Relieve Your Stress with Acupuncture

You are not alone

It is hard not to feel stressed. Like you, I am a sensitive person, and life can feel very challenging at times. What is a person to do? There are many approaches to stress reduction, but one that has been consistently successful for me and my patients is acupuncture.

Why Acupuncture?

Acupuncture helps modulate the autonomic nervous system, lowering stress-related hormones like cortisol and improving overall well-being. This holistic approach not only targets stress symptoms but also promotes a sense of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Beyond Stress Relief

Acupuncture supports overall health, improving sleep, digestion, and energy levels. Treatments focus on bridging the gap between mental and physical health, fostering a deep sense of harmony.

About Your Treatment

A Tailored Approach

My practice is dedicated exclusively to women's health and beauty. I specialize in acupuncture, lymphatic drainage, and herbal remedies to help women achieve vibrant health and natural beauty. Each session is unique and adjusts to the ever-changing balance of body, mind, emotion, and environment we experience as women.

How it works

Through Acupuncture, I approach health issues by unblocking the underlying energy within our bodies. We call this energy,qi (pronounced “chee”), and our job is to identify blockages in the body and insert needles to allow qi to flow more smoothly. My goal is for you to leave your session feeling relaxed and renewed.

Pricing & Duration

  • The Signature Acupuncture treatment session lasts 1 hour and 10 minutes and costs $175.
  • The Intensive Acupuncture treatment session lasts 2 hours and 10 minutes and costs $350.

I am a 70-year-old woman who had skied, sailed and had an active outdoor life. Dr. Catherine has made me feel and look much younger. An exceptional experience.

I was very skeptical of the general idea of acupuncture, but honestly, Catherine is amazing and has totally converted me. I have to admit I still do not understand how it works at all, but it definitely works. Highly, highly recommended.

Common Questions

About Acupuncture Treatments

How long does it take to see results?

After two or three treatments, most patients feel substantially better. Some people feel better right away, while other people's results take longer. This can depend on the patient's age or how severe or seemingly protracted the condition is.

What makes your practice unique?

My practice is about creating a sanctuary where women's health is nurtured and elevated to its highest potential. I have been combining Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern wellness techniques for almost 20 years, specializing in acupuncture, lymphatic drainage, and herbal remedies, which has helped hundreds of women achieve vibrant health and natural beauty. This work is about being 100% present. One-on-one, focused attention allows me to understand my patients on a deep level. I only see one patient at a time to reduce every distraction possible to provide the best care. My goal with each treatment is to tailor an approach that suits your current state of being and helps you achieve a state of wellness inside and out.

How often should I come for acupuncture?

It is best to come weekly for a short time and then monthly for maintenance, as needed.  My goal is to get you on your way, not keep you in treatment forever.

Do you accept insurance?

I don’t accept insurance directly, but many of my clients submit for reimbursement. I can provide you with all the necessary documentation for insurance.

Do these treatments hurt?

I treat my patients how I would like to be treated, so that means needle insertions are very gentle.  Can it hurt?  Sure, about 1 in 1000 needles I insert are uncomfortable for my clients. That said, there’s a chance of bruising with Facial Rejuvenation treatments. If you are on blood thinners, please contact your doctor before booking a session.

Will I feel okay resuming work after a treatment?

Absolutely.  Please know you may be very relaxed.  Schedule a little downtime after the visit to enjoy this new presence of mind.

What should I wear for a treatment?

Loose-fitting clothing is excellent.

Should I eat anything before a treatment?

Yes, a light snack is ideal.

Where is Dr. Catherine's office?

10 Deblois Street, Newport, RI 02840, off Bellevue in beautiful Newport.

Is there parking?

There is on-street parking; just make sure to read the signage.

What’s your cancellation policy?

Appointments canceled or rescheduled with less than 24 hours' notice will incur a fee equal to 100% of the service total.

Is there a waiting area?

My entranceway is quite ample, but there is no waiting room. You’ll want to arrive within 5 minutes or so of your appointment start time, and I'll be ready to greet you.

Do you accept walk-ins?

My practice is by appointment only. This allows me to focus 100% of my energy on one patient at a time without distraction. That said, I often have a waitlist for cancellations. Feel free to text me if the date you are interested in is unavailable.
