Patient Testimonial

“When I first started visiting Dr. Leeson, it was for sinusitis. I am a teacher and it seems that I suffer continuously throughout the school year. She helped me alleviate the sinus pain when traditional medicine could not. During one of my appointments, I was also suffering from sciatica. For anyone who has ever experienced this pain, it can be quite debilitating. With a couple of well-placed acupuncture needles, the pain was gone. I am writing this review because many people do not realize that acupuncture is a full body treatment. Dr. Leeson is skilled and knowledgeable. She will set your anxieties at ease and will treat you with respect and great care.”
