Some of you know my story...I even started a netwok CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) about a month and a half ago. I was in so much pain, I had to type with only my right hand. I thought my career as a web develper was over.
Well, miracles DO happen. I talked to my sister in law and she recommended Acupuncture. I thought I should give it a try. I found on a Google pay per click advertisement a wonderful acupuncturist: Dr. Eugene Iwasa.
During the first treatment, Dr. Eugene inserted needles in my right foot and I felt an immediate improvement in my left wrist! It was amazing! For the first time in a long time, I had hope that this nightmare would be over soon. The whole treatment I had a HUGE smile on my face, because I just couldn't believe what was happening!
After 4 treatments, my left wrist was almost back to normal. He also subscribed herbal tea for stress relieve and other issues I am dealing with. Very helpful!
Eugene has proved to be not only a person with GREAT knowledge in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, but also a person with a BIG heart who puts his patients' well being as his first priority. We recently became friends, I even got him on Ryze and designed his Ryze page! (just returning a favor).
If any of you are located in the LA area, contact him. You will thank me :) If not, try to find another good acupuncturist in your area.
His Ryze page is http://www.ryze.com/go/AcuDoc
If you have any questions you can write to me on my Ryze page: http://www.ryze.com/go/LetsTalk
Get rid of this thing!!! Good luck!!!

Merav's testimony speaks more truth than anything I could have delivered! The website she developed for Eugene Iwasa is beautiful too, you should all check it out.
I'll throw it out there to anyone in the Bay Area who is interested in pursuing this route of treatment for repetitive strain injury, that I'm willing to offer 25% off for my acupuncture services if you mention this network! My offices are in San Jose and Santa Cruz and you can contact me through my page.
A couple other things that I've seen people dervies a great deal of benefit from over the years in the clinic are worth mentioning. Magnet therapy has been very effective for reducing or negating severe pain for some people. I forget the exact gauss magnet one needs to use but you might want to contact a chiropractor or acupuncturist who would have access to clinical strength magnets designed for such use.
Nutritional deficiencies can play a big part in these syndromes, particularly B6 and 12. Many of the patients I have seen with this problem have been vegetarians and the problem was only remedied when they included meat in their diet. Also, coffee, you hate to hear it folks, but this beloved stimulant tends to disrupt our bodies natural antiinflammatory cycles and thus disable our ability to repair sites of frequent stress.
Finally, application of mentholated balms i.e. Tiger Balm or Ben Gay several times a day often provide some relief. Oils of St. Johns Wort (a wonderful anti-inflammatory,not just for depression) and arnica, commonly found in health food stores, are also valuable tools in combating this malady.
Good luck in your healing,
