Testimonials for Jamie


“I really appreciate all of your work and greatly enjoyed the sessions we had over a years time. I truly learned so much from you and liked gaining knowledge about muscles and how the body works. I am still practicing some of the stretches you taught me. You are an inspiration, which is why I am writing. I just recently went to another career preview at East West College of Healing Arts.”

Testimonials for Natasha


“Tasha is a wonderful acupuncturist. I’ve had acupuncture throughout the country, over many years, and Tasha is among the best. Not only is she highly skilled, she creates a nurturing, caring, and warm atmosphere where healing can take place on many levels. I started going for treatments of an arthritic thumb and after 6 weeks the pain has been cut at least 75% and is only sporadic. We are also working on other areas of body and mind that need attention/treatment. I always leave feeling uplifted, stress-free, and buoyant. I feel very lucky that I found Tasha and would recommend her to everyone.”

—S.H.
