Success Stories

These are just a few of the many patient stories we have collected over the years.

depression, anxiety and dependency diminished

After much skepticism, my sister convinced me to come here and give acupuncture a go back at the end of August.

I suffer from PTSD and this manifests itself as debilitating depression and anxiety. This in turn made every day of my life miserable for as far back as I can remember. I was constantly on edge and lashing out at people I love almost on a daily basis. I suffered from phantom pains all over my body and always felt so bad. I had no motivation whatsoever. The idea of waking up feeling good and in a good mood and staying that way throughout the day was a fantasy for me. I thought happiness was for others and not for me and that I was doomed by my mental illness to be like this for the rest of my life.

Aside from mental health issues, I struggled with alcohol dependency. I was drinking over 30 drinks a week easily and sometimes more. I had to drink everyday no matter what or I would become upset. Alcoholism runs in my family and I cannot think of one family member that does not have some form of addiction issues.

Today, I suffer from these things no more. I felt improvement after the first couple of weeks, but after the first month I no longer needed any medication. I feel giddy everyday and excited to be alive. I no longer have unexplained body pains, no longer on edge, no longer being toxic to my loved ones. I feel like I have the motivation to do anything.

Also, I have cut drinking to maybe 3 drinks a week. I no longer have any desire to drink. Although this is not something I brought up to Frank during sessions, I fully believe that the acupuncture cured my addiction. Now if I have a drink I don’t like the way it feels which is a complete shock to everyone I know, even myself lol.

I am at a loss for words trying to explain how thankful I am for my second chance at life. Frank is amazing at what he does and I guarantee you will experience improvement in whatever condition you are facing. If he can fix me, he can fix you!!! And if you are afraid of needles, please push that to the side. I had a huge phobia where if I even saw a needle I would freak out. I simply closed my eyes and asked to not see anything the first time. After the 2nd or 3rd time I couldn’t care less about the needles and now that phobia is completely diminished. That fear is so tiny compared to what you can achieve with the treatments. Just do it!!!! Stop what you are doing and schedule your appointment!


I never knew how much relief I could actually realize with my neck and shoulder pain. It was chronic and I had it for a very long time. After just a few sessions I was feeling good as new. I highly recommend Dr. Grill because of the amazing work he did for me. I also found it to be relatively affordable. Worth every penny. Surely beats waking up in pain every day!

EH, male

I’m a believer.
I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and was being treated for 3 months – with orthotics, brace, wraps, icing, NSAIDs, and physical therapy – before coming here. The condition was getting progressively worse – the doctor scheduled me for an MRI and told me that surgery was likely.
A friend suggested that I try acupuncture. Having no experience or concept of what’s involved, I was hesitant at first. But the pain was so bad I figure anything was worth a try. On my very first visit I was impressed by the knowledge of Frank Grill. He was able to explain to me the cause of the issue and laid out a plan. He did some treatment that day and almost immediately my condition improved. Over the following days, I had more mobility and less pain. A total of 4 visits and I am better than I have been in years.
I highly recommend consulting with Frank if you think you have a condition which can be improved by acupuncture. This is the real deal. I am so thankful that I found him.

FC, low back pain

Dr Frank knows what he is doing and has helped me more than physical therapists, back doctors, especialists and chiropratics combined together over the years. He really cares for his patients.
