Testimonials for Natasha


“I have been a physician for 25 years. It is always interesting to see the faces of my patients when I tell them that my health care provider is my acupuncturist. I always tell them that when I am sick the first person I call is Tasha. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of skepticism about the benefits of acupuncture among the medical community and the public. I can attest by personal experience, and that of my patients, that acupuncture is a very effective and valid healing method. Tasha has been my caregiver for the last 6 years, she is not only an excellent acupuncturist she is also a wonderful person. I refer many of my patients to her and all of them share the same opinion. I highly recommend Tasha not only as a patient but also as a physician who has seen the benefit and excellent results that she has achieved with my own patients that I have referred to her.”

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“In the spring of 2013 I suffered a severe rotator cuff injury while
rehearsing for an acrobatics performance. I was unable to hold even
something as light as a coffee mug with my arm extended. My estimated
chance of recovery after surgery was [predicted to be] 50 percent.

I started PRP with Dr. Ryan Minarik in hopes of increasing my chances of a
successful surgery. However, the treatments yielded such dramatic results
that now, a year later, I don’t require surgery at all! I can do a 1-arm
dead hang and multiple pull-ups easily. I can hold a free-standing
handstand for 90 seconds and counting. I can do flips and handsprings
without pain or instability. PRP helped me get my life, and career as a
acrobat back! I am so very grateful.”

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.”
