Here's What People Are Saying About Working With Me:

Before I found AJ I had been suffering for so long, but within a month I was meaningfully better and I could not believe how quickly it happened.  ~Gabe

Thinking back to that first session, I remember feeling so much relief, that it was easy to put my trust in you.  ~Sam

I came to you as a last resort. I had been feeling sick for so long and none of the doctors I saw could figure it out. So I thought why not try this, what could happen?? Well, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  ~Jacqueline

Since working with you, my doctor told me I don't need to come back for another colonscopy for 3 years! I can't stop crying from relief.  ~Luke

I can't imagine getting this type of care anywhere else.  ~Zoe

AJ, I can’t thank you enough for giving me my health back!  ~Carrie

Beginning with our first meeting, I knew I found the right place for me.  ~Lisa

I have a complicated range of symptoms resulting from a degenerative neurological disease. With Amy Jo's help, I've taken control of my circumstances, and I feel more empowered in how I live with my illness. ~Rachel

To be honest, I’m getting misty-eyed just thinking about “my story”. It’s hard to put into words how much you have helped me.  ~Alex

I walked into Alchemy for some Acupuncture, and I now have a trusted caregiver, and partner in managing my health. Amazing.  ~Philip

AJ is incredibly intuitive and empathetic, and her enthusiasm and passion for her work is clear. I have had good experiences with acupuncture before, but after seeing Amy Jo for only two weeks I realized that I had been missing out before now!  ~Bridget

This is nothing short of transformational, physically and emotionally. I felt better immediately. ~Nikki
