Although the scientific relationship between acupuncture and weight loss is still being explored, it is commonly known that the insertion of acupuncture needles into certain points on the ear and other parts of the body can result in relaxation and calm, making it easier to handle anxiety, frustration, stress and other emotions that lead to overeating. In addition, acupuncture releases endorphins in the body that can help balance metabolism. Read More

I highly recommend Karen Siegel for your care with nutrition counseling and acupuncture treatment. I have collaborated with Karen for over 10 years on the care of mutual patients, and she has demonstrated an exceptional understanding of the treatment of patients with eating disorders.

I wish I could just say “KAREN IS THE BEST, THAT’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.” :) but I understand, everyone has to find their match. I’m so glad I found you, Karen. Seriously, I hope you understand the magnitude in which you have touched my life. Thank you for everything. Love you lots.


Karen respects and combines both the medical field and the world of acupuncture. She uses her knowledge plus any other medical opinions to find the right treatment course for you. She is very professional, not pushy, and you feel right at home the minute you meet her.

I initially went to Karen for nutrition counseling. I have had issues with food for 20+ years. Her straight forward, but kind and caring approach helped me to quiet my food demons. Karen suggested accupuncture to assist with some mild depression, digestion and sleep problems. The office is very comfortable and Karen’s tender touch helped to ease my nervousness about the needles! I immediately felt better after each session and noticed a significant change in my sleep and stomach problems. Through both counseling and accupuncture Karen has helped to improve my quality of life.

I have trouble sleeping and have had digestion and stomach issues most of my life. After my very first treatment with Karen, I immediately noticed that I was able to sleep through the night and had much less discomfort with my stomach. Not only is Karen extremely knowledgable, but she is extremely kind and patient and works with each of her clients to make sure they are comfortable and are actually seeing results. I would HIGHLY recommend both acupuncture and Karen to anyone who has any pain, sleeping issues, stress, digestion issues, etc.

Karen is a wonderful Acupuncturist and a knowlegable Nutritionist. I would recommend Karen to everyone, however, especially to those who have tried everything else with no positive long term results. I came to Karen with lower back pains of 7 to 8 (out of 10) and on a lot of pain killers. Through Acupuncture and herbal remedies my pain is 0 to 2 and I no longer use pain killers. I have an eating disorder and Karen worked with me to create a healthier and more sane food plan.

I’ve seen Karen several times for various issues mostly relating to being an older, active ice hockey player. One visit was to address a wrist injury after I put up with pain and not being able to use that wrist for months. Yes, I am the type of guy who will put up with pain and not go directly to the doctor. The wrist really bothered me! As I was on the table being treated by Karen and just after she inserted several acupuncture needles, she asked me to lift my arm and move my wrist around. Miraculously, the wrist was pain free and it has been 100% ever since that visit.

I went to see Karen for stress and anxiety issues and her treatments really helped me a lot. Not only did it improve my mood, but it also helped me overcome the gastrointestinal symptoms resulting from my stress. If you would like to explore another avenue to health care, I highly recommend acupuncture, and I highly recommend Karen!

Karen is a very professional and compassional caregiver. She was always on time and delivered excellent care. The acupuncture and herbal treatments were helpful to me and I would highly recommend her to anyone in the future. She is also very knowledgable about eating disorders and nutrition.

Cindy R.

I have seen Karen for both nutrition and accupuncture. She is excellent at treatment in both areas. She has helped me tremendously with allergies and arm and neck pain, and has been especially adept as a nutrional counsellor. I cannot reccomend her highly enough!

Jacob G.

Extremely helpful in providing physical and emotional relief in times of need. Karen was able to help with several of my pain issues. Highly recommended.

Sam Q.

My husband has had serious issues with allergies. We were referred to Karen’s acupuncture Houston clinic by a friend of ours, and boy, is she the best acupuncturist Houston has ever seen!!! After a couple of acupuncture treatments he is been feeling a lot better. If you are looking for acupuncture in Houston don’t look anywhere else!

The attention I received at Karen’s office is something I’ve expected from other caregivers and never found. I felt she was very present with me, knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend her services.

I came to the Acupuncture clinic to accomplish one goal: quitting smoking. I had no idea how easy it would be! I’ve been a smoker for 10 years, and have tried quitting in the past. I have never found it easier to quit (and to stay quit) than I have with Acupuncture and Nutrition Clinic. George and the other staff all have all been incredibly supportive, and I know they’re on my side in helping me get back to what really matters–living a healthy and happy life! I would highly recommend to anyone considering quitting that if you have the desire and want your life back–go to Acupuncture and Nutrition Clinic. You can do it! And Acupuncture and Nutrition can help! Do it!
