Kim is amazing! I have seen Kim weekly now for about three months. I was breaking out due to stress and dealing with other minor health issues. I can report that my skin has never been more clear (I get compliments all the time on my glowing skin) and feel so great! She has turned my overall health around, and I cannot be happier.

I have been twice and FINALLY my feet feel better! I have been in ridiculous pain since December! I tried the internist, the podiatrist, every shoe and insert there is out there as well as chiropractic care for months. Nothing helped until I met Kim. I am so thankful to have found her.

I tend to be a skeptic, but I also try not to dismiss anything I haven't experienced. I've tried acupuncture before and it didn't do anything except lighten my wallet. Kim very subtly convinced me to give it another shot. So I gave Kim an hour of my Friday, and she absolutely liberated me. I had a tight trapezius muscle that was in constant pain. First session toned it down dramatically. After the second session I had no pain at all. I also felt my stress level drop and it stayed down throughout the week. I don't know how or why it works, but I'll be damned if Kim didn't fix me right up! Strongly recommend her.

This woman knows the medicine well and will do whatever she needs to bring you healing. She's the kind of healer that thinks about when you're not around playing with herbs and different needling ideas to fix whatever imbalance is off. She's also affordable and flexible: she's a healer in the true sense of the word---she makes you feel important, is on your side and will give you a solution...

One of the top in San Diego!
