We researched and created unique treatment strategies using acupuncture, electro-stim acupuncture and frequency specific micro-current that resolves the gap for 80% of people. Thereby, resolving the gap in treatment options by focusing on methods that provide the best results to our patients.

“I’ve worked with Darren and Stephanie. They are both amazing. Every time I leave feeling positive and happier. I highly recommend them.”

J.H. - chronic pain

“I’ve been seeing Stephanie for acupuncture since 2012.  She is a competent, caring, and delightful person and has made a huge difference in both my physical and spiritual health. She helped me recover from abdominal surgery in 2018 and has also helped clear migraines and anxiety during the pandemic — I’ve worked with her both remotely and in person, and she has shared many tools for self-care.  I highly recommend her!”

“Four years ago I started my acupuncture with Darren Johnson and he has been the best help for my anxiety problem.  For me Darren helped me a lot to balance my body and to be able to control moments of anxiety.  I have had a very good experience and he helped me not only with his acupuncture knowledge but his way of communicating with me to be able to control myself in those moments where I feel out of control.  Darren is a person with a lot of charisma and his way of being and communicating with me has helped a lot.  I highly recommend it.”

E. J. - chronic migraines and IBS

M. D. - anxiety

"Darren has greatly helped me manage my low back pain. He has been the best help for my anxiety problem too. His way of communicating is very comforting. Highly recommend!"

O.G. lower back pain

"After six months of acupuncture treatments, I finally became pregnant after trying to conceive (TTC) for four years and three failed IVF rounds. I now have a 9 month old baby girl!!! Stephanie is phenomenal! 

W.J. fertility

"I was skeptical about acupuncture for my fibromyalgia. However, after being treated by Darren, I can honestly say it's been well worth my visits. I've had more energy than I recall in years!"
