I suffered for many hears from migraine headaches. After exhausting all conventional medicine and diagnostic testing I turned to acupuncture and Chinese medicine administered by Jason Blalack of Chautauqua Health in Boulder, Colorado. My headaches were of such a nature that when the headache came on I would get great pain in my neck and shoulders. The pain began to interfere with activities of daily life. I tried physical therapy and relaxation medications with no help. Narcotic pain medication would blur the pain but not really relieve the migraines. The new Imitrex type medication were not compatible with my high blood pressure.
Jason was able to relieve my neck and shoulder pain in the very first treatment. He also gave me a tea mixture, which I took and with time and additional acupcunture treatments I was able to completely be free of the debilitating migraines. Today I will occasionally begin to get a migraine but I am able to relieve it with relaxation and ibuprofen. If I occasionally get the neck and shoulder pain a quick trip for a tune up with my wonderful acupuncture therapist will make me comfortable and happy. There are a lot of good therapists but Jason has a great knowledge of both Western medicine and Chinese medicine making him very good at his profession. He is a good listener and thus a good diagnostician. I would recommend Jason to anyone who is frustrated with his or her current treatment and is suffering from a chronic problem.
I am an RN whose father and grandfather were physicians. I feel that Western medicine can benefit from the knowledge and wisdom of ancient Chinese herbal medication and acupuncture.
