- TestimonialsWhy acupuncture? Why not?! Couldn’t hurt. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for 4 years. We were charting my BBT and watching for “signs” of fertility. We tried a ton of stuff. One day my mother had asked if I had ever considered acupuncture for fertility. She said that she had a co-worker whose daughter tried it for her fertility and after one session she ended up pregnant! I thought about it and figured that we had tried so many other things with no luck so why not give it a try! I talked with my husband who thought the same thing. My first session with Casey was on August 1st. I was a little nervous at first but Casey put me right at ease. We talked a bit before my acupuncture. When the first needle was placed I was surprised to find that I... Read more »
When I decided that I wanted to stop drinking; I knew I needed help. I saw a commercial on tv for a addiction recovery place and in it someone was receiving acupuncture. I thought it was a place to start. I found casey on line and made a appt. He asked questions and took some history with out being judgemental then proceded with a treatment. For the first few weeks I was anxious but Casey gave me herb supplements and had me take note of the triggers that led me to drink. I had 8 treatments in all but have not picked up a drink since my second treatment. That was one year ago today, my life has changed for the better more than I could of imagined.
One year of sobriety was last modified: October 9th, 2012 by caseyI lead a very active lifestyle and for 4 years I had been experiencing pain in my arms as well as fatigue and shortness of breath whenever I worked out. I had been to several doctors who prescribed the general remedies; iron supplements, ibuprofen and rest. Finally I just gave up and conceded to the idea that the pain would never go away. After constant nudging from my training coach I agreed to go see Casey not really knowing what to expect but figuring that there was nothing to lose at that point. Upon my first visit Casey was able to identify the problem. He gave me some ways to help improve the conditions which included modifying my diet and taking herbal supplements in addition to the acupuncture. By the end of the second visit Casey was able to tell me exactly what caused the issue. By the third visit I was already noticing significant improvements in my... Read more »
I sought Casey’s help last year when I started nursing school and became physically ill from all the stress. I had a lot of trouble with my shoulder/back/neck, could not breathe well, and kept having weird pains all over I could not really explain. Casey was able not only to begin unlocking all the chaos in my body, but also to instruct me on the beginnings of better living that have all started coming together. The effects are not always immediate, but I often notice that I can walk taller and sit straighter, like I have had a 50lb weight lifted off my entire being. However, like any true medicine, this is not a fix-all, one time treatment and it should be taken seriously. You really need to change your living habits in order to truly change/fix your health.

After living a year in terrible pain even after a cortisone shot and physical therapy, I was regretfully facing shoulder surgery for an impingement. At this point, I decided to try one last thing…acupuncture. I found Casey through a referral and he was able to completely relieve my shoulder pain through acupuncture…something that I only thought that surgery and a long road of physical therapy would do. I would recommend Casey to anyone considering acupuncture…he explained exactly what he was doing and answered all of my questions, making me feel at ease!

I have been treated by Casey for an arthritic neck and lower back and have felt an over-all effective reaction to the acupuncture treatment. I recommend him to my friends and they also have had good results.

I was referred to Casey Lewis for sciatic pain in my leg, which being a hair dresser was becoming extremely difficult to bear. I was also experiencing hot flashes, day and NIGHT. After one treatment, my pain level immediately went from a 8 to a 1, and I have not had a hot flash since!! I have seen Casey only 6 times in 5 months, and my life now is practically pain free. I would recommend acupunture to anyone looking for an alternative to surgery! Thank You Casey

I saw Casey for 16 sessions recently. When I went to see him on a referral from a friend I was most concerned with back pain, but I was also working on some weight loss and thought this would help, as well as some stress relief. I was amazed that after the first visit I had absolutely no back pain and that would last about the full two weeks until I saw him again. He has also helped me with wrist and knee pain. I was doing mostly diet, not much exercise, in conjuction with acupuncture and through 3 months lost 32 lbs! My colleagues also notice when I have been to see Casey as my stress levels are much improved. I would highly recommend anyone with pain, stress, or an additional option for weight loss to go see Casey. He’s very professional and there’s no pain with acupuncture. Thank... Read more »
I have had 8 sessions with Casey, for a few issues I was having. Horrible leg cramps were keeping me up. After the first session (and it doesn’t hurt) I had a great nights sleep. My hands and fingers do not go numb, and my overall physical and mental feelings have become much better! I definitely recommend this New/Old treatment to anyone with problems, and definitely before you decide to have surgery. It just might avoid it! (like it did for my sister, which is another story 🙂 Thank You Casey

Acupuncture and herbal medicine often go hand-in-hand. Herbal medicine is often used in conjunction with acupuncture, as appropriate, to support the body’s healing process. Just like a traditional medical prescription, herbs are prescribed by Oriental Medicine practitioners to address a variety of health concerns. They are often prescribed as formulas rather than specific individual herbs and are tailored to the needs of the patient. And just like traditional prescription medicine, herbs are adjusted as the patient’s needs change. Some Western hospitals are now utilizing Chinese herbs in their treatment protocols. For example, the Cleveland Clinic has a licensed and certified Chinese herbalist on staff. continue reading

We often say in Traditional Chinese Medicine that the liver is the system most easily susceptible to stress. Stress knots the Qi (energy) and makes its flow stagnate – this happens most quickly in the liver energy system. The liver, in TCM, is in charge of the smooth flow of Qi throughout the body. This means that if Qi flow is impaired (ie, by stress), the liver system will suffer. Likewise, if the liver energy system is weak or stagnant (from lifestyle choices, diet, trauma, emotional stress, illness or genetic factors), Qi flow throughout the body may be impaired. continue reading

Digestive disorders can be simple like flatulence or gas, or they can be much more serious, such as Crohn’s disease. But regardless of the severity of the disease, there is no doubt digestive disorders affect far more people than they should, especially in the United States. A recent survey reports nearly 74 percent of all Americans are living with digestive issues. Most people don’t report it to their doctors either, because they assume it is normal to have gas, bloating or abdominal pain. But these symptoms can be indicators of much more serious underlying problems. continue reading

An allergy occurs when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, called an allergen. This could be anything from something you inhale to something you touch to something you eat. An allergic reaction may cause sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, a running nose, a sore throat and rashes. In severe cases, allergic reactions can induce something known as anaphylactic shock, which can actually be deadly. continue reading
In addition to using acupuncture and other forms of traditional Chinese medicine, there are other ways athletes seek to up their game. One of the simplest ways to increase performance is by watching what you are consuming. You ever heard the saying you are what you eat?
