You have found a healer.... – Let me begin by stating that I am not related to Christopher Hudson as this will read like something his mother would write. He is first a very human being, gentle and sincere. Add to that his skills in asking the right questions and his knowledge about what to do to help you and you have the perfect healer. Imagine, someone who listens to you so well that you are actually heard, not dismissed; someone who translates that awareness of you and your needs into the ancient application of needles on points to balance and energize your body; someone who then takes the time to advise you of ways that you can work to improve and keep the benefits received.
Well, you do not have to imagine it. Unless you are exceptionally ill - wait, I was going to say perhaps, in that case, you could not be helped, but then I just rememberd that I am exceptionally ill - the purple tongue lady he calls me, a sign that I am seriously blocked due to multiple chemical exposures. He has restored my energy, removed my edema and given me great hope for the future results.
Since I know that if he thought you needed medical (that is allopathic) help, he would send you immediately to a physician, I feel confident in advising you to see this wonderful, skillful, gentle acupuncturist (someone please come up with a better term) as soon as possible.
Natural Healer With Tender Touch – Christopher Hudson is a wonderful practitioner of this ancient art. I went in with neck pain and loss of energy, and over the course of several visits I have seen terrific improvement in my energy levels and increased mobility in my neck! His holistic, whole being approach to health is refreshing and necessary in today's health arena. I highly recommend acupunture as an alternative treatment and certainly recommend Mr. Hudson as a caring and interested healer skilled in this ancient art form. He takes the time to listen and make you feel comfortable, as well as NEVER causing pain of any type in application. Give him a call today to be on your way to better health!
Need help with stress, pain, balance, and more? – I have been suffering with arthritis, fibromyalgia and other autoimmune-related pains for many years, In addition, I had been suffering from abnormal menstruation for at least 3 years including unbearable cramps and heavy clotting, I have always believed that a lot of my problems came from stress. I have been seeing multiple doctors for 20 years. I had also seen chiropractors and two other acupuncturists. I have seen Chris Hudson off and on for several years. And have tried to make it a habit to see him now on a regular basis. Chris is amazing. He has balanced me. I can walk in on any given day ready to scream and Chris calms me through acupuncture. He has reduced the level of pain that I had learned to accept as my life. As far as the menstrual problems, they disappeared after one visit. That was truly unbelieveable after having been tested for various types of cancer and everything else under the sun.
The reason I like Chris more than the prior acupuncturists is the amount of time he shares and concern he shows. He is a good listener. He takes the time on every visit to ask how I am doing generally and about medical changes. He listens to what I beleive is happening with my body as opposed to simply categorizing me.
If you are a first-timer - there is nothing to fear! Needles are painless. The experience is completely relaxing. And Chris can help. Just remember, if it took you years to get to the state you are in, your pain is not going to disappear overnight. Good Luck!
Sorry I didn't try this sooner – I have cronic pain throughout my body from fibroymalgia and tmj. Dr. Chris Hudson has helped me tremendously. I have hardly any pain in my jaw anymore, which was my biggest problem. I didn't expect acupuncture would be able to treat my anxiety. I have felt more relaxed now, than I have in the past 7 years. I'm sorry I didn't try this sooner for my anxiety. I am much more relaxed and able to handle stressful situations. I have tried everything from therapists, yoga, chiropractic care, and medicines and nothing has given me as much relief as acupuncture, especially from Dr. Hudson. I highly reccomend him. It may seem expensive sine most insurance does not cover this type of treatment, but it is well worth it. I haven't felt this good in years! Thank you so much Chris!
Fully restored and ready to run again! – I cannot sing enough praises for Chris and the work he has done for me! I injured my hip last Friday so severely that I feared I might not be able to complete training for the series of triathlons I am completing this summer. Based on the previous sucess I have had seeing Chris for other sports related injuries he was first on my list to call, I was hopeful but had no idea that two days after the treatment I would be pain free!
Chris, as usual, offered an incredibly thorough treatment, including points for my allergies and and additional points for my lower back, which contributes significantly to the health of my hips. He was so accomodating in this crisis and I am eternally grateful that I can start to get back on my training schedule with only 5 days out of commision (3 of those days I was simply waiting for our appointment!). I never doubt the power and possibility of acupuncture! Thank you Chris!
Amazing, even for a skeptic like me – I woke up on a Sunday morning in so much pain that I could barely move. I had thrown out my back. My only option was to go to the ER, but I knew they would just give me some sort of pain killers to deal with the pain instead of treating why I had the pain. My sister recommended I try acupuncture, and I thought she was joking. After looking through some reviews online I called Chris Hudson, even though I knew it was a Sunday, to see if he thought he could help me. Not only did Chris explain the process to me (which I was nervous about), but he agreed to meet me at his office WITHIN AN HOUR AND ON HIS DAY OFF!!!!! I was so amazed at his willingness to help me, and after two treatments my back feels better than it has in as long as I can remember. At first I was skeptic and did not believe that a procedure such as acupuncture could help me, but now that I feel so much relief I know that not only is aupuncture a phenomenal form of treatment, but that Chris Hudson is amazing at what he does. I would reccomend him to anyone I know, or to ANYONE who is seeking treatment for pain they thought may never be eliminated.
Best Acupuncturist – I went to see Chris Hudson for mood swings and irritability associated with PMS. I've suffered with those symptoms for quite some time and have tried various forms of alternative medicine, including hands-on -healing and flower essences, none of which were effective. After several treatments with Chris, my symptoms subsided. Now, I go monthly for treatments and have continued to be symptom free. I recommend Chris to anyone. I can't thank him enough.
Caring and professional acupuncture – Rittenhouse Acupuncture, is very knowledgeable and caring. During every visit, I am asked how the last treatment affected me and how I are currently feeling, and treatment is adjusted accordingly. Chris Hudson, acupuncturist, genuinely cares that his treatments are benefiting your condition. Since I started seeing him about 8 months ago, my symptoms have drastically reduced, and he is honestly excited about that. I wouldn't go to another acupuncturist.
the best acupuncturist in Philadelphia – and if he moved to Seattle, he'd be the best acupuncturist there and i'd be racking up frequent flyer miles. i've been seeing Chris for acupuncture for just under 13 years and he has helped me through many health issues in this time. Chris always takes the time to listen to how you are doing and then asking the follow up questions he needs to so that he can determine the proper points for the issues at hand. that's a fantastic quality in a healthcare professional because it so rare. the results from the treatments have been very positive. he's helped me overcome acute issues and greatly improved my health on chronic ones as well. also, Chris treats your whole person: physical, emotional/mental, and spiritual. i can't say enough good things. i believe in him and highly, highly, highly recommend them.
