Acupuncture is unique in the sense it helps to identify health issues in the early stages of development. By taking preventative measures early on, acupuncture may help sustain your healthy lifestyle for many years to come.
It is often easier to address health issues before they become chronic and deeply ingrained in your body.
Years of study have proven the benefits of acupuncture as supportive care for many conditions including chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, and women’s health including menopausal symptoms. Studies have even supported acupuncture as supportive care during cancer treatments.
Acupuncture encourages the body to activate its own healing mechanisms while alleviating potential side effects from medication.
Acupuncture is often tried after other therapies, medications, or surgery have failed to provide the relief one may be looking for. Acupuncture provides an effective, low-risk alternative treatment.
We focus on resolving symptoms and addressing the root cause of the pain or illness.
At Cary Acupuncture we offer a variety of healing services designed for each individual and their specific needs.
I came to see Debbie several times after an unexpected loss in my family when I was only a week postpartum. I was familiar with acupuncture and some other complementary therapies, but as a public health worker, I'm naturally a little skeptical. I had never heard of using acupuncture as a tool to move through the grieving process and had never actually had acupuncture done. Additionally, the shock of the loss had caused my postpartum bleeding to stop. It was better than I imagined. The appointments were very relaxing--most are placed on your arms and lower legs, so I never had to undress or anything. I couldn't really feel the needles, but I could feel a sort of movement. Call it energy or chi or something else, it was definitely there. Debbie has such a nice bedside manner and a strong knowledge of overall health and well-being. The office itself is lovely and well-designed and in a convenient location with good parking. As with any complementary therapy, I'd say it's worth trying if the potential benefits outweigh the risks--and they definitely do. After just a few appointments, I felt more capable of handling the grief and the postpartum effects had resolved. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to come back to see Debbie under more pleasant circumstances in the future!
I began going to Cary Acupuncture several years ago to help with hot flashes. Even though I'm needle phobic, I really didn't want to start hormone therapy. I figured if it didn't work no harm would be done. Not only was it very successful in diminishing the frequency and intensity of the flashes, I returned for treatment of other issues. I've used acupuncture and therapeutic massage for neck and shoulder soreness, for lower back pain and for stress and fatigue following the illnesses and deaths of my parents. Debbie is a sensitive, caring and very competent practitioner. I also I had a Chinese Face Reading done by Debbie--boy! was that on the mark!! We forget that our faces experience our lives and show the history on them--fascinating stuff!! I highly recommend Cary Acupuncture to anyone seeking health care from the point of view of regaining and maintaining a healthy balance of the whole being.
I've been experiencing severe neck/shoulder pain for over a year. I have tried regular massage, injections from my doctor, physical therapy, a therapeutic brace and lots of Advil. I couldn't get lasting relief. I've never had acupuncture but was desperate to try anything. A friend suggested Cary Acupuncture. They were able to get me in quickly and after only 1 visit, I experienced relief. After the 2nd visit, I couldn't believe the reduction in the chronic pain!! It's absolutely amazing how much better I feel. I'm finally able to enjoy life without the 24/7 pain in my neck. I would highly recommend Cary Acupuncture and I am SO grateful that I went and will continue to be a grateful patient!
I went to see Debbie as my very first acupuncture treatment. Had thought about it for years, and finally took the plunge (no pun intended). Debbie is absolutely wonderful, thorough, gentle, and within a couple of treatment, she helped me get my high blood pressure under control without remaining on medication, something I didn't think was possible. Her office is very clean, welcoming, and relaxing and I look forward to my regular acupuncture treatments now. I should also add that unlike many other service providers who encourage you to come as often as possible (probably revenue driven) she actually worked with me and suggested spacing out treatments as I improved, saving me both time and money.
I have been going to Debbie Goodwin ever since she opened her practice. She has always been warm and inviting and concerned about my well-being. My treatments have been beneficial and I continue to return when I need help with my mental well being, have sleeping troubles or other health needs when I prefer a more natural approach. Than you Debbie for the continued great service!
I find Debbie to be a highly experienced practitioner who is constantly striving to hone her skill sets, and learn new things that will help her patients. She has exposed me to so much more than just her talents in acupuncture, but also in herbology & Chinese Face Reading (this was fascinating!). Her services & knowledge go way beyond the basics of acupuncture, I'm certain you'll be pleased, I know that I am.
To say I wasn't a believer in alternative medicine would be an understatement. Heck, I am an entrepreneur that started a successful mobile massage business but never had a massage! But not getting any younger, I decided that it was time to start taking time for myself and overall wellness. At the constant urging of my partner, who is a very happy client of Cary Acupuncture, I decided to give it a try. All I can really say is that it was the best decision I ever made. While I wasn't going for any specific condition to start, just overall wellness and stress relief (did I mention I'm an entrepreneur - stress level off the chart!!), I immediately felt more calm and just 'better'. Now, Debbie is treating me for a thyroid condition I developed called Hashimoto's and an auto-immune disorder - both of which I would not be able to combat if it weren't for my consistent acupuncture treatments. I now faithfully come every 2 - 3 weeks for a treatment and it has made such a massive difference in my life! Thank you, Debbie!
I’ve been a patient at the Cary Acupuncture Clinic for two years and have experienced superb care and results. I’ve had a chronic condition for over 16 years with many complex symptoms. Debbie Goodwin has been flexible in my treatment plan and she has been able to identify and continually treat a whole host of my medical issues. Debbie has made a real difference in my quality of life. As a practitioner, Debbie is dedicated, a wonderful listener, totally focused on her patient’s healing and is an amazing acupuncturist. Debbie has proven to be extremely knowledgeable, and with her adaptive style, she has been able to treat my evolving symptoms. I’ve also thoroughly enjoyed a Chinese Face Reading session with Debbie where I learned fascinating, invaluable and extremely profound insights about my personality. The Cary Acupuncture Clinic is a very warm, welcoming and relaxing environment, and I really look forward to my appointments there. Without hesitation, I’d strongly recommend Debbie Goodwin and the Cary Acupuncture Clinic to any patients seeking a holistic treatment from an experienced, talented, and caring practitioner.
I feel extremely fortunate to have come to you for acupuncture treatments. Your treatments provided me with measurable improvements after just 3 sessions, and further improvements were achieved with each subsequent treatment!
Debbie is great to work with. Very patient and understanding of the pain and discomfort you are feeling.
Good News Alert! I have been pain free for the past 4 weeks and have resumed normal activities. I am back on the courts and the gym working out. Thank you very much for assisting me with my recovery!! Not only are you excellent at what you do, but you a professional and caring. I am glad are worlds crossed a few months ago.
I have been working with Cary Acupuncture Clinic for several months to treat back and sciatic nerve pain. Debbie has been great to work with and I have had great success. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an acupuncturist.
I've been using Cary acupuncture for several months and am hooked. I made my first appt. with Debbie because of pain in my shoulder and neck, after the first appt. I felt a difference, after the third appt I became a believer. I've been using Debbie for six months and am pain free with my shoulder. I will be calling Debbie very soon now that the holidays are upon me-acupuncture really makes me relax!
My time spent with Debbie at Cary Acupuncture Clinic was amazing. Not totally aware of what to expect when I entered the program but with the guidance of Debbie and her calming manner I was hooked. Thanks Debbie for your guidance.
I have had only positive and successful experiences with Cary Acupuncture Clinic. The professional facility is in a serene & comfortable setting. Debbie Goodwin is professional, kind and thorough with her services. I would not hesitate to recommend Debbie Goodwin & Cary Acupuncture Clinic to anyone in search of improving the quality of their life.
I have had a very pleasant experience with Cary Acupuncture Clinic over the last several years. It's a quite calming and relaxing atmosphere and Debbie is very professional, compassionate and caring. Whether I needed pain or stress relief, I have always left relaxed and centered.
You may be skeptical, believe me I understand – I was too!! All I can tell you is that I am a skeptic no longer! I watched while my Mother suffered from chronic back pain and migraine headaches for as many years. She tried it all – chiropractic treatment, cortisone shots, TENS units, narcotics and even very invasive back surgery – all with no lasting relief. Debbie Goodwin, with Cary Acupuncture Clinic, changed all that! She provided my Mom with pain relief that I had never witnessed in her before! About three (3) years ago, I suffered a back pain situation of my own. There was no relief to the terrible pain! If you have ever suffered this, you know what I mean! The pain is there - sitting, standing or lying down – it doesn’t matter! Having witnessed the benefit to my Mom, I placed a call to Cary Acupuncture Clinic make an appointment for myself. I was able to get an appointment that very day. I am not going to tell you that it was immediate cure with no more pain, but there was some immediate relief! Debbie asked me to allow her three (3) appointments, and I agreed. I will, without hesitation, tell you that after my second appointment on the following day I witnessed significant improvement in my previously debilitating back pain! After the third appointment, I was all in! Now, when I start to feel the first twinges of back pain I am on the phone! I can also tell you that Debbie’s treatments have helped me, throughout the years, with headaches, migraines, sleeplessness and occasional anxiety. But, don’t take my word for it, give it a chance for yourself! I never hesitate to recommend Debbie and Cary Acupuncture Clinic to anyone whose health & wellbeing I am concerned about!
I have been to Debbie for several acupuncture treatments. The acupuncture is not only relaxing but is helping my health situation. Debbie has a soothing demeanor about her that makes you feel at ease. I would highly recommend Debbie for anyone seeking help with a multitude of health concerns.
My cold was really bad when I came to the clinic. With my treatment yesterday, I slept well during the night. I immediately felt the pressure was off my sinuses when I left the office yesterday. This was money well spent. Thank you for the good care.
I greatly appreciated my appointments at Cary Acupuncture Clinic over the last six months while I was undergoing IVF treatments. Debbie's expertise, kindness, and calm demeanor were an invaluable source of support and well-being during a challenging time in my life. Acupuncture reduced my stress, improved my mood, made me a more mindful person, and helped me to get pregnant (at last!) after many years of unsuccessful fertility treatments. I have deep gratitude for Debbie; acupuncture sessions with her have made such a positive impact on my life!
I'm feeling so much better since the treatment last Friday. It has been amazing!! Your recommendations towards my diet have helped me out tremendously. Thank you!!
I have been going to the Cary Acupuncture Clinic for four years. Deb Goodwin is so knowledgeable about both eastern and western medicine and she competently treats so many ailments. Deb has treated me for severe anxiety for years and she also treats me occasionally for pain or other constitutional issues that arise. Deb is so personal and easy to talk to that it is easy to discuss any problem with her. Deb is both extremely approachable and extremely professional. I would recommend Cary Acupuncture Clinic to anyone who has tried acupuncture and is seeking a better experience or anyone who is seeking to try acupuncture for the first time. Cary acupuncture Clinic is a first rate acupuncture clinic!!
Debbie has been a tremendous help in treating my chronic lower back and hamstring pain. The acupuncture helped almost immediately and helped reduce the pain to a level where I could be more active and do additional exercises that reduced my pain. Her compassion and communication skills are outstanding. She really listened to me and my concerns!
I have been a patient at Cary Acupuncture Clinic for many years. Having discovered the benefits of acupuncture when I lived in St. Louis, I hoped I could find someone in Cary to assist me with my health goals. I have used acupuncture to assist with common colds, aches and sprains from running, and for overall preventative care. I consider myself so fortunate to find Debbie. From the first time I met her, I knew she was the professional, caring caretaker I wanted. Debbie takes the time to listen to my health concerns and I always leave her office feeling better. I never have a problem getting an appointment, the office is nicely decorated and a calming environment is created the minute you step inside the door. I highly recommend Cary Acupuncture.
I have been a patient of Debbie’s since she first started practicing. I have sought treatment for insomnia, fatigue, mental fog, and general malaise. Consistently, Debbie has been able to diagnose the source of all of these issues and to design and deliver highly effective, corrective treatment. As important, Debbie places a high priority on patient comfort; this is evidenced in everything from the design of her office to providing heat for my perpetually cold feet. Because I have referred others who have had the same wonderful experience as I, I know I am not an anomaly. Thank you, Debbie, for improving my life and those of my friends.
Debbie is the truly the best acupuncturist I have ever been to. Her work includes not only acupuncture but a number of different holistic healing practices such as energy work and crystals, as well as Chinese medicine. I recommend anyone who is interested in her fantastic practice.
I am a disabled Army Veteran and have been getting acupuncture care, with Debbie Goodwin at Cary Acupuncture. I suffer from chronic back pain, neuropathy, knee injury, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. My results have been nothing less than, "Life changing" I was on on many medications and opioids prescribed by the VA system. I slept most of my day away. I felt irritable, tired, in pain and of course very depressed. It took a few sessions and I started seeing results. The treatment for PTSD was so helpful. Slowly with my primary care Dr's help, we started to decrease the Pain medication. I started becoming more active with my family and enjoying time with our grandson. I felt like going for short walks and talking to the neighbors. It was amazing. I am on less than half the pain medicine I was on before My acupuncture care started. I feel like I have a better outlook on life. My wife who is also my caregiver has noticed the most change. She stated she feels like she has her husband back. Debbie Godwin is a very kind, caring, professional and very good at what she does. She's a great communicator and always greets you with a smile. Her clinic is calming and very beautiful decorated. I felt like I was in good hands the minute I walked through the door. I can with all confidence recommend Cary Acupuncture. You don't need to sit around hoping to feel better. Help is out there.
I have been a regular customer/patient/friend of the Cary Acupuncture Clinic for the past five years. The Taiwanese Company for which I worked paid for 30 acupuncture treatments a year. Many of my colleagues considered acupuncture a normal part of their health routine. However, I waited until I retired to “try” it myself. Debbie Goodwin had just opened her new clinic and my lower back was bothering me. I scheduled an appointment and was pleasantly surprised with my treatment. I now schedule a “tune-up” every quarter to keep my “engine” running smoothly. I would strongly recommend Debbie and her team at the Cary Acupuncture Clinic.
