I have been experiencing serious back pain. I was reluctant to see a chiropractor and decided to try acupuncture. I have had acupuncture in the past, but the sessions with Margarita are different, and by far the best. My weekly acupuncture/reiki sessions have become central for my well being. Not only do they immediately alleviate the back ache, they have also provided me with an inner well being and balance that keep me going all week. I am very grateful that I came across Margarita. Her treatments seem to just be magic. I strongly recommend her.

I started practicing marital arts and my body went through a natural painful readjustment of its structure. Margarita put me back together and in line with myself. I was able to continue my martial arts practice without the initial pains, and focus more on learning the discipline. Due to stressful situations in my life, from time to time I need some readjustments, mostly related to my energy and involving my liver and kidneys. A couple of sessions with Margarita and I’m back on track again.

I haven’t felt so at ease in a very long time. I feel like my batteries have been recharged… I’m now ready to face things with a clear mind without being entangled in emotions. Thank you for giving me the tools to face any challenges through self-love and crystals.

Margarita is phenomenal! She has been treating my PCOS symptoms and helping through anxiety attacks. I’m a grad student and a writer, and visiting her has really helped me tap into my creativity through healing dreams during the sessions. I have been transformed, taught to listen to my body and to care for myself through her caring and wise guidance. Margarita’s combination of reiki and acupuncture is really powerful. I have been seeing her for the past four months and I can see the difference in my face and in how much better I feel.

I went to Margarita for help with a painful wrist injury when I had exhausted all other avenues. I had very little knowledge of acupuncture as well as other forms of Eastern medicine prior to our first session, but was open to the experience. The partnership Margarita and I have formed through the healing process has exceeded my wildest expectations. She shows true care for her patients in the way she works to get to know you in order to customize each session to your individual needs. I came to her for help with my wrist, but have gotten a lot more than that, leaving me looking forward to each coming session. If you are new to acupuncture or looking for a new provider, the first person I would visit is Margarita.

Margarita has been treating me for asthma and allergies. She is a gifted healer with the unique ability to explore beneath the surface and address what’s really going on. She takes time to explain the Chinese medicine principles behind her needling work and brings in other modalities like massage, yoga, visualization, nutrition and reiki. Margarita has a soft touch, a joyful sense of humor and the expertise to help you heal. She’s been my partner in healing these past months and I highly recommend her.
