"I have been receiving acupuncture and Chinese herb treatments
from Rachel for a couple of years and the benefits have been outstanding. Her treatments have alleviated and resolved several
physical issues and she has provided energy boosts to my system that I had not achieved with other health providers. She is
highly intuitive, very knowledgeable about holistic health topics and regularly engages in focused discussions to determine
the best strategy for healing. I look forward to my weekly appointments with her with great pleasure, hopeful and confident
of the outcomes. She’s the best thing that has ever happened to me in holistic health maintenance. "
