Meet Kathryn

Kathryn Coppola has a passion for helping everyone get on the path to being a healthier and happier person. This passion, coupled with her dedication to the science and art of Chinese medicine is the foundation for Madison Acupuncture & Natural Health.

Like the treatments she practices, Kathryn is balanced by science and the biological explanation for the success of acupuncture—and by the wonder of what the body knows, but scientists can't yet fully explain.

Her studies included a mix of traditional Chinese acupuncture and the more gentle Japanese form of acupuncture. Armed with both systems, she has a broad range of tools to tailor her treatments to every body.

Madison Acupuncture & Natural Health is a proud member of Dane Buy Local and Wisconsin Society of Certified AcupuncturistsKathryn also contributes monthly articles to Nature's Pathways magazine.

"This was my 1st experience with acupuncture & I was apprehensive.  Kathryn's calm professional manner reassured me.  She asked pertinent questions & listened thoughtfully to my answers. The treatments were painless & skillfully administered.  I was relaxed at the end of each session.  I felt cared for & in good hands.  Kathryn is an intuitive healer."

"I was treated by Kathryn for systemic fatigue last year. Being a Japanese style acupuncturist myself I was very impressed with her level of skill in palpation and needling. Her touch is delicate and her intent is focused. I was very please with the results we achieved especially knowing how hard it is to increase energy using needles only. I truly enjoyed her treatments."

"Kathryn was excellent, very knowledgable and patient. I was very very glad to have a session with her. She did a great job!"
–Carmen L.

"Kathryn was incredibly patient and playful while treating my one-year-old daughter's eczema. She put us all at ease, myself included. She used pediatric-specific instruments that fascinated my daughter and Kathryn allowed her to play with some of them. My daughter enjoyed it so much that we would give each other pretend 'treatments' at home afterward."
