On October 1st, I awoke with stomach pains, tenderness and swelling over my entire abdomen - the most centered pain was just above my navel.  My family physician was unavailable, but suggested I go to the emergency room at St Clares Hospital.  For many years I've had GERD conditions on occasion particularly if under stress, and enjoying some food and alcoholic beverages.  Taking Aleve for knee pain had really aggravated my stomach initially 12 years ago.
I was to take pantoprazole to suppress acid and have an endoscope scheduled on November 25.  The hospital's diagnosis was an ulcer in the duodenum.  I wasn't happy with the conventional treatment so I went to see Karin Johnson at AcuSource in Cedar Grove.  Karin spent time to address treatment and outlined my own responsibilities as to reduced stress, alcohol, diet and weight loss around the stomach area.  Further, I had a series of acupuncture treatments , essential oils and digestive enzyme complexes.  After twenty-three days I stopped the pantoprazole (which was a possible long term need prescription) due to some side affects. AcuSource Healing's treatments resulted in a endoscope procedure that showed NO ulcer and negative lab work.  I certainly can recommend Karin Johnson and an integrated medicine approach to healing.  She is a committed, caring person.

I have been going to Susanne for facials on a regular basis for more than 10 years and highly recommend her. When I first went to see Susanne, I was struggling with balancing the needs of my combination skin, and suffering from cystic acne on my chin. She gave me great advice on which products to use in my skincare routine, and it was not long before I noticed that the cysts were no longer recurring and that my skin was in much better condition than it had ever been. Today, I receive many compliments on my skin, and I know it is all because of Susanne!

Susanne not only gives her clients great advice, but she is also a great listener and really takes the time to understand your skincare concerns and answer any questions you might have. She truly loves helping people look and feel their best!

When we need a break and we need to reconnect, we start off the evening with a couple's sauna at Karin's spa. It's a satisfying and cleansing way to shed the stress of the day, reconnect and heat up our night! We highly recommend it to couples that we work with in our couples' classes. Thanks, Karin, for providing this private and quiet environment.

It is such a pleasure for me to take the opportunity to sing the praises of Karin Johnson,R.N., Dipl. Ac., C.A. I have been suffering for most of this year with a re-occurrence of Sciatica. I am a 60 year old woman. Despitemany wonderful chiropractic and therapeutic massage treatments which gave me some relief, I was still having difficulty walking and doing regular chores around the house. I am a teacher and standing in front of my classes became very painful; I couldn't be my usual animated self with them. It was fortuitous that my chiropractor knew of Karin Johnson's work and referred me to her. The next day I was at her office in Cedar Grove, N.J. and three hours later I emerged a new person. That was June 2nd and one month later, after weekly treatments of acupuncture, I am doing amazingly well. I attribute my recovery wholeheartedly to Karin's knowledge, experience and caring touch.

When I got my first foot detox I have to admit that I was a bit of a sceptic.  I had no idea the amount of toxins that I had in my body.  After sitting for the detox for about 20 minutes I could definitely see the “results” in the water.  Not only could I see what toxins were being removed but I felt more energetic and “light” throughout the day.  The detox has definitely helped me improve my level of stress and all over body function.  I would definitely recommend that everyone take part in this amazing process.

Easy access to a far infrared sauna is a great resource. It's just what my doctor suggested to help improve cell  health and the immune system. Karin's knowledge and work with essential oils has been an unexpected and added benefit helping with stress relief and other ailments.

After taking the Aqua Vida ionic detox 4 days ago at AcuSource Healing my feet feel lighter and more flexible. I am able to walk with so much more assurance. I can also flex and roll my ankles without feeling a cramp beginning in my calves or toes. This detox system has been really beneficial and I wish I could take a whole bath in it, but I am looking forward to my next foot treatment, anyway! Thanks again for wanting to heal us and moving me in that direction.

"Frank raved about you. I’m glad that you were able to relief his pains. I’ve been passing your cards around still because people don’t believe how pain free I’ve been. I can actually feel my bones in my left ankle of late which surprised me!! Thank you Karin!"

"I have not only visited the website of this lovely spa, but had the opportunity to visit it many times. Karin and staff are always calming and a relief to see after my busy work schedule. I am calm within minutes after I walk into the spa and hear the music and know that I am in good hands. The treatments have been very helpful to my many quirky ailments which Karin always makes sense of for me and I believe the treatments have prevented me from other problems I would have if I did not treat the ones I had. Thank you all and best wishes.

“The weeks before your wedding can be very stressful and intense. I should know, I just got married and my life was hectic to say the least. It was during this time a friend recommended the facial rejuvenation treatment. I read up on it and being prone to being a little red faced, I thought I would try it hoping that it would help me look fresh and healthy for my special day. I have to say that this was one of the best choices I made. Not only did my face feel wonderful and look great, the treatments gave me a few moments to relax and truly enjoy the experience. Karin’s practice is located in a tranquil environment and when I was there, I had not a care in the world. She helped me relax in that very hectic week before the wedding and that was a welcome additional result of the treatment.”

“I am a fitness and nutritional professional by trade, and I take exceptional care of myself while educating and helping others to do likewise. So when I developed bad allergies a year ago, it was something that I had a hard time dealing with knowing how well I take care of myself, and the clean lifestyle that I have. I am very particular about what I will put into my body, so treating my allergies with drugs was not an option. I heard about Karin’s acupuncture practice through my brother, so I thought why not give it a try. Being someone who had never experienced this before, I did not know what to expect. Well I am happy to say that after many sessions using her Far Infrared sauna, several acupuncture treatments and through following her detoxification protocols, that not only did it make me feel immediately better in many ways, but my allergies have disappeared. It has been a very positive experience.”

“I had a suspicious attitude towards non-traditional treatments for medical conditions. Then, I met and worked with Karin professionally. I respect the work I saw her doing as a nurse, so when she told me she could help my allergies with acupuncture, I decided it couldn’t hurt to try it. I trusted her, and told her to perform whatever treatments she felt were appropriate. She did so, and I felt wonderful afterward – just like I had spent a day at the spa! The best part was that all during allergy season, I was symptom free. I strongly recommend this treatment to anyone with seasonal allergies.”

Patti M.-High Blood Pressure

I wanted to contact you to inform you of my progress relative to my recently diagnosed pre-hypertension. After one acupuncture treatment, coupled with one application of ear seeds (strategically placed to target nerves directly related to my heart) and one foot reflexology, my blood pressure has gone down to a normal level. In addition to the treatments you administered, I have also been following the advice you gave me as to certain lifestyle changes such as meditating, limiting my salt intake, and adding lemon oil to my morning green tea/hot water. I’m very pleased with the decision I made to contact you and engage in your practice. I look forward to future sessions/treatments on an as-needed basis. Thanks for all your help.

Lisa M.-Foot Detox

We have seen great improvements with my son, who has Autism, he is 9 years old and his speech has improved greatly since starting the AquaVida sessions. He has started February 2009 and his last treatment we did was on Saturday, September 4, 2009. His behaviors have decreased, his attention in school has improved. He was speaking in one or two word phrases and now has increased to full sentences and his understanding of the language has improved. He absolutely enjoys his foot baths.

I have also seen great improvements with my daughter, who is 11 years old, with ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia, and a Type 1 Diabetic. She looks forward to her sessions for she said she feels more relaxed and not so hyper. I have seen a change that she is actually listening to what we are saying and understanding what our requests are….before we would repeat and repeat. Her reading level has improved since starting the treatments too. Her energy level has increased for she likes to play soccer and she is more energetic this season.

I, myself, love the sessions too. I feel more focused and able to complete a task. With two children I am able to keep up with their requests without so much frustration, I feel more calm and able to perform the tasks. I sleep better and wake up more refreshed. I have Carpal Tunnel, and my knees creak – after having a session my joints move more freely as if they have been unlocked. My hands do not cramp up or get tired and numb anymore.THANK YOU.
