Hi every one,
My name is Shawnna Martin and I am a 19 year old, full time college student. I guess I wanted to make sure to get my story out so that others who are curious or a skeptic about acupuncture can hear from a real person.
About 2 months ago I began acupunture treatment for lower back pain, also besides the acupunture I have a huge array of those health problems... depression, generalized anxiety disorder, digestive problems, horrible period cramps, constant tiredness, mood swings, head aches, dizziness, and there are a few more... anyways when I went to Brooke I just went in hopes of curing back pain that had come out of no where and was dibilitating. It was so bad I couldn't move without being in pain and even sleeping was hard to do.
At my first appointment we focused on my back and after one treatment I was already feeling so much better, 2 months later my back pain is 100% under control and guess what? Many of the problems I had before are gone too! I am currently taking herbs so I can wean off of my anti-depressant medications and go a more holistic route. I still have a problem with my constant fatigue (a problem with my spleen chi) and we are currently working on that in my sessions. I was doubtful when I first made my appointment but didnt want my doctor to just hand me a bottle of pain killers and tell me to take one when I am in pain. I am so happy with acupunture and would encourage everyone to try it!
