"I started seeing Kiné in January 2014. I reached out to Willow Tree Wellness with the main goal to restart my body after having been through multiple unsuccessful fertility treatments. I felt like I needed a break from the emotional, physical, and financial stress of infertility.

When I first met with Kiné she did a thorough health history. Kiné asked so many questions about my treatments and I could tell she was working harder than my previous Reproductive Endocrinologist to try to find some answers.

Her treatments are very relaxing and her demeanor leaves you feeling encouraged. My plan was to see Kiné for about 3-6 months before seeing an RE here in Portland. She gave me recommendations on diet, exercise and overall wellness to help optimize and boost my fertility.

Kiné was very honest with me and said given my case and history she did not feel like acupuncture and chinese medicine alone would result in a pregnancy, but that it would be a good adjunctive therapy to support any further treatments. I appreciated that she did not give me empty promises throughout my treatments with her.

After seeing Kiné for 7 months I found out I had achieved a spontaneous pregnancy. I was cautiously optimistic about things and she truly helped put me at ease through my first trimester. She helped me to stay positive and healthy and not be consumed by the fear of something going wrong given my previous experiences. Every time I went to see her she gave me so much positive reassurance and answered all of my questions. Since you don't typically see an OBGYN until 10-12 weeks, I was so thankful to have weekly visits with Kiné. She put my mind and body at ease, and all of the fear and doubt would seem to disappear after a treatment.

I know that not everyone is lucky to have these results, but Kiné is an amazingly caring, comforting, and attentive team member to have. I would have highly recommended her regardless of whether or not I got pregnant. I am so thankful to her and everything she has done for me. I will continue to see her and refer her for a long time to come."*

"Before finding Kiné I had done extensive research on fertility acupuncture and what to look for when choosing your provider. It was important for me to find someone who had the experience and credentials (FABORM) for specialization in fertility. Kiné was one of the first that I came across and after reading her reviews I knew I had to meet her. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for over 2 years with a miscarriage and 2 unsuccessful IUI's in between. We had been labeled with " unexplained infertility" and if you are someone who has been slapped with this label you know how discouraging and helpless it feels.

 

Acupuncture and Kiné have been the best thing that's has happened to me. Within the first week of working with her, I felt at peace and more relaxed than I had in a very long time. Within my first cycle of treatment, to my immense surprise, I was pregnant. I wasn't sure about acupuncture and Chinese medicine before, but you better believe I am now. Kiné takes the time to get to know you and your situation. She doesn't pigeon hole you into being just another case. She asked me questions my primary provider had never even considered. It was quite refreshing, if you haven't tried acupuncture yet, I strongly recommend seeing Kiné, you won't regret it."*

"Kiné is absolutely amazing!  I began seeing her about 2 years ago when I was trying to conceive baby #2 after a miscarriage.  I knew nothing about acupuncture, and was a bit skeptical and very apprehensive, but desperate for help that my OB was unable to provide.  Kiné was comforting and compassionate the second I walked in the door, in my teary and depressed state.  Her treatments and herbs did the trick, and within 2 months I was pregnant, and went on to deliver my sweet, wonderful and healthy baby! 


Kiné is a master at her practice and is a wealth of knowledge.  Over the years, I have continued to see Kiné for a bunch of other reasons - a pinched nerve in my shoulder, a sinus infection, a weird eye twitch, hormone imbalances and general well-being to name a few.  I always look forward to my appointments, and after every visit, I feel emotionally and physically better than when I walked in the door.  I plan to continue seeing her for years to come!"*

"Strong Recommendation! Kiné Fischler was recommended to me for acupuncture and herbal care by my midwife after two miscarriages. I cannot say enough about how supportive and revitalizing Kiné's care and treatments have been as I prepare to become pregnant again. Kiné makes a point of asking questions, taking time to listen and understand her patients' needs, and is fully present during each session. I strongly recommend Kiné to anyone seeking acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal support."*

"I came to Willow Tree Wellness Clinic after months of trying to conceive after miscarriage.  The heartfelt care and understanding I received from my initial visit with Kine was far beyond what I expected.  She takes the time to listen to my concerns and needs and has been a huge comfort to me.  2 months of treatments and I'm finally pregnant again!  I plan on continuing care with Kine through my entire pregnancy.  I've never felt so healthy and centered as I have since my first visit.  I'm so happy to have her as part of my health care team and can not recommend her enough!"*

After a long and difficult journey, I felt different that day about our chances of conceiving, in part because the acupuncture helped my body feel more receptive. I continued with the acupuncture until a couple of days before delivering my baby, and have returned post partum.

My first experience! WONDERFUL! During my second pregnancy, my midwife suggested acupuncture prior to labor and delivery. I had never had acupuncture before, but was excited to try it out, if I could find the "right" caregiver. Enter Kine!!! I was drawn to Kine because of her extra studies and training in women's and children's health. Because I was new to the treatment, I didn't know what to expect, but I knew right away I was in caring and capable hands. I will definitely be using acupuncture now as a regular part of caring for my health. Thanks, Kine!

I recently moved to Portland and started seeing Allie for acupuncture to treat neck pain and a hematoma from a surgical procedure. There was marked improvement after her first treatment. She is an empathic healer and patient listener, who I'll be seeing regularly for general wellness. I highly recommend her and Willow Tree Wellness Clinic's soothing environment.

I needed help following an arduous and eventful trip to Portland from my home in the UK. I suffer from extreme difficulties with my spine. As a result, I find walking difficult and experience a high degree of pain, but after several hours in aircraft the pain became unbearable. I know jen is an excellent therapist from previous treatments, but she certainly found the right locations to ease my pain dramatically. Not only that, she certainly is a great listener and sincerely reassuring.

I personally turned to Kiné for acupuncture treatments after being knocked off my bike from a car door. The results of her treatment were exceptional.

Kine has been treating me for a variety of things ranging from muscle pain to stress to detox'ing and has been fantastic. Her electro-stim treatment for a wrist injury was a huge help with managing pain. She is great!

"I went to see Kiné for a shoulder injury I sustained this winter (icy stairs!). I've had limited range of motion and intermittent pain for three months, and it was starting to cramp my sporty lifestyle - racquetball, tennis, and softball all set it off for a day or two. Kiné did a fabulous combination treatment; she worked on my shoulder directly and applied electro-stimulation, as well as hitting some related points elsewhere.It's been a week now, and my shoulder feels SIGNIFICANTLY better. I've almost got full range of motion again, and it hasn't hurt at all, even after a Sunday tennis sesh. The office is lovely, clean, and calming and I was able to relax completely during my treatment (that's something in and of itself!). Kiné has a soothing and straightforward manner, and she takes insurance. A wonderful experience."*

"Since seeing Allie Machen LAc at the Willow Tree Wellness Clinic, (unbelievably) my daily headaches have vanished!  I am not one to make big promises and exaggerate since everyone is different...however, I have had productive treatments with her!  She is talented and humble, as good as it gets!" *

"I hadn't had much luck previously with acupuncture, but I hadn't seen Kiné yet! I saw her regularly during a particularly difficult time while I was doing weekly chemotherapy treatments with a Western physician. She not only helped make the chemotherapy bearable, I believe her treatments put me ahead of the curve. I was responding well and feeling better than a lot of my "chemo-sisters". She sat with me at the beginning of each of our appointments and checked in with me, recording my symptoms and complaints and then enthusiastically and knowingly got to work with her needles and herbs.  She explained what she was doing in a way that I could understand and without being overwhelming. I don't know what I would have done without her treatments these past few months. I am certain her therapies kept me on track and rebounding well enough between chemo treatments that I never had to miss an infusion." *

"Excellent care and skilled practitioner! I have received amazing results from the acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbs Kiné Fischler has provided. Kiné is both an intuitive and informed/educated healer with fantastic skills in both listening and researching. She has helped me in ways beyond the scope of my initial "complaint" and I continue to see benefit from each visit. I highly recommend her for treatments both specific and for overall wellbeing.A practitioner with professionalism,... Kine listened to my concerns, related to me on a personal level, and was able to identify what I needed to help me with a long-term gastrointestinal issue...I would recommend her to anyone looking for excellent care and specialized treatment. She is a gem!" *

"Kiné is amazing and really helped me through some difficult Post cancer treatments.  Her skilled, healing hands were  perfect.  She was very intuitive and gave me some wonderful herbs to help de-tox my system. Her treatment after my radiation really helped jump start my immune system and get me feeling back up to speed within months. She is gentle and funny, and has an incredible outlook." *

"I place a high importance on good communication from an acupuncturist, which Kiné completely understands. I have never hesitated to consult her if I'm having a concern because I know she is willing to listen and discuss. I was apprehensive about starting with a new acupuncturist when I first moved to Portland, but Kiné exceeded my every expectation and helped me find relief from ailments that have plagued me for years. She truly has been an amazing support for me and my family, and I am so grateful to have found her." *
