Helene J - Lower extremity pain

December 2011

Healthcare is a partnership between you and your provider. Over the past several years, I have worked in partnership with Kym Kleiman M.Ac., L.Ac. at Liferoot Acupuncture in Tucson with truly excellent results on the physical, emotional and spiritual level. When I began getting acupuncture from Kym, I was in extreme pain in my feet and legs, very overweight with no desire to do anything about it and emotionally and spiritually tired of being. My life had become very limited. Not because of the pain, but just because.

Today, I am pain free and much more mobile, I have a joy of being, and I am doing things I only thought about and I am losing the weight. Kym listened, worked hard to adjust my treatments to my needs and has demonstrated not only an outstanding proficiency in her craft but a genuine concern and care for my whole being. What more could one ask for in partnership when bettering one’s life? The key is the work you both commit to, the willingness to try different approaches in the treatment and the honesty between you and your provider as you go through the process. I found all of this with Kym Kleiman M.Ac., L.Ac. and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Father Bob - Emphysema

December 2011

I am an octogenarian Roman Catholic priest diagnosed with stage 3 emphysema and 50% lung capacity. After being told to stay as active as I can and that nothing more medically can be done, a nurse referred me to Kym Kleiman at Liferoot Acupuncture in Tucson. I have been a lifelong skeptic about alternative approaches to medicine. With hesitation I went with the least bit of hope that something good might happen.

To my amazement, returning home I climbed the stairs without huffing and puffing. I was so surprised I did it again with a witness to verify it.

The skeptic has become a believer because I know now, after 5 treatments, I am breathing easier and better. I am still amazed at what is happening with me and I am grateful for it.

Roxi S of Seattle - Respiratory Ailment

November 2011

Just before I left for vacation in Tucson, I came down with a respiratory illness Luckily, my Tucson friends were acquainted with Kym Kleiman’s healing abilities and gave me a referral to see her at Liferoot Acupuncture in Tucson. Kym fit me into her busy schedule the next morning. She put me at ease immediately with her calm, competent, compassionate manner, then treated me with cupping, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs. Amazingly, later that same day I felt so much better I hit the tennis courts!

Thanks to Kym’s effective treatment, I could really enjoy the rest of my vacation.

I had been suffering from tennis elbow for about 1 year. I tried massage and went to my chiropractor. While both treatments helped, as soon as I went back to normal activities, I was again in pain.

I went and saw Kym and was absolutely amazed at the pain relief I achieved after the first treatment. I would say I felt about 75% better after that first treatment and daily activities did not aggravate my elbow. I am now on my 4th treatment and I’m only getting better.

Once the elbow is fixed I can’t wait to see what else she can help me with!

Cynthia M, R.Ph. - Joint Inflammation

August 2011

Dear "Dr. Kleiman:"

Even with this awful humidity, my knees and ankles are much improved this week. I am walking much better and the aching has decreased substantially. The Acupuncture treatments are lasting much longer now, and I am so pleased! Being a pharmacist it would seem I would reach for traditional medicines first, but in fact, since beginning the Acupuncture Treatments and taking the Herbal Formulas I have stopped ALL anti-inflammatory drugs and still have great results. I am also sleeping much better.

Thank you Vanessa and "Dr. Kleiman."

Wendy L (for Rebekah 15 years old) - Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

March 2011

In September 2010 Rebekah’s aunt suggested that we try Acupuncture for pain management. This was a "last resort" attempt to combat her pain due to Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (crps). Rebekah’s former medical treatment involved several pain medications that left her feeling tired and depressed for over a year. She has been receiving Acupuncture for 7 months and is now 100% pain-free, and medication-free.

We owe it all to Kym Kleiman M.Ac., L.Ac. of Liferoot Acupuncture for her superb treatment.

The Lee’s - Shingles (Herpes Zoster)

March 2011

We have been dealing with mom’s Shingles (Herpes Zoster) nerve pains since Sept. of last year. It has been 5 months and it seems like she has not had any relief. All the medication the doctors order for her just made her condition worse. She would hallucinate and scream for hours. It was very difficult for my husband and myself to deal with her nerve attacks. We did not know how to calm her down, and many times it was very scary for me. Finally, my sister mentioned that we should try acupuncture.

Kym, know how pleased we have been with your practice. You customized mom’s treatment plan to fit her needs. Your skills, experiences and ability to treat her as an individual have truly changed her life. Her pain has lessened after each treatment. Her hallucinations are gone. Your focus on Chinese herbs has helped her to sleep better at night.

Special thanks to your staff, Vanessa and Jude, in scheduling her appointments and reminding us when to come in.

We recommend Kym Kleiman M.Ac., L.Ac at Liferoot Acupuncture to anyone who is in severe nerve pain. They will surelybenefit from her care. Instead of suppressing symptoms, acupuncture helps the body to stimulate balance and healing.

Lisa B RN - Allergy Relief

February 2011

When I started receiving Acupuncture from Kym Kleiman at Liferoot Acupuncture in Tucson a few months ago, I had recently met the man of my dreams,except he has4cats and I was terribly allergic to cats. I had to find something to help me get past the allergy so I could stay with this man. Also, I had bad seasonal allergies, and I was hoping to find relief for that too.

After only a few Acupuncture treatments with Kym Kleiman, my allergies are about 90% better, andI can be at my man’s house and not suffer fromthe cats. I also feel like my immune system and mygeneral constitution is stronger.

Kym knows how to customize her work to what her client needs. She can help with all kinds of problems that a person might have,physical and emotional.I find my sessions to be so relaxing. I use it as a way to find down time after a hard week at work. Kym has changed my life for the better in more than one way.

Thanks Kym! Oh, and her staff is also wonderful.
