Words From the Community

On Mud & Lotus and Lawrence Acupuncture’s owner Shannon Spann Ryan:

“I have been seeing Shannon for a few years now and she has helped me in so many ways. Not only is she an intuitive acupuncturist, she is also a skilled Chinese herbalist. I really enjoy my weekly visit with her and always leave feeling better than when I arrived. We are really lucky to have Shannon in our community!”

“Amazing. Just finished 2 of 3 sessions with Shannon Ryan and it was so much more healing than I ever imagined. So many pains have been healed that have kept me from a good active quality of life and happiness. It was painless yet very effective and I would come back any time. Please visit her it was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was so inviting and calming. Loved every minute.”

“Lawrence [Acupuncture], Integrative Health [Clinic] is a very professional health service. Shannon Ryan is extremely knowledgeable as an acupuncturist and other alternative healing methods…She is the best in her field and I highly recommend her services for many illnesses or pain management. The treatment was more relaxing than a deep tissue massage. I owe her my life back!!”
