Conditions Treated by Acupuncture
Arthritis and Joint Pain
Neuropathies and Numbness
As an older woman "sot" in her ways, I've always been leery of acupuncture. But Kiné has made a believer of me. I'm walking around today with less pain in my neck than I've had for months, so I can speak from experience when I say she's superb: caring, careful, competent and knowledgeable.
Chronic Neck Pain Relief
Patient Since December 2008
I've had acupuncture for years with a variety of practitioners. Allie is definitely one of the best; empathic, knowledgeable, and takes the time to listen before each session. I look forward to each visit for relief from chronic neck pain and general fine-tuning.
Acu w/ Allie
Patient Since February 2016
I started seeing acupuncturist, Allie Machen, to treat an acute post-surgical swelling issue. She not only completely eliminated the swelling, but helped with chronic issues in my back and neck. She has since treated me for everything from digestive to sleep issues. I've decided to see her once a month for maintenance.
