I never believed in acupuncture or eastern medicine, so when I threw out my back (again) I thought oh well, I'll just take some pain killers, lie on the floor with an ice pack on my low back and I'll be fine the next day. This time, I couldn't hardly get off the floor. My girlfriend convinced me to try acupuncture after my doc basically told me to accept the pain because I was getting older and to take pain meds as needed. I hobbled into Sherene's little office and walked out with much less sharp pain in my back. A few treatments later, the soreness was relieved and I could sleep at night. Another side benefit of the treatments was the swelling in my knuckles is virtually gone ( I have chronic swelling in my fingers from Ju-Jitsu training). Highly suggest Sherene, she is kind and caring, & will give you the straight truth.
I am an active person, so when I started to have knee pain, I tried everything- physical therapy, chiropractor, massage. None of it really helped in the long term. In addition to knee pain, I started to have ""lady"" problems (irregular periods, etc.). That combined with stress from a very busy work schedule left me feeling drained and without hope. I don't like taking medication (I seem to experience all the bad side effects), so I sought out acupuncture. Boy, did I find a gold mine in Sherene Flores! She took the time to listen to me, and developed an individual plan that consisted of treatment with needles and herbs (in pill form) that helped decrease my pain and regulate my periods. Best of all, she is very honest- she didn't have me come by 3x/week or something crazy like that, she dosed my treatments according to what I needed- no more, no less. She is very personable, so coming to see her was a great way to end my day. I am back to working out with hardly any pain, my periods are regular and I have much more energy! I definitely recommend Sherene for whatever ails you.
