"Kara has made such a positive impact through her generosity, her friendly personable approach, her expertise and compassionate treatment of each client she receives. My teenage daughter and I have benefited greatly from powerful healing acupuncture sessions with Kara, but also from her kind and loving presence, helpful advice and support, and the nurturing environment she has created at her business. Kara is a great asset to our community, and we thank her!"
"Kara is wonderful. I’d never had acupuncture before and wasn’t sure what to expect. I can’t recommend Kara enough. She is professional. She listens and doesn’t get annoyed when you ask questions - she actually welcomes it and you can tell she enjoys explaining and providing info. She is great and I’m so lucky I found her (my back is too!)"
"Kara understands my rheumatoid arthritis condition and the inflammation coming with it. By inserting needles in the proper locations she was able to decrease the inflammation level and overcome some of the lack of feeling in my feet where I have neuropathy. In each of the three treatments I felt improvement in my affected areas. Kara explained what she was doing and how the acupuncture treatment effects the body."

"The day I arrived on board, my thighs, shins & toes were aching from my hike up to the Acropolis in Athens that morning. When I saw the services of an acupuncturist, I immediately made an appointment with Kara Haines. Due to my prior experiences back home with acupuncture treatments, I found that Kara is very experienced with a great sense of individual needs. I felt great relief of pain at the end of the first session. She also immediately asked if I would like to have 2 more sessions while on board, which I appreciated. I would be doing more intensive walking throughout this cruise. The 2nd treatment she worked with my lower back pain and legs; again there was immediate relief. On the 3rd session I came in with the beginning of a sore throat. At the end of the session the pain was subsided. Kara is so professional yet friendly; most of all she attends to individual needs to the utmost. It's wonderful to have a professional who enjoys her job! Good luck in your career!"
"I had acupuncture years ago in England so I had personal experience as to its effectiveness in dealing with digestive complaints. Aside from having Hashimotos that has contributed to my digestion being slow and battling malabsorption issues, as well as hormonal imbalances. I have had lymphatic congestion for a while that no matter what I tried: massage, exercise, but nothing worked. The acupuncture session I had has helped to work on these energy blocks and bring my body back into balance. An added bonus is its calming effect on the mind, which in my opinion is paramount in fighting any type of illness/pain. Kara is a very approachable, knowledgeable and puts you to ease instantly- quality which only serves to enhance acupuncture's health benefits. In my opinion a healer needs to walk her talk to be credible- and Kara does exactly that."
"Before we boarded, my allergies were driving me crazy. I was very irritable and was not sleeping well. I had a constant running nose, itchy throat, and sneezed every 10 minutes. Allergies have been bothering me my whole life and I have been taking medicine for them my whole life. Because of Kara and her skills in acupuncture, I no longer have allergies. I have not taken medicine for a week now!! Absolutely incredible. Kara was very polite and talked through your symptoms and addressed how she is going to get to them. We not only talked professionally but personally and it made everything very easy and made me want to go back the next day. Not only did she help my allergies but also my anxiety, irritability, and sleep!! Kara was incredible and I would book another cruise just because of her."

"I am so thrilled to have found someone to treat my whole being. I have used acupuncture as medicine for about 20 years, my former acupuncturist moved and I was devastated. I found Kara and couldn't be more thrilled. Gentle and Super Intuitive. Kara took the time to really listen to what was going on and took time to explain how she could help and why. I left feeling better than ever and know that I have a new practitioner to help me along on this health journey. She's a gift to this practice!"
"I have had treatments from 4 other acupuncturists over the past 20 years or so and you are The Best! Please know that you are The Queen of the Needle, and I received nothing but relief from our time together."
"Kara is very sweet and listen to you carefully, explain everything to you carefully as well... My daughter got so much better, now she doesn't use any medicine for her allergies, and headaches and much more......!! Thank you!! Miss, Kara!!"
