Amazing. Would recommend this place they have changed my health around more than I could have imagined. Thank you so much. Good prices.

The doctor here was one of the most amazing ever! I have used acupuncture before. However, this doctor assessed correctly the problem unlike my Western doctor who told me is a chronic pain that will not go away. Both with needles and some chinese medicine the doctor here helped me. I was not able to move my arm. I came in and in three days he did exactly what he said: he healed my arm. Thank you so much for the amazing work you do!
