My name is Gale Hawkins and I have a local business. I was first introduced to acupuncture in November of 2008 by Rangsima Collins of ACWKY. I suffer from Ankylosing Spondylitis form of arthritis and have been followed by most every kind of health care practitioner over the past forty years with varying degrees of success but had never tried acupuncture due to no practitioner in Murray, KY. While I did not expect acupuncture to reverse the joint damage of the past forty years I was hoping for some pain relief but got a much more. For the first time in about twenty-five years I wake up each morning pain free when prior to last November I would awake due to pain and would have to get out of bed and move around or get in a hot shower to help reduce the pain level. I could take pain medicine but found I could not function and take pain medicine at the same time so I took mega doses of fish oil instead which did decrease the pain in my case. After I started being able to sleep all night and wake up pain free my energy level increased and my ability to walk for longer distances, get up and down and to think well has improved and others have commented on the improvements. While I have a medical background I wanted to try acupuncture because I had tried about everything else. It works for me and is very affordable.
