Injuries and Pain Conditions – Patient Stories

Meniere’s Disease

I would certainly recommend acupuncture from Julia at Elements of Health. My treatments started at a time when I felt that Meniere’s Disease had taken over my life and I can now say that I have a totally different perspective. Julia is a very warm and caring practitioner who has helped so much in controlling the symptoms of my disease, especially vertigo. I always finish an appointment feeling relaxed and that I am an important part of the treatment plan. The treatments do not cause discomfort and are actually very relaxing. Thanks, Julia, for giving me back control in my life. ~CA

Chronic Pain

The best thing that I’ve ever done for myself is walk through the threshold of Elements of Health. I’ve had chronic back pain from bulging discs for over 2 decades and after having a series of acupuncture treatments, the pain has been reduced to a manageable level. I look forward to an ongoing regime that will keep the pain in check. I have my life back! Stephanie at Elements of Health was recommended to me by a specialist and also by a physiotherapist. Everyone at Elements of Health is extremely professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. I would recommend them highly. ~CB

Three months ago I was rear-ended in a car accident and I suffered some soft tissue damage to my neck and back. I tried different forms of treatment for my injury but found I obtained the best results from acupuncture. After only 5 treatments I knew that this form of therapy was healing me the quickest. I am extremely confident that I am doing so well today because of acupuncture. I recommend Stephanie Curran to anyone wanting to try acupuncture – I’m so glad I did! ~ JM

Low back/disk pain

A year ago I came to Elements of Health at the recommendation of my physician. A bulging disc in my lower back was getting progressively worse; I’d tried physical therapy, chiropractors, myofascial release, yoga — nothing gave me lasting relief. And, at age 50, I had decided to go back to school. Sitting for long hours aggravated my back worse than ever. I am convinced I wouldn’t have been able to complete my studies without Elements of Health…

Knee pain and arthritis

I first came to the Elements of Health Centre in the hopes that acupuncture would be helpful in mitigating the pain of knee injuries and resultant arthritis. After only a few treatments, I found that my pain levels had decreased dramatically, and I was becoming more flexible as the pain in my knees decreased. Now, after two months of treatment, I find that I am able to train harder, exercise longer, and generally am more confident in the health of my knees. Acupuncture has made a huge difference in the health of my knees. ~ IW
