My primary care doctor suggested acupuncture treatments

About six months ago, I was diagnosed with neuropathy of my feet. My left foot was more painful than my right foot. My primary care doctor suggested acupuncture treatments. After four acupuncture treatments, the pain is less in both feet. I am able to walk longer distances with little or no discomfort. Sincerely,

Immediate relief after the first treatment

After suffering for more than 10 years with painful plantar fasciitis and traditional treatments that addressed the symptoms for short-term periods, I began searching for alternative treatments. At this point I was taking high dosages of painkillers daily and was concerned about the long-term detriment to my overall health, and really not achieving much relief, […]

Improved tremendously!

I have struggled with plantar fasciitis for over 10 years. The pain has progressively increased over the years and has limited my physical activity. I have tried shoe orthotics, steroid injections, massage and decreasing my activities to curb my pain. None of the treatments that I tried in the past relieved the pain I endured […]

Pain in my left foot

I am a runner who recently had to cease doing what I love doing due to plantar fasciitis. During a 1/2 marathon, around mile 11, I began experiencing a tremendous amount of pain in my left foot. I finished the race, but could barely walk. I could put no pressure on my heel whatsoever. Although […]

Kept me pain-free

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! In November of 2008, I came down with plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis. I was getting ready to start training in January 2009 for my first 100-mile endurance run (, the premier 100-mile ultra. From January 1st through June 27th, training harder than I’ve ever trained before, averaging 70 […]

Morton’s Neuroma

For over seven years, I suffered from a foot disorder called Morton’s Neuroma. The pain was diabilitating, growing from a sensation like a rock in my shoe to foot swelling and pain requiring bedrest. Unfortunately, I eventually required surgery on my foot to removed a nerve associated with the neuroma condition. I was informed by […]

My discomfort was relieved

I developed acute foot pain from years of wearing ‘flip-flops’ that were damaging to my high arches. I spent 2 years going to podiatrists, getting xrays plus an MRI, going for physical therapy and wearing orthopedic inserts. Eventually, I sought Steve’s help and within 6-8 sessions, my discomfort was relieved. For the past 1 1/2 […]


Two years ago I developed a neuroma in my left foot. It became very painful to run and even walk. At times wearing shoes would feel extremely uncomfortable. Having medical insurance I did what most people would do and sought the treatment of a podiatrist. His first impression was that the neuroma was so severe […]

Saw 5 different doctors

I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and feet neuropathy about 2 years ago with almost constant pain. I saw 5 different doctors for this and did not receive any relief. After a couple months of treatment by Steve Phillips I started getting some relief and am continuing to improve. Steve has also recommended a couple […]
