No negative side effects
Thank you for asking me to do an acupuncture testimonial. My personal story is an example of the timelessness of acupuncture.
I practiced acupuncture as a physician in Romania 25 years ago. At that time it was something new and people used it to treat their chronic diseases along with Western medicine. At that time, very few physicians had been trained to do acupuncture, but the few practitioners achieved success and people were willing to pay for this treatment, even with government sponsored healthcare.
When I came to the United States, I continued to work in the healthcare field, but stopped my acupuncture practice. Working in the healthcare arena can be very stressful and one of the symptoms of this stress are migraine headaches. The migraines I had before starting acupuncture treatment were debilitating. I was taking medication for the migraines, but it was not very effective. One day, somebody gave me the advice to try acupuncture. I said to myself,”How in the world could I forget about that?” So, I ended up at Steve Phillips acupuncture practice. I had suffered from migraines for more than fifteen years, but after a few sessions with Steve I saw immediate results; less severity and less occurrence of migraines.
Besides migraines, I also receive treatment for arthritis in my knees. The pain relief has been considerable.
Due to my experience I personally encourage people to use this ancient and classical Asian way of treatment. Unlike conventional medication, acupuncture has no negative side effects.
