" In Chinese Medicine I have been able to blend the many aspects of scientific research that I enjoyed, with deep personal satisfaction that I was missing" - Agnes

If you're in Austin and you are having pain, allergies, or are just frustrated with doctors not listening to you, you need to go see Agnes. Even if you're unsure about acupuncture Agnes is great at helping you understand the process and treats the whole person, not just the trouble area. I've been having issues with my thyroid for 15 years and the doctors keep telling me I'm "normal" so they don't believe me when I say it's not NORMAL for me! Thank you Agnes for working with me to help me feel the best I can. You are amazing!! - E.B
