Katarina Ryan is a highly knowledgeable and experienced acupuncturist. She made me feel instantly comfortable and safe in my treatment and really listens to my issues and concerns. And she works in a very complementary way with the other treatments I’m getting for my condition.

Dr. Ryan is truly amazing! I have received a couple of acupuncture treatments from her and am already feeling better. She is highly knowledgeable and adept in her work. Dr. Ryan did acupuncture for the chronic tension in my neck and shoulders and within one session, i felt an immediate difference! Dr. Ryan is now an integral part of my health and wellness program and I will continue to see her as needed. Thank you!
First time experiencing Acupuncture and in just a few weeks it has worked wonders on a shoulder problem that I had been trying to address for a very long time. Katarina is very professional and even with all of the covid issues I felt very comfortable being in the office and getting treatments. I would recommend Katarina to anyone

Some history on me. I have severe anxiety and terrible neck to arm pain from working and stress. It got to the point where I could barely move my head. Massages and chiropractors helped a little but not much. When I met Katarina I was at an all time low. I also have really bad GERD but we haven’t started my treatment for that yet. So far I am on my 5th treatment for neck, arm, hand pain and a... Read more »
The first time I went to Katrina for facial acupuncture to get a little lift. I must admit I was a little skeptical. It does work. My skin was smoother and more supple and my jowls had a little lift to them. Katrina is professional and caring. I highly recommend her services.

What is Moxibustion and How Can it Help
Traditional Chinese medicine is a medical system that incorporates numerous methods for treating disease and illness. One of the tools found in the toolbox of the Traditional Chinese medicine practitioner is known as moxibustion.
This technique involves the burning of mugwort, known as “moxa”, which is an herb that facilitates healing. The purpose of moxibustion is to stimulate the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”), strengthen the blood and maintain general health. Qi is translated as life energy. continue reading
Moxibustion and Dysmenorrhea
A study conducted by Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has determined that the use of moxibustion at specific days during a woman’s menstrual cycle can decrease pain associated with menstruation. Dysmenorrhea or painful menstruation is a big problem for many women. This study used moxibustion, an accessory modality of TCM, to treat the pain associated with menstruation. The study and its systematic review showed moxibustion treatments were more effective at relieving pain only when the moxibustion began prior to the onset of actual menstruation. This is also the theory behind Traditional Chinese Medicine, that it should be used as preventive care. The efficacy of using moxibustion during the premenstrual time period holds great promise for those who are debilitated by dysmenorrhea. continue reading
