When it comes to acupuncture, and the benefits that you can receive from treatment, don't just listen to what we have to say, read what our patients have to say about the work that we've done with them.
"Anyone that questions the effectiveness of acupuncture needs to continue reading. I’m here to tell you that not only does it work; it works more quickly and effectively than any kind of “Western Medicine”!
12 weeks ago I made an appointment with Murrysville Acupuncture out of sheer desperation. My thumb, index finger and middle finger on my right hand were stiff and somewhat numb. I would awaken during the night in excruciating pain because my hand and arm had fallen asleep. Writing had become a challenge and I was no longer able to enjoy my hobby of crocheting. I had been to several doctors and chiropractors over a period of 2 years. They gave me minimal, temporary relief. A friend of my told me about his success with acupuncture and I decided that I had nothing to lose by trying it.
Brandy listened carefully to my problems and explained in detail what she was going to do and how she was going to do it. The only surprise was that after just the first treatment, I slept the whole night pain free. The subsequent treatments have restored the dexterity in those 3 fingers. Once again I have feeling in those fingers. Not only am I able to write legibly again, I am able to perform any task I want with my right hand.
While treating my finger and hand issue, I mentioned to Brandy that I had been in an auto accident 40 years ago that caused me to lose the ability to fully turn my head to the left. After just one treatment to address that problem, I now have a full range of motion when I turn my head to either the left or right.
Brandy has treated a few other “aches and pains” for me quite successfully. The one treatment that truly pleasantly surprised me was the relief she has given my sinuses due to fall allergies! Decongestants are now an expense of the past!
I now feel like I’m a “poster-child” for acupuncture. I sleep better and have more energy than I have in years. I tell anyone that I can get to listen about my successes with these treatments. If you have any questions or would like to speak to me personally, please contact Brandy. She has my permission to give out my email address. Hope to hear from lots of people in need of good health!

“I highly recommend Murrysville Acupuncture!”

"As a student and practitioner of Western medicine I was skeptical about the benefits and value of acupuncture. For two years I suffered from progressive sinus inflammation and headaches and had tried over the counter solutions as well as the consult and medical recommendations of an ear, nose, and throat physician. Frustrated by the lack of results, growing discomfort, and chronic fatigue, I began regular appointments with Brandy Maupin. As a person with a longstanding fear of needles I was amazed how her accurate and caring technique relieved my fears. By the second appointment I started to experience relief and improvements were noticed every visit thereafter to the point where I no longer required any medication for sinusitis. My stress level was also noticeably lower following the appointments and I had more energy. I only wish I had pursued acupuncture as a first line treatment for sinusitis and not as a last resort – life would have been better sooner."
"As a skeptic by nature, I was of course skeptical as to whether acupuncture was a state of mind or actually did make an internal physical change to one’s body. After working with Brandy for several weeks for various symptoms such as: anxiety, sleep deprivation, cravings and constipation, I found relief in all of the mentioned areas. Brandy was very thorough and truly took the time to listen. I always felt as if I was in good hands and for a skeptic as I tend to be, that says a lot!! Brandy has made me a true believer in alternative medicine. I now find the holistic approach to be my first choice. It is amazing how much better I feel since she has guided me in this direction. I am and will always be grateful for her expertise.
Brandy's treatment has made significant improvement in my carpal tunnel pain and symptoms. Prior to acupuncture, I was not able to use my wrist without pain and discomfort. I would wake up with numbness and pins and needle sensations in my hand. In fact, the numbness was so bad that I could not differentiate between hot and cold water. I was sleeping in a wrist brace, taking large amounts of ibuprofen and got no relief.
Brandy did a thorough assessment of my symptoms and we discussed the treatment to follow. After the first session, I experienced positive changes. By the third session, I no longer needed the brace and I was able to sleep the night through without waking up with numbness and discomfort. I am now able to use my hand and wrist all day with absolutely no pain.
I have been so impressed with Brandy that anytime I hear someone complaining of ailments or pain, I have to share my success story. Highly recommended!
I have been struggling with eczema on my hands for years. I have tried every conventional and alternative approach possible with only minimal and temporary improvement. After speaking with Brandy about my symptoms and triggers, she felt she could help. I decided to try because I know enough about acupuncture to know that it could work, and if it didn’t work, there would be no adverse side effects. After a series of sessions with Brandy, my symptoms improved dramatically. I occasionally get a break out, but it is mild and short-lived. I have recommended Brandy to a number of people. She is very easy to work with and does a great job informing her patients what she is doing and why she is doing it. If you have any reservations whatsoever about trying acupuncture, let them go. Like I said, it might work for you and if it doesn’t, it does no harm.
