Fertility and Hormonal Imbalance
I started seeing Zen in August 2015 to assist with some fertility issues. I thought of myself as a relatively healthy person – or at least I didn’t complain much. I have come to realize that many of the ailments I accepted as a part of my “modern lifestyle” were not things I actually had to live with – they could be fixed! In addition to fertility problems/hormonal imbalances, I had the following symptoms: insomnia, occasional bloating or upset stomach, swelling, poor circulation, neck and back pain, mild headaches, and anxiety. After about 6 months, I’d say my overall health has improved at least 75%. This was my first experience outside of Western medicine and I am so amazed. I sleep soundly most nights, rarely struggle with bloating of any kind, my neck and back pain is managed to a degree that my trips to the chiropractor are few and far between, I feel a greater sense of calm and – most importantly to me – my hormones are finally getting under control.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Zen. She is attentive and detailed without EVER being pushy or overbearing. She is completely upfront about any charges well in advance so you never feel like she is “pulling a fast one on you.” She listens so well, remembers every conversation and takes copious notes, and really feels invested in my health and well being. She is sweet and kind and so good at her job. I’ve gone for weekly sessions and have been taking her custom herb blend and I feel like I’m really making progress in so many ways. I can’t recommend her strongly enough.
UPDATE: 4/19/17 I am now 39 weeks pregnant! Zen and her associate, Katherine, are truly incredible and I can’t say enough about their thoughtful care and personal investment in my health. My husband ended up trying acupuncture out for a couple of months with them and there is no doubt in my mind that it was the missing piece that finally allowed us to get pregnant after years of trying. Zen and Katherine cared for me weekly through my first trimester and have been helpful in keeping me “tuned up” as the second and third trimesters have been underway. I’ve had a very enjoyable pregnancy and I know it’s due to them.
If you’ve tried doctors and specialists for any sort of chronic issue (digestive, sleep, hormonal – anything!) and have only been met with more prescriptions or blank stares, I urge you to give acupuncture a try. – Victoria S. – 4/19/20
After western doctors had told me that they could do nothing about my consistent pain from ovarian cysts, i scoured yelp for a trustworthy acupuncturist and found Zen. I had had success treating ailments this way in the past, and this experience has been different only in the way that it really feels like a treatment. Zen is very calm and organized, and is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. She answers my myriad of questions very kindly, and has been able to inform me along the way about what she’s noticing about my healing process and lifestyle. Needless to say, my condition has greatly improved and Zen’s attentiveness, needles and herbs have really balanced me! I highly recommend. – Elizabeth C. – 1/9/2016
