  • About Renée L. Verspohl, M.S., L.Ac.

    Renee Knows what it is like to have traditional medicine fail, & the many side effects you can encounter.  Luckily, thanks to her mother who has always been open to Alternative Medicine, a whole hew world was opened up for her through acupuncture & other alternative treatments.  Also being a dancer & dance teacher, it was upsetting to see fellow dancers injuring themselves & risk their health by choosing methods of pain reduction that could eventually damage them permanently & ruin their career.  Acupuncture is a safe method of pain reduction & healing before choosing high risk methods such as cortisone injections.  She believes that along with a healthy lifestyle, acupuncture can help in the treatment of many conditions.

  • It's true what "they" say, stress can have an extraordinary negative affect on the mental and physical health. I had exhausted options like yoga, meditation, talk therapy and wasn't ready to start medication. I went to see renee at angel touch acupuncture as a desperate woman who's stress level was taking it's toll on my sleep, my diet, my sex life , my immune system , and my ability to function. I was also having extremely painful periods. I was definitely skeptical. Renee did a complete intake interview more thorough than any medical professional. She truly cared what I was saying and formulated a treatment plan from my chief complaints. I fell into the deepest most peaceful sleep of my life . When she came to wake me, I felt simply amazing, rejuvenated and refreshed. I highly suggest all of you skeptics take the chance!!!

  • I went in with nearly my entire left hand numb & in pain for over 2 weeks. Before we even got in the room she did ONE acupressure point and the pain was gone. After the session 80% of the numbness is gone & the relief is just crazy good.

    You have heard me rave about Renée Verspohl my acupuncturist before. But I'm sitting here with my Mom: She's relaxed, pain free, breathing easy, and like her old self again. Oh and my laundry's done and floors cleaned (Thanks mom!) Renee you certainly picked the right name, Angel Touch is exactly right! I

  • After my car accident I was dealing with pain in my wrist and limited hand movement and acupuncture was recommended. I have never tried it before and I was looking for a safe and drug free alternative to pain medications. Renee absolutely has an "Angel Touch". My wrist pain has subsided and I am now able to open and close my hand without issues. I leave my sessions in a feeling of total peace and relaxation.
