Rachel said:

“Being healthy and getting into our optimal health… it takes some work, but the pay-off is really great.”

“When we’re doing acupuncture, it’s really a great way to balance out the entire whole person. We’re not really working on just one symptom picture but we’re actually taking that whole person into consideration.”
