More testimonials from our patients.
There are many methods to treat with acupuncture. In the majority of patients Michel uses a distal point system (points found between the elbows and hands and between the knees and feet) to treat the problem - even it is back, neck pain, or headaches. Patients are often amazed that pain can be reduced or eliminated this way.
Hip Pain Better!
I first came to Redding Acupuncture Health Care in August 2010 for hip pain that I had been experiencing in both of my hips for about eight months. Previously, my medical
Doctor diagnosed me with Bilateral Bursitis. Following the diagnosis he had also prescribed two treatments of steroid
injections. Both times I was hospitalized for several days following the steroid injections treatments. I knew my body was not going to be able to tolerate another round of
these treatments. I looked for alternative care, trying to preserve my body's health. I received chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and so many Bayer back and
body pain relievers I made myself sick. I was unable to perform my normal daily activities such as walking, exercising, or squatting, and movements up and down caused
me excruciating pain. I was referred to Michel Czehatowski, L.Ac. for Acupuncture treatment.
During my first visit Michel explained to me what was wrong, why it was wrong, and how he was going to use acupuncture to treat my condition. I felt immediate relief
after my first visit. After my 5th visit I was back to all of my normal activities.
I highly recommend that anyone suffering from pain on any ailment come and visit Redding Acupuncture Health Care and
see what they can do for you. I have had great success and think it is very important to share my story with others who are needlessly suffering. I plan on continuing my
acupuncture treatments with Michel so I can maintain my health and active lifestyle to the fullest. Thank you

“...Acupuncture and World Unity...”
Artist-Sculpture Jeff Gluck has always been interested in Eastern Medicine. While working as a designer/builder in Arizona Jeff had many friends that were acupuncturists.
When a health problem came up several years ago he initially went to see acupuncturist and author, Misha Cohen, L.Ac., O.M.D. at her Chicken Soup Chinese Medicine Clinic in San Francisco.
Little did Jeff know at the time but Dr. Cohen and Michel Czehatowski, were former classmates, both having graduated
from the San Francisco College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine where they shared most of their classes together.
Because travel to San Francisco was difficult and he required regular treatments, Dr. Cohen referred Jeff to Michel Czehatowski. Michel has been treating Jeff for several years now and over time they have become friends and have common interests to talk about. When asked if he would recommend acupuncture, Jeff says he would recommend it and feels that people should also know
that acupuncture works well in conjunction with Western medicine.

Very Satisfied!! I came in for Acupuncture in November 2012 with severe arm pain. I couldn't move my arm due to the pain and was unable to reach behind my back or move my arm across the front of my body. I had previously had a cortisone shot that helped a little but I was still having
severe pain. A friend referred me to Michel at Redding Acupuncture Health Care.
On my initial visit I told Michel about my problem and he explained how acupuncture worked and how he would treat me. Michel was able to relieve my pain without putting the needles directly into my shoulder. He put them in my leg instead.
I had immediate improvement with the first treatment and when I returned two days later for my second appointment I was feeling much better! I had a total of five Acupuncture treatments after which Michel released me from his care. I am very satisfied with my outcome and surely will see him again if my pain returns.
