“Samantha’s personalized treatment has helped me stay active and pain-free while I was getting in shape to compete in a half Ironman within ten months after delivering a baby. She knows how to treat the issues I had leading up to and after delivery, and focused on helping my body transition and adjust. Her acupuncture treatments always make me feel more alert, light, and ready to go as if I were a car and got an inspection level 2 oil change. I highly recommend!!” -Jen R.
