I am a nurse schooled in Western Medicine (with no experience in herbs or acupuncture) who has suffered since my teenage years with back pain.
Physical therapy, surgery, nerve blocks and oral medicines have brought no lasting relief. Three months ago I came to Lynn depressed and desperate. My pain management physicianís help only went so far. But from the first treatment on, I have felt more alive and have regained an interest in living (my garden hasnít been this tidy in years). No, I cannot explain how or why acupuncture has this effect. But, I can feel the result, much less pain, more energy, better sleep (deeper and longer) and more interest in food. So, thank you, Lynn, from my family and myself.
When I began acupuncture and TCM treatment with Lynn Almloff I was suffering with fibromyalgia, chronic neck pain, sciatica and restless leg syndrome leading to sleep deprivation and chronic fatigue.
After 2 Ĺ months of weekly treatment I was able to discontinue medications for sleep and restless leg syndrome. I now sleep well and no longer suffer with restless leg syndrome. As a result I have twice the amount of energy than when I began treatment.
I no longer suffer with chronic neck pain, unless I have done an activity to aggravate my neck. The sciatica has gone away.
I have found that by following Lynnís recommended treatment plan that I have enjoyed great results. However, missing treatments has resulted in a few setbacks that are resolved when I get back on track with my treatment schedule.
Acupuncture has greatly improved my overall health. I have a sense of well being as well. I have learned from Lynn that the mind, body and spirit are all connected and that the body cannot be treated alone.
