“I suffered for seven months from severe muscular tmd (tmj) pain.  I was not able to take care of my family or work.  I consulted numerous specialists with no relief.  In just two sessions with Kathleen I am 95% pain free (and med free).  I am so grateful and amazed!  I highly recommend Artemesia.  Everyone is compassionate and professional.” L.M., Lexington, KY
