It’s a boy!

“Looking back provides 20/20 clarity. I am now the proud mother of a 9 week old healthy and bouncing baby boy! However, almost a year ago I was struggling with infertility that was going on 1.5 years of failed attempts to become pregnant. Not until after 3 months of acupuncture and the continued unconditional support and encouragement from Hongji, did I fully realize how imbalanced my body was. Infertility causes it’s own stressors, on top of work and life stress, which both left my body and mind fatigued! I felt renewal, healthier, higher levels of energy, and optimism slowly build over the 3 months of treatment. Hongji was a miracle worker! She was able to take me under her wings, instilled a sense of confidence (I was slightly skeptical and desperate, but also hopeful when I started) in me as a result of her high level of competence, her empathic ear, and her professional yet witty personality.

Acupuncture can really help couples who are struggling with infertility—I am proof! I would go back for other struggles in a heart beat—I turned from skeptic to believer through my experience. (She also worked on my chronic sinusitis—which resolved itself as well!!!) I only wish I would have started it earlier! I am confident it can help other couples too—so give it a try!” —Sue S., Saint Paul

It’s a girl!

“After many months of trying to conceive our second child without success, I went to Hongji to try acupuncture as a means for fertility assistance. My OB recommended waiting even longer and then if I still wasn’t pregnant to start on Clomid. That did not make sense to me since I did not have a problem ovulating. Making my body work for me versus chemically altering it seemed like the right decision. From my first visit I felt as if the ‘infertility’ weight was taken off my shoulders. We began weekly acupuncture and herbs. I was enhancing my overall health while being proactive. I also had the added benefit of significantly reducing my stress of trying to get pregnant. I thoroughly enjoyed my visits with Hongji. She is calm, reassuring, knowledgeable, and professional. I’m happy to report after a very short time, I became pregnant with our second child! I am certain that my acupuncture and herbal treatments were a major factor in helping us conceive our beautiful daughter.” —Anne T.

IVF success with acupuncture

“We are firm believers that a couple undergoing fertility treatments could have their chances improved with acupuncture and herbs. We had two unsuccessful IVF attempts (without acupuncture or herbs) in Chicago and felt hopeless. The rollercoaster of emotions was relentless. After relocating to the Twin Cities, my wife met Hongji and developed a trusting relationship. She not only worried about points that addressed overall reproductive health, but understood other emotions related to infertility, i.e. anxiety, stress, depression, etc. We were prepared for our third and probably final IVF attempt. Hongji was great and extremely compassionate to our needs! Thank you for all your help and support during our journey.” —New proud parents, D & E…baby dust to all ttc

Sinus relief with acupuncture

“With over 25 years of chronic sinus problems and infections and trying every nonprescription and prescription medication on the market, I have found that acupuncture and herbs are the only things that relieve my pain, congestion, and itchy eyes and nose and it doesn’t cause drowsiness. I don’t get sinus infections anymore either. It has also greatly improved my memory loss, which is due to information overload and stress. I highly recommend it.” —Gina O.
