Patient Testimonials

“Derek is a wonderful healer with a great depth of knowledge. He has helped me get rid of my allergies, and fight off colds so I can keep working. Most recently his treatments on my back have helped me recover from a severe car accident. Receiving weekly treatments got me back to pre-accident status in only six months!  I feel great!  I recommend Derek to all my friends and clients!”

“I have had headaches since 8th grade, something that most doctors would tell me ‘was all in my head’, and were unable to offer any real help.  After just a few sessions with Derek, I could see a noticeable decrease in the pain and fatigue that I have felt for most of my life.  It’s amazing to feel this way after so long… Thanks Derek!”

“I was not a believer in acupuncture and hesitant to give it a try because I hate needles! Derek made the entire process comfortable, he asked lots of questions, took notes, and I NEVER have seen a needle in his office.

My lower back pain was gone within just a few sessions. Amazing results after years of pain and being told by another doctor that I would just have to live with chronic pain and manage it with drugs. I give Derek my highest recommendation!”

  • “I have chronic pain in my upper back, and decided to try something new. I was previously hesitant, since I wasn’t really sure about acupuncture. After a little bit of research, I decided to give it a shot.

    All I can say is, wow. What an incredible treatment. The “needle” thing only took a second to get past, once I realized that he had put several in without me even feeling the penetration.

    I put “needle” in quotes, because they are so small, and not what I would typically associate with the idea of a needle in a doctor’s office.

    Overall, it was an incredibly rejuvenating experience, and left me feeling renewed and painless. I look forward to future appointments, and will strongly recommend Derek Kirkham to everyone I come in contact with who has any issues with pain or stress.”
