  1. I came with sinus problems and scoliosis of the back. I have been treated by Penny for approximately six months. I have seen dramatic results with my back. Penny has also taken all of the pain and stress out of my neck and shoulders giving me more mobility.

  2. Our Sharpei “Pei Pei Linn” was hyperactive, which is a common characteristic for her breed. She she gets real nervous. Penny worked with her parasympathetic and sympathetic nerves bringing her to a calmer balance and state of health. Pei Pei gives Penny four paws!
