I am simply a very skilled conduit by which people heal themselves.
In their own words:
“Kim is an amazing acupuncturist, and more importantly one of the most kind and sincere people I have ever met. She truly holds space for her patients and gets to know you as a whole person, not just the symptom you have that day. I met Kim through the Returning Veterans Project (RVP), and she has been a huge part of my success in overcoming chronic pain and other ailments. There is something incredibly special about a person who gives of themselves to care for others. Just this past summer I had a bad case of Turf Toe that I got while fighting forest fires, one visit with Kim and I had months of complete relief from pain. One of the many things I love about going to see Kim is how she can put points in which will inevitably make me go to sleep on the table. She is so incredibly gentle that I no longer even feel the points going in. You’re awesome Kim, THANK YOU!!” – BM
“I, being naturally anxious in just about everything in my life, I was anxious going into my treatment. Kim greeted me with a warm hug and welcoming smile, still a bit nervous, but not as much, I finished my intake and talked a little about other issues I may be experiencing. Afterwards we went over to the table where I took my shoes and socks off, laid on the table, and started the process, all with gentle direction, each motion calming me a little at a time. Kim then began to ask for any tenderness, other info personal to my intake, and life experiences. She does this with such ease you don’t realize that each time she’s asking you for a reason and insert needle, no pain at all. I also loved that she counted for me before the slight prick. This kind soul is great at what she does, she touched on previous issues that don’t even occur anymore just by her sensing my body’s energy. I am eternally grateful for being recommended to Kim because I went in with high qi and left in a complete zen state. I had a great night’s rest and woke in bliss. The last time I felt that was in May for a birthday massage. I live for days of bliss. Namaste Kim you are appreciated.” – CS

Kim’s knowledge base is vast and approachable. Her remedies are also easy to incorporate into daily life to achieve positive results you can utilize at anytime. Thank you Kim I highly recommend your nurturing and quality wellness to everyone I know. Blessings.” -MB
“Kim! I have to tell you that my treatments are so successful, I am almost in shock! You treated my knee as an add-on extra thought due to a nasty fall I had on a sidewalk, and the potential for arthritis to “attack” that knee, and as of today, 2 days later after the treatment (2 weeks after my fall), the pain is TOTALLY gone! I can put weight on my knee when I need to sit up, walk, or anything needing the use of a knee! Thank you SO MUCH for helping me re-gain my healthier life. I just cannot say enough about your skills, your kind and caring demeanor, and uncanny knowledge as to how to help someone like me who is an entire train wreck. Thank you so much again! I will see you again on Friday and so look forward to my treatments. I thought I would just grow old and have to deal with all my “problems,” but that is in fact not the case now. BLESS YOU. I came in initially for smoking cessation which is obviously working after 20 years of unsuccessful tries, but have been amazed at the other services.” – SS
“Kim has been so amazing. From first contact with her, it was clear she truly cares and wants to help. In practice, Kim has been a fantastic mentor and her understanding of Taoist medicine is obvious. Kim’s work with my lady & me has been nothing short of miraculous. Thank you so very much.” -BJ
“When I first came to Kim, I was depleted from stress and had the beginnings of a shingles outbreak. Kim’s calm and attentive manner was reassuring, and her ability to tune into exactly what I needed was clear. Not only did the treatment stop the shingles, but I found myself dropping back into my center and accessed a deep peace and source of healing. Kim has both the skill and the heart of a true healer. Thank you Kim!” -KS
