“I have observed that acupuncture has a nice effect of moderating and regulating the body to help it better deal with the many health challenges that arise in life. I find the herbs to be a great complement to the acupuncture and in some cases the preferred approach depending on the particular issue we are working with.” – Matt Ferguson.
