Drug's weren't sufficient to relieve this nurse's chronic hip pain. We were please when the pain disappeared with Balance Method acupuncture.

This lady with arthritis was pleased when i was able to loosen up her stiff neck and shoulders with Balance Method acupuncture. I added a few more hair like needles and her hip pain magically disappeared.

Its results like these that make practicing acupuncture worthwhile. I love being able to help people by relieving their pain.

As soon as I placed a few tiny needles in her wrist, this lady with a sprained ankle was able to stand On Her Toes! I added a few more needles and her headache melted away. . .

patients have no idea what our overhead is. I am sure they would be amazed to find out especially when you add in the student loan debt. they don't even have any clue how much time we spend in acupuncture college. we need to do better about publicizing that thru our swebites and so forth .

"For years now, doctors like myself have known that screening mammography doesn’t save lives, or else saves so few that the harms far outweigh the benefits." a fuller explanation, backed by a JAMA study Nov 2012, that mammography doesn't save lives, rather fuels an industry of expensive chemo, radiation, surgery which may not be medically necessary.

Do you think 1min after needling gives Pain relief? Then why need few more Acu treatment afterward?

Andrew Weil recommends acupuncturists who have gone to acupuncture college over a medical doctor who took a 300h course and to do acupuncture because acupuncturist's are more highly trained.

a google review posted this week for a patient i treated last month:

I came to see Kath at Bartlett Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine with some rather significant health issues as well as suffering severe pain from a bout of the Shingles. Kath Bartlett's ability as an Acupuncturist is truly amazing. The shingles pain was virtually eliminated immediately during the first minutes of the first treatment. Though some of the pain crept back over the course of the day, subsequent visits were able to relieve the pain for good as well as address the underlying nerve inflammation caused by the shingles virus. Further Kath was able to put together a mix of Chinese Herbs, which I took over the course of the next several weeks, which helped tremendously in the strengthening and revitalizing of my immune system. This was my first visit ever to an Acupuncturist. It was only because others had recommended her so highly that I even tried it... I'm certainly glad I did! Kath's professionalism, skill and caring demeanor have played a major role in returning me to pain free good health. Oh, and for you first timers, don't be afraid of those little-ole needles… they're so tiny that you can barely even see them - which means that you can barely even feel them.

I stayed here twice in the sping of 2013: visits were a month apart for a business seminar. i was quite content: nice pool & hot tub. fairly quiet. clean. refridge and microwave in room. friendly, helpful staff. i'm not a fan of buena park, but the stay at this hotel made the visit pleasurable.

I contracted St. Louis Sign Works to make a magnet sign for my car. I am impressed with the friendly and accommodating staff. They helped me with a tag line for my business and designed a lovely sign based on my business card for a continuous look. The ladies were ever cheerful about making the stream of minor changes I requested. Their goal was a finished product with which I would be happy. Mission accomplished. All terms, conditions and expectations were clearly presented and explained. No surprises here. I highly recommend St. Louis Sign Works.

Grace: i can't tell you how much my mother loved her corsage. she phoned me twice & i have received several emails about it. she has it sitting by her reading chair so she can sit and admire it. she loves the colors and the berries and especially the roses. She told me she has received many corsages in her lifetime (75y) but never one as beautiful as this. she says they are usually chrysanthemums or orchids. she has thanked me so many times for the wonderful mother's day, that it was the best, ever, and one she will never forget. i wanted her to feel special and appreciated. mission accomplished. thank you for your part. i have never heard her gush as she has over this corsage. i appreciate you and your lovely work. wishing you peace, prosperity and bountiful success in your new venture.
