Testimonials for Dr. Ycasas


“Dr. Terry is one of those practitioners who actually addresses the whole patient. She is incredibly present during the appointment. I really feel like she listens and treats me with great care and respect. I never come away feeling like I have been manhandled, and feel uplifted after each session with her.”

—S.Y.

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 an acrobat back! I am so very grateful.”

—T.Z., Professional Acrobat

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 MaryJane


“The only thing MJ couldn’t fix is that I’m OLD…but she sure made me feel better.”

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.”

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.”

—S.H.
