You have a lot of options when it comes to choosing an acupuncturist, but how do you choose? I encourage you to ask yourself- what are you looking for in an acupuncture experience? What aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine speak to you? Is it the foods and herbs? The energy and qi? Have you have been reading research studies about the physical benefits to uterine blood flow and hormones? Has your doctor recommended you add acupuncture to enhance your fertility treatments? Have you been hearing about spleens and kidneys and liver qi and are intrigued to learn your Traditional Chinese Medicine constitutional pattern?
So what is the Pure Point experience like? It's warm and comforting. You feel cared for and supported with plenty of personal one-on-one time. The space does not feel like a doctor's office, so you can work on your fertility without being triggered and reminded of a medical clinic. The space is a comfortable sanctuary of peace with s small neighborhood vibe. There are pillows, beautiful rugs, and painted wood floors. There are soft colors, velvet curtains, and flowing fabric ceilings. The rooms are cozy and sweet and one is even affectionately called the "womb room". You can feel the authentic work we do when you walk in the door and take a breath, and you leave feeling renewed. Patients describe Pure Point Acupuncture treatments as the perfect mix of connecting with a friend, a hint of therapy, a relaxing body treatment, and restful meditation.
What is my style? I am a listener. I am a connector. I work intuitively and study the connections between the spirit world and the physical world. I believe in signs and I believe in timing. I have been doing this for a long time, eleven years and counting. I've lived through terrible menstrual cramps, infertility, bedrest, and C-sections and I understand first hand the the struggles, conflicting emotions, and loneliness of this difficult path. I am a gentle acupuncturist and get great results without pain and deep needles. I am honest. Some women get pregnant their very first cycle of acupuncture and some take several months. I am a trained herbalist, but I'm not pushy and I respect boundaries. If you don't want herbs, that's fine! We will talk about diet and foods you can choose that can help your body. You can speak your truth with me and I will not judge. You can laugh and cry and I will be right there doing the same.
