I originally went to Dr. Mager when I sought relief for ongoing neck stiffness

with shoulder pain and lower back pain. I have required back surgery in 2008 and 2020 on my lumbar spine. I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis from my neck down my entire spine. I have experienced significant reduction with my neck and shoulder issues as well as with my lower back pain. I initially started with weekly treatments in the fall of 2017, but gradually to a maintenance schedule of a treatment every six weeks at this time. I am very pleased with the results that Dr. Mager medical acupuncture treatments have provided for my pain management. The reduction in my pain level has made a major improvement in the quality of my life.

I have been a believer in acupuncture for several years

Before acupuncture I had surgery, most treatments for chronic low back pain, physical/water therapy and various medications, etc… with little or no success. According to surgeons my only option is a spinal fusion. This is why I chose to try an alternative form of medicine. I decided to see Dr. Mager because of her education, her practice is directed toward acupuncture, her training and knowledge and where she received her training. I have responded very well to the acupuncture treatments reducing my reliance on highly addictive analgesic medications and other medications. The effectiveness of acupuncture reducing my pain, radiating pain, from lower back into legs and reducing and / or eliminating numbness in low back, lower extremities and feet has been benificial in improving my overall well-being. I often refer Dr.Mager and acupuncture to others in need of pain relief.

I had pain in my arm for months and after seeing other doctors I decided to see Dr. Mager

After a few treatments my arm was healed and the pain never came back. I have been treated for other problems. My husband had a growth between his fingers and a doctor wanted to operate. After treatment with Dr. Mager his lump disappeared. He had treatment for Tinnitus and it was successful. Dr. Mager is very thorough, patient, attentive and skillful. We know that we can talk to her with any health care concerns.

Dr. Darlene Mager is a force for healing others and has been such a blessing in my life.

I found her almost 15 years ago and have long considered her work a treasure in my life. If you have given up hope and don’t know where to turn, I suggest you call and make an appointment. From a life changing treatment to a monthly tune-up, I can’t praise her enough. This amazing Dr. has changed my life, time and time again. She, and Robin have been such a blessing in my journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A few weeks ago, I was determined to find some relief for the pain

I was having in my feet, due to having flat feet and multiple surgeries.  My job requires me to be on my feet 8 to 14 hours a day. When I first decided to make an appointment with Darlene Mager D.O., it was with great hesitation.  I was willing to try anything to ease the pain I was having, so I decided to give acupuncture a try for a few sessions.  Well, I’ve been going for about five sessions now and I cannot believe the improvement in my feet and also in my legs. In my third session I noticed a considerable improvement, and I now have many more days without being in constant pain. The office has a very relaxing atmosphere, and Robin, the receptionist, is very pleasant yet professional.  The doctor makes you feel very comfortable as she explains each step in the process.  I am so glad that I have decided to try acupuncture and highly recommend Dr. Darlene Mager.
