Our Patient Testimonials ...



"Acupuncture has done amazing things for me emotional, physically and mentally from helping me handle stress more calmly, eliminating my hot flashes, freeing me of chronic neck pain and has also helped with bouts of sore muscles and tendinitis. I can't say enough good things about acupuncture. AND Valerie is caring, thoughtful and compassionate. I also can't say enough about her."

"I have to thank Valerie for helping me with my sleep disorder and the numbness in my right arm. For the past 6 years, I would wake at 4am unable to fall back to sleep. I have also had numbness in my right arm for over 2 years. I tried surgery, testing for nerve damage, and even visited a chiropractor, but nothing helped. I tried Black Sheep Acupuncture and after only 6 weeks the numbness is almost completely gone and I am sleeping peacefully 7-8 hours a night. I can’t thank Valerie enough. I can now play catch with my grandson and I have no pain."

"Valerie has helped me in more ways then you can count. My symptoms went away after several treatments"

"I had a lot of joint pain. Fingers, knees, hands, hip, wrist. A lot of that pain has gone away. I do have pain it seems as the weather is changing. Rain mostly. I go at least once a week, sometime two times a week. It has helped me so much. There are weeks I cannot get to acupuncture at all. After those weeks I can't wait to be able to return. It is relaxing and it really has helped me so much. Thank you!"

"Those aches and pains of getting older have disappeared or are significantly reduced (Shoulders, knees and an injured finger). The injured finger is healing much faster than the Physical Therapists expected. Circulation has improved to my cold hands and feet."

"I had migraines about 3-4 times a week and was on 4 different medications for it. I'm now off all of the medication because I have gotten more relief from acupuncture than I have the medicine I was put on to cover my symptoms."

"It really helped my back pain."

"I had plantar fasciitis and I haven't had any issues since I've gone to Val. I was also wondering how people could sleep there and I told her that the needles gave me anxiety. Should took care of the issues by placing additional needles in my ears and I can't believe it but I fell asleep. LOL"

"My sinus are doing alot better since visiting Black Sheep. I have been able to wart off major discomforts by having acupuncture at the on set of pain. This is a very cost effective process to keep your body tuned up and running as it should."

"It has helped decrease my anxiety. It has also greatly relieved pain in my wrists and hands, from working on computers so much."

"Acupuncture has helped me deal with a stressful period in my life. I will not go into all of the details, but I have found it to be the best adjunct therapy I can receive, hands down. Nothing works for me like Valerie and her acupuncture techniques!"

"After two treatments the long persistent pain in my right scapula just vanished. Although I experienced fast relief I continue to come to acupuncture weekly. I find the time I spend at Blacksheep acupuncture to be very therapeutic and I always leave feeling restored and refreshed. If I could I would come every day. The entire experience is wonderful. Valerie is so calm and has such a caring manner and spirit."

"I have been in only three times and already I know the drill. My back continues to heal and I feel calmer and less stressed without the pain."

"I've had severe pain at times with my sciatica problems but with Valerie's help it has not been nearly as bad as in the past. Also my sessions help me to relax and calm my nerves."

"I have bursitis in my shoulder and was about to get cortisone injections but one visit to Val and my shoulder pain was gone."

"I was recommended to get acupuncture from my doctor and my physical therapist and it not only help with my recovery it also helped with other problems I have had with my stomach and nerves"

"I started acupuncture for anxiety, stress and trouble sleeping. Both have improved. When I go regularly, my mood is more even (less up and down). I feel happier, less stressed and I do sleep better."

"I believe that acupuncture has helped heal me of 95% of my symptoms. I can only go once a week because I am a full time student but I truly wish I could go more often. I am a true believer in acupuncture and absolutely love going."

"Diabetes it is getting better all the time. Sugar is always down after a treatment. Bronchial issues couple times a year and this has helped each time. STRESS!!! relieves my headaches and bodyaches. Some arthritis during wet and cold peaks of the year helps tremendously. Plantar Fasciitis -- after treatments pain and heel sensitivity totally gone."

"In addition to reducing tension in forearms and neck/shoulders, I have a faster recovery time on my lips (from playing trumpet professionally), and feel energized. Sinus issues are diminished when I am having acupuncture done regularly."

"I have been able to maintain a medication free life using acupuncture. Over the past, I have learned to listen to my body and head to BS asap. Aches and pains, stiffness and anxiety disappear."

"I am peri-menopausal and find I am completely asymptomatic when I receive acupuncture regularly. (at least every 2 weeks) If I do feel symptoms (fogging brain, anxious, unable to sleep) stopping in for a treatment balances my whole being immediately."

"It has helped so much from stress to recuperation with my concussion. I couldn't ask for better care!"

"Both my husband and I see Valerie for various issues ranging from snoring to carpal tunnel. Many of our problems have either become completely under control or has improved greatly in the short time we have been receiving acupuncture. We are very pleased with the results to date. We know if we had the time to come more often we would heal even me quickly and are grateful to have found our way to acupuncture."

"For me acupuncture has provided a welcomed release of stress. In addition, acupuncture has helped me to be more focused in my day to day activities. If time allows I would like to go back for some treatment on my knee. I feel as though acupuncture treatment could relieve some of the stiffness."
