    Fannie is a highly skilled acupuncturist. She has a caring bedside manner and is particularly good at addressing orthopedic issues through trigger point needling. She also supports the rest of the system holistically and has helped me with stress management, digestive issues, regulating my menstrual cycle, allergies and more!

    Fannie creates a serene and safe environment for clients. I definitely feel very relaxed at the end of an acupuncture session!

    When I complained to Fannie that menopause symptoms had hit me with a bang, she assured me she could help with that. She told me it would start working in about 2 days. Sure enough, within 2 days of t treatment I went from waking 3-4 times per night with hot flashes to sleeping like a baby, from hot flashes every 20 minutes in the evening to feeling normal again. Incredible!

    Fannie has helped me with sports injuries, tension headaches, and most recently an ongoing upper respiratory and sinus problem. She’s both a thoughtful and skilled practitioner and also a genuine and lovely person. I highly recommend you give her a visit!

    As always Fannie is remarkable, when arriving I relayed to Fannie an issue I was experiencing at my ankle and foot. Well when leaving my ankle was noticeably much less swollen and is now almost totally back to normal with no more pain while walking.
    As always thanks Fannie you’ve done it again. ☮️
