"Dr. Holden is pleasant, knowledgeable, and a thorough professional"

I became a patient of Dr. Holden's when I was prepping to do a 170km hike through the Alps. My foot was killing me and I was beginning to doubt if I would physically be able to accomplish my trip. My intuition told me that it was more than my foot as the pain was what I thought was an acupuncture point along the meridian. I am very Intune with my body and regularly use other disciplines to keep myself in tip-top shape. I had yet to add acupuncture into my care regime as I was looking for a whole body approach rather than only acupuncture "where it hurts". I hadn't sensed that was available to me until I was given Dr. Holden's name by another acupuncturist. The way that Dr. Holden uses TCM was perfect for me. My foot pain went away. More importantly, I noticed that my whole body and mind felt better and more at ease. 

I have regularly seen Dr. Holden since 2018 and his work has been an important addition in keeping me healthy and balanced. He is an invaluable part of my healthcare team. Dr. Holden is pleasant, knowledgeable, and a thorough professional. Without a doubt, I can highly recommend him and his services.
