LLLT Laser Healed Morton's Neuroma Foot Pain

I turned 50 & fell apart! First a frozen shoulder this winter, then Morton’s Neuroma in my foot in February 2018. After a podiatrist visit to confirm the Morton’s Neuroma, I began a series of cortisone shots that didn’t work. Orthotics gave some relief, but I was still unable to walk even short distances without pain. My old life of hiking, running & gym classes seemed to be slipping away until a friend suggested...

Flash Back to My Fertility Journey

For almost three years, Acubalance was my second home, where I found peace and gained control of my health and improved my well-being week after week. I had the most amazing pregnancy and easy birth only because of the unconditional support I received from unbelievably kind and caring Ryan.

Yes, Dr. Ryan Funk, what can I say? I will never be able to thank you enough, so I won’t even try. I just say this amazing doctor and incredible...

Stage 4 Endo: I Saw an Improvement with Pain and the Bloating

Getting poked with needles? No thanks! That’s why I avoided acupuncture. Some find that funny, as I’m a Registered Nurse but as I always tell my patients, I don’t mind giving needles; I just don’t like to receive them! I was suffering from stage 4 Endometriosis and had also been diagnosed with Adenomyosis. The medications I had been prescribed were not working and I did not know what to try next. My cousin highly recommended Acubalance...

LLLT: After a Couple of Sessions My Shoulder Was Healed

Last summer, I went to the Philippines and partook on surfing activities. After the trip, my right shoulder began to hurt from muscle strain. For four months I couldn’t raise my right shoulder and move it in certain directions without causing sharp pain. I tried various arm and shoulder stretches to alleviate the pain but nothing seemed to relieve it.

My Body, Baby, and Birth were Smoother and Healthier

I began seeing Kat for acupuncture treatments during the final trimester of my pregnancy. My intention was to support my physical health as I prepared my body for birth, but with Kat, I got so much more.

She took so much time with me at each visit, asking me insightful questions and listening with depth and curiosity. I could tell she really wanted to treat my whole person, not just my pregnancy or my symptoms. I left every visit...
