You’re likely here right now because you’re ready to experience greater physical or emotional health. Perhaps you struggle with chronic aches and pains, you’re finding it difficult to turn your mind off and deeply relax in your life.  Maybe  your metabolism just isn’t what it used to be. It could also be that you could use more energy, joy, and balance in your daily life.  If you’re like many of our patients, you’re seeking an alternative or complement to conventional medicine. You want to get to the root cause of your health problems– not just put a temporary bandage on them. Your goal is total life wellness and transformation.  That's where we come in.

Our Oak Creek practice has helped many people like you achieve total transformation, not only in their physical well-being, but also in their emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.  We understand that your health is so much more than simply the absence of disease.  Your health is the most precious asset you have - nothing is more important than getting proactive about your health, investing in your well-being, and choosing a lifestyle that fosters longevity and vitality.

How does Acupuncture work?

Think of your body as if it were an electrical circuit board - the heart runs on electrical impulses, and your brain communicates through them.  Nerves are your wires.  Water is the conductor.  When we take an acupuncture needle and insert it into that system, it allows us to trigger a number of significant changes, without having to do anything invasive.  It triggers your immune system into action, it settles down an over-stimulated nervous system, and it harnesses the innate power already within you.


"Katelyn is a warm, wonderful human being that truly cares and connects with her patients in terms of her general acupuncture practice and holistic living. I know this because I'm a patient of hers. She encourages me to aim higher, try harder and as a result, I have become a better, more thoughtful person on this planet." - Ryan

“I'm a 57 yr old woman with frequent bouts of insomnia (3-4 times/week). I went to Katelyn because I didn't want to make it a habit of taking drugs to get sleep. Katelyn is an expert at what she does! One session with her and my insomnia disappeared for 6 weeks! No more sleeping drugs for me! Katelyn is the answer.” - Carol
