Acupuncture & Whole Health Success Stories

Effective Preventive Approach

Susan Goldstone was one of the first wholistic practitioners to grace Winston Salem in 1993. I have maintained my health with her expert health care services since she came here. I have had very little Western Medical intervention during this time. Oriental Medicine is a wonderful preventive medicine and Susan is an expert in her field. It is obvious she loves what she does. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!

Surgery Prevention for Pain

Susan Goldstone was referred to me by a friend who had amazing results with pain that was caused by her workout. So as a last result, before my scheduled surgery, I had a treatment with Susan. Well, 4 weeks later and guess what? No surgery! I am back to running and my yoga classes-pain free. I see Susan once a month for a tune up; acupuncture helps me stay balanced in this stressful world.

Surgery Prevention for Fibroids Treated with Oriental Medicine

I first saw Susan when my Ob/Gyn wanted to do invasive surgery for fibroids that were causing chaos in my life’s routine and pain. My mom suggested I find an acupuncturist instead, before opting for surgery. I did my research and found Susan. Our first meeting was great. She was easy to talk with and had worked on so many issues that in Western medicine are solved with surgery. We began weekly sessions and I chose to stay with her because not only were my symptoms improving but as a whole acupuncture made me feel wonderful. About 4 months later I had a scheduled appt with a new Ob/Gyn at Wake. She did an ultrasound, and the fibroids were GONE! I was astounded and happy! I still see Susan on and off years now for different issues from stress, to headaches, knee pain. I was never a non believer in combining Eastern practices with Western medicine, but now I’d never do it any other way! Susan is easy to talk to, very knowledgeable in all kinds of alternative healing, and it works! I’m so glad I found her and still work with her. She “saved” me from unnecessary surgery, but is also very educated about combining Eastern and Western healing. I knew and know I’m getting great care.

Frozen Shoulder, Nerve Problems in Arm & Hand when other Modalities were Ineffective

“Susan’s knowledge, understanding and ability to heal using Acupuncture and Sound Healing has helped me with a frozen shoulder and nerve problems in my arms and hands after many other modalities were ineffective. Susan is able to find the most minute area of the body and painlessly insert a needle that has led, over a short period of time, to a gentle and successful outcome. She is clear, precise and very aware of what the body needs, whether it be Acupuncture, Sound Healing or both. I travel 1 ½ hours to Winston-Salem to see her because her healing approach has been so effective. I give Susan my highest recommendation.”

Aging Jock Gets Relief

I have visited Susan for acupuncture many times over the years, and for a variety of issues. The issues included: tension under my scapular, a threatened tear of my Achilles tendon, and overuse injuries from too much time spent on a Stairmaster machine. I have found acupuncture to be very gentle medicine — treatments are relaxing and (at least for me) the needles rarely hurt and always heal. I have been astounded how effective acupuncture is for soft tissue injuries, when all western medicine offered was a shrug and a bottle of ibuprofen. Susan is gentle, bright, interesting and has a wry sense of humor. I recommend her highly and without hesitation.

Insomnia Treated with Oriental & Functional Medicine

I am 73 years old and I came to Susan because I had very bad insomnia. I was lucky if I slept 3 hours a night. I was getting up 3-4 times a night to go to the bathroom. I was also over weight. Within a month of receiving acupuncture, herbs and changing my diet I was sleeping 7-8 hours through the night. I have lost 20 pounds and feel like a new person. She also relieved my neck pain from a surgery I had years ago.

Migraines relieved by CranioSacral Therapy

I received CranioSacral Therapy from Susan. After 2 treatments my migraines were gone. She also gave me some helpful suggestions on how to work with my stress.


Migraines Relieved by Acupuncture

When I walked in Susan’s office, I was blinded by a severe migraine. After the treatment, I went home and went to bed. When I got up the migraine was gone. I continued treatment to balance my Qi. Little did I know that it would balance my life as well. Thank you Susan!!!


TMJ Relieved by Acupuncture

The TMJ pain was so intense. I couldn’t eat, talking was painful, my mouth would barely open. After 1 treatment, the pain eased up and I could open my mouth 25% more. After 4 treatments, the pain was 80%. After the 10th treatment, the pain was gone. Susan counseled me on how stress can intensify pain in a vulnerable area. Now when I begin to feel my jaw, I call Susan immediately and I also look at my stress level.
