After knee replacement surgery I began experiencing pain in my calf. After being treated with acupuncture, the pain in my legs was significantly reduced. I noticed a few hours after being treated that I didn't notice the pain in my legs.
I am on several prescription medications due to a heart condition, among other things. I am no longer taking Celebrex due to the warnings about that drug. Acupuncture has helped me manage my arthritis pain with any prescription medication. I'm very pleased with this.
Catherine is atypical compared to most health practitioners that I've been to. I immediately felt comfortable and more importantly, understood and supported. I've seen her about once a week now for about three months for a variety of things. Though most were considered "minor" she treated me as a person, not a symptom. Each treatment I received needles in different places; I've felt relaxed, healed, and nurtured. Catherine intuitively knows which points to work on any given day. I highly recommend her!
