I was introduced to Becky by my father who sees her for his war-wound affiliated injuries, and after hearing him literally rage for months on end I finally made an appointment. The actual location is connected to the "Kaleidoscope Salon" on Bardstown, so it's right in the main road. When I first went in as a walk in, she had an opening so I sat down and filled out some paperwork( medical history, why I'm here, etc) and then sat down with Becky about techniques we could try. Then we went into the back room (a meditation room for two patients at a time) and Becky examined me and then began the acupuncture session. The needles are practically paper thing so you cannot feel it unless there is a nerve you're working on through your acupuncture( I had like 10 needles in each ear to treat my mental illness issues) but even after that, the point is for you to relax and center yourself while in the session. Becky even added what I believe was called: Mugwort, to help with my energy levels and fatigue. In the session you can even ask to be covered in a aluminum foil "blanket" for retaining warmth in your session- a usual appointment lasts 30 minutes which is perfect for me or else I'll fall asleep from relaxation. And the best part of all is that Five Elephants work as a community based acupuncture office, meaning you pay what you can ($25-$65) so no matter your budget you can benefit from this way of healing. If you've been stuck on some medicine or have an ailment you can't seem to cure, try acupuncture and Becky will definitely help you out!

I have been a client of Five Elephants for a year and a half now. Becky is incredibly professional, kind and knowledgeable. I appreciate her expertise and warmth that she exudes with every encounter. My stress and anxiety subside after acupuncture appointments with Becky. I would highly recommend Five Elephants to anyone!

I'm probably not qualified to write a review of an acupuncturist as Five Elephants is the only place I've ever undergone the procedure. Having said that I have to say that Becky Flynn ( owner and practitioner at five elephants) has made the experience a very positive one. The lumbar section of my spine is very screwed up as diagnosed by CT scan I have varying degrees of bulging, herniated, and completely eroded discs. I went to Five Elephants not knowing what to expect... Becky has a "pay what you can" policy asking for $25-$60 per treatment... I expected a few needles to be put into my back and manipulated... I was very wrong... I had needles from head to toe and the result was that it was one of the most relaxing things I've ever done... Becky is very professional and explains everything.. And most importantly it doesn't hurt!! You really can't even feel the needles going in because they are so slender. I'm hooked on acupunture now after 6 visits and it has definitely helped my back pain... All in all I'd say if you are contemplating acupunture go see Becky at Five Elephants... You won't be disappointed.
