I want to thank the Won Institute for the opportunity to have economical acupuncture treatments from your students supervised by faculty. Such a variety of different treatments by skilled practitioners has helped me so much with my physical pain and healing as well as my mental and emotional health. I highly recommend Won Institute in every way.
