I met Chris at the Middle Way Acupuncture Institute in Mount Vernon, where I went for regular treatments at the student clinic. I had become familiar with acupuncture a couple of years prior and learned that even issues of an emotional nature, such as addiction, could be helped with acupuncture.

I am almost 70 years old, and for much of my life I have been very overweight, also suffering from bulimia and sugar addiction. Self loathing was my constant companion. I wasted so many years of my life in despair of ever being thin enough or good enough, feeling deep grief for the years of my life that I believed were wasted.

Receiving acupuncture treatments did help with sugar cravings and increased my sense of wellbeing. Chris was exceptionally attentive and understanding as I explained why I had come to the clinic. He understood the problems unresolved grief can cause in the body. I always felt “listened to,” and I knew that when he conferred with the supervisor and his student partner that I would be receiving an effective treatment. I was never disappointed. Chris’ own life experience, his compassion and desire to help others was always evident to me. I truly felt cared for.

I do feel that the acupuncture treatments are a complement to and have assisted me in continuing the spiritual work that is necessary to resolve feelings of deep grief and self hatred. Each treatment that I received gave me the sense of well being that I needed to continue the work of introspection. The quarantine allowed me the time to safely feel those feelings because I was confined to my house. I could not receive acupuncture treatments for a while because of quarantine, but the effects of treatments I received stayed in my body. My life is incredibly better today. I continue to receive acupuncture treatments that add to the quality of my life.

I am an enthusiastic supporter of Chris and his plans and ideas for how he can help others to heal their bodies and their lives using Chinese medicine. I am grateful for getting to know Chris and to realize just how important it is to him to help others. He really did help me, and I am so honored that he asked to use my story of recovery. During the past two or three years I have lost about 30 pounds, and I have gained a greater sense of self love and self respect as well as increased compassion and forgiveness for myself and others.
