Marianne is so professional, compassionate and responsive, her practice is a treasure added to our health care community! She has helped me so much dealing with my Sciatica–and she is definitely a Spirit Booster as well. You can’t go wrong with Benforado Acupuncture. Kudos, and Gratitude, Marianne!
