Anxiety, Depression & Mood Testimonials

Acupressure Provides Immediate & Lasting Relief for Stress and Anxiety
"I came to Kathleen Stoneman after multiple failed IVF attempts. I was at the end of my physical and emotional rope and searching for any kind of help. I had been hesitant to contact an acupuncturist because of the needles. But, when I spoke with Kathleen she assured me that she could use magnets instead of needles. I didn't know what to expect at my first appointment. I was feeling depressed, anxious, and dealing with nearly constant headaches. Kathleen spent the appointment addressing my physical, emotional, and spiritual health. We discussed everything from my diet, to dealing with stress, and getting rid of negative thoughts and memories. Kathleen changed my life drastically in our first meeting. Not only did my body physically feel better, but also I began to heal emotionally. She gave me tools for dealing with the turmoil of IVF. She set me on a path toward forgiveness, peace, harmony, and acceptance. Since that first meeting she has worked with me on a variety of spiritual and emotional issues that affect my whole life. She has taught me how to change my perspective to find joy in every part of life." - Liz

Fatigue, Adrenal Stress, Mood, Digestive and Joint Issues Resolved

​"When I first met with Kathleen, I was experiencing extreme fatigue, foggy thinking, anxiety, heavy periods, joint pain, headaches, bloating, indigestion, and sleep problems. After she addressed the adrenal fatigue, my energy built back up and I didn't feel so tired. Having more energy, I didn't feel like I needed a nap everyday and didn't come home and fall asleep right after work. I was able to focus more at work, put more energy into my personal relationships and begin enjoying doing more activities for pleasure. I got my sleep pattern on track where I fall asleep quickly and if I do wake up in the night, I am able to fall back to sleep quickly instead of staying awake for a long period of time.  Kat reviewed my diet with me and made me aware that pretty much everything I thought I was doing right was actually not right for me. The diet part took longer for me to adjust to but I am finally able to avoid gluten products for the most part.  I don't eat so much fruit and if I do, I eat it later in the day so I don't crash from the sugar. I restrict dairy but do occasionally indulge but to a minimum.  I am much more aware of what may be right for others in diet may not be right for me.  I rarely have bloating or digestion problems and when I do, I can pinpoint what is what that I ate that caused my discomfort.  I believe diet and sleep issues caused headaches, which I rarely have anymore.  I also don't suffer from joint pain anymore. I don't believe any doctor would have treated my adrenal issues. Therefore, I believe I would have crashed.  I give Kat all the credit to helping me get to where I am today.  Feeling normal.  I had been to doctors before and they just pushed antidepressants and expensive tests. I would have been financially broke and (without trying to sound too dramatic) physically and emotionally broke.  It is important for me to have energy and good health, in order to live the best life I can." - VH



Acupuncture & Oils Reduce Anxiety and Improve Symptoms in Pregnancy

"I have gone to Kathleen Stoneman for several years for various health issues: low energy and various issues throughout pregnancy (nausea, insomnia, anxiety).  Her approach is very holistic and individualized. Her treatments are very relaxing and over time I could see a considerable improvement in my symptoms that I received from no other treatments.  Her acupuncture, in combination with the essential oils, Chinese herbs and other supplements she recommended made me feel like a million bucks!  She is a very thoughtful, considerate, and attentive caregiver.  I recommend her treatments and professional knowledge to anyone looking to feel their best and/or anyone that is having difficulty with health problems not otherwise managed.  Thank you Kathleen for all the health and happiness you have afforded me through your care!" - TS
