"When I faced a health crisis recently, I chose to entertain a variety of alternative approaches to regain wellness, acupuncture being one of them. At the time I knew very little about acupuncture and how it worked, but decided to at least give it a try. To my surprise, I found my acupuncture sessions to be very relaxing. Kathren has a very good "bedside manner." I found her to be very caring and sensitive to my needs. She helped me gain a better understanding of acupuncture and how it could aid in my healing process. It has been a positive force in my healing process."
"I had been looking for a qualified acupuncturist for many years. I am so grateful that I found Ms. Bunt. She has been able to help with some of my medical problems. The doctors had been giving me medicine but it was not helping me very much. I will continue to visit Ms. Bunt for years to come."
"When I was eleven, I started to get anxiety attacks. I would get a slight feeling of nausea and start feeling worried, sometimes about nothing. My heart would start racing and my legs would start to quake. I would not be able to calm myself down. My mother took me to see Kathren Bunt. Within a month of starting acupuncture treatments, I started to notice a difference. My anxiety attacks became less frequent and shorter. Within six months of starting treatments, my last anxiety attack was over two months ago and it only lasted a few minutes. I was scared to get acupuncture treatments at first, but now they're helping me a lot, and I'm not scared."
"I started going to Kathren Bunt to support a friend in weight loss. We talked about diet, food, and exercises. I started receiving acupuncture for myself for cravings for weight loss. I lost 35 pounds in the process. Kathren explained Chinese syndrome differentiation to me and I found out that my body contained too much internal heat. I also had an ulcerated tongue which doctors and dentists could not solve that was very painful. Kathren did acupuncture to remove the internal heat and to work on the painful tongue. My condition is so much better. My tongue does not hurt.
I think that acupuncture is the most relaxing hour ever!! I would highly recommend Kathren Bunt for acupuncture."
"Acupuncture has completely changed my life. It has regulated my menstrual cycle, instantly taken away migraine headaches, assists with coping with stress and anxiety, taken the edge off allergy symptoms, and many, many other things. Kathren is an amazing woman and very dedicated to her work of assisting people in their health and wellness journey. I cannot imagine my life without her or acupuncture!"
"I am here to let you know that acupuncture is very effective. I regret that it was my last resort instead of my first. I spent much money, time and effort on other procedures and treatments that did not work -- not to mention pain and disappointment I experienced.
Combined with Kathren's gentleness and wisdom, you would be amazed at how painless and relaxing acupuncture is. Most times, I was so relaxed I fell asleep.
I had a very intense challenge with sciatica. My patience was expiring and I was considering shopping for a wheel chair. I read an article in the newspaper about a lady who suffered with sciatica, but received tremendous results with acupuncture. She shared how she "got her life back" and was resuming normal activities. In searching for the best, I located Kathren whose expertise and credentials in administering acupuncture far surpass most.
Don't expect overnight relief, but surely expect eventual relief. I urge you to give it a fair chance."
"I had thought about trying acupuncture for years before finally getting around to making my first appointment with Kathren Bunt. Allergies are a problem for me, and I was frustrated with the frequency and expense of allergy shots. The acupuncture treatments are controlling my allergy symptoms as well as any other treatment I've ever tried. Even better, I was surprised to find that acupuncture has significantly reduced the back pain and stiffness I suffer due to degenerative disc disease. My only regret is that it took so long to try acupuncture. Kathren's treatments are painless and relaxing, and I really feel they have made a positive difference in my overall health."
"Initially, I considered acupuncture at the suggestion of my sister to help with my seasonal depression (SADD) as an alternative to traditional prescription anti-depressant medications. I did not like the way the meds made me feel and I was concerned about the long-term effects. So, although skeptical of this type of treatment and extremely adverse to needles I made an appointment to see Kathren at the Acupuncture and Wellness Center.
At my first appointment, we reviewed a questionnaire that I completed prior to our meeting. In addition, Kathren was willing to take the time to explain acupuncture and how it works and even helped settle my fear of needles by letting me see and handle one.
After four or five treatments, I began to find some relief from the depression; and after several more sessions I have found my depression is 90% to 95% better. I believe much of this is due to the acupuncture and I've also added natural supplements to aid in the relief of depression along with eating healthy and exercise. At this time, I've almost weaned myself off the prescription medications and I don't even mind getting stuck with the needles. If I can do the needles, anyone can."
"Let me say first that I was very skeptical of acupuncture. I didn't really understand what it was all about or what it could do for me. The only thing that I knew was I needed to lose weight.
My first meeting took place the first of March 2010. It is now the first of November and I have lost 80 pounds through acupuncture. Also, through consultation from Kathren Bunt on diet and choice of foods -- fruits and vegetables -- made it all possible for the weight loss.
The other side is I started walking for exercise but I have had arthritic knees and Kathren did acupuncture on my knees and slowly the pain went away and I was able to walk three miles a day at the mall.
I feel that acupuncture and consultation with Kathren Bunt has helped this 72 year old man very well. I have not felt this good for a long time and I would recommend this treatment to anyone."
"I came to see Kathren Bunt for sciatic pain. I have a very good diet. I exercise, lift weights and keep stress out of my life as much as I can.. I woke up one morning with sciatic pain.. I had never had this before. It seemed to happen quickly. Within a few treatments my pain was gone. I was surprised. One of the other surprises was that I had a ring that I had not been able to wear in the winter as my fingers would swell. Well, to my surprise, after the few treatments I could now wear the ring. It was not something we were working on but it was a benefit of the treatments. I would recommend anyone to try acupuncture. It is very relaxing, not painful, and you get more energy."
