“Laurel has been working with me for a couple of years administering acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion. Having suffered from multiple back and neck injuries, she was able to bring upon strong emotional releases after sessions, and relief from severe discomfort especially around my hip and lower back areas. I would recommend her to anyone seeking alternative therapies from western medicine.”
