What people are saying about Beachside...

This place is [an] amazing, friendly, and eye-opening form of therapy. I have tried everything to get me on a healthy track for my body. I was nervous at first but it's so relaxing and I feel great after treatments. I would definitely recommend acupuncture here and for soo many health benefits. -R.K.


I am an older runner suffering with chronic Achilles' tendinitis and traditional medicine was not helping. I just wasn't healing. After some online research I learned that acupuncture was effective in treating the Achilles. It doesn't actually heal it directly, but increases blood flow to the area, allowing the body to heal itself. I decided to give it a try. The results were amazing. My foot started to feel better within a few days, and I was able to ramp up to run a half marathon while my foot was healing, feeling better all the time. Kathleen did a fantastic job! Highly recommended! -D.W.


Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and have your health improve while you nap! Patient, kind acupuncturist, inviting office with an oceanside theme, and beautiful, comfortable beach room, uhm, I mean treatment room. -E.L.


I'm so thankful to have found Beachside - it's in a great location, and you immediately feel relaxed when you walk into the office. Kathleen is such a caring and kind person, and she will listen to anything you want to work on during your treatments. The chairs are SO comfy, and you will enjoy some quality quiet time while you are there. Definitely give Beachside a try if you haven't yet already - you will wonder why you waited so long to try acupuncture! -C.C.


I have to make a confession. I'm really afraid of needles of any size. However, I wanted to try acupuncture for a long time, and I'm glad my first time was at Beachside Community Acupuncture. Kathleen was very professional and explained how everything works. I didn't experience any discomfort because of the needles, but all the tension in my muscles went away. Looking forward to my next visit! -E.B.


Met with Kathleen for my first visit. She answered all my questions. The treatment was painless and restful. Looking forward to next week's visit. Great way to treat pain without harmful drugs! -B.O.

This place is so peaceful and inviting! I love that Kathleen takes the time to get to know her patients to truly understand what they are experiencing before doing any acupuncture treatment. I also love that's it's affordable and convenient! -T.B.

For three years I suffered from sinus headaches that got progressively worse. Thus I was having to take more and more Tylenol Sinus that was taking longer to work. These headaches turned into migraines that began to interfere with my life. I would suffer anywhere from three or more a week. I knew I couldn't keep going like this so I sought Kathleen's help. It has been two months and I have been headache-free. It was amazing as is her talent to heal. -C.C.


Truly enjoyed my experience here and fully intend to return. I was very skeptical, but had heard wonderful things about acupuncture from friends. I'll be the one shouting it from the rooftops now! Great, clean facility. Super relaxing environment. -K.M.


Love!! I fell in love with community acupuncture on a recent trip to California. To be honest, initially I thought the community setting was just an inconvenience I'd have to put up with to find a reasonable priced acupuncturist. But, the practice of community acupuncture really grew on me. I think so many times we feel isolated in our health struggles, and laying all alone in a Dr's cubicle kind of compounds that alone feeling. When I'm in a treatment room with others, even though we don't interact, it's soothing to know that I'm part of a community seeking to take back their health. I've been seeing steady results under Kathleen's care. She's kind, soft-spoken, and amazingly knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to getting more advice on nutrition from her, too. And, good news if you're afraid of needles. Kathleen has a super light touch, and you might not even feel them! -K.W. 


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. 


Kathleen was great. I had been having some stress and anxiety, bordering on panic attacks and when Kathleen was done it was like a weight lifted off my shoulders. Bonus- I could not feel the needles AT ALL. Looking forward to my next treatment! -P.R.


I've been seeing Kathleen for a few years now and can't imagine my life without her - really. I began suffering from constant pain in 2010 and went through numerous chiropractors, massage therapists, and a couple orthopedists. Not one of them has been able to relieve my constant pain and discomfort like Kathleen. She makes acupuncture affordable and accessible - not something I thought was available - but doesn't compromise her level of care. Anyone curious about acupuncture should...go for a consult. She's wonderful. -M.C.

I had an amazing experience! I highly recommend you see [Kathleen Ellerie] and check out her space. I have never felt so relaxed. I was in a trance and her office is sooooo lovely. Sometimes we need to make time for ourselves. Thank you. -V.C.

I've used Kathleen's acupuncture center twice in the past year to help with migraines. I rarely get headaches or migraines, but when I do, they last around 36 hours and I don't respond to the medication. It was a relief to find an alternative treatment to alleviate the symptoms. Her treatment area is relaxing with dim lighting, recliners, and the sound of beach waves in the background. I couldn't feel the needles at all, either time. Great treatment and the acupuncturist is kind and knowledgeable. -S.G.


Kathleen is wonderful at what she does and the office environment is so relaxing. Being a huge fan of the beach, I love what she has created for an acupuncture setting. I felt like I was floating when I left yesterday, thanks Kathleen :) -T.T.


I had a great experience at Beachside Community Acupuncture. Being from out of town but needing acupuncture, Kathleen was able to fit me right in. I even squeezed in one more session before leaving town. So glad to have come across Beachside in my travels. I was needing relief from pregnancy related low blood pressure. My treatment took the edge off and made me feel much more balanced. Thank you so much! -E.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!



I love coming here!!! I feel comfortable and trust Kathleen. I feel relaxed every time I leave and have seen improvements in my skin. I would definitely recommend! -J.K.


This was probably one of the best experiences of my life. Meeting Kathleen and talking to her really made me feel comfortable. She just draws the information out of you in a friendly conversational way. And the room was serene and beautiful. Kathleen really knew what she was doing and after just one session I feel so much better. I will definitely be going back. -A.B..

Fantastic relaxing acupuncture location. I highly recommend a visit to this stress relieving oasis! -M.E.

I am so glad to have discovered Kathleen and Beachside! My past acupuncture experiences were extremely effective so when I moved to Dallas I searched for a community acupuncture environment. This is by far the BEST and most thorough community acupuncture experience I have ever had. Her patient intake was extremely thorough and the first visit was personalized and the perfect opportunity for her to establish rapport with new patients. She is light-handed so you don't even feel the needles being inserted. She makes you feel comfortable, welcome, and relaxed from the very start. I highly recommend Kathleen and Beachside! I love that she provides affordable acupuncture care in a calm and welcoming environment. I love it and highly recommend! -S.S.


I finally got up the nerve to pursue acupuncture treatment for my shoulder and wrist pain and chose Beachside Community Acupuncture, based on reviews on Yelp and Google. I appreciate the fact that it is made affordable by Kathleen. Being my first experience, I didn't know what to expect, but upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised at the clinic environment. I liked the "community" setting, where there are several recliners in a room decorated with beach scenes along with relaxing ocean wave background sound. Kathleen has a very precise and gentle technique when inserting the acupuncture needles. I didn't expect them to be so fine! I never felt pain or discomfort in any way. The hour session was extremely relaxing and although I wish I could say that my pain was eliminated, I did feel some relief. I plan on several more visits to keep driving the pain away. Kathleen knows her craft and is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend visiting this professional. -J.C.


Found this little gem tucked away in Addison a couple of days ago. Kathleen was awesome from start to finish. Since it was my first time there, she took a very thorough medical history and asked me several questions. This was all to get the best treatment possible. Once that is completed you go into a large room where other patients are to receive your treatment. The room is very quiet with the lights lowered, and with calming music in the background. Everyone is very respectful as far as being quiet. It's recommended that once the needles are in to stay put for about an hour. It was actually peaceful to sit there with no worries and have time to myself. It actually allowed me to have a big emotional release which I what I have needed for the longest. The pricing is more than reasonable. I definitely want to go back again and keep going with the treatments. -T.L.


An extremely relaxing experience from a wonderful soul! -J.D.
