Live Patient Diary

Acupuncture is best explained by those being treated. Below are current diary excerpts from a patient being treated weekly. Late 20's, female, initially began treatment for anxiety, depression, and muscular pain. For more details I encourage you to speak with me privately during our session. 

After February of 2019, Patient no longer felt the level of anxiety as previously experienced. They are now going once a month for regular treatments.
