The Office Space
Located at the heart of the island, Kari's office is tucked away in a cozy historical farmhouse on the main street of Somesville.
In the warmer seasons, you are given the opportunity to experience your acupuncture session outside. Kari has cultivated a beautiful living willow enclosure on the back of the property looking out over the forest. This option has been a favorite for patients, as many feel extra healing benefits when being out in nature, and Kari often notices that people's nervous systems tend to settle in quicker and deeper when acupuncture takes place outdoors.
It has been the greatest blessing to have found Kari as she has helped me so much on my own healing journey. She creates such a safe, gentle, nurturing space and it is so clear how deeply she cares about each and every one of her clients. Her practice is a beautiful blend of both rooted knowledge and intuition. It has been hard for me to find practitioners with integrity that I can trust especially without their own understanding of what it’s like to walk through health challenges, but with Kari, she gets it, and I always feel so seen and heard. I highly recommend her! -TM
Kari Guillen is an absolutely gifted practitioner! I consider myself blessed to have been both her patient and her colleague. Rarely have I met someone that is more grounded, more joyful, and more intuitive than she is. Kari always makes sure that her protocols and interventions are well researched, and will always make you feel at home. She is a fantastic listener, with a gentle, caring touch. Specifically, I have seen her reduce symptoms of mental/emotional disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, infectious diseases, neurological disorders and women's health issues, as well as relieve chronic pain. And all the while, she will keep you smiling! Keep up the great work, Kari! -SB
