The skilled practitioners at Intown Acupunture know how to treat focused health problems (headaches, infertility, injuries, chronic illness). However, the treatment here goes beyond that. The acupuncturists help integrate insight and understanding of the origin of the problem, the relationship to one's constitution and lifestyle, and a path to healing the whole person. Sometimes small and large miracles of healing happen here. I've seen several of the licensed acupuncturists at Intown Acupuncture, and each offers the highest standard of professional, compassionate, and deeply insightful treatment.

Faith is more than an acupuncturist, she is a truly gifted healer. I sought her out with physical issues following surgery when nothing else was helping me heal. She put me at ease immediately - not an easy task given my huge and lifelong aversion to needles. She is a gentle soul - kind and highly intuitive. As a result of her treatment and wisdom, I have learned to take better care of my body, quiet my mind, listen to myself and trust what I hear. Her knowledge of Chinese Medicine and competence applying it has offered me an alternate way to heal. I only wish I had visited her before surgery. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking to feel better in body, mind and spirit.

I have relied on acupuncture over the years for back pain, shoulder pain and anxiety. I have rarely met someone as skillful, caring, gentle and compassionate as Faith. She has worked with me on each of these issues and has made a huge positive difference to my wellbeing. She also helped my husband's terrible back pain in one visit. I recommend Faith to my friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. She is an excellent acupuncture practitioner!

At my initial session Kimberly took time to listen to the range of my concerns and helped make sense of them - not just as symptoms to eradicate but as 'red flags' that my health was in distress. I'd had terrible problems with irregular periods, ovarian cysts, heavy bleeding and a lot of pain. I'd had surgery and taken a variety of medicines but was still pretty miserable. Over the course of the first month (4 treatments) I began to feel better and noticed overall improvements in my sleep, energy level and mood - as well as lessened pain. Acupuncture works and it works in the context of a healthy whole self. I've been in treatment now for about 6 months - I go about every 3 weeks. Acupuncture and Kimberly will be a regular part of my healthcare from here on out!

Over the past few years I've had various reasons to consult the practitioners at Intown Acupuncture. I've had treatment with Kimberly, Faith and Judith. Each of them brings her own personality and style for sure, but they are all highly qualified and skillful practitioners. I like it when I come in with a troublesome symptom (headache, TMJ, knee pain) and it feels better when I walk out the door AND I also have a new perspective based on the whole of myself as to how these symptoms point to imbalances. The folks at Intown are GREAT!

I really hate to write a bad review about an acupuncturist, as I'm a big fan of alternative medicine and know that they have the best intentions of healing and helping. However, I wish someone had written this before I went. I saw Faith two times and was disappointed. I have also been to other acupuncture clinics and had great results. I went to Faith because this clinic is right by my house.I know the results acupuncture is supposed to give, and I felt like her treatments were not aggressive enough. I needed help with a localized headache, and she wanted to do generalized treatments on me (and I guess keep me coming back forever, which I cannot afford). I don't think she knew how to handle my problem, yet wasn't honest with me about it. She did offer to treat me after my 1 hour session was over, when she could tell I was dissatisfied, but at that point I didn't trust her and did not want her sticking needles in me again. It was the only acupuncture I've ever had that made me nervous and just wanting to leave. Sorry.

I have been in constant pain for YEARS, and walked like a 90 year old (even though I'm 44). After 1 treatment with Jim, I felt 20 years younger! I have had several treatments now with Jim and Judith, and feel better every time! I can even do stairs without pain for the first time in years!

Was a skeptic, I must admit. But, with nightsweats like I was having...plus, hot flashes on the hour, (every hour)...I figured I had nothing to lose. Kimberly is so awesome...professional, knows her stuff. Thanks to her I have no nightsweats...no hot flashes...she has a patient for life! :) BTW...I rarely even feel it when she inserts the needles!

I have been going to acupuncture with Faith Russler for a few months now and have nothing but praise! She is compassionate, incredibly knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend her to anyone considering acupuncture.

I've had insomnia since I was a child, but after one treatment with Judith, I started sleeping through the night! It's been six weeks, I've been back to see her twice, and I continue to sleep well. I was skeptical about acupuncture at the start, but was so desperate for help that I thought it would be worth a try. I'm so glad I did! I appreciate the care Judith takes of me and her ability to address all aspects of my life with her treatment.

I was very apprehensive about acupuncture before my first visit to Intown Acupuncture. Kimberly and her staff put me at ease immediately...they are professional and also maintain a nurturing, welcoming environment in their office. The treatments are relaxing and effective. I'd highly recommend this practice!

I had my first appointment with Kimberly @ Intown Acupuncture today, and I'll definitely go back. I feel better already, after only 1 visit. I would highly recommend Kimberly and her staff to anyone interested in acupuncture treatment.

Intown Acupuncture has helped me as well as many friends and family of mine with various physical and physiological issues including arthritis, back and neck pain, and general stress. Highly recommended for those experienced and/or new to acupuncture. Kimberly Bonde is the practitioner we see and she is amazing. Others at the center have all been very helpful as well. 5 stars.
