Perhaps there is something wrong with me, but I had a very negative reaction to Dr. Walkey. It began when I arrived. I sat in Dr. Walkey's waiting room for fifteen minutes without seeing another person. i wasn't sure if she knew I was there. When she emerged from a treatment room she gave me some paperwork to fill out then vanished again. I waited another half hour before she came back out. By this time, having spent 45 minutes in her waiting room, I was admittedly not in a good mood. She apologized for the wait, which helped, and I followed her into a treatment room looking forward to the treatment. I have had fatigue issues for many years and have had no relief from Western medicine. I also used to get acupuncture regularly but hadn't visited an acupuncturist for some time and I was looking forward to the needles!
Dr. Walkey began to question me about my medical history and seemed to diagnose me about halfway through my history. When I questioned her decision she suggested I ""open my mind"" and stop using my left brain.
Next, Dr. Walkey had me hold some glass vials, filled with liquids, and pushed down on my (other) outstretched arm, a form of diagnosis known as muscle testing. She told me that energy waves from the substance in the bottle would interact with my body's energy and that would be communicated to her by how hard I pushed my arm against her hand.
I would like to pause here. Perhaps Dr. Walkey is a great healer, as others have suggested, and perhaps adrenal support would help me, as my apparently weakened arm suggested. Both of these things might be true, but I seriously doubt that energy waves from a diluted substance encased in glass, probably airtight, communicated with my own personal energy field and interfered with my ability to contract my muscles. But, that's my left brain thinking.
When I questioned this method Dr. Walkey moved her chair aside so I could leave.
So, I wasted two hours in driving time, sitting in her front room time, and finally being diagnosed by muscle testing. She never felt my pulse, looked at my tongue or inquired about my urine or bowel movements, all of which are the primary diagnostic tools of acupuncture.
Perhaps Dr. Walkey was having a bad day. Perhaps she's a wonderful intuitive healer who uses methodology I am not willing to accept. But in my experience she was unprofessional and a poor communicator.
