Acupuncture relieves pain from osteoarthritis
I have very bad osteoarthritis on my neck. It was very painful, I suffered a lot, and could not even bend my neck to eat a plate of food. I went to many different doctors, had cortisone injection twice, had acupuncture from two other professionals, nobody could help me! I had to take strong medicine for pain every single day for nine months. My stomach could not take so much medicine anymore. Thanks God I found Dr Olga Ways!!! She did a series of acupuncture and laser treatments on my neck and the pain is completely gone! I haven’t taken any medicine for pain for over 15 days now. I`m so happy, and feel like a different person today: I can even sew and crochet... I highly recommend Dr. Olga Ways. She is very good professional, very kind, and knows what she is doing! Thank you, Olga, God bless you!

Acupuncture helped to recover from knee surgery
Dr. Olga Ways helped me recover from the knee surgery due to a sport injury. Her acupuncture technique combined with electrical stimulation reduced the swelling and relieved pain in the area allowing me to stop taking the pain medication and recover faster. She is very professional, knowledgable and exhibits a genuine care for her patients. I highly recommend this acupuncture physician to everyone.

Back pain relieve with acupuncture
I went to see Dr. Ways after suffering from chronic back pain.
When I arrived at her office she warmly welcomed me, led me to a treatment room, and did an extensive intake of my medical history. She then explained to me how she could help, and developed a treatment plan. Her acupuncture technique was virtually painless and I felt very relaxed. By the next morning my back pain had been drastically reduced! I went back a few more times and can say that my back pain is completely gone now and I have resumed my regular activities.
I would, without hesitation, highly recommend Dr. Ways. She is confident, smart, caring and compassionate, and I am sure she can help you just as she did for me.

Acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia.
I have a trauma induced trigemial neuralgia. I am on a prescription medication and have had constant headaches for about 8 months before I was recommended by my regular Western Medicine doctor to see Dr. Ways for acupuncture. By the second acupuncture session, I started experiencing pain relief. Dr. Ways also helped me by explaining how I can use the right pressure points for my condition. After a series of acupuncture treatments, I have gone from daily headaches to one weekly most of the time. I recommend Dr. Ways and acupuncture from the bottom of my grateful heart.
