" As an alternative to western medicine, Best Health Option truly lives up to their name"
"Each session begins with a consultation in which Stephanie then uses her arsenal of treatments, herbal remedies, and recommended life-style changes to customize my treatment based on my specific needs. Throughout the course of my sessions, Stephanie continues to teach me about how I can help myself to help prolong the benefits of each session"
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! "Best Health has helped me with stress, insomnia, pinched nerves, sinus infections, to even relieving sun burns! The main reason for my initial visit was to help conceive during my IVF cycle. And guess what? I'm expecting! I couldn't have gotten to this point in my life without the support, physically and emotionally"
" I have had back problems for ten years. In a constant state of pain... Every doctor I saw said they can't do anything for me. I have 5 disc herniations, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, a cracked vertebrae, and nerve damage from my middle back to the tips of my toes. My nerves are continuously firing off causing severe pain radiating down my legs into my feet. After receiving ASP[needles] from Stephanie I got a ton of relief. Now I just started acupuncture and she has saved my life......I can't thank her enough for giving me peace back in my life. I haven't felt this good for a decade. Thank you again I wish I knew about this when all this started. Thank you"
"I just love her!! Stephanie is a natural caregiver. She asks, she listens, she shows interest and concern. She is very updated looks out for the "BEST" interest of her patient. I always leave painless. What else can I say?!"
"This is not a sissy salon massage. These ladies know what they are doing and how to do it. I will never go any place else.
"Great way to relax and find your inner health"
"Phenomenal - Stephanie has accomplished more in 5 appointments then years of other western medical treatments. She is truly a professional and I would recommend anyone with chronic pain to try Eastern medicine and let Stephanie work her magic"
