read moreI did not know much about acupuncture or Chinese medicine when I first went to see Lori. I had been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for over a year and had started fertility treatment with oral medication and hormones. I was feeling stressed, anxious, and depressed about not getting pregnant. Lori really took the time to ask me a lot of questions and did a thorough evaluation before we even started treatment. My acupuncture treatments were very relaxing and I looked forward to them every week.
