Acupuncture has truly given me back my life. I have suffered terrible pain accompanied by headaches from a car accident. I did every conventional medical treatment short of surgery, and the doctors had suggested that. I started acupuncture last July and am amazed at my progress. I am SO grateful to everyone at MCA for healing & kindness. I strongly recommend acupuncture treatment to help with pain and to relax; prepare to be amazed! I wish I could get everyone to try it!

I started getting treatment at Milwaukee Community Acupuncture after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia a year ago. This came after many years of another chronic nerve pain condition and treatment for PTSD. I had just gone through multiple doctor appointments where I felt ignored, distrusted and belittled. Other potential treatment options did not work for me and when things seemed darkest, I remembered that I had luck with acupuncture years before in treating a more minor issue so decided to try the MCA office after reading testimonials online. I felt welcome and accepted the moment I started my treatment at MCA. My concerns, discomfort and frustrations were all treated with respect and empathy. Chronic illnesses can be very distressing, there is no cure and often times there’s a struggle to even get a diagnosis or recognition of the symptoms and pain that is being experienced. You start to question your feelings and pain levels, and many doctors are not yet well versed in how to treat or accept these diagnoses and may not treat them as “legitimate” sources of pain. The doubt can be debilitating. MCA trusted my knowledge of my own body and symptoms. They sought to help me get to a point of balance with my pain levels, to help bring them to manageable levels and keep them there. They’ve helped me learn to recognize triggers for my pain and how to explain what I need help with. And most of all, they’ve validated my lived experience and experiences with my illness. I would encourage anyone who has dealt with a chronic illness to seek out acupuncture treatment with MCA to see if it can be a good fit into a treatment plan. MCA has given me back a semblance of control over my symptoms and has drastically improved my quality of life. I cannot say enough about their care and attention to each individual’s situation. Their sliding scale option also makes care affordable and manageable as an addition to a treatment plan.
I am 33 and encountered a life threatening (and life altering) brain injury back in 2012, and as a result have suffered frequent migraines (multiple per week) and chronic neck pain. I tried several medications only to find that I was tired all the time, and still in pain! I came to the conclusion I did not want to be medicated - the medication didn’t work for me and it altered who I was. I thought, I’ll give Acupuncture a shot - but I was a little skeptical. I first tried it in a hospital-like setting - at $100 a pop. That was just not sustainable for me. But after one session I knew I wanted to do it again. That’s when someone suggested Milwaukee Community Acupuncture (MCA) to me. Within a couple short weeks, acupuncture significantly helped me manage the frequency and intensity of the migraines I was having. It has also helped me “relax” which does wonders for the mind after a traumatic event like mine. And at MCA it is affordable, comfortable and the staff are some of the kindest people I have met. I have been going there for nearly a year now. I get so passionate when I talk about acupuncture now, how it has helped me - and continues to do so. Not only do I highly recommend acupuncture to anyone with pain, stress, nausea, etc. but Milwaukee Community Acupuncture is hands down just an awesome business with a wonderful staff! Anyone who says “I’m afraid of needles”, do yourself a favor and get that out of your head. I was that person and now I look back and think how silly that was. It does not hurt! Acupuncture can change your life. And MCA makes it possible. Thank you Olive and Susan - and all the staff at MCA. You are truly amazing people and an amazing company.
