I have been going to Anna for the past two years and I only wish that I found her sooner!!! Although she is not a doctor, I have chosen to go to Anna because her methods work better compared to my experiences with doctors. For those who are interested in the results, let me give you a list of issues I’ve had that she has helped me with:

Childless Syndrome
Migraines
Headaches
UTI’s
Hormonal Imbalance
Stress / Mental Wellness
Wrist Sprain
Neck & Shoulder Pain
Boudoir Activities
and so much more . . .

If you are satisfied with that summary, then eye muffs to the following. My journey began when I walked into her office as a last resort for my migraines that plagued me for years. I was skeptical and even remembered asking her how the needles “work.” We talked for a long time and she convinced me to give it a go. What surprised me was when she asked me what other issues I might have. I thought it was going to be a fix one thing and come back for another as they do at the doctors office. She explained that with her needles she can work on a multitude of problems. Again I was skeptical that needles could cure me of my constant UTI recurrences that plagued me for 7 years. But since she asked I told her that I had tests done and went to several doctors who said that the only way for me to stop having them was to take medication daily. I refused and therefore suffered for years trying cure myself. I also never had a normal period and she said she could help me regulate it. Again, with needles?? I figured I would go ona couple of times and be done.

But when I had my first treatment, I felt the most relaxed that I had been in a long time. I decided to try it a couple of more times to give it a chance and even started keeping a headache and migraine log. Over the next couple of months they started diminishing until I no longer had them. I was amazed and ecstatic. Then the UTI’s which I had for over 7 years stopped occurring. That was probably the thing that made me a believer. I still can’t explain it but I know that she made my body healthy without the use of medication. She even warned me that if I wasn’t planning on getting pregnant I should be extra careful as most of her patients did get pregnant. My husband and I were still not sure and the first time that we actually tried, my Childless Syndrome was cured.

There is just so many things that Anna and acupuncture has changed in my life that I couldn’t possibly squeeze all of it into a review. I will say that her acupuncture is only the second reason why I go back to her. She is a wonderfully caring, nurturing, and spiritual individual that you wouldn’t want to go to anyone else! Thank you for changing my life!!

Also, I would be more than happy to answer any questions if anyone has any :)

 
Healing Anxiety

 

Hello,

I first met Anna in December of last year to help bring down my anxiety. I had been suffering from severe anxiety for about 15 years. Nothing could ever be pinpointed as to what triggered my anxiety, it was just always there. I had been taking western medicine before but eventually stopped due to a lack of satisfaction with the results. Physical activity soon replaced the drug for a few years but eventually my anxiety crept up with such a force that I was back looking for treatment again. Some of the symptoms I was feeling on a daily basis were restlessness, irritability, lack of focus, shortness of breath, nausea, and active sleep. This time, I decided to try eastern medicine as an alternative.

My first treatment with Anna by far exceeded my expectations. I will never forget it. During the consultation, I explained to Anna the reasons I had come to see her. Anna was attentive, compassionate, and committed to help me find calm in my life. She explained to me that because my anxiety had been chronic it would take some dedication to treatment to stabilize, lower, and eventually eliminate my anxiety. She stressed that my anxiety would one day be just a memory of the past. The level of my anxiety walking into her office was somewhere between a 7 and 8 (10 being extremely anxious). After the first treatment I can easily say my anxiety decreased to somewhere around a 2 and 3. It was the calmest I had felt in a very long time. My mind felt clear and focused and my body felt physically relaxed.

I kept seeking treatment pretty intensively during the first couple of months. In combination with Chinese herbs, I began to sleep better, have more energy, and lower my level of anxiety on a day to day basis. Where my anxiety used to fluctuate between a 6 and 8, I could begin to see the levels decrease within those first months between 4 and 6. I felt I was making more progress with this treatment than I had with the anti-anxiety medications I had been on in the past.

A testament to this treatment and Anna, was that while getting treated I was also studying for a few intensive professional exams. I used to respond negatively to that type of stress and would usually be a mental wreck days before an exam. With this treatment and Anna’s positive encouragement I felt anxious only 5 minutes before the exam of which the symptoms later subsided. I was more focused and confident in my abilities this time around.

Now, almost to my 30th session, I can confidently say that I am a lot closer to eliminating my anxiety than I have ever been in my life. Anna has helped me get down to a consistent level of anxiety where it now ranges between a 1 and 3. I see Anna now on an ‘as needed basis’ when I feel my anxiety levels get to be too unmanageable. Thank you Anna for helping me find peace in my life again. You rock!
The patient passed his 2 professional examinations with very little stress and anxiety.

If you know of anyone who is dealing with anxiety and needs to be improved, please refer them to our healing center, Elements in Harmony Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. I have been in practice since June 22, 1999. I am here to help anyone and everyone who wants a very calm mind.

 

Thank you, Southern California!

Acupuncture in Pregnancy & Childbirth

 

Pregnancy is an amazing time in a woman’s life. Many women report feeling healthier than they have ever felt before; however, the physical growth of the baby and changes in hormone levels can bring about pain, discomfort and a variety of health problems.

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can provide a safe, effective alternative for many of the health complications that may arise before, during and after pregnancy. A growing number of women are choosing acupuncture to use throughout their pregnancy and as an optional treatment for an overdue or difficult labor.

Planning for a Healthy Baby

Healthy parents produce healthy babies. With acupuncture and Oriental medicine, parents can improve their health to create the most optimal environment for their unborn child. In addition to their ability to strengthen, support, and balance overall health and well-being, acupuncture and Oriental medicine are an effective treatment for regulating menstruation and hormone levels, reducing stress and addressing any pre-existing medical conditions or concerns that a woman may have.

Acupuncture during Pregnancy

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can play a vital role in the comfort of a pregnant woman. There is strong evidence to support that acupuncture is highly effective at treating some of the most common problems experienced during pregnancy including morning sickness, heartburn, insomnia, water retention and sciatica.

Here is a list of some of the problems that an acupuncturist often treats during pregnancy:

    * Nausea and Vomiting
    * Heartburn
    * Constipation
    * Hemorrhoids
    * Edema and Swelling
    * Urinary Tract Infection
    * Pelvic Pain
    * Neck and Back Pain
    * Sciatica
    * Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
    * Leg Cramps
    * Fatigue and Exhaustion
    * Insomnia
    * Anxiety and Depression

Acupuncture for Childbirth

While there are acupuncture points that can provide natural pain relief during labor, acupuncture is more commonly used to induce labor. There are several points that stimulate contractions and influence cervical ripening. There is also an acupuncture point that has been found to turn a breech baby.

Acupuncture Postpartum

Many women feel depleted after the birth experience. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can help the transition of those first few months after birth to ensure a quick recovery. Postpartum care focuses on the physical, emotional and psychological recovery of the mother from the effects of pregnancy and labor, as well as encouraging breast feeding.

Here are some of the postpartum disorders that can be treated with acupuncture:

    * Fatigue
    * Postpartum Depression
    * Mastitis
    * Insufficient or Excessive Lactation
    * Post Operative Healing
    * Night Sweats

If you would like to know more how acupuncture and Oriental medicine ease discomfort and facilitate pregnancy, please call for more information. 

UB 67 for Turning Breech Babies

An acupuncture point on the small toe of the foot (Urinary Bladder 67) has been found to effectively revolve fetuses in breech presentation.

In an Italian study, 240 women at 33-35 weeks of gestation carrying a fetus in breech presentation were randomized to receive acupuncture plus moxibustion (an herb used to apply heat to an acupuncture point) or to be assigned to the observation group. At delivery, the proportion of babies that had turned from breech position to vertex (head-down) position was 53.6 % in the group treated with acupuncture while the proportion of babies that had turned from breech position to vertex position in the observation group was 36.7%.
