When I first saw Constance, I was in daily pain, due to severe arthritis in my left knee. I had already had a replacement in my right knee and was hoping for a different solution for my left knee. I learned about acupuncture at a seminar presented by Angela, the treatment coordinator for Still Waters Healing Center. Even though I did not like needles, I was willing to try it, if it might help with my pain.
Constance is a remarkable person as well as a remarkable Acupuncture Physician. She took a thorough history and explained how acupuncture could help improve health overall as well as relieve pain.Most of the time, you don’t feel the needles and, if you do, it’s for a nanosecond. Constance has a remarkable touch and uses other things that I can’t even spell to aid in your treatment.
My initial visit was the end of October 2008. About the 4th or 6th treatment, she took me from knife stabbing pain to zero pain, and I was amazed, to say the least. Constance is very humble and gives God the credit for the healing. My pain returned after 4 days of no pain (which was the longest I had been pain free in such a long time), but with continuing treatment my left knee has been pain free since March 2009.
I had an appointment in April with my orthopedist and was able to tell him that I didn’t think I needed a knee replacement. He agreed.
I will be eternally grateful to Constance. The other staff at Still Waters Healing Center are also very professional and helpful.
As a 64-year old female who has suffered a lifetime with chronic pain as a result of an automobile accident, plus experiencing a herniated disc as well as developing fibromyalgia, and having trouble with a digestive disorder from the “shelving” of my Shotsky’s Ring, I tried everything that traditional Western medicine had to offer before even considering Eastern medicine.
Thanks to the love of a close friend who invited me to attend a yoga class, I was introduced to the healing art that comes through acupuncture. My first visit to Still Waters Healing Center exceeded my expectations and put all my feaers to rest. Dr. Constance Fraatz carefully removed the blinders from my eyes about Eastern medicine and helped me to see the benefits that extend far beyond just the physical healing. I have experienced both emotional and mental encouragement because Dr. Fraatz took the time to genuinely care about my overall health and well being. Her approach is calming, reassuring, and comprehensive. Her expertise is simply invaluable.
I want to thank Dr. Fraatz for giving me hope that healing is possible and for giving me my health back. Acupuncture has saved me from invasive surgery and has freed me from a life of chronic pain that I never dreamed could happen. Words cannot possibly express the depth of my gratitude to my friend for paving the road and to Dr. Constance Fraatz for caring enough to help me complete the journey to a healthier me through Eastern medicine, especially the art of acupuncture.
With a heart of gratitude,
I was looking to improve my health and received so much more. Since my daughter studied herbal medicine in college, I was looking for some one that could assist me in general well being. StillWaters Healing Center is such a calm and pleasing place. Constance has listened and put me on a great track to taking care of myself. I feel better, I am calmer and clearer. Thanks for giving me a greater sense of myself.
I just want to say thank you for all you have done to help me regain my health. As I told you in my first appointment, I have been plagued with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other serious health issues for the past seven years. After many tests, treatments and no success I had little hope for improvement short of a miracle. Since I have been under your care, the treatments I have received the past two months have produced outstanding results. I am so thankful for you and StillWaters Healing Center. As a woman of prayer, I believe God has answered mine and has used you in a powerful way to bring healing to my hurting body. I’m getting better everyday! Thank you for taking the time to listen, to study my history and provide the treatment I needed so desperately. May the Lord bless and keep you always. I remain forever grateful.
The Acupuncturists at StillWaters Healing Center have treated me with such warmth, generosity, and expertise that I wouldn’t dare think of going anywhere else! Constance works on my neck pain I’ve had for the last several years due to degenerating disks. After seven months of weekly treatments, I am very happy to say that my pain has reduced and that I only have to take prescription pain medication for my head/neck once every couple weeks (rather than three or four days per week). For every visit, my time on her table has been a highlight of my week. In the weeks ahead, as I visit two times per month, I have no doubt that my body will keep responding to the treatments and that my pain-free weeks will continue.
Effective and Comfortable. That’s the best way to describe the Acupuncture at StillWaters Healing Center. I’m still in disbelief about how well the treatments have made me feel. It’s like I’ve got my life back. It’s amazing how treating the root problems and not just the symptoms can bring such an overall feeling of well-being and not just mask the issues like typical prescriptions do. I was tired of taking medication that left me feeling not like myself and really wanted to try the more natural method of Acupuncture. I am glad I did.
Over the past ten years, I have had very few “good” days. The pain and discomfort from Arthritis and Fibromyalgia were ever present and some days, I felt as if I had been run over by a truck. Nothing seemed to bring relief, and explaining my pain to doctors was most frustrating. I just didn’t feel like they believed me, or that they had any idea how to help me. When I was feeling my worst, I decided to try StillWaters Healing Center. It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. I’ve been coming here for about four months and now actually take note when I have had a “bad” day. The Acupuncture sessions are making a big difference in my life. I can honestly say that the horrible, constant pain is a thing of the past. The staff are truly caring, very knowledgeable , and most of all, offer hope. Give it a try!
A year ago I was told that I had profound premature ovarian aging. I’m 36 years old. I came to see Constance Fraatz a little over six months ago in hopes to cure my painful periods and premature ovarian aging. Very recently I had an AMH blood test. It indicated my ovaries are perfectly healthy with no evidence of premature ovarian aging. I’m thrilled and thankful to Constance.
I came to the StillWaters Healing Center after being diagnosed with a pinched sciatic nerve. My family doctor had given me steroid shots and pills, hot packs, cold packs, and deep massage – all to no avail. It was extremely painful to sit, stand, walk or even lie down. With his approval, I decided to try Acupuncture. Upon my initial visit, my complete medical history was reviewed and I was evaluated. After that first treatment I decided to continue on. With each successive treatment I made progress and today am pain free and able to walk with ease. I am looking forward to working in my gardens again. The staff at StillWaters is wonderful – each and every one of them. I have been treated with respect yet an endearing friendly manner. I can wholeheartedly, without reservation, attribute a feeling of wellness to them!
