My experience with Karen Nunley at The Healing Acupuncture Center in Austin has been wonderful. She is very dedicated to her work and her patients. I love how she takes the time to really listen to you and dig deep to find what the best treatment for you is, she gives wonderful advice on healthy living and every time I leave her office I feel relaxed and renewed. She really has been a blessing in my life and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great acupuncturist.

I was huge, overdue, and well, you guessed it. Pregnant and over 40 weeks.Desperately searching for ‘natural alternatives’ to help induce labor (i.e get things goings, help things along) I remember I had spoken to Karen at a health fair my company was holding a few months ago. Karen explained that acupuncture could help induce labor naturally as well as relax the body.

Well there I was, 40 weeks and no baby yet. So I called Karen up to get more information and schedule an appointment. They say if your body is ‘ready’ for labor, acupuncture can help ‘get things going’. What did I have to lose?

It was either try natural alternatives or be induced via drugs at the hospital. In essence, I was trying to beat the ‘eviction notice’ my doctor had set for me.

I had never done acupuncture before, but I decided to give it a whirl. Karen was very informative and caring. The session was actually very relaxing and calming. After the 1st session I was told if ‘labor’ were to occur, it would happen within 36 hours. 36 hours later, nothing.

I went again a couple of days later, still pretty skeptical, but again with the mentality that I had nothing to lose and if anything it would be a nice 1 hour relaxation session.

By the next day, late at night I went into labor.

I can’t say that acupuncture ‘did the trick’ nor can I say getting acupuncture is a sure fire way to induce labor, but I will day that trying acupuncture out was a great experience. It may or may not have helped things along. I choose to believe it ‘did help’. Karen is also a great acupuncturist and knows what she is doing.

I’ve been going to Karen for over 4 years. She has the right touch for various issues that I’ve encountered. I highly recommend acupuncture as an alternative to drugs or in conjunction with other treatments.

I have known Karen Nunley of The Healing Acupuncture Center of Austin for over a year now. I was uninformed about acupuncture when I sought out help for a nagging shoulder injury. I was skeptical as I considered acupuncture voodoo. HOWEVER – I was pleasantly surprised by the results. During the first treatment I fell dead asleep. Total relaxation. I have found Karen, her staff to be professional, knowledgeable and caring. 5 stars our of 5 stars! I recommend this practice to anyone looking for acupuncture treatment.

Karen is a amazing person! She’s extremely attentive to my needs and I really like the way she doesn’t make me feel rushed while I’m at my appointment. Karen is the first Acupuncturist I have seen and I appreciate the way she took time to explain Acupuncture and she even gave me some background on her life. I felt an instant connection with her and already she has taught me the importance of balance in my life. She is gentle, humorous and takes time to figure out what will work best to take care of my pain. I leave her office feeling balanced and grounded and I couldn’t ask for more. Thanks Karen, you are the best.
