Consider acupuncture as an alternative to conventional medication
My name is Mary Overton and I’m 59 years old. In June 2001, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.
In the last 9 years I have taken pain medication, injections to my spine and I've also had two knee operations, Every day I live with pain in several parts of my body. The pain has also caused my blood pressure to rise to alarming heights.
I have been concerned about taking all the medications prescribed to me and possibly causing damage to various organs. I decided to talk to someone in the physical medicine department at my local hospital. I learned that my hospital no longer offers acupuncture to patients seeking long term treatment. So I decided to seek treatment outside of my medical facility and I received a referral to Steve Phillips, M.A., L.Ac.
I’ve been receiving acupuncture treatments once a week, one hour per session, for six months now. I’ve had great success and feel that I have already met my goals of taking less medicine and feeling more energized. I’m living with less pain and am a lot happier in my life.
I would highly recommend that if you’re experiencing these types of illnesses. Please seek help and strongly consider acupuncture as an alternative to conventional medication. I’m sure you’ll be as pleased as I was with the results.
If you’re looking for a professional, understanding and dedicated acupuncturist, I strongly recommend Steve Phillips. He has done wonders for me. Thank you Steve for helping me feel better.
