Acupuncture treatment materials



cupuncture is an energy-based medicine, meaning that it works not just with your discrete body, but your own energy, or Qi (chee). Qi flows in a network of channels, just like our blood flows in a network of vessels. Blockages and stagnation in the channels of Qi energy can cause a number of problems in our body and mind, such as chronic and persistent pain, sluggishness, poor sleep and indigestion. There are certain places within that network where energy can be manipulated. We call these places acupuncture points. There are about 1,000 points throughout the body that perform very specific and powerful activities in the body. The acupuncture needle affects the way in which the energy flows, and can call upon the power of the point in order to improve health. Acupuncture works the same way in all people – it keeps a person’s energy and blood moving. When we are in balance and our blood and energy are flowing correctly, our bodies feel good and our minds become calm and clear, resulting in an improved quality of life.

At Trinity Healing we personally discuss and address your unique needs before your acupuncture session, whether it’s your first time, or you are a regular. In our welcoming, hygienic environment, you can relax knowing you’re in safe hands while we talk you through each step of the acupuncture process. Acupuncture is not painful, but the treatment can be accompanied by an amazing release and flow of energy that has to be experienced to be appreciated. Trinity Healing has the experience and knowledge to make your acupuncture session informative, healing and relaxing.

  • Kristine is the best!  She is passionate about Chinese Medicine and I know I am in good hands.  Her background is in nursing so she is very knowledgeable about how West meets East in regards to healthcare.  Once you go to Kristine you will never want to go anywhere else.  It is hard to believe how affordable she is for the services she provides.  She is AMAZING!

  • OMG, I am so glad I found Kristine. I had my first treatment yesterday and cannot wait to return tomorrow for a second treatment. She is by far the best acupuncturist I have ever worked with and I have been using acupuncture for years for I was able to go 7 hours between pain meds yesterday for the first time since injuring my back 6 weeks ago... unbelievable results. Thank you Kristine!

  • I admit I was skeptical that putting needles in me would make my back feel better, but when a friend suggested I see Kristine, I thought why not give it a try.  I had been in agony for a week, so I was totally caught off guard with how the session went.  I got there & immediately felt at ease.  It was beautiful, comfortable & relaxing all at once.  I met privately with Kristine for the initial session & then we got to the needle part.  And anyone who has had this done knows, of course it didn't hurt!  This isn't like getting a series of shots, the needles just slide in.  She had me get up & walk a little to make sure all the points were taken care of, and when they were, I leaned back in the recliner & zonked out for about an hour. I woke up feeling like a new person with absolutely no pain.  My back started hurting again a few days later, so I went back & again no pain when we were done.  Now I try to go in at least once a month for "tune ups".  My back has completely recovered & Kristine is my first call for ANY issue.  I recommend her to absolutely everyone!!!

  • I never believed that acupuncture could help my allergies, but they have improved greatly over the past few months. Kristine Buckley, MS L.Ac., is great, she is easy to talk to and takes the time to figure out what is wrong with you and how to best treat it - I highly recommend her practice.

  • Kristine just gets it, she is the BEST you will ever meet... I have worked with acupuncturists all around the Bay (from SF to Santa Cruz) and while I was in total dismay and out a LOT of money with others pimping their herbs and treatments, I was recommended this center and I tell you I will never, EVER go to anyone else. Kristine is from the traditional medical field and has combined it with Asian practice.  She has helped me beyond words, I will be forever grateful to her. I sent a friend to her.. who wasn't even a believer and it WORKED, she is off the charts.
