I have suffered from migraine headaches for over 12 years. This past fall I had a migraine that lasted 2 weeks and after going to Urgent Care once and Emergency twice I was about to give up. Then my fiancé decided we should try acupuncture and see if that would give me any relief.

When I first came to Kym I was in a lot of pain, but after the first couple of sessions I started to feel some relief. After about 2 months of treatments I am pain free and able to continue with my daily life. I had about given up because the doctors had tried almost every medicine you could think of and nothing worked, but Kym helped renew my faith that my situation wasn’t hopeless.

My fiancé, our kids and I are grateful that she gave me my life back. Thanks for everything Kym!

Summer R - Endometriosis

November 2009

My name is Summer Risley and I am a nursing student. I was in chronic pain from endometriosis for over four years. Not a day or an hour went by when I didn’t have severe pain. I had three surgeries and all were unsuccessful and provided no pain relief. After multiple therapies such as Lupron shots (that put me into menopause) and Progesterone treatments (which made me gain 15 pounds), I was still in pain.

My breaking point was two months ago when my doctor told me that the only solution to my pain was a complete hysterectomy. I am only 24 years old and single and I want to have children some day. I broke down a month ago while talking to a friend from church. I told her about my chronic pain and that I had to get a hysterectomy. She recommended that I make an appointment with Kym Kleiman at Liferoot Acupuncture.

I felt relief immediately after starting the acupuncture treatments. For the first time in four years I have been pain free for the entire month. For the first time since I was twenty I am pain free. I actually stop myself after thirteen hour clinical sessions in amazement that I have no pain when before after these same clinical sessions I was unable to walk for two days.

Kym is compassionate, and caring. She explains everything to me and answers all of my questions. I am a nursing student and I was a skeptic, but you can’t argue with results. Doctors said my case was hopeless and Kym has given me hope and a life without pain.

A little over a year ago, I developed a constant vertigo. It was completely disabling. I could not do more than an hour or two of any activity at a time. Doctors, Neurologists, Physical therapists, I saw them all with no improvement. Several months ago, I visited Kym Kleiman at Liferoot Acupuncture. Her Acupuncture treatments have given me so much more of my life back. I am not cured, but now, my vertigo is manageable. I can do all sorts of things that were taken away from me. I have added acupuncture as a very valuable piece to my physical, mental and spiritual health treatment plan.

It was a car accident that started my severe headaches they were excruciating and lasted for days at a time. I have a high pain tolerance, but this was becoming unbearable after over a year of living with pain every day. I had been to my doctor and he ran all the typical tests only to find nothing. I was going to a Chiropractor for treatments. The pain was really becoming a problem. I was in pain and I was NOT happy.

I have known Kym Kleiman for almost six years. Kym had suggested several times that I give acupuncture a try but I do not like needles and put it off. Finally I gave her a call. Why not? Nothing else was working. By this time I was willing to try anything that might help get rid of these Headaches.

I started going to Kym at Liferoot Acupuncture for weekly treatments and saw improvement immediately! The problem was completely resolved within a few treatments. She is amazing and has helped restore my health when it seemed no one else had the answers.

I continue to receive Acupuncture treatments from Kym for my overall health as she helps restore the body, mind and spirit to a natural balance. I always feel much better from her treatments. It’s a great therapy and I cannot thank Kym enough for what she’s done for me. She explains the purpose of each of the treatments, as Acupuncture is not just about putting needles into various points of the body. It involves heat, liniments, herbals, and specific foods to name a few. A very important fact is that I didn’t experience any pain from the needles.

I strongly recommend Kym Kleiman as your choice for an Acupuncturist and Herbalist. You will benefit from both her natural intuition and her training.

Kym is a knowledgeable, interactive healer. She listens to the patient and seeks input in the treatment. When my daughters go to get acupuncture it is like they are going to see a friend. There are warm feelings, they feel respected, and they are at ease. The atmosphere in the office...all of the office is one of healing and caring. Kym is very good about consulting with the parent. One sees results immediately. Her depth of knowledge, talent and intuition is apparent instantly.

What I love about my appointments with Kym—aside from the fact that I always feel much better from her treatments when I leave—is the careful and considered listening she gives me.

I think this is so important to really feel heard. Because she takes her time with this, I know her recommendations are based on a deeper understanding of the totality that I’m trying to describe. Her treatments are always right on the mark and I have also benefitted many times from the Chinese herbs that she recommends as well. Her knowledge and skill as an Acupuncturist and Herbalist benefit from both her training and her natural intuition.

I trust her!

Dr. Kym and Jude have been wonderful. I moved to Tucson 35 weeks pregnant with my baby in a breech position. My mother gave me an article showing acupuncture had a 98% success rate turning breech babies. I was given a referral to Liferoot Acupuncture, but I showed up on pure faith.

Both Jude and Dr. Kym were warm and friendly. The office and treatment room was clean, calm and relaxing. I was surprised the treatment didn’t hurt. I immediately felt my energy meridians open up. After the third treatment, my baby turned head first. Each treatment left me feeling strong, peaceful and comfortable. I felt centered and all the little aches and pains were gone. Having my baby turn from a breech position was natural and painless. Thanks to Dr. Kym’s expertise, I am looking forward to a natural and comfortable delivery.

Thank you so much Dr. Kym!

Heidi M - Plantar Fasciitis

July 2009

I have been a long time friend of Kym Kleiman over the years. Her natural ability as a healer was apparent long before an institute handed her a degree saying she was such. I sought Acupuncture treatment from her for various things because of my trust in her emotionally, spiritually and physically. I knew she had studied hard and her school knowledge would now match her life knowledge when I walked through her doors my first time as her patient. The biggest issue I suffered from was Plantar Fasciitis. I had suffered from it for years, spending thousands of dollars on shoes and taking huge amounts of Ibuprofen. On certain occasions I could not walk without an apparent limp.

I experienced four Acupuncture treatments from Kym Kleiman with the plantar fasciitis as a focal point. The Acupuncture treatments were given to me over a two month period at her office. The last Acupuncture treatment I sought from her for this issue was well over a year ago. My plantar fasciitis pain completely went away and has not returned to anything near the degree I suffered before Acupuncture treatments with Kym. As a nurse, I occasionally have to massage my foot after many days of standing on it, but I have not had to take Ibuprofen or seek other treatments for this pain. Many days and nights of suffering have been alleviated for me.

Kym Kleiman is a natural healer.

For approximately six months I experienced severe left shoulder pain. I did not sustain any specific injury nor do I recall any specific activity that may have caused the pain. The pain was present throughout the day and night. I had very limited range of motion of my shoulder and I also experience radiation of the pain down my arm associated with numbness and tingling.

Initially, I tried conservative and conventional modalities, like heat, massage and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, specifically Ibuprofen. I had a great deal of trouble sleeping and could not put weight on my left side at night.

After six months I was very concerned that I would never improve. I was considering making an appointment with an orthopedist but was hesitant because I know that allopathic medicine is often unable to address musculoskeletal problems effectively.

Luckily, my massage therapist referred me to Kym Kleinman, a licensed acupuncturist. I had never had experience with acupuncture before but was very excited and willing to try this modality.

Kym has an open and gentle manner which immediately made me feel comfortable. She uses a very comprehensive approach which begins by taking a thorough history. It is important for her to know about the person she is treating. By obtaining a life’s picture she has a better understanding of why the patient is experiencing their particular symptoms and can formulate a specific treatment plan.

I was amazed at the complexity of the treatment. Acupuncture is not just about putting needles into various points of the body. It involves numerous modalities including heat, liniments, cupping, herbals, specific foods, and movement to name a few. I experienced no pain from the needles. Kym was careful to explain the purpose of any of the treatments she recommended that I had weekly for several months.

At the present time I have no pain, numbness or tingling in my upper extremity. I have almost complete range of motion and I can sleep comfortably on my shoulder. I also feel that my general well being has improved substantially. I can certainly attest to the merits of acupuncture. I think that Kym’s approach to health and well being is truly unique and restores the body, mind and spirit to a natural balance.

I have known Kym Kleiman for the past three years. She has been amazing and has helped restore my health when it seemed no one else had the answers.

It started with severe sharp pain in my left side near my stomach. Sometimes it was excruciating and lasted for days at a time. I am an athlete so needless to say, I have a high pain tolerance. This was becoming unbearable. I went to my doctor and she ran all the typical tests only to find nothing. She decided to refer me to an endocrinologist. Meanwhile this pain was really becoming a problem. I had a couple of trips to the ER only to find nothing. The endocrinologist ruled out gallstones, cancer or an ulcer. All he could come up with is a "nervous stomach." I knew one thing, I was in pain and I was NOT happy. I went back to my doctor and she suggested that I give acupuncture a try.

A friend of mine knew Kym, so I gave her a call. Why not? Nothing else was working. I didn’t know much about acupuncture, but I was willing to try anything that might help get rid of this stomach pain. I started going to Kym for weekly treatments and saw improvement immediately! I don’t know exactly how it worked, but it did and I am so pleased. The problem completely resolved within a few treatments.

I continued to see Kym when I was training for boxing and acupuncture was amazing at handling the impact injuries and keeping me "together" when I was putting so much of a load on my body. It’s a great therapy and I cannot thank Kym enough for what she’s done for me. She is a first class health professional and I would strongly recommend her as your choice for an Acupuncturist.
