Fertility and PCOS
After many years of drastic measures of avoiding pregnancy, my husband and I decided, it’s time to start our family, let’s just stop all birth control and if it happens, it happens. Fast forward a few too many years and we still weren’t expecting.

I decided we both needed to be tested for infertility problems. After many doctor appointments and a lot of blood work, it was determined that I was the problem. I was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrom). Basically, I wasn’t ovulating due to a hormonal imbalance. I underwent a few treatments with fertility drugs and also an IUI, with no success. At that point, I was devestated. Not to mention broke and tired of being treated like “just another patient.” We decided to take a break from the Western approach and have a carefree summer.

As summer was coming to an end, the baby bug came right back to me. I knew I didn’t want to go back to the regular doctor, so I decided to find an acupuncturist. I’ve had success in the past with acupuncture and Chinese medicine, so I thought, “What the heck, it can’t hurt.  Let’s try that approach instead.”  After scouring the internet, I found an acupuncturist that was local and her website had a testimonial from another patient she treated with PCOS. That’s when I called Anna to arrange my first appointment.

I first spoke with Anna over the phone, she was very thorough, giving me her expectations and how long treatments may take considering my history. Of course, I was thinking to myself, ugh, “I hope it doesn’t take another year or two to see results, since I wanted to get pregnant years ago. I wanted to be pregnant NOW and I wasn’t getting any younger!!!”  She told me up front, that we’re getting YOU healthy first and when it’s the right time, the things you want WILL happen.

I can’t thank Anna enough. After following her guidance and was diligent with my treatments, I’m now expecting a baby girl in September. I owe it all to Anna and I believe in her work and treatments. Even though she has a bustling, busy health center, she always has time to chat with you and she makes you feel comfortable. I believe the time she spends with each of her patients, contribute to the power of her medicine and the healing ability. The more you open up to her, the more she can help you achieve your health goals.

Even after I achieved pregnancy, I continued with my treatments. I believe my pregancy has been problem-free and I will have a strong healthy baby due to Anna’s help.

I would defintily refer Anna to any of my family, friends or co-workers in need of an alternate route to healthy living. I think she’s the best at what she does and takes pride in her work.

Excited soon-to-be-mommy,
Kristi K.



Yelp Review #48+


Having undergone acupuncture treatments many times before, I thought that I knew what to expect when I went to Anna’s clinic. I felt instantly welcome when I walked through the door. She is extremely personable and made me feel like an old friend. She doesn’t have lead hands when it comes to placing the acupuncture needles, which was greatly appreciated! She even gave me a hug when I left. Her operating hours accommodate working people and her prices are quite affordable. I highly recommend her services.


I am working this Saturday, July 2




There will be some Saturdays that I will be working this summer.  Anais turns 1 year old on July 9, so I will not be in the healing center on July 8 and 9.


I sent out an email with a special for this Saturday.  Please let me know if you did not receive the email and if you are interested in knowing what that special offer is!



On-line scheduling appointment will be live soon!


We will be launching our new option to schedule online for your convenience within a week.  You will see the icon on our website.  This will be our primary way of scheduling.


Some other changes are occuring at our healing center to be more efficient with our time, so that we can provide you a more relaxing and joyful acupuncture experience at our healing center.


Please share any of your ideas, so that we can better serve your wellness needs.


Thank you for making Elements in Harmony a great place to heal!
