I had been having back problems for a couple of years with back spasms for months, I had gone to my regular GP, to a chiropractor, PT and then finally received shots in my back, the next step was to have my nerves severed so I could not feel the pain. Then a coworker told be about Cardinal acupuncture I met with Kathy and after 5 appointments it really was a new way of feeling, I did go back semimonthly for a year then quarterly thereafter but that was just for tune ups and all around wellbeing visits. Before you do anything drastic check out Cardinal acupuncture. As a rule this kind of stuff is not my deal but I sure am glad I did because 2 years after I started with her my
appendix almost burst and if they had clipped my nerves in my back I might not have felt the pain and gone to the doctor.

I wanted to tell you how much your treatment of acupuncture helped me with my vertigo. I had suffered from vertigo for over a month and after one session I felt 90% better immediately and 100% back to myself after one week. I will use Cardinal clinic again should the need arise. Thank you very much.
"I didn’t realize how frustrated I was with “traditional” methods of dealing with infertility until I went to see Kathy. One of my main problems was my irregular cycle, and “Western” medicine didn’t seem to have any way to address that. When I explained my situation to Kathy, she immediately recognized that I needed an approach other than just medication to be able to get pregnant. We started regular acupuncture
treatments along with some herbal supplements. Beyond that – and perhaps most importantly – Kathy always provided a listening ear, thoughtful counsel, comforting and encouraging words, and a reassuring smile. After several months of treatment, I began having more regular cycles, and ultimately, the combination of Kathy’s efforts and some Western medicine was successful. I am now the proud mom of a healthy, happy six-month-old boy. Thanks, Kathy, for playing a critical part in my journey to parenthood!" -RS
"Kathy helped make what seemed like an impossible dream come true. I was 29-years-old when I suffered my first miscarriage. After seeking help from a specialist in reproductive medicine I came to learn I had an FSH of 21. Many tests were run and it seemed like it would be difficult for me to conceive again. However, after seeing Kathy for weekly acupuncture, and with the help of fertility drugs, I conceived again shortly afterward. Unfortunately, it ended in a miscarriage. Determined not to give up, I continued to see Kathy for acupuncture on a regular basis. Nine months later, with the help of Eastern and Western medicine, we conceived our daughter. Acupuncture helped me maintain relaxation and balance I needed during a stressful time, and I am certain that Kathy's expertise and patience helped us get our healthy, beautiful baby at long last." - AS
"My acupuncturist is Kathy Carey. She gave me treatments for months after my stroke and she is responsible, I feel, for why I can walk, drive, talk without stuttering and stammering, and remember things for more than a few hours (none of which I could do before she started the treatments)" - Michael
"Dear Kathy, I am excited to tell you that Steve and I had a baby girl! We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you so, so much for your medicine, herbs, needles, counsel and patience. You made our dream come true!" - All the best, Steve, JoAnne and baby
"I have been seen by Kathy Carey for my facial paralysis. I have had the condition for four months and since I've been getting acupuncture, there has been great improvement. I've even had a person say they can't even tell I had the condition. I'd highly recommend Kathy to anyone seeking Asian Medicine." - Sheri
"Dear Kathy, I just wanted to let you know about the birth of my twins. Thanks for all the help getting us pregnant!" - Marianne
" I have been a paitent of Kathy Carey since 2003, when I would see her during her clinical shifts as a student of Asian medicine. I was so pleased when I found her after she graduated! Kathy is professional and personable and treats the whole patient, mind body and spirit, withe her pleasant, easy-going personality and her gentle touch. I know that Kathy is committed to providing the highest quality care for her patients because she continues to keep up with the best practices of Asian Medicine. I have been treated for a wide variety of health issues including: colds, eczema, PMS and knee injuries from marathon training. I find that the acupuncture, body work and herbs that Kathy integrates into my treatments have been effective in my overall stress management and have significantly improved my energy level and my health and wellness. Anytime I have an issue arise, I can be sure that when I call Kathy, I will be seen promptly and be provided with the best quality care by a compassionate and effective healer. I strongly encourage anyone to integrate acupunture into their health regimen." - AZ
"I don't know if it was the bitter tasing herbs, or the acupuncture treatment that did it, but I'm happy to let you know that I am pregnant! Thanks for your help, Kathy." - Beth
"I felt welcomed the first moment I walked into the clinic and could tell that Kathy really cared about her patients' well-being. I started going for treatment for infertility when trying to conceive a second child. We had an easy time getting pregnant with our first child, but had been trying to get pregnant for about a year and a half before starting fertility treatments. I had 3 IUI's and the last one resulted in a pregnancy and then a miscarriage. I decided to take a break from the fertility treatments and just focus on practicing more yoga and acupuncture. I got pregnant three months later, and am happy to report that I am 21 weeks along and we are having another boy. I am so thankful to Kathy for her encouragement, faith, herbs and needles!" - Heather, Stillwater, MN
