I’ve been seeing Steve on and off for 3 years. Although I’m not on a regular schedule, I call as a last resort when I feel really beat up. I personally like Steve’s dry needling technique because dry needling provides relief almost instantaneously. Foam rolling, myofascial release and massage all take some time, but when Steve uses the dry needling technique he targets a muscle and gets it to release instantaneously. Steve also uses electric stim and regular acupuncture to help with recovery. At first I was nervous, but Steve is very calm and accommodating and will make sure to keep you as comfortable as possible. I’ve been to other acupuncturists and truly believe Steve is the best. I also feel more at ease because Steve is a physical therapist as well!
This was my first experience with acupuncture. Before I tried it, I was skeptical, but Eric Goldburd at Wrightstown Health and Fitness has turned me into a total believer. I honestly thought it was impossible for me to be free from tension, but you can literally see the reduction in tension of my neck and shoulder muscles.
My first appointment Eric took the time to do a thorough intake and get to know me. He has a calming and reassuring personality, and is truly a caring healer. The atmosphere is calming and relaxing, and I find his treatments relaxing and pain-free. I was amazed at the instant results. Not only did the results last beyond his treatments, but I found myself looking forward to coming back for more. I’m very results-oriented, so wouldn’t go back if it didn’t work, but I would recommend Eric Goldburd without hesitation.

Having injured myself at the age of 14 in a sports-related injury, I have tried numerous methods of pain management over the last 18 years and have been seeing Steve for acupuncture for the last 12 years. In that time, it has helped me increase my activity greatly. I am now a registered nurse and recently see Steve weekly for trigger point therapy for my chronic back pain, but have also had fantastic results with treating plantar fasciitis, allergies, and headaches. I look forward to my treatments with Steve, I know he’ll do anything he can to help relieve any pain – not to mention throwing in a few extra points for stress relief and relaxation!
Loved my first experience with acupuncture! I have been back here two times since. Eric took the time to thoroughly explain the entire process for me. I have six children and a full-time job. My stress levels are often high. Acupuncture served as a great method to help relieve stress tension. I also train at Wrightstown Health and Fitness and have used acupuncture to relieve tension in over worked muscle areas. Love love love! I will return here often.

It was such a joy to work with Steve this past off-season. He really seems to care about his patients, and he was always accommodating with his schedule. He is a true professional and I will definitely be working with him again in the future.
Amazing. Terrible Achilles tendonitis, Steve took care of it in only a few sessions. Off and running again! Relaxed atmosphere and great staff!
I tried acupuncture for the first time in my life at WHF and saw an amazing improvement in reduction of pain. Steve is great!! He spent the time with me to understand the problem and work hard to help me to improve. I was a skeptic at first but now I am a believer of the benefits of acupuncture.
As the owner of Wrightstown Health and Fitness, it is a great privilege to collaborate with two such talented acupuncturists. I’ve had sessions with both Eric and Steve and was never disappointed. Both practitioners possess a calm and reassuring demeanor that puts their clients instantly at ease.
Eric had an amazing ability to make me feel comfortable and he was very relatable. Due to my job as a personal trainer, I perform very strenuous physical activity on a daily basis. I came to Eric because of my tight IT band and, after my 30-minute session with him, I noticed that the tension was markedly reduced. Two weeks later, I can still feel the effects of my one session.
Steve’s experience as a physiotherapist stands him in good stead in his acupuncture work because it enables him to correctly and concisely communicate anatomy and physiology issues in a way that is understandable to every client. Steve specializes in trigger point acupuncture, and so I had him work on trigger points in my right shoulder that had bothered me from time to time. I felt relaxed and pain-free after my session.
In summary, I would highly recommend both acupuncturists as they really cover all bases when it comes to the benefits of acupuncture.
I’ve had acupuncture from both Steve and Eric. Both are gifted professionals and empathetic healers. Eric offers an interesting facial rejuvenation treatment that has offered good results for those I know who have tried it, and Steve’s background as a physical therapist really stands him in good stead for the trigger point acupuncture he offers to ease his clients’ aching muscles. I’d recommend both of them, and while you're at it try out the other services this wellness center offers, including a free week of personal training and a $45 first-time massage.
