Testimonials


“I have tears just writing this because I am so thankful I found Free Spirit Acupuncture and Wellness Center.

It’s my second pregnancy and again symptoms of hyperemesis Graviderum. Basically- non stop morning sickness/ throwing up 20 times a day. I was at a loss because I couldn’t keep anything down and found myself in the ER for dehydration frequently.

Thank You Shawn for treating me quickly and getting me back to eating and drinking and ultimately enjoying pregnancy! Wouldn’t have been possible without you! I highly recommend them and look forward to trying other services!

Thank you! Thank You!!!!!”

“I am the caregiver for my brother, Tim, who at 52 suffered a major stroke. Acupuncture therapy was recommended to me by one of his in-home therapists. I was skeptical at first, but after seeing progressive improvement for months – I’m a BELIEVER! Tim was wheelchair bound when he first came home and through hard work, both by himself and Shawn Kissick, Tim is walking unassisted most of the time. The first-rate care is beyond the physical. Shawn extends his interest into Tim’s mental state along with mine as we navigate the path to Tim’s recovery.

If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury, get treatment as soon as possible. A brain is a terrible thing to waste.”

“I have had the utmost pleasure of being a patient of Keythe Karpinski. She has to be one of the most caring doctors I have every visited. I looked forward to every visit. She listens, offers information about treatments, and truly cares for your health. Her insights and explanations of the body’s actions and reactions were quite fascinating. She has a gentle yet exacting touch when applying the acupuncture needles and does not hesitate to educate you while she is working. I have had much success in resolving many issues while under her care. I was able to understand and resolve issues over 50 years old. She was able to calm my anxiety, ease pain from old and new injuries to my body and give me support to walk unafraid in unnerving situations. Don’t miss the opportunity to schedule at visit with her. Her soft spoken gentle manner will bring out the best outcome for whatever is holding you back from living your best life!!” 

“Keythe is one of the kindest and most knowledgeable people I’ve ever met. Her treatments literally saved me from the constant pain I was in (I liken it to trying to jam a puzzle piece into the incorrect spot). The difference I felt was profound, and my appointments with Keythe will always be my go-to for whatever ails me.” 

“Keythe is wonderful. She always start with these relaxation points that turn you into jelly before she starts the therapy that works on your specific problems. I always leave relaxed and pain free. I’ve used acupuncture for 15 years now on and off and this is the best place I’ve ever gone.” 

“This place is amazing I had a stroke and I had to wear an AFO. After about 2 weeks I was in ankle splint. Shawn is amazing and does wonders.

“Met with Shawn to help me through postpartum. After two sessions I felt immediately better, more patient with my children and myself, calmer about leaving my children for work. Fast forward 7 months I still see Shawn to help me with anxiety and energy levels needed for a working mom of two. Acupuncture has changed my life and the lens in which I use to view the world.” 

“I started seeing Dylan a few. mos. ago for severe sciatic pain. After 2 treatments, I was pain free! He then started treating me for severe anemia which required monthly IV Iron infusions for 10 yrs. My Hemoglobin was 10, ( normal is 14-18) After a few mos., my Hemoglobin is up to 16.8, and I haven’t needed an Iron infusion for over 3 mos.!! After 10 yrs. of baffled Drs. and trying everything in the book, acupuncture has turned my life around in 3 mos.! Just keep those needles coming, Dylan!! I may have a few more yrs. to live after all!”

Excellent care for joint and muscle issues. Knowledgeable staff and warm environment. Have been a patient fir several years, and my wife as well. We have both had great results from treatments. Very highly recommended!” –

“I have always believed in acupuncture but never had the chance or opportunity to try it. After weeks of my back being in discomfort to the point of not being able to walk or sleep, one visit with Brian was great relief. This morning seemed to tell the tail of myth versed reality. I slept good and my back feels 95% better. Have another appointment Thursday for a follow up with Brian and indeed looking forward to it. To me, this is living proof of the stories of acupuncture and how it works.”

“Shawn was very nice and explained the treatment to where I understood what he was doing. The atmosphere was calming and the room was nice and clean. I would recommend my friends and family. “

“It is amazing how much better my hip and feet feel when I leave here. I look forward to my next visit.” 

“Has helped back and neck pain that I have fought with for over 10 years. Amazing results. No more pain medication. You have helped me more than you could possibly know. Thank you.”

“Since I started coming here I’ve seen the severity of pain decrease and am always treated with compassion and wonderful care.” 

“I have trigeminal neuralgia and acupuncture help relieve all my pain and resulted in no long term medication. I also had foot surgery and it made my recovery time cut in half.” 

“I have had Crohn’s disease symptoms for about one year.After 1 session at Free Spirit Acupuncture & Wellness, symptoms went away for about 5 days.I continue to improve; the energy level is amazing.Thank you!”

“Acupuncture was the last option on my list when I was trying to get relief from chronic neck pain. Now I’m sorry it hadn’t been the first. Shawn, in his very professional manner in a professional and calming atmosphere talked with me about this procedure before he actually began. He helped me so very much and now when I have any issue he is my first go-to. I leave there feeling very calm, relaxed and always with less pain. I highly recommend Shawn and Free Spirit Acupuncture and Wellness Center and fell blessed to have such a fine facility and staff so close.”

Shawn takes the time to listen to what is going on with you and alerts his approach to get better results if necessary. He is more concerned with patient wellness and improvement than over treating for more money.”

“I had a condition called trigeminal neuralgia. Was given pain meds from my Dr with severe side effects. Went to spirit acupuncture. Pain is now gone. Would recommend them highly.”

“Acupuncture is still new to quite a few people and some are afraid to try it. Because I have had so much relief from sciatica, back pain and arthritis, I have recommended the treatments to folks with migraines, back pain, stomach and intestinal disorders, and general joint pain. Of the four people I personally know who tried it, three had relief. The fourth actually had nearly undetectable brain cancer so the acupuncture did not help her headaches. I tell people to not favor conventional medicine over holistic but to be open to research alternatives.”

“Highest recommendation possible. Awesome services, better than expected results.”

“Shawn was great! Just from reading my medical history he knew what to change for better health. The acupuncture was a life changing experience. After 30 years of chronic pain, after only one session I felt 100% better. I am so thrilled! The clinic was very calming and super nice. Can’t wait for my next appointment. Thank you so much!”

“Honestly, if I could start my day with acupuncture everyday, I WOULD. It was my first experience and I was sooo nervous but it was one of the most peaceful and uplifting experiences of my life.”

Shawn was very attentive to my needs and was very thorough. It was my first time doing acupuncture but he explained everything before he did it and it put my mind at ease.”

I went there with pain and left without it. It was my first time doing acupuncture. Wish I would have tried this years ago.”

I have had pain in my shoulder and triceps area for 5 months I have had steroids and 20 sessions of physical therapy with no relief until I had one session with Shawn. I am so pleased that my wife is going to see him for her chronic knee pain and she hopes acupuncture relieves her misery.”

“When I came in with neck and back stiffness and soreness I was hoping for some relief. What I got was far more than I expected. The soreness in my neck was gone when I got up from the table and my back felt great. I wish I would have done this long ago.”

“I love this new (to me) way of looking at my specific body issues. Originally, I came because I was not getting satisfactory answers from traditional medicine and was an opportunity to try acupuncture at a reduced price. Shawn has taken the time to listen to me and try some interesting approaches. He has lent me books so I can better know the traditions of Chinese medicine. I am so glad I came. I hope this is the start of a long relationship.”

“I was diagnosed with Scoliosis in my teen age years. So I have dealt with back pain all of my life. In the past I had found relief from chiropractic adjustments. In 2012 I came to Free Spirit with severe lower back pain that my chiropractor wasn’t able to relieve. Someone recommended acupuncture. I was a bit skeptical at first. But after talking with Shawn at Free Spirit, he assured me that he could get me relief. After 4 sessions I was completely healed. What sold me was that Shawn told me I didn’t need to come back unless I felt the need to do so. What doctor tells you NOT to come back?? From that day forward I knew that Free Spirit was genuinely concerned about the health of their patients and not expanding it’s client list. So now I go about 4 times a year just for maintenance sessions. Some days I go there in real pain. But when I leave I feel like a new man. I would recommend Free Spirit to anyone. I believe in them 110%.”

“I can’t say enough about how well I have been cared for by Shawn and his staff! My quality of life has improved drastically since receiving acupuncture! Thank you!”
