I have had imbalanced hormones and heavy, irregular, periods all my life. But things really reached a tipping point when I started breaking out with cystic acne around my mouth and jawline. Every doctor I visited suggested birth control - but something about taking hormones to cover up the issues just seemed so wrong. In 2015 I found Klara and she quite literally changed my life. To make a very long story short, within a few months of regular visits she had completely regulated my cycle and cleared my skin. Over the years she has continued to help regulate my hormones, and has also treated me for everything from stomach issues, to anxiety and seasonal allergies. Her kind, calm, and understanding nature is absolutely unmatched, and I look forward to each and every visit with her knowing that I will leave feeling so much better. If you are debating trying acupuncture for the first time, or looking to find someone new, I promise you will be in good hands with Klara.
