I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed practicing Qigong yesterday. I found myself joking and really laughing loudly while making dinner. I felt really happy inside. I can not tell you how long it has been that I have felt such joy from within. Thank you Catherine, for being such a extraordinary teacher, guide, healer and friend."

"Catherine has been an amazing find for both my partner and myself. I came to her as a converted skeptic, having been raised to not trust anything other than western medicine, and then having witnessed the amazing transformation of my partner, who had been through over a year of testing for a digestive disorder with little symptom relief until she started seeing Catherine. I'd had one session of acupuncture elsewhere that was helpful for my joint pain in the past, but Catherine's practice exceeded that and all expectations, and I believe it is due to the range of practices she incorporates. A few months ago I had an allergic reaction that went haywire, and when my physician's office recommendations did not provide relief, I called Catherine, who squeezed me in quickly. I have since continued to visit her for jaw & joint pain. She works with me, looking at the entire picture and encouraging me to do the same. While she is always professional, she has a sense of humor and 'down to earth-ness' that makes me feel at ease. She utilizes and encourages complementary treatments, and her knowledge is extensive. I have occasionally left a treatment wondering if it could possibly help, and by the next day have been overwhelmed with just how much better I feel. Visits always make me feel more at ease in my own skin, and that alone increases my wellness. I can always count on Catherine to respond quickly to questions, and feel that with her as my practitioner, I am on well my way to reaching my wellness goals."

"I have no idea how Acupuncture works, as it deviates from my understanding of the scientific method and the model of cause and effect. Small needles here and there seem to have a non-linear effect that somehow resets my system, clears my thinking, and allows me to be healthier and happier. The language Catherine uses to describe this process is totally bazaar to me, but Catherine is an amazing practitioner and the work she does for me is invaluable. I'm truly blessed to have found her and I enthusiastically recommend seeing her even if you think you are healthy. She's awesome!"

"I've had the distinct good fortune to work with Catherine on my personal health issues this past year, utilizing her expertise in both Acupuncture and Qigong. From my experience, I consider Catherine a highly intelligent, intuitive, compassionate, practical, and funny woman! Her study of the Taoist tradition under grids who she is as a human being, a health care practitioner, and a teacher. Without hesitation I can say Catherine's a cut above others I've encountered. Through my Qigong practice with her, I find I'm a much more flexible 65 year old woman. Through my Acupuncture treatments with her, I've seen either a steady improvement in, or control of my health issues; so much so, that I've entrusted Catherine with my health and well-being on a long-term basis."
