Laura herself is a wonder. Very attentive but also very matter-of-fact, and with a quietly wicked sense of humor. She somehow manages to put you at your ease and discover everything she needs to know without a hint of smarminess or artificiality. But, having gone to several other acupuncturists in other cities, the thing that is most striking about Laura is her confident ability to diagnose symptoms that may seem disparate, and then to simply and effectively treat the whole picture, the whole person. I first went to Laura for an insomnia problem. I was having terrible trouble sleeping and had been for years, and through a combination of acupuncture and herbal treatment, Laura sent me back the Land of Nod almost immediately. I have slept like a baby ever since, and I will always be very grateful to her. I know it seems like a little thing, but she really put my life back on course! I recommend her very, very highly.

Laura has been treating me for many issues over the years- One is arthritis which responds really well to acupuncture -I dont want to be on long term medications therapy more than I can help it. Also, there has been effective relief for my myositis -pain and swelling of muscles related to an auto-immune disorder . These treatments have helped balance my immune response effectively. Additionally, my problems with facial palsy are responding well to her treatments.

What impresses me about her most is the passion she has for learning and growing as an acupuncturist She constantly looks for new approaches in her technique to address a problem.
She is always interested in the general well-being of a client and I rely on her knowledge.

Laura cured my sciatic nerve pain when I was seven months pregnant.

When I was seven months pregnant I began to get a pain in my leg near my hip. After a day of mild discomfort, the pain became excruciating. I could still walk but very slowly and couldn't put much weight on that leg. It hurt even when I was laying down and kept me awake at night. I called my family doctor and he said I could take ibuprofen for it but that it might just be around until the end of my pregnancy. The pain pretty much disabled me so I looked for other solutions.

I mentioned the leg pain to Laura and she thought it would respond well to acupuncture. I got the okay from my midwife and went in for treatment.

I had never had acupuncture so I didn't know what to expect. We talked for a little while and then she got to work. I rested on my side while she inserted the needles (I couldn't see exactly what was happening because of my stomach). The areas where she had inserted the needles became warm and it made me relax. I stayed that way for awhile and then she removed the needles.

After the treatment she said the pain should lessen each day by half until it disappeared. The next day the pain was half of what it had been, and by the next day it was gone. I was so happy! I had been dreading the rest of my pregnancy because of the pain and now it was gone.

Not only did the acupuncture get rid of my sciatic nerve pain but Laura herself is a calming and gentle person. I'd recommend her to anyone.
