Patient Testimonials

When I stumbled and fell on cement pathway I couldn’t walk. My attempt to do a couple of steps didn’t succeed and pain got excruciating. I thought I won’t be able to walk or end up in wheel chair. When I came to Dr. M. Nixon, he started a treatment immediately while gathering detailed information about the injury and pain. He carefully inserted needles and provided laser treatment. After a first treatment my pain began to turn from a “lion” to a “lamb”; after two treatments I dared to take a few steps with a cane. It was a huge labor, but I could do it! Every treatment Dr. Nixon monitored change in my condition, such as pain level, location, and etc. to tailor the right treatment. From session to session my improvement progressed dramatically. From the fifth treatment I manage to reduce my reliance on a cane. I started walking slowly and could do every day simple activities of which we simply are unaware in normal functioning - standing, bending, and dressing. Before I discovered AcuPainRelief Center I didn’t know anything about laser technology in medicine and was skeptical. However, this non-invasive treatment gets more and more usable. Dr. Nixon turned out to be one of the first practitioners and he is really a master in this field. I’m grateful to him for bringing me back to a normal life.

I saw Dr. Nixon first in 2013 for fertility issues. 3 children later, and now I have back problems. He successfully has treated my ailments and friends' ailments. Dr. Nixon prides himself on medical mysteries and is a friendly, honest and spiritual healer. I wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone.

My daughter was diagnosed with developmental delays and several neurological disorders, including hypotonia, starting at birth. As time went on and she was in physical, occupational, and speech therapies weekly, I was told to expect that she may never walk. She did therapy everyday for the first three years of her life, but she was formally evaluated once a month by a physical therapist. After one month of treatments for hypotonia through Dr. Nixon, the therapist commented that her muscle tone had significantly improved. The therapist asked what we had been doing, and I told her about the treatments with Dr. Nixon. In response, she has referred patients to him! My daughter is now 6 years old, and she functions as a healthy, happy little girl! She still has the conditions diagnosed at birth, but laser treatments with Dr. Nixon helped her to get so much better than the doctors and therapists anticipated. He has changed all our lives for the better! He was so good working with such a young patient, too. He clearly loves children and has photos of all his grandkids all over his office. What I found to be super special, though, was that he also prayed for my daughter. I now highly recommend him to everyone. In just my little world, he has turned a breech baby, healed chronic neck pain in 2 treatments, healed a broken rib in just 2 treatments, and significantly helped an arthritis flare up. Please give him a try. You won't regret it.

As a former neuro rehab therapist, I am especially appreciative of Deacon Mike’s excellent skills decrease pain and muscle rigidity in my left shoulder that had persisted about 7 months. I’ve made so much progress in four visits, my function has drastically increased and pain is gone. I am humbled by his skill and wholeheartedly recommend his care. And he’s a delightful human being, you will leave a better person!

My experience with Michael Nixon was pleasant from the very beginning to the end. He is extremely caring, and a genuine medical practitioner. He uses multiple modalities during the acupuncture session, all while explaining in great detail what is happening. I highly suggest getting a session with him.

-Amani B.

Had a great treatment at Acu Pain Relief Center after a recommendation from a friend. Not only was Dr. Nixon professional, but was extremely knowledgeable about my sports injury from a few years back. After two treatments my shoulder pain reduced significantly. By my fourth treatment my pain that I had felt for years had disappeared.

Wonderful experience! 7 doctor's said there was no hope for me to be able to open my eyes again due to severe bilateral blepharoah spasms. Today my eyes are fully open! I thank the Lord for Michael Nixon faithfully working on me. Once I was blind, but now I see!

-Judy H.

Words cannot begin to express my elation!! Michael Nixon is truly a Godsend. I have severe carpal tunnel syndrome and de quervein tendonitis in my wrist. I had such pain and had been losing sleep as a result. After one session I can feel my once very numb finger tips again. I have increased dexterity in my wrist again without writhing in pain. This man has nearly 4 decades of experience in healing people. I am just amazed. I received the low energy infrared laser treatment. If you feel hopeless like I did, go see Mr. Nixon!

At the end of last year, I returned from a golf trip. After being back for three days, I had a sudden onset of intense pain that was focused in my upper back. The pain was so severe that it led me to seek out treatment from my primary care physician. He gave me some pain medication and some muscle relaxers but ultimately was unable to help with the pain and referred me to a chiropractor. After a few visits, the chiropractor was unable to provide any lasting relief with my pain. At this point it was nearly two months of intense pain that was interrupting my sleep and impacting every aspect of my daily life. The chiropractor recommended that I seek out an acupuncturist. After some research, I was lucky to find Dr. Nixon and after just a few visits, the pain began to subside. I believe it ended up being a problem with my ulnar nerve which none of the previous physicians or chiropractors were able to diagnose. After further research, I began to realize how powerful and effective this form of treatment has proven for many people over centuries of practice. The key is finding someone who specializes in acupuncture. If you're in pain give Dr. Nixon a call. Thanks for helping me Dr. Nixon.

-Nathan S.

I felt at ease as soon as I walked in! Michael carefully explained every aspect of the procedure before we started and continued explaining everything that he was doing while the procedure was going on. I could not have asked for a better first experience with acupuncture and cannot wait to go back again! I immediately felt relief to a pain that has been bothering me for two months and am now a huge believer in it’s healing benefits.

-Rebecca H.

Mike is great! I have been to many acupuncturist in different USA states, but Mike has been the best of them all. More than a acupuncturist, he is a healer. He is very knowledgeable, compassionate and cares for your needs. I just moved to NC a few months ago and I wish I could find an acupuncturist up here like him. I truly recommend him.
