“I’ve had lower back and hip pain for over 30 years, but only recently learned that I have severe lumbar spinal stenosis along with a torn labrum and bursitis in my hip. I also have a lot of fatigue due to an auto-immune disorder. Over the years, I’ve tried just about every type of practitioner and method imaginable–both traditional and alternative, including other acupuncturists—to help with these issues. Some provided temporary relief, but never anything sustainable.
I had gotten to the point where I couldn’t take a step without pain, forcing me to decrease my activity level which only exacerbated my issues. When I first saw Amy, I was desperate for some relief and was hoping to get to the point where I could at least walk a few miles a day with minimal pain.
Amy listened and asked detailed questions and seemed to have a good understanding of what was going on in my body. In addition to acupuncture, Amy used electronic therapy and cupping. After just a few sessions, my pain level decreased markedly and my energy level increased to the point where I can finally move and walk more. These are better outcomes than I’ve ever received before.
I highly recommend Amy. She’s a pleasure to work with and—while I wouldn’t go as far as saying having needles stuck in me was enjoyable—Amy did everything she could, including yoga nidra, to make the experience comfortable.” Liz Gordon.
