What Patients Say:
"Soul Shine. When I walk in I relax and instantly feel comforted. Then La Reina’s sunshine smile hugs you. When I see Larissa or Acacia it feels like meeting an old friend. Acacia knows exactly where I need help and adjusts me with with firm confidence. I always feel like I’m able to melt and let go of the pain I had. I am in trusted hands here. The last time I left I said to La Reina I feel so much better it makes me want to swear!."
