In Chinese medicine, we recognize that Qi, or energy, must flow freely throughout the body. Where there is blockage, there is pain. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are effective for many types of pain including:
- Muscuo-skeletal pain such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain
- Menstrual pain
- Headaches, including migraines
I had plantar fasciitis for over a year and had tried a cortisone shot which was of no help. I went to Susan a month before leaving on a vacation as I really wanted to get rid of this pain before the trip. I had five acupuncture treatments and two foot soaks and had great results. Day two of the vacation, my wife asked me how my foot was and I said “What foot pain?” Freedom from pain was just one great part of the vacation!
I came to Susan because of shoulder pain, which she took care of and taught me how to prevent it from coming back. I keep coming back because of all the other benefits I receive from acupuncture with her. It is amazing!
I have suffer from chronic migraines and have tried everything under the sun. I was always skeptical about alternative medicine but was desperate. This is the first treatment that has provided significant relief. The staff was very helpful in explaining the treatment. The clinic offers a very relaxing atmosphere.
I’d had a headache every day for three months when I called Crocus Hill Oriental Medicine. I had heard that acupuncture could help and I no longer wanted to take painkillers just so I could get through the day. In a matter of two weeks, my headaches were drastically reduced both in severity and frequency. Besides just taking care of my headaches, my practitioner helped me manage my stress and PMS–two things that I had just come to think were part of life. The key is that she takes the time to ask questions and she sincerely cares about helping me live my life better. Even when I lose balance a bit with too much sugar or no sleep, I know that she will take care of me without judgment. Her calming personality and high level of expertise make me trust her implicitly. When I go in I know that I will laugh, relax, and learn something new, and be all taken care of.
