From My Patients
"I became a patient of Kaisa Lopes to relieve my symptoms of menapause. I really didn't know what to expect, but was in much need of relief, so I thought I would give it a shot. I felt so good after just one treatment. Instantly I was sleeping better, had more energy during the day and felt so "happy". It took about a month to really feel relief from the hot flashes, but now am pretty much hot flash free. I have treatment every two weeks and take a tonic of herbs everyday. Kaisa is a delight to work with and would recommend her to everyone."
