About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a healing system that triggers a cascade of beneficial healing responses including pain relief, improved metabolism, or enhanced immunity (depending on the points chosen for a given treatment). Ultra-thin needles cause little or no pain and do not cut the skin or cause bleeding. During an acupuncture session, the needles elicit a variety of pleasant sensations. They are left in the body for 20-40 minutes during which time most people experience deep relaxation and a welcome sense of well-being.

Hillary collaborated with me on a holistic plan that addressed my specific health issues. The worst symptoms—fatigue, brain fog and joint pain—were 80% better within seven months. I am grateful for their skill and care in managing complex conditions in a patient, methodical and encouraging way.
LP, Lyme and work burnout
Your clinic does powerful healing and meaningful work. You have completely changed my life for the better, and I hope others can reap the benefits of what you do. It is life changing, and I will ALWAYS be grateful to all of you, and your mission to heal.

Had to share!! My cravings… are hardly there. I am a believer. Seeing Hillary was the best decision I could have made! Also, her receptionist made me very comfortable.
JD, quitting smoking
It is rare these days to actually find a person who has the skill to resolve the problem. I am able to resume walking and feel much better. Congratulations, I am awed & grateful!

JM, chronic UTI
Hillary, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It’s been a year since we started working together and OH! What progress we have made! I couldn’t even drink water without pain when we began. That’s CRAZY! I am so grateful to have your expertise and to have you on my team. Thank you for your help. I can’t wait to celebrate our next recovery milestone!
SK, chemical exposure and Lyme
… I developed herniated discs and back pain that at times was excruciating. Hillary treated me with acupuncture, electrical stimulation, and cups. It was like a miracle. Now I’m pain free and have my life back.
DD, lower back pain
I came to Hillary after years of thinking I was doing all the right things. I was feeling disappointed with Western medicine and working way too hard to feel awful and felt like my life was being stolen. I like how Hillary does a comprehensive workup.
JD, Bartonella
I suffered with getting violently ill every month. My doctor told me I have a hormonal imbalance and wanted to put me on medication... the acupuncture and my daily herbal drink have completely resolved my problem.
LN, sudden turmoil disorder
What’s most valuable to me is the knowledge and aid you’ve provided in helping me create balance. I am pleased, impressed, and very happy with the service and caring I receive.
MA, health maintenance
I am fully recovered!! It was a difficult 10 year healing journey and thanks to you, as well as other practitioners and methods, I can now say it is over. Thank you, thank you... for your kind ministrations, wisdom and passion for healing. I couldn't have done it without you!
