  • Ayden's Story

    It's not every day that you get to meet a boy like Ayden! Ayden is one of the happIest children I have ever met, and what a blessing it is to have him in my practice. Ayden is 5 and has muscular dystrophy and scoliosis. He suffers from tight muscles and joints and general tension in his body. Our treatment goal is to improve the blood flow in his spine as well as loosen up his joints and muscle tissue, so that he can become less stiff and the stretching doesn't cause him as much pain. I have had the pleasure of working with him for the past four months and I can say that he absolutely looks forward to his acupuncture treatments! This little guy is so receptive to whatever is needed - whether it's acupuncture with electrostimulation, and intensive digestive treatment, or soft tissue bodywork,  he is up for it!  The best part is that is he is responding beautifully!  Read More...
