Acupuncture does not cover up your symptoms. It activates your body's resources to bring relief. Acupuncture does not have the reputation of transitory symptom management. Results normally outlast the treatment cycle.
Response to treatment is very individual. Some people require more treatments than others for long lasting effects. In other cases, unavoidable life circumstances continue to be an overwhelming stress on the symptomatic area. In those cases treatment can only manage symptoms. Acupuncture alone may not be enough to relieve certains conditions. In this case you will be referred to another practitioner or therapy. Treatment plans are always being reevaluated to be sure you are getting the most appropriate care.
I am grateful to have the opportunity to tell anyone reading this about my experience with Kristin over the years. She is a skilled acupuncturist whose approach, always kind and compassionate, makes patients feel at ease and respected. She listens attentively, intuitively decides on a course of treatment, follows through with gentleness, listening and responding to feedback from her patients. She brings a deep knowledge and understanding of the human body and the very subtle signs indicating areas that are out of balance. She has successfully treated me for a variety of health difficulties, large and small. I have never been disappointed in the outcome of her treatments and am grateful to have such a competent, wise, and compassionate person supporting me in my quest to maintain and improve my health. -C.L.
