Testimonials

The testimonials below are given exactly as written, except the authorship has been reduced to initials only.

AB: Chris brings a lifetime of experience to the field of Oriental Medicine. It seems he has found his calling within this profession and I would highly recommend that anyone seeking help reach out to Chris. His attention to detail and true desire to help others sets him a step above the rest while his caring nature combined with analytical thinking speak to who he is as a practitioner, as well as a person. Laramie, WY is lucky to have him.

AM: The Heavenly Emperor herbs are genius. When would be a good time for me to stop in and buy another bottle? They really have helped to moderate my stress and better my sleep. Thank you.

BB: Feel very comfortable asking questions knowing I get thoughtful, knowledgeable responses.

BC: It has been my experience in receiving acupuncture, that Chris has the ability to connect with his clients in a caring way that goes beyond the skill & knowledge he has acquired for the physical placing of acupuncture needles. As one of his clients, I have experienced his ability to treat the "whole person", mind, body and spirit, and to facilitate self-healing. I also found his ability to treat my hip & shoulder injuries eased the pain and allowed for deeper healing.

BJ: Chris has always focused on helping others achieve their own potential. A strong mix of personal and academic skills honed through practical experience and tireless dedication, I heartily recommend Chris for anyone looking to further develop themselves in a holistic manner.

CA: Chris is a talented healer and kind soul who helped me immensely in a short time. I came to him for a few visits while stopping in Laramie for the summer, with issues of anxiety, stress, an underactive thyroid, and neck and shoulder pain. With attentiveness, patience, and close listening, Chris helped me feel better through his acupuncture after just a few weeks. I am so grateful our paths crossed!

CB: Don't look any further than Dr. Chris Dewey for your treatment. He is a phenomenal acupuncturist. He's also an amazing life coach after having spent decades as a Professor of Micropalaeontology. He's had some incredible experiences which he might divulge if you ask nicely. Truly a master of many disciplines. He instantly relieved me of strange internal heat I'd been feeling and after a few sessions, mostly cured me of other strange symptoms I was grappling with. He was the only one who understood what was going on. My ailment had stumped every Western doc I visited. He also recommended changes to my diet, offered advice on nutrition, herbs, and patiently and painstakingly shared the Chinese holistic approach that helped immensely. I live in California but I will travel to him after my experience for treatment, because he's the only one who helped me. I recommend him without reservation.

CS1: Real deal healer! A true healer; he listens, takes consideration and time with his clients. Everyone is important to him and that is clear when you visit him as he makes you feel important. He cares! He is very knowledgeable not only about the human body and its anatomy, but also in the human spirit and teachings to heal and guide all. I went in with serious health problems that were debilitating. I didn't know how to fix them or why it was happening. All I knew was my physical symptoms. I had really bad pain in my ovaries and had been dealing with ovarian cysts for quite some time. It got so bad that I couldn't even lift simple items or exert myself in anyway including, working out, without seriously worse pain following. Not to mention thyroid and hormone balance issues. At a loss of what to do and financially strapped, I couldn't afford to go to the Dr yet again to be told there's not much they can do and what they could do would take a long time of testing and medication or even another surgery. After spending thousands already, I just couldn't afford to do that right now. So two confidants referred me to Chris Dewey at Thirdpathway Acupuncture. Despite not wanting to be poked with more needles, I was weak. So I called Thirdpathway Acupuncture and got in later that day and I am truly amazed and forever grateful that I did go to Chris! After my very first appointment ever, my whole body was on the path to healing! Just 3 days later my pain was gone completely and all my other associated symptoms were gone! I am a regular patient now working on healing my whole body and spirit!

CS2: Thank you Chris. I can't believe how good l felt after the treatment yesterday. Amazing. Also thank you for listening. I felt like l was actually being heard. A rare commodity these days.

DB1: Chris was recommended to me by a co-worker - after three weeks of trying to deal with excruciating pain to my knees and hamstring (due to that wonderful elliptical machine). Chris truly cares! I found him to be extremely professional, considerate and after three visits with Chris my pain was gone and I can walk again. I did find out that I have arthritis in my knees and going forward will visit Chris regularly to help keep ahead of the game. All I can say, if you are dealing with any kind of malady - go see Chris!

DB2: Dr. Chris Dewey changed my life... or at least improved it to the point where I can wear shoes of any type once again. I visited him in the hopes that acupuncture could relieve the pain of bunions, and instead discovered that they could be completely removed in just two sessions. In addition, I had painful arthritic swelling in my finger joints and those too were relieved and have virtually disappeared. I would highly recommend Chris Dewey to all who desire a speedy resolution and pain relief for these ailments.

DM: After having had TMJ issues and misguided dental work, I struggled with jaw pain and chronic inflammation for over 10 years. A good dentist adjusted my bite and brought the pain level down tremendously, but unless I took Advil (or a prescription drug) the sides of my face stayed swollen just enough to keep me uncomfortable and unable to get restorative sleep. I had resigned myself to taking Advil the rest of my life...knowing it might eventually cause other problems. But then my neighbor suggested acupuncture, and she had heard good things about Dr Chris Dewey. I was impressed by his website and his manner but I really wasn’t expecting any miracles. I’m not always comfortable in a clinical setting so I was surprised that I actually fell asleep during my first treatment! (His office is professional but very relaxing). A few months later I can hardly believe the difference: no pain or swelling in either jaw; I’m able to sleep at night without the help of Advil or prescription drugs; and I’m hopeful my jaw muscles are relaxed enough to finally stabilize my bite! I’m lucky to have found in Dr Dewey someone willing to listen to my complicated dental history and other assorted health issues and then again prior to each treatment with such focus that each session is restorative in some way. I just can’t get over that his acupuncture treatments could make my chronic jaw inflammation go away. It feels like a miracle to me!

EC: Whatever you did for stress at the appointment this week was spot on. I've been able to focus, I've gotten tons done, and it's felt effortless. Thank you!

JB: Chris has used his acupuncture skills to help me over come shakes or tremors from familial or essential tremors. I noticed an immediate change after my first treatment. Chris recommended herbs to go along with the acupuncture treatments. Today, I am able to do activities that require fine motors skills such as typing, writing, electric wiring, etc. I would recommend Chris, and will continue to use him as part of my on-going treatment process for the essential tremors.

JD: This herbal coptis formula is pretty amazing. I got it from you to delay an impending root canal for a few weeks until it fit my schedule. Six months later I am still delaying the root canal and I haven't finished the bottle! Thank you!

JK: After having worked with Chris as a co-partner for my health care (for a while) to address various health issues, I have found that now seeing him once a month (on a regular ongoing basis) keeps my body balanced and rejuvenated. If an issue does arise, we can focus on it immediately. I would say that working with him has improved my general health as well as my overall well-being. Chris is very knowledgeable, personable, respectful, client centered and caring. I am thankful that he is in Laramie and I don't have to travel any great distance to get this quality of care. I am grateful that our paths have crossed.

JS1: 1. I’ve had no burning, tingling, nor numbness in my fingers since today’s treatment. There is noticeably less pain in both wrists/hands. It makes me feel hopeful my problem could be managed without ingesting damaging drugs. 2. After two treatments my hands have both nearly returned to normal dimensions. There is still sufficient inflammation to justify 800 mg ibuprofen and 1000 mg acetaminophen every 6 hours. I’m hopeful I’ll be pain free tomorrow as the pain is less this evening than this morning. I’m sure my increased prednisone (20 mg) figures into the equation. But I’ve never had a RA flare subside so quickly.

JS2: I decided to give acupuncture a try as another attempt to find relief for lower back pain that I have been dealing with for nearly 10 years, and after witnessing first hand, the nearly immediate results Chris produced with my 91-year-old father, but having no idea what an integral part acupuncture and Chris Dewey would play in the most difficult time of my life. At my initial appointment, it was obvious Chris was passionate about Chinese Medicine and even more passionate about helping people feel better physically and mentally; which I now know go hand in hand. Within weeks of seeing Chris for the first time, my Mother was in the beginning stages of heart and kidney failure; which in just a short two months took her life. One week later my Dad had a stroke and is now in hospice. Now, more than ever, I needed physical and more importantly mental/emotional help. Each week Chris would compassionately and patiently listen to how my week had gone, how I was feeling and what emotions I was dealing with and believe me, they were all over the chart and many times, off the chart. He would then do his “magic” with the needles, answering all my questions about “why there?” and “what will that do?” My back pain continues to get less and less and my mental and emotions are ALWAYS back in check by the next day. This difficult journey is not yet over, but I know Chris will be there each week to keep me on track. I have never, at any time in my life, had a Practitioner so caring, kind, and patient, (these are not qualities you can turn on and off…this is who Chris is), not to mention effective in his treatments.

JS2 for RS: I can't say enough about Chris Dewey as a practitioner and as a person. My 91 year-old father had been suffering with neuropathy which was making it very difficult to even get up from a chair. Not knowing anything about acupuncture, I thought he should at least give it a try; he was agreeable. After just the first treatment, Dad felt “different”, after the second treatment, the feeling in his calves was starting to come back; each week brought more healing. Along the way, Chris treated Dad for pain in his hands as well, with tremendous success. Following a stroke, Dad lost all movement in his right arm and hand and is now in hospice care. Chris made a road trip to treat Dad for this and by the end of the treatment, Dad had full range of motion in his arm and his hand is functioning again. Chris’ kindness, compassion, patience, understanding and sense of humor are just icing on the cake and something I have never seen in a [health care] practitioner of any kind; Dad always looks forward to seeing Chris who continues to “check-up” on Dad…..[Chris] truly and honestly cares about his clients and what he does works!!

KP: Chris is a soulful healer, gifted teacher, and thoughtful coach. You'll always find yourself in a better way after spending time with him.

LH: Chris is a talented acupuncturist and herbalist. He provides patient-centered care with respect and dignity. Whether you seek health and well-being or need help in overcoming health issues, give Chris a call!

MB: Chris, thank you for the very helpful care. Since seeing you, my life is more restful and balanced. It is difficult to describe - but there is more peace, patience and creativity in my days. Many thanks for this and also for the incredible balance and radiance I see and sense in [my daughter], which adds to my well being also.

MC1: Chris is an excellent practitioner whose deep knowledge base coupled with his excellent personal interaction skills makes him one of the best. I would recommend Chris for any health concern or need you may have, you will not be disappointed.

MC2: I highly recommend Chris. I have known Chris for years and he is absolutely dedicated to the wellness of others.

MR: After seeing Chris for almost five months I feel like a different person. I'd had several friends tell me of their success with Chris and I was hopeful he could help me with the things I was dealing with - anxiety, depression, poor sleep, fatigue, and hormonal issues - but didn't expect the results I've experienced. I've felt steady improvement and have much more energy, a brighter mood and outlook, am sleeping through the night, and have no hot flashes. Chris truly cares about his clients and I highly recommend him.

PF: I trust Chris so much. His care and simplicity yet wisdom always make such a difference. Not to mention his natural and medical excellence, knowledge and expertise.

RA: Chris is the best! He truly cares and takes the time to explain anything you want to know. I have anxiety issues and a needle phobia and his calm, knowledge and caring very quickly won my trust. I felt very safe and calm and enjoyed my sessions. For 30 years, I never had a regular period. No matter what doctors did or what medicines they put me on it was always 3 to 9 months between my periods. After several months of weekly treatments my cycle is completely regular every month!

RD: I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the support you have given me in getting my health back! Words are difficult to express my gratitude to you, your wisdom and skill that you have to understand my health, and what needed to be done to bring it back! Thank you for your kind and caring heart! I am thrilled with the difference I am feeling now!

SD: I have worked with Chris previously and found him to be extremely conscientious and caring. He works very hard for his patients and is intent on providing high quality service to them. Laramie is lucky to have him.

SM: I found Chris while I was researching some Chinese medical information for my clinic as I am also an acupuncturist. I was very impressed with his life experience and his deep devotion to the medicine and all his other studies, occupations and hobbies. I signed up for some coaching with him as I am early in my career and needed some help with self-confidence. Chris listened intently and gave me tools to implement and practice daily. Under his guidance, I was able to dig deep, create a new way of being (perceiving myself) and reshape the way I engage with my own patients. His advice will be with me for as long as my career! I honestly cannot find the words to express my gratitude. He is very perceptive, extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. I can feel in my heart he truly cares about making a difference with every and anyone with whom he interacts. He is an inspiration. Thank you, Chris!

SP: This is a doctor of Acupuncture and Asian medicine you can trust. He has done the work to make him a great healer.

TV: I was somewhat leery of my first " unconventional" treatment, and was pleasantly surprised by both the professional atmosphere and attitude of my practitioner. I have already experienced positive results and look forward to my next treatment.
