Before visiting Spence, I felt so alone, frustrated, disappointed and sad every month when my cycle would start yet again. Almost all my friends, family and close co-workers were pregnant / having babies. I was surrounded by all these lucky people who didn’t have any problems conceiving so it was hard to find someone to talk to who really understood the ups and downs of what I was going through.
After some time trying to conceive, I became concerned that my body was somehow subtly out of balance. According to western medical methods, everything was completely “normal”, but I had an inkling that my IBS and the years I had spent overseas working in a stressful environment had taken a toll on my body.
I worked with Harris through the whole pregnancy cycle: conception through post-partum.
I first sought treatment with Harris after a couple years of trying to conceive. At my first appointment Harris began to share his wealth of knowledge about conception and I received my first acupuncture treatment.
After 6 rounds of Clomid and a failed IVF cycle, I explored the option of IVF acupuncture for my second IVF cycle. Having acupuncture on my embryo transfer day gave me the confidence that my body and mind were at their epitome of relaxation.
To say that the care and services of the staff at Yinstill were paramount to my success would be an understatement
On the eve of the birth of my first child, I find it important to reflect and give gratitude to the people who played an intricate part of my success. I first came to Yinstill on August 12th,
I strained my arm muscle exercising and through various aggressive movements. It was so uncomfortable and sore, it was distracting me from my work, and I couldn’t lift anything. I received one treatment of acupuncture.
It’s hard to believe I am actually writing this email…but we are really REALLY excited to share that we are expecting a baby!! After nearly three years of waiting and hoping and praying (along with some struggling and crying and pounding our heads against walls),
