    I've been to Sylvia about 5 times now. I love our sessions. She helps me a lot with my lymphatic issues and the pain it causes. I can feel the drainage starting while she's working on me.

Dr. Washington took time to listen to my concerns. She did not rush me or treat me like another number like I've experienced alot with MDs and even some NDs. Dr. Wasbungtin was very professional and I look forward to working with her!

Dr. Sylvia is an amazingly kind and compassionate person. =) She truly wants to help you get well. In addition, she is THE MOST knowledgeable person in her field. I felt absolutely AMAZING after my first session. This is the first time I've been pain free in my neck and shoulders for months on end!! I felt as though I lost 20 lbs.!!!! My only regret is that I didn't find her sooner, but I feel confident that she can still help me get well in my future sessions. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sylvia. = )
