I had a painful kink in my neck and was having trouble turning my head from side to side, not to mention looking up. I went in to Dr. Abels based on a friend’s recommendation and it was a smart choice. Dr Abels took time to gather information about what was bothering me and how it might have been caused. He then conducted an acupuncture treatment and afterwards, talked through some suggestions for next steps. All I can say is, I can now turn my head without pain and have more freedom of movement. He clearly knew exactly where to place the needles. I think it’s probably a more regular routine I should get into given I work at a desk 24/7 and look down at my mobile way too much. His prices (which probably vary depending on your provider) are reasonable. His office is clean, secure and professional. I definitely feel better about getting my body in better health after my session with Dr Abels. Highly recommend, especially if you’re nervous about doing it for the first time. I suspect people familiar with acupuncture will recognize right away how good Dr Abels is.

I came in for some shoulder pain and left feeling so amazing! the acupuncture needles eased a lot of tension and afterwards Mr. Abels treated my shoulders with some massage techniques. Never have I felt better and re-energized! I'm ready to be back at work!

After just 2 sessions, Dr. Abels was able to reduce the discomfort/pain from my rhomboid by 80% and now it's completely resolved and on monthly maintenance to prevent it from resurfacing. So glad that Dr. Abels was recommended to me.
