About Patty Kuchar
Pain is the body's sign telling us that something unnatural is occurring. Acupuncture can restore the smooth flow of energy and intervene on a process that may over time create greater dysfunction or disease, creating a physiological change in the body to correct the underlying problem.

What people are saying about Acupuncture Northwest
"After reading an ad in our local paper about relief of pain with acupuncture, I decided to try it. I asked my Doctor if he thought it might help me and he said “why not give it a try.” I’ve had 4 surgeries on my spine and the neurosurgeon said there was not any more he could help me with as the spinal problem was not going to go away. I was on heavy medication and taking stronger doses. I was never without pain. I made an appointment at Acupuncture Northwest with Patty Kuchar, L.Ac. Patty said she was sure she could help me. After receiving 3 treatments I realized I had found someone and something that was now going to help me. After 11 treatments I have been able to cut way back on my medication and do some of my yard work. I am free of almost all the pain and feel more relaxed, enjoying my life again without worry of pain stopping me; which is what I had been living with for many years. I’ll be forever thankful I found the ad and made that very important appointment. I found many other folks feel the same way I do about Patty and Acupuncture Northwest here in Longview, WA. If you need help, it is here for you, just try it; give it a real good chance. I am very happy I did my 11 treatments and will continue for my own well being. THANKS PATTY!!!"

"In 2002 I made an appointment with Patty Kuchar to see if acupuncture could relieve a chronic back pain. After nine months of treatments the back pain is less severe and I've reduced the amount of pain medicine I take each day.
The past two months she has also treated me for bronchial and serious asthma condition that I've had for years. I'm happy to report I've seen dramatic improvement in my breathing. This is the first spring in many years that I haven't been congested in my sinuses and my lungs. On May 20, 2003 I had my annual physical and the doctor could not detect any congestion. He said, "Your lungs are clear!"
I am still taking my prescription medication but at a reduced amount. I feel the significant changes have been brought about by my monthly treatments from Patty. I'd highly recommend giving Patty a call and schedule an appointment and consultation."
