Anxiety-Mental/ Emotional Stress

“I sought treatment for anxiety and a medical condition called A-fibrillation.  My experiences with Kathy and acupuncture have made me a believer.  My A-Fib episodes have gone from almost every other week to …..Well, it’s been 2 months now!  I do believe that acupuncture along with other therapy have helped make me a more confident person.”

Rita Salsbery, age 66  Summit County, CO

“I have told everyone I know that I consider Kathy Castrigno to be the best: primary physician, mental health counselor, acupuncturist I have ever met. In fact I honestly say after working with her for several years now, I have never been helped so much by any one person in my life. I am truly blessed to call her my friend. She has saved my back…and…saved my marriage. We now work together to rid my subconscious of the self destructive anxiety and stress that has continued to cause disease, physical pain, depression and addiction in my life. She is an unselfish healer who lives her life to give to others. I now live a more peaceful, pain free life thanks to Kathy.”

“I just moved up to the county and experienced a miscarriage shortly after our move. I am all about holistic healing and so because my body needed to be rebalanced, acupuncture was the right choice for me. I started asking around and Kathy was highly recommended to me by another expecting mommy. I gave Kathy a call and instantly connected with her! Kathy has this wonderful way of listening to me and making me feel valued during our sessions. I feel she truly cares about my well-being. Kathy listens to my concerns and how I feel. I have experienced the most “positive shifting” sessions. She has changed my life in the most positive way. I feel healing and restored and balanced.”

Kristyn Leary,

Not only is Kathy as wonderful acupuncture therapist, she is also an amazing life coach. She has helped me change things I didn’t know I could change – me and my old way. You Can teach an old dog new tricks! I feel happier, more balance and more open. I’ve been sleeping better and my blood pressure is lower!! Her “tapping technique” that I learned helps me to get through rough parts of my day with a positive result. Thanks Kathy!! I’m much healthier now than in years!!

I had been dealing with anxiety and depression form about 6 yrs on multiple medications. I made a decision that I did not want to be on medication anymore and went off them. I was doing well for a few months and felt myself falling back into the “hole”, back into the depression and anxiety. This was very scary. I did not want to go back on medication and sought out alternative ways to cope/deal with these problems. I decided on some cognitive therapy as well as acupuncture. I greatly enjoy the way Kathy starts her sessions with talking and seeing how you have been and ending the sessions with acupuncture. I also really like the integration of tapping along with acupuncture. It gave me a way to work through my difficulties on a daily basis. Tapping gave me a tool to use in the moment of anxiety and depression and enabled me to be more aware of my thoughts. Some acupuncture treatments energized me but usually I feel calmed down and puts everything back in alignment. Through acupuncture and some other therapies I am 8 months without medications! There were many ups and downs and sometimes I thought medication was going to be my only way, but through the work I have done with Kathy with talking and tapping and acupuncture, I am finally at a place in my life/body that I feel in control. I still know life brings hard times, but now I have the tools to get through them and come out the other side a better person. I took a few months off from acupuncture and then had a setback, but know that Kathy was there for me. I went back and was able to get through this time more easily. I am a Physical Therapist and have used some of the things I have learned in acupuncture in my work. I believe it has allowed me to become more balanced within as with everyday life. I think everyone should try acupuncture. It has greatly improved my life and provided me with a safe solution to dealing with the intricate workings of my mind.

I had been experiencing chronic headaches, fatigue, and an overall feeling of being out of balance. I knew I had to do something different. Kathy made my 1st experience with acupuncture inviting, warm and easy. She listened, asked thoughtful questions and gave me time during each session to share how I was doing. After my first visit, my headaches subsided. After a series of treatments, I felt so much more like myself ie; sleeping better, more energy, less neck/head pain. I’m honestly amazed at how helpful the acupuncture was and did not expect to feel as good as I do! I highly recommend Kathy and acupuncture. She has given me tools I can use indefinitely. Thank you so much for your wisdom and experience Kathy!

No one I have previously sought acupuncture treatment from has anywhere near the level of expertise and skill of Kathy. She has a remarkable gift for being in tune with the precise issues a person needs treatment for. The stresses of life completely unbalanced me to the point that fear and anxiety ruled my existence. Through treatment and her guidance, Kathy has led me to enjoy life without anxiety. I am beyond grateful for all she has done for me.

Rebecca Losh, Dillon Colorado

I was seeking help to manage stress and for wrist/thumb pain. I had immediate positive results. My thumb/wrist pain is now gone. I definitely experience relaxation and an sense of being “in the moment” with treatments. I would recommend this to others.

H.G. Dillon Colorado

“I came to Kathy seeking relief primarily from anxiety and panic attacks. I had previously treated those problems with prescription medications. I disliked the side effects these meds came with and wanted a different solution. Kathy made me feel at ease throughout my treatments. I would leave my visits feeling refreshed and relaxed.

As I’ve moved forward with treatment, my anxiety is in better control than it ever has been. As an added bonus, we’ve also been able to improve issues I’ve had with sleep, headaches, and digestion. I recommend acupuncture to everyone I know. My treatments have truly changed my life. I feel Kathy has been able to help my body to regain the ability to keep itself in balance. Her treatments have given me a natural solution to my problems without needing to continue prescription medications. I feel stronger in my mind and body and more confident in myself. Kathy cares deeply about me, and always puts her all into my treatments. I think she is a wonderful and very capable clinician.”

Meredith David

“I started seeing Kathy for acupuncture after my Mom died suddenly. At the time I was having daily migraines, stomach problems, anxiety, stress and depression. After 6 weeks of treatment, my symptoms were diminished greatly. I was able to cut back on pharmaceutical meds and receive benefits from the acupuncture and Chinese herbs. We are now working on treating my perimenopausal symptoms with success!”

Regan Wood

“My original reason for visiting Kathy was a knot in my shoulder that was affecting the feeling in my left hand. Since my first treatment, I’ve noticed I am a much easier going person. I have much more energy, a sense of well being that I haven’t felt before. My negative perspective on life has gone away, I’m no longer feeling depressed or panic, I’m able to let things go (mentally). My shoulder feels much better!! Thank you, Kathy.”

“After a session, I leave more refreshed and full of energy, and have an unshaken inner peace. It can give you the tools you need to handle any difficult situation and do it with grace and confidence instead of fear. I have gone toanother acupuncturist before, but Kathy Castrigno is the first that has dramatically been able to heal me so quickly with ease.”

Prior to acupuncture I was experiencing numbness in my arms as well as sciatic pain. I felt a huge difference even after the first treatment. Kathy has been able to adapt each session to meet my current needs and allow me to continue my active lifestyle.

I was a skeptic at first, but I now see that acupuncture works well. I had knots in my back from built up tension, they are gone now! I haven’t had any more since. It was my first time with acupuncture and I loved it. Very unique but works.

Scott Lunn, Keystone Colorado

Cutler Himes of Dillon, Colorado talks about his experience with Kathy at Frisco Acupuncture with relief from back pain. Here is what he has to say…

“Approximately 15 years ago, I was informed that I have arthritis in my Cervical Vertebrae and the condition has begun to manifest itself as knots in my upper back area and frequent numbness in my hands. The knots and muscle tension in my upper back are almost completely gone with just THREE treatments! Additionally, though the numbness in my hands does still occur, it occurs less frequently. I am hoping that with a couple more treatments, the numbness will be gone permanently.”

Myra Musso
Breckenridge, Colorado

I came in for treatment for bad sciatica. The pain was in my left leg. I crawled in and walked out! The treatments were relaxing and mind opening. Heard about Kathy, and glad I came over. My case is a bad one but she helped me out of a jam. Thanks!

Robert Neumann

“I came to Kathy for relief from lower back and hip pain. I am trying to stay away from surgery or narcotics. Treatments have resulted in a lot less pain, clearer head, and I felt better overall.

Dr. Dan Houtchens
Sport Psychologist
Leadville, CO

“I was having very painful back spasms for over a week. Because of the pain I was unable to ski, so I made an appointment to see Kathy. After two visits I was able to return to skiing. On my second day of skiing (after being unable to ski for two weeks) I raced NASTAR and got Platinum, it was my third best result of the year. Kathy really works magic. An extra bonus from the treatment was an increase in the range of motion in my shoulder that I was also having problems with. If you are having back problems the sooner you go to Kathy the better.”

Paul C.

“I came to acupuncture for back pain issues. Right away during my first session my back pain greatly improved. After the treatment I felt so much better. What was a shock to me was that I continued to feel great, even one week after the treatment. I would highly recommend acupuncture to anyone with back pain.”

Aaron Wolen
Stamford, Connecticut

“I was experiencing lower back pain, extending down my right leg. My treatments were fantastic. I had relief almost instantly. I went from being partially crippled, to resuming my normal activities in just a few weeks. Even though I have an aversion to needles, in general I found the treatment painless and relaxing. On my 3rd visit I mentioned a lingering sore throat/sinus problem and Kathy treated me with herbs and acupuncture-my condition has improved 100%!!”

Ned Archibald
Fairplay, Colorado

“I felt great after theacupuncture treatment. I went back to the condo, took a nap, and woke up rested with no shoulder pain. It was amazing. I havn’t felt that way in a year and a half. That night I was able to sleep all night without waking up once. I still don’t have any ache in the shoulder at this time a few days later.”

Lein

“Acupuncture has helped me out in increasing my sports performance….I also enjoy Kathy’s session because they offer tremendous relaxation and stress relief.

Digestion

“I came to Kathy with digestive issues mainly, however stress and anxiety were concerns as well. Each session we would have a comfortable “check-in” at the beginning and then depending how I was doing, she’d plan my treatment around that.

Kathy introduced me to E.F.T., the most useful tool I have for controlling my own anxiety. Is is something I can do on my own. From day one, it has helped me immensely. I have visited five different accupuncturists, and Mountain Rose has been the best on my body. I always leave feeling very centered, brighter and improved.”

Brynn Hayes
Portland, Oregon

“Kathy is amazing! She knows what’s wrong with me before I do. Kathy asked me if I had any intestinal problems at a routine session; I said no. The next morning I was in the emergency room with a twisted bowel. If you listen carefully to yourself and to Kathy, you will meet each day with a new and greater understanding of everything! I feel it is more refreshing than massage!”

Traci Minarski
Blue River, Colorado

“I came to Kathy about a year ago to get help with PMS. As I aged this was getting to a point of interfering with my family and work life. I did not want to be on birth control pills as my physician had recommended. I also have issues with my digestion that I wanted to address. From my first visit, Kathy has been a very detailed listener. She is very easy to talk to. She always takes her time, listens and never judges. In the year that I have been seeing Kathy, my PMS and digestion have come back under control. This has made a very positive change in my personal and professional life. I feel more like myself from 10 years ago. I continue to the take herbs Kathy has prescribed for me and have treatments monthly to maintain my positive results. Thank you Kathy!”

C. F.
Breckenridge, Colorado

“I was seeking treatment for weak digestion. I’ve had about ten sessions with Kathy and noticed a huge improvement in my condition. Before treatments, I had frequent, uncontrollable gas after meals. Now this issue is rare and if it occurs it is greatly reduced and much more manageable. Overall I feel like we’ve made much progress. I couldn’t be much happier with the results and feel like I’m working with the right acupuncturist.”

Fertility/ New Moms

“In 2010 I was fast approaching my due date with a high risk pregnancy and my baby still hadn’t turned. My OB, nervous that we were going to have issues, recommended that I go see an acupuncturist as “they do a far better job than we do and have a higher success rate”. So I called Kathy. She went out of her way to get me in as she was leaving on vacation the next morning. My son turned within 2 days – none too soon. Thanks to Kathy I was able to deliver a healthy baby boy without the concern of him being breach or having a c-section in a dangerous situation. Thank you Kathy, we are forever grateful!”

Jennifer Kempner

“My husband and I had tried for a year to get pregnant without any success. We were not ready for the world of infertility drugs like my primary care physician had recommended, so I turned to Kathy and acupuncture for help. Kathy was caring and reassuring from the moment I met her. After 6 months of acupuncture and herbs we were delighted to find out that we were pregnant. Unfortunately, we had a miscarriage at eight weeks and I was emotionally tired of the “baby wheel.” Kathy encouraged me to take my time and return to her when I was ready. The urge to be pregnant grew stronger and I returned to Kathy after 4 months for continued services. I started the weekly routine of acupuncture, herbs and developing healthy eating habits. After six months, we found ourselves pregnant again. I am excited to share that the new addition to our family will be here in only 6 short weeks!”

Carrie Tellevik,
age 35
Dillon Colorado

“Kathy, I want to thank you for helping me achieve my goal of having a family. I heard acupuncture worked with helping people get pregnant. I was very skeptical at first but you are so easy to talk to and so down to earth it helped me come back week after week. After 6 months of weekly treatments, some herbs along with some doc intervention… I became pregnant, stayed pregnant and now have a beautiful baby girl. Having PCOS, I was faced with challenges; non-existent periods and no ovulation. I believe acupuncture helped with those things and will go again if we want to extend our family even more. Thank you!”

Patty Price

My husband and I were trying to conceive and my cycles were irregular. I wasn’t sure I was even ovulating so it made getting pregnant difficult. The treatments were extremely relaxing and I started to see results and changes in my cycle within a few months. My cycles became more regular and my husband and I conceived without any western infertility treatments. We had a baby daughter in November of 2011! I would absolutely recommend Kathy at Frisco Acupuncture for infertility treatment.

Halle Belby, Breckenridge Colorado

Sandi Schuessler from Idaho Springs Colorado successfully became pregnant with the services of Frisco, Acupuncture. Here is what she had to say about it…

I was seeking treatment to turn my breached baby around in the womb. I enjoyed the calm relaxing room and Kathy’s laid back demeanor. I had only one treatment and it was professional, informative and to the point. My baby was in the correct position the next day.

Phoebe Mills age 39, Summit County Colorado

“I am an RN in the emergency room so I was slightly skeptical about alternative medicine, but had read several articles on increasing success with infertility and acupuncture that peaked my interest. I was also not excited about needles. My experience from day 1 was fabulous and has put all doubts away. Kathy is a great listener and asks great questions. I felt better after each treatment and soon was not suffering from the monthly headache or PMS anymore and had more energy. I have learned a lot about how my eating habits affect my body in general. I am excited to say that my husband and I are expecting now! Acupuncture with Kathy has been a life changing experience.”

Jami Yinger
Buena Vista, Colorado

“Before treatment with Kathy, my husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for over a year. When we finally got pregnant, we had a miscarriage at 4 weeks. I wanted to give my body the best chance for getting pregnant and maintaining as healthy a pregnancy as possible so I went to Kathy for acupuncture. I enjoyed treatments with Kathy at once. She has an easy yet professional manner. We got pregnant and had a healthy baby boy in August of 2011! In addition to helping us get pregnant, I really enjoy my treatments. They help me relax and feel more energized.”

Hormonal/ Menstrual

“I was seeking help with endometriosis and pain associated with ovarian cysts. I also had knee pain, anxiety and liver issues. The treatments have drastically improved my quality of life. When I started seeng Kathy roughly 6 months ago I was a shadow of who I once was. I was in so much pain and had so little answers about my condition or hope that it could improve. Nearly 6 months later and my body and most importantly my outlook has been completely transformed. I am no longer in as much pain and I now have the resources to deal with my condition. I finally have hope I can once again live a relatively normal life. I truly don’t know what I would have done without Kathy and her treatments. I have already recommended acupuncture and will continue to. I specifically recommend Kathy to people struggling with women’s issues and any ailments they might be having.”

Kelly

“I highly recommend Kathy. She is very knowledgeable and empathetic. After the first visit I felt refreshed and relaxed. I stopped acupuncture treatments because we moved out of state, but I will continue to take herbs recommended by Kathy. Having no pain or any discomfort during my period is something a lot of women think is impossible. It got rid of my painful periods – Try it!”

Eva Egbert,

Pinedale, Wyoming

Upon moving to Summit County – I was here almost 2 years & continued to experience migraine and extreme sinus headaches. The episodes were so frequent and painful I considered moving out of the area since I attributed this to the altitude. I tried prescription medication without much effect and too many side effects. With acupuncture, my symptoms were finally under control. In addition I have gotten relief with acupuncture from menopausal symptoms and pulled muscle pain. This is a great alternative to drugs. Herbs are also a supplement to the treatments and maintain the improvements made with the acupuncture treatment. I hope to have this resource for many years to come. Kathy is great – she is smart, knowledgeable, and always willing to research an issue or problem. Thank you very much!

Valerie Lash,

“Due to fibroid tumors, I was experiencing very heavy menstrual cycles that were interfering with my life. I was left depressed and tired. My overall experience with Kathy has been wonderful. I feel like my old self again. I have energy and I’m not depressed anymore. Kathy has also helped with other aches and pains, namely my knee and an old shoulder injury. I have recommended acupuncture to several people. I find acupuncture to be a truly amazing medicine. I plan to continue treatments throughout my lifetime to stay balanced and try to avoid western medicine.”

I first called you after my sister urged me to since you helped her so much. After two months of taking the herbs you suggested, I am feeling a lot better. The fatigue I was feeling with my workouts has subsided, my libido that felt drained has come back to normal, and the headaches that would last for days during my monthly cycle have not returned since the first month of taking the herbs. Words cannot describe my gratefulness for the intuition and knowledge that you undoubtedly combined when considering my situation. I only wish that I lived closer to you to add the benefit of your acupuncture treatment as well!!”

My headaches have drastically improved.”

“Acupuncture has changed my life! Before I began treatment with Kathy, I suffered from chronic migraines and lower back pain. I had been through a battery of tests by medical professionals, only to be told there was nothing they could do. Since I was sure that these pains were real, I knew there had to be an answer. I began seeing Kathy in July of 2005. Since then my headaches have become an extremely rare occurrence and my lower back pain is nearly non-existent. There are no words to describe how positively acupuncture has affected my quality of life. I now see Kathy once a week and look forward to every appointment for both medicinal and spiritual reasons. In addition to helping with pain, acupuncture helps me to feel more balanced and relaxed, which can be elusive in the hectic world we live in. Thank you Kathy for bringing this ancient practice into my life!”

There is no medical doctor that I know of that I could have gone to with all my issues. The medical care that I receive from Kathy has been above and beyond. Kathy truly takes the time to understand everything that I need help with and then makes sure that I understand how acupuncture and herbal remedies can help. Besides acupuncture, it is so helpful that Kathy takes the time to discuss other lifestyle changes that I can make. The personal connection Kathy makes with me is very healing in itself. If I went to a primary care MD, I would have been referred to an allergist or ENT, a psycologist or psychiatrist, another MD for sleep disorders and be on a ton of pharmaceuticals. I’m so happy I just have my acupuncturist Kathy. Thanks!”

“I am a 27-year-old male with chronic sinus problems. After years of seeking medical treatment with unsuccessful results I tried acupuncture. About 5 weeks into treatment I noticed significant results and was able to breathe way better. The combination of acupuncture, herbs and new diet has increased my quality of life ten-fold. I had a sprained wrist and Kathy stuck a few needles in my ankle and the pain was instantly gone and mobility came back immediately. It left me speechless. I was truly amazed!”

“Thank you for all you help, especially with my knee. I could no longer bicycle due to very sharp, motion-stopping pain. With Kathy’s treatments, I could enjoy cycling all summer! What a difference!

Some time later, I find out I needed surgery. After surgery, Kathy’s acupuncture treatments were amazing: some needles in the right places and wow – my knee bent so much further than before. I also appreciate the treatments for relaxation. Those were some of the most enjoyable and I experienced a calmer personality for a couple of days later.

My son seems to be doing very well on the Chinese herbs Kathy prescribed for supporting his system and lungs. He has gotten a couple of colds but no indication of an asthma attack or croupy cough with these colds. This also is something different as in the past; with almost every cold he would need steroids to prevent his lungs from completely shutting down. Summit County is lucky to have such a caring and proficient healer as you.”

“Kathy’s acupuncture treatments incredibly improved my immune system. It is the only thing that has worked for me. Acupuncture has also helped me with chronic pain issues. Acupuncture gives me options for treating my health conditions naturally. Kathy is incredibly talented. She is knowledgeable and compassionate, she has a true gift!”

“I first came to Kathy a year ago for cold symptoms and with one treatment got significant relief. This summer as yet another one of my dreaded sinus infections threatened, I thought of Kathy again. Kathy’s initial interview was surprising to me in its depth and breadth. She wanted to understand my symptoms and asked so much more to advise at a holistic level.

I would have been grateful for just symptom relief, but she supplied much more information about what was likely causing the symptoms and offered information about nutritional changes to affect a permanent improvement. I experienced profound relief for the first time in decades. The acupuncture treatments are painless and downright restful. I always feel respected when describing my issues. I know she listens because she is a skillful questioner. She is also relaxed, gracious, open and has a great sense of humor. Working through the sinus problem so successfully has helped me open up about another respiratory issue. I completely trust Kathy’s expertise and guidance.”

“I really enjoy having Kathy treat me with acupuncture. She is very knowledgable and thouroughly capable! In two treatments on consecutive days, my earache was gone! No pills, medicines, or expensive trips to the doctor with usually very slow results!”

“Not only is Kathy as wonderful acupuncture therapist, she is also an amazing life coach. She has helped me change things I didn’t know I could change – me and my old way. You Can teach an old dog new tricks! I feel happier, more balance and more open. I’ve been sleeping better and my blood pressure is lower!! Her “tapping technique” that I learned helps me to get through rough parts of my day with a positive result. Thanks Kathy!! I’m much healthier now than in years!!”

“I had been dealing with anxiety and depression form about 6 yrs on multiple medications. I made a decision that I did not want to be on medication anymore and went off them. I was doing well for a few months and felt myself falling back into the “hole”, back into the depression and anxiety. This was very scary. I did not want to go back on medication and sought out alternative ways to cope/deal with these problems. I decided on some cognitive therapy as well as acupuncture. I greatly enjoy the way Kathy starts her sessions with talking and seeing how you have been and ending the sessions with acupuncture. I also really like the integration of tapping along with acupuncture. It gave me a way to work through my difficulties on a daily basis. Tapping gave me a tool to use in the moment of anxiety and depression and enabled me to be more aware of my thoughts. Some acupuncture treatments energized me but usually I feel calmed down and puts everything back in alignment. Through acupuncture and some other therapies I am 8 months without medications! There were many ups and downs and sometimes I thought medication was going to be my only way, but through the work I have done with Kathy with talking and tapping and acupuncture, I am finally at a place in my life/body that I feel in control. I still know life brings hard times, but now I have the tools to get through them and come out the other side a better person. I took a few months off from acupuncture and then had a setback, but know that Kathy was there for me. I went back and was able to get through this time more easily. I am a Physical Therapist and have used some of the things I have learned in acupuncture in my work. I believe it has allowed me to become more balanced within as with everyday life. I think everyone should try acupuncture. It has greatly improved my life and provided me with a safe solution to dealing with the intricate workings of my mind.”

I had been experiencing chronic headaches, fatigue, and an overall feeling of being out of balance. I knew I had to do something different. Kathy made my 1st experience with acupuncture inviting, warm and easy. She listened, asked thoughtful questions and gave me time during each session to share how I was doing. After my first visit, my headaches subsided. After a series of treatments, I felt so much more like myself ie; sleeping better, more energy, less neck/head pain. I’m honestly amazed at how helpful the acupuncture was and did not expect to feel as good as I do! I highly recommend Kathy and acupuncture. She has given me tools I can use indefinitely. Thank you so much for your wisdom and experience Kathy!

“I just moved up to the county and experienced a miscarriage shortly after our move. I am all about holistic healing and so because my body needed to be rebalanced, acupuncture was the right choice for me. I started asking around and Kathy was highly recommended to me by another expecting mommy. I gave Kathy a call and instantly connected with her! Kathy has this wonderful way of listening to me and making me feel valued during our sessions. I feel she truly cares about my well-being. Kathy listens to my concerns and how I feel. I have experienced the most “positive shifting” sessions. She has changed my life in the most positive way. I feel healing and restored and balanced.”
