Improvement Beyond Expectation – I cannot recommend Christopher Hudson enough. I first visited him seeking relief from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain after physical therapy and medication had offered limited results. While I was optimistic, I was not prepared for the significant improvement I saw in all aspects of my health after just a few treatments. While it was my intolerable back/neck pain that motivated me to seek Christopher's help, I suffer from a variety of chronic conditions, including migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, narcolepsy, overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, ADHD, allergies, asthma, and anxiety. In my first visit, Christopher took a comprehensive health history and listened patiently and asked great questions as I outlined my extensive medical history. This was my first glimpse into his thorough, conscientious and compassionate approach to treatment. He thoughtfully explained the acupuncture process in general as well as the many areas he thought I could benefit from treatment. Christopher has exceeded my expectations by far. In addition to the considerable relief to my back and neck, I have seen significant improvement to my headaches, gastrointestinal symptoms, sleep quality, energy levels and overall moods. Not only do I feel better physically, but I also have a more positive and resilient attitude. He continues to amaze me – thoughtfully listening as I explain seemingly unrelated connections, he is able to make incredibly insightful connections he is able to make from seemingly unrelated symptoms. I am confident that anyone can benefit from Christopher Hudson’s acupuncture treatment. My only regret is that I hadn’t contacted him sooner. Don’t wait like I did – call him and start feeling better today.

Acupuncture with Professionalism and Thoughtfulness – I met Christopher Hudson about a year and a half ago after moving back from Europe, where I had lived for the past ten years. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism when I was about six years old, although it was suspected that I started to suffer from the condition at the age of three, which brings me back to Chris, well for anyone who knows some of the inconvenient and upsetting side effects of having a hormonal imbalance is hair loss, which for a woman is even more disturbing and devastating. When I was first seen by Chris he treated me with the utmost respect and consideration and like any esteemed professional listened to me as I explained to him how I had virtually lost almost all of my hair, due to my thyroid problem, and how much this had afflicted me in every aspect of my life. I can now say that it was well worth it to have considered acupuncture as an alternative to conventional medicine, which was not helping me in any way, and sometimes even making things worse. I no longer wear my head scarf, which I had been wearing for about two years and am happy to say I now have a full head of hair and my confidence restored and haven't had any problems with my thyroid levels since my treatments started. I hope that this can help other people with the same problem especially women like myself who think there is no solution, but there is! Thank you Chris for everything!!!!

Great experience! – I found Chris in my search for an alternative to a number of health problems that came up for me. I have allergies, eczema, hashimoto's thyroiditis, rheynaud's, IBS and developed uveitis (eye inflammation) which doctors thought was due to internal inflammation caused by an immune disorder. They did not find anything but thought there was something happening internally with my immune system. I went to Chris very frustrated and anxious about what was happening. In the meantime I was going through the application process to a PhD program. In sum, Chris was very knowledgeable and recommended some supplements that have really helped. He was very gentle and understanding and I found that my anxiety was greatly reduced while going to Chris. The uveitis is completely gone since going to Chris regularly. My eczema still flares up but it too improved. Overall, I would highly recommend Chris. He is not only a great acupuncturist but a great person as well! I have since moved out of the Philly area to start a PhD program...I really miss going to acupuncture with him!!

Relief from intestinal disorder – I took an appointment with Christopher Hudson to get some help with gastrointestinal problems (epigastric pain and loose stools after the removal of my gallbladder). Christopher took the time to run a comprehensive evaluation and he made me feel comfortable right away. After the first session I felt relief and my health improved dramatically after the third session. Christopher also treat me for stress and the results were immediate and very efficient. I had previous experiences with acupuncture but I have never met an acupuncturist so attentive and gentle with the placement of needles. To me he is the best by far. If you are looking for somebody who will really take the time to listen and make a difference, Christopher is the one. Sandy

Greatly reduced severe pain from thoracic outlet syndrome – Christopher Hudson made a tremendous difference in my ability to recover from severe neck and shoulder pain. I was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) and had been referred by my neurologist to a physical therapist who specialized in TOS. Unfortunately the pain and stiffness in my neck prevented me from progressing. I spoke to several people who routinely received acupuncture for severe pain and learned that it was important to find someone which numerous years of experience and a gentle touch. After some investigating, I found Chris who seemed to fit the bill. After only two sessions I was dramatically better, so much so, that the physical therapist immediately noticed the difference. With the help of Chris’ expert technique I was finally able to complete physical therapy and get back to the biking that I enjoy so much. Part of Chris’ success is the personalized attention he provides. He takes the time to get to know his patients and develop a treatment strategy that will best work for their situation. His skill is remarkable and has never caused me any significant discomfort. I still periodically see Chris if I am feeling any flaring of the problem which has been both helpful for my neck and psyche. I should also note that after seeing my dramatic improvement, my physical therapist began referring patients to Chris.

Life Changing – Chris managed to alter my mood, my health, and my career path all within a few months of acupuncture appointments. I suffered from sinus problems and post nasal drip and with Chris' help these issues have all but disappeared. He also has helped with stress relief. Two appointments a month have had a very relaxing and beneficial affect. All of these things have contributed to me wanting to help other people find better health and happiness through holistic channels. I strongly advise anyone looking to improve their health and mood to go to Chris. He is friendly, professional, and without an uncomfortable salesman mentality.

Best Acupuncture in Philly! – I have been suffering from anxiety for most of my adult life. I have been on Lexapro, and tried a variety of other herbal anti-anxiety supplements. Lexapro relieved my anxiety, but left me with a dull feeling, and I hated the like the idea of being on medication most of my life (since the anxiety came back after going off the medication). After a recent episode of depression which was caused by anxiety, I looked up acupuncture on Citysearch and read Chris's reviews. I immediately called him, and got an appointment a few days later. After my first appointment, I felt more calm then I've felt in years and the best part was that it lasted! The great part about acupuncture is that it helped me with some digestive issues and headaches along with the anxiety. Chris listens to your specific concerns and modifies the treatment each time to help you with whatever problems you may be having at the time. Since I don't have health insurance, it is an affordable way to maintain my health without the extra cost of expensive medications that never seem to work. I would recommend Chris for acupuncture to anyone who would like an affordable personal treatment for a variety of health issues. I recommend him to all of my friends and family! Chris is friendly and easy to talk to, and really listens to all of my concerns. I only wish I knew about Rittenhouse Acupuncture years ago, because I feel like I've gotten my life back!

A Great Help – I have suffered with migraine headaches for many years and have tried everything to help manage the pain. After reading about Rittenhouse Acupuncture, I decided to give it a try and have been very happy with the results. The acupuncture treatments have not only helped with my headaches but with stress and anxiety. I have noticed that I feel calmer in all situations and am not as anxious. Christopher Hudson has a very caring way about him, is easy to talk to, and makes you feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend him for acupuncture treatment for any kind of pain.
