“I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate the acupuncture sessions I had. I had become very stuck in some negative emotions – mainly anger and sadness and was very irritable. I realized this and was concerned for the health of my relationships, especially with my husband, and for the enjoyment of our cruise together.

After my first session, I felt very calm, not stressed, worried or angry and sad. The second session helped me feel not irritable and testy.”
– Marshall

I loved my first acupuncture session. The office is welcoming and the waiting area was clean and calming.
I did not know exactly what to expect and Edmund made me feel at ease and comfortable. He explained everything we would be doing during the session and explained the concept of Chinese Medicine.
I left my appointment feeling very relaxed and calm.
