New To Acupuncture, Found Relief - Oct 1, 2016:
After inflammation that caused severe sciatic pain, I sought Jason Moore for help with lingering pain in the ball of my left foot while consulting my local G.P. Jason's two treatments, including herbs, made a difference, first for about twenty-four hours, now several days following the second visit, I'm out of bed after three weeks, with the ability to walk without the pain I had. My G.P. is investigating, but I credit Jason for helping me get where I am now, on the road to recovery.
Competent and accomplished:
Jason Moore is accomplished and competent in application of his acupuncture expertise. Accordingly, I look forward to my weekly sessions with enthusiasm. I always feel that being in his care is time well spent. He offers a delightful cerebral and sensitive bedside manner which enhances patience confidence and healing. I would seek his service !
My first experience with acupuncture. Facility was clean, peaceful and welcoming. Receptionist (sorry didn't catch your name!) was thorough, professional and very sweet. Jason makes you feel like you are his only appointment. He is kind, very thoughtful, HONEST, and gentle. I very much appreciate him wanting to help all of my issues, not limited to my current complaint. He is about the entire body being cohesive and balanced. I will be returning frequently! Definitely highly recommended.
Amazing alternative to surgery and pain meds!:
Dealing with excruciating pain in both hands, I decided to try acupuncture first before going the route of an orthopedic specialist, potential surgery and pain meds and have found great relief. It has been a treatment process (going twice weekly) but the pain is almost gone and I can write my name again with ease. I'm thankful I put my faith in acupuncture first. Jason Moore is knowledgeable and provides an excellent environment and appropriate treatments for healing what ails you.
