I suffered from acne for almost five years. It began during high school and and continued throughout my time in college. It was very uncomfortable and particularly difficult to handle socially. After trying a number of different prescriptions and seeing little to no relief, I was frustrated and willing to try anything to alleviate my condition. Some of the drugs and topical treatments severely dried my skin. I did not want to take any more prescription drugs and decided on a more natural approach to curing my acne. I was desperate for an effective solution to my problem. I came across Comprehensive Medical Services and was drawn to the many positive reviews regarding their acupuncture and herbal treatments. I was impressed with Hudson and Dr. Doyle and very comfortable with the treatments. In addition to acne, I also was suffering from anxiety concerning my condition and hot flashes during the day. Within a month of receiving acupuncture and taking the herbal tea formula, I felt calmer and more comfortable throughout the day. The redness in my face began to go away and by the end of my treatment period, I had virtually zero acne remaining. I was shocked and ecstatic with the results. My journey with CMS gave me greater confidence and left me with remarkably clearer skin. I am grateful to CMS for everything, and showing me the path to a healthier future, the natural way! They are very professional and dedicated to improving your health. I received counseling on my nutrition, monthly re-exams to evaluate my progress, and noted that my condition steadily improved with every visit. Today I am happy to say I have great skin with no significant acne. Going to CMS was by far the best decision I could have made regarding my health.

I have a 9 year old daughter who struggles with ADHD, which affects her in a number of different ways – school work, socially and it takes it toll on her self-esteem. It is difficult for such a young child to comprehend why she can’t sit still, why she is always running around and generally why she can’t control herself in certain situations. In our opinion pharmaceutical therapies can help with the symptoms, but they certainly don’t address the cause and effect, and they come with many side effects. In fact we tried the meds approach for a short time but we only saw negative side effect and no benefits. A couple of years ago we took her to CMS in the hopes they might be able to help her, either through a natural supplement, or through acupuncture. The course of act was to treat her with a natural herb tea which would help calm her down and reduce the ADHD symptoms. The results have been excellent. The herbs help calm her down, they help her sleep more soundly and generally help take the edge off of her. There are no side effects like we saw with the meds (no night terrors, no appetite loss, no sleeping problems, no hallucinations, all of which are common with the pharmaceutical therapies). The approach we have chosen with CMS has been a great path for us and our daughter. We are comfortable with the natural approach and we trust Hudson, his opinions and his advice. Furthermore, all of the staff at CMS have been more than helpful and responsive throughout our entire experience. I would certainly recommend CMS to anyone who might like to explore this type of approach for their child with ADHD, or for any persons with a chronic health problem.

My 15-year-old son suffered from anxiety and insomnia (which led to conditions that were labeled ADHD). The ADHD medications didn t work and had awful side effects. Dr. Hudson has brought about a great change in my son. His anxiety is dramatically improved, and the insomnia is much less of a problem. His ADHD symptoms went away once the anxiety was better. I am very pleased with his successful treatment.

I have had allergies for most of my life including constant runny nose, daily headaches and hives, sore throats that lasted for months and asthma attacks. I spent about 10 years on inhalers and allergy drugs with no end in sight and finally had enough. I started receiving acupuncture treatments from Dr. Doyle and Hudson Doyle twice a week about two months ago. The acupuncture, cupping and Chinese herbs have really helped my symptoms. I even went into a highly allergic environment last weekend where I previously had to take antihistamines and use an inhaler. This time I didn’t take anything and was astonished by how good I felt. I also really like that with Dr. Doyle and Hudson I can mix a little bit of Western medicine and Chinese medicine. CMS facilitated a food allergy test and a Candida test for me. The symptoms from the Candida I have had for 25 years and not one Western doctor has had any idea what was wrong or how to treat it. I’m feeling so much better now without all the worry and issues that goes on with having daily allergy reactions. I really feel like I am getting treatment for my whole body and all of its systems, not just employing band-aids for each of my individual symptoms. It feels more like a cure and my body healing more than anything I did in Western medicine.

A recommendation from a friend brought me to Comprehensive Medical Services; I was feeling stress due to work and family issues and had developed hip pain and neck/shoulder pain and numbness that I was trying to ignore. Ignoring was not working, so I made an appointment and met with Dr Doyle and Hudson Doyle. I am so grateful that I did! The care and understanding from Dr Doyle and Hudson Doyle have led to a new and improved me. After just a few acupuncture sessions with Hudson Doyle, I feel a great difference in my hip (no pain) and neck/shoulder (less tightness and no numbness) as an added benefit I feel a renewed strength of self and empowerment that I seemed to have lost. Thank you Comprehensive Medical Services!‎

I entered the office on crutches, taking pain killers every day for my knee pain, back pain, and hip pain. Today I realized how far I had come in recovery when I was able to work out for a half hour on the bicycle and treadmill with no pain! I remember that after a few months of treatments, I was surprised and pleased to find that I no longer had any more hip or lower back pain. This was a pain I had to take painkillers for EVERY DAY! I am now working on improving my immune system with herbs prescribed Hudson, which have begun to make a difference in clearing up my chest and sinuses. I am also looking forward to concentrating on some new approaches and treatments for weight loss. I not only recommend acupuncture and herbal medicine here, but I also appreciate the personal approach and interest Dr. Doyle and Hudson have taken in me as a person.
— Judith Woodruff

After six years of almost weekly care by you, I was pleasantly surprised many times and completely satisfied with the expertise and care that you have provided to me, through Acupuncture and Herbal and Nutritional Care. As you are well aware, I have had many physical problems such as continual allergies, two very serious falls, a bout with kidney stones and other maladies. In every instance you were able to promptly give me relief.

Because of allergies I had been on Flonase and antihistamines for 6 years when I met Hudson Doyle. After four acupuncture treatments I discontinued my medications and am doing very well. ( My Primary Care Physician is very happy for me) I continue to receive acupuncture treatments every week and have started a regimen of Chinese herbs prescribed by Hudson. Each day I feel my system getting stronger and more balanced to deal with the allergens that used to effect me so drastically. No more sinus infections! In addition to Hudson’s treatments I use a Netti pot and Simply Saline to help move unwanted allergens along. I am so happy to be Flonase and antihistamine free!

About 20 years ago i was suffering every year with sinus infections…..my parents and all my siblings suffered with it also and had just about resigned ourselves that there was nothing we could do except keep taking the meds that were prescribed…which always had side effects. Then one day a friend of mine suggested i try acupuncture….first i was scared…but because i was sooo miserable….and i trusted this friend…i decided to try it… Well…the rest is history….after i had success year after year with the sinuses infections….i slowly tried treatments for other physical challenges…..fatigue…..insomnia…etc. Besides acupuncture, Comprehensive Medical Provided access to Chinese herbs, homeopathic remedies. and massage therapy. Once the doctors said i had to have an operation because they said i had a hernia….but after using homeopathic remedies….i went back to the doctor less than a month later…and guess what…the hernia was gone. (seriously) I could go on and on…but what i really want to emphasize is the kind of care that is provided at comprehensive medical…..the dedication….the professionalism…..etc. Before any treatment, they always have a consult with you so one gets a chance to express concerns. I want to be honest…these remedies have not helped all of my ailments….but i have never….never had side effects of any kind. Recently, I had a pinched nerve in my neck and back…i was out of work for two months….the doctors could only put me on strong pain killers…..i decided to go on a regular basis for acupuncture and little by little the pain went from a 10+ to and 1-2. Again…i want to be honest….it was important to go on a regular basis in order for acupuncture to really work. For me….it worked slowly and very surely…..then when the symptoms lessen…one doesn’t have to go as frequently…..it’s called the maintenance period…to help one stay in good health… I am honored to put down my thoughts about my experiences with not only acupuncture but with the treatment i have received (and continue to receive) at this healing facility.

I was suffering for five months with chronic hives. Everyday I was covered from head to toe with large itchy welts. My allergist could not determine the cause of my hives and had me take medicines such as Benadryl, Allegra, to no avail. When she decided I should go on Prednisone I said no. I went to see Dr. Doyle . After having an initial consultation with Dr. Doyle I started acupuncture with Hudson. Hudson also added Chinese herbs. It did not take long to see positive results. In a few short weeks I began to see improvement and after a few months my hives were completely gone! I am happy to say it has been almost 6 months and I am hive free! Hudson is also treating me for allergies and I am feeling so much better. I am currently in the process of coming off blood pressure medicine. This is also a bonus of the acupuncture and herbs. Dr. Doyle and Hudson work together for the best interest of their patient. I would recommend anyone with a health issue to make an appointment at CMS. The entire staff at CMS is caring and friendly and you will leave feeling so much better. I have been treated with acupuncture, primarily by Hudson Doyle, at CMS for a variety of issues over the past two years. I have found great relief, most especially from a chronic sinus condition. They are responsive and caring and look at the whole person. I am so glad that to have found them and highly recommend them.

I have always been an anxious person, but with menopause settling in, the death of both my parents, and a stressful job, my body shut down. I was suffering from a dry throat, shortness of breath, exhaustion, sleeplessness, and was having trouble completing day to day tasks. I was told by my GP to go on meds for anxiety– the happy pills –but I did not want to do that. I have too many friends taking those and they keep increasing the dosage and are not getting better. I wanted a natural approach to making me feel better. Hudson explained that this would not be a quick fix, that I needed to get rid of the symptoms but more importantly I needed to correct what was causing the issues. I have been going a few months now and I have to say, I have never slept better in the 25 years since I had my children! My hormones are stabilizing and my symptoms are significantly better. I now have full energy and can complete daily tasks without problems. I had so many issues , I knew this was going to be a challenge and would take some time. Hudson listens to me and thinks outside the box to make me feel better. I am so happy that I found them.

I have sought out acupuncture throughout my life to cure headaches, stress, and PMS issues. Each experience has been quite successful. Recently a friend referred me to Hudson Doyle to help ease my IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) that I have suffered with for many years. Intestinal specialists and my GP never gave me as much relief as my visits with Hudson. The chronic symptoms have subsided and I feel better than I have in years. The great thing about Hudson’s practice is that it treats the whole mind and body, as well as, to heal the root cause of symptoms. Not only has my IBS improved but I also have less day to day anxiety, I sleep better at night, and feel more conscientious about my well being. Acupuncture at Comprehensive Medical Services is definitely worth a try! I know I will never regret it.‎

I wanted to make sure you know how much I appreciated everything you have done for me. You were the first doctor who I felt really was helpful and dedicated to helping me. I don’t think I could have finished up school without your help.It had been close to a year of being sick and after seeing you for treatments I felt myself again. For that I can not thank you enough. Please extend my thanks to you everyone in the office for all of their help as well.
– Angela

The Doyle family makes you feel welcome from the moment you step foot inside the building, a welcome attribute considering most people’s apprehension about the practice in general. While I mainly went to the CMS to deal with my insomnia and anxiety, I’ve learned countless lessons about my overall health through the organ driven philosophy of Chinese medicine. Hudson has been my acupuncturist and he has been very patient with me describing how certain symptoms relate to the state of my organs and outlining how to nutritional support his work. In a very short period of time my sleep has improved and my stress levels have diminished. But more surprisingly other areas of my health have improved dramatically producing many additional positive outcomes. Please check CMS out if you have ever considered acupuncture. You will learn so much about yourself and feel better too!

I’ve been going to CMS for acupuncture on a regular basis for a number of related health issues. I am continually impressed with the care I receive.The office staff is very accommodating and Hudson is passionate about the practice of acupuncture and committed to assisting his patients achieve wellness. Highly recommended!
— Melissa B

It has been a while, yet I wanted to express my gratitude for the excellent care you provided me with. Before I began treatment with you, I felt depressed and hopeless about the condition of my hands and arms—my livelihood and happiness! I felt really bleak about my future and the possibility of recovery, but here I am six months later working long hours on bikes with little or no pain! I cannot express enough how important that is to me. I wish you the best,

Chronic Headaches, Migraines and Insomnia


Finally! Relief for migraine pain! ‎‎
I had been thinking of trying acupuncture for a years but never quite got around to it. I went in for my first appointment, seeking relief for migraine pain that I have lived with on a consistent basis since my early teens – about 20 years. For the first time in 20 years, I do not need to take Tylenol on regular basis, I can go without migraine medicine (codeine) for weeks on end, and I am even sleeping better than I have in years! I had no idea what to expect, but I am so very happy with the results. I recommend acupuncture to everyone I know, especially anyone in pain, and I recommend Comprehensive Medical Services highly as a place to go. Hudson explains everything to me as he goes along, patiently answering my many questions at each and every visit. I hope others decide – as I did – to stop waiting and try acupuncture – because I am completely positive they will be as pleased with the results as I am!

I started going to Dr. Doyle and Hudson for neck and hand pain. But I had a host of other complaints including frequent urination, dry mouth, and possible infertility. I became a regular patient of Hudson and went for acupuncture twice/week and took the herbal supplements he gave me. I was pregnant and almost pain free in less than a month. It has bene 6 months now and I can sleep through most nights without waking up to urinate! This has helped both me and my husband. I am also off all my allergy medications and feel great! I highly recommend Hudson and Dr. Doyle!

For the last twenty years I have dealt with chronic pain from arthritis in my lower back, neck, knees and ankles. Exercising and even walking was so painful. I have been on many medications for most of those twenty years. I began having pain and photosensitivity in my eyes in 2011. In the fall of 2011 I began working with Hudson Doyle and Dr. James Doyle of CMS and, using a combined therapy of acupuncture and herbs, I have been relieved of my back, neck, knee and ankle pain. I have been able to get off of the fluid retention medication because I am now eliminating fluid regularly, on my own. My eyes are improved and I no longer have pain and light sensitivity. I walk and exercise almost every day and continue to feel better because of my acupuncture treatments. I would recommend CMS to anyone who wants to live a pain free, drug free, healthy life.

Hudson. I miss coming to see you. Since leaving my job in Newton, I decided to locate another acupuncturist closer to home– who was familiar with your name, not surprisingly. I want to thank you for teaching me so much about the practice of your healing art. I have great respect for the work that you do. Thank you so very much for treating my arthritis, blood disorder, liver and for calming me with success. The relief from my chronic pain has been incredible. Thank you Hudson, I am better for knowing you! I will refer anyone who comes to mind directly to you in the future.

I came to CMS to treat many issues stemming from the neurological autoimmune condition Narcolepsy. There is no cure for Narcolepsy and as far as treatment goes, the only options available via western medicine were powerful drugs, which my system would not tolerate. Hudson and Doctor Doyle have teamed up to provide me with treatment that has increased my energy and concentration by leaps and bounds and reduced pain and anxiety greatly. I have been out of work for three years due to health issues, but with CMS’s help, I hope to return to work in the near future. I highly recommend CMS to anyone experiencing health issues that are beyond the scope of western medicine!

Dr. Doyle is the only Doctor!!! I have lower back problems/sciatica, and have for years. While Chiropractors are helpful, acupuncture is the solution to pain-free living……..I have learned so much from Dr. Doyle that I no longer live on ibuprofen…. So, if you are sick and tired of the way you feel, make an apt with Dr. Doyle and turn your life around! OR, go to your doctor and keep filling your prescriptions. If you keep on doing what you have done nothing will change, and that goes for your health too!!!!!!!!!!

I have had neck pain for many years. My doctor told me I needed surgery. Instead of surgery I decided to do acupuncture. After only a few treatments I started to get relief and after three months of treatment not only do I no longer have chronic pain but I am feeling much better overall, I can do yoga poses that I haven’t been able to do for twelve years, and I was able to avoid the surgery! My doctors also told me that I had incurable rosacea which caused me discomfort on my face, but this too is better. Thank you Doctors Doyle.

A year ago, a number of events lead me to experience what a therapist diagnosed simply as, post-traumatic stress disorder. The symptoms were varying and scattered: memory loss, cognitive difficulties, panic, emotional/physical stress, worry, dizziness, neck spasms and pain, fatigue, and an overall sense of imbalance. Six months later, I was re-diagnosed with a chronic neurological movement disorder, Cervical Dystonia, an untreatable condition. I was left with an inability to walk, drive, stand up straight, and at times eat or swallow. I was told I’d have to spend the rest of my life managing these symptoms. Determined to find relief, I spent thousands of dollars on NSA, (light chiropractic touches thought to retrain the nervous system- a method considered highly effective in most cases). After over thirty treatments, with only one real remission from symptoms, I was told that my condition had not improved at all in its severity. Even after the evaluation with Dr. Doyle, I knew I was in good hands. He listened to everything as I explained it, and had insights and questions no other doctor had even considered taking the time to ask or wonder about. There was actually a goal, to treat the underlying condition. After one treatment with Hudson, my chiropractor was shocked at the improvement (he believed my case to be untreatable, and felt it would be a long time before I saw any real improvement in symptoms). Three treatments later, and the severity of the symptoms still have yet to return. My motion has improved remarkably, and for the first time in months I honestly believe I can have my life back. Thank you so much.

CMS has helped me tremendously through the past few months. I was a patient of Dr. Doyle’s over eight years ago for pneumonia, and even back then I was amazed by this man’s approach to medicine and how quickly I recovered after only a few visits. More recently, I became a frequent patient at CMS because I was searching for a diagnosis to my severe fatigue even after hours of sleep, frequent headaches/dizziness, and my cold intolerance. I could barely get through the day anymore without frequent naps. I had searched high and low for a western-medicine diagnosis, but it could not be found. So I relied on Dr. Doyle and Hudson to help me, in less than a month I was back on my feet, felt amazing and finally began to feel normal. I believe Hudson and Dr. Doyle put together a strong team for each patient, and I would recommend them to anyone.

I arrived at CMS looking for help with three problems: Visual Migraines, Gout Pain, and chronic lower back stiffness that limited my movement. After a course of acupuncture and herbs, my migraines have reduced in frequency by at least 80% and in severity as well. My gout pain used to be present for extended periods and severe enough to inhibit movement, but now the pain is occasional and momentary. Although my back stiffness is still frequently present, it no longer leads to spasms.

For 3 months conventional medicine could not diagnose what was making me ill. The doctors did many tests and after referring me to a surgeon to see about removing my gallbladder (their best guess), I decided to try acupuncture. After 2 weeks of treatment at CMS, I was feeling better. It was truly remarkable. I have continued with a full course of treatment and have kept my gallbladder as well as improved overall health and well-being. Amazing!

While I mainly went to the CMS to deal with my insomnia and anxiety, I’ve learned countless lessons about my overall health through the organ driven philosophy of Chinese medicine. Hudson has been my acupuncturist and he has been very patient with me describing how certain symptoms relate to the state of my organs and outlining how to nutritional support his work. In a very short period of time my sleep has improved and my stress levels have diminished. But more surprisingly other areas of my health have improved dramatically producing many additional positive outcomes. Please check CMS out if you have ever considered acupuncture. You will learn so much about yourself and feel better too!

A recommendation from a friend brought me to Comprehensive Medical Services; I was feeling stress due to work and family issues and had developed hip pain and neck/shoulder pain and numbness that I was trying to ignore. Ignoring was not working, so I made an appointment and met with Dr Doyle and Hudson Doyle. I am so grateful that I did! The care and understanding from Dr Doyle and Hudson Doyle have led to a new and improved me. After just a few acupuncture sessions with Hudson Doyle, I feel a great difference in my hip (no pain) and neck/shoulder (less tightness and no numbness) as an added benefit I feel a renewed strength of self and empowerment that I seemed to have lost. Thank you Comprehensive Medical Services!‎

I entered the office on crutches, taking pain killers every day for my knee pain, back pain, and hip pain. Today I realized how far I had come in recovery when I was able to work out for a half hour on the bicycle and treadmill with no pain! I remember that after a few months of treatments, I was surprised and pleased to find that I no longer had any more hip or lower back pain. This was a pain I had to take painkillers for EVERY DAY! I am now working on improving my immune system with herbs prescribed Hudson, which have begun to make a difference in clearing up my chest and sinuses. I am also looking forward to concentrating on some new approaches and treatments for weight loss. I not only recommend acupuncture and herbal medicine here, but I also appreciate the personal approach and interest Dr. Doyle and Hudson have taken in me as a person.

I have always been an anxious person, but with menopause settling in, the death of both my parents, and a stressful job, my body shut down. I was suffering from a dry throat, shortness of breath, exhaustion, sleeplessness, and was having trouble completing day to day tasks. I was told by my GP to go on meds for anxiety– the happy pills –but I did not want to do that. I have too many friends taking those and they keep increasing the dosage and are not getting better. I wanted a natural approach to making me feel better. Hudson explained that this would not be a quick fix, that I needed to get rid of the symptoms but more importantly I needed to correct what was causing the issues. I have been going a few months now and I have to say, I have never slept better in the 25 years since I had my children! My hormones are stabilizing and my symptoms are significantly better. I now have full energy and can complete daily tasks without problems. I had so many issues , I knew this was going to be a challenge and would take some time. Hudson listens to me and thinks outside the box to make me feel better. I am so happy that I found them.

I suffered from acne for almost five years. It began during high school and and continued throughout my time in college. It was very uncomfortable and particularly difficult to handle socially. After trying a number of different prescriptions and seeing little to no relief, I was frustrated and willing to try anything to alleviate my condition. Some of the drugs and topical treatments severely dried my skin. I did not want to take any more prescription drugs and decided on a more natural approach to curing my acne. I was desperate for an effective solution to my problem. I came across Comprehensive Medical Services and was drawn to the many positive reviews regarding their acupuncture and herbal treatments. I was impressed with Hudson and Dr. Doyle and very comfortable with the treatments. In addition to acne, I also was suffering from anxiety concerning my condition and hot flashes during the day. Within a month of receiving acupuncture and taking the herbal tea formula, I felt calmer and more comfortable throughout the day. The redness in my face began to go away and by the end of my treatment period, I had virtually zero acne remaining. I was shocked and ecstatic with the results. My journey with CMS gave me greater confidence and left me with remarkably clearer skin. I am grateful to CMS for everything, and showing me the path to a healthier future, the natural way! They are very professional and dedicated to improving your health. I received counseling on my nutrition, monthly re-exams to evaluate my progress, and noted that my condition steadily improved with every visit. Today I am happy to say I have great skin with no significant acne. Going to CMS was by far the best decision I could have made regarding my health.

What brought me to CMS was a recurring back problem. My shoulders would cramp and spasm so badly that I could barely move without intense pain. I was referred to CMS after a trip to the Emergency Room at St Elizabeth’s Hospital. After only a handful of treatments, I began to feel a dramatic improvement, and after finishing the recommended treatment schedule, I haven’t had an incident with my shoulders since! All of the staff at CMS is very professional and pleasant, and you feel like you are actually heard, and you never feel like they are rushing through your appointment. They are accommodating of your schedule and are very attentive.

Before I move to the west coast I wanted to take some time to thank you all for your sincere and dedicated efforts at making your patients comfortable, satisfied, and healthy. Every time I walked in the door, I felt I was among friends—a unique experience for a medical establishment. Consequently, I sent a number of people to you for treatment, all of whom have experienced the same feeling that I have. My heartiest thanks to you all. Keep up the excellent work. I shall miss you.

When I left today I thought I may not have expressed sufficiently my pleasure in feeling considerably better due to your acupuncture help. I also appreciate that I was able to share about my needs and problems. I do not easily do this, but I had a sense you were empathetic and a good listener. Thanks again, see you next week!

For about 2-3 years now I have been suffering from chronic back pain caused and after trying everything short of surgery I decided to try acupuncture. I came across CMS from reading a few online reviews and decided to go ahead and give it a try. I am VERY pleased that I did. Dr. Doyle and Hudson took the time to identify not only the problems with my back, but also looked at other health problems I was experiencing. In the 3 months that I have been going there I have felt improvement in my back and find that the rest of my body has benefited. The entire staff at the office is beyond caring and my voice is always heard. Even if you are just thinking about acupuncture it’s worth giving CMS a try, I am confident you will not be disappointed!

I just wanted you to know that May 5 it will be 3 years that I have been smoke free. I can’t thank you enough for all your help.

I have had neck pain for many years. My doctor told me I needed surgery. Instead of surgery I decided to do acupuncture. After only a few treatments I started to get relief and after three months of treatment not only do I no longer have chronic pain but I am feeling much better overall, I can do yoga poses that I haven’t been able to do for twelve years, and I was able to avoid the surgery! My doctors also told me that I had incurable rosacea which caused me discomfort on my face, but this too is better. Thank you Doctors Doyle.

Dr. Doyle is the only Doctor!!! I have lower back problems/sciatica, and have for years. While Chiropractors are helpful, acupuncture is the solution to pain-free living……..I have learned so much from Dr. Doyle that I no longer live on ibuprofen…. So, if you are sick and tired of the way you feel, make an apt with Dr. Doyle and turn your life around! OR, go to your doctor and keep filling your prescriptions. If you keep on doing what you have done nothing will change, and that goes for your health too!!!!!!!!!!

I arrived at CMS looking for help with three problems: Visual Migraines, Gout Pain, and chronic lower back stiffness that limited my movement. After a course of acupuncture and herbs, my migraines have reduced in frequency by at least 80% and in severity as well. My gout pain used to be present for extended periods and severe enough to inhibit movement, but now the pain is occasional and momentary. Although my back stiffness is still frequently present, it no longer leads to spasms.

I had always been curious about acupuncture and its benefits, but hesitated to choose someone from the yellow pages. My massage therapist told me great things about Dr Doyle and Hudson Doyle. I have seen many doctors throughout the years, but…I have never met one who was as thorough as Dr Doyle…. he actually spent over an hour with me on my initial consultation to comprehensively understand my medical history. I wanted to focus on some specific issues that Western doctors had not been able to help me with: stomach problems, stress, anxiety and upper back pain, as well as overall health & wellbeing. From my first acupuncture appointment, Hudson made it clear that acupuncture can provide immediate relief from pain, but…it is more important to recognize the overall health and the underlying problems not just the symptoms presenting themselves. I cannot put into words what acupuncture has done for me. Simply put, I feel more grounded and have seen measurable improvements in so many ways…my digestive issues and anxiety have greatly improved, I feel much less stressed and my upper back pain has gone from a 7 to a 2 – and this is just in the 3 months of treatment! I can’t wait to see what the next 3 months has to offer… Not only am I now the biggest fan of acupuncture…but, I am also a huge fan of Hudson and Dr Doyle! If you are thinking of trying Acupuncture…do it! I’ve seen the results first hand.

A year ago, a number of events lead me to experience what a therapist diagnosed simply as, post-traumatic stress disorder. The symptoms were varying and scattered: memory loss, cognitive difficulties, panic, emotional/physical stress, worry, dizziness, neck spasms and pain, fatigue, and an overall sense of imbalance. Six months later, I was re-diagnosed with a chronic neurological movement disorder, Cervical Dystonia, an untreatable condition. I was left with an inability to walk, drive, stand up straight, and at times eat or swallow. I was told I’d have to spend the rest of my life managing these symptoms. Determined to find relief, I spent thousands of dollars on NSA, (light chiropractic touches thought to retrain the nervous system- a method considered highly effective in most cases). After over thirty treatments, with only one real remission from symptoms, I was told that my condition had not improved at all in its severity. Even after the evaluation with Dr. Doyle, I knew I was in good hands. He listened to everything as I explained it, and had insights and questions no other doctor had even considered taking the time to ask or wonder about. There was actually a goal, to treat the underlying condition. After one treatment with Hudson, my chiropractor was shocked at the improvement (he believed my case to be untreatable, and felt it would be a long time before I saw any real improvement in symptoms). Three treatments later, and the severity of the symptoms still have yet to return. My motion has improved remarkably, and for the first time in months I honestly believe I can have my life back. Thank you so much

After years of dealing with TMJ problems (clenching my teeth at night, waking up with tension headaches, and not sleeping well through the night), I finally decided to try acupuncture. A friend of a friend recommended Hudson and after only a short time, I am feeling SO much better. I have been sleeping through the night and waking up without any headaches. I have more energy throughout the day and I definitely feel more relaxed in my neck and shoulders. I look forward to my time with him every week knowing that I’m going to get to take 45 mins of my day to just relax! I think that not only is Hudson a great doctor, but he’s a great person and I immediately felt comfortable and trusted him. I definitely recommend him to anyone that wants to try acupuncture!?

I decided to seek out acupuncture treatment after having suffered severe TMJ pain for six months. The only treatment my dentist could recommend was using a night guard and taking ibuprofen. I was having 3 severe attacks a day, on average, taking 3 ibuprofen pills for each attack, one of the attacks usually waking me up from a sound sleep. Needless to say, I didn’t like all the medication I was taking and wanted to find a way to get rid of the pain. Acupuncture seemed like the natural avenue to explore, and it is one of the best decisions I ever made. After an initial appointment where I met with both Dr. Doyle and Hudson, I began bi-weekly treatments with Hudson, who also mixes Chinese Herbs for me to take to help with other issues. I especially liked the idea that we were not just addressing the pain that brought me to CMS, but working to improve my overall health. After a couple months of treatment the frequency and severity of the attacks lessened and before I knew it, I was pain-free. It’s been at least six weeks now since I have had any TMJ pain and I couldn’t be happier.
