    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden

Dosage: 60 min Monthly
Advice & Tips: This treatment has given me my life back. I went for two months once a week and now I go about once every month. It has taken away my pain, gotten me off drugs completely and given me my energy and smile back. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is currently suffering. It was the first time that I ever went to any doctor, therapist, etc. and they actually said they were going to be able to fix me. I finally had a small sliver of hope and it turned out to be a true gift.
Cost: $200+ monthly
