I am very glad to have my life back

July 11, 2007

I first came to Steve Phillips Acupuncture Clinic in January of this year with severe head pain as a result of a bout with the shingles. The shingles had left me with a damaged nerve on the left side of my forehead. The pain was excruciating and my traditional medicine provider suggested steroid injections directly into my head as the best treatment for the pain. The side effects were numerous and I opted to seek alternative treatments.

Steve started me on twice weekly acupuncture treatments with small needles placed in a circular pattern on my forehead going outward from the center of the pain. We continued this for about a month and then as the pain began to lessen we went to weekly treatments. I still have some pain but I have regained feeling to most of my forehead and I am now able to deal with the pain and numbness that is left. I am still being treated by Steve but we have moved the treatments to every other week and I plan to continue with this regimen until I am pain free. I don’t profess to understand the healing methodology of acupuncture but I am glad I tried it and I am very glad to have my life back.
