Chronic lumbar pain and pinched sciatic nerve
I have suffered from chronic lower back pain for years and have had some very good acupuncture treatments in Florida and in Northern Virginia. But, I have to say that Chris is by the far the best, most comprehensive and effective acupuncturist that I have seen over the past 3 years. His knowledge is extensive and his ability to treat my condition and alleviate my pain has helped me tremendously. His holistic approach to wellness is a wonderful addition to his skills and his success in treating me. I highly recommend him.
Amazing (Neck/Back Pain)
I am and was a skeptic however the pain in my neck back and traps was so intense I had to try anything doctor medication nothing helped i took one treatment and something called cupping in 24 hrs I was a new person. Chris is simply amazing. His skill, professionalism and attention to detail are unique in this day and age. I highly recommend to anyone to visit with Chris, simply amazing.
Excellent pain relief, increased function, and overall well being
As a healthcare professional, the care, explanations, professional care, and effective treatment and pain relief was amazing. Totally beyond expectations, to the point that seeing Chris the day I tore my rotator cuff, decreased my rehab and avoided surgery. His work on my hip and back increased functionality and kept me off pain meds and off the OR table.
Chris Grodski Rocks!
He is professional, compassionate and proficient. He maintains confidentiality (I never knew my girlfriend was also seeing him until she told me!), provides extra attention (never hurries me, assures my comfort), explains processes and techniques in detail, and is always patient. Very importantly – his work is effective!
If you were asked to choose between a healthcare provider who is an excellent provider OR has a great bedside manner, you don’t have to choose… Chris is both!
Truly Helpful for Shingles
Chris was so knowledgable about the whole body and was extraordinarily in tune to all of my various symptoms during a really painful and difficult time. I attribute the success of my long term healing process to his guidance, recommendations, and treatments.
The man responsible for getting me pregnant
The man really responsible for getting me pregnant! Ha! No really, his acupuncture and traditional chinese medicine did the trick after being told to go find donor eggs! Chris, I cannot thank you enough!
Chris did some acupuncture on me while he was still in school, he was like a pro. I would recommend Chris to all of my friends if he was in Chicago.
Chris is top notch. There’s more to Chris than just having an acupuncture treatment. He has a very healing presence and is very intuitive, kind, and professional. He picks up on subtle energetic needs and spends the time doing extremely thorough work. I have never had an acupuncturist this thorough. His herbs are also very powerful. He has helped me with bad sinus infections and between seasons. Stamford is very lucky to have him, and I will be making the trip each quarter.
Great Experience (Migraines/Mestrual Difficulty/Digestive Allergies)
I have suffered from severe migraines almost every single day for the past eight years. I have tried almost every medication out there and many had terrible side effects and most did not work for very long, if at all. After a few treatments with Chris my migraines have decreased significantly, and I have not had one for almost a month without negative side effects! He is a skillful practitioner who clearly cares about his patients. I also have had digestive and menstrual issues for my entire life and have noticed vast improvements in these areas as well. I would highly recommend his treatment for skeptics and “believers” alike!
When I developed tendonitis in my elbow I needed relief. Chris is WONDERFUL. He’s got wonderful bedside manner you can tell he really cares about what he is doing – its not just a job. I’ve gotten more relief from acupuncture than I ever realized I would or could. I also spoke to him about herbs for my thyroid condition and the formula he gave me has made me feel so much better. I would Highly recommend Chris.
Well Worth Your Time
Chris is amazing! I was nervous about getting acupuncture for the first time and he was so friendly and caring, he quickly alleviated my fears. He is a great listener and takes the time to explain everything he’s doing and answer my many questions. HIs gentle, skillful approach and calm demeanor always settle my anxiety. I see Chris for his seasonal treatments and even look forward to the Chinese herbs he recommends for me with each visit. Everything he does (acupuncture, cupping, moxi, or herbs) always makes me feel better and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
So much more than expected
I can’t recommend Chris highly enough. After a few treatments for shoulder pain I discovered that I was feeling a whole lot better overall as well. A lot of the things I had associated with ageing like morning aches and stiffness were gone. Digestion, sleep, energy levels and focus were also greatly improved. I feel 40 again. Am now on a quarterly, seasonal schedule just to keep things in check and feel so much better than I did a year ago. I’ve recommended Chris to several friends who have also had terrific results. Five stars, definitely exceeded my expectations.
