Testimonials

I lead a very active life style so when nagging injuries began to stop me from doing the things I love, I knew I had to do something. I began treatments with Kate and saw an immediate difference in my overall wellness. Not just physically, but emotionally as well. Two years later, I feel like a different person, and have no one but Kate to thank for that

Kate is not only a skilled acupuncturist but I consider her an integral part of my overall healthcare team.  Kate has assisted myself and my family with issues ranging from digestive disorders and fertility to menopause.  Kate’s depth of knowledge, clear passion for her work, dedication to excellence and professional demeanor make her a pleasure to work with and an invaluable healthcare resource.

Prior to visiting Stone Acupuncture I suffered from migraines for over a year.  I had tried all conventional methods prescribed by my primary care physician to no avail.  Because of the type of migraines, I experienced them almost every day.  While I was still able to function it was definitely not something I could endure for much longer.  The pain and fatigue was taking a toll on me. This was my first attempt at acupuncture and was hopeful but a bit skeptical.  To my relief, within 4 visits I was back on track and within a few months back to my old energetic, pain-free self!  Kate really knows how to assess your situation and makes you feel at ease.  The treatment rooms are relaxing and comfortable and appointments are always kept on time.  I would (and often do) recommend Stone Acupuncture to anyone experiencing headaches or any other ailment you find difficult to treat with conventional methods.

I went to Kate for treatment of a stomach ulcer and gastritis. Between the acupuncture, herbs, and nutritional guidance from Kate, my ulcer is completely healed and my gastritis symptoms are gone! I’m amazed at how much her treatment really helped.

I first went to Kate Stone for acupuncture several years ago with a bit of anxiety and a great deal of skepticism. Kate immediately put my anxiety to rest with her seamless technique and calming style, but it wasn’t until experiencing a brand new base line level of health that my skepticism was fully done away with. Having suffered with chronic congestion, ear infections, and uvulitis since childhood and having spent the vast majority of my winters taking antibiotics with little result, I was completely blown away to discover that with acupuncture I could go through an entire New England winter without ever getting sick. I’ve now come to rely on Stone Acupuncture’s combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs to treat just about every ailment I have encountered in the past few years, including surgical recovery, and have experienced effective results in each case. I would recommend Kate Stone without hesitation to anyone!

Kate combines knowledge of herbs and acupuncture with an intuitive healing skill which made me feel like I received  treatment perfectly designed just for me.

I have been a client of Kate Stone’s for over three years.  Her acupuncture treatments have assisted me with sleep, back pain, allergies, and everyday outlook, to name a few.  Her approach, combined with herbal therapy has been incredibly beneficial to my health and everyday well being.  My husband and children are now clients and my whole family benefits from all that acupuncture and Kate  has to offer. Kate is an amazing healer.  The acupuncture experience has changed our lives.

I started getting treatments from Kate shortly after loosing a baby and desperately trying to get pregnant again.  Through acupuncture and herbs I became pregnant in 4 months at 40 years old!  I believe Kate’s expertise, dedication and friendship played a major role in me getting pregnant and delivering a healthy baby boy who is now a rambunctious 2 year old.  Thanks Kate for being a big part in making a dream a reality!

For years I had struggled with heart palpitations.  They started in middle school and continued right on through my late twenties.  Doctors diagnosed it at anxiety attacks, however, I had my doubts being that that it would only happen after some sort of physical movement, whether it be jumping rope or simply loading and unloading the dishwasher.  It became physically debilitating.    The last time it happened I was running on a treadmill at my parent’s house and it lasted at least 5 minutes, my mother was dialing 911 when it finally ended.  That time, I found myself at a cardiologist with a diagnosis of inappropriate sinus tachycardia and eventually taking a beta blocker everyday.  I was a healthy 27 year old on a beta blocker.  I simply felt too young for this to be happening.  Then, FINALLY, I found Kate.  What Kate did that the doctors didn’t was treat the entire person.  During our work together I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by a psychiatrist.  Kate explained that I did in fact have inappropriate sinus tachycardia as a result of the PTSD but what we needed to do was work on changing my body’s chemistry, therefore, changing my nervous system’s response to stimuli.  That is exactly what she did.  I literally feel like a completely different person.  Here I am 5 years later, no longer on that beta blocker.  I even ran a marathon in 2009.   I no longer live my life in fear of an unexpected episode.  Kate changed my life, she helped free me from the prison my body became.

As a yoga practitioner, I was unable to practice properly on my right leg due to an old knee injury and arthritis. With acupuncture and Kate’s help, my meridian on that side is no longer blocked and I practice with strength and flexibility on that leg, Former pain along my right leg from hip to toes is totally gone. This is amazing as I spent many years trying to work around the effects of that old injury.

Three years ago, my wife convinced me to try acupuncture after a back injury. Kate’s acupuncture treatments were able to heal my back and I have never had another problem with it since.  I continue to receive treatment on a regular basis for overall wellness and it has helped a great deal with my energy level, my focus and my outlook on life.  Kate is truly a unique and special healer.

I had never been to an acupuncturist before I went to see Kate Stone.  She immediately put me at ease, describing what to expect from each session, then listened with great attention and patience as I explained my health concerns.  My biggest health issue at the time was fertility.  After treatment with Kate for about five months, I successfully became pregnant and am now a very happy mother.  She continues to treat me for digestive and stress issues, and after each visit, I feel so relaxed and refreshed.  Kate was also able to treat my digestive issues and now, in conjunction with the herbs she prescribed, I am no longer experiencing problems.  Kate is such a kind, gentle, compassionate person, who is now more than just an acupuncturist to me, and I am truly blessed to know her.  I would highly recommend Kate for treatment because her expertise and caring demeanor are exceptional.

I was new to the concept of Acupuncture.  When I was referred to Kate Stone of Stone Acupuncture, I was immediately put at ease with Kate’s professionalism, her knowledge of Chinese Medicine, compassion, and interest in my needs.  She has always put my needs first, and guided me every step of the way.  Starting with helping me to overcome stress, and my hardest hurdle, to quit smoking! Although it is a process, acupuncture has changed how I feel physically and mentally.  I do not think I would have come this far in this process without Stone Acupuncture.

I’ve had discomfort with my feet for a long time and finally have the correct diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis. I had a good friend tell me about acupuncture and thought I’d give it a try as I’ve exhausted many other traditional routes. I’m so happy that I made this choice because it has been extremely helpful and the results have been amazing. After only a short period of time, my feet have responded and haven’t felt this good in years.  I would highly recommend  Stone Acupuncture!
