Kim Kinjo helped me after my medical diverticulitis diagnosis and antibiotic treatment. The Ayurvedic herbs and oils, the food suggestions, Kim’s soothing and sensitive massage hands all contributed to a true and lasting healing. It’s been several years now that I had diverticulitis and I have no recurrence. My digestion is now good which is certainly in a big part due to Ayurveda. In addition, the Nasya oils, healing information and Ayurvedic treatments for headaches and sinus issues have also lasted. Kim’s centered and calm presence is so appreciated. ~Nora Nausbaum, flutist and Alexander Technique teacher.
My health philosophy is holistic. I consult MDs for acute situations and alternative practitioners for chronic conditions and ongoing wellness. Kimberly Kinjo was referred to me for a chronic dry skin condition. Our first consultation helped reveal the cause of the problem, according to Ayurveda. The solutions she offered were easy to implement and effective after a short period of time. Her compassionate professional manner, experience, and expertise have led me to see her on a regular basis for ongoing wellness. I highly recommend working with Kimberly on an ongoing basis.

Kim Kinjo Ayurveda was truly a godsend to me. After struggling for a couple of years with IBS, Kim’s treatments, especially with the herbs and oils, have greatly eased my discomfort and suffering.

Deepest gratitude to Kim Kinjo for her Shirodara treatments! The warm oil, infused with herbs gently smooths out my anxiety and my overactive mind, thus allowing me to find new ways of managing my mental energy and stress. Kim’s beauty and graciousness are just as calming, with the space she holds during the session. She allows me to go more inside, to “tune in” to my own inner guidance, the mark of a great healer in my opinion. — Elena R., musician, singer-songwriter
Thank you so much for your patience and guidance in helping me understand the Ayurvedic way back to good health. When I look back at the lifestyle choices I’ve made in the past I’m amazed that I’m still healthy at all.
Today I can tell you that the knowledge you’ve shared and the changes I’ve (finally) made in my life have pretty much eliminated all of the intestinal pain I had been experiencing. I know so many people who could benefit from Ayurveda if they would just stop to consider what our western way of life and diet is doing to us. I wish you much success in getting the word out! Love and gratitude, Jack H.
Kim has so much experience and knowledge of Ayurveda and herbs, and she is very thorough when she works with me to determine what will best support my health. She has such a pure heart and gentle touch, and I felt so held and comforted during my Anuvasana Basti. I love receiving Bliss Therapy, especially the Shirodara and Svedana. Working with Kim is such a profound and healing experience! ~Lore Ross, Channel, Author, and Solo Mom

I have been seeing Kim Kinjo since 2014.
My experience with Kim has truly been a profound and earnest Sacred Restoration of Healing Impulses. Kim was recommended by another health practitioner who recognized the onset of stress/trauma related symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis. She said “whatever you’ve got going on that is causing you pain and grief Kim can help you restore your health”.
When I first saw Kim I had already seen a few practitioners – both allopathic & alternative. I was open to advice while firmly committed to non prescription drugs. When I asked her if she would be willing to be on my team she agreed with humble confidence.
When working with Kim She seemed to allow the body to take the lead with its own healing journey while accessing deeper layers of restorative impulses. Through reliable and predictable movements my “pain body” learned to relax and release and trust that healing was possible. Through Kim’s dependability and her gentle confidence I too learned to listen to my body and to trust its healing journey. My attention grew inward, more sensitive, tolerant and forgiving of whatever was causing the ongoing pain – which could roam everywhere and anywhere unpredictably.
Over the years, Kim bore witness to my tremendous and sometimes acute joint pain, although with each session my body learned to trust her expertise and her spiritual wisdom. Kim has provided both a therapeutic healing experience as well as a conscientious witness to my needs and my prognosis. Her objectivity and her self discipline became reliable measures of my own progress while inspiring me to continue.
Furthermore, Kim’s respect for all healing modalities and all individual choices taught me tolerance for my own medical and moral dilemmas along this healing journey -especially, given the unpredictable nature of symptomatic RA.
Within three to four years my blood tests normalized and I began the slow, gradual process of restoring trust in my own body/mind’s ability to reclaim my own ambulatory independence – and freedom, which could be ongoing.
Kim’s confidence, professional skill and expertise are imbued with her devotional presence and faith in the ancient techniques of Auyervedic medicine. I feel truly blessed to experience Auyervedic practices with Kim. Experiencing these practices has been Humbling and Empowering and Restorative on the Sacred dimension — Awakening to new possibilities of the divine within as well as in relationship.
To what do I owe my healing? To the mystery of the human encounter, respect for the existential circumstances of the condition and trust In those who have the discipline to practice out of medicinal traditions of a restorative nature. In my experience, Kim is exemplary of the potential possibilities of Auyervedic practices. ~Judith Mary Kutney, M.Ed.
