“I’ve struggled with multi-level arthritis for many years, and it has debilitated me to a certain degree. I had to stop playing sports which was my only means of exercise, and I had to seek out methods that would limit or reduce my pain and allow me to carry out my daily functions. I find it challenging to take pain medications or prescribed medications so seeking out a holistic approach was my next option. After several consistent treatments, acupuncture helped reduce the inflammation, and I was able to increase my activities and function with limited pain. I recommend this treatment to anyone who is a skeptic or who is challenged with pain on a daily basis.” I. Ledesma
