You think at first that you need to see Caitlin for help with a physical issue, but as soon as you honestly answer her opening "so tell me what's going on with you" question, you are guided to realize that the many parts of our body and mind are interconnected. I have learned that our bodies give us signals that should not be just brushed away, and it has the beautiful capability of healing. No tears nor laughs need be held back in her care, and there are no taboo topics. You genuinely feel that she only has your best interests at heart and will do her very best to help you find balance - both physically and mentally. She's always fighting on your side and offers very pragmatic advice. An appointment with Caitlin is like having a cup of tea with your best friend.
I had fatigue and digestive issues. I was reacting to many types of foods and had many symptoms. A friend of a friend had raved about Caitlin. She said that Caitlin was so different than other acupuncturists. That was two years ago and I'm so incredibly grateful for the distance I've traveled to becoming so much healthier with her help. Not only have my energy levels increased dramatically but my digestion is working so much better. My overall awareness of my body and the symptoms I had and how it affected other things have increased as well. Caitlin sees everything as connected and it was very validating to have a professional who listened. I have been to other acupuncturists in China and elsewhere and no one measures up to Caitlin, she exceeded my expectations far and beyond with her treatments and her honest caring and kind manner. Where other doctors or specialists had dismissed my concerns and symptoms, Caitlin treated my whole body.
Several friends recommended that I make an appointment with Caitlin for my neck pain. I do experience relief from physical pain but the results are also much more holistic than that. Caitlin has provided me with the guidance and healing space to work on the interconnectedness of wellbeing. Each visit is like a gift to myself and I gain new insights into maintaining my wellness on an ongoing basis.
Cait does amazing work. She kept me sane during a stressful 2 year Master’s program and I am truly grateful. I found Caitlin online and started to see her to balance my system and help me deal with physical and emotional stress. I felt like in our time together balanced my system, both physically and emotionally (especially my immune system). I hadn’t had a cold sore/fever blister in over 3 years and due to such concentrated stress I developed one. Cait was able to revive my immune system and eliminate the pain from the sore, which dissipated after the session. I was most surprised by our connection and her openness with me in the session. Anyone can work with Cait. Being honest with yourself and the issues you are currently facing will help you immensely.
I have had acupuncture many times. I believe in its efficacy. I also have had bad acupuncture, so I do know there is a difference in the experience and ability of different practitioners. Of course I was expecting someone who was knowledgeable and good at what they do, what I wasn't ready for was how intuitive Caitlin was. Not only did she allow us to build a relationship that enabled her to go deeper with treatment, but she channeled her intuition to help me go beyond what I even was needing (or that I needed) in the moment. She is a true healer in every sense of the word, and acupuncture is her method of expression to heal, but I felt I received much more than an acupuncture session.
Initially, I was struggling with recurring pain in my shoulder/rotator cuff from a fall snow skiing! Despite Physio and changing my exercise routines for multiple weeks, I needed something else to release the pain and start the healing! My two best friends urged me to see Caitlin for my shoulder and to consider acupuncture for stress relief and management! After just two sessions I felt incredible relief in my shoulder. With consistent treatments, I found strength physically in the healing of my shoulder and in myself through general and targeted treatments. Acupuncture and Caitlin's abilities to listen to and process my bodies needs has been exactly what I needed to balance my busy life! Not only has acupuncture brought balance to my life and my health needs, but trusting Caitlin to hear me and give feedback has been key to my recent life transitions, successes and dealing with mistakes and failures! It's all about creating life balance and Caitlin has been the exact right person to guide me and my acupuncture treatments!
Caitlin is intuitive and empathetic without being invasive. A rare combination. She has the uncanny ability to recognize and treat the underlying issues that drive so many health problems.
Caitlin is not only the consummate professional, but she is incredibly intuitive. She thoughtfully assesses her patient’s symptoms and needs and then provides an individualised treatment that is nurturing and strengthening to the body, mind and spirit.
