“I had my first allergic reaction to shellfish on my 34th birthday. My birthday lunch of shrimp landed me in bed with a migraine for five days (along with other nasty reactions I won’t go into!) After trying shellfish one more time (just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke) I was forced to swear off all my favorite crustaceans – shrimp, crab, lobster and scallops. Three years ago a friend told me that he had the same allergy, but had received acupuncture and was now able to enjoy shellfish once again. I was skeptical but put acupuncture on my list of things to check out.

While accompanying my sister to one of her acupuncture appointments to Riverwest Acupuncture last January Lisa said she could help me with my allergy. After a short discussion of the process I began my treatment. Six treatments later I was ready to try my first taste of shellfish in 25 years. Nothing has ever tasted as good as that first shrimp (except maybe a double chocolate molten fudge cake with vanilla ice cream.) I am happy to report that I have been enjoying the yummy taste of shellfish for three months, symptom free! My only regret is I didn’t know years ago how acupuncture will help your body work as it should. Thank you to Lisa and the wonderful staff of Riverwest Acupuncture.”
