Acupuncture is one of the fastest growing medicines in the country. It is effective and safe. That’s why it has been successfully used by millions of people over thousands of years. After an acupuncture treatment, patients report feeling a deep sense of relaxation and ease. After several acupuncture treatments over a designated amount of time, patients report a decrease in their symptoms,  less physical pain, and a peculiar sense of internal ease and overall wellness.

Testimonials

 


I can’t say enough about Bec. I came in as a patient looking for fertility support as I have PCOS and was trying to conceive naturally for almost a year. Working very closely with Bec to monitor my cycle, we were able to get ovulation on track and get more importantly get pregnant!! It took us 2 months of regular treatment (2x/week). It was honestly the most amazing and positive experience I’ve ever had with a practitioner. Her attention to detail, willingness to research & explore paths unknown, and her emotional support through the journey are paramount. I would highly recommend Bec for any services for acupuncture treatment, but especially if you’re dealing with any fertility concerns. I credit her for “getting me pregnant” even though I know my partner had something to do with it as well…but seriously, how do you even begin to thank you some one who has helped give you life’s greatest gift. –Jenn, 2018


Over the last school year, Bec has been an integral part of my life. As a recently diagnosed Type 2 diabetic, she has helped me manage my blood sugar and stave off medication use for as long as possible. I am also a runner, and with that comes occasional muscle, joint, and tendon pain. Bec helped me manage that in order to reach my running goals. Finally, this was a particularly stressful school year for me as a teacher, and Bec helped me remain centered and well-balanced. I would recommend Bec to anyone who is looking for quality care. –Amy, 2017


I went to Bec with severe lower back pain, neck pain, and arm pain. Whatever Bec did it helped with relieving the majority of my pain. With Bec’s help I am now living life again. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering acupuncture. -Joe, 2017


Bec has been such an amazing practitioner and I have received great treatments from her. Bec creates a safe space to share and is full of compassion. I remember when there was a time when I was truly undecided regarding a certain path to choose in a difficult situation. She carefully chose a treatment plan to help me see the big picture and left me with a sense of peace and feeling understood. I would eagerly recommend Bec to any of my family or friends. –Heather, 2017


Bec trusts and therefore she can be trusted. She feels deeply with her generous heart and gives of herself freely in her healing endeavors. –Lisa, 2017
