I was also referred to Michael by a close friend. I decided to try acupuncture because of major issues with chronic nausea. After going through multiple tests and various medications, I chose to explore a different route. I have had great results with Michael! I've been having significantly less nausea problems since I started (I've been going about 3 months now). Michael has been extremely helpful along the way and has done a good job of explaining acupuncture and its benefits. I would definitely recommend his practice.
I found Michael's practice online when I was diagnosed with a severely herniated disc at the C6-C7 level. In the first few treatments, Michael helped me reduce the swelling in the back of my head and also radically reduced the tingling in my fingers. He blends his knowledge of orthopedic care with his expertise in acupuncture so that you truly get the best of both worlds. And an added bonus is that he is extremely patient-centered and truly cares about helping his patients. I'd recommend Michael to anyone suffering back or neck pain; he's a great healer.
I had been struggling with tension headaches for several years. Bad enough that they would pull me off the ski slopes on a beautiful powder day. I tried everything. A friend recommended acupuncture, so I decided to give it a shot. After my first few sessions with Michael, the headaches were gone completely. I had a few maintenance sessions following that, and I have been tension headache free for over two years. I could not be happier with the results. Michael is outstanding at what he does.
I've had a few sessions and so far I've noticed a reduction in pain. I have had lower back problems for 3 years now, and I've tried many many different treatments (steroid injections, yoga, massage therapy, you name it). So far this has worked the best! This guys seems to know what he is doing. I've tried OTHER acupuncturists whom have had no effect. I've recommend him to friends and family. We will see, I don't want to jinx it you know....
Pros: Pain Reduction
I was recently referred to Michael from my orthopedic surgeon at Orthopedic associates in Rose hospital. I was diagnosed with a bulging disc in my back and was having sever pain down my leg. I told my doc I was not interested in surgery at this point and that is when he recommended Michael Lay at Uptown Acupuncture. After talking with Michael about my problem we decided on a course of action and now my pain is completely gone. I went to see him a total of 8 times over 6 weeks or so and now have no pain. Michael is extremely knowledgeable in orthopedics from both an eastern and western perspective. If you have any pain this would be the place to go.
Pros: Knowledgable, caring, relaxing environment
I was referred to Michael by a close friend of mine. Having never had received acupuncture treatment previously, I was a bit apprehensive to try it. I have had chronic neck pain from a car accident 10 years ago. For this, I have received chiropractic treatment off and on for 7 years. While the chiropractic work helped, I felt like it was unnatural and addictive. In less than 10 sessions with Michael I am pain free. I highly recommend his services. He is attentive and professional and best of all it really works!
Pros: Service, Location
Cons: Cost (cost is reasonable, but if insurance doesn't cover)
I was referred to Michael by my neurologist for chronic back pain and sciatica. I had been working with my neurologist when he recommended that I try Uptown Acupuncture when we could not solve the problem. I had suffered with chronic back pain my whole life but it started getting worse gradually and affecting my leg so I was referred to a neurologist. He recommeded Michael to me as a form of conservative treatment. After 10 sessions with Michael my pain was completely gone. Now I go one time a month for follow ups and I feel the best I have felt in years. I would highly recommend Uptown Acupuncture.
Pros: Knowledgable , Professional
I have struggled with 2-3 headaches a week since I was 13 years old and only after 2 months of acupuncture I have maybe 1 headache a month. I have also felt a tremendous relief in the knots in my neck and have had far less pain in my neck since recieving acupuncture treatments. I finally feel good and without medication.
Pros: Good location, Timely treatment, Great environment
