  • Are you suffering from gynecological problems, such as painful periods, lack of periods, PCOS, irregular periods, endometrio sis or fibroids? Do suffer from symptoms of menopause?
  • Do you have poor digestion, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or food sensitivities?
  • Are you chronically fatigued?
  • Has stress taken over your life and your body? Do you struggle with anxiety?
“I received acupuncture from Amy for chronic headaches, which were accompanied by nausea. Over the past two years, I would wake with severe headaches that would occur 2-3x week. This made it difficult for me to attend school, concentrate on homework and keep up with classes. I felt relief from my headaches immediately after beginning acupuncture and am now 100% better.”

Amy is amazing. She takes ample time to talk about my health needs and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to treat me. Her genuine care for the patient and her personable skills are what keep me coming back. I had suffered from migraines for many years, but I no longer have them!
“I went to see Amy for PMS and low mood. She was empathetic, caring and patient in helping me to find the protocol that worked best for me. With the right supplements and acupuncture, my symptoms improved dramatically in only a few months of treatment. Amy is intelligent, well-informed, patient and caring. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a natural and holistic treatment option.”

“I wanted to share our good news. Our son was born and he’s a healthy and happy little guy. I wanted to say thank you for all of your support through the IVF process. I really feel like acupuncture helped me significantly. I felt more relaxed and open after acupuncture than during any of my previous rounds of infertility treatments. I am so appreciative of your expertise and care. Thanks again.”

Functional Fertility: Part 1- Food Sensitivities

When it comes to fertility challenges or the label “infertility,” it can be much more complicated than egg and sperm quality or uterine linings. Fertility can be affected by the foods we eat, our immune systems, life stress and structural imbalances to name a few.

Today, we look at food and how it affects fertility. Most of you are already aware of the obvious things when it comes to diet, such as limiting sugar and processed foods, avoiding alcohol and eliminating caffeine. However, many people don’t realize that food sensitivities, even to healthy food items, can impair fertility. (more…)

Gluten & Autoimmune Thyroid Disease: What is the Connection?

It is estimated that 90% (1) of hypothyroid cases are autoimmune related. Autoimmune conditions occur when the body misfires its immune response, and makes the target certain tissues in the body. In autoimmune thyroid disease, the target is your thyroid gland, which is disrupted in its ability to secrete thyroid hormones properly. You are probably wondering why your doctor never mentioned this. (more…)
