This is one patient's success story. I am sharing it because each patient's success story varies a little or sometimes drastically. This patient's success story shows that sometimes the road to success has its ups and downs and then suddenly things get much better. In the end this patient got better and stayed better because she continued her balance method acupuncture therapy until she was 100% better.

If you or someone you know suffers from sciatica pain then please share this patient's success story. There is hope of living a pain free life. 

A sciatica success story

1st session, the patient arrives with pain and with balance method acupuncture therapy, pain decreases about 50% by the end of 1st session.

NEXT DAY patient returns per treatment plan. Quality of left thigh pain has changed and is no longer sharp. 

Then, 2 days later, the patient returns as planned and reports there is no longer any back pain. Pain in the hip, groin and thigh remain the same.

After 2 more days, the patient returns as planned, and the pain level of the thigh and groin has improved. The hip pain level has improved slightly.

Due to work schedule, patient returns 9 days later, not as planned. Pain level has increased in groin and hip but thigh pain remains improved. Patient returns 2 days later and reports hip pain has worsened and is interrupting the patient's sleep.

Then, patient returns 4 days later and reports no pain anywhere but feels some tightness in the hip.

Finally, one week later the patient returns with no pain anywhere and no tightness in the hip.


Course of therapy: 8  sessions in 4 weeks

Results: No more pain

Total Cost: $370.00

Balance Method Acupuncture was applied only to the patient’s hands and arms. No acupuncture was applied directly to the areas of pain.

Results will vary from patient to patient
