My name is M.P., I am a 62 year old female. I lifted a large bag of gardening soil and thus pulled out my back. I have had various aches, pains and sprains in my back but this was different, in that the pain would not go away. I was on complete rest for a month, on medication and saw doctors regularly, but the pain was bad. It was diagnosed as sciatica. A nurse at the doctors office recommended acupuncture and gave me a card for the Acupuncture Center. I always thought that acupuncture was well, weird. I had no idea what the process entailed but decided to give it a try. It certainly couldn’t hurt and may possibly help. I met Candace and other kind people at the Center. Everyone was very friendly and calm. Acupuncture really helped me-I don’t know how but it did. I remember not being able to walk from my car to the door of the Center. Candace always asked how my pain was and where the pain was. We had a fine partnership for the nine sessions. Today could be my last session, I’m glad and sad to say. I would recommend this Center to anyone with this type of pain which is difficult for conventional medicine to treat. You should try it and allow your imagination to influence you-at least not in this instance.
