A Chat with New Leaf Acupuncture
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Trained in the US and China. 15 years in private practice and loving what I do every day.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? After traveling to China I fell in love with traditional Chinese medicine and its way of considering the whole body, mind and spirit when treating illness or pain.
What do you love most about your job? I love working with people. Listening carefully to each individual's story, concerns and needs. And I love seeing clients get results and leave my office feeling great.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? I've been told "You changed my life" by a client whose chronic headaches that she'd had for decades, stopped completely after treatments. I also have had fertility clients text me photos of their newborns from right in the delivery room. What a great job I have!
