I had chronic back pain and sciatica for several years. I had tried physical therapy, chiropractic, and painkillers but nothing helped. I wanted to avoid surgery so decided to try acupuncture despite my fear of needles. Dr. Gallen was very patient and explained the whole process of acupuncture to me. She eliminated my sciatica and back pain after several weeks of treatments. I could not believe it! I would highly recommend Dr. Gallen to everyone who is searching to free their lives of pain. Amazing!
