Jim’s Story: Chronic Pain and Anxiety Relief

Leave a comment

Jim came to me over a month ago for low back, knee, ankle and shingles pain, along with lifelong anxiety. Yesterday was his fifth treatment. When he sat down on my couch at the beginning of our session he looked at me apologetically and confessed, “I was trying to think of what I wanted to work on today but everything is doing so well I don’t know what to say!” In addition to relief from pain he had suffered with for years, just taking the time to come in for an hour in the middle of his busy week (he is the father of five and works a physically-demanding job at New Seasons) is making all the difference in his health. Focused work on his back, knees and ankles improved the pain almost immediately, and his anxiety is down, which keeps the shingles pain at bay and helps everything else.  Jim is a poster child for the healing power of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. As many times as I have seen it happen I am still constantly amazed.
