I started seeking acupuncture treatment with acupuncturist Ken Du over a year ago because I needed help in dealing with anxiety and stress. I am a firm believer in natural medicine and opted to try this prior to going to a traditional Western doctor who would more than likely prescribe medication.
Prior to starting my acupuncture treatment, I was finishing up my final semester of graduate school, all while studying for my Series 7 Brokerage License. To put it lightly, I was a wreck, both mentally and physically. I had severe skin problems, suffered from stress, often felt tired, and had trouble sleeping. It seemed as if being so driven and goal oriented was really taking a toll on me. All in all, I knew I needed help.
I originally started going to see Dr. Choi between two and three times a week, a minimum of 35 to 50 minutes per session, depending on how much time I had. Within a month I noticed drastic changes. For starters, my skin started clearing up, I no longer had trouble sleeping, and was able to concentrate better as I felt less stress.
Over a year later, I still continue my acupuncture treatment between once and twice weekly. I am also able to effectively perform at a very stressful job on a securities trading desk / Front Office of a brokerage house. One of the longer term results of my treatment my ability to remain cool, calm and collective in even the most stressful of situations. I am also able to focus more effectively and am better equipped to deal with stress. I feel more energetic and am able to sleep better. Not to mention, my skin has completely cleared up.
In short, I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who would rather remedy their ailment(s) naturally, as opposed to the Western belief of medicating themselves. Acupuncture is the best way to cure any ailment safe and naturally, as well as from the inside out. I am living proof, as I feel wonderful in comparison to how I felt over a year ago.
