I’ve been receiving acupuncture from Stephanie to address various health conditions I’ve been dealing with since 2009. Stephanie has always taken a calm, thorough, and thoughtful approach with me. Her treatments have helped me tremendously with alleviating chronic pain and fatigue due to Lyme’s disease, hormonal imbalances caused by Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (hypothyroidism), painful periods, and seasonal allergies. She’s always the first person I call/see when I feel the slightest hint of a cold coming on and have found getting acupuncture has helped shorten the duration of my illness.
I also saw Stephanie frequently during my pregnancy…in fact, she knew I was pregnant before I did just by the way my pulses felt. In my third trimester, she helped me through an acute situation of swelling and edema caused by some kidney inflammation I was having – acupuncture and nettle tea infusions had me better in about 4-5 days. Lastly, when I was past my due date (41 weeks 6 days) with my son, I had started experiencing a slow leak of amniotic fluid. I was concerned that my doctor was going to make me come in for an induction using medication, which I was trying to avoid. Instead, I went to Stephanie for an acupuncture induction on a Thursday and 24 hours later I was in labor.
What else can I say? Stephanie has been there for me through thick and thin and I’ve kept coming back because she is such a caring, comforting, and compassionate provider that has helped me get results on my healing path.
