I had my first treatment with Eric last week. I was sore from the treatment-but after being up for an hour or so the next morning I realized I didn’t have any pain! It was the best my back has felt in 35 years.
Three breast surgeries over a period of years had left me with a great deal of scar tissue and pain. Mammograms and sonograms were extremely painful. A friend suggested acupuncture and recommended Eric Schanke, a soft-spoken and gentle acupuncturist with an impressive resume. Nine sessions later, I have no scar tissue remaining and almost no pain!
About 20 years ago, I was practicing gymnastics and landed on my head. Ever since then I was plagued with neck pain and headaches. I went to many doctors. They told me I had “tension” headaches and wanted me to take painkillers. I also was treated with chiropractic but none of this helped. It’s been a month since my 3rd treatment with Eric and I’m painfree! About a week ago, I had some pain in the old spot, but it quickly went away. I’m thrilled!
Two weeks ago my 91 year old mother fell. Her pain was so intense that we had to take her to her doctor. He told us she had a pulled muscle and to put hot and cold pads on her back and gave her some pain pills to take. We did this for a week but it did not help, she was still in a lot of pain. I thought that maybe she had broken a bone so I took her to the emergency room. Luckily x-rays showed that there were no broken bones, but the doctors couldn’t do much. They told us she had a “pinched nerve“. After one treatment with Eric, the pain disappeared! We are amazed! I have 5 pinched nerves myself and the doctors say that there’s nothing they can for me and I am going to make an appointment with Eric.
I had terrible pain in my hip. I was taking so many pain killers I couldn’t see straight! I got a lot of chiropractic but it just wasn’t helping. After one treatment with Eric, the pain was gone! Almost instantly! I’m amazed.
I was in a terrible car accident about a year and a half ago. My neck was hurt so bad that my thyroid gland was even torn. After the accident, half of my face was affected; the doctors diagnosed it as thoracic outlet syndrome. It was like a line down the center of my face and the hurt side felt weird, painful, and numb. Even my vision in that eye was affected. After acupuncture with Eric my face feels normal again!
40 minutes with Eric helped my neck pain more than all the therapy I’ve had for the past 5 years.
I haven’t felt this good in a long time and didn’t know if I ever would. Before I saw Eric, I had thought “I’m not old enough to be in this kind of pain!”
Three years ago, I had reached a real turning point. I was having recurring low back pain that wouldn’t go away. My pain was so bad I was going to go on disability or have surgery. I was getting chiropractic treatments and soft tissue work, but it wasn’t helping. I was in despair because I thought I would lose my job. My wife mentioned a friend who was getting treatment from Eric and suggested I contact him. I did. I found after 3 treatments that there was immediate improvement. I had 7 more and I was significantly improved. Because of my chronic back pain I still need a “tune-up” treatment 2 or 3 times a year with encouraging results.
On a scale of 1-10 my pain was an 8 and climbing! It was a deep pain in my buttocks. I had trouble sleeping or getting in and out of a car. This had bothered me for 15 years. I tried everything “conventional” medicine could do. I didn’t want to be on pain killers, I know where that road leads. After 7 treatments with Eric, I’m pain free.
