“He who attempts the ridiculous achieves the impossible.” Those were my thoughts 35 years ago when I embarked on the study of Acupuncture. Very skeptical, I began my acupuncture career and subsequently holistic care. After practicing acupuncture for a short while, I soon found a new motto to go by. “If at first you DO succeed, try to hide the amazement.”

One year ago I resigned myself to the impending death of my friend "Psycho." Thanks to your skills and efforts, he has made a near miraculous recovery. I do not posses the words to properly thank you for the gift you have given us - the restoration of his health, and his continued companionship. A priceless gift indeed! This cat means so much to me. In a roundabout way, he saved my life 19 years ago. It's a cool story - one I will share with you soon.

Thank you again.

Very Best Regards,
Steve & Cheryl
