Highly recommended. I'm a fan! Professional, calm, and a place truly for healing.
I was experiencing real stress for the past month or so and made a decision to give acupuncture a shot. It was my first experience with acupuncture, and a great one. The acupuncture lasted about 40 minutes, with most of that time devoted to permitting the needles to do their magic. The ambience was calm and relaxing and I felt an alteration in my stress levels almost instantly. Without any doubt, I recommend trying it.
I really am grateful how they have helped me gain relief. Wonderfully relaxing.
