Testimonials for Natasha


“Tasha is a wonderful acupuncturist. I’ve had acupuncture throughout the country, over many years, and Tasha is among the best. Not only is she highly skilled, she creates a nurturing, caring, and warm atmosphere where healing can take place on many levels. I started going for treatments of an arthritic thumb and after 6 weeks the pain has been cut at least 75% and is only sporadic. We are also working on other areas of body and mind that need attention/treatment. I always leave feeling uplifted, stress-free, and buoyant. I feel very lucky that I found Tasha and would recommend her to everyone.”

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I am so thankful for Dr. Minarik! He found my problem immediately after having gone undiagnosed for years. Dr. Minarik prescribed a strict diet, a few supplements and he worked with me to keep medication to a minimum. After only 6 months my diabetes is under control. I only wish I would have found him sooner.”

—T.S.

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I’m a 66 year old practitioner of Crossfit, a vigorous regiment of weight training, mobility training and gymnastics. I had been involved in the sport when I damaged my shoulder. You identified the issue as a complex combination of bursitis, tendinitis, torn ligaments and a generally unhealthy 66 year old shoulder. You recommended several PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatments… My recovery has been more than I had hoped. Within four months I was back to pre-injury levels. At the beginning of 2014 [after PRP treatment] I began training of the Crossfit Open Games. I completed the 5 session competition several weeks ago… The competition included, among other movements, pull-ups, dead lifts, burpees, and thrusters. All of these movements required a strong, active, healthy shoulder.

Thanks for the treatment and the resulting opportunity to become a better Crossfit athlete.”
