I Got My Life Back

The only reason I gave Affinity Acupuncture 5 stars is because that is the max that Google allows. My sessions at Affinity have truly changed my life. I developed neuropathy, a condition that causes your feet to feel pain, numbness, and tingling. William at Affinity diagnosed the problem and began treatment. I soon got my life back. I was able to walk and exercise again. I am about to turn 75, but now, thanks to Affinity, I feel years younger!

Pain Free

“Been dealing with a bad back (all lumbar disks compressed) for nearly a month and after one visit my back is nearly pain-free… a huge improvement from before the treatment. William was quick, professional, and kind. I’m looking forward to getting my neck and other problem areas resolved as well!”

– Mitch D

Truly Amazing Medicine

“I have been a client at Affinity for almost two years and offer my highest recommendation. William is the best and has helped me with everything I have thrown at him. He listens to his clients and provides the best and most effective treatment options available to address their needs. Each time he introduces me to a new experience, I learn to respect him more. Acupuncture can be scary to a novice, but it is truly amazing medicine and has changed my life.”

A New, Pain-Free Man

The team at Affinity Acupuncture have always been very friendly and professional. The outcome of the treatments always amaze me. I suffered from neck and back pain every day for many years. It is now a very rare day that I am in pain. I tried many treatments and therapies that didn’t work. When I completed my treatment with Affinity, I was a new, pain-free man. I highly recommend.
