A 56-year old male business-owner arrived at HolliBalance with a history of drug and alcohol addiction.  He was experiencing tremendous work- and family-related anxiety, inducing temptation to return to his prior substance abuse.  He had seen other acupuncturists without experiencing relief; following first acupuncture treatment at HolliBalance, he felt better stress-relief and could handle business- and family-matters without irritation, and he has been coming regularly for the past 2 months.  During this period of time, he has experienced severe back pain twice, each time the back pain disappeared immediately after treatment.  He also had one onset of migraine headache and vomiting.  The headache was reduced 80% following treatment, and it disappeared completely overnight.

Anxiety/Cold Extremities

A 38 year old attorney suffering from anxiety and cold extremities came into the center complaining of numbness in his feet and late night cravings for junk food due to the stress of his demanding job. After the first visit, he had already noticed positive improvements regarding the symptoms he had described. After 5 acupuncture treatments, he noticed that his anxiety was controlled better and his cold extremities and late night cravings gone.
