Tori is a skilled and sensitive practitioner who brings science, intuition, and understanding of the human mind, body and heart to her approach. I have been continuously impressed by the way she is able to combine a knowledge of body systems with a keen sense of empathy to tailor sessions that make me walk away feeling more attuned to my body and its own power in the healing process.
Tori combines deep intuition, sensitivity, and humor with an equally deep grounding in technique, Eastern Medicine, and other modalities to facilitate deep healing. My experiences with Tori have been challenging in the best possible way, helping bring about physical, mental, and emotional shifts. Over the years we've worked together, I’ve continued to refer people to her without hesitation.
As someone with significant trauma, I value a safe and supportive space to heal tremendously. The combination of care, expertise, and intuition that Tori provides in each session is as powerful as it is soothing. She is a compassionate and trustworthy guide through the discomforts and challenges that transformation often brings, and working with her has made this process much more easeful, approachable, hopeful and even enjoyable.
I strongly recommend Lark Acupuncture+Wellness for an entirely positive and effective experience. Since working with Tori, my body feels a lot looser and less likely to tense up, and the pain in my back and hip have diminished quickly. I was surprised by how much lighter and more comfortable I felt after just one treatment.
At 2 weeks overdue with my son, I thought I had tried everything to induce labor, but nothing was working. A remote Body Talk session with Tori helped me relax, and I delivered naturally that same evening. I don’t know how she does what she does, but it works!
I’ve been lucky enough to have Tori work on me a handful of times, and each time I’ve emerged with a new perspective: on my body, my mind, and the ways in which the two connect with and influence one another. Tori is as gentle as she is knowledgeable; when she works on my body I feel safe and relaxed, which I'm sure contributes to the sense of peace and release I’ve felt after each of my sessions.
Tori is the best kind of healer — practical, effective, and empathetic. Her practice is intuitive but she's always careful to explain what she's doing and why as she works, encouraging you to participate actively in her treatments, and your own health. I've come to her with everything from sprained ankles and pulled muscles to anxiety and insomnia, and never once walked away not feeling much better than I did when I arrived. Also, her dog is my best friend.
After just a handful of sessions with Tori, I'm starting to feel like a brand new person. I'm not only physically more in alignment, but I've also been purging long buried emotions that really needed to come out and see some sun. It's been so life changing that I'm gifting sessions to my loved ones, because I want everyone I care about to experience her work!
Words cannot express how grateful I am to have experienced Tori’s healing gifts for the last 9+ months. Her compassion, dedication and ability to be fully present during each and every session have changed my life in ways unimaginable. Having tried every spiritual/healing modality on the planet in my lifetime, I have never experienced such extraordinary results and breakthroughs than I have with Tori. She is an amazing and gifted healer and I look forward to the next chapter of her greatness.
Working with Tori is a revelation - she’s deeply intuitive, and can read your body and your emotional state like a book. Because she understands what my body truly needs, she’s helped me identify better ways to care for myself. She’s helped me remove layers of emotion and trauma that I didn’t even know were there. I always walk away feeling seen and cared for and...better. Lots better.
Tori has a healing and gentle touch that provided the release my body needed to get back on the path to wellness. Not only did she focus on healing my damaged knees, but my general overall well-being was improved and enhanced. She is meticulous and thoughtful, and uses a variety of skills and tools -- and amazingly warm hands! Truly a healer’s touch.
When I started working with Tori, I was recovering from a car accident, an 80 hour-a-week high-demand career, and some other life shifts. I had severe insomnia and I was in crippling pain. I had spent over a year seeing every doctor I could think of, to no avail. Even from the first session, Tori’s ability to connect, be present and provide resourceful solutions was a game changer for me. Tori’s enthusiasm for healing is infectious. She is a true healer. Her compassion and energy have revitalized my pursuit of health and I find myself in much less pain, able to enjoy activities I thought I might never enjoy again and sleeping soundly at night.
Tori is a game changer! It has taken me five years to find an acupuncturist as good as Tori. As a massage therapist and dancer, I know my body has been through the ringer. I have a laundry list of injuries from dancing that Western doctors haven't been able to diagnose or help me with, and Tori has been able to reduce my pain tremendously! My body is beyond grateful for her.
Under Tori's care, I have been able to move past pain and tension in my body as well as emotional and mental blockages. Whenever I leave her table, I feel such immense relief and alignment physically, mentally and emotionally. Tori always takes the time to understand where I am a a whole--my physical concerns, my lifestyle, my emotional state--and incorporates this into her treatment. With her, I truly feel as if I have a partner in achieving overall health, happiness and symptom relief.
I’m always surprised by Tori’s ability to locate the source of the issue as well as relieve the symptoms. In short, I feel better, and I value her confidence in me, and in herself, and her sense of humor. So reassuring.
Working with Tori has been life changing! For many years, my older son was aggressive, angry and chronically sick with asthma. I struggled to comprehend why Western medicine was unable to find ways to help my child breathe easily and get better. At first, I was skeptical: what could she possibly offer to help him finally breathe easily? Tori's work provided the essential opportunity for our entire family to reconnect on a variety of levels. Before, we were only focused on our older son's symptoms instead of their underlying needs. Tori's ability to "translate" what our bodies needed to heal truly saved our family. My son who once suffered with immunity and breathing issues is THRIVING after working with her. Seeing my child who once struggled to see the bright side of anything find intense joy in being alive is truly priceless. There will never be enough words to express my extreme gratitude for Tori's innate ability to help our family reconnect.
Tori understands bodies: she listens, understands and can see the big picture, and very few practitioners I've worked with do that. She knows how the physical and the emotional intersect and affect each other, and she knows how external affects the internal. Tori has never pushed me to get acupuncture (I'm scared of needles!), and instead has used the other tools in her toolbox to meet me where I am and gently but confidently guide me through her work.
Tori is the kind of practitioner I’d trust with even the craziest health crisis. Her insight and knowledge are the best you will find, and she will quickly get to the root of the problem to help you heal body, mind and spirit.
