In desperation, I decided to visit Steve Phillips and try acupuncture. After receiving one treatment from Steve, my symptoms went away within one week! I have also used acupuncture for relieving […]
Testimonial for Steve Phillips I have been seeing Steve for several years for treatment of arthritis in my left ankle, right knee, both thumbs and lower back.
