“Karissa is one of the most dedicated, hardworking practitioners I have ever met. She made me feel so cared for during and in between treatments. She often inquired about my health between treatments and remembered details about my life and work that made me feel great. She tirelessly worked on my health issues and showed great concern for me.I highly recommend Karissa.”
My treatments with Karissa began with the purpose of regulating my cycle following a miscarriage that was difficult both medically and emotionally. Karissa met my concerns with a level of care and compassion that led me to feel immediately comfortable and confident in her approach and treatment. During the course of my treatments with her, not only has she has restored and regulated my menstrual cycles, but she has alleviated digestive symptoms, minimized skin breakouts, and elevated my mood. Once my cycle was back to normal, our focus shifted to optimizing fertility, and within a very short time I was pregnant again. Now our sessions focus on managing the symptoms of early pregnancy, including nausea, palpitations, swellings, heartburn, and more. Karissa is an excellent listener, a thoughtful clinician, and an effective practitioner. I look forward to meeting with her each week as she continues to promote bodily harmony, balance and well-being, throughout my pregnancy and beyond!
“To but it in the simplest terms, Karissa is awesome. Every time I come to see her for treatment, her kindness and compassion never waver. Her focus and dedication to my treatment makes me feel like I’m the only patient she is seeing that day. Her level of professionalism and knowledge often makes me forget that I’m in a teaching clinic. She has helped me tremendously with my various ailments, and has also been a source of encouragement during my application to Pacific College. In short, I think she is an absolutely wonderful practitioner, and I look forward to continuing treatment with her.”
“I have had about a year’s worth of acupuncture treatments with Karissa and have truly enjoyed every single one. She is a wonderful listener and thorough with her intake. Her calming presence and energy are infectious! She is very knowledgeable and always seems to be researching treatment methods and points for particular complaints and ailments. Her concern for the whole person is evident with interest in diet, and she always has helpful dietary suggestions. The confidence in her point location and needling technique are apparent and make me feel comfortable and I absolutely trust her! Karissa is thoughtful about her course of treatment and I can report that it is effective!”
