I originally came to see Dr. Chantelle Zhuang in 2009 as a skeptic, with an upper back problem. I had tried physiotherapy, and was on pain killers frequently, all to no avail. Her treatment cleared up that problem in one session, and I was amazed lying there that I could feel the pain ebbing away. I became a believer quickly, so when I was diagnosed with palindromic rheumatism, I again turned to acupuncture as a way to relieve the pain and associated joint swelling. I have not give up the prescribed medication, but her on-going treatments have enable me to work in the yard and on my hobbies, without pain or discomfort. I sleep better, have more energy, and generally feel much better.
