During the time that I have been seeing Kathy, she has been able to help me in several areas. I had been suffering from chronic abdominal pain on my right side and had asthmatic symptoms including labored breathing and wheezing. Through treatments of acupuncture and herbal remedies Kathy was able to eliminate both ailments and return me to a better state of health.
While Kathy maintains a commanding knowledge of acupuncture and the systems involved, she also takes a strong personal interest in my lifestyle to help me make the changes I needed to reach my health goals. Her guidance has proven invaluable time and time again.
I can say with 100% certainty that my experience with Kathy has been nothing but truly amazing. I was new to acupuncture and was truly shocked at her ability to produce strong results with such simple treatments. I recommend her to everyone.

During my second pregnancy my midwife suggested acupuncture and moxibustion, a technique used in Chinese medicine to help encourage the baby to turn from transverse to vertex.  A friend recommended Kathy with praise, which alleviated my unease about trying acupuncture for the first time.  I found Kathy to be an instructive and knowledgeable expert, providing clear explanation regarding the treatments and administering with both precision and gentleness. She seemed to also have an intuitive sense guiding her practice, which I feel customized the treatments to my individual needs. In addition, when I called her for labor induction a over a week past my estimated due date she was most accommodating and by 6am the next morning I had already experienced the natural birth I had long hoped for.  I am eternally grateful to her for helping my new baby greet life without medical intervention.

I was so lucky to have found Kathy to work with. I was almost a week overdue with my third baby and was going for a VBAC. My doula recommended Kathy to me because she said Kathy had great results when it came to inducing labor. Kathy was so patient and gentle with me. We talked about my wants and concerns and she was very thorough while discussing things with me.
The acupuncture treatments were wonderful! They helped my body to relax and Kathy individualized each session for me—she performed the exact treatments my body needed. My body was very receptive—all signs of labor started after my treatments. I know I was able to have a VBAC with the help and support of Kathy and acupuncture!

I feel SO good!! I think of Kathy as a gift in my life. She is a bright shining star. I have degenerative disc disease that gave me terrible low back pain and I was seriously at my wit's end when a friend recommended I see her and I'm so thankful I did! I had seen other acupuncturists before and I just didn't feel the same thing in their treatments that I did in Kathy's. After our first session together I was hopeful again! Oh my goodness, there was some relief! I adhered to my regimen of acupuncture and herbs and her other recommendations and I haven't felt this good in 15 years! I have so much more mobility. I never thought my condition could be stopped in its tracks. I honestly thought I was headed for a wheelchair by the time I was 60, it was that crippling. I feel like I have such a handle on the disc disease that Kathy and I have begun working on other areas of my health. She's the best kept secret on the Island.
