Welcome to Lightfeather Acupucture Kate Maxey Portrait

Kate Maxey, LAc, is a California and Nationally Licensed Acupuncturist with a Master’s of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her Family Practice health care blends a love and knowledge for Acupuncture, Herbalism, Massage and Yoga. She will invite you to connect with your breath, give your nervous system a break and address any health concerns that may be weighing you down. Due to the demands of our active, urban lifestyles we are in a minor state of “fight or flight” every day. By activating our “restore and recuperate” mode we give our adrenals a rest, allowing our mind to scan the body to give attention to those neglected places. When in Kate’s care, she will help you remember what it feels like to be light.

Chinese medicine is a holistic medicine, which means that the body is treated as a whole and not as separate parts. Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old technique that uses very fine needles to activate energetic centers of the body in order to bring balance and health. Both acupuncture and Chinese herbal prescriptions are designed with the individual in mind so that the root of the problem is identified for long-term healing.

Acupuncture can treat such things as:

Acute & Chronic Pain Digestive Problems Gynecological Issues Sciatica
Allergies Ear Ringing Migraines Skin Disorders
Anxiety Fatigue Post-stroke TMJ
Depression Fertility Pre-/Post-surgery Care Weight Loss
Detox/Addiction Insomnia Pregnancy/Post-natal Wrinkles

Whether you are coming in for “Preventative Healthcare” or to address a nagging issue that you haven’t found relief for in other places, Lightfeather Acupuncture and Integrative Health is prepared to help you feel better!
