My back feels better and my libido is higher !

I have been a patient of Dr.Pentland's for the past 2 months. My weekly treatments are specific to lower back problems and infertility. These visits have been beneficial in helping me feel less stressed and more relaxed. I have noticed a dramatic decrease in my lower back pain with each visit. I have also noticed an increase in my libido since the start of my treatments. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who wants to find balance in their bodies whether it's back pain or infertility. Thank you Dr.Pentland

Results were quite noticable

This was my first experience with acupuncture. I feel very fortunate to have met Julie and had her as my therapist. She guided me through the process very professionally and sensitive to my needles. The results especially after the second treatment were quite noticeable and of great comfort for my arthritis. I highly recommend this treatment and can assure “first” time patients to relax and enjoy.

After the second treatment I was able to sleep

I have been a patient since fall 2009. I had severe sciatica. After the second treatment I was able to sleep and the pain began to ease. The treatments also reduced most of the numbness in my feet. In fact, one foot is almost fully recovered. With the advice of Julie I also made it through the winter months completely healthy. I have recommended AcuCare to my friends. They have also agreed with me after their treatments.

I recommend Erin for your first time acupuncture

Erin Flynn is a true professional and an incredibly caring person. I first started seeing her more than seven years ago to assist with stomach cramps, when she was still a student. After my first meeting with her I knew that it was an amazing gift that I had found her. Erin is so knowledgeable and a wonderful resource on issues, treatments and research related to women and all other health issues. Erin helped reduce my stomach pains and stress. She takes her time and really listens to your concerns and questions.

By the end of that day, my arm was back to normal...

I strained my arm muscle exercising and through various aggressive movements. It was so uncomfortable and sore, it was distracting me from my work, and I couldn’t lift anything. I received one treatment of acupuncture from Julie Shillabeer, of Acucare Acupuncture. The next morning, my arm felt significantly better, and by the end of that day, my arm was back to normal. Julie’s calm presence, professionalism, and competence helped me feel better quickly and effectively. Thanks Julie!

Injured in an auto accident

I was injured in auto accident prior to this trip. I was experiencing pain in upper and lower back with pain and great amount of stiffness in my neck. Upon 3 treatments of acupuncture I had increased my range of motion in my neck and greatly reduced pain in upper and lower back areas.

Recovery from repetitive stress injuries

I have been seeing Sean Quigley for about six months now. Before treatment with Sean, I was in constant pain from repetitive stress and injuries in my joints. I tried many alternatives to aid recovery of my hips and shoulders. From Bowen treatment to Chiropractic to Yoga, nothing seemed to give me lasting relief. As soon as I started seeing Sean, my symptoms began to disappear. It is now to the point where I can't remember the constant pain I once accepted to be a part of everyday life. Thank You so much Sean!

Gentle and effective

Very professional! Erin was able to fit me into her tight schedule. I have been to a few acupuncturists and Erin was very gentle and very effective. I would highly recommend others to go see her, especially for girl stuff.

First time in 20 years I haven't taken Advil with my menstruation...

Just wanted to pass along some positive feedback to Dr.Fisher.

After my Tuesday morning session I felt fantastic all day! Hard to pinpoint exactly, but happy, calm and productive.
Also for the first time in 20 years I have yet to take Advil with my menstruation. I usually have to take 2-6 advil to get me through the first day but not this time:)

Thank you!

I had suffered from really bad arthritis for several years

I have wanted to go to an acupuncturist for some time now, and I am glad that I finally did. I have suffered from really bad arthritis for several years now, and it especially affects my hands. After one treatment, my hands were completely pain free. After that, I made three more appointments until the last day. Julie is the best, and I wish she could live in my house! I would not have been able to write this six days ago.

Improvements in menstrual cycle, endometriosis pain, & general health !

I was diagnosed with endometriosis after experiencing both bleeding and pain during intercourse. An ultrasound examination showed that I had a 10cm endometrioma on my right ovary and laparoscopic surgery was scheduled to follow. During surgery it was discovered that I had severe endometriosis affecting my ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix and bowel.
