Keith’s Journey: At the age of 22 I was diagnosed with “psoriatic arthritis,” an auto-immune condition that behaves similarly to Rheumatoid Arthritis but tends to be much more aggressive. By the time I was 24 I had to walk with a cane, could not tie my own shoes or button a shirt and was in constant pain. On top of that I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and IBS, this in addition to the psoriasis and joint pain!! Western treatments didn’t seem to help and I just kept getting worse. I was told I would be in a wheel chair by the time I was 30. I needed to find something else. From my connections within the martial arts community I was urged to try acupuncture. I did, and after WORKING towards my health with a skilled practitioner of Chinese Medicine I got my life back, in fact I became healthier than I ever was!! Why, because I found someone who taught me to fish rather than just stuffing them down my throat!! You health is yours. I can and will give it back to you!!
What Makes Keith different from Other Acupuncturists?
