Below are a sampling of testimonies from our patients who have had success with acupuncture for various problems.  You can also check out our facebook page for many more reviews!  

BETTY: My spouse and I have been coming to Crossroads acupuncture for about a year. We came to see Ryan with a bit of skepticism the first time. I am here to tell you after the first visit I felt great. Ryan is very knowledgeable in exactly where to place the pins to give you the utmost comfort when you leave the office. My spouse was so Impressed by how great I. felt the first visit on our second visit he decided to let Ryan work on him. Ryan did a great job on my spouse as well. We are so impressed by Rayn’s work we are still coming to see him. He does such a great job on us that we drive 400 miles round trip to see him. 

DOROTHY: I have been dealing with an “ice pick” kind of stabbing pain in my lower back/upper buttocks area for years now. I finally decided to try out acupuncture, since the combination of “sportsman” dose pain relievers, and arthritis pills which I was prescribed by local doctors were not cutting it…even when I enhanced them in the evening with several glasses of wine! In two weeks time, Dr. Ryan has helped me to the point that I am off the meds and down to one glass of wine with dinner (recommended by my primary care for good heart health of course).

In the six sessions I have attended, not only has Dr. Ryan helped me considerably with this lower back problem, but he has also aided in the flexibility of my neck (which is ALWAYS stiff and knotted from scar tissue from cervical decompression surgery back in 1992).  Crossroads Acupuncture helped to remove the mystique that always surrounded this acupunture process for me.  IT REALLY WORKS!!! The therapy is painless, and you get to take a nap in the middle of the afternoon whithout guilt or shame. The results for me personally have been nothing short of AWESOME! 

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ryan and Laura (his front office person who handles appointments and billing). Their pricing is more than reasonable, and you can tell that both Dr. Ryan and Laura actually care about their patients and their improved health and are definitely not motivated by greed.  The surroundings are clean, comfortable and the office is located in a very accessible area. If you are in pain, you owe it to yourself to give Crossroads Acupuncture a try. It may change your life in terms of no pain or less pain, more mobility, and more flexibility. What have you got to lose?  Can you tell I am one of their biggest fans?! 

ALISHA: Crossroads Acupuncture is a wonderful place to receive acupuncture treatment. Ryan is caring and attentive to his clients’ individual needs. The environment is welcoming and soothing, and the price is affordable (they accept insurance too!). Every time I get treated I leave feeling refreshed and renewed. My stress levels were high when I started treatment. Ryan was always understanding and identified ways to alleviate stress and balance my system. As treatment progressed, I continued to feel better and my ability to manage stress improved. You will not regret being treated here, give Crossroads a try!

JESUS:  I have great pain in my knee due to a worn out meniscus. The pain is 24/7.  Since starting my treatment at Crossroads the pain has diminished a lot, making my daily walking easier to handle with less pain, if any! 

FRED: Where traditional medicine has failed me drastically, Crossroads has given me major relief from neuropathy, spasms, pain, skin problems, anxiety, depression and chronic neck and back pain. Along with all the benefits, the environment and professionalism of the staff highly exceeds anything I have ever experienced in a medical facility, especially the V.A. I highly recommend even the mildest of treatments for veterans! We need this to go “viral” within the veteran’s community! Thank you, I look forward to many years of hiking thanks to you!

BOB:   I had severe prostatitis, and I was hardly functional. The pain progressed during the day, and I would generally take a sleeping pill at about 7:00 PM simply because I could not stand it anymore. I came to Ryan’s acupuncture in a lot of pain and full of skepticism. Fortunately, belief in the process is not required. After about three weeks, I was still in pain, but I had a lot more energy. Over the course of the next several weeks, the pain gradually receded, and I got back to living my life as usual.”

ROBERT:  “I came to Crossroads Community Acupuncture in the hope of helping a headache I had suffered with since 1989 and problems with my back since 1977. I had tried all the regular ways to get pain relief but they all came up short.  Now I am 6-7 weeks into treatment at 

las cruces acupunctureCrossroads and I can honestly say that most of my days now are pain free, and if I do develop pain again I know that it can be treated by Ryan. One of the main benefits that I experience, is the feeling of total relaxation and even euphoria. I feel that is important in our stressful lives that we all live.  I would highly recommend Crossroads Acupuncture to anyone for any purpose, whether it is for pain relief or relief from stress.”

GLORIA: I came to Crossroads Acupuncture about 2 months ago on the advice of a relative who is also being treated there.  In the past I have tried various forms of treatment, to no avail.  I have been seeing Ryan for treatment twice a week now and my vertigo and Meneire’s is 90% better.  He has also treated me for neck pain and it too is much better. 

CAT:  “My name is Cat and I suffer from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and depression. For the past three and a half months I have been receiving acupuncture treatments at least once a week. I have found that the treatments help with my pain management, relieve my stress levels, and promote a general sense of well-being. It helps me to cope with the day-to-day physical and mental tensions that life throws at us.

RON: “I received my initial acupressure massage training in Canada, and my advanced training during my 13 years in East Asia. I have been a regular patient of Dr. Bemis since this summer for two specific ailments. I have found him to be precise and solid in his needle insertion. His systematic patient preparation process complements his caring manner to give his patients a sense of comfort and relaxation. I appreciate Dr. Bemis‘s interest in knowing my reaction to each treatment, which allows him to use a variety of needle placements to deal with each ailment. The simple, no-nonsense atmosphere of the clinic allows the patient to relax and focus on the body’s reaction to treatment with few distractions.”

CAROLINE:  “I first came to Crossroads Acupuncture for grief and a vocal tremor which is called essential tremor.  I had read about scalp acupuncture helping with the vocal tremor and wanted to try it to see if my voice would improve.  I was told by many of my friends there was a difference in their ability to understand me after the treatments and that was my primary goal.  I believe it is quite effective and has no side effects like many of the prescription drugs I have taken over the past few years.  The second issue I had was that my husband who I dearly loved died last winter and I was grieving terribly.  I found the ear acupuncture for grief to be quite helpful.  

Had I gone to a regular acupuncturist I could not afford to go more than once every 5 to 6 weeks.  With Ryan I can afford to go at least once a week.  I like the calmness of the setting and I like being a part of the treatment and discussing what my needs are from week to week.  I appreciate how friendly and approachable Ryan is as a treatment provider.”

    I believe Crossroads Acupuncture has been a great asset for Las Cruces and the entire border region. Receiving acupuncture from licensed personnel (Ryan & Janet) has many benefits with no harmful side affects. It helps people with pain issues, either temporary or chronic, and it is a great way to relax and let the endorphins that are produced reduce personal stress level – I always leave feeling better than when I came in. It is a natural high without the risk associated with taking a drug. And, because the treatment is in a community setting where several people can be treated at the same time, the cost is reasonable for everyone – less than a normal co-pay at a Doctor’s office. Also, Crossroads has initiated a border project to introduce the benefits of acupuncture to people in Juarez as they deal with all of their challenges. Crossroads has had several fund raisers to benefit the border project and the necessary training that is associated with it. Crossroads Community Acupuncture is the only clinic of its kind in the entire Las Cruces – El Paso area, and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
