Testimonials

  • After years of “powering” through and trying to ignore the tight pain and grinding crunch in my neck each time I turned to look over my shoulder, I decided to try acupuncture. I had met Todd previously when he used his skill as a massage therapist and partnered with the trainer I was working with to successfully resolve my rotator cuff injury. So Todd was a natural choice and he did not disappoint😊 The “pain” lessened to “discomfort” after just 1 visit and after 3 I feel GREAT! The knot is gone and I can easily turn from side to side with full mobility. If you’ re considering acupuncture then Todd is the one to see!

  • Quality time with a true professional. Relieved incompasitating migraines and neck pain in one visit. Will be back again and again for health and wellness.
    My next area of concern were my hamstrings-identifying the true source of pain after years of decreased function and pain. (since 2009-I remember that day too well). I cant wait to get back to feeling like I can control my workouts. I can’t thank you enough for your time and expertise!

  • I called Todd when I was literally in a pinch with a neck injury that had flared up after exercising. I could barely turn my head which made it difficult to sleep, drive, work, etc. I had tried seeing other specialists when this happened to me in the past but Todd was the only one able to provide me with relief. He is punctual, professional and amazing at what he does. I am very grateful for his knowledge and expertise, thanks again Todd!
