Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (aka Regional Pain Syndrome)

She has abundant knowledge beyond the role of acupuncture and provided me with holistic, all encompassing methods to bring me into a better state of mind and thus, body. 

Two and a half years ago, I severely fractured my wrist. I was diagnosed with RSD (aka Regional Pain Syndrome). My life and home and work was a struggle. I was having more pain and discomfort than usual after the normal healing phases and had been off work indefinitely. Frustrated with lack of direction for treatment and a plan, I sought unconventional methods to help relieve my pain and increase mobility which included: physical therapy, ganglion blocks, qigong, hyperbaric chamber, vitamins and massage. Fortunately, I called Tamara and set up an appointment. At first I was skeptical and afraid of more pain, but soon, I found relief.

Tamara spent time assessing my needs and went to work. I was amazed at how my body responded and how quickly I felt better! Tamara is a master of her craft. She spent time and energy helping me to feel comfortable and was able to get my energies redirected to self healing. She has abundant knowledge beyond the role of acupuncture and provided me with holistic, all encompassing methods to bring me into a better state of mind and thus, body.

Tamara is the perfect combination of a competent, intuitive and personable practitioner. 

I am now able to work long hard physical days doing heavy lifting. My arm is healed but now I need her for all the other stressors I put into my life and keep my body, mind and energy in a much more balanced state.

Thank you Tamara!
