When I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy, I immediately began to research treatments that would improve my symptoms. Since doctors cannot provide any definite duration of symptoms or even if the Western medicines (prednisone and anti-virals) are effective, I searched for alternative methods. There was a great amount of information on acupuncture’s effectiveness. I called Almloff Acupuncture and spoke with Danie. She was excited that I was seeking treatment so soon after my symptoms began. I was able to see Danie five days after my diagnosis. After the first treatment, there were visual signs of improvement. I was scheduled for 6 treatments and after 4 sessions, I had improved at least 75%, which was 12 days after my diagnosis. At the end of the sixth session, I was about 95% recovered.
Thanks to the immediate response, concern and caring nature of Danie, I am able to function as I did normally before Bell’s Palsy knocked on my door. Not only did I return to normal, but my stress level has been lowered with the treatments from Danie. Danie also researched, on her own, what herbal treatments would be helpful in my case.
Before this experience, I had only heard stories of acupuncture’s benefits. Now, I am a true believer in TCM.
I have been stricken with Bell’s Palsy. I awakened the morning of February 15th to a very frightening sight and here I am, 5 months later, almost “all better.”
I tried several types of traditional treatments and nothing seemed to help. Then, I started seeing an acupuncturist. I have been going to Almloff Acupuncture since May 21st, twice a week and I am finally getting back to normal.
I am so pleased with my acupuncture treatments. I can finally smile again. I highly recommend acupuncture.
