With a compassionate spirit and gentle technique clients appreciate, she puts those afraid of needles at ease. She has experience with treating a wide range of issues including: cancer, depression, anxiety, stress, women’s health, fertility, digestive problems, allergies, PTSD, pain, migraines, sciatica, and insomnia.
