“Tried the cupping massage since I heard good recommendations from a few friends. Absolutely LOVED it and signing up for acupuncture next! Karen was knowledgeable about the history / process of cupping / acupuncture and answered all of my questions with ease. She also was always making sure I was comfortable since it was my first experience with cupping!”
“Wow! Incredibly healing experience. I felt listened to, cared for, and received an amazing treatment. I did the acupuncture & cupping, and it was worth every penny. I feel relaxed & like my tension has melted away. Karen had helpful recommendations for at home care. Beautiful & serene space that I will for sure we coming back to very frequently. Thank you!!!!”
“I cannot say enough good things about Mount Sunny. Walking into the space is instantly calming. Alyce was absolutely wonderful.
