Patient Testimonial:
"I have been dealing with sinusitis for over 20 years.  The doctors would prescribe antibiotics every 3 to 6 months, until I discovered acupuncture.  Acupuncture has proven to be a huge breakthrough for me.  I have not been on antibiotics since I started treatments, going on 2 years now.  Through acupuncture, Heather Falkenbury has helped me to identify health deficiencies, which are remedied with herbs and acupuncture.  I now have more energy, which is important to me as I attempt to keep up with my grandchildren." - C.T.
