We alone have the power to find or to lose our essence.  But we need help along the way.  This is but one of the reasons we need each other.

In the fall of 2004 I was diagnosed with three autoimmune diseases (sarcoidosis, autoimmune hepatitis and HLA B27).  My team of doctors put me on large doses of prednisone, sulfa drugs and other medications.  While the medication initially helped diminish some of my symptoms, the underlying problems still remained.  The more I learned about these diseases the more I realized there is little that modern medicine knows about them and even worse, little guarantee that the medications I was taking would not further impact my body in the long run and cause more harm than good.  

So, I started researching on my own and found in most of the research that acupuncture and herbal treatments were found to be two of the best ways to force autoimmune conditions into remission and create a better, if not normal quality of life.  Since I was fearful of acupuncture, I first sought the treatment of an herbalist, which helped but did not provide the results I was hoping for.  My herbalist then suggested I get acupuncture and recommended Chris at Oasis Acupuncture.  

I made the appointment, but was very nervous about what to expect.  I had a picture of a creepy office and scary needles.  I was very pleasantly surprised when I walked into Oasis Acupuncture.   It was clean and I felt safe.  Chris was wonderful!  He was one of the first people I had worked with that recognized how difficult it must be to be 27 and have these ailments.  Chris definitely made the initial process much easier.  He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with the procedure.

During the first treatment I could literally feel movement in my body.  Almost immediately following my first treatment I could see and feel a difference in all my joints and in the way I moved.  It was the first time in over a year that I could see the bones in my ankles because the swelling was reduced.  Even my friends noticed that I moved better and faster.  I was thrilled!  

I continued treatments once a week for almost three months and then tapered to a visit once a month.  I have been going to Oasis Acupuncture for over a year and it has made a world of difference!  My doctors have seen significant improvements in my blood work and have even been able to reduce my medications to almost nothing.  It is fantastic!  I can honestly say that without acupuncture treatments I would not be functioning at the normal level I do today.  I am forever grateful to acupuncture and to Chris for making it such a painless process.  Thank You!

You're simply wonderful.

I had several fertility issues to overcome and had read about the benefits of acupuncture. My Reproductive Endocrinologist also mentioned that I consider it on my first visit with him. Fortunately, that same week I had scheduled my first visit with Chris.

Chris treated me for three months prior to the insemination procedure (an IUI) and despite my being 40 and having 6 different medical issues, I conceived my wonderful son during that one procedure with frozen donor sperm.

Combining Eastern and Western medicine worked perfectly for me and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you Chris!

Chris was able to clear up my problem with three sessions of acupuncture! My Achilles tendons were inflamed to the point that I thought my basketball playing days were over. Incredible pain to play, and immense suffering afterwards; with no relief from any kind of pain/inflammation treatment.

The first session was a mild exploratory test for acupuncture. This was my trying something I hadn't experienced before, but I was desperate enough to try anything. It revealed just a little relief. For the second session Chris and I realized we needed to go further, to do a more rigorous session to realize a benefit. It worked!!! Major relief. I was on my way back from a serious impairment. Within a day or two I realized a complete recovery from a debilitating situation.

The third session closed the door on the problem. I'm back running and jumping, playing full court basketball. No problems, no relapses. I almost quit basketball. I'm now playing pain free.

Thanks Chris!!!!!!

I had Chris do Acupuncture for Restless Legs. With a few sessions and some herbs my restless leg problem has disappeared. I think this is a wonderful way to balance my body and will go back to correct any other imbalance. I highly recommend Chris to anyone.
- Jan Katcher

I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of treatment I received from Chris Vedeler. He tried a technique on me that was right on the money with the results. I was looking for an acupuncture treatment that was beyond the physical and incorporated more spiritual results. This kind of technique is hard to find in Tucson so I travel all the way to Scottsdale just to go to Oasis Acupuncture. The environment is very pristine and Chris' warm personality is always calming. 
- Lauren Johnson

Chris is very professional and passionate about using his talents to help others. I was most impressed with the results of just one session with him, and I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who is willing to heal from within.

We had been trying to conceive for over 3 years with the help of fertility specialists. While preparing for our last IVF cycle, we both had acupuncture by Chris. Prior to the transfer Chris met us at the MD's office for acupuncture and then did a treatment following the transfer. We are happy to report that we are now 8 weeks pregnant!!!! We are going to continue acupuncture to sustain our pregnancy, and to relieve the morning sickness. Thank you so much Chris, we truly feel that you and the acupuncture played a big role in making this happen.
