I have suffered with back and knee problems for years and was recommended to Kimberly by my chiropractor. I have always been open to Eastern medicine but I was pleasantly surprised to find a practitioner that actually listens to my concerns and seeks to understand the issues before jumping into a resolution. In addition, she uses an advanced software based on probing touch-points in your hands and feet that develops a graph of how your organs are operating.
I started out coming for acupuncture for chronic pain. Now I come in once a month. For me, acupuncture is like a tune-up. When you measure my graph from visit to visit, you always find where I am out of balance. I appreciate that you can tell which problems are developing before the problem gets out of hand.
Living with back pain was just a part of my life. My family was tired of hearing me complain and I was tired of being excluded from physical activities with my friends and family. I could no longer enjoy bike rides with the family or golf with my friends. I tried pain pills, physical therapy, and massages. Nothing seemed to work and I was desperate for relief. I must admit I was skeptical of acupuncture...
I started seeing Kimberly about 18 months ago. On my first visit she spent over an hour really listening to my issues and determining the best path for ME! I was so impressed with the amount of time she spent with me and it continues every time I see her. I never leave her office feeling like I haven't gotten the very best care possible. For 15 years I have been seen by a chiropractor for various neck and back issues. I have never felt like there has been a resolution.
Kimberly’s practice was my first exposure to acupuncture. Frustrated with the limitation of western medicine’s ability to manage chronic problems, I began a journey to discover other avenues to pain management and wellness. Kimberly is confident and passionate about her practice, which is an interesting mix of ancient techniques and modern technology. Her previous experience as a massage therapist is invaluable to those of us who love the hands-on approach.
Kimberly is fantastic at what she does! I am living proof. She has remedied several ailments I've had, from terrible chronic pain, allergies, and pregnancy to sleep issues, energy levels and coping with my mother's death. I have come to her office feeling so lousy and left a new person with a bright outlook on the day and life. She is personable, understanding and respectful.
I began acupuncture treatments to reduce pain. I had tendinitis pain in my right arm from my wrist to my shoulder. I am right handed, and the pain was so bad I began to drive and do household chores as a lefty. I also had a back injury 2 years prior, that continued to cause me pain. I work long hours at a desk every day, this made my pain worse and nothing seemed to help.
I started with Kimberly over a year ago. Her style of treatment is nothing I had ever experienced. She has helped me with back and leg pain and neck pain. It is amazing how great I feel when I leave. Her approach is unique but thorough, innovative and someone who has my best interest at heart. I would recommend Kimberly to anyone who wants a fresh new approach to health care. It's worth it.
I knew very little about Acupuncture and was unsure about needles be put into my body. Then I met Kimberly Thompson she made me feel assured and confident, she was a real professional. So I decided to give her a chance. As MD's were unable to remove my knee pain. After only two treatments my pain was "gone". This was the first time in years I was pain free.
Meridian Family Acupuncture has been an all around great experience.
Kimberly is always patient, personable and on time. You can count on her office being clean and professional, which is important to me. I love how she is flexible and able to work with my busy work schedule.
After being in a car accident I had pain in my lower back and upper shoulders and neck area most of the time. I had tried to use Physical Therapy and had gotten some relief, but not on a regular basis and got very frustrated. I was asked if I had tried Acupuncture for my symptoms and I had not, but I was looking for relief and was willing to try. I was asked to keep an open mind.
I was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia about ten years ago. This is a condition which causes periods of intense, stabbing, electric shock-like pain to various locations on the left side of my face and head. Traditional medicine’s means of treating this condition is through medications that slow the function of the nerves that cause the pain (and also bring side-effects that are often more debilitating than the pain itself).
I first went to see Kimberly when my doctor recommended acupuncture as a treatment for my constant sinus pressure headaches. After the first treatment, my headaches were significantly reduced. Within a couple months, I rarely had any headaches at all. I continued treatments in order to reduce pain from an auto-immune joint disease.
I just left Meridian Family Acupuncture after receiving treatment. I was one of the first to use their new equipment and am a returning patient. The new treatment is unbelievable as I left extremely relaxed and the pain reduced to a very minimum level if not gone completely. Thanks for your great work.
“Oh WOW! I just had a BM and it HARDLY hurt compared to last week I”m so happy! It’s back to the level before surgery, which is bearable for now. I do think I can heal. YAY! I’ve felt so much better since you treated me. I just had to tell you. Thank you SOOOOOOO much!”
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful experience you gave me today. I appreciate you and respect your knowledge and experience. I’m looking forward to seeing you next week. Plus, my stomach also feels better now!
I've been meaning to let you know how labor and delivery went, but as you can guess, my hands are full and I'm exhausted! My induction began at 5am, Pitocin at 7am, baby A's water broken at 7:30am. I did get an epidural at about 11:30 and then delivered our son Mason at 12:15. Our daughter Sydney was just a short 15 minutes later.
