"For most of my adult life I have lived with lower back pain that would come and go for no apparent reason. I have seen many specialists throughout the years but I have never found relief for very long. My yoga teacher recommended Jeffrey her acupuncturist and massage therapist and I felt immediate relief after our first session. This non-invasive two tier approach has healed my back pain where years of traditional methods have not. I have since seen Jeffrey for allergy relief and I am very thankful for his expertise, professionalism and gentle manner."

"I've had lots of acupuncture and healing treatments throughout my life. Jeffrey's Classical Acupuncture treatment based on the Five Element Style is by far the best I've had. He has helped me decrease my back pain from an old injury last summer as well as improve/balance my overall energy levels and feeling of well-being. I love the way his treatments are different every time. He does what is called for that day, not just a cookie-cutter treatment that is the same each time. Thank you!."

"My journey into acupuncture started a little over a year ago. I was having pretty bad lower back pain caused I think by too aggressive exercise. After having being treated by my internist with muscle relaxors, anti-inflammatory and pain pills that just masked the problem I decided I would try something a little different since I was not getting any results from what I was trying. Was I scared? Yes, all of us panic at the thought of needles, even tiny ones but I did it! Does it hurt? Sometimes, but it is not anything one can't stand if the results help. And they did! Treatment resolved the very painful back pain. I could walk again without being stooped over! Being in the skill full hands of Dr. Jeffery Elkins I have been helped with the back pain, sinus headaches, foot pain, and shoulder pain from the same excessive exercise program. So I now have an alternative way to help myself heal from the aches and pains when other ways don't help. Can I recommend acupuncture, most definitely, give it a try it really does work!!!"

"I turned to acupuncture as an alternative treatment for carpel tunnel syndrome after months of steroid and splint therapy failed to bring any significant relief from chronic pain and numbness. After several sessions, my pain subsided to the point where I no longer lost sleep and within a month of regular sessions I regained full use and strength of my right hand. I am still not sure how acupuncture works, but I am convinced it can bring significant relief and healing for chronic pain symptoms. Most importantly, I am grateful not to have endured continued steroid treatments or undergone a surgical procedure that cannot be guaranteed effective or risk free."

"Hi, My name is Susan and for most of my life, as a child and as an adult, I've suffered from insomnia. For the last fifteen years I've been treated for fibromyalgia: pain, fatigue, sleeplessness, and depression. Menopause has been a nightmare with hot flashes and of course problems sleeping ongoing for at least twelve years. I've taken various prescriptions including antidepressants, sleeping medications, hormone replacement therapy,and pain pills. All with limited or no success; especially for sleep. I hated the side effects of the medications.I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. dragging through the days and dreading the nights.I always knew acupuncture was a recommended treatment for fibromyalgia but never considered it for myself (maybe because my internist never mentioned it). After hearing some friends tell how acupuncture helped them, I decided to make an appointment. I'm so glad I did. From our first visit Jeffrey put me at ease. His holistic approach gave me hope for improvement without taking pills(which weren't working anyway). Jeffrey is experienced and professional yet warm and personal. His office is comfortable and calming. The best thing is I'm sleeping much better, hot flashes practically gone and I have no pain. He also successfully treated me for back pain, ringing ears and burning tongue. Oh yes, I've discontinued four medications! The future looks bright as I await the birth of my first grandchild. I have more energy and feel better than I have in years. Thanks Jeffrey! Don't wait. Make an appointment and begin your journey to better health today."

"My experience with Dr. Elkins was my first with acupuncture. I was really nervous at first, but he was very calm, knowledgeable, and super kind, and by the time my treatment had started, I was very much at ease. After the fact, I felt less groggy physically and emotionally, and felt like I could breathe more deeply. Highly recommend!"

"I looked into acupuncture to find a way to eliminate Tinnitus (ringing in the ear), which I have had since 1995 following a total hearing loss in one ear. The hearing loss was caused by a head cold. The noise in my ear was loud and very annoying. It sounded like a train and was constant for most of my waking hours 24/7. I was skeptical about trying acupuncture since I know very little about the mechanism of the practice. Much to my surprise and delight, after 7 sessions, the noise has become much less prominent. It is still there but oftentimes I have to think about it to realize it is. When I do become aware of it, I realize that it is a much quieter sound and certainly much less annoying than the previous noise. Overall, I feel very balanced and have had few, if any, physical complaints since I began the treatment. I am still not sure I understand how it works, but I would definitely recommend it to others."
