Lenice Balier’s Pain Relief Story

“I was fortunate to hear Edmund Gibson at one of his Seminars. I was so impressed. I booked on for 3 treatments.

Francesca’s Story of Pain Relief

“Dr. Ruonan Zhang has been my savior. I had a chronic case of Sciatica and Piriformis syndrome that causes me to experience excruciating and unyielding pain for over a year and a half.
