Reviews By Our Satisfied Clients

  • "My first acupuncture visit ever. Dhanell is an expert in her trait. She also care about all your body and not only your main concern. She was able to Confirm my feelings with how my body reacted to treatment. She recommended some vitamins which I knew I should've been taking a long time ago. I will be visiting her again next week and bringing my mom with me this time."

  • "Both, Dr. Ales and Dhanell are amazing! I have been going to Dr. Ales (Chiropractor) for over five years, and he always helps my injuries. He is a miracle worker. Dhanell (Acupuncturist) has assisted me with so many problem areas such as migraines, anxiety, injuries, vitamin testing, and more. It is amazing how she once touched my hand and said I lacked vitamin D. I then went to the doctor and was told the same as a result of my labs. I highly recommend Dr. Ales and Dhanell. They completely care and their concern is to help you versus just put a band-aid on the problem."
