So, I made a decision to quit the prescribed therapy and drugs and searched for another wellness solution. I went to an acupuncturist for pain treatment and a massage therapist to smooth out my muscles. In a matter of 2 months, my right side was almost as long as my left side and the pain had gone away. Glory be, I was back to ‘living’ again.
This year, 2010, now being 56 years old and still trying to do the things I could do at 30, the pain and discomfort returned. I went to see Dr. Marie Perkins, Acupuncture Physician, to see if she could help this old body get back on track. After seeing Dr. Perkins for less than a month, the pain disappeared and my mobility returned. She also treated my right hand, which had been stressed immeasurably by computer work. I was so happy I was finally able to write my father a letter without having to stop and start again to rest my hand. Another side advantage received from Dr. Perkin’s acupuncture was weight loss and a positive improvement in my mental well being.
I wish to recommend Dr. Perkins to anyone that has experienced physical trauma. Perhaps consider visiting Dr. Perkins for treatment first, before other rehabilitation avenues. It just might save you a lot of time and pain!

Dear Dr. Perkins;
I want to express to you with this testimonial, the extent of my gratitude to you for all the pain relief I have received from all of your treatments.
I came to you, not knowing what to expect. I was having several problems and after several treatments, procedures, I realized that I was able to tolerate the lessened pain and no longer suffered the severe leg cramps.
Your pleasant personality, plus your professional knowledge have made my life so much easier. I plan to continue receiving your help. Thank you
To Whom It May Concern;
For quite some time, I had tenosynovitis (trigger finger) in my right thumb and tendinitis in my left thumb. I had been to an orthopedist, chiropractor, and had taken natural anti-inflammatories, to no avail. In fact, my orthopedist said that he couldn’t help me further unless I wanted surgery. The cortisone injection in my right thumb didn’t help.
My husband had started going to Dr. Perkins before I did; and after finding out the needles didn’t hurt, I thought I would try acupuncture for my thumb problems. (I never thought I would ever go to an acupuncturist; but, when traditional medicine failed, I was desperate.) To my surprise, acupuncture was very relaxing and didn’t hurt. Because Dr. Perkins multidisciplinary experience, she used acupuncture, massage, Chinese medicine, and occupational therapy to help me. Also, she was available for telephone consultation after hours. I knew she really wanted me to get well.
After five visits, I continued with the thumb stabilizer (alternating thumbs at night) and the exercise ball. It wasn’t too long after that before I realized I was able to bend my thumbs without pain again. I was so happy to have full use of my thumbs again. Thanks Dr. Perkins for your patience and care through my treatment.
I also receive cold laser therapy to my neck and shoulders to alleviate the pain and soreness I am continually combating from a prior whiplash injury. It is amazing how much relief I receive with each cold laser treatment. Dr. Marie is such a warm and caring doctor, and very knowledgeable in the treatment of her patients. I always recommend her to my friends, family, and clients for all of they health care and pain reduction needs.
She is extremely knowledgeable and offers detailed assessments of all items affecting ones health. From pain treatments, asthma treatments, to back pain, I fully recommend the services Dr Marie offers.
