All the staff there are professional but personable, they really understand the link between muscle tension and the need for emotional release. They understand the use of different techniques for what your body needs. I really enjoy the experience.Rebecca W. Acupuncture

The acupuncture has released much stress for me total body and mind. I look forward to future treatments and continued progress in my healing areas that have been established.Jeff D. Back Pain
I go for acupuncture, cupping and "dry needling". I've worked with Amber and Jeff and they're both great! I've found good rejuvenation of my energy with acupuncture and great pain reduction with dry needling and cupping. Making an appointment is very easy and its in a good location. Definitely been great for my fibromyalgia pain reduction and other chronic pain disorders.David T. Fibromyalgia Pain
This is my first experience with acupuncture, and I'm extremely pleased. In just a few short weeks my pain has dropped by half, much better than we expected. The facility is very clean and comfortable, and the staff is friendly and efficient. Jeff is a great provider, very thorough and ready to adapt to whatever is going on. He sent me to my personal physician for an unrelated condition and we were able to nip something in the bud. I'll be back for sure.Katherine J. Acupuncture for Pain
