What Patients Are Saying

I stumbled into Alban Acupuncture 3 years ago after trying countless things including doctors, specialist, and prescription medication. At the time I was having a host of issues that I didn’t know were intricately related. I suffered from endless cycles of adult acne which took a tole on my self confidence level. If that wasn’t enough, 7-12 days out of the month I would not feel myself with PMS symptoms ranging from chronic fatigue.

For seven straight days every month I suffered from migraines. Both my mother and sister also had the same condition so for years I had written it off as hereditary and tried managing the migraines with medication. I’d have to keep switching medications as I’d build up a tolerance and didn’t want to keep increasing my dosage.

– M.G. from NYC

After suffering for months from horrible, nagging sinus headaches, further complicated by the cumulative stress from caring for my 17-month-old child, I chose to give acupuncture a try. It has been one of the best health decisions that I have made for myself. When I was first diagnosed with sinusitis many months ago, I was prescribed antibiotics and other medication.
