Testimonials – Back Pain, Arthritis, Injuries

Lorraine, I cannot tell you how happy I am that my ankle is great! It is amazing! You should be SO proud of yourself! YOU are amazing! I am so grateful to YOU and thank God that I found YOU! On a scale of 1-10, my pain had been between 9 and 10 and a half for a month. It is a 1 or 2 today! Sometimes less than that! I am just thrilled that it is better and I am not in pain like I was! I have prayed every day that God will lead me to someone that could really help me! Thank YOU!

One treatment and the pulled muscle pain is completely gone. Just took a deep breath and don’t feel a thing. Amazing! Thank you.

You are a miracle worker!
Thurs. evening I noticed that I did not have the usual horrible pain I had had each evening for weeks. Later before bed, I’ still had no pain and again no pain. No pain on the road or anytime since. I couldn’t believe it. I haven’t stopped singing your praises since.

After seeing acupuncturist Lorraine only four times I am already experiencing amazing results. I was in a rock climbing accident three months ago and broke my leg. The next day I found myself in the hospital getting prepped for surgery. A plate and screws were put in my leg to hold the bone in place until it healed. The doctor informed me that I was not to put any weight on that leg for three months.

I started seeing Lorraine for acupuncture two weeks before getting off the crutches to reduce the scar tissue in my leg and speed up recovery. I have been off the crutches for less than two weeks now. The physical therapist I am working with is amazed with my recovery. In less than one week off of crutches I could stand on the recovering leg alone for a full minute with no pain. I also recovered full flexion and extension of the leg. The physical therapist claims this is rare in such a short time and wanted to know what I was doing to recover so quickly. He also remarked on the absence of any bulging or binding in and around the scar.

I highly recommend Lorraine Harris for anyone who is recovering from an injury.

I wanted to let you know that on the days my Dad received treatments from you he would feel much better and get some relief from the excruciating back pain. I wanted to Thank you again for your time and treatments which gave my Dad some very much needed relief. After his first treatment, at which he showed up wearing a back brace and walking with a cane, he was very proud to tell us that he did not require the cane when he went to leave. You had given him a hope that the pain would not always be so bad.

I just wanted to tell you Thank you and wish you much success with your business.

I am continuing to stay pain free and no leg problems in bed!!!
Happy summer.

Lorraine wrote a newspaper article for the Ashville Citizen Times. The article expounded the effectiveness of acupuncture for pain, and I thought it made a lot of sense. A cure without chemicals. I decided to give her a call.

I have had sciatica in my hip for over a year and tried several modalities of treatment but did not get any relieve. Since I did not want to expose myself to the risks of conventional medications, acupuncture sounded hopeful.

With my first phone call, Lorraine impressed me as a grounded and practical person and very professional. I decided to give it a try. After only 4 treatments my pain was gone. I also experienced other health benefits, more energy, a brighter outlook on life and a general feeling of well being…

Several years ago I experienced knee pain. I had arthroscopic surgery and several months of physical therapy. I kept up with my exercises etc for a few years. After a time some pain returned. I found it difficult to walk for long periods of time and stairs were most difficult.

In March of 2004, I decided to consult with an acupuncturist. I had seen Lorraine speak on a few occasions and decided to give it a try. I was rather amazed at how quickly the treatments worked for me. I have continued to see her on a regular basis. I am now able to walk up and down stairs normally. I can walk for very long periods of time with little or no effects. I have recommended Lorraine to several of my friends and all of us have had positive results.

After suffering a mysterious neck and shoulder injury that none of the doctors could diagnose, even with MRIs, I was desperate. Eight weeks after my injury, my muscles had atrophied; I had limited use of my right arm and no strength. Then I discovered Lorraine and the wonders of Chinese medicine. Lorraine diagnosed a damaged nerve and began regular treatments that included acupuncture, moxibustion and herbs. It brought immediate results and over the next few months, the nerve regenerated. Along the way she showed me how to help my injury heal more rapidly through diet and special exercises.

Lorraine has been through years of training and it shows. She sincerely cares about your health and your progress, just like the old-fashioned family doctor your parents talk about. My wife now sees her regularly and we have recommended her wholeheartedly to friends. My health has never been better, thanks Lorraine!

Before accupuncture I had grown accustomed to living with mediocre health accompanied with pain and discomfort, but now my life is completely different. I came to Lorraine with a multitude of different, and to me, random problems. I had chronic heel pain, my hair seemed to be thinning for no reason, I had recurring painful headaches, excess weight, and digestive problems. I came to Lorraine thinking they were all separate and disconnected issues. But Lorraine showed me the root of my many discomforts, and educated me about the fascinating world of Chinese Herbs and Oriental Medicine. After only one treatment my problems were already starting to melt away. Now I’m living pain-free, I feel like I have an unbelievable amount of energy. I’m sleeping better, I’m in a better mood, and people are even telling me that I’m losing weight! …

Your treatment for the pain in my arm and shoulder cap really gave me relief. The arm and joints were quite stiff and range of motion was awful. All this was giving me considerable discomfort and was only getting worse and worse. A day after the treatment, I noticed that the discomfort had decreased and by the time I went to my stretch class at the gym, it was much improved. It continues to feel better and I am able to do more and more with the arm without so much discomfort.

Thanks for the work you did on me and for persisting until you found what would counter affect what was happening with the arm.

I am pain free! I haven’t needed regular Tylenol or anything – no pain. Amazing. I was told I would surely need my pain medication after the dental work. I’m sure the endodontist will want all of his patients to have a follow-up acupuncture session with you, or he should.
Thanks!

It’s been a year now since I started acupuncture and herbal therapy. The primary reason I sought help was for relief of arthritis and fibromyalgia pain. I no longer take any medication for these ailments and have not for eleven of those twelve months. Just herbs. I am able to lead a very busy life. And I can sleep on my right hip again. Ah! some small pleasures are very big…

When I met Lorraine, I was about at the end of my rope. I was in extreme physical pain from a long-standing back injury. It was also taking a toll on my mental health and making it difficult for me to enjoy my life. I experienced relief immediately after the first acupuncture session and after several more sessions, my level of pain is minimal and manageable compared to what it was prior to starting acupuncture. Lorraine is caring and professional and provides an excellent service to her clients.

I was scheduled for knee surgery in a week. Meanwhile, my doctor prescribed pain medication for the severe pain and swelling I was experiencing. I was reluctant to take any more medications so I asked Lorraine for help. She used various interesting techniques in treating my knee including acupuncture and something called moxibustion. I could immediately feel a change. By the next day the pain was reduced dramatically. I never did need the pain medications, not even aspirin!
