About Me: I am a MN native, but moved to the Valley of the Sun to practice 5 years ago. I have chiropractic, physical therapy, and acupuncture training. I differ in acupuncture from the rest of the provider’s as I perform dry needling. Dry needling is the insertion of acupuncture needles directly into myofascial trigger points. A typical appointment would include Chiropractic manipulation and some rehabilitation exercises.
