Dr. Ben has been a game-changer in my journey of a healthier, balanced life and is a remarkable healer. Ben's nutritional expertise, acupuncture and herbs, have all addressed my neck issues, digestive discomfort, and overall well-being. His acupuncture treatments resolved a neck problem that I had had for months and using normal methods had not worked. I could not believe that I walked out after 1-session with no pain and also brought a huge amount of relief overall."
