Acupuncture Ecology



I found my way to David at Acupuncture Ecology after six months of back and leg pain, ineffective testing and treatment through the more traditional Western medical approach. Briefly, my diagnosis via MRI is spinal stenosis, arthritis, and sciatica.

At the end of six months appointments with medical doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists, I was referred to a neurosurgeon who suggested trying an injection of cortisone into the affected area of the back, followed by rigorous physical therapy, or back surgery.

I had read a good deal about my condition and believed that through proper treatment I could avoid surgery. This led me to an internet search for a practitioner of Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

Within a month of twice weekly one hour treatments I was essentially pain free. I continued to see David somewhat longer for treatment of other systematic issues.

Lower back pain and sciatica is one of the most common conditions leading individuals to seek medical help. It is also a condition for which western medicine has few non-invasive answers. This is the first and only time I have been treated by acupuncture. Frankly, I continue to be amazed at how well the issue was resolved. I’ve been pain free for about three months now.

One other comment I would like to add concerns what I would term “the healing environment” at Acupuncture Ecology. David sets a very low key, low stress environment, especially important for a first timer. He gives you his full, undivided attention for the one hour of you appointment. And he inquires about your whole life, not just the presenting problem.

Dear David:

Please allow me to thank you so very much for your assistance. I have always been very skeptical of alternative medicine. Yet, after only three visits to your office, I feel better than I have for several years. Not only did you help with my original complaint of back pain, but you have also alleviated much of my chronic sinus pain, which i had all but given up on getting treated.

I must say that you have given me such a great outlook and I am very proud to have met you. I am grateful for your patience, your friendly attitude, and your impressive communication skills. Thank you for your care and improvements to my life.

David treated me for about a year. I came to him with low energy and chronic headaches. While he quickly can address immediate symptoms his main concern is solving the root of the problem. Through extensive diagnosis and continual treatment of acupuncture, herbs, and additional methods of Chinese medicine he not only cured symptoms but resolved the cause of my ill health. After long-term treatment under David, I found not only had my problems been resolved but that I had a wealth of energy I never had before.
