After 3 sessions of acupuncture, I saw a remarkable difference in my stress levels, anxiety and headaches. Also, Claire was very knowledgeable and created a very calming environment during our sessions.

Claire was wonderful. She is very knowledgable, friendly and professional. This was my first experience with acupuncture and I intend to continue as I feel that the combination of medicine, chiropractic, massage and acupuncture will keep my chronic back pain under control. Thank you!

I signed up for 3 sessions. After the 1st session my back pain was greatly reduced (about 75%) and after 3 sessions I have almost no pain or stiffness. Claire was very professional, informative and pleasant. I would recommend to anyone suffering with pain to give acupuncture/Claire a try.
