Wonderful experience.

I have been seeing Melody Pickell for more than 4 years now. When I first went to her I had not slept in 6 weeks, was not able to eat, had heart palpitations and cortisol streaming through my body and I was in tears. An hour later, after my treatment, I was calm, relieved of the heart palpitations and the streaming cortisol and could feel my appetite returning. I continued to see her regularly and over time reduced my visits to bi-monthly. These visits are now more like a "tune-up" where we take care of any little ache or pain. I find my whole experience with Melody and her receptionist to be very professional, personable and caring. She is very accessible, nurturing and patient. I highly reccommend her!
