"Ben has a connection that I have never witnessed or experienced with any other acupuncturist.

I saw Ben for digestive issues, and he helped me immensely. Throughout my treatment he asked about unrelated pain I was experiencing without my mentioning it.

He knew the pain existed and where simply from my chi."

- Lori P.

"I contracted Long Haulers Covid. The only medicine that helped was Ben's.

I will be forever grateful for his work in helping me heal.
