“Alaethia is a skilled healer and among the most talented healthcare providers I've ever encountered in my 14 years as a patient of Eastern medicine. Whereas most practitionrs use basic approaches to treat a limited scope of illness, Alaethia rasises the bar to tackle complex health issues with innovative, thoughtful and highly effective treatments that integrate a braod variety of proven tools of Chinese medicine. Alaethia is also a skilled health communicator, patiently talking patients through the treatment process, anwering questions like a teacher instead of a medical textbook, and building a partnership with her patients to improve their health together. I especially recommend her to those who have never experienced acupuncture or Easter medicine more broadly; I've entrusted her with several "first timer" friends and colleagues to her care because of her incredible ability to guide even the most skeptical or scared individuals through the treatment process. However, as a publc health consultant, perhaps my highest accolade is that despite living halfway across the country now, she remains my primary healthcare provider, entrusting my own health to her for more than three years.” February 9, 2010

Nicole Kramer,

I have gone to Alaethia numerous times for anything from sinus troubles, to general malaise, on up to severe shoulder problems. Every time I have been diagnosed adeptly and walked out with immediately noticeable results. Not only is her on hand treatment exemplary, she always follows up to ensure that the desired results have been achieved. I have and will continue to recommend her to all of my colleagues and friends for everything from massage work to acupuncture through to herbal medicine.” June 5, 2010

Alexis Finch,

"I  have had a lot of body work, mostly from highly experienced and respected Chinese Medicine practitioners.  From the first treatment I had with Alaethia about two years ago, it was immediately clear that although she's young, she's very gifted.  So I switched to Alaethia full-time instead and refer everyone I know to her.  She has a simultaneous intuitive and intellectual understanding of my body.  Her treatments are specific to my constitution when I feel like other practitioners treated me formulaically.  She has a thorough understanding of herbs and takes time to discuss nutrition also.  I appreciate her specificity.  I see Alaethia for every kind of health problem I have from cold/flu to more chronic health issues.  Since I don't have health insurance, I basically use her as my primary care doctor too."              -Yael, Chicago, IL
