“I did not know much about acupuncture or Chinese medicine when I first went to see Lori. I had been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for over a year and had started fertility treatment with oral medication and hormones. I was feeling stressed, anxious, and depressed about not getting pregnant. Lori really took the time to ask me a lot of questions and did a thorough evaluation before we even started treatment. My acupuncture treatments were very relaxing and I looked forward to them every week.
But Lori’s treatment was much more comprehensive than that. She gave me detailed nutritional & dietary recommendations, herbs to supplement my treatment, as well as other methods of coping with stress and getting myself in balance. My acupuncture/Chinese medicine treatment really made me feel like I was doing something proactive for my body so that I could increase the chances of getting pregnant. I ended up stopping my western medical fertility treatment but continuing with the acupuncture, herbs, & dietary changes. I was pregnant about 3 months after starting acupuncture.
I continued to have treatments weekly during my pregnancy. I now have a beautiful 19 month-old daughter! I am so thankful I was introduced to the world of acupuncture and Chinese medicine and I’m especially grateful that I have such a compassionate and knowledgeable practitioner.”
