What better way to write about a Hawaii Local Business except from first hand from experience? Leeward Acupuncture Center, Inc. and my acupuncturist/massage therapist, Diego Leong Roig is everyone's alternative medicine and health care provider!
I made a decision a year ago that would turn out to be the best ‘medical' decision of my life.
The turning point was realizing that there IS an alternative to drugs and operations for certain medical problems. There IS an alternative other than the regular series of standard medical practice for things that would only cause future problems..... And still not ‘cure' the original symptom.
Granted, there are some things that can't be ‘cured' although there IS alternative medicine and health care to relieve most of those aches and pains. I originally went to Diego Leong Roig because of my carpal tunnel and my foot had some kind of nerve damage that was causing severe pain and two numb toes. The doctors before said to wear braces at night and support during the day. Diego Leong Roig said no....that I was babying it and making it worse.
When your career relies on the computer, these two ailments cause interference with work.
After a few months of massage therapy (deep tissue massage) and acupuncture my carpal tunnel was so manageable that I could type comfortably again for hours on end. I eventually had to get cortisone shots in my foot (nerve damage) but the rest of my aches and pains are manageable with my acupuncture/massage therapy appointments every 3 weeks to get the ‘kinks' out.
It also takes a good ‘bedside manner' such as the kind Diego Leong Roig gives both me...and my husband (yes, he goes too!) and his demeanor, professional work ethics and his knowledge and experience are what keeps us going back to him. It also took the understanding that this process will not work ‘overnight' and is not a one shot deal. It's ongoing therapy without a bunch of drugs and healing naturally.
After doing the same thing over and over and getting no relief or results in the past.....we finally understood that this alternative was definitely in order.
Needless to say, it also takes a good insurance provider that agrees with alternative medicine and I am grateful that HMAA accepts and works with acupuncture and chiropractor providers. For more information about HMAA and Acupuncture click here.
