Testimonials

Nearly five years ago, I turned to acupuncture with the hope that it would be more successful than western medicine injections and treatments I had tried for dealing with my back and hip pain. In simplest terms, within months I got my life back. However, last summer my acupuncturist closed her practice to return to school. Happily, within weeks I found Chris Lehmann on Google. I came to him with high expectations and he has not disappointed. He is knowledgeable, professional and effective. I particularly like his patient and understandable explanations of what he is doing. I also like his availability; in my experience many acupuncturists practice only part-time and scheduling convenient appointments is often not easy. Although my arthritis will require ongoing treatment, I get relief that I haven’t found in any other way. In addition, Chris has treated me for other issues with results in a single session. I am an enthusiastic fan of acupuncture/herbal medicine in general and Chris Lehmann in particular.Chuck G.

I’ve been seeing Chris for close to a year. He has helped me very much with stress. Then I fractured my knee! Since then he has done wonders for my pain and swelling. I always feel great after one of his treatments. Chris is warm, friendly and very easy to talk to. He does a fantastic job explaining the treatment and provides a very caring, relaxed atmosphere. Chris also gives great advice that works. I am so glad I found him. Also Eastern Sun Acupuncture is conveniently located with good parking (this is great if you’re on crutches!)Diane

I’ve been going to Eastern Sun Acupuncture for about 2 months now and absolutely love it! I started going because I was having trouble sleeping and its definitely working – I fell asleep during my acupuncture session last night because I was so relaxed! Chris is fantastic and knowledgeable and and is always willing to explain what he’s doing which is especially great for people new to acupuncture such as myself. I am now a true believer in the healing power of acupuncture and would recommend Eastern Sun Acupuncture to anyone.Helen

I was referred here by a friend of a friend. I have several medical issues and am at wit’s end with medical doctors! It was so refreshing to have someone treat me like an whole person and really listen to what I have to say and what’s going on with me. I’ve had all kinds of injections, medications, x-rays, even surgery, yet none of my doctors have been able to help my pain. I’ve done 3 weeks so far of acupuncture and am already getting relief. The entire process is such a wonderful break from cold, sterile examinations rooms. This place is warm, welcoming and relaxing. I’ve been working with Chris and he’s been awesome. He’s very knowledgeable, but still personable – I don’t feel like “just another patient”, I feel like a real person. Very professional and safe. He’s also been doing some heat therapies in addition to the acupuncture and they feel amazing! A treatment that leaves me with pain relief and totally relaxed – it’s the best of both worlds!!Kerry G.

The most pleasant surprise I found with Chris was how relaxed I was during the treatment and how great I left feeling. I’ve had a fair number of acupuncture treatments in the past, but they seemed like I was just a little brass doll getting perfunctorily stuck. Chris was very present. You can sense the care and attention he brings to his practice. He did a great job answering my questions and leading me through the process. I really appreciated the straightforward manner he described the treatment. You know someone knows their stuff when they can translate it into common language, and that they care when they take the time to. But best of all, after one treatment my knee pain dissolved and I left feeling completely refreshed. If you have any nagging aches and pains, ask yourself when the last time a handful of pills from the pharmacy left you feeling refreshed. Then call Chris! Josh C.

Golf is one of my true passions.  It bothers me when I have to get up earlier than usual to get to work, but I somehow seem to bounce out of bed when an early tee time is the reason.  On one such early golf morning my back was quite sore, and I aggravated it even further after lifting my golf bag into the back of my SUV.  I’ve never missed a tee time for any reason, but the discomfort in my back was agonizing, and playing golf that day was the last thing on my mind.  Luckily for me Chris Lehmann, who knows my passion for golf, witnessed my suffering and asked if he could help.  I am an open minded person when it comes to the use of alternative medicine such as acupuncture, but I didn’t think there was anything that could be done short of a few days rest to relieve my pain.  Chris put me through a 10 to 15 minute acupuncture treatment – he examined my back and asked a few questions, after which knew exactly which parts of my body to target.  Although the pain did not magically disappear altogether, the short treatment substantially improved the mobility in my back and greatly reduced the inflammation.  Thanks to Chris I was able to make my tee time and get through my round of golf with limited discomfort, which was a much more pleasant alternative than lying on my couch for the remainder of the weekend and only watching golf on the television.Steve Shorey

I broke the humurus bone in my left arm after a fall.  My husband had been treated with acupuncture by Christopher Lehmann and knew that he was a herbalist too.  I contacted Chris who sent me herbs to take for 10 days.  After I finished taking those he sent me a different type designed to continue to help the healing and which also assisted with the pain and discomfort I was experiencing.  The herbs eliminated the need to take the narcotic pain medication prescribed by the orthopedist.   When I saw my orthopedic doctor after 4 1/2 weeks, he was surprised that the bone had healed because he said it usually took 6 weeks. I can only attribute it to the herbs I took during the healing period.  Chris was attentive and compassionate and the herbs he designed did the rest of the job.  Thanks, Chris. - I.N.

Chris Lehmann treated me for recurring pain in my right wrist.  My family doctor referred me to a wrist specialist who diagnosed arthritis in several places.  He recommended a Cortisone shot for the pain but admitted it would only treat the symptom for several months.  I had heard that acupuncture was shown to be effective at treating causes as well as symptoms.  I had heard about Chris through my family.  I contacted him; and set up a session.  I was a little apprehensive at first, but quickly was put at ease by Chris’s apparent knowledge, professional manner, and caring attitude.  Before starting, Chris spent quality time talking to me about my problem and pertinent medical history.  No ten minutes and gone like my primary care physician. When treatment started the needle insertion was amazingly painless.  After one single treatment my wrist pain has disappeared for good.  This is pain that had been reoccurring more frequently over the past year.  Acupuncture is amazing, and I can say Chris is a very skilled practitioner. – P.M.

I went to Chris Lehmann for acupuncture treatment of a painful back.  My back was so bad, I had intense pain whenever I tried to bend over or whenever I was less then perfectly upright.  I was constantly uncomfortable. After gathering information on my medical history and condition, Chris began treatment.  Even after one treatment, I could move with much, much less pain, plus I felt very calm during and after the treatment.  I returned to Chris for several follow-up treatments to accelerate healing.  Each treatment further reduced my back ache.  I found Chris to be very professional, caring and skilled and would recommend him to anyone seeking acupuncture. - L.L.

I had Chris Lehmann as an acupuncturist at the NESA.  From the first appointment, he was very thorough with the intake and reserved.  His demeanor was always polite and rather calming which helped me relax during appointments.  I was very pleased with the care I received from him and appreciated his understanding of my various symptoms.  It helped me in my healing. – C.D.

The week before my wedding, I was as sick as I had ever been.  My head was severely congested, I was completely exhausted, and I couldn’t go 15 minutes without having a horrible coughing attack.  At the rehearsal, I started to think that I would not be able to enjoy the most important day of my life.  Chris offered me a session of acupuncture.  I had never tried it before and was a bit skeptical, but I had been to a doctor and tried prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines and NOTHING had helped.  After a 1-hour session, my head felt less congested, my cough subsided, and I felt more energized than I had all week.  Wedding day went off without a hitch – I was able to eat, drink, and dance with all of my guests and had a FANTASTIC time!!!  I am so grateful to Chris for his gift of health. – Alex M.
