Since this was my first ever experience with acupuncture, I was definitely unsure of what to expect. Ryan took the extra time to explain everything and he was really an amazingly gentle and calming presence. He is constantly checking in with you to make sure you're doing well with the treatment. While I've only had 2 treatments thus far, I feel great and am looking forward to more progress with him. I highly recommend him to anyone considering acupuncture!
