  • I am the type of patient who wants to understand everything, and Daisy consistently communicated with me all her diagnoses, questions, reflections, care plan and suggestions so that I knew exactly how my journey to healing was unfolding. She is so communicative and offers such a wonderful space for healing that I always felt completely safe with her as my practitioner.”  - M.T.


  • “My psoriasis also showed dramatic improvement.  I noticed improvement almost immediately after the first acupuncture treatment with Daisy.  After three treatments, areas that had previously been constantly red, scaly and irritated were beginning to clear. Although I currently still have small patches that are not completely healed, I would estimate that my psoriasis has improved about 75% since my first visit with Daisy.” - K.G.


  • “In late 2011 I began experiencing symptoms of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). I also have Sleep Apnea, which I had been diagnosed with many years ago but which I had not treated as I did not like any of the standard treatment options. Daisy’s ability to help me deal with stress issues turned out to be as rewarding as her success in helping my physical issues.” - M.W.
