I have been seeing Dr. Beardsly for about a year. He has helped me more than most of my medical doctors. Since seeing him, my restless leg syndrome has almost disappeared, my leg swelling is almost non-existent and I have lost 40 lbs. I was finally able to have both knees replaced (which I had been trying to get done for 11 years). I don't believe I could have done this without acupuncture. I am so happy that a friend recommended this facility to me and I listened. I would highly recommend Dr. Beardsly.
Dr Chip is truly Amazing! Hes passionate about helping, knowledgeable beyond belief and genuinly cares about his patients!!
I first came to him for Migraines. I suffered from them for 8yrs every single day! Ugg!! A few treatments in and i havent had any in nearly 4years!! Hes become my primary as he's fixed a wide variety of issues on me! From Migraines, IBS, anxiety/depression, back pain and list goes on!!
This is the only Dr. Ive been to that you actually feel better when you leave the office!?!?! Imagine that!! Pain gone or darn nearly!!! Wow!!
Best Dr. You will see!! Thanks for everything you do Dr. Chip!!
I can not say enough about this place and Dr. Chip. First, he and his staff are some of the best people I have had the pleasure of meeting. I work in the medical field and frequently work beside doctors, nurses, and administrators. The staff here are hands down the most friendly and helpful I have ever seen. I started as a patient at Ancient Art of healing in 2016. At the time I suffered from chronic back pain as a result of injuries and surgeries I had while serving in the military. I took several narcotics to get through the pain every day. I walked slumped over and had to use a cane to walk around.
After 2 visits to Dr. Chip I was standing up straight and almost pain free. Now I live with only minimal pain and I am productive. I go every other week and could not be more happy with the results. I recommend Ancient Art of Healing to anyone and everyone.
I came to Ancient Art of Healing because I had been diagnosed with ovarian cysts. One was complicated and I wanted to avoid surgery, if possible. I had two months before a follow up ultrasound to see if the cysts had changed. I visited the practice for those eight weeks and I'm happy to say that both of the cysts had shrunk and I did not have to have surgery. I can't recommend them more! I am so grateful to Chip for helping me.
I was in a car accident on 3/28/2015. I went through all of the hoops of standardized medicine (multiple appointments, prescriptions, podiatrist, months of physical therapy, ice/heat packs), none of it worked. I was in such pain I couldn’t turn my head, walk correctly, go up/down stairs, mow yard, push my grandchildren on a swing, or hold my youngest grandchild without being in pain. A colleague recommend her acupuncturist Dr. Beardsley. I started for my first round of treatment in 12/15. I was 65 years old. It was unbelievable, for the 1st time in 9 months I could turn my head, take less medicine, & move more freely. I paid for these appointments as health/auto insurance won't. I didn’t want to spend money out of my own pocket for something I wasn’t sure I believed in, but it was more than worth the expense. It angers me that medical/auto insurance will pay for appointments that don't work, but they refuse to pay for what that gave me back a much better percentage of my life. O.H.
I have had severe scoliosis spinal curvature since birth and Dr. Chip is the first doctor who could remove my pain. It took several treatments but it is definitely worth it. I actually think my next xray will show improvement in spinal curvature but even it does not I am not in pain.
Huge Thank you to Dr. Chip and Staff. Always there when I need them. Friendly and they do care about you and helping you get better. I refer them to everyone I know. My allergies and migraines are really bad, he treats them and before I walk out of office the symptoms stop. Back pain, feet, stomach issues, he is a blessing indeed. Thank you again!!!
After many attempts to get relief for low back pain through my primary doctor and specialists the pain kept coming back. Also I tried physical therapy and that worked for a while but I still had pain.
Therefore, I decided to try Acupuncture. After meeting with Dr. Chip Beardsley, I experienced immediate relief and continue seeing him for follow up treatments.
Dr. Chip is the greatest!
I had sciatica and could hardly walk it literally made me feel like I was going to pass out or throw up. I started going to Dr. Beardsley and got relief. If someone had told me six months ago that I would go for acupuncture I would have told them they were crazy but take it from me I GOT RELIEF!!!!! So if you are considering it but can't make up your mind GO!!
I had horrible migraines for 10 years of my life. I went to a dozen different doctors, specialist, and neurologist. I had many MRIs, cat scans, and all sorts of tests done, they prescribed countless different medications and my migraines were getting worse. When I went to see Dr. Joseph Beardsley (Dr. Chip) I was having migraines 3 times a month. They were getting completely out of hand and affecting my daily life. The first time he treated me; my migraine went away instantly, which was an amazing relief. I had about 5 or 6 more treatments with him, and since then I have not had another migraine. That has been about 3 years ago, and it still blows my mind. I have seen Dr. Chip help so many people including my family with all different kind of health issues. I have learned so much about my health and natural medicine. God knew what he was doing when he created us; my body can heal itself without being on medications for the rest of my life. Meeting Dr. Chip was a huge blessing that I’m glad i didn’t miss out on.
Last April, my teenage daughter was dealing with panic attacks, breathing difficulties, and extreme anxiety. In addition, her skin was very pale and dry. Her blood work was absolutely normal and a pulminologist was consulted, who did not diagnose asthma, but put her on an inhaler. We were referred to a psychologist. We went to Dr. Beardsley (Dr. Chip) instead. She was better in less than one week, and feeling back to normal in less than 2 months! He treated her like God created her, as a whole person. She is happy, successful in school, and on no medications. We are so thankful!
Like many people from the West, I debunked Acupuncture as SCI-FI. Stupid me! After several surgeries and disappointments I was referred to Dr. Beardsley. The rest is history and I wish I had been more adventurous with my medical options in the past. Doctor Beardsley likes to be called Chip. He has that Dr. Marcus Welby, MD "attitude" that folks feel good about. When you leave, you usually have instant relief, sound follow through instructions and if you want, way of life adjustments for free. Chip is the guy next door all of us wished we had. He is there for you first and the world and its requirements come second. He is currently working very hard with insurance companies to help patients utilize his fantastic services. If, like me, you have been standing on the side lines laughing (but physically hurting) RUN, RIGHT NOW and have Chip evaluate your issues. He will give you a true opinion if he feels you can be helped with his techniques. I am a retired Navy SEAL with more injuries than usual. If Chip could help me, then He can surely help you. He is not a Quack, but loves to joke about opinions people offer up about this ancient science that God provides us and already hardwired into each of us. John Floyd
Dr. Joseph Beardsley ( Dr. Chip) has not only helped numerous people in my family ( w digestive issues, Lymph issues, Back pain, Knee pain, Anxiety.......and much more. Dr. Chip has help me personally with Sciatica. I am a runner and this nagging pain had me concerned that I wasn't going to be able to continue my exercise regimen. With a few treatments it is not a problem for me anymore. Amazing Alternative! It really Works! It is more logical that my body can heal itself, rather than drugs and surgery. Thank You Dr. Chip!!!!!!
Bruce M. I was treated by Dr. Beardsley after a devastating rib injury. I could not lift my arm. It took Dr. Beardsley about 26 seconds to provide me relief. But it gets better. I was treated at the hospital with pain prescriptions for 2 months with excruciating pain that Dr. Beardsley resolve with ease. At the same time, I had other complications such as Sleep Apnea, HBP,IBS, Chest pains, and on the verge of a heart attack or stroke for sure. Dr. Beardsley acupuncture treatments resolve a number of issues, my blood pressure is perfect, my chest pains are gone, and I have sleep all night for the first time in 3 years. Dr. After 25 years in the healthcare industry, I am here to say Dr. Beardsley is God sent. Whatever your condition, come and see Dr. Beardsley.
