Success Stories

Here’s what our patients have to say … 


My son who is now almost 4 has been dealing with excema since he was 5 months old. We had tried everything from western medicine, allergists, dermatologists, natural paths..and nothing helped except steroid cream which we do not want to use all the time or at all!
A friend recommended Mikaila and our world has changed. The herbs have cleared Quinn’s skin about 90%! We can’t thank her enough!
Everyone I see or talk to that has any health issue at all..I always tell them to see her and when they do..their lives are also changed for the better!

I hope to use acupuncture to maintain my menstrual health through my peri-menopausal years.”

Colic and TCM
