Testimonials from Actual Patients:


My first treatments with Dr. Kathryn Grady were for torn and herniated discs in my neck and lower back. I had tried chiropractors, physical therapy and pain management without any improvement. After a few treatments I saw great improvement. After a month or two I went from continuous neck and back pain to virtually pain free. I also suffer from chronic migraines. At first I got a treatment whenever I got a migraine, which gave me relief. I have found however that with regular weekly treatments there is a significant decrease in the frequency of my headaches, from one or more each week to less than one a month. Dr. Grady has helped me with any problem I’ve had and I have never felt better. I have more energy, no aches and pains, and feel an overall healthy balance thanks to her.

I came to Dr. Grady with a host of problems. I had never tried acupuncture and did not have much confidence in non-western alternative therapies, but over the past few years I had gone to a number of specialists, tried various therapies, and taken multiple medications to no avail. Nothing helped me deal with insomnia, hot flashes, joint pain, digestive problems, neuropathy, and more. I was miserable and I felt I had nothing to lose. So, I figured I would see what Dr. Grady could do for me.
In my initial visit, Dr. Grady prioritized my symptoms and developed a treatment plan. In only a week or two, I began to improve. I was amazed that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medication could so quickly resolve problems that had persisted for years. As I have continued treatment with Dr. Grady, major underlying ailments continue to diminish each week. In addition, if I come in with a temporary problem such as a cold or strained muscle, that too is cured in virtually a single treatment.
I cannot recommend Dr. Grady highly enough. Her treatment and prescriptions are effective. And, I can assure those who have never tried acupuncture, that it is not painful. In fact, it is fascinating. There is a sensation of flowing energy that seems to restore the body to health. Even though I had little prior knowledge of Chinese medical theory, in discussing what I felt during treatments with Dr. Grady I have learned that my sensations precisely follow the anatomy of subtle nervous system.

I sought acupuncture for my severe low back pain due to pregnancy. Since I was pregnant, I had limited options as far as what could be done to relieve my pain. I had never had acupuncture, but I thought it was worth a try. Kathryn explained the Eastern and Western philosophies behind acupuncture. She also explained that although she would not place the needles directly in my back where the pain was (as this could possibly induce labor), she could place them in the acupuncture points in my ears. After the second visit, I had substantial improvement and continued to improve greatly with each following visit. Thank goodness for Kathryn, because I was in a lot of pain, and the treatment she gave me relieved my back pain in a way that was safe for both me and my baby.

I was in a lot of pain and thought I had a bladder infection a few months ago. I went to see Kathryn as I wanted to go the most natural way and she calmed me down so much and evaluated my symptoms. I get very nervous with needles and usually pass out but she reassured me with how gentle acupuncture was. Not only was the treatment sooooo gentle but Kathryn was so soothing. I didn’t feel afraid or queezy. I didn’t feel the needles AT ALL! I could feel something happening to my body though... a very cool feeling... It was like my body was rapidly being healed. She gave me some herbs to take and called to check on me. In 2 days I was back to normal! I felt so great that I didn’t have to take a bunch of medication! I would recommend her highly!!!

Kathryn has brought me great relief in a very short amount of time. Her depth of knowledge is amazing, but what I find even more refreshing is the fact that she truly cares about my health and well-being. She takes the time to listen to everything that is going on in my life so that she can properly treat me. Her positive outlook on life gives me something to look forward to when I go to see her. She has truly helped me, and I am grateful to her.

I am a patient of Kathryn Grady’s and would like to tell you about my experiences with her services. I started having chronic lower back pain in 2001 and had back surgery to relieve the pressure of the herniated discs. The surgery helped but there was still a constant dullness and pain in my lower back. I then went on to pain management, which temporarily fixed the problem with prescription drugs and lower back injections. But as soon as I stopped the medicine the pain came back. I knew I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life taking medicine to cover up my problem so I contacted Kathryn to see if she could help me. Kathryn was very knowledgeable about my problem and with a few questions we set up a treatment plan to see if we could get me pain free. By the second treatment I noticed drastic results in my pain level and also my energy level. We continued treatments for approximately 6 months until I was back to being active and pain free. Katie helped me tremendously and was very friendly and courteous along the way and that is why I would highly recommend her to anyone.
