What our Clients Say

Linda R.

I would drive by and think to myself I should give acupuncture a try. I am thankful I finally stopped and made an appointment with Karen Hayes. She has made a big difference in the way I am now feeling today. At the end of every appointment, I feel rejuvenated and so relaxed. Karen is a very special person who knows what her clients need to make them feel their best. In one word, she is magical. Thank you Karen for all you do.

I love Karen Hayes' silent meditation and mindfulness retreats! The preparation and work she puts into holding space with such presence and love are truly remarkable.  And her poetic use of language opens my heart and enables me to work with my busy mind with care and humor. On a recent retreat she led, I was working with some aversion to the weather and lack of sleep – and was not sure I would be able to make it through the remainder of the retreat.  During our one-to-one meeting time, Karen normalized what was going on for me and through her guidance, intuition, and kindness, I found myself smiling throughout the rest of my time there.  And after it ended was so present and open.  It has definitely enhanced both my formal and informal practice. We are very fortunate to have Karen Hayes in our community. Her approach to mindfulness is so accessible.  She is a gifted teacher and provides a solid foundation and many useful tools for practitioners of all levels.

She has also taken on creating and leading our silent retreats. Her dedication, skill and care in doing this has been remarkable. She is wise, caring and has the capacity to hold the space for the weekends to unfold. As one of the participants from our last retreat wrote-- "Karen, wow....Thank your love, your leadership, your time care and wisdom in taking such good care of us this weekend. I am so grateful.”

I had the privilege of taking a meditation class with Karen. We met several times in a small group and Karen was warm and welcoming. She was accepting of all levels of skill, making one feel very relaxed in a new experience. Karen’s ability to teach meditation was impressive. She not only systematically broke down the parts, explaining the rationale, she also had a thoughtful style of guiding the novice practitioners. She is so respectful and compassionate in her interactions. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to meditation. One comes away from interactions with Karen feeling calm and balanced. It’s a gift that I’m grateful she’s sharing!

Karen helped relieve nagging back pain for which I am grateful. Her knowledge, deep sense of caring, and calmness made me feel comfortable immediately; and her skill as an acupuncturist made my back feel better.

Acupuncture provided relief for me during difficult times of stress. It allowed me to leave my appointments feeling totally relaxed, which I truly needed at that time. Karen is easy to talk to and pays attention to making sure you are comfortable throughout the appointment. She also recommended a Chinese herb in addition to the acupuncture sessions that would further aid in bringing ease to my situation.

I went to Karen Hayes because I was dealing with sheer exhaustion and lack of focus and concentration.  I had not slept through the night in over 5 years.  It was affecting every area of my life. All along, I had sought help from doctors and nothing ever seemed to make a difference. The first thing Karen did was listen wholeheartedly to me, which demonstrates how much she genuinely cares and understands.  She took a look at my tongue and immediately told me I have poor digestion. I hadn’t ever mentioned my stomach aches to her and the fact that I had cut so many foods out of my diet due to cramping and bloating.  She promptly recommended a Chinese herb and said it may take a while for the benefits to take hold.  The first day I took the herbs I slept through the night and every night since!  I am like a new person who gets at least 7 hours of sleep a night and no longer suffers from stomach aches.  I have reintroduced foods that I had cut out and am able to tolerate and digest them with no issues.  I tell everyone I know about Karen.  I got my sleep back because of her and that literally changed my life!
