Katarina Ryan is a highly knowledgeable and experienced acupuncturist. She made me feel instantly comfortable and safe in my treatment and really listens to my issues and concerns. And she works in a very complementary way with the other treatments I’m getting for my condition.
Dr. Ryan is truly amazing! I have received a couple of acupuncture treatments from her and am already feeling better. She is highly knowledgeable and adept in her work. Dr. Ryan did acupuncture for the chronic tension in my neck and shoulders and within one session, i felt an immediate difference!

Katarina is very professional and even with all of the covid issues I felt very comfortable being in the office and getting treatments. I would recommend Katarina to anyone
