I needed relief from chronic pain in my back, hips, and sciatic nerve. I have had these problems for a number of years. My doctors used physical therapy, and pain medication. I can no longer take anti-inflammatory medication. My acupuncture treatments have helped a lot. I can now relax, and I feel almost pain free. It has helped my attitude also. My activities have improved. Michele is a wonderful person, caring, compassionate, and an excellent acupuncture therapist!
