I have had chronic left shoulder pain for thirty years. I was happy when the VA chose Acupuncture to treat me. 9/10 pain level reduced to 4/10 in one treatment. Within four treatments, the pain level was reduced to 1/10. If only they would do my other aches and pains….
I have had lower back pain for seven weeks and I could not sit. I just woke up like this. After seven hours in the waiting room, the doctor said it was a pinched nerve. Steroid shots calmed it down a bit, but it did not last. I need some relief, so I decided on trying Acupuncture. I’m so glad I did. After two times a week for three weeks, I was able to sit comfortable. I am looking forward to our future visits.
I am six years old. I don’t try to be bad, but my family thinks I can be. Acupuncture and Nutrition Response
Testing® has helped me and my family a lot. I was afraid of the needles at first, but they really did not hurt. I like Angie. She is nice. So is Mickey. They gave me a birthday present.
I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, IBS, CFS and Arthritis. I am only 50 years old. Doctors wanted to put me on all these different drugs. When I looked them up, this really made me scared. The side effects, were worse than what I’m complaining about. I’m so glad that I decided to see Angie. I feel so much better. I did a four week program twice a week with Acupuncture and cupping. I could feel an improvement every time. The more I talked with her, I knew I wanted to continue and have her test me with Nutrition Response Testing®. I found out that I was exposed to Mercury and that I had a virus. She put me on whole foods with some herbs to help me heal. I got to say, this is kind of cool. She places these files on my body, and checks my reflex on my arm. All I can say is that I can feel when my body wants what she places on my body.
Thank you for all that you do:
I have depression, anxiety, severe stomach pain and fatigue. I just don’t feel like myself and I know that my family suffers because of this. I feel so much better after my Acupuncture treatments. I can’t begin to explain the calmness that I feel. I was a little afraid of needles, but Angie explained everything and answered all my questions. I was amazed that the needles did not hurt. I am so glad that I went to see Angie and her staff. They are amazing and I feel relaxed, calm and I have had no stomach pain for three weeks.
I was on vacation in Gatlinburg and I got a migraine that would not stop for three days. I couldn’t have fun with my kids like I wanted to. I have done Acupuncture and Cupping for this in the past and I new what I needed to do. Angie’s Acupuncture had the best reviews and was the closest to me. My pain level was a 9/10, very light headiness, nausea and was having a little trouble communicating due to the pain. After the treatment, my pain level was a 1/10. I could talk like I normally do and hold my head up high. Thank you Angie and Staff for seeing me so soon, so I can enjoy my vacation with my family.
I am a Veteran. I have chronic lower back pain and have a rod in my back. When I go and see Angie, I am humped over, when I leave, I can stand 40% better. Pain level when I come in is 7/10 and when I leave is 3/10. This usually lasts 3-4 days. Angie cannot cure me, but I do feel good and relaxed after treatments.
Thank you for being you!
I used to be a thin person. Over the last three years, no matter what I did, I kept on gaining weight. 60 pounds in three years, I knew something was wrong. I always was interest in alternative medicine, so I decided to go see Angie. I’m so glad I did. She put me on a program that was right for me. Along with Acupuncture, I started the nutrition program. I will admit, I was a little afraid of needles, but they didn’t hurt. I felt really heavy during the treatment and afterwards; like I had a drink. Maybe, I’m a cheap drunk. Lol. I am amazed by the nutrition program. I found out that I have a sensitivity to fragrances and wheat. We gradually improved my eating habits and products that I was using, and I’m feeling much better. You would think that these health products cost more, but in the long run…so much cheaper!
Thank you Angie and Staff for all that You do!
Thank you Angie. God bless my fallen friends that served in the armed forces, law enforcement, intelligence, firefighters, and all public service fields that gave their lives for our continued freedom in this country.
I want to thank you for fixing us broke down vets!
I’m in high school and I’m having a problem with stress. Its a new school and new friends. The needles did not hurt and I really liked talking with Angie.
I have arthritis so bad that my hands swell up and I can’t make a fist. I did some Acupuncture treatments that I could definitely see a deference along with her Standard Process (Nutrition). I feel and see the difference.
Thank You Angie
I don’t feel like my self. I don’t have any energy, until now. I was afraid when I heard the word needle. I don’t know what I was afraid of. I feel asleep.
I have had chronic Migraines for years. I went through many test that cost a fortune and a lot of medication that did not help and cost a lot until I meet Angie. I have not had a headache for eight weeks after six weeks of treatment and my energy is great. I’m looking forward to my next treatment.
Thank you for giving me my life back,
I served my country and I suffer from chronic neck pain. I did not like the druggy feeling from pain medication, so I refused pain medication and proceeded with Acupuncture.
I have done a some treatments with her and I would recommend it. Sometimes I feel a pinch when the needles go in, but most of the time a feel my body release and I relax. Afterwards, my pain level is reduced to a manageable 2/10 level for a few days. Because I have such a chronic situation, I’m thankful to get to a manageable pain for a few days.
I feel wonderful and Angie is AWSOME!
I’ve been smoking two packs of cigarettes for 30 years. I know it is in the best interest of my health to quite. I don’t want to get hooked on another addictive way to quite smoking, so I chose Acupuncture. Within one week, I went down to one pack a week. The next week, I went down to 10 cigarettes a week. The following week I only smoked 5 cigarettes. I know this is working for me. I’m ready to get cigarette free! The cigarettes tasted nasty to me and the treatment made me calm. I am ready for no cigarette 2016.
I am 150lbs overweight and no matter how much I work out, I cant loose weight. The weight is mainly in waist and thighs. I’m craving chocolates and sweats, low energy, headaches, body aches, and insomnia. Within three Acupuncture treatments I lost 10 lbs. Then see introduced me to Nutrition Response Testing. I have lost another 15 Pounds. I feel awesome and have so much more energy. I can feel that my body’s getting what it needs.
I have been having Hot Flashes for one year. My doctor says that its normal. I don’t think so. It’s hard to work with the public with sweating all the time. Within a few treatments, Angie had the hot flashes to minimum.
Angie, u are Awesome!
I have had allergies all my life. I did every Western test out there to find out what’s wrong. I eliminated foods, but it is hard until I meet Angie. Angie makes things so easy. Nutrition Response Testing® is my friend. I feel so much better!
I have been in chronic Pain for 4 years. I have tried everything (Chiropractic, Massage, Physical Therapy), nothing helped until I tried Acupuncture. This pain affected my lack of sleep, depression, lack of appetite…my life. Now my pain level is 2/10 only after two treatments.
Thank you for giving my life back Angie. You are Awesome!
I am definitely overworked and over stressed. I had no energy and I was gaining 10lb a year no matter what I ate. Angie within a few Acupuncture treatments calmed my cravings and I felt good. She says I’m a good Nutrition Response Testing® Patient. I can’t waite to get the results!
I lived with a pain level 8/10-10/10. This pain level would not lower, until I meet Angie. The pain level is decreasing with every treatment. I am able to play with my grandkids.
I have had acid reflex for three weeks. It was worse when I ate spicy food, most of the time this didn’t matter. A friend of mine told me about acupuncture treatments for Acid Reflex. I knew I was not a fan of needles, but I’m open. I was surprised that the needles did not hurt. Maybe a prick, but much better than the reflex. It subsided in two treatments and as of 5 treatments, it has gone away. I am so happy that I don’t have to eat those over the counter drugs any more.
Angie has put me on an maintenance program for my health! I’m going to start next week with the Nutrition Response Testing®.
I am so excited!
My pain level when I started Acupuncture Treatments was a 9/10. I was a little afraid of the needles, but I was surprised that they did not hurt. This pain woke me up at might and the only way I could relieve it was to put my arm above my head which would only relieve pain level. I am very happy with the results. The pain is reducing with every treatment and I’m able to ride my bike.
I I have tried everything including pills and the pump was very disappointing. I am 60 and I have Erectile Dysfunction. I married a gorgeous woman a few years younger than me and I was not going to give up on our intimacy. A very close friend of mine introduced me to Acupuncture, and I am so thankful. I never thought I could talk freely about something so personal, but here I am. Angie was so easy to talk to and it was also a relief to learn that the NEEDLES don’t go where you might think! Angie has proven to me to be completely professional, trusting, kind and witty. In just a few visits, I was getting back my manhood!
I just went through a divorce and I thought everything was working right until I meet this beautiful incredible woman. A friend of mine told me about using Acupuncture for this problem. I laughed a little and then thought, ‘I’ll give this a try’. Angie is very professional and easy to talk to. After a couple of treatments, I was feeling more relaxed and confident about myself. I was making love to my beautiful girlfriend like I wanted to. Meeting Angie was the best thing I ever done.
Thank You Angie!
I have been a waitress for five years and finally it started to take a toll on my body. I started having trouble with my sciatic nerve in the Spring of 2010. In the beginning it was a dull pain in my lower back. As time passed I got to the point where I couldn’t move very quickly or stand up straight, due to the pain in my back. Over the next few months the pain migrated down my left leg and would make it difficult to carry on with regular daily movements such as walking, sitting up straight or being able to simply stand for more than a few minutes. By December of 2010 the pain was extreme. I was having to take pain medication to simply function in life. I couldn’t find any way to alleviate the pain without some sort of medication, when I had been able to sometimes lessen the pain by sitting certain ways or staying off my feet. One day at the end of December I reached the breaking point. I got out of bed and fell down because I physically could not stand on my left leg. I normally have a high tolerance for pain, but this had broken me. I tried all of the remedies people had told me should help with the pain (visiting a massage therapist, chiropractic visits, cortisone shots, steroid and inflammatory medication from my doctor) and nothing was phasing the pain. At best I would feel relief for half a day and then it would be back to pain that would leave me in tears from simply trying to do regular daily activities like walking through my house to get a drink or even go to the bathroom!
I read on line that acupuncture was a treatment for sciatica and decided it was what I had to do. Angie was able to get me in quickly and my life changed with the first appointment. At the first visit my pain was so extreme that I was literally in tears by the time I arrived at her office from having to sit up in the car on the way to the appointment. I was nervous about the needles, but very surprised that there was no pain from them. Angie showed me the needles and talked me through what all she was going to do, which helped ease the nerves. The needles are about as thick as a single piece of hair, so I didn’t even feel many of them when she was putting them in.
After my first visit I did not feel the constant horrible pain that had left me in tears for days. By the third visit I was actually walking around again. Each following visit I felt an extreme difference. My pain level would be immediately lowered after each session and then the next morning I would feel exponentially better than I had the day before!The difference I felt wasn’t only in my leg. I felt an overall difference in my mood and life in general, both for the better. Now I’ve seen Angie for two months and can barely remember how horrible the pain was only two months ago. I’m back to carrying on with life as I had before sciatica had taken over. I no longer feel pain from any activities I try.
I cannot express the gratitude for bringing my quality of life back!
I began seeing Angie for acupuncture due to having wrap around hip pain. Well let me tell you I got a lot more relief than I thought possible! Angie takes her time to go over your whole body and what your experiencing. She took so much of my stress load off my body it was amazing! I felt like I could deal with life so much better. She was successful at relieving my hip pain through a few treatments. I have a dropped bone in my foot that causes radiating pain. One treatment she cured that as well. I have to say I was a little nervous venturing into this, but I’m so glad I did. She has really made a difference in how I feel. And to anyone who has hesitation, especially with needles, it doesn’t hurt! I’m a true believer!
In March 2010, I developed a condition known as sciatica. This involves the main nerve going from the back to the legs. I was able to gain relief by sitting but soon the condition escalated to the point where I was unable to get any relief day or night. I contacted my family doctor who prescribed oral steroids to alleviate the swelling along with physical therapy. After several weeks, my condition had not improved and had actually worsened. After my move to Knoxville in April, my wife persuaded me to try deep tissue massage. As a Registered Nurse, she is an advocate for holistic and alternative treatments as seen in her practice with cancer patients. I did several treatments with a licensed massage therapist which did give me relief from the contact pain ; however, this was only temporary, lasting 2-3 days.
At this point, my quality of life was starting to deteriorate. I had trouble sleeping, walking, and could not participate in the activities that I had always been able to do (golf, fishing, hiking). I was becoming depressed and thinking my only option was an epidural or some other invasive procedure. My wife suggested acupuncture as a possibility and I have to admit I was skeptical since nothing else to date had worked. After she encouraged me to try I contacted Angie Buckridge and made the appointment. Well the rest is history! After just two treatments with Angie, I was experiencing 3-4 days of complete pain relief and I was able to sleep again! I have continued to be treated by Angie on a weekly basis since June and now in September, I am completely pain free and able to do all of my activities again.
I am now a believer in acupuncture and it has proved to be the best and most effective treatment for my condition. I am now on the maintenance plan, with a monthly visit to Angie, and enjoying all the things I did before without pain and discomfort. I highly recommend Angie’s Acupuncture and I can’t express in words the difference it has made in my life. Thank you Angie!!
Thank you so much for the treatment last night (Monday, April 12, 2010). I noticed the immediate benefit of just feeling better in general (after my miscarriage over the weekend I was feeling quite depressed).After I got home I was able to handle the stress of my in-laws with much more calm and peace. I also got the best night sleep that I have had in weeks and weeks … that was the best benefit! I am looking forward to our next appointment and I am very excited about the work we will do to help me to conceive again and to keep that pregnancy to full term. Thank you again for everything!
Angie is a Great Acupuncturist! Angie has the ability to put me at ease during a treatment with her compassion and skill. I would not hesitate to return to Angie for my health care needs.
I want to tell you about the day I had on April 26, 2010. On this day I had come down with the flu. I was achy all over, my head hurt, I was extremely congested and I had a Fever of 101.5 that I could not get to come down. After the treatment my temp went from 101.5 to 99.7. My headache was gone and congestion lightened up. The aches and pains were much less and have not returned as of 4 1/2 hours later. My fever is still down and I was able to rest comfortably for the next 6 hours. This was such a relief and I feel well enough to eat this evening.
Thank you so much,
My name is Mary and I fell down on the sidewalk in New Orleans while I was visiting. I have a good since of what is going on with my body and I knew my knee was in trouble. I put ice on it while I was there in New Orleans but continued to walk and do what I needed to enjoy my time in New Orleans, for 5 more days. Then there was a two day drive home. (Well we took two days.) Now when I returned home my leg was swollen from about two inches above my knee to my toes and they too were swollen. Black and Blue from my angle up my calve and my knee of course. Well Angela Buckridge Acupuncturist, from Angie’s Acupuncture started treating my leg. After just a day the swelling was down enough for me to get around on crutches and went to a western Doc to get my ex-rays done to make sure nothing was broken and it was not broken. The Doc said these kinds of injury’s can take up to three months or more to heal. But with Angie’s treatment I was able to walk in just a week, after she started treating me, and I was sure when I got home that first night I would not be able to use my leg for a very long time, I was distressed to say the least. Well it has been two weeks now and I walk around like I have never been hurt at all. Angie and her ability to help with all kinds of health problems is a gift that needs to be used the people of Knoxville. She also helped with my Mother with some problems she was suffering with, and had been for several months, and has not been bothered by this since Angie treated her. My mother is 91 and very active.
I would suggest to anyone to go to Angie for Acupuncture and healing.
The first time I had acupuncture was for tennis elbow. I had already had two cortisone shots and didn’t want another. I came across an article on acupuncture and thought, “Why not?” I was ready to try just about anything at that time. Unbelievably, my condition cleared up in just a few sessions. And this was after having it for months. Same with a ruptured achilles tendon.
Just recently I called Angie because I had damaged the knuckle of my middle finger ( pretty sure I cracked it) My fingers were swollen and I was in pain, couldn’t use my hand for anything. I could have went to the “regular” doctor, but I already knew what they would say…it would have went something like this….” Yes, we need x-rays (cha-ching) and we’ll charge you $100 for the office visit (cha-ching) and here are some pain pills ( which I don’t like). They may have been able to tell if it was broken, but I have been often enough with the kids to know it would have been…”we can’t really tell, so just ice it and splint it. Come back if it doesn’t get better”. All to the tune of a couple hundred dollars and no relief, no help.
I wanted to thank you for the care I have received at your Acupuncture Clinic. I was in a lot of pain from a car accident and felt my life was over. I felt I would never be able to do the things I use to normally do and became very depressed and did not want to live in pain any more or live on pain medication day after day.
My doctor suggested acupuncture and as a last resort , I found Angela Buckridge’s Clinic and with out much hope made an appointment. Angie explained that it would take time but, she could help me. After the second visit , my pain had dropped 75% and I felt I had hope that my life and ability to garden, house clean and go back to work would be given back to me. Angie relieved all the agonizing nerve pain that ran down from my hip to my knee. I still have some pain at times with the two bulging disks in my lower back, but with Angie’s care I rarely have to take pain medication and can do all the things I had before.
I feel that with out Angie’ care I would not be the happier, healthier person I am today.
Thank You for giving me My Life back,
I was in a wheel chair for 3 months. I have been to 3 doctors and had all the tests done for severe pain in my right leg. I had to keep my leg elevated and was told there was no cure for the nerve damage. Thank god I found Angie and after 3 treatments I was walking without pain and off all medications. She was a godsend and I recommend her very highly. Her education and compassion for people in pain is truly amazing.
God has blessed her with the gift of healing and the cost is very reasonable.
