“I had been battling uterine / hormonal cramps that were lasting 10 days out of each month. I had seen multiple physicians, and everyone thought it was just hormones and nothing could be done to alleviate the problem. I then decided to try acupuncture. After 5 sessions of acupuncture, I was able to get through a cycle with significantly diminished cramping which significantly increased my quality of life.
I love Amy because she is very patient, answers all of my questions and takes great care in explaining every aspect of her treatments. I was happily surprised by my success with acupuncture to date – I had really lost hope that I would be able to alleviate the cramping and I was thrilled to have success.” EM
