Deep Tissue Laser Therapy has become preferred by those who have long sought relief without success. Its ability to impact pain on a cellular level provides pain relief for complex and simple conditions alike.
“6 months ago (November 2018) Dr. Steve Gooding from the Good Life Healing Center came to our work place to talk about acupuncture and natural medicines for chronic illness. Honestly, I didn’t know much about acupuncture. After the presentation I talked with Dr. Steve about his services on skin care and weight loss. I decided to give it a try. My first appointment with Dr. Steve went very well. He told me more about acupuncture and what he was going to do. He asked me to give him 6 weeks to help me with my dermatitis and start on my weight loss (started at 318). After 6 weeks my dermatitis that I’ve had since 1985 was almost gone and I had lost 25 lbs. I have been heavy ever since getting out of the service in 1987. I have continued my visits with Dr. Steve and as of... Read more »
“I first met Steve at an educational luncheon, they provided at King Middle School 2 years ago. I went for the free lunch and I quickly became very intrigued with their methods and philosophies at the luncheon. As a sufferer of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I had become discouraged with the Western Medicine approach to my ailment. I had stopped taking any of my previously prescribed medicines because they were not providing any relief for my symptoms, but I endured plenty of side effects from the medication. I stopped going to doctors because they wanted to continue to put me through a plethora of medical tests that I had already endured and completed in the past. I just suffered in silence, thinking no one would be able to help me.
I felt great after my first couple of sessions of acupuncture and I was feeling... Read more »
“My son and I LOVE Good Life. My son used to have terrible allergies but since going to see Steve and Cathy for Acupuncture his symptoms have disappeared! If we miss his routine visits they start to flare up again. My son is 8 and loves going – no pain and very relaxing. We are so lucky to go to this wonderful office. The staff is so friendly and accommodating.”

My name is Chris, I had a bad accident that aggravated a congenital defect I had in my lower spine. For a few years, I tried the same things – take pain meds, get steroid injections the whole run around that pain management offices always give. The VA suggested that I try acupuncture. At first I was a bit skeptical but I wanted to try something that was nonsurgical and to stop taking the steroid shots as they didn’t last all that long. So as I started to go see Dr. Gooding and his staff, I noticed I was able to start moving easier, the dull pain that I always felt was starting to become less and less. It’s been almost a year now and I look forward to having my visits because I know I will feel better afterwards.

The very BEST procedure I ever tried to eliminate pain as a result of a car accident and a bathtub fall. I’m so relaxed once the needles are all in that most times I fall asleep and feel like I’m in a different zone.
I would HIGHLY recommend this office even if you have other issues. Acupuncture is more than just needles.

My experience with Dr. Gooding and Dr. Hoffman at Good Life Healing Center has been therapeutic both mentally and physically. I have been experiencing chronic pain for years and finally decided to incorporate acupuncture into my life. This eastern approach toward healing the body along with modern medicine seem to be the solution I have been searching so desperately for. I love how at Good Life Healing they take the “whole patient” into consideration. It is often “lost” on many physicians that our mind and body are connected. Acupuncture aids joining the two together to create health and well-being. Acupuncture is a “natural medicine” that can treat a variety of conditions from digestive issues to even everyday stress and anxiety. I have been so happy and impressed with my personal results that I want to share my experience with my friends and let you see how acupuncture can... Read more »

I am so pleased to have found Good Life Healing. I have had serious back problems for many years. Was told by other doctors that there was nothing that could be done to help me. I have received 6 acupuncture treatments and am now starting to see results with less pain. I am on an on-going process at this time, but know that, in time, I will only need maintained appointments. The staff and doctors are very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. They work with you and treat you like you deserve and will do anything to work around your schedule for you appointments. They have been a Godsend. Cathy Hoffman is my acupuncturist and she is amazing and has done wonders for my back.

There seldom is a week that passes when I don’t have an opportunity to share my positive experiences about Good Life Healing Center. I had never tried acupuncture and honestly only went to the first session to support a work colleague who had scheduled this opportunity. We decided to focus on my arthritic pain in my feet – so glad I was led to this experience because – guess what – “I seldom have any pain in my feet!!!”The staff is polite, cordial, confidential and fun – and the results are amazing!

Steve has been wonderful listening to all concerns that I have regarding my daughter’s overall health and my own, often making very helpful and educated suggestions to further assist our needs. My daughter has found relief from seasonal allergies and congestion, and increased energy. I have been having issues with plantar fasciitis and have definitely seen an improvement after just three sessions. It is amazing the sensations you can feel during acupuncture! Definitely worth giving a try to see how this treatment can help your well being, and Steve is a calming, wonderful person to explore this valuable, natural method on your journey to better health.

As a loyal client for the past several years I have personally experienced the difference acupuncture treatments make on your overall Health. Being a person who suffered multiple food allergies for several years while unsuccessfully trying the traditional methods of treatment, a good friend suggested I try acupuncture. May I say it has made the all difference for me! The caring staff always listen to your concerns and needs and then work with you to develop the appropriate line of treatment designed just for you! My allergies have been drastically reduced and my overall health is substantially better. Many thanks to Steve Gooding and the great staff at Good Life Healing Center! Melanie U.
