New York, NY
i am a working actress and musician and i spend a lot of time on the road. this means i do a lot of carrying heavy bags, equipment and assorted instruments. I came to metropolitan acupuncture on the recommendation of my massage therapist, to find relief for a back and hip problem that had been bothering me for more than a year. i was told by my therapist that the doctor there is truly interested in his patients and does a thorough job of assessment of your malady each time at every visit, really spending time with you. well, this couldn't be more true. i have seen a number of acupuncturists in new york city, been assessed, then hurried in and out with little to no interaction. from the first visit, i felt very comfortable and i got the impression that michael really cared about getting me well!... he follows through and made sure i stayed with the treatment. and, i am happy to report, that after my third session, i had my first pain free day in more than a year. apparently the "traffic jam" in my back was clearing up and the stiffness in my hip and leg was feeling a lot better. now, weeks after my treatment was completed, i am still feeling great and even started ballroom dancing classes! thank you, metropolitan acupuncture!
