Seanna Tully is an outstanding  acupuncturist and herbalist. I went to see her for several different issues, including digestive problems, allergies and some anxiousness, and her combination of acupuncture and herbs has been really helpful over the last year. She also has an easygoing personality which fits her work perfectly. My wife is a client of hers, too, and shares my experience of her.  I always look forward to seeingSeanna because I know I'll feel better and also enjoy our banter back and forth. I recommend her without reservation (and now  that I think of it, I need to make an appointment again soon!).
