When i first saw Colette i was unable to walk or stand without being in excruciating pain. After 2 sessions, i was mobile again and free from my lower back pain. i was able to attend a party and dance the night away. i would thoroughly recommend Colette she is an excellent acupuncturist.

I have been diagnosed with severe carpal tunnel syndrome, and repetitive strain injury brought on by work. i had agonizing burning pains in my fingers that kept me awake all night. i would highly recommend Colette, after one treatment i was able to return to work in 3 days. Colette is professional, efficient and very effective.  A.Cesare

We have found the combination of acupuncture and CBT to be an effective remedy in the treatment
