When did it begin?

  • I had a virus 2 years prior to starting acupuncture. A hospitalization and several doctors later I decided to try acupuncture.

Besides acupuncture, what other things did you try?

Donna’s Testimonial 

Donna came to LK Acupuncture with constant nagging back pain. Utilizing Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and Chiropractic care at New Horizons Family Chiropractic -she is now pain free and can happily continue her active lifestyle without any hesitation!

When did you first come to LK Acupuncture?

  • I first came to LK Acupuncture in August, 2016. I googled acupuncture in my area, Yoga 360 came up, and since the company has a great reputation I figured I would give it a shot.

What was your condition?

  • I suffered from chronic upper/mid back pain. It was absolutely debilitating and greatly affected my quality of life including interrupted sleep, mid-day fatigue, quick to temper, and overall misery. I am an extremely active person both physically and mentally so this pain had me bewildered than exercise alone could not solve this, I was beginning to despair…

When did it begin?

  • Acute pain (re)surfaced the summer of 2016. I was treated 10 years ago in the same area through traditional means such as a primary care doctor, an orthopedic specialist, and pain management. The problem with these methods is they rely on DRUGS to mask the problem, instead of getting to the root and working inside out.

Besides acupuncture, what other things did you try?

  • I have had great results with chiropractic and therapeutic massage coupled with acupuncture.

What results have you had here at LK Acupuncture?

  • I have had terrific, long lasting results with LK Acupuncture! I firmly believe it is because Liz is treating the entire person, not just outward symptoms! I am a true believer in assessing all aspects of a person’s life (mind, body, spirit) and determine how it is affecting wellness and treat from the inside out!- Donna V.

Danielle’s Testimonial 

“My body was in a constant state of fight or flight and it had finally reached the point where my systems were exhausted. I feel like my body was unable to heal and in someways attacking itself.”-Danielle

When did you first come to LK Acupuncture?

  • I found LK Acupuncture online. I was specifically searching for someone who practiced Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

What was your condition?

  • I had a number of conditions, but the ones that caused me to seek care were related to digestion issues and random skin rashes. I have also suffered from unbearable PMS. While my rashes didn’t hurt or itch, they affected my eyelids and armpits. They were very red and unsightly. Also, I was not digesting any food I ate and therefore not absorbing any nutrients. My PMS was filled with nausea, horrible cramps, headaches and heavy bleeding. I was miserable. I also had an awful stabbing, throbbing pain under my right shoulder blade. It was constant, nothing relieved it.

When did it begin?

  • The rashes began about 4-6 months before I came in for care. My digestion issues had been around on and off most my adult life. The PMS was awful from the first period as a teenager. The shoulder pain was an issue for years.

Besides acupuncture, what other things did you try?

  • I had been to a physician about the PMS. They only prescribed the pill which raised my blood pressure and made me paranoid. I tried a number of topical treatments for the skin rashes. None of them helped. As far as the digestive issues, I have been on and off elimination diets a good part of my adult life. They would help for a short period of time and then I would flare up again. My shoulder pain did not respond to any PT, massage therapy or chiro care.

What results have you had here at LK Acupuncture?

  • From the first treatment I noticed a difference in my shoulder. My rashes cleared up about 6 weeks into care. My digestion and PMS improved almost immediately. I have only had one bad period since I started care. My headaches are much less frequent and no longer migraines. My shoulder pain is completely gone. I feel that I am able to cope with stress much betters a result of my treatments.
    -Danielle

Patient Success Stories Continued..

  • I injured my back several years ago from slipping on ice which led to scapular winging. Since then I experienced many flare ups that were so bad that I had difficulty raising my right arm over my shoulder. I was told that this would be an ongoing issue and that physical therapy is my only option at this point. With my most recent flare up, I decided to try acupuncture. Liz was amazing! After the first visit, I began to feel some relief. When I was doing physical therapy it took several weeks to get relief. By the third visit, my scapula was no longer noticeably out. I am definitely a true believer in acupuncture! -Jackie
