treatment for pain and fatigue or for anxiety. Really, I imagined it to be a somewhat “out there” form of treatment. Imagine my surprise when it actually worked! The relief I experienced was amazing. A surgeon told me that I have a ruptured disc in my neck and nerve damage and that the only solution would be surgery. I definitely wanted to avoid surgery. My hairdresser had mentioned that Cindy was phenomenal at helping people. So I decided I had nothing to lose and was pleasantly surprised after one treatment that most of my neck pain was gone. It had been with me for 3 months. Physical therapy had not helped at all. It took three or so more treatments and the pain and weakness in my arm were totally gone. I continue to see Cindy weekly to maintain this pain free zone and also she has helped me to feel less anxiety in every day life. Cindy is always a welcome friendly face, eager to hear how I am doing and to help with any new issues. She is very thorough, professional and kind. She has become a dear friend who I cannot wait to visit weekly! I hope others give acupuncture with Cindy a try so they can benefit from her treatments as well.
