“Jen is my go to girl when it comes to acupuncture. It’s because of my experience with her that I look forward to every session. We sit down have a quick chat about what’s going on and minutes later I’m in cloud 9. Occasionally I hear Jen asking how everything is going but I’m in a far away planet at that point. It’s soothing and therapeutic for me when I’m under her care. I feel like I’m visiting a friend who heals.”
