PL’s Testimonial was last modified: May 18th, 2022 by Mary Mees
I was so pleased with how my skin improved after 1 appointment that I had to share a few comments. My skin looked noticeably smoother and more firm, plus had a nice healthy glow to it which my husband had noticed. I’m 53 and my skin is showing many fine lines and beginning to sag in the eyelids, jaw and neck areas. I want to keep a healthy appearance without fillers etc. and feel that facial acupuncture rejuvenation is without... Read more »
You, my friend, are a wizard! I came home yesterday, napped for an hour, but still felt a little tired. Went to bed about 11 pm, and slept the best I have in years! Didn’t even get up to go to the bathroom. The hardest I’ve slept in a very long time. I feel so much better today! Thank you! See you next week!

Bought this service to help boost my weight loss as I had run into a stall. Not really knowing much about light therapy I came in hoping I might lose a few pounds and tighten some loose skin around my stomach. Mary gives you a packet guide and tells you to detox and diet in combination with the light therapy to help boost weightloss. I did not do this part of the plan, I have been doing the Keto/Paleo Diet... Read more »
Dr. Mary Mees is wonderful, and I’ve discovered unanticipated benefits from her light therapy. Beyond the 1/2 hour of complete relaxation (and being able to button my pants more easily after her treatment!), my face feels smoother and has a little glow to it. Most impressive though -and totally unexpected, I went in for the regular treatment with a shoulder injury and the light therapy completely relieved it. This is some good stuff, Man!!

Mary is wonderful. She’s such a delight and the treatment really works too! I had 4 sessions before my wedding day and they made such a difference. I felt better and looked better.

Dr. Mary is a beautiful spirit, so full of knowledge and skill. Her facility is a beautiful, peaceful atmosphere and also private. I have had many unexpected benefits from the light therapy as well as her sharing her wisdom. I am grateful for her and her practice.

Foods to Eat to Help Depression
Many have heard the question posed what came first, the chicken or the egg? But how does that concept apply to depression?
