Acupuncture Testimonials from Patients in Caldwell, Madison & Morristown NJ Morgan Reade knows that skepticism about acupuncture is natural in people who have tried lots of different, unsuccessful Western modalities.
You may wonder—does acupuncture work? Acupuncture FAQ Patients of Advanced Acupuncture NJ think so!
I'm 63 and, although I have a strong back and rarely experienced any problems, one developed across my lower back. It made bending forward painful and difficult. In the past, such painful incidents, although few in number, went away within a day or two. After two weeks, I realized this pain wasn't going away anytime soon. So I went to Morgan Reade for accupuncture. After three treatments and doing his suggested stretches, my discomfort is almost gone. I expect that after a few more, it will be completely gone.
Acupuncture Makes a Difference in Severe Post-Surgery Scarring “I had a spinal fusion in my lower back at L5-S1 that left a three-inch, raised, bright purple scar right on the bottom of my backbone. The thing was freaking horrible—it looked like a crazy snake was trying to push out from under my skin and touching it was super creepy.
“Morgan loaded the scar up with needles once a week for about eight weeks. He would stick a bunch more all down my hip and my leg where the sciatic nerve that was so irritated before surgery runs.
“Usually, I would break out in a cold sweat and my whole body would start buzzing, and then I would get really, really calm. Sometimes, when we were done, I would be a little bit light-headed, but in a cool, fun way.
“My scar flattened out really quickly and lost the horror-movie color. I always really liked how I had a pretty, rosy glow in my cheeks after I left, too.
“Morgan is the greatest!”—Rachel Moran Acupuncture Makes a Difference for Chronic ‘Freak’ Knee Pain “Up until about a year ago, I would have never considered the possibility of a needle being stuck into my body to relieve any type of pain. Today I am here to tell you that without acupuncture and meeting Morgan, I would probably still be in pain and limping like a pirate.
“I had a freak accident where my left knee was swollen and in excruciating pain. After three months of going to my general-practice physician and then being referred to an orthopedic surgeon, the pain was increasing with no known cause. They were treating me like my pain was imaginary. Trust me, the pain was real.
“One day while limping around at work a colleague asked if I had considered acupuncture. I laughed and said no way. Later in the day, still limping around at work, another colleague said, ‘You should go and see an acupuncturist and see if they can help you.’
“Now, two separate conversations in one day about acupuncture did raise my curiosity, although I still was not in the mindset to consider the whole needle thing. I can honestly say I am a true coward when it comes to needles. The truth is they are not what we consider traditional needles. They are small hair-like implements that you can barely feel when inserted into your skin.
“On my first visit, Morgan did a consultation to try to figure out what was causing the problem and believed that it was just one of those freak accidents where I hit a nerve in a vulnerable point in my knee that set off the nightmare of pain I suffered.
“After 3 months of treatments, I was walking and experiencing little to no pain. No drugs required. Morgan was patient and, unlike in traditional medicine, he was not willing to give up on my problem.
“Here I am today—a true believer in acupuncture. If any of you experience pain and all traditional medical practitioners want to do is give you medication to trick you into thinking you’re not in pain – consider acupuncture. Trust me, it works.”—Martin S.
I first turned to a Reproductive Endocrinologist after having struggled with irregular, an ovualtory cycles. My husband & I endured weeks of testing simply to be diagnosed with unexplained infertility. The RE suggested that we proceed with intrauterine insemination (IUI) as it was not likely that I would be able to conceive otherwise. Fortunately, this was not necessary. With Morgan’s help, I was able to ovulate and get pregnant on my own - within just one month of starting acupuncture. It was the best decision of my life! Lisa J. Caldwell, NJ
I went to Morgan with plenty of questions, some concerns, and a healthy dose of doubt. I had imagined only that he would be able to help me with the migraines I was unable to treat with western medicine while trying to conceive. Instead, Morgan patiently explained that the migraines and many of my other complaints including poor circulation & digestion were directly related to my infertility. So instead of pumping me full of drugs to get my cycle started again, or to get my ovaries to do their job, Morgan approached the problem with my total body health in mind. With acupuncture & lifestyle changes, Morgan has helped us grow our family & for that there can never be enough thanks. --Rebecca T. Glen Ridge, NJ
I had been taking fertility drugs in combination with fertility treatments for six months to get pregnant with no luck. I started seeing Morgan Reade immediately before my IVF Transfer. I had heard there is a higher success rate in the transfers when combined with acupuncture. Two weeks later I got the good news that I was pregnant and continued treatments for the entire first trimester. The treatments were very relaxing and I am so happy I did it. I am due any day now with a baby boy - which Morgan Reade predicted!!
Morgan has helped me to experience something I was beginning to think was impossible. I had been trying to conceive a baby for nearly 5 years. I had done everything I thought was possible undergoing impersonal western medicine treatments such as Clomid and IUI several times with only disappointment. I was heartbroken and felt like there had to be a solution to this "infertility" issue I was experiencing besides invasive and costly procedures like Invitro. I did some research and read about the benefits of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, that was when I found NJ Advanced Acupuncture! From the very first time I walked into the office I felt understood and comfortable. Morgan was caring and warm during a sensitive time in my life. I saw changes in me and my body that I'd not ever known were possible. I followed his protocol precisely and conceived after only 2.5 months, my husband and I were ecstatic!! Under his care I was thrilled to go on to have a healthy pregnancy and a quick natural labor and delivery. I am so immensely thankful to Morgan for helping us to start our family. I continue to see him for my and my baby's general health and recommend him highly!
