“… He told me that within 5 minutes, he would be able to make about 50% of the pain go away. I was skeptical. But he was wrong- it was like 70% better! In 5 minutes! I was sold. I wanted to get to 100% so I booked an appointment with him. Two appointments (plus those 5 minutes) later, my hamstring is 100% now.” – Jackie P, Austin TX

“… After the first treatment I was already feeling drastically better, and after a couple of treatments I am now 100% pain free in my clavicle! I even went back to get some help with a back issue that is now resolved. I have since referred two of my friends, both of whom have had the same great results.” – Bill R, Austin TX
