Spinal Stenosis and Herniated Disks
After an MRI in 2009, I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and herniated disks. I was told that I must have back surgery. I refused and elected to see Rik Ehmann and try acupuncture. That decision changed my life for the better.
When I first saw Rik, I was able to walk only with great pain. After my first visit, the pain was greatly diminished and I could move about better. Since my second visit to Rik Ehmann, I have taken no pain killers, and the pain in my back has been eliminated. My hip and leg pain are greatly reduced and nearly eliminated. Because my muscles are now relaxed, my balance is better and I no longer have a great fear of falling,
Over time, as a result of conversations with Rik, I found myself making small changes in my life style and my general health improved. I found my acupuncture treatments helped with a sore hip, my back, sore feet, my breathing, my digestive issues and many other problems.
For me, the most amazing thing was when Rik “released” my tail bone. Apparently it had gotten jammed when I fell and landed on my tailbone over five years ago. He gave me a treatment and loosened it. The pain I had been experiencing at night disappeared with the first treatment. After the second treatment, my legs slowly improved until they worked better than they had in years and I was able to walk easier and for a longer time. My legs seemed to swing from my hips more easily and did not feel as tight as they had before. The result was wonderful and astounding because I had not realized I had lost so much flexibility until I got it back. I still feel the good results.
As a result of my treatments, my well being and outlook on life have improved tremendously.
Muscle Cramps and Heat Exhaustion
I had been to doctors for years seeking help. They told me I was within the normal range of whatever test that had been performed. I continued to feel exhausted, not able to sleep well, have muscle cramps and suffer from heat exhaustion when being active, I didn't sweat even though my body temperature was high. My friend recommended acupuncture with Rik Ehmann; he had helped her with her problems.
Even though I was skeptical, and with a healthy fear of needles, I was desperate and thought why not, nothing else had worked. I called and made an appointment. After my first appointment which included an in-depth discussion of my ailment, health history and with noninvasive, painless testing I had my first treatment. After a couple treatments, I found I was sleeping sounder and all night long. I started looking forward to my treatments. I had discovered that this ancient medical treatment, that seems odd compared to American medicine which includes pills and surgery, had finally given me my life back, I am no longer exhausted, no muscle cramps, I do not suffer from the heat and my metabolism is back on track.
I encourage everyone to think about acupuncture as part of their own wellness plan.
"As a young adult, I ran a lot several miles a day. I loved it. But about 5 years ago, I was under a tremendous amount of stress which probably resulted one of my knees going prematurely bad. I had x-rays taken and three doctors looked at it, but they couldn't figure it out. Honestly, I didn't have the time for this and didn't want to be poked and prodded, so I just dealt with it.
Only about 11 short weeks ago, I had my first acupuncture treatment ever! I was really nervous about someone sticking me with needles, but I was really in a lot of pain. I had at one point been under a tremendous amount of stress which seemed to make it worse also. I met Rik at a church function where he was giving away free treatments on-site. I thought, "What the hey, you never know!" I didn't expect a lot, so I sat down and let him put about 4 needles in my knee. Imagine my surprise when I got up and was able to walk better than I had in the past 5 years!! I am continuing treatments with him, as these treatments build on each other. First I went 3 times a week, then twice a week. Now I'm down to once a week and looking forward to making it once a month. I still can't believe that I'm doing so much better!! I truly thought I would just have to live with the pain for the rest of my life. NOW, I recommend Rik to all of my friends and family for any ache or pain. Thank you, Rik!!" mc......
