Acupuncture that's not scary!
I was referred to Stephanie by my chiropractor for some back and jaw issues. I'd never tried acupuncture before, and was little nervous (I stopped donating blo0d to the Red Cross because I got teary-eyed just looking at the needles they use) about the needles. Stephanie was great at helping me feel comfortable, and I've discovered that it really doesn't hurt most of the time. Occasionally there's a little bit of a pinprick feeling that stings for a second, but nothing scary. In fact, going to see Stephanie is probably the most relaxing time of my week, and I've actually fallen asleep during a few different treatments! She has also done cupping on my back, which has helped loosen up my muscles and even my chiropractor has noticed the difference.

I love that I can go in to see Stephanie for my back and jaw, but if I'm having other problems she always is able to help. One day I had been experiencing knee pain at work and let her know that at the beginning of my appointment. By the time I left, the pain was gone! Before one treatment, I told her that I felt like I was coming down with a cold, and she prescribed Chinese herbs for me, which helped me get over the cold quickly.
The best part of Stephanie's practice is that she is absolutely committed to you taking part in your own health care. That, and she always has ridiculously bad jokes to tell you :) I've recommended Stephanie to my family and friends, even people who don't have a specific ailment. I think everyone could benefit from having her involved in their health, whether her role is to alleviate chronic pain, help overcome depression, or simply just to help you stay balanced.
