” I came to see Mark Fields due to my restless leg syndrome since I was about 30 years old. Prior to acupuncture treatments, I tried sleeping pills and other vitamin supplements. With acupuncture treatments, I have gone from having severe(nightly) restless leg syndrome to where I have virtually no Restless Leg Syndrome symptoms, and almost all nights, I sleep through the night. This is the best relief I have had with restless leg syndrome. The acupuncture treatment was not at all painful to me. I highly recommend acupuncture. I was a skeptic, but the results have changed my mind! ” ~ Tom

I feel that acupuncture is helping me to get through chemotherapy. Very appreciative!! ” ~ Monique

” The treatment was very helpful for my neck pain condition, the first good result I got right immediately after my first treatment session. Mr. Mark Fields is very attentive and experienced acupuncturist, he has more than 30 years of experience in Acupuncture which is very important for me. He is definitely the doctor I trust. Terri at reception desk is fantastic too, she is always very helpful and nice. The clinic is usually very busy, but she always could make her best to schedule for me some convenient time.” ~ Ekaterina

“I first met Dr. Fields of Accredited Acupuncture back in 1999, I had a herniated disc (L5 S1) and torn para spinals. Dr. Fields got me pain free & able to move (before visiting, I couldn’t bend to start a shower). Needless to say, I was overjoyed with the results.
I have also gone to Dr. Fields for treatment with allergies, migraines, and muscle stiffness. Fast forward to 2013 – I messed up my achilles tendon w/ plantar fasciitis to boot… no one was “fixing me”, so guess where I went – Back to the only person who ever seemed able to help my various ailments. And yes, once again – he resolved my pain issues and allowed me to be able to walk pain free.
So, as you know personal experiences vary. That said, I have referred family & friends to Dr. Mark Fields and ALL had the same... Read more »

” After I awakened in the morning, my esophagus would not let me swallow. I cancelled breakfast plans and instead came in to see Mark Fields for acupuncture treatment. The therapy lasted roughly 30 minutes. Immediately after treatment, the esophagus functioned normally! I ate breakfast at a nearby restaurant. Acupuncture was not painful and I felt as if I had experienced a miracle cure!” – Mark, 83

“My name is Flora, I am 68 years old and in April of 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. I was not a candidate for the surgery because they found a spot on my liver. So I started Chemo every 2 weeks and am still doing chemo. Of course I had all the side effects, no appetite, indigestion, heartburn, nausea and neuropathy in my feet and hands. I also lost about 85 pounds. Then I started acupuncture and I have found relief. It has really helped me with the side effects. I have neuropathy but it has not gotten worse – I can still button my own clothes, put on jewelry, drive and clean the house. It helps improve my taste and appetite. I am not in any pain and the doctor is surprised that I can still continue handling the chemo. I know that coming to acupuncture does... Read more »
” I am very grateful to Mark Fields for his help in treating my fibromyalgia. Honestly, I had very limited hope when I arrived in Mark’s office and met him and Terri for the first time. However, after only a few sessions, I began seeing improvement and after about 5 weeks, there was a significant dial-back in my symptoms of fatigue ( at times during the prior 6-9 months, it was crushing fatigue), tingling in my legs and feet, bloating, brain fogginess, etc. Mark stated that his goal was to reduce my symptoms by about 85% and that is what I experienced. Now, I have my life back and am able to do many of the things I did prior to fibromyalgia.” ~ Barbara

” My mother had knee pain, wasn’t able to walk for three weeks and was recommended to have surgery by her primary care physician. My friend highly recommended Dr. Fields to my mother; after her first treatment she was able to bend her knee and gain mobility. After her 4th treatment she has recovered and has no more pain. I became curious, but still hesitant to make an appointment as I’m horrified of needles. But after seeing my mother’s improvements and being tired of feeling tired and unwell for some time, I decided why not, I’ll give this a try.
During my consultation I told Dr. fields that I have been very tired lately and have not been able to sleep well for a few months (very restless and shallow sleep). I also asked if he could help boost my immune system and balance my hormones. He proceeded to treat... Read more »
