I have a rare and severe form of arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis. I have suffered with pain and disability since I was 11 years old. My pelvis, ribs, and entire spine are fused from the arthritis. Another name for this is “bamboo spine” because the spaces between my spine are fused as well as most joints in my body.

I started seeing Dr. Diane in January 2021, and I was amazed at how quickly I felt better. WOW! I got immediate relief. The pain was and has been better controlled with weekly treatments. I have not needed my prescribed medication as often, and I am sleeping like I haven’t slept since I was a teenager.

In fact, last month I redid my office. I painted, reorganized, and hung pictures that I would not have even considered before I found East Winds. I felt great and excited for my new life! Overall, acupuncture has improved my health and I am grateful to Diane for all that she has done.
