I started acupuncture therapy with Joshua Solomon to alleviate chronic knee stiffness & pain from osteoarthritis as I anticipate knee replacement in the near future. The arthritis gives me issues in other parts of my body as well. I am not able to take anti-inflammatory meds, & I have tried a host of other “natural” options to no avail. I noticed initial relief after the very first acupuncture session, and after a few more sessions, I’m now able to go forward down stairs without pain. I’m also able to get out of the car with less stiffness/soreness, and there is less stiffness throughout my body when I first get up in the mornings, when it was most noticeable. In fact, the diminished stiffness & soreness carries through the rest of the next few days until my next acupuncture session. It’s what I hoped I’d be able experience when other things were not working. I think it’s helping in a variety of other ways, too. I’m sleeping better. I am relaxed. I feel good overall. Josh is caring, gentle, adept, and professional. I am VERY pleased!!
