I recently acquired an injury to my piriformis from running. The pain was almost unbearable and prevented me from working. I saw Shannon who adjusted my sacrum. I immediately felt the shift in my tight lower back muscles. She did a thorough assessment and demonstrated stretches for me to do at home. She also asked me back the next day for a short visit to make sure my sacrum stayed adjusted. I have never had a chiropractor do this. I felt taken care of. The following day I saw Erin, the LMT. Erin not only worked my tight glute and hip muscles, but addressed an old neck injury that causes me constant pain. I have seen many therapists for my neck but none have gone as deeply as Erin. I actually walked out with full range of motion which I haven’t had for years. Lastly, I was experiencing some compression on my sciatic nerve from the inflammation around my piriformis. I had numbness in my foot and didn’t feel confident on my feet. I was consulted by Lisa, an acupuncturist, who immediately found the places that were obstructing the flow to my foot. I left her office walking well and went to work a few hours later where I am required to be on my feet for hours, with very little pain. Overall, my experience at Well Balanced was fantastic. They got me in to see someone the same day I called. The team of practitioners all took a lot of time with me assessing not only my immediate issue, but offering advice and insight to my overall body health. I will definitely return for not only acute care, but maintenance for my active lifestyle.
I have been a client and friend of Well Balanced Acupuncture for over a year and have learned a great deal about the benefits of acupuncture and how it can improve many aspects of your life. Since starting my treatment, I have fully recovered from a lingering leg injury, improved my posture, and eliminated all of my lower back pains. It is also the most relaxing treatment I have ever received that does not involve any drugs or oily rub downs. To this day I continue the treatments for the sore muscles and joints (I am not as young as I use to be), life and work stresses, and to learn new ways to keep me “Well Balanced”. If you have not tried acupuncture it is never too late and Well Balanced is a perfect place to start.
The past couple of years I have watched family members and friends become ill and struggle. Watching this I have made a personal pact with myself to get healthy..and stay healthy. As I age my ailments seem to stem from my structure, most notably my knees and back.
I was introduced to Lisa a couple of years ago and she has become my go-to for these issues. I am absolutely amazed with the care, compassion, honesty and enthusiasm I get from Lisa in working with me to get healthy and more importantly, stay healthy. Her explanations as to what is going on with me, the plan of attack and how long the correction will take have been spot-on. She is not interested in stringing you along for more visits if these visits are not necessary.
Since Well Balances move to their new digs, it has been great to pull Dr. Shannon, my new chiropractor, in on the correction process. Don’t be fooled by her petite stature. She has been able to move me in a way that so many chiropractors have be unable to. I appreciate the team effort, the communication and most important knowing that I will see a change in my issues and the fact that I won’t have to come back unless it is warranted.
One last thought. Aidan, the new office manager is a joy to be greeted to when walking through the door. She is thorough and knowledgeable on the ins and outs of the insurance end of things. When she is not sure about something, she has always followed through and reported back the information, allowing me to make personal monetary decisions.
All-in-all, I am very happy to have Well Balanced as one of my go-to’s for my health and am pleased to recommend my friends to them.
