  1. I was fairly new to Chinese Medicine when I started receiving acupuncture from Hilary. I looked into it for help with emotional imbalance and self-criticism I had been struggling with for several years. After my first session, I was convinced this was a therapy I would be incorporating into my life. Hilary is warm, welcoming, genuine, and is impressively knowledgeable about her work. With the use of acupuncture, I feel more comfortable with who I am and trust the path my life is on. I am relaxed. I am at ease. As an RN, this experience has influenced me to become a member of the Holistic Nursing Council at the hospital where I work. Thank you, Hilary, for your support and dedication. You are greatly appreciated!

  2. I have been going to see Hilary since November of 2010 for chronic back pain and sciatica. I have lived with this pain for over 10 years, and felt frustrated at the debilitating effect on my activity level, as well as the medication I had to take to relieve symptoms.

    Hilary provided a comprehensive explanation of my problem from the perspective of Acupuncture―meaning how my chronic condition was viewed in terms of the science of Acupuncture. She included a recommendation for treatment, and set expectations of what this journey would be like. I was excited to think about this in terms of solving the fundamental issues that caused chronic pain, not just treating the pain itself.

    I felt results very quickly, and over time have noticed that the chronic nature of my pain has slowly evaporated, leaving me more rested, with faster recovery time when I do strain my back. I feel like I have the recovery time of when I was in my 20s, and any pain experienced is short lived.

    In life, it is expected that we overdo on occasion, straining muscles and waking up stiff the next day. What I didn’t like was the fact that the pain and stiffness became the norm, which limited activity, which fed further discomfort. Hilary has treated the core of this issue, and reversed the trend I felt was happening. I am very happy with my results, and also highly recommend her as a professional yet completely approachable practitioner.

  3. I want to thank you so much for the acupuncture treatment on Friday. I slept 11 hours that night and have slept very well since. It has been a really long time since I can remember having such a deep sleep. It was incredible.

    Thank you so much for the relief from insomnia.

  4. I was new to acupuncture last year when I first visited Hilary and felt completely comfortable the minute I came to her office. Her thorough and individualized treatment is outstanding. She has treated my chronic muscle tightness and pain more effectively than anything else I’ve tried.

    My physical health has improved as well as my ability to recover and heal from athletic activities and stress. I have recommended many others to Hilary without question and they have all felt her treatments are worthwhile and incredibly helpful.

  5. When I first visited Hilary, my neck, back and hips were so tight and inflamed that I felt trapped in my own body. Hilary performs a full evaluation to understand the individual’s specific issues and charts a treatment to address their problems. Needless to say, I no longer feel trapped in my own body. Hilary’s excellent care and treatment has given me immense relief from the chronic pain in my neck, back and hips. Acupuncture will continue to be my go to course of treatment for the unavoidable physical strains/traumas, and Hilary will remain my first choice as a top rate practitioner.

  6. There are some people that distinguish themselves from their peers because of their passion for what they do. In the acupuncture world, Hilary is just such a person. Although she has just recently started practicing acupuncture, she has a unique gift as a healer. I felt when I walked through the door to her clinic that I had her undivided attention. She has a way of tapping into the fears and insecurities you experience when you are not healthy and making you feel not only comfortable in your own skin, but also hopeful about recovery.

  8. You have helped me more than I could ever say. I never thought I would get over my huge fear of needles, but you slowly walked me through my fears with patience and kindness. I am in awe of the relief I have received from acupuncture on my neck, shoulders and back. Thank you! You are an incredible addition to your profession. You are empathetic, motivating, knowledgeable and efficient. I look forward to continuing our treatments and fully experiencing where they can take me.

  9. Hello Hilary.

    Just wanted you to know that the treatment you did last night had a hugely positive effect on me. I slept really well, have had even emotions all day, my thumb pain has dropped to about 10% of what it has been, and I have had no abdominal pain or discomfort since the treatment―haven’t been this comfortable in ages.

    So, thank you.

  10. You really are excellent at what you do. From the acupuncture itself, to listening and caring about the patient, to making a relaxed and uplifting environment. Thank you for sharing your gift!

    Also, I was thinking today- I know so many business owners who have a million things going on. And most of them just do an adequate job or even below par in everything because they have so much going on. They are just are so unorganized. But not you! One thing I appreciate about you is that even though I know you have SO much going on in your life, you are super dependable. I appreciate your attention to detail, the notes you keep, the reminders for appointments – all of it! I don’t know if you realize how unique that is! I’m thankful for it and hope to give my clients the same quality with my business.

    Thank you!

  11. Thanks for the great “needle work” you have been doing for me the last months. It has helped so much for my skin sensitivity. I’m looking forward to more progress in 2013!

    I have enjoyed getting to know you and the talks we have had. With much appreciation.

  12. I have referred many friends to Hilary. They have all been impressed with her professionalism, attention to detail and desire to help.

    I would also add that FST has really, really helped me with mobility. I used to hardly be able to take my shirts off over my head, particularly tight yoga tops, without intense pain. I credit Hilary and your combined techniques with enhancing my quality of life!

  13. I have had chronic lower back pain for years due to injuries and surgery. Since my first experience with acupuncture years ago I have always turned to it while in pain. My acupuncturist moved in recent years and referred me to Hilary after a bad massage on vacation re-aggravated my back. I had tried chiropractic treatment 2-3x a week for 6 weeks without any positive results, after 1 treatment with Hilary I was in remarkably less pain and after continuing with treatments 1x a week I am feeling almost back to normal!

    I highly recommend Hilary, she is kind, gentle and cares very deeply about helping her patients through their pain be it physical or emotional.

    I am so happy I found her!
