I had 6 sessions of Acupuncture around August and October last year for fertility, after struggling to get pregnant naturally over 2 years. I can happily say that I got pregnant last December around Christmas and today is my due day. Although all my test came good, doctors only offered to put me on hormone treatment for 3 to 6 moths "to maximise my chances". It didn't sound right to me. Why a healthy person has to be on treatment? It just doesn't make sense in my head. I am a very healthy person with a very healthy life style so I was determined to try EVERYTHING but not hormonal treatments. I did tones of reading and research day and night about natural therapies, foods for fertility, magnesium supplementation, daily hour walks, yoga, temperature charting, ovulation time -crucial - read the book 'Taking charge of your fertility', castor oil packs, Preseed and of course Acupuncture (the needles on the lower abdomen I believe really help to keep things moving -totally convinced-) All of the above combined together help me to get here and graciously wait for my little angel to arrive. i will go for Acupuncture again to induce labor if nothing happens between today and the next 10 days and will use Moxa sticks if the baby turns breech at some point. Acupuncture was very good for value.
I contacted Wholistic Wellness and start the sessions straight the way. Janette was fantastic, very approachable and very professional. The premises are very clean and tidy and the rooms are very cozy (soft music, nice scent, very relaxing, etc). I truly believe the Acupuncture played a major role in helping me to get pregnant - i have no a doubt! The treatment lasts an hour with 30 minutes of needles on and another 30 of whole body massage from head to toe. Absolutely super relaxing!! I wanted to stay longer. I even did a cupping session. I could feel the heat running my whole body like if it was really making my energy flow. I most definitely recommend to try acupuncture for any woman struggling with fertility (nothing to loose, a lot to win). Don't be afraid of the needles as they are really thin and very soft, basically, unnoticeable: you have to focus your thinking on the benefit you can get and not the discomfort they may cause you. Janette was very gentle with the needles and with the massage.
