“I began going to Shane Berquist after finding out that acupuncture has helped many people with sleeping problems such as insomnia, of which I am a sufferer. I had gone to sleep specialists, received therapy, been prescribed medication, and self medicated to try to deal with my insomnia, and all of it was met with limited success. I was willing to try anything, although I was skeptical of acupuncture. My first meeting with Shane showed him to be professional, caring, and knowledgeable. I began receiving treatments two-three times per week, and although I was not “cured,” my sleep did improve. I looked forward to my treatments during the week, and Shane was always willing to answer any questions that I had, speak to any concerns that I was feeling, and he kept a very good mental record of how I was doing from week to week and month to month. The acupuncture itself was unlike anything I had ever experienced. My best description of it is an active trance, wherein I never felt incapacitated or not in control, but still incredibly relaxed and conscious that my body and mind we being stimulated to heal themselves, which I learned is the purpose of acupuncture. As Shane explained to me, and it makes sense to me, the body wants to heal itself. That is why when we get cuts, they eventually scab over if they are taken care of. It is why we vomit if we have food poisoning or why our temperature increases in an attempt to kill viruses. Acupuncture helps to stimulate the body’s natural defenses against what is ailing us, and in my case, it helped to relax me when I was anxious about my insomnia, and it helped me to get a handle on my nightly sleep. For the past 5 months I have slept better than I have in two years. I have the occasional restless night, but they are not the pattern that they were for so long. I am grateful to Shane Berquist for his help.”
“I initially sought acupuncture for a shoulder injury I sustained falling off my bicycle. It had been months since the accident, but I was experiencing recurring muscle spasms and tenderness in my shoulder and surrounding muscles in my back, neck and arm. Before I considered acupuncture, I was prescribed muscle relaxers by my doctor. These obviously helped with the pain, but did little to remedy the injury that was causing the ongoing muscle spasms. I had never tried acupuncture before, and I was admittedly a little anxious about the prospect of being stuck with needles, but after a little research, it sounded like something that could really help with my injury. I was lucky to schedule my first appointment with Shane Berquist, because shortly into the introductory consultation, my anxiety had all but dissipated. Shane took time to listen to exactly how I was experiencing the pain in my shoulder and seemed determined to truly assess the best approach to treat it. I left even after my first session with noticeably less pain in my neck, back and shoulder and considered the possibility that I was experiencing a placebo effect (having never tried acupuncture before that, I was still a bit of a skeptic.) The proof was in the pudding, however, because after only five sessions with Shane in conjunction with an herbal remedy that he prescribed, the pain that I had been struggling with for months had disappeared, nor has it resurfaced in over a year! Aside from his evident technical expertise, Shane emotes a clear desire to help those in pain, and possesses an enthusiastic passion for his practice. I often recommend him to friends and peers and feel quite fortunate to know that I have such a talented professional to turn to for treatment and care.”
