I first went to Acura after suffering my third unexplained miscarriage. I had been seeing a specialist and the tests he had given me hadn’t revealed any problems. I was frustrated and not ready to give up on having a baby. After a lot of personal research on the problem, I decided to try acupuncture. I had found a study that showed women getting IVF treatment were more likely to successfully conceive while receiving acupuncture treatment, and though I wasn’t getting IVF, I thought that the improved circulation that helps produce better quality eggs for IVF may also benefit me. I have to admit that going into this treatment, I wasn’t very optimistic. I had already foreseen trying it a few times, not really feeling anything and then giving up. Luckily, it was around this time that I suffered a neck injury. My neck was so stiff and painful I couldn’t even properly lie down. I went into my acupuncture appointment thinking I wouldn’t be able to do it and my therapist Yoko, stuck a needle in my hand, wiggled it around and immediately I felt so much tension release from my neck. I couldn’t believe it. My neck still hurt but I could now lie down, and it was only a week later when my neck was pretty much back to normal. That experience sold me and I committed to weekly appointments. Within 3 months a persistent shoulder and foot problem was gone and I was pregnant. I had gotten pregnant before after 3 months of trying, but those pregnancies ended in miscarriage. This time my pregnancy went successfully to term and my baby was 5 weeks old yesterday. I continued to occasionally get treatment while being pregnant and even saw my labour jump started after treatment to induce labour. During all my treatments, I found my therapist Yoko to be incredibly supportive, flexible and thorough in her care of me. She always remembered what was going on with me and tried a different kind of therapy with me when I proved to be resistant to the more traditional approach. I would recommend anyone with fertility problems or other persistent body problems to give Acura a try. Even skeptics may be amazed with the results. Thank you Yoko!
