I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from Dr. Mims, treating severe PMS and perimenopause. I had decided to try it when my symptoms got to the point of scaring me, but my gynecologist basically said I had to just "deal with it" because my blood work didn't show me needing hormone treatments. But that didn't seem right to me. I knew how I felt and it was really, REALLY off. It was affecting everything and everyone in my life.
I was very nervous my first appointment because of the fear of needles and this also being kind of "out there". But it was amazing.... and the needles don't hurt even a tiny bit! She is so patient when I explain all my symptoms and I literally feel emotionally pampered the entire appointment. But the most important things is I notice an immediate improvement of my symptoms. Even my family notices the change in me each week following a treatment. My husband will even joke with me now when I start acting edgy, crazy, or reaching for sugar every 10 seconds that it might be time to see my "needles doctor" again....that, or he will ask if I'm out of my Chinese herbs. Yes, the improvement has been that huge for me.
This time of change is really emotional and kind of scary and it feels like the only real support I have found has been with Dr. Mims. I love sharing how much better I feel with all my friends and I'm so happy I was open to trying something new and different. It has made all the difference in my life.
