Friday quote
My ultimate goal in my work with all women is the same: whether a woman is trying to get pregnant, dealing with diminished health or chronic illness, a teen girl suffering from a painful period or even a woman just wanting to feel a bit more youthful with an acupuncture “face lift,” my intention in every interaction is to allow space for each woman to connect with and hopefully find a little bit of peace in the energy of her own body.

Can I Still Have a Baby at 40?

I’m turning 40 next month.

9 Ways You Can Detox And Prepare Your Body For Pregnancy

For almost twenty years, I’ve been working with women to help them become pregnant.  While I’m grateful for the busy practice, I can’t help but notice that the number of young women (under age 35) with fertility issues is increasing.  Often, these women seem relatively healthy; they tell me that their inability to become pregnant is the only thing “wrong” with them.   My background in Chinese Medicine encourages me to always look at the body as a whole, so I recognize that infertility is just a symptom of a larger, more holistic imbalance.
