Great Dr. Took his time even though it was more than most providers can take right now. Felt better by each minute.

BSA is amazing! I started seeing Dr Abels last year as an acupuncture newbie, and I can’t imagine what I was doing before him! His acupuncture has allowed me to reduce my stress, improve my sleep, and increase my overall well being. Dan takes time and care to understand his patients’ individual needs, and is such a kind person!

I have had aches and pain in my neck and arm nearly 24/7 for the last 9 months. After just one session, I began to feel relief in both the persistent left arm pain and I was able to move my neck without aches for nearly the first time in months. Mr. Abels is attentive and sensitive to medical history and needs. He is not only incredibly competent but makes you feel comfortable too.

Dr. Abels is caring and knowledgeable. He helped with my shoulder injury and offered reasonable treatment options. Positive results were almost immediate, who doesn’t appreciate more mobility and less pain!

Dan is incredible! He’s very focused on getting to the root of the problem and his results speak volumes. I had bad insomnia for years and had the first great, deep sleep after just one session.
