Great experience!. I found Chris in my search for an alternative to a number of health problems that came up for me. I have allergies, eczema, hashimoto's thyroiditis, rheynaud's, IBS and developed uveitis (eye inflammation) which doctors thought was due to internal inflammation caused by an immune disorder. They did not find anything but thought there was something happening internally with my immune system. I went to Chris very frustrated and anxious about what was happening. In the meantime I was going through the application process to a PhD program. In sum, Chris was very knowledgeable and recommended some supplements that have really helped. He was very gentle and understanding and I found that my anxiety was greatly reduced while going to Chris. The uveitis is completely gone since going to Chris regularly. My eczema still flares up but it too improved. Overall, I would highly recommend Chris. He is not only a great acupuncturist but a great person as well! I have since moved out of the Philly area to start a PhD program...I really miss going to acupuncture with him!!
Relief from intestinal disorder.
I took an appointment with Christopher Hudson to get some help with gastrointestinal problems
(epigastric pain and loose stools after the removal of my gallbladder).
Christopher took the time to run a comprehensive evaluation and he made me feel comfortable right away. After the first session I felt relief and my health improved dramatically after the third session.
Christopher also treat me for stress and the results were immediate and very efficient. I had previous experiences with acupuncture but I have never met an
acupuncturist so attentive and gentle with the placement of needles. To me he is the best by far. If you are looking for somebody who will really take the time to listen and make a difference, Christopher is the one.
Greatly reduced severe pain from thoracic outlet syndrome. Christopher Hudson made a tremendous difference in my ability to recover from severe neck and shoulder pain. I was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) and had been referred by my neurologist to a physical therapist who specialized in TOS. Unfortunately the pain and stiffness in my neck prevented me from progressing. I spoke to several people who routinely received acupuncture for severe pain and learned that it was important to find someone which numerous years of experience and a gentle touch. After some investigating, I found Chris who seemed to fit the bill. After only two sessions I was dramatically better, so much so, that the physical therapist immediately noticed the difference. With the help of Chris’ expert technique I was finally able to complete physical therapy and get back to the biking that I enjoy so much. Part of Chris’ success is the personalized attention he provides. He takes the time to get to know his patients and develop a treatment strategy that will best work for their situation. His skill is remarkable and has never caused me any significant discomfort. I still periodically see Chris if I am feeling any flaring of the problem which has been both helpful for my neck and psyche. I should also note that after seeing my dramatic improvement, my physical therapist began referring patients to Chris.
Chris managed to alter my mood, my health, and my career path all within a few months of acupuncture appointments. I suffered from sinus problems and post nasal drip and with Chris' help these issues have all but disappeared. He also has helped with stress relief. Two appointments a month have had a very relaxing and beneficial affect. All of these things have contributed to me wanting to help other people find better health and happiness through holistic channels.
I strongly advise anyone looking to improve their health and mood to go to Chris. He is friendly, professional, and without an uncomfortable salesman mentality.
Best Acupuncture in Philly!. I have been suffering from anxiety for most of my adult life. I have been on Lexapro, and tried a variety of other herbal anti-anxiety supplements. Lexapro relieved my anxiety, but left me with a dull feeling, and I hated the like the idea of being on medication most of my life (since the anxiety came back after going off the medication). After a recent episode of depression which was caused by anxiety, I looked up acupuncture on Citysearch and read Chris's reviews. I immediately called him, and got an appointment a few days later. After my first appointment, I felt more calm then I've felt in years and the best part was that it lasted! The great part about acupuncture is that it helped me with some digestive issues and headaches along with the anxiety. Chris listens to your specific concerns and modifies the treatment each time to help you with whatever problems you may be having at the time. Since I don't have health insurance, it is an affordable way to maintain my health without the extra cost of expensive medications that never seem to work. I would recommend Chris for acupuncture to anyone who would like an affordable personal treatment for a variety of health issues. I recommend him to all of my friends and family! Chris is friendly and easy to talk to, and really listens to all of my concerns. I only wish I knew about Rittenhouse Acupuncture years ago, because I feel like I've gotten my life back!
A Great Help. I have suffered with migraine headaches for many years and have tried everything to help manage the pain. After reading about Rittenhouse Acupuncture, I decided to give it a try and have been very happy with the results. The acupuncture treatments have not only helped with my headaches but with stress and anxiety. I have noticed that I feel calmer in all situations and am not as anxious. Christopher Hudson has a very caring way about him, is easy to talk to, and makes you feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend him for acupuncture treatment for any kind of pain.
Miracle Worker!. I went to Chris after suffering from headache lasting 4 months; when I walked out of his office, it was gone. I've gone to him several times, though not as frequently as I'd like due to a student budget, and each time I felt better than the last. I've had anxiety for my entire life, and have attempted to remedy it using everything from medication to therapy; Chris' accupuncture is the only thing that works. Whether you're an accupuncture devotee or simply curious, Chris provides the perfect treatment. He is attentive, friendly, thorough, and unfailingly courteous to his customers. I've recommended him to more people than I can count, and I would certainly recommend him to anyone curious enough to research acupuncture on Citysearch. Chris is money well spent!
Quit Smoking with Acupuncture. I needed to stop smoking once and for all. I was opposed to taking medication to quit smoking but knew I couldn't do it on my own. I researched alternate possibilities and found that acupuncture could help in the areas I had previously struggled with when I tried quitting - restlessness, anxiety, irritability, cravings. I found Christopher Hudson on the internet and within a week I was in his office with my 7 day count down underway. His plan has been to really treat the problem areas and what a pleasure it has been! Who knew quitting anything would be so rewarding?!? I've found myself to be more relaxed than when I was smoking. The treatments have been really effective with the smoking (5 weeks and counting...) and my experience with Christopher will keep me coming back on a regular basis to maintain the wonderful relaxed state I've been experiencing with each visit.
Phenomenal results with Christopher Hudson!. I walked in truly miserable and walked out a different person. I have never had an Acupuncture session that worked as quickly as my time with Christopher. I was able to feel good inside and out because during our time together, I felt Christopher had become my friend as well as my healer. He listened carefully to my concerns and assured me that he could help. I really wish people will know to discover Christopher's amazing talents.
Finally, someone who listens!. I was looking for an acupuncturist to calm my severe eczema and asthma. When I called Chris Hudson, I knew right away he would be able to help. I?ve seen dozens of dermatologists and pulmonologists but all they could offer was a prescription for another steroid, despite my clear opposition to such medications. Chris actually listened to me, and he helped me understand why these symptoms were occurring. He really got to know me as a person, and treats my mind/body as one. Although my progress was slow, (most skin ailments take time to mend) my life drastically improved from treatment. I?ve been able to live almost completely medicine-free and I owe it all to Chris. I feel very comfortable exploring new methods of treatment with him, because he is very knowledgeable and informative. The individual sessions are extremely relaxing and there is never any pain. I look forward to seeing Chris because we always discover something new in conversation and I inevitably feel better after a treatment. If you are looking for an acupuncturist who will work with you to understand your own health needs then please try Rittenhouse Acupuncture. Chris has very flexible hours and I always feel like I am his only patient.
