  1. God bless those who continue to help others with illnesses! My doctor was a blessing to me; he treated me and even recommended numerous healing methods for me! I’d want to raise awareness about the value and efficacy of acupuncture and other alternative medicines. After enduring chemotherapy for throat cancer, I was entirely paralyzed and in excruciating pain. I needed to find new strategies to deal with the pain and recover properly via rest. I looked into https://revivorship.com/services/acupuncture-treatment/ after a buddy mentioned it. Because to the alleviation provided by acupuncture sessions, I’m now as healthy as an ox.

  2. WOW! So wonderful. Two Brilliant people bringing forth truth and enlightenment for the greater good of all sentient beings!!!!!! Really, it is, instantly, as I imagine breathing from an oxygen tank like an athlete in the sidelines/or fresh Mountain Air as it is available.
