When you look at a review it doesn’t really tell you much who is the best acupuncturist in Reno.  Most of them only have a few reviews, but they are probably all great and skilled in their craft and specialty.  So, how does one figure out who is the best?  Well, you can relate it to trying to find out who is the best masseuse.  You ask people, you try one out and if you didn’t connect or feel it was good enough then you tried another one until you found the one you liked and then realized they were so good you can’t get an appointment with them when you want.  So, what do you do?  You try an another massage therapist.  Sound familiar?

It is kind of the same with dentist, trainers, gyms, and so many other things.  Everybody has the best one, in their mind, when they recommend a person because they go to them!  It only makes sense that you want everyone to think the one you go to is the best.
