I used to take a strong painkiller and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for my arthritic disease. I also attended chiropractic and osteopathic practitioners for pain relief (my feet and ankles are the most painful joints). They sometimes did helped to reduce the pain, but it never stopped. Since my very first treatment at the Meridian Clinic 4 years ago, I found complete relief from pain. It was so good I walked for several hours afterwards which I couldn't before. Amazingly, after 6 weekly treatments, the pain in my feet and ankles was almost gone, and my life got back to normal again! Now I just attend once a month for maintenance and the result has been successfully kept steady. I have no need for regular pain medication any more! So I strongly recommend Meridian Clinic's acupuncture to all who suffer with pain.
