    Working with Alex has been great. He patiently listens to pain points and helps me understand why and how my body is working to cause pain and to ultimately heal it. I feel confident for the first time in months that I'm on a path to being pain free. Awesome experience!

    I have pain in my lower back and Alex was able to pinpoint exactly where and what the problem was. We did a bunch of exercises and found an exercise the immensely improved my flexibility and pain in my back. I look forward to going back next week!

    I've been going to see Alex for a year now. He knows exactly how to treat me now which shows that he cares about his clients. I hate needles but he makes acupuncture feel great!

    He was very nice and explained everything very clearly. He gave me hope that my foot will recover and suggested me to do some exercises with a foam roaler.

    Alex was really understanding and gave a detailed assessment of my knee injury during the initial assessment. The daily exercises that he suggested led to noticeable improvements in under a week. I'm impressed with his thoughtful instruction and quality of care, and I would recommend him to my friends and family.
