****CALL FOR A FREE 20-MINUTE PHONE CONSULTATION WITH KATHRYN TO FIND OUT HOW SHE WILL HELP YOU WITH YOUR HEALTH CONCERNS.*****

When you arrive for the initial treatment, you will first receive a consultation related to your health condition, following with an acupuncture treatment.  It is suggested to patients to eat a snack or small meal within approximately 1-2 hours before arriving, so that during the session one does not feel hungry while receiving treatment.

Kathryn’s work as an acupuncturist and herbalist focuses on treating people suffering from chronic and acute disorders and diseases related to: musculo-skeletal injury,   the gastrointestinal tract,   respiratory illness,   gynecological and fertility disorders,   pregnancy-related complications,   auto-immune disease,  as well as dermatological, neurological, genitourinary, and emotional disorders, among others.  Signs and symptoms can include: headache,  body aches,   insomnia,   palpitations,   excessive thirst,   depression,  edema,   upset stomach,   irregular bowel movements,   difficulty urinating,   cramping,   bloating,   painful menstrual periods,   dizziness,   sore throat, fever,  chills,   sweats,   wheezing,   nausea,  vomiting,   lack of energy,   numbness, tingling, and so forth.  Diet and exercise are part of lifestyle counseling to enhance the benefits of treatment.

In case you have never received acupuncture, you may be wondering if acupuncture hurts?   It is nowhere near the kind of painful sensation you might have experienced from a hypodermic needle injection, various types of bug bites, or even a paper cut.  Instead, the kind of sensation produced from stimulating the particular area of the body where the needle is inserted is quite unusual and wonderful.  There are innumerable ways to describe it; in Chinese it is referred to as “de qi”.  Volumes of books and articles have been written on the subject of “de qi” for more than a millennium.

Kathryn happily avails herself to discuss with you all your concerns about acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.   She would like to speak further about what she can do for your well-being and to answer any other questions, which you may have regarding her services.
