I have been seeing Katie sonce January 2017. I work at a desk job, and have had neck and shoulder tension for years. No masseuse I went to could help work the deep knots and issues I was having, and it was affecting my performance at work. I have always been terrified of needles, as a lot of people are, and it took me awhile to decide that I was ready for acupuncture. I enjoyed Ahimsa Wellness' website, and ability to make appointments online, to get started. Once I had a few sessions with Katie, I was feeling much better. She was able to write a doctor's note for me, and my work provided me with a standing desk (employer results may vary). The combination of the acupuncture, chiropractic care, and standing desk at work have helped me go from having daily pain, to being able to work out freely, and have my life back. I went from seeing Katie once a week, to once every month or so. She is always helpful in recommending natural lifestyle improvements, and really takes pride in her role as a health care provider. If only mainstream healthcare in America was more like the Ahimsa Wellness office...Apr 20, 2017
Dr. Katie is a professional, thoughtful, and skilled provider who answers all of my questions with much patience. I always leave my acupuncture appointments relaxed and feeling great. Dr. Katie is one of those rare clinicians who takes the time to know each of her patients' unique needs and I deeply appreciate her caring approach! She is highly recommended!Jan 17, 2017
I was referred to Dr. Katie from a colleague at work after moving to Walnut Creek from San Francisco. I came to Ahimsa during my second pregnancy to help with placenta previa as well as relieving my uncomfortable side effects. Dr Katie not only helped me relieve nausea, night sweats, anxiety, headaches, sciatica and tailbone pain, but was able to clear the issue with placenta. Beyond the physical and medical benefits, it is extremely easy to schedule appointments and Dr. Katie personalizes every appointment to help with whatever is ailing me. I look forward to continuing to go to Ahimsa once the baby arrives and continuing to feel great.Apr 25, 2016

- How did you get started doing this type of work?After establishing a successful career in marketing and event planning, a health crisis forced me to reevaluate my lifestyle choices. Not satisfied with what conventional medicine offered, I turned to alternative medicine for answers and was fascinated by its ability to heal from the inside out. I knew then if I could help others begin their own journey towards vibrant health, I would be living my life's purpose.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Acupuncture is not limited to pain management. The World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations identifies over 40 medical conditions acupuncture effectively treats, which include migraines, allergies, digestive issues, infertility, and neurological conditions.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Like all things in nature, the body needs time to heal, especially if the disease is chronic. Please don't expect a miraculous cure after only one visit; while that is always a possibility, alternative medicine is simply another tool your body can use to fix itself. My treatments are only as effective as the efforts you make in living a healthy lifestyle. The general course of treatment is once a week for five weeks, tapering off to once every couple weeks then once a month for maintenance as needed.
