A patient with chronic knee pain
Over the past few months I have been having an issue with Arthritis in my knees. I am only 60 years old but must have got it from wear and tear by jogging and playing sports for years. I recall making fun of the kids in the band at school and now years later I wish I was in the band. I have been told by 3 doctors there was nothing they could do for me as there was no cure for arthritis. I said what do I do and they said lose weight and watch what you eat…no real answer. I then started doing my own research and put a list together. Acupuncture was on the list. I met With Doc Katya and she told me that she could help me and said it would take about 8 visits. Prior to visiting the Clinic I had lots of pain and was unable to do things I like. Most of my pain was when I was sleeping. I would say by my 4th visit most of the pain was gone. To this day I can’t believe it as its almost like a miracle. If anyone reads this trust me it works and I highly recommend it. Also, the Clinic takes most Insurance and you will be greeted by Gretchen the Care Coordinator and they make a great team together. I am not an over religious person but I would put Doc K’s work up there some where between the most regarded doctor and god. Takes Doc K for giving me my life back!!!!
A patient with sciatica
I started acupuncture to alleviate sciatica pain. After many years of trying everything from cortisone shots to physical therapy, I started treatment with Katya. After a few sessions I felt so much better. I am now sleeping better and have a significant decrease in pain and have better range of motion. I am getting my life back. I was skeptical at first and am so happy I made that first appointment.
A veteran with chronic back pain
I had back surgery 1975 which removed disc and fused spine, been in pain over 40 years, can’t sleep good, driving, relaxing, back is always in pain. I tried many different procedures over the years and nothing worked until I found Katya. I never thought i would enjoy acupuncture, I love it. I highly recommend to go see Katya. Five Star
A patient with headaches and other types of pain
Katya is a excellent acupuncturist. My husband had a stroke this year as well as finding out that he has high iron (ferritin) in his body. Since his fall from the stroke he has had experienced a lot of bad, bad, headaches. Katya has relieved his headaches, as well as other pains he has had in his body from previous injuries. She is excellent! Extremely knowledgeable. Katya also takes a huge interest in her patients, and helps them get better in any way that she can. She is a very caring person. I am so grateful to have found her. Would highly recommended!
Why Get Acupuncture Treatment at Artemis Clinic
How acupuncture works for pain
Acupuncture addresses pain on multiple levels. Mainly, it helps restore the body’s own pain management system, while improving the health of nerves, joints, muscles, circulatory, hormonal and nervous system. Our treatment is not a temporary fix, more like a ‘software upgrade’ for the body.
Added bonuses of acupuncture treatment
If, on top of your pain, you have poor sleep, and suffer from stress anxiety, it is much harder for your body to regulate pain on its own. Acupuncture is an excellent antidote for stress and insomnia. After a few treatments you should see improvement in the quality of your sleep, feel more energetic and resilient to stress.
Why you should try acupuncture before drugs, injections and surgery
Western medicine offers pain management solutions that are temporary at best. The downside to most conventional treatments is their side effects that are wearing down the body. Pain medications are toxic to the body. Steroid shots can lead to long-term tissue damage. Surgery, unless clearly indicated, can lead to less pain, but greater disability. The uniting factor in these treatments is their invasive nature. Acupuncture treatment is minimally invasive and generally has no side effects. If you ever thought: “Why can’t my body just fix this pain on its own?”, we recommend that you try acupuncture. Our treatment helps to push the body toward a greater state of health, allowing you to go back to doing the things you love.
