Like all of the other 5 star reviews, I just can't say enough good about Acupuncture NW. After seeking treatment for sciatica through 2 chiropractors with limited results, I was referred to Sarah for treatment. Unfortunately, because she is so good, she books up quickly. Fortunately, her friendly and compassionate staff helped slip me in right away. Sarah factored in everything about my condition (not just the acute and chronic pains and physiology behind it, but all of the realities of my life that affected or were affected by the condition) before recommending a treatment plan. In discussing my situation with her, I felt completely at ease because of Sarah's nurturing energy (and their spa like atmosphere helps too) while we discussed my situation, allowing us to best get at the whole picture before treating. Also, she deciphered all of my imaging reports (including a half-completed MRI) in order to best target the treatments. In addition to acupuncture, Sarah thought I could benefit from treatment with a TENS unit to relax some of the muscles causing pain. The combination of acupuncture and TENS has worked wonders with my sciatica. Previous to finding Sarah, I had pursued a myriad of exercises, workouts, chiropractors appointments, dietary changes, etc. enduring several months of the worst chronic pain I've ever had without finding significant relief with any of the other modalities. Now, with just a month of Sarah's combined acupuncture and TENS unit treatments, I'm 90% better and am confidant that I'm quickly headed towards 100%. I have had a variety and plethora of alternative care treatments in Portland with varying success, so I speak with experience when I say Sarah definitely had an impressive level of success treating me for sciatica. I would very highly recommend her to anyone with acute/chronic pain issues, or just anyone who needs/wants amazing acupuncture (and/or TENS) for whatever ails them.
