Chiari Malformation with Syrinx / Migraines / Menstrual Issues

"Chiari Malformation with Syrinx is a fluid cyst on the spinal cord caused by crowding at the base of my skull.  The neurosurgeon said a cranial decompression surgery was my only option.  I decided to try acupuncture.  Since receiving acupuncture treatments with Christine at A Way of Life Acupuncture, I have avoided the cranial decompression surgery and reduced the pressure on the spine, and eradicating the fluid cyst.  Within 6 months the cyst was smaller in size and by 1 year, the cyst was completely gone.  My neurosurgeon said there is no other case of the cyst going away without surgery.  (I have 2 MRI's that prove a complete reduction of the spinal cyst.) 

Prior to starting acupuncture, I also suffered severe migraines, extreme menstrual cramps, headaches and vomiting before and during menstruation.   I have far less frequent migraines with regular stress management treatments. When I do have an active migraine, Christine is able to resolve the migraine that prior trips to the ER could not resolve.  Christine has also helped to alleviate the various menstrual issues.  I am very satisfied with my treatments with Christine and refer friends and family to see her."
