[1] I have had diabetes for the past 15 years and have been looked after by regular doctors and prescribed standard medication for diabetes, during the past 5 years my legs started going soft on me, making it difficult for me to walk natural. Regular medication was not helping me. I had numbness in my feet and unsteady, after a few treatments of acupuncture by Dr .Hakim, the circulation picked up tremendously in my legs. I have had twelve treatments and my legs are the best they have been in years. Recently I went dancing at a house party, and danced for 2 hours without having any difficulties. Dr. Hakim is also working on my sinus problem and also she has been working on my eyes for a big improvement. I am taking different herbs recommended by Dr. Hakim and they seem to be working wonders.
Two weeks ago I had a complete blood test required by my regular doctor, who I hadn’t seen in 6 months. He looked over the results and stated: “Ray, I can’t find anything wrong with you”. First time I have heard that in years.
I highly recommend Dr. Katayoon Hakim in the field of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.

[2] My name is Chris. I am a patient of Kathy Hakim, Acupuncturist.
I received treatment for severe Back conditions, scoliosis, arthritis, eroded disc and spinal stenosis, to name only part on my condition.
After 4-5 treatments I no longer walk bent over and I can walk further without pain. Before I could only walk for 7-8 minutes without pain, now I walk 30-45 minutes. The sensation in my right knee has returned and my overall condition is much improved.
I highly recommend Kathy. She is considerate, her skills and credentials are great.

[3] For years, I’ve suffered from phantom leg pain, due to an amputation, and chronic backaches, requiring powerful pain medication, along with other health problems, such as hypertension and high cholesterol. Since being treated by Dr. Kathy Hakim, with acupuncture, herbs and vitamins, I’ve reduced the pain medication by one half. Also, my Kaiser Doctor is amazed by the total cholesterol reduction and the increase in the “good” (HDL) cholesterol.

[4] Kathy Hakim is a gentle and diligent practitioner who has made a big difference for me. I was suffering so badly from headaches-inducing “rebound headache” compounded by prescribed migraine medications-that in February 2002, I needed to be hospitalized by a team of MD s. Since then, I have pursued alternative treatment with Kathy Hakim and the headaches have gradually gone away. Thanks to Kathy’s knowledge, skill, and support, I have modified my diet and lifestyle in ways I never knew would have such an impact on my health. Now I feel better and I have new hope.

[5] My name is Rudy Hill and I have had problems with lower leg circulation and also sinuses. Talking with a friend of mine, he also had the same problem and he recommended to try acupuncture which he had and been working for him. I went to Kathy Hakim, Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist. She explained to me how acupuncture works and recommended some herbs. Now just after few sessions I have notice sufficient improvement in my leg, sinuses and general health. I would deeply recommend people to try Acupuncture with her.
