His five star google reviews say it all:

“Dr. Ansel was highly recommended to me and I completely understand why. I have suffered with chronic headaches and shoulder/neck pain for years. I have seen many practitioners from massage therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors and acupuncturists who all gave me relief but only for a day or two. After only 3 sessions with Dr. Ansel I noticed a big difference in how I was feeling and my headaches have decreased. I now can go two weeks without seeing him and be completely headache free (I used to have headaches almost everyday). His method is painless and his knowledge is fascinating. He is completely on your side and truly wants to see his patients feel their best”
