Personal Note from Paula:

“The reason I chose acupuncture as a profession is the incredible feeling of making a person’s life healthier and happier.  There is no better feeling than seeing someone who walks into my clinic broken and downhearted, to seeing them walk out again feeling like a different person and knowing that I did that! I truly love what I do and feel grateful to be able to enjoy my job every day.  I also thrive on the challenges it brings to learn and discover just how powerful TCM can be”

I want to spread the word far and wide about how acupuncture can treat almost any issue.  I sincerely look forward to meeting you and working with you to reach your optimal health goals”
