More than thirty years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis with pain that would increase as time passed. I sought relief through many medical venues that included medication relief (prescription and over-the-counter) and many different vitamins, lotions and heating treatments. Nothing worked. For a number of years, I had been advised by medical doctors and specialists (neurologists) not to have surgery. I even tried several acupuncturists. However, after just a few initial treatments provided by acupuncturist, Nancy Knode, I began to develop a painless dexterity that I had not experienced in many years. A subsequent diagnosis of spinal stenosis and multiple spinal spurs intensified the already constant pain in my upper back and neck area. Then, I got relief from Nancy Knode’s acupuncture treatments. Since starting acupuncture treatments with Nancy Knode, my daily pain has been significantly reduced and often disappears.
My hands have been another source of my severe arthritic pain. The changing seasons intensifies this suffering. These spurs in my hands often severely limit my daily efforts at dressing and cooking. Nancy Knode’s acupuncture treatments have been very effective in reducing, and often eliminating entirely, these very annoying and troublesome aches and pains.
Now, I am enjoying a better quality of life & a feeling of wholesome well-being. Thank you, Nancy.
