Am pleasantly surprised by the expedient results of acupuncture. I came to Dr. Rodrigues through a recommendation from a close friend that experienced positive results with him/acupuncture. I was not to eager for needles to be used in my body (did not even feel most of the needles ). I am a jogger and had pain that extended down from my right hip,thigh, calve, all the way down to the tips of my toes. I endured this for 8 mo. The pain became unbearable when jogging and had started to bother me even when walking. I felt immediate relief after the first session. The second and third session were the convincers that acupuncture works. Three days after the third session I was able to jog around White Rock Lake (9mi) without any pain. Incredible! Dr. Rodrigues' pleasant and positive approach to life is also reflected from his nurses and staff. The waiting room is peaceful and soothing complete with an aquarium that adds to the already positive energy filled space. My mind, body, and soul were positively influenced. Rejuvenated!!!
