Years ago, when we decided to have a family we were unsuccessful at first. I visited a gynecologist and went through the tests needed but they found nothing wrong. We went to different gynecologists, did various painful tests, procedures, took various medications but to no avail. This saga went on for six years. Being physically and emotionally drained and unable to go through it anymore, we finally gave up.
One day my co-worker told me about acupuncture. Knowing that there were no side effects we decided to give it a try. Although skeptical about getting pregnant, I faithfully went for the treatments. I followed the instructions & advice the acupuncturist gave me. After many treatments, one day I did not realize that I had missed my cycle. I did throw up a few times but did not think it was morning sickness. I thought my body was going through changes due to the acupuncture treatments. I did a pregnancy test and to our surprise I was pregnant. We now have two kids and couldn't be happier.
This got me interested in learning acupuncture. Encouraged by my acupuncturist and coworker, I enrolled myself at the American College of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine and earned a Master's degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. I am now a licensed acupuncturist and love to treat people using Traditional Chinese Medicine. I continued my education to earn a Doctorate degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine with specialization in gynecology.
