I suffered from fatigue, headaches, tight shoulders and colds at least weekly for several years. My headaches, although not completely gone, are significantly less in frequency and intensity. I feel more energy and, in general, less stressed and more happy. My wife, suffered from problems (that I won't detail) that made her unable to sleep through the night, but after just three treatments she slept through the entire night for the first time in over five years.\r
I went first for a consultation and he listened intently as I relayed my litany of ailments for at least 30 minutes.. He then asked me questions and told me what I could expect from treatment. The next visit I filled out the diagnosis forms and he spent another 30 minutes going over all my symptoms. Maybe I've been to the wrong doctors, but I've hardly had a western Dr. look me in the eye or look up from their clipboard, never mind listen so patiently while I described my symptoms. \r
Since I don't have insurance, it's a great bargain for the care I receive compared to what I would pay at a western Dr. It's also a great stress relief knowing that I have someone to go to in case I need medical care that won't put into debt.\r
Each session costs around $100 or so including acupuncture, Chinese massage, (sometimes cupping) and herb prescription --sometimes tablets, sometimes he will make a custom powder.\r
He is also refreshingly honest. He will tell you immediately if he can help you or not and how soon you can expect results. I appreciated being told that he could not help some of my problems. Two Saturday's ago, I came down with a very bad headache, and he agreed to meet me on about his day off and made me a special herbal recipe. He goes out of his way to help you.\r
It's a bit of a drive from our place in NE Durham (about 30 mins) but it's worth it.
