umans have used Herbal Medicine since the beginning of time. Herbal medicine uses the natural ingredients from the Earth to maintain health, and to treat diseases and imbalances in the body. Many of these healing plants are in your local grocery store! Whether taken as a single herb or several herbs together, these healing ingredients are recognized by the body and easily metabolized, thus minimizing side effects.
Unlike Western medicine which often treats just the symptoms, herbal medicine also treats the root cause of the problem, correcting imbalances in both body and mind that may be contributing to the issue. It is truly holistic medicine.
Trinity Acupuncture buys all their herbs from US companies following Good Manufacturing Practices. The herbs are brewed into a tea, freeze-dried and ground into powder. Patients have the convenience of taking herbs in capsules, tablets or powders for good treatment compliance.
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!
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.
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 is the best acupuncturist I have ever had. I really appreciate her dedication to her patients. She understands my needs and works with me to make me healthier. I highly recommend her!
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!
