See what some of our patients are saying about the Holistic Wellness Center of Charlotte:


Takes The Time To Help.
“There is no way to explain what chronic, total exhaustion feels like. When it takes too much of your energy to even breathe, you know you’ve reached a whole new level of daily tiredness. My amazing practitioner, Kristien Boyle, within a period of months, now has me on supplements (primarily Resvero and Tumero) that make me feel “normal” again! To have the energy I used to just to get out of bed and get through my day is a gift that can never be repaid. I am so grateful that he took the time, consistently, to find the underlying problems and begin healing me from the inside out.” – Sunny


Calm and Helpful Demeanor. “I first started working with Kristien about a year ago when, I sent him an email to see if he would work with me even though I live halfway across the country. I’ve never been seriously ill, or had debilitating symptoms, but ever since my mid 20s a steady weight gain, combined with skin issues since childhood, and two pregnancies with gestational diabetes, I knew something wasn’t right. I have worked with many conventional and alternative medicine practitioners over the years, but never was able to get any concrete answers or solutions. I would research all kinds of diets and symptoms to the point where I would become so overwhelmed with information that I would just shut down and not even try to do anything to improve my health. It was time for a change now, though. I lost my own mom when I was 24 and I was determined to do everything in my power to be as healthy as I could for the two amazing kids that I was lucky enough to have in my life. After my first conversation with Kristien, and first round of blood work, we had a diagnosis of Hashimotos. I immediately stopped gluten and haven’t looked back. Kristien always very clearly explains what we are doing and why we are doing it. He takes extra time to make sure and answer any questions I have, and I feel like he genuinely cares about me as a person. It hasn’t been easy – I went through a protocol for leaky gut for six months, which incorporated a very strict diet. It has definitely been overwhelming at times to make such drastic changes; but the results I have achieved have been truly life-altering and have helped me to  commit to stay on track.  While we still have a lot of work left to do, I already feel better than I ever have in my life. I’ve lost 50 pounds, I eat better than I ever thought possible, and I am regularly exercising for the first time in my life. I feel like I have become a more patient and kind mom and wife, I’ve been more focused and successful in my career, and I have this enormous sense of gratitude every single day for the life that I have.  For a Type A personality like me, Kristien’s calm demeanor has been a life-saver. He knows when to push me, but also when to tell me not to worry so much. His knowledge, support and patience have been invaluable. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Kristien’s on my path to optimum wellness. He has truly helped me change my life.” – Jen


Great Patient Service. “If you are looking for alternative medicine, but don’t know where to go, go to Holistic Wellness Center of Charlotte. I see change already, and I was a bit of a skeptic to start.  I think my overall health has improved, too! Effective and affordable acupuncture. Kristien will listen to your needs and help you solve the underlying medical issues you have. The herbs are really great. No need for pharmaceuticals or surgery!” -Charles


We’ll never forget what they did for us! “Dr. Cushing treated my son for autism spectrum symptoms when he was 2 (he’s 6 now). I wanted to take this opportunity to thank him from the bottom of my heart for help he gave us in regards to Evan’s severe reaction to his vaccinations and subsequent development delays he was experiencing at the time. Evan is doing VERY well now! He’s in kindergarten, he was student of the month last month, and he’s getting smarter every day, he even reads a little bit. Anyway, there is no doubt in my mind that had we not done the desensitizing, he would not have had the success that he’s had thus far. I see a lot of kids around that are having problems similar to Evan’s and my heart goes out to them. I wish there was a Dr. Cushing on every corner in this country. I just want to say thanks to Dr. Cushing for giving my son a NORMAL LIFE!” – Clay


Good Listener + Clean Office. “I saw Kristien Boyle for the first time a few months ago. I had never been to an acupuncturist before so I was a little nervous. Dr. Boyle put me immediately at ease. He is very welcoming and professional. The office is very nice and clean, too. He asked me questions no other doctor has bothered to ask me about my health and my overall well being, and he seemed to know how to get right to the core issues immediately. After he took my case history, he did the treatment, which was VERY relaxing. When it was over, I felt like a million bucks. I highly recommend this clinic…Dr. Boyle is obviously very knowledgeable and was able to make this nervous patient very comfortable quickly. I never thought I would say this about going to a doctor, but I actually can’t wait until my next treatment.” -Matt C.


Dr. Boyle is amazing! “He is incredibly knowledgeable and generous with his time. This was my first experience with a holistic medical doctor, and I must say, I am extremely impressed. Dr. Boyle managed to provide a compete assessment and recommendations without me having to visit the clinic (I live about 2 hours from Charlotte). This was important to me given I wanted my first experience to be with someone I trusted. Dr. Boyle truly wants what is best for his clients which is evidenced not only in his thoroughness, but also his check-in emails just to see how things are going. In addition, his staff, including Caitlin, are very kind and quick to respond to inquiries and supplement orders. I plan to make Dr. Boyle my permanent holistic doctor (even after I move to New Mexico at the end of summer) and highly recommend him to others considering an alternative approach to wellness and health!     Tammy Root 04/30/11″


Highly Recommended. “I saw Kristien Boyle a couple months ago.  He was a really good listener, and he was very good about explaining what he was doing and why. I was surprised to find that having needles stuck in me wasn’t scary at all – in fact, I didn’t even feel anything when he put them in! It was a very relaxing and educational experience and I’d definitely recommend going to The Holistic Wellness Center of Charlotte if you are in the area!” -Anne P.

Excellent Service. ” Dr. Boyle has helped with chronic recurring pain associated with repetitive keyboard use, as well provided relief with constant indigestion and gastro-intestinal discomforts, sports related injuries, stress, and insomnia. They are both extremely intelligent about all topics related to the human body, very knowledgeable, and exceptionally professional. I would highly recommend their clinic to anyone who sees the benefit of integrating a more holistic approach to their health care.” – Isaac M.

Good Listener. “I saw Kristien for a consultation and acupuncture treatment and was very pleased with his service. His knowledge of the body’s systems was impressive. He listened to my explanation of ailments 10 times longer than any Western doctor I’ve ever seen. This was my first acupunctue treatment and I would definitely go back for more. The needles were thinner than a hair and I couldn’t feel them going in at all – only tingling and a magnet feeling that I really enjoyed as I relaxed on the table. I highly recommend Kristien’s practice for both the healthy and those seeking healing.” – Kath
