I entered into acupuncture treatment after spending 10 years in chronic pain, with many other symptoms. I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Sleep Apnea, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, chronic Sciatica, IBS, and had continual sinus infections and vascular headaches/migraines. Along with daily widespread pain, I had such a huge level of fatigue that I needed to take a several hour nap each day, even after taking the Ritalin prescribed to me to help combat the daytime sleepiness. I had tried every method I could think of to overcome all of these symptoms, including physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic treatment, epidural injections, and cortisone injections, as well as taking Cymbalta and other medications which were supposed to help the pain. My many doctors told me I was doing everything I could.
Since seeing Christie for the first time this past summer, I have been on a continual path toward healing and wellness. To say that she has changed my life is an understatement. I no longer take any medications- prescription or otherwise, have been pronounced "cured" or in remission from Fibromyalgia by my Rheumatologist, have lost weight without even trying, and have more balance in my life than I have ever had. I drive in to the city from the Northern suburbs every week or two, and would drive as long as it took to get to Source Healing. I consider myself blessed to have found Christie- if you are lucky enough to be treated by her or her incredible staff, you will see what I mean!
Pros: Peaceful, healing environment with incredibly helpful staff
