Kayleigh has impacted my life in such an incredible way that I struggle to put it into words. She was more to me than just my acupuncturist; she was my friend, my confidant, my healer, my role model, my person. I trusted her during my time of sickness more than anyone else because I knew she would go to the ends of the earth to help me recover. She was there for me emotionally, mentally and physically every step of my recovery process. She was there to cheer me on when I had taken a step forward and was there to pick me up when I had taken steps backward. She was the person that kept me hopeful that one day I would heal and be able to return to regular life. When I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis, a paralyzed stomach, in February of 2013 I was devastated. I had struggled for 9 months prior to my diagnosis and was continuously told by doctors just to give it time, that I would recover. However as time continued to pass I knew that I needed to do something to try to get my life back, to be able to eat again, to not be scared to leave my house due to my severe abdominal pain and unrelenting nausea. I went to acupuncture looking for a miracle because every other thing I had tried previously had failed me. In all honesty Kayleigh was my miracle. She went above and beyond trying to help me. From the very first moment she met me she did extra research and continually would give me new things to try even outside the acupuncture office. She used many different techniques on me depending on my symptoms and my responses to her treatments. I started acupuncture being extremely skeptical of its results despite the fact that many people had told me fantastic things about it. But from my very first treatment I noticed a change, a small change, but one that was a step in the right direction. The most memorable moment for me was leaving acupuncture and actually being able to eat half a piece of sandwich. Prior to acupuncture I was only eating a few tablespoons of food at a time. To me this was extremely exciting. Kayleigh shared these ups and many of the downs with me throughout a year and a half. She has helped me to overcome many scary situations by treating me for anxiety, motion sickness, stress, but mainly my nausea and abdominal pain. When I first began acupuncture I was so sick that I could not function normally each day. Now I can say that I am doing exceptionally well and without Kayleigh I would not be where I am today. I believe that acupuncture was a vital component in helping me to recover and manage my stomach condition, but Kayleigh is the person who helped to give me my life back. Acupuncture itself is not just about treating a specific symptom; it is about treating the whole person. With her by my side to help me through the good and the bad I was able to recover and I could not have done it without her.
