Migraines / Fibromyalgia
"I started coming to A Way of Life Acupuncture for migraines. I have suffered from them for most of my adult life.
Normally I have 6-8 migraines a month. In August 2010, I had the worst migraine I have ever experienced and suddenly a few days later, I lost my mother. I began having migraines on a daily basis for over a month. I contacted A Way of Life Acupuncture from a friend's suggestion and decided to give acupuncture a try. From the very first treatment, I have felt better. The overall feeling of well-being was instant. I have been seeing her since October and the frequency of the migraines reduce every week. It has been 3 or 4 weeks since I have had a migraine. I have also noticed that when I do get one, they are not as intense. If I can not make it to Christine, my prescription migraine medication usually takes care of the headache in one does. Sometimes all it takes is a heating pad to make the migraine go away. I have never felt this good in my life. During my initial visit with Christine for migraines, we discussed other health issues I was experiencing. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2008 and have been taking 8-10 pills daily to control the pain. After starting my treatments, within the first few months I weaned myself off the pain meds completely and I feel wonderful. Not only do I not have pain, I have so much energy to exercise and have been losing weight. I was also able to walk in the Susan G Komen 5k this year, which I had missed the last two years because I could not walk that far. I feel very comfortable referring friends and family to Christine, as I am 100% satisfied with my experience at A Way of Life Acupuncture. I have never felt better in my life and my quality of life has improved so much in such a short period of time, my friends and family are amazed."

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (CRPS) / Migraines / Fibromyalgia / Pain Med Withdrawal
"My husband actually sought out Christine’s help due to my progressive decline in health. I was diagnosed with Reflex
Sympathetic Dystrophy/CRPS and the medical doctors, although compassionate, were only able to minimize my symptoms with narcotic painkillers. Acupuncture and herbs have helped me manage my pain levels without the mind-numbing effects of the medications. In fact, the help given by Christine has enabled me to go through the painful process of withdrawing off all medications without being hospitalized. She helped me manage nausea, balance, dizziness, muscular aches, and ringing in the ears. The doctors even added fibromyalgia to the list of diagnoses for my body of pain. Upon asking them what they can do to help it, I was again told they could manage the pain with medication but no cure was available. Treating symptoms is not the approach I was looking for, so acupuncture is more in line with what I wanted from my health care professional…a fix it/get me better at the core level mentality. The treatment has been helpful and will hopefully bring a full resolution to the issues.
Sadly, chronic health issues and severe pain had given me a very dismal outlook on life thus antidepressants were also prescribed by my physician. I had even tried numerous health remedies on my own without success. Now, with the acupuncture and herbs, I’m off those medications too and I’m free from the resulting side effects of sleepiness.
Another miracle, while seeking help from acupuncture for my other health problems, has been to come to the office with a migraine headache and nausea that accompanies such beasts then within a few minutes of treatment
the headache is completely gone or decreased enough to function fully. Furthermore, due to my ongoing treatments, Christine has helped with acute health issues such as bronchitis, sinusitis, and allergies. Christine blends professionalism, care, and love for her clients like no other physician does. I give her an 11 on a scale of 1-10. Her knowledge is remarkable and she is able to apply it because she really listens to your concerns & needs. With all the help I’ve received at A Way of Life, my quality of life has improved dramatically. In fact…I want to live again. I can continue to get better and I will. I have hope for tomorrow."
