what patients say
I initially sought acupuncture treatment with Mitch for neck pain and numbness in my face after a car accident. After I felt better physically, I continued my care because I realized how much Mitch's treatments helped me to heal emotionally as well. The acupuncture along with Chinese herbs have helped me to move and clear out negative emotions that have been locked and repressed for many years. The treatments also totally de-stress and re-ground me.
Mitch is very knowledgeable in the field of acupuncture and Chinese herbs, but he is also very intuitive to the needs of his patients. This is something not taught in schools, but is a gift. He is committed to helping people improve their health physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
I also decided to bring my son for help with some chronic aches and pains and to help with focus at school. Mitch is excellent with kids! My son, MM, looks forward to his treatments every week. With acupuncture and Chinese herbs he too has experienced many positive results.
The treatments made my leg pains and stomach aches go away. They also help relax my whole body. I have more energy and I also get up and feel more awake in the mornings... I'm able to focus better at school now.

I am a 54 year old woman who has recently experienced major abdominal surgery and was subsequently diagnosed with lymphoma. During the course of my illness and surgery, I became increasingly aware of a high level of anxiety. Along with this, I also struggled with ongoing headaches and sleeplessness. On the advice of a colleague at work, I made an appointment with Dr. Wegmann to seek acupuncture treatment in order to relieve these symptoms.
I have been seeing Dr. Wegmann once a week for approximately three months. During these sessions I become increasingly relaxed, calm and grounded. My headaches have been eliminated, my ability to sleep restfully has increased and my anxiety has become more manageable. In addition to these benefits, my digestive processes are enhanced and I have noticed an increase in my energy levels to perform my daily activities. Meditation has become an integral part of my therapy sessions and Dr. Wegmann coaches and encourages me to continue this practice between appointments.
I have recommended acupuncture to family members and friends as aid in relieving life stressors and to enhance their healthy lifestyles. I really enjoy my treatments and look forward to the benefits I receive.

I first came for acupuncture with Mitch during a transitional time in my life. I was experiencing heart palpitations and extreme anxiety during a long and difficult breakup. My heart palpitations were diminished with one visit and went away completely after three visits. The treatments are a wonderful opportunity to relax. Acupuncture works very well for me. In addition to the palpitations and anxiety problem, my chronic constipation and digestion issues have all but been eliminated in the last six months.
Acupuncture always helps me to feel more alive when I'm depressed and more centered when I'm anxious. Treatments with Mitch help me achieve a state of balance that I really crave. I get stretched and pulled in my inner and outer life. Acupuncture provides me with a direct experience of equilibrium. I value this experience very much. Thank you.
I came to see Mitch because I had recurring pain in my shoulder and lower back. The overall experience was excellent, much better than expected. It was so relaxing and comfortable and my shoulder and back pain are much less now. I brought my 14 year-old son for treatment too because he was experiencing severe knee pain from Osgood-Schlatter syndrome. The acupuncture was very effective for him as well.
Mitch's care is unique. He is calm, soft spoken and thorough so you feel in good hands. I would definitely recommend Mitch because he makes the treatment feel like a treat and because we saw great improvement in our conditions. To be able to come for an effective treatment for pain and actually fall asleep during treatment shows we are in good care.

I had neck surgery recently and the subsequent recovery was long and painful. After 4 weeks of frustration from the minimal pain relief I was getting from using the maximum daily allowed medication, my wife suggested that I should try acupuncture. I have never had acupuncture before and knew very little about it; however I was at the point where I was willing to try anything, so my wife sent me to Dr. Mitch.
When I visited Mitch I immediately liked him and his soft spoken and caring yet professional approach to dealing with my situation. I was able to relax during the session and felt immediate relief. I think I actually fell asleep during the first treatment, and looked forward to each visit afterwards. My recovery was speeding up and in a short while I felt I had turned a corner on my recovery. Mitch said the treatment from that point should be on an "as needed basis." I appreciated the not so pushy approach.
This was my first experience with acupuncture and it was a positive one. It was positive in that it worked but also because of Mitch. He was genuinely concerned about me and my situation. Thank you Mitch.
Dr. Mitch has been helping me navigate my way through a seemingly endless menopause, and the many symptoms — including insomnia, acne, memory problems — too many to mention. Since I started seeing him for this over a year ago, he has used his skills with acupuncture, his knowledge of herbs, along with advice on diet and exercise to reduce and almost eliminate those problems which were impacting my life in a negative way. With help from Dr. Mitch, I sleep better, I feel better and my mind is more clear. I would refer Dr. Mitch to any woman who could use help during these hormonally charged years.
I initially came for acupuncture to help me conceive. I am now 7 months along and I truly believe I would not be pregnant right now without the assistance of acupuncture. Even though it has been a difficult pregnancy, the regular acupuncture helps me relax and feel like I can keep going. I always leave my appointments feeling better than when I go in.
Overall, my experience with acupuncture has been very positive. Originally, I was not convinced that acupuncture was for me, but I was converted after my first session. Right from my first appointment Mitch made me feel comfortable with the whole process. He is very understanding and insightful and I feel very confident in his care.
I came to see Mitch for my carpal tunnel syndrome. I was really afraid to go at first because I don't like needles, but Mitch assured me it would be fine. I closed my eyes as he placed the needles. He asked for constant feedback and helped me feel in control so I could handle the first treatment.
I used to wake up in the middle of a dead sleep with my hand numb and tingly and the pain was almost unbearable. Now, the ability to sleep through the entire night is a blessed relief. I love the mobility I have after treatment as well as the relaxation I feel. I have to admit it has been one of the best things I could have ever done to help aid the carpal tunnel and to avoid having surgery anytime soon.

I had been sick for about four straight months, starting with a cold, then the flu and then bronchitis and finally pneumonia. Amongst all this was severe muscle pain. All of these ailments contributed to one sleepless night after another, which led to low self esteem and a complete lack of energy. Also, I was preparing to quit smoking after 35 years and could use all the help I could get.
This is when I started seeing Mitch for acupuncture. The treatments were so relaxing, and afterward I was able to go home, relax, and have a good night's sleep, knowing that the benefits didn't stop at the end of the treatment. I believe these treatments greatly assisted with my overall health improving as well as strengthening my immune system. And, I am proud to say that I am now 8 months smoke-free and I believe the treatments played a role in this as well. My overall experience was positive, and I always felt relaxed and secure. Mitch is very professional and I really felt that he took a personal and sincere interest in my well-being. He is a contributing wellness partner and I would absolutely recommend his treatment for others.
I was scheduled to have nasal surgery and wanted to minimize the pain and drug side effects as well as speed my recovery. My wife told me acupuncture could help out. Mitch did his best to alleviate my nervousness of having needles stuck in my face and other areas of my body. The treatments were pleasant and I enjoyed being able to relax. I had acupuncture leading up to the surgery and it helped some breathing and snoring issues I have had for a while. And after the surgery there was hardly any pain or after effects during my recovery. I believe acupuncture had a lot to do with that. I would definitely recommend treatment with Mitch.
I wanted to thank you for your care when you treated me for 2 problems - first a digestive problem, and then trouble with my legs which were aching and felt as though they wouldn't support me. I saw you 4 times before leaving for the winter and both problems were solved. It is hard to believe that acupuncture could be such a gentle and pleasurable treatment and could result in such a fast and complete recovery. You are a treasure! Thank you so much.
Five years ago I had a car accident while pregnant. Due to the pregnancy, I could not undergo treatment for pain. When I met Mitch a year ago, I had been suffering from chronic pain for 4 years and had seen many practitioners in many modalities, including other acupuncturists, IMS, physiotherapists, massage therapists, cranial sacral specialists, prolotherapists and a range of other specialists.
I have made amazing progress with Mitch to help with my chronic pain and general state of health. A session with Mitch is healing and very relaxing. Mitch has a gift for "healing with loving kindness," and that, as Dr. Steven Aung believes, is the difference between Eastern and Western medicine.
