Pain relief that works!. After suffering a debilitating auto accident I saw every kind of Doctor imaginable. The chiropractor, physical therapists and Dr's tried but could not help with pain relief. Finally, I made an appointment with Chris at Rittenhouse Acupuncture and the relief from the pain was immediate. I still see him on a regular basis and highly recommend him to any one who appreciates honest and ethical treatment. It's nice to see a professional who cares about his patients well being. Thanks for the great treatments Chris!
Madea real difference!.
I have suffered on an off with lower back pain for 30 years. It had gotten pretty bad, so I tried a chiropractor - to no avail.. A friend who used Chris Hudson raved about the relief she got from neck pain, so I decided to try him.
The results I got were outstanding. I felt Chris made a huge difference in my quality of life. I continue to go regularly.
I live in the suburbs, so getting to Chris means driving in and paying for parking, or taking the train - neither very convenient. But I get there because it is WORTH it!
Chris really shows a level of caring that's rare in practitioners!
Joint Relief. I highly recommend Chris Hudson for treatment of joint pain. I have had mild to moderate rheumatoid arthritis for about 6 years, with some permanent joint damage. After 3 or 4 weekly acupuncture sessions, my joint pain began to improve, and the swelling in my hand joints noticeably decreased. Chris encouraged me to increase the time between treatments to keep the cost down. After two or three months of treatment, I was able (with my rheumatologist's agreement) to reduce my medication to half my customary dose. I have also been taking the supplement Collagenex, which Chris recommended. Since I started treatment with Chris, I would estimate my joint pain has decreased by 60 to 70%. It may be a coincidence, but I doubt it - this is the longest and most complete remission I have experienced since being diagnosed with RA. If you have chronic pain, you should definitely give Rittenhouse Acupuncture a try - and by the way it doesn't hurt.
No need to look any further....
I was fortunate enough to find Christopher Hudson and I cannot be more thankful. I was put on medication for some premenstrual anxiety I had suffered with. After being on it for years, I decided along with my doctor that I can come off of it. Well if you are unaware of "discontinuation syndrome" that is associated with coming off of anti-depressants you are lucky. I was anxiety ridden worse than ever before, could not eat, flu-like symptoms, etc. I went into Chris's office with tears in my eyes ready to go back on medicine just to feel "normal" again. I had never done acupuncture before and was scared and hopeless.
Chris took an extensive history and let me go on and on about my fear of whether or not this was the right choice for me. He was honest and knowledgeable about acupuncture and overall general health. He has been a God send to me, and I can't thank him enough for helping me feel "myself" again. I have already referred numerous friends to him.
Take a deep breath and call Christopher Hudson, you will not be disappointed.
Fantastic!. I cannot recommend Christopher Hudson @ Rittenhouse Acupuncture enough.. both my husband and I go to him for different health issues, and we are very happy with the improvements so far... I've only had 4 visits and already some of the health issues I have been struggling with for almost a year (with no help from conventional doctors) are much improved. In addition I have not been this calm/able to manage stress in years..
Highly, highly recommend. Chris is fabulous and his acupuncture extremely therapeutic. I came to Chris three years ago in terrible pain from a strained back—which had for years intermittently struck me out of commission—and he was able to provide me relief as well as a materially shorter healing period. Since then I started booking preventive appointments—about every three months at first, more recently every two weeks as life has gotten a bit crazier—and this has worked to keep my back strong and pain free (and has restored my overall calm and serenity to boot). Getting some control over my back has been a huge change in my life, and a great comfort: over the years I had tried other preventive and pain-relief measures to no effect, both in traditional medicine but also including other acupuncturists in London and New York, when I lived in those cities. I’m so very glad that I did not give up on the intuition that acupuncture could help my back, because through Chris Hudson it has! He is modest, compassionate, and pragmatic in approach—unlike many practitioners he will tell you treatment may not work—but is expert and his work, by my experience, highly effective. Now that I am moving again I will be regularly coming back to Philadelphia expressly for acupuncture with Chris Hudson. Highly, highly recommend.
Excellent and Effective Acupuncture. Chris improved several long-standing health problems related to heart, lungs (asthma), and musculo-skeletal problems. I noticed immediate improvement after the treatment. By the third treatment 5 weeks later, I felt measurably better with better physiological function and more energy. I have used acupuncture in the past. I don't understand it, but it works. Chris seems unusually adept at it. I recommend him highly and without reservation.
Improvement Beyond Expectation.
I cannot recommend Christopher Hudson enough. I first visited him seeking relief from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain after physical therapy and medication had offered limited results. While I was optimistic, I was not prepared for the significant improvement I saw in all aspects of my health after just a few treatments.
While it was my intolerable back/neck pain that motivated me to seek Christopher's help, I suffer from a variety of chronic conditions, including migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, narcolepsy, overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, ADHD, allergies, asthma, and anxiety. In my first visit, Christopher took a comprehensive health history and listened patiently and asked great questions as I outlined my extensive medical history. This was my first glimpse into his thorough, conscientious and compassionate approach to treatment. He thoughtfully explained the acupuncture process in general as well as the many areas he thought I could benefit from treatment.
Christopher has exceeded my expectations by far. In addition to the considerable relief to my back and neck, I have seen significant improvement to my headaches, gastrointestinal symptoms, sleep quality, energy levels and overall moods. Not only do I feel better physically, but I also have a more positive and resilient attitude. He continues to amaze me – thoughtfully listening as I explain seemingly unrelated connections, he is able to make incredibly insightful connections he is able to make from seemingly unrelated symptoms.
I am confident that anyone can benefit from Christopher Hudson’s acupuncture treatment. My only regret is that I hadn’t contacted him sooner. Don’t wait like I did – call him and start feeling better today.
Acupuncture with Professionalism and Thoughtfulness. I met Christopher Hudson about a year and a half ago after moving back from Europe, where I had lived for the past ten years. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism when I was about six years old, although it was suspected that I started to suffer from the condition at the age of three, which brings me back to Chris, well for anyone who knows some of the inconvenient and upsetting side effects of having a hormonal imbalance is hair loss, which for a woman is even more disturbing and devastating. When I was first seen by Chris he treated me with the utmost respect and consideration and like any esteemed professional listened to me as I explained to him how I had virtually lost almost all of my hair, due to my thyroid problem, and how much this had afflicted me in every aspect of my life. I can now say that it was well worth it to have considered acupuncture as an alternative to conventional medicine, which was not helping me in any way, and sometimes even making things worse. I no longer wear my head scarf, which I had been wearing for about two years and am happy to say I now have a full head of hair and my confidence restored and haven't had any problems with my thyroid levels since my treatments started. I hope that this can help other people with the same problem especially women like myself who think there is no solution, but there is! Thank you Chris for everything!!!!
