Catherine Burns, L. Ac.
Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Medical Qigong


Catherine Burns is a powerfully healing force to the health of our entire family. Her gentle manners and skills address a myriad of health issues that affect my family members of all ages.

Upon receiving my diagnosis of a terminal illness a friend recommended I visit Catherine Burns.  That was eleven years ago.  I firmly believe that through regular treatment Catherine has extended my life and allowed me to not only survive but thrive.  For what ails you, even if its life threatening, I highly recommend her.  Catherine Burns is a true healer.

I recently met Catherine Burns at a Qi Gong seminar.  She noticed my inflamed psoriasis and politely offered me a skin salve.  It was a Chinese Medicine herbal formula.  I applied the salve and received relief from itching and inflammation.  Thank you Catherine.


In the ten years that I’ve know her, Catherine has been a trusted healer and friend.  Her methodology is well-researched, integrative, and innovative.  She is gentle, sensitive and empathetic.  Her treatments are always deeply healing, calming, and restorative.  I look forward to every appointment with her.

I’ve been with Catherine since February 1998. By now she is an integral part of my life and I can’t imagine doing without her friendship and counsel. Catherine is a communicator and I tell her she is a natural born healer. She combines skill and training with dedicated talent.

Certainly Catherine is the backbone of my health regime. Together we fight the effects of Hepatitis C. So far western medicine has failed and I don’t expect acupuncture to be able to eradicate this terrible virus either. However, working together over the years, Catherine and I have been able to prevent the virus from causing further destruction to my liver. In addition, under Catherine’s tutelage, I’ve been able to battle symptoms of fatigue. With proper nutrition, herbs, vitamins and exercise I feel I am in better health than I was six years ago.

Indeed, one of the unexpected benefits of acupuncture is that on a weekly basis, Catherine helps me to overcome the smaller health tribulations that come and go. Some of these can be identified, such as a headache or a bladder infection or the onset of a head cold. Others are complaints that are less identifiable but just as real, such as nervous agitation or a lack of focus or (when I was on a diet) a lack of will power. Whatever our focus for the week, I leave Catherine’s office feeling better and stronger and ready for the energy challenges of the coming week.
