Again thank you Dr. Laura and the Natural Approach team!”

“**IF YOU HAVE BACK PAIN, PLEASE READ THIS!**
I truly cannot thank Dr. Laura enough for all that she's done for me...
I was in a pretty bad car accident over a year ago. Both cars got completely totaled.. The other guy was involved in a high-speed chase against police when he ran a red light and crashed into me. It completely changed my life, for the worst.. I received 6 trigger point injections on my thoracic, 2 epidurals on my lumbar, tons of 'worthless' pain killers and man...y, many hours of physical therapy, excruciating pain and suffering.. I literally threw everything I could at my injuries to try and heal, except for surgery, which was starting to look like a possibility as well, according to my doctors.
A few months ago I was referred to Laura from Natural Approach, by my father-in-law. And although I was pretty skeptical about the treatment actually helping me, I was still willing to try anything at that point to stop my pain and finally healing my body properly. Fast forward to today, and as I'm typing this, I'm no longer in pain meds, I'm able to work again, and my pain level in NOWHERE NEAR as bad as was it was before the treatments (from a 9/10 to 2/10 easy), even with all of those injections and meds, it was Laura's acupuncture expertise that rose above the rest. I actually got REAL results, no more masking the pain..
Thank you, Laura. :) I'm a true believer now. You have a fan for LIFE!”

“I’ve been seeing Laura since 2004. I have severe osteoporosis of my spinal discs. I’ve had so many fractures to my discs that my x-rays and MRI just gave up counting and say “multiple.” I’ve had to have a hip replaced. I’ve broken my wrist. I take no medications of any kind. No matter what degree of pain I’m feeling or what amount of stress I’m under, I can always depend on Laura to give me the help I need. Presently she is treating my husband for his problems with peripheral neuropathy. His ability to walk has been severely declining. Now, after 7 weeks of treatment, he has improved an amazing amount. This a bit unusual since he is 87 years old. Improvement, especially to the extent he is experiencing, is not something one would expect at his age. Today his neurologist agreed that there are definite improvements in his condition – very nice to get that conformation from a specialist.
Not only is Laura already highly trained, but I’ve never known a time when she wasn’t studying to improve her ability to help others.
Best of all, she is a lovely person – a rare find in our world today.”
“I was in a motorcycle accident in 2009 and was getting injections a a significant cost out of pocket after several treatments of acupuncture the pain has subsided and I haven't had back pain since. Now turn the clock ahead to 2016 / 2017
I have had excruciating stabbing pain in my knee due to no cartilage and even though I hate to admit it arthritis.
I have tried Orthovisc and steroid knee injections which only lasted short term a couple of weeks the longest after one a...cupuncture treatment the pain is manageable and has not bothered me since taking the herbs along with acupuncture. The only course of action left was knee replacement and with Dr Laura's help I am confident i can avoid that all together.
I would recommend setting up an appointment for anyone who is looking for a natural way to manage pain.”
“My daughter was recently diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, so all these years of fighting and fussing over socks, shoes, clothes, etc......were really not just her being horrible
. But now what to do? Therapy helps, but the tension and frustrations for us both on a daily basis were unbarable - until we found Dr. Vasallo and Bach Remedies! Within the first day of using the drops (and that's mom and daughter both!) - there was an immediate ability on both of our parts to get through the day without screaming matches and temper tantrums. What a refreshing change in the tenor of our relationship! Don't get me wrong - there are still battles to fight and work to be done, but with the drops I feel we are both armed with the ability to face these challenges in a more calm and controlled way. Thanks Cr. Vasallo for coming to our "RESCUE" with Bach Remedies.”
“The last three years have been challenging ones for me. I was diagnosed with R.A, fractured my tailbone and had a lumpectomy. I had P.T and continued to work with a trainer and had made some progress. I am an optimistic person but had begun to feel discouraged as if I had reached a plateau and was stuck. I had joint pain, was tired a lot and my balance and ability to walk any distance w/o my cane was limited. A friend of mine suggested Dr. Laura as she was singing her praises for the help she had experienced with her medical issues. Words are not adequate to express the improvements I have had since seeing Laura. I am stronger, have more energy, do not need over the counter pain meds and feel like myself again. Friends comment on the changes they see. Dr. Laura and acupuncture I believe is the reason why I continue to improve. She is a wonderfully calming professional and she and her staff are great! I thank them all! And cannot recommend them too highly or too often!”
“I was referred here by a good friend who couldn't say enough good things about Dr. Laura I walked in with a terrible headache and severe neck pain, which are the result of 4 bulging disks in my neck. I had an incredible consultation. Dr. Laura really listens, she asks many questions and cares. I had acupuncture after the consultation and left their office with some herbs to take every day. By the time I got home I had no headache, today my head still does not hurt and my neck pain is there but not as intense. I did not have to take excedrin or Meloxicam which to me is almost a miracle. I think if I follow her herbal protocol and continue the acupuncture sessions on a regular basis I will be able to live a normal life.”
“A motorcycle wreck resulted in multiple fractures in my leg. After a year and two surgeries, portions of the bone hadn’t healed. Another surgery was recommended on April 16. We decided to hold off for six weeks. I had four weeks of acupuncture and herbs. A May 28 x-ray showed the bone beginning to heal. No surgery needed.
Dr Laura and staff treated me with the kindness and respect of dedicated professionals. I only regret not starting treatment sooner.”
“I received the Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture treatments by Dr Laura, and also started using the Mei Zen skin care line at the same time. My skin is firmer, I had a reduction in darkness and puffiness under my eyes, and some of my fine line wrinkles are now gone! The treatments are painless,(although a couple areas are a little sensitive)effective, and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this skin care treatment! I will continue to use the Mei Zen skin care line, as my skin has never looked or felt better! Thank you Dr Laura!!!”
“After 6 grueling months of bone bruise in my foot, I am literally able to walk pain free and wearing normal shoes... Dr.Laura is knowledgeable and professional.
I have recommended Natural Approach to several of my friends and coworkers.. I will continue to visit and look forward to making improvements for my health...”
“I was referred here by my Chiropractor. I've stopped going to the chiropractor instantly. The pain I've been dealing with the last 13 years, from my car wreck... has ceased severely.... from a 9/10.... to about 2/10. I feel better, my movements don't hurt as much and just feel completely better! Thank God. Night and Day difference for me. I wish everyone would try this place. Laura is very nice woman too, as well as her staff.”
“I saw Dr. Laura after struggling to have a baby, and failed fertility treatments. She is the kindest person, and her knowledge and treatments helped to get my cycle regulated. I now have a beautiful 11 weeks old daughter. I definitely recommend seeing her, to others who may be in my position or just want an overall improvement to how they’re feeling! I can’t thank her enough!”

“Acupuncture treatments have been among the most relaxing and enriching experiences of my life, and Dr. Laura is a Godsend. After now five sessions, I can tell a distinct difference in my body, and look forward to continuing treatments. If you're on the fence about trying acupuncture like I once was, I without hesitation recommend visiting Dr. Laura and her hospitable staff.”
“I was diagnosed with a rare sleep disorder (hypersomnia) a couple of years ago, and after all the treatments have failed. I decided to give acupuncture a try and I am glad I did. I started to feel better after a few treatments, I have been going for about 7+ months now and my life has change tremendously!!! I am so thankful to have met Dr Laura!!!! My overall experience has been great, everyone makes sure that you're comfortable through-out each visit.”
“I can't even begin to tell you what Dr. Laura has done for me. I have seen every doctor under the sun and been on pain meds for awhile when a friend referred me. Dr. Laura took time to assess my issues and even diagnosed my disease correctly BEFORE the many doctors did! When I first went to her I was on pain meds and my pain level was a 10! I am now off meds and my pain level is usually at a 3 or lower. She and her amazing staff are a blessing in my life. I am so thankful for them.”
“Learn from my experience, try acupuncture first! Acupuncture was the last resort for my back pain and in the end was the only thing that worked.
This is a relaxing place, Dr. is very knowledgeable and understanding.
