An Encouraging Message from a Woman Business Owner
I am writing a number of short articles about women business owners I very much admire with the hope that their stories and advice will spur other women to follow their own dreams and passions as well. It certainly takes courage to take risk and start one’s own business.
I have been receiving care from Holistic Health Care Centers in Lisle, IL, a Chicago suburb. I am very impressed with the people at the clinic. Everyone is happy, would not want to work any place else. This is because of the leadership of Dr. Kimberly Leupold.
I asked Dr. Kimberly if she would share her story with me and advice she could pass along to other women.
About eight or so years ago, in studying holistic medicine, she knew this kind of care is truly needed by a great many people, and she wanted to provide it. She wants to help people, and this is still very much her only mission. At the time, Dr. Kimberly was essentially broke, and with a young son, she decided she would switch careers, to “go for it”. While not a super confident person, her deep faith in God allowed her to take the risk. She rented space to offer her holistic care with the belief that if you truly understand the source and reasons behind your fear, and face it, you have a good chance of succeeding.
Dr. Kimberly is quick to acknowledge that she has very supportive parents and an inner circle of friends who are encouraging, and she has role models in her life whom she looks up to. In addition, she can take confidence by looking back on her past accomplishments. These factors, and the fact that she is by nature a disciplined person, helped her proceed with a small investment to participate in a business coaching group, from which she benefited greatly with ideas and a self-assurance that she could take risk with a good chance of succeeding.
Dr. Kimberly gives full credit to her team members, who are highly capable and dedicated to same mission she shares, to provide excellent holistic medical care. They are a true team. Financial results are not part of her thought process. In fact, she tries not to even be aware of how the practice is doing financially, as she focuses on caring for their patients.
Interesting and not surprising are the facts that every employee has stayed since they first joined Dr. Kimberly, and they each have a wonderful relationship with her, knows that she greatly values and cares about them personally and their well-being – and that the practice is growing beyond even hopes, thanks to referrals by happy patients.
Having one’s own business brings work/life balance issues, no doubt. It is a challenge, and one must learn how to adjust. While not easy, being organized, disciplined, and valuing our principles, will help greatly.
In summary, Dr. Kimberly believes if you have faith, will take risk, have people in your life who are helpful and encouraging, and believe in yourself, we can step up to the challenge of following our dream with a good chance of success and a highly satisfying life.
Acupuncture and Energy Medicine Eliminate Patient's Sciatica Pain
As noted in Dr. Leupold's biography, she is very experienced in pain management. Before she joined us, one of her patients agreed to be interviewed regarding his complete elimination of sciatica pain. Prior to his acupuncture and Healing Touch treatments, he often missed work and was basically bedridden due to the pain. After only two treatments, his sciatica pain was completely gone. He received his treatments over six years ago. He is still completely pain and symptom free from sciatica.

Acupuncture Eliminates Shoulder Pain
I am in my 60's and have a very active lifestyle. I first saw Dr. Kimberly as a result of shoulder pain. I play softball regularly in the Spring, but was having trouble being on the team this year due to significant shoulder pain. After one acupuncture and tui na treatment from Dr. Kimberly, my shoulder pain disappeared. I also noticed an increase in energy after the treatment. The energy lasted for quite a while. I was so impressed by the treatment results, I continue to see Dr. Kimberly a couple times a month just to support my active lifestyle.
Emotions Are Connected
I knew acupuncture from Dr. Kimberly helped some of my health issues and injuries, but I didn't realize it was also helping my emotions. Dr. Kimberly always tells me everything is connected, but I didn't really understand how or why. Then, one day I has having a treatment for shoulder pain and she explained she thought it was based on an emotional cause. I told her I had injured my shoulder and it had nothing to do with my emotions. As soon as she put an acupuncture needle into my foot I burst into tears. Some things from my past that had haunted me for years suddenly came into my thoughts.
After the treatment, many things changed. My shoulder felt much better, headaches I was experiencing disappeared, and emotionally I felt different. I suddenly felt able to deal with and let go of some deep emotional pain that I had been living with for years. I guess things really are all connected.
Dr. Kimberly has treated my young son many times. At many appointments, he had high fevers, earaches, and irritability. Somehow Dr. Kimberly managed to relax my son enough to treat him. After every appointment, my son improved considerably. I remember I took my son to her with a 104+ fever. I was very worried. Dr. Kimberly used massage, tui na I think and colored lights on him. The whole appointment took less than 20 min. By the time we arrived home, his fever had broke and he was hungry and thirsty. The fever broke in less than 15 minutes after Dr. Kimberly treated him. After that, I began taking my whole family to Holistic Health Care Centers!

Pre-Patella Bursitis Case Study. Please refer to the pictures on the left hand side.
62 year old male came to Holistic Health Care Centers, LLC seeking treatment for pre-patella bursitis due to an injury. The patient has a very active and busy lifestyle and travels for work weekly. The patient spends much of his day standing or sitting with his leg down. The patient received one acupuncture treatment on 5/28/13. The patient reported a remarkable decrease in discomfort and swelling. The patient returned for a treatment 5/30/13. Due to the patient's hectic travel schedule, he only had time for a short acupressure treatment on 5/30/13. On the left hand side are pictures showing the difference of swelling after only one acupuncture treatment between 5/28/13 and 5/30/13. The only treatment intervention this patient has received was a treatment from Holistic health Care Centers, LLC. The patient continues to receive treatments at Holistic health Care Centers, LLC based upon his travel schedule availability. Please return here for updates to this case study. Thank you.
