“Before meeting Dr. Kerr, my neuropathy pain was debilitating, making simple day-to-day tasks almost impossible to accomplish (and at time impossible to accomplish). The pain and overall body discomfort was exhausting and isolating, preventing me from living any kind of normal life – life was consumed with efforts to manage my pain which I was not successful at until meeting Dr. Kerr. During my first acupuncture treatment with Dr. Kerr, I received some immediate relieve from my nerve and body pain. Subsequent visits have continued to provide extremely beneficial relieve, and for longer periods of time. The acupuncture treatments are amazing. Treatments provide me with a sense of ‘freedom from pain’. The treatments are relaxing and have helped me gain a greater sense of self-awareness about my body and how best to manage my pain. Currently, I’ve been implementing a layered therapy approach – acupuncture treatments with Dr. Kerr, along with aquatic therapy and yoga have helped me gain a greater control over my pain. In my opinion, acupuncture treatments with Dr. Kerr have been the key to much of my pain management success. Everyone should have acupuncture. Thank you Dr. Kerr.” – Carla Mills, Cheshire
