Rachel is terrific. I've been to her for dry needling for a shoulder injury. She is very patient and reassuring and easy to talk with. Most important, my shoulder is much better after two treatments!

I came in for treatment to address my low back pain. Rachel used dry-needling and it significantly reduced my symptoms in a few sessions.

My treatment with Rachel went really well. She was able to get rid of my pain after only a few visits. The exercises she provided me are great and I can do them easily at home.

Rachel helped me a lot with my shoulder when I injured it during Jiu Jitsu. I am able to train and compete again without any issues! Dry needling was super effective!
