I found myself curious about acupuncture after I had heard several friends talking about their own personal experiences, and also after a very close family friend and Doctor suggested I try it. I was curious but skeptical at best. So mostly out of curiosity I set up an appointment with Rachel. I really liked acupuncture and Rachel from the beginning. Rachel taught me to think about by body and how it was functioning more thoroughly. I was a relatively healthy person before starting acupuncture but quickly realized I had been ignoring signs that my body wasn’t working the way it should be. I had issues with my digestion that I hadn’t acknowledged until Rachel starting asking me questions. By the end of the summer I was in the hospital having emergency surgery for a twisted intestine. My body had been telling me for quite some time that something wasn’t right. After 6 months and 1 major surgery I couldn’t imagine not having Rachel and acupuncture as a part of my healing process and health maintenance routine. She has helped me to heal and to understand how my body is working and what it needs to stay happy and healthy. Rachel is amazing.
