What brought me to Optilife was shoulder pain/discomfort that kept me from lifting weights and training in jiu-jitsu for multiple weeks. After only two treatments with Dr. Danielle I can only breathe a huge sigh of relief. She is clearly very knowledgeable and exceptional at her craft, I would recommend going to see her ten times over.
