Appropriate care

I have been an Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapist in the Sacramento region for over 25 years. During that time I have directed several patients with various pathologies, including family members, to Steve for his expert assistance. Recently, I utilized Mr. Phillips for a musculo-skeletal injury of my own which was not responding to treatment as […]

My M.D. said there was nothing he could do to help

I had a very painful outbreak of shingles on one hip bone in front. After the blisters healed, the pain was excruciating, especially when my clothing touched my skin in that area. My M.D. said there was nothing he could do to help, this might last for months. I had four acupuncture sessions with Dr. […]

With acupuncture treatments, I have regained some of the strength in my legs

I had polio when I was 14 months old. Between the ages of 4 and 17, I had 18 orthopedic operations. Many people who have polio start experiencing muscle weakness and burning in their extremities about 30 years after the onset of polio. I am fortunate that I did not start to experience these symptoms […]

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,

After two Kaiser Physicians recommended surgery on my right shoulder rotator cuff, I refused and opted for painful physical therapy which did nothing but created more pain, I sought help from Acupuncture. As a result, after just 7 treatments from Steve, I regain […]

Improved immunity

I had just finished a course of antibiotics for a bronchial infection and I also had stabbing pain (from neuralgia) behind my left ear. After one treatment of acupuncture the pain behind my ear was gone! I […]

I pushed for a referral for acupuncture

Here it goes: In 2005 I injured my hip badly in a boat incident. I had tremendous pain and could not sleep on my right side at all. For a year I pursued the conventional medical treatment, took pain medication, did physical therapy and exercise. Also there was never a definitive diagnosis. This treatment produced […]

No negative side effects

Hello Steve, 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 […]

Decreased the pain tremendously!

A couple of years ago, I injured my thumb joint. The pain was excruciating. The acupuncture treatments that Steve provided decreased the pain tremendously! I was able to return to work and to take less pain medication (motrin and tylenol). I have recommended it to some of my patients, too.
