I came to Ackerman Acupuncture after a sleep study diagnosis of restless leg syndrome. My sleep doctor wanted me to take a heavy nerve medication to treat my restless legs. I was tired all the time and never felt refreshed after sleeping, even after 10-12 hours of sleep. After about 4-5 treatments my energy returned! I continue to sleep well but only need 8-9 hours and no naps. I wake up feeling refreshed. Even on weekends I am waking up on my own after 8-9 hours. I quickly stopped the nerve medication and have no problems with my legs. Additionally, treatments have improved my mood and mild depression. As a 46-year old woman, I was beginning to have mild hot flashes. Those are completely gone! I am amazed at how many different aspects of my health and wellness have been positively impacted by acupuncture.
“I am so happy with my weight loss results. After 12 acupuncture treatments in 10 weeks, I feel like a new woman. Ackerman Acupuncture gives you the gentle nudge you need to improve your lifestyle. They make you accountable while making you feel okay about where you’re at in a non-judgmental way and the acupuncture is so relaxing. I am now armed with more lifestyle info and resources than I’d expected. I feel confident now, even in a swimsuit!”
“I had suffered a severe spinal injury that was inoperable. My surgeon gave the options of being placed on a pain pump (constant release of morphine) or seeking an alternative to pain relief. I decided to try acupuncture instead of drug therapy. I couldn’t be more happy. The pain is diminishing with every visit and I am seeing the results I hoped to see. I highly recommend Ackerman Acupuncture. They are concerned professionals with nothing less but the best care for me and my family.”
“As an R.N. for over 30 years, I was skeptical that acupuncture could be a solution for my trigger finger condition (locked knuckle joints). My physicians treated me with steroid injections, hot packs, and of course, pain and anti-inflammatory medications until they ultimately recommended surgery. Luckily for me, a family member suggested I try acupuncture before accepting surgery as a medical option. Aleesha Ackerman helped restore full range of motion to my finger joints and significantly improved my life. Now I recommend acupuncture to all my patients and friends for a variety of conditions. Amazingly, even when I had to leave the state, she searched her network online and was able to recommend another acupuncture practitioner to continue my therapy!
I have total confidence in my caring and competent acupuncturist, Aleesha Ackerman at Ackerman Acupuncture.”
“When I started seeing Aleesha I was at the end of my rope wondering how to cope with menopause and Hyperthyroidism/ Grave’s Disease. I was having a lot of anxiety, irritable, hot flashes, body temperature, sleep, low energy. I noticed the difference shortly after starting. My anxiety, energy, hot flashes have gotten much better. Went from going every week to every three weeks. I went in with an open mind and came out with a new lease on life! Thanks to Aleesha!
“I came to see Aleesha for acupuncture for skin allergies and knee pain.She is so kind and gentle at putting the needles in and I never felt a thing. Acupuncture has helped me out so much with my skin issues. It’s the only thing I have done that has actually worked. Acupuncture also took away my knee pain! I am thankful for Aleesha and acupuncture to help me feel better again.”
“After going to a medical doctor for headaches and chiropractor for neck ache, after 3 times having Ackerman Acupuncture both headaches and neck aches are gone. Going to a Ear Specialist about the loud high pitch buzzing, they said there was nothing could be done. One time at Ackerman Acupuncture, it was 80% gone.”
