Brea Keating03:42 25 Apr 19I called looking for an immediate appointment due to horrible pain in my arms from Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was in day 9 of a horrible pain flare and I couldn’t take it anymore. Amy kindly fit me in between other clients and said she would see what she could do with me. We talked a ton while she had me hooked up to a current. She gently reminded me of the things I need to do to avoid flares, like avoiding excess coffee, gluten... all things I’m struggling to manage. When we started the acupuncture, Amy described what she was doing and why. I learned some new things. Woke up next day feeling GREAT!!! No more pain, just a little fatigue. Even thinking about going to the gym! So glad I went!!G T00:31 01 Mar 191st time ever doing acupuncture and Amy was accommodating to my individual needs and extremely knowledgeable and kind ❤️ Feeling amazing and breathing smoothly and clearly and shoulder tension completely released which was the cause of my visit 😁Maureen S22:39 10 Jun 18I hadn't been able fall asleep or get a full night's sleep for several months, and it was impacting my health, my work and my overall sanity. I had tried several different sleep medications and found myself in a state of brain fog all the time. My chiropractor referred me to Amy Landolt to help me with my sleep issues. I wanted to try acupuncture since it was a more natural treatment that wouldn't make me feel like a zombie. After my first treatment, I was able to fall asleep and had a full night of sleep. After 4 treatments, I'm consistently able to fall asleep and stay asleep. Amy is so easy to work with! I trusted her at my first appointment. She listened to my issues, and suggested breathing and meditation techniques for me that would help me every day. Since starting with her a few weeks ago, I have referred several friends, my parents, my coworkers and I highly recommend Amy to those out there reading this. I'm so grateful and relieved that I found a treatment for my insomnia.Dana Garbarski15:09 14 Jan 18I was having acute pain in my scapula for 8 months. It would flare up and be burning, stabbing, and tingling. Two rounds of physical therapy helped with strength but did not mitigate the pain. After a few treatments, the pain started to subside and is now gone! We are now working on my migraines, which are also starting to decrease in frequency. Amy is relaxed, knowledgeable, and really listens to every symptom and change in symptoms. She also tells you why she's doing what she's doing with your treatment. I would recommend her to anyone!incognito61502:41 04 Sep 17The thought of the needles were scary at first, but Amy had such a calmness and confidence that I jumped right in and allowed her to perform my first acupuncture. It didn't hurt and the experience was great. As she said, I had tons of energy the next day. I would definitely try it again. Thanks for a great after-care experience!Melina Kelson00:11 11 Jun 17I was suffering with excruciating pain after herniating two discs in my back. Amy came in late on a Saturday and treated me gently and effectively using a variety of modalities from acupuncture to essential oils. I could barely get on the table when I arrived, but left her office feeling immediate relief and relaxation. Best yet, she armed me with knowledge to help me heal and avoid reinjury. I strongly recommend this thorough, generous, and compassionate practioner!John Terzis16:03 31 May 17"I have been living with the discomfort of a dull pain in my back. I was surprised I had an immediate reduction in pain after just one visit. After a few treatments, the dull pain in my back is greatly reduced and I can do my daily activities and exercise with more ease. The constant dull pain that was always there is now mostly gone. Amy is a professional - well educated in her field. She is responsive and immediately follows through with her health suggestions and educational material based on her recommendations." John Terzis, Oakton Investment Management.Timothy Thoelecke15:19 04 May 17This was my first experience with acupuncture. I found it relaxing and definitely worth the effort. I was not sure what to expect and turned out to be a great experience. Amy is professional and knows her stuff.Dean Bushala11:32 25 Jun 16I have been dealing with back pain for years and nothing seemed to give me complete relief and taking pills daily was not my idea of a remedy. After a few visits with Amy my life changed. My back pain improved dramatically, my sleeping improved and I even noticed I had better concentration at work. I can't recommend Amy and acupuncture enough!Sharan Tash19:26 22 Nov 15I was in a car accident on Wednesday. Hit from behind, and Wednesday I was fine. Thursday my back started bothering me, and by Saturday I was not doing well at all. I also have a recurring knee problem which acts up every once in a while. Amy was exactly what I needed. I had a treatment this morning and I am feeling fantastic. The acupuncture and the cupping she did on my back have made me feel great. Her gentle touch, and her knowledge made me feel very comfortable with the procedures. Amy was very open about what everything was for, and forwarded me if something might be uncomfortable, but it was never bad. She is a consummate professional. I will definitely be going back to her if I need more acupuncture or cupping, and she will be my first call if I ever have pains in the future. I am very comfortable referring my members to Amy and will continue to refer my members, family and friends to this wonderful acupuncturist. GREAT job Amy!!!!!!!!!

Carlos Montoya is the owner and founder of CrossFit Impact. Growing up as an athlete, he knew first-hand that getting injured is the worst thing that can happen, especially when you’re playing a sport and especially if it could have been prevented. A lot of injuries occur due to a lack of proper training and overall health. In school, he realized that a lot of sporting coaches don’t see past the end of the season. He made it his mission to train for a lifetime of fitness, not just a season, and he trains his clients in that way as well. Fitness is a lifestyle choice – a choice to be healthy – not a seasonal requirement. There is no point in riding a fitness roller coaster and risking getting hurt.
At CrossFit Impact, Carlos takes his coaching and his athletes very seriously; they know that when they’re in class, they are there to work and get results. That isn’t to say they don’t have a good time; they’re known to have a powwow every now and then after class, but more than anything, his athletes are like a big family. They all care about and cheer for each other as a team – this isn’t a “me” show. They’re a community, and a big part of that is open and supportive communication. In the end, he doesn’t do this job for the money, he does it because he loves the people he works with, the relationships they form as a team and as a family, and the healthy lifestyles they influence each day. He knows that when your body is fit and healthy, you can do anything. He wants to help each and every one of his clients become a driven, successful, and strong individual.
