"Lindsay is friendly and truly a miracle worker for the body. She takes the time to see you as a whole person."
"I've never met anyone like KO - I joke with friends that she knows my soul better than I do sometimes. KO has been a constant source of light, love and healing in my life for several years. She's an effective practitioner, her bodywork practices are gentle and healing, and she is absolutely committed to helping women find their own voice and power through their health and wellness choices."
"Samantha is a skilled listener and knew exactly the questions I needed to be asked to transform how I viewed previous difficult experiences. She is kind, warm, and absolutely helped me reinterpret the past and be open to a different future!"
"I'm so grateful to The Nest and their amazing care providers! We pay a modest monthly fee for a variety of care if it's needed. It's an unusual model of health care focused on wellness and prevention and a strong relationship with your special providers. Unlike most clinics, we know exactly who we're going to be seeing when we go in."
"Lindsay is simply amazing. She provided muscle/ligament relief I had been struggling with all pregnancy. I only wish I had started seeing her earlier! The Nest is a great place for overall health and wellness, not just pregnancy!
"Dr. KO is a peaceful presence. Always there to listen and meet you with love exactly where you are at."
"You'll meet Lindsay and feel like you've known her forever - she had a way of making me feel comfortable instantly, and that opened me to ask all of the questions I had. Her bodywork was gentle and immediately effective."
"My kiddos instantly adored KO; after 15 minutes playing with the toys in her office my normally suspicious 5 year old asked KO to help her dress her dolly. And I hope to remember that sweet moment of connection between the two of them as the beginning of a beautiful friendship, one that continues until my girls go off to college."
