I was an acupuncture virgin and I have to admit I was a little nervous. But Jenny Crissman put me at ease as soon as she walked in the room. Jenny has a very calming energy and listens to what your needs are. I pursued acupuncture because I am a breast cancer survivor and am on a hormone med called Tamoxifen that has some negative side effects like leg cramps. Jenny was a miracle worker and was able to address these and other issues. Jenny went above and beyond and even wrote up a nutrition plan for me which has changed my life. I can’t say enough about how much I now love acupuncture and this practice.
