Dearest Megan, the treatment you gave me was the most amazing experience. For the first time in so long I was at peace in my body and mind. Slipping through levels of consciousness that were powerful, peaceful and safe. Thank you so much! I'll see you in a few days for another.
Thank you Megan for listening to me and my body. I deal with pain & numbness in my calf, ankle & toes due to a bulging L4-5 disc. Your great care helped me have a great vacation. I hiked 6-9 miles a day...with a 15 pound backpack...for 6 days...with NO PAIN! Your care is so appreciated, thank you for helping me in such a compassionate way! Your love of your job is excellent!

I just wanted to say Thank You for all the treatements prior to & throughout my pregnancy! I could not have wished for an easier pregnancy or faster birth & I credit much of both to acupuncture. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Chinese Medicine can be great for kids and they often respond very quickly to treatment. We can utilize several modalities; shoneshin-utilizing small tools that do not puncture the skin, a point stimulator that puts off a nearly undetectable electric pulse, needles or herbs.
How do I even begin to thank someone who has given us back our son?! The very first time we came, he was in the middle of a flare. He was crying, begging "help me" with such desperation in his eyes. He could only "parrot talk". "No" & "yes" responses weren't even happening. After that very first appointment, we went to the store. He looked at me and said "Mom, I feel so good." That was the first organic sentence I heard my little boy say since the whole nightmare began...
It was not even 8 weeks into seeing you, & I will never forget it. My husband & I whipered to each other with tears in our eyes, "we have our son back." I fully credit you for that!! What an amazing gift!... Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my soul.
Thank you for the acupuncture and direction with Qigong, I benefited so much. But what was the most fun for me was grasping the Chinese view of the 5 elements & seasons. I am set free from decades of winter "in my mind". Winter is once again a season of delight not depressed dark days, but a time to retreat, rebuild, restore & "germinate"... Again, from my more whole & more well self, Thank you.
An Eastern Medicine bodywork on Acupunture points, usually on the clients back. Not really for relaxation but more about intensely moving stagnation that has built up in the body.
