Testimonials

Combining Chinese herbs and acupuncture, Karu has been treating my Bakers cyst and plantar fasciitis. I am almost pain free, 98% better. Karu is a blessing in my life.
— P.D. Kapaa
Karu has been my acupuncturist for years. She has helped me heal chronic headaches, sciatica, prevent colds and flu’s. Most recently healing a long bout of eczema. Over time and with bimonthly appointments and patience all has been balanced and rebalanced. I feel heard and empowered by Karu. She has helped me in healing the rhythms and signals of my body.

Karu is one of the most amazing health practitioners I have ever worked with. I have had chronic health challenges for 10 years and though I was doing quite well the last year, recently had a flare up of Lyme Disease and co-infections (which had gone into remission) as well as horrible bladder pain, and chronic fatigue, dizziness, and complete inability to get out of bed from candida. These all re-appeared after extended and repeated use of antibiotics that damaged my immune system. I went to the ER twice before coming to Karu and countless holistic practitioners. She was able to tell me what was wrong right away by talking to me and a physical diagnosis, where other doctors just kept throwing more antibiotics at me and making the problem worse. She is so knowledgeable, so intuitive, and so caring and compassionate. She told me I would likely be able to fly out (I wast just visiting Kauai) as planned a week later and I did not believe her because I could barely make it to the kitchen or hold down food. She was right. After 3 treatments with her and a specialized regiment of herbs and supplements she put me on, I felt 75% better within a week, was able to get back home on my flight and continue healing my body from the antibiotic damage. I have seen countless holistic practitioners and acupuncturists in California and Bali and nobody came close to this amazing woman! She is truly a mountain of information and really knows what she is doing. She also has been emailing me back with my questions after I left Kauai, and continuing to help guide my treatment. I cannot say enough good things about this woman - she is an angel and miracle-worker!

When I first came to Karu I was desperate. I was defeated. A year prior I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I suffered from joint pain, fatigue, and had not slept well in years. Being in my thirties I was not ready to succumb to a lifetime of medication, so I looked for an alternative. After our first meeting I felt relieved and hopeful. I knew that with a chronic condition it would take time to see results. What I didn’t realize was just how amazing the results would be. I had no idea that I would find relief from other conditions that had plagued me for years! I have been an asthmatic my whole life and have suffered from allergies since I was a child. I no longer need daily asthma medications which is nothing short of a miracle! My allergy symptoms have greatly improved and my quality of life is so much better than it was a year and a half ago. I realized recently that I no longer feel like an “old lady” when I wake up in the morning!!! Karu has helped me to learn how important it is to have balance in my life. She is warm, kind, and patient and most importantly understands what it takes to treat the whole person... body, mind, and spirit. I am so blessed to have found such a wonderful healer. Thank you Karu for giving me my life back!
In one treatment Karu helped me with my anxiety and overwhelm and my sciatica and ankle pain. After the second treatment I felt like myself again, calm and stable. The same stress is going on but I can handle.

Karu has beautiful healing energy. A calming, loving presence, and is a powerful healer. I am a pregnant mama with a history of miscarriage and feel so safe and taken care of by her. Her acupuncture treatments are potent, and they have nourished me greatly throughout these months of my pregnancy. I was very anxious but not anymore. She is very caring and really tunes in to your body and listens...Thank you so much Karu you are wonderful :-) -A.S. Hanalei

Karu helped resolved some acute pain that was due to the type of job I perform. When I first came to Karu I had some intense pain in my wrists and strong tingly numbness in my hands and fingers. After just a few treatments the pain was almost gone and after my fourth treatment the numbness went away completely. That numbing sensation and pain has never returned. Mega Mahalo!
— D.B. Wailua
Karu has been my health practitioner for a few years now and I am so greatful for her expertise in Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. I love this holistic modality and it has been very supportive and powerfully effective. Whenever I have an acute illness like a cold or a nasty cough Karu has always seen me promptly and the treatment does wonders. I am really sensitive, tend toward anxiety and have had some chronic health issues that are greatly alleviated with her treatments. In times of stress I find great comfort in knowing I have her compassionate support to help me through. The treatments really help remove blockages and boost my vitality and immune system. She holds such a loving, non judgmental space that is very nurturing and a key aspect to having the healing unfold. Also, I don’t have health insurance and it is easy to stay in my budget with her sliding scale. I highly recommend Karu as a practitioner to help you work on any health issues you have and also to promote optimum health as Chinese medicine is a great modality for this.

Thank you thank you thank you for the really great treatments. I always make special efforts to see Karu when I am in town quarterly from Honolulu. This time around the pain in my foot that had been bothering me for the last month disappeared right after the treatment and stayed gone and my sinuses cleared up completely. Karu has the healing touch! A caring healing heart!! She helps me every time.
