I feel very fortunate to be under the care of Natalie Allard for the past seven months. As a medical doctor, I was initially skeptical of the benefits of acupuncture or other practices of complementary and alternative medicine. However, I knew when I first met Natalie that she was very knowledgable about her specialty, and her warmth and experience made me comfortable and confident of her skills. My husband and I have been trying to start a family for several years and have been through two pregnancy losses. One due to severe preeclampsia at twenty weeks and the other from blighted ovum. After the second loss, my cycles were irregular, and I decided to try acupuncture. One of the reasons I chose Natalie is that she practices in such a convenient location, and I am so grateful I did. After several weekly sessions, my cycle became regular and I noticed relief of other symptoms of liver qi stagnation as well. We conceived in September, and my pregnancy has been going smoothly now for 18 weeks. The ultrasound was today and my baby girl is healthy and growing appropriately! We look forward to having a new addition to the family this summer!
