Kimberly Bonde, Lic.Ac., RN
Committed to your successful outcome
Acupuncture with Kimberly includes treatments with needles, but it’s more than that. She offers you a unique opportunity to understand and improve your health and overall well-being. As a practicing acupuncturist since 1990 and a Registered Nurse since 1992, her knowledge and skills provide a holistic, flexible foundation for your acupuncture treatment.
Kimberly’s approach is unique because she invests in your health with you in a way that is deeply informed and purposeful. She has an extensive background as an acupuncturist, registered nurse, instructor, professional mentor and supervisor, and she was one of the first licensed acupuncturists in Georgia. Kimberly is also the founder of Intown Acupuncture, which she established in 2001.
Yet despite her level of achievement and activity in her field, Kimberly remains an incredibly warm, personal practitioner. She is wholly committed to helping you achieve your goals.
Eastern and Western combined
With advanced degrees and decades of practical experience in both eastern and western medicine, Kimberly draws from both “maps” of the body to understand what you’re experiencing and to develop an intentional, holistic treatment plan for you. She will listen to you, think deeply about the results you want to achieve, develop a comprehensive treatment plan and closely monitor your progress. Email check-ins between your visits, or a phone call to follow-up with you after other medical procedures is standard practice with Kimberly as your acupuncturist.
Working as part of a health care team
Kimberly’s background enables her to work effectively with the other members of your health care team. In many instances this proves to be an invaluable part of your successful outcome. She has strong working relationships with medical doctors, especially local reproductive specialists, OB/GYN and midwives. Her referral relationships with chiropractors, massage and physical therapists, counselors, clergy and other support professionals is well established. This enables Kimberly to serve as a bridge, with and for you, among the members of your personal health care team.
Education and Professional History
Kimberly attended and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Religion from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts before pursuing her studies in acupuncture at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, MD. She completed clinical work with Professor J.R. Worsley at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa, UK in 1990. Within a few years of establishing her private acupuncture practice in Colorado Springs, Colorado she chose to attend Regis University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. For a number of years Kimberly practiced as an RN, working in cardiology and high risk Labor & Delivery, while simultaneously providing acupuncture care in her private practice. The ability to blend and draw on both perspectives is something that has enriched both professions and enabled Kimberly to provide a broader base of support for her clients.
One of Kimberly’s professional passions involves teaching and mentoring the next generation of healthcare providers. She is a senior faculty member and the former Vice-Chair of the Board of Governors of the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, Florida. In 2003 Kimberly received credentials as an approved acupuncture supervisor for the Georgia Composite State Board of Medical Examiners. Mentoring new graduate acupuncturists as they develop their skills and move into independent practice is a great joy for Kimberly and was part of the impetus for founding Intown Acupuncture in 2001.
On a personal level
Kimberly is happily married, has a talented teenage daughter, enjoys her house full of pets and expresses her artistic side through a variety of colorful visual arts, organic gardening and cooking.
