What Patients Are Saying
What Patients Are Saying
“What I love most about Kelly is that she looks at everything, digging down under what is obvious to find what is at the root of the obvious. Kelly has guided me to be patient with the healing process to take a longer but more complete journey. Without Kelly’s guidance and advice, I would still be suffering and very unwell. I am grateful for her every day.”
“Kelly is a breath of fresh air. She helped me find energy again with being a new mom, helped me discover how my body was not operating under optimal conditions, and got my body into balance again so that I now have way more energy, can be the type of mom and partner that I want to be, as well as can feel more confident going into trying for baby number 2. Now my husband is getting tests done with her, this wholistic type of health and healing is priceless. Kelly is very knowledgable, intuitive and passionate about her work; is very validating and kind, and has a wonderful sense of humor! She’s a pleasure to work with!”
“To begin with, Kelly is both highly intelligent and intuitive. Using both, she has become a highly skilled acupuncturist as well an intuitive, empathic healer. In 5-Element Acupuncture, after the client’s energy has been balanced and fortified, the acupuncturist will access the spirit of the client. Kelly is able to quickly tune into a client’s energy and spirit. I know that when I leave after having a treatment with her, I am energized, relaxed, focused, and balanced. Smiling too!”
“I first came to Kelly during a difficult transition time, and found her acupuncture sessions to be important and transformative in my healing process. Each treatment helped me to feel more grounded, centered, and energetically invigorated. Kelly is a wonderful listener, very professional, incredibly intuitive, and a natural healer. Her treatments are the best I have ever received and I recommend her to any one in need of deep healing work.”
“Kelly has been such a blessing in my life. I’ve tried everything in the book to heal my intense adrenal fatigue and hormonal imbalances and nothing really worked until I started receiving her acupuncture treatments. Since working with Kelly, my energy has improved, I feel much stronger and my menstrual cycle has regulated! I’ve seen other acupuncturists before and there’s something different about Kelly… her 5 Element Approach feels less invasive to my sensitive body compared to traditional acupuncture. But most importantly, she truly cares about your healing.”
