I am a fourth year, competitive tennis player who has always been afflicted with tendinitis running deep into my forearm, elbow bone and numbness through my pinky finger. I've tried many different approaches/techniques to combat the impact of pain from playing year round. It also became apparent that other common daily life activities like driving and vacuuming also aggravated pain in my elbow/arm. It seemed no treatments or products ever lasted or kept this constant affliction fully away. The etiology of my tendonitis condition is not solely manifested from my tennis play but is how my body is built, structurally. In talking with other tennis players, it was recommended to try acupuncture with a provider equipped in treating 'tennis elbow,’ specifically.
I was connected with Ms. Georgia Carr through Whole Health in Lone Tree, CO. Georgia brought a constant, high level of knowledge and holistic care across all of our acupuncture sessions. After only several sessions, my results were far reaching as for the first time, I no longer had any numbness or tingling sensation running from my elbow to my pinky. Soon after this, my tenderness and pain was virtually gone. The results of acupuncture are transforming to the stress reduced, pain-free quality of my daily life on the courts and off.
In addition, Georgia was dynamic in providing insights to the reasons and ways my body was responding to my world. She also engaged me with nutritional approaches and herbal therapy in keeping my energy at a restored and steady balance. I am grateful for the direct care provided by Georgia and her practices within the healing traditions of Chinese Medicine.
I have been receiving acupuncture for almost 17 years. I have been treated by many acupuncturists with different techniques and styles. Whole Health Center has found the best acupuncturists! I have been treated by Beckie MCCloud and most recently, Georgia Carr.
Georgia is a great technician and really knows her Chinese herbs and formularies. Together we have had much success in treating respiratory issues, insomnia, allergies, and digestion. Whole Health Center is a professional yet warm and friendly environment.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my acupuncturists and the experience Whole Health Center provides. I am so blessed to have found them.

2013 was not a good year for me medically. I ended up in the emergency room with pneumonia in May. I was given antibiotics, fluids, and told that would cure me. I thought it had until October when I started developing a high fever, chest pain and a weird little dry cough that would come and go. It was a three week cycle...high fever and chest pain in week one that would not go away, a more moderate fever in week two that would come and go, and then by week three I was weak, but doing okay. The doctor thought I had a touch of pneumonia, so more antibiotics. Just when I was starting to feel better, the fever returned and the cycle repeated.
I had my doctor baffled. Because the cycle described above just kept recurring, he first sent me to an allergist/immunologist. That revealed nothing that would explain the high fever. However, this doctor did some blood work to see if there was anything revealing in that.
A few days later I went back to my regular doctor for routine blood work as part of my annual exam. When he compared that blood work to the results from the allergist/immunologist, he noted my C-Reactive Protein went off the charts in a matter of 5 days. So, the next specialist was a hematologist. Ten vials of blood later, they didn't see anything way out of the norm. My CRP had decreased some, so it was trending in the right direction.
Right after seeing this doctor, the fever cycle began again for the third time. So now I'm referred to an infectious disease doctor. He had no idea what was going on, could only think that maybe I had some form of tick fever and tested me for HIV even though I regularly give blood and they automatically test for that.
Frustrated, I said "enough!" A lady at work asked if I had ever considered acupuncture. That sparked something in me! While I didn't have any experience with acupuncture, I knew others that did and they had positive results.
Enter Georgia Carr! I told her my long sordid health story, and after a few visits things were much better!
Skeptics told me that I was near the end of the fever cycle anyway, and that acupuncture didn't really do anything. However, in February 2014, I started feeling that familiar pain in my lungs again. No fever and no cough as yet, but a lot of pain. I again went back to Georgia. After the first treatment, I felt the pain move from my left lung to the top of my chest. After the next treatment, the pain moved to the right side, and after the 3rd treatment the pain was gone. I went to a fourth treatment to make sure it was all gone. I didn't develop the fever which had always accompanied the chest pain. Success!
Long story short, I credit acupuncture, and specifically Georgia Carr, with helping me heal my lungs. I learned so much from Georgia about this process, and I am so impressed by it that it is now the first thing I think of when I'm not feeling well.

So far this business has more than exceeded my expectations. I went in a few weeks ago for a massage with Nancy for my chronic neck and shoulder pain. She was the best I have seen so far. She not only knew how to get the knots to release without torturing me, she also explained what was going on and showed me stretches to help with the issue. She then recommended that I try acupuncture but not in an overaggressive way.
I went back for my first acupuncture treatment – I will try anything to help with this neck issue – and I am amazed at how much better I feel already. I saw Joong and he first explained how it works and what I need to change with my diet and time (or lack of) I dedicate to working out.
I really like the fact that the professionals all take the time to explain how to prevent or lessen chronic pain as well as follow up calls to see how you are feeling after the appointments.
I highly recommend this place!

Hey Dr Lin, its Shoam Falcone, your patient in which you treated for bells palsy!
The month of March is always a special time for me to remind me of how grateful I am to have the ability to smile and have my face back to normal. Its hard to believe that 747 days have passed since I woke up that terrible morning to half my face being paralayzed, and just about 730 days since you started worked your magic on me at Whole Health.
I'm sorry this is getting to you so late, but I just wanted to say that I am so incredibly grateful for all that you did for me, and everyday I think about how lucky I am to have to have an angel like you that took my underneath your wing and healed me. In between the accupunture, diet advice, and the vitamins, you gave me all the tools to get my face back to normal and always had a smile on your face and made me feel good. I hope that one day I can find a way to express how thankful I am to you.
As you probably know the months in which I had bells palsy were one of the hardest of my life so far, but it was truly an experience that made me grow positively in so many ways, and has made me appreciate the little things in life so much more, like being able to smile my big, toothy smile and not feel embarassed at all!
These days I am living and going to university in San Carlos de Bariloche, in Argentina. In between studying and being with friends, I like to go rock climbing and hike. I live by myself in a studio apartment and try in general to live a healthy life, filled with healthy food, and meditation. Im so happy to return to my roots and where I was born, but I do miss Colorado a lot, and when I come back to visit I would like to thank you for all that you did in person.
I hope that your doing very well and I wish you all the happiness in the world, because you truly deserve it!
Sincerely, Shoam Falcone
PS I added a recent picture just so you could see how healed up I am! THANK YOU, thank you, thank you!!
