“After my 1st visit I felt immediate pain relief and was extremely impressed that a non surgical solution was there for my knee pain. This whole time I thought it was all a joint issue but turned out it was muscular. After my 2nd treatment I was even more impressed and able to do things I haven’t been able to do in over 3 years – like squat without pain! I highly recommend Ginger and her services if you are having any pain”
“Ginger laid out a plan to help me make progress with my shoulder. She enthusiastically worked to help my issues each session. She did exactly what she agreed to do in our first session. My shoulder has gotten better and I have a plan for continual improvement.”
