What Patients Say

Chronic Pain All But Gone! I have been receiving acupuncture from Mary Jean to treat chronic neck pain I have suffered with for over 6 years. I am so happy to report that I am having days with very little pain! I am thrilled at the progress we have made and for the first time in YEARS I feel hopeful that I can get to a place where I am pain free. What a gift. Mary Jean is so knowledgeable, thorough, and easy to work with. I am so thankful for her and the energy she has put in to helping me heal!
