Look no further, Anna is who you want to go to for acupuncture. Not only is she an expert at her craft, but she genuinely wants to help you "graduate" from your pain/issue. It is clear helping people is not only her passion, but her gift.
I had suffered from tendonitis in the past and where time off of work, physical, and occupational therapy failed me, acupuncture worked quickly and permanently. The practitioners however, didn't leave such a great impression. So when my husband and I decided we wanted to start a family, I knew that I wanted to do acupuncture but didn't know who to trust with such a sensitive issue.
A good friend recommended Anna. She received regular treatments and got pregnant fairly quickly although her doctor had told her she wasn't ovulating and recommended fertility treatments. She emphasized Anna's sincere desire to help and recommended I go to her website and read the case studies and watch the videos. I couldn't believe the wealth of information on the website and how comprehensive her work was! This convinced me to give Anna a try.
At the time I was 34 and by western standards on the brink of "high risk." After my initial consultation Anna had put all of my fears to rest. I was actually excited about the journey to motherhood instead of fearful. I began regular treatments 2-3 times a week and looked forward to each one. I had never felt better in my life. I was sleeping better and had great energy. Long story short, I became pregnant after trying for 1 month!
Soon after, morning sickness hit. I suffered from severe nausea and again looked to Anna for relief. I continued my regular treatments and the symptoms subsided to a manageable level. As my pregnancy progressed she treated me for the typical issues: fatigue, back pain, heartburn, etc. At 9 months, I got a severe cold and acupuncture again came to my rescue as I couldn't take any medication. Just one week later, my baby came! Labor was fairly easy and I healed very quickly as Anna said I would.
Acupuncture kept me in great shape both physically and mentally.
I have since recommended Anna to numerous people and endorse her work completely. In fact, she is the first person I will go to with a medical issue. I don't entirely understand how acupuncture works, but it DOES WORK! Give her a try. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
