KNEE & HIP PAIN, STRESS, SINUS ISSUES

I have always had a weak knee and a hip injury a few years ago added to my aches and pain. Since I sit at a desk all day at work, those joints get stiff and sometimes painful. Acupuncture has offered me relief and a way to manage the pain I experience from my knee and hip without relying on OTC pain relievers. With months of physical therapy, I didn’t feel as good as I do now. During my initial consult with Emma, she also uncovered that I was not handling the stress in my life well. With acupuncture treatments for stress and relaxation and tips from Emma on how to handle stress and food recommendations to balance my energy better, I feel happier and healthier than ever before. Additionally, sinus problems have plagued me all my life. Acupuncture treatments for sinus problems have cleared my sinus cavity and recommendations from Emma regarding foods to avoid have helped me steer clear of further problems.

Thanks to Emma, I have learned to recognize when my body is out of balance and how to remedy the situation either on my own or by visiting her for a little “tweaking” with the needles. Whenever I receive a treatment, regardless of the problem we are treating, I always feel 100% better and have a renewed sense of balance.

SHOULDER PAIN

My shoulder pain was getting worse. It was starting to affect my quality of life. We all reach that point where you will try anything for relief. That is when I was referred to Emma. I admit I was somewhat of a skeptic about acupuncture but I had reached that point.

After answering a series of questions, Emma starts to put the puzzle together and suggests the treatment method. While relaxing on a table, you barely feel the initial setting of the needles. It is NOT like what you think it feels like. You can actually feel good things happening within your body.

The calmness and pain relief I experienced was amazing. I initially went for pain relief but acupuncture has helped me in ways I never expected. I have a different outlook on nutrition and my overall health.

Emma is very enthusiastic about combining acupuncture and nutrition suggestions to help the body get back in balance. It really does work! Take it from a former skeptic.
