“I have been getting migraines since I was young and recently they have gotten much more frequent.  When I started seeing Tiffany, I had tried many Western medicine paths that were not working for me, and was feeling desperate for a solution.  After our first visit, for the first time in a long time, I felt there may be a possible end to my migraine trouble. 

The treatments I get from her are always different, fine-tuned to address what we talk about before each.  Regardless of what she does, I always leave feeling recharged and like my nervous energy has become focused, allowing me to deal with the world in an effective and positive way.  With her guidance and herb prescriptions my migraines have decreased to about one or two a month, my skin is as clear as it’s ever been and I feel calm and hopeful. And I can’t remember the last time I came down with a cold!” – Amy
