Beachside Community Acupuncture stands out from other acupuncture clinics because of its practice model and atmosphere. The only privately owned community acupuncture clinic in the Dallas area, we offer treatments on a sliding scale of $30-$50, plus a one-time initial consult fee of $15, so patients choose how much they'd like to pay based on their personal health budgets. (In private practice, an acupuncture treatment can cost up to $300.) We suggest patients stay a full hour to get the most out of their treatments, and because we have one big treatment room, people can book back-to-back appointments with their family, friends, or co-workers and enjoy their hour of relaxation together. Our entire clinic is designed to simulate a beach oasis, so many patients wake up after their treatments thinking they were in their favorite vacation spot, which is a nice change in landlocked Dallas.
...every individual should be his or her own health advocate
...the path to health shouldn't be a secret
...everyone should have access to affordable holistic medicine
...the beach can heal aches of the body, mind, and soul
...it is our duty to preserve beaches for future generations
MEET OUR OWNER: Kathleen (Ellerie) Ketola, L.Ac., Dipl. O.M., was born and raised in Boca Raton, Florida, loving paddle boarding, kayaking, sand volleyball, and really any other activity in the sunshine. Her passion for health started when she was in kindergarten as she memorized the organs and bones and colored in photos from her mom's medical textbooks. She taught herself about nutrition, herbal medicine, and essential oils growing up and pursued Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology and Nutrition at the University of Florida. After graduating she immediately went on to earn a Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and Bachelor of Health Science from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine and moved to Texas, where she treated patients in private practice at clinics in Plano and Rockwall before starting Beachside in November of 2016. Outside of work, she loves reading mystery novels, practicing yoga, and bicycling, still preferring to be outdoors as often as possible.
Kathleen Ketola is also the media liaison for Beachside Community Acupuncture and can be contacted at (214) 417-2260 or KKetola@beachsideacupuncture.com.
I had been struggling with pain in my left wrist for a few months. I had tried massage, chiropractic, and nothing worked. Kathleen was able to relieve my pain in one session. That was two years ago, and I'm still pain free today with full range of motion and use. Thank you! -A.B.
This place is such a hidden gem. I was hesitant to do acupuncture because of past unpleasant experiences but I am so grateful to have done it here. Never would I have imagined this type of clinic existed in DFW. Kathleen is so passionate about her job and it is truly inspiring. It has been an oasis to relax and sleep better at home. Thank you for opening and being a great resource in the community! -A.A.
In addition to helping our community through our services, we also strive to produce easy-to-understand, useful content that guides people through their health journeys and teach the basics of self-care through various outlets.
