Testimonials

“Colleen is an absolutely incredible acupuncturist and healer. I’ve long been a distant fan of acupuncture, but only recently started receiving it regularly, and I’m so grateful to be receiving it from Colleen. She has a warm, empathetic presence, and listens deeply before beginning each session – I always feel heard, understood, and deeply cared for during our sessions. I love that she incorporates essential oils and Reiki into her treatment work as well. She has helped me get through a difficult health challenge with far more ease than I could have mustered on my own, and for that, I’m deeply grateful. I would highly recommend Colleen to anyone!” –EB, 33 years old

“I started seeing Colleen as a result of a gift certificate, and what a gift she has been. I had reached a point where traditional western medicine was just not enough. What started as an event has become a process because I immediately saw results. She is not only very knowledgeable and skilled at what she does, but she is a gentle soul, kind and compassionate to her core. She truly cares. She doesn’t just do amazing acupuncture or healing with oils – she empowers you to heal yourself and then becomes your cheerleader!” –JM, 65 years old

“I have been seeing Colleen for several months now for various health issues/conditions.  She was very thorough in getting my initial health history and at each treatment session, she follows up on what we discussed at the previous treatment session.  She is very knowledgeable, compassionate, caring, and skilled with a gentle touch and application of acupuncture needles.  She knows just what essential oils are needed to complement the acupuncture treatment session.  She also always greets with me a smile.  I highly recommend Colleen!” –AD, 47 years old, Licensed Massage Therapist

“Colleen is amazing. She is so multi-talented and deeply knowledgeable. She helped me tremendously and I have recommended her to everyone. Whether it’s an emotional, mental or physical issue, Colleen is able to offer healing, reduce pain, and calm you. She is an incredible listener. You are in a private space that feels beautiful, calming, and safe. I’m on the west coast now, but while I lived in North Carolina, I would see Colleen regularly. She also offers donation-based acupuncture once a month in her commitment to make healing accessible to anyone, regardless of financial background. Her heart is in her work and the healing is powerful because of that.” –AB, 34 years old

“I was Colleen’s grateful client in Portland, Oregon for a year, and with pride have followed her journey east as she shares her healing services, joy, and compassion with North Carolina.  I was in such good hands — literally — with Colleen.  Whether she was gently inserting acupuncture needles into meridian points, sliding cups on my back to relieve decades-old tension, or burning moxa for another therapeutic adventure, I had much faith in her intuitive and highly educated guidance. In our sessions we worked on many issues — physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual — and I always felt more relaxed, hopeful, and listened to after each one.  Colleen is a special person, and her inner strength and light will be evident to anyone who spends time with her.  I highly recommend Colleen as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine.” –JULIE SCHOLZ, Director of Development for Coalition of Community Health Clinics

“I’ve been a patient of Colleen’s for about five months, and my experience has been remarkable. As a practitioner, Colleen brings deep intuition, sensitivity, discretion, wisdom, and practical knowledge to the table. She is gentle, highly perceptive, and connected. She has a large cache of information about the world of Chinese medicine, and she’s able to weave that information into sessions in a way that is ‘just enough.’ I am so grateful that our paths crossed!” -KN, 40 years old

“I’ve seen many different acupuncturists over the course of the past 5 years and Colleen is my favorite! I appreciate Colleen’s focused yet relaxed atmosphere and her attention to detail. She spent extra time talking about a few of my concerns that most doctors just smile and nod and ignore when I talk to them about! She’s also a great price, especially for the time and attention she gives you during your time together!” -CN, Chiropractor

“I had never received acupuncture before going to The Balance Point Acupuncture & Wellness, and Colleen was extremely patient and took the time to explain what to expect, as well as made sure she was fully aware of both physical and emotional stuff happening with me. She is extremely gentle and perceptive. I felt very safe and well cared for throughout my consult and during my initial treatment. Since then I have made it a point to go at least once a month (I’d like to go more if I could make room in my schedule)! Also, it’s easy to find The Balance Point, as well as to park, and the office itself is very welcoming.” -AH, 29 years old

“My first acupuncture experience was with Colleen. I didn’t really know what to expect, but was delighted with the experience and the results. Colleen is knowledgeable, gentle, intuitive, responsive and she excels as an acupuncturist. The results were obvious in my body, and she also suggests other ways to help manage my issues, be it essential oils (the ear liniment is EXCELLENT) or other treatments. I really like that. At this time of year, I plan to go for treatment every two weeks, and as the weather warms, every month. More often if I need her for something specific. You will be extremely happy if you make Colleen one of your healers. She works wonders and magic!” -BR, 55 years old

“Simply stated, Colleen is a healer. She uses the tools of her profession with expertise and wisdom, and in addition, she uses her heart. Your healing will begin even as you enter her compassionate and graceful presence. I leave every session with Colleen feeling as though I danced with her to better health.” –FP, 63 years old
