Last summer, my wife and welcomed a baby boy into our family. Everything was wonderful until I threw my back out and was unable to carry my son. I had heard through a friend that Dr. Schwerte’s practice was somehow different, and more personal than other acupuncturists. I’m pleased to say that this is true. Schwerte is a calm and calming presence. He listens carefully to what you have to say, and really remembers you on follow-up appointments. After just two visits, my back pain was nearly gone, and that’s not due to the acupuncture alone, but thanks to concise, sound advice about posture, exercise, and lifting techniques. After a week, I was able to carry my son around the city for hours at a time. He’s grown about 15 pounds since then, and the back pain hasn’t returned!
