Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, sterile, solid needles into specific points on the body to help the body rebalance itself and overcome disease. Acupuncture originated in China over 2500 years ago, and is today practiced around the world. Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy for treating a variety of medical conditions, including pain, gastrointestinal disorders, gynecological problems, allergies and asthma, insomnia, stress, depression and anxiety, menopausal symptoms, infertility, fatigue, sports injuries, colds and flus, and more.


Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage refers to manipulating superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various hands-on techniques, to enhance physical function, aid in healing process, release tension, and promote well-being.

Our skilled massage therapists combine a wide variety of massage techniques together in any given treatment, thereby tailoring your massage to your unique body and condition.


Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine operates on the same principles as acupuncture. It utilizes medicinal plants and minerals to rebalance the body's system and overcome disease. Chinese Herbal Medicine is given to patients in a formula containing 4-20 herbs specific for the patient's unique condition. At Stepping Stone Acupuncture & Wellness, we offer herbs in pill form or as a ground powder from which you can make a tea. Chinese Herbal Medicine can be a strong adjunct to a course of acupuncture treatment, and may be particularly recommended in cases of digestive upset, women's health issues, sleep problems, and respiratory infections. All our herbs at Stepping Stone Acupuncture & Wellness come from companies in the United States who abide by GMP practices.

Karl and Marcie have created a very special wellness practice right here in Wellesley Hills. Every practitioner I have seen has been excellent at their craft - Karl, Marcie, Gerlie, Marissa and Erica. Everyone needs a little Stepping Stone in their life.

I see Marcie for acupuncture and Marissa for arvigo therapy and therapeutic massage. Marcie is one of the owners and is super knowledgeable and kind. She is patient, listens to me, and is never pushy when it comes to scheduling appointments. I can't say enough nice things about her.
I found this place because of Marissa who I met during my first pregnancy at her class at Laughing Dog Yoga in Wellesley. While trying to get pregnant the second time around she told me to see her at Stepping Stone for Arvigo therapy and now that I'm pregnant I see her monthly for therapeutic massages. She has such a wealth of information for hopeful and expectant mothers and is very supportive. I could go on for days!
All in all, everyone I've interacted with here is so kind and has a sense of calm about them. I always look forward to my appointments!

I have been treated by several acupuncturists over the years for neck/shoulder pain, arteritis, sleep problems, etc and no one compares to Marcie and Karl. They are both kind, professional, caring, and extremely knowledgable. As a massage therapist, I recommend them to both my friends and clients!

This review is long over due. I've been seeing Karl for several months now and he has completely changed my life. I've suffered from terrible tension headaches for years- I've tried everything from muscle relaxers to Botox and nothing helped. After one session at Stepping Stones I noticed a huge difference. For my initial session I was really impressed with the complete medical and wellness background Karl took. He asked questions I would have never thought were relevant to my headaches but it turns out it's all connected. Karl uses a combination of acupuncture, scraping and cupping to help relieve my muscle tension. Every time I come in he checks in with me to see how I'm doing physically and mentally and then tailors that day's treatment to my answers. My headaches have substantially diminished in frequency and pain level since I started at Stepping Stones.
