I have been seeing Jose at Family Acupuncture and Herbs of Reading for treatment of back problems since 2007. I was initially skeptical of alternative therapies, but was convinced to try acupuncture by my wife after Jose successfully treated her for repetitive stress injuries. Since starting treatment I have not lost any work days due to back spasms. My back's ability to withstand the stresses of heavy household chores has improved significantly. Jose's treatment has allowed me to better control my condition and to function at a higher level than would otherwise be possible. This is something that had not been realized though conventional medical therapies and is, to paraphrase the credit card commercial, priceless.
